Aftermath.....Literally

Well, trials are finally over with a really outlandish end to it. A crescendo so loud that it'll shake the very foundations of trustworthiness. You all know what I'm talking about. Though it may have benefited many Form 5's at present, I'm not sure if the bigger picture is getting impaled into their brains yet. True, you may obtain glory dishonourably and not feel guilty about it. However, think in this context: "How long are you going to keep it up?"
You may be able to do it once but you may not be so lucky the second time. I'm not trying to be your nanny here but for your consideration, try not to do it.

There is no shame in not succeeding. The very foundation of success is derived from failure. Great people who went down in history are many. And they succeeded from failure. For example:

Adolf Hitler - Got gassed in World War 1. Was a total loser. Prospered to be one of the greatest (psychotic)leaders in history. Propelled to success, infamy and finally utter destruction.

J. Walther Christie - Was a factory worker. The butt of every joke. Invented the Christie Suspension which was the guideline for all tank suspensions. In short, the father of all suspensions.

Hiram S. Maxim - A rival inventor to Thomas Edison. The inventor of the very first light bulb (credit stolen by Edison). Never credited for anything until his greatest invention. The Maxim machine gun. The very first machine gun.

and many others.....

So what if you are looked down upon. I know what it feels like. But by failing, it actually inspires us to succeed. Think about it, if you've been stepped on before, would you just remain there or would you force your way out of it, to break away, to achieve things, others can only dream of achieving. The choice is yours ladies and gentlemen. Either live for something or die for nothing.

That aside, my day went pretty well. I came home, itching to use the computer for the whole day or something close to that. But I ended up doing Add. Maths. Yes, I've taken the initiative to "re-sit" my Add. Maths. trial paper. Surprisingly, it wasn't as difficult as I first expected it to be. Either I'm bloody lucky or God just made it all so clear. XD!

Do you remember the saying that children can't wait to be adults? Well, as time passes, we just don't really like to live up to that dream anymore. It's just time to move on I guess. With time as fine as a strand of hair, there's just no time to stop and stare. All the best in life ladies and gentlemen. Godspeed....



Doodles of confusion.....

Review–Pentahotel Hong Kong (Kowloon)

This is my first time doing this sort of a review so please bear with me and do give me your most honest feedback (should there be any). During my recent trip to Hong Kong, I was staying in a rather unique boutique hotel with a superb concept. An Overview
Pentahotel Hong Kong (Kowloon) is situated in an area known as Diamond Hill in Kowloon, the price for the night is significantly cheaper than the hotels on the main island of Hong Kong. Situated inconspicuously among factory and warehouses, privacy and peace are essential guarantees of this hotel.  The hotel boasts a towering 32-floors in height and a total of 695 guest rooms. Despite the building being 32 floors high, there are 6 elevators ensuring that no one has to wait more than a minute before getting an elevator. Accompanying facilities include a convenience store, recreation room, a cafe, a pizza bar and conference facilities. Further details will be listed at the end of the review.First Impressions

23rd Birthday @ Thirty8, Grand Hyatt

I may be about 2 months too late but I do want to share about a truly amazing birthday surprise. As my 23rd birthday came to view, I noticed my dear girlfriend was busy on the phone. I never really gave it much thought about what she was doing (perhaps ordering some girls stuff via the telephone?). However, I didn't know she was planning a surprise for my birthday. 

On the day itself, she dressed herself up really splendidly. I on the other hand managed to put on a shirt and a pair of jeans (the male effort of dressing up splendidly). She set the GPS for me and I just followed it all the way until we found ourselves at the entrance of the Grand Hyatt @ Kuala Lumpur. Mouth left ajar, I began to question what did she do (I'm a frugal person so places like the Grand Hyatt would rarely appear on my list). 
Entering the lift, we went up to the 38th floor and that was when I realised that there was such a restaurant called Thirty8. Unbeknownst to the general people like you and me, th…

Singapore Airline Training and Outing @ Parkroyal Penang

Hello again, dear readers. As you might have already known, I am currently a Senior Marketing Executive for Singapore Airlines Limited. It has been already 7 months since I've joined Singapore Airlines. Anyway, like all major corporations, there will always be either an annual dinner or outing. In the case of Singapore Airlines Limited, for the year 2015, we chose Penang as the spot to have our annual staff outing and dinner.

DAY 1: HEADING THERE

The day started early. By early, I mean waking up at 0530 hours to head to office (pickup point). Before heading there, we dropped by to fetch my colleague Douglas. What was interesting to know was that the roads at that hour were completely empty. It is eerie to know that the roads that I go through daily, fighting off traffic was now nothing more than a desolate scene out of the walking dead. Anyway, enough thoughts. When we got to the office, we had a light breakfast at the mamak downstairs. After "suffing" ourselves, we head…
