IDLE CHAT & BLUR COCK DAYS

Making our way to town seemed like an adventure race cum comedy skit for me and my sis yesterday.

First, we made out way to Toa Payoh thinking that there was a straight bus from the interchange there to Far East Shopping Center. Sadly, I was mistaken. Then we had to go back to the MRT station to catch the train to Orchard Road. Upon boarding the train, there were 2 chinese girls in there, one very skinny and the other a bit plump. The plump chinese gerl was wearing a toga top but(ahakz) she had a piece of flesh that hung out from her armpit that really made her look undesirable. After scrutinising their attire my sis and I just took a while to shut up. But little did we know that when we shut up these girls conversation really just knocked the wind out of us.
I know that our mother's have told us repeatedly not to eavesdrop on one's conversation. But in situations like this when the train is packed you really don't have much of a choice. They're teenagers of about 17-18 yrs old, talking about RETIREMENT & DEATH! I mean wtf! Get another conversation topic man. What i overheard:

1st gerl: I'd like to retire in Singapore but eventually i'd like to retire in New Zealand
(at this point i turn ard to look at my sister whose face had gone slack after hearing what they had to say)

2nd gerl: Well, singapore is expensive i must say (blah blah blah)

1st gerl: Well i'd live to a ripe old age where i can get to see all my granchildren. im very healthy.(me & sis start to snigger)

2nd gerl: well i think i'll die first cos my parents have this history or lung cancer and high blood pressure(WATEVER!!!)

1st gerl(not wanting to be outdone she says): well we're all gonna die one day its just that we don't know when.(my sister was almost hysterical when she heard this)

Luckily for us the train had pulled into Orchard MRT stn where we just cldnt take it and started to laugh like a pack of wild hyenas! Psycho kids these days.

The other incident happened on the way home. After shopping wif ma gals, we all went off and me and ma sis and cuz boarded the train toward marina so that we'd get a chance to sit(it being the rush hour back home) upon reaching city hall on the way towards yishun, a stunning looking malay lady who is pregnant boarded the train. Long hair & beautifully made face which glowed (pregnancy really makes u radiate!) She wore a fitting brilliant blue shirt that covered her protruding belly and a long black skirt that reached her ankles. We just couldnt stop staring at her. Me and ma sis were lke commenting how pretty she was and how beautifully pregnant she looked. At this point we already approached Somerset MRT stn when my sister said wif a chuckle escaping her lips:

We shld have given her our seat!!!

We were so engrossed ogling the pretty pregnant lady that we totally forgot our manners kehkehekehkhe. Stupidity at its best.
That was definitely one of my most favourite mrt rides ever!!! Toodles!
