You’d Asked Out My Girl…the Young Model’s Boyfriend Threatened to Hurt the Man

Losers, “MARKING” their “territories” here, from the Newspapers, translated…

A twenty-eight year old fan, Wu awhile ago, asked a small-time model out to dinner, and this behavior had angered her boyfriend, Lu, and he’d stated online, that he was looking for a “hit man”, that if the person managed to beat the man who asked his girlfriend out will get $3,000N.T. extra, it’d made Wu fear, and, the police took the suspect in on charges of threats and harassments.

Lu admitted that he did use several emotional words online, but afterwards, he’d already deleted the message himself, he’d stressed, that Wu lied about going out with a group of people including his girlfriend, that in truth, he’d only wanted to ask his girlfriend out, and that she could bring along her boyfriend if she wanted to, that Lu was too worked up over it. The police investigations found out, that the young model who’s popularity is rising up quick awhile ago appeared in the Comic cosplay fest, and because the character she dressed up as is really cute, and it’d attracted a ton of fans to get their photos with her, and, Wu, one of her fans had even asked for her number.

But, Wu’s asking the young model out to eat had angered her boyfriend, Lu.  Lu and Wu had even started claiming their “property rights” on Facebook, “You asked my girl out, do you want to die?”  Wu replied, “Can’t two friends just hang out and dine together?  Are you not a bit obsessive!”

Afterwards, Lu wrote on his activities page, “Looking for a hit man, will pay $15,000N.T., and if a limb is broken, will pay $3,000N.T.s extra, if you’re interested, dial me privately, and you need not worry about the man’s family background of statuses.”, it’d made Wu fear, and he’d reported it to the police, and sued Lu for threatening him.

Wow, and so, that, would be what you get, when you’re way too famous, and, that’s just wrong, it’s like watching TWO dogs, PEEING and MARKING their properties, in this case, the woman would be the one, those two LOSERS leave their “markings” on, and, how come the woman doesn’t even HAVE a say, in WHO she wanted, I mean, after all, SHE is the cause of the argument, isn’t it???  And that still just shows how WRONG the values of these younger generations of people, they are using VIOLENCE, instead of REASONING to deal with their problems here.

Twenty-Nine Being Too Old Already~~a Call Girl Was Arrested, and Picked on

Yeah, uh-hum!!!  From the Newspapers, translated…

A twenty-nine year old call girl was found and arrested yesterday, she’d sighed on how she originally worked at a bar, but because the mayor of the city of Taipei started sweeping the occupations, and the business at the bar failed, and plus, she couldn’t win out with the younger girls, that, was why she’d started working at a call station, and the johns called her “old”, and she was arrested by the police, and had to pay a fine, she’d had her run of bad luck.

The police investigated, that Wang, who’d worked as a dancer at a pub on the east side, Wang, because she’d owed the loan sharks eight hundred thousand dollars N.T., plus at age twenty-nine, she was almost “elderly” in her career, and she couldn’t beat out the younger girls, that, was why she’d joined with the group of sex scammers.

The call station that Wang belonged to used “After Tea, Fish, the Meals”, and used LINE as a medium to get the johns, and the “delivery girls” are sold anywhere from $4,000N.T. to $15,000N.T., Wang is voluptuous, and has a name of being a transfer from a bar, she’d sold at $8,000N.T. for the starting prices.

Yesterday afternoon, she’d gone to a certain motel in Hsinbei City to see a john, she’d intentionally put on a Korean style mini-skirt that the younger girls wore, and the john said that the picture of her he saw was far off from her person, that she’s very “old”, and, after he’d masturbated to her, he’d tossed $200N.T.s, and told her to go away; Wang was displeased at what had happened, went up to the man who dropped her off, at which time, the police ambushing there took in over 20 condoms, and syringes for drugs, suspected that the driver, Wang and the call girl, Wang were also using illegal substances.

But, the two denied it, that the syringe was filled with lubricants to be injected into the condoms, that they weren’t using, and Wang said that she was all too unlucky, that the john only masturbated to her that it’d damaged her pride, and she was caught by the police too, and now, she’s out of money, to pay up her debts, after she was interrogated, she was taken in for violating the laws, and the driver, Wang was booked based off of obstructions of morality.

And because of how EASY it is, to use YOUR bodies to make a living, you do it, but, you can only “stay young” for so long, and what happens after you’re “expired”?  Are you going to start working as a pimp then?  And, if you ask me (but who asked Y-O-U???), this woman had it comin’…

Natural is the Best

With the recent “wind” of bad oils, poisons, etc., etc., etc., translated…

“I want to get a nose job, to make my nose stand out more.”

