Yeah i do get confused sometimes!
susah jgk la guna english ni.tak tau bila nak letak "ed"
or bila nak letak "ing", bila nak pakai "ate" or "eat" and so on.
memang mengelirukan!tp takda la se-confused Japanese people!

This is a true story from the Japanese Embassy in US!!!

Back then, Prime Minister Mori was given some
Basic English conversation training before he visits
Washington and meets President Barack Obama...

The instructor told Mori Prime Minister,
when you shake hand with President Obama, please say 'how r u'.

Then Mr. Obama should say, 'I am fine, and you?'
Now, you should say 'me too'. Afterwards we,
translators, will do the work for you.'

It looks quite simple, but the truth is...

When Mori met Obama , he mistakenly said
'who r u?' (Instead of 'How r u?'.)

Mr. Obama was a bit shocked but
still managed to react with humor:
'Well, I'm Michelle's husband, ha-ha..'

Then Mori replied 'me too, ha-ha.. .'.

Then there was a long silence in the meeting room.
What the duck?i dont know how true this is!
but still, its funny!
