Take a Nap
Started by Night Angel 24-2-10 .

I got this link from Nohbudy, about napping. It sounds like a good research to have a little more time for lunch period at the office, since nap is as important as the meal.

Do you take a nap usually after lunch?

How about spending time in the bookstores and reading those magazines instead of buying them?

You don't need to read Harry Potter. There are tons of books that you can read from design to photography to cookery or even hobbies

I used to browse in library books about graphic arts and graphic design to know new trends but I've found more interesting the books by Taschen about photo

Taschen has some really cool books I must say, and those about classic art is also good

And I gues frisbee is not a bad idea. Some people spend a lot of time on one particular sport and in the end they are very good at it, like some black guys in street basketball courts

Yes, but we don't have much training and
traveling is a bitch without
car is a bitch without
petrol is a bitch without

Then again, reading magazine in bookstore, i does that if i am in the mall and have free time to spare, but nowadays, they only allow you to open the wrapping infront of them and quickly browse through them. That's for books, magazine, they usually don't allow you to do so.

I like bu some books about graphic arts, packaging, photos but the prices has increased too much

Crays, same here in Hong Kong but they don't mind if you read the whole book. Most people think that we are the consumers and so we need to examine the books first before deciding to buy it. If I have never seen what is inside, how can I know if it is the book I want?

Therefore, they read the whole thing, but most people won't have the time to do that, and so instead of flipping through the pages, they read through one whole chapter, say, and decide to have it or not. Still, they really read it, not just flipping.

Same for magazines. If a book or magazine is very good and useful, people like me will just buy it even if I have read it in the bookstore.

I think its the mentality, i think people in hong kong are more aware of their rights being a consumer. In here, the awareness is there, but they don't usually think about it. So when you do what you usually do in hong kong in malaysia's book store, they'll stare at you as if you'll tear off one of the pages in the book and frame it in your house!

Indeed, Hong Kong consumers can be fearsome because they always hold one line, "Consumers are always right," because they are to be served. They are the one to give the shops money

crays 12-4-10 2010-04-12 12:56:44

That's why, even in singapore, the consumers are aware of their rights. Here... kind of a different case.

So sad but I guess it is also about the exposure people have. When they see the whole pictures (meaning more educated from school or from media), they know what is going on, and they will fight for what they want or what they deserve.

same in China. People are just prohibited to see the whole complete picture, and there are many cheating and stuff in products and markets. If it is not those reporters, many people are already dead because of stupid, crazy and fake products in the supermarkets...

crays 13-4-10 2010-04-13 09:11:46

So true ._. I just wish the awareness is higher, another factor is that they're lazy.

Night Angel 13-4-10 2010-04-13 11:21:20

After all Hong Kong is a consumer city, and it is all about commercialism. People are also well educated, and together with the heavy and frequent investigation and checks from the media, everyone knows the tricks and thus knows how to do them and how to avoid them.

Just the way it SHOULD be.
