Grabbing dinner in a very local Chinese place the other night:
Me: Can I have some tea please?
Lady: What tea?
Me: Uh, just regular Chinese tea.
I was alarmed.
I’m not quite sure why I was alarmed. Maybe for one split second I thought she thinks I’m ordering tea for fishing. Maybe Singaporeans fill their aquariums with tea.
The lady held out her pen and flexed her wrist up and down like a fishing rod.
Teabag. Like fishing no?
Guess we do learn something new everyday…
