This place where I come from, this haven we all call home – never would have been without you.

Thank you Mr Lee Kuan Yew.

What an honour it has been for me to be born in this era, to enjoy the fruits of your labour. Today we mourn the loss of our one and only beloved grandpa who fought so hard all these years. Too many lessons to learn from you, too much to say. I’m just really thankful for all your contributions and the way you loved the nation so selflessly. You make me feel so small.

A visionary, a great leader who gave up his life to give us ours – that’s our founding father for you.

Thank you, Sir. May you rest in peace.

sometimes the happier someone looks, the sadder/lonelier he is. it’s true. we just have to open our eyes bigger and listen with our hearts. sometimes we just have to make the effort to look past what is on the outside… in order to see what someone is protecting.

the question is not how difficult it will be. it’s whether you care enough to make the effort.

you’re damn right – i haven’t maximized my potential. but my potential is not to be wasted on something not worth my time.

i don’t have to be rich, but i cannot ever be poor

Family isn’t always blood. It’s the people in your life who want you in theirs; the ones who accept you for who you are. The ones who would do anything to see you smile and who love you no matter what.

so here’s a little something i just read which i thought was worth sharing.
