Getting better 有进步了

It was about 6:30 pm.

"Sir, do you have flour?" My new maid Agnes asking me.

"Flour..? for frying chicken drumsticks?"

“yes sir".

Actually Agnes decided to venture into frying chicken drumsticks which I found in the freezer yesterday.

I asked her :"Can you fry chicken?"

"yes"

"So tomorrow we shall have fried chicken drumsticks for dinner".

She asked me when she was about to cook ...... where was the flour.... my wife used to make bread, there must be some flour somewhere. But where? after searching low and high... no flour in sign.

The fastest way was to ask my wife. Immediately sent an SMS to Mei Mei in UK. " call me if can".

Phone rang.

"Hello"

"Mei, is mommy with you? where are you now?"

" We are in the train for London."

Alamak.... they were leaving Aberdeen for London. My wife is flying off from London on Saturday. The train was a bit noisy... and If I asked my wife where is the flour, other passengers may overheard .... what a cartoon!

"Then never mind lah... nothing much...just to ask mommy something.... It is OK" I hanged up.

I quickly drove out to buy a packet from the convenient store.

So, a big improvement ....Filipino fried chicken for dinner tonight!


已经是傍晚六点半了。

“主人,有面粉吗?”我的新菲佣依旎斯问我。

“要用了炸鸡腿吗?”

“是的”。

哎呀,要煮了才问我面粉。太太常常有做面包,家里一定有面粉的。但在那里呢?找上找下,找了一番,没有见到面粉。

现在就要煮了,最快的途径就是大电话问太太。马上传了一则短讯给小女儿:“假如可以,马上打电话给我。”

电话很快就响了。

“哈罗”

“妹,妈咪和你在一起吗?你们现在在哪里?”

“我们正在去伦敦的火车上。。“。哦,原来他们正从阿尔巴丁坐火车去伦敦。(太太将在星期六从伦敦起飞回家)。

火车上很吵,假如问太太面粉放在那里,一定会给其他乘客笑死了。

“那不要紧了,我只是想问一些东西,不需要了,没问题。。拜。”。

放下电话,记起便利店有卖,马上驾车到邻近的便利店买了一包面粉。

有进步了,今晚我们的晚餐是 。。。。 菲律宾炸鸡!

您比女婿幸褔很多..
當我不在時,他得扛起奶爸、傭人、煮夫、車伕、伴讀、“玩具”... ...的角色!當我回家時,兩父女笑着迎接,看似平靜。其實是“面目全非”,要花好多時間“拾手尾”!家裡也會冒出很多新添加的東西,像您一樣啊~“沒用腦”找先,就驾车往外買!“面粉肯定在廚房,難道在床底???
