On the Facebooking Mum

Mum complained that sometimes when she stares at the computer screen too long she'll feel dizzy, so she was asking if it's useful to get a screen or something. But I thought with LCD screen it'd be much less painful as compared to a conventional monitor.

But then Sis added in that now since the brother is away and no one else at home using the desktop in the living room, mum's up early in the morning to Skype with the brother in Prague and check on her Facebook.

More often than not, in the conversation with sis, she'd say, "Your brother got upload new photos on Facebook dy! Go see go see!"

And I looked at my sis with eyes wide open. Astonished. Mum. Facebooking? Mum. Who didn't know how to switched on the desktop one year ago. Now Facebooking?? Mum. Who was computer illiterate. Now logs onto Facebook more often than I do?

"Yalar! You think I'm so outdated one ah? I also can study one!" Mum protested.

I looked at her, eyes wide open. Speechless. XD

And yes, she's in her 50s.
