there is one compliment i receive so often, "you look so cute."
sometimes specifically, "i like your bangle(this or that)".
i dunno but whenever i am complimented, i do not reply with the traditional "thank you." i usually say "oh" and something else, not even in connection with the compliment.
for example, this morning, my co-intern, complimented my skirt and i was just like "oh! i wanna go to the kitchen to do something." after leaving the scene, i felt bad that i dint even appreciate the compliment. after all the times that mumcee has scolded me to say "thank you" when i receive a gift, i still can not say it after a compliment. well, i appreciate everything given to me by saying more than "thank you"' sef apart from compliments. my shyness overtakes my response.
i walked into my office this morning, thought about this not-so-cool rxn of mine and narrowed it down to my shyness. for reals! i dunno why this shyness is now creeping out oh. i am usually the bold one amongst my friends but a single compliment, from someone who is not my close friend, makes me annoyingly self-conscious.
