I was around Clarke Quay last night, when walking along the path way, i took out my handphone to check sth..and slow down my pace.. then there was a mid year caucasian pushing a baby stroller and coming to the other way. he was alert that i may crash his baby or whatever, he talked to me 'open your eyes' in a tone i find it quite impolite ha. However, I said 'sorry' instantly without thinking and before i realise he asked me to open my eyes..
Afterthat, i found it quite pissed off actually, i wonder is 'open your eyes' is a rude phrase?or just simply i am lousy in my english interpretation. If next time, another caucasian talks to me like this way, i will approach him politely to make sure he doesn't mean that because i am an annoying asian.
I believe there is always certain racism among human beings, it is natural, I will do something to improve it, peacefully. ha.
Any caucasian out there? will you tell a tattoo man in Geylang to open his eyes?ha >_<
So is 'open your eyes' is a slang or whatever? let me know so next time if i am in a caucasian country i will say open your eyes instead of 'Be careful'..like Richard Gere in Visa ad.
