Spring cleaning before the Chinese New Year, that's what I'm talking about. Washing and cleaning, vacumming all nooks and crany, more cleaning and washing and baking and cooking and well, you get what I mean.
It just dawned on to me this morning as I am mopping the floor. This spring cleaning business. Hmmmm, I have a very strong gut feeling now that it must have been a devious plan concocted by our ancestors, somewhere in ancient China, to have the children help with cleaning the whole house without them refusing and throwing a fit.
That's it! This must be it *insert evil laughter*
Parents of old must have gotten tired of asking their children to help with housework that they all gather and came out with this "idea" to make the children clean the house thoroughly at least once a year...HAHA.
Aren't parents smart?
I told my mum what I thought and her reply was a simple, '' Ya-lah*, you mean it took you so long to realize this? "
Have a great reunion dinner everyone :D
footnote = * lah is a Malaysian slang
