Live Curious

This may be at least half a year old but somehow or rather, it has a really meaningful message behind it. The first time I saw this was when Dr. Sia talked about it at the recent Youth Empowerment Camp. That was when I realised it was actually a National Geographic advertisement and everyone know NatGeo is famous for developing the most knowledgeable and inspiring promotional videos for their programme.

This, I  have to say is one of the most inspiring. Imagine tackling the most important aspect of humans but yet the most unnoticeable aspect: The Magnificent Human Mind.

We humans have always been the most intelligent life forms on planet Earth and our achievements are not something to be sneered at either. All of that comes from the 5 wives and 1 husband all humans have: What? Where? When? Why? Who? How?

It is the curiosity of humans which have boosted the human species to the point of supremacy, able to conquer anything as long as we are determined to do so. From the deepest oceans to the highest mountains, to innovating life and exploring the final frontier. All of the great moments achieved by man is a result of wanting to know more, wanting to explore deeper, move faster and go further than any living organism has gone before.

Now, without further ado, allow me to present the ‘If’ anthem, NatGeo’s way of celebrating human being’s persistence to wanting to learn more:

If you are, you breathe.
If you breathe, you talk.
If you talk, you ask.
If you ask you think.
If you think, you search.
If you search, you experience.
If you experience, you learn.
If you learn, you grow.
If you grow, you wish.
If you wish, you find.
If you find, you doubt.
If you doubt, you question.
If you question, you understand
If you understand, you know.
If you know, you want to know more.
If you want to know more, you are alive

I hope this video has been able inspire you to achieve greater heights and to push yourself beyond your limits to be better and better. With that said, I wish you, my dear readers, all the best in all of your future undertakings and challenges. Godspeed

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

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.


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…

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…
