Enough of sentimental postings...
Today i went to JB, as mentioned.. everything was fine.. and when i was on the taxi going towards woodlands, i spotted a few places with these....
and it reminded me of a picture Gerald sent me a few days ago... haha.. i think got some people go and rearrange the cows wahhahha... or maybe it's PSed...

Anyway, i reached JB very early this morning.. cos the taxi driver was driving so fast! He only took 30 mins to go from Bugis to Hyatt hotel JB.. and i waited there for almost 45 mins for somebody to come and pick me up.
Next time i will know better not to go so early man.. sheesh.. waste my time, should have slept more.
On the way back, the md was very kind to drop me off at woodlands so that i can take a taxi. Then comes the interesting part.. i boarded a taxi, than after about 10 mins, the taxi driver started to chat with me..
"wah, you work so far ar.."
"no la, just now i went to jb"
"orrh.. your own business ar?"
" no la, where got so li hai (capable)?" *shocking look* ..... blah blah blah
"what kind of company? american or ??"
"oh, i work in japanese company"
"OH! you work in japanese company? nihongo ga hanasemasu ka? (can u speak jap lang?)"
"sukoshi hanasemasu (i can speak a little)"
Than you know what... he started to speak to me in FLUENT Japanese! and told me where and how he learnt his japanese, as his aijin (lover) is japanese... he stayed in Japan for 1 year to learn the language.
I was so tired liao leh.. so ying chou (entertain) him abit.. and just echo
"so desu ka" , "nihongo ga jyouzu desu ne (ur japanese is good, which is the truth)"
and all kinds of small talk. He kept on asking me questions in japanese too, even for the directions to get to my house and have no wish to switch to mandarin at all. I felt very COMPELLED to reply him in japanese but hey, both of us are chinese lo, why are we talking in a foreign lang huh?
I feel like telling him.. " Uncle, i knocked off aredi leh... dont stress me la.. dont like dat leh.. " hahah
Than you know what, he talked and talked and got me so engrossed in the whole japanese talk thing that i forgot to take the receipt from him!
He forgot all about the receipt too although i told him at the begining of the journey i needed one.. Sigh.. me hor.. talk, talk, talk, talk.. talk until forget liao..
Can I click that "Extend Weekend" ?...
