Featured Blogger for the month of October


Hi there, I’m The Rockstar Groupie. (He prefers “Mum”.) I went from Crazy About Work to Crazy About Him – except it took me 2 years. From a former life in various bank dealing rooms, poring over investment product termsheets, relishing the high-speed buzz of equity derivatives pricing and execution in the Hong Kong stock market, having boyfriend-girlfriend husband-wife fights on the Bloomberg with all personal conversations at work taped or transcripted, I looked up one day.

OMG – Five Minutes Ago, Did I Push Out A Two-year-old?

I don’t want to miss any more. I blink again, and the Rockstar’s leaving home for college. Or getting married <shudder>. Here’s my diary, between blinks. And in case he got the crazy idea parents have it easy.

Here’s the story so far:

A long time ago, I used to look like this. If this picture were not black and white, my fringe would be red.

7 years ago, after getting engaged less than 6 months from our first meeting in Bar None, Singapore, I married the Kings.

And Elvis walked me down the aisle. He is not dead. He did our wedding at The Little White Chapel, Las Vegas before going on tour in Taiwan. USD 700 gets you a Cadillac and Limo rental, a dozen wedding photos in an album – and Elvis brings his own CD player for music accompaniment. My grandmother was very impressed when she saw our wedding DVD.

Btw, it’s the same Little White Chapel where Britney Spears was married – for 2 days. Fingers crossed, we’re doing a little bit better than that. Though Kings and I can’t agree (or remember) a particular anniversary date and so have never celebrated anniversaries. But surely I don’t need a reason to buy my own diamonds, I don’t say anything about Kings’ umpteen gadgets. Still, he had me promise never to get myself anything that competes with his diamond engagement ring. I on the other hand, don’t mind him topping my giant widescreen tv. And there you thought women were the emotional ones when it came to gift giving.

This is us joyriding in the Limo, while passersby yell things like It’s Elvis! and They Just Got Married! Our witnesses were two New Yorkers we pulled off the street. They were thinking of getting married too, you see. (Seriously though, Elvis is fun, but it’s a real pastor who marries the two of you, and – be warned – the marriage is Legally Binding.)

Kings and I are pole opposites in all the things that don’t matter (to us, anyway). We don’t like the same tv shows or music. Half the time we communicate better on Bloomberg/ email/ text message. When we were both busy at work, we hung up on each other often when the market was moving. Now I don’t work, Kings doesn’t get to hang up on me. So I rarely call him at work.

We agree on one thing:

Marriage takes work, and both sides. We’re a team. That includes at home. (But uh, still no anniversary celebration.)

Soon, we bought our first child for SGD 1,200.

She grew up.

To be the biggest over-achiever in the family.

(Yes we know dogs can swim. But the jacket makes it easier to haul her back in the boat.)

Then I got knocked up:

At some point I also thought it would be a good idea to jump out a plane after having the baby. (Like having the baby wasn’t enough.) It wasn’t too hard – I don’t fear heights that much – but I do fear enclosed spaces and crowds (I know, I live in Hong Kong, how funny is that?) and found sitting in the tiny plane packed like a sardine much worse than jumping out of it.

But I will never skydive again.

The night before I did it, I slept well. (And I’m not normally a good sleeper.) Kings didn’t. And you have to understand normally he can really sleep. I’ve accused him of Selective Narcolepsy – he literally used to climb into bed and fall asleep during our earlier fights. And he’d be really asleep. I know, because I kicked him once.

Terrified of heights, Kings spent the night researching the skydive company we were using in particular, and accident rates in general. Waiting for me to land safely with the parachute was one of the hardest things for him, as he kept baby Rockstar busy on the base. But he didn’t tell me til we were headed home. Because he knew it was important to me. Now I know, I can never do it again.

That pretty much sums up what we’re like with each other. And now we have Rockstar.

There’ve been proud cheesie Mini-Me moments…

And zzz-fest moments…

Freakish moments… (That is a CHEESE BREADSTICK <defensive>)

And times when the baby reminds you you’re a miserable, miserable person for not being able to stop him from crying. (Even as the dog paws at you frantically to make it stop, make… it…. stop! before hiding - coward.)

(But really, the dog does her part – and then some. See?)

That’s our game of Life. (No, really – the Life board game is from Toys R Us).

Oh, and I leave notes for the Rockstar to read as he grows too. Like so: http://raisingrockstar.com/2011/07/31/dear-rockstar-a-first-letter-from-a-future-mum-in-law/

Because we show our true colors by the choices we make in raising our rockstars.
