I started to have grey hair ever since high school. And of course the grey increase after I have Jojo and Mei Mei. Now, nearly 50% of my hair are grey...pretty shocking? So, sometimes...when I have to...I dyed my hair. Sometimes Mahogany..Sometimes Burgundy...Sometimes...Black.
The other day, I was busy washing the car at the car porch when ...
Mei Mei : Mommy! You have gold hair! *In very shocking tone*
Jojo : *Rushing to the scene* No lah...that is brown color!
Mei Mei : Half brown and half white! *Even more higher tone*
Jojo : *Pulling me to bend down so she can see better of my hair* Mom, your hair can 'change' color!
Me : *before the whole neighborhood come and see what my girls shouting about, I better explain so the they can 'calm' down.* No...Mommy have grey hair...Mommy dyed the grey hair with brown color...
Mei Mei : Why your hair turn grey?
Jojo : *tutoring Mei Mei again* Like plants loh....when the leaves get older... they turn yellowish and dropped dead...
Mei Mei : * Pulling my hand and dragged me to the gate..* Come, mommy... hurry..
Me : What you want to show me?
Mei Mei : Come and stand here...
Me : ???
Mei Mei : Here got a lot of sunshine. You stand here and wait...you hair will be better!
Me: ??? *Smilling and shaking my head*
Mei Mei : Jie Jie (Sister in Chinese) said you are like plants... you need sunshine...if not your hair will turn grey and YOU WILL dropped dead!
Well, I did stand there for few minutes...because Mei Mei insist me to. I dyed my hair the next day with henna... So far, the girls yet to discover my new hair color! REDDISH Brown!!! Well, not really as red as the model below...
