English Aficionados‏..

Can you read these right at the first time?

1) The bandage was wound around the wound.

2) The farm was used to produce produce.

3) The dump was so full that it had to refuse more refuse.

4) We must polish the Polish furniture.

5) He could lead if he would get the lead out.

6) The soldier decided to desert his dessert in the desert.

7) How can I intimate this to my most intimate friend.

8) A bass was painted on the head of the bass drum.

9) When shot at, the dove dove into the bushes.

10) I did not object to the object.

11) The insurance was invalid for the invalid.

12) There was a row among the oarsmen about how to row.

13) They were too close to the door to close it.

14) The buck does funny things when the does are present.

15) A seamstress and a sewer fell down into a sewer line.

16) To help with planting, the farmer taught his sow to sow.

17) The wind was too strong to wind the sail.

18) Upon seeing the tear in the painting I shed a tear.

19) I had to subject the subject to a series of tests.

20) Since there is no time like the present, he thought it was time to present the present.

We take English for granted. But if we explore its paradoxes, we find that..

There is no egg in eggplant, nor ham in hamburger; neither apple nor pine in pineapple.

English muffins weren't invented in England or French fries in France.

Sweetmeats are candies while sweet-breads, which aren't sweet, are meat.

Quicksand work slowly.

Boxing rings are square.

A guinea pig is neither from Guinea nor it is a pig.

A hotdog is neither hot nor it is made from dog meat.

And why is it that writers write but fingers don't fing, grocers don't groce and hammers don't ham?

If teachers taught, why didn't preachers praught?

If a vegetarian eats vegetables, what does a humanitarian eat?

If the plural of tooth is teeth, why isn't the plural of booth, beeth?

One goose, 2 geese. So one moose, 2 meese? One index, 2 indices?

Doesn't it seem weird that you can make amends but not one amend?

If you have a bunch of odds and in the end you get rid of all but one of them, what do you call it?

In what language do people recite at a play and play at a recital?

How can a slim chance and a fat chance be the same, while a wise man and a wise guy are opposites?

Ship by truck and send cargo by ship?

Have noses that run and feet that smell?

You have to marvel at the unique lunacy of a language in which your house can burn up as it burns down, in which you fill in a form by filling it out and in which, an alarm goes off by going on.

English was invented by people, not computers, and it reflects the creativity of the human race, which, of course, is not a race at all.

That is why, when the stars are out, they are visible, but when the lights are out, they are invisible.

Why doesn't "Buick" rhyme with "quick"?

Lovers of English language might enjoy this:

There is a two-letter word that perhaps has more meanings than any other two-letter word, and that is "UP."

It's easy to understand UP, meaning toward the sky or at the top of the list, and yet..

When we awaken in the morning, why do we wake UP ??

At a meeting, why does a topic come UP??

Why do we speak UP?

Why are the officers UP for election?

Why is it UP to the secretary to write UP a report?

We call UP our friends?

We use light to brighten UP a room?

We polish UP the silver?

We warm UP the leftovers?

We clean UP the kitchen?

We lock UP the house?

Some guys fix UP the old car?

At other times the little word has real special meaning?

People stir UP trouble?

I line UP for tickets?

We work UP an appetite?

They think UP excuses?

To be dressed is one thing, but to be dressed UP is special. And this UP is confusing..

A drain must be opened UP because it is stopped UP.

We open UP a store in the morning but we close it UP at night.

We seem to be pretty mixed UP about UP!

When it threatens to rain, we say it is clouding UP.

When the sun comes out we say it is clearing UP.

When it rains, it wets the earth and often messes things UP.

When it doesn't rain for awhile, things dry UP .

To be knowledgeable about the proper uses of UP , look the word UP in the dictionary.

In a desk-sized dictionary, it takes UP almost 1/4th of the page and can add UP to about thirty definitions.

If you are UP to it, you might try building UP a list of the many ways UP is used?

It will take UP a lot of your time, but if you don't give UP, you may wind UP with a hundred or more.

One could go on and on, but I'll wrap it UP , for now my time is UP , so..... it is time to shut UP..

Roy's Back..

