Well, its the time of the year again. X'mas went past in a snap, 31st followin suit, and CNY will soon drop by. A season of festivals, and lesser work. Not a really great piece of news, especially after spendin bombs on presents and when the miserable pay is not sufficient to recoup. Worse if you have no basic salary like me..

But guess if i can't win them, i'll join them =P

Christmas Eve wasn't that bad. It wasn't way fun either. Just a little gathering with 4 'hard to meet up' pals playin mahjong and havin pizzas. After all, Calvin spent most of his time in aussie and we're all really glad to have him back once in awhile. Only drawback was me winnin only 50 cents. 50 CENTS! What a waste of effort, but it definitely beats losin ahahah!

Went home before the countdown, got stuck in the rain so i spent my evenin at SunPlaza instead. Other than gettin stared at for killin time in the arcade, its also surprisingly crowded for such a place when 12MN was drawin near. Apparently some couples actually prefer shootin their 25th Dec away? Contradictin for me, since i was out to avoid all crowds..

Was busy clearin smses from my dear pals after gettin home, while watchin some new movies i grabbed from Bryan. Before i knew it, the countdown was over. A few noisy calls with loud background, 'HOHOHO-in' and 'MERRY X'MAS' away, thats how Christmas fell in place..

Nothin spectacular, but i'm pleased its yet another year end. Did some decent soul searchin, am glad with the past events throughout the year. Accomplished 50% of my plans for 2008, nothin regrettable, i had a good time. Extremely contented to have met Ray, Jeff, and a few other pals i've missed out over the years. Fate has a way of playin its hands =]

2009 will be full of tides,
Things are gonna be rough,
Time to prepare my resolutions for the next 365days.

May all you beloved souls and your love ones had a memorable 2008. Times are harsh, with the global economy fallin like a slide. But that only illustrates the added need for us to brace ourselves and be resilient against the crunch. Let us all surf more bravely and united against the waves, and pave way for a better, wonderful 2009..

Merry Christmas, and a Happy New Year.

19th December 2008.

This is the date my cute little niece arrive to the world.
Her presence today has already brought so much smiles to each of us.
I believe she will grow up to be a wonderful lady thats gonna make a difference.

Beloved biao jie and biao jie fu, congrats!

How many of you read self-enrichment books? I have seen friends and strangers alike indulgin themselves with such collection of stories from successful people highlightin their career highs and lows. It is truly intriguing to learn how they manage themselves in different scenarios and what habits they practised. Personally i have scanned through quite a few along the years. Bill Gates, Robert Kiyosaki (if he counts), Farrah Gray (latest addition), and my most respected MM Lee KY. You name them.

But i realised most people have a big misunderstandin between self-enrichment and self-cultivation.

I remember my legendary basketball idol once said:
"I have missed more than nine thousand shots in my career. I have lost almost three hundred games. On twenty-six occasions, I have been entrusted to take the game-winnin shots, and i missed. I have failed over and over and over again in my life. And thats precisely why, i succeed."

A true inspirin speech from Michael Jordan, but not the main essence i wanted to underline.

How many of you enjoys watchin and learnin someone else's shots? You take great pain analysin every angle, goin in awe whenever they throw a basket. But the funny part is, why aren't you practisin?

There is yet another sayin from the famous Bruce Lee:
"Knowin is not enough, you need to apply it. Willin is not enough, you need to do it."

So i prompt to all who enjoys self-enrichment.
Don't just read, put the wise words to good use.
Practisin is the key.

Believe me, self-cultivation is the route i've been walkin. I have yet master every single aspect nor apply all the knowledge thats kept in my brain nor am successful enough to be convincin. But the fact i have achieved some minor results that not all could, have shown myself of the improvements i had made. I will continue to explore the very gist that shall contribute to a change in my life.

Ahaha, enough of dreary talks!

Was watchin 星光大道. I had a favorite for each season i saw. S1 was 林侑嘉, s2 was 赖铭伟. After watchin s3 today, undoubtly the person who caught my heart is 徐佳萤!

Not only is she sweeet lookin and talented in song writin, her personality really caught me off the hook. Her funny dance moves gave me a fun time too. And i find it really sweeet watchin the below clip..

