The good life is built with good relationships.

What keeps us happy and healthy as we go through life? If you think it’s fame and money, you’re not alone – but, according to psychiatrist Robert Waldinger, you’re mistaken.

As the director of 75-year-old study on adult development, Waldinger has unprecedented access to data on true happiness and satisfaction. In this talk, he shares three important lessons learned from the study as well as some practical, old-as-the-hills wisdom on how to build a fulfilling, long life.

Robert Waldinger TedTalk.

More than a century ago, He was looking at his life and he wrote this.

There isn’t time, so brief is life, for bickerings, apologies, heartburnings, callings to account. There is only time for loving, and but an instant, so to speak, for that.

by Mark Twain


Family Trip

Till today, As I sitting down beside this small gentlemen (my son). I am so grateful for everything I have in my life.

Of course in life, there are many challenges you will face, the up and down of your life, misunderstanding, disappoinment with close ones and etc.

I see and will always see, the bright side, a positive things or the thing I can learn from that situations. Also I enjoy and embrace every good thing in life, every moment of it.

We just done our family trip with my parent, it’s a first time this arrangement happen, how rare it is! It can only happen because he (my Dad) was encouraged by my mom to take a time off for awhile. At last, he agreed and set to go for Taiwan. The only country that speak his language, hokkian!

We spent a lot of quality time together, seems like the missing time I have with my dad is treasured even though only for such a short trip.

Since I stay and work in Singapore, I have limited time to meet them and spend time with them. And also it’s a good time for my wife to get to know a little bit more about them.

I loved the biking time, it’s like seeing them remembrance of their younger time, you know like those 60s 70s time. Dating with bicycle.
