You remember my colleague who got confused with ‘blah’ as ‘belasah’? Yes, the one who would call it the day by saying “Let’s belasah!!!”… :P
Well here’s a rather another ‘confused’ incident of hers. *grin*
One day in office, being the usual chirpy her, she came and approached me:
She: Lilia, Lilia! You know what, I learnt new malay words yesterday night.
Me: Oh is it? What words did u learn?
She: Yesterday I went to eat naan cheese & tandoori chicken with my bf. He sat and waited at the table while I went to the mamak guy. My bf told me he wanted the breast meat for his tandoori chicken. So I went – Boss, saya mahu itu dua ayam tandoori, satu peha, satu tetek.
Me: OH MY GOD!!!! Please don’t tell me you actually did say that!!!!
She: I didn’t know! But I knew something was not right coz everyone seems to give this weird stare at me. So I went to the table and told my bf. He laughed so hard mannn.
Me: Hahahahaha. I would be laughing too if I was there..
She: But anyway he told me what’s the right word to be used next time.
Me: Oh he did? Not bad, see your bf’s malay language is not bad, you should learn more from him. Now you have new teacher already, no need to ask me.
She: Yeah.. *smile*
Me: So what did he tell you?
She: He said, next time, if i want to ask for a breast meat, ask for “buah dada”.
Me: HAHAHAHAHAHAHA! My goodness…. I should correct that before you two go and scare other people laaaa!!!
She: Haaaa? Why? What’s wrong??
Me: Just ask for ‘bahagian dada’ laaa…
She: But I thought breast is breast la… Dada is chest isn’t it?
Me: Hmmmmmmmm… Okeyyyyyyyyy. *speechless for a while* Well, you just have to trust me ok… Enough said.
She: Oh, ok. Will let my bf knows then.. Thank you!!!
Oh dear... please excuse my colleague ok.. She means no harm. She's innocent.. hehehe. So cute.
Happy Friday peeps.. and enjoy your weekend!
