The Origin of Fable Fox Fable Fox |

I have a lot of plans for HUGI, but something happened end of last year – my PC got stolen. Go to my blog/website through the link above to learn more. Anyway, let just say things went downhill. The problem snowballed. Right now I'm writing this article using a used PC (800Mhz, 128 ram) that I bought for around USD 132. I moved from Kuala Lumpur to Kelantan, and did other things to survive. But things went worse. Anyway, here is the reason why I moved from the name 'Maniac Wolf' to 'Fable Fox'.

In other word, how Fable Fox got his name. But first, let me quote a very good line from a mini-series script.

"The other thing I'm noticing about life is...sometimes, even when you try really hard not to have too many expectations, the things you want don't go away. They're still right there... reminding you, all the time, of what you can't have."

Liz, from an unfilmed episode of Roswell "The Dance"

I loved Roswell. I thought from the name it was something like X-File. Too much lame teen mini series put me off after a while, and Roswell is quite fresh.

Anyway, my fear has become real. I always ask myself, do the crazy people choose to be crazy (in 3rd world countries, they just roam the street), do the homeless choose to be homeless? I'm 28 this year and far from 'being successful', or having a good family, or job. I worked hard since a kid – and still didn't get my opportunity. I don't want to end up crazy or homeless.

If you read my articles from previous HUGI, you might think my life would change for the better. I was thinking the same thing too. Too bad I ended in the same square one.

Looking at the biography of some people, like, say, Allison Mack or Dakota Fanning – I was wondering, how come some people have all the look, all the talent, all the love and all the luck?

Have you heard of Aesop Fable about the fox - you know, The Fox and The Grape?

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Fox and the Grapes is a fable attributed to Aesop. The protagonist, a fox, upon failing to find a way to reach grapes hanging high up on a vine, retreated and said: "The grapes are sour anyway!". The moral is stated at the end of the fable as:

It is easy to despise what you cannot get.

I am that Fox. End of story.
