Just another day in the supermarket.

Attendant : Hi can I help you with anything?

Me : Yes. Can I have one of these please ? (pointing to something behind the counter)

Attendant : Yea sure. Anything else I can help you with?

Me : No that's all.

Attendant : I'm sorry but where are you from?

Me : (Puzzled) Malaysia, why?

Attendant : Oh, cos I can't guess because I can't seem to hear your accent.

Me : You mean cos I don't have an accent?

Attendant : Yea, but now I can tell your accent after you said "accent".

Me : -.-

Somehow I think he only said that because I already told him where I'm from. Oh well.

Happy Easter!

HAHAHAHAHA!!!!! that's really funny. my family is from Malaysia, but I do not speak Cantanese/Mandarin. I also do NOT live there, but i celebrate the customs.

Well Malaysia is probably one of the countries with most public holidays and customs due to its multiracial population :)

Its actually completely unsurprising to find local Malaysian chinese who can't speak Chinese or Cantonese as well haha.
