Speak Good English Movement

I was reading our < > PM Lee’s speech delivered at the launch of the 5th Speak Good English Movement, and I too have this story to add.

Are you here to play or to sing?

I speak only simple English, yet few understood. Especially those from the West or those who speak only Good English..

Many years ago, I met this man, a Caucasian, a familiar face, at a hawker centre in Queen Street. I couldn’t believe my eyes. Few knew him as Henry John Deutschendorf Jnr.

It was about 1 am, and he approached me for direction, “Could you please tell me where’s Gay Land”

“No, we have a Gay World, but no Gay Land”

He shoved me a piece of paper torn from the corner of the newspaper and in it written “Geylang”;

“That’s “Gay-lung” a red light district. Why would you want to go there? That’s no good for your reputation.”

“Dont get me wrong, I come to Bugis to see the half man, half woman, and they told me Bugis has been demolished. But I could still see them at Gayland. ”

I didn’t feel like talking about Geylang with this gentleman, so I asked

“Are you here to play or to sing.”

“You want me to play and sing here? Right here? ”

“No, I mean are you here on a tour or a performance?”

Or maybe I should have asked, “Business or pleasure?” 25 years later, maybe I know what’s wrong, but I still couldn’t get it right.

” I am on my way to Australia. I am leaving tomorrow.”

That was the first, the only and last time I met and spoke to my idol, John Denver.

We chatted for a while, as if he knew me for years. What a warm and remarkable human being. I didn’t understand much of what he was talking, I doubt he did either.

Speak Good English?

Yes, we better do, to be understood.

But John would always know what I mean if I were to look up and ask him again ” Hey John, are you here to play or to sing?

anyone got spaMMMed by me today?

Sorry folks

I mean to those who received 3 mails from me this morning.

This is really embarrasing. Unlikely to be coming from me.

When the message was done. I click send. Then I decided to make another check. I usually make another check in the outbox after I click send.

Any way after the check, I click send and a message appeared ” Cannot delete message”

I was trying to send a message. Not deleting a message. So I click another send. The same message appeared.

So you’ve got 3 mails.

I’ve got 6.

  • 3 for myself
  • 3 from Chuck’s returned mail

I was expecting another 3 from an overquota box and another 3 from our lovely Ann who’s still on vacation since last November. It may not be true but that’s what the responder says. AND another 3 saying redirection failed.

It’s good to know she’s finally landed.

Good for you Ann, else you get grounded !

What’s that, Abe?

I really have no idea. Lincoln mailed this to me and I believed it’s not about his wedding dinner.

Goh Wei Koon is in the picture, so it probably has got something to do with Division Z.

I really can’t think because I suddenly remembered I’ve yet to submit my Income Tax Returns.

So if you see yourself in the photo, post something.

Let us know what’s this?
