I get lotsa questions on my current obsession about Norway lately
So yes, I know some of you have also been curious about what's spawning my verbal diarrhoea about Norway in my tweets and Facebook updates. I shall share why.
If you're wondering, no, I did not fall in love with a Norweigian trout nor a codfish, neither did I get my feet whisked away by a Viking seafarer.
The thing is, I've never really paid any attention to Norway nor the Scandinavian peninsular within its vicinity.
I DON'T EVEN KNOW HOW A NORWEIGIAN FLAG LOOKS LIKE.
It looks like this –
Funny how Geography never taught me nuts about Norway.
The only thing I remotely know is that Norweigian salmon there tastes really good.
And Jens Stoltenberg is the current ruling president of Norway.
And the capital of Norway is Oslo.
Does that sound sufficient to warrant myself a fairly intellectual conversation about Norway?
I'm afraid not.
I reckon Norway looks like a goat head on in map
But don't worry. If it's any consolation, Malaysia doesn't look any better, I think we look like a lopsided mango 😀
Told you so 😀 😀
I don't actually feel so bad about my inadequate knowledge of Norway because in this Norweigian phase of mine, many of my friends ask me:
WHERE IS NORWAY ACTUALLY?
NORWAY IS SWITZERLAND RIGHT?
NO. It is not. Just like how pissed to the bone I'd get when people say
MALAYSIA IS SINGAPORE RIGHT?
MALAYSIA IS IN THAILAND RIGHT?
No!! It is not!!
So ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, this is where Norway is on the world map.
Yes I know it's tiny country to live in, but likewise, I'm living in one right now. IF you've ever heard of Malaysia. *rolls eyes*
So, what else do I think of Norway?
"That is was a beautiful country to live in"
Those were his exact words!
It produces nice friends (and good dancers) like you.
Although this is not my first nor only foreign friend, it's indeed a very eye-opening one as there was so much I learnt in such a short time. Thank You! 😀
Yes fine, I met a friend last weekend and I bet you can guess by now that he is Norweigian. Thus, it sparked my interest as why I don't know shit about Norway. Possibly because he doesn't know shit about Malaysia either.
Oh and randomly, I just handed in an assignment today on Cultural Globalization for my International Studies subject. Just saying.
Meet Person C, the very patriotic Norweigian. He likes beer and partying.
Then again, doesn't everybody? LOL
So what else? I think Norway looks like something out of a set from the Lord of the Rings trilogy
And you have a very good looking president!
For his age la, I meant :)
This is Jens Stoltenberg. I read up his biography and it was impressive!
Whatever it is, I haven't read up so much about Norway in one night. Pretty interesting, if I do say so myself. Bet you don't know half of Malaysia the way I know about Norway 😀
Now it's your turn to read up about Malaysia and produce something equivalent thank you very much.
So there you go. I've blogged about your country as per request!! 😀
