This is a discussion on everyone's asking when i'm planning for a 2nd one!! within the Home Life, Relationships & Finance forum, part of the You and Your Family category; Originally Posted by pkshl like what ponsak said "$3 can buy a meal in singapore but $3 can buy a ...
actually i dont have to have more kids IN FUTURE if (only IF) the living expenses in SG is not so high... but then again, like what meiteoh said, it's not only the money issue haha...
Think most parents, in-law, relatives and friends will commonly ask these questions. So dont't be stress, else you have stepped into their trick. Just smile, ignore and walk away. Even you have 2nd baby immediately, the next question will be "When are you going to have third one...." NEVER ENDING!
When you are single, "Got BF/GF or not""
Not BF/GF, "When getting married?"
Married , "When are you having a baby?"
Got baby, "When is the next one?""
Got a baby girl, "Get a baby boy"
Got a baby boy, "Get a baby girl"
Eh I say something but hope dont't offend people ahh... Just meant to be a joke. I disclaimer first.
Next time at wedding, people ask you when you are next or at baby's full month people ask when you are next, then at funeral you go ask back the person when they are next... Sure will shut their trap forever.... Muahahaha... I'm evil.
i have been tolerating nonsense from my mother in law + mother in law's gang (her sisters) ALL commenting:
1) aiyooo time for no. 2
2) aiyoooz why dont want no. 2
3) aiyooozzzz why dont plan no. 2
4) ITS TIME~~
5) baber needs a sibling
6) baber so poor thing
7) baber no one to play with
8) baber very lonely deee
then horr recently i replied one sentence that makes all these frustrations to an ENDING
" noONE look after "
immediately, they keep quiet
coz mother in law dont want to be the ONE wahahhahahha~~~
ps: so far no one has EVER asked after that reply.........

off topic: i think most chinese would prefer small family but my malay colleague says she wants to have 4kids. my hubby has some malay reservist friends who have 5kids & the wife not working. whole family rely on the dad's income. [[*how they do it ?*]]
or iszit we chinese expectations too high?
so how no body wants 2nd one ?i am also like some old soh always asking pple to have babies..hahahha.friends not married also i tell them..never mind have baby first.
I have 3 already no body dare ask me .First with 2 boys they still ask "you try for girl "Then i think if boy then how..exchange with other pple is it?
Lucky girl..hehheh..so now pple say"wah can close shop already !"
But i still like babies ..dont mind another one but cant afford n health wise gynae say its too risky*sigh*
Mother to 2 princes and 1 little princess
that's human nature lahh.. qns one by one shoot shoot shoot.. LOL!
haha, just tell them, on the way on the way.
It's true, quality better than quantity!
My prob is that it's my husband who keeps askg me when we gonna have a second when, we just had our 1st in dec 09. I told him I dont't want to go thru childbirth again, he still keeps talkg about it, I dont't mind renting a womb though, if only the govt could legalize it here.
it just happens, human will be human. maybe they dont't know what to say. My 2 kids are spaced 3.5 years and i get this 'FAQ' so frequent before i had my boy - that i'm immune to it. Infact, after having a boy, now people will say the same line 'wah, can close shop already'. I didn't even ask for any comment.....lol
