Kiss goodbye to more junk stuffs!!

To celebrate the New Year, i have been decluttering my bedroom even more.

I did an intense clearing of my bedroom about 3 months ago, and the room did get more spacious and more room to relax. However, i found out that it could even get more spacious with the help of my sister.

She came for a visit and we shared the idea of minimalism. She looked at my bedroom and with her fresh view, there are more questions about whether i need these stuffs??

So it took us 2 hours this morning to throw another few more bags for recycling.

I feel great and now i am in love with my bedroom even more. It could well be a great place to find my calm self and meditating every morning or night.

Simplify your relationship

I found that the more you expect from your partner, the more chance that you will get disappointed.

So why don’t you simplify your relationship, simplify your expectations, it is more likely that you will get happier.

I have applied this method to my marriage, and it actually works, i have more time to enjoy life and focus on the positives, instead of wasting time getting stress over my relationship.

Expect nothing, everything will be a bonus in your life and you will feel that you are so blessed and your life is full of lovely surprises and happiness.

Let ‘s have the happiest new year of our life starting today!


Love and courage

  • “Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength, while loving someone deeply gives you courage.” – Lao Tzu.
  • Keep your love alive everyday !

Focus and simplicity

“That’s been one of my mantras – focus and simplicity. Simple can be harder than complex: You have to work hard to get your thinking clean to make it simple. But it’s worth it in the end because once you get there, you can move mountains.”
Steve Jobs

Great saying from Steve Jobs !!

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.
