It's the second week of the semester break
and I'm a part time worker now.
Typical me during holidays.
I just don't like sitting around doing nothing
even though for this semester break
I do have some other plans
but I figure out to keep the money flow coming in
here I am.
Trying to find some clean income.
May my efforts be blessed.
I've been working here for three or four days
and I observed a lot.
Yet there is this one main thing
that kept on dragging my attention.
It's the nature of customers
I've been dealing with.
Of the favouritism
for something sweet, nice, & good-looking
over the bad, not tasty & ugly things.
Let it be food & beverages
clothes & apparels
or even delicate things like memories & happenings.
Humans, they just love keeping things sweet
while despising its bad twin.
|Not my pic.|
I come to realize
that even though it's a common thing
and sure, it's good to cling on to sweet things
This nature itself
makes men mislead of the fact
that most medicine is bitter
and sweets are one of the cofactors of diseases
that sweet things pamper & bedazzle people
while bitter, sour or even tasteless things
become the best teacher of men.
To heal from a particular sickness
we need to consume antibiotics & pain-killer, whatever they are
and they aren't sweet.
To move forward in life
we need to put a lot of effort
and that's not a sweet thing, as per say.
Thus, I believe
while the nature itself
isn't a flaw to begin with
we should also not let ourselves
be mesmerized by them sweet things
for they are just illusions
keeping us clinging around
failing to scale it higher
towards a better human in us.
For that, I'm still relieved
that I can't find a highly frequent customer
Like, awat makan donut hari-hari ni?
Nak jadi bulat macam donut gak kaaaaaaaaaaaaa?
That will be my first thought if such customer exists.
Ceq yang baru kerja sini sehari dua pun dah muak makan donut tau
and I can't believe it if there is a kind of people
who eats them doughnuts
macam makan nasi.
To let go off the sweet, nice & tasty things
and to accept the awful, bad & ugly side of them
is the secret to get over the bridge.
Probably. Who knows?
