Walking on the bright side of life

The First Five January 10, 2011

The start of the new year is always harsh. After weeks of holidays, it seems harder to get the “engine” to start. I had a very busy first week, with school and work going at full force. Good news is, I will be completing my final module in another week!

So here are the five things that made me smile this week:

1. Being by the beach instantly calms me down. It is truly my happy place. Over the weekend, I accompanied Sherman down to the beach since he was itching to windsurf. I laid out a mat and sat by the beach, reading a book, people-watching and just enjoying the sea breeze. The weather was deliciously cool (I was wearing a sweater!) and I fell asleep for a good half an hour. Bliss.

2. I recently signed up for a yoga membership near my workplace and I have really been enjoying bikram yoga. It is a 90 minutes class with a series of 26 poses, all done in a heated room. I’m so hooked on it, I don’t even mind waking up at 5am just to squeeze in a class before work on some days. Yeah, I’m that hardcore.



3. One night, Sherman and I went to this cute little place called The Biscuit King. I swear it has all kinds of childhood knick-knacks you can ever find in Singapore! Magic dust is no childhood stuff, but I was craving for candy and this caught my eye. A perfect snack for long boring night lectures! 😉

4.  If you haven’t read this yet, I strongly recommend it. It got me laughing out loud a couple of times and some never fails to make my heart melt. Such a sweetheart.

5. The rain. I absolutely love the rain this time of the year. Everything just feels that much more cozy and warm. I’d love to spend the day snuggling with a hot cuppa tea and a book but oh well, good weather nevertheless. It gives us the perfect excuse to do silly things like writing “I love you” on the car windows *giggles*

What are your happy things? Share them with me please! 😀
