இ Random facts II ~ Have Wheels Will Travel

Meichun Jones aka Jeannie
First and foremost my special gratitude to my lǎoshī Jeannie who has been instrumental in getting Bananaz fired up with the creation of this blog, learning Chinese the hearsay way. The saying goes when the student is ready the sifu will appear and what a perfect timing with conditions ripening. Also to my dear soulmate Mango aka KF for all her kind assistance in reconfirming my thoughts and choices of words and Chinese spelling. Not forgetting, Bananaz would not have done it without the introduction by Jeannie, this ever ready silent professor MDBG to stand by me 24/7.

The Wheels of Life
Life is impermanent and death is certain. They say there are two things you cannot escape in life 1. Death 2. Taxes. (BTW just a friendly reminder have you submitted your income return to IRB?) The old Chinese saying 生老病死 *shēng lǎo bìngsì* birth, old age, sickness and death is an inevitable cycle 人生必經之路 *rén shēng bì jīng zhīlù* a path where all of us will have to go through. Thanks to [SK], my scriptease sifu for reminding me to include this and for sharing the wonders of scripteasing below.

There is this little boy who went for a movie and after the movie has been thinking over it three days three nights 三天三夜 *sān tiān sān yè* so obsessed with what he saw and prayed that his dream comes true as in that caper film. It is about a team of thieves who plan to steal gold bullion weighing 3200 kg and escape in their trio of Mini Cooper S. The heist plan calls for hacking the computerised traffic control crippling the system, paralyzing the traffic. Three Mini Cooper Ss, maneuvering superbly in the gridlock through sewer pipes in an action packed high speed chase. Okay okay please don't get me wrong, Bananaz is not talking about planning a heist but just cannot let go of the thought that one day he would be driving his very own Mini Cooper.

By now you guys would roughly know the title of this movie - its 'The Italian Job' (1969) with a remake later in 2003 using the same name 'The Italian Job' (2003) is set in Los Angeles and stars Mark Wahlberg. Ain't the three Mini Coopers awesome?

Make a wild guess what's Bananaz first dream car, sorry folks no prize for guessing ..

lina said...

The third car happen to be my dream car too. ^^

lina said...

Bananaz look so cute in his first car. :)

lina said...

Maybe if we both get our dream car, we can go "jalan-jalan makan angin" in a convoy together. ;p

lena said...

i'm sure your wish will come true or better still, stop dreaming..just go over to the sales office tomorrow!

Tekkaus said...

Tekkaus said...

[SK] said...

suituapui said...

Wah!!! Your family must be very kaya one! Many kids that time could only dream of having a car like that.

I guess things have not changed one bit - I still look at other people's cars today and dreamed of having a car like those... Sobs!!!

Yvonne said...

Wah... coincidentally my dream car is a mini cooper too! Back then my dad owned an old mini, I loved it soooo much and when it was traded for a new car, I cried. Since then, I set my eyes on mini cars.... Sigh, in my dream la.

Btw, that beauty in high boots, such a chick! Bananaz is making a lot of guys green with envy because men are proud of 2 things - gorgeous woman and beautiful car.

MODERN ROBINSON CRUSOE said...

Banz must be thrilled to get preety cikgu to compliment & thank her! Seriously mini cooper is cool !

Lastly, i hope for the return of old previous nonsense jokes that drawn me to your blog in that first place
