To Talk Properly
After the following 2 incidents, lim peh finally understood the importance to speak properly and to make myself clear when conversing with another person:
My cha-bo-lang bought me a new T-shirt but after wearing it for one time, lim peh just chucked it in the cupboard and not wearing it again.
My cha-bo-lang immediately ROARED after hearing my reply.
I had a hard time explaining to her that what lim peh really said was that T-shirt 不吸汗.
My cha-bo-lang brought me to a shop to buy a watch for lim peh.
We were looking around in the shop and lim peh heard my cha-bo-lang asking the shop owner: "Do you have any second hand watches? I will like to take a look."
Lim peh stared at my cha-bo-lang cos I don't believe my cha-bo-lang is so cheapo as to wanting to buy a second-hand watch for me as a present.
"Eh... 老婆, I don't need a watch la, if not enough money, no need to buy me a watch la."
"I have money la, don't worry." My cha-bo-lang replied.
"But... then why do you want to buy a second hand watch for me? I don't want a second hand watch, I want a first hand one."
"You gila or what? What I meant was to get a watch with a second hand in it, not a used second hand watch la."
