IT'S NOT ALWAYS RAINBOW AND BUTTERFLIES...


i woke up rather late this morning and was stranded by the nationwide strike by some disgruntled transport groups. it took me an hour to get to my office from the usual 15 minute ride. times are hard. a lot of us are struggling to make a living and yet nothing comes out good from the efforts and sweat we are investing. they say that these are the signs of times and it is high time to juggle another work aside from the work you are into.

there maybe a thousand and one reasons why people tend to long for something more. humans as we are, it is just natural especially when we lack the resources, the power and the means to get what we need in life. some would resort to the extremes like doing favors for others for a fee. it's quite ironic then that even though we are in a country where resources are abundant, we still are poor. a little rich country but with poor people. imagine the ironies. if we have to point fingers, we could have done it a long time ago. but then it seems to be a cycle. the system in the government, the values (if you may call it) or should i say the attitudes and behaviors are being passed on from generation to generation. which explains why we could not make even a short leap from what we have been before.
