Ever had an incident where when you were feeling like ‘shit’ and down, everything seemed to be going really bad for you? and when you’re feeling great, the day seems to be going really good?. What’s going on in our mind determines how we perceive what is happening to us. Our emotions control our actions, our decisions, and our reactions. Would you like to know how you can change your state in an instant? It would be great if we could go from upset to happy in an instant, yes?
“Every time I stand before a beautiful beach, its waves seem to whisper to me: If you choose the simple things and find joy in nature’s simple treasures, life and living need not be so hard.”
Whilst initially rather reluctant when I was asked to take on this assignment, I had a change of heart as soon as the MASWINGS twin prop plane flew over the island. The lagoon that Pulau Layang Layang is famed for was beautifully visible from the air along with the only cluster of buildings and airstrip. Continue reading “Layang Layang Island”
In life we go through many different phases and at each of these phases i believe we are a different person. A different person because our accumulated life experiences continuously shapes us and drives the decisions and choices we make in life.

2018 was to me one of those years i wish would go by in a hurry. While as an entrepreneur my life has been dotted with many ups and downs, i have to say 2018 taught me many painful lessons. Painful in the literal sense too!
2018 also showed me very clearly that for every dark cloud there is a silver lining, and there cannot be light without darkness, and you cannot enjoy the rainbow without some rain. So i must say that some of these lessons in 2018 helped spark radical changes in my life that have yielded great positive outcomes. As Rumi once said, ‘the wound is the place where the light enters you’.
In this post we take a look at the top 13 lessons i learnt this year. I am penning this down in hopes that you benefit from me and don’t have to learn them the hard way like I did.

“You’ll never change your life until you change something you do daily. The secret of your success is found in your daily routine.” ―John C. Maxwell
Being rather honest here, i have never been known to be the disciplined sort. In fact, i doubt the word ever existed in my vocabulary and i reckon i’d be closely associated to the words couch potato and lazy. It came to a point a few months ago that Mc Donald’s delivery and food panda were an almost daily affair because i was just too lazy to go out or cook. And naturally, i grew, sideways.
Back in February i attended Unleash The Power Within by Tony Robbins. A 3 and a half day intense event that saw us walking on flaming hot coals on the first day to breaking self limiting beliefs on the 3rd day, and filled with high energy dancing, high fives and hugs every hour every day!
“Live with an attitude of gratitude.”

Happy Chinese New Year everyone! May the year of the dog be filled with an abundance of good health, wealth and most importantly HAPPINESS!
It’s that time of the year again, parties, dinners, holidays and celebrations. For many, its where we take the time to look back at the year and reflect on what we did right, try really hard to remember what we didn’t do, bask in the memories of what we did, and then set new resolutions and goals for the coming new year. How was your 2017? Here is my year in a nutshell and some of the key lessons i learnt throughout the year.
