“Aussie, Intan and me are close friends. Aussie and me are mothers of our own children. And when Intan was pregnant, we feel happy for her too. However, Intan who was pregnant seems to have her own opinions, she didn’t heed our advice on how to take care of herself , and instead of that, she liked to eat instant noodles (Maggie Mi brand- curry flavor) almost everyday in a week, and then, loved to eat heaty deep fried food example pisang goreng, and cempedak goreng . She ate these food without her husband knowing at all (her husband disallowed her to eat) . This had led her to sore throat and body heatiness. Both Aussie and me disagreed with what Intan did, but couldn’t advise much, as Intan won’t listen.
Anyway, Intan finally gave birth. She tried the natural way, but after a torture of pain close to 24 hours, she was pushed to the operation theater. Aussie and me happy to know her baby’s arrival, and hence we planned to buy Intan’s baby a nice present. Some of our friends wanted to have a share of the gift too, but knowing their contribution was around RM20+ per person, Aussie and I bought our own present. We had got her a branded baby chair close to nearly RM 200, knowing that Intan is a person very particular with product brand.
Soon, the shop sent the gift to Intan’s house. When Intan saw the baby chair, she phoned to Aussie, with an unhappy and anger tone, Intan “lectured” Aussie, and asked why we bought a present for her? Instead of a THANK YOU, Aussie was scolded. Intan even said she had a baby chair already (but it was a hand-me-down by her relatives). Aussie never expect such reaction from Intan, and she also told Intan that some other friends would buy her gifts too. And this news made Intan angrier.
Immediately after Intan called Aussie, she called me too. Same case, I was “lectured” by Intan. In my heart, how could she did that, instead of appreciation, she even sort of “blamed” us for the present. Moreover, Intan started to call the other friends, telling them DO NOT BUY HER PRESENT. She wants ANGPOW, CASH VOUCHER, or at least diapers. And, if cash voucher, it should be Jusco cash voucher, since Intan only go to Jusco to buy things, even PArkson voucher also cannot, and if want to buy diaper, must buy Mammy Poko, M size, other brands, other size also cannot!
The friend who received her calls came to Aussie and me for complaints. They felt Intan was too much! How could she expect tokens according to her expectation? To obeyed Intan enquiry, all of them bought her these !
|MamyPoko Diapers 'M' size !|
Even after few days of the gift receipt , Intan still sms to Aussie, “blaming” her why we bought her the baby chair, as she already had one at home!! Well, we suspect Intan is in short with cash, hospital may charge her double for natural and ceaserean, then she bought too many “expensive” baby products before the baby was born. But that doesn’t mean she can expect CASH from FRIENDS…!”
