During the journey to Des house, I read a book " A leap of love A Novella " by Catherine Lim. Just started abit to kill time. just love this sentence.

'There is a place I want to go, but I dont know where.
There is someone I want to meet, but I don`t know who.'

Tat: Rainbow

Yesterday I was feeling down after recalling past incident and how can I save the situation. So I decided to get my dinner beside my school after thinking that everything is as good as lost. 

There a cross junction traffic light in front of the school and the sky was dark with slight drizzle. I look up at the skies thinking on how the sky reflect my mood. It was then I saw a rainbow. Among the dark grey pitch of cloud, a weak but visible rainbow illuminate my heart. 
I had no word for it but moving on to fortune center for my dinner. 

Miracle do happen. However will I get a miracle too?

Mistake in the past

People make mistakes because we are not infallible. We are human being and we get excited causing us to lose ourselves. Pain and suffering come after mistakes and everyone taste it bitterly. If we keep on looking on people mistake instead of helping them and giving them hope. We are but nothing more than just a miser.

Mistakes I make cannot be forgiven. I will live with the lesson I learnt till the very end.

True love never come smooth....

Left 4 dead

Left 4 dead intro


Another trailer

Witch Attack!


Time for u to know why I rather shooting zombies all day long rather than doing my FYP!!

Playing versus is seriously damn cool and uncool

Cool when
-Someone use a mic and give command
-Teamwork is there
-Knowing when to shoot and when to run
-Squatting down for the back to shoot

Uncool when
-Someone keep friendly fire 
-Someone toss a Molotov on the whole team
-Someone shoot boomer instead of shoving away first
-Someone trying to be Ramboo!! They tend to die first though..
-Someone like to disturb the witch when they can AVOID!!

The whole game is about surviving. You will be given certain gun and medic pack to start with. Extra items like pipe bomb. Molotov , pain pill and 2nd tier gun can be located during exploring.

Shooting zombies and more zombies. It is very addictive!!!

NOW U ALL KNOW WHY I NEVER GET MY FYP DONE!!! RAWR!!!


Time to shoot zombies!!! Hurray!!! My assessment on thursday is sure dead!!!

The curse of FYP

Art is very subjective and dynamic...

My assessment is coming this thursday. I was demoralized as art direction was being rejected for 3 times already. I think it challenging but way too challenging can make me go fly kite.

Everytime when I`m stuck, it will be either I will play left 4 dead shooting zombies and more zombies till the end of the day or it will be dawn of the soulstorm fighting alien and more alien.
Seen like the game I alway play is fighting non-human one. >.<

I think I choose the wrong topic for my FYP. I feel like being cursed now!!! Waaaa!!! 

Maybe I become a zombie and infect the lecturers.....jk.

TAT: Beauty and the beast

The org color
The inverse

One of the most touching cartoon movies is beauty and the beast from walt disney picture. 

I believe a kind soul will have it own blessing. It may not be felt or seen by it is there. There are people who look terrible but they may have kindest soul in the world. Though they could be sensitive and fragile, love will guide them to their success.

Everyone will get the chance to be in love with the one they want. It may not happen now and sometime it seen like there no tomorrow.

Today is a gift , tomorrow is a mystery. Be ourselves and in our best to solve the mystery. =)

Videos ( Ad , Graphic , joke )


( Ad ) A very inspirating video indeed. Excellent concept. Notice all the props are related bed linen? 
Pillow as steps , cushion as clouds, Shirt as a bird. Can see plenty of hard work and passion into this video. 

Nice music too. Let live our life to the best then!


( Grahpic ) This video is more toward concept. It is a rough work but it is unique and creative. Making a character with just several papers of the object in different position and taking photos as frames and compile it into a video.

Didnt like the music though. It is quite well done.


( Joke ) Having complaint of your screen too small to play pixel game? How about playing on the building? =D

Funny and love it!!

Taiwan lantern festival 2007



I love lantern!! 

It is so beautiful to have such a number of lanterns floating in the skies. I feel it is very romantic. Let these light reach out to the darkest corner of the world. =)

History:

The 15th day of the 1st lunar month is the Chinese Lantern Festival because the first lunar month is called yuan-month and in the ancient times people called night Xiao. The 15th day is the first night to see a full moon. So the day is also called Yuan Xiao Festival in China. According to the Chinese tradition, at the very beginning of a new year, when there is a bright full moon hanging in the sky, there should be thousands of colorful lanterns hung out for people to appreciate. At this time, people will try to solve the puzzles on the lanterns and eat yuanxiao (glutinous rice ball) and get all their families united in the joyful atmosphere.

Earliest origins

There are many different beliefs about the origin of the Lantern Festival. But one thing for sure is that it had something to do with celebrating and cultivating positive relationship between people, families, nature and the higher beings they believed were responsible for bringing/returning the light each year.

One legend tells us that it was a time to worship Taiyi, the God of Heaven in ancient times. The belief was that the God of Heaven controlled the destiny of the human world. He had sixteen dragons at his beck and call and he decided when to inflict drought, storms, famine or pestilence upon human beings. Beginning with Qinshihuang, the first emperor to unite the country, all subsequent emperors ordered splendid ceremonies each year. The emperor would ask Taiyi to bring favorable weather and good health to him and his people. Emperor Wudiof the Han Dynasty directed special attention to this event. In 104 BC, he proclaimed it one of the most important celebrations and the ceremony would last throughout the night.

