The Misadventures of Sibeh Sian

You can call me Sian. Sibeh Sian.

The long and short about That Lousy Lie

Mondays have always been a draggy affair for me. It was even more so today because the minute I stepped into the office, everyone looked sibeh sian.

Office Bimbo looked sibeh sian. Boss looked sibeh sian. And Ms Tan was looking for Sibeh Sian because he made some sibeh stupid mistakes at work. About the only person who was smiling broadly was Nerd, because this is the second last week of his internship. Then he started to look sian too after I passed him more data entry jobs to do. Haha.

During the tea break chit-chat, I realized that everyone was feeling down because of Brazil’s shock defeat at the hands of France over the weekend. Some were even feeling suicidal because they contributed a major portion of their paycheck to Singapore Pools.

I realized my colleagues were not the only ones who suffered after I received a call from this fellow while having dinner just now.

Acquaintance Whom I’ve Not Heard From In Months: I will forgive you for what you did the other time if you help me out this time.

Me: Eh… I really can’t lah. . . . (Struggles to think of a convincing reason) Because of Brazil, I am also very broke now.

A: You mean you also betted on the match?!?!?

A: Don’t lie to me Sian, you were always very vocal against gambling one.

Me: (Took a deep breath)

Me: What I meant was that I paid a lot of money for my Brazilian waxing.

He hung up after a long and uncomfortable silence.


With Love,
Sibeh Sian

    Why is it that the money belongs to us but we find it hard to reject ppl who wants to take it away from us?

    I am sick of ppl borrowing money from me, and not returning it eventually.

    But well, I never learn. I still stupidly lend ppl money when they ask. -_-"

    hmmm... what if that friend is gay and he get turn on by your brazilian wax how? Then he might just forget about the money and just want your body instead.

    the average brazilian wax costs about $40-$45.

    Try and take it easy. Everyone makes mistakes now and then.

    Just make sure there are ways to correct it.

    Shameless fella, isn't he? Well, you can't really fault him for trying. Doesn't he get it after the last time? I think a firm resolute no is the best answer for these types whom you don't even see.

    LOL!!!!!!!!!!! you are the funniest thing alive!!!!

    U can try to send a SMS to that "acquaintance" saying that u have changed ur handphone number. Give him a fictitious handphone number as ur new hp number.

    This will stop all harrassment from that acquaintance. U can also save ur sibeh funny excuses for lending him money.

    Kanigi: I used to stupidly lend my 30 cents to my primary classmates too, and I never got it back. That hard-earned lesson made me into the unfeeling person I am today! Heh.

    Sunflower: It was an excuse! An excuse! Haha....

    Grace: He was a big time buaya at uni who took every opportunity to show off his WRX (which is now re-possessed, btw), so I think I'm safe about the gay bit ;)

    Le Raine: Aha! A fellow waxer? That's why the title of this entry is That Lousy Lie. Heh.

    Nadnut: From your emoticon I take it that it's very, very painful.

    LemonCloud: Being the cold and unfeeling acquaintance that I am, I will leave it to him to correct his mistakes himself ;)

    Green Ogre: Some people just don't get it even after getting rejected repeatedly. Wait a minute, that sounds awfully like me!

    Lambchop: Please advise how can I transfer the funds over to your bank account for saying that ;)

    LMG: Actually, I didn't pass him my new number when we left uni. I suspect it's probably Sushi Eating Friend who gave it to him, after saying something like "Go borrow from Sibeh Sian instead."

    Alicia: It was a pure moment of inspiration caused by desperation.

    The nerve! Still got the cheek to say he will forgive you IF you help him this time. As if you are the one begging for his mercy...
