5 bushels of rice 为五斗米折腰
I bowed for five bushels of rice.
Yesterday, 090909, marked the official taking over of a manufacturing plant in a remote corner of Sg Buluh. I was representing my other two partners, witnessed by company secretary Mr. C.K Yap (middle), handing over the final purchasing payment cheques to Mdm Lim (left), the seller.
I had been busy preparing the taking over and the operation of the company for the past two months.
With the taking over, I surrendered my freedom in exchange for the five bushels of rice (in Chinese means bowed to situation in order to earn a living).
I will no longer be as free as a bird... not more flexible time to go round places.... less time for blogging.... less time for my Father (God's) business .... less time for my wife .... less time for my dogs .... less time for meeting friends.....
September is also the busiest month ever. I am moving my own office in Kajang to a new premises before the end of the month!
