Interesting conversation

A visit to a beautician with mum over the weekend:

*The conversation took place in Cantonese*

Beautician, (B): *talking to mum* Do you want to do eyebrow embroidery? You will look much brighter and more beautiful with darker eyebrows. I’ll design the eyebrow for you for free and you decide for yourself if you want to proceed with the embroidery, which would be semi-permanent…

**Conversation Truncated, let’s go straight to the point*

B: Aunty, your daughter (me, lah) doesn’t look Chinese. Is your husband a Westerner (gwailo)?

Mum, (M): *thought she said tht simply because I responded to all her queries in English* No lah, her father is Hokkien and I am Hakka, that’s why she doesn’t speak any dialect…

B: Oh..but her features doesn’t look Chinese. She looks mix…

M: Oh?

Me, (I) : *chuckle*