“I’d heard, that if you get a sort of electric treatment on your face, it’ll make your skin firmer!”

With the advances of modern day, some are using plastic surgeries, to make oneself better, and this, had become the trend, it’d made me think, that aren’t foods like so too.

On a hot summer’s day, it’s a great way to cool down with a scoop of ice cream, or tapioca shaved ice.  But, if you feel even thirstier after you’d had the ice cream, or that the tapioca that’s unfinished and left on the plates for overnight still hadn’t spoiled, then, you may need to pay heed, because these things may have chemical additives.

And because of the market’s needs, foods needed to be processed, for instance, having chemicals added to prevent from rotting away, or, bleach, to elongate the expiration dates, or maybe, to be made into multiple flavors, to fit the needs of the consumers.  And still, these couple of months, there’s a RED flag on food safety, and some had asked me, “is processed foods safe or not?”

At which time, I’d posed out the example of the pineapple pastries: in recent years, the locally grown pineapple became really popular, and, what’s fazing me was, what, were the fillings of the pineapple pastries we’d had from before?  The answer, winter melon.  Because the fibers in pineapples are too rough, the tastes are too acidic, the earlier days, the bakers would use winter melons instead of pineapples as filling for the pineapple pastries, not only does it taste good, it’d also upped the sales quota too, and, pineapple pastries became a well-known items in all the households.  And so, you can see, that the additives in foods may not at all be chemical, there are natural foods being added too.

I have a friend who enjoys instant noodles very much who’d used the instant noodles as his primary meals, he’d often claimed, “how can I turn this aromatic fuse down!”, but, these sort of aromatic foods usually have additives inside, and, if you’d eaten more of that, then, it would burden your bodies.

I’d once seen a news story, someone had found, that her features became odd in ratio after she’d had plastic surgeries done, after she’d gotten an X-ray, she was shocked, to discover, that every part she’d had work done became slanted.  This is similar to how we don’t know the process of the foods being processed, what we saw, are the finished products, and so, because of this, when we shop for our groceries, we must pay attention to the wrappings outside, does it have the contents, the ingredients, the additives, and, how much of the additives, manufacturer dates, expiration dates, the manufacturer’s information, etc., etc., etc., so we don’t pick up products with too much additives, or items that aren’t clearly labeled.

As the saying goes, “natural IS beautiful”, all-natural foods are the best, eat more fresh, in-season, locally grown items, so, we can give our bodies the most natural nutrients they’d need, and we’d feel safe, eating the food items too.

This shows the IMPORTANCE of needing to DUMP the artificial and return to the natural, because you don’t KNOW what, is being added, in the processing of the food items, that you are picking up, prepackaged from the shops, unless you were there, through the whole processes of processing the items, packaging, and, seeing the foods getting distributed to the shops nationwide, which you’re not, and, unless you’re a self-sustaining farmer, who can make ALL of your produces, all of your meats and fishes, and eggs, along with other needed food items, then, you are at risk, of consuming bad foods, because those merchants only have one thing on their minds, making a PROFIT!

Carried Our Invisible Scars from Childhood

Childhood had, really, brutalized us all, didn’t it???

Carried our invisible scars from childhood, we all had, and, for some of us, those invisible scars from when we were younger started showing up, without any apparent reason at all, how O-D-D?

Carried our invisible scars from childhood, that, was what we’d done, and through time, they’d hurt every once in awhile, and we’d chosen, to ignore the aches and the pains.

Carried our invisible scars from childhood, we wore them, without even knowing, that they were there, because they were, invisible, to the naked eyes.  Carried our invisible scars from childhood, we don’t know how they’d gotten on us, perhaps, we were too rowdy and, made a mess, and, as a punishment, these invisible scars, they came to us, to serve as reminders of our wild and rowdy pasts, who knows???

Carried our invisible scars from childhood, there’s no doubt, we all had, but, how come, for some of us, we’re still, bugged, by those invisible scars from our childhoods, shouldn’t we have, left them all, behind already?  Carried our invisible scars from childhood, and, they’d all, tagged along, wherever we will be, there’s NO way we can get rid of them.

A Faceless Woman

Translated…

The woman always had innovated ideas, to make herself appear different than the rest, for instance, on the matters of food, dress, even the way she’d articulated herself, she could always manage, to take care of it all.

