... when someone says, "Eh, awak dah kuruslah!"

What do you answer?

I've tried, "Okay, thank you. Jangan risau, I makan banyak."

But when people keep on saying it to me, does it mean I have to/ am expected to tell them they look thin/slimmer too? The Malay culture being what it is, I'm not surprised if that's what I'm expected to say.

I really don't know how to respond anymore.

And if the person did not gain/lose a substantial amount of weight, I really can't tell if they're thinner or fatter.

In fact, I've made that mistake many times. I've told a person many times that they look slimmer when they actually gained ALOT of weight for the time period we did not meet. Don't know how I could've made such a grave mistake!

Ish, honestly. I have really run out of ideas on what I SHOULD answer when someone tells me I have grown thinner.

Because guess what? Actually, I've always been like this and I know that I have NOT grown any thinner.

Maybe you want me to tell you you're thin, kot?

Shy to comment? Well, never mind! Your reactions mean the world to me! Make me smile today :)
