A man walking along a California beach was deep in prayer.
Suddenly the sky clouded above his head and, in a booming voice, the Lord
said, 'Because you have TRIED to be faithful to me in all ways, I
will grant you one wish.' The man said, 'Build a bridge to Hawaii so I can
drive over anytime I want. 'The Lord said, 'Your request is very
materialistic.
Think of the enormous challenges for that kind of undertaking. The supports
required to
reach the bottom of the Pacific! The concrete and steel it would take!
Itwill
nearly exhaust several natural resources.

I can do it, but it is hard for me to justify your desire for worldly
things.
Take a little more time and think of something that would honor and glorify
me.'
The man thought about it for a long time. Finally he said, 'Lord, I wish
that I could understand my wife. I want to know how she feels inside, what
she's thinking when she gives me the silent treatment, why she cries, what
She means when she says nothing's wrong, and how I can make a woman truly
Happy.'
The Lord replied, 'You want 2 lanes or 4 lanes on that bridge?'

I think sometimes women are complex, more complex than building bridges! if you remember pearly, its just like what Uncle Lee commented in one of j.t.'s post :)

Hi Pearly, here's a smile for you. A drunk stumbles into a baptismal service on Sunday afternoon down by the river. He walks down into the water and stand next to the preacher.
The minister turns and notices the old drunk and says, "Mister, are you ready to find Jesus?"
The drunk replies, "Yesh, Your Honor, I shur am!"
The minister dunks the fellow under the water and pulls him right back up."Have you found Jesus?" he asked.
"Nooo, Your Highness, I shur dint!" says the drunk. The preacher then dunks him under for a bit longer, brings him up and says, "Now, brother, have you found Jesus?"
"Noooo, Your Majesty, I shur dint!" the drunk slurs again.
Disgusted, the preacher holds the man under for at least 30 seconds this time, brings him out of the water and says in a harsh tone,"My good man, have you found Jesus YET?"
The drunk wipes his eyes and says to the preacher, "Are you sure this is where he fell in?"
Have a nice day, Pearly, UL.
ps, I still don't understand women from age 6 months to now, ha ha. UL.

That's a good one Pearly.

I agree with Winnie - women are more complex. Trying to understand a woman is like going into a maze. Once they get inside, most will get lost. haha
There is a sure way to get out of a maze. Did you know that?
Just keep your hands on the wall (you become one with the maze) and you will get out eventually.
So just like men trying to understand women, they have to keep themselves attached and possibly feel and be like a woman. Most men will give up. Bridges are easier to build. haha

Another good joke from U.Lee. All this laughter going around is making my Sunday extra light. haha

Hello people... if women are so so simple understand, life would be boring for the men lah!

And it is to our advantage that they still can't figure us out. Have you heard the story about the group of people hanging on to a rope?

There were 11 people hanging onto a rope that came down from a helicopter. Ten were men and one woman. They all decided that one
person should get off because if they didn't, the rope would break
and everyone would die. No one could decide who should go, so
finally the Woman gave a really touching speech saying she would
give up her life to save the others, because women were used to
giving up things for their husbands and children and giving in to men.

When she finished speaking, all the men started clapping........

Hehehe...

NEVER UNDERESTIMATE THE POWER OF A WOMAN!

J.T. said...

Oh my... that is a good one Pi!

Never underestimate the power of a woman. hahaha

Hi Pearly, I love all women, ha ha. Otherwise eat Magee mee, or ta'pow, bungkus, see tv alone, talk to the dog. Ha ha.
Just joking la.
Hey, thats a nice pic of you, like Taiwan film star. UL.

Actually leh, women are very simple creatures nia lar. It's the men that makes them complicated. Eg. you ask them one simple question like "What do you like to eat." and some of them come with "Anything." You tell me lar, is "Anything" a dish or what?

U.Lee said...

Hello Pearly, I rent space here answer Nonyapenang abit.
Hi Nyonyapenang, arhaaa ha ha, "women are simple creatures"? Holy Smoke, itu sure made me smile like kerang about to go in wok for char kueh teow, ha ha.
Re our "anything"? Yes, I too am guilty of saying that quite often, it actually means, 'go ahead my sayang, you are tired, cook anything chin chai pun boleh la, sayang', or 'I will makan whatever you cook, no problemos'.
I have learned past 48 years (experienced received 3rd degree burns, bbq'ed, goreng and bungkus by women) a woman's logic is totally opposite to a man.
If my beloved wife ask me, "my old sayang, what you want to eat"? And I say while glancing at my Playboy magazine (ha ha, just kidding, she'll kill me!) and I reply, "ohh, my favourite sayang, why not foo yong tan, hum choy pai kuat tong and pomfret fish with blimbing assam"?
I will immediately get a two hands on her hips, eyes wide open like see male stripper, and a look that will make me wish I had gone to Wat Arun, Bangkok become a novice monk, her voice, "what you think I am? Restaurant cook? I so tired, you ask me for gourmet cooking"!!
Then its two nights of living together like Brad Pitt and ex-wife, not talking much. Lucky can still sleep on same bed too, but look at chichaks face the wall.
And Nyonya says "women simple creatures"? Arhaaa ha ha. I married one 'simple woman' but she can make me unsimple. Ha ha.
This one like betting with a girl about ahemmm, can or cannot, toss a coin, "heads I win, tails you lose".
Either way I get goreng more crisp than Pearly's goreng pisang.
Arhaaa ha ha.
Thanks Pearly. By the way Pearly, you got time make scones with raisins, or cream puffs...anything also can la, arhaaa ha ha. UL.
