How to deal with envy?

A week before 20160724, I thought that I would attend more birthdays of Honey Panda’s friend’s son [1] than Little Prince’s birthdays, due to work restriction.

What can we learn from Journey to Ixtlan by Carlos Castaneda?

Having lived in California for an unforgettable summer, I am interested to learn from Journey to Ixtlan (1972) by Carlos Castaneda.

What did I enjoy about Kyoto?

Kyoto, the cultural capital of Japan, has mesmerized me. According to Akari, if a Japanese wants to pursue business or politics,  s/he goes to Tokyo; if a Japanese wants to pursue arts, culture or academia,  s/he goes to Kyoto.

What are your favorite cafes?

On our 20150812 flight, I watched Little Big Master (2015). I cried. Sometimes, there are things that are more valuable than money, such as touching hearts and educating others. The movie highlights the HKD 4500/mth headmistress often emphasizes the importance of identifying our dreams and studying hard to pursue it, while her own dream is […]
