When I was
on the MTR riding to a family dinner Sunday night, I spotted this guy sitting
across from me holding a PSP while listening to his IPod.
At first, it seemed common enough sight because
I always see guys on the MTR with their head down focused on their game.
But then I noticed that his head was actually
bobbing left and right, and I realized this guy wasn’t playing any games but he
was dozing off.
Funny thing was, even
while asleep, I can see his thumbs subconsiously tapping on the keys from time
It’s hard to convey in words
how funny it was to see that, and too bad I couldn’t capture it on video because
it did bring a smile to my face.
seeing that got me thinking how such small moments of lightness from our
routine life can totally change a person’s mood.
people do try to intentionally spread these moments of lightness to routine
A group call “Improv
Everywhere” causes scenes of chaos and joy in public places. Created in August
of 2001 by Charlie Todd in NYC, Improv Everywhere has executed over 80 missions
involving thousands of undercover agents.
Here’s an example of what they do, just take a look at the smile on
these stranger’s faces.
May be we
need more of these in HK because it seems almost everyone here is jaded or have
a big chip on their shoulder.
We need to find a way to plan these Comedy Bombs to go off all around the city and
infest people with laughter and good mood?
Imagine that, having a mission to just make
random strangers on the street to laugh and causing good mood everywhere.
How great would that be?
Creating little moments of bliss for
doing stuff like this can make a big difference in society as long as people
are open and willing to participate.
like the voting process, it takes everyone’s involvement to make it count.
Even if the gesture or contribution seems
small, as long as people unite and all join up, the impact can be huge.
For this Saturday’s Earth hour @ 8:30pm,
Hong Kong will participate for the first time to turn off
the lights for one hour to recognize human’s effect on the Global climate.
If we all take part and live a lifestyle that
is green and resposible, we’ll all make a big impace.
If you don’t believe me, listen to what these
guys have to say:
