The second part of the craved rambling continues.
In this episode, the issue of future is being explored again. In most cases and i can dare say 8 out of 10 cases with the odd ones out, do not like their job or are slaving away because of another ultimate motive. It was interesting, over dinner yesterday, a man asked me, where do you see yourself in 10 years?
The answer was simple, I dont know. It isnt because i am not focused but it is way too far to think about. 5 years, yes, but 10 years depends on alot of things; whether you pick up business opportunities along the way, the economy, career advancement and so forth.
Then he asked me, well in which area would you like to pursue that future since we all know that life in the Big 4 accounting firm is nothing but a stepping stone to the future.
I immediately say definitely something to do with my love for food.
Then it all rewinded to the day before, my friend and I sat down for dinner and had a chat. What areas we could venture to; 2 of us, bearly any capital but determination to not live in a 9-6 job.
We came up with an idea and would like to engage all of you for replies. This is nothing but a dream but sometimes dream come true.
Breakfast. Majority of us busy people, either take in a heavy and nasty unhealthy breakfast or dont take breakfast. Infact if you decide to look properly in your office block and the surroundings of it, i be surprised to find something healthy and balanced.
Good protein, good carbs and something light to start the day with, not to forget AFFORDABLE. I am constantly amazed that people are willing to pay up to RM20 for a coffee and a sandwich when their salary is in the range of RM2,000 to RM10,000. People should not pay so much for a simple breakfast.
So back to the imagining, what if, and i say what if, a small little booth opens on the lobby of the building you work with that offers you all this:
A range of sandwiches; ranging from healthy basic choices to a premium range (imagine wholegrain bread, avocados, sun dried tomatoes and healthy chicken breast) . Made before the sun is up, you just pick it up, pay and go.
The western culture of 11am and 3.30pm snacks; a handful of nuts, a portion of yoghurt and fruit. All packed up nicely and ready to go.
Fresh coffee that wont cost you RM10 a cup because you wont be paying for the branding.
Knowing that you will start the day off with enough calories to last the morning but a whole load of calories more to spend during lunch or dinner if the ocassion arises.
Would you fall for the idea? or would you rather go for the roti canai or nasi lemak across the mamak?
Let me know.
