Photo story

Since I spend so much time in the office, I like to be surrounded by my favourite plants, postcards, books and photographs.
.
Most people are drawn to my cosy corner. We had some visitors today and the ladies were snooping around, looking at the photographs.
.
"Is this your dog? So cute!"

Me: Thank you. :-)
.
When they saw this photo of us at a friend's wedding, one asked, pointing at CH,
"Is he a doctor?"

Me: No lah. :-) :-)
.
Then they saw photos of my kids, they went
"Wah, your kids so big ah! You don't look like a mom with such big kids!"
Me : Thank you. Thank you. :-) :-) :-)
.
When they came to this photo, they said
"And this must be your daughter. How many kids do you have?"

Me: Oi! She is my best friend! FYI, she's as old as me.
.
Oops! Suddenly, they both kept quiet. Then the matronly lady cleared her throat and said nervously, "Oh, it happens to me all the time..."
.
Er, thank you very much. By the way, this is not the first time I have heard this comment. I really should put this photo away.
.
On hindsight, maybe she thinks that girl in red is my daughter! Yah, right, dream on Blur Ting!

Fear not fear not, when I go back, I'll go places with you, and people will be asking me, "oh is Ting your niece?"
And I'll say Yes Yes Yes :)

Ha, that's nothing, I was in church last year and this lady who had two kids and even looked as old as I am, came up to me and said:

'uncle, can I borrow your newspaper?'

I was stunned speechless, do I look to old that people older than me are calling me uncle? LOL!

Blur Ting said...

Haha, Nick, really or not? I read your friend's comment. Someone said you're very handsome woh! :-)

Hello Blur

Maybe the person who commented on the last photograph wasn't wearing her glasses?!

Nice pics to surround yourself with though!

OH dear he he he...LOL LOL!!!

I LOVE Rusty's pic and I still can't believe that you're a Mom who have such big kids. :-)))) You look WAY too young for that he he he...

And I also think that CH looks a bit doctorish or computer expertish he he he...

Oh yeah, did I ever tell you that one time one of my closest friends had a cropped haircut (kinda like Demi Moore's haircut in Ghost) and at the traffic, some child busker came close to her car (she was driving) and said, "Mister, please give me some money."

She was SOOOOOOOOOO PISSED ha ha ha ha ha ha ha...

My hubby is the youngest son in the family, but many people thought he is the eldest! His big brother in law is just like his younger brother as well.. *doh*

One more, my sister in law is taller than her hubby (that cute brother in law)... and many people thought her hubby is her younger brother..LOL..just like the youngest son in my hubby family. qiqiqiqiqi... *doh I hope I don't make you confused*

Hi World and JY, yah, we gotta buy them new glasses :-)

Blur Ting said...

Amel - Thanks :-) :-)
I know how your friend feels now!

Blur Ting said...

CH - At least you look like a doc, I look like WK's mother!!

Blur Ting said...

Wah Trinity, quite confusing but I gather that your brother in law is one cute, boyish guy ;-)

At least they thought you were WK's mother and not CH's.
