Tagged llaaaggiiii!!

I didn't realize I was tagged by Make Traffic until I checked MyBlogLog.

Seems like this tagging season is going round furiously. But I don't mind doing this one. I specially dedicated a post to my mother on Mother's Day but I'll summarize it again here in this post on 10 random facts about her:

  1. She's fierce. Haha, that's the first thing that comes to my mind. Too bad I didn't inherit this great trade. You'd know I was in trouble when you could hear her voice down the street.
  2. She's generous. She never fails to help those who ask for favours, and sometimes I think she's being taken advantage of her generosity.
  3. She's an iron-woman. She took up the family's business single-handedly when my father fell sick.
  4. She's faithful. My dad's parents have passed on about 40 years now. She still visits their graves to pay respect, walking a long distance despite her bad back, although we (siblings) told her not to.
  5. She's old. 84 to be exact and
  6. She's stubborn. She would have still driven her old Volvo if we didn't take the car away from her. The last straw for us was when she lost her way.
  7. She's stubborn still. She thinks she's still 60 where she can cross the big drain, or do some stunts without hurting herself. She used to climb the rambutan tree at home to pluck those ripe ones at the top, until I told her I'll stop sending money back. No, haha, that was a joke :P
  8. She's vain. She's got a bad back, we got her a tongkat. She never uses it. She says it's ugly, strangers will stare at her.
  9. She's a good cook. I never inherit this trade either.
  10. She's can't read BM. When I was in primary school, I had to practice spelling tests with her, and I could NEVER understand a word she said!

Phew! I guess this is the last tag, for the week, at least, I hope!

I wanna tag:

Criz Lai
Baby Fiona
Kev's Walkabout

ha ha. my mom's the same. She cant speak BM to save her life. She still say "Lapan belat linggit" instead of "lapan belas ringgit" but strangely, she is pretty good at "Kimberly,naughty" and travelling alone at the Heathrow Airport"take bag,where?" and in the plane,"want chicken, no beep(beef)"
