Sorrie, late update...

Last week I attended my first Singapore Spectaculars @ Furama City Centre. Almost all the distributors in Singapore attended it. We had great fun at the party. Everyone worked so hard for the past year and it's time to enjoy!!! The harder you party, the more your check grows, the bigger your team grows.

Be Empowered, Achieve Your Dream!!

Here comes our Special Speaker for the Spectaculars...

All the way from Colombia...

Takes him 3 days to fly here. A 40k Senior Executive President Team member. That means his royalty checks every month is USD$40,000, and that doesn't include his own retail and wholesale profits. And there is only 6 distributors out of 72 countries who achieve that. Guess how much he actually earns every month? Well, it could be like... USD$300,000, who knows?




Wow... A leading example!! Taking his nutrition on the stage.

And this is his house. In front if his house is an antique Alfa Romeo car, just for photo taking purpose.
You know how poor is Colombia is. It's a 3rd world country with citizens earning like USD$70 a month. So can you imagine how many lives has he changed in Columbia?

At nite is the party time. The theme is Olympics Night. So everyone dressed up like a sportsman or sportswoman. And you know what's crazy is that it's up to your own imagination what to wear. Not necessary to wear those outfit we normally see on TV.
If you never been to a Herbalife party, you have never been to a party before. I didn't believe it too, until I saw it myself...

We are honoured to have a great and fun host from Fly Entertainment, Irene Ang!!! She really entertained us the whole nite with laughter. Lots of ppl take pics with her and participation.



Then she disappeared when the dinner starts...
And when she came back... No more Irene Ang, it's Rosie from PCK Pte Ltd...




Me and Wing Chiew, haha... Nice posing? This is nothing, wait till you see what's coming up...

. We got sumo wrestler and a swimmer.

We even have a ninja, female ninja...

How about dressings from Atlens, Rome?


Then these outfits? Of cos' not all will dressed up but who cares... it's all about having fun at the party.

HAHAHA... a male ballet dancer?!?!

See how "well" he is doing the leap?


2 boxers? Laughing on the stage boxing?!?!

This is a jockey and her horse charming...

So forget about the Ladies' Nite at the pubs or Happy Hours. Come to Herbalife and join us in the fun. This is in Singapore, and you have not seen what the International events' parties looks like. It's true, those who party the most earns the most.

Of cos' nothing is possible without this man's dream... March 1980 when he started this company called Herbalife. Here are his great quotes, came from a 9th grade school dropout.

The Miracle of Personal Development by Jim Rohn

One day my mentor Mr. Shoaff said, “Jim, if you want to be wealthy and happy, learn this lesson well: Learn to work harder on yourself than you do on your job.”

Since that time I’ve been working on my own personal development. And I must admit that this has been the most challenging assignment of all. This business of personal development lasts a lifetime.

You see, what you become is far more important than what you get. The important question to ask on the job is not, “What am I getting?” Instead, you should ask, “What am I becoming?”

Getting and becoming are like Siamese twins: What you become directly influences what you get. Think of it this way: Most of what you have today you have attracted by becoming the person you are today.

I’ve also found that income rarely exceeds personal development. Sometimes income takes a lucky jump, but unless you learn to handle the responsibilities that come with it, it will usually shrink back to the amount you can handle.

If someone hands you a million dollars, you’d better hurry up and become a millionaire. A very rich man once said, “If you took all the money in the world and divided it equally among everybody, it would soon be back in the same pockets it was before.”

It is hard to keep that which has not been obtained through personal development.

So here’s the great axiom of life:

To have more than you’ve got, become more than you are.

This is where you should focus most of your attention. Otherwise, you just might have to contend with the axiom of not changing, which is:

Unless you change how you are, you’ll always have what you’ve got.



Vitamins for the Mind by Jim Rohn

Personal Development

To attract attractive people, you must be attractive. To attract powerful people, you must be powerful. To attract committed people, you must be committed. Instead of going to work on them, you go to work on yourself. If you become, you can attract.

We can have more than we’ve got because we can become more than we are.

The big challenge is to become all that you have the possibility of becoming. You cannot believe what it does to the human spirit to maximize your human potential and stretch yourself to the limit.

Pity the man who inherits a million dollars and who isn’t a millionaire. Here’s what would be pitiful: If your income grew and you didn’t.

The most important question to ask on the job is not “What am I getting?” The most important question to ask on the job is “What am I becoming?”

It is hard to keep that which has not been obtained through personal development.

After you become a millionaire, you can give all of your money away because what’s important is not the million dollars; what’s important is the person you have become in the process of becoming a millionaire.

