Big Brother Hou, Am I so really so silly? ~ Jerry Yan


Big Brother Hou, Am I really so silly? ~ Jerry Yan

"Big Brother Hou," Jerry Yan asked, "am I really so silly?"

I've been talking about some blunders that happened during the wake these few days. Talking about blunders, I recall one story. It's inevitable that we make blunders but with the reputation of an artiste at stake, it can be especially embarrassing.

言承旭近出席了日本一個典禮,並且領了個超級偶像級的大賞。領完獎後,主辦單位善意地安排了他去名店瞎拼 、買衣服。主辦單位本來打算清場讓超級巨星瞎拼,可是大明星堅持他一貫的親民作風,不讓主辦單位這樣做。
Jerry Yan attended a Japanese ceremony recently and received a Super Idol category Award. After the ceremony, the Organizers kindly arranged for him to go shopping at a branded shop. Initially, they wanted to clear the store for him but he insisted not to. As he has always maintained that he was like any average Joe.

As this was no made public, the Organizers were cautious. On the day itself, besides the few reporters, there weren't many fans around. Or else the small store would be jam-packed.

Though everything seemed fine, our Mr. Handsome still met with problems.

"I looking around the store for a long time but I didn't see anything I'd like. But they were so friendly and it didn't seem nice that I didn't buy anything," Jerry Yan said. "But the problem is if I just buy anything, it didn't seem to be true to myself. Anyway, the fans would read the report and they might buy the same thing so I have a responsibility."

Jerry Yan's perfectionist manner shows up again. Anyway as long as something touches on perfection or responsibility, to our Mr. Handsome - shopping is no longer such a simple matter.

He took a long time, kept choosing this and that. He was on the brink of hopelessness when the Heavens showed him grace. He finally spotted a leather bag that he like a lot.

"I'm finally saved." He took to it the mirror and it looked great.

Jerry asked the Interpreter to ask the Japanese salesperson for the price.

After the salesperson heard what the interpreter said, she appeared very respectful and pointed to a man who was dressed trendily. And she further 'explained' to the interpreter. After that she ran to that man and bowed to him and pointed over to Jerry's side.

Jerry saw that man turn around, nodding politely and smiling. Our Mr. Handsome was also very gracious and he smiled and nodded as well.

"I was thinking that he should be a boss or something from the way he is dressed."

After a while, the saleslady came with the Interpreter and bowed deeply to Jerry.

"So how is it? How much is it?"

The Interpreter seemed ill at ease, after some hesitation he finally said.

"That customer over there said that he left his leather bag outside when he was trying his clothes but you took it away."

Jerry's face turned a crimson red and wished that there was a hole for him to hide.

He immediately returned the bag to the Interpreter and he gave it back to the saleslady who returned it to that man. After that man got back his bag, Jerry gave him a very deep bow. The Japanese customer was also very polite, he smile and bowed back. After all that, he left quietly without any fanfare.

The reporters that were a distance away and didn't seem to notice.

"Oh no! That was so embarressing. I even took the bag to the mirror to have a look, Big Brother Hou!" Jerry was laughing at himself. "Do you think I was really so silly?"

我點了點頭。I nodded my head.

But it's not that our Mr. Handsome was so very silly but I felt that the Japanese customer was so gracious, low-key and very considerate in his manner. That is truly very gentlemanly and something worthy of emulation.
