9.46am [Hamilton, New Zealand]: 11.46pm [Berlin, Germany]
It is the morning of Wednesday, June 26, 2013. The Hindus associate this day of the week with Lord Krishna and the planet Mercury. Apparently, the lucky colour associated with Wednesday is Green. Is it Wednesday at your end already?
Just a moment ago, I received a text from a friend who’s travelling in Europe. It was a very simple question that he asked:
Z: ‘hey, what time is it at your end?’
K: ‘9.46am, u?’
K: ‘pm? Wow, you are my yesterday!’
Despite being aware of the time difference among different destinations on the globe, it still gives me a jolt when I realised that someone is living in my “yesterday”.
I stopped typing for a moment to contemplate about Time. “Tick tock, tick tock, tick tock…” I can hear the clock droning on with the mild vibration of the fridge in the background. Time passes me by unknowingly, and all I can think about is how
sneaky precious it really is.

Perhaps, that’s where the phrase “making every moment count” comes about. Let’s make the most of every day, every moment. Have a good one, peeps! 🙂
