Thought Series: 365 Thought Provoking Questions

I’ve decided to have these sort of posts as part of my Thought Series. I enjoy doing them as a self-reflection of some sort, and you guys seemed to like my last post on it! This time, I’ve taken the question from The Bucket List Journey’s 365 Thought Provoking Questions. Answered.

What is the most desirable trait another person can possess?

Happiness. I don’t know what it is but to see someone always smiling, always seeing the good in life, that’s what’ll really stand out. And I guess a lot of it has to do with the fact that I really aspire to possess joy in life, so that’s something I find desirable.

Do you think crying is a sign of weakness or strength?

I guess it depends on why you’re crying. But in most cases – or at least reasonable cases to be crying, I see it as a sign of strength. Society has definitely given us the idea that crying is a sign of weakness, and it’s “important”to put on a tough front – especially among men. But I see crying as a form of emotional release. It shows that you’ve acknowledged what you’re going through and that you’re capable of letting it out. It’s definitely a sign of strength.

If you could take a single photograph of your life, what would it look like?

It’d be a photograph of myself and all of my family. It wasn’t till about maybe a year ago that I began to realize the importance of family. I guess it’s part of maturing, but as you get older, you begin to realize that life does not stop and some of the people you once thought were so important, leave. But family will always remain as the only constant in life.

If someone could tell you the exact day and time you are going to die, would you want them to tell you?

Definitely not! Being the stresser I am, I’ll forget to live. As much as I would want to prepare my loved ones as I’ve seen how death can really affect the people around you, I’d like to live life rather than count the days down.

What is the nicest thing someone has ever done for you?

Pray for me. Different circumstances were causing a major change in my life and someone I didn’t really expect, reached out to me, spoke to me and prayed for me.

Before this trip, I never imagined for this city to be one of rich, artistic expression. Only to find out that Melbourne is one of the world’s best street art capitals. Canvassed all over the city’s laneways are creative yet, impermanent expressions of art. Each with its own story, each with its own place, Hosier Lane is known to be one of the more iconic laneways in Melbourne featuring some of the best street art the city has to offer.

Brunching In Melbourne

Giving you the perfect reason to sleep in and get up at noon, Melbourne prides itself on its brunches through its thriving cafe culture. Much of these cafes are tucked away in laneways but are bustling with people enjoying the perfect cup of a flat white over poached eggs and hollandaise sauce.

Queen Victoria Summer Night Market

Queen Victoria Summer night Market

Being the only Wednesday night during my stay in Melbourne, I headed to the Queen Victoria Summer Night Market on the day I arrived. The Night Market is held every summer and winter every Wednesday from 5pm to 10pm featuring mostly food stalls of cuisines from all over the world. From Argentinean BBQ to Korean fried chicken to Spanish paella and so much more…this was definitely a must-do for a foodie like me.
