Shocking family fact!?

All of the family members (and some of my friends too) have admitted that I'm a carbon copy
of my Mama!
I inherit my Papa's nose and many traits from him tho. XD

More than half of my Mama's side family members are overseas so that I know only some few of them.

But some days ago I discovered something pretty shocking bout it!

So during high school, I had one friend named Sylvia (disguised for safety haha) who were younger than me. She was cute and very thin but I was not too close to her.

That time, there was this wedding dinner from my Mama's side which we attended and I met Sylvia--I think? Everyone got to know that my eyesight is horrible so I didn't bother to check every face that I met there to confirm whether I know them or not, because I was pretty sure that I would most likely not know most people there; I don't know many people anyway.

Then when I was with my Ahma, she talked to me and said: You know this Sylvia right? She's from Stece (my Highschool) right? She's related with you, you know?

I was kind of surprised but it's a nice surprise: I didn't know! Ohhh I see I see *nod*

It was few years ago; probably 6 to 7 years ago.

Then around last week I had a call with my Mama and we talked bout Sylvia again; then my Mama said: "Sylvia is your aunty loh."

I was confused: "why?" I don't even understand why I asked why hahahaha.

She answered: "because, Sylvia's mama is Ahma's cousin, which means Sylvia is my great-cousin." *insert laugh here*

I was literally jaw-dropping myself that time

and laughed so hard.

Then I said to Mama: So Sylvia won't call you aunty, but she will call you Jiejie? And I call Sylvia aunty?

That's ridiculously fun!

So all of this time, I was studying with my aunty? I was graduating with my aunty? I know this happens elsewhere I just can't believe it happens to me as well--the gaps in my family's generation. It's kind of awesome and interesting!

Lots of love ♥

  2. wow, that's a shock indeed! someone in the same grade as you is your aunty ._.
