Family bonds…I’m grateful that such ties do not disappear regardless of the time spent apart.

Esther Choo

Just being around loved ones, relaxing and…simply doing nothing.

Phang Choon Moy

My wife who manage all our household expenses well so I can focus on other matters.

Robert Low

Many things, really. Like walking through a park at midnight and not getting harmed.

Melissa Poon

 

Warm showers with clean water; weekend brunches with old friends… and a cup of Milo!

Aisha Abdul Rahman

I consider myself lucky to have such a great family, some wonderful friends and to have enjoyed life so much so far.

Paul Russell

A clean f lat! Too often, we take for granted people like the aunty who cleans our f lat. Maybe we should spend just that few seconds thanking them.

Tan Hui Xuen

I’m grateful for the opportunity to travel for my job. It gives me the chance to explore new places and meet all kinds of interesting people.”

I’m grateful for the people around me, who never fail to give me support to tackle my endeavours.
