Its Saturday afternoon...

... and here I am wifi-ing at Cube restaurant, City Mall. Pretty hot day outside as I enjoy the high speed internet access here. So much online work to catch up with. Mostly preparation work as I'll be busy promoting some events next week. Stay tuned on those.

Haven't been blogging for quite a number of days now. Been taking day offs since the 14th of February. Had an awesome Valentine followed by good times with friends and loved ones. This is one week I won't forget. More importantly because of the time spent with Hime. Some really interesting events will be coming up in my life soon. :-) 

a RED letter

10.30pm, 13th February 2010, Coffee Bean Damai

Dearest Hime,

In less than 2 hours, it will be Chinese New Year and Valentine's Day. Gong Hei Fatt Choi to you love. Seems like cny is a bit more happening than last year. I can even see beautiful fireworks outside through the glass window. Wish I can watch it with you. At this moment, I'm sure you're busy at work. I hope all goes well on your side tonight.

Hours earlier I had another swimming session with Hannah. Today I outdid myself and swam further than I did before. A few more weeks max, I think I can swim all the way to the other end of the pool. Yet, I still can't float... haha You were my inspiration today to be better at swimming. In fact, you are my inspiration in everything I do. Because of you, my life now has taken a direction that pushes to me rise above myself more than I ever did before.

The sun will rise tomorrow and I'll be seeing you then. While most people I know are busy with Chinese New Year, I'll be all about Valentine's Day. Last year I never really did celebrate. This year will be special. As I said, you inspire me to rise above myself. Tomorrow's Valentine's Day will be an experience that the previous ones are no where near to compare.

Let me share with you something...

"Because we do not know when we will die, we get to think of life as an inexhaustible well. And yet everything happens only a certain number of times, and a very small number really. How many more times will you remember a certain afternoon of your childhood? An afternoon that's so deeply a part of your being that you can't even conceive of your life without it. Perhaps four or five times more. Perhaps not even that. How many more times will you watch the full moon rise? Perhaps twenty. And yet it all seems limitless." - actor Brandon Lee reciting the quote from Paul Bowte's Sheltering Sky

Life is short. For what I know, I'll never get a second chance to be with someone like you anymore.

Happy Valentine's Day. It won't be one without your presence.

I love you.

Mixed Up Monday...

... or MUM is just one of those random Mondays that you get once in a while. In Kuala Lumpur now for work and interesting enough the images above pretty much sums up my day so far. Image 1 is about a business meeting I had that led into a nice half an hour conversation about deep sea fishing. Yes, go figure. Image 2... Something to do with Valentine. :-) Image 3 is pretty much where I'll be for the next few hours. Hows your Monday so far? I leave you people with this music video of Kings And Queens by one of my all time favorite bands 30 Seconds To Mars.

Into the night
Desperate and broken
The sound of a fight
Father has spoken

We were the kings and queens of promise
We were the victims of ourselves
Maybe the children of a lesser God
Between Heaven and Hell
Heaven and Hell

Into your eyes
Hopeless and taken
We stole our new lives
Through blood and pain
In defense of our dreams
In defense of our dreams

We were the Kings and Queens of promise
We were the victims of ourselves
Maybe the Children of a lesser God
Between Heaven and Hell
Heaven and Hell

The age of man is over
A darkness comes and all
These lessons that we learned here
Have only just begun

We were the Kings and Queens of promise
We were the victims of ourselves
Maybe the Children of a Lesser God
Between Heaven and Hell

We are the Kings
We are the Queens
We are the Kings
We are the Queens

Beautiful song. Wishing a good Monday night to all.

swimming with Hannah

I've been learning how to swim for 2 weeks now. Special thanks to Aaron, Beverly and Soh for accompanying and coaching me for the past few sessions. Currently I can swim quite a bit but still unable to float..

Recent session on Wednesday was a special one as it was with my daughter Hannah. I know it is gonna be fun and a challenge to my ego as well. You see, Hannah is a really good swimmer and she likes to show off to me her skills. Where my ego comes in is when she challenged me for a race. She beat me in the first race and made fun of me. I took it in a good a way as extra determination to better myself. But I guess it is tough when she beat me 5 times in a row. haha... Nevertheless, I had lots of fun with Hannah and I found out she is an amazingly good coach too. Taught me a bit about floating and paddling.

After the swimming session, Hannah and myself along with Beverly and Soh went to Hana Japanese restaurant at City Mall. Fun session there and everyone had a satisfying meal. Overall I'm very happy with my quality time spent with Hannah. Kinda embarrassing for me to have her beat and coach me in swimming. Better late than never. Beat her next time... Hmm...

p/s: I have to be good in swimming by March to win a bet. :-)

being in a newspaper article

This is the 2nd time I appeared in newspaper(yesterday's Sabah Times). Felt kinda weird.  Nevertheless, there is nothing wrong to be in one to promote the business I am in. Gonna appear in another media soon. Wondering how the reaction will be like.

photo shoots

After quite some time, here are slide shows of photos from shoots that I were involved with for the past few months. Finally I get to post them up. Many thanks to all who were involved with these shoots.

portrait photo shoot at Jofanna Bridal - As a so called birthday gift, my buddy and uprising wedding photographer George Yong decided to give me a free portrait photo shoot session. The session was held last month and I had lots of fun. You'll see some of these photos in some online projects I'm doing this month.

November 2009 photo shoot for Elysium - photos from a special photo shoot in conjunction with the launching of Elysium Club in KL last December. I was the coordinator for this shoot.
