Take A Look Around, Dickhead!

What is this ‘professional look’ anyway? If you are professional – lawyer, engineer, doctor, architect and etc. you are supposed to have this certain look and other than that you are not ‘professional’ enough? You are expected to carry certain image that so called a proper look for the line you are working. Is it really necessary? Why?

Since I shaved my head and keep this bald head image, I received a lot of comments from the people around me. Then, to add to the current bald head image, some of them know that I have a tattoo on my back, and I pierced my lower lip and I wear things like rings on my fingers and bracelet on my wrist. Not very long ago, when I still have my hair, I went for a perm. I even dyed my hair few times after I started working. Not a very ‘normal’ look for an engineer heh? Here are some funny (to me) comments and questions I received pertaining to my ‘look’.

– Your boss is okay with your look? (referring to my bald head)

– You can go out to meet client with that look? (referring to my bald head again)

– Do you wear that stud to work? (referring to the stud below my lips)

– Engineer looks like that? (referring to my curly, over the top, or coloured hair)

– If I am your boss, I will not hire you to work with your bald head, pierced lip and tattoo on your back.

– You look more like a VCD seller.

– Why you shaved your head? Sart luin? (broken hearted?) Frustrated? Why?

I also have few work shirts which probably to some people the ‘design’ and colour not suitable for an engineer?? This part I do not get it until now. It was a comment by a senior engineer where I work before. He was commenting on my stripe, dark purple shirt. WTF?

Not that I was offended because I know some people are quick to judge. Just to clear some things on my side:

1. I do not wear the stud to work. Probably never do it in this part of the world where people are so hype up and judgmental over a piece of metal ball under your lips.

2. I do not have any visible tattoos (yet..) so people do not know that I have it if I do not tell or show. I definitely will not show it to my boss or colleagues, but if they get to know about it from somewhere, too bad. What is a piece of drawing(s) on my body has to do with my capabilities at doing my work?

3. Working attire, I think as long as I stick to the office wear, what colour, stripes, cutting should be my personal choice. As long as I do not wear singlet or hot pant to work. Just because you wear boring, stupid looking shirt because you think it is an ‘engineer look’ I should follow suit? Please.

4. I do not see having a bald head is a problem. There are many bald uncles in the office, on the streets, they are everywhere but nobody complains. Just because I am young and yet to reach that old fart stage where you will have receding hairline, hair loss, diminished testosterone hormone resulting in ugly looking bald shiny head, I cannot opt to have that ugly look bald head now? Just treat me as one of the ugly looking shiny bald head uncle that still look young and horny, capisce?

5. Having a bald head is that bad? Must went through some kind of depressing, heart wrenching trauma and suffering then you are allowed to shave your head? Oh, something must be wrong with the guy that he shaved his head? So fine if I do not look good enough sporting a bald head like Michael Scofield or Lex Luthor, so yes I do not look like one of your often fantasized sexiest bald men, but does it matters? Leave me with my fugly looking shiny bald head shall we? It is getting too much attention it more that it should get, so why don’t we talk about my dick size now? ?

Ps: I am tired of people talking about my bald head.

Pss: Please talk about my dick size. Speculate it if you want.

Psss: I am not referring to any individual out there reading this so please do not think this post is all about you, or because of what you said. You are not that significant to me, you are nothing. Jangan perasan lebih. I just need to rant. That’s it.

Pssss: It is fun to observe how people think what a person you are because of how you look, dress. In a way they will not quite understand you if you do not want them too. Uber cool defense mechanism. Keep them crawling in the dark.

    What the F*CK?

    Long ago I had a very long hair. My dad (who was my boss) complained. Engineers are smart and neat, you dont represent one. What’s the purposed of having a long hair?

    I said, Nabi Muhammad has long and curly hair. He stuttered then took off.

    I mean come on la! All this is just a state of mind. Dress like what also, if deep down you are a shitty brat, then you’ll be known for your shitty bratness not for your good looks.

    Liddat also cannot paham. Meh aku sekeh skit.


  11. bongkersz wrote on May 8, 2008 at 5:31 pm

    Exactly dude, if you are a shitty smelly brat, how much perfume you put on, you are still smelly like shit!!!! :vangry:

    Sekeh dude, jangan tak sekeh.. 😀 😀


  12. nono wrote on May 8, 2008 at 7:43 pm

    I remember reading a post in blinkdagger.com (authored by two engineers), they were writing about almost the same thing too. And what I can say is that, don’t worry bong, although you’re not as smart as Wentworth Miller, or although you are more likely to look like Eric Leong(muahahahahahahaahha!) but I believe you are able to carry yourself with confidence! That’s why appearance doesn’t really matter to you as long as you can do what your job needs you to do…

    Biarkan mereka dengan kata-kata mereka..

    p.s bila lu mau kawen dengan angeles aaa?

