Cringe moments

Mulling over my cringe moments, I decided that I will not feel too embarrassed if I were to share cringe moments of my nearests and dearests. In the tradition of doing things that shouldn’t be done while there are other more urgent and important work with deadlines looming ahead, I decided to tag myself after reading Naz’s cringe moments. I decided that things like cringe moments, must not be kept to yourself or else you’d die laughing - alone.

Now, here goes.

Cringe moment 1 - The line snaking to the food counter of the canteen of Block 3C in Shah Alam was so long and the only thing that kept us in line was the smell of food and for us, the songs that they played over the loudspeakers. I was there, as usual with my group, Fatimah Abu Bakar, the celebrity mum of several celebrity children, Mia, Tini, Ina and Riza, but I don’t know whether Ena, our resident squatter was there. Anyway, soon they were playing my favorite song, Just One Look and there I was, in my kebaya, prim and proper, swaying and singing along.

“Just one look, and I felt so high, high, highhhhhhhhhhh….”

Unfortunately, when I hit the high note – highhhhhhh, they switched off the player, leaving me highiiiingggggg solo,piercing the silence in a hall of hungry diners. Heads looked up from their plates and eyes from all corners of the canteen were on me. My friends didn’t help either because after the initial shock, they fell about laughing. I just wanted the floor to open up and swallow me.

Cringe moment 2 – During one of my visits home, I went to open a bank account. My friend who worked there decided to speed up matters and assigned a bank officer to help me. I gave my particulars and then waited while they processed the account. The young officer emerged again and asked me to sign on the dotted line, with instructions: Tolong tekan kuat-kuat sikit., kak.

I duly signed, tekan kuat-kuat as instructed, feeling quite flattered that he called me Kak. And within a few minutes, I was the owner of a new bank account with a bank book to show for it. I looked through but couldn’t find my signature and asked the friendly officer, “Eh signature tadi tak lekat ke? Nak sign lagi sekali?”

Needless to say, he was puzzled and my friend gave a nervous laugh and explained that the signature was actually invisible for security reasons.

Aiyyyoooo, Mak Cik macam nak pengsan situ jugak!

There are more but I’d rather tell about others’ cringe moments.

My sister and her friends were so looking forward to the wedding of one of their friend’s son. They were to bring with them all the hantarans and dressed to the nines, they proceeded from their hotel and searched for the house in Melaka. Seeing a house all lit up with marquees and lagu pengantin blaring from the sound system, they went in. As is the custom in Melaka, I was told, they were welcomed with fireworks lighting up the sky. They were ushered in and they placed their hantarans before them, and were delighted that they were early. They looked around looking for any familiar faces when a lady approached them, apologising profusely. They had gone to the wrong kenduri house!!!

As they left, the ‘real’ groom’s entourage arrived but all fireworks were used up and they entered the house without any fanfare.

My sister can compile a book on cringe moments. Here’s another one. Her husband drove her to the market. She got out of the car and told her husband to wait. After just one purchase, she came back, got into the car, took one look at the guy behind the wheel and both of them screamed with shock. She got into the wrong car. Her husband had driven ahead.

Now, with a mother like that, what do you expect of the daughter? Sorry Dena, I feel that I have to tell this. Dena is now in confinement after giving birth to a baby girl. Tahniah! Anyway, when she was doing some practical work at a firm, she was asked to man the phone. She was reading a novel and came to the part when the hero proposed and…the phone rang. She picked up the phone, eyes still glued to the dialogue in the book and said: Will you marry me?

I will end these embarrassing, cringe moments with my husband's story.

I was waiting for him at our usual meeting place, when I spotted him walking towards me. I thought something was wrong and of course, there was something wrong! He was wearing one black shoes with lace and on the other foot was one black slip ons!

He nearly caused me a heart attack, when at dinner with some friends, during discussions about plates etc, he announced that we used Durex plates. What he meant was Duralex!

And with that I tag and dare Pi Bani, Queen of the House, Puteri Kamaliah and Kay_Leeda and who ever wish to join in to tell us about their cringe moments.

Kak Teh's other cringe/weird moments are here:

Ms B said...

*lol* U never fail to amuse me.