Income seldom exceeds personal development.

What you become directly influences what you get.

Brought momo out 2 days ago...

She is always so eager to go out. I bathe her, as usual, and I told her sternly that she need to drink her bottle of milk before we left home or else she will be making a lot of noise in the MRT and everyone will stare at us. Initially she doesn't want to drink, eventually she drank it, though.

You know, I have been taking momo out every weekend or whenever I was not working during the weekends. We been to many places, almost all the shopping malls in town area. Which one to go next? Then I cracked my brain and I think of a place that momo never been before. Not even when momo was still swimming...

Great World City...

I can't straight away bring her there. She will be crying with hunger. That bottle of milk isn't going to last her for long, so I stopped by at Tiong Barhu Plaza for lunch. Cos' we left home quite early, in fact, I tried to drag time cos' if it's too early it's still breakfast menu for those fast food restaurants... you know what I mean? But it's still breakfast menu even though. I wanted to eat at Long John Silver's... The last time I brought momo to Manhattan's Fish Market and I ordered her share too. All she ate was the fries, so I didn't want waste food so I finished her share too. And MFM wasn't cheap...

No other choice but to eat at the food court.

We spent about 2 hours there, walking from floor to floor. Then I took a bus to Great World City. I didn't realised that there isn't anymore free shuttle bus from Tiong Barhu MRT, or there isn't any in the first place... Anyway, it's not that far away, just a few bus stop away but momo was already taking her noon nap. I gotta carry her as I was walking.

Great World City isn't that interesting...

Not much to shop actually but since momo has never been there before so.... I think the only best place to go @ Great World City is to head to Zouk, a few streets away. Didn't know where to go at Great World City so I whispered to momo that we can patron Starbucks or Spinelli. I took her to both cafes and momo choose the former. Great! We stayed at Starbucks. I was really bad cos' I sit on the couch while momo sat at the toddler's stool. Well, she can't be sitting at the couch by herself... or else she will run around. We have green tea Frappucino, grande size. There is this really sweet looking gal sitting opposite our table. She was using iMac, and she ordered green tea Frappucino too. Momo was staring at her, I think she noticed momo but she didn't take much heed.

I estimated the time and I think it's time to get moving... cos' the shuttle bus is arriving soon. When I reached Great World City I went to check out the time slots. The time was 1:10pm and the bus is arriving around 1:30pm. As we walked to the waiting point, we shop around. 2o mins should be sufficient...

We alighted at the bus stop @ Tangs. Again momo was sleeping in my arms. I guess the earlier nap wasn't enough for her. I went to Far East Plaza and I got a discovery. There is a Korean cafe at the ground floor. Just for your info, the signage at the bottom says "No 1 Korean Coffee Chain".




There isn't any thing for momo to shop at Far East. Maybe when she is a teenager. Can you visualize momo wearing all those bling bling stuffs.... I left the place and walked to Cineleisure. Even when I reached there, momo is still sleeping.

Then momo wakes up, and she cries...

I guess she is hungry so we went to MacDonald's.

The best part is the Mac we went to wasn't at Somerset area. It was at Marina Square. Momo had the Prosperity Burger Meal. I was lucky to find a table despite it was crowded there. Had to feed momo first before we went home or else she will make noise in the MRT again. And this time round, momo didn't make much noise on the way home.


These are the photos that I took during the last trip to Vivocity. I was actually at the top floor fountain area and I saw E-Zone so I suggest to momo that we go in and take a look. When momo stepped into E-Zone, she doesn't want to leave. She went around touching the machines...



I got a hard time to coax her to leave the place. It was at Vivocity that we had Long John Silver's.

There is where we saw this playground for kids... I told her to finish her food first then we proceed there. I think she enjoys there. In fact she was chasing a Caucasian girl around earlier. Both of them are running around.


Just in case you didn't realise that the "top" was actually a dress. She had outgrown it so much, I can't let momo wearing just that. She will be exposing her kinky. So I let her wear the bottom too.
Maybe next time I shall bring momo to Sentosa...

