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

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

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

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

A spin on the time-space continuum

What does Seth Godin, Heru Ptah and Jason Fried have in common? Well, they are my inspiration for this entry. “If God created everything and is everywhere, then why is God in church and not in the brothel? And if God is in both, why do I have to go to church?” Twisted logic, some … Continue reading

Youtube killed the TV star

Just like how video killed the radio star, YouTube killed the TV star. No I am not saying that old media is dead, I’m simply making an observation, that the reign of TV is over. Do you remember how TV stations attempted to get viewers involved using games like Pac-Man and Space Invaders? Where viewers … Continue reading

Changing the game

So my mobile phone contract has expired and I have a dilemma.  I was using an iPhone 3GS, I want to upgrade to the latest iPhone but it will be a few months before Apple announces the latest iPhone. It wouldn’t make sense to just get the iPhone 4 so close to the release of … Continue reading

Interesting perspectives

Perception is reality. We often see things on the surface, things we perceive to be real, and it becomes our reality. When different people have different views, they conjure their own realities; and these realities clash. These different opinions make us who we are, these differences define the human race. I have a habit of … Continue reading
