Botak !!

Few days ago I met a colleague cum friend of mine whom I have known for years (working in the same hospital but in different department). He starts balding in young age - started to lost hair in his 20's - those male-pattern baldness aka androgenetic alopecia. Not alopecia areata nor alopecia totalis though.

Each time I meet him, "Err.. 你越来越少头发了", (which literally means he is balding) will just come out spontaneously from my mouth, like a natural reponse. (All these while, I converse in Chinese with my close friends). Few weeks didn't see him so much difference oredi. Mmm... I know balding is a sensitive issue for some guys. Abuthen, I guess he is used to that liao cos I'm not the only one who says that, and summore this was not the first time I say that to him. Should I refrain from saying that statement in the future? Old habits die hard.. :P

It's time for me to have haircut soon. Might be tomorrow? Might be Wednesday? Might be Friday. Mmmm.. Should I dye my hair at the same setting?

so bad, keep reminding ppl of their balding issue... talking about balding, one of the neighboring office got this balding guy who would spend a long long time in the toilet (we share toilet over a few offices) trying to comb his few strands of hair... at first i didn't noticed, until my colleague told me about it... :P

Bernard said...

Chen, last Monday i went to the barber-shop.. the usual aya wasn't there.. so i let the ane cut it. He asked me... "Short ah?" ..i said "ya". Usually i tell the aya "pendek" also but he knows what to do.... so.. this ane went and cut it very short liao... hehe. The next day in hospital... all the staff were looking at me one kind.

Look like i'm going to have a very cooling CNY this year.

Chen said...

bernard,
lol.. what a mishap
I guess your hairstyle must be like the supershot GI haircut liao? ;)
