    Lets not get confused with smiles from the service industry versus smiles from the general populace (which we are refering to here)... Heck, those service-related you go to karaoke bars you also get "smiles" whad?

    Yeah, you start with a basic dSLR + kit lens. You wish to move on to a FX cam and the full range of trinity lenses. Does it end there? NO! You will want to go for the best - an arsenal of top of the range Prime lenses. After that, you find that it is too heavy to lug around 3 huge lenses and 2 bodies around.

    For housing, many of us started off with a HDB 5rm. And then move on to a condo. That ain't enough la. For more space, move up to a semi-D, with lots of space and privacy, you own car park lots. And the ultimate would be a "Good Class" bungalow.

    Well, expectations, needs, wants - all these is never a constant. The goal post keeps shifting, as we are never satisfied with what we are. When do we start running our marathon and when do we end????

    Unless you're a pure Buddhist, you dun need any expensive gadget, no need for a worldly possession, nothing to fight for, no need for prestige, pride, possession and just be humble and contented. How ideal.

    At least there is a "room" you can count on...not to mention a solid one! It's not like a "huff and a puff" can blow it off, or would you prefer a "cardboard" shelter over your head?...

    Happiness like love is a personal decision. So have you decided to be happy or sad today?

    You hit it on the head.. the goal post keep shifting. What may be critical for u now may be not be a priority in the future. Be it cameras, cars, accommodation, everything will fluctuate in priority over time. But as an individual, when u close your eyes for the last time - nothing earthly matters.

    Many people miss their share of happiness, not because they never found it, but because they didn't stop to enjoy it. ~William Feather

    After talking about this over so many pages, I'm sure you guys (and gals) know by know, happines is just a feeling, and it's relative... SO,

    If you want to be happy, be. ~Leo Tolstoy
