John Lewis Christmas Advert 2013

A simple yet direct true meaning to Christmas. Check out all their other ads too! Really made me go through a roller coaster of emotions (all good) while watching them. Give chance to humanity again!

Be kind to one another 🙂 x

December: Day 24/ Christmas Eve

As we are coming to the end of the countdown towards Christmas, it is vital to keep in mind that happiness, kindness and graciousness shouldn’t just be kept for this month, but for every day. Continue smiling to others. Continue keeping that inner peace. Continue showing love and kindness to others. Continue standing up for justice.

We tend to take those that work over time, e.g. public transport drivers, construction workers, sales personnel, f&b personnel, etc. A recent experience made me sick to my stomach. It went something like that…we were asked to change bus and none of us had tapped our cards as we exit, so when we exited the other bus, it caused quite a chaos of noise as our cards sent the machine beeping. There was a foreign couple who didn’t know what was going on, and when they asked the driver, he was trying to explain to them. Now, the foreign guy, out of frustration, called his partner and left, screaming “He doesn’t know anything. Just a dumbass stupid driver.”

I’ll let you come to the decision of how it could have been cleared out nicely, whether it was right of the foreign guy to act in such a way, should someone have stood up for the driver, etc.

Be kind to one another 🙂 x


December: Day 23

As the crazy shopping settles down in a day (or two, depending on where you are), don’t forget to make time for family, our loved ones, and especially the little ones. Remember that the gift of time is more appreciated than the gift of presents and money.
You can buy the whole world but if you can’t spend a single day with someone, it wouldn’t matter. We’re not robots. Everybody needs love.

Be kind to one another 🙂 x


December: Day 22

Ohmygawd! It’s the Eve of the Eve of the Eve of Christmas! Aka THREE more days to Christmas!

Did some last minute shopping in town yesterday, which really did test my patience. Why? Cos SOME people just LOVE to walk extremely slow in a crowded area, holding other people back. Not only that, they took up the whole walkway with their slug-like movements. I mean, c’mon!
Ok, breathe.

So, for today and the next few days if any of you are going to do the crazy stunt of shopping last minute, I do BEG of you to simply walk at a decent fast speed, or just give way to others behind who might be rushing to go first.
Stop using your phone unless you’re stationery. Stop acting like you own the mall, road, walkway, etc. Stop multi-tasking when you know it slows you down.

It could help someone in need, you never know. When you stop thinking about yourself and start thinking about others, you learn to spread happiness and joy. Now, isn’t that what Christmas is all about? Not only is it the birth of Jesus Christ, but the celebration of seeing God in each one of us as we’re all his creations – no exceptions.

Take this time to also donate some money, be it under your friends’ name or just for yourself. There’s so many charities and organizations out there, some more in need than others.

Most importantly, be kind to others 🙂 x


December: Day 18

Being one week away from Christmas, I was reminded about how our past hurts can still cause a deep pain within us. A technique to help ease this pain has helped me with mine and I hope that it will help you with yours too. It is by the authors of The Tools. I’m really bad with names but it was written by 2 authors.

Day 18: Active Love
Take a deep breathe in, close your eyes. Exhale slowly. Now, think of one person that has caused you pain. Your brain will tend to wander about at this point, but remember you’re in control of your thoughts.
See that person stand in front of you. Take another deep breathe in.
Now, the hard part comes – as you exhale, exhale out love and peace onto that person. Do it a few times till you feel a burden lightened up on you. Feel yourself transferring love onto that person.
Open your eyes and if you don’t feel any different, try it again. If you do, congrats!

Be kind to one another 🙂 x
