இ The Frogs

The Frogs ~ ribbit..ribbit..kwaak-kwaak..cra cra..kwa-kwa..bre-ke-ke..kerokero..croac croac..ob ob..gae-gool-gae-gool..guo guo..coa-coa..kva-kva..croak..

smiling Freddie the Froggie..

A farmer came into town and asked the owner of a restaurant if he would use a million frog legs.
The restaurant owner was shocked and asked the man where he could get so many frog legs! The farmer replied, 'There is a pond near my house that is full of frogs - millions of them. They all croak all night long and they are about to make me crazy!'

So the restaurant owner and the farmer made an agreement that the farmer would deliver frogs to the restaurant, five hundred at a time for the next several weeks.

The first week, the farmer returned to the restaurant looking rather sheepish, with two scrawny little frogs. The restaurant owner said, 'Well.... where are all the frogs?' The farmer said, 'I was mistaken. There were only these two frogs in the pond. But they were making a lot of noise!'

Next time you hear somebody criticizing or making fun of you, remember, it's probably just a couple of noisy frogs. Also remember that problems always seem bigger in the dark. Have you ever laid in your bed at night worrying about things which seem almost overwhelming like a million frogs croaking? Chances are pretty good that when the morning comes, and you take a closer look, you'll wonder what all the fuss was about. You can't please everyone, don't let criticism worry you.

Say no evil see no evil hear no evil oops do no evil

Happy Croaking Living! ~ RRRRiiiibbbiiiiitttt [listen to frogs call]

How true..... if you continue to live at the criticism of others , habis lah,, tidur pun than syiok...

问心无愧,睡的好,无烦恼

Merryn said...

Wow! This is SO true! I have ONE tikui that is bugging me in my life and if only i can chop off its legs, tails and every body part, my life will be peaceful again :P

yvonne said...

"You can't please everyone, don't let criticism worry you", it's such a good advice. One self determines his/her own happiness :)

Alice Law said...

Yeah... just learn to "see no evil, hear no evil and most important... speck no evil"! Oummmmmm~!

khengsiong said...

So maybe for every idiot who complains about you, there are 10 guys who would agree with what you do.

A nice story...

baincardin said...

cute! ^_^

Gratitude said...

I sleep well everynight! hehe

Btw, dunno why but your blogname always reminds me of choc banana cake.
+Ant+

suituapui said...

Sticks and stones may break my bones, words never will... No point bothering about such people. Say what you want, I don't give a damn.

Isaac Tan said...

cute but true! :)


Hellow there, first time here. Have followed your blog btw.

wenn said...

sometimes we feel when someone criticizes us but we can't shut people up..

Pete said...

gonna kill all the frogs and make porridge out of them......hah, gossip somemore lah! ha ha ha!

Shirleen said...

lol.. good advise.. :) but sometimes, when they cross the line you just feel like 'killing' them :P

Glennis said...

Oh thank you I really needed to read that. 2 noisy frogs sound like hundreds when you let them worry you, that is just how a couple of people critizing you feels.

Life Ramblings said...

It depends on the kind of criticism i receive. There are good ways and bad ways to give criticism.As long as the person criticises me explains it well and their explanation is valid, then i'll try to deal with it positively.

CH Voon said...

Yes! i agree with you.

sometimes, some of the 38 people like to say bad of others people.

Just ignore this kind of people, they will receive the bad feedback in future.

just like the movie clips! so nice

Bananazஇ said...

eugene இ sleep tight and sleep well bro.

Merryn இ which tikui is bugging you?

yvonne இ yeah you have to be yourself and not to be overly controlled by others.

Bananazஇ said...

Alice Law இ "see no evil, hear no evil and most important... speak no evil" and have a peace of mind.

khengsiong இ cant pleased the 11th person..tQ

baincardin இ tQ for dropping by.

Bananazஇ said...

+Ant+ இ I love banana cake minus choc..glad you sleep well and no nightmares of tons of choc banana cakes falling upon you hahaha

suituapui இ with your size nothing can break you lolz.

Isaac Tan இ tQ for dropping by, following you too.

Bananazஇ said...

wenn இ let them say what they like we have no control to shut their mouths haha.

Pete இ when frog legs porridge is cooked please buzz me ok..

Shirleen இ killing the frogs or the person(s)? haha.

Bananazஇ said...

Glennis இ equivalent to empty vessel makes the most noise hehe.

Life Ramblingsஇ Of course we would accept constructive ones and have to ignore those unnecessary ones.

CH Voon இ Let the 38 remain 38 haha. You liked the cartoon video quite true when one gets too arrogant and evil 'sky' got eyes..lolz.

MODERN ROBINSON CRUSOE said...

Actually i like those advise given here- Always easier to criticize or bad-mouth others but never self-introspection :P..ahaha human nature

Bananazஇ said...

MODERN ROBINSON CRUSOE இ Something the usual Chinese saying ~"Got mouth say people no mouth say oneself?" hehe.

