I had a nightmare last Friday evening. I was supposed to go Pasar Malam with mil, bb and maids but since I had a disagreement with hubby and wanted to talk it out so mil, bb and maids went off first.
After my heated discussion with hubby, I stormed off to the pasar malam to buy some grocery for weekend. Still angry, while walking I bumped into mil. She was all nerves, I asked her what happened. She said two maids and bb were missing, she asked them to wait in front of the keropok stall while she grabbed some Assam Laksa and when she turned back they were gone. Worried sick, I called for them and also asked the keropok’s stall lady boss. All said no sign of two maids and bb.
I walked up to the long and narrow road of the busy pasar malam, looking around anxiously. I almost burst into tears when I don't see them. The road was so busy, but my heart just dropped and everything seems so giddy right in front of me. I was so fretful; my mind started playing tricks on me. “What if bb got kidnapped by the maid”, “What if they took him away and I never see him again.” “bb, where are you?” “bb please, where are you” , “God, please help me to find bb”. I was like a mad lady walking about frowning.
A girl approached me, “Would you like to do some charity for the less fortunate?”. I was thinking, “Okay GOD, please help me to find my son”. Right after taking out RM10, hubby called, informed that maids and bb was home safely. Phew!!! I was relief instantly. Still trembling a little, I handed over my RM10 to the lady in exchange for a cheap looking tooth brush. What an expensive tooth brush. No complaint, it was for charity.
Apparently, it was a misunderstanding; maids thought mil asked them to bring bb home first.
A misunderstanding really made mommy's heart-broken. But Thank GOD, you were okay.
Mil and myself
Promised each other, either one of us has to carry bb when we go to the pasar malam, not the maid.