Hmm, feel like doing this tag too but I cant remember if i hv any! (I'm a boring lot). BUt I know plenty with respect to my friends (and funny dates!). *winks*

Pi Bani said...

Aiseh man... dalam pada tak berkenan bab-bab tagging ni, asyik kena tag le jugak lagi.

Anyway, bab signature tak lekat tu, mula-mula dulu I pun pelik juga tengok blank je tak nampak signature. Only difference was I didn't ask. I figured kalau sungguh signature tu perlu nampak kat situ, surely the officer would ask me to sign again. So, selamatlah from one cringe moment.

As for my cringe moments... hmmm... nantilah I nak kena bertapa dulu to recall them... :)

wahaza extra said...

Durex plate? Muahahahaha;

I think the one when I just walk in (late) into a wrong meeting room at government office and it was a big2 boys meeting and I just sit down and realise after somebody shoo me out of the room. So cringe till I just went back straight.

elisataufik said...

aduhai kak teh...
sakit perut ketawa...!!!

i have a cringe moment:
I was standing and talking to a colleague who was sitting on a chair. I had to go closer to look at his computer screen and supported my hand on what I thought was the back of his chair which felt unusually springy, which made me massage it a bit (to test it lah lebih kurang), only to realize that the back of his chair is lower than other chairs and I was actually massaging his shoulders!
i removed my hand and kept a straight face, and I think he too realized my embarassment and never mentioned it.

[danial][ma] said...

hej! kak teh...hahahahaa...what a great reading yours during this gloomy afternoon over here...yeah, you never fail to amuse people..;-)

IBU said...

ahahaha... kak teh..... habis emerged semua my crow lines laughing out loud sorang2 ni ha.

awat la tak tekan kuat... signature tak keluar?! AHAHAHAHA !!!!!

u can be so cruel with your jokes la kak teh - sbb bagi orang sakit perut! HAHAHAHA... tak habis lagi ni... HAHAHAHA

Kak Teh said...

ms b, pls pls pls do it..and I promise not to laugh. Or else you can tell me about it over dinner.

pi bani, jangan bertapa lama-lama sangat tau!

wahaza extra - u masuk salah meeting, kak teh masuk salah ball room for our 30th form sixth reunion. It was dark when I went in, and when the lights went on - i saw that everyone was so young. Takkan lah they managed to preserve themselves so well..rupa2nya salah bilik! Masuk ke bilik yang betul, barulah nampak pak cik2 yang boroi dan botak dan mak cik2 yang bertudung dan sungguh gempal. hehe!!

Kak Teh said...

elisa!! dah lah rest your hand, lepas tu dok massage pulak buat apa! hahaha!
But I think mine was worse. I visited the Bernama office - a friend took me to the canteen and I realised that the door closed with a bang. So trying to prevent that bang, when I entered, my hand instinctively went back to stop the door from banging, not realising that a man was right behind me and my hand actually was at that level just below his belt!

Kak Teh said...

danial, it is gloomy where you are? It is the same here so i have to cheer myself up like this. Merapu banyak2.

Ibu, budak tu mesti pikir, ish mak sik ni dok london pun dok blur lagi!

Unknown said...

adoih la sakit perut!
Adoi seronok betul gelak kat orang ni hehehe. Jangan mare ;)

Queen Of The House said...

Tengah-tengah malam ni I dok gelak macam pontianak sorang-sorang reading your cringe moments, and Kak Puteri's too! Hee hee heeeeeeeee apa nak jadi!

I am still considering whether I should write mine ... malu eh. They're not funny like yours but embarrassing just the same. Tag ni ada expiry date ke, Kak Teh?

Kak Teh said...

akmal, gelak, jangan tak gelak!

QOTH, dont worry, benda ni tak ada expiry date. Go and enjoy the children's school break if there are any cringe moments - let us know.

kay_leeda said...

Kak Teh,

Taking a break from my work related writing. Will come up with my cringe moments in Sembang at Kay's but hope this one will suffice for the time being.

