is what we have now really better???

hmmm... am gonna write a back dated event that i observed yesterday... well... thursday morning i woke up at 0845hrs and i realized i was late for the 9 am meeting in college... so i hopped into the shower and left my house at 0900hrs and reaching that at 0916hrs... which is pretty good time considering the fact that i drive a KANCIL from subang to cyber... so anyway... the bus was late so i sat there with 3 other classmates contemplating if i should eat my breakfast or not... and i finally decided that i was really hungry and couldn't take it anymore... so off i went to get my eggs,beans, sausages and bread...which was RM4 in lucct... then when i finally got my food... lecturer called me and said the bus was tehre... so i had like 4-5 minutes to wolf down everything...

infact.. i was still eating a sausage and a slice of toast when i boarded the bus... since i only got 2 hours of sleep the night before.. it wasn't long before i slipped into a unconcious state.. and only woke up when we arrived... SO NOW.. being a smoker.. i kinda walked out quick to have a smoke before going into the factory... and this was when someone really pissed me off..

when i was walking out the bus, one of the semester four student said something like 'sei fan cheong... mm sek tai lou geh ah!?' and i was pretty much sure he directed that at me.. being groggy from the lack of sleep.. i stopped in my tracks , looked at him.. and said.. 'excuse me.... what makes you think i don't understand chinese?' his face turned to a ligther shade and appologized to me..

wtf!! yeah your sorry would really make me feel better??? coming from a student that was IN THE SAME COURSE... who's like 2 years behind me semester wise.... where the f*ck is the respect? i remember a time when juniors respected seniors and we seniors were VERY VERY helpful to the juniors.. and he called me a FAN CHEONG... knnbccb!! I should have just exploded in his face and went 'wei...malai yan mm sek teng kong tong wah ar??' i would have loved to see his face then...


SOOO anyway..what i really wanted to write abt was... see i was visiting a plastic manufacturing factory... and yeah it had really cool injection moulding and blow moulding machinery.. the world is really advance now.. everything becoming more efficient and cost effective.. but what makes me wonder is ... is what we have now really better?

With everything now being computerised and handled by machinery.. the need for manpower is cut down by alot. but we still need manual labour for smaller stuff like cutting off sprues and stuff (sprues is a term for one of the plastic manufacturing thingy). anyway .. i just feel that as we become more industrialised , we're losing that humane touch.. giving jobs that used to belong to people, to be done by robots and machinery. Some how i feel sad abt this.. but at the same time i'm also amazed on advancement of the industrial world these days..

but on the other hand.. we're taking jobs away from people and lettign machinese do it.. which would mean that things would be made faster at a cheaper cost.. making the products churned out by the machines WAY cheaper.. and people form the lower income bracket would be able to buy them.. as compared to making products using labour which would incur more cost and later on boost the selling price upwards..thus rendering it incapable for the lower income levels to posses the product.. now i wonder which is better.. hmmm i'm confused... i don't think many people read this blog anyway... so i suppose i won't be able to get much opinions from people :|

at times like these.....

so here i am sitting in the chair with the girl that i could never imagine how i could get by without for so long. In fact she's actually reading whatever i'm typing at this very moment indeed. She was supposed to come over to teach me about accounts stuff (in her words)..but i guess we just got distracted... or something... go figure.. :p

anywayi think she's like the sweetest scented girl that i've ever smelt. (and she's asking me how many girls i've smelt before.., what you go around smelling girls one ah!?)<---- her exact words okay.... hehehehhe so i guess this entry isn't just written by a single author but by two.... and i shall introduce her as ms...EVIL? hehhehe... she giggles in the sweetest way.. okay i know people out there is getting SICK of the way i'm talking now... BUT HAH! jealous issit!!

anyway on to more serious issues.. I mean i feeling like the luckiest guy alive now ..but still... there's a thorn in my seat or someting.... I mean.. i trust that she's broken up with her ex.. and all but honestly... what's he trying to do in the first place..? so she's asked me to take her down to tmn tun to get to some headquarters which i can't really remmeber at the time of writing this.. but.. next thing i knew she gets a phone call from Mr. X (hahah super cool name eh...well if u say so lar) I mean come on man.. i'm a guy too all right.. and i don't think it takes a freaking genious the figure out that he's got other ulterior motives abt calling herlike what 2-3 times today? and turns out that he dropped by her house to pass her dad some registration forms... So Mr. X ... can't get thru her so you're going thru the parents?? bah...

I mean like its not like i can do anything anyway.. right? after all who am i to have a say in this issue of what goes on between u and ms evil now? i don't know....

final words from me??

I just hope i don't end up feeling like the third party..or something....

ANYWAY.. THAT SAID.... NOW U GUYS GONNA GET REALLY JEALOUS WHEN U SEE THIS....
