Guess how much it takes to make me happy

It does not take a lot of money to make me happy.

To be precise, it takes only 20 cents.

Why only 20 cents?

Because that is the value of the coin I picked up on the street yesterday.

I was out for lunch and I happened to see the shiny little coin from afar.

The strange thing was that so many people walked past the coin, and nobody picked it up. I was still far away, and it took about 20 steps more before I could pick up the coin.

It really made my day. I was quite happy yesterday as it was a Friday. The little coin added to my happiness and I literally floated back to office in bliss.

It is strange to see that a month salary does not produce such happiness as the unexpected 20 cents!

It's the unexpected that does it! Maybe no one else wanted to be seen picking up such a small amount. I was looking through my desk today and came across a few Singaporean dollars left over from our trip four years ago.

Some people may not have seen it,some did not want anybody to see them picking it up and some did not want to pick it up.But I am glad it made you happy.

Yes, finding something unexpectedly that is worth money also make me happy.

Co 20 cents has no obligation to be given away while our salary has already been distributed even before we can get it hahahahah... that is why many people are not so excited about it because they can''t enjoy it... but I know it is not for long... God bless. it is nice to read from you again.

I will pick up a penny (one cent), if I see it on the ground. The other day, it was a dime (10 cents)! I understand the joy!

Unexpected stuff is better because it is unexpected! Good for you!

Coz you sacrificed nothing for it? I once picked up $10. I actually felt a little guilty!
