Blogging about my conversation with Mummy 15 minutes ago.
Tonight we had "popiah" for dinner! But before setting up the plates & stuff, I took out my visual diary and began flipping through pages showing mummy the pieces I've been working on.
Mummy & I
Mummy: Shiek Er, I shouldn't have tell you off for sleeping late that night.
Me: Mummy you see, you see first.
Mummy: They're "hou leng" (very pretty), all very nice. (:
Me: Did I tell you, I got 29 outta 30 for one of my designs? And noone got 30 in class!
Mummy: Very good! (The Mummy Smile (: )
Me: oh... I cried in school the other day too...
Mummy: How come?
Me: (looked down on my thighs, & immediately had my chin up)
Well, He was asking what were my plans for the future. & you know, how I've always wanted to be an artist, well recently because of how we've been talking alot. You (mummy) want to be more independant and Shiek Ling wants to be the richest person in the world. I don't know, I've been thinking.. how to make money off my designs, and it really took away the whole meaning of me desiging in the first place. We're very different, mummy.
Mummy: Well, all the stuff that I said, wasn't meant for you.. but for myself, I want to be independant, and having no money is very "san fu" (suffering) I can't go out and not have money to spend.
Me: I know, but whenever the topic on money is brought up, I don't know.. I'd rather not talk about it...
Mummy: Well you know, Shiek Er... Me ShiekLing and you are very different. We want to earn money, money is very important. But you on the other hand, do what you want to do.. I bet "Papa" (daddy) will be very proud to see you happy. Whatever happens in the future, I will support you ok? even if you have no money, I still will support you.
Me: okay.. (: thankyou mummy. ;)
