"When I was young I set out to change the world.
When I grew older I perceived that this was too ambitious,
so I set out to change my state.
This too, I realized as I grew older, was too ambitious,
so I set out to change my town.
When I realized that I could not do even this, I tried to change my family.
Now, as an old man I know that I should have started by changing myself.
If I had started with myself, maybe then I would have succeeded
in changing my family, the town, or even the state-
and who knows, maybe the world."

Take a break

Works were completed. Deadlines were met. Goals were hit. I felt so light mentally. 'let it go, let it go' (ya, that movie). Anyway, there will be a good news to officiate soon, which I knew it already. So, last week, it became my family day.

I met up with my parents and usually I have to come to Genting Highlands. Everytime. Well, it is a famous tourist place in Malaysia that people come for enjoying chilly weather and mountainous scenery, riding cable cars,  visiting the casino, feeling like in overseas, and all sorts of things (and the new theme park is going to be ready soon). I do visit the casino occasionally, usually not me. It supposed to be family time. Mainly, I love having meals together with my parents, chatting, and then taking a walk with them.

Breakfast time
In the hotel room, there was a wide window allowing me to see very far outside -- a view with mountains and the sky. Wow, this is a thing! To me (not the first time though), that was an eye-opening view. No doubt, there is world out there!! So, I spent the best morning time taking a light breakfast (i.e. a cup of coffee and cookies) and reading, and looking at the view outside (just like the picture) and thinking... (yea, music).

This truly gives a boost to my brain.
