As a brat reaching that ripe age nearing the dreaded number three-and-oh I could not escape from that SUPER ANNOYING Frequently Asked Questions:
Bila nak kawen?
So, when is your turn?
Eh, ko bila lagi?
Bila nak merasa Nasi Minyak ko ni?
Don't you think I want to know that too?
Don't you think I would have invited you or mention about it if it's anytime soon?
I even listed it in the list of questions I'm gonna stop trying to answer - HERE.
Aside from close family, how many actually cared anyway? It's not like me getting married or the lack of it thereof will directly affect you. Well, unless I'm marrying or rejecting you or anyone close to you. But even then.... *sigh.
Really, if you are looking for a topic opener or small talk, be creative, think of something else or just be boring and ask about the weather, the time or just anything but that.
If you are asking to see if I'm single coz you wanna introduce me to someone, YES, I AM SINGLE. If I'm not I'll make it loud and clear that you will not be able to ignore it even if you want to.
And NO, I am not too picky or choosy or whatever. In order for a person to be choosy or picky, first thing they need is CHOICES to actually CHOOSE or PICK from, If there are no choices, how do a person become picky or choosy? I mean seriously, it's not like I receive declaration of love every other day (or in my case ever) and decides to brush it off and then stay single. Be reasonable in your accusations, will you?
And PLEASE do not ask me if you want to introduce me to someone. It is just WAAAY TOO embarrassing. Instead, just go ahead and introduce us. Make it informal, make it a leisure event. I really don't want to know that you are introducing me to someone with THAT purpose. If it happens, it happens. If not, let it go.
Don't worry peeps, if I am getting married, I'll be sure to let you know. you won't miss it. I really am getting tired of people asking me this FAQ. I am already very much aware of how old I am and how frequent I am getting invitations to my friend's wedding. You really don't need to add salt onto the wound.
Furthermore, I am not too worried. I'll marry when the time comes. Right now, I really would like to build up my own path. I don't want to get married just for the sake of getting married. I don't find the need to be desperate about it. I am most aware of my flaws and my awesomeness. It takes a certain kind of guy to handle this much of me, and I'm planning to wait until I find him. I strongly believe, there's a time and place for everything. And you be patient too. I'll get there when I do.
I know I'm not the only one who gets annoyed and irritated by this FAQ. So if you are one of those people who tend to ask it. Stop doing it. We really can do without it.
Just a little rant from the brat,
