It is the month of August, on the shores of the Black Sea . It is raining, and the little town looks totally deserted. It is tough times, everybody is in debt, and everybody lives on credit.

Suddenly, a rich tourist comes to town.

He enters the only hotel, lays a 100 Euro note on the reception counter, and goes to inspect the rooms upstairs in order to pick one.

The hotel proprietor takes the 100 Euro note and runs to pay his debt to the butcher.

The Butcher takes the 100 Euro note, and runs to pay his debt to the pig grower.

The pig grower takes the 100 Euro note, and runs to pay his debt to the supplier of his feed and fuel.

The supplier of feed and fuel takes the 100 Euro note and runs to pay his debt to the town's prostitute that in these hard times, gave her "services" on credit.

The hooker runs to the hotel, and pays off her debt with the 100 Euro note to the hotel proprietor to pay for the rooms that she rented when she brought her clients there.

The hotel proprietor then lays the 100 Euro note back on the counter so that the rich tourist will not suspect anything.

At that moment, the rich tourist comes down after inspecting the rooms, and takes his 100 Euro note, after saying that he did not like any of the rooms, and leaves town.

No one earned anything. However, the whole town is now without debt, and looks to the future with a lot of optimism.

And that, ladies and gentlemen, is how the United States Government is doing business.

So, I am...

Working now. Well, just some update so my friends won't keep bugging me to update my blog (no lah just kidding). Currently, I'm working in a sound and light company as a lighting engineer. You know those in those concerts that you attended, where the light beams moving everywhere and the light blinking. Then there is big table at the back of the audiences with consoles with loads of button that you never seemed to understand. Well, NO, my job (currently) doesn't involve going to concert wearing t-shirt with the wording "crew" printed behind and having backstage pass. 


But, my job is to teach the people who go to those concerts and control the lighting consoles how to program and run the light show. But at the moment, I myself is still learning the trick of trade, which means I got to play with the 5-digits price lighting consoles and another 5-digits moving heads. Oh, there were loads of speakers, microphone and amplifier in the showroom, so occasionally the technician switch ON the speakers and amplifier. WOW! Damn! I like it.

I actually enjoy going to work, which contradicts with what many people tell me. I don't know about them but I enjoy doing what I'm doing right now, which is playing around with expensive stage lighting. Oh, and occasional facebooking too (from office haha)! I might not be blogging as usual as I used to, but I'll try to blog something interesting. 

Talking about interesting, whenever I heard Mariah Carey's song, then I'll try to imitate her voice or singing or falsetto or  whichever come closer. To her annoyance, she will asked me to stop singing while covvering her ear. Thank God she didn't record a video then post to youtube. Anyway, as I was surfing around, I found this Korean which was singing to Mariah Carey's song Touch My Body. He/she is singing in the studio somemore, damn! Anyway, this is better than William Hung or that Ken Lee song. Check it out!
