Who chooseth me must give and hazard all he hath

Work or Family?

*Click square photo for direct link to Instagram/Facebook Wonder what makes the free spirit like me decided to settled down in a few hours just by chatting? The answer is passion & opportunity. Found my Human Pet friend in Facebook via Don Chan’s status comment & decided to say hi. I end up getting a job. Most important helping a friend with his business & give back to community.

Officially Attached!

Le boss was kind enough to check my new place & got a new computer laptop when my tablet charger MIA. He disagree about “ordinary job” since I’ll will be working with the coolest company! LOL He wouldn’t allow anyone to tell me that I’m unlucky. When I starting to accept the rough journey I had in life, guess God want me to not give up on hope & continue to have faith in success. I take it that I’m success by being happy when it was defined differently to most out there :p

First Day Celebration

Goodbye to 1st 6 months of 2014. I’m entering the 2nd half of the year with my first day @ work. Not only that, it is also 1st day for Swimin12 to operate in the new location. I may work for a young company but entering a huge family of 26 @ PJ Palms Sports Center is something I’m looking forward to with the new management. If you noticed, I’ve chopped off my signature long nails to a natural french for work :D

 

Humble Beginning

Besides getting to know my new family in KL, EJ’s student was kind enough to special deliver homemade pineapple tart “Ong Lai” to wish boss a prosperous 1st day. Thanks boss for the mini celebration via The Wall Street Sports Bar. Guys can chillax there during World Cup period with the mega screen. Else you can ask me to accompany you to dine/swim when you decided to drop by for a visit anytime from 8am till 10pm.

P/S: New housemate happens to work @ Klang area LOL can arrange pick up for some of my stuff over ^_^

Out off Mother Nature Into Haze Zone

*Click square photo for direct link to Instagram

I had an awesome June. I thank God for making me stay a little longer than I originally planned (thanks to the sky rocket price since mid May for over a month). MAS flight is surprisingly cheaper than Air Asia & Malindo but brunch was a huge disappointing for someone who flies with them for most of my life. Uncle next to me was surprised to see the plane is full, tomorrow is the start of fasting month (Bulan Ramadan).

 

Farewell Mountain + Sea View

Travel on short noticed has been my trend for the past 18 months. Goodbye to my YOLO life as this trip will lead me to my next full time job. This is managed to packed a lot of goodies for friends in KL with little gifts from Mulu, Kudat & Sandakan (purchased @ Inanam). I was instantly home sick when I found out KL & Klang had been attacked by the evil HAZE again :(

 

Redmi???

Matt managed to get his hands on Mi1-S AP version. But he’s kinna upset with the fact that getting a 2 years warranty from phone shop cannot win the cheaper rates provided by Mi official website. Mi1-S & Redmi Note will be available in Malaysia & Singapore next month onwards. Hopefully I got enough to get a new phone with my 1st pay cheque hehehe

P/S: Love my future stay & working place

FIFA World Cup 2014: Germany VS Portugal

*Click square photo for direct link to Facebook

Hey, I bet Germany fans are all happy that #13 Thomas Muller scored 3 goals. It’s a bitter moment for Portugal fans or those who bet on Ronaldo :p Just because you got a star player doesn’t mean you got a team player!

 

Deutscher Fußball-Bund

Surprisingly the happy moment didn’t last long as I start to morn over my late mixed German grandmother. These 2 nights I’ve been seriously having insomnia reflecting how I have been isolated myself from many joyful celebration/people. Guess I’m not ready to be the usual bubbly me till the end of 100 days…

P/S: Still feel bad that I missed out Synergy‘s showcase on Father’s Day

Press Conference: KK Jazz Fest

*Click square photo for direct link to Instagram/Facebook After late lunch with Ko-An, we rushed to Sutera Harbour Marina for a Kota Kinabalu Jazz Festival press conference. There’s a brief introduction from all performing artist and before the end of the conference we had a preview by Mezzotono from Italy. Check the short clip HERE

 

Hey Mumbo, Mumbo Italiano

I’m looking forward to this year’s performances after viewing the performing list. My favourite KK Jaz Fest is still the first year @ Jesselton Point even with the tight budget. I skipped a few years during my time in Singapore & I was a little disappointed with the performances selection the previous 2 years. I have high hope in this year’s show, hopefully it won’t let me down *fingers crossed*

 

8th KK Jazz Fest Family Portrait

How can you start a music festival without a group photo? Ahahaha I bet the organizing team has been working hard for these weekends. Let the show begin, but first…

 

Daphne iKing is BACK!

Daphne iKing is a journalist, TV host, emcee, actress, columnist, loving wife & mother. This 2003 Unduk Ngadau (Sabahan) winner is back in town to host this year’s KK Jazz Fest. According to her Instagram Iman puked on her but I guess her sunshine smile & sea breeze @ Sutera Harbour makes us all just want to jump on her for some photo without noticing any flaws on her.

 

8th Kota Kinabalu Jazz Festival

I was a little tired after being out whole day but it won’t stop me from enjoying the night. Thank you KK Jazz Festival for the lovely treat after filling my feedback. Who doesn’t love a cold ice cream while enjoying some awesome jazz performances? ^_^ Last but not least photo bomb my fellow Carlsberg Diamond Idol judges LOL

 

Carlsberg Diamond Idol Judges

Kian Kok School Big Band & Fingerstyle are fresh but there’s a lot of potential in all these youngsters. I was very impressed with SIA Goofy especially their male singer, smoking hot vocal I could say. Rozelle Marie has a sensational power vocal that I wish I had, The Season 4 will prove to you that they had more salt than you had rice, Jerome Rico & Mara Viola are the power duo from Phillipines. Seriously I donno what Phillipines have been eating but all the Phillipino entertainers I’ve known are so good in what they are doing, maybe they are born to do it, maybe it’s Maybelline? Sumandak Joan Jim Quintet made a grand opening behind her strings, Yuta Tanaka makes me jelly with Wonderful Tonight & last but not least Harry Toledo Cover that puts us on our feet that we refused to leave. You want more? Come back tonight 7pm til midnight for the finale…

P/S: Maggie goreng for supper with the Uncles :p

Press Conference: Sunset Music Fest

*Click square photo for direct link to Instagram

When one day closed another opens…While feeling sad that I have to give up a singing opportunity in KL this weekend due to 1 no payment 1 air ticket went sky rocket over RM700, God is good all the time :)

 

Up Close with Local Artists

If you’re surprised to see me today, I didn’t appear as blogger but you will know soon. Every year, Sunset Music Fest was held at the Northen most Tip of Borneo, Kudat. This year it will be held outdoot (as usual) at Tanjung Simpang Mengayau, which means the “lingering junction”.

 

Refreshment by Le Meredian Kota Kinabalu

I was privileged to have the opportunity to dine & interact up close & personal with some of the local artists as I personally know some of the performers. Fingerstyle, Gee Mojina, Joe Balanjiu Jr, Gedion Hilarius, Rhythm of Borneo & Den Bisa (according to previous photo above) are very friendly & humble. We shared some of our journey in some of the music festival & I’m looking forward for their performances next weekends.

 

Gedian Hilarius

It’s great to catch up with Gee & Gedian. I managed to give Gedian a crash course in how to selfie & avoid the mirror effect by returning to gallery before posting up the photo. I’m very excited because this will be my first trip to Sunset Music Fest with so many friends. Tickets for Sunset Music Fest is available for RM50/day or RM80 for 2 days (20-21 June 2014). You can log on to their WEBPAGE for more info.

P/S: My brain will be very useful for the next 1 week instead of slacking at home waiting for air ticket to drop down to normal rates
