Although I was born in a big busy city, I decided long ago that I no longer wanted to live a city life. For many people, city life become stressful and, more often than not, you suffers bad health. My family and I has now left the city and lives in a quiet place where the birds wakes me up in the morning with their beautiful chirping. The sun shine everyday, the sky is a brilliant blue, the sea are warm and the food taste lovely.

 

I appreciate my change of mind probably happened as I got older and some of you younger ones is thinking, I would love to live in a city. I meet many students here who say that to me.

All I will say is this, makes the most of what you have and see where life's path take you.
