I Am A Dreamer

Whatever will be, shall be...

You can plan a career but you can never plan successes with contentment
General Yuan ShiKai tried to restore monarchy but was estopped by destiny

Malaya - Malayan Union (1946-1948), Federation of Malaya (1948-1963), Peninsular Malaysia (1963-present) - has never included Singapore
By 9th August 1965, Singapore gain independence and became a stand-alone State

The Three Kingdoms - Wèi (魏), Shǔ (蜀), and Wú (吳) - were stable under military accord
But, plotting against each others finally decimate their existence

In the classic, Dream of the Red Chamber (红楼梦), simple lives grew complex through fame and prosperity and into declines

When life was simple, fulfilling basic needs was the theme 
When prosperity comes, demand for luxury becomes the norm
In boom period, luxury is a necessity
When the burst comes, reverting back to basics seems impossible; sucides, depression, anxieties replace reasons

Alas! boom & burst are two sides of a coin

Strive for the best
Go for your ideals
Winner takes all and defeat is just part of the game
Weaklings and cowards are those who hold dear to winnings but surrender to failings

Nobody can make you happy or miserable unless you allow
