Stare and you shall see

There’s this video that I’ve been trying to upload into crunchyroll for the millionth time but still failed. So just now, I decided to stare at the progress bar, millimeter-ing its way, believing that it’ll not stop if I’m looking at it.

This reminds me of one time when I was small, I decided to stare at the clock to see when the minute-hand moves. Its coz every time I turn around the longer hand of the clock would have moved significantly when I look again. I believe I was less than 5 years old that time and already I’m worried about the time. Sigh. Cursed life.

Of course, like the famous ‘saying’ puts it, if you stare too hard, you won’t be able to distinguish a change. That’s not a saying. I made it up. So it was a failed attempt. Plus, as another famous ‘saying’ goes, ‘as boring as watching the hand of a clock’, I wasn’t able to concentrate long enough before my eyes starts to wander and it was at that time when the asshole minute-hand stole a leap.

You might wonder, how’s the upload progress bar going? It stopped. Right before my eyes.

No way...I'm imagining you doing this right now...You'd probably appear scary if I didn't know there's something you're staring at...

If you stare hard enough, the minute hand goes backwards.

Last year for CNY I had steamboat for dinner, breakfast, lunch, dinner. So I thought it would be the same this year and started a count. Steamboat isn't really my thing you know...

P.S: You may not know what steamboat is. I think you call it hot pot? Or some pot? Ok Filipinos don't laugh if I'm wrong!

Hotpot for breakfast? Sounds off~~ Hehehehehehe...so what do you put inside it (for breakfasts)?

runawaycat said...

ban - I wanna see if it'll stop if I keep looking at it ma...

KM - The same as what we put for dinner hot pot. You see, the left overs from the dinner hot pot is turned into breakfast. And when we go to aunt's house, she makes hot pot too. And then everyone got lazy to think of other things to have for dinner so they took hot pot again.
