Beautiful Sunday

Woke up at 8am, watched the repeat telecast of Japan Hour.  They stopped airing Japan Hour since the March 11 earthquake, but now they have resumed the program, but mostly old episodes.  I enjoyed watching it even though I had watched it before, just to pick up one or two new phrases, or how the real Japanese talk.  Language learning should be a joy, not a chore.

Then went for a morning swimming in a SSC pool.  Singapore is a great place for her citizens.  There are many public facilities that you can use at a nominal fee.  Swimming pool is one of them.  S$1.30 entrance fee, I don't think that's enough for the upkeep of the swimming pool.

In the afternoon, I was at the Esplanade for its once-a-month free concert at the concert hall.  It is my very first time stepping into the Esplanade concert hall ever since it was built.  It is beautiful.  I like it.  The free concert was by some school bands, you can't expect world class type of performances, but they are good by their standard.

Life is all about personal experiences.  You can be a millionaire, but if you don't spend your money to experience life, to fulfill your own wishes, money to you is just a pile of junk.  Life is not about living in the misery of the past, or the fearful of the future, it is all about living at this very moment.  Are you happy at this very moment?  If not, what has to happen to make you feel happy?  Is it something that is out of your control?   If yes, why bother?

Life is beautiful, if you make it beautiful.  The beauty of life has nothing to do with money, neither does happiness.
