The other day, I bumped into a friend in a coffee shop,instead of the normal exchange of niceties, he began by saying this to me," You "teruk " lah, how can an uncle like you dare to wear a pink short pants." I was like,"did you pay me not to wear pink short pants ? "
You know I met a wonderful lady from a dear friend's wedding the last weekend, she was originally from Penang but she'd been staying in Melbourne for over 35 years already,over the chat, I casually asked her,did she ever think of relocating to Penang,surprisingly and adamantly she said,"No way"
I then asked her why that she was so certain that returning to her good hometown of Penang never crossed her mind,plainly she said,she was happy there instead of here. Nobody would ever point a finger at her of the way she chose to dress but here is different. She can "bling bling" all that she wants and nobody would give her a stare.
Sometimes I really think we would miss out on LIFE,if we care so much of how people judge us,how would people think of us, we are so scared that people would laugh at us,if we behave otherwise than the norm.
We get stuck in a "dead relationship" because we are so afraid that people might think we are a "tramp" if we keep searching for one true love.
I like to dance very much and I really don't care if people were to give me the "one kind" look,"aiseh man, uncle like him also wants to shake like that" I just don't care, I love to wear outrageous colors paint, I like pink and red pants and I don't give a hoot of what others think of my fashion sense.
I like to run and sometimes I like to run bare chested and I don't care if people say as if I like to show off my body or whatever,(not that I have a body that you'd drool over) it is just that I like that feeling of care freeness.
Take fashion for an example,do you dress to feel good about yourself or do you dress up to make others feel good about you? Think about it ya......
I like this lady already at the first greeting she extended to me..Thank you for sharing Imey......
