Mutliple Wheels

This is the normal version of my fern leaf which keeps spinning day in and day out, and in between the spinnings there come my stories; my story today, however, is not derived from that similar type.

This new one is composed of wheels in an even number, and will gradually appear as an amazing symmetry. And now, here come the most interesting part: It is more powerful than my previous single wheel.

It managed to catch a "fish" with a straight hook.


This reminds me on a story from the ancient China.

There was a wise old man called Jiang Ziya who lived in the feudal estate of King Wen of Zhou. He strategically used a straight hook that was without any bait in his fishing. In addition, the hook was placed three feet above the water.

His odd behaviour had finally pulled the attention of King Wen in one day. The King had discovered that this white-haired fisherman was actually an astute political thinker and military strategist. Of course, the story ended with Jiang Ziya being successful become the Prime Minister of King Wen.

Coming back to my Cerok Tokun, I am sure You will then agree with me the multiple wheels must be very powerful, in whatever way.

Your wheel within wheels is a powerful sight. I also like the fishing line with 'fish'

Ratty: You need to be a fisherman with some strategical plans, maybe, to use a fishing rod that come with no string.

Bengbeng: Maybe I can include some of them in my future posts. I'll try.

Glennis: It really looks like a fish, dosen't it? Hahahaha...
