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.

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.

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.

birthday coincidence

once when i was in primary school in slovakia, we played this game where we had to state something about ourselves which we think is special and unique. if someone else had anything which is the same as what you stated, that certain someone gets to sit on your lap. there was this one boy who said that his birthday was on the 7th of december, 2002, which is the same birthday as me. however, i didn't say anything since i didn't want to sit on his lap.

Coincidence of living in the same building.

I have a classmate, his name is Samuel. We are in the same class. One day, after I got home, I sat in the lobby of the building playing phone. Later on, I heard somebody say my name. I look up and saw Samuel looking at me with curiosity. I was astonished that he lived in the same building with me.
