NLK

I used to eat lunch with a fellow colleague. She works in accounts. During lunch time, she loves to talk about her husband. She would go.. "my husband is such a nice guy. He would do such nice things for me". Or "my husband is so funny. Yesterday he would .. bla bla.. , "my husband decides to change job..." and so on. It got so bad that I asked other people like Bahija or Emily or Anti Ringgit to join us for lunch so I don't have to suffer alone. Later, all of us gave her a nick name. We called her NLK, which stands for Ngor Lou Kung (My husband). Since then the nickname stuck. She doesn't know about this of course. As the days go by, I began to get bored of NLK and her incessant promotion of her husband. I began to avoid lunches by making up stupid excuses. And as times goes by, we see less and less of each other.

I began to wonder if this is a phenomeneom of the newly wed. Does the bride loves to talk abt their husbands just like some men like to talk…
