When your father is an accountant, making withdrawals from the Bank of Dad is never easy.

My kid sisters would agree. Observe.

  1. Keep my worktable, bed and bookshelf neat and tidy.  EVERYDAY!!
  2. Dascha to be fed between between 6.30 to 7pm, bathed on Sat (unless raining), ears cleaned after bath and claws clipped.
  3. Help Mummy when she is ironing clothes


  1. Keep my Daddy’s worktable and my bookshelf neat and tidy. EVERYDAY!!
  2. Dascha’s water bowl (upstairs and downstairs) to be constantly filled with fresh water
  3. Help Mummy when she is washing her car.

 New pocket money – LL RM80 and NL RM40.

Deduction if (1.) is not done per nightly inspection –LL RM1.00 and NL RM0.50.

It’s a good job I live in a different country!

    “…so that I will not starve in future like a certain someone we all know and love”

    That certain someone being you, I imagine?

    If either of your sisters intend on becoming lawyers one day, they can argue with the Bank of Dad that the contract does not stipulate the definition of ‘neat and tidy’.

    Haha, take the evil Bank to court! Haha!

      Haha I think he has nightmares about having to depend on them for money in the future. Imagine the hoops they’ll make him jump through before sending him funds!

    Ah…I really love your mom & dad’s humour!

    Seems like your dad intentionally brought up kids to be home maids. Very very conniving, smart and thrifty!

    Thanks for commenting on my blog! My dad is also an accountant. I feel your pain.
