Why wouldn't it be? It was made in one of the local educational institutions by singaporean students sometime around a year ago. Old hat now. Just got off the plane did you?

Still making the rounds--and still funny! Reminded me to send it to my sister who just visited. Most locals think it's good--damn good lah!

It's funny until you get to the end. Then it's just silly. Especially the courtesy on the MRT bit. Bit of wishful thinking if you ask me. I ride it across the island 2x a day. (Serangoon to Clementi & Rtn).

Yeah, 7 months isn't very long in that context!! (Hell, I'm trying to figure out where the past decade went!) :o

Yeah, but SGBoyxxx makes no bones about his English not being powderful! He's not English educated and admitted when he first joined us that he wanted to try to improve his English. I give him lots of credit.

How is that ironic, hg? SGBoy does his best and is prepared to 'converse' in a language not his own.

How about you write more detailed and 'wordy' posts so we can make fun of you?
Better yet, how about you write in Chinese or Malay? That should be fun.

The video is fine, why be worried about sending it on?

By the way:
Oh!! the sweet irony
Why do you use two exclamation marks after the word 'Oh'?

The letter 't' should be a capital letter in 'the'.

There should be some sort of punctuation mark at the end of your sentence.

Ideally it should read: Oh, the sweet irony. Some would suggest that the word 'the' is not required in that sentence.

So, you manage three, possibly four mistakes in a four-word reply. Nice one, Einstein. Image

Amen.
