Things we value

We value things which are hard to get 

That’s what the speaker said in a seminar I attended in the office yesterday. Do you agree? 

When I put lots of effort into it, I’ll take a good care of it so that I won’t lose it. I’ll remember the journey and the hardship to get it. 

Don’t give trouble to others

人に迷惑をかけなるな (hito ni meiwaku wo kakeru na)

That’s what my Japanese teacher (先生) told us in class.

She gave an example that she usually sits upright in the plane because she feels when she does it, it will give trouble to the person behind her.

How about if the person in front of you do it? It’s a trouble to her, but at least she didn’t do it to others.

3 lessons from Inside Out

Last week I watched this “Inside Out” movie and I loved it so much. There are many moments which I found them very touching.


Here are my fave 34:

  1. Every feeling has a role.
  2. Don’t alienate your feelings.
  3. Don’t kill your feelings.
  4. Don’t be scared to show it.

Have you watched it? If you have, what’s your fave? If not, go and watch it, I recommend it.

Soccer team

I just had a full week workshop with my company. Some colleagues were flying in from U.S., Japan, Korea, Australia, Shanghai and India while some of us are based in Singapore. The workshop was quite intense, lots of information needs to be churned. And I learned a lot.

Mind channeling

Mental contentment is to accept situation beyond our control and channel the negative energy to a positive thoughts (tri_spirit)

A quote I saw last week which reminds me that how tough the situation is, it’s up to me how I will act on it. 

So, I’m telling myself, if I have some worries and can’t get it out from my head, rather than worrying it or panicking, let’s go out, do some jogging or swimming or cycling or maybe just walking. Get my head refreshed and maybe I have idea how should I do to solve it.

And another quote is

I like thinking big. If you’re going to be thinking anything, you might as well think big. (Donald Trump)


Shinagawa Daichi: Once they label you delinquent then the label will stuck with you forever

Adachi Hana: The first time I met you, you were willing to do something for someone you just met. So I think you’re a nice guy. Isn’t it just you trying to keep the label? We have the option to change

Yankee-kun to Megane-chan (ヤンキー君とメガネちゃん)

I’m following 37.5度の涙 (37.5° no Namida) drama at this moment and one of the main characters is played by Narimiya Hiroki (成宮寛貴) whom I used to hate so much because of his role in Bloody Monday (ブラッディ・マンデイ), and I found that his character in the current airing drama is not bad. And then I stumbled into his older drama.

It’s a little slow to get to the point in the first episode, and I think the Adachi Hana character is a somewhat noisy, but it has few good lines. So, I’ll watch it too.
