Che-arity?

Out of all the places, I went to KFC fro dinner. I just simply could not resist the good looking chicken on the plate from the big screen. KFC is now having a charity drive, where they will be 'donating' RM 0.50 for every snack plate customers bought. Actually I thought it was a good idea, but hear me out first. It goes like this:

The snack plate for the charity drive cost RM10.60, but the original cost is just RM10.10. Out of the RM10.60, RM0.50 is donated to the charity drive of an organisation. If I were to buy the RM10.60, I will be donating RM0.50 and paying EXTRA to KFC for tax.

I don't think it's fair to ask the customer to support their charity drive by levying the RM0.50 on top of the price. I rather do charity on my own then paying that amount and extra for the tax. So luckily I had a choice to buy that charity snack plate or not. And of course I bought the original since I rather do charity on my own unless the tax is also given to the organisation, but I doubt.

Although I saved myself some money from the tax, I realised I survived on -RM1.20 this weeked. =(

Recalling changes
Saturday, September 3, 2011
I bought an introduction book to climate change for my cousin in NZ, but I never presented to him, and I ended up reading it as part of my preparation to Japan.

I finished reading it in less 72 hours, and I recalled why I wanted to be an environmentalist since high school. However, I'm somehow saddened with the fact that my fighting spirit to save the earth is very weak compared to 10 years ago.

Watching environmental documentaries still freak me out, and yet it's amazing to see how people so relax and ignorant about the fact that humans cannot live without the earth and not the other way right. Yet, wastage is still uncommon, thinking resources would never end. It 'doesn't end' because humans are protected from the real view of the present state of the earth. It's like how parents prevent their children from watching violent movies. It's the same theory.

I have been showered with questions that the job of saving to earth should not be done by me. If not me by who then? That is why so large amount of people out there are still ignorant, that's because they know there is someone else trying to save the world. But the problem is the savers is so much smaller than the ignorant people. How can the savers achieve the goal? Many people are maximising money with resources. Have we ever thought what happen when resources are gone for good? What are we going to maximise our profit with? Our organs, our parents or our children? Think for yourself.

I'm now thinking how should I be more pro-active in saving the world. I have been practising whatever those eco-saving manners you can find in the book and online since I was 16 and I'm now a vegetarian.

That is why I'm now rethinking whether my masters topic on green spaces is related to my initial goals. If yes, how is my knowledge on green space save the world?

Must be Happy
Friday, September 2, 2011


Hebe - Hai Yao Xing Fu (Must Be Happy)

You know what? I have not listened to Cantonese/Mandarin pop songs since I left for NZ. The only Chinese songs that I like are oldies (<90s). But somehow the tune of this Chinese song attracted my fussy ears, which then sent signals to my fingers to search for the translation. As usual, this is a heartbreak love song, but I really like the lyrics, because it is similar to my penning.

The beat is just nice to me because I can not tolerate song beats which is slower than moderato. And the melody is quite melancholic, which suits the mood of heartbroken. The beginning has gentle guitar chords, and later more percussion instruments are added. I thought the transition and the whole composition was simple and not too overwhelmed, and really appreciate that I could hear the singer's voice clearly compared to other songs the voice is drowned. Surprisingly, I noticed many Chinese singers both female and male have high-pitch voice just like
Hebe.

Anyways, here is the translation of the lyrics. Hope you guys like this song too.

If you're not sure, then don't use your kisses
Feelings can easily destroy a person
After love has faded, if one is not ruthless enough, lingering feelings can be cruel

The mess that you've left behind,
day by day, I'll eventually get clear it all up
I even genuinely wish, with all my heart,
that you'll find forever before I do

You must find your happiness,
don't ever let anyone else shed tears for you
All the wrongs and mistakes should end along with me,
leave me, and just remember what we had in our hearts

You must be happy,
so I can be sure that I've given it my all,
so I can be sure that I won't take up more pages in your story
From tomorrow onwards,
this all will end

Return my spare key, goodbyes can be innocent
I even sincerely wish, with all my heart, that you'll find forever before I do

You must find your happiness,
don't ever let anyone else shed tears for you
All the wrongs and mistakes should end along with me,
leave me, and just remember what we had in our hearts

You must be happy,
so I can be sure that I've given it my all,
so I can be sure that I won't take up more pages in your story
From tomorrow onwards,
this all will end

If you're really happy,
I need not reply to your text message sent at midnight
Because you have found someone to share your sorrows and joys
And I'll be able to have the purest form of loneliness

Conan the Barber
Tuesday, August 30, 2011
And yes, I just did.

Don't you think my calling name really reflects what Conan is? I'm pretty sure he inspires a lot of young people to mimic his hairstyle. The only thing is I'm not impressed with his haircutting skills.

Oh well, I'm just not impressed with the movie at all. That's all.

And yes. Renaye just gibbered.

Sale madness!
Sunday, August 28, 2011
I went into a skincare retail shop last week because they were having member's special sale. And you won't believe that the total bill of the customers were between RM500 to Rm1000, and I was the only one in the queue that only purchased RM293 worth of products. The promoter asked me to buy something additional to bring my total to RM350 so I would be entitled a free 2 haagen daze scoop voucher. But I didn't even bother. Why would I want to buy something additional for about RM60 just to get a 2 scoop Haagen Daze ice cream which only cost like RM30?

Nah. Not falling for this kind of gimmick anymore.
