THE NOODLES WILL BECOME FAT

In my personal and professional capacities, I have the privilege to do some air travel.

As a poor student, I flew Malaysia Airlines often (on student discount, that is).

Switched to All Nippon Airways in the early part of my professional career.

And then, to Singapore Airlines before reverting to Malaysia Airlines...

The other day, I got a big shock upon discovering that a major chunk of our frequent miles with Singapore Airlines had expired.

Kaput, as in 'evaporated'...

Could have traveled for free to as far as Africa...

Dei !!!
Have a 'corporate-man' buddy who has accumulated gazillions of miles from frequent business trips.

For him, expiring miles are nothing because he does not have the time to use them...

But for a small-time kuchiku player like yours truly...

Adoooi... rugi maximum...
Another life-lesson that, there is a time for everything...

And that, nothing lasts forever...

So, better eat those noodles before they get too soaked up...

Adoooi... it hurts... *slaps forehead repeatedly*

PS: This post could have been titled, 'IT'S THE TIMING, STUPID!'

No?
