"Mama, we are running out of shampoo... " I would hear this like every 2-3 weeks.
"So fast you people use the shampoo?? How you people use it ahh??! You makan kah?"
Ha haa... Well, what to do?? They all have long hair (and a lot!), need care and money! When I was sixteen, I didn't have their kind of luxuries. Yup, I had to wash my hair using soap. I know... my hair was long but macam dawai!
seri & hani
I had to think of something. They have to learn to be more prudent... how to teach these girls?? Then I got a brilliant idea and it is hilarious! To me, at least.
I said to them, "Mama is gonna get each one of you a bottle of shampoo of your own and we are gonna have a race. I'd like to see who finishes her bottle of shampoo the fastest!" 6 pairs (where got 6!!?? 3 pairs lah!!) of eyes widened in horror and shock and they all laughed hysterically. I added, "Only then we know who has been using the shampoo the most and the 'culprit' behind the 'shampoo-eating'."
Oh my god! I couldn't help it, when I went shopping to buy my girls their shampoos, I couldn't stop giggling. I got home and they didn't think I was being serious about buying each of them a bottle until I handed each of them a bottle.
Seri has the longest hair, almost down to her waist already but Ayu has the thickest, I think. Hani's hair is black & thick and she sweats a lot. I notice they all wash their hair everyday, how can they not? Hani & Seri goes to school and when they come back home, the hair is oily and scalps are itchy.
The 'race' is still on and whenever I see their bottles of shampoo in the washroom, I just can't help but giggle... :))
Hmm... should I give a prize to the winner?? Maybe I should. A bottle of 10 litre shampoo!!? Hee heeh heee. There you go, that would last you a whole year sayang!
each with a name on it :))
ayu with her Ibanez and rocking hair! :))
