Ah Mai's visit


I’ve been hearing for weeks now that Ah Mai (Papa’s sister) is coming to visit from LA. And so will Ah Por (Papa’s Mummy), Ah Kong (Papa’s papa) and Peh Deh (Papa’s brother) too. It seems that Ah Mai comes back to Malaysia now and then. The last time was when I was still in Mummy’s tummy, I think when I was 5 months plus growing. So this visit is mainly to see me and also to do her passport.

Weeks before Ah Mai came back, I’ve been told that she got me a lot of clothes and when she arrived here, oh boy, were there heaps of stuff! The clothes she got me are really cool and I got some dresses too. I was laughed at when I wore the dresses type. Mummy kept saying that I look like a boy in a dress – how rude! Papa said he’s not used to seeing me with a skirt. I had enough of hearing how botak (bald) I am now….I cannot help it if my hair keeps dropping off.

Ah Mai, Peh Deh, Ah Por and Ah Kong all went back to Penang after spending several days at our place. After that, Ah Mai came back again to spend the remaining days with us before she leaves for LA again. One of the nights, she had to take care of me by herself as Mummy and Papa got a wedding dinner to attend. Mummy kept reminding me to be good to Ah Mai before she left the house…wonder what she means by that coz as far as I’m concerned, I’m always good.

Later, Ah Mai reported that I was ok overall except towards the end where she thinks I was irate from the stuffiness outside the hall so she brought me in to the room with the air-cond switched on. But I wanted to be held so when Mummy and Papa came back home that night, they found us in the room with me in Ah Mai’s arm sleeping. She said that when she puts me down in the cot, I will wake up demanding to be carried. So it seems that I bullied Ah Mai.

I was taken up to Fraser’s Hill with both Mummy and Papa and Ah Mai for a day trip. I didn’t get to go to Aunty Ng’s that day. But too bad that I was sleeping all the way there; much to Mummy’s delight. I slept for quite a long time that by the time I woke up, I was demanding for my milk, very loudly too at Smokehouse. I disturbed their fun of having tea and scones there. It was a good thing that it was only us then… my screams seem to be extra loud in the serene ambience.

After that, I was brought to the waterfalls by foot, well, in this case, in Papa’s foot. He was carrying me in the carrier. Not even halfway of the journey to the waterfalls, I fell asleep positioned standing up, inside the carrier of course. So I didn’t get to see much but I heard the water stream, waterfalls and the sounds of the jungle. And not forgetting the laughs and voices of Mummy, Papa and Ah Mai. I believed I was being laughed at again.

The journey back home was kinda opposite from the journey there. Going down from Fraser’s, I became restless and demanded to be carried. Mummy eventually gave in and took me out from my car seat and she nursed me to keep me quiet. It worked coz I was very contented after that and was left to sleep again in the car seat.

Ah Mai was always there to pick me up with Papa from Aunty Ng’s for the remaining days she’s around and what fun that was coz I got to be entertained in the car ride home. Usually, it’s just me alone facing a beige ‘wall’ and I get to see some colourful animals being hung above me. Now and then papa talks to me but it gets boring so I fall asleep. But when Ah Mai was around, she talks to me and I talk back. I’m trying to tell her how happy I am that I get to see her instead of the ‘wall’.

Ah Mai has left already…how fast she came and went. I hear that I may go and visit her at her home over there one day and that I will get to see Uncle Jason too. He’s the one that bought me my music-gym toy way before I came out. I hear that not only is he very big, he’s also white! Hmmm, how white can one be?!
