_________________________________

I received 2 wedding invitation this month and I'm going to 3 wedding next month. Mind you, not my mum's friends punya son/daughters.. my own friend leh!

Just got this yesterday from my ITB ex-classmate
Her wedding is one day after Keith's...

For Chinese there's an old saying,
"Marry a wife and have a better new year"
.

Duh... For me not true lah... If I get married before Chinese New Year damn rugi you know. Have to give angpaos liao!

And I've became a-semi-experienced-wedding-"sister" (accompanying the bride kahwin to the groom house, for Chinese lah) average 3 times a year.

On Sharon & Bernard's Wedding Day

And everyone who saw me in the wedding, laughed and asked,
"So when is your turn?"


The same answer I give everytime, "When we're ready or, when I get pregnant. Hahaha. Just kidding for the second one"


* * * * *

The reason that my friends used to turn me down when I want to look for them, invited for a drink or gather-gather were:

1. Exams coming.
2. Got tuition.
3. No transport
4. My mum/ dad don't allow.

And now it's...

1. I want to company my boyfriend.
2. My husband not at home, no one babysit my anak.
3. I got OT tonight.
4. I'm tired from work and I don't want to go out anymore...

* * * * *

From age 3 - 16, I woke up at 6.10am, go to school.

12.35pm finish school, then 1.30pm go tuition or extra class.

4.00pm play volleyball or basketball.

6.00pm come home, shower, eat dinner, watch minimum 2 TVB drama tapes (3hrs altogether) so tomorrow can show off in school say "Eh, episode 11 come out liao, you see already or not? Wah, yesterday night I watch until 1am you know!"

Conclusion - Never really felt tired at all.. Like I just drink 10 bottles of Red-Bull like that.


And now...

(Previously when I worked in CFK)

I wake up at 8.00am, go to work at 8.30am. One hour lunch break, and go home after 5.30pm.

No energy to do any exercise. Go home straight away shower, ching-chai eat instant maggie mee or Indomee and sit infront of the monitor and start yawning at 9.30pm...

(When I work as a teacher)

Wake up at 6.30am, arrive school at 7.10am. Eat lunch. 2 - 4pm is my usual beauty-napping time. 5 - 7 pm surf or watch tv. Then shower and eat dinner. Then watch TV or surf again till it's time for bed..

And yawning starts at 10.00pm....

Why? Tell me why?

Everyone who starts working already surely can feel it! We all felt so tired and lazy.... Except for FRIDAY and SATURDAY!!!


And on Sunday, we become gloomy by night again....

Wake up and start cursing on every Monday morning...

Monday is a hard way to spend
one-seventh of your life


* * *

The common topics talked with friends were:

Eh, study liao ah you?
Which chapter you study oh?
Wah.. Paper I so damn hard, hope Paper II will be easier.
How's your GCE O'level result?
What you want to study after form 5? Sixth form or Foundation in Uni?
What field? Business? Computer Science? Engineering?
Which Uni?

My boyfriend
Your boyfriend
Her boyfriend / his girlfriend
That stupid b*tch from the other class/ school.

TVB that drama so nice.
Why are people crying for Titanic?
[Insert any boy bands of your choice] damn cute.
What's on MTV or Chanel V?
The Top 10 hit singles...

And now is...

This company and that company?
Private sector or government sector? Or maybe Shell?
Which bank got higher interest?
Car loans... Insurance...

The brand of make-up and facial care products.
The latest season of LV/ Gucci/ Prada/ Ferragamo and so on..
So and So's husband have affair outside.
Stupid boss and b*tchy workmates.

[This is for married woman and mother]
The brand of pampers and milk powder.
The soya sauce is cheaper in Hua Ho than Utama Grand by $0.10.
Which school to send my anak?
That tuition teacher not good, this tuition teacher baru good.
The scored of son/daughter's classmates.

Are we all getting boring or what?

* * *

When I see a 15yrs old boy holding a 13 yrs old girl's hand, hugging and kissing..

When I over-heard three 12yrs old girls saying, "You know my boyfriend, he's just so gorgeous... yadda yadda yadda"....

When I see teenage girls wearing super hiong make up (Super smoky eyes + purple lipsticks) and wearing super sexy or punk-punk, pink tee, pink skirt, pink socks, pink shoes, here pink there pink everywhere pink LIKE A BLOODY FLAMINGO!!!

