The Alien Times: Ultimate Rejection

I will surrender if I ever meet this kind of situation.  XD

Anyway this illustration is part of my feeling.  I give up on someone who is just too erratic and too spooky and way too unappreciative . Dont kill me when you read this entry. You know who you are. =D Let be friend once again. =3


As we grow we know that we meet new face , gain new friend and lose friend too. For some reason , we may not get to be friend with other. Just like why some people are just not meant to be together. 

Whenever you have something good happening , just share along. Whenever your day turn bad , have a deep breath and occupy yourself with your hobby or thing you like. Life is up and down, there no guarantee what going to happen tomorrow. Embrace yourself with a lighten heart and move forward.  

Everyone is having stress and there quite a number of people out there who do not know how to relax. Find your own relaxing method whether it can be listening to music or window shopping.

  I will still like to have my air con on to 25c and my creative 6.1 speaker with the sound card surround my small room playing Joe Hisaishi , yiruma , instrumental blah blah....

The growth of a child?

It been in my mind for a pretty long time. I am not parent but I did have my so called family. There are many things that is out of my knowledge thus the rest is up to how all of you think.

All new born child are pure and innocent. They learn everything from the scratch. They are lovely and cute. They have the angelic smile that brighten your days. Parent found themselves new experience and of course matters to handle about the upkeeping of a child.

The growth of child in an environment is extremely important as it can be the key decision for the child future and their own mind set. A child that grow in with a single parent tend to go astray as the singe parent need to work and no one is able to guide the child about life and the difference between right and wrong. They have become lost and have no idea what is wrong with them. As time pass each day , they become a puppet without a mind of their own. They need love and attention from their family. As far as what I see till now, I saw many reach the point of no return and they regret their past a few years after working in the real society. Being outcast and despise by the so call upper class of citizens. Shadow gloom across their future and where is the help?? Where??

In singapore.Odd job and social job like waiter , promoter etc etc are in fierce competition with foreigners like malaysian , indonesia , india , china , tawian plus plus. They get low pay but they save the money and when they convert the singapore currency to their own country currency. It multiple!!! Singapore government need to do something to help those people who are low educated and poor more. Alright back to the growth of a child.

A child study daily and still have to put up with tuition on weekend burning their childhood away. They can be clever but how about morally? We can see high educated people working and earning money. They send their parent to old folk home for the sake of convenient. And when they are old , the children do the same. Thus it become a cycle and a common sign. It is alright if your child are weak in study or slow in learning. The most important thing is to ensure your child have a basic foundation of moral. As least they are upright , caring , generous , kind and forgiving etc etc.

Forget scolding your children when they done something. All those harsh words and beating only create a fear in them. Sooner or later the fear accumulate and when it burst. Your children will rebel against you. Guide them slowly with your kind word as they are your children and they are small. They are not robot or adult who can think so narrow minded. If you keep a pet , you should know how to make a pet like you.

Listen to them first!!! Never assume and overrun your child voice or decision. Let them try and learn. Give a hand when they fall. Encouragement , motivation and inspiration is the main factors for every single child in this world to grow to be a understanding man. Be happy whenever they are excited in new things. It is good to let them create a dream for themselves. They need love from parent , sibling , relative , friends and even strangers.

Strict yet flexible , give your child some freedom to expand their creativity and happiness. I understand this is quite general and it is easy to say. This is based from my view.

As a parent , you should set yourself as a role model. Each behavior seen by your own child will influence them. So if you are smoking , they will be curious and will try without you around. Manner and politeness is very important so be cautious with your words and language. Be loving to your spouse as they are also part of the key for your child growth.

So please do not divorce when you got a child. They will be the one who get affected the most. I have seen how talented people go astray just because the whole family breakup. Parent alway quarreling at home , throwing all kind of funny things around and in worst scenarios parent wrestle on the floor. You can just shout 1 2 3 DING DING DING just like WWE.

I would suggest one of the parent to stop working and stay at home nuturing their child. It help alot seriously as child get affection and love in home and outside home.

Divorce cases have reach 1746 for year 2007 in singapore. It is not a crime to divorce but dont you all think that it is wrong? If you are married , will the love commitment toward each other fade along with the time? Let ask ourselves what do we really see in our lifetime partner?