It was during my calculus class in college. Was asked to show how to solve a differential equation to the rest of the class. Perasan terror lah..coz mat salleh pun tak tau nak buat kan. Then when it came to explaining the terms, I forgot these mathematical terms - "denominator" and "numerator". Lastly, dah tersipu-sipu kat depan tu...apa lagi I created a new set of terms - "upstairs" and "downstairs" (direct translation from BM - pengatas & pembawah). I was going like, "If you devide the upstairs with this downstairs number..."

Upon seeing the looks on my instructor's face...eee...didn't quite know where to put my two- seconds-ago-smart-alec-face.

Kak Teh said...

kay, I worry about that too - not remembering what to say. Its at the tip of the tongue and within a split of a second - gone! That is why when I am emceeing, I write down, even if i dont read it - just something I can fall back on.

mekyam, did you know that I had to go to dictionary.comto look that up?

Two nights in a row, I slept after subuh, or shd that be two mornings in a row. AG found me sprawled on the carpet in front of heater in living room, with laptop still on.
Hah - now am having tough time catching up with beauty sleep.

Kak Teh said...

mamasita said...

Ummi365 said...

gittewww yerrr.. salammmz

Anonymous said...

I'm not sure about cringe moments but I do remember walking into the ladies' once at a cineplex, so engrossed was I with my text message that I didn't see where I was going...

I ran like a bat out of hell, I can tell you that. :P

Kak Teh said...

chahya, yes!

mekyam, oooh only five hours behind...let me seee. am still awake - its 0143 here.

mamasita, legalising it? You mean it is now banned? hehe! yes, when I go back, puteri and I will do a double act of mrs spoonerisma and mrs malaprops.

Kak Teh said...

ummi, cerita pasal kasut tu ada lagi. My sister went to meet her bakal son in law when the tumit came off - jauh daripada kedai dan segalanya. Jadi, when the bakal son in-law first saw bakal mother in law, dia ingat mak mertua dia capek. sebelah kasut tak ada tumit.
en_me, yes gitewww and salam to you too.

Queen Of The House said...

Adoi la Kak Teh, awat dok seksa orang macam ni?

Last night your spoonerism jangkit kat I. My daughter goreng karipap, terlalu garing. So I was looking at it thinking "Hmmmm, hangit .... sampai hitam". What came out was "Awat karipap ni 'hingark' sangat?" ..... and the kids sampai tersembur dok gelakkan I :O

Karipap tu 'hingark' sebab sakit kena goreng sampai garing kot, they said.

(for those who don't know, *hingark* is Kedah-speak for bising)

Ya lah, the word verification thingy is really sinister ... this time it's "waillar".

Kak Teh said...

QOTH, memang spoonerism ni niece selalu marah kat I. the last time she was with me, she said to her mother who was driving, why are you taking the rong loute (long route).
Fatimah abu bakar kata kat I - when we were driving she had to find a par cark. WE do that and still understand each other.

so, kalau karipap tu tu hingark, kak teh faham.

Kenny, I have done that before in KL. Friends of mine were dilly dallying at Terminal 4, then there was an announcement for passengers. They all rushed uo the escalator and straight to the toilet. The entrance is similar...i think.

D.N.A.S said...

Wah, my afternoon is merrier after I read this.

Anyway, pinggan Durex tu mahal tak kalau nak beli satu set? Hahahahaha!

Ezza Aziz said...

kak Teh,
saya ketawa sampai leluar air mata baca entry akak ni..apalagi cerita yang last tu....

satu hari ceria pada saya. Thanks kak for sharing your story...

Kak Teh said...

DNAS, pinggan tu tahan lama dan gerenti tak pecah.Tapi yang ini boleh basuh dan pakai balik. Ada bunga! hahaha!

ezza, kak teh tak sabar nak dengar cerita ezza! Cepat laaa.

wahaza extra said...

Kak Teh; Wrong ballroom? - Must be kak teh start wondering after this, I've to do nip/tuck if they all can look that young.. hahaha;
I don't know if anyone had the same cringe moment like this, some shop they have this like PULL & PUSH, one day I went to a tailor shop and I start like PUSH and PULL the door and it won't open (at first I thought it was the magnet) and curse the shop owner, and I push again till all her windows showcase start falling down; and she giving sign it was SLIDE to the left! I just walk off and never come back;

Mama Rock said...

hahaha, kak teh...i did what you did too except I was in a public bus singing to the song Jolene by Olivia Newton John and when it came to the high note, only me going solo...couldn't get off at the next stop coz it was still along way home ..LOL!

