Millennials—I think if you call a group of Gen X for a backyard barbecue party, they will have the most fun complaining about millennials. Their main points will be predictable nevertheless: (a) too spoiled, (b) too much crave for praises, (c) everything was harder back in our days.

This morning, I made myself a glass of chocolate Anlene, read The Silver Linings Playbook for 30 minutes, did a full body stretch for 15 minutes, showered, get dressed, and attend work.

Think I got time to calculate this angle that angle kah when I want to go down the stairs or what?” There … Continue reading Why I Am Always On The Hunt for New Knowledge
“After long conversations like these, I feel smarter. And smart is always a good feeling,” I said, as I placed my teh tarik kurang manis back onto the table in front of me. Everything was splashed with hues of orange and yellow spilled by bright filaments in a little musical eatery owned by Haji Noh. I was, after a long period of dullness and losing … Continue reading ‘Smart’ Is A Good Feeling
Warning: You might find Manglish and Singlish in the following post. Acceptance. Such an easy concept to implement to achieve happiness, but such a complicated one indeed. I understand every part of acceptance, and at one point in life, practiced it for personal healing. Acceptance is a (if I’m allowed to say), a way of pursuing life to the greatest contentment, and achieve true happiness. As a … Continue reading How ‘Acceptance’ Can Mean ‘True Happiness’!
