So today I was walking to the city center to meet my friends for dinner.
Along the way, I saw this black guy with 2 bags of groceries from Morissons. Suddenly he stopped me and said... "Excuse me..." And i thought he was asking for directions or the time so i said "Yeah?" And he went.. "You look beautful" and i went.. "What? huh?"
He: You are beautiful
Me: Oh... er.. thanks.
He: Where are you going?
Me: huh? er.. i'm in a rush.. *prepares to run off*
He: Wait wait.. where are you going?
Me: Er i have to meet my friends. I'm running late. Bye!
He: Ok. You have beautiful legs! (i was wearing a denim skirt.) Bye!
Me: ..er.... thanks. *smiles*
and i hurried off. Actually I wanted to tell him i think that I have fat calves and thighs but i was scared haha and actually kinda embarrassed so i left quickly. I am not used to people stopping me in the streets and compliment me! :D
The other day, I was in the photocopy room and a PHD student from Nigeria talked to me. He took over one of the practical classes last semester and he said he remembered me because I'm so beautiful! LOL! I didn't know what to say because I'm so not used to that.. and i was nervous..cos it's just me and him in the photocopy room! Then he asked me loads of questions like "Are you from Korea?" "Are you married?" "Do you have a boyfriend". It was a bit weird... but luckily he didn't stay too long.
I don't know how to handle situations like this... It's just too weird for me because I've never seen myself as thaaat pretty! I mean.. no one will give me a second look in Singapore! I'm not used to people telling me I look beautiful..well except for Mr. Fat Fingers hehe.
