The Kite flies

I love dining with my friends and colleagues, but sometimes when I think about it, the topic we talk about tends to be more entertaining, rather than informative. Bitching about the boss and colleagues could be fun, but it doesn't change my future for the better, and definitely doesn't value add much.

The past few weeks have been amazing - I got the chance to network with a bunch of enthusiastic entrepenuers, and now my email has been flooded with inspirational info sharing and discussion with my newfound friends. It isn't easy starting a business, so it's always good to be exchanging ideas with like-minded people.

And nope, I have not started any business, I just want to equip myself with the skills early - don't wait till you are thirsty before you start digging a well.

Anyway, I have started meeting some of them over the past 2 weeks to further exchange ideas, and planning to meet a few more people over the next 3 weeks. It's very much like dating, meeting someone you barely know, and get to know a person better over a cup of cuppa. Just that I'm dating guys and married women this time round. =p

I woke up early today at 6am and couldn't get back to sleep. I laid on the bed with my eyes wide open, speculate about my future plans, and it got me really excited. I turned and saw Wifey sleep so soundly, that I have reaffirmed myself on why I cannot rest on my laurels - I want Wifey to sleep for as long as she likes EVERYDAY, and not having to wake up early just to get to office work on time.

Before I left for work, I reassured Wifey that whatever I do, I do it for her in mind. But should I spend too much time pursuing things at the expense of my time with her, I want her to let me know.

Money is a good-to-have, but my Wifey will always be a must-have.

For I am like a kite.
I just want to fly high.
But I know my strings are tied.
To my Wifey who's within sight.
Should there be thunders of light.
She will give me a tug.
That's where I know it's time.
For me to stop the flight.
And come down once again.
Back to the owner of the kite.

Awww... So sweet! If only more husbands think like that, there'd be more love and harmony in the world. Best wishes to your plans and dreams.

I have some friends who have very recently invested in some land in Malaysia. I understand there is a growing trend of Sgporeans looking to grow their wealth this side of the causeway also with a view of making Malaysia their retirement home.

Nice poem... I have same thoughts like you to have wifey live like a Tai-Tai and play mahjong with all the bitches. But no, mine is too intelligent and studying to become a scientist after taking Master's next year. She earns more than me too! So I should stay at home, she said.

are you into poetry? coz the poem by the end of the post is amazing.

I totally agree. We can only have personal growth when we get to share our interests, passions and ideas with like-minded people. It need not be only business but others like blogging, running, spirituality and so on.

Btw, you're one COOOOOOL HUBBY!