I`m pretty upset to see friends and relative astray just because of family background problem. Extra affair been spoken several times and I think guys are lustful but that doesnt give anyone else a valid reason to go play around. Respect your wife respect your marriage.

I know I am naggy but hope you all understand what I am thinking. -)

TAT: Stroll in the rain

Fade away the rain droplet to make the overall design smooth.

Got this inspiration just now while walking home from Mrt in the rain. 20 minutes walk with my shoes soaking in water. -__-||

Reflect upon puddle of water over my confused mind and with each droplet of rain that flow down my body. It just wash away the remaining hope left. 

I`m a free man and this time I am serious. Motivation just kick in at the right time!!! There alway a better partner out there for me. Keep going. -)

Built to last and never fading

Lyrics:
I’ve looked for love in stranger places
But never found someone like you
Someone who’s smart
Makes me feel I’ve been holding back
An now there’s nothing I can do

Cause this is real and this is good
It warms the inside just like it should
But most of all
Most of all it’s built to last
It’s built to last
(It’s built to last)

All of our friends saw from the star
So why didn’t we believe it too?
Now look where we are
You’re in my heart now
And there’s no escaping it for you

Cause this is real and this is good
It warms the inside just like it should
But most of all
Most of all it’s built to last

Walking on the hills at night
With the fire works and candle light
You and I were meant to get love right

Cause this is real and this is good
It warms the inside just like it should
But most of all
Most of all it’s built to last
(It’s built to last)

Cause you are the sun in my universe
Consider the best when we felt the worst

But most of all
Most of all
Most of all it’s built to last

Music change again as usual since I finding song to express my thought. Happen to listen to Built to last by Melee. Cant get a better and clear one in imeem but neverthless hope everyone can just enjoy it. 

I have been finding love in strange place , it happen in a class full of weirdos. Yet nothing like her so smart so captivating. So smart that I do not know what to do. Honestly speaking I feel good whenever I see her, from a distance , behind her or even without her presence. I will dream of her. I am happy whenever I see her smile. Although the time is shortening and within a month , we can just bide each other good bye with our heart. I will appreciate the past and the smile on her. I am glad and of course it alright if we have nothing to talk to each other. Even she unblock me in msn , I also have nothing to tell her whether is it my crappy joke or my life or sharing anything else. I just need to know everyone got different reaction toward different people. This is part and parcel of life. I cannot thank enough the gods for giving such a chance to know someone so great like her. Past misunderstanding widen the gap between us , unexpected but it a test of faith. 

I think this is love. One sided love but I never regret. There is nothing better in the world than to see the one you love smiling even it isnt at you. I`m sure everyone know it. We just feel happy. XD

Female thinking are very different compared to guys. Whatever unhappy things happen, it will be to consult a good female buddy to learn and study about the girl you like. They are a precious gem that is unprocessed. To create a perfect , not only need our own attitude toward love and also the quality of the gem to create the best combination of lovely gem. 

A good gem cannot be processed in just one night , a great one took years and the perfect will be the times when both die together side by side. 

Miracle happen everyday and so am I still praying for one.

Product Shot


Yes, it is Ferrero Rocher!!

My grandmother Ring =X

Both are the final work submit for the previous term in photography. We get to do research about controlling light , perspective , composition and prop that can further enhance the product/ food. 

Sound easy? You gonna try it and then you will understand how will it be like. Challenging as you have to think out of box to capture the eye of those target Audience or passerby in the street. 

Note: During my 2 previous entry, I have forgotten to mention the main photographer lily. It been a pleasure knowing her and thank you for all the guidance during the banquet shooting. Not also forgetting her advise too. Hope will get to see her again. XD

Secondly is to my ex-Employer Isaiah for his guidance and the words I told him. I will do my best for the coming internship. I enjoyed working under him!! X)

Searching for graphic/Advertising Internship


A fun shot done in studio.

This is my new portfolio website. Have a look at my works!!  Www.hamsterlord1987.deviantart.com 

Not fully compile and due to some personal issue, I wont be uploading several of my graphic works. Will try to finish upload whatever I think is needed. 

School holiday is coming soon at the end of Nov till first week of Jan. So was thinking of getting internship to learn more in industrial level. However I`m more interested in advertising line as it need more concept and lucky enough it can be working in pair or as a team. 

