Convenience Store Talk

Carlsberg Beer, probably the best beer in the world. In what way? Its combination of the alcohol degree and taste?

Almost everyday, I go to the nearby convenience store to buy some beer. And I sometimes see a friendly old man there, who today said to me, “Coming to Singapore and work and enjoy!!” “I’ve got retrenched recently and I need a job. Find me one” I said. He told me to check the “Straits Times.” He is also the one who mentioned the year of the Japanese invasion (wrongly) sometime ago. Because I got many cans today, I excused (I mean lied) “No lah, with my friend.” He asked, even though I said “my friend,” “how many?” I said “two of us.” He and a young girl working with him still seemed surprised.
