Me: Yeah

Driver: You stay in Singapore many years oreddi?

Me: Yeah. Many

Driver: Wahhh. Good. You marry Singapore girl?

Me: Yeah

Driver: Wahhhh. How long you marry?

Me: Just married, two months.

Driver: Wah just married ah. A lot of adjustment to be make.

Me: Well, we’ve been living together for five years.

Driver: I tell you ah. When you first get married. A lot of adjustment problems. Last time ah. My son get married, always he always correl with his wife one.

Me: Yeah its not too bad, we lived together for five years before we got married.

Driver: I tell you ah. Only two months.. got to learn to live under the same roof. You learn your wife’s bad habits.

Me: Yeah but…

Driver: Last time ah. When my son got married. He tell me ‘pa. when we are dating, she never do all these things.’
