    In Australia the only thing we stress about is when can we send our famed cricket team to India?

    me thoughts they pulled out of the tour, and so did England.

    they gave the Kiwis a good whalloping at Adelaide though.

    oh boy. I do love my cricket.
    chicken fight!

    TS just posted out of nowhere, now also nowhere to tell us what happened to him...

    it's inside you want to fee stress or not. Nothing to do with Singapore or Thai.

    Do you know what is "no stress" in my home state? The kampung people can wait at the mountain roadside for half-a-day to take a free ride to 30km away to buy sugar and salt. But can you tahan this kind of attitude?

    Exactly.

    It's either N or C?

    The Choice you live with.

    All things are transient... You can only use something for a period of time... things happen. Things start, things end. Best is to let them be. Simple life?

    However it is very difficult for humans to abandon material pleasures
    including craving of all kinds so that they could lead a simple life.
    One of the strongest thread in their character is disobedience which
    will usually lend them to sins of destructions.

    Even though certain scientists have proven that all things are transient,
    not all of them would want to have a simple life.

    "We live only once" is the usual norm, leading them to take the
    wrong path and landing at sometimes great espenses to final destruction.

    They would rather get stressed to get what they want, just to show off
    to their peers or to keep "face".

    -------------------------------------------------------------
    “What man wants is simply independent choice,
    whatever that may cost and wherever it may lead.”
    Perhaps those who follow have either good or
    destructive consequences depending on the
    objects of their choice.

    20th and 21st century consumerism and mass media had altered our perception of happiness.

    ...which would eventually knock ourselves senseless.

    What is perceived as happiness to some now? 3k job? car? condo? credit card? MBA?
    What was happiness last time? simple life, no worries, everyone safe?

    Modern world can drive us insane.

    thankfully, i am more resistant to peer pressure than most. therefore there is no urge to one-up the next guy.

    this should not be confused when resting on our laurels, that will stifle progress. the past is not stress free either.

    btw, u need some help, counselling sessions?
