TELL US ABOUT YOURSELF IN 1 LINE.
I’m a determined and perseverant person. If there is something I want to do, I’ll put my mind to it and finish it all the way.
TELL US SOMETHING MOST PEOPLE MIGHT NOT KNOW ABOUT YOU.
I enjoy salsa dancing as it’s a big part of my life. It’s an outlet for me to relieve stress and playing piano is another avenue for me to destress. People may think that I’m an extrovert, but I do need my alone time to think and I believe I’m more of an introvert-extrovert.
WHAT’S THE BEST PIECE OF ADVICE YOU’VE EVER RECEIVED?
One good advice that I’ve applied to my life motto, is to use this four phrases everyday ‘I’m Sorry, I Forgive You, I Thank You and I Love You’ and it means a lot to me. Before I end my day, I will contemplate these four phrases and who I would need to say it to. In chineseChinese family, we tend to not verbalizse our love for each other. SomtimesSometimes we may even take our loved ones for granted. These four phrases allowsallow me to remain grounded since I will settle any existing problems on the spot and not leave them hanging, by seeking for forgiveness, by apologiszing when my actions hurt someone, by saying thanks generously and lastly saying I love you to the person I love.
TELL US ABOUT A TIME WHEN THIS PIECE OF ADVICE CAME IN USEFUL.
An episode I recalled that impacted me, was when a young lady came to our premises and who requested to open her grandmother’s casket to and see her grandmother for the last time. She asked for a private moment with her and I granted it. The door was left ajar and I was watching it from the CCTV outside. I saw her apologizsing profusely to her grandmother, with tears streaking down her face and that was when the moment hit me. It dawned on me that I didn’t want to be in the same plight to regret not having the chance to apologisze and make up with my loved ones. After that particular episode, whenever I argue with my mother, I never fought back as I don’t want to hold anymore regrets.
