About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Random acts of kindness ? :-)

ABOUT ME

Just a simple and happy person most of the time. =D

Sometimes, I can look a bit serious especially when I am doing some thinking but it doesn't mean that I am angry. When I am relaxed, I guess I can also be fun to be with. =D

Well, I enjoy outdoor activities and nature and of course traveling & good food included. Most people find me a cheerful person and I guess they are right. Should you like to know more, can I leave the rest to you to find out? =)

Take good care and stay "Happy Always" :-)

PHILOSOPHY

The happiest people don't have the best of everything.
They just make the best of everything!

There is more satisfaction in giving than getting.

The richest person is not the one who has the most but the one who needs the least.

Collect beautiful memories; not things.
