If we could fly back in time when there is only 2 brands of shampoo, conditioner, soap and moisturizers, then girls who go shopping, will be back home earlier than today.


Now, there is an overload of products on display. Just selecting a shampoo for the first time consumes a lot of time, specially when you read product labels.


I am just observing outside this store and see Nenia's confused face what to select. I am thinking that if Nenia will read all those labels displayed there, this means I will be standing outside the whole day or two waiting for her.


While waiting outside, I remember my mother, while she is still alive, that she only uses a lime to make as a shampoo. She does not go to stores shopping a shampoo. She only pick one or two lime from our lime tree at the yard, slice it, got the juice and apply to her hair. I can still smell the freshness of lime in my mothers hair until this day. Memories linger in my mind.


Those were the days. We are now living a very different lifestyle. We are bombarded with so many brands of every product, with their glittering labels, from catching yellow up to any color available to catch every eye's attention.


Now, we dont always know, how Satan manipulates every situation so we run out of time to a more productive and important work.


I wonder, what will be in the new system in store for us regarding shopping?
