Giddy up to the new year!

Well kung hei fat choi to everyone! Today is officially the first day of the Chinese New Year!
It's the one time of the year I can officially shut down completely along with the rest of Hong Kong. It does feel good to just have a day when I'm not on super alert.

The one thing I like about Chinese New Year is it gives you a 2nd chance at this whole new year thing. 1 Jan always has you kicking off to a new year and a new set of resolutions. Then CNY lets you review those and pick up where it's not been working out.

I recently came across an awesome quote/saying:
Awesome! At least when I read it, it empowered me and reminded me of the mindset you need to be in for victory. And this year being the year of the horse, I'm guessing everyone's got that spirit to charge forward.
Heck, I've already been lucky enough to work with the Hong Kong Jockey Club during their Happy Wednesday race nights in a booth called Be a Rapper
It was basically based on the funny rap song I wrote for Jockey Club in Cantonese

 and English:
(yes I realize I was wearing 2 caps and being silly in the video. That was the point ;))
I have to say, it was actually a heck of a lot of fun playing the game with people. Now I admit, I'm no super star rapper, but it definitely was fun watching people's expressions when I'd demonstrate the rap song and they'd try it for the first time ahaha. I even got to rap with an old man every week! He was so lively!
Reminded me that at the end of the day, it's your mentality that determines your vitality.

Overall January 2014 has been a crazy month for me, I've literally seen myself go from being on top of my game, to completely drowning in work to coming right back up again. It's been a serious cycle of intense waves.

And to that, I wish everyone great health and vitality in this year of the Horse!

Happy Chinese New Year, Vivek!
I came across the clips of your stand-up comedy on YouTube. Clean jokes - I hope you keep it that way. God have blessed you with many gifts and I pray that you will use them wisely. All the best.

Happy Chinese New Year to you too! I'm happy to hear you like my sense of humor. Yes I like clean humor as well, it's just a personal style really... not trying to be an angel or anything.

Have a great year ahead!
