Do you Believe in a Boy's dream?

I know there is going to be a day I have to write a blog with this title..
I believe the time has come and this is dedicated to my beloved Dad, Mom and my ever loving sister, Seok Kheng in Singapore.

I know that 3 of you worry about me a lot. Especially on things regarding my future.

[This paragraph is DELETED due to content management]

To tell you the truth, I, Don't want to live a conventional life. I don't want to just graduate, find a secure and safe job, set up a family, work, retire, and so on.
6 Billion people are living that life, do you need me to be in the chain as well?

I am seriously not asking much. I don't dream of being a superhero or so. I just want to live an extraordinary life. A life that can be told to others

A life which can inspire others...

"Aspire to Inspire before I Expire"

And to achieve that, I need to live my life differently from your friend's kid who just get into a good uni and graduate... I already have a plan... Its with AIESEC, I believe I will have a story to tell when I am older...

Its actually a very realistic plan. Just because it is unconventional, it doesn't mean its unworkable. It goes with me being a VP in the national level and then I go for an overseas Internship...

Dad, seriously,how many people in the NG family linage are leaders nationally? How many of us actually got some recognition by the society such as datukship and so forth? Don't you think its time someone do something about it?

I am not asking you to send me to the moon. I just want your permission to do something in life before I regret it totally.
I know its hard to have faith in me, especially after STPM where i nearly can't get into university.
But please, believe me... I had learned from my mistakes and I only do things which are feasible nowadays, AIESEC is feasible... trust me

I wish you can restore the faith you had in my back in my sixth form days that I can actually be somebody. Someone who have a story that people want to hear and inspire them to do extraordinary things in their life....

Have you ever come across a dream just when you are walking in the streets or so. The next moment, it vanished because something disrupted your train of thoughts. And I seriously don't want that to happen in my life again...

I am sorry I am not like the other kids you see
I am sorry that I already have plans for my life
I am sorry I've disappoint you once, I promise and make sure that never happen again
I am sorry that I am so persistent
I am sorry that I always have be a subject of worry, I promise I will do well in studies

I just have a dream, thats all...
Believe in me, and I promise I wont go wrong.....

Faster than our Shadow

Hey yo...
I'm so sorry about this really late late post..
I was actually contemplating on what to post and I've decided not to post anything about how things went in Natcon because my friends wouldn't understand and I need not to submit a report of events to my AIESECer friends.. rite?

So natcon... gosh, i really have so many things to tell you all but how am I going to summarize it into a single page? It was indeed an experience but I wont say its a life changing experience, its more like a life enhancing experience..

In AIESEC, sometimes you learn things you can't get from books. I am not saying soft skills... but more to the way of living...

Its now I know that having a great idea and making it sound ordinary is a very hard thing to do. I have to do that because I myself hate people who boast around but sometimes, when you have a train of thoughts, its very hard for you not to share. But somehow or rather, I manage to stay "humble" in discussions... Remember the movie Red Cliff where Zhuge Liang always tries to make all his knowledge sounds humble.. seriously, its not easy.

Saying things people want to hear too is very difficult... It never came naturally to me but I always try to keep this thing in mind. I know i always crack up lame jokes but I still need to keep it politically correct all the time.. haha...

To cut things short... when I've reach a level of Vice President, a lot of technical stuffs can't be learned anymore. Its only stuffs which you can pick up through observation that can be learned along the way....

Skills of such makes us more acceptable in the society...
skills that enables us to run faster than our shadow are skills you pick up through observation

Will we ever come to an Understanding?

When this friend of mine asked me what does my friend meant by I need not to shop for Nike and I began to tell her how I got my collection and the number of Nikes' I have.

She was like OMG!!
Then I asked her whats with the surprise la and then she show me the video above...

You might be wondering why would girls be screaming if they see a wardrobe full of LV and nice clothes and so on?
I dont think any MAN will have a concrete answer. Even if I say put yourself in their Heels!..haha... You wouldn't understand it either.

Its also the same.. Woman won't understand why guys would be so exited if they saw a walk-in-fridge full of heineken...Haha...
( I would do the same if its full of Absolut Vodka... not heikenen la... haha)

I don't think both man and woman will totally understand each other. At least not in our lifetime..haha. Even with Dummies encyclopedia published, we will say the facts are debatable.

But seriously, do we need to understand each other. Maybe to a certain extend, yes, but completely.. hmm, I dont think so..

It is WE who don't understand each other that makes us Complementary to one another.

haha.. looks like I studied lotza maths lately coz the quote above sounds like an equation...

Think about it yea, is total understanding necessary?

True Inspirations

With Aaron's Petronas Scholarship taking him to Italy for an internship..
Kee Cheong finally getting a scholarship from Maxis..
And my other dear friends getting scholarships from companies like YTL, Great Eastern, Genting, ASEAN, HP and many many more...

These are the people who can really inspire you to move forward in life.
Some of them are smart, but it all mostly comes from hardwork.

I've met them and as usual most of them are denying that they are working hard. Oh well, they are just being Malaysian, keeping it "humble"

I'm studying and I know its not easy to get to that level. Some say it might be because its mathematics but seriously, don't tell me statistics is tougher than medic. If it really does, I am totally doing something which is out of my league!

