Sundays already? Aiyaaaaaaaa.. How time always wooOOooshes quickly by when its the weekends. Here we were.. just bumping around. And now its almost over again. Monday dawns again. (I must have contracted the hate Mondays syndrome.. hahhahahahaa) I bet some 'spaceman' somewhere is yelping too because the weekend is almost over.

A section in the Options caught my eye today because it was about the pink thing. What pink thing if you may ask? Well.. its little... its flimsy... and its pink.. sometimes in other different shades. It comes in white or green too... and a cyan or black and yellow. But these little pink things are different.

Over in my country, we can't seem to get enough of these pink things. They are everywhere. Everywhere.

I went to the wet market this morning to get some stuffs for next week. Guess how many pink things i collected. And mind you.. they were all pink except for one. It was a transparent white. *LOL* Before you scream at me to stop talking about them pink things.. let me tell you what the pink thing is all about.

First.. i went to buy some bottle beans and ladies finger... the lady promptly dropped them all into a small pink thing and gave it to me. Then i went to the magazine stand to collect my magazine.. i told my nice friend there to roll it up. Each time i ask her to roll a magazine up, she'll give me a horrified look... and said.. you wanna roll this nice magazine up? Then i said.. ya.. roll it up.. and put rubber band la. Then she said.. do u want a pink thing to put the rolled up magazine... hahhahahaa.. I said.. no no.. no pink thing.. that's why i ask u to roll it up. hehhehee

Then i went to buy some chicken from chicken seller who chops everything nicely for me.. (yes.. i am a lazy bum.. i don't chop chicken very well) I usually get all my chicken all chopped up nicely.. and packed for the freezer in little packs. He promptly plops all the chopped chicken into a pink thing.. and tie it.. and put it in another pink thing cos he says the chicken juice will all drip into my recycle bag if he put it in one bag only. Then i said.. ok.. thank you very much for being thoughtful.

Then i went to the jasmine flower lady to buy a string of jasmine for mom. She rolls a ball of newspaper and rolled the string of jasmine over the ball of paper and promptly plops it into a white thing (the only white one i got today). Next i went to buy some tomatoes and carrots... the fridge here always have tomatoes and carrots because you never know when you want to make a ABC chicken soup. Tomatoes and carrots went into a pink thing too. I was beginning to get really worried with all the pink things i have collected in my recycle Giant bag... hahahhaaa

I bought a pineapple that promptly went into a pink thing too. I bought a weekend paper and the lady gave me a very big pink THING. And then it was the drystuffs shop.. i bought some shallots.. and potatoes and barley... and eggs. The eggs were just sitting on a layer of newspaper in a small individual pink thing. .. (but one egg was broken when it got home.. cos it was squashed between the potatoes and onions).. hhahahahhaa Oh ya.. and barley.. barley was in measured and plonk into a very small pink thing too.

The only seller in the market that don't give you a pink thing is an old man with his wife. He usually wraps the vegetables in newspapers and tie it with a pink raffia string. Urmm.. ok.. there's still some kinda pink too.

The amount of pink + one white that i collected on just one weekend market trip is too much... i even have a very worried look on my face carrying all the pinks.. hahhahahahahhaa..

How do you do your marketing without these people giving you little pink things? Maybe i should bring a basket next time... and cut some pinks except for the wet fishes and chicken.

Every little thing you buy, you are given a little pink thing. Even bread... its already in a bread bag but they still give you a pink thing to carry your bread from the shop to the car.. hhahahahaa. Our fingers are so used to the little pink things hanging on our fingers while we swing it and walk happily away. We so love the little pink things that Malaysia is so overwhelmed with the little pink things.

Our landfills are full of the little pink things. Fishes are getting trapped in the little pink things that people just throw happily into the rivers when the little pink things have finished serving its purpose. If you are driving on the highway, sometimes you see little pink things flying to you at your windscreen. *LOL* And sometimes, when lorry drivers carry dangerous stuffs that are sticking out of their lorry.. be it timber or long pipes, you will find a pink thing hanging at the end of the timber or pipes.. waving merrily away at us. Well.. it is suppose to replace some red flag to warn you not to drive too close. How the little pink things are suppose to save our lives.. that i am not too sure.

What do you do with your little pink things after you bring it home? Seriously.. i think i have to cutback on my acceptance of the pink things. It really serves no purpose for me to be carrying a recycle bag to carry pink things which are not really biodegradable.

Little pink things should just probably remain as something worn on the inside and not something that pollutes our little childrens future.
