Mind your Inglish

englishThe British TV comedy series “Mind your Language” is hilarious. It is more than comedy. It caricatures the English language with a potpourri  of international language flavours. For those whose lingua franca is English, the idiosyncrasy of the English language may not be apparent to you. But seriously, for adults learning the English language, navigating the labyrinth of the language requires that you take away logic else you may be totally misinterpreted. English is an enigma.

Sleeping on Someone Else’s Bed

indexTraveling is fun. It allows an escape from the daily humdrum routines. It can be one’s dream of a lifetime. Beyond the trills and excitement of traveling, there are other horror stories from travelers too. The first thing upon leaving home is that you will find yourself sleeping on a strange bed. A bed that probably has been laid on by thousands of strangers. A bedroom that countless events have taken place before you. A bed that may just had a murder victim removed hours ago. That really doesn’t sound that palatable. Whether it is a no-star or 5-star hotel, lying on an alien bed is inevitable. That itself is a story to be told. Read the rest of this entry »

Weekend Shock: Maid Addiction

maidDo you know that…….

The Singapore government collects a whopping SGD$680 million a year in maids levy (for doing nothing)

As of December 2013, according to the Ministry of Manpower, there are 214,500 maids working in Singapore over a citizenship base of only 3.3 million citizens. A  monthly levy of SGD$265 is collected by the government for each maid. With acute maid addiction syndrome, Singapore will perish without maids.

Weekend humour: Hi Jack

Traveling used to be fun and enjoyable. Not quite so now. At airports, it is now a prerequisite that you wear a business-like stern look. The atmosphere is often solemn and tense. Everyone is a potential suspect and treated with suspicion. You are liable to be searched like a criminal. Coats off, belts out, shoes off as a security officer runs his paws over you. Don’t giggle. Make sure you do not smile too. Humour is strictly forbidden. And remember, never forget commandment #1:

hijack1You will be greeted with a swarm of security officers overwhelming you on all sides.
