Gender Bender

Ahhhh the CNY holidays. How i wish you would last another week. I feel well rested although i have to finish up my acrylics. Gotta make the most of my remaining 3 days.

Anyways, lately i'm getting alot of the "you look like a girl" thingy again. Hair length aside, are my features really lady-like? i mean i purposely left my moustache and for-what-passes-off-as-goatee to show that i'm a GUY. Even my broader shoulders should scream guyliness. But i guess that can be easily overlooked since i'm quite thin and possess slender fingers of an artist. Come on i even dress like a slop with t-shirts and short pants/jeans all the time.

It wasn't so bad about a year or so before, when i was still working out at the gym. At least at that time i had some mass to gloat about. I'm currently leeching off my bro's gym pass during the weekends but it won't be enough to rebuild what i lost. So i'll just have to live with it lol. I don't mind getting mixed up as a girl actually but i bet the other party would dearly want to decimate me from the face of earth for parading myself as such (unintentionally).

So just for amusement of you dear readers, i'll recap some of the highlights of those moments.

I was manning a doujin booth at a comic convention, wearing a cap and all when a potential customer stopped by to take a look at the wares present. I looked up from my sketching and prepared to serve. When i spoke the girl suddenly was taken aback, and started giggling to herself while mumbling "I thought you were a girl". I gave my usual smile and laughed along. This one i understand the mix up because 1) the booth i was manning would look like what a girl group would be setting up, with pinks and flowery art and all thanx to my doujin mates. 2) i was wearing a cap so it's understandable to get confused.

I was at Sunway Pyramid looking for a prank gift of a spoon for a friend's birthday, when the shopkeeper of a stall near Ace Hardware approached me and said "Miss can i help you" only to realise mere seconds later that i am a guy. Ended up shopkeeper apologized profusely which i merely just laughed and brushed the comment aside.

I was getting a slurpee at one of the 7-eleven's near TOA, and when i was paying for the drink and chatting with my friend, the lady attending to me suddenly laughed and said "I thought you were a girl until you spoke" to which i gave my usual response. It's always about the voice that lets them know eh? does that make me eligible for a Thai entertainer now? without the works and all.

There were several times when i joint my bro for gatherings with his friends, when i am mistaken for his girlfriend to which they will start off with: 1) "Chun! from the car window just now i thought who was that hawt chic together with your bro!" 2)" Chun! you cheat my feelings. From the back you look like a chic. I thought your bro finally got himself a girlfriend".

Years back when i was in Ipoh visiting a friend, we went dining at one of the famous ngar-choi-kai restaurants. The drink lady comes over takes order, and when it was my turn asks "Leng lui oi yam meh ar?" (what do you want to drink lenglui) To which i turn my head and she corrects herself immediately and changes the term to "lengchai" while laughing.

A very recent case was yesterday when i went visiting to some of my friend's place. My friend's grandpa mistook me for somebody's wife...To which the mother of my friend came telling me later and joked about it. lolwut? wife material i am now?

Best is when i walk into a guy's toilet in shopping complexes sometimes and receive funny reactions from the people walking out of it, taking second glances before they exit, or look taken aback. Even those within gave me double looks as if i'm at the wrong place. xD

I have plenty more stories back during my Monash days, about how invigilators got cheated, friends even. But i think that's enough for now. Things like these certainly makes my life more interesting hahaha. Still it's a bit depressing to know that i lack guyliness on the outside orzlll

To conclude, i'm a guy that is lesbian 8D
Tres bien.


  1. haha..i also do not know got some thing like this..but for me,you are 100% a guy lal even your hair is very long and you are slim..but face is 1005 is like guy...atleast the first time we meet,i do not call you miss kai...

  2. To tell the truth: during the first time I saw your back, I'd very much expected a bishie. I don't know why (til now still dont know) but something told me you're a guy lol And no I'm not trying to say that you're not bishie and got disappointed (there's a reason why I like Hirako Shinji 8D )Well, good thing that you dont hate the fact bout being mistaken ^^ just like how I used to be mistaken as a ah-boy~~ bah~

  3. I was at a restaurant, wearing a pretty blouse and jeans and I still had my shoulder-length hair but one waiter from some other southeast Asian country kept calling me 'sir'.

  4. =3=;;; hrmm... well first time I saw you, you were kinda buffed so the word "girl" didn't even cross my mind. Maybe alot of ppl saw you from your back first... 8D;;; that's why... maybe?

    Though I had those cases too back when I lack curves and had a very boy-ish harcut. People would call me "boy" or "Abang" =w=;;; so yeah. don't worry.
