Etiquette Lesson

When I was in Kolej Matrikulasi Johor, we had to take a subject called 'Dinamika Kemahiran' for one semester, that has no major exam for it. What we learned in this minor subject were etiquettes. Everything about etiquettes and lots of role play. We were taught how to greet and shake hands with people around during a social dinner, like whether should a guy held out his hand first or waiting for the girl does it first. Besides that, we also learned the fine dining etiquette and also usual makan-makan etiquette.

Our only exam was having a "Dinner Night", where we dressed nicely and when the dinner is served, teachers are around our table seeing how we scoop the soup, portion of rice in a spoon and how we placed the cutlery while stopping or finishing our food. During my time, they served us nasi beriyani. Teacher's observation around my group's table lasted for only 10 minutes.

That 10 minutes, I only eat the rice and drinking the orange juice, without touching the super hard chicken. Meh, sekali I cucuk the chicken fly away - FAILED how?

Okay, cutting the crap away. This is one thing that we discussed during one of the Dinamika Kemahiran class. It is about the right way of entering and exiting a car!

Teacher: Macam mana korang nak masuk dalam kereta? Kaki dulu ke kepala ke?

Us: Kaki dulu! *confident answer*
(Some even try to imagine the situation, act it out on their own world)

Teacher: Yeke? Itu adalah cara yang salah!

Us: Eh, biasanya masuk kaki dulu... *still confident with own answer*

Teacher: Ok, cara yang betul, kita patut masukkan punggung dahulu. Dah duduk, baru perlahan-lahan masukkan kaki...


Teacher: Macam mana pula dengan keluar dari kereta? Lepas buka pintu, nak macam mana?

Us: PUNGGUNG DULU!!! *This answer lagi super confident*

Even the teacher did the *smack head* act after we answered that..

I don't think I need to tell how, but you can try by exiting the car with your butt first...!
