Siva: (Staring sharp at me) 'Fidza...you look different...'
Me: 'What different..'
Siva: 'I dunno la..(with his Indian-style-shaking-head)...different'
Me: 'It's my scarf'
Siva: 'Everyday ur wearing scarf..but today different..'
20 minutes later..
Siva: 'Fidza...not nice la wearing like this'
Me: (stunned for 2 seconds..looking at him)...'I like what i wear...and I don't care'...
Siva: '.not nice..not nice...' ..(still trying to 'attack' me)...
ok..where is this conversation heading towards?..hmm..I received 'ceplosan' from someone with big unmanaged hair, boot cut pants, a very tight long sleeve shirt..err..are we in the 70's...so..no big deal...
This is one example of many unpleasant 'ceplosan' that I had in my life. But usually I just ignore it.
If someone 'ceplos' / laughs at you...1. take a deep breath..
2. sigh a bit..but not too much..(just to release whateva unsatisfied feelings you have at that moment)
3. find his/her defects and say - 'my goodness...that blouse is hideous..'
4. look at that 'ceplos'-er...and imagine smacking his/her head with a tennis racket.
5. just smile and laugh it out...
OR Else...you won't get the satisfaction of experimenting....so..'berangan je la kan'...:)
..spanish wrap style..
..I even got laughed once by wearing something like this..
