ക Why Ask Why¿ (7) Chirpy Chirpy 雞雞 Cheep Cheep

Which comes first, the chicken or the egg? Alphabetically it goes without saying chicken arrives earlier than egg. We can debate on this dilemma based on Mathematics, Evolution or Theology until the cows chickens come home and yet not a single egg would be hatched. Facts gathered from Wikipedia says the chicken (scientific name: Gallus gallus domesticus) is a domesticated fowl, a subspecies of the Red Junglefowl. One of the most common and widespread domestic animals, with a population of more than 70 billion being killed annually and there are more chickens in the world than any other species of bird as compared to the world human population of adding one birth every second with this counter as at time of posting is 6,868,443,783.

It has been quite some years back a lot of people got caught on with this chicken riddle "Why Did The Chicken Cross The Road?" The public unanimously agreed to this sort after tagline ~ 'to get to the other side'. You can find 1001 creative, weird and brilliant answers from the internet [here]. Bananaz just thought of two in relation to the airline industry and horror movie and have picked three more from the internet for sharing:

The Chickens crossed the road to watch a horror movie
Air Asia : Now Every Chicken Can need to cross any roads anymore.

Bill Gates: I have just released the new Chicken Office 2010, which will not only cross roads, but will lay eggs, file your important documents, balance your checkbook and eat your neighbor.

Martin Luther King, Jr.: I have a dream! I have a dream of a day, when ALL chickens can cross ALL roads without having their motives called into question

Hamlet: To cross, or not to cross, that is the question: -

Why Ask Why¿ (7) : Chicken = Prostitute ¿
Chicken in Mandarin/Chinese is pronounced as jī 雞 with the same homophone pronounced as jì 妓 [prostitute]. This slang "chicken" as " prostitute" is commonly known and widely used among the Chinese community. What a name? Opposite slang for gigolo is accepted as 鴨 yā [duck]. Oh me oh my we are into chicken and duck talk now. Just be careful with your conversation that could be disastrous like this scenario Bananaz and gang encountered during lunch. The owner of the chicken rice stall brought over the food to our table and asked "Who called chicken?" and all of us with eyes popped out and jaws opened. It literally means who called for a prostitute? Gosh and the one who ordered the chicken rice was a lady colleague. If he had added 'chicken rice' then its lunch.

To add on to another story a true Banana [English educated] who studied in overseas for a very long time came home for a holiday and wanted chicken breast 雞胸 for his chicken rice. Requested the bozz in direct Cantonese translation 'gai nin' which is 'chicken boobs' instead of saying 'gai hung'. o.Oppps! You would expect the worst if the hawker bozz is a fierce lady..

இ The Frogs

The Frogs ~ ribbit..ribbit..kwaak-kwaak..cra cra..kwa-kwa..bre-ke-ke..kerokero..croac croac..ob ob..gae-gool-gae-gool..guo guo..coa-coa..kva-kva..croak..

smiling Freddie the Froggie..

A farmer came into town and asked the owner of a restaurant if he would use a million frog legs.
The restaurant owner was shocked and asked the man where he could get so many frog legs! The farmer replied, 'There is a pond near my house that is full of frogs - millions of them. They all croak all night long and they are about to make me crazy!'

So the restaurant owner and the farmer made an agreement that the farmer would deliver frogs to the restaurant, five hundred at a time for the next several weeks.

The first week, the farmer returned to the restaurant looking rather sheepish, with two scrawny little frogs. The restaurant owner said, 'Well.... where are all the frogs?' The farmer said, 'I was mistaken. There were only these two frogs in the pond. But they were making a lot of noise!'

Next time you hear somebody criticizing or making fun of you, remember, it's probably just a couple of noisy frogs. Also remember that problems always seem bigger in the dark. Have you ever laid in your bed at night worrying about things which seem almost overwhelming like a million frogs croaking? Chances are pretty good that when the morning comes, and you take a closer look, you'll wonder what all the fuss was about. You can't please everyone, don't let criticism worry you.

Say no evil see no evil hear no evil oops do no evil

Happy Croaking Living! ~ RRRRiiiibbbiiiiitttt [listen to frogs call]

Still croaking? Have fun with Prince Charming then, guess who will win the competition? Good begets good. What goes around comes around.

இ Pretty Woman..

Once upon a time a big monk and a little monk were traveling together. They came to the bank of a river and found the bridge was damaged. They had to wade across the river. There was a pretty lady who was stuck at the damaged bridge and couldn't cross the river while on her way to attend a wedding.

The big monk offered to carry her across the river on his back. The lady accepted. The little monk was shocked by the move of the big monk. 'How can big brother carry a lady when we are supposed to avoid all intimacy with females?' thought the little monk.

