Ufone's Background Music

Posted by Dinky Mind on Friday, February 26, 2010 in , ,
A few days back I tuned in the radio for some news update. In the next 10 minutes, I heard this of Ufone's new service's ad for around 15 times from all the different radio channels combined. And every time I heard it, it made me think even more strongly as to what are trying to cram in the mind of youngsters?

Ufone is aggressively marketing these days against Zong, Warid and Mobilink. Providing a plethora of services, it is hard for a customer like me to even remember 3 of all of them. The kind of ads they make are (to some extent) witty and fun to watch, but the original concept and the details of the new services sadly are not properly conveyed. I had to watch this ad for 3-4 times to fully understand what were they trying to offer.



So, that day, I heard a different ad of the same service - Background Music. Let me give you a rough idea of it (I can't find that clip on Youtube, and I haven't seen that ad on TV). There were two guys and they went to a restaurant for lunch/dinner. One guy's dad called him up and the second one tries to joke "What are you going to tell him now?" So the first one asks him to stay quiet for a while, presses a few buttons on his phone, recieves his dad's call and starts lying, "Dad, I'm at the library, working". And the service - Ufone's Background Music saves him as he had set a keyboard-clicking background music tone before answering his dad's call.

My question is: How necessary was it to lie to your dad about being at the (so called) library and not at a dinner party? What direction is our media trying to drift us in? By airing such ads, you're actually promoting the masses to lie as much and as easily as they want. You're advocating them to become better liars. We've already become a nation full of liars. And if we do not educate our countrymen to stop lying and become better humans, I'm sure someday we're completely going to lose our identity.

Hair Loss

Posted by Dinky Mind on Saturday, February 06, 2010 in , , , , ,
Hair fall is the most common problem with girls, but fortunately supermarkets are littered with Hair-repair formulas and Livons besides shampoos and conditioners. I think its time that these companies need to come up with products which could help reduce eyebrow hair loss (or maybe just eyebrow loss). Whatever you call it, I'm suffering badly from it =( And apparently there's no remedy.

One might argue (the female readers especially) to use eyebrow pencils instead of whining so badly. Well, my dear readers, I think if I apply the pencil, I might end up looking like Zakoota djinn! And I certainly don't want that to happen. You see, I don't have a habit of using eyebrow pencils, so if I start using one (even slightly), my brows would look extraordinarily beautiful to others and Zakoota-type to me! Ever noticed those (pastry-looking) brides? Their brows are actually plastered with black pencils and all the people go "oooo" over their Cleopatra eyes! Eeks! For me, they look...well, beautiful, of course, but a bit too overdone. Bleeekh!

Getting back to my eyebrow loss now. =( Does anybody has any remedy for it? Puhlease do let me know before I lose them all and look like an alien =( Plus, today I weighed myself after ages. Like almost after a year, maybe. And I found out I've lost a Kg. [Pop Quiz: Guess how much do I weigh now? Hint: Weight is still in positive figures =P] Instead of being happy or sad over this lost weight, Dinky Mind is highly confused. She just can't figure out if she has lost a kg of her eyebrows or a kg of her pea-sized brain, or both! =(

Cheerio folks =(

PS: This girl's eye makeover is too too awesome-ish! =D
