Below conversation at our dinner table on Tuesday evening:
Me: Tomorrow mummy and daddy not coming back for dinner and ah mah got to fetch Michelle from school.
Ah mah(MIL): Oh
The girls: Why, where are both of you going?
Me: Mummy and daddy are planning to go for a movie, dating..
Michelle: (In her papaya face)… both of you not good one!
Emily: Bring us along..
Me: No we can’t, it’s a weekday and both of you got school the next day, besides the movie is in Cantonese, both of you won’t understand.
The girls: As usual showing their protesting face
Emily: Why both of you need to go dating leh?
Me: Because we love each other.. once a while need to go out dating, strengthen our relationship..
Michelle: Eeeya… geli lor
Emily: Date at home lar
Me: Dating means going out, just both of us..
Emily: Both of you hide in one place and date at home lar…
All of us: Laugh at her proposal….
Isn’t she cute? By the way, after much protesting and coaxing we finally could go out and enjoy our dinner, movie cum light shopping.
