    It'S Addictive

    I often find myself smiling without a reason. Well, not entirely without a reason, it's just a generic one: I'm happy. And I know I am doing that when I see random strangers smiling at me. It took me a while to realize they were actually smiling back me. Because I was walking...

    Remember when a baby smiles

    for the first time, it is a moment that brings joy, laughter, peace and hope to others. When you're full of worries, problems and doubts a smile can just make it all go away...for one moment you stop worrying and enjoy the moment. For that just one moment all is well...

    Believe In The Power Of A Smile

    They are rare, but I believe we all know someone like them. They are the individual that brightens the room when they enter, lifts up the soul, make us happy with their bubbly personality and smile.

    this past weekend was super frustrating

    and no one could bring me out of my bad mood. I went and grabbed a coffee at a local coffee shop and the girl who served me took one glance, ran around the counter to give me a hug and smiled. that's all it took to get me back to smiling.

    When I walk by someone,

    I always look them in the eye, and say "Hey!!," or "Goodmorning" as cheerfully as possible. It usually shocks them, because our society has this weird issue with acknowledging one another. After the shock fades, that person usually looks three times happier.

    I noticed that in western societies

    if a guy cold approach a girl and ask for her number, chances are he will get it. As an asian we play by different rules. 1 out of 20 guys might get a girl's number on the street. There's no right or wrong about this. But I'm just wondering, are western girls so welcoming...
