20 Days, 20 Lessons: #15

Upon seeing me in a photo: “You look so fat! Your parents will be happy.”

Upon seeing my visa: “Ha, ha, ha, fatter than yesterday.”

Upon seeing me: “I think you have gotten more fat.”

Lesson #11: Unless you are a pre-adolescent child, you will be called fat in Indonesia regardless of how many times you politely turn down the fried food and gelatinous sweets placed in front of you. Go with it.
