D statement of 'putting your live in d hands of others' is something that should not be taken lightly. N this is applicable whenever any of us pay a visit to d friendly neighbourhood barber too...especially when shaving comes into play. There u r...lying down [almost] n exposing your neck to a 'stranger' with a razor sharp shiny blade. Everytime...though very rare...that I undergo this ritual, I dare not closed my eyes as most of d guys did [some may even dozed off into lala land]. I know that even if something untoward happen...I wouldn't be able to do anything...but keeping my eyes wide open somehow helped me...a bit. May be just to stare 'hard' n visually warn d barber not to mess around...even tho d blade is in his hand...n just milliseconds away from your jugular.
visited d barber @ Tesco jap tadi for a gunting rambut + shaving-cum-grocery shopping session. Earlier we had tea @ Mak/Abah's place as Zana/Shahrul's family were there as well.
