Ahhhh.. life in this valley can be pretty hectic. For example, a typical week can be something like this:
- Monday: LRT, work, breakfast, work, lunch, work, LRT, badminton, dinner till late
- Tuesday: LRT, work, drink milo, work, meet some friends for lunch, work, LRT, attend some funny event and got stuck in jam for 2 hours, supper
- Wednesday: LRT, work, drink latte, lunch with ex-colleagues, go to site office, LRT, play ping pong, supper/dinner
- Thursday: LRT, work, breakfast, work, tapao food from Isetan, work, drink coffee, LRT, early dinner, futsal 10-11pm, zzzz
- Friday: LRT, pretend to work, long lunch, work a bit, drink milo, LRT, dinner, yumcha with suan and gang, sleep at 1am
- Saturday: wake up late, trim grass, laundry, brunch, tv, dinner, party/event/lepak, watch football, sleep at 3am
- Sunday: wake up even later, bak kut teh for brunch, lazying around, write, email, nap, read, dinner, tv, and trying to sleep earlier
Eat, work, play, eat, work, play, it can be pretty hectic, with too much caffeine and isotonic drinks, not to mention the occasional drops of alcohol in between. Not particularly relaxing for the body and soul I’d say.
And then I was introduced to Lipton Hirameki.
Hirameki basically means “Get Inspired”. How does tea relate to getting inspired? Well, black tea leaves contains theanine, an amino acid that has been shown to have the effect of reducing stress and promote the feeling of relaxation. When you’re able to relax, the brain will be able to get properly rested, and generate more creative juice thereafter.
I think I should learn to sit back, have a cup of tea (and I like mine black, without sugar), and relax a bit. Bliss!
