Adorable Ah Ma

We had Mothers' Day dinner at T3's Imperial treasures so Ah ma had to miss her favourite taiwanese drama series with theme song that goes, "I ask sky! i ask sky!..."

time: 6:53pm... ah ma sat quietly and looked a little uneasy...

FIL: you can watch channel 8 on your phone right?
me: ya... you want to watch?
FIL: your grandmother wants to watch her "love"!
me: oh, the i ask sky i ask sky show? ok...
FIL: that's why she is not talking... she misses the show...

so chris passes my phone to ah ma and once she got it, she was completely engrossed...


nothing could tear ah ma away from the screen... not scallops, fish maw, sea cucumber. here, you see ah ma holding her peking duck wrap with one hand while devouring the plot... peking duck can wait... plot cannot LOL


if you want to talk to her, sorry, wait for the commercials baby...

and the plot thickens... ah ma needs close-up view...



gwyneth: if my mum were here, she'd be sitting beside ah ma watching too...
me: ha? then when she goes overseas how?
gywn: miss lor!
me: but it wouldn't make a diff right? LOL
gywn: ya, 3 weeks later the plot is still at the same place HAHAHAHA
FIL: the plot is always the same! every once in a while they add in a new bad character... and then someone gets pregnant... haiz... always the same...

at about 8 pm, ah ma looked perplexed...

ah ma: *turns to gwyn's dad* zor ni oo gor mek kia? (why is there something on the screen?)
gwyn's dad: orh! ah ma! bor battery liu! (no battery already!)
gywn: ah ma toing gah bor battery! (ah ma watch until no battery!)

so funny... ah ma is like a kid... usually it's the kids who take their food from the table and sit in front of the TV to watch cartoon but here we have grandma totally hooked on this taiwanese drama...

hahaha...!
