Long lost contact: Hey, what exactly are you?
Me: Erm… a human being? Heh.
Long lost contact: You have strange stuff on your FB wall. What do you do exactly?
Me: Officially, I am an early childhood teacher. Many exciting things have happened since we last kept in touch. Anyway, how are you?
Long lost contact: Oh. Well I am doing great, married now and a housewife la. Kinda like a tai tai hehe hubby don’t feel comfy with me modelling. But then, your FB wall does not tell me you are a teacher hahaha… teacher can be so political one meh? Also did not know that babysitting children needs degree leh.
Me: Well I don’t blame you. Many people do not realise that. Early childhood education is not just about babysitting. 🙂
Long lost contact: Well ok, children are not easy to handle I agree. I should maybe find out more about early childhood before I comment right hehe. But why the politics?
Me: Well I am not a politician. Just happen to want to do something about human rights.
Long lost contact: Why care about other people so much? Like they care about themselves like that. Or as if they will be grateful for what you do.
Me: You know, when one has an opinion or cannot stand by watching certain things happening, one has the choice to go away forever, be frustrated and silent or speak out and do something to improve things. Don’t know about you but this is what I think.
Long lost contact: You are always so determined and opinionated. Then your husband let you do this ah?
Me: Don’t believe in marriage 🙂 am not married, and do not intend to be.
Long lost contact: You have not changed!!! But you are woman leh, I mean, we all need someone to take care of us right?
Me: Is that why you got married in the first place? :s
Long lost contact: aiyah. Women are the weaker sex, we need to balance it with the stronger sex what.
Me: Rubbish. I don’t fall for that stereotype. Please do not buy the believe that you are weaker just because you are female. Regarding marriage, good for you, at least you seem happy. To each his/ her own but for me, love is about two person existing as individuals on an equal platform, none is a property of the other. I am happy for people who believe in the concept of marriage, and are happy in their marriages.
Long lost contact: You very feminist, salute you! Wish he is less of a control freak lor. We are living with his monster parents, I feel freer with my mum and step dad really. This place is like jail. His mummy wants me to have children quick and I just want to enjoy my married life for awhile leh. So irritating! Then everytime I go out with my galfriends to drink, she complains to hubby and ask him to take me in hand. Like as if he does not go. She thinks that her daughter-in-law should stay home and play mahjong with her. This is so HKTV lor.
Me: Sigh… well, try to improve the situation I guess. That sort of life is not for me.
Long lost contact: Anyway, you get money for doing the human rights stuff?
Me: Nope.I gain more knowledge out of it though and met many inspiring people at the same time.
Long lost contact: THEN WHY YOU DO? aiyoh. How can anyone do things for free like that?
Me: 🙂 We do lead very different lives.
Long lost contact: Hehe just remember me when you get appointed as minister or something lah.
Me: That’s definitely not my path hahahaa but yes, rest assured that you will never be forgotten.
Long lost contact: aiyoh, mother in law asking why I am not asleep yet. Better go, I feel like a kid here. Wish I can suka suka go back to my mum’s place. Anyway, stop doing things for free ok, it is not worth it lah.
Me: Goodnight my friend. 🙂
