As the designated driver of the family, I drove my mom to my aunt's place for an evening soiree yesterday, where another aunt was awaiting.
They are not blood sisters, these three ladies.. but gee..what is the term called? These aunts are my father's brothers' wives. Ah...so they are my Mom's sisters in law. Correct?
Despite the norm of having disputes amongst other SILs, these three somehow maintain their dignity and are able to like each other.
Everytime they gather, mirth laughter is sure to be heard. And tales of the olden days are sure to be retold.
Once upon a time, all three families (plus another villain aunt) stayed under one roof under the watchful eyes of the matriarchal Empress Dowager (my grandma). The things that happened in the bungalow can easily be scripted for a TVB series. We have the villains, the useless, the poor but kind hearted characters - a winning formula for a drama series.
While listening to their reminiscing of the past, I thought the cast of actors and actresses for the next Series of the Year.
Grandmother - Lee Hiong Kum as Empress Dowager
Grandfather - Cheh Yin as Emperor (who smokes candu and gets his money conned all the time)
My mother - Chermaine Seah as the poor Daugher In Law who scrubs toilets
My aunts - Tavia Yeung & Ada Choy as Chermaine's chums
My aunt - Kate Tsui as THE VILLAIN
So imagine this..
Kate Tsui being the last prince's wife was the most favoured daughter in law. Right before the demise of the evil empress, pure solid gold necklaces, rings, bracelets were passed on to her.
Meanwhile my mother (played by Chermaine) and the other two DILs were only given 3 inches each, which was chopped off from a long golden belt which belonged to the Emperor.
And Kate Tsui, menacingly said, "Gee, I wonder why "tai-hau' let me....ME...and not you, ladies have all these jewelleries. Buahaha."
*Kate Tsui laughs a sinister laugh. Her hands on her belly, her shoulders shaking while her monstrous red eyes glisten * (she will definately bag the Best Actress award)
Meanwhile, Chermaine could only cry abit and think how foolish of her to have massaged the empress's feet for years and gained nothing but a stupid 3 inches gold chain.
*Chermaine holds a silk hanky and dabs her teary eyes - a precarious posture*
C'mon..don't you think the script is destined for for a Best Drama Series?
I have never liked my aunt - the villain much. Hearing these stories from my mom and aunts yesterday really made me wanna revenge for my mom.........
This is the part you come in, Sinkar.
She has 4 daughters.
The way to make her suffer now is to have you as a Son in law.
What say you? Golden (not McDonald) nuggets await you....
