My mother is not a saint

Tuesday, May 6, 2008


As my mother read these previous posts for the past week, along with being very touched, she was also concerned that people would think that she is a saint by the way I’m describing her.  So I have to make her feel better right?  So here is why she can’t reach reached saint-hood yet hehehe – Amma, you asked for it.  All the things that are JUST NOT RIGHT about her hehe

  1. She is too much of a home-bird.  Now that her children have GROWN UP, she must go out more and find hobbies besides talking to and looking after her newest child, Sandy, our sweet dog.
  2. She makes a funny clearing sound with her teeth/mouth after she has eaten a meal.
  3. She doesn’t have a perfect set of teeth :p – one of her front teeth nearly dropped out when she was younger so it is now being held in place by a very small piece of gold (all you thieves out there, it’s not even worth stealing heheh)
  4. She is the queen of NAG (just as a lot of mothers are) – tell her one thing, and she has 1000 things to tell you in return.
  5. She is a major CRY BABY (runs in her side of the family) – she cries during movies, she cries at airports (even when the person leaving is not anyone she knows – just some stranger at the airport hehe)
  6. She is slightly clumsy – when I was younger, I remember her telling me that she slipped and fell under our block of flats on the way home from the market (breaking all the eggs she had bought hehe), she once fell into a small drain near our home, once again, on the way home from the shop. 
  7. She is easily bullied by friends, family and colleagues.
  8. She likes eating too much rice.  You know how I told you in one of my previous posts that she waits till everyone has eaten than eats – well, the flip story to that which we tease her with is that she waits so that she can directly from the rice pot (dumping all the side dishes inside) with a mountain of rice hehe. 
  9. She goes to the market in Serangoon Road for absolutely no reason – with the excuse to buy mutton once a week.
  10. She is a self-proclaimed Dr. Spock/ENT Specialist/Gynaecologist…… – lovingly known to Divya as Ammamma Spock :p
  11. She loves us just WAY TOO MUCH 🙂 – she holds on to too much attachment in life, to us, to our dog (Sandy), to my father when he was alive.  Amma, you must start living life for you now!

I love you 🙂

P.S.  You’re lucky I didn’t expose more about the things I tease you about hehe

    @spillay : She’ll probably have things that are 10 times worse than that! I better start behaving now 🙂
