I was down with a slight fever, major sore throat and flu (my nemesis) for 2 days so to make it all go away I took some pills, gargled salt water and slept the whole day 2 days ago. I feel much better now but my nemesis decided that it loves me so much to stay and haunt me.
So this is what this post is all about. Basically crap.
Other than that I've been receiving a lot of questions recently through my formspring. So much so that I think it's the same people who wanted to know more about my life? But some were very sweet and nice so I would very much like to express my personal thankful here. I wish I know who you guys were.
There's also a portion of it which I could not be bothered. A portion of which I hope by now you've realised I have a thing for manner. Now where's that Salam and hello? You don't come to people house without saying and having your manner with do you? And let me tell you this
Manners bring you far. It does.
Now I'm curious, what is it with people so wanting to know your age? Haha. I got that a lot lately and it makes me wonder. Why does people can't help to know your age? Is it because they can judge you afterwards?
When I first met my husband 3 years ago the first question that he asked me was "how old are you?". Daring. But that was after he said hello and knew I was a postgrad among the undergraduates there. Manner. Bonus point!
I don't usually mind when people ask me of my age but I wonder what comes after in their mind. So after I got closed with him I asked him why is the first question was about my age? Well he said that usually in those days before 2007 where scholarships for postgraduates offered in mass, postgrads are the one who either married and have kids or age more than 30.
He wanted to know if I'm fit in any of the groups.
When I told him I was the same age as he is I can see through his face that he has a few other questions but hesitated. He saved it for later. Smart guy. So I asked again "Why do you want to know if I'm fit in any of those groups? What does it brings you?" I remember it vividly he said with a cheeky smile "So that I know that I can a chance with you and look at how it worked out"
Cheesy. Obviously that wouldn't be the answer if that was asked during our first meeting. This was after we got engaged. In the end truth gave in and he was merely curious with the way I presented myself and doing postgraduate at the same age as he is and trying to fit them both together. Classic case I suppose.
Now if you ask somebody of his or her age, what brings you?
