if this sounds familiar to you..

Imagine you're attending a seminar, or an intellectual discourse (yuck. Later you know why. Intellectual laa sangat) with bunch of your friends.

Later after the whole thing wraps up, you and your friends head to the Lobby enjoy free hotel food duh to socialise with the other participants.
Networking purposes.

Everthing was fine.
Food is great.
And your friends, just like you, who were never serious, was all goofed-up by the serious semantics.

Until this lady comes to you, with a certain urgency, to talk to you and your friends.
You know this type of ladies, she who smiles too quickly as her hand extends to you and grab you for a cheek-hug three times (kalau kau budak UIA kau tau kot).

Still fine.
She start introducing herself, when we all knew her already.
And she start poking question "what's you name?"

Stillllllll fine.
Until she start asking "oh you anak siapa ye? ikhwah mana ye?"

And then the expected befalls:

You two friends got her personal number, while you didn't just because you told her "you're no one she knows' daughter".
My friends, apologising, saying that "ala maybe they wanted to say hi to their friends", when they know, its all bull~ they don't even talk to each other.

I cringe. But I don't care.
Happens to me all the time. Just because my parents tak masuk organization mana-mana, does not make them less important.

Hello at least, I get off anywhere not because of my parents' name, but their guidance.
Cronyism. Sangat memualkan.

Hilang respek aku kat mereka2. At least be subtle la kan?

bukan kak af aje.. kalau anak 'ikhwah' tak glemer pun terasa hati.

then they keep questioned: "siapa ya? dulu belajar kat mana?"

dah terang gitu gini.. " ooo "

dan berakhir terbiar gitu je. huh?!

ohh awak pun ter'kena jugak ke?

i was thinking,tak bolehke dorg tengok skop yg lebih luas dari their own ties,alangkah ruginya if we fail to make others feel needed.

tapi tak semua.
tapi i can recall lah,different treatment is always expected when you're not from that ikhwah what not.

Kak Af, I know you know I'm on the other side of the coin but you know I don't like it...huuu~

munirah 21 April 2009 at 11:17:00 GMT+8

Amicus Curiae 21 April 2009 at 11:18:00 GMT+8

Amicus Curiae 21 April 2009 at 11:20:00 GMT+8  

tulah. it puts us in the most utmost uncomfortable situation.

aku rasa mcm check background,as if to check your worthiness.

haundem 21 April 2009 at 12:36:00 GMT+8

Amicus Curiae 21 April 2009 at 13:01:00 GMT+8  

woh saja nak up in the ante lah tu kalau wat cemtu.


AALAA' 22 April 2009 at 00:56:00 GMT+8  

haha. u know i rather hope they wud never ask cuz.. err.. u know.. im like totally different ngan my parents kot. so even if they know my parents, i stil got 'the stare' if u know wat i mean ;p and that, we hate too. haha

well on their positive side, maybe they thot u could be one of their hi school/ universty frens' daughter, of course among the millions of malaysians we met everyday, who knows the odds are there. even its very rare. haha

btw mlm ni liverpool v. arsenal. jum stayup! ;) (tp tonite im rooting for arsenal. hahahaha ;p)

uswah 22 April 2009 at 10:34:00 GMT+8 alak, i do get that 'stare' too!! haha menci menci

you can't afford me 22 April 2009 at 11:11:00 GMT+8  

perhaps these people would stop giving "judgmental stares" and "judgmental reactions", for what they are not giving good examples, even to their own kindred.

Amicus Curiae 22 April 2009 at 12:02:00 GMT+8  

point taken, alak n uswah.i agree. maybe dorg excited nak jumpa anak2 kwn2, but as noya said..don't have to give such reaction yg boleh menyebabkan org terasa.m not the only one.

for instance, i was totally skipped,secara tibe2 jadi invinsible.seriously that time my thoughts were "sayangnya all this while pergi kursus2." if i were a target madh'u..confirm pangkah!

in a bigger scope,its very detrimental.

Nur Kauthar 23 April 2009 at 15:26:00 GMT+8  

Kelakarla baca komen kak aalaa'. Macam nak jer kata yes! yes! I know what you mean :P.
Although now I'm starting to become more and more like my parents...Huuu~
Takut jugak one day I will become like that, no!!!!
Doa saya sentiasa baik yer kak af :)

Amicus Curiae 23 April 2009 at 16:11:00 GMT+8  

no la sis..i met both of your parents, they didnt make me feel awkward...dont worry.

tapi aku plak yang rasa bersalah sebab menculik anaknya yang soleh ini beberapa kali..n i know im not a good influence..jadi perasaan saya kepada ibubapa kamu ialah perasaan segannnnnnn.

asniloveschocolate 26 April 2009 at 19:30:00 GMT+8

Amicus Curiae 27 April 2009 at 11:19:00 GMT+8