Internship is widely recommended as it give student a chance to have the feel of how is it like to be working in their area of field. Not only that, a student learn and get more exposure during this period of time. 

In design , advertising and post production, students get to learn alot of new design style, current market demand, understanding of client , building up skill of speaking , further in depth understanding of design software related, learn more toward time management and stress control since these line is stress ( challenging I mean ) and crazy deadline. So it fun and exciting and horrible too. At the end of the internship , I believe each student in this area actually are mentally prepare for the coming final year project. 

Fighting for the position of either a creative director or Art director isnt easy as we need to have abit of talent and good working attitude. A vast knowledge in this imaginary world is a bonus. Well versed in the market strategic tactic and much much more. 

Yup!! That all I want to say. =D

Give me any lobang if you happen to have. =) Internship for at least 6 weeks!!! 
E-mail me the contact so I can send my resume. XD

Replied to everyone in the tagboard. Thank you very much for the comment, will continue to improve my shooting. =)

Was surprise by someone who write a comment and deleted it later. What did he write? =O

My first actual wedding shooting


Bliss

More Red packets for Entry

A stroll down the corridor

Smile!!

Orchid Country club Ball Room

Candid

A joyous moment

Our kiss
Pouring our heart together as one
A toast for us and our future

Several snap of my first actual wedding shooting here. I`m not the main photographer though. This job is very exciting and challenging. We need to move around to capture the moment* which is hard as their movement are unpredictable and or course constantly adjust the lighting along with the surrounding light available.

Firstly I must thx my Old time Buddy Wei quan for giving me opportunity as well as both the wedding couple the hospitality for everything. Hope they will like my shots too. =D

I getting more interested for wedding shot as I love the atmosphere in the ball room. The songs played , the activities and almost everything you will love it. It is so romantic to see how a new wed couple is born right in front of your eye.

Why did I ever wanted to be a photographer is because I want to take photo for different target audience and make them good. Food shot for a F@B to advertise how nice the food is being cooked by the restaurant. Fashion shot to promote the branding and style of respective design by different companies for different customers. Product shot and commercial shooting are consider the main role I am going for. Every different direction of photographer have 2 main concept. To let their customer to remember it forever and bringing a smile on their face.
This is what I think.

I feel very happy whenever I spot I snap a good one for the wedding event. I`m going for more. Time to ask for lobang. =D

Nights

The Difference
Red Night

I like to create illustration of Moon , sky and space. Every night while we are busy doing our work or playing game. It will be good to spend sometime to graze at the sky. We can alway spot plenty of stars and much more if the surrounding place is dark as surrounding light affect the visibility of your eye.

You can try to destress yourself or get inspiration by looking into the Moon and stars. Time to let imagination run wild. =P

Going for a better future.

A pretty old photo taken....since I am living quite near east coast park. Once in a blue moon went to take sunset and enjoy the starry night there. Thought I feel better if someone tag along. =P

Open in new window will be better to view in full size although I resize it less than 400kb. =X

My apology if you found my previous entry is too emo. I just happen to be emo for that day. 

Went to xL , Sam , Ai ling , Ken , Matthew and Leonny blog and get to realize I need to be strong. Sam entry is inspiring. -)

I shall follow the flow with the time and once the story is set. I will move on for a better future.

The Alien Times: Freedom of Heart

You may need to open image in new window to see the full size. 


Update: Music change again!!

This is not a promotion of those who suffer in relationship or whatever to follow as above. It just an message of what I`m feeling now that all. 

Fate is cruel and we are at it mercy. Time is running out and there is no absolute solution to solve the problem I am facing. If it can happen for 1 yr plus and left 6 weeks before moving on to different class and life. It way too impossible with what I am now.

Hold up your tear if you think you are going to break down. This is life and it is part and parcel of life. So regrettable yet nothing can be done. I will definitely remember this period of time and  contended that I get to know someone I like even not together.

After all loving someone doesnt mean have to be together, it the wish to see they smile and live happily. 

Each Obstacles make us stronger. That reason alone will push you for tomorrow and a better future ahead. 

