fake it !

You know when we were performing on stage, we have to put on our biggest smile. And most of the time we have to fake it, cos busy remembering the choreos and the chaos at the backstage. Bet most of the audience thought that we really dance and 'smile' at the same time. Well, that is on stage.

But when it comes to real life ( work life ), it seems that i can't control the ability to fake my smile. I was in a meeting with my client the other day, few of them. When the bigger boss started to share his story on the table, the rest of his staffs seems quite enjoying it. The smiled and laughed a few times, but i didn't. Cos i really can't find anything funny in the stories. I tried to squeeze a bit of smile, doing my best to let him know that i am listening.

I always tell the members to breath through their mouth, to create the smiling face. But it's so weird if i do it in front of them. I can have thousand and one facial expression whenever i am on stage, but i can't even fake a smile when i am really needed one. Sigh.;(

Are you a professional 'faker'?
I am talking about faking the smile ... other 'fakes' we talk next time ;p


我經常被說“皮笑肉不笑“。
但往往在關健時刻連皮都笑不出。

  3. 以前当我们站在台上,就当是出卖自尊。

    当主持宴会的时候,被人写字条说我们讲太多, 就看着字条念出别的话,为了找吃, 唯有赔笑。

    这种经验,外人哪里能体会!

  9. Rather interesting post. In retrospect, I tend to smile regardless of the situation, it's just a part of my personality but even if I find myself uninspired or entertained by someone, I still do it out of respect-- it's not fake but a courteous gesture; at least that's how I view it.
