Day 40 - Where Do We Go From Here?

Spent another morning in Sentosa - it really is a beautiful place. A bit trying-too-hard, but beautiful nevertheless.

Went to Queensway to surprise my uncle Brian with a visit - it was great! I feel like since I've been back here, I've had all these conversations with friends and relatives that haven't happened before.

Was only planning to stay for half an hour or so but before I knew it, it was almost 6pm and time for Soup Kitchen - time flies when you're having good conversations, eh?

We managed to pack and deliver the food early so I was home before 9 - wanted to spend time with the parents but the late nights of the past week caught up with me and I was asleep by 10.

I feel awful about it now - I mean, one night I'm at home and I end up sleeping at 10pm.

I'm having a hard time trying to work everything into my schedule - and I've come to realise one thing. When you try to make everyone happy, the one most unhappy is yourself.

I wish I could buy more hours in the day so I could properly divide my time between family and friends. And then everyone, including me, could be happy.


  1. "When you try to make everyone happy, the one most unhappy is yourself"

    So true.. so true.

    I am sure you make people happy with out even trying.
