No kids please

Now that I'm married, the question I'm most asked by well-intentioned folks is, "Bila nak beranak?"

Not that it's any of your business, makcik, but hubby and I are most contented with our lifestyles at the moment and we don't want some snot-nosed little terror ruling us from his or her crib. Of course, someday I do want kids but not right now.

Right now, we're still busy enjoying life, each other (and trust me, we've enjoyed each other in a LOT of places) and most importantly, freedom to do as we want.

You know the old joke where the man refers to his wife as the old ball and chain? Well I think that applies to kids instead.

I have a friend who has 3 young boys and she hasn't had a good night's sleep in 6 years. SIX years! Another friend just had a baby and he's gone goo goo ga ga quite literally over the excitement and tiredness.

And then there are those with teenagers and I don't need to tell you what a nightmare they are.

I love all these kids but from afar. I'm not quite ready yet to dive into motherhood, and hubby is fine with that, so back off, makciks.

Phew! It's been a long time but I'm finally back. Drama... forgot my password and then realised my email account had expired.

Befitting that my last post was about Merdeka ... I see things haven't really changed since then, in fact, it may even have deteriorated. Racism seems to be raising its ugly head more and more, and is much more vocal than before.

My fellow Malaysians, remember that we are all equal. None of this 'we are superior, you are pendatang' crap. I was born here, you were born here, that makes us Malaysian. There is nothing to prove that you are more Malaysian than I am, or vice versa. Leave history to the books and let's think about the future.

Do we really want a tense future for our descendants? Or worse, a civil war? I think not. Let's start with ourselves. The next time you start stereotyping or thinking racist thoughts, stop. Left unchecked, these thoughts will just fester and fester until hatred/intolerance develops and things boil over.

So make a conscious effort to change the way you think. Don't let the idiot politicians brainwash you - we're all equal. Remember that.
