Have It Your Way

Captain’s log                         Stardate: 64059.2 (July 22th, 2010)

I was reading some jokes and hilarious articles from the internet when I came across this entertaining article. It was been written by Singaporean author, David Leo, and I find it quite amusing =) So let me share his humour with your guys here. See how you would react before judging his flavour of stock! =D

“The story goes that a strange animal was been discovered by a party comprising an American, a Britisher, a Frenchman, a Japanese and a Chinese. The Frenchman was concerned about naming the animal. The Britisher was interested to study about its habitat, while the American was concern about protecting it from extinction. The Japanese whipped out his camera to photograph it, while the Chinese was thinking ways of cooking it.

Then along came a Singaporean.

He had no objection to the Frenchman about naming the animal although he would have preferred the name in hanyu pinyin. He was prepared to learn from the Britisher but the myth of the Loch Ness Monster loomed large in his mind. He supported the American endeavour to protect the animal from extinction although he couldn’t understand the President’s penchant for shooting wild ducks. Like the Japanese, he would have liked a photograph of the animal so long as he was in the photograph too. While accepting the Chinese man’s invitation to an exotic feast, he would make sure that when the party was over, he would return home with some souvenir. A tooth maybe, or, better still, a wishbone.”

I’ll say, how thoughtful from the curious party that comprises of different nations from their bright ideas. Not all it may seem when the Singaporean arrived, where he juggle everything up and inclined to agree from each.

So, the moral of the story? Singaporeans will prove to the sceptics that you can have your cake and eat it.
