Life as it is. Can’t complain really.

I’ve just completed my first month of my career in Advertising!

Thing is I still haven’t sorted out paper work for my salary and stuff! I’ve been so couped up in the office that I don’t even have time to fill those out! How am I gonna get my salary! D:

How am I gonna get the things that I want?

Currently on my shopping list… these are what I am eyeing (below)!

Nike SB Dunk High “Red Devil”

A really nice Varsity Jacket

I need to get a smart casual jacket too! In case we have an impromtu meeting with the clients or the big bosses!

Pharell Williams so good at his fashion sense!

A new electric guitar!

Fancy bag to take to work 🙂 (Something like this would be shiek!)

ASOS Wolfgang Backpack

A fancy metal flask that speaks “I’m ECO Friendly!”

Perhaps I should have my own potted plant in the office 😉

Also, I gotta get myself a fancy mug for the office!

Punch Mug

Or a cool and medieval goblet!

Jason goblet (Now this is AWESOME)

Probably one of the most important things that I would need at work is a really good planner/or a calender/wall planner, as the nature of my job requires timely matters!

Moleskin planner

Probably a nice ukelele or a guitar at the office to take away the blues and have some fun! : )

Ukulele

Well… one day I would really wanna work like this!

Office by the beach

That would definitely be awesome to work in such an awesome environment. Probably something like in Phuket or Phi Phi!

Then I would feel like this everyday : )

STOKED!

Lovin’ life at the moment. Can’t complain really, cause God has given me so much more than what I asked for!

The ship set sail

Voyage of Columbus

Before a captain sets sail on his ship,

Before a captain departs on his voyage,

He sets a plan that will last through the age.

He spills out the map and lay down the tracks,

the beginning of a great movement awaits.

The Days and nights quick fades away,

The ship yet still stays at bay.

His dear friend has joined arms in his quest,

Yet confidence grew less and less.

He said: “Kill that anxiety and have faith my friend!”

Captain replied: “Yes my brother its time to make mend!

We shall rise and reap the opportunities laid before us

and let not pass like a ship in the night!”

T’was months pass by and progress has seen ripen,

his days of learning has deepen.

As time is ripe to reap its harvest,

its time to gather the men and steadfast towards our very quest.

Gather the men, ship held at bay,

yet men who’s been to sea will hold to bay.

Young Bloods is scarce,

yet to find a gem among stone,

will be one to savor.

The Crew

“Gather, gather the men who are braver!

Your time has come to seize the day!”

Thy captain awaits his men,

to raise from the earth and take his place.

For when the time comes, along thy captain they shall stand,

The ship will set sail when the ships crew are chosen.

The ship will then set sail.

Since coming back from Australia!

Wow! has it been a week and a half since I came back?

For those of you who didn’t know… I’m HOME! On a holiday of course! Till first week of Feb!

First few things I noticed and almost forgot what Malaysia was all about was:

1. ITS HOT and HUMID!!!

2. TRAFFIC JAMS! ( i’ve grown accustomed to the Aussie roads and there is hardly much traffic in Canberra!) Traffic jams there are like 5 mins.. LOL

3. Toilet seats are relatively lower than Aussie ones!

4. Food is great! (Not awesome, but Good!) Grandma’s curry was EPIC tho!!!

Personally, what I miss most was:

1. My family! (John’s in Kansas btw)

2. Queen size bed!

3. My Serena! (it’s what I named my guitar. After Serena in Gossip Girl) 😀

4. My close friends

5. My Band and gigs!!!

Gosh! It was a tiring few days back! Been so busy!

Firstly, was to shoot the music video for ‘Snake With Limbs’ (click here for behind the scenes!)

Secondly, I’ve had 3 shows in a week! 2 proms at Sri KL and Taman Sea! Taman Sea prom was super awesome! Everyone was having so much fun! We met a really cute band too! Let Go Tomorrow are still young and I can’t wait to see what will birth from them in a few years time! (Click here for a picture of us and Let Go Tomorrow!)

Followed in the same week was Rock The World 10! It is a significant one for me cause last year’s one, I was Darren’s guitar tech! This year, I am performing with my band mates and for the year that I’ve been with An Honest Mistake, I salute to my band members that it was an awesome year and it’s been a privilege playing along side talented individuals that makes up what An Honest Mistake is today! Hope to make more records with you guys next year! We got big plans yo!

Lastly, I’ve been busy recuperating at home and working part time, which helps my portfolio! So you can say I’m on a ‘Working Holiday’! I’ll be working closely with Kevin ‘Cottie’ Tan on An Honest Mistake’s media kit and profile! Harnessing my skills that I’ve as an Advertising and Marketing Communication student!

Well… that’s all for now! We got a gig that the band has organized! Check out the poster below!

Holidays so far & preparing for migration…

Hey guys!

It’s again been a long while since I’ve blogged in this space! Don’t worry guys! This blog will not fade away! It holds lots of memories and important dates just like a personal Autobiography that keeps on writing until the “ink” runs out.

Well I’ve been on holidays since my exams and presentations ended on the 25th of May. I’ve to refer to my diary to keep track of my dates! hahaha… Even’t I don’t remember! Since holidays started, I’ve been busy with gigs and also recordings with my band An Honest Mistake, and the occasional session with A Ruthless Cleansing & Diandra.

Yesterday’s gig was super fun! An Honest Mistake was the featured act brought to you by Monsoon Records Vol.4. It was definitely a great set, comments were, the band was tight, great sound (thanks to the awesome sound man at Laundry) and everyone, including ourselves enjoyed the show!

Myself! the Emo violinist ;p

Awesome photos by Brendan Lee! You can visit more of his photos for the night here, and do visit his webpage as well here!

Other than music, I’ve been busy preparing myself to get ready to head to Canberra to further my studies, will be waiting for my results to be out hopefully by next week! If all is good and no hiccups then I will be flying on the 1st of August and arriving on the 2nd of August.. on my 21st Birthday… what a way to celebrate it on foreign soil… alone… SAD!

My friends and family were saying that they wanted to celebrate it earlier haha… My wish is actually to have a concert for my birthday…. Guess it will be next time then when I come back! Not to fret though, cause I’m only there for a year, so I’ll be back in the beginning of July 2011!

fly away to a new place.. like birds migrating to a new home...
