Funny family

My uncle Tharuwat is a funny character, he’s always had this humorous way of looking at life, the universe, and everything.

One of my favourite quotes from Uncle Tharuwat was many years ago, when I was complaining about being short, and he said to me ‘Why do you want to be tall? When you’re short people look down at you and say “Oh, how cute, you’re so little”. When you’re tall people look at you scared and shout “Run there’s a giant!”‘

If you meet his daughter, my cousin Meleng, you’ll see that she too has been successfully raised with the funny goggles on, as demonstrated in an outing to the supermarket the other day in the company of my grandmother, cousin Liyana, Aunty Lily, her baby girl Ezzuryne, and Aunty Mary (Melengs mother). After a cruisy day of food and supermarket shopping, as we all piled into the car out of the hot sun, Meleng looked at us sharply from the front passengers seat and said in a tone which I considered quite calm ‘Hey, have you forgotten something? My daughter is still outside!’.

Surprised, we all turned to see a tiny 5 year-old Ezzuryne, sitting near the driver’s side of the car, waiting patiently in the baby seat of the supermarket trolley. Outside of the car

In a response that would have shocked most families, we all burst out laughing – including Meleng. My Aunty Mary, who had been in charge of the trolley, and Ezzuryne, gracefully and quickly rejoined her grand-daughter with the rest of the women sitting comfortably in the car. (Oops, no biggie..)

I have to say, no matter what I do with this side of my family, even when it’s just boring old supermarket shopping, it always leaves me with a smile on my face.
