Tried to reload my phone during lunch today when I was out with my colleagues just now. Left them at the restaurant while I went to the phone vendors in the Giant Hypermarket. None of them had a DiGi prepaid reload, so I thought I might as well go back to the restaurant. Here’s where the freaky bit comes in.
I was looking at my phone when I was walking back to the restaurant, but I still looked up once in a while to see where I was going. As I did, I saw this dishevelled-looking dark-skinned guy in a pink shirt ahead. He passed by me, and then he did an about turn and seemed to walk alongside me. I was freaked, so I took an extra step to the side and walked faster. I thought he was going to try to steal my phone or something.
As I walked faster and went inside the restaurant (there were two waiters at the door to welcome customers, thank Gods), I heard him shouting something like, “Go back and work” in Malay. When I sat down, I turned and saw him coming up to the entrance of the restaurant. According to my colleague, the guy did come in and he talked about something at the counter. I have no idea what it was, but that was simply freaky.
Not to mention, if he thought I was a Muslim and that I should have been fasting, it’s not the way to shout at people in public about that now, is it?
