Sam and I had lunch at 1U. Don joined us for a while. Since Chinese New Year is around the corner, festive decorations are up on every shopping mall. 1 Utama built a huge replica of a castle and had performances on it.
Before Chinese New Year, Chinese would shop for new clothes to mark the new year. I did my part, I bought a white T-shirt for work. Court rules dictates that all lawyers shall wear black and white in court.
While Sam was trying out her new tops, I walked to the G2000 section. I saw a nice white shirt @ G2000.
Unfortunately, I had an unpleasant encounter while trying out my new shirt.
I have read many stories on how Malaysian’s English are different than English’s English.
The white shirt was on the display rack and the sales boy told me that they don’t have any stock left. So I asked, “Do you think this would still be in good quality?”.
A typical Englishman’s answer would be, “Yes sir, absolutely”.
However, instead of the “Yes sir”, the bloody Sales boy replied,
“OF COURSE LA!”
At that moment, I felt like punching his face.
