The Rains of Castemere

You hardly find true Lannister supporters...

Antagonize from Season 1 until Season 3. Until the truth slowly unfolds. Until perspectives take hold of us. Then it makes you realize, that the Lannisters are not noble. But what must be done to move forward, even when it means making choices that turn you against the whole world.

I used to loath the Lannisters. But when times are tough and when you are seeking for strength to ride over a rough storm, The Rains of Castemere reminds me that the best of myself has yet to come.

That I would have to brave through and emerge victorious.

Life In Singapore - 4 months and on

It has been 4 months calling Singapore my home for the time being.

They say the right moment to jump is when you are presented with the chance to do it but are still hesitant to do it. I admit I was hesitant when the chance to come over here came knocking on my door.

Although I have planned for quite some time my next step of career advancement and future planning, things don't always go through as planned. I am glad things somehow turned out well.

Of course it comes with some sacrifice. You are forced to leave behind some of the perks you enjoy back in Malaysia. I am fortunate to have adjusted seamlessly in the space of 1 month. The pace, the walks etc... It's not something you snap fingers and change instantly.

Materialism is of abundance when you are in a city like Singapore. A mirror image of New York, Hong Kong. Subconsciously, you start to chase for a materialistic life, which in healthy doses  is what I think makes life, life. If everyone are to be so zen, able to forsake materialism, we would all be farming around. living each day as it is. What would life be if there is nothing to chase and nothing to realize?

A visit back Malaysia every once in a month reminds me of what I am missing back home. But it is with my current capability I get to enjoy the best of both worlds. Which is something out of my reach with my previous earnings. Money is not everything. But money talks. As long as it does not speak louder than your mind and conscience, I think life now is quite good indeed for the time being.

It hasn't been an easy 4 months. Life could always be better. But I am glad that it is still alright for me. But definitely hoping for better things in life to come.

Because life should be, and would be, better as everyday comes

Life To The Fullest

Until what stage would you consider living live to the fullest?

Subjective.

It depends on your personal appetite and ambition.

For others it may be the simplest of all - contented with all you have.

For some, its yearning for more. Above of all materialism. Self-realization.

Better get your future sorted out Mr.Ong.

Time waits for no one....

Movies

I have never been able to watch a movie straight 2 hours using my laptop. Somewhere down the road back then, there was this thinking that binge watching was considered a waste of time. Yeah 2 hours is considered time wasting.

But the funny part is, I keep downloading movies. Which now I have lots of backlog. So many movies un-watched. And list of movies to watch gets piling up.

Don't get me wrong. I don't download anything under the sun. It's the good ones that I earmark and keep. And it has to be perfect.

And soundtracks! How can a movie ever be perfect without soundtracks!

I think the crude awakening is... Movies are not solely for pleasure and unwind. It enlightens. It motivates. It reminds you of your real life. Principles that you should adhere to, as you pass each day, walking towards that dream of yours that you, someday will achieve.

Sure yes other people can do a lot of other stuffs in 2 hours time. Strike a balance! When you feel crappy, watch a good movie to remind you that all is not lost! Then with that new found strength and belief, arm yourself and stand up to fight again.

Perhaps I should start watching more regularly then? :)

Life at Singapore - 3 months on, Achievements & Targets

Life is a game. If you can get serious with Pokemon GO, you should get serious with life.

Managed to be frugal in spending money on surviving. $400 inclusive of good weekend meals and coffee. Don't think I ever did that back then in Malaysia.

Debt is almost clear! Another 2 more months I will be debt free! Finally things can start getting serious!

Things to do in 1 month time:

Window Shopping/ Shopping. Working in a corporate world means looks matters. Shirts, pants, and yes baby a watch

Things to do in 2 months time:

DEBT FREE! 

Things to do in 3 months time and above:

1. Time to beef up the investment account. 
2. Save up to open up a Singapore trading account
3. Buy a watch. I mean a really good watch
4. Buy a pen. The one's that gets shown to the camera when you sign big big documents
5. Save up for a relatively good trip. If you wanna do a trip in bloody March 2017, I don't know how much you are going to save from December to February.

Yeah before that better get your budget done.

I shouldn't be writing my to-do lists at 12am.. Gosh so insincere

If You Never Try, Then You Never Know

Easier said than done.

And I think that spirit of mine will break me one of these days. Why am I so gung-ho?

Complex

This is by far the most complex feeling and emotions I have encountered.

Standing at a crossroad, unable to make up where to go. And afraid of taking either each option.

You can have 1000 theories on what to do. But in the end some of them contradict each other up and leaves you rooted...

Oh why have I landed myself in this crap...
