And...yup...I know...she is beautiful. Haha!
Outlining Your Intentions
Making a List of What You Want
The universe is aware of both the concrete goals we actively pursue and the nebulous dreams we have not yet begun to refine. Neither our struggles nor the daydreams that inspire us are beyond the range of universal perception. Yet to manifest our aspirations, we not only need to know what it is we generally wish to achieve; we also need to clearly articulate these aims to ourselves and the universe. When we create a list of what we want, citing each item in as much detail as possible, our aspirations take on new substance. What was once a mere wish becomes real and achievable when put into words. As you pour the contents of your heart and soul into your list, your well-defined ambitions become a part of you, and the universe responds to your new determination by placing opportunities related to your objectives in your path.
Whatever the nature of your desires, your list can help you channel your intellectual and emotional power into your efforts to realize them. The list you create should not simply be a record of your individual goals. Rather, it should be a comprehensive, exhaustive catalog of each target you want to reach and your reasons for aiming for them. This may mean that your list will encompass many pages of text, since when you write down and review your ambitions, you empower yourself to more accurately direct your goal-realization efforts. You then also have a framework in place that helps you distinguish success from setbacks. If you keep your list in a convenient spot and review it daily, you will inadvertently reaffirm your conviction to your aspirations, demonstrating to the universe that you are truly devoted to your chosen path while keeping your objectives fresh in your mind. If you have an altar, this would be a great place to keep your list.
As you compose your list, try not to edit or judge what you have written. Some of what you want may seem outlandish when considered in the context of your current circumstances. Whether you are destined to fulfill the items on the unique long-term agenda you create in a year, 10 years, or 20 years, if you are free with your ideas and understand that you may not bring these dreams into the realm of reality for some time, your list will attract the universe’s benevolence even as it energizes and inspires you.
Using Your Power
"Our lives are defined by the decisions we make each day. When we choose one option over another, whether we are selecting a restaurant or considering a cross-country move, we shape our lives. The decision-making process can be empowering, allowing us to enjoy the benefits of self-determination. Yet it can also be a source of anxiety because decisions force us to face the possibility of dissatisfaction and inner conflict. As a result, many of us opt to avoid making decisions by allowing others to make them for us. We consequently turn our power over to spouses, relatives, friends, and colleagues, granting them the stewardship of our lives that is ours by right. Though the decisions we must make are often difficult, we grow more self-sufficient and secure each time we trust ourselves enough to choose.
Ultimately, only you can know how the options before you will impact your daily life and your long-term well-being. Within you lies the power to competently weigh the advantages and disadvantages of each selection. Even if you feel incapable of making a decision, your inner wisdom and your intuitive mind will give you sound counsel if you have faith in yourself. Try to come to your own conclusions before seeking the guidance of others, and even then, treat their suggestions as supplementary information rather than votes to be tallied. Before making your choice, release your fear of wrong decisions. Perceived mistakes can lead you down wonderful and unexpected paths that expose you to life-changing insights. If you can let go of the notion that certain choices are utterly right while others are entirely wrong, you will be less tempted to invite others to take the reigns of your destiny.
When your choices are your own, you will be more likely to accept and be satisfied with the outcome of those choices. Your decisions will be a pure reflection of your desires, your creativity, your awareness, and your power. Since you understand that you must live with and take responsibility for your decisions, you will likely exercise great care when coming to conclusions. As you learn to make informed and autonomous choices, you will gain the freedom to consciously direct the flow of your life without interference. "
This message has been sitting in my mailbox since 21st August. Only today I click it and read it. Michael Dell once told that someone asked him "Michael, please tell me how to do it?" and Michael told him that "if it has to be me who tell you how to do it, then you will be more likely don't know how to do it."
Am now in the process...
The father said, “Yes.” And they ran their first marathon together.
Another time, the son asked his dad again “Daddy, would you like to run a marathon with me?” The father again said, “Yes, son.”
One day, the son asked his father “Daddy, would you run the Ironman with me?”
(The Ironman is the most difficult triathlon ever: 4 km of swimming, 180 km of biking and 42 km of running).
And the dad said, “Yes".
He is somehow disappointed to the attitude of nowadays youngster. He showed me the newspapers he has collected, all about death due to robbing cases, lepak culture, cut class students, all these negativity annoys him. He complains about the government does not appreciate his craftsmanship, where other countries treasure it by asking him to go oversea and teach his skill to the younger generation. I asked him why is he still here. He replied with a sigh, "I am too old for all the travelings."
