This video features a series of "Duh Moments" or in local slang, "Abuden Moments" when people ask questions that state the obvious.
My favourite abuden moment from my favourite auntie in the video.
Boy: Hi Auntie! Watering plants ah?
Auntie: No la, I'm bathing the caterpillars.
Do you have such moments as well? I tend to ask obvious questions too. I guess that in our Asian culture, it's only polite at times to start a conversation in that manner.
On the other side of the coin, I'm also always caught in the receiving end of Abuden moments and sometimes I can't help replying in jest to people I know who can take jokes.
Scenario: Upon seeing that my hair is shorter
Friend A: Eh! You cut hair ah?
Me: No. Actually I went to the salon to lengthen it.
Scenario: Eating lunch
Friendly elder: 吃饭呵？
Scenario: Upon seeing that I'm back
Hubby: Oh, you are back?
Me: No la. You are just seeing a doppelganger of myself.
