there r millions of arman out there..

that's just how life is..

we r either too busy chasing after somethings in life that we ended up overlooking some other things (which could be even more meaningful to us), or, we thought that we're already living a perfect life that what we have is already enough...

hmm....i think this is why people say that we should enjoy each moments in life n just be grateful of what we have...

a simple solution to NOT be like arman is --> NEVER stop exploring this awesome whole wide world...
