Shopping For A Pram

Recently I was so sick and feeling so weak, I was lying in bed almost everyday doing nothing after the medication. The only thing I could do was close my eyes and recall those old memories, when I was young, when my children were small and all things that happened during those good old days.

Time flies. My children are now grown up.



I remember very well once I went shopping with my elder son who was about 3 years old then, looking for a suitable pram for my new born baby. I brought the maid along thinking she would take care of my son while I do my shopping.
Suddenly I realized my son was not with the maid while she happily shopping with her two eyes, forgetting she was there for a very important mission.

I got panic, almost crying with all sort of funny thinking haunting and clouding my mind. The shopping complex was so crowded and I was wondering how to find my son in the sea of people.

I did not go to the information centre thinking it wouldn't help and even if they announced, a small boy would not know how to response to the announcement. I didn’t realize then that it could help alert the security and also I had under estimated my son’s capability. Luckily I have always told my son what to do if he is lost in a shopping complex, to either find a security guard or stand at a corner until I come.


Suddenly I saw my son standing in one corner as if he was waiting for me to fetch him. Oh! What a relief to see him!

I found the pram later but the choice were quite limited at the shopping complex.

Hope you get well soon. I guess it is better to educate kids what to do when they are lost rather than assuming it will never happen.

OMG! I can really imagine that frantic feeling! I've almost lost my girl in a mall before too, when she detoured and walked into a bakery instead of following behind me. I wanted to faint then!

That was a real panic situation for you ! Glad all was FINE after all. I lost my daughter in CK Tangs, S'pore many years ago. She decided to go down the escalator and suddenly we were in a panic. Those minutes seemed like ages. All's WELL, thank God!
