Just Delaying My Chores...

An observation since I've started to go into Central London a few times a week for nearly 2 months now:

Ramai mamat cina suka pakai cermin mata macam aku pakai and depa semua suka pakai bag sandang LV.

kuang kuang kuang

Yup. Believe it or not I've seen quite a few of these around in London. Is it a trend with these folks?

Well....it was just an observation....just wondering if anyone out there has spotted these guys walking around...:)

Anyway, four and half years of not working and I was recently painfully reminded of why I used to hate going to work.

BOSSES

Let me describe one that I have (ehem) recently...met...

emotional.takes out stress on staff.annoying.absolutely incompetent when it comes to financial management.actress.bitches about staff in front of other staff.makes empty promises.annoying.always talks highly of her/himself.annoying.blardy damn annoying.

Sound familiar to you?

I guess that's because apparently all bosses have these traits (a conclusion I made after talking to some other friends who are unfortunately working)....

Well...that's not being fair and you and I both know that but I'm just going to leave that sentence there anyway...(just to blow off some steam here, people - just let me be!)

Enough of that.

Another little observation: Rich people don't know how to raise their kids. Apparently.

Isn't it such a cliché though?? Alah anak orang kaya....memanglah perangai macam tu..

But I've seen it again and again! And I'm asking myself why must it be that way? Some of the parents are really good, intelligent and hard working people and yet...

If ill behaved and immoral kids come with the package - I'd rather not have all that money.

Honestly.

Sorry guys...this blog entry will definitely fall under 'Ramblings' - just had to let it out somewhere..

And another thing...

What's up with everyone talking about brands nowadays..??? This brand, that brand, I want to buy this brand, oohh..I'm saving to buy that brand...

And in these dark days of the economic depression too...

I don't know...brands just don't do it for me. Tried them once or twice but they just don't give me a high.

Nope.

And then I watched this on Youtube (saw it first linked from littlemuffins' blog):

Watch

And it strengthened my feelings on the matter....

And if there's a trend going on out there..well, I'm happy to be left out of it.

What I want to say to the people out there is: think. don't just follow.

Hey..But that's just me.

Enough rambling for now.

Salam Ibah,

About rich people punya anak, about brand itu dan ini... adakah sama macam kat msia? I mean, I don't really have much experience dealing & observing org-org 'kaya' di london in term of their lifestyle & raising their kids. Maybe u should write more on that... the positive sides? kalau ada ler...

Salam! Thatis why people like you and me dun become bosses! we are nice, caring and compasionate people! heh heh...

Come this April, it will be exactly 2 years since I left the corporate world. The only thing I miss about the office is my lunch partners!

D.N.A.S said...

Hehe.... I have brand preferences when it comes to gadgets, handbags, shoes, cars and electrical appliances. The rest, no big deal lah....

But, having brand preferences doesn't mean going for the expensive ones.

These days, if you eavesdrop group conversations at coffee shops or bus stations there are as many 'brand name dropping' as there was 'name dropping' when we were younger.

It's just some stupid trend. Most of the youngsters talking about it can't afford those brands. But it make them feel superior than those who never even heard of the brand names. Ego booster maybe...

And some of the friends won't even know it if they were using imitations instead.

m with you, with you all the way! never want to become bosses, dont dig brands and yes, cinas luv LV bags. heck, those thinngs in china are dirt cheap man!

nahiella said...

yep, kat Malaysia pun macam tu jugak. It's like, kalau u takde certain brands in your wardrobe, u r soooooo not "in". Pretentious, plastic, call it whatever, macam tu la orang sekarang....expensive handbags dont do it for me, cuma expensive coffee (Starbucks) je...hehe
