Homelessness
Last night, I was one of the many volunteers who joined forces in counting the number of homeless people (as best as we could anyways) in the City of Angels. Championed by the Los Angeles Homeless Services Authority (LAHSA), the energetic clarion call was echoed by the Los Angeles Police Department, media outlets and policy makers alike. Having lived in Australia and now America, and spending my formative years in Asia a non-welfare region, the alarming increase of tent cities and its citizens ...

Share Absolute leadership
2018-1-23 02:37
I just read President Xi's latest mantra on China's ruling government and its focus on 'absolute leadership'. I applaud his vision and efforts in creating an undivided goal. It's always easier said than done, and the challenge is really to balance absoluteness with humanity. Humans have emotions, thoughts, desires, fears, weaknesses etc. Unless you are a robot void of all of the just mentioned. When I was entrusted with the role of a team leader with American Express, the first book I bought w ...

John Wick the new James Bond?
It was a very surreal feeling to me. A few months after I wrapped my student film Le Grand Central in New York, I came across John Wick 2 and realized the eerie similarity. Roman and Greek mythology, dark underworld, suspense, revenge, vigilante, honor, sacred vows and mysterious characters emerging from far flung exotic places. I swear, I did not know anything about John Wick or what its creators were attempting to do before LGC was produced. Was it a spiritual intervention.? Parallel worlds c ...

Goodbye New York, Hello Hollywood!
Finally one of my biggest dreams is about to come true! After 39 years of watching Hollywood TV and films from my small hometown of Ipoh, Malaysia.......I am moving to Hollywood next week! Yippeeee :D My family had one of the fondest memories of huddling together around our 1st TV when it came out in the 80s. I remember my dad bought it and invited our neighbours to come watch this magical thing called moving images on the screen. It was black and white then and yet we were all so thrilled and ...

HELP! An Ipoh business icon is closing down after 71 years in operations....
Chan Sam Lock, Malaysia's biggest wedding studio and an Ipoh icon is planning to cease operations after 71 years in operations. The reasons mentioned include failure to find successors and intense pressure from new digital technologies. As a Master's holder in International Business, I know it takes a lifetime to build and sustain a good business reputation. It would be such a pity to see this symbol of Chinese perseverance, sacrifices and wisdom fade away from our memories, when in turn th ...

I wish to learn Gu Zheng....the exotic Chinese harp
After re-watching Kung Fu Hustle by the very talented Stephen Chow, I have a desire to learn how to play the Gu Zheng. I have a grade 7 piano certificate from the The Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music. Although quite different in the techniques, I'd like to think it emits the same peaceful and beautiful melody. Music has been my saviour through many challenging times in my life. I really am grateful for the creators, songwriters, artists and musicians for sharin ...

Share Will to win
2017-6-2 21:54
I write this blog with a heavy heart. I was born a twin, and raised in a family where meritocracy and competency was championed. My parents are very Western-minded. Even though I may be a twin, they cherished individual efforts and resulting rewards. For is it fair, if let's say I being the more hardworking and gifted twin devote my energy, blood, sweat and tears in creating a successful project but my other twin DEMANDS the same recognition and reward? It's not fair, is it? It's outright bullyi ...

Share Eradicating poverty - China dream
2017-2-26 02:30
I recently read about China's reiteration on its national dream in eradicating poverty. This is a common battle cry amongst all nations, from 3rd world to developed countries. In my humble opinion, devising a 'blanket' or 'one-size-fits-all' approach will not work due to the reasons below (non-exhaustive):- 1. China's sheer size in land mass and distinctly unique provinces makes it impossible to absorb a generic policy in eliminating poverty. 没有两个雪花是相同的. 2. To eliminate poverty ...

Hello everyone! I have officially moved to New York. I live in the garden state, New Jersey which is just across Manhattan separated by the Hudson River.

It is still winter here, it snowed just yesterday but it's not harsh and very gentle :) I will be celebrating Spring Festival in Chinatown and will share photos. I welcome you ...

Share Letting the Yuan free fall/rise
2017-1-9 04:36
I just read in a business newspaper in the Hoboken Library of the possibility of the Yuan flying 'free'. By free, I mean letting current market forces dictate its true value without governmental tinkering. Economics was never one of my strongest subjects in university, but the entrepreneur and Chinese native in me tend to think it may not be a bad idea overall. Sure, if the Yuan becomes 'expensive' in the global arena then China's export industry may be hit. Conversely if the Yuan becomes t ...
