My elder brother M and I graduated from NUS with PHD in statistics years ago. We then applied for the same job at a normal company and managed to get it fortunately.
The job wasn’t simple for us at start but things always get easier when we work together. All problems would be solved eventually. It would be an understatement to say that he is a valued colleague of mine. I believe he feels the same way towards me too.
However, he got 1 massive issue towards me since young and have carried on till now. He never like me putting on weight and have always wanted me to be as small as possible. As a girl, I admit that i am quite chubby but at least i have a great personality. I am never negative and generally been positive throughout my life unlike my brother.
Why do people care so much about appearance? Why do people come up with so many methods to reduce weight? Why cant people take a 2nd moment to appreciate our personality and not overlook them? One day, i finally mustered enough courage to ask my brother just why.
Me : “Kor, why are you so mean towards me when its about my weight? Why can’t… you…” I stuttered as i saw his eyes started flashing in red. After a momentarily pause, he shouted : “Variance Sigma Square, you better start losing weight before i get people to apply reduction technique on u” . He stormed off right after saying that.
Oh well, why do i even bother. At least I have a cooler name than my brother “Mean Mew Moo Mu”. Maybe one day i just split into 2 and fight him.
