Calm moment

Be calm

Be present

Be with your breath

Be happy


Minimalist in China town, London

After a solid 6 months of cutting down on the unnecessaries, such as going outs, i took my sister to China town in London. My sister does not live in the UK and visiting China town is her necessity, so here i am.

It is such a shock to me, i feel like i have just felt from another planet.

All the shops are busy and crowded, you need to queue to get into Shoryu, a Japanese ramen restaurant in China town. It took about 40 minute wait in the cold. Then you got in, the seating set up was small and narrow because there were too many people. The experience was not that pleasant because i felt like everything has been rushed and no calmness or enjoyment has been fully experienced. However the ramen was delicious, there is no point to complain any further.

A bakery shop had such a long queue, and i remembered that cash is preferred, so i took out the £10 note to pay for some cakes, just to be told that the old £10 is not used anymore. It was very embarrassing because the queue was long and i was there with the old £10 note.

I felt proud of myself at the same time because that was just to prove that i have not been slashing cash for a decent period already.

The whole day walking around China town to see thousands of people passing by. It is definitely not a place for me anymore. I would prefer a calm and quiet place where i can be calm and fully be myself rather than stressing out in a buzzing place.

Be perfectly fabulous

People can say anything about you

Be ugly

Be lazy

Be unsocial

Don’t be anything just to please the crowd

Be yourself and kind

Be comfortable under your own skin

Be you and that’s when you are fabulous

Just celebrating the real you every day and be happy

Live your life how you want

It is the only one life we have

We must make the most of our lives

I watched Bohemian Rhapsody today, it was so good and it reminded me that I should make the most of the life i have

Work hard and be true to yourself

Follow your heart, your guts and you will find your success

No matter how different you are among the crowd

Your differences make you unique and make your success only yours

No one can try to be you or steal your success

No matter how long the road is, keep going and believing in yourself

Friendship is precious

It is precious to have trusted friends by your side

They are like family

They are always there for you when you need them

They can count on you

You can count on them

They are making your life better and happier

They are there to treasure and cherish

Be open, make friends for life

Trust your instincts

No matter what people say to you

They don’t know everything about you

They speak from their perspective which is different to your situation and perspective

Don’t let people’s thought and opinion affect what you do and what you believe in

Trust your instincts

Trust your guts

Love being yourself and being who you are

No one will know you better than yourself

Saturday night

It has been a long day

But i am grateful for all the work that have been done today

I know that i will have a good night sleep

And today has not been wasted

I am looking forward to tomorrow

To unfold all the opportunities

To enjoy life a little bit more

And live a simple and happy life

When you feel happy

And you must write it down

It is a rainy and cloudy day

There is no sunshine

I attended a children concert

The queue in the rain was well worth it

The concert was a huge success

All the young and happy faces

The dance, the 🎵 , the atmosphere

The happiness and hope filled the air

The future is facing me, happy and smiley and promising

Such an amazing work of art

Its such a beautiful thing

Keep yourself busy

I realised that the more active we can be, the healthier we will become and the calmer our mind will be.

Normally after a busy day at work , coming home i only wanted to eat, lie down or lounge on the sofa, mainly being inactive. I didn’t do myself any favour, i keep my head busy with all the thought and stir my mind up even more.

So I decided to overcome my laziness and do something, start with baking for beginner. It is such a therapy for the mind, and doing wonder for keeping the body in shape
