Every single raya you will find this kind of problem. Nothing can ever quench the thirst of the makciks who love to ask you questions like:
"Bila nak kahwin?"
"Bila nak ada baby?"
"Bila nak beli rumah?"
Guess what? As a normal human being, I too want a family of my own. Want a wife who I can love day and night, to be a great husband. Believe me, I am ready to settle down - I'm ready.
..except in the money department lah. Most young professionals find it hard to start a life because they are having not enough money. I'm lucky to have better luck than most of them for starting but the problem is still there - not enough money. If it were up to us, my partner and I would be just fine with a ring and doa selamat but you know, the same makcik will say things they are not supposed to do. Besides, some parents like to do it the traditional way but we don't want to sacrifice our future for the sake of a 1-day party. I don't think that's right at all. I even started an online business selling pearls to friends and followers (which went well, by the way).
So, I took some time at work today when there was no class to teach and I had finished all the work I was supposed to do to draw these cartoons to illustrate how to tackle the annoying makciks' question. If you're pushing, then you're paying lah kan?
I will seriously do this. Hopefully nobody will get mad about this :P