Huggies to those who bear any scar in their heart.Be strong!! X)

Macritchie-BukitTimah Route March

The 23 Shooters for the Route March. Ready  men!! 
The early birds who reach before 7am. I`m still feeling drowsy. =S
Bird go emo just in the morning. Feeling lonely? 
Shelter
Bench
An event we happen to pass by
Scenery
Luo han!!! A very famous in the past which is believe to give owner luck* 
No feeding monkey allowed. =D
A secret Route. Got my left shoes soaked with water by accident. X_x||
Turtle turtle!!!
Tomb along the reservoir shore. Another hidden* route
Fly fly fly!! I`m a dragonfly~~> XD

School of fish swimming around. 

  Wake up around 5.40am on sat. Meet up with Paul at siglap center before fetching Edward and straight to Macritchie reservoir. Feel so sleepy...... >.<

  The walk is 8km plus. Quite alright until I realize in the first place I should never ever bring my 3kg plus Tripod. Having problem catching up, the moment we got to walk upslope. The terrain was rough. Overall it is a very healthy and tough exercise for me. 

  Get to have some shot in the early route till some part, the Organizer speed up for the march. 

  I do not know what to say for this trip. It is very fun , exciting and of course a tedious one. The funniest part is that we spilt into 2 group because 1 of the group wanted to have a rest at mac. There are only 6 people who reach the summit of bukit timah hill while the 17 people went to mac and enjoy the food and air con!! XD 

  The moment I take a slip of coke, I feel so so refresh!!!! Power up!!! XD Shoick!!!!!! I think everyone also feel like in heaven the moment we have our food. Hehe....

 Went for a pool session for a short while before heading back home with Edward and Paul. Was supposed to go for the Fire borne event shooting. However my leg turn jelly and feel so drained so in the end didnt went. -_-||....dot


Thought for this week:

  Things seen to turn for a better point. Yet that the point making me a loss of my own direction.

Best solution to enter a packed train everyday

The Alien Times : Durian Husk Benefit
You can consider making a full armor of durian husk and equipped it all over your body if you want.
Please do not run too fast as the people who saw you dashing with your durian head butt ,need time to run out of the train. You are strongly advise to shout bomb coming or just incoming loud enough. Some people on full blast in their mp3. They dont want to get pricked while in the midst of their music world.

Say out the password : "Poke poke."

If ever anyone ask you what are you doing.

Ok....that the end of the joke. There a no durian sign in all air-con place including MRT. In case you still dunno. =)

Ok let come to the real topic about this. Please see the reference about the Fare increase from SMRT. The Link- http://www.smrt.com.sg/Upload/200891216514242458.pdf

I am a student from a an average family of four. My parent work very hard to pay for me and my brother education. Transport wasnt any problem until we grad from secondary and went to poly. So let take an example that in the morning at Chua chu kang MRT station. We had to squeeze like french fries in the holder. Lucky enough , we still can wiggle around or shift around . The worst part? That is to see and other people trying to force their way in the train and you see the affected commuters face became " Disturbed" It wont be a surprise if you actually wait until a 4th train with some space* for you.

Why increase fare so suddenly again at this time? We know the objectives that SMRT had stated out but then how many people agreed with the new proposal?

Everyone will be willing to fork abit more for the transport fee but we do not see what improvement SMRT had really do especially the congestion in the morning. Hopefully SMRT can really start to improve how to reduce the people frustration of having to wait and squeeze in the MRT, LRT and Bus in the morning.

However, I do have to admit that SMRT done a very good job in planning the bus route , LRT line and MRT. After all, it is rated as top class transport system. So I am quite happy with the services that SMRT provide.

I couldnt help laughing when government encourage those vehicle owners to take public transport. Imagine for 1 day* everyone just leave their vehicles at home and take public transport. All MRT station/ Interchange will be like expo or suntech having Fair show!!! I think the government should think before they speak. Does the spokeman take public transport in the morning in the first place or he is actually happily driving and listening to his favorite music station in his little cosy car? Having ERP outside main carpark in Toa payoh resident estate is driving the resident there crazy by the way.

We understand ERP objective is to improve traffic but why did the gantry pop out in resident area? Reasons given and aired in TV , newspaper and magazine. We are the citizen of singapore , we live and we got our views and do you think we will be so call Okay* by listening to all your reasons?

Just abit on I feel. =P
