This is a Monday's Musings - Random thoughts, feelings and musings by Yours Truly entry under my themed blog posts! For more info about the themed blog posts, do read the entry here.
I think most of my Monday's Musings entries comes from real life experiences. When irked, amused, I think it makes good content for Monday's boliaoness posts. These are all true experiences where I faced during dating then engagement till marriage life.
1. When are you guys getting married ah?
I'm sure many of you guys face this question, especially during Chinese New Year. If your partner has yet to propose, this will be an extremely awkward moment. I myself have made this mistake many times. Oops.
2. Have you applied for a BTO?
There's a saying that there is no romance in Singapore. Nowadays couples apply for a BTO before getting engaged. Declaring that you have applied for a BTO is as good as saying "Yes, we're getting married." I remember reading this on a t-shirt "Would you BTO me?" Hurhur.
After the proposal.
3. How big is the ring? How much did he spent on it?
Seriously, I had this question posed to me. Why are you comparing my ring? It feels like that person just wanted to 1-up us. Bo liao. Compete for what? Wanna compete if your balls bigger than my husband's?
When planning for your wedding dinner.
I've written about this before in my wedding pet peeves but I'll summarise and add it in here too!
4. How much is per table ah?
WTF. You do not ask a couple that. It's like a loaded question. Give whatever you wanna give la. And can't you Google? Please don't tell me you wanna know cos you wanna gauge how much to give for the angbao. KNN!
5. Can I bring a +1?
If I answered no and you persist on bringing a +1, then why bother asking me? You "forgot" ah? You good.
After the wedding dinner.
6. How much was the wedding ah? How much did you lose?
I find this extremely irritating. If you are not looking at the extent of what I did for my wedding then it shouldn't affect you. I don't know some people (mainly the unmarried ones) thinks that wedding = profits. Honey, that's the wrong mindset. And seriously, some people are so el cheapo. Don't do wedding dinner lah if you have that kind of mindset!
7. When are you gonna have kids?
How about, when are you gonna shut the mother father up? I wrote about this in my last Monday's Musings post.
8. Why bother having a wedding dinner?
Because we have our reasons and it's a choice? Showing disdain over our choice of having a traditional banquet is silly. Not everyone is like you. We don't show disdain over your choice of partners, do we? Personally, yes, a traditional banquet would have never crossed my mind in the first place, but I loved planning for it and I loved how it turned out. I don't regret at all having a wedding dinner and it was a great experience for me. It's not my fault if you didn't enjoy planning yours. If you choose to elope or have a BBQ for your wedding, by all means. That ain't our style.
9. Why "this", Why "that"?
For example, why the choice of your BTO's location, Punggol so mother father far! Why Punggol? Why you choose to host your ROM there? Singapore Flyer so ex! Why did you have 47 tables for your wedding? Why Orchard Hotel? why the venue? Why did you have a candy table? Why did you have a Photo Booth? why the setting of your engagement ring? Why a half infinity ring for your wedding band? Why your ring don't match with Skai? Why are you going to Maldives? Not ex meh? Why do you go for Singapore staycations often? How much do you spend a year on staycations? Why did you buy a Chanel bag? Not expensive meh? Why did you choose that design for your MCM bag? How much was it? why why why mother father why why why?! Because we like it lah. Can? Wah lao eh. Lao niang buay tahan lah!
These are some of the irritating things that people have asked Skai aka c(hubby) and I. SO DAMN IRRITATING!!!!!!!!! What have you faced personally? Do comment in this entry! Also, what other things you've heard that you think should be on this list? Please feel free to comment!
