Mom and Dad were visiting us last week. This was their first trip out of the country (not counting Singapore and Thailand) so naturally they were ecstatic about their experience.
They flew via Thai Airways and on board from KUL-BKK, Mom was seated in front of Lisa Surihani.
Yes, you hear me, Lisa Surihani the actress.
"Masa dalam flight, bantal Mama jatuh. Lisa siap tolong amikkan"
"Lisa was on phone until we were about to take off. Sampai stewardess suruh off phone. Call Yusry la tu"
More eyes rolling. I bet she listened to the whole conversation.
Then she went on telling us about some passengers trying to get Lisa's autograph and photos when they landed in Bangkok.
"Dalam bas nak ke terminal, banyak orang ambik gambar dengan Lisa. Mama saje buat taktau lepas tu tanya sorang budak ni - sape tu (sambil tunjuk Lisa)"
The fellow then answered her,
"Makcik tak kenal ke? Tu la Lisa Surihani, pelakon Malaysia. Famous tu makcik"
Know what my dearest mom replied?
"Sorry la kalau pelakon Malaysia ni makcik tak berapa kenal. Kalau pelakon Korea, makcik kenal"
Mama oh mama!
