The good things about being Mrs Ang

The Good Things about being Mrs Ang
4 weeks have passed since i ditched my 'Chua' surname and adopted the 'Ang' surname... (and i have yet to collect my wedding photos) ... humph!!!....
i have officially moved to hougang...currently staying with Mr Ang and his family... dominic (younger brother) has kindly shifted to kok yong (older brother)'s room so that i can share the room with Mr Ang ...
but as we are both lazy to get a double bed cos we dun wanna have to move it to the new house which is 2 blocks away a few months later, we ended up squeezing on Mr Ang's single bed ...hahaha... and this will continue until our house is done up...say around end march or early april bah....
it's a new experience staying with the Angs as this family is totally different from the Chuas... first of all... they have no maid... so everything at home is done by 洪妈妈... but the cleaniess and neatness check officier is actually 洪爸爸... and both of them together is what i term the 二十四孝父母...
example of a typical day at home with the Angs,
  • 洪妈妈/洪爸爸 will take turns to wake kok yong up for work while i wake my Mr Ang...
  • 洪妈妈/洪爸爸 will take turns to prepare breakfast (coffee & bread) for the 2 sleepy heads
  • kok yong will drive my Mr Ang to school on the way to work while 洪妈妈/洪爸爸 and I go back to sleep
  • But before sleeping, 洪爸爸 will do his routine spot check of the house and make sure everything is tidy and neat.. else he will pack and arrange and put everything in place before he goes back to sleep... what do i mean by putting everything neatly leh... he will stack all the plates and pots that were washed at dinner time into the cupboards, roll up my lappy charger wire and placed them on the study table etc etc... he's a neat freak but he dosen nag when we are abit messy.... he wil ljust make sure he tidies our messiness for us... i likey him... hahaha.... but i wil also 自动 la... i try to observe what he tidies up and i try to put all my things neatly so that he dosen have to tidy up my things for me... abit paiseh to have my father-in-law tidying up after me lo...
  • i usually wakes up around 8-9+... by this time, 洪妈妈 will have waken up and getting ready to go to work, she is a part time staff at NTUC till end feb... sometimes she will make honey water for me, pass me newspaper and then we will chitchat a little as i stay stoned and prepare to go to work too...
  • i will usually reached home around 8+ at night then there will be hot hot dinner waiting... cos it's the Ang's policy that everyone has a hot hot dinner... how is that possible leh??? 洪妈妈's dishes are usually very simple such as boiled brocolli, fried eggs etc... so it's possible for her to cook in small portion for everyone whenever that someone comes home... and she makes it a point to heat up the soup for everyone too...
  • then i will help with the dishes, a chore which 洪妈妈 refused to let me do initially cos my mum had told her that i dun do housework one... and it's a culture to just leave your dishes on the table for 洪妈妈 to clean up after a meal... told u they are 二十四孝父母 lo....
  • after which 洪妈妈 will cut some fruits for everyone
  • then 洪妈妈 will check if everyone has bathed before she start washing her clothes... this is something very special to me... cos she washes clothes after 1030pm everynight... hahaha.... and initially, she hand wash all my clothes... and i only realised it after 10 days... =P... i went up to her to ask if it's because girls clothes cannot be washed together with the guys' clothes??? she say no, she say that she is afraid that my clothes are expensive clothing and that putting them into the washing machine will result in them expanding.... wahahaha... we had a good laugh when i told her all my clothing are less than $20 each and my t - shirts are usually less than $10 each.... by all means, wash it in the washing machine.... haiyo... the Ang family is just such a nice family that i cant help falling in love with the parents too lo... i just feel so fortunate to be part of them... =)
  • lights out is usually approx 11 - 12pm for me now... and i m the earliest one to head off to bed... =p

a few more reasons for me to love the Ang's family:

1) after 2 months of year end holiday, my sport shoes for the last 2 years plus decided to call it quit.... so in the dump it went, dig dig dig and found my the other pair of sport shoes which i seldom wear... puma one oh... and within a week, it decided to open its big mouth (the sole came off)... and on the night where i was asking if there's any cobbler in the area, 洪爸爸 took out a can of shoe glue and a block of sandpaper and part time as my cobbler... =)... so nice of him.... and he even check my shoes every other day to ensure that the sole remained attached to the shoes and even did a re-mend 2 days later when he saw that the tip was coming off again... so touchy touchy touchy.... how can i not likey the Ang family lo... =)

2) it's happy family every day at the Angs family... there's alot of communication and update about each others work or school everyday.... everyone knows about almost everyone colleagues / friends / schoolmates by name and the things that they do... =)... i enjoy all these conversation every night and it's so fun laughing at the things that happens ...they always make it sound so funny and exciting... =)