"Luckily I am still strong and healthy, without the old man diseases." He smiled at me and continued, "because my tasks here are still yet to be completed."
I watched him doing his work while chatting with him, thinking of preservation of his form of art. Sadly, there is no one inherit his craftsmanship according to him. When he dies, the art dies with him.
God bless Mr. Fong, a living treasure of Balik Pulau, Penang, or even Malaysia.
Spent a comfortable Sunday morning breakfast at siTigun, Nagore Place.We had Latte, Americano, bacon, scramble egg and croissant. It is a nice place to hang out during weekend with cozy environment, WiFi with good homemade meals, pastries and coffees.
One more thing to enjoy at this place is the owner's cute little son. He just can't stop laughing and simply made my day a joyful one :)
About siTigun, please go to their website for more information:
I was in a rush, she was in a hurry. Sometimes proper planing might not turnout as planned due to "accidents". We had to squeeze 6 hours shooting plan into 2 hours and that was intense!
After browsed through the photos, still my same old shooting style, not much difference. Well, I need to improve myself to shoot in an intense environment, yet still can get the results that I want. :)
She is CAROLINE
Apparently, the sun didn't show up and was hiding behind the cloud. :(
The last 2 photos, I call them Monday Blue and you know why. :P
Have to prepare for my work now. Good morning folks!
It is a reflection of my point of view for human being. Everybody has their own bright side and dark side, no pure good or pure evil.
When there is light, there is shadow. This is the nature, to maintain the balance of the world. Well, solely my point of view.
Everyday, we never stop facing blockage, discouragement, failure and what should we do about that? Do we give up? or do we keep on trying until we reach our goals and success? It's the matter of your own choice. If you are someone with a perfectly healthy body and still choose to give up, please watch this video. His name is Nick Vujicic. Be inspired.
Something to share with you all in this busy afternoon of mine. :P
The weather recently is very strange. Although it rains all the time but seems like the down pour still not able to cool down the earth. I'm not sure whether these photos will bring up the temperature or not. But during the shooting, it was very hot. Why? Because this shooting was done with a 600w tungsten light, continuous light source. I did it same time with the previous post shooting, Fantasy. Model complained...bright and hot!! Anyway, I am satisfy with the outcome. :) Thanks to my model, and my beloved assistant of course, for the success of this tryout.
What is our definition of DANCE? To express our feelings, no words, no sophisticate complicated techniques, to build a caring and loving society through dance. As simple as that.
I am touch by this video clip found in Youtube. That's how DANCE should be.
Making a wish is only the first step. We are now working towards our goals, for our wish to come true. ^__^d
As usual, my role is to capture the moments during the dance performance. Bravo to Aida, Kat and all the performers in the show!
See them fly here.
This was the plane I boarded.
The propeller of the plane and I was just sitting next to it.
The plane took off at about 11.50am due to some delay according to the pilot announcement. A little bit shaky during the take off, or maybe it was just my imagination? :P As usual, I took out my camera and snapped a few photos from the sky.
One of the "prides" of Penang, the Penang Bridge. If you want to experience traffic jam above the sea, this will be the perfect place for you. From half an hour to two three hours, you named it. You can actually stop the car, come down, have a cigarette and also enjoy the beautiful scenery of Penang on the bridge. But seriously, without this bridge the traffic system in Penang will be ten times worst. Anyway, bridge expansion job is in the progress and hopefully this will help smoothen the traffic.
The plane reached the sky of Kota Bahru in about 40 minutes and touched down at about 12.45pm. Nothing much too talk about the business part. It is always about meeting, system demonstration, Q & A session and try to fullfill the requirements of the client. After almost three and a half hours of tensioned mind, I had a short tour around Kota Bahru.
Outside the old palace of Kelantan and by the way, Kota Bahru is the capital of Kelantan and Kelantan is one of the states in Malaysia.
The new happening place in Kota Bahru with shoping mall and apartments.
Most popular hangout spot in Kota Bahru for youngsters. A bottle of cold beer by the river bank maybe? Sorry, no alcoholic drinks allow in Kelantan.
Sunset at Kelantan River.
Took a night bus back to Penang after dinner as the next flight back to Penang was the next day morning. This was my third visit to Kota Bahru. First time was about twelve years ago, a business trip and second time was like seven years ago, a dance performance...O.o
