Like Real Train Seat

I was getting on the STAR LRT at Masjid Jamek when I heard a voice:

Excuse me, er… ini tren ke Ampang ke?” (Translation: Is this train going to Ampang?)

I turned to the electronic signboard, saw that it was indeed going Ampang, so I turned around and said yes.

It was a Chinese chick!

Even weirder was that she then went to sit on the benches of the station instead of getting on the train.

Now I was not insulted despite my fairness that she thought I was Malay, or that I looked like a Chinese who could not speak Chinese. I’d prefer that Chinese people assume I can’t. (I can’t anyway.)

Dammit, why couldn’t it be like this case?
