I don't really go to the market. Not that I'm too hoity toity for a wet, smelly, hot and full of ah-soh and know-all makciks... it's just that, by the time i wake from my slumber, the market is already closed lah!! So anyway, on Wednesday, I managed to drag myself out of bed and reached the market about an hour shy of it's closing... after getting my meat and chicken and fish, i was on my way to buy shiok mee soto at the food place above the market when i met this makcik who claims to be a friend of mak's..... Then the following conversation took place......
"eh... how are you? long time never hear your story ah..... so where baby?"
Hmmm.... I thought..... where baby?
So I replied,"Not yet lah Cik..... Not time yet..."
"Not time yet? When?"
hmm.... how would i know? God is it?
So again i reiterated," Not yet lah cik... but we still trying..."
"Alamak, trying? should have baby long time already...... i think maybe you do wrongly is it?"
I was ????? Bearing in mind this took place at Yew Tee market.... i just turned and walked away.....
Tactless.... that's just the way some people are.... sigh....
This brings me back to the reason why i don't like going to the market. I simply don't want to meet makciks who tell me that i'm having sex wrongly. I simply don't want to meet mak's friends to whom quick retorts would come across as being rude instead of witty and touche.... never mind lah.... paying a few more dollars to shop at supermarts is more acceptable to me, even if mak does not render it so..... Sorry mak... ;P
