A Drama During Lunch. Literally!

Haiya...! Why so noisy ma. I am trying to eat here, you are not in a TV drama!
I was having a late lunch with Alexander in the establishment near my office. While we were musing over our drinks, I noticed a chinese couple walking towards the restaurant. I was drawn to the woman especially because she was wearing the most unlikely yellow spectacles, and she had the most admirable pair of buck teeth that I have ever seen. With her was her beau, a gentleman in his early 40s. And they were particularly noisy. After a minute, they wandered away, but only to stand at the end of the shop block, before coming back again. What on earth is going on?

I commented to Alex, "You know bro, you gotta look at this Chinese couple. They are so loud, and the woman is wearing the most ridiculous spectacle that I cannot accept that this can actually happen in real life." Alex turned around while I continued, "You know, Alex, I just wanna start looking around for a crew and camera. It's like a freakin' television show, bro!" Alex chuckled, but then he looked past me and ejaculated, "Hey! There IS a crew and camera. Look, they are behind you!"
Oh, you are! Oopsie.
And damn if they were not. A couple of shops behind me was the crew with the cameraman, taking (I guess) a long shot of the scene playing out right in front of me. Hehehe. Upon closer ogling at the woman, I also noticed that the buck teeth was of course fake.

As it turned out they were shooting for a local Chinese (Cantonese)_sitcom. We stayed around for awhile, and were amused to find that Jamie, our worthy waitress, got a bit role. My back faced the camera crew so I kept disturbing Alex and asking, "Hey... hey, am I in the shot? Am I in the shot?" Alas, not.

No prose today, sunshine. Just a little drama during lunch.

i try to follow my instincts. I just don't know when it is! I need another set of instincts so I would recognise my original instincts.
