Quarter Life

They say that age is just a number. Youth and adulthood are determined by your disposition and outlook in life. I just turned 25 recently but I feel like I'm still 18 - not that I am immature or anything of the sort (though I do have my childish moments), but because I feel young and I want to live like I'm young. 25 is still pretty young though, right?

For  the past 25 years of my life, I can say that I have had so many ups and downs; so many controversies to overcome; and, so many battles to win. Despite having many troughs, I believe they have helped me become a better person because of the lessons I have learned from those experiences. And then there are those apexes which I will forever be grateful for allowing me to experience them. 

I am only 25 and it is quite obvious that I have yet to experience more things. But one thing I learned from living for 25 years is that life will always be a series for apexes and troughs. One day you're at your peak and the next day you are at the bottom of the ocean. While it may be depressing to have those low points, it is where we become more mature, stronger, and more knowledgeable. Without these low points, we can never appreciate the high points and work harder to maintain it. Life will never be perfect and it will continue to challenge us and give us hurdles to overcome.

Short Post: Black and White

I see the world through colored lenses. My life has always been vibrant and filled with so much color. But sometimes, unexpected things can take away all the color that you see. In an instant, it can become black and white. But no matter the trials and the hardships that can make your life dull and miserable, we should take control and bring back the luster that your life should experience.

Product Review: Haruhada Hyaluronic Acid Cleansing Water

"It is necessary to remove all traces of dirt and makeup before going to bed." - That is what I have always thought. 

But sometimes when you are so tired from work/school, you want to just head to bed and sleep immediately. And if you have very sensitive and acne-prone skin like I do, that is a no-no. Though you're so tired already, removing makeup is a must. I have always wanted to try the Bioderma Crealine H2O Cleanser because of all the great reviews I have heard. It is a non-rinse cleanser that will remove all traces of dirt and makeup. Great for lazy people like me, eh? But it is quite expensive and  as you all probably know by now, I am quite frugal when it comes to makeup (and I have an Asian cosmetics fetish?). So when my parents went to Malaysia last week I begged my mom to buy me the Haruhada Hyaluronic Acid Cleansing Water instead. It is supposed to work just like Bioderma: remove makeup and moisturize the skin at the same time.
