So Last Night I Had The Most Expensive Dumpling In My Life

Tuesday night was GMI Xmas Party night at the very very posh Circles Event Cafe at Shang. Playing host is your truly, late for the 630 call time and all.

I literally jumped out of the car as soon as I got to Basement 2 and darted to the Japanese room where everyone was -- except for me. Huffing and puffing I had to arrange everything (since I also was one of the two Christmas elves for physical arrangement) and put everything into place. My stress levels were shooting through the roof, my heart wanted to jump out of my chest and my guts felt like they were playing tag inside me.

After setting everything up, I finally managed to go around the buffet and get me some yummy buffet food. I got a nice piece from the steak carving, some pecans and hazelnuts, and a shy little dumpling from the Chinese table. I made my way back to the Japanese room and tried my best to down the little food I put on my plate. But all that stress won't let me. I felt gag-gy and the food won't go down well. All I was able to wrestle with down my throat was one lonely dumpling.

Just as I was about to run out to go get me more food, hopefully warm ones, I had to start the program. So all night, all I had was one lonely dumpling. And yeah, they paid X thousand pesos for my ticket to the buffet -- and all I had was one lonely dumpling. Most expensive dumpling ever.

There are a great many bad people in the world, and if you are not offending them, you must be bad yourself. Popularity is a sure sign that you are doing something wrong.
- Adrian Tan


Find that pursuit that will energise you, consume you, become an obsession. Each day, you must rise with a restless enthusiasm. If you don’t, you are working.

The way you're moving in your sleep
The way you look before you leap
The strange illusions that you keep
You don't know what I'm noticing

This Is The Purpose For My Existence

I am filled with both envy and awe. I was reading Francis Kong's November 30, 2010 article "What Motivates Artists" and as always, "whoah moment" courtesy of Mr. Kong. He ended the article with the single most certain statement that made me say to myself, "So this kind of certainty IS possible."

Reading this kind of reignited the fire of belief in me. I pray with all my heart I see that day I will utter this very same statement.

I have been called to do what I do. This is the purpose for my existence. My Creator has blessed me with this talent and He has given me the responsibility to use the same in inspiring people. The responsibility is heavy, the work is never done, the efforts to improve is demanding but the fulfillment and joy is there.
(Kong, 2010)
