Inside out

Happiness doesn't depend on any external conditions, it is governed by our mental attitude
-- Dale Carnegie

Man I love that guy. Well, mostly because it's always refreshing to read a quote here and there to re-calibrate your mindset when you see a tough road ahead or a situation that should be better than it currently is.
The good news is, I finally had a full weekend to just catch-up on, where I wasn't sprinting through work or trying to get something done before a deadline.
However, it seems that somehow the world loves to keep opening another door the moment I manage to close one. Or perhaps it's just my need to write everything down in my to do list and my brain can constantly come up with things to keep myself busy. For example, when I had some extra time, my brain suddenly thought "hey, your mobile phone seems to be running really, really slow, perhaps it'd be a good idea to format it to see if its a hardware problem or just some odd software problem" and into my to do list it goes. Sure there is no deadline there, but it's a task. And after being disciplined to never (well almost never) delete something from my to do list until it's finished, or it's out-dated or irrelevant, it's very hard for me to honestly say "you know what, I don't need to do this" and delete the item from there. Talk about over-disciplining your workflow.

Well I recently was featured in an RTHK show called Hong Kong, My Home and I must say, I am super, duper impressed with the quality of the outcome. Seriously, RTHK never ever fails me. I don't think I can embed the video so here is the link: http://programme.rthk.hk/rthk/tv/programme.php?name=tv%2Fminoritiesinhk&d=2014-07-30&p=6316&e=270325&m=episode
It's in Cantonese though :P

So my comedy career has taken another step up as I just returned from Kuala Lumpur where I headlined a weekend of gigs at the newly opened Crackhouse Comedy Club! It felt so cool to fly down on Wed, do an improv night, then shows on Thur, Fri and Sat! Then fly out on Sunday. The biggest thing I learned is that food in Malaysia is dirt cheap, and super, duper unhealthy! Ahaha oh man, the amount of sugar and oil I had was ridiculous...

...but oh so tasty and worth it!

The turn out was great and we're hoping to bring Cantonese down there, that'll be a killer idea and fingers crossed super attractive! :)
Anyway, let's see what the next 10 days have in store first.
