Living with Filth

Last night chris n i were stoning on the couch after dinner and channel surfed a little. TV programmes generally sucked but there was one that caught our attention, not because it was interesting but because it was absolutely DIS-GUS-TING!!! =P can't remember what it's called but the host is kim ng (zhong qin) and she goes around to the filthiest home to surface the filth, chaos, dirt, stench etc etc... i have watched a similar english programme called "How Clean Is Your Home" with two matronly ladies who go around wearing their white uniforms and pink gloves scrubbing, disinfecting, vacuuming, wiping people's houses. that one's really gross too...

yesterday's episode got us 0.0

we simply could not believe what we saw... *roll eyeballs*

it's a family of ah ma, mum and a few daughters...
first when kim entered, she almost got killed by some stuff they placed hanging somewhere... totally disorganised... she noticed the floor is filthy...

kim: wa! your floor is sooooo dirty! who is supposed to sweep???
mother: no one...
kim: *stunned* ha???? no one? how can?
mother: every morning we just use our feet to sweep sweep a bit...
kim: *stunned* USE FEET???? how??????

next she opened their shoe cabinet and the shoes... *roll eyeballs* were just anyhow-ly shoved in and there were two pairs of socks in there, with the shoes...

kim: wa! the socks... how long have they been in here?
daughter: erm... 1-2 YEARS
chris n i: 0.0
kim: how come you put your TV on the shoe cabinet???
mother: erm... too many cabinet will have lizards...
kim: ha??? why will have lizards???
mother: don't know... when we open the door, the lizard will run out
kim: -_______-|||

then the clothes hanging on some bamboo sticks which they balanced on something in the living room fell and all the clothes dropped to the floor

kim was so stunned... she tried to sit on the couch... but found some debris on the crevices (between two cushions) with a black hairpin sticking out

kim: wa! secret weapon! can hurt people nei!

yeah lor, imagine you don't know sit on it WA! your butt will kerpiak! LOL

then she found a floor mat to the entrance of the kitchen coated with dust, hair and dirt...

kim: *picked up mat with fingers* AIYAH!!!! TSK TSK TSK!!!! how long never wash already this one???
mother: ya, never washed before...
chris n i: 0.0

the grossest is the kitchen. kim felt a stench when she walked in... the condiments for cooking were placed all over, some on the floor some on a rack. one wall was decorated with ants. there were flies and mosquitoes everywhere. kim described it as a PEST HAVEN. the part below the sink was damp and infested w mildewand their tools (hammer, spanner etc) were virtually ROTTING in rust... hua kao...

kim: why no kitchen cabinets???
mother: we removed them cos got lizards
kim: u know the lizard... the problem is not the cabinet!!!!! it's your house is so filthy it's got so many insects that's why lizards like to come!!! u know??!
mother: *speechless*

the sink was dirty... plates and cups unwashed... with ants even. the daughter would rather use disposable cups -.-

then kim saw the daughter eating a bowl of PLAIN rice in one corner of the kitchen...

kim: why u eat plain rice??? mother mother, why your daughter eat plain rice?? no other food for her?
mother: got. got chicken *showed kim a WHOLE steamed chicken*
kim: ah yo! u never chop it up how to eat????
mother: cos my mother didn't chop it up...
kim: then u chop la!
mother: i don't know how...
kim: *pek cek look*

of course their task is to clean it up by a certain deadline which they tried to but failed cos the hairpin in the couch was still there -.- and there were still ants on the floor, dirt on the floor etc....

i think the mum totally doesn't know how to do housework and no one in the house cares... day in day out they just live in the filthy house... *stunned* i mean... my house is not TOTALLY ABSOLUTELY clean but at least we try to keep it moderately clean by cleaning up every week... vacuum, change bedsheets, do laundry, wash toilet and toilet bowls etc etc... keep things away. we cannot imagine how people can CHOOSE to live with filth.... so gross

west n claire will REFUSE to use their toilets if they're dirty. we have to clean them at least every other day. otherwise (especially west) they'd move the toilet away, pee on the floor and move the toilet back so the pee is between the litter box and floor but they'd make sure we can see part of the pee... so smart... and if they feel the floor is dirty, they'd PURPOSELY mess up by throwing the hay around, kicking the pellets out and spreading it all over, shitting all around or WORST peeing ON THE FLOOR. that's their way of saying "please clean up room". every time after we vacuum steam their enclosure, clean the toilets, give them clean water, fresh hay and pellets, they'd go back in and totally nuah on the floor. haha... so cute.
