Mother’s Day is coming up this Sunday, 14th May, in case you didn’t know (I got chu fam, don’t worry about it) and every year we, the children, try to do something different. From a child to a teenager up to an adult, nonetheless we try our best to give the best gifts for our beloved mums and we try our best to not piss her off. Just as a sign of appreciation. Sometimes we nail it, other times we failed but it’s the thought that counts ya know. Anyway, here are some expectation versus reality of our brilliant Mother’s Day ideas as gift.
1. A CLEAN HOME
The night before, we’d plan in our heads that we’re gonna wake up early and clean the house before mum wakes up. But…this is what happens the next day.
Our favourite TV show was on and we just can’t help it. Sigh.. but then again, we did try to clean up and this is just how far best it can go. Still a little messy but at least the stuff are in where they belong. Hehe… In the end of the day, mum would still be happy with our little effort, I’m sure.
2. A BOUQUET OF FLOWERS
Every MALAYSIAN gets this for Valentine’s Day/Mother Day/ Teacher’s Day lah tbh. Anyway, the truth is we don’t always get her flowers, so surprising her with a bouquet of it will definitely make her happy! But of course we totally can’t afford that BEAUTIFUL bouquet, we did try tho.
That strand of rose is super iconic actually. Hahaha! Everyone can relate to this because its true. We picture in our heads that we’re gonna get mum this bouquet of flowers but only end up with that strand lah somehow.
3. HOME COOKED MEAL
We attempt to give mum a break in the kitchen by cooking her a whole home cooked meal.
She expects a meal but in reality we mess up the kitchen and it take years to clean it up! SORRY MUM! We tried!
4. PRETTY GIFT BOX
You know when we buy her something and we need to wrap in up but your wrapping skills suck so you find a box that fits and just wrap that up instead? Yea, exactly my point here. We find whatever box that fits.
In REAL reality tho, we actually use the underwear box. YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN. But it would be a little explicit to actually put that there. Ya’ll get the idea of this. Those pretty gift boxes tho, extremely expensive. NOT worth it.
5. A HOME BAKED CAKE
Getting down and dirty in the kitchen with baking and all, it’s usually hard to hide away from mum when it comes to baking because she’d know anyway by the smell of it.
Just like that attempt to give her a day off in the kitchen, we mess the kitchen up yet again. Sigh… the other reality to this home baked cake by the way would be this…
In all seriousness, put on your best behavior and try not to piss her off on this special day. If you haven’t got an idea on how you want to spend Mother’s Day with her, just know that time is all she wants from you. Happy Mother’s Day to all mothers around the world. You don’t have to have kids to be a mother, your unconditional love already makes you one!
