Sharon Au's Mum Rejects Tickets To Watch Her Play 'Cos She Would "Fall Asleep"; Would Rather Play Mahjong
You would think parents would want front row tickets to their children's performances right?
That's what ex-Mediacorp actress Sharon Au thought too until her mum gave her a cold hard 'no' when she invited the latter to watch Pompeii — the live cinema theatre piece the 47-year-old actress is performing in this weekend for the Singapore International Festival of Arts.
Yesterday (May 31), Sharon, who's been based in Paris since 2018, shared an funny dedication (or is it a complaint?) about her mum on Instagram.
"I love my mum. She supports everything I do. She sends me to rehearsals. She brings cut fruits to me at the Drama Centre because she knows I am watching my weight and too nervous to eat when I am performing," she wrote.
Sharon continued that her mum would also buy her Rochor beancurd every day because that's her favourite dessert.
"Maybe because when she was pregnant with me she ate nothing but beancurd," she added.
That's so sweet of Mama Au, right? Hence, Sharon thought her mum would want to support her in person when the play opens, which turned out to be not the case.
"But when I got her tickets to watch Pompeii, she said: “No thank you I will fall asleep all the best good luck"," lamented Sharon.
The actress then quipped that her mum "would rather stay home to watch Netflix Korean dramas or play mahjong" before urging her followers to get tickets to Pompeii since her "own mother is not coming".
Well, on the bright side, at least there's one more seat available for fans now?
