"An Ah Beng a day keeps the doctors away"

Title: Camping with Sherlock Homes
Date: 07-Jan-2008

Ah Beng went camping with Sherlock Homes. After pitching their tent, it was rather late. So they decided to go into the tent to sleep. In the middle of the night, they both woke up and saw a clear sky above. The stars were brightly shining,  So Ah Beng asked Sherlock Homes, “Sherlock, what can you see in the sky ?” So Sherlock Homes replied, “Well, from an astronomical viewpoint, we can see that the earth is like a drop in the ocean. We are so small compared to the whole universe. From an ecological viewpoint, we can see that the position of the earth is perfect for life form. Any closer to the sun will be too hot for us and any further away will be too cold. From an astrological viewpoint, we can predict our future  depending on the month  we are born. And from the position of the north star, we can tell which direction we are facing. So Ah Beng, what can you see from the stars ?


Ah Beng replied, “ Ai Yah….Sherlock, I don’t know much about astronomy, astrology, ecology or the north star.  But I can see that someone has stolen our tent lah”.


Ha1 Ha! In this incident, Ah Beng is finally smarter than Sherlock Homes.
