Today I went for "Retail Therapy", except that in my case, I strictly control my spending. So what did I get in the end?
A few greeting cards (less than RM10), 4 Hair Scrunchies on offer for RM10 in total, and a sponge (for make up purposes... Haven't put on make up for quite a while now.
While trying on countless beautiful heels that were beautiful but din't fit me in many of the shops, I heard the following song playing in the background. And started singing along to it.
For those who are wondering, this is the song "Hong Qing Ting" ,literally translated as red praying mantis. Its a classic song,first heard during my childhood days... And then not heard of for a long time. Until now, playing in this little shoe shop.
Listening to the lyrics "And when problems grow in number while the colourful marbles grow less, I know I now am slowly growing up..."We are already grown up, all are dreams are being chased now..." Except the last time I sang it I was a kid, now I no longer am. It was like a walk down memory lane, where bittersweet feelings and "life" just swirled in the jar of emotions I felt. It was just indescribable, I guess.
I know I'm not the most charismatic of the bunch, and I'm but average, whether in looks, academic, or by worldly standards. But I will strive to be best I can be, by God's grace. :)
And hopefully, the next time I hear this song playing again, I'll have acheived something in life...
