Be happy and stay happy.

“We tend to forget that happiness doesn't come as a result of getting something we don't have, but rather of recognizing and appreciating what we do have.”

Defining Happiness

Most of us are in pursue of happiness . . .

According to Daniel Kahneman, Nobel Prize winner, we have an experiencing self and a memory self.

From what I get, we define happiness based on our memory of the experience rather than the experience itself. This is something new to me and I find it really interesting.

Above is one of my happy moments in Malaysia, experiencing a cable-car ride in Genting Highlands. Well, a thrilling experience that set happy memories.
