Things that make me feel alive

There are times when I felt lifeless even when I am actually living. I am on this personal reflection to list down some of the things that could make me feel alive. Hopefully, I could do more of the things that make me feel alive.

(not in any order)

1) Rehearsing with the orchestra, and playing music that I can relate to.
2) Practising on the double bass and experiencing moments of "practising-highs".
3) Walking along scenic places and feeling in touch with one's self.
4) Sketching, with full concentration, something that I could connect with.
5) Actively listening to a person, and seeking to understand his/her perspectives of the world.
6) Analysing and integrating information.
7) Writing an article (e.g on that is of interest to me.
8) Sharing nuggets of information about Singapore or its heritage that makes Singapore an interesting place to learn about.
9) Reading something that is relevant to me at a point in time.
10) Learning something that captures my interest.

And so forth.

Eastcoastlife: Sure! About Peranakan culture, you may wish to visit the current Tao Nan School near Joo Chiat, then head off to the old Tao Nan School where the new Peranakan Museum (previously known as the Asian Civilisation Museum - Armenian St) is for its various Peranakan-related opening festival activities.
