Goals in life

Everybody has a list of things that want to do in life. People ask me, Don't you want to buy a bigger car? Do you dream of getting a house one day?

I admit that I have a list of things that I want to achieve. Why? Because if I can and have the opportunity, I want to try. I don't want to give up without a fight. However if you ask me, what is your goal in life? My answer is this.

It's not to earn the highest position in my career.
It's not to get a bigger house.
It's not to get a bigger car.
It's not to travel around the world.
It's not to have a list where I need to cross off all the items before I reach 30, or 40 or 50.


If I can grow old holding Yin How's hands everyday.
If I can have a few children who will visit us every weekend with my grandchildren.
If I and all my loves ones can live life healthily without any traumatic experience.

I would be fully contented in life. And it doesn't matter what I did or not not achieve in life. Because at the very end, it doesn't matter how big your house is, or how much you achieved in your youth. What matters in the end is that you get the luxury of waking up every morning to see your love one beside you, and that every now and then the doorbell rings with your love ones coming in to fill the house with warmth and laughter.

Yin How and I recently forgot how to hold hands because we were too busy with everything else. When I look back, all the things I was stressed out about a week ago just seems so meaningless.

Now, all we can do is to hold hands and each other. And I'm glad that I have his hands to hold.

Last year, we did this to our boss.

Last year, my dear boss got prank

No matter how high ranking a person is in an organization, in the outside world that person is just like any other person. A father, a son, a husband, a brother, a friend to someone out there.

And you'll be really surprised that if you spend time getting to know that person over lunch or dinner, that person no longer is intimidating. He is just another person like you.

The higher you go up the ladder, the lonelier it gets. That person reaches out, yet hardly anyone wants to reach back. One employee makes the effort to say Hi just for the sake of wanting to say hello. 

Yet, it's so hard for most.

(I know this is an utterly boring post, but I'm just very frustrated right now)

Eat, sleep and be beautiful

Dear Genny,

Your hideous caterpillar has finally turned into a beautiful butterfly a few days ago. I saw it in the morning before I went to work and I let it free. Such a simple thing of nature brightened up my day. :)

I wouldn't mind being a butterfly. You start life eating the whole day. Then you turn into a cocoon and sleep. And when you wake up, you turn into a beautiful beautiful, fly off, find a mate and be merry.

Eat, sleep, and wake up beautiful. What else could be better?

Happy 1st day of the year~~~
