Thank you.

Thank you for being the one to remind me how precious and important it is to talk to our parents. 

Thank you for being the one to endure my moody tantrums, and insist on finding solutions, rather than getting impatient with me.

Thank you for your endless support and for always being interested in what is on my mind. 

Thank you for saying “Let me think, what should WE do.” when I tell you problems I have halfway across the globe from you. 

Thank you for embracing the good in me, rather than nitpicking the bad.

Thank you for your generosity and carefree heart, which always inspires me to live more and more like that.

Thank you for being my best friend; who never judges me and is always by my side. 

I love you and appreciate you more than I can say. Thankful that we are a team. ❤️

Friends.

If you happen to share a friendship where you stick by eachother in both the good and the bad, can celebrate eachothers successes without any bitterness, where you both lift eachother higher, and can fully be yourselves and even be vulunerable with, hold onto that real tight.

The older I get, the more I realise that good people are not easy to come by. Forever grateful for the few gems I have, going to hold onto yous forever.

Today,

Hey world. Today, I’ve quite alot I’d like to get off my mind and the topic is: my parents.

Working pretty much full-time recently means I spend alot more time with my parents, especially having been away at uni for so long. I realised how freaking hard my parents have to work and they still refuse to close the restaurant for one day per week. We (bro, sis and I )have been pushing this movement ever since we were staff-deprived. We always think that the quote, “What’s the point in having so much money if you have no time to spend it?” really suits my parents, and alot of parents actually.

As I was discussing this with N, she said, “It’s because we aren’t earning yet. They probably have to stress about bills.”.

I mean, I always knew our parents sacrificed so much of their time and work to provide for us; but it never occurred to me that they were actually using their hard-work, precious time and devoting their life to a 14hour work shift in exchange for our easy-going life.

I really wish I could do a career that I love, and do it well enough so my parents no longer have to live this life.

Thanks Mama and Papa,

Stay healthy and live long. You both deserve to enjoy life instead of just work.
