Automatically, I asked "How much ?" and she replied " 500,00 dong " = RM80. Upon hearing the price, I put down the shoes and said "It's ok, Thank you" and walked away. This FAT AUNTY was unhappy and grabbed my hand while demanding me to name a price for the shoes. She kept on saying "How much you want, How much you want?".
Dad who was standing a few steps away saw and walked towards us. Dad spoke to me in Hokkien and asked me what's wrong. I was surprised that the FAT AUNTY understand Hokkien and can even speak in Hokkien. She told dad that I should give her a price for the shoes and not asked for the price and just walk away.
To my horror, this FAT AUNTY pinched my arm and mumbling in Hokkien "Don't buy, then don't ask".
In my defensed or rather natural reflexed , I pinched her back and told her off. How could she be so RUDE to a customer and simply pinched people.
We walked off.
To think back, lucky that FAT AUNTY did not bring her group of 'ji mui' (sisters) to chase after us since we were at her territory. What a horror experience !
