Do you ever catch yourself saying, “where did all this time go?” because my mom always said that time goes by the quickest after varsity, and she’s absolutely right! Sometimes I feel as if I’m holding a fist full of sand inside the palm of my hand and just like time, the sand is slipping out between my fingers, and before you know it, it has all slipped away. Since I’ve known this for a while now, I promised myself that I will no longer spend time doing things that I don’t enjoy and I will also no longer spend time with people I don’t care to see. Yet, you will still catch me packing and unpacking the dishwasher every so often, because that’s just how life works.
I’m aware that I’m a little off the radar recently, I haven’t uploaded a video for ages, I don’t post on Instagram as often as I probably should, I hardly go on Twitter anymore but the one thing I’ve been keeping up to date with is Snapchat (so follow me if you aren’t already :)). Like anything, life is just moving in its own rhythm, I’ve been very busy with my studies, partly because my exam is drawing closer and closer and also because I’m going away for almost 2 weeks on Tuesday, 27 September, so I’m not sure if I’ll be able to study while I’m away. We are going to Thailand and Singapore, so make sure you follow my adventures on Snapchat so you aren’t missing out! I’ve also been keeping myself busy with real people, human beings, humans that I love spending time with instead of simply catching up on social media. One other thing I’ve been more focused on is my body, in between gym sessions and sessions with my trainer, I also do a bit of yoga and I love all of it! Can’t exactly get mad at me for living right?
I’ve always been fascinated with watches, the complexity of watches, the tiny parts that is involved in allowing you to be able to tell time. I’ve become more intrigued ever since that day I attended a watchmaking class with IWC with a Master Watchmaker (he’s Swiss btw, that’s how you know it’s legit). Attending that class has taught me why good watches, or shall I say GREAT watches are so expensive and why each and every single timepiece is a masterpiece. I feel that an individual’s choice of watches tell a lot about that person, besides aesthetically, does she like automatic or quartz, does she prefer leather strap or metal, does she prefer round dials or square dials? There is so much to tell about one’s choice in watches, each watch has it’s own story. This is precisely the reason I fell in love with the IWC Portofino Automatic Moonphase for the Laureus Sport Awards for Good Foundation, it is a limited edition with only 1500 pieces worldwide, and I had the privilege to test drive one (number 725 to be exact) for one week. The simplicity, class and elegance of this beautiful timepiece resonates with my personality perfectly, it’s slightly masculine but feminine enough for a lady, and it is beautiful yet understated.
Time is forever running, your watch may stop but time itself will forever be slipping away from you. Make sure you’re spending each and every single day with the ones you love and doing things you enjoy. Just like your watch, be someone with a story to tell.
