The 2 sides of everything

Scenario 1:-

This morning I saw a lizard for the first time in my kitchen, scared the shit outta me, yeah, i'm super scared of things slimy and cold - frogs top the list, cicaks second.

Then i thought, maybe i scared the shit outta the lizard also, it seeing me for the first time too maybe. Perhaps it thinks it owns the kitchen too????

Scenario 2:-

My condo's lift requires us to touch the access card to the card reader panel in order to press the buttons to reach our respective floors.

The card reader panel was out of order that fateful day, which it has never been, since i shifted in nearly 2 years ago. That's my defence, read on...

So i entered the lift, there was a couple inside. I repeatedly touched my card to the reader and there wasnt a nit of a reaction from it. The couple was looking at me trying the whole time without saying a word, until i finally realised that the reader was out of order, and pressed the button to my floor. (Meaning everyone can access all floors). I immediately thought, stupid couple, cannot open mouth to just tell me the reader spoilt meh...

Then it dawned on me that maybe the couple could be also thinking, stupid girl, press so many times only realized the reader spoilt....

Scenario 3 :-

I just got my bridal photos back from the studio the other day, emailing to some of my close frens to get their opinions on the photos (general opinion is ok larr, bolehlah. Will post some here soon).

Anyway, one of my girlfriends is also having her wedding soon, and she had also gotten back her photos from the studio. In my enthusiasm to share mine and to see hers, i said why dont you email me some and i'll also email mine to you. She said ok.

Hours passed, didnt receive her photos, so the following emails were exchanged-
Bridezilla 1 (me) : "Where are your photos?"
Bridezilla 2 (her): "Where's yours???? I didnt bring mine to work"
1 : "on condition that you send me yours moro" attaching my photos
2 : "Eh fren, i didnt even ask to see yours lar"
1 : :-/ (wtf!)

Apparently, she had taken offence and interpreted my "on condition that you send me yours moro" as "eh you kiamsiap and refusing-to-share bitch, here are my photos, you better send me yours moro or else".

So there, my brand of humour does not fare well with everyone. And she's probably stressed out with the wedding arrangements etc, and this pesky friend who keeps asking where her photos are isnt helping AT ALL!

I'm still on the fence whether to make amends with her or to just keep it as a formal and courteous kind of frens as 10 years of friendship couldnt make her understand my slap-sticking and wuliao type of humour, she still wont be able to understand given another 10 years, right.

But then again, me as a fren of hers for 10 years too, maybe i should've realised that she's the sensitive (and unappreciative of my humour) type and be less 'direct' in my communication with her?...

Oh well, life's funny and fragile like tat...*scratch head and pray for lizard to migrate to next door*

He he i totally get where your friend is coming from cos the word 'on condition' makes it sound like she was the one who asked to look at your pics.But her reply was really honest so that means she really trusts you as a friend. You know how some ppl whom ur not close to you have to really jaga-jaga with words?

Btw love the green dress and the hair with the green dress!But the other pics are nice but normal looking. I'm sure you have more 'wow' pics in the 65?

ya, i realised i tend to think i am very funny stimes..haha..and take it for granted that everyone's just like me. U're honest too, and i thank u for that..:-)

Yup, so far green dress and hair got the most thumbs up. I just went to choose the albums' pics on Saturday and was very pleased with myself that we only added RM120 total (for 2 additional designs)! Think keep is very affordable..
