women are like apples

Well...i have never and will never disrespect a women in any way but women can be considering as the most unpredictable and the most complicated life that is living in this planet of the Earth!....

Some article i recently read about, their compare a women with the "apple".

Women are like apples

"In the past, single women were a bit looked down since they had no men for themselves. They were even considered spinsters. However, after reading this article, they shall be called ‘apples on top of the tree’.

Women are like apples on tree. The best ones are on the top of the tree.

Men don't want to reach for the good ones because they are afraid of falling and getting hurt.

Instead, they just get the rotten apples from the ground that aren't as good, but easy.

So, the apples on top think something is wrong with them, when in reality, they’re amazing.

They just have to wait for the right man to come along, the one who's brave enough to climb all the way to the top of the tree"

thanks to

And then at that morning i quickly search on google about "women are like apples" then my eyes stopped at this very last sentence on one article....

"Men are like a fine wine. They begin as grapes, and it's up to women to stomp the crap out of them until they turn into something acceptable to have dinner with."
thanks to

well.. and this i have to comment

In my BIG respect in a women okiee...Maybe the women should accept for what the men really are, not like keep asking him for more, asking him to be something else that women wanted men to be... We got self-esteem and pride to live for too!, how about face the truth and look into each other heart, stop asking for more in each of you, then a lot of different solution will work out perfectly....well hopefully.

I better stop comment on this or else it will turn too very very personal....aiihhh

anyway here is some comments

I think even rotten apples are unique in their way. Women are good in one way or another no matter what they are.

then this person replied...

You make a day shine by your word.

I understand that to compared the "top of the tree's apples" to woman are quite a thoughtful thinking. But to look down on other "woman" as "rotten apples" are quite cruel.This can make a nice article. But don't you think its a bit "self-absurd" for those "top of the tree's" woman?This is just my thought. I don't really know if it really place others in different tone of emotions. But I guess this is what I got from reading this passage.

this person replied with an interesting thought....

I agree.I don't think married-women are 'rotten apples' as some of them are really good and valuable. Moreover, some 'rotten apples' on the ground are easy to pick, but no one wanna pick them because they are not valuable enough to waste time even a second to pick them up. I haven't married, but never think i m an 'apple on the top'..neither 'rotten apple' because i prefer to be the one who have right to pick, not to be picked.

The end....

24 March 2009

17:58pm the time is showing on my computer, long hour working since i got here at work at 7:25am every morning for the last 2-3 month. The birds is not even singing by the time i got up at 5:00am, nothing actually wake me up from bed perhaps is a habit of me doing that every single day. I rent a room staying by myself, catch the underground train for 25 min to work, walk about 20 min to reach my work place from the train station, life been like that ever since i started to work here since last Nov 2008.

At 18:30pm everyday after work, I'm heading to the fitness next to my working place, life been like that ever since as well for being a membership there for the past 5-6 month, routine life? boring perhaps?....

I'm not so sure why I'm i writing this to let all the random blogger or my friends know about it, maybe i wanted to let it out and let the world know what i have been doing everyday....

I turn my head to the window, looking at the sun that is about to say good bye to us, the sun light is fading away behind the sky high building in front of it but It got noting to worry about because tomorrow it will rise again and may look even more beautiful than today.

I missed someone who is very far away, i wanted to hold her in my arms again, feeling of her warm and soft body touching against my body. Can this very last warm sun light of today sending this warm feeling from me to her......

love you....still

precious life

You are unhappy, salary is low, work is like shit!, don't have much friends, suffer many many fucking things in life!!, society is unfair and many many god damn little things you probably can complain about or even me! complained about it almost everyday yeah i admitted that. After reading this article this morning things in my mind starting to slowly change.....your life is more precious as you might thing it is, you probably in a better situation right now than some other people out there.

Hope the pictures here can really give us some motivation in life and tech us that we as a human being should never take anything for granted because life is not a storyboard you know, you can't erase it off and draw it again again and again, we can't change the past instead of improving and living in a better way in a present day. The pursuit of happiness is within us is just a matter if you can bring it out or not....

"Are you till complaining? Observe around you and thankful for all that you have in this transitory life time. We are fortunate, we have much more that what we need to be content. Lets try not to feed this endless cycle of consumerism and immortality in which this "modern and advanced" society forgets and ignores the other two thirds of our brothers and sisters. Let's us complain less and give more...."