Roy's Back from Langkawi..
and more important, he's back with some small gifts..
Haha.. no la..
Actually, he did brought us some.. huh..what do we actually call this.....
..umm..i will just temporarily name it "Flat Egg Roll", k?
It tasted not bad.. But what actually impress me is its packaging.
It's actually just some normal eggroll, u know..
Just like those you can get from Supermarket..
But it gives a totally different impression when you find it wrapped in Solid-Golden Wrapper,
with it's Florish Logo and some wording in France.
The second i have eye contact with it,
the first thing that flashed pass my mind is
"This must be very nice!", but i don't even know what is it yet..
oh gosh.. packaging really does matter!
Well, this is how it looks like. Totally Class, Man!

By the way, Thanks Bro! For those who doesn't know who Roy is.. This good-looking guy below is him. Yet, still he can't outshine the guy beside him.. any objection? No? Thanks. Haha..

New Plumber In-Da-House

Introducing the new Plumber In-Da-House.."Pin"!

Hehe..We are getting a new washing machine within this few days, so i called-up a plumber to restructure the watertap at the kitchen so that it can stream the water into two direction : one for the kitchen usage and the other one for washing machine.

We actually save quite some money on the purchase thanks to Public Bank Berhad and of course my princess, Ms Angel who is so lucky enough to bag home 2 lucky prize on our Public Bank Annual Dinner on 06/06/2009:

1)Lucky Draw : An Oven costing around RM389
2)Table Draw : A Hair Dryer costing around RM49

The washing machine which we are going to claim possesion is costing RM699, so we'll be pulling only RM261 on cash!

RM261.00 for a brand new washing machine!?? It's way too worth man..haha.

Have A Good Laugh

"Have a good laugh"

4 husbands were sitting at the waiting room in a hospital while waiting for their wives to give birth.

Then a nurse came out and told to the first daddy, "Congratulation, you got twins!".

"Ohh.. My God! Maybe it's a coincident" said the daddy. "I am working with the Petronas Twin Towers ".

Then another nurse came out and told to the second daddy, "Congratulation! you have triplets!"

"Wooow!, this is a coincident too!" said the second daddy. "I am working for 3M Corporation".

Another nurse came out and told the third daddy, "Tahniah! Isteri you dapat kembar empat,"

"Alhamdulillah! Maybe this is also a coincident too. I kerja di Four Season Hotel!"

While, the fourth daddy-to-be were in uncontrolled worry.

All the 3 daddies asked him, "Why are you seems so worry??"

He answered, "I am working with Seven-Eleven!!!"

Friday Dinner @ Sungai Ara

Friday Dinner @ Sungai Ara 'Hiew Mini Market' Hawker Center

Alas, the long-awaited Friday is here!! Hahaha..
Body is actually not that exhausted, but the mind really is..

Well, since it's friday.. we head deeper into Sungai Ara for our dinner. I don't actually know what's that place called, some more there's no signboard of any kind of board bearing the name of the hawker centre.. so i called it "Hiew Mini Market" Hawker Centre, as that's the only shop with an obvious name around that area.

Angel immediately hit for her favourite dish - "Chicken Gordon Blue" while i'm eyeing around..

Hoho..i found you, Ee Fu Mee! I'm quite happy to find there's a 'Hokien Cha' Stall coz 'Ee Fu Mee' is my dish of the week. Earlier this Monday, it so happened that i'm bored of having Mixed Rice or Chicken Rice for lunch, i simply just order a plate of 'Ee Fu Mee'.. then i'm hooked!

If you think we are done ordering, you are so wrong, coz Angel is not going to miss out the 'Fried Oyster'. Despite ordering a large one, Angel goes for the medium. Perhaps because the last time we ordered, we found it so full after the main dish.

Pin, by the way, as usual busy talking through the mobile.. then later ordered his favourite dish.."Yong Tau Fu" just like 2 weeks ago when we visit here.

Disappointing at the size & taste of the 'Ee Fu Mee', i topped-up with a plate of Mee Mamak fried by Chinese! Well... WRONG CHOICE AGAIN! Kind of tasteless and over-moisture.

I'm speechless.....
