Pt 2 - Before and after kids

Went to a wedding dinner at Northam last Saturday with toddler tagging along.

Observed this:
Before toddler : wear slinky dress (over-dressed guests give me this idea, definitely wasn't my style hor?) with spaghetti strap and sequins. Killer high heels and carry those icky, girlish handbag that makes one look like some mamasan's 'worker'. Sit at the table and make idiotic grins and tilt head and 'fly' hairs (whatcha call that pantene girl style ha?).

After toddler : wear clothes that doesn't have dangerous buttons/straps that toddler can unbutton/undress in a moment of tantrums. Definitely have to be full cotton with no sharp buttons or sequins or else may scratch toddler. Flat heels so that you can sprint and save toddler from pulling down the mega-speakers or trip waiters balancing sharks-fin soup. Bag? Backpack that has contents like wet wipes for poo, towels to catch any vomit, spare clothings and food to amuse toddler. Table manner? Where got time for manners? Did not even have chance to sit. In between keeping an eye on toddler, stuff food down throat while standing around the table. Damn hungry mah.

Outside the dinner hall, got one Indon maid carrying a screaming 2-3 years old (daddy, daddy, daddy....struggling to go in the direction of the dinner hall, kid's face red and got big tears). Apparently, the parents brought the maid and kid along, left poor them outside the hall while they did what Group 1 (before toddler) do. Sit and act sociable and civilised. Appear cultured.

I ventured a pair of crystal high heel to a wedding dinner when the girls turns 20 months, few of the crystal came off from the high heel, they step on me boohoo...

If that pair want to appear cultured, ask them to go live in a petri dish (those dish where we culture bacteria in science experiment wan) lar. So bo-a-akai (no brain) to leave the poor kid with maid outside the hall.

Yalor, poor maid must be drooling looking at all the dishes and I bet the couple only pay angpow just enough to cover the per head charge for two person. Talk about that, last night, got one family eating at Fish & Co, those big, big kuali filled with seafood? and left the poor maid standing and taking care of the kids. People like that must go to hell and stand by the side at banquets and salivating for the rest of eternity.

Aiyoh, this kind of parents..... sigh.... the father also bodoh-one--the kid wants to be with him and he can just ignore it. If the boy run away because of parental neglect, the parents deserve it.
