Brunch, beach and cocktails.

I don’t know when I will fall out of love from this exhilarating sensation of racing against time, packing up, sleepless nights and of torn green backpack. The whole idea of travelling is sometimes deemed as a total disconnection from well, “the rest”. Am I happy working hard, earning, and then spending on moving around? Yes. Leaves me breathless whenever I’m back in the office, grasping for some reality check. That sensation, right at that moment when I’m setting up my workstation after an intense holiday – right that moment, is an unidentified dot that connects me back to that life. I feel like a bullet train, stopped with signs, but of course wrecked regardless eventually after a bit of travelling. And truth is, I see the cracks, I feel it, and loved the experience that it gave me. Like how love and other drugs give you the greatest strangest sensation, traveling is an utmost exciting drug that I can’t seem to find a placebo of. Not through reading, not through watching. It has to …

I will be in Laneway Festival, Singapore this weekend!

Which one are you?

Life has all kinds of people. The safe, the brave, the mediocre.
I'd like to think I fall under the mediocre. Pathetic isn't it, succumbing to life's gravity. It's like, I already know I can't push myself so much. Truth is, sometimes I fittingly don't want to.
Within these few weeks, I've heard people leaving their comfort zone for something, uncertain. You know just to be able to solely trust in your guts, and in however you think life should treat you. Rather than, living in a self fulfilling prophecy. To make yourself believe that this is what you want, and this what you should be thankful for. Not to say it's wrong, but your quality of life is way less than some who are strong. I must keep this in mind.
I salute you bravehearts. A person is most remembered, in quantity and in quality when they bring value to other people's lives. Truth be told I'm a mediocre, but I hope to push myself beyond.
So dreamers, about time we stop crafting our dreams a…

DiGi Done Right Camp 2011

Last year, I attended a string of Nuffnang events. All kinds of it, the glitzy, the sweaty, the outdoorsy. Online communities though may look the coolest, at times we find it the hardest to mingle around. We’re either so hooked on our mobile phones, we don’t really know other bloggers’ online identities, or well, admittedly we’re just plain socially inept. As cliche as this may sound, I have always felt a sense of incompletion when I attend these events. I love meeting new people. I am not ‘friendly FRIENDLY’ per se, but I really appreciate good conversations, some old school coffee talk with people from all walks of life would be the best.DiGi Done Right Camp gave me just that. I get to actually talk to all these bloggers and let them, even so encouragingly ask me questions about how’s working in Nuffnang, how does it feel like to talk and mingle with the bloggers; does it feel like a job to talk to them, or do we see them as part of family. Though I’ve only been around for a year pl…

DiGi Done Right Camp 2011

As a Nuffie (term of endearment for 'staff' that's working in Nuffnang),
This is probably the closest, happiest I've ever gotten to/with bloggers in an event. Feel free to scream my name from far, pat on my back when you see me next or seat me down for a chat/ teh tarik.

2010 the year that was

This my dear friends is what you call an obligatory year end post. Something that you have absolutely no time to squeeze into your to do list, but kind of necessary because well, it’s kind of prepostorous not to recap whatever happened to your life in a year. That would mean, to summarize as a whole of whatever happened to you in about, 365 days of your life last year. Not quite impossible. I started the year with skepticism. To leave home, to leave mum, to leave familiarity. See I’ve always loved travelling, and ever since I decided to study in KL about 5 years ago, I’ve learned amazing things that only I would have known. People poke fun of people with wisdom to learn it all sometimes, and people complain about the smallest issues at times, worst, people poke fun at people who are I guess, wants to live an uncertain life. Those who love living towards extremity. They find them too stupid sometimes. Though I have always been a firm believer of modesty, there are times where my extrem…

One of the reasons why I hate technologies at times.

Not exactly per se, but the gist of it;
#1 I had this guy leave me a voice mail at work so I called him at home and then he e-mailed me to my Blackberry and so I texted to his cell and then he e-mailed me to my home account and the whole thing just got out of control. And I miss the days when you had one phone number and one answering machine and that one answering machine has one cassette tape and that one cassette tape either had a message from a guy or it didn't. And now you just have to go around checking all these different portals just to get rejected by seven different technologies. It's exhausting. (He's Just Not That into You, 2009)

Thank you 2010

During previous years, when I was celebrating to usher the new year, I had the greatest feelings that life has this stretch of endless possibilities, so many things to look forward to, so many things to try the waters to. This year's however felt different. Maybe cause it hasn't kicked into my system yet - but this year's welcoming felt like, a familiar book.
A feeling that tells me that there would be some-sort of accordance in it's storyline. Is this a good thing?
No. not to me.
Of course life shakes and stirs us up with the strangest of surprises along the way, but I guess what I meant is that it felt like besides minor decisions, life will somehow end about the same way it ended last year's. Every year I am thankful of what the year has given me. Small decisions, big decisions, are all accumulative of all what that had happened in life.
So this year, I want to live a-bit towards extremity. I don't know in what sense, neither do I know how it will result in …
