It is said that the Canadians are one of the luckiest people in the world.

They had the choice of having American Technology, British Culture and French Cuisine.

Instead they chose American Culture, British Cuisine and French Technology.

Enjoy :bsmilie:

reminds me of the time i was in canada for overseas NS training. night time sneaked out with my army friends to get something to eat then realised nothing to eat, no 7-11 no nothing, only got one crappy 24-7 cafe which doesn't seemed to like asians very much lol. then see some people shouting and screaming at one another outside a bar. interesting.

Hi guys.. I am Canadian!! Well, kind of....moved there four years ago and now I am currently in Singapore doing an Intership......

Yeah.. Canada is such a nice place to live... as glennyong said.. is good for retiring...but sometimes can be boring...most places closes at 9pm... so not much night life...For me, I rather live in a city like Singapore or Hong Kong...

haha I will have to disagree with the initial post.. as Canadians dont choose french techonology as they don't import french cars such as peugeot, which sucks ><".....

Cheers

yeah he called prawns shrimps too. heng he never said 'heh bi' :sweatsm: and he keeps correcting me stuffs like dont say maize corn as it's like saying 'corn corn' , and then he pronounces 'flour' as 'flower'. anyway Canadians are known for being patience and corny. and i mean really corny :think:
