Importance of a good Breakfast

There is some difference between a 3-stars and 5-star hotel, may be there is a larger conference room, 50M swimming pool, a professional gym in the 5-stars hotel. But to a frequent traveler, the most important consideration staying at hotel is Safety, Cleanliness and the breakfast. I don’t need a 5-star hotel as I have brought with me the swimming trunk with me for 9 months,. I had just used it for once! may be 3-4 stars is good for me. It is important for you to rejuvenate yourself after one day’s work visiting customer, meeting people at the conference, and or drinking with business partners. After all it is necessary to have good rest in the bed and wake up early in the morning. All I need is a better room with a better bed with choice of pillow hardness and size!
2nd Important is A good breakfast that would help you mesh into gears in the decision making, concentration and likely the problem solving speed.
I don’t believe that people does not breakfast would work better than the one with a good breakfast, someone says, eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince and dinner like beggar. It tells the importance of the Breakfast.
Cost saving programme going down to a 3 stars hotel keep the starved In the day likely would make wrong decision in the business that might cost in loss in term of Cost x1,000 times than you stay in a better hotel. Don’t mentioned 1 star hotel., as there is never a way to find 1 star hotel on Earth. As if they call it one star, no one would go into it.
That is no longer called Hotel, they call guest house or inn.
Only wise management knows the secret of success, only poor Shanzhai struggles to survive by control necessary spending. Of course, this is the idea of a Snob, or why should I call myself a snob!?

Your Subordinate Today might become your Boss Tomorrow

A bird's eye view above nice of France may reveal the finance situation in Europe.
Passenger ship at bottom is leaving berth and without any tug boat stand by on her bow, perhaps there is no pilot onboard as well and the skipper takes the helm by himself to save every dollar for the company!

The top one just arrived and with very few bus coaches waiting alongside to take the tours.
Freighter on right is topped with yachts and catamarans, the owners could not afford a team of crew to sail his boat and have to take a public bus.
Are they poor?
Maserati new sport-utility vehicle was one of the most sought-after models at the Frankfurt car show this week and Ferrari SpA predicted record sales as executives said ultra-luxury remains recession-proof. Sales of the main high-end European luxury brands -- Maserati, Lamborghini, Ferrari, Bentley, Rolls-Royce and Aston Martin -- will rise 19 percent this year to 28,090 vehicles, and gain another 13 percent in 2012. The rich have gotten richer and the number of millionaires in emerging countries is really growing so the demographic trend is very positive” for the ultra-luxury car makers.
Rolls-Royce Record: Rolls-Royce owned by BMW expects in 2011 to break last year’s sales record of 2,711 cars & China may overtake the U.S. as its top market.
Bentley Convertible : Bentley Motors whose customers include Queen Elizabeth II and the Sultan of Brunei, rolled out an updated version of the Continental GTC convertible with deliveries of the 575-horsepower model starting before the end of 2011.

The world has changed, Black people can be the US President, The Poor people once was supported by People of HK some 20 years ago are now the largest buyer of HK's real estate and properties!
Once the Riches now has becomes the poor. Once the Poor now is able to buy the properties of Italy to prevent it going into Bankrupt. So Today, don’t look down anyone in the street, they might be your boss Tomorrow!

It always come to wrong side

I have been thinking after so many years why I cannot hit the mark six lottery jackpot.
Until recently, I started to check how lucky I am from the daily activities.
When I pick up the socks, I always pick up the left socks first, as I used to wear the Right first. So When I go hiking, I buy those Socks that has labeled R or L on the socks.
Every time when I want to open or close the blinds, I just pull the drawing string by random, everyone knows the chance is 50 50 and I never picked the correct one at first time. There should have some design change to ensure we pick up the right string.. by Colour?!
When I want to plug in a USB drive to the pc, I never care which side is which and do it at random, the result is same, failed in first attempt to insert in right orientation. Orientation means should be equipped on the PC.
When I pick the key of my main door, always I pick the wrong keys- They should go for biometrics Finger Print sensor, no more key.
Moral of the article is.. it will have the wrong choice, so sometimes, we got to be relaxed.And make a right choice in the first trial

If one gets famous , it is time for it to go failure

The Bottom Old Spice in Red is new Cheap version, whereas the top one was the good original.

You see the Yacht was small, ugly and shamful on teh new one.

Yes, there are cases, I used to used Old Spice After Shave when I was at School back inn 70s.
And that bottle was made of ceramic and it is heavy, beautiful… I always missed the fragrance and the refreshing feeling after I splashed on my face after shave.
Now I went to Long Shing Cosmetics at TST and found the Old spice, when I opened the bottle it is made of light cheap plastic.. Well the price of it isn’t cheap at all.
I feel disappointed already, which I used it this morning and found the old good fragrance was gone, it smell nasty to me…a pungent plastic smell that almost make me vomit!
So I think that Old spice was successful and somehow they changed the Package and even the formula of the After Shave Lotion. It was a failure!
Whereas the 4711, it was as same as it was 40 years ago, so good so nice…
This is a comparisons why big brand can come break down one day because they have been famous and the owner of the company would like to pursue more and high profit by Cost Reduction!!
Hope the big company or big shanzhai could learn on how to sustain a brand name nit by cost reduction, Instead, improving the product carefully using even better material. Especially luxury product.. no one care about the price…they are the Quality of the product. If the Cost reduction would improve the Quality, then go ahead, of better stay as it was made…
HK Snob

Moral of the article is
Quality is not easy to be copied, created, in one day, but you can destroyed it in one minute by Cost Reduction. Same for a great Company!