Another legend associates the Lantern Festival with TaoismTianguan is the Taoist god responsible for good fortune. His birthday falls on the 15th day of the first lunar month. It is said that Tianguan likes all types of entertainment. So followers prepare various kinds of activities during which they pray for good fortune.

Young people were chaperoned in the streets in hopes of finding love. Matchmakers acted busily in hopes of pairing couples. The brightest lanterns were symbolic of good luck and hope. As time has progressed, however, the festival no longer has such implications.

Whatever it gonna happen

Silent is the golden rule
There are people who thinking like this. They dont face reality and they just escape the fact. Better approach the one you like to find out how they feel. Sometime it could be a blessing in disguise.

I got her attention for the wrong reason but neverless I still got her attention. 

Mission completed....kind of bastard way. But I like it. =P

My dream and passion

May the light warmth up my heart and let my faith remain strong ..
I am going to redo a whole new proposal....and that work is suppose to be last semester work..
180 degree all are research, notes, sketch and my lovely speakers!!
Still figuring out my event logo.... I will just stare at the candle the moment I am stress. I will just daydream for a while before continue my project. =)

I am behind my timeline by 1 week and shooo!! 

I just decided that this year resolution is to be a man. Just that simple.... =)

Hey Ping siong! Thx for the assessing my content and sharing me your work. Free meal coming soon! =P

There are some questions I feel I must answer before contine my FYP project:

What is success to me?
A success is define when I have a high paid career , a happy family , a private estate near east coast park and able to remain in contact with my friends and buddy sharing my joy and burden.

However success was never complete in our life. ( From Clara )

What am I really passionate about?
I wanted to a pre-wedding photographer cum graphic design. Whenever my client saw the pre-wedding photograph with graphic add on. They will understand true love dont die away and the love they are holding will be with them forever. It can make till like final fantasy the game or movie like graphic. At the end of the work, my message from my work is to tell them that they still had a long journey ahead and remain lovingly to each other till the last. 

I never experience a relationship before but around me, I sense great sadness in the adult life. I wish I can help these people by assuring them that their partner was the one and only one in their life. 

What gives me energy when I am doing it instead of taking my energy?
A praise and simile from my client give me energy and alway at the end of everything. There is nothing better than seeing a client satisfacted with my work.

What have I alway dreamed about accomplishing, but haven`t really thought about how to do?
I dream to be a founder of a company that specialize  different varieties of visual work in photography and graphic as well as advertising. I daydream alot and even think of how to treat my employees and keeping high morale in the company making sure whoever work in my company wont want to go anywhere else. 

I like people with talent and good attitude. I alway look highly of such people and they will make the company a friendly and exciting environment. 

What potential do I see inside me and what have others told me about my potential in the past?
My photograph works was good, I have people who like my photography work although I had to admit that I am only proud of a few of my photography work.

Why need to change the way I am thinking?
I will die in the society if I do not do so. Personal development will determine my future.

So I decided to screw my classmate if they play their prank again. Why treat people so nice when they are playing a fool out of me and making a bad impression in font of a gal I like so much. 

What I am going to now?
I am concerned with my FYP work. I wanted to invite my family*, my teachers , my friends , my photography friends, my boss , my ex-colleagues and people who treat me well through my life.
So I want to give my best shot till my grad show. Though I cannot ensure anything but I believe in myself now. 


If you haven write out your dream and your passion. It will be to write out and give me a link of your. -)

Macross : Do you remember love?

Let have some look at some artwork of Macross : Do you remember love?

An 1984 animated movie from Japan. It is a 5/5 anime with unique and fantastic storyline with good music. Highly recommended for those like sci-fri , robot-tech, anime , Mecha , Military , space 


A.D. 2009 - The human race is in the middle of a three-way war with a race of giant humanoid aliens called the Zentraedi (male) and Meltrandi (female). After executing a space fold that sent it and part of South Atalia Island to the edge of the Solar System, the space fortress Macross is on its way back to Earth. During a small skirmish with Zentraedi forces, young pilot Hikaru Ichijo rescues idol singer Lynn Minmay and their relationship develops as they're stranded somewhere within the ship. But shortly after returning to Macross City, Minmay is captured by the Zentraedi, and Hikaru and female officer Misa Hayase end up back on Earth - only to view the aftermath of the destruction of their civilization. Only a song discovered eons ago - along with Minmay's voice - can determine the outcome of the war.







Remixed



Lyric:
Right now, I hear your voice
saying "Come here to me."
Just when it seemed loneliness had beaten me.
Right now, I see you
walking over to me.
I close my eyes and wait for you to come.

Till yesterday, it seemed filled only with tears.
But now my heart is

* Do you remember? The time when our eyes first met?
Do you remember? The time when our hands first touched?
That was the very first time I set out on the journey of love.
I love you so.

Right now, I can feel your gaze
though you're not here with me.
And in my body a warmth begins to glow.
Right now, I believe in your love,
so won't you please
watch over me from so far away?

Till yesterday it seemed filled only with tears.
Now the world is...

Repeat *

** I'm not alone anymore
now that you're here with me.

Repeat *

Repeat ** 

Full movie of it. =) 
Click on it to view fullscreen. I got problem expanding the size of my post due to my poor knowledge in editing template. =P

At the ending part, it was so touching that I just T_T!!! I really admire how cartoonist work. 1 second there are 12 frames and each frames. The cartoonists have to draw and paint manually unlike now with the help of technology. 

At the end of the day.....I only wish life can be like a fairy tale. Enjoy~
