Gong Xi Fa Cai!!!

The Fire Rooster soars in as the Year of the Fire Monkey left us with a bang! Yes, roosters do not fly; some dub the Fire Rooster as the Phoenix – which can fly. :-p Just as the year ended, I was in Singapore for a business meeting. I have to say I am amazed by how much travelling I encountered in the last lunar […]

My 2016 Journey.

In about 31 days, we will say goodbye to 2016. On the 32nd day, we greet 2017 with great jubilation. I am amazed by how far I’ve come as a person since this time last year. There were ups and there were downs. I never expected to be where I am today; and I am grateful for all the opportunities that came my way. Recap […]

On a Two-Way Street…

Communications. Human behaviour. Emotions. Beliefs. These are facets of humankind which fascinates me. In almost 30 years, I’ve had the privilege of experiencing joy, anger, sadness, remorse, hate, love, and other feelings. However in 2008, my feelings betrayed me. The disastrous first relationship robbed me of what I could have. For years since August 31st, 2008, I’ve looked back and questioned myself: Am I good enough? Seeing […]

Revising Directions and Goals.

It’s August 2016. A lot has happened in the past 8 months, but at the same time nothing has. When it comes to goal reviews, I’m late by 2 months. Nonetheless it’s important to re-evaluate one’s direction. Taking the time to reflect on values and priorities set against the changes. Anyway, there’s a lot to re-examine. For this entry, let me just focus on one: […]

A Rough August 2016

This year we were struck a series of tragedies. Some time back, my grandmother fell and broke her leg. She’s been recovering well for an 80+ year old lady. Especially with the metal rods sticking out of her leg. This Saturday she is scheduled to remove those rods. Last week we were shocked once again when one of our uncles passed away at the age […]

Politics of Principles or Persecution?

1Malaysia Development Board (1MDB) is on every Malaysian’s lips since 2014. Allegations after allegations came out in the media – both mainstream and alternative. Politicians outside the Barisan Nasional (BN) have capitalised on the issue repeatedly: blogs, political talks, Sarawak State Elections 2016, Kuala Kangsar and Sungai Besar By-Elections 2016. Allegation is defined as “a statement of claimed fact contained in a complaint (a written […]

A Closure – Better Late then Never

Books do not judge. They ferry us to a world of possibilities away from prying eyes. Authors impart their wisdom and insights through a stroke of a pen. Ideas are planted in the fertile soils of the mind. The words interact with our imagination to create a realm hidden from prying eyes. Notebooks capture thoughts, ideas, hopes, and experience of the moment until the ink fades […]

PayPal Invoicing System

Last week I’ve reached a new milestone: I was able to integrate PayPal into my copywriting practice. Before this I have been handling the invoicing manually: Entering the information into Microsoft Words, and then converting it into PDF before attaching the file to an email to the client. Going paperless is easy. However without a system, you’ll easily lose track of invoices, payments, and receipts. […]

Taking Up a Cause – Let’s Fight the Stigma

I’ve been a little selfish over the years. My posts have predominantly been about politics, religion, spirituality, business, personal finance, travel, popular culture, and personal loss and growth. At the same time, it lacks a soul. A cause. Raising the awareness also begins with educating myself. When you want to master something, they say teach others what you learn. If I want to help fight […]

Social Data Analysis Weekly Presentation 01/2016

Can you believe it?! Two months have passed since I accepted my new role in Kuala Lumpur. One of the things I miss is the Weekly Presentations in BNI Signature Chapter. It’s the slot where we educate our members and visitors about what we do and the referrals that we are looking for in 60 seconds. Do watch this video, one I made this morning, for […]
