that's just awkward~~

Awkward moment or embarrassing moment. You name it. I don't know why when sometimes we have a normal happy chit chat, suddenly the ending part can be a real turn off. From one excited feeling to... booOm! An awkward one.

A lot of things have happened in London but I haven't updated anything yet. Well, not just yet. Too many things to handle especially this weekend. Because of this heavy load, suddenly I have the feeling to just write, yeah, to unwind a bit.

Back to the topic about awkward moment. I am not really good at handling these particular situation. It's like, I get dumbstruck and hope that the moment will just pass by. Let me tell you some situations when I wish my talking partner didn't mention or say those things.

Situation 1:
- There were 3 of us in the kitchen. Talking happily with each other in rather a friendly mode. Asking questions that we thought were relevant, looking at each other preparing our own dinner, until one of the girls left us to skype with her sister. And there was the small sweet looking girl left in the kitchen with me. I was already having my meal in the kitchen (tried to be friendly by eating in the kitchen just to meet my flatmates) while the girl was putting some food in her rice cooker. I started telling her how I was so lazy to start cooking properly. Since I still have the instant food, I should just eat them before they go bad. She was collecting her stuff to bring them back in her room. And before leaving she said to reply to my story, "Oh, yeah! That's why. I was thinking, what ARE you eating?!"


How could she say that!! I was eating something decent okay! Breads with chicken curry!! (Yep, instant chicken curry. Don't stare at me! I can cook curry okayh! It's just that I still don't have a knife to cook...) Anyway, I felt so stupid that I didn't know what to answer. I easily just laughed and looked at her opening and shutting the kitchen door.


Situation 2:
- I was in the Muslim prayer room. Prayed Zohor prayer and rested there to wait for my next class. There was another Malay girl sitting next to me. Feeling so glad to have met another Malay, we talked and talked so much. She's such a sweet girl and seems so friendly. Had so much fun talking that I didn't realise it was almost time to go to class. I knew I had to make my move and said to her, "Okay, I have to go now. Nice meeting you. Will see around yeah! ;) " I zipped up my bag and started to make my move. On the spot she replied and said: "Yeah, See you. And you better buy a new bag sis!"


WHAT??? (For your information, there IS some err MINOR defect to the zipper of my bag. But it is STILL in a good condition. Yeah2, trying to justify myself) Well anyway, shouldn't we have a proper goodbye? SOBSS!! Luckily I like that girl that I didn't really feel like strangling her. Fuh! So I just gave her a light laugh and we exchanged salam.

Well, those are 2 embarrassing situations (for me) at the end of a conversation. Here's another one which top the list. It happened at the early conversation.

Situation 3:
- It was a 20 minutes break for our lecture. A few minutes before class started, one girl who is taking the same module with me entered. I was talking with my friend who was sitting behind me. The girl sat a few seats away from my friend and I can't remember clearly how but suddenly the girl was talking to me. She asked me where I come from. I told her 'Malaysia' and I asked her back. She said, '**********' (censor for safety purposes)' I might have given her a stupid look or something, that she started to explain where her country is. Roughly I got the idea and nodded saying,'Oh! Okay!' And guess what she replied?



HELLO! It's our first encounter! Can't you say something nicer? (And we didn't get to ask each other's name. Thank god our lecturer came back to start the class) Huu~~ But I guess it's alright. Maybe people when they get older, they tend to say everything what they think right from their mind.

*Should I turn into one as well?*


  1. haha, feels like i'm reading some of girls novel but it was a real story. feel sorry for you ( ̄- ̄)but i think is it western culture which people will say everything straightly from their mind, am i right? by the way do not feel ashamed at all but take that as one of humour of life. although i laughed a little bit reading these stories. hahahaha.... (^^)


    Epic, if she said that in the most serious manner, something is really wrong with her. =) Maybe you should have replied,

    YEAH, same goes to your bedside manner missy.

    Hehe, kidding. =) Haven't heard from you for quite a long time twinkle, hope you are doing great over there. =)

  3. HAHAHAHA damn awkward kot...but try to adapt with the people surrounding la kan, kalau tak mau nye sentap hari2, n aku rasa ko pun kena jadi macam diorang la kan. bagi diorg makan dalam hahaha.. saba ye syg

  4. izzat: yeah, i know. it's kinda funny to think of it again. that's why my normal reaction to these cases is just to laugh. >.< hahha!

    my twinkle! im doing great here, thank you! i hope u r doing fine as well! :D yeah, i was thinking of replying in that kind of manner too, but i guess i was just too stunned. hahah! miss u!! ;)

    mala ku cayang!! damn awkward righhht~~ i'll try to adapt. semua yang cakap nih bukan local pun actually. tapi dorang dah terbawa2 style sini agaknya. hahha!! akan aku bersabar je la selalu. muahSs!

  5. I guess you are now a stronger girl after encountering all those weirdos. Try in future to react this way: smile, breathe easy, look at this person in the most normal way (and put forth an indifferent facade), and then say, as kak Aini normally does, 'you are legend!' and then do the needful. No negative reaction please as 2 wrongs do not make a right.

  6. Haha! Does Kak Aini say that often? I really think she is the real legend then! Hehe.. Anyway, up till now I haven't been saying anything nasty to these kind of people yet. Some are just too nice to get nasty responses. Thanks ayah for the tips. I will remember to breathe in deeply~ and then, i might just put up one of my eye brows higher. :P Love u!

  7. ahakks obviously, ur not the prob.. maybe ko dah biase being around nice ppl in nihon.. hahaaa kau patut figure out muke2 yg best untuk react..kalau nk bitchy sket tanye adila.hahaaha.. tapi aku tgh bayangkan muke ko snyum2 ckp 'oww hehee'..

  8. tanya adila? no way! dia berlakon innocent punya... LOL! but u r soOo right about me just saying 'oww hehee' no other reaction aku boleh bagi bila speechless... hahaha!! :D

  9. i think, that's what we called, 'ragam manusia'. some peeps do respect others by thinkfing 1st before saying & vice versa. well.. i don't think u should be like them. just be as u're & try to be nicer, day by day. no revenge! sounds hard but, at least we know that we're better than them.

  10. yep, so true! nowadays people tend to just say whatever they want... sometimes even i do that too. hurm, we really have to learn to jaga2 with our words even more.. thank u for ur reminder kak roz!! insyaAllah, i'll try to be nicer, and not to act like them... hehe... :)
