Kueh Lapis Man

Smile and the whole world smiles with you!....

Well, that's the super optimist and almost sugary phrase from an old song of the 60s which I grew up with. For us who are now in the 21st century, purported more mature and worldly smart, this sentiment may no longer be of use. Or is it?

There is really no harm with smiling more often. Besides it works all the right muscles on your face that may give a better feel and a boost to that look-good factor. This can rub off on all those who meet you and put a smile on their face too. :-) See?...

It can also reminds us that we are do not have it all that bad in life, despite what life can throw at us. For every of our own problems, perceived or experienced, there are many others out there which are worst off borne upon by others. We need to count our blessings a little more (and we have lots!) rather than to curse our so-called lack.

As if to make a point for myself, I saw this kueh-lapis cake which came into my hands at a friend's Chinese New Year gathering several weeks ago without realising that it had a cheeky countenance by its side piece that seems to whisper, "Hey! Why the frown? Smile lah!" And it showed me how....

So, next time you feel you have suffered your worst, remember the kueh-lapis man! ;-)
