hygge
/ˈh(j)uːɡə,ˈhʊɡə/
 
noun
 
a quality of cosiness and comfortable conviviality that engenders a feeling of contentment or well-being (regarded as a defining characteristic of Danish culture).
 
basically, it means relaxation or cosiness, whether alone or with family, loved ones or group of good friends
 
all these can be associated with hygge - soft pillows, jazz or some soothing music, hot chocolate, sipping coffee, comfort food, fireplace, books, etc etc (no wonder Denmark always rank high in happiness :D)
 


 

in Singapore context, lying comfortably in the couch with a beer watching football at midnight can be considered hygge too? :D

There is no such thing as hygge in Singapore.

We cant afford such culture.

For some of us, the closest I think is stay at home and nuah. A state of extreme inertia.

Sure we have "hygge" here, we just need to stop a while and appreciate it.

 

Waking up early on Saturday morning to do my own thing, precious time to spend on myself, at a time when rest of family still snoozing away, no interrupting me [laugh]

 

Taking leave on weekdays to do my own thing, without informing anyone, so nobody interrupts me, and being a weekday, no crowds no queues no jams!

 

And long long ago, when there was still five-and-half day working week, coming to work on a Saturday morning was actually quite "hygge" feeling. Still young and single at that time, unburdened by family demands, enjoying after-work lunch with similar-age and status close colleagues and planning what to do with the remaining weekend.

 

I don't know how true it is for the Danes, but many of the things they associate with "hygge", i.e. cosy conviviality, enjoying time together with others, is being eroded by the ever-present smartphones. Everyone's staring and interacting with their smartphones nowadays most of the time.

I disagree smartphones make people more distant.

I now talk to people I know who have left the country everyday.

Smart phones bring people closer.