Kak Teh said...

wahaza, push and pull always defy the link I put at the bottom of the current entry and you can see how bad I am.

mamarock, hahahaha!! I can just imagine!! adoi...apa kata orang sebelah?

ummisara said...

Kak Teh,

i ingat crita durex / duralex tuh...hahahhahaha

Wan Nordin Wan Hussin said...

The flip flop and Durex incidents are still hilarious, although I’ve read them before. Just read your Ode to Abang Malaya in Dec. 2006 for the first time. My oh my, Jalan Riong must be a happening place in those days. The place to be, in the company of towering and colourful personalities, rising stars and starlets, household name journalists, etc.

I have another cringe OTT moment that I haven’t told people yet, which happened when I was a bachelor. In those days, our TV ads were prim and proper, unlike these days when the copy writers come up with a scene involving a Mak Cik teasing to the Pak Haji so coyly “Kopi Tongkat Ali dah siap, Bang”.

There was this ad that puzzled my mother endlessly. The real product was not illustrated, neither how to use it. I think only the packaging was shown with this lame predictable line “tampax – tuala pelembap wanita yang bla bla bla”.

Strangely, my mother, after watching the ad, had this habit of asking me, only when I was alone with her, and not in mass gathering: Tuala pelembap wanita tu apa?

Now, a father of three, I know how to answer her without cringing: Ala, macam pampers budak tu. But in those days, I was at my wits end to fend off her question. Do you think she was acting dumb, and teasing me?

Wan Nordin Wan Hussin said...

Oops sorry your seloka to Abang Malaya was posted in Nov 2006.

Iskandar Syah Ismail aka DR Bubbles said...

Hehehehe...dena punya cringe moment memang funnylah!

Ms B said...

KT dearest,

I've shared my moments. Probably i'm in the same boat as AG. *rotfl*

Kak Teh said...

edelweiss, that durex/duralex thing is something i can never forget. Nasib baik di kalangan kawan-kawan lama and not kawan baru or at an a formal dinner.

GUiKP, oh that Balada to Abang Malaya was written sometime ago. Enjoyed it very much.
anyway, when my mother visited us yonks ago, those days x rated movies were screened at any time , and there's no warning. so you can imagine when certain scenes appeared, both of us had to rush for the remote control. Imagine us cringing!

Kak Teh said...

Dr Bubbles, call lah dena - she's got a daughter now!

Ms B, i know, I know!!!

wanshana said...

Kak Teh,

You're right - we have to share our cringe moments. So, here goes -

Ayah and I were out for teh tarik with a group of friends (about 4-5 couples altogether) a few years back when the conversation turned to how not compatible some couples are, and me and my big mouth decided to cerita about my brother's wife who could be quite childish sometimes because of the huge age gap between them - 19 years to be exact. And I joked saying that he was a "cradle snatcher". Everybody went quiet suddenly. Only then I realized that the gap between one of the couples there at the table was 21 years. He was 42, she was 21.

AWKWARD moment, I tell you. I felt like I wanted to die there and then!

God, I'm still cringeing now!

Kak Teh said...

aiyoooo, laidet I orso daiiiiii!!

here's mine. The day after Citi's concert at RAHall, a famous songwriter rang me and said, how was the concert? I said, it was good, i enjoyed it, BUT, BUT I said, the opening song was so slow.
Then she said: that's my song. I wrote it for her! adoiiiiiiiii!!
although we were 8000 miles apart, i felt like i want to disappear.

But thanks for sharing yours.

tireless mom said...

Dear Kak Teh

You are so very funny. Rasa nak pecah pecah perut. As for me, my cringe moment and I think for many people out there, kan in some places, the sign Male and Female at the rset rooms tu seakan akan sama right, especially like KL ConVec. In my hurry to ease, I accidentally rushed to the Gents, and I said Wo... canggih lah tempat ni, in the Ladies pun ada urinal. Hmm Hmmm, a loud cough... OMG and just guess how the rest of the story goes.... :O

Kak Teh said...

