So, it's like this.
When you drive a luxury car, everything that comes out of it, people will believe it's authentic. Because nobody can fake an expensive car.
But, if you carry a Louis Vuitton and you only drive a Kancil, people find it hard to believe that the LV bag you have on your shoulder actually cost you RM5000.
So, there's this one makcik who just bought a Brabus.
"Kalau Auntie bawa kereta ni, makcik pakai handbag made in Golok pun takpe..." she said.
But I also have met a person with a different kind of mentality.
"Ye, memang betul kalau kita pakai kereta besar, kalau kita pakai Gucci fake pun orang percaya. Orang lain tak tahu, tapi kita sendiri tahu kita pakai barang fake...Untuk kepuasan saya sendiri, saya mesti beli yang original punya. Sebab kalau ikut betul-betul dari segi Islam, menciplak itu dah dikira mencuri....Sebab tu, kalau kita tengok orang putih, mereka tak support sangat CD-CD ciplak sebab mereka tahu, mencuri hasil kerja orang lain tu salah."
He added, "Kalau kita pakai barang original kan, kita sendiri rasa confident. Betul tak?"
Eh, tapi I rasa confident kalau ada orang mengorat I! Haha!
Speaking about being flirtatious, I don't know why some people don't take engagements seriously. When you are engaged, heck, when you are risik-ed, it means you are already attached!
Just now, a doctor indirectly asked for my number. I was happy, of course. As I was telling my boyfriend how hot I am (told you my confidence level go sky-high when somebody shows his interest in me, haha), we concluded he must think I haven't found out about his status. Gatal!
A colleague also recently was involved in this love triangle. He found out that the girl he was seeing was somebody's fiance from her friend. He went ballistic, of course. "Tapi kan, kasihan juga dekat perempuan tu, sebab dia cakap dia dipaksa untuk bertunang," he told us.
What kind of bull is that!
To snap him out of it, I said, "You nak percaya lagi cakap dia? Ini bukan zaman dulu-dulu lah. Kalau tak suka, cakap tak suka. Takde mak bapak akan paksa anak dia bertunang."
My other colleague said, "Orang zaman sekarang ni, tak paham konsep bertunang. Kalau dah bertunang, patutnya sudah bersedia untuk berkahwin. Dia tu, dah bertunang, tapi mata masih nak pandang orang lain..."
"Because...She thinks you are such a good catch!" I said, referring it to him, my colleague. "Kalau dah bertunang, dah bersedia nak kahwin, kita patutnya dah terima baik buruk tunang kita...Mana boleh, dulu suka sama suka, lepas jumpa you, tiba-tiba semua buruk tunang dia boleh nampak!"
I so don't like dishonesty!
Speaking about dishonesty, one pakcik in his late 40s was caught for stealing cash money.
I don't know why, thieves always think they are so smart but in actual fact, they are stupid.
He did it in the broad daylight and people witnessed the event. So, the boss investigated, within hours, he knew it was him.
Since this man is the boss, he knows a lot of people, one of them is a policeman. He arranged with the policeman to go the thieve's house. The thieve ran away and had a cup of coffee in a nearby coffeeshop, probably to relief his thirst after all the running. (Did I mention how stupid thieves are?)
The boss and the cop caught him, he admitted and returned the money. The boss, out of his mercy, didn't report the case because Hari Raya was a week away. He didn't want the thieve's family to be saddened by it and he didn't want to take away the only breadwinner in the family.
So, he let the thieve go. The boss didn't shout. The boss didn't even fire him. The young boss said, "Pakcik datanglah kerja minggu depan...Lain kali kalau pakcik ada masalah duit, minta duit tu dengan saya, jangan curi."
Just now, the kind boss even pay for his workers' zakats and went to all his workers' houses to deliver kain pelikat to them as Hari Raya gifts, including the thieve's house.
Agaknya, kenapa kain pelikat?
