We went out for dinner with the whole clan (mum, sisters and brother, sis’s family) one evening. While waiting for our food, mum said she was buying dinner.
Me: Huh? You again? (coz mum always compete with us to pay for dinner).
Mum (in Cantonese): Yeah, never mind la. I finally received the money for the CNY ad.
Younger sister: You don't know meh? Mummy has a lot of money one ma!
Yiu Yiu: 婆婆有很多钱 because 她那我 mummy的钱 (Popo has a lot of money because she takes my mummy’s money*)
And we all couldn't help but burst out laughing.
*I give mum pocket money every month and she witnessed me giving mum money just the day before the dinner. Sure hope she’ll learn by example and take care of us when we get old, just like how we take care of mum now.
