Parental Abuse

A busted lower lip, courtesy of my son.


I really don't understand la. How is it possible that a 9-month-old's head is this hard?? And why can't he sleep like a log (literally, please!) instead of helicopter-ing all over the bed at night, all through the night?? Turn here, turn there looking for his sweet spot on the bed... like a worm! He gave me that busted lip in the middle of the night last night. (I took that picture this morning.) And during his afternoon nap today, he gave me another bruise under my chin. I'm a real pretty sight to behold now, I can tell ya that! -_-'''

Listerine ZERO

Does anybody know where I can buy this particular "flavour" of Listerine in Penang? So far I've only ever seen and been able to buy it at Cold Storage, Sunway Pyramid. Nowhere else in KL/Selangor, much less in li'l ol' Penang. The usual "flavours" we find everywhere else are just too pedas for me la. I cannot tahan. Help!

"To Phak Or Not To Phak" – That Is The Question

Little JZ has been a well-behaved boy all along. In the past two weeks, however, he has slowly become more demanding than usual. You see, he is finally at an age where he knows exactly what he wants... but is still unable to get what he wants without our help or permission. Unfortunately for him, most of the time, what he wants isn't what we want him to want. Thus, that help, he doesn't get. HAHA. And that is when we, as parents, have the supreme honour of witnessing the occasional mini tantrum that consists of whining and some thrashing – all in his effort to push the boundaries and hopefully get his way.

One night, after a 30-second tantrum before bedtime:

The Husband: Kiam phak liao la ee!! (Manglish Translation: Kurang ajar already la he!!) *turns to me* Eh sai phak liao boay??? (Manglish Translation: Can whack already or not???)

Pam Song: Phak la! (Manglish Translation: Whack la!)

The Husband: @_@ Lu oo phak meh? (Manglish Translation: You got whack meh?)

Pam Song: Phak! (Manglish Translation: Got whack!)

The Husband: Oh.


The Husband: Wa mai phak la... (Manglish Translation: I don't want to whack la...)

Pam Song: -_-

NATO kau kau man.

Ini Mia Bapak

While taking an evening walk
with our son in the stroller...

Pam Song: Dog coming. 

The Husband: Ok.

Pam Song: *turns to The Husband and asks* Will you protect him ah if the dog attack him?

The Husband: *super defensively* What kind of stupid question is that??

Pam Song: Just answer the question! Will you protect him?? Or will you run?

The Husband: I run la! 

Pam Song: HAHAHAHAHA. I knew it! Idiot. 

The Husband: *2 seconds too late* Fine. I take him and run. Ok??
