Hello Friday Friends & PengYiu,

Please join me in advocating:

Make Money & Love Safety

赚钱第一; 安全在我心! & 明天一定会更好!加油哦

Jana Wang, Cinta Keselamatan


Quick Quotable

Always drink before you drive.

Mild dehydration may increase drive inattention and when dehydrated you make more driving errors. Always drink water, be hydrated before driving and you make less driving errors or like me, with coffee, I’m in control of my driving. Speed wins, Speeding kills.


Quick Question

What gives one Meaning?

What gives me Meaning?

What could give me Meaning?


Today Sharing:

Why do I read?

Reading tops my list of (F)Favorite (S) Solitude (Y)Younique activities.

 Here are a few reasons why I read and I think you should too:


(F) Fuel my intriguing

(S) Spark my Creativity

(Y) Yearning for knowledge.

(D) Do read or not to read. It’s not even a question for me. If I’m lucky enough to be able to      read, I will gladly take that opportunity to!


(A)  Adventures. Sometimes, armchair adventures are great because it’s  not confined to destinations in the real world.

(B)  Brain Exercise – My brain needs to workout and reading improves my memory. Some studies mention that it can even reduce the risk of Alzheimer’s disease.

(C) Can escape reality for a little while.

(D) Dreams to wonderland .

(E) Expand my vocabularies; Introduce, and teach me new ideas

(F) Fun & Free . Reading is probably the single most fun & educational activity you can participate in for free. And…. 3 No, No ,& No…

No, there’s no training program.

No, there’s no objective measure of the results – all the abundant evidence of reading is a therapy’s efficacy anecdotal. And…

No, reading is free. Don’t need money. I don’t know your country, in Singapore we have more than 50 libraries and not forgetting E-reading & online reading are also options and it’s free!

We always say we have no time or lack of time. That’s true because time is never your friend. In fact, time is your enemy. You have to win time over or maybe, it is not time that is the issue. It’s just purely and simply because you are not interested in reading.

Reading to me is a therapy, a rare and refreshing acknowledgment, in this age of the algorithm. There’s quite a lot we still don’t understand, and that we’ve got other options like television, movies, video games, and now Pokemon Go that offer escape, but they don’t come with any of the benefits that reading does, and they even have some major drawbacks, such as screen addiction, and reduced attention span. Read now, while waiting for the science to catch up.

Lately, you are bombarded by the media and government that the only way to stay relevant is through lifelong learning. That’s truly true, but only if you start reading. The spirit of self-improvement and continues learning starts with you picking up books, e-book or e-articles and read.

In the (F)Fast-paced, (S)Screw-up,  (Y)Younique-you & (D)Disruptive world, continuous education and learning can be achieved through reading and you have to read widely  to remain relevant.

Now, over to you, why do you read books? Or turn the question around; Why are you not reading books?


With gratitude


Until We Meet Here Next Friday… Be-Gusto

My FSY’s sharing is unscientifically and some are contributed by wife & children, friends, acquaintances. I write and share things that matter to me. I understand that everyone has their own opinions, views, & thoughts. There are no right or wrong answers. Nothing is true or untrue, most facts and data can be twisted to your favour.

To the authors, contributors and original sources, my thanks and where appropriate my apologies if I forget to quote your names.  If I took a page from your generous sharing and tweaked it into something else, something I hope will spread and the whole purpose is for sharing and sharing is caring.
