Would you believe it’s RM900 bucks? But it is no doubt a very beautiful piece of art.
It is apparently a health related something something enhancer amethyst.
As usual company dinner was just another occasion to dress up and eat nice food. It was held at the same hotel like last year’s. My cousin, Jacqueline who hasn’t seen me in a year plus (because she’s studying in New Zealand) was like, “ei, you put on weight ke?” I contemplated many possible answers, and settled for, “Yalor. But before SPM I was bigger,”.. She looked at me doubtfully. 🙂 “Er, maybe same size kua.”
But lucky her she’s gone from the bigger cousins to the smaller cousins. Two years ago she, this other cousin guy who came back from aussie and two other cousins who arae currently in US were the ones who put on weight due to the cold weather over there. Now I’ve taken on the fat reigns as Jacq and Hong Fei(back from Aussie Couz) has gone so much slimmer. Not too sure about the US ones though, but will see Yong Yong(One of the US Couz) later this year. Even my brother who was Fat Cousin Extreme has gone average since he started secondary school.
Then last night when I was taking some cucumbers from the buffet table..I heard my dad moving in to our table and then asked where was I.. to which Jacq replied, at the buffet table ..and then he exclaimed, “Gom fei jor yau sek?!(So fat already still eat!?)” .. Cham lor….
Sunday started on bright and shiny and insanely for me as I was kicked and seduced by my father with a mandarin orange on my lips. (Big time sucker for Mandarin oranges) (Chinese New Year Memory 2003: Jolene peeled a bowl of mandarin oranges for guests but guests left too soon and jolene sapu all until she could not stop farting the entire day…) Went to Aunty’s Occasional Bf/Friend’s wantanmee place for lunch and then when he saw me he was like, “Ei Jolene!! Fei jor wor!!(Fat already eh!)!”..”Eh-heh, hailor..(yalor)” said I with a tinge of depression.
I thought that coming to Malacca for two nights meant that I packed very little clothes only. But then I ran out of homewear and wore this button up top that was meant to be mended by my aunty because there weren’t enough buttons to cover my boobs that my Aunty said in her own words were “screaming to come out”. Thanks Yee Ma! Then she was like, “Haiyah!! Cannot fit u already lar!!”.. then she made me take off my shirt and there I was in my bra uploading pics (NOT OF ME IN MY BRA) onto my laptop as she tried on my top. “ei so nice! give me ya!..since u too big for it already…” so poor jolene clad in her bra and a pair of shorts was left to upload more pictures on to the computer while mum runs up stairs to look for something big enough for the fat Jolene to wear whilst laughing hysterically.
I have come to accept the role of the fat jolly character in any situations. I will succumb and submit to all fat jokes for the joy and goodwill of others.
Here are some pics from the night!
