What is your ambition?

I’m sure you have asked your child before what they want to become when they grew up? Michelle wanted to become a teacher and Emily wanted to become a nurse, over time Emily changed her mind and her latest ambition is to become an art teacher.

I recollected one of my conversations with Michelle concerning the above matter:

Michelle: Mummy, is it good to become a chef?
Me: Well, if you love to cook for people, why not?
Michelle: Mummy, is it good to work as a sales girl? (I guess she's exploring her career options...)
Me: Sales girl ar… depends but it’s quite boring wor..
Michelle: Guess what Jordon (her classmate) like to become?
Me: Hmm… doctor?
Michelle: No
Me: Teacher?
Michelle: No
Me: Pilot?
Michelle: Yes!.. teacher says pilot must not wear spectacles one wor… daddy cannot become a pilot lor…
Me: Yeah…
Michelle: Mummy, I want you to become a teacher…
Me: Later… mummy would like to become one also.
Michelle: Who will you be teaching?
Me: Big koko and jeh jeh in the university like USM…
Michelle: Yeah, you become teacher now lar
Me: Now? Nobody wants to employ mummy as a teacher yet
Michelle: Why? I want you to become teacher now (keep on nagging….)
Me: (sign…. Roll my eyes)

I wonder how many of you out there sticking to your original ambition?

Dorene, you are sure one undecisive girl....

Christy, as long you are happy and contended with what you are doing, then should be okay already..

Little inbox, ha ha..ei, who knows? If his ambition materialized, maybe you are already a "siew nai nai" now.
