[About this blog] Inspired by local soccer player Mike Lim during my rookie reporter days at Singapore Polytechnic, I set up this blog in August 2002. I feel that blogging is a novel platform to document interesting facets of my life and my thoughts on certain issues. [Email blogger] ephraim@singnet.com.sg

came across this joke while checking my emails todae... really funny... you will know what i mean after reading it....

once upon a time in Singapore, there lived a happy couple, Mr & Mrs Ng with their 3 lovely daughters; Elaine, Ena & Ella. the 3 daughters were brought up in a prim-and-proper way and when they reached 20, they were still virgins. years passed, and it was time to get them married. so, the parents found them the most suitable handsome guys. they got married and were preparing to set-off on their honeymoon. as 'concerned' parents, Mr & Mrs Ng were curious about their daughters' first-night experience. so, before the daughters went on their respective honeymoons, Mrs Ng told them...."your father and I want to know about your 1st night encounters and whether you are satisfied. write a letter to us, but as not to raise your husbands' curiosity... you all must use a code-name to describe your experiences". so, the excited daughters were off. a week passed. Mr & Mrs Ng got the first letter. it was from Elaine. they opened the letter and found the word STANDARD CHARTERED. they immediately took the newspaper and looked for the Standard Chartered advertisement. "Ah! here it is!", exclaimed Mr Ng. the motto for Standard Chartered was...."BIG, STRONG & FRIENDLY" Mr & Mrs Ng were happy. a week later, they got another letter. this time it was from Ena. the content was simple. "NESCAFE". so, again they took the neswpaper and looked for the Nescafe ad. "Ah! here it is. 'NESCAFE: PLEASURE TILL THE LAST DROP". Mr & Mrs Ng jumped in joy. another week passed. a month passed. and another. there was still no letter from Ella. the Ngs became worried. finally, the letter came. it was scribbled and could hardly be read but Mrs Ng managed to figure it out. the code-name was "SINGAPORE AIRLINES". why Singapore Airlines? Mr Ng rushed to the nearest store and got a newspaper. he flipped the pages frantically. "Ah! Here it is!" Mrs Ng grabbed the page and read aloud. before she could finish ...THUMP!!!...she fell off her chair.

the motto was ... "7 TIMES A WEEK. 4 TO 6 TIMES A DAY. NON-STOP".

hahaha.... *cheers*

be back next weekend for more......
