has anyone told you that you look older than your age?or maybe someone had called you 'pakcik/makcik'? well....i've gone through these situation quite a number of times. these are the list of 'the unfortuinate events' for me....haha...
1) when i was in form 5, a form 1 student asked a friend of mine (dia pun form 5 gak tp suka lepak ngan bbdk form 1)...
"abg fir, abg faiz tu tingkatan 6 ek?" that boy asked him.
"eh, sekolah kite mane ade bdk tingkatan 6." he explain.
then the boy asked again, "so dia repeat SPM la yek?"
sungguh baik kata-katamu itu wahai budak... down.....
2) it happens during the semester vacation on november 2008. i was working at Hotel Seri Malaysia Bagan Lalang to earn some money to fund for my nikon D80. this is the conversation with a colleague on my first day there.
"sebelum ni ko kerja kat mana?" she asked.
"saya x kerja, masih blaja lg, kat UIA," i told her.
"berape umur ko?" she asked sambil wat muka hairan.
"22," i replied.
"ooo...ingatkan 30. nampak matang. ye la kan, blaja tinggi2 tu yg wat nampak matang tu." she said.
blaja tinggi2 wat aku nampak matang. what the heck....hampeh btul...
3) one day when i was doing my intership, i went to a bank to deposit the cheque of my internship allowance. on the way to the bank, i walked pass two school girls (13-15 years old i think) who were asking for donation.
"derma utk anak yatim, pakcik..."
PAKCIK? i'm not even 10 years older than you are.
4) the latest one happens last week. i was riding a KTM commuter train to midvalley. a guy who sat next to me was trying to start a conversation.
"nama sape?" he asked.
"faiz," i answered and then he introduced himself, telling that he live in seremban but work in KL...blablabla...
"umur awak?" he asked. and i know what will happen next.
"oktober ni msk 23," i replied and he responded ,"ooo...ingatkan 25. sy pun nampak tua. awak rase umur sy brape?"
i dont really care about that but to be nice, i have to answer lah...."29?"
"27," he replied. then the train arrived at the midvalley station.
