My wife has no opportunity to ask me:"where do you get the lipstick on your shirt?". Most probably never will.
But she has plenty of opportunities asking me:" Where do you get the fruits?" " who gives you Bak Chang?"， “Who gives you Rambutan?"
Today she asked me:" where do you get the plastic bags?". She was referring to the two empty plastic bags I put at the kitchen table (to be used as garbage bag).
I said:" I bought sandals and shoes today!".
"wah! so free to go shopping?"
It was not " so free", it was "taking a break".
I was on my way back to office using Kesas Highway after seeing a customer in Shah Alam this afternoon. I decided to make a detour to Summit, Subang Jaya to look for new pairs of sandals and shoes.
My old faithful pair of sandals had been with me for the past seven or eight years. They had "walked" with me to many countries and places.
I need to change shoes because of my "deformed" legs.
At the shopping mall, I decided to have a coffee break: a Subway sandwich and coffee.
Ordering a sandwich could be quite a demanding task. First I have to decide what type of filling in the sandwich - tuna? turkey? chicken? beef?seafood? or combinations?
Then what type of bread I wanted- Italian? wholemeal? Turkish? (4 types). Then the length - six inches or a foot long? Next was the toppings - more than ten types to choose from (Tomato, onion, pickles, green peppers, lettuce, olives.......). Finally, what sauce（dressing)?
It was good to slow down once in a while ... for a break.
但她却可以常常的问到：“你的水果在那里买的？” “谁给你的粽子？” “这些红毛丹那里来的？”
今天，她就问我：“这塑胶袋那里来的？”。 她指的是我放在厨房桌上的两个空塑胶袋 （可以装垃圾用）。
叫一份三文治，也的费点功夫。首先要决定那一种三文治 - 吐纳鱼？火鸡？鸡肉？牛肉？海鲜？或混合？接下来是要用什么面包 - 意大利？全麦？（四种选择）。
然后是长度 -六寸的还是一尺？接下来，要什么配料？整十多种来选 。。。生菜，番茄，橄榄，酸瓜。。。？ 最后，要用什么酱料？
