Of Makiko, Yoko & Digging Nose

My friends and I sometimes have these discussions in WhatApp that often leave me in splits. Ummm … I suppose laughing all alone, staring at the screen is not a sign of insanity. Anyhow, we were discussing on how to handle awkward gawking. You know the kind when a creepy guy is staring at you for whatever godforsaken reason and you are trying to avoid his gaze. 

So my lovely friend has a perfect solution {ahem start taking notes} … and I feel it’s genius.  Look at him… straight in the eye, raise your finger and start digging your nose in the grossest manner possible. Yeah that’s right!!! πŸ˜€

Reminds me of a scene from my favourite Japanese serial Seigi No Mikata, where the elder sister teaches the younger one to do this when alone, to avoid the attention of perverts. 



And this while travelling in a bus πŸ˜› It’s such a hilarious scene that I crack up every time.





I absolutely love this serial and my sister is addicted to it too, mostly because we both could relate to it … I am the evil elder sister Makiko, who makes the younger one, Yoko, run errands for her… no matter how absurd. Plus Makiko is such a kickass character that sometimes I am confused if I love her or hate her. 



You gotta watch it!!


Here’s the first episode I found on Youtube. There are just 10 or 11 episodes in all. It’s fun trust me πŸ˜€ 


I ended up watching it again.

  1. EWW! Am I the only one grossed out by this? πŸ˜‰ Probably effective but I am too much of a lady to do it, ha ha ha. Speaking of Japanese serials, there was this one called Oshin. Have you seen it? Watched it in Singapore ages ago.
