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 ...

Share New York the Big Apple!
2017-1-16 06:36
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. I aim to do my part in promoting arts, culture and cuisine of Chinese people here! If anyone is interested I can be your tour guide whenever you are in the Big Apple! 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 ...

Share The creator in you
2017-1-6 08:20
I just had a radical thought. After being in the workforce for more than 15 years in the government, media, education, religious and corporate faculties, I wonder if it is possible for the world's working population to unite and serve under the same 'entity'. The 5 estates mentioned above have vastly different goals. In an ideal world, governments exist to roll out policies that protects and safeguard the welfare of its citizens. Media organizations function almost like a watchdog, a school pre ...

Catharsis. Healing. Love
I recently took an intensive filmmaking course at the New York Film Academy. It has always been my dream to turn my 3 novels into films, big or small screen. I love all forms of story-telling, and I believe from the bottom of my heart of the lessons, teachings and compassion embedded inside my novels. I write because I wanted to share some deep emotional experiences which I hope could be of help to others. It started as a therapeutic means to ease some painful experiences, and as I wrote and inv ...

The art of teaching
I shall start the new year exploring the topic of teaching. Is it an art form, or a matter of science? As an artist and a creative soul, I believe most things in life is an art form. Even scientific roles and practices such as doctors, lawyers, accountants, designing sculptures or even computer software programming etc. Yes, the items I just mentioned above commonly have to abide by their own unique language. Computer programming utilizes the binary code, or simply 1 and 0 and a set of 'IF' lo ...
