MIX, WORK AND PLAY

1. Remember your goal: Every passion, when you turn it into a career, does become a job. But it is much easier to go to work when you’re not just putting in your time but your interests as well.

2. Fail and learn: Research and development is a lot of failure. You can successfully prove many different ways not to do something before you find out that is right. Anybody who doesn’t use failure as a part of his/her learning curve is either kidding himself/herself or is out of touch.

3. Write it down: Keep a small notebook with yourself. You may get little crazy, goofy ideas all the time and there will be guys around you doing the same. Then you can all sit and do a brain dump on a regular basis. A lot of times, one idea feeds another and a third one springs from that. Keep them all. There are a lot of things you might think of tomorrow that might not have applicability until next year or a few years down the line as technology and materials come into play that makes it possible. There are no bad ideas, just unused ones.

4. Keep working: It’s difficult to master this craft. To constantly improve is the greatest part of the game. Improve the next version and deliver a better product so people can have a little bit more fun than they had yesterday.

What does fear mean to you?

Before I forget when the words disappear into another dimension I would rather write it down before it is all gone too soon.

As I was on my way to work. A thought triggers and says “Don’t let fear gets bigger or it will destroy you”. Once fears over consume you. You are dead and you fall in a bigger pit which will take years to recover. So whenever you are afraid, take small actionable steps and overcome it whenever you have doubts conquering your dreams every time the thoughts shudders. It is better to take action to discover the answer rather than wait for it to come or otherwise it will be gone forever.

Ohhhh how right. Yes, hmmm take small actionable goals whenever it may be. Ahhhh….heaving a sigh with understanding.

Metropolis in a decade

I can’t believe I dreamed that in Clementi area where I lived which is part of Singapore has turned into metropolis and there were people who live in poverty. It was an ugly sight and not everyone can stomach seeing this small Clementi area turn into a monster. Many rich people alike millionaire living luxury in this area that cause me to see things which I wasn’t expecting in two decades.

Oh my, how things have drastically changed so much that I couldn’t begin to fathom the word “WHY?” I saw buildings with executive condominium standing tall in front of the HDB therefore blocking the sun’s rays through my windows where I usually so used to seeing the bright lights. As I peer across the executive condos and I saw people’s actions through the glass panel across my windows. It was so lively but at the same time my heart sank because it was not the Clementi I once knew. Everything has transformed.

As I looked down the street through my windows, I saw like millions of people crowding the street. It was so darn packed and my mum looked at it with sorrow that she couldn’t go to market like before due to the throngs of crowds jostling around. Every car was hybrid technology equipped. I felt that I was seeing the future that stand before me. It was so overwhelming.

Then suddenly I awoke and found myself in present day on my bed and heave a sign of relieve. I am back. It was just only a dream. I believe that dream has a message for me. As it reads in my thoughts “Overcome your negative mindset and accept the challenge of your decision not the people around you.” Ahhhhh….

Holstee Manifesto

这就是你的生活。
做你爱做的事情,而且要经常地做。
那些你不喜欢的事物,试着去改变。
不喜欢你的工作,那就辞了。
没有足够的时间,那就别看电视。
停止去寻找你生命中的爱,
因为他们一直在等着你开始去做你爱做的事情。
不要过于精打细算。
所有的情感都是美丽的。
不管你在吃什么,请怀着感激去享受那最后一口。
打开你的思想,张开你的肩膀,敞开你的胸怀去迎接新的事物跟人,
正因为我们的不同,才被紧紧地连结在一起。
遇见的下一个人,问问他的热情所在,并分享你的梦想。
经常出去走走。
有的时候迷路了,有助于找到真正地自己。
机不可失,失不再来。
生活是关于那些你遇到的人,以及跟他们一起的创造的。
那还等什么,开始去创造吧!
生活是实现你的梦,并要分享这一切。
总而言之,那就是你的热情!

Dreaming a Dream

To pay a high price dreaming will always be harsh and long.

It is not ok to have a debt to pay just to dream because it will only lead to confusion and arduous which therefore lose it shine and focus.

One day, it will be a beautiful dream if you took a longer route to reach the destination. If your dream reach at the end and you succeed, you have finally made the cut but you discover less than people who travel a long journey but that person will definitely discover many meaningful things.

That will define a person.

A dream may be accomplished in a year, several years or even a decades no matter what the outcomes and cost. There is a price to pay. But the reality is still filled with noise if you dream of practical things but it will definitely never borne fruits just because of a debt.

So take things at a time and continue to move on, find a reason to support your magical dream.

To dream big, put forth your action, it is better late than never.

Action is a big restorer of your faith and a big leap forward. So continue to dream and don’t lose hope or otherwise it will become your lifetime of regrets. So don’t…give up, never give up, please don’t give up…..

Finally of all, it is not a matter of how good you are but your dream must be great only when you will realize how deep the potential is by achieving small greater things than doing big greater things.

We can turn today into tomorrow’s dream.

A dream by power nap

I took a power nap and I dreamed a dream….and the conversation goes like this. I was so inspired….

Life Mentor: If your drama ends here you are definitely not Rudy. You ignored your friends and as a result your see your friends succeed first. But…your drama’s end isn’t here. If it extends this long, the ending may be different. You’ve realized, reflected on and fixed your problem and you’ve grow from it. If this normal story comes true, then you could be the main character of this drama. Your drama is far from over.

It isn’t moving along quicker. If you take your time, you can end up seeing a lot more than people who rush by.

If you ask me who will make it big

I would say the person who took their time to see a lot more.

There is still a long ways until your drama is over.
So don’t fret that it is not going quicker.

If you go slower, you can see a lot more than those that go by quickly.

If you ask me who will grow more out of the successful ones.

Believe it is the person that goes slower and sees more.

Rudy: Hmm…mmmm…

Forced myself to wake up. Ahhhhhh..

MOTHER爱之缩写:

‘M’ is the million things she gave me;

‘O’ is only that she’s growing old;

‘T’ is the tears she shed to save me;

‘H’ is for her heart of purest gold

‘E’ is for her eyes, with love-light shining;

‘R’ means right, she is always right here for me.

EQUALS TO MOTHER!! RIGHT!! ^_^

I—inject投入、L—loyal忠诚、O—observant用心、V—valiant勇敢、E—enjoyment喜悦、Y—yes愿意、O—obligation责任、U—unison和谐,这就是最爱的一种诠释,你说过I Love You吗?

Hahaha…this was taken from my Canon IXUS 750. ^_^

Happiness

幸福不是你房子有多大,而是房里的笑声有多甜;幸福不是你开多豪华的车,而是你开着车平安到家;幸福不是你的爱人多漂亮,而是爱人的笑容多灿烂;幸福不是 在你成功时的喝彩多热烈,而是失意时有个声音对你说:朋友别倒下!幸福不是你听过多少甜言蜜语,而是你伤心落泪时有人对你说:没事,有我在。

Happiness is not by how big your house but how sweet the laughter can fill the room; happiness is not about the luxurious car but can drive home safely; happiness is not how beautiful your love is but a sincere brilliant smile; happiness is not about being successful and having enthusiastic applause but there is a disappointed voice saying: “Friends do not fall!” Happiness is not how much you hear about sweet talking but when you cry and someone says: “I will be there for you.”

Happiness knows no bounds

上海外滩

爱你,恨你
谁知道?
水一样的情感有没有地方躲
千山传递,使千弯路
直到你到达遥远的天空
在人生的道路很长
谁知道,一直孤独的英雄?
如果你看到了一切一天
你的生活会少争像凉风和帆