That morning when she woke, she found herself in a good mood.  She’d placed her hands on the two doors of her closet, opened it up, sorted through all her clothes carefully from the left, to the right, then, back to the left side once more.  She’d decided, on that cute mini-skirt, yes, in this age where all women wore are long trousers.  Actually, this mini-skirt wasn’t at all that short, it’s medium-length, although it rested above her knees, it was still, centimeters away, from the runway standards.  The slutty women are fit for slutty men, and, those mature and charming men, they’re totally, not fitting, to her taste at all, so, how can she, not know how to dress herself up, sexy, and mature at the same time too?

The texture of the skirt was really soft and light like the feathers, with the floral prints circling around, fitted perfectly, on her waistlines, not too stuffy, and not too see-through, with the ivory-colored lace top, it’s the perfect way to dress, to meet up with a chance summertime love.

The woman closed the white front door without hurry, she’d caught the sight of the potted plants on the right side of the doorway, she’d told herself, to remember to water it after work.  The elevator took her straight into the garage, she doesn’t need to fake her smiles and say hi to the neighbors this morn, no one was around, no business to attend to, no discord.  The yellow race car was wiped to a spit shine yesterday from the garage, the sun is out, there’s no need to worry that water may splash, and make it dirty again.

She’d driven, for just thirty-four minutes from her garage to the office today, the smooth traffic flow made her feel even better, and, the Prada Candy she had put on, especially showed how light her heart felt today.  As she’d gone into the floor of her office building, the receptionist, Apple, would always stand up and welcome her in.  the two-inch heels, made small tracks that seemed to be chasing after her, the woman passed through the personnel office, the accounting section, the sales department, turned the left, and, went into the manager’s office, hers.  She sat down, her short skirt floated in the air, and, she’d left her purse by the leg of that wooden desk.  There was NO small piles of mails by the mail department today, there are only four items on the “To-Do List” on her computer.  Such a beautiful day!  As she’d thought, smile curled up on the corners of her lips.

As she’d read the contract from the ad agency carefully, she’d signed it, and, gave it to someone to send it out.  She’d returned a couple of e-mails from the companies aboard, got up, went to the small fridge, got that carton of mildly sweetened yogurt, it’s kiwi flavored this morning.  After breakfast, she’d gone to the powder room, to freshen up.  The restroom was at the end of the hallway of the office, as she’d returned, she’d gone through her normal walkways, the receptionist’s desk, the personnel office, the accounting office, the sales department.  The woman who’s observant had found something weird about the coworkers; it’d only been about two hours since she’d come to work, and people seemed to have put on another face; those who passed her by no longer smiled at her, they’d turned their heads away in a hurry instead; those who were sitting in their cubicles, would give her a bad look, then, drifted their gazes back to the computers.  And, there were a few, who were, watching her, with slanted gazes, what, is going on?

At about noon, the woman needed to go down to the fifteenth floor, to the foreign banks, to know the cash flow from last week, this sort of matter, should not be discussed over a call, it’s better, to interact face-to-face on this, it would give her company the advantage when needed.  She’d stepped out with her high heels again.   This time, nobody paid any attention to her, nobody bumped into her.  At the elevator entrance, she’d bumped into the Assistance Manager of the office next to her office, Wang, they’d smiled and said hi to one another, the elevator had arrived to their floor.  As the door opened, Assistant Manager Wang would normally ask which floor she’s going to, then press the button, and now, he’d behaved like a little school boy who’d done something wrong, worked hard, to squeeze his head into his neck, with his eyes shut.  The four individuals who were originally laughing and carrying on in conversations in the elevator, all of a sudden, fell silent too, some looked up toward the ceiling, some toward the floors, not looking at each other at all.  The woman was phased at how Wang the manager’s face changed, she’d pressed the button for the fifteenth floor.  And, she didn’t know, if she’d become a mute button, to the four individuals standing behind her.

On the long hallway of the fifteenth floor, there were a couple of workers, standing next to the copy machines, chatting, as the woman passed them by, they’d all, fallen, silent.  She’d pushed opened the glass door to the bank, the security officer she’d known smiled at her, she’d returned his smiles, and, he’d looked at her with this view of mysteriousness, lowered his head, took another gaze, lowered his head again.  It’s weird!  Something’s wrong with people today!  The woman walked straight toward the counter, and carried on in a nice conversation with Ms. Chang.  A couple of minutes later, the woman felt someone tapping her on the shoulders. “Apple, what are you doing here?”, the woman said, with surprise.  “Manager, your…”, then, Apple pulled the corner of the woman’s mini skirt from her panties.

