After a few days of rain, finally it looks like the cloud has parted and we got some B-E-A-U-tiful rays today! :D Lets just hope God doesn't snap his fingers and make it rain suddenly today-lah. ;)
Feeling really optimistic today. Surprising for a Monday but methinks its 'cause I don't have that much work to do today (aside from running errands). Heh.
I attended the Viewer's Choice Awards last week, and the best Ad goes to "Dei, Mumbai Lah!" by M1. Close second came "Anything, Whatever" kedai runcit ad. Both were great. Also met some interesting people that night, it was good fun.
Okay so lets spread the optimism, shall we?
You know, inspite of all of the complainin' and stuff we make, Singapore's a bloody great country to live in. Okay so we have a Class 1 terrorist on the loose, but he's being a good boy and not causing much trouble aside from causeway jams... so we can put the issue of Mat Selamat to the sidelines for now.
Think about it - the country is relatively safe (compared to many other countries/cities), its clean, and even after the price hike, taxis are affordable. Public transportation system is top-notch, people are generally friendly, and the weather is still better than most najor cities in the world (i.e London). Hard work is rewarded, and we've one of the strongest currencies in the region which equates to GREAT SHOPPING ABROAD! Great nightlife. The economy is doing relatively well, and there is a low poverty rate. Traffic jams are still better than other cities in the region, (try travelling in KL during rush hour - 3 hours on the same road, man), and lots of international acts drop by.
Lets put it this way - life could be a lot worse, y'know what I mean? :)
Speaking about life; someone asked me the other day, what I wanted in it. I thought for two seconds and just say, "I want to be happy." Simple, no?
Yeah, being in the industry is great, I love my job. But essesntially, I want to be HAPPY. And it may not be my job, it may not be money... its that thing you think of, if you should face your moment of reckoning, that you love the most. If your plane is gonna crash/ship is gonna sink/office chair is gonna explode... what would be the first thing that pops into your mind that you wish you spent more energy on? That's what makes you happy, luv, and that's what you should invest most of your energy into, to be happy. That's my current formula anyways. Keeps things in perspective.
Well, I hope everyone else is having a great day as well. If not, go do something that would make you happy. Heck, buy a chocolate easter bunny and bite of its head if that's your kinda thing. *big big grin*
