story of the day
Vincent has the scruffy look again. Labels: stories
The last time I had the scruffy look was somewhere around this time last year when our Muslim friends were in their fasting month. This woman at the chap fan stall stared at me real hard before she served me. Only when I uttered a word of Cantonese did she reply back in Cantonese, "Oh I thought you were Malay." The woman at the McDonalds drive through also frowned at me before serving me.
Still, today's story beats the other two hands down.
I went to KFC for lunch. When it came to my turn and I stepped forward the cashier greeted me with the coldest greeting ever:
"Take away, ke?"Still not visibly pleased, she stared at me real hard before finally deciding it wasn't wise to lose a customer. As she served me, there was a little Malay kid at the next counter with his mum who was ordering food at the same time. Before I could grab my tray and take a seat, the kid looked up to me and asked, "Abang makan sini ke?" His mother dragged him off before I could reply, so I flashed him a smile.
"Dok, nak makang"
"Orang Melayu tidak dibenarkan makan di sini!"
"Tau, tapi aku owang Cina"
Every other person I know has told me to shave off the caveman goatee and do away with the Malay accent (and speak in broken Malay), but I think useful for getting me into hilarious in situations like this!
heheheh i think you just enjoy controversy ;) ah well, watever makes you happy
fadh: Yah, purposely. I told you. I thought it was funny.
I didn't say I was good looking. I SAID I was fucking awesome. Make what you wish out of that la.
You should have said, kenapa? KFC tak halal ke? That would be hilarious.
But you're right. It would have been fucking hilarious.
