the story goes like this.
once upon a time when i was having a group discussion in my class for an assignment, my classmate ask me, "Do you know Jolly Buddha?" as she showed me the golden bracelet that she wore contain small figures including the Jolly Buddha. I spontaneously answered no and she was quite astonished with my answer.
"How can you not know him? Jolly Buddha is very famous. I find that he is adorable"
She said that as she examine back the figure at her bracelet and show it back to the others.
"Sorry but I'm a muslim"
and there was silence for a few seconds among us. Krik Krik Krik
"Well that was awkward"
as one of the group members broke the silence, the discussion continued back like nothing happened.
during the process of typing this post i kept on typing jelly buddha instead of jolly buddha. that reminds me of cumi-cumi.
