My boyfriend and I went to the Versace boutique.
He was eyeing on a pair of Versace shoes in the glass shelf and wanted to try them on.
"Berapa harga ni?" my boyfriend always speak in Malay when shopping in Malaysia. He likes it when Malaysian sale assistants speak in Malay ni matter how posh the shop is.
"Ini kulit babi."
"Ohh...Yeke..." my boyfriend continued to view the shoes. "Ade orang Melayu beli?" my boyfriend asked.
"Ade yang tak kesah...Kite pon serba salah nak jual....Mase minta tunjuk, kita cakap ini kulit babi, tapi diorang tak kesah...."
"Hish, Melayu ni...Sanggup eh diorang nak pakai style punye pasal..." my boyfriend commented.
I like to think positive, so I defended them, "Diorang pakai stokin kot..."
The sale assistant then said, "Pakai stokin pon...Tapi...Masih babi kan..."
My boyfriend agreed with her, "Ha ah...Kan ade kulit lain, nak jugak pakai babi!"
I have friends who wear shoes made of pig skin leather. She is very careful not to wet it and wear socks with the shoes everytime.
