dilemma? or just because they don’t have it?

Few days ago, when I read the newspaper I saw this fashion article showing various spectacles’ designs, casual, funky, corporate, kiddie, you name it! It is normal actually for having things with various of designs especially for daily needs to those people who need spectacles’ aid on vision. What really caught my attention on talking about this is there mentioned about “even those who doesn’t need spectacles also wear spectacles because of fashion”. This phrase itself i can already think of a lot of things to say about these fashion trend people, and now I am going to talk about one of these. All of us human had this same kind of habit, i dare to say not even a monk can run away from this habit, which is we always want something which we doesn’t have and when we have it we will tend to envy the opposite of it. In chinese people call it – 犯溅 . English is there any words for this I really don’t know. Anybody?

Take this spectacle’ case for example, some people who doesn’t need to wear spectacles always wanted to try to wear a spectacles (of course with no power) while people who need to wear spectacles always tend to find ways to not wear it, such as wearing contact lenses or go for LASIK surgery which i had went through on it. Luckily i did not fancy about wearing spectacles again because of this stupid fashion.

Another common daily life example. When there’s no rain we always hope for it to rain because the weather is damn freaking hot! But when it rains, we on the other hand complain that it rains everyday and therefore is too heavy and often! I think even the GOD also don’t know how to ease we these kind of homo sapiens.

Another derivation of this issue, is when we always want to have things which other people have it. However when we owned it finally, there are big chances where we treat that particular thing merely as a trash to collect dust rather than your another wife/hubby. For example again, this happens always to females, when they saw a shoe of someone which they claim that they like it a lot, they will go search through the whole world just for it. When they finally found it and bought it, after few days of wearing it, it will have the risk of being locked up in the shoe rack collecting dust and not being wear again for a very long time. Not only females, but males also have this kind of habit. Buying some gadgets for example mp3 player and not using it again for a long time after the most 2 months of using it. Getting a dream phone with loads of functions but only using 30% of the functions in it.

So, i really would like to ask anybody of you all really believe himself/herself not being what i’d said above? Or if you also have the above similar kind of experience, mind share a bit about it? 😉

Humans, maybe one of the …worst creation…

Haha! I couldnt remember if I was still 7 or 8, I curi my bro’s specs and wore it to school, and made my classmates believe that I needed to wear specs. I’d even tried to lie to my parents telling them that I couldnt see things clearly and I eagerly need specs. But they were too wise though, didnt kena tipu from me. Keke!
