Pretty much the best country in all of Asia. Though very small and extremely hot and humid, delicious food and extravagant shopping exists here. Many underestimate the greatness of this city/country to other "great" cities throughout Asia. Namely Hong Kong, Tokyo, and Seoul. It has one of the toughest laws globally such as the banning of chewing gum (why it is so CLEAN!) and caning for fighting someone on the street. The tough legislation here means Singapore is extremely tolerant and multicultural.
After a month in Singapore, people here are so friendly and multicultural. Even more multicultral than Canada! Just love the food and shopping here...too bad I can't chew Excel to excel-lerate my breath!
The stereotypical slow driver who drives at 40 km/h (25 mph) in Canada and the U.S. on the fast lane because the lanes are too wide. However, it is the opposite situation back in Asia. In Asia (especially Hong Kong), the Asian driver is the one who makes unneccesary lane changes at over 120 km/h (75 mph) by signalling too fast and not shoulder checking on extremely ridiculous narrow lanes. However, they are somehow so pro that Hong Kong's accident rate is so low. But still, foreigners driving in Hong Kong are suspectible to accidents.
Surely, these Asian Drivers may be idiots here in Vancouver doing 40k on the passing lane. But when I rented a car in Hong Kong, couldn't believe they are so wrecklessly fast!
An acronym for Korean Central Television. The official state/government broadcaster in the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (a.k.a. North Korea) and the only TV channel running in that country. It is channel known for its interesting propoganda portraying liberty and the West as a poisonous threat. It runs daily news, dramas, random sports news, special parades, and mass games glorifying its so-called "dear leader" Kim Jong-Il. The channel is very secretive it only broadcasts in North Korea. However, some tourists in South Korea are somehow able to intercept signals and watch this channel.
Does anyone know where I can see that awesome military parade with Kim Jong-Il in it?
Easy, KCTV has all your coverage. I couldn't believe this is available in South Korea!
A Canadian University with an extremely large campus but low student enrolment. Its low enrolment is mainly due to the aging ugly, run-down buildings that are still on campus since the 1950s. Namely the Buildings that house the Schulich School of Engineering.
I know Calgary is a great city in Canada but seriously...this University (i.e. the University of Calgary) is old and not fit for humans to be inside.
The Xhosa (an African Language) word for Springboks. The Springboks is South Africa's National Rugby Union Team. One of the best, if not, the greatest national rugby teams in the world.
South African Husband: The Amabokoboko won the World Cup back in 2007. Looks like we will do it again.
New Zealand Wife: No way! The All Blacks will always remain on top of the world.
South African Husband: Yeah, other than your Tri-Nations wins, when was the last time you All Blacks have won a World Cup? It must have been a long time. Amabokoboko forever!
A euphemism for two men engaged in a relationship or a civil union.
Didn't you know that Elton John is in HOT LOVE!
HAHA. Thats old news.
The most racist part of the "United Kingdom", the whole island of Ireland, and perhaps even all of Europe.
Ay, did you hear the other day some hundred Romanians fled their homes in Belfast because they were chased by a bunch of gun-wielding hooligans?
What? I thought Northern Ireland was peaceful...oh wait Romanians...Pfft...get em out of here!