The woman locked herself inside her house, and, reviewed over and over again, the events of the day in her mind, the scenes kept turning over and over again in her mind, like the unquiet raging waves, she felt this heat, rising up to her head, she became crazed with the feelings of helplessness, she’d bitten herself, hit herself hard, she hoped that she became faceless, because then, she wouldn’t need to face this world again.

The woman didn’t dare head outside her house, just paced like crazy inside her residence, worked, scatterbrained.  She’d cleaned out her fridge, trimmed the threads off of the couch that was showing, and dug out the mud from the sink, blocked the entrance where those small cockroaches would enter; then, she’d caught the sight, of the mirror she’d bought two weeks ago, still unopened…

A circular mirror, separated into two parts, the right half was a half circle, there were two dents on the left side, the left side on the left mirror had two bumps on its right, the two mirrors placed together, became a complete circle, without connecting the shapes, they’d become, abstract.  Bang-bang-bang, the woman nailed the left half to the walls, and, while she was nailing the right side down, she was careless, the right side fell to the floor, and, the woman saw her face, shattering into pieces, she screamed out of fear, turned her head back to the left-side mirror, it’s blank!  She’d found, that she doesn’t even have a reflection anymore………

This would be, the EFFECTS of putting on too many masks, this woman was perfectly dressed, had a perfect place to live, with a perfect set of wheels, and, she failed to realize, that what’s on the inside of her heart and mind was the most important, and, the image of her perfect self shattered, on the day that she wasn’t careful enough, to pull back down her mini-skirt, and, the shattered mirror was her state of mind, after reflecting over the events of the day…

The Holiday to DUMP the High-Tech Products, Returning to the Better Times Before

Translated…

<The Kidnappers of Our Lives>

My colleague showed off her brand new cell phone to me, told me how the moment her last contract expired, she’d taken her cell phone numbers, switched to another provider.  “This company has better receptions.  The company I was with last year, I couldn’t even manage to send out one single text message on New Year’s Eve, it’s so infuriating.”

Meeting up with the girlfriends, naturally, a group photo is a must, normally, the cell phones would do the trick, but, not today, my girlfriends mysterious flashed the brand new camera, “this one has amazing photoshop abilities, you wouldn’t need the computer program if you have this one!”, then, they’d photographed all the dishes served, because “there’s the ‘gourmet’ mode!  The foods photographed using this mode will look even more savory.”

A former class member from my college days posted photos of his entertainment systems at home, “it’s so fun, playing the video games right now!”

All of these, had been done over and over again, but, we’re all, truly, kidnapped, by the high-tech products here.

Meeting up with the friends for an outing; headed out to hang out, photographs always preceded taking in the scenes; as the weather gets hot, we must have the AC blasting on all night long, everybody has a laptop in her/his lap.

“I’m finding it harder and harder to recall how we’d managed to live so long.”  On a certain day, my friend smiled and told me.  “One day, I forgot my cell.  To tell you the truth, the moment I’d discovered that I’d left it at home, I was sweating out cold sweats.  But, later on, I’d thought, I never had any cell phones from way, way, way back when, my very first cell was a gift for my eighteenth birthday, the year I’d gone to college!  And, from before, I’d lived on fine, didn’t I?”

Yeah sure, recalling how fifteen, twenty years ago, when there aren’t that many channels on television, there’s only a few programs on, and, we only had landlines; compared to now, there are a ton of films online, series, for us to choose from, and, there are more than a million functions on the cell phones………such a great difference, and we are, quickly, being kidnapped too.

Can we set up a day, to ditch all these “kidnappers”?

<Turn Off ALL High-Tech Products>

Turn off the cell phones, or, just, “forget” to bring it, underneath your pillows at home, don’t take it with you!  Allowing yourselves, to not feel guilty for not picking up, you will find, that there’s this leisure feeling that will overcome you, you no longer needed to get agitated with the ringtones from your cell, nor do you need to stare at the screens of the cell phones, and, fret about whether or not you should pick up on these annoying calls.

On this day, turn off your televisions, your computers, forget about the cameras too, just head outdoors, to get in tune with nature.  How long was it, since you were able to, enjoy the sun?  Going for a picnic sounds quite nice, doesn’t it?  Living a life of leisure is the simplest kind of bliss.  And, you wouldn’t need to read too much into how beneficial to your health going on this outing is, just, step out of the house, and, get all of your friends who’d started to interact with you from just online out too, to see one another in person, to catch up on the old times.

