Like Father Like Son..

I just returned from a flying visit to Tokyo for work.  Such an amazing city and still one of my all time favourite places in the world.

I took a day flight home which was a little indulgent for a work day... I think being on a plane is one of those few times in this day and age when you can truly 'disconnect' from the world (although I know some airlines are now offering wi-fi).  I spent a lovely 7 hours on my own watching movies, eating, reading and sleeping.  It's been ages since I have done that!

I flew with ANA so they had a great selection of Japanese films and one caught my eye.  It's called "Like Father Like Son" and I loved it.  I cried.  The film picked up the Jury Prize in 2013 at Cannes and is a story about two families whose sons were switched at birth.  The film so beautifully deals with themes such as nature vs nurture and family dynamics.  As a parent, I think it definitely affected me more than it would've if I had watched it pre-baby.  Regardless of whether you are a parent or not though, I recommend you find it and watch it!

dealing with toxic people...

This blog is my little outlet, a fun happy creative place for me.  I have always tried to keep the blog positive and keep the negative out of it, but unfortunately I am already struggling to meet my new year goals which I only listed down days ago.

My goal to try and not stress out about things I can't fix is not going too well.  Sometimes you encounter some toxic  / negative people in your life and currently I am struggling a little on how to best deal with it.

I went to my trusty Google and typed "how to deal with toxic people" and I found this helpful post.  I hope it helps you too when you are dealing with some difficult people.   I have extracted below what I found helpful, which will hopefully get me back on track!
Avoid toxic people. In some cases it may not be an option (ie work!), but more often than not, it is. It is also common to believe you can get a toxic person to change while interacting with them. You will not get them to change and trying it simply is…

Unfortunately Singapore has a bit of a lacklustre reputation for being boring, sterile, uncultured... especially in comparison to other Asian developed cities like Hong Kong + Tokyo.  Yes it is true that the vibe here is different to those other cities, but I think Singapore is definitely coming into its own and a lot has changed (even in the 3 years I have lived here).
