"One of the most tragic things I know about human nature is that all of us tend to put off living. We are all dreaming of some magical #rose garden over the horizon-instead of enjoying the roses blooming outside our windows today."

"The Paradoxical Commandments"

People are illogical, unreasonable, and self-centered.
Love them anyway.

If you do good, people will accuse you of selfish ulterior motives.
Do good anyway.

If you are successful, you will win false friends and true enemies.
Succeed anyway.

The good you do today will be forgotten tomorrow.
Do good anyway.

Honesty and frankness make you vulnerable.
Be honest and frank anyway.

The biggest men and women with the biggest ideas can be shot down by the smallest men and women with the smallest minds.
Think big anyway.

People favor underdogs but follow only top dogs.
Fight for a few underdogs anyway.

What you spend years building may be destroyed overnight.
Build anyway.

People really need help but may attack you if you do help them.
Help people anyway.

Give the world the best you have and you’ll get kicked in the teeth.
Give the world the best you have anyway.

How about some #Mala #HotPot during a rainy day like this? We tried the dry mala with medium spiciness first and liked it. Then we ordered the #soup based mala and love it! You can choose any ingredient that you like or choose from the set meals.  (at S11 @ Ang Mo Kio)

#Piranhas in #SingaporeZoo #RiverSafari
Caimans like to eat piranhas, and so do other, larger Amazon fish. The pink dolphin, or boto, of the Amazon is another enthusiastic eater of piranhas.

Predatory, fish-eating birds such as egrets and storks are also fond of eating piranhas.

And, what does a piranha eat? Piranhas mostly eat other fish, and occasionally, other types of animals.
All ecosystem is a chain. Karma will only be unkind if you are.

When a tree has been transplanted, though fierce winds may blow, it will not topple if it has a firm stake to hold it up. But even a tree that has grown up in place may fall over if its roots are weak. Even a feeble person will not stumble if those supporting him are strong, but a person of considerable strength, when alone, may fall down on an uneven path.

#Qingming Jie (#清明節) Tomb Sweeping Day 
Early morning, paid #respect to my #dad. 
Our body is just a shell. When our body has been used, we decide at a point that we need to change a new shell therefore we all die to stop suffering and pain to pay back for the karmic actions we did in our past life. The soul will continue to find a new shell to carry on a next life to  reincarnation. #Imissyou #daddy
