We live in a sad, realistic world. But I like the way the gentleman spoke out. Aces for him.
Last year (around this time of the year), my mum wanted to introduce me the daughter of an old neighbor. They have become very rich through her hardworking father, but her parents are very humble and we visit each other every CNY. However, this only daughter (and quite chio too) is cocky and has never even spoken to us or visit us at all these few years (When she was younger, she's quite ok, but still had the I-am-higher-than-you look). Coincidentally, she used to work in the bank (after she came back from Australia) which I worked (I was still an IT field engineer back then). Whenever I passed by her desk, I would smile at her, and well, I have never seen her smile back, sometimes a little wry smile which is weird.
At that moment I wonder: why is she not married yet? She has a good job, has an overseas degree and still hasn't lost her charms (I saw her once last year around Raffles Place) although she is two years older than me. So I told my mum that I have to reject her, because she is a person who lacks sincerity. Why only now? Why not 7 years ago when I obtained my basic degree? Is she really looking for a husband? I said: if she had been friendly to me in the past, I would really want to meet her. But now, nope, no thanks.
