Lately, I have taken to favouring a ruffian-ish look, unshaven with slightly messy hair (a little like the picture above).

Dressed in a pair of five year old faded jeans, dirty brown loafers, an old checked shirt and a smelly old sling bag, I poked around the kitchen department at Harvey Norman’s with Seekarlui. We were looking at the wood panels for cabinets when an auntie, sixty-ish I presume, interrupted us.

“So is this wood good ah?”

I replied, “Looks nice. Should be good. I’m not sure.”

“Ya. I like this wood. I want to install this for my kitchen,” the auntie said.

“It’s a nice choice. The colour is neutral and colours are easy to match.”

“I think so too,” she agreed.

As the auntie turned to leave, she quipped, “Are you a carpenter ah?”


Ciiiiiiissssssssssssssss…. 😦
