I was tapau-ing lunch this afternoon when a waiter asked me a not-so-common question. (When i say not-so common, i mean, not "Makan sini ke bungkus Kak?" or not "Nasi nak berapa Kak?" or not "Air tak nak ke Kak?")
It is not so common (at least to me) as in "Akak pakai perfume apa? Wangi lah." (You can imagine the smile i had on my face)
And though i have actually been asked the same not-so-common question by a stranger before, it struck me flattery just the same. It's like a pat on the back for my right choice. It's like getting an unexpected approval for my good life that day.
I told the guy what he wanted to know, with a smile. Honestly, i am embarassed to admit that i didn't think he knew what i was saying, but i didn't care.
Truth is, I've been wearing the same perfume for so long i just don't smell it anymore. But that waiter reminded me of what's good that i have then, even just then.
I left the restaurant smiling. A stranger made me feel good about myself today.
He must have been sent.