Tireless Mom, I have done that before too - do KL Sentraal. Bersembang sampai tak sedar masuk dalam gents. Nasib baik tak ada orang but bertembung dengan someone coming in as we were rushing out.

zaitgha said...

kak tehhhh.....ha ha ha you are mean....ppl always say that i have a contagious laugh but today my laughter was just loud and long ....ha ha ha....dah nangis dah ni.... thank you for sharing

Kak Teh said...

zaitgha, kan kak teh kata I cant be laughing or cringeing alone! And its fun when we can laugh at ourselves with others. Thanks.

Unknown said...

Kak Teh,

Thanks for sharing your cringe moments with us. Really made my morning *sniggers*

I recently came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I don't know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.


ms hart said...

Kak Teh, trust YOU to come out with these extremely hilarious stories!! Macam orang tak centre I depan pc ni!!! woahahahaha... Your scene kat bank tu so familiar! Memang, kadang2 dalam pada nak maintain anggun gitu, tiba2 ada aje skrip buatan sendiri yang buat rasa nak die standing kat situ jugak kan?!! Hancur!! hehehe

Mine - masa student, first time tidur hotel, kat Medan, dgn my aunt and grandaunt. Pagi2 lagi phone bunyi. I picked up and the voice on the other end was saying 'Morning call!'. I quickly put the receiver down and knock knock knock the bathroom door. "Ngah, ada orang call," I said. My aunt kelam-kabut keluar, and terus angkat receiver tu. "Hello, hello?" "Tak de pun?" I said, "Eh, tadi ada. Dia kata 'morning call'," bersungguh-sungguh I convinced my aunt sebab takut kena marah! My aunt punyalah gelak sampai tak keluar suara!! Sampai nak terburai kot bath-robe dia!!! "Morning call tu sebab reception staff tu kejutkan kita. Angah dah pesan dia.." I was like, "Mati lah I..sampai ke tua lah my aunt jual cerita ni!!"

Wan Nordin Wan Hussin said...

Oh poor poor Kak Teh and AG. I can imagine both of you cringing. I don't want to imagine what would happen if budak-budak sorok the remote.

Roti Kacang Merah said...

kak teh, my email! my email!

tak sabar, neiiii *rubbing hands* hehe

Daphne Ling said...

Hi Aunty Teh!


Oh gosh! I just had my own cringe moment...I was laughing myself silly in the cafeteria and clutching my tummy...;)

Oh my...The one with your daughter was superb! And Durex plates, oh wahlau!


I just had my psyc-lecture on Freudian slips...


;) *Wink*

n.i. said...

kak teh,
i hv been silently reading ur blog and obviously this comment will break the silence... *lol* i definitely can't stop myself from commenting... sooo funny!

my cringest moment of all:
when my husband was trying to coax my 5 yo son to bathe on his own on the basis that he is all grown up... my son replied: "tapi mama pun mandikan ayah, ayahkan dah besar!"

We were definitely speechless and malu of course!

Kak Teh said...

Aida, glad to share them with you and how about sharing yours with us?

susan, you read? How's the insurance sales going?

ms hart, haha - my husband has answered the phone many times when it is just an alarm! haha...well, masa mengantuk, kan?

Kak Teh said...

GUiKP, masa tu tak ada anak-anak lagi. Mak bapak lah yang kena cari remote or rush to switch off the tv.

roti, kak teh dah hantar, dapat tak?
and hope you like it.

Kak Teh said...

daphne dear, freudian slips i have a plenty and dont get me started on those. Hope you are well. sent you an email yesterday.

n.i, oh noooooo! did he say that in front of others? I have one like that and in front of many people in a restaurant. I gave him a peck on the cheeks and he said: no, kiss me like how you kiss daddy! Hmmmmmm!

Wan Nordin Wan Hussin said...

The other doctors in the rooms adjacent to mine might be thinking that I LOL because I'm so chuffed today, with no inkling that I've actully just read your latest comment here.

Kak Teh said...

GUiKP-shhhh, dont tell anyone!

jabishah said...

