Ambitions

During the long school holidays, YX followed me to the office every working days. Along the way from home to the office and vice versa, he must had observed the surrounding and one fine day, he told me ................

Ambition 1
YX : Mama, when I grew up, I wanted to be a GRASS CUTTER !  *so proud of his ambition*
Me : What ? Why of all job you choose this ?
YX : That day I saw some men cutting grasses at the side of the road. I want to be like them too.

Next day.....

Ambition 2
YX : When i grew up, I want to REPAIR LORRY & CARS
Me : *slap forehead* Boy, you should pick something where you can sit in the air-con room and enjoy working instead of these tough job.
YX : *smilling*

Another day ..... 

Ambition 3
YX : Mama, how about I work as a TRACTOR DRIVER ?
Me : *slap forehead & speechless *

Feeling amused by his ambitions, I told hubby on our way back home from work one day..... 

Ambition 4
Me : Eh, you know arr....your son told me he wanted to work as a grass cutter, bla bla bla.......
Hubby : *laugh* Boy, choose something which you can earn big $$$, comfortable office, can travel here and there and bla bla bla....
YX : Just like a doctor ?
Me & Hubby : YA .... that's a good one.
YX : I think I want to CHOP TREES ...
HUBBY : THERE GOES MY EARLY RETIREMENT PLANS !!!! 


* All the above ambitions really mentioned by YX himself. I was rather SURPRISED actually *

  1. You be surprise may be one day your son will be the biggest truck driver in Malaysia, Asia, and even the whole world.... with thousand of trucks under his charge..and not forgetting that your son will have also the biggest workshop of car repair and lorry repair and lastly he will also have the biggest company in the whole wide world producing glass cutters,,,,amen to that..

    you know, it is also nice to see children dreaming and talking about all their dreams but sadly sometimes parents kill those dreams of their....

    I was teaching you boy in a children church when i asked him what he wanted to be when he grew up, he said he wanted to be a barber,his mom was there, said no no no ,Bryan you need to be a doctor like papa, or a accountant like who and who....then i asked him why he wanted to be a barber,here was his answer....

    he said,if he were to be a barber, he can tell his clients about Jesus when he cuts their hair,,,,,nice one....

Better than he told you Mom I dun wanna work :). I wish my gal can be a dentist, so my dental fee can be FOC. My boy to be a plastic surgeon, help me laser and lift up my face LOL.

  8. LOL!!! Reminds me of this story an elderly Australian lady told me. She used to get a guy from China to come over to clean her house...and he was very good, so she recommended him to some of his friends and they liked him too...and introduced more customers to him. In the end, he had too many houses to clean so he got some people to come over from China to do the work...and the business grew and grew. Now he's the big boss of a very big and successful cleaning agency in Melbourne.
