  9. Devi Girsang Says:

    I actually hate my first kiss. It sucked cos he made my head bumped on the wall! However the second kiss (from the different guy, of course :P) was so much better! LOLz.

  10. Let me see… What qualifies…

    Seeing the innocent happiness of a baby?
    Cooking a great meal for all to enjoy?
    Lazing around?
    Trying new things?
    Sleep… Luxurious, rejuvinating sleep…

  11. Yan Says:

    The best things are nearest:
    breath in your nostrils,
    light in your eyes,
    flowers at your feet,
    duties at your hand,
    the path of God just before you.
    – Robert Louis Stevenson
