short stories

some people think i look chinese.

like the hawker that day who started speaking to me in mandrin. luckily understand, just cannot answer other than nodding my head.


some people think i don't look chinese.

like the taxi driver that started talking about how the chinese monopolized the durian business. before, they sold durians by the fruit. now, because of the chinese, they sell durians by the kilogram.


i can be so forgetful. today. my medical certificate was slipped inside my licence. i took the medical out and put it in my shirt pocket cause i needed to photocopy the licence.

then i misplaced my licence. started looking high and low for it. finally found it.

then got frantically panic, thinking my medical certificate had slipped out my licence, and fallen somewhere. many many frantic minutes later only had i realized i foolishly put it in my pocket for safe keeping.

-its been 5 months-

I've gotten Malay, Chindian, Serani, Mexican... and i'm not even mixed. Unlike you.

I'd like to think it's fun, messing with people's heads. Especially cause i believe the world should be color-blind. And forms shouldn't have the column for race, especially when it doesn't matter (SPM/STPM, anyone?)

sharman said...

mexican?? un dre un dre, rii baa rii baa!!! spicy mexican in the house?!

i really do agree that the world should be colour blind. growing up, i never really knew what "race" was (thx to the mixed parentage). only much later did i realize how ugly the world is.

and YES! why do they need race for those exams forms??? another note, once at pizza hut if im not wrong, the cashier had his own details stated on his cashier machine, and one part was race. wtf? double standards???

eh wait. i should've known that since 22 years ago...
