Sharing a story today.
Around 40 years ago, this man was appointed to be the temporary secretary of East Hell (governing 6 districts) for a month. It was a tedious process as he has his normal job in the day and his new appointment by night.
Late at night, two imps will come escort him on a carriage to Eastern Hell for his job. According to him, the journey takes not more than 15min, while the ride is not bumpy at all (kinda like a floating carriage).
The new job scope is to approve punishment before the sinners were escorted to their respective sections (eg. People who cause disputes by speech sent to area where they cut off your tongues). Hell beings who dies from the torture comes back to life immediately due to the existence of "karmic wind" blowing throughout hell. For example, if you wrote a slander article, your tongue gets cut off, grows back, cut off again, until the article disappears from this world (when the last article is destroyed, or when the last recorded video disappears from any server in the world).
A few days into his job, he proposed to Boss-in-charge (aka King Yama) that they should abolish the punishment where sinners were made to hug burning pillars, "it sounds too cruel" he said. King Yama replied, "pay the area a visit, we'll discuss after you return"
So he made his way to the area allocated for burning pillars, only to find that there's absolutely nothing there. No burning pillars, victims/sinners, demons. He then realise that he couldn't see it because he doesn't have the karmic liability to experience it hence it does not exist. It is all part of nature, if you sow a seed, you and only you will witness and bear the fruits when the time is ripe.
Nobody created hell or heaven. It is a place created solely out of karmic energy, your karmic energy. Like dreams, which contents are materialised from your day-to-day and previous life's experiences. Believe it or not..

So read the advertorial on yesterday's newspaper about the gentleman's pack and decided to purchase it today at the Tampines Mall outlet.
I tried on the size and confirmed the purchase. The sales assistant did not inform me that they do not have the novelty socks that came with it.
I waited as he went on to pack up the shoes, while hearing him whispering to the other shop assistant that he can't find the socks.
During the payment he showed me the shoes checking with me the colours and sizes with NO mention of the missing socks. So I asked about it. He said its limited, and they are already out. HE SHOULD HAVE TOLD ME FROM THE START. Then I asked if they can get it from another store, the shop assistants said that they are not allowed to do inter-shop transfer, the only way I can get the socks is to buy it from another outlet. I did not patronise new balance to listen to excuses.
The newspaper article was published YESTERDAY and there is no stock today. This is not right. If you don't have the ready stock, don't advertise it.
It's not just about the socks, I love the shoes but it's $289 NOT well spent.
