Was there ever a moment when you were a kid and you’d see your parents doing certain things that made you wonder, ‘”why???” Now that we’re grown, we’d sometimes catch ourselves doing the same things and realise “OMG, now I get it!” To show you that this is a super common experience, we’ve spoken to a few Malaysians and got them to share the times they finally realised that they’re slowly turning into their parents!


1. “My friend lost my nice food container and I finally understood my mum’s rage.”

One of the superpowers of our Asian mums is their ability to keep track of every single one of their food containers. And there is no worse nightmare than losing them!

“Once, I packed some food for my classmate but she never returned the container. When I asked for it back, she said she had thrown it away. I could feel my mum’s spirit possessing me and it took every cell in my body not to scream at her.” – Vivian, 27.



2. “I get more excited about buying a new air-cond than replacing my phone.”

“After getting my own place, I realised just how important it is to get nice home appliances and I’ve been spending most of my savings on household things. No wonder my parents used to be super excited when they got a new oven or a new air-cond.” – Hadi, 33.

When you’re in this stage of life, it’s the little joys that truly count!


3. “My friend invited me to lepak and I almost didn’t go because I was too lazy.”

“I haven’t seen my friends in ages because of the MCO but when they ajak me to lepak, I felt like I’d rather stay at home and relax. Now I understand why our parents couldn’t be bothered to bring us out on weekends.” – Anne, 24.

We can totally relate! With all the stress of working, it’s important to value what little me-time we have.


4. “Sometimes I’d start yelling at the TV when watching the news.”

“As a child, I never understood why my dad would yell at the TV when watching the news. I even wondered, “does he not know those people on the TV can’t hear him?” Now that I’m old enough to actually digest what’s on the news, I can totally relate!” – Saifuddin, 29.

After the whirlwind of a year that we’ve had, we don’t blame you!


5. “My weekend routine consists of house chores or grocery shopping and I ENJOY IT!”

“My job keeps me pretty busy on weekdays so I use my weekends to settle household chores. I always dread running errands but as I grew older, I found them pretty fun! That’s when I realised I’ve reached my peak adulting moment.” – Mira, 31.

As long as it sparks joy within you, then why not enjoy it? Plus, it’s definitely a very productive way of spending your time!


6. “I freaked out when my niece forgot to turn off the air-cond in the living room.”

“My mum would nag my siblings and me whenever we forgot to turn off electric appliances. I thought she was just being dramatic. But now that I have bills to pay, I’ve realised just how expensive electricity is! I owe my mum a huge apology…” – Lee, 25.

Ever since we started spending a lot more time at home, a lot of us have learnt to become more ‘economical’ in order not to waste so much electricity. Another way to avoid wasting electricity is by making sure your household appliances, like your air-cond, are being regularly serviced.

In case you’re unaware, your air-cond should be serviced at least twice a year in order to ensure its optimum condition and it can also serve several benefits such as:

  • Regulating the power consumption in order not to waste electricity.
  • Providing better air quality that is not clogged with bacteria/dust.
  • Ensuring a longer operational life of the AC.

And speaking of servicing your AC, we’ve also heard of a really good deal that’s going on right now!

From 1 – 30 November 2021, Acson is giving away a FREE Acson USB Table Fan to the first 100 users who order their air-cond cleaning service through the MY Acson mobile app!
