Lift Your Spirits

There was a big hit show in the UK called Britain's Got Talent. It has unassuming people from all walks of life auditioning to a live audience. The final winner was a mobile phone sales guy called Paul Potts. You would never pick him for someone who looks like an entertainer. He has below average looks, a bit chubby, lack self-confidence and certainly does not look the part. Click on the youtube video on his audition, watch the judges faces when he says he was going to sing opera. Paul will lift your spirits to the heavens. A most unlikely thing will happen. Talent surpasses all things superficial. The best aria sung to perfection by the most unlikely guy. Tears will flow and they are good tears.

Besides Paul, the candidate who will also lift your spirits effortlessly is Connie Talbot (also competed in the same show). She is 6 and she is heavenly. She picked the right song for an angel to sing. A song of hope from a voice of innocence and purity. Her voice is effortless and ethereal. Some things are just beyond dreams!

If I didn't see the visuals, I'd have thought it was sung by one of the great tenors... Nessun Dorma & Potts rocks!

My Master, A National Treasure

REPOST:  Its been more than two years since I posted on my sifu. This is probably the most significant posting I had done thus far that does not involve business or politics. My circle of close friends and business colleagues have benefited significantly from his treatment.


My Master, Dr. Law Chin Han (from my iPhone)

Where shall I start? OK, just based on real life experiences of those who are close to me. The entire Tong family (Bukit Kiara Properties) absolutely swear that he is the master of masters when it comes to acupuncture (and dentistry as well). To me, you can probably find many great dentists, but to find a real Master in acupuncture, thats a whole different ballgame.


I am not big aficionado of Chinese medicine or acupuncture initially. I guess you have to go through the whole shebang to appreciate the real life changing effects from a master.


My business partner and very close friend went to him after 15 years of persistent gout problem, he will get his heavy attacks at least…

Passengers - Go Watch It

Passengers. Brilliant story telling. Visionary yet believable. Like Martian, only better. Space travel, science, romantic, desolation, philosophical, mortality n its devastation, spectacular imagery. Being human n humane. 9.7/10
