Sitting alone in the office on Chinese New Year eve, (its my day to do some stupid LTA duty) is so damn bloody unbearable..! I should be at home, playing with my cousins, chatting with my uncle, auntie and granny, not alone in the stupid office, listening to the radio alone, pathetically and dozing off.. Sigh..
Tomorrow is going to be more unbearable.. Any single, unattached young adult who tell me that he or she is not tired of visting relatives during any festive seasons is either:
- Lying through their big fat soggy asses
- Loves their relatives so much that they really do not mind their nosy interrogation
I am very sure its the former.
Come on, CNY is like a form of interrogation season for me. Every year nosy aunties and uncles (yes, I realized that as males get older, they tend to get nosier too) would just probe me for any news on my marital status.
"Aiyoh, why still single and not attached? You are not young anymore liao leh, don want to get left on the shelf leh. See, your younger sister already happily attached. You want to remain a spinster ah?"
In case, you are wondering, I have like 4 aunties, 2 uncles on my mum's side and 3 aunties and 1 uncle on my dad's side. Together with their spouses, that would make 10 pairs of nosy old couples interrogating me on why I am still single. Take my word for it when I say its seriously really very stressful.
Especially when they all swarm towards you as you just step into the house and just start shooting off their questions. Just imagine a poor defenseless lass getting surprised by vultures and lions.
Ok that was a rather lame analogy and I am getting a little carried away, but you get my point.
And its fucking bored and stuffy in the office here! Dammit..
On a sidenote, Happy Lunar New Year to all my fans here..! Enjoy your holidays!