Kak Teh,
Hahaha... I like the one abt signature & your hubby. Talk abt Durex & Duralex... Dolu2 when I first got my menstrual I was kinda proud telling ppl."Tak boleh sembahyang.. period" but one fine night masa kenduri at my grands' I tercakap "Ja pregnant" instead of "Ja period". That was the night the` word period banned by my mom. I had to use "haid"...hehehe.

Kak Teh said...

ja, that is serious!! hahahaha!!!
pengsan tak mak you?

Ada sekali kak teh tunggu bas di London with my husband. I must have been missing home, sebab when my husband said: ha tu bas tu nak pi mana?
I said , pi Malaysia !

Alang said...

Salam kak Teh,

*lol!* Zu tak berhenti ketawa sampai few auditors kat belakang ni, ingat kepala Zu dah tak berapa sihat. Memang lawak betul la.

Durex?.. nasib baik tak "DUMEX".. kan lagi haru.. hahahha

Kak Teh said...

zu, thanks! hehe, memang tak senonoh, kan?

Alang said...

Kak Teh..

Ingatkan bila dah abis baca boleh berenti gelak.. tapi bila baca komen, bertambah gelak lagi ada..
Zu pun sebenarnya kena juga bab signature tak nampak tu.. muahaha..

Zu dah tak boleh nak terus baca comments, nanti kang pecah perut.. sampai menangeh dah ni.. muahha..

Kak Teh said...

zu, kalau nak gelak pecah perut lagi, pi baca puteri kamaliah. Siap tissue, nak sumbat mulut.

Alang said...

Kak Teh, Zu rasa macam dah nak balik rumah..dah pukul 10.30 mlm dah ha.. tapi my eyes dah tak boleh alih dari computer screen.. kena baca sampai abeh...

muahhaha.. adoii.. sakitnya perut chek..

chinta said...

kak teh, miss you! sihat? dtg edinburgh last august?

my cringe moment was just recently when I went to see a dentist. There was no one at the reception desk so I pressed a bell to ring them and then suddenly the bright room turned dark. Then I learned I actually switched off the light instead rang a bell.

Immigrant Mom said...

Hmm.... lemme see....

1) Have been caught singing in the canteen
2) Have gotten into the wrong car. Stupid gov cars all look alike!
3) Do people STILL get the wrong houses? This is such a classic and never fails to amuse me.
4) Have sputtered all my drink at a dinner party when my friend's husband who tried to say that his wife tried to say selection, selection, ended up saying "ERECTION"!

n.i. said...

kak teh,
luckily (alhmdulillah), the dialogue took place within the 4 walls of our room... but I suspect my maid heard my son's voice... :-)

Kak Teh said...

Chinta, yes, i did! But it was raining and cold! just a short visit. thanks for sharing your story.
We visited an old man di cardiff - he was living alone. so, my husband nampak this string and thought it was the switch - pulled it and then the police came!!! it was an alarm connected straight to the police station.

n.i,, haha tu pun dah cukup dah...mungkin semua bibik community dah tau.

gemahatibernyanyi said...

Durex plates?
*gelak nak jatuh kerusi*

I pernah masuk salah kereta (same color, same model with my sister's), lucky the driver was a lady, so tahap malu tu kurang sikit, I politely apologized and got out.

Kak Teh said...

gemahatibernyanyi, ahaaaa! kak teh pun macam nak jatuh kerusi masa tu tapi kena maintain cool!!!

masuk salah kereta seems to be a common thing. Kawan kak teh pun macam tu..he got into a lady's car. Apanya pompuan tu tak menjerit!

Hazia said...

Yang pasal husband drove ahead tu - I heard similar incidents of people getting into wrong cars, happened to me once too, it was raining heavily ok - but tak pernah la pulak kena tinggal terus. LOL!

Argus Lou said...

Kak Teh, I think cringe moments are designed by the universe to keep us down to earth. They remind us we're human and we err in so many ways, so we forgive one another as well as have a good laugh at our own expense.

Kak Teh said...

hazia, i dont know what I'll do if i get into another person's car! Entah pengsan terus!

Argus, I think you are right. It is a good sign that we can laugh at ourselves while others are laughing at us.
