This is a forwarded email I received from J, so just copy-and-paste to share with the ladies...
Once upon a time in Singapore, there lived a happy couple, Mr. &Mrs. Ng with their 3 lovely daughters; Elaine, Ena & Ella.
The 3 daughters were brought up in a prim-and-proper way and when they reached 20, they were still virgins. Years passed, and it was time to get them married.
So, the parents found them the most suitable " leng chais" (handsomeguys). They got married and were preparing to set-off on their honeymoon.
As "concerned" (more like "kay-poh") parents, Mr.& Mrs. Ng were curious about their daughters' first-night experience. So, before the daughters went on their respective honeymoons, Mrs. Ng told them......" Your father and I want to know about your 1st night encounters and whether you are satisfied. Write a letter to us, but as not to raise your husbands' curiosity...you all must use a code-name to describe your experiences".
So, the excited daughters were off.
A week passed. Mr. & Mrs. Ng gotthe first letter. It was from Elaine.
They opened the letter and found the word "STANDARD CHARTERED".
They immediately took the newspaper and looked for the Standard Chartered advertisement. "Ah! here it is!", exclaimed Mr. Ng. The motto for Standard Chartered was.... "BIG, STRONG & FRIENDLY"!
Mr & Mrs. Ng were happy.
A week later, they got another letter. This time it was from Ena. The content was simple. "NESCAFE".
So, again they took the newspaper and looked for the Nescafe ad. "Ah! here it is. NESCAFE: PLEASURE TILL THE LAST DROP".
Mr. & Mrs. Ng beamed with joy.
Another week passed. A month passed. And another. There was still no letter from Ella. The Ngs became worried.
Finally, the letter came. It was scribbled and could hardly be read,but Mrs. Ng managed to figure it out. The code-name was "SINGAPORE AIRLINES".
Why Singapore Airlines?
Mr.Ng rushed to the nearest store and got a newspaper. He flipped the pages frantically. "Ah! Here it is!" Mrs. Ng grabbed the page and read aloud.
Before she could finish ... THUMP!!!... she fell off her chair.
The motto was ..."7 TIMES A WEEK. 4 TO 6 TIMES A DAY. NON-STOP".
