Tiger arrived!


It's been the 6th day of joy! I am so loving being a pup's parent. Of course it's lots of grumpiness and exhuastion. But looking at Tiger's super duper cute face, it's all worth it... ;-) Not to mention today is Tiger first day know how to poo poo on paper! I am a proud ma ma.

Count Down to the South

3 more days to go for the 1st adventure to South America. Hola! Argentina and Chile.
It's a bit odd to go to places where is Fall/Winter right now. Yet, I've decided if I have to visit a place I have never been, it gotta be unexpected. Europe is too typical and I have heard so much about it, I almost felt I have been there already.

Here's a few other places I would like to go some day:
• Amafi Coast, Italy
• Mexico City -> for Mayan's ruins
• Greek Islands
• Carribeans
• Thailand
• Bali
• Inca Trail in Peru

Lazy bum • David Copperfield

Why I said that? Mainly becoz' I have put on a lot of my new year resolution on hold. And it's NOT GOOD! March is half way through, and I want to do a quick check in as for the status of my personal goals. On another unrelated note, I signed up for Dragonboat again this year. I know I said I want to try something new, I do, but at the same time, I guess it's a good rountine to keep me active.

So saw David Copperfield last sat with sister, mom and dad. It's alright, not mind-blowingly great. Lots of the tricks are kinda done. And they just looked deja-vu to me. Unimpressed. And for some reasons I thought David Copperfield looks way hotter when he was younger.

Probably the best art concept I have seen for the longest time

Obsessive Consumption.

An art concept that speaks to the crazy consumerism we live in and ironically links closely to my own profession. I am one of the culprits who makes it our culture and the surroundings we embrace. But I do recognize and aware, and at the same time, appreciate people talk about it, make fun about it and hence, make it's an interesting subject for more people to think about, when they are not busy shopping.

Now did I say "shoeshopper" on my business card?

Powerful thoughts from Dr. Phil

Life Law #6: There is no reality, only perception.
Strategy: Identify the filters through which you view the world. Acknowledge your history without being controlled by it.

You know and experience this world only through the perceptions that you create. You have the ability to choose how you perceive any event in your life, and you exercise this power of choice in every circumstance, every day of your life. No matter what the situation, you choose your reaction, assigning meaning and value to an event.

We all view the world through individual filters, which influence the interpretations we give events, how we respond, and how we are responded to. Be aware of the factors that influence the way you see the world, so you can compensate for them and react against them. If you continue to view the world through a filter created by past events, then you are allowing your past to control and dictate both your present and your future.

Filters are made up of fixed beliefs, negative ideas that have become entrenched in your thinking. They are dangerous because if you treat them as fact, you will not seek, receive or process new information, which undermines your plans for change. If you "shake up" your belief system by challenging these views and testing their validity, the freshness of your perspective can be startling.

From his website, it's quite an empowering thought. When this life strategy is applied, there really isn't much is impossible.

Enlightenment of the day.

Tentative wishlist for 2006

Wow another year... time for the list again.
Well let see there are few stables already on my before 30 one. I will just consolidate all and see what I have here:

• go to Europe
• drive a convertible
• have a puppy
• be comfortable in my own skin

Carried forwarded from last year's resolution:

• learn 1 new sport per year
• go to a new place never been per year

Hope I can check off most for this year.
