salam and gooood evening,
just short stories...
1. suddenly people noticed I'm malay.
I went to the kiosk inside the university few days ago to buy some stuffs.The cashier was sooo friendly and keep on chatting and asking this and that to the customers.
When it came to the guy who was queing infront of me,the amiable cashier asked,"where are u from?"
"Pardon.were u just saying korea?"
"waa..1st time stumbled across a korean here"
That korean guy just smiling and left the cashier..
Came my turn to pay.I thought I might being asked the same question as lot of people thought I wasn't malay.
"Ye bang,ni je ke barang?"
"Aa..ni je..(dalam hati:eh macam mana dia tahu aku melayu.Cis!!)
2.Was it wrong?
I was walking inside the campus alone when suddenly my classmate came and started chatting with me.Oh,btw my classmate is a girl.So,it's rude if u just walk away in the sense of trying to honour your modesty by not talking to any girls.
We started chatting about exams, eidul adha etc.Then,we passed by two sisters wearing 'tudung labuh' and they stared at me like "oh my gosh! that 'beard' guy is walking with a girl and bla bla.." as if I was committing big sins!(what's the big deal with the beard?)
(Oh I sometimes can read people.that's why I can interpret the way they looked at me).
The question is,was I doing the wrong thing?I just trying to be professionalism.No gender bias or discrimination to girls.In fact,it's totally rude if someone starts talking to you and you just move your ass,let she/he chatting alone.
Please correct me if I was doing the wrong thing.
