    you can work hard when young, give your children all the best.
    when old, they may not support you.
    still have to work hard when old. so be happy while you still can.

    tat scene has led me to think about life and this society, both old men are on the same road on the same day, one is poor while other is rich however both men will die one day.

    is life fair ? just some thoughts..
    You think life is about being rich or poor? Obviously you haven't lived it.

    Life is all about money, the more the merrier. want to get as much as possible to enjoy, buy cars, houses, ... wish one day I can just go into a shop and buy some thing I want without looking at the price tag!

    I think life is about making yourself happy first... but understanding what really makes you happy is the hard part.

    I used to think getting a job that pays well will make me happy, coz I can use the money to buy the things I want. But I realised that sometimes, "you are not the contents of your wallet", rings true to me, and things that you own would one day own you.

    Must be my curry chicken noodle lunch talking....

    Well said
    Money makes you feel GOOOOOOOOOD, even if its momentarily.
    It gives an unimaginable HIGH
    Once you experience it, you are hooked to it for life

    Some learned soul once said "Money may not necessarily make you happy, but lack of money will definitely make you unhappy". Oh boy, any day for money. Money rocks :highfive:

    (the only thing that ranks above money, at least for me, is health)
    The trouble with the world is that the stupid are cocksure and the intelligent are full of doubt....

    There are things can't buy in life.

    Some spent the whole lifetime searching for things with a price tag. Without knowing the things closest to them that is actually priceless......

    This thread reminds me one of my favourite song by 林志炫... Food for thought...

    给你一些不给一些

    你时常看见 嘿 自己的微笑 挂在另一个人的嘴边
    车窗外的风景 嘿 幻想中绵延 自己的倒影视而不见

    你时常挥手 嘿 这漫长旅途中 像和无数自己说再见
    遗憾凝成焦点 嘿 它占据你的眼 真实的画面 你让它褪远

    生命它给你一些 不给一些 这些那些 自己才是考验
    你在念着天边那座花园 我愿笑对眼前的莲

    得失都有祝福隐藏的脸 你还在等待永恒的容颜
    我愿在每个平凡刹那里面 握住无限

    It is in your mindset. If you think it is fair then it is fair and if you think otherwise it is never fair.

    U drive a one car and U also think of having a bigger one so there is no end to it..

    So be contented and be happy.. what do you think?

    Yappy & happy

    Go watch the movie/DVD of "Pursuit of Happyness" by Will Smith. It'll give you new insight about happiness of having and not having.

    Having and happy is the easy part.

    If not having and learn to be happy is the hard part. But it's still happiness with bread and water without the butter and cheese and ham and salad etc.
