Some people are born a twin or in multiples. Then, there are identical twins and fraternal twins. If you are an identical twin, then you have found at least one person who looks like you. If not, then it is believed that there are 7 people who look alike on this planet called earth. Source? I'm not too sure myself!
Hence, sometimes we associate some people we personally know with another acquaintance because they look incredibly similar. For instance, a cousin to an office-mate. In more obvious scenarios, we associate celebrities with a personal acquaintance. You might have an Indian version of Tom Cruise, for example, or a Malay friend who looks like Angelina Jolie. I used to think that my junior in primary school looked a wee bit like Helena Bonham Carter. Probably not so much now though!
Or, more interestingly, YOU might look like a celebrity yourself. Well, you may not intentionally want to be a look-alike, but at least some people think so. Ergo, tell me (especially those who've been so secretive with their images, ehm ehm..), is there any celebrity you look like? Never mind about being called perasan. It's just who you faintly look like. We don't have to go international. Could there be a Rosyam Noor or Azhar Sulaiman look-alike among the bloggers, if not Deanna Yusuf or Sharifah Amani (not when bald, eh)? A Shah Rukh Khan, perhaps?
Me? My ex-colleagues and Mr D used to tease me by saying that I looked like Kate Winslet. Oh, please... It would be an insult to her! The film was released late 1997 and that was when I shed off more than I gained during my pregnancy to the twins (yup, gained 25+ kgs, lost 35+ kgs). Before some of you begin to even imagine a Malay version of Kate Winslet, you'd better just stop. My kids can vouch that I look NOTHING like her. HaHa!
Many, many years ago, some ex-students thought I was a Joanna Bessey (of Kopitiam) look-alike. Look, even Joanna is laughing about it! Our chubiness was probably what made us similar. So you see, Joanna doesn't look like Winslet and I don't look like neither of them.
Come on people... I'm D and I look none other than myself! LOL. (Surely BAMZ107, Bluewonder, AZ and mamasarah can verify this!) .
Anyway, which celebrity do you look like?
ps: Mr D thinks I also look like someone else now but I totally totally disagree, thus I'm not including it here. Now I think he's the one who's perasan! LOL.
