Interesting article..!
So many different answers for one question. Shows that all people have their own ideas and thought. So don't judge which one is wrong and which one is right. They have their own reason to say so. So...it's really interesting. Hehehe..

And my answer for this question is:
because the chicken wanted to meet his lover at the opposite side of the road. Hehehe.. "love" melulu...

Mr. Dahlan said...

Hi Enno, how are you?

Thanks for your comment. In case you have your own idea that considered good to be known/shared to others, don't hesitate to put it here.

Mmhh, someone is talking about "love". What a universal theme.

All the best,

Dahlan

I guess there was no crossing bridge for pedestrian, or just an emotional action of a brokenhearted chicken!

Mr. Dahlan said...

G'day Sir,

Thank you for visiting.
You are definitely right. Or to ensure that answer, people have to figure out the origin of this particular chichen.

All the best,

Mr. Dahlan said...

Oops, there was a mistyping "chichen" it must be "chicken".

Hey, I am checking this blog using the phone and this appears to be kind of odd. Thought you'd wish to know. This is a great write-up nevertheless, did not mess that up.
