“Yes, my friend, we are a small proud Singaporean family…”
Side story :
Chatting with several Singaporean friends, some of them are (or going to be) married, but plan to not have children.
I couldn’t really understand why. When I ask, most of them answered “why should we have children?”
They proceed to ask me with the same question.
I want children. And when they ask me why, I don’t have a straight, universal answer. I just thought it’s natural, I love children. They bring happiness and maybe some fulfillment. I said “maybe” because I don’t know for sure. We are still trying.
I think all of us want a happy life. A happy, fulfilling life. It just that people define happy and success differently.
There is no right or wrong.
