A few of mother's friend came for a visit. They knew that mother had gone for a two weeks stay at her son's place in KL and a few days trip to Thailand. Mother will tell them about her holiday experiences and they will in turn tell mother about their past holiday experiences. It's like they do not want to be outdo by others when sharing about their holiday experiences. Some of them have been to Thailand too.
I think mother has yet to go to Singapore or Indonesia. Some of her friends have their children staying or working in these countries and they will "brag" about the places there. Maybe if mother goes for Mexico Vacations, they would not have much chance to brag but would just listen to mother. Maybe I will follow along and enjoy myself there too.
