The Leaning Tower of Prata


This has gotta be the highlight of today. We were having lunch at a mamak when this waiter started collecting used plates and bowls into a structurally unsound configuration which flies against all the laws of gravity. It’s an abomination! This Bonanno Pisano wannabe was just BEGGING for his hodge-podge construct to come apart.

It started wobbling when he walked over to our table.

I can see the look of consternation of his face, as well as a glint in his eye that suggested DETERMINATION to reach the dirty plate washing basin before it deconstructed.
He was fighting a losing battle and he shifted left, and then right in an effort to correct the wobbling structure.

His face started showing signs of dismay and horror as he realized he’ll never cross the finish line without it toppling over. The leaning tower of old soup, rice, and gravy from various people’s leftovers was just beside us at this point.

In a last ditch effort to do some damage control, he sharply veered right and let his body act as a splatter shield as everything came down.

It still got to us though. I was trying hard not to laugh coz his expression was PRICELESS. I wish I had videoed it but I didn’t know it was going to fall.

I still think it’s funny even though my left sleeve smells like old onion soup.

  4. This page appears to get a large ammount of visitors. How do you promote it? It offers a nice unique spin on things. I guess having something authentic or substantial to give info on is the most important thing.

In case you are the type of leader, that simply sign men and women up and leave their particular needs for themselves, they are going to give up on you sooner if not later.

  6. People joined multilevel merchandising with various reasons. Certain are really was able to sell on their belief in the advertising and marketing system. Others, however, are not so very absolutely certain and were there as a consequence of many flimsy reasons on best of making money.

  7. After asking the MLM commercial enterprise a series of questions, ponder on your needs and necessities next, and ask your self a collection of private questions.

Even though a certain MLM supplier offers all of the right devices and support, in the event you will not have the time and dedication, the business alternative should not work well for you.
