It is said that parents are angels put on earth to nurture the children of the world. Okay, we don’t know if someone actually said this but you cannot deny that our parents are basically walking angels. They’re the first people we rely on for well, everything! Being a parent is no easy feat; but eventually, it’s time for us to spread our wings and make our own way into the world. However, there are just some things that parents will never stop worrying about even when we’re no longer considered ‘kids’ anymore.

 

1. Always asking us if we have enough money

They always seem to have a sixth sense when we’re running out of money and borderline considering what possessions we have that are worth selling. Sometimes – even without asking – they randomly send us money just as we’re about to spend the last of our cash.

 

2. Whether we’re eating right (or enough)

Even when we look completely healthy or fit, they would STILL say we look like we haven’t eaten for days! Heck, they would even say that if we’ve gained over 5kg! The bright side? They take us out to eat all the ‘ho liao‘ food at their expense (because they kesian us).

3. Being paranoid about our safety

Whether we’re travelling or driving or basically just walking out the front door, our parents are constantly thinking about whether we’re safe or not. They sometimes go into paranoia mode and start thinking of 2435876234958 ways we’re going to get hurt. Of course, this is also easily remedied by getting a good Takaful plan so they at least have the assurance that you’re well covered in the event of an unpredictable catastrophe  emergency.

 

4. When it’s already ‘late’ and we’re not home yet

Granted, the definition of ‘late’ is very different for us and our parents. Sometimes they even start calling at 9pm asking the usual questions:

‘Where are you?’   ‘Out’
‘Why still not home yet?’   ‘Coming home soon’
‘You know what time ah now?’  ‘Still early what’
‘No need to sleep ah?’  ‘Ma, pls…’

Usually but not limited to this order of interrogation questions.

 

5. The type of friends we hang out with (or if we have any friends at all)

Our peers are the biggest source of influence besides our parents, so most of us have been through that pain of how our parents would never trust who they are. That being said, having no friends at all also poses a great concern to them. What to do, forever alone Y_Y

 

6. Our love life in general

This is one ‘argument’ we kids will never win. When we were younger, we were told we’re too young to be in a relationship. “Focus on yourself, can always find love later”. Now that we’re older and actually taking their advice, they’re worried we’ll end up alone. Walao, make up your mind can?

Besides that, they’re also concerned about our choice of partners and will constantly question us about them until they’re sure we’ve picked the right person.

 

7. Wearing better clothes and looking presentable

“Can you wear nicer clothes ah? Later people think you homeless, parents abandoned you.”

This is really more about what people might say about them rather than us. Asian parenting 101! How we act and portray ourselves usually reflects on our parents more than us. It’s not homeless okay, it’s hipster.

 

8. Our general health and well-being

Are we taking care of ourselves? Do we have any problems in life or at work? Have we gone to see the doctor for that flu? At the end of the day, our parents just want to know that #KitaOK and can take care of ourselves without them. Basically, it’s time to put on those adulting pants (or skirt) and start making life OK for ourselves. A good way to start is by getting your health coverage in order with a good Takaful plan. Some plans are even customisable to suit your coverage needs and won’t prove to be much of a financial burden when you’re just starting out at your job. OK kan? So, how does getting a good coverage plan AND a chance to win some prizes sound to you?
