Happiness Matter
My Unexpected Quality Journey of my work and life is one of Happiness, for myself, my family and others. In my journey I hope to contribute to the happiness of others, in short I am here to give, share and help people to maximize results and at the end of the journey is a Quality work, Quality Life.


Sharing some interesting thing about the Singapore one dollar gold coins. I hear-say that to bring more prosperity to Singapore economy, the only way is that all Singaporeans have to carry a gold coin in their pockets. That’s how the gold coins come about and do take note on the flower side, that it is boxed in a figure 8(octagon shape) for prosperity. Now, turn to the other side of the coin and here is another interesting finding… Do you notice the difference between these 2 coins?
The left side coin have a sad face that will bring bad luck and that’s why it was changed to a happy face. If you have the sad face coin, you have to give it away, ideally to me. For me, Chinese New Year that falls on this Sunday, Feb 10 means everything I wear or use have to be new on the 1st day of CNY. Especially, the wallet I carry have to be new and I always put 8 happy gold coins in it to bring me another prosper and good luck year ahead. So you better check not to put the wrong coins in your new bag or wallet. If you are short of the $2 dollar new notes which they are printing less this year, make sure you put 2 happy coins in the “Ang Pows” (red packets) to make the recipient happy, or……he/she will be very sad and upset with you for the whole year.

In a couple of days, Chinese all over the world will be celebrating their Chinese New year on Feb 10 & 11 as well as Valentine’s Day on Feb 14. The customs and practices give us a few days to relax and refresh. It also provides a comforting time to rest our heads & hearts to the madness of rush in the reality of life. I hope that in the next 15 days of the CNY go well with you. If not, then look at each day of the 15 days mentioned below. Make it your 2013 resolutions to practice and I believe it will help you to better your relationships with the people you engage in your life. In the end, it’s from your relationships with other people that you gain the most happiness and better for your heart.

CNY Day #01
Resolve to have peace with everyone you meet and enjoy the journey. Life journey is amaze with many surprises and great beauty. Peace upon everyone.

CNY Day #02
Resolve not to over-claim your contributions relative to other people.
It’s easy to think why you always have to be the one to clear out the rubbish or wash the dishes or that you are always the one around when things needed to be done.

CNY Day #03
Resolve that when family members return home from work, pay attention to that person, to give a warm greeting.

CNY Day #04
Resolve not to yell and nag to the peaceful, tender atmosphere of your home.

CNY Day #05
Resolve to Make A Dent (MAD) not Make A Different (MAD) You’ll be amazed at how relationship is built and people will remember you.

CNY Day #06 – Dig Deep
Resolve not to tell people to ‘quit playing around’. It is only through play that works get done. When play is missing, you ask for work-life balance. A playful day keeps burn-out at bay.

CNY Day #07
Resolve to catch family members who do the right things – make them feel appreciated, don’t always catch them doing the wrong things and nag at them.

CNY Day #08
Resolve to reach out, if your parents are still around make an effort to Love them, if you are not staying with them call them every night. Kiss/hug them every night if you stay under the same roof. They are the most important people in the world even you disagree with them.

CNY Day #09
Resolve to give yourself a technology quit time each day, after which you do not touch any technology gadgets .That way, you give yourself a sense of true peace of mind. Remember, technology is a good servant but a bad master.

CNY Day #10
Resolve to follow a simple Ritual everyday that is to take a moment every time you meet someone, to think grateful thoughts about him/her. It makes a Dent to your happiness.

CNY Day #11
Resolve not to Keep Score on Emotion, that is, I did this, so you have to do that or it is my turn as you have yours.

CNY Day #12
Resolve to keep score on your saving – A Dollar saved is a dollar earned.

CNY Day #13
