Justin was writing an essay about how external and internal effects influence a company's survival. So I was thinking, if I was to write the essay, I wanna write about vanishing trades. Think about those traditional wooden clogs. They were such a rage with those Samsui women!

Sigh, but now no one uses wooden clogs liao. See all the grandmas in their Havianas. Yup I'm not kidding, I have seen grannys in Havianas hahahaha. Oh those happening New Urban Mamas! And of cos Chinatown ah mahs can be seen everywhere in their garish Crocs.


How can they give up their clogs for Crocs? Think about it! Such a loss of heritage!

1. Clogs make excellent cockroach killers! PIAK!!!!! One shot one kill, they work faster than insecticide.

2. And isn’t it very wrong to be beating those paper dolls of your enemies with Crocs? Hahahaha! OMG, using Crocs would be like giving them a head massage!

So what is ur choice? Clogs vs Crocs! Hey they rhyme!

Wah lao... u dun support the dying trades!!!!
Aug. 8th, 2008 03:18 am (UTC)
推陈出新! It is very important.. Maybe the poor health of the older generation was due to the ergonomics of the clogs compared to crocs!!

Aug. 8th, 2008 03:30 am (UTC)
Hmmmmm ergonomics? Why dun u say its cos of ur better healthcare? U are the doctor after all!
Aug. 8th, 2008 03:54 am (UTC)
I very humble now... Anyway, I only see un-motivated army soldiers most of the times nowadays... It's a little un-inspiring and boring..

Oh would u like to see blood and everything? Den you should join the drama dept in mediacorp hahaha
Aug. 8th, 2008 04:17 am (UTC)
clogs! all the click-clog-click-clog sound is going to extinct.
Aug. 8th, 2008 04:20 am (UTC)
Hahahaha start wearing clogs when u go shopping. Make everyone deaf by running on the escalators!
Aug. 8th, 2008 04:23 am (UTC)
!!! hahahaha while everyone goes deaf, i'd be hospitalized for the fall down the escalators.
Aug. 8th, 2008 04:25 am (UTC)
Look on the bright side, ppl who use crocs have had their toes kenna stuck in the escalator. More jialat right?
Aug. 8th, 2008 04:27 am (UTC)
both also jialat and why i type 'escalatorssssss' as if i can fall many times to be hospitalized. haha shit.
Aug. 8th, 2008 06:06 am (UTC)
Hahahahha but I think u should wear clogs! Kill cockroaches very good.

External and internal effects influence a company's survival includes SWOT analysis, PEST model, Micheal Porter's 5 force or 6 force model( depends on wat is required) Value chain analysis of the company and it's strategic group in the industry that it is operating....
Aug. 8th, 2008 06:13 am (UTC)
Hmmmmm based on what u tell me, I must reformulate my criteria for the clog industry!
I doubt the SWOT Teams will use clogs as they are too noisy for handling terrorist situations. But clogs are excellent to deal with all kinds of PEST models - cockroaches and lizard will be flattened by the clogs! Dun need 5 or 6 force to kill. Just splat one time and no more bug!

Value chain? Hmmm I guess can start a few sweatshops and hire unemployed kids to make many clogs? That reduces juvenile delinquency and decrease unemployment leading to higher Value addedness.

Strategic Group for marketing? Samsui 'R' Us? Appeals to the inner "ah mah" in ladies.

cn nt imagine the Swot team pulling the straps on the clogs and throwing it out.. and shouting... "CLOG" *prowl position adopted...

Wonder if Clog killing methods cn kill my lecturer.. which to me... is a PEST.. but if cn.. in tis case.. pls use 11 forces... the 5+6.. juz to be sure....

eh... Kids are never meant to be employed for work... child labour is against the law leh..... TEENS delinquency above 16-18 can be considered though...

Samsui 'R' Us<--- which targeted market segment are u aiming for?? the uptown girls? The middle income makciks? the hardworking ah soh?? the general working force?? or go causal groupies?? Like abit one for all.. and all for one leh...

Aug. 8th, 2008 09:32 am (UTC)
The solution I see is to have a new start-up that hires teens to makes these clogs in-house.

With various designs that cater to the makciks who like to match clogs with their kebayas, to taitais who prefer their clogs with stilettos and for ah mahs, they need non-slip clogs. Of cos we can invite designers to make limited edition clogs with plenty of bling for the uptown gals, with black lace for the lolitas. Corner the whole market!

For u, we will need clogs made of consecrated hardwood with metal crosses to deal with ur lecturer and make sure he will not revive like the unkillable cockroach that he is. N it'll fit right into church too!
Aug. 8th, 2008 09:46 am (UTC)
Sounds like a Master of the Sea verison... machiam Margaret chan's infamous liner... " i will crush u like a cockroach"


Pls send it to me once the stock for tat clogs arrival.. tink my whole class each need a pair or two... hahaha
Aug. 8th, 2008 03:32 pm (UTC)
Hahahha maybe should come up with a whole range of clog merchandise - like keychains, massage aids (healthy kind not naughty kind)!
Aug. 8th, 2008 04:38 pm (UTC)

Aug. 9th, 2008 03:33 am (UTC)
Massage aids come in healthy n naughty kind hahahaha maybe clogs do too!
Aug. 8th, 2008 08:24 am (UTC)

Aug. 8th, 2008 08:30 am (UTC)
Hahahahaha I like Biz Ad studies! So interesting! Are there more factors I should note???
Aug. 8th, 2008 08:32 am (UTC)
There are still other point to add in also...Porter's Generic Competitive Strategic model.. Core Competencies.. biz level strategy... etc etc... etc...

hv fun.... =)
Aug. 8th, 2008 03:40 pm (UTC)
Yes Harry Potter can also use it for his generic movies. I'm sure they come in handy for those competitive sports. Can whack opponents off their broomsticks with the clog!

N the clogs good to train balance and your core muscle competency.

Biz Level Strategy - is like the biz-shi bashi arcade game? So u can use the clog to whack all the buttons. sure win those kinda games!!
