Wearing white shirt with black pants has almost become my ‘uniform’. So much so that when I go shopping, or when I look at work attire, I would end up looking at white shirts. As much as colored shirts and tops tempt and attract me, I would think twice to buy them. Simply because, I wear a white shirt almost everyday to the office.
On days where the legs are clean-shaven, Occasionally, I would pair the white shirt with a black skirt. Therefore, I would buy more and more white shirts, be it long sleeve or short sleeve. I would only wear colored shirts with matching earrings on days when I don’t have to attend court. But then again, how fancy can a white shirt be, right? And then there’s the dilemma when buying white shirt where most shirts are almost see-through. So I had to find the correct undergarment to be worn so as not to attract unwanted attention. Since the office is very near to KLCC and Pavilion, I would sometimes kill time after office, to avoid from getting stuck in the jam. What better way to unwind after a long day than to have a walk at the mall, ogling and drooling over buns and cakes, chocolates and pretzels, pizzas and pies, smelling the sweet smell of freshly baked Rotiboy and Famous Amos and the heavenly smell of freshly brewed coffee? Not to mention the clothes, shoes and handbags, of course. However I cannot help but feel like a salesgirl/sales-assistant/promoter when going to shopping malls simply because of my black-white combo. *sigh*
Last Friday I was busy choosing some silver pieces at Isetan for my Bestie when an auntie almost called me because she thought I was the salesgirl. I guess my handbag must have saved me because when I turned around, she tak jadi call me. Obviously a salesgirl won’t be walking around with a handbag on tow, right? STRIKE
So the question is why do salesgirls/sales-assistants/promoters wear a white shirt and black pants? In some restaurants, waiters and waitresses also wear the same combo. Luckily so far I have never been mistaken as a waitress. Can we make them wear colours instead? Can we?
Note to self: always have a jacket/cardigan on standby to be worn over the white shirt.
So here’s the thing. Some time in August, while at the
“…selamat hari raya…we met in
Honestly, I can’t remember exactly who did I help with enquiry? So I texted back and said something like this, “I’m sorry but I can’t remember…who blablabla” and then he/she replied, “…in the lift, you gave us your card, told us you’re already 8 months in practice…” and then it hit me. So, okay. So I replied the text with something like this, “oh I see…coffee? yeah…blablabla” Basically that was it because I thought it was just a friendly message and a friendly reply and I never thought that they would actually ask me to have coffee for real.
Until last week.
I received a text from him. Let’s call him D. I saved D’s number so I know it was him. It reads, “good afternoon! Any chance to meet up for tea/chit chat today at Pearl International Hotel Lobby (5th Mile Old Klang Road)?” I replied, “hi. I’m sorry I don’t think I can make it today. Besides, I don’t know exactly where Pearl International Hotel is and it’s not a good idea to go to
I cannot help but smell something fishy going on. I mean, come on. First I see it as a ‘friendly gesture’ to invite me to have coffee (even though it was weird for D to invite me for coffee because I thought what the heck for? I mean, I only showed and helped him where to file the Notice of Appearance. It’s not like I helped him win his case or something) but when I was offered the ‘job’, I can’t help but wonder. Who are you kidding right? I think this is the type of scam luring young women with something that is too good to be true and then later on send them on an overseas trip together with your ‘package’ or something.
So the question here is, was I too friendly? It is normal for me to give away my business cards, right? After all, it is called a business card. But then this is what happens when you ‘help’ people. When people smile, the right thing to do is smile back. When people ask for help (in Court no less), the right thing to do is help, right? But then again, D may not have bad intentions but the job offer sure sounds too good to be true. Note the words 'female single only' and why the need to stress that DR. TSAI has a PhD? I’m sure a naïve, gullible person would fall for the offer. I don’t know. What do you think?
