Happiness is (not) my cup of tea

Happiness is (not) my cup of tea

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. Having said that, I thought I’ve learnt to enjoy all the little things in life. In fact, I believe you will need some constant practice and certain effort into maintaining your state of happiness.

London Fog Tea

I am back in Hanoi to unite with my family for Tet holiday after almost a year of separation due to Covid-19. Foggy and rainy is the typical weather in Hanoi in this season. With a shade of grey covering the entire city, it takes a strong mind and a deep soul to recognize this taciturn beauty. Every time when it rains and gets cold like this, I am imagining myself drinking a warm cup of London Fog Tea while looking out the window. Although I have never been to London but I think for those who have been through the rainy weather of Hanoi in winter, you wouldn’t miss London so much.

I was told to be quite easy-going when it comes to my ability to drink. I don't get addicted to any type of beverages but rather to have a sip or two when I am happy. I like to make coffee and enjoy a great cup of coffee, but if I get to choose then a cup of tea, perhaps, any kind would be my drink of choice. I like the idea of drinking a cup of tea that makes me feel more calm and relaxed.
