The Number

October 16, 2008 at 4:45 pm 8 comments

The other day I was chatting with a good friend of mine, who is now seeking treatment to have a child of her own. She did say it was not easy not to be pressured by the whole scenario, because people would just keep on asking. And worse still, to misjudge.

I told her, questions will never end.

And the flow would always be :

1. Bila nak kawin?

2. Bila nak ada anak?

3. Bila nak dapat adik pulak ni? (I’m at this phase now)

and on and on and on…

Once, in the ever-so-popular Facebook, an ex-colleague (same co., but diff. dept), whom I don’t quite remember actually, left a message which sounded something like this,

Hey, you kawen dulu, tapi anak I dah 3, you baru sorang!

To which I really wanted to reply,

Geez, I didn’t know we are in a race!

But I didn’t. Just because I felt it was no point making a point with people like that, you see. 🙂

To Ms S,
I wish you the very best of luck, and just ignore those unwanted questions or sly remarks! (I’m sure it doesn’t come from those close to you anyway! ;))

    Like I always tell my friends, “ignorance is a bliss”.

    Someone I know was asked the “kids” question by her ex-school mate when that person was aware all along that she is not even seeing anyone!! She even had the nerve to say “oh yes I know. (with a sarcastic smile)”. My goodness!!!

    Hey, even I couldnt escape from “when is no 2 coming?” question.

    ps: u didnt know that there is a race for kids?? 😛 My friend has 5 (or 6!) and she’s like 31!

    Ms B,
    I can’t believe even you can’t escape the question! 😀

    I didn’t participate in any ‘race’, which explains the ‘ignorance’ btw. hehehe. I guess it really depends on the person themselves, and it’s really up to them to plan their family. What annoys me most of the time is when they expect people to think & work things out exactly like them?!

    truthfully, I am quite ready for another now, after considering a lot of factors thoroughly, but I wouldn’t know how my rezeki this time would be of course! 😉

    Hey I got another one,

    “Eh I couple baru setahun dah nak kawin, u lagi lama bila lagi?”

    Which I am so tempted to reply : “Married already la after 1 mth couple. I just didn’t invite u je.” 😛

    But as always, ignorance is a bliss, especially to escape those kind of questions…hehe.. 😀
