They say, the first couple fight, is the worst among all.
Right this moment, I am on a strike with my husband.
So, as to remind how much a wonderful man he is, I reminiscence his wise words.
My neighbour is currently renovating his house. His house is brand new and very beautiful. At first, I thought he only wanted to tweak a bit here and there for the house. I was wrong. Tengok-tengok, it is a major revamp, which is still undergoing.
Me: Abang, rumah dia dah cantik dah. Tapi apa lagi dia nak renovate?
Husband: Itulah pasal...Dia tak puas hati lagi lah kot...You tau tak apa orang cakap kalau kita selalu tak puas hati?
Me: Apa dia?
Husband: Duit yang kita guna tu tak berkat...
He elaborated that a berkat rezeki should always makes us feel contented.
"Kalau duit tu tak berkat, kalau orang tu kaya pun, orang tu jadi suka membazir sebab selalu tak puas hati. Last-last, sebab dah banyak membazir, orang tu punya duit sama juga," he said.
He furthermore gave an example, "You tengok pelacur. Memang banyak duit. Satu malam dapat berapa? Tapi diorang tak kaya pun..."
So, think twice before you say, "I am not satisfied!"
"Yang, kita kahwin juga akhirnya. Kita ni banyak betul dugaan. Kita kena kahwin betul-betul yang, sampai mati I sayang. Sebab susah sangat nak dapat awak."
Dah, jangan nak perasan suami kau seorang bagus sayang isteri. Memanglah suami sayang isteri! (Padahal sekarang tengah cold war)
Have you read July issue of the Reader's Digest?
On page 8, there's a letter from a reader telling her story being left by her husband only after two years of marriage.
God forbid that ever happens to me.
I can imagine the woman's joy when she got married. After two years, they are all just sad memories.
If I were in her shoes, I don't know, I'd probably kill my husband. I'd hate him forever. I'd stop blogging. I'd run away and live in another country. I don't know.
On my wedding day, a close friend gave a nice gift together with a card. In it, written something "Bla, bla, bla. You're and inspiration to me that despite all the hardship, TRUE LOVE will prevail!"
Alamak, pressure lah pulak!
My husband left me for work. I was trying to be tough but he saw the sadness.
I knew he felt guilty for not being able to spend more time with me.
He hugged me and said, "Abang pergi bukan tinggalkan you. Abang pergi sebab nak kerja, nak cari rezeki, nak jaga awak baik-baik. Nanti kita dah kaya, Abang bagi semua yang you nak, okay?"
Ish. Sebak lah time tu.
I know he's so hardworking and trying his best to make me happy. But I keep on demanding for more.
Okay, better apologize to him now.
