Sir or Ah Boy?

Bonjour, peeps! Today, I was having a Science and Technology Literation Competition in SEAMEO RECSAM, Penang (To be honest,I never knew this place exist until I joined this competition). xp

Basically, we have to perform a 10 minutes drama for this freaking competition and it was not any easy job, okay. We were the sixth group to perform and it went on like this. Five groups had to perform before break and the next five groups will perform after the break, so it means my team is the first group to perform after the break but fortunately, we were let to have our break once the fourth group had finished as the time was delayed due to the long speech by the honoured guests, so we became the second group to perform after the break! Yay!

We were the last group to go out for break because we haven't test with the sound effect yet and we wanted to make sure that our power point is compatible with the Microsoft in the laptop provided by the organizer. We were in rush actually because if we didn't test the sound effect quickly, we could be late for break. If we are late for break, we will have no time to eat. If we have no time to eat, we will be starving during our performance. If we are starving during our performance, our performance will be affected. If our performance is affected, we will face a higher chance of losing the competition. Sound serious, right?

So when we reached the table where the laptop was put, a bunch of guys from other school was copy pasting their files into the laptop, so we have to wait. Since we were in a rush, so I gathered my gut and asked one of the fella, "Sir, how long will you take?" Then, he answered, "Ermmm, I'm actually a student like you, so I'm not sir."

I was like, "Hey, brother! I don't know your name la. If I don't call you sir. How may I address you lah? I don't even know your age. What if I call you Ah Boy but you are older? That's worse, right? Plus, isn't 'Sir' a respectful way to address every man whom you don't know his name? Isn't it?" Of course, I only say that in my mind. Instead of a very long explanation, I just said, "Oops, sorry! It's because I don't know your name so ya!"

I don't simply call stranger by the address, 'Brother' if I'm not close to them because it's just so weird calling a stranger brother.

Gentlemen, isn't the address 'Sir' mean for every male regarding their age? I'm confused right now~ Somebody, please tell me...

Anyway, it's always a must to post a photo of our drama. If you wanna print out this photo and make it as a poster, you are always welcomed to ask for our autograph. xp

Ahem, ahem. You think you are artist, is it?
Ermmm, kind of. Hehe

Let me present to you the Drama Queens of the day!!!
