It was 1.30am in the morning yesterday when I got started with the business proposal for an education project. By the time I am satiesfied with the entire content and deliverable, it is nearly 7am in the morning! The sound of birds chirping on a Sunday morning... very soothing indeed. I decided to take a nap as I'm attending a seminar for all YECs Chairmen at 8.30am at The Grassroots Club.

Start of Day

Went to bed at 6.40am and got up at 7.45am and as usual, I felt recharged and fresh again. That's the power of deep sleeping. I was at The Grassroots Club at about 8.20am and was the only other Chairmen whom is first to arrive. I met a gentleman in the lift whom I said "Hello" to and introduced myself. Found out that he's a YEC Chairman from Toa Payoh South CC.

Both of us clicked well as we build rapport, exchange views and ideas. Hai Tat is a smart man. I enjoyed his company throughout the day later.

The Arrival of the Other Chairmen

It was my first North-West YEC Chairman meeting attendance in December 2005 at Zhenghua CC. By the end of the meeting, I was tasked to lead a YEC team-building program for all the 12 YECs in North-West region in March 2006.

Despite the challenges and last minute changes, the event was a success. I owe it to Roger Hamilton, Irene Millar, Penny, Dewi and the team from XL Results Foundation for sponsoring the games and for providing crew support.

I would also like to offer my thanks to:

Youths in Singapore needs a lot of nurturing and guidance. Most of them are complacent, extremely pampered, rude, lack of morale ethics and can't even stand a little bit in the sun!

These are the very reasons why I joined the Ace the Place Community Centre in Admiralty, Woodlands in August 2004. I just have to do something about it. By October 2004, I was the Asst. Secretary of the Youth Executive Committee. It is rather interesting to see how youths could own and lead projects to create a difference in the society through the community centres. I was very happy to be given the opportunity to make a difference when I volunteered myself at the community centre (CC) in August 2004.

In March 2005, our Youth Executive Committee (YEC) decided to create some "noise" and "impact" youth program called Chill Out [see album]. The event was a success with more than 300+ youths attending it. We have youth bands, extreme BMX bikers, hip-hop dancers and great youth guitarists …
Finally got this blog up and running again. I shall start blogging again at least 10mins a day from now. I have not blog for the longest time since I lost the url of this blog when my laptop crashed in year 2001 (the same day I registered this blog)!

Can you imagine losing nearly 20% of your work data? It was my mistake of not backing up my data for that month. I lost nearly 1 whole month of work. Anyway, what a great lesson that has taught me. Now, I backup my data nearly every day at work and at home.

I finally found back this blog after losing it for years! Now that this blog is back in my hands, you'll see more development, postings, updates of my personal and professional life and truths on global issues being posted here.

Nothing will escape my mind as long as it bothers me and my belief system. That's a commitment I make and that's the choice I have taken to post my thoughts on-line. If you cannot accept my thoughts, you could leave a constructive comment with a note of "Hello".

Stay driven!
