Cambridge Coincidences Collection

Well I Never!

Professor David Spiegelhalter of Cambridge University wants to know about your coincidences!

Living in the same area

I live in San Chong, as the school is pretty far from where I assumed that there will be no one living in the same area as I lived in. Recently I saw one of my schoolmates often in the same mrt as I was and I was curious so I asked him, this is when I realize we live in the same area and mrt station. Such a coincidence.

Meeting my First Friend

When I was in the first day of my first grade, i started talking to the boy sitting next to me, and we soon become my first friend in elementary school. The next day, when i went to my english cram school, i found out my first friend was also studying here, after we know each other better, we realize that our birthday is only one day diffrerent, therefore we are also born in the same hospital.

mutual friends in Huaxing.

My classmate Devin and I both studied in Huaxing before but different period of time. I was in Huaxing elementary school and he was in Huaxing junior high School. Although we were not in the same class at the same period of time, but we both have some mutual friends in Huaxing. Now we are also classmates in Kueishan.

haagen dazs strawberry ice cream

Renee and I went to eat haagen dazs when we are ordering the ice cream we found out that we both order strawberry ice cream, I ask her why do you like this flavor, she told me is because of the strawberry inside and thats what I like too.

Meet my friend without planning

One of my best friend and I were separated into different school since we graduated from the same middle school. One night right after when I finished the clam school, I walked the different route to the Zhisan-MRT station and I met that friend without planning with that friend. He also just finished his sports club and on the way home. We were so busy in different school and didn't have time to contact each other and so on. We just bumped into each other at the SOGO department.

video game coincidence

When I was little, I am playing a game called seer51. I love playing that game the main thing to do in the game is to get as many monster you can, just like pokemon. When I was playing I have a very good online friend called 關羽, he is very good at this game and teaches me a lot about seer51, but after a few months, I and 關羽 don't play seer51 anymore, until I came to kueishan and met a student named Steven. We started chatting and talked about games. He said when he was small he likes to play seer51 and I said me too, then I asked his ID and he said it was 關羽.

Ancestor Stories

While chatting with a new acquaintance at a new school, we realized that the ancestors on both of our dads' sides had retreated to Taiwan during the Chinese civil war, and that we both have relatives on our moms sides who was doing business in Indonesia at the moment.

School coincidence

My friend, Tim, has gone to the same school with me in grade four. We all went to Kang Chiao and we have a level of your swimming skill, which is white, blue, yellow, red and black. The thing is we never met before when we're in Kang Chiao, and we all leave the school after we get to the level of black in swimming. Know Tim and I came to the same school, Kuei Shan, in ninth grade.

Friend Coincidence

When I was about five years old, I lived in a apartment, me and my sister play in the downstair lobby everyday. There was another girl that is the same age of me also like to play in the lobby, and soon we become friends. One day when I went to the new school classroom in grade one, I saw her in the same classroom and we both didn't know which school we going to study in. In the moment we are really surprise and now we are still really good friends.
