Singapore oh Singapore, how small u are

Random talk 1

Heard on a podcast from a Christian church in Amrik.

The preacher: “Yesterday, I just checked our podcast downloads. Like which countries listen to us and stuff. And I was amazed of these 3 countries in the top 10 countries downloaded our podcast. One is Arab.. another one ..(gue lupa), and Singapore China! I am very blessed to know that our little preaching reach to that end of the world, as far as China!”

Weleh, sejak kapan Singapore ada di China…

Random talk 2 (true story, happened to my temen kerja)

In a coffee shop di small town in Amrik.

A: “Hi, can I have two of the muffins please?”
B: “Sure.. Here you go. That will be $5”
A: “Ok…” (ambil duit didompet..)
B: “By the way, your English is very good! Where are you from?”
A: “I’m from Singapore…”
B: “Huh, where??..”
A: “Singapore…”
B: “Where is that? Sounds like it is in Europe”
A: *timbul isengnya* “Yah… it’s very near to Switzerland, actually it is a part of Swiss”
B: “Oh, really? You are Asian right. Chinese? Does it have a lot of Chinese there?”
A: “Yeah, most of the island is occupied by Chinese…”
B: “Cool.. I never knew there is a lot of Chinese people in Switzerland. So what do you guys do in Singapore?”
A: “The usual stuff… milking cows, planting rice, .. u know the stuff Chinese people do..”
B: “oh.. how is the weather like?”
A: ” just like Switzerland, Singapore has 4 seasons too. Snowing heavily sometimes. Our island is beautiful with lots of farms everywhere, we are famous for our chicken, horses and cows”
B: “Sounds great. Maybe next time, I’ll go down and visit Singapore.”
A: “Yeah, you should!”

So.. now Singapore is known ada di Swizterland, famous for its chicken, horses and cows, punya 4 seasons, then Singaporeans kerjanya petani and milking cows.

That person is in for a big big surprise… HAUEhAUEhAUEea.. 😛

Gue bayangin pas tuh orang dateng ke Spore for the first time…
B: “where can I see the famous Sporean chicken and cows?”
Ama sopir taxinya dibawa ke food court, buat beli chicken rice…

hehehehe… 😛


Btw, remember postingan gue yg ttg faith? 2 postingan before this? yg judulnya We’ll see

Sekarang buahnya dah mulai keliatan, masih about 10%, but bisa dibilang, yg gue dapetin itu akan jadi kenyataan. Amin deh. Kata Tuhan, I just need to push on. 😀
