Kitty frowns at you

It's disturbing how every morning, the trains of Singapore turn into a warzone, with people pushing and shoving just to be the first on the train. And at school and work, people vigorously battling it out just for a mere sliver of opportunity.

Sure. Life is hard. But will fighting harder for the same pool of resources make it any more plentiful? Will it make us happier people? No.

Where did the civility and politeness that we had all learnt as kids go to? Have we forgotten how to share and compromise?

Think about it.
When was the last time anyone bothered to stop and smell the roses? Does anyone ever notice how beautiful the clouds look? Or the saccharine sweetness of a kitten's purr?

Stop being so caught up in work and the city bustle. Stop using work as an excuse to ignore the world around us.

Start living.
