“That’s why we sbould expect the best for each other, not fear the worst. People tend to move, subconsciously, in the direction of other people’s expectations.” – quoted from Iris Chang’s email conversation with her mother Ying-Ying Chang titled The Woman Who Could Not Forget.
I have many friends and people around me who are always curious about my interest in Japan and its language.
Usually, the first thing I would say is the language. I enjoy the language mainly because of Hiragana and Katakana. I like the characters and I feel a good sense of accomplishment that I am able to read and understand them. Since young, I enjoyed animations like Doreamon and watching them in Daimaru supermart in Liang Court last time. I have always wanted to know what they were talking about and understanding the language so that I would know what is it all about.
Finally I found someone that enjoys museum visits too.
Thank you National Heritage Board (NHB) for free entry to local museums where you just have to flash your pink/blue IC at the counter and you get a free ticket to enter the museum.
The National Museum of Singapore is currently having two temporary exhibits – Genesis by Sebastiáo Salgado and We: Defining Stories by various photojournalists featuring iconic events (good/bad) that happened in Singapore.
The day started by knowing Hello Panda became LIVE. 😱
Headed to Songs of the Seas with Geraldine after work. While queuing for tickets, I assisted a Chinese tourist family by printing her tickets for Songs of the Seas by manually entering her barcode into the system.
With the encouragement by my intern Anjuli, I decided to challenge myself by starting the challenge of #100happydays. Life is too short to be unhappy, with that, I shall start my #100happydays today!
I decided to pick up a book to read from the National Library and this book was so amazingly written that I decided to write a book review for this book that I have read – please pardon my first attempt on a book review. 😉 Special Thanks to http://www.book-review-circle.com/book-review-guidelines.html on its guidelines on writing a book review! 🙂
