At mylot we are such a big family of nearly 1,84,000 members coming from various parts of the world. We are here sharing our views on different topics. We are concerned about each others various types of problems and trying to solve through discussions and responses. We are all responsible members of our individual families trying to better the standards of our immediate family through various means of earnings. In the midst of all these do you really enjoy life? If so how? Alone or with family? To be very frank, I do enjoy life with my family and friends. Every day after the office hours it is fun time at home. Sunday is the biggest festival day at home with friends coming for lunch. In the evenings all of us go out for either shopping or movies or just casual walks. Once in a while all of us go for sight seeing in our city. There are many places in the city worth visiting and all the places cannot be covered in a day. So we have to keep visiting one by one with guests if any. I have seen and heard people saying that they visited so many places in the world but I dare say they must have not completely visited their own city. So enjoy the beauties of your own city first and then your own country and then think of going to other countries. Everyone of us have problems of various types. Health problems,wealth problems,educational problems, relationship problems and so on and on. We all know life is very uncertain and short so why not enjoy our life with our family to the best of our abilities?

Dear meapas, I totally agree with your views. Weekend we should spend quality and happy time with our family. My family and I will go for movies and lunch or window shopping at a nearby mall. To add some special touch for the outing, we at times do crazy thing like 'movie-marathon' or 'eating-thon'.. Join some activities in the mall - Valentine, Mother's Day, Father's Day and some fun activities. I tried to balance out for vacations - in Malaysia we have three school four school holidays. March and August have 1 week school break each. I will take this opportunity to go back my hometown and my husband hometown too. I believe our parents will be please to see their children and grandchildren. We will take a day out there to go local attractions. IN the Month May to June, there will be 2 weeks school break which I will try to plan for a local holiday to Island/ Beach Holiday in Malaysia itself. If not, we will try to visit neighbouring countries like Thailand, Singapore or Indonesia. We still have not covered Langkawi Island and East Malaysia~ Sabah & Sarawak..(must start to plan now:) IN the month of November to December, the school will have a long holiday which is 6 weeks. This is the holiday season and Christmas decorations all over...we will plan for overseas trip to other continents like South Africa, Europe, Australia or the US. But with H1N1, I doubt we are planning any overseas vacation.. A picture of my family trip to Egypt, photo taken by my son. All the best, I truly hope to visit the Taj Mahal one day with family.

WOW! That is living life to the full. Enjoying life with whole family is something every one should go for. I am a big fan of such loving people who cares for every member of their family. I pray for such family and pray for other families too to get such loving persons in their family. There can't be a better news than this where you get to hear whole family enjoying life and there can't be a better sight than this where you can see a complete family enjoying life to the fullest. I just enjoy hearing and seeing this. If only every family in the world live life like this what a lovely place the world would have been. You would get to see a real heaven on this earth. What a dream? Is n't it?

Dear meapas, Thanks for your prompt reply, truly appreciate it. Yes, we should live, love and laugh...for this world is just a transit We must remember those love ones and care for the needy too. My eldest sister is the best role model in my family, she really cares for everyone...BUT some will take advantage of her. She knew about it, but she just don't bother. She always love to spend the whole family for lunch and it really cost a lot, but she truly enjoyed seeing the family members gather together and have fun eating...Chinese always love to eat... I too hope this world will be a better place for everyone. Thanks for your prayer, I will pray too that everyone will find happiness, love and hope :)

My time at mylot.com has always been fruitful. Thinking back of the many things and knowledge I have learned, it is probably the cheapest online education on life. Just like in mylot, I want to enjoy life. I want to create the lifestyle I desire. That's why I decided to be an entrepreneur.

Yes we have to thank God for all that He has given us. Without His help nothing would have happened for us. He is our inner strength to face any problems in life. Thanks for your response and keep enjoying every moment of your life.

Hello dear, I am glad to hear that you are enjoying your life. I totally agreed with you that life is short and uncertain, so why not enjoy our life to the fullest while we can. I should say that I am enjoying my life very much. I am happy and satisfied with my life cos I got my family and friends with me. I love to spend my times with them and I also love to spend time pursuing my own hobbies. To me, as long as my family are happy and healthy, then I am happy. Cheers =))

Totally, absolutely and 100% agree with you. God has bless us with a wonderful family, we should appreciate the time and bonding together. As we look back at the photo albums, we will definitely smile as we walk back the memory lane. We can't change what is past. So, appreciate and live life to the fullest.

I do agree with you. Also, life is a gift from God. Life is struggling. We should thank to God for everything given to us, strength and weakness.

Yes we should be thankful to God and our parents for giving us this life. We should also be thankful to all those people who taught us so many good things in life because of which we are aware of good and bad. So just enjoy every moment of your life with all its offerings.

Think of all those less fortunate ones. So enjoy as much as we can. Life is too precious to keep worrying all the time. Let us spread love and happiness where ever we are.

I have not been able to enjoy most of my life. I have tried to but it seems to be impossible. I try to make the most out of each day though and just hope it gets better with my thoughts and all.

Happiness can be found in simple things of life. Just look at your avatar. So innocent and beautiful creation of God. A simple and loving. Just by watching your pet can give you that moment of happiness. So let us be happy with what ever we have and let us spread happiness and love where ever we are.

Everybody also have their different ways to enjoy life. Somebody will choose to travel. Somebody will choose to go for music. Somebody will like hiking. There are endless list of enjoyment you can have in your life. It seems cheesy but I take a look at my life and realize how lucky I am to have what I have and I appreciate it. I appreciate every second with my boyfriend, I smother our daughter, I enjoy conversations with the people I find to be my real friends, etc. I think the key is appreciating your life.

Great way to spend time with the family there. For me, my life right now is pretty darn busy with schoolwork and stuff. I am close with my family and we just went out yesterday night. I do enjoy life, with my friends, family and myself =D. I do wish to start living like you do, once i gain a stable income though. Problems do come once in a while. Hurdles after hurdles, but we have to stay positive dont we? Cheers

Hello, Yea I sort of enjoy my life, I mean it could have been better with more money and enjoyment, but it is still good. Who knows, it even could have been much much worse, with no food or water like some other people who live in this world. Make sure you have a good day, God bless and Happy Lotting!!