When I see teenage boys smoking, dye their hair green/gold/purple/white, wearing the usual black tee shirt and the damn-loose-jeans-that-if-I-pull-terus-fall-down and have piercing all over the face...

When I see a primary kids having a FM Radio + MP3 player + 2.0MP camera 3G phone and look at my lauyah scratch-here-and-there phone...

I roll my eyes and say...

"SIGH...... Kids Nowadays!"

* * *
I asked why the songs released recently are all hip-hop and rap, and I can't understand a thing.. Take the stupid "Fast and Furious... Drift Drift Drift Drift" song for example..

(Initially.. I thought it was a DANGDUT!)

Can't people write a decent song like "I'll be your wish, I'll be your dream, I'll be your fantasy"?

And everytime when the radio plays the song I used to love...

when someone played any of Take That and Savage Garden songs...

(In your case, maybe Boyzone, Westlife, 5ive, N'Sync, Spice Girls, All Saints.....)

I'll shout, "Man... that brings back so much memories"

and start singing my heart out, very loudly!!!


* * *

Reading all that I've said....

Now answer me...

IF THIS IS NOT SIGNS THAT I'M GETTING OLDER, WHAT IS IT ?!

rebelandaliberator said...

its a sign of the new generation.. our generation is no longer the "in" generation, i guess.. we're ol skool..

hey my jeans like that sometimes.. especially my older jeans and when i forgot to put on my belt.. you know what, somehow its more comfortable that way..

JaMie said...

yes. u're getting old. *lalalalalala~~*

Iwan Sanchez said...

hehehe Nonnie!!

I loved this entry lah cos somehow it is really how i felt, u know...

Initially, i tot is it because my thinking have matured but apparently my frens say i am still the childish iwan...

I believe as one grows older, one tend to perceive things in a different way and and we tend to looks thing at different perspective as in other teenagers might tink green hairs looks cool but not for adult like us...

And i tink our mum or dad will say the same things if we are still a teenagers and we dye our hair gree..

betul tak??

So in other words, yes.. WE are INDEED getting old.. lolz!!!

p/s: u are getting po kai liao hor.....

IngSiang said...

I thought it's in KB, Jln muara pula... I'll visit them when I got anak, heeh, or when I got a new brother/sister, LOL! =D

I talk about what student talk and adult talks, lol.. talk about cosmetics even.. and I watch "Ladies First". =)

LuUeE said...

Iwan, always here before me.. heheh.e. you cool bro.. Ya Nonnie, when your wedding. Iwanna eat some free food now.. Married tommorrow ba.

Me and my friends always talk bout crap most of the time. Hmm.. Marriage is still 8 years away from me.. mwhhaha.. Hmm.. Nonnie, if i married at 50 years old, i still can claim ang pau from you?

Maybe at that time you 52, me 50, i go to your house at chinese new year and claim ang pau from you and your son and your grandson.

Nonnie King said...

Bunny : Last year only? I think I start to feel old ever since I left school.

* * *

Rebbe : Ya..we're so "out" and we can't pretend we're "in" anymore because the "in" people will go like, "Ish, auntie ni.."

Ahhem.. comfortable cos the air can go in? Hahhaaa

* * *

Jamie : You'll get old one day too. =p

Nonnie King said...

Iwan : Because you haven't start working yet I guess and.. why you look so young? Goddamnit!

Not fair.. you're one month older than me and I already kana panggil "Aunty" and people think that you're only 18.

I curse tomorrow when you wake up you'll have super eye bags and wrinkle~

Bleh.

* * *

Ing Siang : You are damn different from those young teenage boys I know..

"Ladies First"? What good does it do for you? Hehehe.
Tie your hair or the beauty products or the ways to have small tummy?

Nonnie King said...

Kenny : Sigh.. See, just because we 20+ now and everyone says it's time to get married..

* * *

A-Nonnie-Mus : Hehe. Why don't leave names?

If what I said reminds you of your life, then you must be at my age or older than me.

Thanks for dropping by.

* * *

Luuee : Iwan is my loyal reader mah~

Excuse sir, my wedding does not serve a purpose of giving you free food, you have to give angpao one leh. Where got free meal one?

