School Boy Series (Part 2.1) - NickCruiser Supplement

I chatted with Emily recently regarding my blog about Nick the Filipino Cruiser where she remarked that if the rumour was true, Nick's daughter would have been her age.

This kinda prompted my next question to everybody reading this.

How would it feel if, assuming you, under 20 years of age, are a girl and your dad is still in his 30s? Or assuming you are a guy, your mom likewise?

Can you imagine finding yourself cheonging the same places as your dad/mom?

Worse, because of the latter's financial advantage, he/she goes right in while you find yourself stranded at the back of the queue inching toward the mercy of the bouncer/door bitch.

Or lagi worse, he/she openly calls out to you "Ah Boy/Girl ah? You got enough cab fare to go home later or not? Oh yah, your jeans washed already. It's hanging to dry in the balcony." Wah lau eh. Kan si lang lao kwee.

The closest I've ever encountered is a friend's mom who partied with us at Zouk wine Bar. She was in her late 40s when we were just a bunch of pathetically poor undergrads. While I know that I kinda restricted the age limit in this blog to under 40 and she was over by about a decade, I would make the exception for her here as she doesn't act like she was almost 50. She was so full of energy that I was totally floored in awe, when I first met her.

My friend, Teng, was ok about it coz according to him, they have been "doing this" since JC days". Teng's mom, Ivy, was one happening mother who was also generous with her young friends. While we know it is kinda awkward to be leeching on the booze and smokes, it must be said, it was Hubson's Choice as we were penniless students. Besides, how to say no to booze?

Going forward, she was a class act who didn't put up any airs. She talked to us as equals and just as freely as she dispensed her advice, she was also very open minded to hear what we had to say as well as our new ideas.

As with all booze, there was naturally this thing called the beer-goggles. She was already quite a good-looker to begin with and the goggles made her lagi more appealing with every peg of alcohol that flowed freely down the esophagus.

We had an incident one time with a certain Alex, fully buzzed on the booze confessing his crush on Ivy, to the side-splitting laughter of the entire bunch, sans a certain visibly annoyed Teng who was totally NOT amused.

She laughed, shielding her face with her hands like a school girl while stomping her feet.

She stepped over and planted a wet one on his blushing cheek and called him a "Silly Boy" while attempting to rub off the lipstick mark with her fingers thereafter.

Alex was out of commission for the rest of the night as he just sat there totally smittened and spaced out.

... and NO, Ivy did not "tah pao" the young Alex home that night. It would have to be over Teng's cold dead body. hahahahaah.....

Anyone have young parents? How is it like? What about if anyone know somebody who have young parents? Share with us here, won't you?

Oh my.. I cant imagine my mom going clubbing. With me nonetheless. Nonononono. She would be saying "Wah.. So smoky here! Go there go there! CANNOT DRINK!! Drink PLAIN WATER!!!"

But I think it's totally cool to have young parents. Generation-gap does not help me at all!

kIm: Sekali, it's the other way round to see the child nagging at the parent to stop buayaing your friend!!!

Anyway, thanks for dropping by. Just found out about your site on Saturday from Technorati when it said that I was linked to your site.

if my mum wants to chiong, she can go chiong herself, I dun think I would like to see that kiss happening with one of my guy frens my age. the thing is, she is free to do anything, provided I dunno the person she's involved with.

kIm: Wah... say my blog "damn nice". *blush* Glad to know that you liked it.

AKK: I think the real problem here will be when you realised there and then that your mom is having a lagi more happening time that you are. Wah... that one really cannot take it. :P

hitomi: Oh I wish she would let me! But I think perhaps our age-gap is just too great to overlook?

i think young parents can be kinda cool. of course, as long as they're open minded enough.
go clubbing with mummy and daddy, then got people to pay for my drinks, liddat very good leh!! haha :p

i have friends whose parents are totally cool about the whole "hang out with your friends and we all drink and talk cock together" thing. their parents drink and smoke with us, and they sometimes even act younger than us! heh.

i envy my friends, sometimes. would be nice to have "open" parents. but i suppose not everyone can be like that. and i know my parents love me in their own way :)

ei|een: I guess the uncomfortableness is all psychological.
Maybe if can get over the initially mental barrier, then it will be all good.

Pam: I am beginning to understand what you are talking about. Are there that many of them?

yes...there are MANY. and they don't pay tax... and they get lots of benefits. as an aside, apparently some of the would-be bombers have been on benefits (free house, free least, plus extra money for food/booze/fags).... ! argh. makes my blood boil.

Pam: Hmm... you starting to sound like a Republican or in the England sense, a Conservative?

i think i'm sounding like a normal taxpayer not willing to spend my money on wasters. it's ok to have benefits for the young, the old, the sick. but when they pretend sick? when they can't be arsed to work? that's where the problem begins. when they spend the money they get for baby, on fags and drinks, that's when it makes me blood really boil. did you know, the old have to PAY TAX on top of the benefits they get? so it's taxable 'income'... for income that they earned and paid into when they were working.
