Happy In Twenty

Sometimes it's the smallest thing that can lift your spirits up, it can also be the big gestures that can raise your endorphin levels. Whether big or small, it is so important to acknowledge and hold on to the things that make you happy. 

1. "Good Morning" and "Goodbye" kisses from R. 
2. A tidy bed - there's nothing like coming up to a tidy, well organised bed. 
3. Fresh brewed tea (english breakfast or green tea!) in the office or at home. 
4. Watching re-runs of Friends and laughing at the same scene even though I've seen it gazillion times. 
5. Home date nights which consists of home cooked dinner, a good film  and a shared tub of B&J.

6. Weekend sunny walks by the canal - grabbing a coffee at the local cafe. 
7. Listening to 90's pop music - pref Backstreet Boys, because I frigging love them! #fangirl
8. Making sneaky online purchase and telling myself "I really deserve it, because I work so hard!" 
9. Receiving messages from my sister telling me another clever (usually cheeky) thing my neice has said/done. 
10. Leaving little messages around the house for my fiancé to see when he comes back from work

11. The smell of fresh lilies when fully blossomed
12. Looking back at holiday snaps with R and laughing at the most random moments during the holiday.
13. Spending time with my mum and watching her doing her thang' in the kitchen - she seriously makes the best Pho.
14. Girly dates with my sisters - a good catch up over good food.
15. Listening to old Cantonese music with my dad - he is to be blame for my old school cantonese music knowledge.

16. A home cooked roast dinner! I love a good old Sunday Roast with all the trimmings.
17. Buying new shoes/bags/makeup!
18. Watching the film 'Chef' - it is such a feel good movie with lots of delicious shots of food and BACON!
19. Receiving "I love you" texts from R
20. Discovering new cafes and restaurant in and around London.

What makes you happy?
