The Tiny Frog Story

Frog

Have you heard of the story of the tiny frog before? Ken shared it with me recently and I found it very meaningful (story below gotten from this webpage and has been built on by myself): Once upon a time, there was a group of tiny frogs who arranged a competition.

I’m a failure.

Girl lying on the bed, thinking

Last week I felt like a failure. It was just a series of events in recent period that made me feel this way, like my dad getting injured at work and having to go through surgery to fix the injury. It made me feel that I failed to care for him as a daughter (he’s fine now and going through physiotherapy); my mom...

While Marie-Anne is 60, she asks a question that’s actually shared by many even in their 20s, 30s, and...

Have You Seen this Lady Before? (The Market Leader Effect)

Overexposed model:

For the past month, Ken has been telling me about this stock image model who seems to appear everywhere. He would point out her ads whenever we chance by them (for example, there’s this storage solutions ad near our home with her in it; she’s also in Teamviewer ads, and we use Teamviewer), but I never really believed him. I...