Small Kucing said...

yummy...frog porridge..

cleffairy said...

Haihh... some people are really like snakes...u kno the story of Adam and Eve? Where the snake tempt Eve to go against God and dis so many things to destroy others just because it's jealous of Adam and Eve being in Garden of Eden? Well, alot people are like that... and most of them are highly deceptive in looks... outside, appear damn good... sweet, kind, a complete angel, but inside... tsk tsk tsk...the heart stinks...will do anything to backstab or front stab ppl. Ish ish ish. Frogs are still ok lah, bananaz... at least easy to catch to cook porridge... but snakes? Eyewww.... poisonous, venomous...wanna catch to cook oso very hard, it slithers away so fast!

Bengbeng said...

i like this. short, simple n to the point. i posted something related to this recently too :)

[SK] said...

oh yeah, another story from Linda Tan to form the trilogy!!! hahaha.. the stories are getting more and more interesting huh~~

[SK] said...

i must also think of the same way to tell a story, and then come out with a good morale, then send it to Bananaz so that he will publish my story.. haha!! :D

[SK] said...

very true, when we are frustrated most of the time we perceive things wrongly.. it's really a need to be calm and open in order to see the underneath truth..

Bananazஇ said...

small kucing இ you wanna add more pepper? haha.

cleffairy இ snake bile and blood are good for purification of one's body from toxin. The more poisonous the better effect haha..

[SK] இ Bro give chance lah cant think and write so well as the author have to depend on third party. All I did add some animation, pixz and tambah sikit liew here and there when required.

Bananazஇ said...

[SK]இ This will be the final part no more from Linda for the time being. Another morale of the story is jumping the gun without finding the actual fact. Only two frogs and that farmer assume millions blowing out of proportion lolz.

Lily Riani said...

so very true. somethings i stress myself silly and the next morning i found it it was such a petty issue that i couldnt have a peaceful sleep instead.

Bananazஇ said...

Lily Riani இ True sometimes we worry for nothing and realised its just a small matter the next morning.

HappySurfer said...

Criticisms can be good sometimes. If one is open enough, one may be able to pick up some lessons learned. There's no end to learning and improvement, right? Nice froggie.. and thanks for the analogy, Bananaz.

TZ said...

I just got a frog from the gift exchanges... It now on my office desk.

Mei Teng said...

Having two is more than the usual noise one gets. What more if there is more than two? A nightmare!

Bananazஇ said...

HappySurfer இ Constructive criticisms are healthy. Learning is never ending. You like the froggie cartoon not frog legs haha

TZ இ Does your frog at your desk croaks or ribbit? hehe

Mei Teng இ Back in my kampung after the rain we would hear *ing-ong* very loudly in the middle of the night which could be very disturbing.

ErikaToh said...

Wow, I love this story! It's good! I'm glad to be able to learn it here. Thanks for sharing! :D

Bananazஇ said...

Erika Toh இ tQ for dropping by and following. Cheers.

Jingle said...

smart teaching..

love the frog tale ...

Happy Weekend,

Bananazஇ said...

Jingle இ Many angles of comprehending the story. Stop worrying, dont jump the gun, ignore rumours etc..Happy Sunday.

jam said...

Agree! Less worry leads to a better life.

Bananazஇ said...

jam இ dont worry be happy..~;).

cHrIstInA_YY said...

Interesting frog story and meaning behind it... I hate gossipers that spread bad news about others!

bluedreamer27 said...

make those criticism not one your weaknesses. Instead, treat it as a challenge and do your best to prove that there are all wrong...
criticisms will do nothing better on you, better ignore them and keep life going

JamieDedes said...

A croaking good time. Loved the story and the illustrations and vid are perfectly charming. Thank you! Big smiles.

Mariuca said...

Good morning Bananaz! :D:D:D

You are so right... there's no pleasing everyone... will have to let go of certain criticism and move on to happier thoughts.. have a lovely Tuesday! :D:D

Bananazஇ said...

cHrIstInA_YY இ speak no evil haha.

bluedreamer27 இ only hear constructive and positive words for self improvement.

JamieDedes இ Croaking big smiles back :) hehe

Mariuca இ Good afternoon! Yeah have to keep the positive mood up at all times & Happy Tuesday!

Wai Kitt said...

Agreed with you too!just sometimes we can't think in such positive way only.

Bananazஇ said...

Wai Kitt இ Sometimes in life things can be so small yet we worry sick for nothing..haha.

Autumn Belle said...

I can still remember those days when I stayed at the countryside, I used to hear the frogs croaking loudly for the whole night whenever the rain stops. They were really noisy and I thought there was a whole army of them croaking and croaking into the night. Now, which is better, real croaking frogs or those jumping, hopping political frogs?

Bananazஇ said...

Autumn Belle இ Know what you mean stayed in kampung before those sounds like this right ~ ing..ong..ing..ong. haha. Would accept those natural croaking frogs regardless of how ugly or noisy but not those hopping poisonous frogs.
