Something very Unusually me!
To my old ‘sei-tong’ buddies, Cwan and Tequila (that ‘Oink’cology surgeon friend in US)~I don’t know whether to ‘khay’ you people kau-kau or.... to apologize and thank you for reminding me to update here. Limpek was ‘song-song’ enjoying doing something very unusually me here and you have to come and f@rk my guilt for not updating! (For others, like Cornelius my new blogging friend, second option applies-sollee-ha, Paiseh, paiseh... for your disappointed visits here earlier.)
By the way, that ‘something very unusually me’ has nothing to do with, or sequent to my previous post. (Please don’t go overboard in thoughts.. okay?) What I am crapping here is about watching Chinese family-drama series that has never been my cup of tea all along. (As if limpek don't have enough of real-life dramas of my own to count on if I ever need to exercise my emotion faculty..huh?)
In fact, I used to tell Charlie and Jboy that if they ever catch dad sitting silently in front of a TV with a Chinese drama on, they should call the ambulance immediately or check my pulse! “It‘s definitely a bad sign, probably a stroke or…. I must be dead!” I would tell them.
Although I do sometimes watch costumed kungfu or comedy series, but family dramas? Nay! Never! ...... I mean ‘never’….errr.. at least not until I came across this Singapore TV series called ‘The Little Nyonya’, with a storyline weaving around three Baba-Nyonya familes in Malacca and Singapore, from pre-war era to the present.
-The Oois (Huangs) - the sipek f@rked-up rich family in Melaka where our 'Cinderella-Nyonya' unfortunately came from and suffered miserably.
-The Tans (Chens)-the better, not-so f@rked-up and very rich family in Singapore. The supplier of Prince Charmings one generation after another.
-The Teohs (Zhangs)- the very sipek jialat f@rked-up super rich family in Singapore you 'll toolan from the beginning to the end!
That’s how I started doing something very unusually me… watching Chinese family drama series! Got hooked right from the start because of its’ rich Malaysian Ching-chong customs and culture that many of us can either relate to or find it shocking.... especially the strict and rigid way of life of the olden days Chinese where a meaningless phrase which sounded something like ‘Tong Tong dunno what…bali-tong!’ was considered vulgar and coarse! (If only those ancestors could sample the varieties of ‘good’ phrases we have these days…I bet their tablets will surely rock & roll off the altars! kekeke!)
I’m sure guys today would rather cut their dicks off than to leave the choice of their lifetime partner in the hands of those old blur-sotong great grannies called ‘Chor-chors like they do in those days! (ishh!!-Those so blardy free and nothing to-do, whole day betel-nut leaves munching or Ceki-cards playing great grannies! )
…and for the 21st century girls today, I’m sure they would rather go for an air-stewardess job interview than be interviewed and tested for skills in cooking, embroidery and beading by those ‘lansi-lanyong’ rich matriarchs looking for a great-granddaughter in-law in those old days! (Niamah! Dunno whether they are looking for a bride or a factory worker cum servant hor?)
So guys, if you haven’t watch it yet and the Perak's 'Under a Raintree politics' are not entertaining enough for you, go watch this series – ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GErrCpysark ) or buy the DVDs from…you know where laaa hor?
YueNiang: Who says must do florals embroidery?.. I send a message to bodek Chor-Chor... cannot meh?
What Chor-Chor did'nt know, I know leh....
After all, YuehNiang is half Japanese ..right? So, it was AJI-NO-MOTO ichi-ban kaneh all the way la!!! Abo-den, why do you think her cooking tasted so differently well?
Like it or not, Chor-Chor's word 's always final! Your 'nya-nya'(mom) & 'Ma-mah'(grandma) orso have to kwai kwai obey la.
Weiiii! Chor-chor's waiting to spit out those chewed Betel-nut leaves liao..Don't 'meh-meh' get her the spitum-pot in time, she's gonna chew you instead!!
