Write-up for KL Lifestyle March 2013 | No comments:

When I was working in Werner's Group, one of my job responsibility was to write press release for the restaurants and bars.

So somewhere in February, I wanted to promote Bier Bar KL so badly that I called up one the editor of KL Lifestyle to have Bier Bar KL featured in their magazine. And I was delighted when I was told that they are going to feature about bars in KL city. But the downside is, I have to do the write up myself. And as we have three bars under our wing, I had to do three write ups within a day as the deadline is three days away.

There was a point when my mind went totally blank and I ended up staring at my computer screen for hours and yet couldn't come up with anything. But thanks to the invention of DUBSTEPS, I finished all three in an hour,

And oh boy, I was super proud of myself when I saw them published in their March's issue. To me, it was another milestone achieved and I will definitely have this added to my resume.

Short Films Screening By Filmmakers Anonymous | No comments:

From young, I've always been skeptical about films and movies produced by our local film makers. But ever since I've started to watch short films produced by our local Youtubers, they proved me wrong. They showed me that Malaysians are creative and can do really well in film industry.

So I was very excited when I saw FA18 happening in Palate Palette (which also happens to be one of my absolute favorite bar in Changkat Bukit Bintang).

Briefly, Filmmakers Anonymous (FA), is a non-profit organization in Malaysia that provide a platform for local film makers to have their work exposed to more people. Once every two to three months, FA will organized an event, where they screen a compilation of shorts sent to them.

The lovely organizer welcoming the guests

And on 19th of March, we were fortunate to catch a total 8 short films. 

1) Fragments 
2) Masturbasi O (I cracked my head trying to figure out what it was about but I gave up after 2 minutes because it was simply too deep to understand) 
3) How To Sell? 
4) Langad Di Odu (A very touching story about an elderly who is longing for her daughter, who ran away from home to be with her lover)
5) Share (Short about the current generation's addiction to the mobile phone and Social Media platforms)
6) Kopi Dan  Dia (One of my favorite)
7) 3075:My Earth
8) Man And Woman (Almost fell asleep watching this)

I would say that, some were interesting, some were intriguing, and sorry to say this, but one or two were really meh~  

The director of "Kopi Dan Dia" and "Share"
One of my favorite would be "Kopi Dan Dia", which is a story about a man who had to choose between his wife and his homosexual lover. 

And after the screening, the director was invited to come up for a short Q&A session. And I was totally in awed to know that it took them almost a day just to shoot a cup of coffee.

Here's a short teaser for "Kopi Dan Dia".

I enjoyed the night, except I was sitting right behind a group of heavy smokers. And it was unfortunate that I just had my hair washed before stepping out and my hair smell so bad when I reached home. But I really look forward for FA19, which hopefully will happen soon.

So it you are an inspiring film maker who would love to share your shorts with more people, you may contact Filmmakers Anonymous at filmaholic(at)gmail(dot)com.

And if you would love to attend the screenings or would love to know more about FA, you may check out their Facebook at

What Is Love? | No comments:

Love is a feeling so strong where you realized that you would do anything. Risked anything. And you wouldn't mind being labeled as stupid or any other horrendous names because deep inside, as long as this person is happy, you are happy. For love is blind, you will do things that others would deem unworthy but then again, no one else's opinion mattered.

When you love someone, you will think of him/her all the time. When you wake up, when you are at work, when you are having dinner, before you go to sleep and when you are sleeping. Memories of the good times that you ever had together will kept refreshing itself in your mind. Making you laugh and had tears running down at the same time because you missed the time spent together very much.

When you love someone, you will wanna see him/her everyday. No matter how much hassle you have to put yourself through just to see him/her, for you know, it's worth it.

A message from him/her is what it's needed to light up your day.

When you love someone, you would do anything to support him/her through good times and bad times, and expect nothing in returns.

And when you love someone, even if the feelings are not mutual, you will still feel like the happiest person in the world because all you ever wanted is to cherish what you have now.

"Love is when the other person's happiness is more important than your own." - H.Jackson Brown Jr

Life Lessons | No comments:

In this mere three months, I've learnt so much about life than I had for the past few years.

I'm pretty much a very simple minded person, although with an attitude, I always wear my heart on my sleeves.

Words I said, despite most of the time being very crude and hurtful are usually spoken from my heart. I sometimes have to put up a mask, especially to my superior because you can't go up to your boss and ask him to go F himself no matter how pissed you are, well unless, you are prepared to leave.

Things that I do, are never done with an ulterior motives. I do my best to help out because I feel that it is a nice thing to do. I will run the extra mile for my friends because I feel that they deserved it. Maybe the only time when I did something with a motive was when I was hoping for an increment and promotion in my job. But other than that, there were never any hidden agendas. And people around me knew it very well.

Until recently.

I was pretty much in shocked to find out that there are people out there, where every moves and every speech had a hidden motive. And it pretty much scared the shit outta me. Because you never knew that the person you thought is your friend might be the one doing the backstabbing behind you. Or someone who is helping you is actually trying to sabotage you. Or someone you trusted with your life is actually taking advantage of you for their own benefits. You will never know.

So lessons that I learnt from all these are:

a) Never to trust someone that you've just met wholeheartedly because you might end up in so much disappointment

b) Never login to any of your personal sites and instant messages with your company's gadgets.

c) Never underestimate a person's capabilities.

d) Never get attached to someone so easily especially when you only known this person for a short period of time.

Like I said on my Facebook post, it saddened me that I had only learnt all this now when I had been working for so long. But like they said, it is better late than never.

And now it's time to move on to another chapter of life. Hopefully less challenging and dramatic as the past three months.
