I was in the company of professional women one day, dressed in my best. Definition of "best" would perhaps be understood as ordinary plain Jane to many others but to me, best is more of an internal thing, as to how I am feeling. Whilst exchanging our life's adventures, I saw one of them peering to look at the brand of my handbag. They didn't look at my shoes though, as it was clearly seen from afar, the croc like version of comfort. I didn't try to hide the brand less wares I had on me, in fact I took time to tell them I got the handbag from my mum's closet. When my phone beeped a sound, I saw them checking it out. No, it wasn't the Blackberry, neither was it the iphone or some gadget filled application handphone. It's just the basic Nokia with the black and white wall. The one I can't take pictures with, send or receive mms. Itu pun, the kids could still pick a fight on who gets to play snake on my handphone!
I live within my means, amongst simple things which have probably gone obsolete to some people. My kids too are made to live the same way, sans PlayStation, electronic games and astro. I want them to engage more on games that we used to play when we were kids, games that made us run, jump, sweat and laugh at each other's silliness. Games that did not cost so much. They know I don't have much to spend and I am thankful that they never asked for things their friends have.
We don't have much, but we do have these though...
The Dart. The place where we hope and try to aim for better things on daily basis.
The old fashioned game of Carom. The room would turn wangi as many splashes of bedak would be used to ensure smoothness of the game. It's the same place where we play board games and cards.
My handphone cum favourite snake game yang menjadi rebutan, haih.
The fav place in the kitchen, where the kids and I swing our woes away.
Happy Friday folks and enjoy your weekend!
