Thank You

Sumandak in the house :)

Seriously, how many times do we say Thank You in our daily life. Once, twice, lots of times or never said it at all. I want to share my experience with saying Thank You :)

Thank you is an expression of gratitude

Normally, we say thank you after someone help us with something. Doesn’t matter who that someone is. It could be your spouse, brother, sister, friends, boss or the janitor...but above all, we thank God every morning for giving us the day to experience.

But you know, sometimes I get confuse when I said thank you so many times in a day. I always say the words after paying goodies I bought. Then it will struck me from nowhere like okay, why should I say that. I mean, I am the one who should said welcome right?? Hahaha... 

Same situation in the food court. I will say thanks (with a sweet smile) to the waitress after my food arrived on the table. You know what happen next? The waitress will assist you immediately if you need anything. Once, I ask the waitress if she can pack our leftover for the cats at home. She came back with a bulged plastic and said,”Miss I mix this with the food from the kitchen, just don’t tell my boss okay” I was speecless...

Then there is this my favorite vegetables seller. I visit her stall every afternoon to buy veggies. She always give me a special price, even give me a free veggies to bring home. All that act start with the words thank you (in reverse of course...haha). But it is not about the special price or free veggies, I never expect something like that in return. I think that special bound happen when you are sincere with yourself and to others.

And I just realized this yesterday

Sumandak : Anti, piro tii (Auntie, how much is this?)

Auntie : Sorringit (RM1.00)

Veggies packed, after paid the price...

Sumandak : Thank you auntie (blurted out just like that confidentaly)

Auntie : Miagal nopo... (same to you)

Do you know what is weird about it? I was supposed to say Pounsikou (thank you) and Inan (Auntie) but all this time, I’ve been dragging the english words to that obviously Dusun auntie...hahahaha. I should be ashamed of myself and I shouldn't do that. How can you preserve your own language when you mix it with another language? Sorry auntie, it won’t happen again...I promise :) 

So, there goes my story. Thank you may seem easy to say but believe me, it means a lot to the person who is being thanked. Start saying thank you as many as you can even if it just a small thing. Apprecaite more in your life...Don’t you feel appreciate when someone say Thank You to you?

Naaah, thank you for taking time to read kio...

PS : Mr. M is the only person on planet earth who loves to top up my credit and when I text him Thank You, he will text me back...Terima Kasih saja? (Just a Thank You?) Ingat percuma kah tu (who said its free?) I was like seriously?? I didn't even ask for it. Orait, he was just kidding okay...hahahaha
