The Accent Did It...

I had the pleasure of meeting up with Nikolett of Better Than Coffee again after our long 9 month separation! :P We only got to hang out for a couple of hours but it was fun nonetheless.


We stopped for fries and gelato here. We had such a giggle about the name "Bojangles" because it's more of a Southern name but they were serving Italian gelato, and the owners/all workers were Chinese. Haha!



What's a Kym + Nikolett meet-up without jumping photos! This time, we attempted to make it look like we were levitating (we've graduated from just "ordinary" jump shots)... we didn't quite perfect it but i'm sure we'll get it right the next time we see each other! :)


We attempted a D-I-Y photo of both of us with the above view in the background (you know, where you awkwardly stretch out your arm and take a photo of yourself) and guys walking by kept asking us if we wanted them to take the photo! It was funny b/c at one point, 2 guys (i won't say the race to avoid offending anyone) came up to us and said...

"Laaaadddiiiiesss, want us to take your photo?

....in a really creepy manner. We just looked at each other, back at them, and said "uhhh.. no, it's okay, we're good."About 5 seconds later, a British guy and his buds walked up to us and Brit guy just kind of came up to us with command and made the gesture as if he was taking a picture as a way of letting us know he was offering to take the picture. I guess we were quite mesmerized by his hotness that we didn't "get it". He then said, in his british accent, "let me take your photograph". We agreed (and giggled). As they walked away, the other two creepos who asked to take our photo walked by us again and probably saw that we allowed someone else to take our photo. Haha! I felt a little bad... but remembered how creepy they were. They had an accent too... but it didn't quite cut it as much as the guy with the British Accent. ;)

What is your favourite accent?

Hi kym,

I like british accent ;)

The photo stuff happens on me, too. I feel too bad when the person i asked for a photo didn't do a great job and asked another person nearby for another shot. haha But I gotta do this to get a keepsake photo.

you know, sometimes i use self timer for fun but i don't want others to think that i can't ask anyone to take a pic because i am enjoying doing that. haha

I think I need to get out and have some fun. Looking at yours is just so invigorating.

Btw, I love the Italian and Australian accents ... former work-hazard.

Hmmm, I like mid-western accents and I really liked the flight attendent's accent on one of our in-country flights in Panama. I enjoyed her announcements in Spanish and English. =)

Tessa Tham said...

Ahhh I love the Aussie accent. That's prob what gets me. OH and the Brit of course ;) The one accent that people find cool/unique is the Singaporean one.. but I beg to differ LOL. AND I'm Singaporean. For shame I know hahaha.

MizzJ said...

Ooh yes, Brit accents are definitely hot! I like a good spanish accent as well.

Dana said...

Being from NC the 'Bojangles' that you went to just killed me! What's a Bojangles without fried chicken?!

Sad I tell you - sad.

And I have a deep fondness for Irish accents :)

Haha this is hilarious, I can imagine your reactions :D

I guess I'm lucky since I get to talk to British people all the time in my line of work? :) Understanding the Harry Potter movies isn't a problem any more hahahaha! ;D

Nikolett said...

It was SOOOOO fun meeting you, even if it was just a couple of hours. Ahh, we got to encounter so many accents! And I think I was mostly shocked that people offered to take pics - here in Ontario you have to badger people to take a photo, no one offers (though maybe it's just 'cause we're both HOT STUFF haha).

We'll definitely perfect the levitating photo next time! :D And as for accents? Hmms, definitely anything from the UK, and I guess Hungarian now too ;)

Meream said...

Hahahaha! I laughed hard. Poor guys (the first batch). :D

And my answer to your question: Scottish. And French speaking English. :D

Bunnie said...

British and Australian!!! :) OMG so yeah. I'm slow. I just msged you on What'sApp. CONGRATS!!!!! 8 months later!!!!! :) :) :) :) xoxoxo all the best to you two :)

Little Miss Tiara said...

oh my! so envious of you two meeting each other agaiin!!! >O< me wanna be there toooooo!!! *whines*

anyway, lol... oh my poor guy with creepy accent... maybe they tried too much not to be creepy o.O which ended up being even creepier (and just how many times I wrote creepy already?)

I love british accent, like of course, i think everyone does. I love listening to lily allen's songs because even when she sings she still has her british accent X)

and I love french accent, their R are so cute, haha... although sometimes it's hard to understand english in french accent ;P

themagickbox said...

Basically any accent from that corner of the world. :D

sugarmouse said...

i love most (if not, ALL) accents! i find that there are some that i simply like hearing just because it's utterly amusing! (not like, in a bad insulting/offending way but in a cute, omg that's so funny! way)

if only i had a really cool accent.
