(A typhoon has approached this
morning, but Jamie still went out for having breakfast. Now,
he has got home and of course has not eaten yet.)
Jamie: This weather is killing
Of course, it's killing! There is a typhoon out there!
I didn't expect it to be so strong. It's not
raining out there. It's more like someone is dumping water
down to the Earth. I thought it would be
just a weak one, and I could go out for a lazy breakfast
to enjoy this extra holiday.
Yeah, surely you can enjoy this holiday! Just go to the
beach for surfing. The winds today can surely whip up
giant waves and give you the excitement
of utmost. Or just find a river
The pouring rain can surely
make the stream so
strong that it's gonna be more breath-taking than you have
ever experienced in anywhere else.
You sound like a tour guide. Why don't you hang a banner
out the apartment saying "Hitchhike
a Typhoon, and Get Away From It All".
That's fast! I didn't expect you would respond to my sarcasm so
immediately when you're so drenching
Don't be surprised. I'm drenching wet now though, that's
just a knee-jerk
reaction to make response
to any jerk's satirical language.
And by the way, there is no need to go to a river for rafting.
Any street in our suburb can be a great rafting
What do you mean? Is it flooding again?
Yeah, the deepest area is about waist high, so I left my scooter on
an island, and then walked.
On an island?
Yeah, a safety island. So
I walked back here, though it's literally more like I swam
I don't think we need MRT in
this city. Instead, MFT is what we need to exactly
meet the uniqueness of this
city, the city of more than waterfront.
We ARE in the water.
Then, what does MFT stand for?
Metro Ferry Transportation.
We need ferries,
boats, not cars and buses, and we need ferry wharfs,
not train stations. The city hall has to
keep pace with the city's
Yeah, and no one would go cycling for
exercise. Instead, we could go snorkeling or
scuba diving, and probably we could find heaps of valuables
in those flooded buildings. Like this morning, I saw a big
suitcase floating down the street. Who knows what would be
in it! Probably people's jewellery or money are floating
everywhere in the city.
Yeah, and you'd better go out again with a huge fishing net
to make a killing.
To go out again? I think I'll be the one to get killed first.
