“Weak eyes are fondest of glittering objects.” [Thomas Carlyle]
In a journey that spans almost half a century, I’ve learnt that to level up, you got to include people who are motivated, hungry and importantly, willing to put in the work in your circle. But not everyone can walk the talk.
You’ll have sleepless nights, lose some friends - people you really cared for and people you thought cared at what you were trying to achieve. In solitude you’ll find strength.
If you’re always having to be the bigger person, maybe don’t be around so many little people. Never seek revenge, rotten fruit will fall by itself. Somebody is mad at you right now because you picked peace over drama and distance over disrespect.
Until it’s my turn, I will clap for others. It’s that simple.

Kau ingat ko punya 🎶🎶 terror.
I was enlisted into the 1st Commando Battalion. I am a Mat.
Upon reflection, I love the experience. I am glad to be meeting legends. I made lifelong brothers. Perhaps I was not as kilat during NS as many of the solid brothers there, but I know where I stood to be exceptional. I am still striving to improve myself. And these guys are my constant inspiration to strive for the best at what life throws at me.

Basically, I’ll be speaking about how Asian filmmakers these days (aka someone like moi) are getting woke, lah. We are reclaiming our voices and identities into our films - deconstructing the film representions of Malay/Asians by the Ang Mohs.
