Rules Of The Game

Any resemblance to persons living or otherwise is purely coincidental.

This comic is my stab at the weirdness of the so-called 'unwritten rule'.

I'm definitely not the first to blog about how some women in Singapore (not sure about women in other countries though) use packets of tissue to 'reserve' a table at foodcourts and fastfood joints.

On some days, it's really difficult to get a seat in the foodcourt and you see these empty tables with packets of tissue on them, indicating the tables are 'reserved'. Hell. Strangely, everyone seem to acknowledge this 'rule'. Me? I have no wish to get myself embroiled in a squabble and ruin my mood to eat. But I sure hope to see someone with nothing to lose challenge these women one of these days.

The Twins Effect

Why do majority of twins (children specifically) dress the same? I've always been curious. I recently made the acquaintance of a pair of near-identical twins. The two attend the same school and not surprisingly, dress similarly too. Unable to resist, I posed the following questions to them: Why do twins tend to dress similarly? What're their thoughts about it? I was rather surprised when they told me it didn't occur to them to even think about it. They wear whatever their parents buy for them. I told them my stand that twins, although looking alike, are still two persons and have different personalities. I asked them whether they felt "out of character" dressing alike. The two shrugged their shoulders and replied they're indifferent about it.

That brings us back to "They wear whatever their parents buy for them". Why then, do parents of twins want to dress their children alike? You might say "it's easier and cheaper to buy the same clothes what...". Do you know what I honestly think? I say the parents relish on creating CONFUSION as a novelty.

Let me paint a scenario. Imagine a visit to the relatives during Chinese New Year. "Emily" and "Evelyn" are presented before the crowd and the usual "Wah! Can't tell them apart. Who's who ah?" And the parents go: "GUESS LAH!".
