    All and Out

    It's no doubt that the sea, the beach and the ocean in overall makes us feel all the sexy stuffs; bikinis and lots and lots of skin. But then, for me, it's like spreading your arms out wide and fall into the deep, just to find yourself drowned in the sky instead. I feel free and...

    It Smells Terrible.

    By all means, it's a pretty unattractive smell, and it only ever gets worse and worse. So why do I like it?
