The Best Way For Me To Live My Life Is To Live My Life For Others

Guess where I spent the first hour of my birthday this year? The Accident & Emergency Unit of a hospital.

The day before I had slammed a door on my finger. When I could not withstand the pain any longer, my neighborhood doctor had recommended me to go to the hospital.

In the wee hour of the morning, I listened to the siren (more like wailing) of the ambulance and watched nurses running around me. There were many sickly patients, some of whom seemed to have given up on life.

It was a depressing scene.

As I sat alone, I started to receive birthday greetings through SMSes.

It was very uplifting to read the kind messages. They brought me joy and excitement despite the gloomy environment.

I also spent a lot of time to think over my birthday wish.

When I was younger, I had wished for many things for ‘I, me and myself.’ I wished for a better life and a brighter future.

Currently, my wishes are only for my friends, especially members of My HSR Family.

I wish for you to have a better life and that you will continue to teach me. Together, we will enjoy a happy, meaningful and fulfilling journey in life.










I always quote these words when I need to make a toast, “May my friends live as long as they want and may I live one day shorter. What’s life without friends.”
