Somos Novios

Catch the Video here.

Really beautiful piece. And it is unbelievable! Katherine McPhee learnt it just 1 week prior to the live performance. And I actually do prefer this compared to the Christina version. Just feel that there are more emotions from her voice.

Meet up with Paiboon

He gave us a few messages to take home. It was a refreshing idea on happiness. As he said, we have to go through the process and experience it for ourselves. I know I can't figure it out just by reasoning it out. (I've tried thinking real hard about it for a few hrs). Perhaps I am limited by my span of the worldly emotions and experiences and knowledge.

"Life is short. Don't take things for granted."

To answer the call or not?

Paiboon, if you are reading this, I know you won't find this to be any compliment to you. But I do admire your courage.

I'm Alive

The original music video (w/o the mouse)

When you call on me
When I hear you breathe
I get wings to fly
I feel that I'm alive

When you look at me
I can touch the sky
I know that I'm alive

When you bless the day
I just drift away
All my worries die
I'm glad that I'm alive

When you reach for me
(When you reach for me)
Raising spirits high
God knows that...

That I'll be the one
Standing by through good and through trying times
And it's only begun
I can't wait for the rest of my life

Revolutionary Phone

We seem to love all-in-one. With the iPhone, life's simpler?

Any more spoof?

Life Cycle

I spent part of the Saturday afternoon, cosily in my bed, reading my 1st book of the year.

A point is made in the book which I think the writer describe it flawlessly using the Wizard of Oz analogy - Dorothy had the power to go back home right from the start she step foot onto the Land of Oz. Similarly, it reminded me of "The Alchemist".

I often have the thought that in the pursue of getting better and improving ourselves, we will end up in a circle to where we started off or return to the basics. Sometimes, it also means that we realise that what we are seeking is bringing us off tangent. Usually, after this cyclic journey, we are back to what we used to be, the difference being somehow we better understand what we are doing and who we are.

This phenomenon seems like a matter of fact or perhaps it's how nature course works. I have witnessed this in friends (some of you know I'm talking about you. I'm glad for you all finding your path) as well as in myself. When I realised this fact, it has changed my coaching philosophy and the way I want to connect to people.

I'm also glad that it has occurred in ways that reveal how people are really. Fundamentally, some people doesn't changed.

Things that I am puzzled about is why is it happening in such a fashion, is it always like that and are there ways not go through the cyclic journey and end up where we are supposed to be?
(I'm putting up a reminder here to ask Uncle Paiboon this question when he is back. I believe he has an answer or at least closer to the answer I'm seeking out)

It also shot the question at me. How well do we know our needs and wants - long term and short term?

No Day But Today

This a really wonderful made-up clip with great scenes from Rent. Better than the trailer.

(Young) Bandler

A young version of Bandler. His style hasn't changed much. Except his voice got richer and better in terms of tonality and timbre. One thing of cos, he is definitely sneakier now. It's easier to catch what he is doing here and keeping track of the nested loops. Nowadays, I just get suck into his stories if I think twice about them. "You know..."

Enjoy, junkies!

The Secret

After a week into 2007, I have decided to use the "hidden secret of thousands of years" to make some goal resolution. (some of you folks know what I mean) I know these goals ain't going to look SMART, so goal clarification. They don't come in any particular priority, except in the order they come to my head and how fast my hands can type.
  1. To attain a longer period of concentration ie learn to focus better.
  2. To have a better memory - long and short term.
  3. To improve social networking skills.
  4. To improve writing skill.
  5. To read more books than 2006.
  6. To improve technical capability in work so as to create more value.
  7. To take up toastmasters again. It's been a long wait for my CTM.
  8. To hold alcohol better.
  9. To earn more money (so as to spend more money).
  10. To practice coaching skills.
  11. To become NLP junkie once in a while. (damn, it is getting boring w/o the linguistic bombardment and mind-fucking session)
  12. To get into a desired relationship.
  13. To improve work efficiency.
  14. To have a structure of thoughts that can relate to others better. (No point only me knowing what I think about)
  15. To get healthier - which also entail less junk food and earlier bedtime. (ok...think I need to think about some exercise regime also)
  16. To go diving (Indonesia??)
  17. To go trekking (hey folks, when's that? I'm counting on you guys to organize)
  18. To go canoeing? (this is really tentative. It's been a year since we say let's go canoe)
  19. To get a new PC.
  20. To redecorate/furnish bedroom.
Ok, the goals are really getting a bit crappier. Goes to show I really need #1, I have to reel myself back when I started on #11. You know, when you are in the flow of thoughts you feel like to go on and on because it just feels good and mischievous doing so and I know it's a bit messy (that's what #14 is for, isn't it) :P

All right, to sign off...."Ask, Answer, Receive"

Christmas at Cambodia

Back to Cambodia with a bunch of "crazy fellows" from MPX2 (including myself) Really wild, all of us. Chic-ku-chic-ku-log-log. LOL

Went to Sihanouk Ville, the beach area. It's fun with banana boat. Gotta sabo by the boat driver, we all capsized and get wet, thrice! That's bad enough. Had a go on the jet ski...woohoo, full speed ahead!

Went to the village on Sunday evening. Did almost everything I set out to do here. Catch up with the kids, look at Ming Xing, watch sunrise/sunset, river fun, cooked a good meal and Christmas party.
