Last few weeks, several friends of mine posted the above photo in FB and I could quickly associated with it. Ok if you can't read Chinese, let me translate for you:
" In the coming month(during CNY) you'll probably be annoyed by these few questions:
- When will you graduate?
- Going to college/Uni?
- Have you got a job?
- Are you seeing someone at the moment?
- When are you going to get married?
- When are you going to get pregnant?
- How much is your salary?
Bla bla bla bla..............."
The 2 questions highlighted in bold are the most common question those aunties uncles would ask. I've been through it and seriously it's damn annoying. While CNY is a great time for everyone to get together, this is the part I hate the most. Elderly would never get bored by asking those questions again and again.
提心吊胆很烦。这些问题肯定‘入围’滴 （尤其是那个‘你们几时要小孩啊？’）, 跑不掉。加上老公那边亲戚特别多，所以当时的压力特别大。当然我是不必给他们交待啦，不过想象一下如果每个人都酱问你，难道你的头不大吗？>.<
更烦的是，不管你怎样回答，他们都会继续帮你洗脑，‘早生好啊，快快生2-3个，过后你就sinang鸟。。’ 喂你说要生就生 meh？
很开心的跟他们分享 ok, 就说‘看看怎样先啦，等Aden大一些再打算’。不过接下来我就开始很不耐烦了，就很简单的说‘不一定’。我咧是属于比较文静的人（吐），我不像有些人很坦白，terang terang讲话，所以我没办法直接摆臭脸。。（所以说有时我满羡慕那些勇于表达自我的人，至少可以逃过很多烦人的问题）.
This year, I have Aden with me, but the elderly would sure have something else to ask, can you guess?
Yep, they would ask 'When you wanna get number 2?' and so on. It's a never ending cycles. (Well, may be I'd become like this too when I grow old, haha!)
And besides this, I knew many will also ask me 'so are you planning to become a SAHM forever?'. I just answered 'may be', perhaps some of them are concern about me but sorry, it's really annoying. Some of them would think that it's a waste for me to stay home looking after baby because I have a degree. But to me, sometimes things cannot be judged this way.
But apart from all this dramas, I am thankful that my own family, hubby and in laws never bother me with these questions. (Erm except that my father did asked me when I wanna get a brother/sister for Aden =_=)
Anyway, are you ready for those questions this CNY?
