Today is MY BIRTHDAY

I’m wearing the ‘voges’ dress today (consider it vogue-lah, he,he..) in my favourite colour dark chocolate bought by dear hubby but selected by me team it up with pink inner with a new bright pink shawl full of ‘lip-lap’ manik and cream-coloured pants.

I made a mental note to appear cheerful despite the constant aching on my back..

Ya, I’m half recovering from very bad tonsilitis (SP?) & fever. It was just so sudden, on Monday night we tried this 3 layer tea, which was very yummy & in the middle of the night, I woke up suddenly with a very bad sore throat. Felt like a stone stuck in my throat.I whined to dear hubby whom was yet not in bed engrossed with report due for submission the following day.The next morning, I laid flat! Aching all over my body & saliva swallowing was too painful & barely abled to speak. Doctor said I had a really bad tonsilitis & if I delayed the treatment, I probably need a minor surgery.

So, on Medical leave for two days and practically like a zombie. I had to stop the drugged pills since it made me go cuckoo & I hate being in that state.Today, I’m back to work & still enduring the aching all over.My throat felt slightly better.

Well, how old am I now?

Age is just a number. What matters most is the wisdom and happiness.

And, err..please don’t call me Kakak if your age is between 25 to 35 , and by the way, do you really know my age?

Speaking about the panggilan kakak, how one decide to call one woman kakak?

Say you are meeting stranger..do you immediately always call everyone kakak? Or is is by the look? Or looking at the number of children and the age of the eldest child?

The panggilan kakak is very subjective matter.

As for myself, I prefer to be called Puan instead by total stranger or distant acquaintance but among friends, just call me by my name. I got goosebumps all over when someone call me Kakak. Blame it to the fact, being the youngest sibling & I still refer myself as ‘Adik’ although am a mother of two boys already. And, my parents & my siblings even my relatives still call me Adik.

Hubby said some people call Kakak out of respect like a pangkat or something. I have to agree with that but in my case, it’s not too easy for me.Once I being called Kakak, I would become less friendly to that person automatically.

Sorry but I could not help it to feel this way.You can say that I’m perasan muda or whatsoever, but I like to keep in friendly terms without any sort of faint boundaries with this sort of thing.Respect goes to everyone whatever age & background so why bother with all this panggilan? Well, unless, she herself referred herself as Kakak, then we should respect her by calling her of what she’s comfort with.

As for me, just call me Hanz. Nothing fancy about it.

Err..please bear with my nonsensical ramblings today. The cuckoo head still remains. Sigh..

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME!

  14. hepi besday hanz.. semoga dimurahkan rezeki dan cepat sembuh..kakyong suka di panggil KAKAK… sbb dr kecik memang dipanggil kakak @ kakyong.. ;)kalo di pejabat definitely prefer di panggil PUAN.. tp kalo jumpa org baru kenal kat pasar @ stesen bas, takkan nak panggil saudari/puan.. so panggilan kakak tu kan lebih mesra drp panggil makcik… 😉
