Last month, hubby and Bryan accompanied me to the hospital to pick up my health screening report. The doctor saw both of them at the lobby and informed me that they can come into his office too, as he has extra seats for “visitors”. I declined… coz Bryan will do nothing except interrupt me.
Anyway, one of the first question the doctor asked me when i went in is
Doc: So do you have a will?
Doc: Good, you will need it.
Me: (Apa ni? Say something like that) Errr…don’t everyone need it nowadays.
Doc: Yes, everyone needs it once they have kids. If there are no kids, it is not so critical. People cannot just assume that things will work out when they die. The only way to make sure that things will work out once you die is to have a will. Otherwise, how can you be sure that the money will go to the right place and the child’s welfare is taken care of, custody and all.
Me: (phew….. He meant this only hor. Tot i have health problem)
Actually what he said is true. Before I have kids, it doesn’t matter if I die. As long as my parents have a sum of money to help them through old age, it doesn’t matter where the rest goes. But with Bryan, it is now a different story.
Hubby and I have our will drawn up a few days before we went on our first holiday without Bryan. Although it was only a 2 day trip (local), we were (or I was) a little bit paranoid. We want to make sure things are in order before we left.
So we drew up a detailed will with a will-writing company. My financial consultant, who is a family friend helped me to draw it. According to him, ours is considered quite detailed liao. Definitely not a simple one. Hubby joked that if anyone sees our will, they will think that we are millionaire or something (which we are not, super very far from it in fact).
Eh..but i want to make sure i cover everything ma. It is not as if i am going to draw a new will every now and then.
So, do you have a will?
