Living Alone for A Day

parfum leau fenix-yea right 

I thought I couldn’t I thought I couldn’t…

But I could.

I could survive alone in the house for a day.

How did I end up in this situation?

My maid has gone to Myanmar for a week, my brother is stuck in camp doing national service and dad had an all-important business meeting in Kuala Lumpur.

I thought I was going to starve to death because I don’t know how to cook a proper meal. I can’t even light the stove for god’s sake! Furthermore, I’m prone to panic attacks and dizziness so living alone is a big test on my sanity.

That evening, I was already filled with anxiety and trepidation that I decided to have fish head beehoon for dinner, a definite comfort food to calm the senses. I dragged my tired body all the way to the hawker centre after work and shit. The damn stall’s closed.

So I bought some shitty preserved veggie duck soup from the neighbouring stall and headed home. I was so braindead I pressed the doorbell only to remember that there’s NOBODY to open the stupid door. After grumbling and digging for the stupid keys to unlock the stupid door, I finally let myself in.

Of course nature called and I went to the loo to answer it. Just as I stepped out, the mat under my feet slid forwards and I executed a half gymnastic split onto the floor. I don’t know how many F**K’s issued out of my mouth but I was amazed I didn’t pull a muscle or dislodge a spinal disc.

That’s shit encounter One.

I dragged myself to the kitchen and tried to find the rice pot so I can burn some rice for dinner. F**k, where the f**k is the rice pot? I see the rice cooker but no pot to put rice and water in. Dizzy with hunger, I opened the fridge and voila, there’s the rice pot with alot of stale rice in it.

Ok, old rice has been chucked into the bin and now I gotta cook a fresh batch.

I crouched to the lower cupboard where the rice bin is and took out a cup of rice. Suddenly…

A f**king brown thing sprang from the bag in front of the bin!

It’s a f**king baby cockroach! It landed on its back and started to struggle.

Dry up and die you f**king shit, I said as my heart pounded against my chest.

That’s shit encounter Two.

Ping! The rice cooker announced 2 mins later that the rice is ready for consumption.

I opened the cover and slammed it shut. All I saw was rice grains still swimming in water.

F**k I can’t even cook rice!!!

That’s shit encounter Three.

I searched the fridge for food and found a plastic bag of leftover vegetable. No idea what they are cos as long as it’s green, it’s vegetable. I chucked the veggie onto a sizzling pan and covered it. It was one minute later when I smelled something burn.

I didn’t know vegetables can burn so easily.

I drowned the scorching veggies in sukiyaki sauce and cracked 2 eggs over the mess, praying that I won’t have to crunch on charcoal for dinner with half-cooked rice and shitty soup.

Finally the stupid rice cooker ping-ed once more and this time, the rice looked fit for consumption. I plopped the egg-sukiyaki sauce-veggies into a bowl and voila… my dinner.


For the rest of the night… I sat in front of my PC oebbsing.

The next morning, I headed for work…. … 1 hour later than usual. On the way to the station, a f**king mini car nearly ran me over. I nearly gave him the finger but I stopped my third finger from erecting itself as there’s a kid in the passenger seat.

That’s the last shit encounter.

What did I learn from living solo for a day?

  1. I can say the F-word so many times.
  2. I can cook…. maybe.
  3. If I marry, I need a husband who can be my personal chef and butler.
  4. That’s why my family thinks I should not marry but get a maid and a nurse instead.
  5. My grade for Home Economics should be F.

    I hope I was there to cook for you, though veggie and rice are the only thing I could cook. Usually I simply eat instant noodle+veggie+egg when I’m home alone…
