Tribute to Mr Kwek Leng Joo

To be honest, I don't really know who Mr Kwek was until his passing. What caught my attention is this:

Accompanied by a photo (below) of a family enjoying the beauty of sakura blossoms together, his post read: "This is what happiness looks like...a simple act, with people you love and absolutely nothing to do with money. For most if not all of us, as we age, we begin to lose the ability to enjoy such pleasures because of so many priorities imposed on ourselves."




Rest In Peace, Mr Kwek.

Regardless of our financial and public status (rich, powerful, poor, powerless), we came to this world with no material. We are also expected to leave this world the same, except with love and memories.


Treasure what is truly importance to you now.

      Forget about the luxury items that don't value add to our life. Don't chase after the disillusion.haha.

    1. Hi CW

      As a father of 2, having a single income to sustain a family of 4 is already remarkable. You earned your upkeep to have your time after 60s. I am sure the rainbow is not at our workplaces. Haha. No body is going to regret they spent too little time on their workplaces during their deathbed.

      If you stay healthy, you still have 2-3 decades to enjoy. :p
