How often do you stop what you’re doing and think about time? Are you ever aware of the seconds, minutes, or hours that are passing you by? (which reminds me, do you have any idea how much time has passed since you started reading this sentence?). Perhaps you’ll be relieved to hear that it’s quite common to not think or even forget about those seconds ticking away... Remember time is technically an invisible, intangible, social construct, that was created just to make sense of our world. In fact, if you ask people around, you’ll most likely find that everyone has a different perception of time (go on, ask around before you continue reading!) There’s a popular Chinese saying, shi bu dai wo (时不待我), which translates to “time and tide wait for no man”. As one of the fastest growing countries in the world, it’s no surprise life moves fast in China, but we prefer it this way. Thanks to expert Meituan (美团) and Eleme (饿了吗) delivery drivers, there’s thousands of takeaway options to fulfill your every craving in the nick of time. From spicy meat noodles, to expertly crafted sushi, it can all arrive at your door in a matter of minutes! If life in the fast lane seems intimidating, don’t you worry we also know how to relax. Because ultimately time doesn’t exist, right?
