Few days ago my mum made one remark:
"Mak rasa Tiah tak boleh kahwin lagi lah, sebab macam budak-budak lagi."
(I don't think you're ready for marriage because you're still childish.)
And the childishness is because I love eating junk food; Super Ring, Twisties, MiMi... Tak boleh kahwin sebab suka makan jajan. Ceh. -.-"
I thought for a while then agreed with her. So I said:
"Ha'ah. Kahwin tak lah, tapi bertunang oke kut" :P
(Oh yes. But getting engaged would be okay.)
My mum went speechless for a few second, then said, "GATAL sungguh..!" She said I was being too honest and too direct. HA-HA...
If, I ever wanted to be in a relationship, I wanted it to be official. But the thought of someone else's mother slipping a ring on my finger seemed scary, though. Imagine a stranger, slipping a ring on your finger... Can you imagine? She'll be holding your hand, and then you have to hug her... (What's scary about being hugged anyway?)
I think I'm just plain paranoid.
But an engagement is okay lah don't you think? Macam couple-couple, cuma ianya lebih rasmi...And besides, the good thing is if you broke off the engagement, you have to pay. Heh. (betul kan kalau ikut adat Melayu?)
