By Chindian, it means a person of both Chinese and Indian ancestry.
That's what a new girl in the IT department told her colleague. I was looking for someone in the IT department and only the new girl was around. She told her colleague that someone came looking for her. She thinks the lady is a Chindian in the Finance department. Her colleague rightly guessed it was ME! Ahahaha Adoi.
There was one time, I was talking to the office tower guard while waiting for the lift and he remarked about how well I talk in Malay. Mind you, I was wearing a baju kurung that day. My answer : "of course I talk well in Malay. I am Malay" Double adoi.
When nosy people ask about me having only one child, I've heard remark about how "unMalay" of me to have one child. What's that suppose to mean, darling? Malays breed like rabbits? Don't generalise. I have a Chinese friend with 5 kids, you know.
Also, if you say I'm very different from other Malays - what's that supposed to mean? A compliment to me? An insult to me as a Malay? I've also been accused of being "unMalay" by Malays. WTH?
No, this is not a racial post.
It's just that I feel that sometimes we do compartmentalise people into categories and stereotypes. Don't.
