223 : Eavesdropping

Eavesdropping, listening into people's private conversations.
A little habit I have since the beginning of my memory.
I must be a quite high level in eavesdropping now.

You can hear the funniest of things for eavesdropping.
Some of the funniest ones I remember.

__________________________________________

In pavilion, a mum to her about 18 year old son while heading to the underwear departarment,

"I swear, you have an underwear obsession. Do you have to buy one box every time??"

__________________________________________

On a bridge over looking and art museum(looks like an Eiffel tower),
This guy was leading a small group around the city.

"And that unique looking building there is the... er... I forgot.. 
Moving on..."

__________________________________________

On the train.
2 Malaysian guys talking in the train.

"You put too much then it's like you don't feel anything"
"Yea, what brand condom do you use?"
"Durex lo.."
.
.
"Eh, you know i had one friend lost it in the car."
"Isn't that illegal?"
"Yea, but i did it 4 times back in Malaysia."
"You not scared getting caught meh?"
"Not really la, cause I'm on top and she is at the bottom mah, so i can look out the windows while doing it lo."
"Maybe i should try it one day lo, hopefully my girlfriend would want to do it too."
"Yea, its quite fun, you should try."
.
And they went on and on about how they had sex with their girlfriends and the train reached the last stop so bohoo, i didn't get to listen everything. But seriously.. Malaysians on the train.. Giving us a bad name in Australia..
__________________________________________

Just few conversations i distinctively remember. 
Anyone got the habit of eavesdropping too?

Love,
Leonut

  4. You reminded me of a friend. About Malaysian giving Malaysian a bad name etc for example sexing around or drink til drop or something like this, talking bout sex so openly in public etc. It irks me when someone says that, especially when it involved such a trivial topic. What's is so wrong bout talking bout sex so openly that they should be said as giving Malaysian a bad name? Or is it wrong that they have sex with their gf?
    Just because we don't talk bout it so openly in Malaysia? Or because its against the 'Malaysian' norm to talk bout sex so openly?
    Sometimes I do wonder what counts as an 'embarassment'. The topic, the people talking so shamelessly bout it, the situation or audience.

    1. Well its not exactly an embarrassment topic but it was in the crowded 5pm train and i could hear them from half a car away. They were loud. Like literally loud till it was just awkward.
      Yes, its about the sex thing and no, its not because its a taboo topic in our country but the fact that you must put the point that it is a public place and people, malaysian or other nationality, and of different ages are there. Its just basic manners. Not everyone wants to know what position you do. So i guess it would be all 3 together, people, situation and audience to make it an embarrassment.
      Just my opinion..

  8. Haha. I'm terrible at this. Most of the times, my classmates will sit next to me and gossip for like half an hour while I'm doing something and then they'll ask me if I heard anything. And I honestly don't coz I'm not paying attention. Haha. They ALWAYS do this. They'll sit right next to me and gossip non stop. The funniest part is, they'll ask me and when I say no they'll continue again ><
