Happy Birthday and Happy Father’s Day, abah!
Hanis: Along, guess whattt…
Me: Ko pregnant?
Hanis: Ha’ahhhh!!!! Aaaaa…
Don’t ask me how I know it. Sisterly-instinct! I was over the moon when I heard the news.
Hanis. Pregnant. Baby. Cute baby stuff. Wooohh! But then it occured to me – if she’s gonna have a baby, that would soon make me err… Mak Long? Ohhoo… Kak Long, more like! I mean, I’m not even married yet! ;p
We went on talking excitedly about babies, maternity wears (she complained about GUESS not having bajus for pregnant ladies. Haha. But hey, she has a point. I mean, there are GUESS Kids. What about GUESS Maternity or something?).
Anyway, I was supposed to keep it as a secret and act surprised when they announce it later on masa family get-together, and so I did but do you know how hard it is to keep my mouth shut?? Especially to my other adiks. I mean, sister-get-preggy is not an everyday thing! So instead of spilling out the secret, I made up a story. I told my bro that Hanis and her husband nak belanja makan because they wanted to announce about migrating to the States, konon-konon Rahz dpt kerja sana (I don’t know where that came from). And my bro believed me, and he told my dad about it (and then he told him not to tell mama; bagus la tuuu, dua-dua kena tipu!) and he too, believed it! haha.
