Life is full of both good and bad days. Unfortunately, it can sometimes feel like we experience more bad days than good! When that happens we can either come to terms with our misery, or attempt to stay optimistic and look for silver linings. Well, artist Michiyo Ho (何戀慈) confused many when she chose the latter.
The 28-year-old bewildered many when she uploaded a photo of her car after getting into an accident. However, instead of complaining or being annoyed, Michiyo was spotted smiling! As it turned out, she simply didn’t want to wallow in her misery.
On 21st November, Michiyo uploaded a selfie on her Instagram Story. While not uncommon, it was the caption which caught people’s eyes. “That’s right, I’m the one who’s (car) is being towed on the highway,” she shared. “Don’t worry, everyone.” Her IG Stories clarified things a little more. This time it showed a photo of Michiyo posing with her Toyota GT86 that had been badly wrecked.
However, Michiyo was still smiling in the photo and offering a thumbs up. “(My) birthday hasn’t arrived, (but) my birthday present (will) come first,” she said. “Don’t ask me why I’m so happy after (crashing my car). What else can I do?” She later added, “There’s nothing wrong with being optimistic.” Michiyo also reassured fans that no one had been injured in the accident.
Michiyo’s fans and friends were quick to leave messages wishing her well. Several expressed their relief at seeing her safe while others were sympathetic towards her accident. Some of her friends also cheekily pointed out that it was an excuse for Michiyo to get a new car. However, a few netizens mocked Michiyo for taking photos of her accident, implying it wasn’t a good habit.
Well, on the bright side, Michiyo was safe, despite her accident. Losing her car may definitely be frustrating, however, we’re glad she can still smile despite it. Hopefully she manages to either repair or replace her car soon!
