    • Sweet Call

      Travelling for me can be fun but tiring. Imagine, I have to work on 2 time zones before emails get piling up. Anyway, the only thing that I most look forward to (besides shopping) is calling my children. I love hearing their sweet voices.

      I can either call them at 4pm (Penang 8am) or 3am (Penang 7pm). However I don’t like talking to them in the office because I cannot make funny sound in the office. It was fun talking to them. I did call them just now at 3pm in the office. It just makes my day.

      Mummy: Did you miss mummy?
      Tim: Yes. I want 2 transformers, the blue and the red one.
      Mummy: Did you talk to your teacher.
      Tim: Yes, softly. You got buy the transformers or not?
      Mummy: I will. Have you been a good boy?
      Tim: Yes.
      Mummy: Did you fight with Emily?
      Tim: No.
      Mummy: You want jelly beans?
      Tim: Yes.
      Mummy: How many?
      Tim: 10. *that’s easy*
      Mummy: Ask Emily whether she wants any? *Emily just woken and doesn’t want to talk on the phone*
      Tim: Emily, mummy asked you, you want jelly bean.
      Emily: Yes.
      Tim: How many?
      Emily: One.
      Tim: One only.
      Mummy: Ask Emily to talk to mummy.
      Emily: Mummy I want 1 jelly bean. *mood changes when it comes to sweets*
      Mummy: I buy you 10.
      Emily: I want Doremon and …and…and…
      Mummy: I saw Cinderella, Snow White, Jasmine…
      Emily: I want Cinderella. *change mind*
      Emily: No no no…I want Snow White. *change mind again*
      Mummy: Did you miss mummy?
      Emily: Yes.
      Mummy: Have you been a good girl?
      Emily: Yes.

      A lengthy conversation, coming from 2 children who seldom talk on the phone. I sure miss them very much. I cannot wait to go back and see them.
