Asian mothers

You know you're an Asian when your mum's be like:
Sick Me         : *coughs a little*
Mum     : (footsteps from three rooms away) Why are you coughing? Go take your medicine! You’re not going anywhere until you get better.
When crossing the road Mum     : Be careful when you cross the road. Call me when you reach the other side sayang *watched from across*
Me         : *crosses the road*
Mum     : *calls* WHY DIDN’T YOU CALL ME! You could’ve died!
Going on a trip with friends Mum     : Be sure to pack your bags. Don’t forget your bras and panties else you’ll get itchy recycling them. Bring your panadol along in case you got sick. Did you get your pads inside? Why are you bringing so many pairs of pants? Where’s your umbrella? Don’t even think of wearing this skirt young lady! You’re not going anywhere without your water bottle. Don’t go to clubs or I’ll decapitate your limbs.
Me         : …
Going swimming Me         : Ma can I go for a swim?
Mum     : No, you’ll drown and die.
G…

Go.

I held none to it, your promises. They were bluffs only I knew.
A small part of me hoped That you'd prove me wrong. But you didn't.
You didn't.

Ten years from now

Have you ever wondered about what happens ten years from now?

Will you fall in love?
Will you finally be noticed?
Will you be a good employee?
Will you earn well?

I'd leave out the latter two.
Clashes with the theme y'know.

For 21 years of my life, most things seem to stay the same.
I'm still as invisible as I was.

I like home.
I love my room.
I like things the way they are;
my books at the side of the table,
my clothes being everywhere,
my undergarments in place (not that it mattered).

These little things (nope this isn't 1D) make you feel somewhat familiar.
For the same reason, you find it difficult to adjust with the slightest change.
It all depends on how well you take it.

Ten years from now;
you'd wonder who first made you giddy inside,
who first held your hands,
whoever made you think about them around the clock,
whoever broke your heart.

You'd prolly laugh or cry or both;
frustrated or happy that things happened the way it's supposed to.
You'd pro…
