Innovative Product packaging ... NOT!!

Just went to the MickyD on my way to work and ordered the standard MickyD Value Meal. I was told that the fries will now be considered as a separate add-on - but the price of the meal was the same as yesterday. If you want fries, you will have to pay more ..

Most of you may consider this bullshit .. well .. yes, it is fictional on the case with MickyD, I just needed a comparable situation to illustrate the actual true case of the 'innovative' packaging that was introduced by ASTRO (a satellite TV station in Asia).

The situation was quite similar, last month, the subscription that I have included several channels that was suddenly 'repackaged' into a separate offering and to have continued access to this channels, you now need to subscribe to a new package!

While I don't really watch the tv .. probably only 3-5 hours per week, and therefore is really wasting the subscription for nothing .. BUT, this new development is just a fucking rip-off .. ASTRO - May you rot and slowly die .. Kiss my sweet ass and luv it!

I am who I am ..

After 30 odd years of living, it is most interesting of realization that I am NOT who I am.
Not wanting to speak for everyone, but how many of us are who we actually are .. I am not the person I want to be at work, I am trying to be the husband that my wife wants me to be, and I deeply want to be the father I think I should be for my son. Unfortunately, all that I 'should' be is not who I am .. maybe only God can utter .. I shall be that I shall be .. or more commonly, I am That I am ..

This is a whole lot of fucking bullshit .. because I tried so hard to be politically correct and not vulgar - but this is not who I am .. So fuck off world!

JIANG Zi-Ya (JIANG Tai-Gong) goes fishing ...

There was once a tale of a legendary master sage named Jiang Tai-Gong, who fishes with a short pole, a long line, a straight hook with no bait. Legend has it that he went fishing every day of his life up to a ripe old age of 80 plus, losing almost every material things and even his wife, but he continue waiting for someone to bite. He always remarked that 'Come and get caught if you so desire ...'
He knows of two things .. the person he's waiting for will come, and he will find his life purpose thereafter.
While most people will look at the story on the person who comes along to be caught, I found it more interesting to consider the fact that Jiang Zi-Ya has absolute conviction to wait for his destiny. His conviction guides him to continue to perform an impossible task that draw ridicule from everyone he know. He forsakes everything material including his wife to wait for his destiny.

JIANG Tai-Gong went on fight alongside the founders of the Zhou Dynasty and become the Prime Minister.

I wonder if I have that conviction .. (I need that conviction!) .., perhaps what I lack is the clear sign to know what I should be waiting for ...

The year 2005 ... (as seen in 1986)

I stumbled upon this excerpt from the original Transformer movie description from IMDb ... they have high expectation on 2005 twenty years ago. Where are you Optimus Prime ...

The Transformers: The Movie
Original Release Date: August 8, 1986
Rhino Home Video
ISBN # 1-56605-672-1

IMDb Quote:
It is the year 2005. The war between The Autobots and Decepticons has escalated all the way to Cybertron, which the Decepticons have reclaimed. The Autobots, without Optimus Prime after a conflict on Earth takes his life, must now face a destiny they know nothing of. Megatron and a group of forsaken Decepticons have been reformed by the ultimate transformer, a planet consuming demon known as Unicron into even deadlier warriors. Now Galvatron, Scourge and Cyclonus must destroy The Autobot Matrix of Leadership for Unicron's glory or suffer the horrific destruction of Cybertron. However, Optimus Prime has decreed that an Autobot will rise from his rank and use the power of The Matrix to light the darkest hour of the Autobots. With Hot Rod facing responsibility for Prime's death, he feels he may be able to use the power of the Matrix to turn the tide of the Cybertronian Wars and stop Unicron. Until all are one, the future of the Autobots and Decepticons is uncertain.

Insanity ...

I've just found out the definition of insanity .. First, you make yourself a strong mug of coffee just after midnight - then, you take your sleeping pills. Thereafter, you just wait ...
