Sunday evening. I was doing my groceries shopping as usual nearby my neighbourhood. I reached to the dairy department and wanted to get some juice. Then there was this old Chinese lady in front of my path with her trolly. She looked at me in the eyes and the first word came out from her mouth was: "Adik!"


My first thought was: I was so oooobbbbvious a Chinese race guy and why she would speak to me in Malay? Second. "Adik" is way too young for me. Do I really really looked that young?

Back to the story, I was shocked for a second after hearing the "Adik" and tried to help her whatever need she might come across. It seems she was looking for butter and I told her that the butter shelves is under renovation. (evil laugh: Hahahaha. That's for calling me "Adik") She looked disbelief so I told her to go that section and ask again.

By the way, I found old people hard to believe my words especially granny because this had happened to me before. I bet it must be the false age group that I'm projecting to people, even with this granny falls into it. :P
