Passing this on from Wake Up tiger

Modifying this post from Wake Up tiger.
Have a read, then a think about the people most important in your life.

Try this quiz:
  • Name the 3 highest paid CEO's in Singapore.
  • Name the last 3 Australian Open winners.
  • Name the last 3 Singaporeans Of The Year.
  • Name the last 3 Academy Award winners for best actress.
  • Name 3 people who have won the Pulitzer prize.
How did you do? Not too well I imagine.

The point is, none of us remember the headliners of yesterday.
These are no second-rate achievers. They are the best in their fields. But the applause dies. Awards tarnish. Achievements are forgotten. Accolades and certificates are buried with their owners.

Here's another quiz.
See how you do on this one:

  • List 3 teachers who aided your journey through school.
  • Name 3 friends who have helped you through a difficult time.
  • Name 3 people who have taught you something worthwhile.
  • Think of 3 people who have made you feel appreciated and special.
  • Think of 3 people you enjoy spending time with.

You bet. And that's because the people who make a difference in your life are not
the ones with the most credentials, the most money, or the most awards. They are the ones that care, and who have made a difference to YOU.

So why not pass this post on to some of them ... :)


Quote of the day

To be nobody-but-yourself --
in a world which is doing its best night and day, to make you everybody else --
means to fight the hardest battle which any human being can fight;
and never stop fighting.

e. e. cummings

P.S. I love Wake Up Tiger

Embarking on an osaka journey

2007 Osaka [My Virgin Dance Trip]

2008 Osaka [2 weeks, a short break]

2009 Osaka [What's Next?]

Looking forward to the trip this time around. Spending a longer duration there and will be taking a lot of classes, re-training myself and taking this opportunity to think through my directions in this career i have stepped into.

Did i step into it unwittingly a few years back just because I did not want to work 9-5? Did i just step into it without thinking if it was suitable for me and if I would excel?
- Or -
did I step into it because I loved being on stage, in class and sharing what I love to do? If so, how do I shine in what I have chosen to do?

Met Ahmad 2 nights ago and he said to me, "you gotta kill it. you better kill it when you come back. I know you want it."

Yes, I guess I want it badly enough. To be running to Osaka now amidst the H1N1 and spending a bomb by staying 6 weeks. I consider this a trip to relax, to gain more experience, to become a better dancer and a better instructor. And most importantly, to gain back that desire, passion to keep learning and inspiring others to the best of my ability. Even if I may not be able to dance as well as others, as long as I dance better than myself each time.

I will attempt to share my journey with my readers and friends here during the 6 weeks in Japan. Someone once wrote this to me and it has stuck for a while. I like it and I shall end this post with the quote.

Cheer you up!

"Sony Ericsson is better than before.
You thought you've seen it all, we're here to show you more.
Twist Slide Press and Click,
Yari Does the trick.
With Satio and Aino,
Everything's on the go!"

"Goooooo, Sony!!!"

S.Ericsson Media Launch 2009

That was the cheer we had to do for the pre-show of the launch as cheerleaders. A supposedly 3 min performance turned into a long drawn out day as we found out we had to do more than just dance. We had to cheer for the other roadshow performers as well as double up as ushers to move guests around...turned out to be a littleeeee exploited.

I sometimes wonder if its any worth doing events/shows as dancers anymore unless it's for a pure dance focused event, because of the amount we're paid and the extra things we often have to do w/o prior knowledge. Not that shows come along alot either...really tired out by all the waiting time and being used conveniently at times...guess you just have to put your foot down and go when you have to go.

Do you know models get paid hundreds just to walk down the catwalk for 20-30minutes?
