Lashaan: Doesn’t hurt to remind everyone what Gandhi once said right? A powerful message that everyone should in fact take into consideration. Where else will change come from if it’s not from within us first? So much can be achieved if we all took it upon ourselves to become a better self every day. Becoming a self that you want others to see, acknowledge, appreciate and model off.

So what do you say? Shall we begin, if not already? 🙂



Trang : This quote is so important to me right now. I’m in the middle of my life where everybody expects me to settle down, to figure out exactly what I want to do or who I want to be. Life is all about experiencing and taking risks, SEEKING PERHAPS.



       I like how time flies by so fast. It’s already November and a lot of us are probably in the middle of their first trimesters. I didn’t even see all the days go by, it just baffles me everytime. I guess that’s what happens when your head is between the pages of books almost every single day. I’m quite stunned by the amount of reading I have to do just to work on my thesis and for my seminars. At least, all this reading is quite fascinating! So many things to learn about. I’m quite glad I was still able to plug in some me time here and there. Otherwise, I wouldn’t know if I’d still be sane. Or have I already lost it?

Yours truly,



  • I think inspirational and hopeful quotes are much needed these days! I particularly like Trang’s, expectations have killed the simple pleasure of enjoying a day or a small victory. All I hear is “so what’s next? What are your plans? What are you gonna do?” as if the present was not important and I had a limit date to decide on my whole future. But it looks like yelling “leave me alone!!!!” does not help much, haha!
    Have a great and not-too-busy November!

    • I totally agree. We’re so enthralled in this idea of thinking far into the future and doing everything in our power, every single day, to achieve it that we simply forget that life isn’t meant to be rushed. People need to embrace the present day, the moment, and know that even that does wonders for our future. This is not to say that we should also completely forget about preparing the future though! 😛 Have a wonderful November yourself!
