Tell me someone who

faces no storm in his life

Who says life is easy?

Each year, Singapore experiences about 168

days of thunderstorms. They are often

accompanied by lightning, heavy rain and gusty

winds, and can affect any parts of Singapore at

any time.

So is each of us who is bound to face storms at

some time in our lifetime. But,

“IT’S NOT WHAT HAPPENS

TO YOU, BUT HOW

YOU REACT TO IT

THAT MATTERS”

WHEN EVERYTHING SEEMS

TO BE GOING AGAINST YOU

REMEMBER THAT THE AIRPLANE

TAKES OFF AGAINST THE WIND,

NOT WITH IT

Henry Ford

Head or Tail?

Pilots prefer to take off or land with headwinds,

winds that are blowing towards the aircraft.

Sounds like resistance? Not really, because a

headwind increases the lift of the aircraft when it

is taking off.

Faced with setbacks when chasing your dreams,

do you just give up or are you gritty enough to

pursue to the end? Grit is about perserverance. It

is about your ability to push through all obstacles

to reach your dream.


Singapore is a sunny island set in the sea.

But cloud cover influences the daily

sunshine hours it receives. During the

wettest months, the land receives about

five hours of sunshine per day and goes

up to about nine hours per day during the

drier periods.

When your days are clouded by

unfortunate events beyond your

control, just remember that bad

days will not last forever. Time

will heal any pain and the sun

will shine on you again.

NO

CLOUD IS SO

DARK THAT THE

SUN CAN’T SHINE

THROUGH


Don’t confuse your path with

your destination. Just because it’s

stormy doesn’t mean that you

aren’t heading for sunshine

Let’s

march on

in rain

or shine


Water is fluid, soft and

yielding. But water will

wear away rock, which

is rigid and cannot

yield.

As a rule, whatever is

fluid, soft and yielding

will overcome whatever

is rigid and hard.

What is soft is strong

- Lao Tzu


My son was born at 1655hr on

the 15 th of April 1996. A few

hours earlier, a seven year old

boy had died after being struck

by lightning.

Sad as we are when a loved one

passes on, we must face it that

life comes and go. Just as water

that has risen and form clouds,

there is nothing we can do

except to wait for blessings

HEAD UP, STAY STRONG, KEEP MOVING


Let’s learn from the many people

who choose to shine even after

all the storms they’ve been

through
