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!



我为五斗米而折腰!

昨天,090909, 标志着正式接管了一间坐落于双溪普糯的制造厂。我代表了另两位股东,在公司秘书的见证下,把购价的最后款项支票,交到卖主林女士的手中。

在过去的两个月里,我已经在忙着准备接管及操作的事宜。

随着这个接管,我也付出了我的自由,而为五斗米折腰。

我将不再是如小鸟般的自由。。。不能很有伸缩性的到处溜。。。少时间写部落格。。。减少在主园地工作时间。。。减少陪太太的时间。。。少时间和狗儿玩。。。更是没时间去找朋友了。。。

九月也是我从未有过这样忙的时期,在月底之前,我还要搬迁本身在加影的办事处,到另一个新地点!

对你的选择,做朋友的只能至诚祝贺。当然有得就有失,我深知道老大会量力而为,更不会为了五斗米而折腰,哈哈!
