10 Commandments For A Smart And Simple Life

Dear Blogger,

Today is the last day of national mourning for the passing of Mr Lee Kuan Yew. People have already lined up along the procession route since the break of dawn. As for me, I still have mommy duties and student assignments and all the mundane things in my life to do. Just goes to show that the world still spins no matter who dies.

Every death calls for a reflection. What have I done with my life? How can I make my existence more meaningful? Looking back, I've done quite a lot already. Not as newsworthy as some people have done but on my own capacity, I should be proud for what I have achieved.

Kathy Gottberg from Huffington Post has written a practical list on how to be happy. She lives a minimal lifestyle, something that most Singaporeans can learn from. Seriously, how many mobile phones do Singaporeans need??? I should ask myself that. I have an iPhone 4, 5 and 6, all in working condition. Anyway, I digress.

Here's Kathy's list, but for more details, read her article in Huffington Post.
