So, one hot CNY afternoon in Muar, estherlauderlyn and I decided to share a can of Anglia Shandy – that effectively means that we each only get half the dose of the 1% of alcohol in the can, HAHA – on the rocks. (Chewah, macam pro! =p)
At this point, The Husband's maternal grandma walks past,
takes a disapproving look at our icy cold Shandy and says:
Por Por: Ah Peng ah! (That's what she's always called me. A decade along and still no change. I give up.) Mai ciak peng peng. Bo ho. (English Translation: Pam ah! Don't take ice. Not good.)
Pam Song: Oh... Ho... (English Translation: Oh... Ok...)
Por Por: *proceeds to rub my belly* Ciak leng, ai tua potoh bo ho hor. (English Translation: Take cold stuff, not good when wanna get pregnant ya.)
Pam Song: @_@ Oh... *gulp* Ho... (English Translation: Oh... Ok...)
It makes me laugh when I think about how she was more worried over the ice than the alcohol. Haha. Memang traditional tu. But... pregnant? Where got pregnant? No laaa... I GOTS ICY SHANDY!!! =D
Perfectly bubbled, deliciously iced.
estherlauderlyn and I.
If this is what life is like in Muar,
Imma head there all the time now! =p
