Breakfast With Grandpa

20 years ago, my grand dad drives me to small cafe close to our home town for breakfast. Yesterday, I drove him. I guess time has changed  😈

As usual, he’d spread that ‘Berita Harian’ wide open, slowly sipping his thick black coffee. I asked for the comic section. Somethings, never change Β Β  ➑

After he’s done scanning all the headlines, he folded the news paper neatly and tucked it under my car key. He asked,”what do you want to be?” “Huh?” I replied. He rephrased,”when are you getting married?” Β  😯

The killer question again. But I guess this time is different, he looks more serious than ever. “I told you, I want to marry a doctor“, I replied. He glared and sipped that coffee before he starts his lecture Β  πŸ˜₯

You see Win, it doesn’t matter to whom you want to be married to. As long as she’ll be a good mother“, his opening speech nudged my headΒ Β  😑

It’s more than a lifetime worth of companionship. If you die early, then she’d be alone. Do you think she can handle it? Raising kids on her own would be tough.” he added Β  πŸ™„

*gulp* *yikes*

I don’t recall grandpa giving thought provoking tutorials like these before. I think he’s just upset with grandma being in the hospital. A good grand son like myself, nodded in agreement, although it contradicts some of my beliefsΒ Β  ➑

ps: I’ll definitely have breakfast with grandpa again (while he’s still in KL)

pss: Next time I’ll deviate to political topics. Let’s see who can shut who up

psss: Grand pa, by all means, it doesn’t matter how long one lived, it’s what you do with that life.

  1. Huh….lucky you still have your grandpa.. I have none anymore..u better enjoy his company while it still lasts.

    linie’s last blog post..Going Away

  2. u r sure one lucky grand son:smile: me on the other hand,never had a grand pa.btw,he has good point though

  3. i think his point got nothing to do with how long one lived, it’s about making sure the ones u left behind is well taken care of. marriage, as ‘yikes’ as it sounds, is often about what u can give, not what u get. i know. yikes. hahaha

    maybe as u get older u’ll grasp the concept. but till u grasp it, stay clear of saying ‘i want to marry a doctor’ depan org tua2. u’ll sound so high school. yikes no.2. haha. nway that’s just tips.

    lastly, u talked to grandpa! mine hated me all his life, bcoz he hated my dad. n i grasped marriage concept when my parents marriage was falling apart. ouch.

    sangat envy. ur family seems so normal. πŸ™

  4. Of course there’s some underlying problem in any given family. I wouldn’t spread all the details here.

    Salmie, I’m more than ready to become a husband or dad. I just haven’t met the One. The one of course being a doctor or medical student. Hahaha.

  5. best nya masih ada grandpa.. eddie, kenapa kamu mau kahwin dgn doctor? saya just curious nak tau.. heheh *poyos*

    p.s: semua orang becerita tentang the perfect someone now..

    p.s.s: i wanna marry an engineer.. πŸ˜‰

  6. i want to marry my man

  7. i want to marry my girl. bro..i agree with you but i guess ur grandpa is sharing his life experience with you… πŸ‘Ώ

    laila’s last blog post..why today?

  10. hahaha, eddie, ‘normal’ as in trying to kill each other but still together, u know what i meant. :p that’s what i’m envy of. but i have no prob admitting mine isn’t.

    i take it u prefer not to be bore with yikes ‘M’ detail n words of wisdom, kan. hahaha. as long as it works out well with ‘the One’ dah la ye tak.

    lets pray u eventually meet ‘her’ very2 soon, then. don’t forget to send me the invitation. πŸ˜‰

    nasrul’s last blog post..I’m a PHP-Lover

    AyUmi’s last blog post..:: itchy madness ::

  14. uwaa… I miss my late grandpa! πŸ˜₯ I never did get the chance to drive him around …

    melbie’s last blog post..Buy Gadgets Online

  15. pernah tules 3-4 kali, tp setiap kali, alasan die lain2 πŸ˜€

  16. NH bukan tempat utk korang berasmara πŸ™„

  17. Im just lucky my parents gave birth to me early.

  18. inspired? Well, technically yes and no.

    Inspiration comes from my surrounding. Could be anything.

  19. lucky my grand dad quit smoking.

  20. I wish you all the luck in the world for your chemistry paper!

    Dont worry hun, you’ll nail it :up:

  21. ok SALMI.

    It’s not boring, but somethings are better left unsaid. Unless youre giving me a business lecture, then thats different.

