From times to times I always comes back to my blog and post something, erm yeah you know.. Once in a while stopped by blog LoL?.. Today I am sitting in a coffee shop with my ipad while waiting times to past by till I pick up my daughter from school, checking email and deleting unread emails, this subscribed email from Jasmine Star who has always been my spirit mentor both in life and photography career draw my attention.. So I decide to share it here..
The 21st century definition of success isn’t concrete, but often times people are considered successful if they drive a luxury car, live in a multi-million dollar home, have a lot of social media followers, and/or travel the world. Whether you agree with this, it’s important to know what makes people successful in your eyes.
And then you need to check yourself.
Let me be honest: it’s very easy to get caught up with notions of success, but they belong to someone else entirely. As entrepreneurs we’re tempted to look at others and long for what they have simply because we don’t have it…but do we even want it That’s the most important question.
How you define your success will guide and direct your future decisions, so please be verycareful as you move forward.
Not having hundreds of thousands of followers is okay.
Working as a part-time business owner is okay.
Not running a large company is okay.
Not having hundreds of employees is okay.
Not making a million dollars a year is okay.
I doubt the above paragraph is grammatically correct, but I tried to show that what others consider success might be the last thing you want. It is okay (and totally suggested) for you to make your own rules, play your own game, and succeed on your terms.
For all intents and purposes, I’m a success. I can say this with confidence because I defined my own terms. And I want you to do the same.
Someone might look at my idea of success and scoff, but guess what? I don’t care.
For me, owning a yacht, driving a Bentley, and/or having a butler open the front door to a mansion isn’t success. They are simply outward manifestations of having money.
And while I wouldn’t mind having these things (especially a butler like Jeffrey from Fresh Prince of Bel Air), they wouldn’t define success. Why? Because if getting the yacht meant working so much I couldn’t write every day or make my family a meal to eat together, then I’d be left empty and unfulfilled.
Having things isn’t success; living the life of your dreams by on your terms is.
Have a Good Days everyones !!

In the middle of night, once again I am staying up late.. Web surfing, Replying email.. Of course this somehow has always seems familiar for me, when I was still, at least a part time photographer, back in around 7 years ago.. Do I miss taking photos? Yes I do.. Do I miss working as a wedding photographer? I definitely do.. But life and times somewhile doesnt really allowed us to live life, just that way.. Doing things we love, living lifestyle we were fond of.. Because, it will never be LIFE.. I live life, thats why most of the time I had to do things I ought to do, instead of things that I would love to do.. And working as a photographer in a way, doesnt really fit in my life, or should I say, the timing is wrong? Nevertheless, I am still looking for one day from now I will still be able to hold my camera, doing things I love..

"Officially Missing You"
All I hear is raindrops
Falling on the rooftop
Oh baby tell me why’d you have to go
Cause this pain I feel
It wont go away
And today I’m officially missing you
I thought that from this heartache
I could escape
But I fronted long enough to know
There ain’t no way
I’m officially missing you
Oh can’t nobody do it like you
Said every little thing you do
Hey baby say it stays on my mind
And I, I’m officially
All I do is lay around
Two ears full of tears
From looking at your face on the wall
Just a week ago you were my baby
Now I don’t even know you at all
I don’t know you at all
Well I wish that you would call me right now
So that I could get through to you somehow
But I guess it’s safe to say baby safe to say
That I’m officially missing you
Well I thought I could just get over you baby
But I see that’s something I just can’t do
From the way you would hold me
To the sweet things you told me
I just can’t find a way
To let go of you
You know that I’m missing you
All I hear is raindrops
And I’m officially missing you

Had been quite free lately due to low season of tourism but i guess i would be busy with works again soon starting from end of this month till Dec, hopefully..? Anyway this post is just to try out my new template which i updated few days ago. The past month started from mid of September till end of this year is actually wedding's peak season, but pity me eh i had only shot 2 weddings so far LOL! Now i truly shout out loud that my camera gear is seriously under utilised! Will upload some of those highlights here as soon as i'm done with the processing together with some past weddings i shot which i didnt upload here. Oh yeah talking about camera gear, OMG Canon launched 1D Mark IV just 3 days ago! Click HERE to see some sample pics, the performance is making me drool and wanted this babe so bad! But only in my dreams lah...(for now..)

Yesterday after a tiring working day i went out for a slight dinner with Keira instead of cooking at home.. We decided to go to a kopitiam at Hilltop so that we wont have to go too far from home.. Just short after we sat down and had our order i was shocked because this poster was just in front of our table and i actually couldnt recognized it at 1st haha.. A couple of months ago Sungku came asked for my help to shoot this photo because he said the client wanted to print it on brochure for advertise purpose.. So since then i never expect to see this photo again after i submitted the finalized work to his office, in poster size somemore! Yeah it might only be a simple limau kasturi but it was quite surprised haha.. Just like back in years ago my photos of G-cut academy 1st competition was published and sticked on poster everywhere.. Cheers everyone, have a nice weekdays ahead!

I will just drop by some slight post here as i have little time to online while waiting to transfer my tourists to a dinner. Last week after few days of exhausted non stop working day, not enough sleep and the hardcore weather plus my insufficient water supply for my body, i finally fell sick, as i'm typing this from this wifi spot i still feel some sore in my throat.. I started up with fever, flu and sore throat.. which made me thought that with my job which requires me to get in touches with hundreds of foreigner tourists everydays, i thought that i might influenced with H1N1, which almost like end of the world for me cause if i really do, that i have to be quarantine for a week or so before they could prove that whether i'm infected. The 2nd day of my sick day was very hard cause i was worrying till die as my fever was getting worse, yet i still had to work.. I went to the scan booth of H1N1 the same night at Q.E.H to make sure that i wasnt influenced, the waiting moment was very hard as it was killing me in my mind! So straight to the result that luckily i wasnt influenced, i was just too tired for work that my body couldnt take it anymore thats why it shows some red lights! So here is some advice to my fellow friends, if u have been out of this country recently and feel sick after u come back, better go and check so that u wont burden friends and family around u. Have a nice weekend ahead! Ciaos!

Since last year worldwide economic down turn which started in the USA which has caused a ripple effect through out the world, Economists are expecting a worldwide economic slump in 2009 worldwide. But maybe many of us Malaysians are not feeling the effections because it doesnt cause alot difference in some other industry compare to 10 years ago. But in my industry, which is tourism line, it makes a big effections. Less tourist, currency rate problem, cost cutting, late payment, cheaper tour fees, minus fees tour, non profitable incentive tour.. With all these issues, tourism line becomes a tough job for lot of peoples since this industry is consider one of the majority incomes for most Sabahan. Nobody have any idea or actual predictions of how long is this ripple going to last.
I'm one of them, so instead of sitting duck and "tunggu mati", lately i made some worst preparation of letting go one of my current burden...
My Lovely 7 seaters MPV Naza Citra... T.T
This car has been with me since early of 2007 and i'm the 1st owner.. I Love this car so much.. Now i have to watch it go away to other owner who have the extra dope to afford it.. Its kind of heart stabbing..
Pls allow me to introdce my new babeh into the family hehe... I'm sure its soon gonna be my favourite! Its a little devil! ^o^
Aiyah sorry ah..No time to shoot the clear and whole pics of it yet cause when i shot these batch of pics it was kind of dark already hehe... I will come out with another batch of pics in the future post.. ^_^
