Letter to You

Hola there. I finally managed to put this post up. All right, as you can see above... I'm currently employed in an audit firm, namely SJ Grant Thornton. I'm also being sponsored as an ICAEW trainee here as well. And yeah, auditing is fun. Honestly, it is. And, yeah... I have a message to all of you reading this post. Please refer below.




Dear Potential CEO,

School. A perfect place to train candidates of the most efficient employees. Then comes the million dollar question, where do these people work without employers? There is no specific subject being taught in any school around the globe on being a successful employer. Therefore, the subject that should be learned is financial education.

Financial education is a subject where someone should learn to make things work the opposite way. Employees work for money and employers don't. Employers make money work for them. This is a form of education which has outrageous demands which result in either an oblivious failure or a magnifi…

King of the Jungle

The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness and deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen. :)

The pic above is my workdesk. I'm currently employed by PPG as a purchaser. For those who didn't know, purchasers purchase on behalf of the company. In simpler terms, we do the shopping for the company's needs. It's the link between a company and it's suppliers. And the best part is, I work only from 8.00am - 4.30pm and have 3 breaks in between. ;p
Next up, tattoo; a permanent picture, design, or other marking made on the skin by pricking it and staining it with an indelible dye. It's a awesome process honestly. You get into the tattoo parlour. You either bring your own design or choose one of the thousands that have b…

Truth, Honesty & Lies

You want it all. Well, guess what? Everyone wants it all. Alright, you get it all. You sustain for a lil while. Then, you begin to lose your pride & dignity. And that's pretty much losing it all, ain't it?

I'm pretty disappointed with individuals who claim to have it all and convince others to follow in their paths to having it all too. Particularly, I'm referring to the highly famed "peak performance coach", Anthony Robbins. A one day seminar with 3000 other participants will cost you a stunning USD10,000. Well, there are also camps(like one week seminars) which are priced at around USD100,000 per participant. Overwhelming? Here's the catch. You'd be able to fire walk after the seminar. Spectacular yet possible. Read about it here. Strangely, the cool down period(time frame where you are entitled to revoke the contract and get a full refund) for his seminars are relatively low compared to other seminars. His books are spectacular reads and I'd…

Not Your Average Super Hero

Ever wondered how it felt like growing up to be a superhero? Well, I'll tell ya. First up, you will have to understand that "Heroes are born, whereas superheroes are made" :)
That's me during my training days. I used M16's for criminal hunting practice. Yeah, I kinda used guns coz' I haven't learnt CQC (Close Quarter Combat) or should I say, dirtying my hands for the kills. ;p
That was me about a few years back when I bagged my first melee kill.
I had my undercover missions too, when I had to get to parties and catch some of those nasty villains.
I never missed out on clubbin' moments too as a superhero.
And finally, that's me after I saved the world. Phew, it was a tiring day really. ;p Memorable, but still exhausting. Hope ya'll enjoyed the post. I gotta go off and get those evil dudes running around now. Cheerios. =)
P/s: Nuffnang, it's now up to ya.

Let's Agree To Disagree

That's LA2D, "Let's Agree To Disagree". It's a show which will soon air on TV2. And yeah, I'm one of the "artists" which will star in the show. Why I used the word "artist"? I don't really know either, it states "artist" on my appointment letter.




Well, during the shootings, I actually learnt quite a lot. Firstly, it would be that pink is actually not that bad. It's awesome really. I also learnt to listen to others opinions and also accept them when they're found worthy. I've managed to refute, dispute and disagree more effectively. Not forgetting, I've also learnt to agree to disagree. =)



We are face to face here with the sometimes confusing role of paradox in our lives. An example is the well-known advice to "be careful what you wish for". The longing and loves of our youth, so ardently pursued, often lead us toward some combination of amusement and regret in our later lives. Where is that girl we …

Support the Local Ones from Malaysia!

Hey there. I attended the Unity Concert, and I suppose a review about the night would be alright. Yeah, I do support local bands and Klang.
First up, a pre-concert snap. Thats me and my homies. They say "a picture means a thousand words". With this one, I could give ya' a million. For starters, hows "Americans, Canadians and OCP"? =)


Next up, the bouncers, Nash, Zebo, Bobo and Fitri(Old Putera Alpha 02'). Literally, they're people employed to expel disorderly persons from a public place. I perhaps learned a thing that night. A smile and empathy can really do miracles. In life, we tend to treat and get treated like objects at times. Try giving the phrase a thought. Sometimes, we get in I - It conversations. Suggestion : Have more I - You conversations, and you'll be amazed by how amazing people can really be. Everyone has a story, sometimes you just have to stop and listen... and you might learn a lot. =)
That's Balan from the KLG Sqwad. The nig…

Support Local Ones

I went to the BMW Sauber road show that was going on in KLCC. It was pretty much okay, however I really find it weird to have to purchase RM200 worth of merchandise for 3 laps on the F1 simulator. Haizzz, they make everything marketable I suppose. Here's the BMW Sauber's new ride. =)

