a) i had a rather awkward situation today. you see, one of the things i enjoy doing is petting stray cats. today i saw a cat, i tried petting him, he kept walking away slowly, so i followed him, he walked off slowly again, it went on and on for a while until i noticed a few aunties were watching me. my right hand was still in a weird position of trying to pet the cat. the cat ran off finally, giving me a glance before he disappeared. the aunties were still staring at me.
b) everytime i am on set to shoot dramas, i will always go through a situation where none of the actors know who i am. when they asked me works i have done in the past, i will always refer to theater stuff i've done. they would usually have this blank expression, like every ounce of interest had been sucked out from their skin. i will always go back to refer to pisau cukur - which i hate. the conversation will always end up with them saying "oh..." and me going off smoking under a tree somewhere.
c) it makes me happy when people want to take photos with me. however some situations are awkward like for instance when a girlfriend wants to take a picture and her boyfriend is operating the picture taking apparatus. i wonder what goes on in the boyfriend's mind. it gets even more awkward when the boyfriend then wants a photo.
d) sometimes when i watch plays, i would cringe looking at actors doing contrived actions like 'trying' to show how angry they are. sometimes it gets awkward when they were staring at me while doing that. i feel naked.
e) one of the weirdest moments in my career as a theater actor was during the staging of romeo and juliet back in 2004. it was a special performance, performed in front of the crown prince, raja nazrin. i played romeo. and during the climatic moment where romeo was about to dunk poison from the vial, this romeo amazingly waved the vial dramatically when he was trying to open the vial. the vial flew over rolling down the stage right in front of the crown prince. all that was left was a vial cap. that romeo drank poison from a vial cap and wished he really died. of course he didn't.
some people think i am weird. but then again, i don't think i am that weird, at least to me.
