Gothic Lolita

That's what they called it.
That's what they called this type of clothings.
Well, whatever its name is, I have it.
Let me re-phrase that.
I have bought it.
Now Adek have it.

When we first found the Street at 1Borneo, the girls went bonkers. When we browsed in the shop, they became hysterical with excitement. Hilang ingatan terus!

Adek : Mummy, mummy....
Self : (silently checking the price tags)
Kakak : Mummy, mummy...
Self : (silently urut2 dada)
Alli : Mummyyyyyy, my feet hurts...
Self : Ok, lets go girls (joy killer)...
Adek & Kakak : Ehhhhhhh...(totally disappointed yet still excited)
Self : Mau buat apa juga tu...kamu mau pakai pigi mana...
Adek & Kakak : Make believe saja ba mum...main2 di rumah...


After a while...



Self : Adek, mummy suda kasi you hadiahfor your 5A?
Adek : (grinning ear to ear)...not yet, not yet...
Self : Ok, let me think about it...

Kakak : Mum, kalo my PMR good, can I have one juga ka?
Self : Ok, let me think about it (standard and safe respond)...


The 2nd time we went to the Street was when hubby came down for Kakak's birthday. He was busy escorting Alli to the Toy City shop next door. I was busy with the girls.

I got this respond from hubby...

Self : Whei...kopak oh...
Hubby : Kenapa mau beli gitu mahal...(when I told him the price)...
Self : Ndak apa la, we belum lagi kasi hadiah 5A dia...(I got a nod of agreement)...


I got this respond from the ladies at the office...



Self : I beli suda baju tu...
Ladies : Hah! Mahal tu Tun...
Self : Ndak apa la...hadiah UPSR dia...


The costume costs me RM399.90. A whooping RM399.90 excluding the stockings. That stripy stockings alone is RM25.90. Kemahalan yang terlampau to say the least.


But still I bought it for Adek.
Why? One might asked.


I remembered one incident soon after we got her UPSR's result.
They were busy on the computers while myself and Alli watched TV.
Hubby came in with the phone bill. A RM300++ phone bill. I was speechless.
When Adek admitted to me that might be her calls, I was not even surprised. I always received calls for her. She quickly followed hubby to the other room.


When she came back, she continued playing with the computers, like nothing happen. Heran.
When I asked hubby about it, he asked me to just let it go. Not to pursue the matter anymore.
How can I argue with his justification...
Except for the extra classes at school, we have NEVER sent Adek for any tuition for hubby does not allow it.
Focus in class and do your revision, that's what hubby always told the kids.
And the calls she made for that one-time-high-phone-bill were cross-referencing with friends.


So here they are ladies...









By the way...
Did I mention this to you...
That I will bring the real thing tomorrow...
Just to show...
How super crazy this mother is...


So, please...
after this...
pester me no more...
harrass me no more...
let me be in peace...
