I don’t know how long I will take as I walk through this journey and this is my first time taking “such a walk”. I don’t know what it is at the other end of the tunnel though I do have a rough idea. I can only predict but can never be sure, no one can.
As I walk, I know I will have to pass through rough roads, “T” junctions where I have to stop and think a while, cross junctions where I need to know where I want to go and through empty fields where I must know what I want in life. I also expect to shed tears of joy as well as tears of sorrows. I will laugh because I got what I desperately want but I will also mourn because I may have lost something precious.
What will it be? How will it be? When will it be?
No one knows. Its a journey destined for me and I have to walk through it...alone. Bitter sweet memories that comes along the way, I just have to cherish them day by day. And I hope before too long, I can see light at the other end of the “tunnel of my life”.
Walk with me,
And we will see.

Anyway, just want to say that in life, everything is a choice. One of the greatest things God has given to us is the power to "choose". We can choose to be happy or unhappy. If we choose to be happy, then we can also choose to be happy this way or be happy that way.
Welcome to life.

Anyway, here is one short story on "being misunderstood".
There were two brothers who were very very close and spent a lot of time doign everything together. The elder brother, Marcus, started to work and his business grew bigger while his 7 years old younger brother, Michael, was left alone most of the time now. After some many months, they never actually talked anymore and Michael missed his Marcus very much.
One day, Michael waited for Marcus to get home from work and towards midnight, his Marcus came home looking tired. Michael instantly jumped up and dashed towards Marcus and insistently pulled him aside the room. Michael asked Marcus how much he makes an hour in his business. And Marcus answered, "About $450". Michael paused for a moment and replied, " Great, then can I borrow $200 from you?" Marcus asked why Michael needed so much money and Michael said he needed the money for something important. Reluctantly, Marcus took out his wallet and pulled out 200 bucks and gave it to his younger brother.
Michael happily took the money. Brought out his old saving box, Michael opened the rusted lid. Took out the money he saved and added them together with the money he just received. Upon seeing so much money in the box, Marcus was furious. He gave a slap on Michael's head and shouted, "Why still ask me for $200 when you have more than that yourself?".
Michael cried but persistently gathered all the money and counted them twice. Marcus was furious. But before Marcus could say another word, Michael handed over the money to his elder brother saying, "Here is $450. Can I buy one hour of your time?" Marcus was stunned and went speechless. At that moment, he could only tear. And he gave his younger brother a big hug and spent the rest of th evening with him.
There will be times when our actions are being misunderstood for something else. Its either your choice of words being misleading or the receiving side being too sensitive or maybe, not in an exact good mood to patiently understand you clearly. To be misunderstood is generally quite "swallowable" but to be misunderstood by your loved one is really painful.
So guys, learn to deliver your messages clearly and dont be too quick and sensitive to judge.

I plan to buy a new Suzuki Swift...and the waiting period is about 2 weeks, and that's pretty fast, mind you. But I said to this other dealer that I want the car fast and he replied..."1 week". Now that's super fast for new cars delivery but still, I gotto wait 7 agonising days.
As all of you know, my cholesterol level is high and I am now on this Lipitol to subdue the levels. Obviously, I want it controlled immediately but my medication is 30days. So, I have to be on medication for 30days before I can go back to have my cholesterol level checked again.
Life is a journey. And in a journey, there will be times where we just have to wait for the right moments to do the right things. Unfortunately, no one in this world have enough wisdom to advice anyone of any situation on when is the "right time" to do the "right things".
There are so many things I want to do and get done yesterday but I can't because the "time" is not right for anything yet. I get so frustrated because things are not done. Sometimes, I want certain things so badly that I hide and cry alone but there is nothing I can do at that moment in time.
Here is a popular song by Whitney Houston. I thought the lyrics are awesome and kinda talks a bit about how I feel now. Here is "One Moment In Time"...

There are so many things I want to do in my life but never gotten the chance to. There are so many things I want to change in my life but I don't know how to. If only...if only I have all the answers to all my questions and frustrations...that would be nice as well.
But it is always not as easy as it may seem to be. There is always a price to pay for everthing and anything. So, what is my price if I wanted something so badly? I really don't know...I really don't. Or maybe its not about "how much" that price is but rather "how to" make that price "paid".

Last year, I made exactly 10 trips to Genting. And this year, I will start my first trip to Genting this Friday for a 3D2N shoot for a corporate annual dinner event. Will I hit 10 trips again or will I hit more this year? We'll see, we'll see.
Anyway, for our foreign visitors to this blog, here is an arial view of the wonderful highland resort.

And now, its January and its time for the promised medical check-up! I never like medical check-ups. Guess I'll just have to "do it".

Countdown Street Celebration has become an annual affair here at Sg Wang, Jln Bukit Bintang. And this year is no exception. With an estimated crowd size of tens of thousands, the entire area was flooded with people from all walks of life. It was a super hot day and it also rained at around 10pm. Had a bad headache from the heat and stressed shoulders (due to my heavy camera bag, a Lowepro CompuTrekker Plus AW, packed with my gears and spare equipment and also a 15.4" laptop). Right arm muscle pain (result of a combination of a D2X, 17-55 and SB800) and both legs overworked walking up and down Jln Bukit Bintang!
But overall, it was great fun and a great reasosn to celebrate. 988 did a great job hosting the event and it was telecast live over 8TV. Apparently, many called up to say they saw me on TV!!! Haha...I must have been obstructing the TV cameras! LOL.
1pm Rehearsals and sound checks. 6pm Dinner time (sumptously prepared buffet sponsored by Sg Wang at U-Cafe). 6:45pm Extreme skating stunt demos (roller blades) by Malaysia's one and only Soul Skaters, followed by brass band performance by VI school. 8pm Stage performances and games hosted by Digi. 9pm Arrival of VIPs and media. 9:30pm Showtime. 12midnight Countdown to 2008, followed by fireworks displays and concert continues. 12:45am Concert ends, DJ takes over the main stage. 1am Celebration Party at Park Royal Hotel (just opposite Sg Wang). 2:30am Go home...beh tahan liao!!!
Here are some pictures to tell more stories...
