On the Other Side

I have complained a lot on how extinct the gentlemen species are nowadays. That the pregnant me has to stand up on the bus while the man are chatting loudly while sitting or sleeping soundly just as soon as they see me coming.

I guess I can write about that tirelessly but what good it would cause me. Nothing. I will just feel depressed that the future generation will see that as ‘normal’. But I can still do something, it’s not too late to teach my daughter, her cousins and this baby inside me some GMRC and empathy and caring for other people. Yes, that’s not yet too late.

So every time I have to endure standing up in the middle of the bus, I thanked God for all the time I was able to sit. I learn how to appreciate the softness of the seat and that it’s good to sleep while leaning on something soft going to work. I learn to appreciate little things and learn not to complain.

Plus I will not be able to observe how fast our travel route is from South Express Way to Sky way when I sleep, so standing up means I can take some time to notice the surroundings and the beauty of the South. ^_^

Don’t hurry. Don’t Worry. And be sure to smell the flowers along the way!

That's the attitude! Always think positive! By the way, those are pretty flowers. Are those forget-me-nots?

You will enjoy the beauty of the surrounding if you ride in a non-aircon bus. I also like the flower that you post here, I don't know what it is.
