“sir, do u wanna swap your seat with me?” as she pulled my shirt sleeve to gain my attention coz I’m wearing earphone
“sorry?” while I removing my earphone
“do u wanna swap your seat with me?”
“why?”
“no, because I see that you are not very comfortable, I don’t mind to swap seat with u”
“oh, no2, it’s okay, I’m fine with this, thanks though”
“are u sure? Coz I’m happy to do that for u”
“nah, I’m sure, it’s okay, appreciate”

“do u need any help?” I asked her when I saw she upload her bags on her bicycle
“no, I’m okay, thanks”
“so u traveling on ur bicycle with all these stuff??”

“lol,,its crazy Jawn,,so u are going straight to jetty?”
“lol,,,owh no, I think I’m gonna round this town first,,”
“ok,,gud luck again”
“okay, thanx, see ya,,”


This is some of the conversation about how I met with a very polite Australian girl who sat beside me in the bus last night. She did approach me at the first place by asking me to put on my seat belt. Then what I really didn’t expect when she offered me to swap seat with her when she saw me kinda struggle on my seat, in case that I’m not comfort with mine (my seat was the only seat in the bus that didn’t have the arm holder, I don't know why, but its kinda hard to fit urself at the first place). Seriously guys, she’s very kind, humble, caring, independent, not to say quite pretty and sweet,,lol,,

What is the moral value that we can get from this story?

It’s hard to find fellow Malaysian as polite as her. We Malaysian should learn to be more polite and concern with people around us, not being a total selfish. We won’t lose anything by being good with others as others around us will also be good with us, what goes around comes around, remember? Just like what Earl always talked about, KARMA.

How to make people like or comfort with us?? Easy! SMILING! Just keep the smile on our face all the time and I promised u the result is superb!!!

I won’t forget our friendship Jawn. U show me something that is very valuable, something that money can’t buy. I gain a lot instead of our short friendship. Thanks to u.
Good luck with your journey… =)
