My dad has become grumpier as he aged. He’s becoming like Ah Soh Po pek! po pek! po pek! Can be worst than mom yo! Sometimes I can feel negative energy surrounding me after his outburst. Some people will call it bad chi. Are everyone’s dad like that one ar?
Che-Cheh: Dad, don’t eat too many fei chu yok (fatty pork). You’ll get high cholesterol and heart attack after that and then your hands and legs cannot move… then you will be on the wheelchair. (I’m saying like this to scare him)
AIYAH everyone will get sick when they’re old. *grumpy grumpy grumpy* Those that live & eat healthy also get sick. *more grumpy* So how?
What I’m trying to say here is no matter what we tell or advise him, he will find a reason to fight back. Hmm fight back is a strong word. Retaliate like a kiddo is more suitable. He wants to have the last word. Unfortunately I’m like him. So we have wars of words. Po pek! Po Pek! Pi Pok! Pi Pok! Most of the time I let him win because he’s just too stubborn! (like me la but I’m old enough to understand what it means to give way)
No harm is done to our father-daughter relationship. It’s just perang saudara that will be forgotten in few hours. Kinda fun actually!
