I want an iPad!



It is the latest buzz right now. Finally officially announced by Apple, iPad(http://www.apple.com/ipad/) is a confirmed product that will be shipped for sale starting late March 2010. Think of a laptop size iPhone/iPod Touch. I do mean that literally! With a starting price at $499, this gem of a product is a VERY TEMPTING buy. Check out the video below to see the iPad in action.



A definite item in my 2010 wish list.

Why Women Win Fights



After watching Crying by Dane Cook as mentioned in the last post, I stumbled into another video of his stand up comedy. Once again, Dane Cook simply made my day. This one is called Why Women Win Fights. As much as I probably hate to admit it, it is true that women win most fights against men. Dane Cook couldn't explain it any better. Check this video out people.



Hope you all love the video. A good one for a stressed out Monday.

Do you cry?


So I was checking out this funny video about crying by actor/comedian Dane Cook. It occur to me that it is true people have these moments in their lives where they just suddenly breakdown and cry. Been there? I've been there. I have to agree with Dane Cook that it is a tough world out there and sometimes, just sometimes... there is so much burden or weight we can take that sooner or later, we're just gonna breakdown and cry.



Anyway, enjoy the video above as Dane Cook explains crying in a very funny way. Totally made my day. Have a good weekend people!

The Road To Success


The road to success is not straight.
There is a curve called Failure,
A loop called Confusion,
Speed bumps called Friends,
Red lights called Enemies,
Caution lights called Family,
You will have flats called Jobs,
But, if you have a spare called Determination,
An engine called Perseverance,
Insurance called Faith,
A driver called God,
You will make it to a place called Success.

that Marie Digby music video



I've said before and I'll say it again, I miss shooting and producing videos. It will be a while though when I get the chance again. I'm so tied up with many things and if I were to start this passion of mine again, I'm aiming to get this first...



Anyhow, it will be quite some time before I get my hands on that. Till then, I'll just look back at the old videos I produced.



One of them is the Marie Digby's Say It Again music video that I made while shooting her live performance in Kuala Lumpur two years ago. Got good comments across YouTube, Vimeo and Facebook for it till this day. Not awesome like the official but a good start for a total beginner. Those were the days.

Possible attacks in Sabah???


So i received news from sms and online postings last night that there will be possible attacks in Sabah? Heres the source from Reuters...

U.S. warns of possible attack in Malaysia's Sabah

KUALA LUMPUR
Fri Jan 15, 2010 7:54am EST

KUALA LUMPUR (Reuters) - Police stepped up security after the United States Embassy in Malaysia warned on Friday that criminal and terrorist groups were planning attacks against foreigners in the Borneo island state of Sabah.

A "warden notice" posted on the embassy's website (malaysia.usembassy.gov/), dated Friday, said resorts located in isolated areas of eastern Sabah, a state bordering the southern Philippines, were of "present concern."

It identified areas of eastern Sabah including Semporna and the islands of Mabul and Sipadan, as well as travel to and from the area.

The warning said there were indications criminal and terrorist groups "are planning or intend acts violence against foreigners," notwithstanding the Malaysian government's ability to detect and prevent such attacks.

"Please avoid or use extreme caution in connection with any travel in these areas or locations," it said.

The state's island resorts are popular with tourists.

The warden notice said the Philippines-based, al Qaeda-linked Abu Sayyaf militant group had kidnapped foreigners in eastern Sabah in the past. Criminal elements were also responsible for kidnapping and piracy, it said.

Malaysia's deputy police chief, Ismail Omar, said his officers were taking all necessary steps.

"I have alerted all my officers in Sabah to boost security at all these places," he told Reuters.

A U.S. embassy spokesman in Kuala Lumpur said such statements were issued periodically and the latest warning was posted "to enable people to make informed decisions about their security."

The spokesman said there was a possibility the warning would be upgraded into an official travel advisory that would be issued by the U.S. State Department.

The Abu Sayyaf, known for kidnapping and beheading hostages, was nearly eliminated after the death of its founder and leader, Abdurajak Abubakar Janjalani, in the late 1990s.

It sprang back to life when about 20 Malaysian and Western tourists were kidnapped on Sipadan island in 2000. Analysts have said that proceeds from kidnappings may revive the small but deadly group.

Doesn't sound good. Hope and prayers nothing bad happens.

Things to come...


Past 3 days have been quite tiring with a full scale of activities. But its all good as my life is all about making a better stand and still have a good time as well. Work has been a bit of a headache. Other than that I've been occupying myself with the following...

- Breeze Mag. I'll be working closely with this magazine. You might just see my photo next month in the magazine to get a better picture of what I've been working on.

- My own small business. Thats right. Just waiting for green light from main partners and I'm pretty much on my way to owning a small business that I'm very excited about.

- Photo shoot. Did a photo shoot at Jofanna Bridal recently. The photos will be used for an experiment I'm doing next month.

That is all I'm gonna say for now as presently is merely the period I just cross my fingers and pray everything I've been working on will be unveiled successfully.


p/s: Hope all is well with you peeps!

women are like apples, men are like wine



Got an email last week showcasing the following...

"Women are like apples on trees. The best ones are at the top of the tree. Most men don't want to reach for the good ones because they are afraid of falling and getting hurt. Instead, they sometimes take the apples from the ground that aren't as good, but easy. The apples at the top thinks something is wrong with them, when in reality, they're amazing. They just have to wait for the right man to come along, the one who is brave enough to climb all the way to the top of the tree.

Now men... men are like fine wine. They begin as grapes and it's up to women to stomp the shit out of them until they turn into something acceptable to have dinner with.

Share this with all the good apples you know.

Some of us heard the above before. So peeps, my question is what are your comments on this matter?

30 second Speech by Brian Dyson (CEO of Coca Cola)


"Imagine life as a game in which you are juggling some five balls in the air. You name them - Work, Family, Health, Friends and Spirit and you're keeping all of these in the Air.

You will soon understand that work is a rubber ball. If you drop it, it will bounce back.

But the other four Balls - Family, Health, Friends and Spirit - are made of glass. If you drop one of these; they will be irrevocably scuffed, marked, nicked, damaged or even shattered. They will never be the same. You must understand that and strive for it."

Music Monday


So I was never really blessed with music talent. Or shall I say, I haven't really been taking lessons to find out. Perhaps the only instrument I ever laid my hands on and was somewhat good at it was the recorder. That was way ages ago. Could have taken a piano lesson and did a little bit of guitar but none of them ever really took off. Hmm... I think I should make a point to learn an instrument this year. I wonder when... Probably just end up with an ukelele when I'm old like the picture above. And speaking of ukelele, here is a video to kick off everyone's first Monday of the year.



This boy rocks. :-)
