Student, will you marry me?


Update: Read about my teacher’s epic journey on his blog on sixtrainstwoboats.blogspot.com. There is something very magical about British writing. I enjoy the wit and the humour, often served up extra dry.

He was her lecturer in Wales. And my too.

He fell in love with her.

He waited for her to graduate.

He pursued her.

He won her heart.

He quit his job.

He’s travelling to Taiwan from the UK by land transport because he has a phobia of flying. He will try to find a job, live there and ask for her hand.

But omigod, how much more romantic and dramatic can this get?

I suppose somebody has the make the move.

He tells me one day over MSN, “I’ve given up on British women because they are lazy excessive smokers and drinkers and they eat junk. Asian women are smart, beautiful and appreciate homecooked meals.”

Well I have to agree with the homecooked meals part.

  4. tintedglasses Says:

    Six trains, two boats, from London through Germany and then Russian and Siberia. It’s possible to travel from Europe to Singapore by land too. Just takes an awfully long time. Couple of weeks?
