1. Heartwarming Moment

Gianmarco Tamberi from Italy & Mutaz Barshim of Qatar shared a heartwarming moment when the two athletes decided to share a gold medal at the men's high jump instead of settling the competition.

"It is amazing, man," Barshim said. "To share it with Marco is an amazing feeling. It is a great feeling. I’m really happy."

"It is unreal," Barshim said. "It is crazy I am so happy, man. It was the only thing missing. Now I am complete, I am so happy."

3. Wanderlust - places we love to travel

As one of the world's top destination,  Japan is high on our must-visit list. From the bustling city of Tokyo to the serene & scenic Mt. Fuji, Japan is a melting pot of the old & new, modern & traditional. Don't forget to visit the Tokyo Disneyland and the only Disneysea in the world!

4. Reading - our current reading list

Mel Robbins "Stop Saying You're Fine" explains how our own brain works against us. We say we are "fine", but are we really? This book shows how you could shrink the gap between the life you want and the life you lead, until it doesn't exist at all.  

One of our favourite quotes from her book is "it's not because things are difficult that we don't dare. It's because we don't dare that things are difficult - Seneca".
