Happy Days, Simple Days

Recently, work has been busy and stressful.

"Life shouldn't be so difficult." So says the optimist in me.

After careful considerations, I think the optimist is right.

I may face tough and difficult days now and then, but overall, I tend to have more happy days than tough ones.

Happy days usually do not require too much.

A well-baked cake, a warm sunny day, a great movie, meeting up with old friends, a stroll in the park after the rain, an encouraging comment on my blog, a facebook message from an old friend.

These are all things that can make my day brighter, happier.

小时候,幸福可以很简单。

长大后,简单可以很幸福。

A delicious glass of ice-blended watermelon with 
lime can really make my day too!

Thanks Petunia. I'm contemplating if I should write a blog in Chinese.. Sometimes, I do think some thoughts are best expressed in Mandarin..

Malar - oh do, if you blend watermelon with some lime juice and lime peel (just very little bit of the green part) and ice, it's a really refreshing drink!

Lrong - hehe, yes, do that when you go home.. Watermelon in Japan is too expensive for blending... :)
