Of jenama cap ayam

Branded goods? Ahh yes... it’s a medium that shows one’s status. Whether you are the real thing or just plain wannabe, you will love branded goods. The louder the brand name, the more it screams “Attention! This chap has a fat bank account. Look at him! Look at him!!!” and boom… suddenly you are the new Robert De Niro. How cool is that?

Let say you’ve worked your ass off and manage to earn a few million. You bought a brand-new-originally-made-in-Swiss Rolex for your girlfriend. She thrilled and gave you THE BEST SMOOCH you've ever had. She paraded it around and the next thing you know, she came back with THE BEST SLAP you ever had. “You cheap skank! You bought me a fake Rolex. Even my window cleaner got one!!!”

You see… it worth nothing. So don't give your girlfriend a Rolex, even if it's ORIGINAL!

I had a long and fun discussion with Ms. Tumpikangus last nite and she claimed, “I will go for a Bonia instead, sebab tak banyak kat Petaling Street.”

Very clever…

I’MNOSUPERMAN: It’s the attention we seek, and we’re loving it!

hmmm... kalaulah kita ni jenis yang rumah banglow 3 tingkat, Bawak pulak BMW atau mercedes.. siap pakai drebar, kalau pakai rolex petaling street sekali pun org akan kagum... "Huyyo!! paaki rolex.. mesti ribu-ribu punya tu"...

tapi kalau setakat kerja lekeh-lekeh... kumpul duit dekat 10 tahun nak beli rolex original sebijik, sekali pakai yg ori pun org jeling sinis.. 'elehhh.. petaling street'...padahal, org tak tahu betapa bertungkus lumusnya kita kumpul duit nak beli rolex tu...

so, pengajaran - Rolex ni memang melambangkan status... tak payah pakailah...

tapi rasanya hidney memang layak pakai Rolex kan... biasanya org main golf ni, kena pakai Rolex... heheheh...

i completely and utterly detest the way you "stereotypically" look at women. What you think is a general assumption, is in fact, just a "jump to conclusion" sort of thing just because some, not all, women act that way.

It is a blunder we have to face to live in a community that belittles women.. But then again, dear blogger, you have to see the other side of things, too. Nowadays, you can see many women going after what they want themselves, holding respectable positions in big and successful companies.

In retrospect, after what I had just mentioned, it is clear that not all women are materialistic, brand conscious beings.


P.S/ hope i did not hurt your feelings or make you think that I am patronizing you. This is just a brief comment put out into the world via your blog on behalf of all women that have faced many problems due to this long-standing speculation.

thank you.
