Feisty Zaria

Happy New Year to everyone.

Ever since we gave Zaria the barista title, she makes coffee or tea for me daily.

Yesterday after breakfast, I asked her for my cup of coffee as usual. Zaria said later. And repeated her ‘later’ for the next 1hr and eventually did not bother to even reply when I asked about my coffee.

I lost my patience and went downstairs, to see her lying on the sofa reading.
Me : From 9 till 10:30 I asked for my coffee, and you kept saying later, and then didn’t even answer me any more! Today is my 1st day of work, you are still on holidays, and you can’t even make your mom a cup of coffee? Do you have anything to say?
Zara : Sorry ma, what do you want ma? Do you want me to make a cup of coffee or tea for you?
Zaria : ….
Me : Ok. For lunch, I’m not cooking for you, and Auntie (our helper) cannot cook for you too. You go and figure out what to eat. There’s lots of cereals and milk.
So I made my own coffee, and thinking Zaria will come over to apologise; but instead, she went to our helper and asked, “Auntie, do we still have mee sedap?”
o.O”

At 12pm, she boiled a pot of water herself, cut opened a pack of mee sedap, and made herself lunch!!
o.O”

While I was eating roast chicken sandwich, and fried button mushroom with Zara at the same table with her, I asked “You can have some if you say something to me.”
Slurping her noodle, she said, “Even if I say sorry, I don’t really mean it, so what’s the point of saying it.”
o.O”

That’s my 8 year old alright, feisty, independent, non-complying.
