Suzanne, the Romeo magnet

Time: Last night
Place: At our favourite 24 hour clinic located somewhere in Andreas' home turf...

All the ladies in the Belacan family are down with something. Suzanne is recovering from measles, baby SueAnne is irritated with phlegm and Mrs B has a recurrent sinus attack due to sleepless nights. Me? I will take a rain cheque because there's no one around to manja me, hehehe!

Anyway, today's post is about Suzanne, my 5 year old girl. At the clinic, there was another family with a 4-5 year old boy who is about 4 inches shorter than Suzanne. As usual, Suzanne will head for the kids slide whenever we visit that clinic. Seeing Suzanne, the boy, whom we shall now call as Romeo, for the sake of identification (sic!), went to the slide too. And they played together under the watchful eyes of both families.

I noticed that the boy, Romeo, was forever trying to get Suzanne into a conversation but my girl kept quiet the whole time. She just focused on climbing the steps and sliding down. Romeo never gave up. He would follow Suzanne up the steps and then slide down too.

After a while, I think Suzanne got bored and came back for manja-ing from her Belacan daddy. Romeo followed her and said, rather gruffly with gesturing hands, "Come!". Suzanne just stared at him blankly. "Come!", said Romeo again with a slightly louder voice. At that point, Romeo's mother called him back and reprimanded him for disturbing Suzanne.

Shortly, we took our medication and left. Seeing Suzanne leaving, Romeo quickly ran out of the clinic and followed Suzanne! I can hear his mom shouting to him to go back! hahahaha! About 12 feet away from the clinic's door, I asked Suzanne to wave Romeo goodbye but she didn't want to. Just then Romeo stopped in his tracks and looked at me. Mischievously, I gave him the Stare-of-Death for 1 second. Our young Romeo immediately ran back into the clinic, muahahahahar!

Since I am a subject-matter-expert, I am thinking of writing a book, "How to Manage Buayas for Pre-teen Girls". Should be a best-seller among parents with girls, eh?

Belacan says... "Chapter 1: Buayas like to be lovingly whipped! Muahahahahar!"

cute girl lah..

can imagine all potential dates have to be stopped, scanned, questioned before going out with Suzanne.

btw, it's better to conceal her identity.. just to be on the safe side. who knows there might be crazy psychotic stalkers out there you know what I mean?

Nina said...

(SMILE) That is the way to teach her . . . my daughter is 23 years old and married, so I no longer have to worry. But you will have fun ahead I tell you, a lot of fun.

You will need to worry when Suzanne is interested in Romeo, till then keep practicing that Stare-of-Death.

A very well written blog. Keep it up ...

Hi there

Apologies for posting an off topic question here.

I am invitation your views on ABORTION in order to present a case to help those in the developing world.

I personally see abortion as a NECESSARY EVIL and that unwanted pregnancy is not only a personal problem and it is also a very real problem for the society at large.

Do you think it is right to burden say a 15 years old school-going girl with a new life when she is yet to have any economic mean to sustain herself and obviously, most girls of her age are not mentally ready for a family life. Furthermore, is it fair to rob her of her career, aspiration, dream etc., in the name of preserving a life that is yet to be fully developed.

If you have an opinion, please email it to me at divinetalk@gmail.com or if you wish, you may post your comment here: Your Onions Counts!
