Something irked me today. Very angry at that moment but I let it pass and got over it.
I was waiting for Amber at tuition, busy texting my friends on a crab dinner tonight. Hubs was talking to a prospect at the tuition class. Tuition teacher was listening to hubs proposal and talking to Amber at the same time. TT was a demure young lady.
I said 'was'... you'll know why now .........
Amber was fidgety and as usual, boh-tiam ! It was almost 10pm and that girl had 2.5 hours of tuition work and naturally, she was tired and restless
TT kept asking her to speak in Mandarin and for this, I appreciate her efforts. I've asked her to speak to Amber in Mandarin to improve on her language.
Amber relented and spoke very loud. I have to say, Amber is loud. L-O-U-D !! TT said something like.. ask you to speak Mandarin , you dun wan.. So parlia wan !
My antennaes ticked... parlia ?? did she just say parlia ??
Ohh kay,, I minded my own business, looking through her homework.. 2 seconds later.. again..
so parlia wan ?? I kept my cool...
Then she walked away to another room and giggled ... something about Amber and again...
so parlia wan ?
I asked hubs.. did I hear wrong ? I heard 'parlia' 3 times !!! Hubs - the blur also nodded and thought he heard her uttering 'parlia'
I kept my cool, I didn't want to confront her in front of Amber, otherwise the fart will learn a new word today and I can bet my last Ringgit, she WILL utter 'parlia' and will ask till no end, the meaning of the word..
For god's sake... SO PARLIA ???
Takes a parlia of the highest order to call another, parlia !
and what's parlia by the way ??? I searched and googled.. tak dapat wor...
