We often remind ourselves how short our lives are, with the reasons why we should not waste it on petty things and that we may live it to the fullest possible. Heck, even clocks are everywhere here in Perth (click), and people get easy access to time wherever they are. We creatures known as humans live out our pathetic lives by the boundary of time. We define time by hours, stretching all the way to day, night and even years. We watch our time closely, and being accurately punctual in accordance to time makes out a discipline that portrays maturity and great sense of responsibility. Sadly, Malaysians have their time really screwed up casually, since their clocks will forever be late at any given instance. It has become a norm.
Since I had too much time to kill I went to the city earlier on today, and came across this shop selling watches, really expensive watches. Rolex. An incredibly expensive piece of junk.
In case you did not catch the price tag....
Man, even my tuition fees for one semester is not worth that much. To think that anyone would actually fork out such amount of money to obtain such luxury, it came to my sense that the world is indeed unfair. How I actually see it now, is just a watch, a watch that tells time, like every other watches do. What is the difference? I can drive a truck over it, and it will still be as crushed as my 20 bucks watch around my wrist now if I do the same to it.
Now think of the children in Africa, think Robin, think !!
And before you jump into the spending spree, give deep thought on how much your money can benefit the others who need it more in the wolrd
screw the Africa kids like how a poor student with a tormented life that has the power to dream and change the world like me, but lacking the financial ability to obtain a decent university education (tuition fees cheaper than the Rolex, hint hint hint) Any donation is widely welcomed. Try not to look at it in terms of charity, rather, see it as a wiser investment.
Think twice before you throw your money away to those business blood suckers !!
