Things are easier said than done. I hear people keep saying that all the time, that you should be happy, you should be smiling, but I personally think, if you always must try to be happy then it will also become nothing but stress.

However, it's also getting more difficult because too many people are using it: Bragging right about anything and everything!
Merry Christmas! This magical Christmas, I decided that I wanted to become a world-wine woman and I was lucky to be invited by Aimee - Chairwoman of Business Women Saigon to attend a private talk and wine tasting. To make it even more memorable, we have recorded this event and make it the first episode on Beyoutiful Vietnam’s YouTube Channel.
We are three sisters who grew up in a loving family, although we don't often verbally express our feelings for each other. There's really not much to say, except, we've been living far apart from each other for 10 years. Our eldest sister Linh Giang lives in Hanoi - Vietnam's capital city at the moment. [...]
