Asna woke me up in the morning to show off her baju kurung. She was about to go beraya and she requested that I make her up. If Asna wants something, she usually says it indirectly.
“Hmm I’d be so pretty if I wore make up”
Meaning, “Cikyong, please make me up”.
So I took out my humble cosmetics case, let her wear my new super moisturizing lipstick and applying lip gloss after. I used to treat her face like canvas when she was still a few years young – at three years old she had requested that I dab some high gloss lipgloss on her lips many times before she went out, but up to a point (the point where she let me make her up, I made her look like Heath Ledger Joker and she freaked out, looking into the mirror), she started to resist and wear some for occasions.
Suddenly she’s starting to show some interest again – this time specifically asking what are lipsticks and lipglosses for. I then dabbed light eyeshadows.
By the time I was done – well, it took two minutes probably – she was glowing. I told her she looked beautiful. Her nose was flaring and she couldn’t stop smiling.
Quite a nice feeling.
She went toward my rattan chair and sat. Posing, to be exact.
“Cikyong when I’m so beautiful, you have to take a picture”
I took my camera out and by the time I removed the lens cap:
“You must put on Facebook, okay?”
Today I also learned that a little boy had developed a crush on Asna (from a brief meeting between the two) and claims that she is his girlfriend. Asna, on the other hand, claims that she has broken up with D******, had two boyfriends a few weeks ago and today said, “No boyfriends for me”.
Suka hati korang lah.