But he kept quiet... The big monk carried the lady across the river and the small monk followed unhappily. When they crossed the river, the big monk let the lady down and they parted ways with her. All along the way for several miles, the little monk was very unhappy with the act of the big monk. He was making up all kinds of accusations about big monk in his head. This got him madder and madder. But he still kept quiet.. And the big monk had no inclination to explain his situation. Finally, at a rest point many hours later, the little monk could not stand it any further, he burst out angrily at the big monk.

'How can you claim yourself a devout monk, when you seize the first opportunity to touch a female, especially when she is very pretty?

All your teachings to me make you a big hypocrite The big monk looked surprised and said, 'I had put down the pretty lady at the river bank many hours ago, how come you are still carrying her along?'

This story reflects the thinking of many people today. We encounter many unpleasant things in our life, they irritate us and they make us angry.

Sometimes, they cause us a lot of hurt, sometimes they cause us to be bitter or jealous.. But like the little monk, we are not willing to let them go away. We keep on carrying the baggage of the 'pretty lady' with us.

We let them keep on coming back to hurt us, make us angry, make us bitter and cause us a lot of agony.

Why? Simply because we are not willing to put down or let go of the baggage of the 'pretty lady'.

Shall we let go of the pretty lady immediately after crossing the river? This will remove all our agonies. There is no need to be hurt by the unpleasant event after it is over. The past is gone, the future yet to come..LIVE NOW..!!

இ The Tortoises

A tortoise family decided to go on a picnic. The tortoises, being naturally slow about things, took five months to prepare for their outing.

Finally the tortoise family left home looking for a suitable place. During the second month of their journey they found a place ideal for them at last!

For about six weeks they cleaned the area, unpacked the picnic basket, and completed the arrangements.

Then they discovered they had forgotten the salt. A picnic without salt would be a disaster, they all agreed.

After a lengthy discussion, the youngest tortoise was chosen to retrieve the salt from home.

Although he was the fastest of the slow moving tortoises, the little tortoise whined, cried, and wobbled in his shell. He agreed to go on one condition: that no one would eat until he returned. The family consented and the little tortoise left.

Three months passed and the little tortoise had not returned. Five months...six months... then on the seventh month of his absence, the oldest tortoise could no longer contain his hunger.

He announced that he was going to eat and begun to unwrap a sandwich. At that point the little tortoise suddenly popped out from behind a tree shouting, 'See! I knew you wouldn't wait. Now I am not going to go get the salt.'

Moral of the story: Some of us waste our time waiting for people to live up to our expectations. We are so concerned about what others are doing that we do not do anything ourselves.

இ 1111 ~ 1 夫 1 妻 1 生 1 世 1Husband 1Wife 1Life 1Lifetime

“What we call the beginning is often the end. And to make an end is to make a beginning. The end is where we start from.” ~ TS Elliot. Very profound indeed never mind just to make the opening for 1.1.11 looks sophisticated *chuckled hehe*. We just have to start somewhere or probably 'nowhere'. Why not the latter, let's start NOW & HERE on a clean fresh page. Guess many would have a great start already making new resolutions about how to clear the resolutions for the previous years or indeed taken action immediately. Bananaz reckon all bloggers would wish for good health and here taking the opportunity to wish all the very best of the *besterest* and may all your wishes come true with super abundance.

Talking about wishes and dreams well well well 111 couples have their dreams fulfilled picking the special day 1.1.11 to tie the Nuptial Knot which was held at the Klang Hokkien Association, Selangor. Oh what a feeling a moment of excitement and joy for the exuberant 111 couples and their families. The auspicious 1.1.11 has created lovely and romantic promises in the local newspaper quite brilliantly written. Words like "愛妳一生一世" ài nǐ yī shēng yī shì [lit. Love you one life one lifetime *can anyone confirm if translation in English is correct please? tQ:)] equivalent to '..for better or worse, for richer for poorer..' and "一夫 一妻" yī fū yī qī [lit. one husband one wife] *This phrase strikes a chord, thought I saw something like this ~ "A Papa of two, a Husband of one and Boyfriend of none" somewhere, sounds very familiar, Eugene?. (Not sure anybody thought of adding flavour to the 1 something for some 1country?). For those who have missed tying the knot *Bananaz included hehe* on 1111, there is another opportune date look out for 11.11.11 whoa even a better date with 6 Ones or settle with 1.11.11 with 5 Ones then.

It starts with 1\1\11,

After 10 days 11\1\11,

After 10 months 1\11\11,

Then 10 days after that it will be 11\11\11.

Isn't that amazing??

Now take the last 2 digits of the year you were born add the age you will be this year and it WILL EQUAL 111.... How's that?

Have an amazing One-derful 旺得福 Wàngdéfú & Prosperous Year!
