Adorable. A little girl gets to play in the rain for the very first time. If we can, we should all create such moments – for others and for ourselves. Go.


Yes, yes, I know they are a commercial entity largely selling sugared water. But I look at it this way. They can choose to run their business, in this case marketing, in one way or in another.

And I like what they are doing of late. Creating campaigns that are positive in stance and brings smiles to faces.

In fact, that is EXACTLY my vision for an entity that I am now conceptualizing called, The Joy Society. I’ll get to it this year. I’m not exactly sure when as it depends on the writing commissions and projects I receive.

But I’ve registered (inactive) and (collecting ideas).

I want to change the way people look at the world. I’m inspired largely by this verse from the Book of Philippians:

Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is of good repute, if there is any excellence and if anything worthy of praise, dwell on these things.

Good job, Coca-Cola. Shine the light, spread the joy.

I had lunch alone at Everton Park today. It was a lovely lunch. I had just finished a productive meeting. It was raining and had a hot bowl of fish ball tang hoon soup. But this is not just about the food.

As I was eating, I couldn’t help noticing this couple. They could be granddaughter and grandmother, mother and daughter or just friends. But whatever they case, they were talking and laughing all the time. When I say all the time, I’m not kidding. The obviously enjoyed each other’s company tremendously. And when they caught my eyes, and I smiled at them, they smiled back in spontaneous, innocent joy.

The Saturday lunch that warmed my belly and heart. Got more than my $3 worth 🙂

Oh, and for those of you who must see food, here is the lunch. Loads of crispy lard. I shouldn’t but I did 😉

I love the Christmas Season. This is a nice one from Muji 🙂


She is an inspiration. We need more like her. Thank you Aunty Teresa 🙂