Actually, before photographing the foods and the scenes, the most important thing is, did you manage, to record the images of these gourmet foods, these scenes into the memory disks of your minds?  On this day without your digital camera, the best way to remember is by savoring it, by feeling it, from the outside, and, take it all in.

If you’re really not wanting the troubles of heading out, then, how ‘bout cracking open a book?  Or maybe, just stare into space and daydream a bit, rolling around on your bed sounds nice too, huh?  How long’s it since you’d put your focus back on yourself?

There are too many additives to our lives.  Those inventions are originally made to make our lives better, but, after a long time, it’d become the culprit, to losing our lives.

From all of these new and interesting high-tech products, sure, we’d gotten a ton of enjoyments, created more conversation topics, our times are marching forward because of them too.  But, we’d still need to have time, to remind us of what we once had, what’s disappearing slowly right now.

So, set up a date, allow ourselves, to take a break away, from the fast pace of the world.  After we’d gotten a breather, we will be able to, return, back to our lives, with a big old grin!

And so, maybe, it’s time, to take a mini break, away from the high-tech products, after all, our lives are being kidnapped by these modern day inventions, how long has it been, since you actually engaged in an in-depth human conversation, where the two of you just sat at a café or something, enjoying one another’s company?  Exactly, so, turn off those cell phones, I-Pads, laptops or whatever, and, ENJOY yourselves for a short bit, ‘cuz work ain’t goin’ NOWHERE, it’ll still be here when you get back!

A Temporary Goodbye to Cell Phone Usage, the Holiday to Turn Off Your Cell

Translated…

The Side Effects Brought on by Cell Phones

I’d gone to a wedding banquet of a relative with my son, after he’d gotten a few rounds of food, he’d started burying his head in his cell phone, until I’d started eating my desserts, he still had the main course and appetizers on his plate.

I’d told him, “Son, are you truly that busy?”, he’d smiled an unkempt smile.

It’s no news when a group of people gathered around a table for the meals, lowered their heads to their cells and not engaged in conversations with one another.  I didn’t feel anything toward this odd condition of the younger generations.  But my son put down his phone, sighed, “having a cell phone is surely convenient, but, there are serious side effects also.  I hope that there’s a holiday where we can “turn it off”, just leave all our phones for one day.

I’d recalled how before I’d discussed our traveling plans for the New Year’s with my third eldest sister, asked her the dates of her two daughters’ return home, and, my third eldest sister started ranting, “Ignore them!  It doesn’t matter IF they’re back or not, or if we’re out dining or not, everybody is focused on her/his cell phone, children AND adults alike!”

My third eldest sister has wonderful children, and would take their kids home to dine from time to time, we all hung along well together.  But, don’t know when, this getting along well scene vanished, it wasn’t because the children no longer loved the parents, but because they’d treated their smart phones like their lovers, and allowed the cell phones to take control of their minds entirely.

And now, my son who worked at the military camps, who is restricted from using his cell and online, he’d often complained of how he wasn’t able to have access to find the information he needed online at work, but, the side effects from his cell phone usage, he’d compared the two situation, “My last company, whenever the coworkers have the time, they’d lowered their heads, to receive message from their cell phones, they lacked focus, and the work they did wasn’t that high in quality at all.”

Return to the Days without the Cell Phones

My son then talked about his classmate who’d only been married six months, because his wife found that he was flirting with other females on his cell phone LINE accounts, it’d almost put an end to their long-running, hard-to-come-by marriage.

“Because there’s no three-dollar limit (the price for sending and receiving a text message), it became too convenient to send the messages, and, the temptations from the outside world magnified.”, my son told me.

On top of that, there is NO exception to those on the MRT who had their eyes, glued to their cells, and showed absolutely NO care or concern for those around them, they couldn’t see the pregnant lady who needed to have a seat, and the distance between people became greater still…all of these, made my son worry.

Sure!  We really need a “Turn-Your-Cell-Off Day”, and it should be on January 30th, turn off the cell phones, slow your paces down, return to the days where there was NO internet or high-tech products.

So, what can we do on this day?  Get a back of old fashioned snack, and, slowly, savor the simple taste of the days.  Return back to the normal interaction modes with others, and, gather with friends and families, and truly feel the cares and concerns you have for one another.  If we pass the day like this, I’m sure, that everybody can be filled with zest, to face up to whatever challenges come our ways in the future.

And this, would be the solution to this oncoming cell phone usage addiction, but, it won’t be easy to do, I mean, how many of you are using your cell phones, even when you don’t need to, this, is a serious issue in the world right now, so, let’s all, take a holiday, from cell phone usage then???