I just finished reading "The Richest Man In Babylon" by George S. Clason.
.
Money is the medium by which earthly success is measured.
Money makes possible the enjoyment of the best the earth affords.
Money is plentiful for those who understand the simple laws which govern its acquisition.
Money is governed today by the same laws which controlled it when prosperous men thronged the streets of Babylon, six thousand years ago.
.
7 Cures for a Lean Purse
.
1. Start thy purse to fattening
2. Control thy expenditures
3. Make thy gold multiply
4. Guard thy treasures from loss
5. Make of thy dwelling a profitable investment
6. Insure a future income
7. Increase thy ability to earn
.
A part of all you earn is yours to keep
.
Men of Action Are Favoured by the Goddess of Good Luck

The Five Laws of Gold

1. Gold cometh gladly and in increasing quantity to any man who will by not less than one-tenth of his earnings to create an estate for his future and that of his family.
2. Gold laboreth diligently and contentedly for the wise owner who finds for it profitable employment, multiplying even as the flocks of the field.
3. Gold clingeth to the protection of the cautious owner who invests it under the advice of men wise in its handling.
4. Gold slippeth away from the man who invests it in businesses or purposes with which he is not familiar or which are not approved by those skilled in its keep.
5. Gold flees the man who would force it to impossible earnings or who followeth the alluring advice of tricksters and schemers or who trusts it to his own inexperience and romantic desires in investments.


Where is Babylon?

Babylon (Babylonian, Bab-ilim or Babil, 'Gate of God'), one of the most important cities of the ancient world, whose location today is marked by a broad area of ruins just east of the Euphrates River, 90 km (56 mi) south of Baghdad, Iraq.
Babylonia was located in what is now southern Iraq. Babylonian literature was well developed in the 3rd millennium B.C. Records have been found of highly developed religion, history and science, including medicine, chemistry, alchemy, botany, zoology, math and astronomy.

These photos should be posted before year 2010, otherwise there will be on meaning, actually.

But since I couldn't make it in time, who cares....

These photos were taken on the 30th Dec 2009, of course.

You know, I never knew there is such a place called Marina Barrage. I drive there from City Hall, turn here turn there... finally arrived there. The funny thing is when you exit, it is so damn fast.

Anyway, let's take a look at the pics.


One can even see the Singapore Flyer from there.


This is actually a fountain. Dear says that I can bring momo to play with water there.


This is what a barrage is. On the left is the water we want, on the right is the sea. It is used to separate the fresh water. There are many people walking along it, so if you keep on walking till the end, you will reached the IR. But currently the other end is being blocked.


Maybe this is a good place to run 2.4km, huh?

This is how a barrage works. The "gate" will closed up, something like a dam.

Yesterday I bring momo to ION. She was sleeping in my arms when we reached there. Earlier on, we had lunch at the food court. She is greedy, not only she had her plate of spaghetti she even had durian chendol.

I find this pic pretty fascinating so I snap a pic of it. I actually snap it with only one had cos' the other hand is holding momo. She is still sleeping...
In fact I was carrying momo when we go jalan in ION. She only wakes up later in the part. I went all the way down to the B3 where all the food is. Even with the nice aroma in the air, momo is still in her deep sleep. Didn't stay there for long, I just make a round and proceed to the B2, then B1... all the way till L5.
I passed by Starbucks, thought of putting momo down on the couch while I enjoy myself to some coffee. There is a empty table with a couch, though. The moment I put momo down, she let out a cry so I gotta pick her up again.
Soon momo wakes up. At the time I think I was already at L2. Since she is awake and I was a little pee urgent I told her we shall go to the toilet. You know what, I told her to sit at the sofa along L2 while I go to the toilet. I hide behind a pillar to see if she can sit still or not. After a minute, momo is still there so maybe next time I can go to the toilet and her waiting for me outside. Anyway, I took her with me to the toilet too. I was searching for the gents and I got a discovery...

In ION, they even got a toilet for the little ones too. See how tiny is the toilet bowl? In the end, momo didn't use it but I did. I mean since I was inside, why not?

I bought a book there, at {prologue}, L5. Business Stripped Bare by Richard Branson.
Some may wonder who is this guy, what so great about him?
Here's why...
Richard Branson is chairman of the Virgin Group. He was born in 1950 and educated at Stowe School, where he set up Student magazine when he was sixteen years old. In 1970 he founded Virgin as a mail order record shop on London's Oxford Street. Two years later the company built a recording studio and Virgin Records went on to become one of the top six record companies in the world.
Since then the Virgin Group has expanded to encompass around two hundred companies in over thirty countries. Richard is the only person in the world to have built eight billion-dollar companies from scratch in eight different sectors. Through the Virgin Group's charitable arm, Unite, Richard is working to develop new approaches to social and environmental problems.
He lives on Necker Island in the British Virgin Islands and is married with two grown-up children.


I also bought another book earlier last week, The Richest Man In Babylon.

Just a simple maths calculation...
If a person in his 20 yrs old, he saves $200 a month by the time he is 64 yrs old. How much will he has in his bank? $200 X 12 mths X 44 yrs = $105600, right?
No the answer is $14 million plus.
