Have you ever experienced a mixture of two contrasting feeling at the same time ? A fusion of it at one hand sending you sky high and on the other hand the other feeling giving you crash boom bang. I had, in fact just yesterday experienced both, so the story goes.......................
The happy side...... My lovely wife called me yesterday, sounded very happy over the phone, cheekily she told me that she had received an official letter of her salary increment, she asked me if i could guess how much the she got for the leap, my guesses all hit blank. Excitedly she told me, she got so much higher than she expected, and i was really happy for her and i really thank God for the blessing upon me and my family.And this morning she coaxed me into buying a new care and i said hold on hold on but tonight we will celebrate.
The sad side...........I had a row with my mother last night, you see my eldest sister is getting married next month again, albeit the second time, the matter of factly is my mother is not too fond of her husband to be, and my sister's heart desire is to see my mother being there on her wedding dinner in way signalling the blessing upon the marriage.
Being as obstinate as she can be, i was rather pissed off with her when i asked her if she would attend the wedding, and her reply was " see how lah, when times come i will let you all know"
Despite her non speaking term with my sister, my sister had indeed verbally in person invited her to the wedding, and the " see how lah" answer was the answer.
I told my mother off last night, i let her know how painful it could be for a daughter to have a wedding without the presence and the blessing from the parents, and as far as my mother is concerned, her only valid reason she not attending is simply she feels ashamed that her daughter is getting married the second time.
I got even angrier with her, if that was her sole reason, i told her as a matriach in the family she should not practise " Double standard" One child do this ok, another doing the same thing cannot, one grandson doing this ok, another child of her doing this cannot. What nonsense is she talking about and i hanged up on her. In the family i am labelled as kind of vigilante,(minus taking the laws into my own hands) but i just hate and loathe people practise "DOUBLE STANDARD"
Please fill in the blanks for me.......today i am a bit morbid despite my favourite day Friday.