    I see no problem with your appearance at the workplace and outside. People always have things to say lah… lidah tidak bertulang…

    i have met u and i think u r a professional watever the look. yr BM post are fantastic as u express yrself very well in BM


  15. d_sticks wrote on May 8, 2008 at 10:38 pm

    i share your sentiments bongster…been there..done that..bought the tshirt.

    but……over the years…i’ve realised one thing,… old fellas will always be old fellas, and they look for small things like…Eh…you saw what shirt he’s wearing ah?…aiyoo…that day ah…i saw his shirt came down a bit ah…got tattoo you know!!!…aiyoo..we hire gangster already la…

    i’ve heard those comments, i don’t give a shit. As an engineer, i don’t see how by having a tattoo, or a nose stud, or ear ring, makes any difference to how i perform in the office.

    unfortunately, that’s not how the way things work in this world apparently…apparently…you need to give a shit about what people think…..



  16. mrcoolku wrote on May 8, 2008 at 11:03 pm

    if i am ur tauke i will shift you to other departments such as “ah long” department. in the meanwhile u can go engineer them if they refuse to pay. lolz…

    most people just judge people with first impressions. only those who really get long with you will understand you. as the time pass, they will realize what on earth are you!:)


  17. Sarawak Laksa wrote on May 8, 2008 at 11:30 pm

    Spot On. You took the words right out of my mouth. Unfortunately, some people … (correction, it should be) ‘a lot of’ people who live in this part of the world are very quick to judge others by their appearances. This holier-than-thou attitude angers and sickens me just as much as you.

    People like to think that when a woman wears a low cut dress, she is branded as ‘easy’ or ‘improper’?

    These ‘people’ should travel to US/Europe and take a good look around there. They will get a huge shock! Most women in summer don’t even bother to wear bras! 😛

    p/s: keep the bald head. hv more tattoos! love them all!


  18. angeles sayang bongkersz wrote on May 9, 2008 at 1:27 am

    Mmmm… *checks out yr hidung and jari*
    5-6 adalah… kakaka…

    1) I think your stud is sexily sexy.
    2) Your tattoo makes me wanna ………..
    3) Office wear? So far, all yr baju looks ok. No baju lagi ok kot..
    4) Botakness enhances yr features 😉

    OK, by now u must melamar me liao 😆

    “People like to think that when a woman wears a low cut dress, she is branded as ‘easy’ or ‘improper’?”

    sad to say, yes.. i heard many comments around me saying the girl is ‘hiao’/loose, easy..

    if we live to please everyone around us, it will be such a tough life to live, doubt many can survive that long 🙄

    I shave my head too, twice and the most boring-est question to answer is, “why?” They always assume i frust lah, gangster la… apala….

    my standard answer?

    1. Jimat shampoo.
    2. Pray for wolrd peace.


  35. mel wrote on May 10, 2008 at 12:54 pm

    rofl. dude.. thts just common la.. people have perceptions of how people are supposed to presentthemselves. haha for my language class, this dude oso an engineer. he did the lobe widening lor.haha and he is like yeah, i go work lidat, so what? thts why ppl ask him.

    anyway professionalism is too.. overrated.. people keep talkin bout the image given but their own work ethics and behavior is zero professional in the firstplace. I guess I lucked out coz the most that my partner said to me was.. O_O Doesnt it hurt?!?! Haha. tht is just for the earrings I have. And mind u, just normal ear piercings yo. But I do have a visible tattoo on wrist but then she just gave up on saying anything. Its easily coverable by watch oso wat

    anyway.. 😛 botak – less shampoo.. but please dont have flaky skin.. else.. scary man.. 😛 but dont oil it as well.. *snickers* remind me of a movie I watch where the botak dude oil his head 😛

  38. Here we go wrote on Dec 9, 2008 at 2:46 am

    ZZZZZZZZ yeahh i HAVE problems like that, ever since having freedom (from bloody constrictive highschool) i have, dyed my hair bright red, straightened my long hair (i’m a guy), painted my nails black, and got an ear pierced, and kept a long tail (hair) which i dyed golden.

    Unfortunately Malaysia is still populated by too many judgmental nincompoops who will look purposely and judge superficially. They join the conformist herd, rather than express themselves. JUDGE PPL by THEIR PERSONALITY AND ACHIEVEMENTS DUMBO not LOOKS

    One time i spoke to a girl (my nails were painted black, and hair red and gold), after 5 minutes she tells me, you don’t seem like an Emo and you’re pretty nice and normal. While i was smiling back at her, i just couldn’t decide if i should just punch her face in or not for being the judgmental conforming superficial pig she was. Thnx god i’m nice

    btw my dick is waaaaaaay bigger than yours, LOL ^^ *perasan


  39. bongkersz wrote on Dec 9, 2008 at 8:17 am

    Morning bro 🙂

    It’s an Asian thing I guess, regarding the looks. WTF, dyed your nails black, so you are an EMO? So, what you are working as? 😛

    Yeah, I bet your dick is waaaayyyy bigger.. ROTFLMAO!
