“Flow with whatever may happen, and let your mind be free:
Stay centered by accepting whatever you are doing.
This is the ultimate”.
~ Zhuangzi

Reflection by Esther
Go with the flow!
That will be the best advice that one needs to have in any given situation. Resistance is going to make things worse for an individual and the people surrounding him. Rather than going against, “flow” into any circumstance and be at ease. It is better to “flow” and accept the moments. Once we have learnt how to live our lives in that way, nothing can dampen our spirits and the life we live.

“When you look at a field of dandelions,
You can either see
a hundred weeds
or a hundred wishes”.
~ Unknown ~

Reflection by Esther
How we view life or a particular situation is entirely up to us. No one can change the way we think of something unless we ourselves allow it to happen. Rather than looking at something, someone or a situation as negative and a hindrance, why don’t we step aside and look at ways on how we can learn or benefit from it. We all have to remember that anything negative that is taking place in our life is not permanent. Everything will pass at ease if we allow our thoughts to change accordingly. We must always see every situation in our life an opportunity to advance further. We must never let a bad situation drive us to darkness, depression and negativity.

Jotter Wednesdays – Chinese New Year goodies and calories

We are still in the season of Chinese New Year (CNY). Though things are very different and quieter this year, much has not changed in terms of food and snacks for the festive. Each one of us will have our favourites of the various snacks from the festival. At the same time, it is also good to look at the calories in the cookies.

An article from the Channel News Asia, “How many calories are lurking in your Chinese New Year snacks?” by Jalelah Abu Baker gives us the calories in some of the popular CNY snacks. https://www.channelnewsasia.com/news/singapore/chinese-new-year-snacks-fat-calories-fish-skin-14159600

Of course, my all-time favourite will be Bangkit cookies and Bahulu. Yummy. 🙂