They had composed a duet together earlier in the competition, perhaps that was when 李伯恩 fell in love with her. Well, if i was him, i'll fall in love too i guess. Ahaha!

X'mas drawin nearer!
But i'm well prepared!
At least the gifts are =P

Our Deepest Fear

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.
It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us.
We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?
Actually, who are you not to be?

You are a child of God.
Your playin small does not serve the world.
There is nothin enlightened about shrinkin so that other people won't feel insecure around you.
We are all meant to shine, as children do.
We were born to manifest the glory of God that is within us.
It is not just in some of us; it is in everyone.
And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.
As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.

Written by Marianne Williamson back in 1992.

I'm no devoted follower of God,
But those words are true.
Who are we not to be?

It was over the papers for days.

Today, i finally set eyes on the original video itself. Its leadin cast, Mr Craig Ewert, has brought much commotion in his homeland. Its content documented the travel of the Motor Neurone disease sufferer from Britian to Switzerland, and moments of him and his lovin wife..

Before he completes his life journey via assisted suicide.

"If i go through with it and i die, which i must at some point. If i don't go through with it, my choice is essentially to suffer, and to inflict sufferin on my family, and then die.."

It really breaks my heart seein the old couple confessin their love for one last time.

You can spend your whole life building,
Something from nothing.
One storm can come and blow it all away,
Build it anyway.

You can chase a dream,
That seems so out of reach.
And you know it might not ever come your way,
Dream it anyway.

Nice song isn't it?

Mr R got my head spinnin really hard today. Brought me 2 scenarios, and i took the whole car trip to come up with decisions. But we ended up havin totally opposite solutions, which made me seriously doubt if mine is the best way..

Lets seee what kind of answers you peeps will harbour?

Scenario A
A friend recently confessed to you. This person has almost all the quality you look for in a perfect partner. You are currently single, and you know the future will be really blissful should you two get together. But this friend of yours, is actually attached, but is tired of the current partner..

What will you do?

Scenario B
You have been attached with your partner for years. Your partner still loves you deeply, but you are gradually feelin the pinch. No longer were you in love, merely spendin each passin day out of responsibility. One day, this friend you have been on close terms with, confessed. This person is someone you will want to be with if you are single..

What will you do again?

On second thought, i am absolutely ashamed of my own answers right now. Mr R showed me calibre of what a gentleman should really possess. Though traditional, it was those conservative thinkin period that true love ever exist. These days youngsters ditch each other too easily. For fun, for fame, for money..

I have clearly seen how selfish i really was in love.
Only considerate towards my own future.
Feelin the guilt..

Ought to change.

Well, its time for magic shows again!
Cyril is truly amazin!

This is a must watch!

He's changin everythin again..

Cyril on ice!

I think this is his trademark move..

One day i gonna learn all these neat tricks.
One day =P

I have been so busy!

Pardon my lack of updates (if you are a frequent reader), time hasn't been merciful on me of late. Other than slackin workin on my job in the day, i have been busy with cousys and pals. For those who have been wonderin bout my job scope these days, it's really simple..


Yet it is rather different from most sales positions, for i command no basic pay. So how do i earn? Commission is not exactly the correct term in this case, i prefer the word Profit Sharin..

For example, i approached Company A.

Obviously Miraculously, they do require products we are offerin. In this case, they are interested in Product X, which Supplier B sells us at S$0.30 per piece. What i will do is, mark up the price to S$0.40 per piece, and sells back to Company A!

The usual quantity is at least a few thousand pieces per transaction,
So do the maths yourself?
Nevertheless, this is just an example.

Sad to say, i am not earnin much yet. Due to my laziness inexperiences, my 1st step is rather slow and unsteady. However, every new faces i get to meet will definitely boost my expenses confidence, and i will pick up the trade without a choice eventually..

Enough of career talk, lets proceed to magic shows! Gosh, i've been so hooked to cyril these days xD

Cyril changed clothes in split seconds -.-"

HE CHANGED HIS FOOD!! (the lady is sweeet *shy*)

Even at golfin..

Will post the rest up another day.

Xmas is comin soon, don't forget the presents guys? Most importantly, have a really great December!! (i'm lovin this month already)
