We were Soldiers

  Here’s my review and insights on the movie “We were soldiers”… It’s based on a true story of heroism and courage that took place in the Vietnam War. It started with narration on how does one tell a story? Which angle of the story? Where does the story begin? It’s also amazing that Colonel Hal […]

HOME

Singapore has changed so much the last 2 decades. In a span of 20 years, we see places like Marina Bay blossoming into a garden. This is what our founding father – Mr. Lee Kuan Yew envisioned – to have a “City in the Gardens”. With the population reaching more than 5 million, and a […]

Remembrance

The last few days have been one of the most difficult and unique journeys in my life. When my friend Lennie approached me to ask if I could help her family, I had some reservations. How does one go about doing a video about grief? How much will this affect my life? Will the friends […]

Connecting Value

Having had my first attempt at public speaking at TEDxYouth in Singapore a few months back made me realized that there was still so much out there that I do not know. It was surreal and yet exciting. Exciting because I was given the opportunity to share my passion with a new generation of youths, […]

Wicked of Oz

Having loved the magical worlds of Narnia and Middle-Earth; I was spellbound by the untold story of the witches of Oz. The reason I was changed when I met Elphaba was the fact that it was original and very close to the human truth – that all things is not what it seems. Love is […]

Waking up

There are some things that experience a lone cannot express. If our creative work gets too comfortable… it is probably time to shake us up again. The function of creativity goes beyond concepts. If we walk across the same room with four different visualizations, the perception of that room is different. Our interpretation, intuition, cognition […]

Remember

Does anyone remember? Really… do you?? Who remembers what each of us said? Words from the past sometimes wound the future Will time make us forget those tender moments? Where are the places we walked together? Who remembers those long walks? Deep within we know that in the end, time and truth collides As the […]

A long journey of sleepless nights As I wait for the moon and finding my dreams The wind blows ceaselessly, yet I’m not tired… In the midst of pursued perfection for a destination yet unknown.

Message in a bottle

How long must I wait for love? Will distance make love drift away? Is being out of sight really out of mind? Will love & trust ever sway? Where can I find that happy trail again? Does it matter how many miles apart we lay? Is staying the distance make it better? Or counting the […]
