I Don't Have Time?

I didn't really expect to hear myself say, "I don't have time".  It is what grown ups say, those people who have given up life's little happiness for money. Maybe I have become a grown up... because I am not happy. 

But what is time? Isn't it a bunch of numbers on a circular frame?

Time doesn't exist... it's just man who tried to measure the things around him. Time is but a matter of perspective. It is a product of man's efforts to put everything in order: wake up at 6, eat lunch at 12, sleep at 8. 

In this crazy world, people are all about money. Time is money.  I wonder who came up with that crap! Time is not money! Money is about you waiting for the perfect time and striking at the opportunity! It is not rushing. It is not striking carelessly. 

Ah~ But the world likes to be fast and be competitive. Important things like love and compassion are forgotten. Friends, family, everyone becomes a competitor... and thus an enemy. 

People forget about helping each other and working together. People become impatient because of the mindset that everything should be done instantly. People become cold towards others and they treat them as a thing. If you have no use for their success, then you are nobody. 

It seems that time becomes out of control when you get older. I won't be surprise if one day, we will buy time, just like how clean water is sold nowadays. 

And ah~ here I am stuck in the crossroads of my philosophies. I am compelled to live in this world but I am a human person. I don't see competitors, I see friends. As always, I am a 'pasaway' (a person who doesn't follow orders). And if someone were to rate me on how I live in this world, on it is written DOES NOT CONFORM. 

So what does a non-conformist do? Enjoy life! Go home early! Go out during weekends! I will not stop living a life. I have to find a way to be happy... and to be able to stop myself from saying, "I don't have time". 

I have to hold time in my hands.

A Full Moon: My Second Fanfiction is Here!

Heya Dearies!  Following my first fanfiction The Path of The Unspecialized (The King's Avatar Fanfic) , which was posted in Webnovel, m y next story is now ready to be published! I'm very excited to share this with you. One of the video games that I have played for a very long time is The Sims. Started around 19 years ago, thereabouts. Until now, I don't get tired of creating Sims and building houses. Though yes, there have been times where I was disappointed at how buggy the game is... but yeah, it hasn't stopped me from playing the game. Hahaha~ The Sims is a life simulation and oftentimes, I create stories for my sims. What would they look like? How would they start out? Where would they live? With The Sims 4: Vampires game pack came Caleb Vatore, who became my favorite pre-made sim. I would pair him up with a sim of my own.  And in the process of playing, I eventually got inspired to write down how their story would go in my version of The Sims 4 world. So p r

[Review] Gluta-C Intense Whitening Body Scrub

Gluta-C Intense Whitening Body Scrub is a product that impressed me on my first try. Mostly, when I review beauty products, I use it at least a week to see the effects and results on my skin. I never thought that a body scrub can make me go "wow!" instantly! I got this from my Gluta-C Sample Room haul . And I used it the day after I got it. I was that excited!  This product is packaged in a tub. It is a soft, viscous, and grainy cream. The smell is nice, too! It has a cool perfume scent.  120g tub of Gluta-C Body Scrub This is how I used this: I wet my skin and then took an ample amount of the scrub and then applied it using circular motions. Afterwards, I put liquid body wash on a loofah then rubbed on my skin. I could feel the small grains from the scrub gently exfoliating my skin. I love the combination it does with the body wash. The bubbles and the foam make it comfortable! All the while, I know that my skin is thoroughly cleansed!  Here is the surprise!

[Food Review] Everyday Tous Les Jours

My addiction with Tous les Jours started when my cousin brought home a whole load of breads from the said bakery. She recommended that their products are of high quality, while handing me their bestseller aptly called as "Sweet Black Rice Bread with Cream Cheese". Upon taking my first bite, I couldn't stop eating it up until the last piece. With that inspiration, I decided to go visit one of their stores for a closer look.  I went to their branch in SM North. The store is located in The Block near SM Hypermarket. Saturated with yellow lights and wooden furniture, Tous Les Jours had the french bakery/coffee shop aura.

Following my cousin's recommendation, I bought the one with cream cheese filling. However, I had a dilemma which one to choose as it has two variants. The one with black sesame? or plain