    “To live a life, one must live it” – Red Indian proverb.

  22. yeah lucky me. ade kawan nak tgk wrestling sesame πŸ˜€

  23. he quiet la all the time. but i do poke him many times so he’d create a conversation with me. e.g. Zaman Jepun, zaman dulu2, harga barang dulu2.

    He said there was such things as 1/4 cent. That could get you a nasi lemak. How cool is that?

  24. It reminds me of my granpa. My Granpa is very talkative. πŸ˜€ Love to chat with him all day long. Sorry but it’s really intriguing to know why u want to marry a doctor.eheh. bcos as far as i’m concern, they are really busy..sangat πŸ™„ huhu

  25. Aww.. that’s sweet! Makan2 ngan atok. πŸ™‚ Both of my grand dads are no longer in this world. One left the world when I was really2 young so I couldn’t recall anything and the other one, I wasn’t that close to him pun. πŸ™ You grand dad really has a point there. Anyway, my elder sis pun asyik kena tanya soalan yang sama. And everytime she was asked, she would reply with the same answer, “Nak kerja dulu..”

    Nak doctor yeh? A lot of my friends are still single. πŸ˜› πŸ˜›

    Mira’s last blog post..That’s all that I ask

  26. Ur granpa sounds cute πŸ™‚ and I guess he has a point (even tho i don’t quite agree πŸ˜† )

    I can only dream that my late granpas would be like that if they’re still alive πŸ™‚

    Nads’s last blog post..Julia Tagged Me >.<

  27. Suruh dorang antar application letter. Hahaha ❗

    I’d be glad if you introduce me to some of your friends. Jadi kawan pon ok la ➑

  28. His valid point – marry someone who’ll definitely become good mothers.

  29. best. lebih2 lagi bile atuk tu layan kite mcm orang tue gak πŸ™‚

  30. but the 20 reasons yang i baca tu masuk akal la jugak. hahahaha. no wonder you wanna marry a doctor.

    AyUmi’s last blog post..:: itchy madness ::

  31. ade 20 reasons? Eh.. byk nye.

    Basically tade la logical sgt. I just want my better half to be a humanitarian. Pastu travel half way around the globe to help around.

  32. dia yang tulis 20 reasons, terkejut pulak tiba-tiba πŸ™„ i cuma ingat satu je, you cakap a girl with baju kurung, kot putih labuh, and stetoskop nampak seksi. πŸ˜†

    AyUmi’s last blog post..:: itchy madness ::

  33. My bro would be a doctor Sept 09…but you can’t marry him..ha..ha Kawan2 perempuan dia ramai bakal jadi calun doctor…

    linie’s last blog post..Going Away

  34. 1/4 cent for nasi lemak?awesome!can eat nasi lemak whole day. πŸ˜€

  35. is it good to marry a businessman? hahah *out of topic* πŸ˜•

    i want a businessman πŸ˜†

    ika’s last blog post..Labanon ^.^

  36. Hehehe.. mane igt. Dah lame.

    baju kurung + lab coat + stethoscope on her neck = uber goddess!

    Baju kurung itself dah cukup seksi.

  37. nak nak nak, nak kenal! 😯

  38. it depends what business he’s in. most definitely not someone who deals with haram or not according to syariah. you dont want to feed your kids with unblessed income ➑

  39. I find myself doing exactly the same thing you did – every time when my dad buys his daily dose of The Star, I’ll ask for the comic section (which is in Star Two) πŸ˜€ for some reason the comic strips always brighten up my day! Although headlines are meant to be the first thing I should read… I’ll always settle for the comic strips first.

    Speaking of life companionship, I realise that quite a lot of guys, since young, wanted to marry someone exactly like their mom πŸ™‚ when my dad asked me what kind of wife I’m looking for, I’ll say I want to marry someone just like my mom. I gave the same answer when my maternal grandpa asked me the same question – I want to marry someone like your daughter πŸ˜‰

    teddY’s last blog post..teddY-risatioNβ„’ Zeta Released!

  44. aha.. nono pun nak tulis about why i want to marry an engineer kah? :kiss:

    i guess, sebab nya nanti mesti sama je dengan i. πŸ˜†

    but anyway, one reason for sure why i want to marry an engineer is.. ermm.. my ex bf is an engineer. kinda miss him. πŸ™„

    AyUmi’s last blog post..:: itchy madness ::

  45. i never meet my grandpa. yeah it is nice talking to somebody from a different era or generation. often enlightening and refreshing after chatting with them.