When I meet friends of such, I really do measure myself to them. I know pretty well I am not as capable as them but I do believe there is some way for me to reach their level of success. It might take a longer route, but the end result and achievement should be the same.

Its only when I see them, I start to believe..
Not those from the television or book...

but those besides me..

Aussie Aussie Aussie!

Hey yo... Sorry, I was a little busy with the National Pioneer's Camp which was right after my trip from Perth, Australia.. So here are some pictures which probably you might be interested in.... =p

The Perth Trip went pretty well, except the fact that shop closes at 5.00 pm everyday. Which means I either got to stay in my Hotel room all night or went to the cyber cafe to play with the Australian teens. The picture above was a glimpse of what the shopping area was like just before they closes at 5.00 pm...

Well, the next day I went to the desert of Western Australia. Judging from the fact that I've never been to a place where there is so much sand, it was still interesting!..Haha.. ( why the hell I made it sound so bad, it was really fun whut =p ). Yea, I did lotza cam whoring coz I just couldn't stand still and take a decent picture... So please forgive me...

SAND BOARDING!!!... This is the replacement for the Bungee Jump that I wanna go. But this is still pretty adrenaline-a-tive because of the super steep and high sand dune. There was one time i went too fast and rolled over from the middle of the dune right till the bottom. So I got my first taste of sand also... Well, it doesnt taste like flour..haha

Yea, here is the little kid who went sand boarding without the board.. Lol.. Kidding.. He was just rolling around... haha...

You see that?! Probably not right...

This is what I am talking about. A Muscle Bas Sekolah! I am sure with this kind of muscle bus, there will be no truancy as kids wanna be seen in this cool ride..hahahah. They too also wont be late to school as this mean machine just crushes every car on its path.. LOL...

Last but not least, biasa la, Kang -Ga- Roo. it is actually nibbling my palm and licking it... eww

And this is Tasik Titiwangsa.. lol... Of course not. Its impossible Malaysian roads can be that clean. Perth by night... And do you realise one thing,.... Where is everyone?. There is practically no people on the road at night. I wonder how they spend long autumn and winter nights... Probably by partying... No wonder got so many type of beer and wines in Aussie..haha..

Alright, This are the few photos out of the 250 photos I took in australia.. I wish I can upload everything but too bad, blog capacity tak muat.. lol..

Cyaz people and take care...

Fairytale Ending?

I'm sure everyone read a fairytale story in their lifetime...
From Rapunzel up to the Wizard of Oz, each of them has a good ending..
But if you ponder on it for a while longer... Did their stories end there, or it is just a beginning?

Take Cinderella for example...
First, of course, being bullied by the step family and the end, married with the Prince Charming.
The End... ?

What IF, Cinderella getting married to the hot prince wasn't the last page of the bedtime storybook?

Can the married couple live through happily ever after knowing the huge gap of their status?
What if the prince is a womanizer and has lots of scandal after marriage?

When everyone reads the fairytale, they would expect a Happy Ending. When everyone is satisfied with that ending, people will close the book and call it a day.
The point is....

We as human, actually decides how we end our story.

There is no such thing as we wait for an happy ending to come. Reality doesn't work that way.
If we don't work for the desired ending, It may never come. And sometimes, it is ourselves who choose to end our story abruptly or a bad way. So, who is we to blame..
There are people out there who always say that they don't mean to end it that way. But did you realise the problem had already started at the built up of your story?

Hence, if you dont like your "story", keep on "writing" till your desired ending...
Don't whine... Move on...

It ain't about how hard you can hit.

Let me tell you something you already know. The world ain't all sunshine and rainbows. It is a very mean and nasty place and it will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it. You, me, or nobody is gonna hit as hard as life.

But it ain't about how hard you hit; it's about how hard you can get hit, and keep moving forward. How much you can take, and keep moving forward. That's how winning is done.

Now, if you know what you're worth, then go out and get what you're worth. But you gotta be willing to take the hit, and not pointing fingers saying you ain't where you are because of him, or her, or anybody. Cowards do that and that ain't you. You're better than that!

-Rocky Balboa-
Speaking to his son in Rocky Balboa (2006)

These few days at home, my mom always say that the person my parents worry the most in the family is me. All because I don't seem to get what I always want and I still dream of getting that something in life.

When I replied
"I'm the last person anyone should worry about"
Bullets come flying to my face saying that this is the problem with me. Getting over confident and all. When I say I'm not, they always try to make me believe that I am...

Seriously, I know the answer. I am not over confident. I just truly understands how things work in life better than most of the people out there of my age. Things never comes easy for me and it still does, even now. Should I just give in and and let the environment lead my life?

The obvious answer is No rite. But most of the people just wont understand it when I explain this verbally.. When I say I'm the last person to worry about doesn't mean I am Over Confident, Unrealistic and Still Dreaming.

Its just I understand that in this world, if we can't find a will to move on. We won't be able to get to what we want as well. When people and situations forces us down to our knees, its always up to us to stand up and stand against their will. This is how we shape our world, and quoting above,

This is how winning is done...

remember, this world ain't about rainbow and sunshine. However, we can always find our rainbow and sunshine if we are willing to take the hits. Its about how much you can take and keep moving forward...

However, should I really be the last person one should worry about? This, I'm really not sure...
