How to drill holes in wall

I know many fathers out there think it’s macho to be doing hardcore house job with their sons. The moment Darling found out he will be getting a son he can already visualize all the guy things that they can do together. Last weekend was the perfect example. I needed some holes to be drilled on my walls so as usual Darling will have to do it. This time around, the kaypoh Ethan wanted to be part of it and Darling gladly told him to help hold the paper up so the wall dust does not drop on the floor.

When I came out of the kitchen I saw this! OMG! Wall dust all over Ethan’s head! What in the world are these two boys thinking?! -.-

Ethan eventually gave up and said, “Daddy I dun wanna hold the paper anymore! So dusty!!!”

Mummy as usual is the *ehem* smarter one among us three. I took a post it note and stick it on the wall before taking Ethan away for a shower to get rid of all that dust!! >_<

There! Isn’t it much better now Darling?! Work SMART, not work HARD! :P

Daddies (and sons) out there, there are so many macho things you can do together but drilling is definitely not one of it lah!!!

      Choi Yen,

      Looking back at it now, yeah.. it’s kinda funny oso -.-

  • //

    the dust not heavy ah? the post-it note wun fall?

    • //


      For light drilling ok-lah. Don’t use this if you are drilling walls to pasang air-cond! Chunks of batu will drop so definitely the paper won’t be able to hold them lah :D

  • //

    Hahah…lol…there is another way i learn from the guy that install my aircond. But you need a helper. The helper will hold the running vacuum cleaner hose below the drill where u going to drill. It will sucks all the dust into the vacuum cleaner bag..very cool. Try that next time.

      JC, aiyo, very da leceh leh liddat. I malas to help him! Haha..

    Who says ladies are not smart? :)) So have you wonder what Father and Son will do next?

      Aiyo Claire, I dare not!!

  • //

    Hold vacum cleaner next time. Ethan’s head will not be so dangerously close to the drill…. Haha…

    • //

      Linda, the post-it-note will do lah.. :D

  • //

    hahaha poor Ethan whole head full of dust. Mommy so clever to use the post-it-note to hold the drill dust.

    • //

      Thank goodness we Mommies are born smart kan Vicky? :D

  • //

    Mummy isn’t only smart, but creative too. This is a good way to get rid of the dust. But, Ethan is so cute with grey hair.

    • //


      LoL.. now I can think it’s cute lah. When it first happened, NOT CUTE AT ALL LEH!! :)

  • //

    Hahahahaha….I normally get Ryan to hold the vacuum cleaner for me and he loves it. Of course, he will get distracted and start vacuuming something else…..so so so funny reading your post …

    • //

      Dasyat you Daddy. The sound of the drilling plus vacuum lagi. Double Dose!

    • //

      Seriously? I’ll let him mandi in the mud next time then :D

  • //

    OMG.. Poor boy.. :(
