Eggs in a Basket
I was so darn tired. this stupid one day work one day public holiday week is pissing me off. not that i dint appreciate the off days. but jus that my body is having alot of trouble adjusting to my different waking up and sleeping time.

anyway, i was falling asleep at work... quite badly. and i was already on the causeway waiting to chop my passport to go into dreamland already. i was that near. but the queue was damn long. and i was like illegal immigrant you know? not supposed to go into dreamland one. but i still die die want to go in. so i was abit kan cheong. had to look out for policeman if kena catch so paiseh one.

and i suddenly had this thought. you know the phrase, 'never put all ur eggs in one basket' which means to not pin all your hopes on jus one thing. or it can mean not keep ur money in one place. cos if u get robbed or stolen. it means all your money is gone. so this vision started coming out in my mind. i was actually analyzing this phrase while waiting to enter dreamland. wtf?! there are different scenario.

Scene 1

Boy bought alot of eggs and had to bring them home from the market. the way home is very bumpy and uneven and its a long journey. so he decides to put all his eggs in the basket and go home in one shot... because he thinks its very mafan to walk back and bring back another basket of half the eggs. so he walks and struggles with the eggs. halfway home.. he was having alot of difficulties manuvering thru the road and finally his hands gave way. the eggs dropped onto the rocks and pebbles and were all smashed. He finally know that he should not put all his eggs in one basket.

Scene 2

Boy bought alot of eggs and had to bring them home from the market. the way home is very bumpy and uneven and its a long journey. But he feels that its too heavy and risky to put all the eggs into one basket.. hence he decides to take 2 trips. he managed to bring back the 1st basket of egg home without much trouble. but it was getting abit late. hence he ran back to the market to bring back the 2nd basket. but he was really exhausted after walking for so long. he was so tired that he's legs gave way n he fell down. hence dropping the eggs in the process. and all the eggs were smashed. He felt that he should have put all his eggs in one basket.

Scene 3

Boy bought alot of eggs and had to bring them home from the market. the way home is very bumpy and uneven and its a long journey. But he feels that its too heavy and risky to put all the eggs into one basket.. hence he decides to take 2 trips. the 1st basket of eggs was so light. and he wasn't having any trouble with it. so he walked abit faster.. however he was careless and missed his footing. and he dropped the eggs. he was very sad. and walked back to the market. after learning from his previous experience. he decided to be more careful and walk slowly. and finally managed to bring home the 2nd basket of eggs. He felt that he was lucky for not putting the eggs together and he should not put all his eggs in one basket.

It's all pretty out of point. but different situation occur when you have different mindset. it's all about past experiences. whether you feel that eggs shud be in one basket. it's like if flowers can bloom in the vast ocean and what if books begins to gather dust. it's all up to us. really.

so would you put all your eggs in a basket?