And... If I kahwin liao, I will not give angpao to my friends, only younger generations can get my angpao nya. You quick quick go have anak then I give lor.

uglyfatchick said...

Horny Ang Moh said...

U R NOT GETTING OLD, U R JUST MATURING LIKE GOOD WINE. I REMEMBER DURAN DURAN, SAVAGE GARDEN'S LEMON TREE, IN FACT I LIKE BEE GEE,ALBA, BONEY M, M JACKSON'S TRILLER ETC. RECENT TASTE IS JAY CHOU LATEST LIKE LISTEN 2 U MAMA, HERBALISH ETC SO AM I OLD? HA! HA! 3 RED BOMB THIS MONTH. SO MUCH ANG POW MONEY GONE. I FORGOT 2 PUT THIS IN AS ONE FACTOR 2 CONSIDER WHEN LOOKING 4 PARTNER. IF UR PARTNER HAVE BIG FAMILY WITH LOTS OF RELATIVE NEXT SURE VERY EXPENSIVE WHEN THEY GET MARRY OR IN FACT U WILL FEEL IT DURING CNY WHEN THEY CUM 2 VISIT U WITH HALF A DOZEN CHILDREN & WHEN U VISIT THEM WITH NO CHILDREN SURE RUGI WAN. HE! HE!

IngSiang said...

It teaches me how to deal with my girl friend next time, haha. Like erm, understand why she spent hundreds on cosmetics? Haha. Just wish to adopt to a bit of girls' interest so I can understand girls, but still, I don't understand girls, most of the time. -.-"

orange said...

well nonnie, let's put this in this way..we had to gone through many stages in life time...so now you are just proceed to the next stage. i believe few years back, you must be hoping that years can pass quickly so that you can be adults like you are now, earning your own money, spending on your own, making your own decisions and bla bla bla..so looking back to the youngers now, they must be also envy what you have now and starting thinking, when can i get older???

So, my conclusion, getting older may not necessary a bad thing, and in fact, WE are not getting older but more mature la...hehehe....

Nonnie King said...

Christina : Seriously, the nick "Bunny" sounds way better than uglyfatchick leh..

* * *

HORNY ANGMOH : THAT'S REALLY NICE OF YOU SAYING SUCH, DESCRIBING AGING AS MATURING LIKE GOOD WINE.

HAHAA. I DID HAD A GREAT TIME READING YOUR POST REGARDING THE HUSBAND/WIFE HUNTING PART.

* * *

Ing Siang : Ok, now it makes so much more sense.

Girls are not for understand (what they think), girls are for treating them nice and caring.

* * *

Orange : Wait. Are you "Orange" orange? The Orange I bought the baby cloths for? Because that "Orange" don't call me Nonnie one.

Hehhehee.

What you said is so true! I wish that I can get my driving license once I turn 18, then get my own car, then work and buy the stuffs I want to buy.

But, now.. it's just as simple as I thought.

So youngster who wish to grow up quicker.. Better cherish what you have now, i.e. YOUTH! (I stil have it what!)

Mature is always the better word that fits right for aging~

BaBy JeE said...

hehehe... Nonnie, so when are u gonna send us your RED bomb? I know its gonna be a BIG BIG one... hehehhee... AHEM* bobby, get the hint?? ehehhehehe

teddY said...

What a busy month!!! And luckily you're not married or not in other people's wedding you'll need to give them angpau XD Many of my relatives are getting married this month but luckily most of them are quite distant (in terms of relationship) and we don't get really much invitations (aka red bombs).

And today is 1st Dec, the start of the earth's most exiciting 31 days!

lexlex said...

what's this ... all the red bomb bringing out your sentimental sides ... ? i think most of us can understand what you are feeling....

Roxine said...

i'll be 18 in about a month. i don't use makeup, i (currently) don't have a boyfriend (we broke up 2-3 months ago, and he has moved on already), my favourite style of clothing: jeans and shirt, my favourite brand: comfort...

my phone: Nokia 2600, my camera:i can never remember the model to save my own life!, i have a lousy, crappy, 'tap-gently-terus-shut-off'mp3 player...

so am i 17 going on 71?

the other day, a bunch of Primary six girls from KB came to my Sixth form school for a visit, amd my god....ruby red lips, smokey bright eyes...N91, iPod nano....God!
