Plant your own garden and decorate your own soul, instead of waiting around for somebody to give you flowers"
Remember to count our blessings

I stood in the arrival hall, looking into the glass panel in front of me. Damn this barricade, i thought. I wish i could go closer to the panel so I could see clearer. I was excited. I haven't felt this excited to receive someone for a long time.
Who is this someone? It is an old lady who waited all her life to fly. Sometimes, we wait a lifetime for a special moment. After 79 years of waiting, at last... that moment is finally here.
And then, I saw her. Her eyes were teary and it was obvious she was overwhelmed by emotions.
Singapore... So this is the place my daughter has been working for 20 years. This is the place where my fellow village women dream of going to for a better future.
Finally, i'm here. Finally, she's here.
She's a reminder for myself to appreciate what I have.