Last season (2007), they finished 2nd place. Not bad huh? ;p And, both of the cars from the team finished in the top 10 today (2nd and 6th) in the Sepang F1 Circuit.
Since November 2005, both BRP-Rotax & Petronas have jointly designed the Rotax 4-TEC 1200, a high performance and high revving four stroke inline 3 engines for snowmobile and personal watercraft applications. Here's the Ski-Doo MXZ. Whoever said, we Malaysians' aren't prepared for snow sure is proven wrong. Personally, I find it really weird though for Petronas to be investing in snowmobile. =.="
This next one's called the Can Am Spider. This investment by Petronas is way much more understandable compared to the …

Turn Back The Clock

The Dawn Chorus
You're awake now
Devil-may-care you may seem
Lackadaisical you may be
Still it's venez m'aider that your acquiesce heart shrieks

Abashed with your body
You seek a mirror in clandestine
Trying your best to decipher your dreams
Finally, it's still gonna be deus ex machina for you

Unexpectedly, you remember the time you tried to jilt
You lied through your teeth about your feelings
The crux was a contingency to your lover
Causing unnecessary confutes which were contemptible in fact

The blitzkrieg was an obvious failure
Carte blanche wasn't what you truly desired
Because chastity was everything to you before
Or would you deplore it instead today

Maudlin isn't a form of cuss at all
Now all that's left is regret of the coup de grace dealt
Your ardour has always beaten your animus
It has and always will do it ad infinitum

Today you're gonna be a better person
Your adroit and affable self will help you
With alacrity you demolish your acrimony
Then realise your heart is …

Life Is A 4 Letter Word

Ahhh.... Life, the physical, mental, and spiritual experiences that constitute existence. Beautiful yet confusing. A good life is a main argument. And with a lil' research, I've compiled a few ways people define life in general:
Career - Studying your ass off, getting good grades, later a good job at a good company with a good paycheck, getting married, having kids and finally dying. Perhaps this is the most famous way of defining life. I find it really pretty "interesting". And the best part of this life, is that you're constantly in an unstable battle to reach financial stability. It's really a struggle most part, but I suppose that's the beauty of it. Life is difficult after all.Money - I suppose this one's really pretty popular in today's world. This one's really confusing though as there really is like two ways people look at it. Some will be like, money is everything in today's world, whereas others say money can't buy you everyth…

I sleep better with Chipster.

Hey everybody. Chipster is the new hottest thing. It literally burns =) And yeah, thats me in the picture. I'm kinda in my PJ's on my comfy bed. And yeah, I realized that it doesn't look like what most people would wear to sleep. It's like I'm heading for a battlefield instead of dreamland. Haha, well Chipster helps me get there. :D

Since I'm already talking about dreamland, I suppose I could help ya'll get better sleep every night with these tips. I have personally tried them all. It really works.
Eat Chipster as it's fiery hot taste will leave sleeping betterMaintain a sleeping schedule as it creates a mindsetDon't eat or drink heavily before sleepDo not nap during the dayAvoid nicotine, alcohol and caffeine in the eveningsExercise regularlyUse a comfortable bed and pillowTake six deep breathsFeel your achesAssure yourself you'll wake up on timeThink of a hammock You'll definitely have better sleep if you practice em'. Tell me if you ha…

Stop and stare.

Well, I was at Bar Celona last week. Was pretty awesome. Ex primary and one year high school mates asked me to come, and I went. People change and stay the same. =)
Spot me in the picture.
And yeah, Happy Chinese New Year to everyone! I know it might be a little too late, but still... it's better late than never. Alright, and Happy Valentine's Day too!
I guess there are people who don't really "celebrate" or enjoy Valentine's. I don't really get it really. Yeah, Valentine's can be any other day. I've heard remarks like, "What's so great about Valentine's?" and "It's just a normal day like any other day". Well, suggestion is... do not ever repeat those phrases again. It really makes you sound like saying, "I'll just spend Valentine's like every other boring day of my boring life". Maybe, its just me... But, it's ME if you get what I mean. Perhaps, singles might be saying... "But, I don't h…

Laa Laa.

Nothing says it better than the cake. HAPPY BIRTHDAY ROSHANN! A year better, stronger and not forgetting, older. To me, celebrating birthdays is not merely a convention. Birthdays are occasions to celebrate one's growth, maturity, and development. Birthdays remind us that the gift of life is the most precious and important one. Live daringly, boldly, fearlessly. Taste the relish to be found in competition - in having put forth the best within you.




For those who have noticed my inactivity in my blog and online-ness, its due to my recent employment with UMW Toyota Capital. I'm currently an Accounts Executive at the 20th Floor of IBM Plaza at the company mentioned. It's right beside One World Hotel which is right beside One Utama. So, every who hangs out at One Utama at around 1.00pm - 2.00pm, let me know and we could have lunch together. For those who are there even longer at perhaps after 5.30pm, let me know too. We could hang out and you could be getting a free ride home.…
