Ini Kali kah?

I woke up this morning to the loss of the opposition party in the GE 2013 of Malaysia. I was sad, I was disheartened, and I was disappointed. I was so sure, so hopeful, that a change would come, but it didn’t. So I started thinking: Was I conceited? Is there really no hope? Were … Continue reading

The Great Divide.

Humans are amazing creatures. We shun the unknown, alienate the different, hate the unfamiliar. We bully the new kid in school, toss the nerd in the dumpster, shy away from the weird, quirky loner. We oppose gay marriages, killed millions of Jews, started holy wars, burned witches, and sent planes flying into buildings. We compartmentalize, … Continue reading

Runners, writers and fighters.

I stopped writing. And I don’t even know why. I thought I knew why I started writing, because I was so sure I had something valuable to share with the world, because I had been so inspired that I too thought that perhaps, maybe, I could inspire others in return. But somewhere along the line, … Continue reading

My Business Partner’s Excuse

So I’ve been working on an business idea for a few months now with my long time friend, famous food blogger Ms. I Hua. I would like to start by saying that we are in the early stages of planning, and we are progressing slower than I would’ve liked us to. Growing impatient, I drafted … Continue reading

The Root of Root-Raters

There seems to be a spike in the number of “Root-Rater” sites lately and I have been reading a lot of news articles covering the bans and take downs of these sites across the web. A Root-Rater is a site where users post ratings of their sex partners. Most of these sites are created using … Continue reading

Who knows you?

In the spirit of challenging conventional wisdom, I have decided to take on yet another quote – “It’s not what you know, but who you know.” And most would agree, without a shadow of a doubt. Whether you are looking for a job, trying to sell a product, get new customers, build a business, you’ll … Continue reading

Success – Cause, Effect, and everything in between.

I’ve been having conversations with myself about success – what it takes to be successful, the measurement of success and everything that comes with it. In short, what is the cause and effect of success? How do you define success? Is it money? Assets? Power? Building a successful business? Changing the world? Saving lives? And … Continue reading

10 things I hate about you

This entry is about ideas. “Ideas are funny little things, they won’t work unless you do.” Those were words of wisdom printed on a desk calendar that I used to have back when I was a kid, a quote long forgotten until I started writing this post. Ideas are good, good are ideas are better, … Continue reading

A world of words

Words. They say actions speak louder than words, they say talk is cheap, and they will tell you to put your mouth where the money is. So I shall. Why do people think words are meaningless? Is it really easier said than done? Not always, and I believe it’s time someone stood up for words … Continue reading

Give back, now.

What does your frame of reference tell you about your financial situation? You don’t make enough? You don’t earn as much as your colleague, Warren Buffett, Richard Branson? You don’t have enough money? And what do you tell yourself when it comes to giving back to the community, to helping those in need? I know … Continue reading
