Talent is never enough

Here's a must-read for all you talented people out there. I believe everyone is talented in something whether it's music, sports or photography just that you haven't discovered it yet.

During my semester break (by the way I'm having my semester break now), I read Talent Is Never Enough by John C. Maxwell.

In this book you'll realize that talent alone is never enough, to go far, you'll need to be a talent plus person. Here's the formula to be a talent plus person.

Belief + Passion + Initiative + Focus + Preparation + Practice + Perseverance + Courage + Teachability + Character + Relationships + Responsibility + Teamwork = Talent plus person

Reading Breaking Dawn,

Man in the Mirror

I like Wang Leehom's version of Man in the Mirror. Originally sang by the late King of Pop, Michael Jackson. I like his interpretation of the song and the video he put together. Whenever I listen to him singing this song, I somehow just want to listen to it. No multitasking. I hope you get what I mean.

I think he did justice to this song. Did not massacre it. I hope he includes this song in his next album.

Wang Leehom's Man in the Mirror.

By the way, this is my favourite Michael Jackson song,

Shopping whole day yesterday

Was out the whole day yesterday.

During the day I went to Pavilion and KLCC. Nothing much to do in Pavilion, for me, because I don't really buy high end, designer stuff. Did more shopping in KLCC. Had lunch in Manhattan Fish Market. I ordered Fish and chips which was enough to last me till dinner. For drinks, I had espresso which I didn't really like.

Bought some t-shirts from Giordano. Now my style for t-shirts are slogan/statement tees. It keeps changing according to my taste. Saw a bag that I like in Parkson, will it in KIV, you know in case I really need it few months later or next year. Saw Leehom's Music Man DVD in stores. There's a special limited edition and also a normal one. The special edition comes with a Leehom figurine for RM109.90. The normal DVD is at RM69.90. I checked the price at a shop in 1 Utama, it's the same price there. Went for Music Man concert few months ago, enjoyed the concert, would be good if I could watch it close-up because my seat was quite a distance from the stage and I had to watch from the screen in front.

Was at 1 Utama until it closed. Closing time was pretty early, it's not even 10pm yet and shops are already switching off the lights and everything. Just did window shopping there.

Have a good day,

I just watched Up. Didn't get to watch it in 3D, but it's ok. I think this is the best movie I watched this year. Maybe the best Pixar movie yet. Enough said.

The list of company for practical training is available on e-learning already, advanced diploma friends, please take note.

I haven't decided which company to apply to yet. Still thinking.

Selamat Hari Raya,

The 8 Laws of Style

Not too long ago, I wrote on Victoria Beckham's 10 Style commandments. This time, also from the same magazine but different issue, Glamour November 2006, is some fashion advice from Michael Kors. In case you haven't heard of him. Michael Kors is a American fashion designer, judge on Project Runway and has his own label.

Here are his 8 laws of style which I think is still practical today as it was in 2006.
  1. "Try out your entire look in advance - not just your dress."
  2. "Edit down your wardrobe to what you really love and know looks good on you."
  3. "Quality doesn't have to be expensive. Things that are well designed come at every price 'honest'"
  4. "Shop at stores with liberal return policies."
  5. "Have a signature piece. It's the most classic way to look chic."
  6. "Get your clothes tailored."
  7. "Spend on the timeless basics you wear consistently; go cheap on the trendy stuff."
  8. "Be irreverent!"
Exams Over!

Still having exams

I'm sorry for not updating for a long time. Exam season now. Just had Financial Accounting paper yesterday, will be having my next 2 papers next week.

I like this new single "Mess of Me" by Switchfoot from their new album, Hello Hurricane which is not in stores yet. I'm not sure when it'll be available in Malaysia. The song is really cool.

Apple CEO Steve Jobs recently unveiled new ipods at an Apple event. I like the new ipod nana even though I haven't seen it yet. It comes with video camera and the price has been slashed, this means I can afford one soon without burning a hole in my pocket. Other than that, it has an FM radio that can be paused live, voice recorder and a built in pedometer. Read the rest of the article:

Can't wait to check out the new ipods,
