Both my lovely wife and i have known this couple with two children about 5 to 6 years ago through business contact and we had since become sort of like family friends.
During the early stage of our friendship, i remember the wife was telling us this during a casual chat without the presence of the husband," Looks Eugene and Phobee, when my children are grown up, i will sure divorce this monster"referring to her husband" at that point i was thinking probably she was only shooting out friendly banter toward her husband,just doing in jest nothing serious.
Just last two weekends ago, she called us to see if she and her children could put up a night in our place and we asked her why she needed to do that, she was filled with emotion telling us that the husband just walked off in the middle of buffet dinner, leaving them at the restaurant and they had to take a cab back to their Batu Ferringhi apartment only to find out that the husband refused to let them in.
This is not the first time he did this to his family, i was told the worst case scenario happened to the wife when she was left stranded in the airport with him flying off the earlier flight without even telling his wife.
I know the husband well and i am sure and convinced that he is one blardy selfish person, he only thinks for himself and he is a health freak, he will spend his time in the gym after work and he could not careless if the children have food on table or not.
I am also convinced that the husband needs medical attention in the area of "mental illness" but i was cautioned by the wife not to even suggest that to him,otherwise probably he would bash me up.
It was scary i remember when i talked to the son once when he was like 11 years old, when i asked him about his father, he simply said he wish he was dead.
From the outside, no one could tell this blardy friend of mine is this rotten,he seems affable, friendly and ever willing to helping friends, appearance can really be deceiving.
Now i can only hope that the wife will divorce this monster "when the children are all grown up" and i am sure it will be soon.........
Don't worry guys, this bastard will never read my blog for he has no time for this nonsense as according to him, his time is spent in the gym, golf turfs and sleeping.
P/S : Sometimes it is better off without men, i mean bad men
