Far Skyes Enterprise formally announces our independence from any form of alliance with any entity in the Philippine Food and Beverage Industry, co-terminus with the retirement of our long-time ally Mr. Robert Francisco.
We're taking this opportunity to profusely thank our loyal customers and well-meaning friends for your patronage. Big and even Bigger things await...
So we finally caught the tiny little mouse, stuck in the Baygon fly paper trap we neatly set with Italian parmesan cheese as enticement (a.k.a. BAIT). Classy huh? As far back as I can recall my disdain for the "nippy kind" is intense. Fear became hatred, or that's how I coped to outgrow it.
No idea where the hell(hole) it came from! Since the day we moved into our humble abode in 2003 this is the first of its sort, so we made it extra special for our unwanted pest, oops i mean "guest." A little something extra to remember us by. Or a classy meal before you go, just like a last cigarette puff before you get executed!
Hopefully other uninvited "guests" would learn from this and won't follow its example. We are, after all, just protecting our turf before we get infected by the bubonic plague. NIP it in the bud as they say. Haha, sorry had to insert that word-play! Been itching since the first paragraph... My Blog My Rules right???
But then again, animal instinct dictates otherwise... A rat would always be a rat according to my concerned friends! Oh well, might just invest in a Pest Control company or a pet cat? Hmmm... Let's see whose patience is longer. "MAPECON nalang ang talo" (The loser is the sour PUSS)!
It's sad how a coffee roasting company with rock-solid foundation could crumble down in less than a year since a new owner took over. And mind you the acquisition price is a hefty-sum!
Immediately, customers noticed a change for the WORSE in the quality of beans (taste, aroma and uniformity of size), consistency of blends/roasts, AND the company's image has gone from reputable and classy to "bakya" (cheap).
Like a plague hitting a town, their old allies left in haste, refusing to be associated with their unscrupulous ways. And so the merry-go-round begins, as new partnerships are formed among those who scampered to a better relationship. This year's trade shows will definitely be an exciting one!
Some words of wisdom as the Year Of The Horse gallops in:
1) Respect your elders
2) Be true to your word (have integrity)
3) Focus on your core competence. Don't be a jack of all trades, master of none
4) Be nice to the people you meet on the way up, so they'll reciprocate it to you as you spiral down to the abyss
5) Money is not an end in itself. You may be loaded with cash, but imagination and true friends can never be bought
These are basic rules your parents should have taught you...
Oh and as a fitting tribute to the HORSE Year, take a cue from the famous Trojan Horse story - your friend is your worse enemy! So behave-behave!!!
