Water!

Thursday, August 25, 2005

Was at client's office for a full whole day for a user training on the new site that our company developed for them...It's really interesting to see a bunch of 30's over people sitting there, posting questions and different behaviour to some of the happenings...Was wondering will I be like them when I reach their age.

Anyway there's this poster outside their conference room that reads something like this - "A person is like a teabag, you need to put them into a hot cup of boiling water to know the quality/taste of the drink..." (Can't remember the exact quote, rephasing here and there)

Interesting on the internet there's this phase, prob. the originality came from there
"A woman is like a tea bag- you never know how strong she is until she gets in hot water."
- Eleanor Roosevelt

Then I ask my colleage to have a look and jokingly told her, ya then you gotta throw them into a hot pot of boiling water man and then they would live in a hazardous(水深火热) environment haha. The mind is really good at associating things, one thing leads to another, whereby I came upon to remember the story our SM Goh told before (hopefully i'm not wrong)...

Also on pot of boiling water hehe; there are two pots of boiling water. In the first pot, the water was cool and there's a frog in there swimming happily, little did it know that the water temperature was increasing, water boiling... In the other pot, the water was boiled, and when another frog was thrown into it, it immediately jump out of the pot, coz it know that it can't survive. Back to the first pot, when the water reached boiling state, the frog was cooked as it was too comfortable with it's environment.

Well i would say the first frog was a bit too stupid ah, with no environment awareness. I would believe animal would have instinct to detect water boiling and then would jump out of the pot.

Coming back to the topic, the two story doesn't make sense, but they all share the same environment water! Water the essence of life it's what makes and also can break!
