I was sitting at the mamak stall one night for my usual supper outing with my friends. Along came a family of 5: the father, the mother and their 3 little kids. All dressed like they were heading for a picnic at the beach. Daddy wore a tee with a pair of ugly shorts (lime green with yellow stripes on the sides), Mommy was on a loose tee with a much better looking shorts while the 3 kids were dressed in singlets and short pants. (Thank goodness there wasn’t any vacuum cleaners on sight) hahaha!
The time was 2:20 AM.
Now, I’m not a mother yet (but I do own a dog that I treat like my daughter. I scold her, smack her.. eh.. that’s another different story) but back in the 80s, my mother made sure that we (the kids) ALWAYS had our sweaters on whenever we step outside the house, especially at night. This, I was told, was to prevent us from masuk angin (catching a cold). Probably to avoid the mists too..
So, either you or your kids wear sweaters at night?
Because I don’t.. (only because I thought my immune systems are much stronger now) But my future kids WILL! And I’m gonna make sure they have something prettier than this:
LOL! LOL! LOL!
