Little Apple, China’s Answer to Gangnam Style?

No, Little Apple <<小苹果>> isn’t an imitation to Apple’s iPhone 6.

It is an addictive song which has been making its rounds over the internet and got many people across China, singing and dancing!  It all began when two creative individuals Xiao Yang and Wang Taili, better known as the Chopstick Brothers, came together and recorded this song to promote their latest film which was released in July.  Later did they know, their hit song titled “Little Apple” <<小苹果>> became such a widespread phenomenon that caused everyone to film parodies of it.  Even the Chinese military is using in in a recruitment video!

#DeathToSelfie – The Human Race

I am going to share an inconvenient truth which a number of people will find it uncomfortable with. Not because you’re posting selfies (or wefie) on Instagram but you’re too conscious about the way you look and what others think about you.

Why Praise A Dead Person?

Thought of the Day

A friend of mine left pondering on the topic of treasuring our loved ones before it is too late. Often, we are so busy with our life and we tend to be so stingy with positive words when it comes to appreciating people around. Shall we begin by telling them how much they mean to us and how deserving they are? Praising them with words which are true to your heart and not simply to flatter. Isn’t it too late when our loved ones has left us, lying there in the coffin at the memorial service then we start reading out the eulogy highlighting only the great things and moments spent with him or her?

It is never too late, never too important, never too cliché to meet or even to drop a text to your friend or loved one, telling them the words you wish to say from your heart and celebrate the person while he or she is still around.  What are words to you, could matter so much more to the other person. Don’t wait till the person has passed on to write an eulogy and only to start tearing halfway reading through to realize how much more things you wish to say, wish to do with that person. It will be too late by then.
