I should stop judging myself purely based on what other people think or what their judgement is.

I should be happy as I am and judge myself based on my own standards, while still valueing other people's opinions and feedback.

Reasons why I do what I do [25 Oct 2011|07:55pm]
  1.  I love it.
  2. There are no rules or restraints, I'm free to express myself in any way I choose.
  3. I love music.
  4. It lets me show people how I feel inside, through actions rather than words.
  5. It doesn't matter what other people think of it, what matters is what I think of it.
  6. It keeps me in shape and good health.
  7. It's free.
  8. It brings people together in ways nothing else can do.
  9. You can never stop learning about it, there's always something new to discover.
  10. It makes other people happy when they see me do what I love.

This is the first Valentine's Day in a long, long time where I don't have anyone to celebrate with. For some reason, I'm starting to feel a little lonely...

On the other hand, it's also the weirdest Chinese New Year I've ever had...

Reading FMA really reminded me of something.

If you want something in life, you have to give up something in return. The more you want it, the more you have to give up.

Equivalent trade.

The 2 things that changed my life [07 Jan 2010|02:46am]
1. Cosplay:

I started cosplaying in like, 2003 year end. Back in the good old days, where everyone knew everyone. It was just a for fun thing for me, I got talked into it by my childhood friend, so I was thinking, why not? Over the years I realised that cosplay made me more of a social butterfly. I was a real introvert as a kid, that's mostly because of my parents, you know the whole, "Children should be seen, not heard" philosophy. I really got to open up and make tons of new friends through cosplay. Lots of them became some of my closest friends, without whom I think life would be alot less fun and meaningful. Right now I'm not really cospalying as seriously as some of them, mostly due to financial reasons, along with other commitments, but that doesn't break the bond of friendship we have. I've had alot of fun times, and have learnt so much about people and life. I believe cosplay will offer alot more wonderful experiences in the years to come. ^^

2. Dance:

I was inspired to dance by Michael Jackson, if not for him, I wouldn't be dancing. I started off with abit of hiphop with some friends, then in poly, I met a senior who was a ballroom instructor and asked me to be her partner. So in a way, my first serious dance training started off with ballroom, going to perform and join competitions and such. I really had a blast, and met alot of really nice people, but after my partner had to migrate, I stopped. I don't know why I never went to find another partner, but I didn't. I went back to hiphop again for about a year or so, but I didn't take it seriously. I guess I lost the drive to dance for awhile. Until I saw popping for the first time, and that made me go "WOW". And so now, my main focus is popping. What did dance teach me?

1. Be true to yourself, don't try to be someone else, it's a total waste of the wonderful person that you truely are.
2. Think outside the box, don't be so narrowminded.
3. Sometimes, it's best just not to think so much.
4. If you want something, you gotta work for it, nobody's gonna hand it to you on a silver platter.
5. The ONLY true shortcut in life: Continuous hard work.
6. Whatever you do in life, be happy.
7. When people are passionate about something, they can work miracles.

After so many years, I realise that dancing is the one true thing that I really want to do for my entire life, whether full time or part time. I thank all my friends who show me support and I'm gonna continue working hard. =3

Hmmmm... [15 Dec 2009|11:13pm]
I guess most of my friends have guessed this by now, but I've never really said it out loud.

Dance is what I want to spend my life doing, it's what I'm willing to pour my heart and soul into. I would not give up dance for anything, unless I can't even feed my family, even so, I'd rather starve myself and dance so that my parents could have my share.

I will never give it up, and I'm gonna aim big.

With all the technology, video games and computers that kids have these days. I'm afraid that there will come a time when you give a kid a book or a basketball, and he won't know what to do with it...

This has been a really fucked up year for me, ever since the middle of this year, I've been put on a emotional and mental roller coaster ride. Simple to say, I've been made use of, abused, tossed aside.

I spent the entire day and night hating, feeling bitter, and basically tempted to go on a rampage. And then I came accross this video.



I guess, at the end of the day, I should just be happy to be alive. People have done wrong to me, but I guess if they're sorry about it, I should just let it go, and if they're not, fuck them. I still have so much I want to do in my life.

On the lighter side of life [28 Sep 2009|08:00pm]
For those of you who remember my "Prince of Tennis in Hokkien" Project several years back, know that I've undertaken a new project for myself.

I am going to translate this entire video into hokkien:

My thoughts during these past weeks [28 Sep 2009|02:53pm]
1. I feel really sad when people do not want to, or are too lazy to think for themselves. Many people do not even have that privilege, and many people I know just do not want to use this wonderful gift we are given, such a pity.

2. Many of the people who complain that life sucks, and life is boring, are doing nothing but staying at home the whole day, not wanting to go out and do something with the time that they are given. Come to think of it, this actually applies to everyone I know who complains that life is boring.

3. I've lost respect for alot of people I know. I do not like dishonesty and hypocracy. I've seen both in some people.

4. People say that happy endings do not exist in real life, that's because they're too lazy to work for it. Happy endings do exist in real life, the only difference compared to a fairy tale, is that in real life, you have to work, suffer, and earn your happy ending.

5. I should learn not to trust what people say so easily, some people can change their opinions and beliefs at the drop of a hat whenever it suits them.

6. The definition of impossible: "Lack of persistance and patience."

7. The secret to maintaining your youth: "Spend time doing what you love, and enjoy it."

8. I shouldn't judge a person too strongly based on my first impression of them.

9. I should learn to take life easy sometimes, and not push myself too hard, many people have been saying that I put too much pressure on myself, only now do I realise that it's true.

The irony of life [02 Sep 2009|04:31pm]
It's kinda funny actually, Fear is what usually helps us to stay alive.

Yet, Courage is what helps us find meaning in life.
