The Dalai Lama, when asked what surprised him most about humanity, answered "Man. Because he sacrifices his health in order to make money. Then he sacrifices money to recuperate his health. And then he is so anxious about the future that he does not enjoy the present; the result being that he does not live in the present or the future; he lives as if he is never going to die, and then dies having never really lived."

    We must start living now and stop chasing money!

  2. HI!
    This is just the perfect quote that I needed to start writing for my new blogging category of LIFE!
    Recently realising that being rich in net worth is actually just half of what I truly desire in life, do I have to start noting down my bucket list uh? I’ve still got sixty years to complete them though.. 😮

      Hi IA,

      How’s life in NS ? Heard it will be the most beautiful experience for guys. My guy friends can’t stop talking about it until today :).
      Well, Kaileigh was only 19 when she wrote her bucket list. Since you have so much time, maybe you can help Kaileigh checked off her bucket list first.
      Check out for her story.
      The beauty about having a bucket list is when you checked off each item in the list, you feel alive ! :).

      • Hi Lady,

        There’s still a couple of weeks left before my enlistment. Yea, I guess being confined for three weeks living as a minimalist does seems like a beautiful experience. :-/

        Hmm, just saw the touching video documentary. Sure, I might help her check them off as a start creating my own bucket list too.
        Although I have never felt more alive every day, I have never had a bucket list. Life is always great, if you want to look at it that way 😉

  3. I hv a differing view on bucket list. Lol….

    I find that the bucket list is a to-do list. Maybe good for ppl who procrastinate on stuff. For me, i find myself doing too many things. Till i hv no interest to do anymore things.

    I wanna do nothing!

    I wanna stop doing…and start be-ing!

      Hi Pf,
      Hahaha wow! Sounds like you have a very happening life. 🙂 I remembered one reader ask me to add this in my bucket list “Learn to do nothing and not go insane. : )”. I cannot, I WILL GO INSANE ;-p

  4. Hi!

    Been reading your blog for past few short months, truly inspire me and very genuine post. Do you think still good to buy starhub stock now?


    • Lady, You Can Be Free

      Thanks ! I’m glad you’ve been inspired. I don’t think starhub is that great a stock nowadays esp. at this price level, you probably would want to wait for another round of plunge like 2008. Their competitor seemed relatively more attractive (*RED*) and stable. But please do your own due diligence. I haven’t been pouring into their reports and numbers lately.
