It Wasn’t A Sequel To Begin With
November 29, 2012 – 18:32 | No Comment

My 3rd novel wasn’t meant to be a sequel to the 2nd novel in the first place. Then something happened. Characters began to beg to be included in the story. Thus, a sequel was born.

I Don’t Work, I Play

Submitted by on February 20, 2010 – 10:17No Comment

Like seriously… who works?!

Ya, everyone on earth works but the successful ones are those who turned work into play. And since I am in love with the field of my choice, my career is like a game status – the better I play, the higher score I gain. But that is not the best part. The awesome part is work doesn’t feel like work; it’s just a game I play every day while earning a living to survive on this earth. Then again, not all games are fun. It all boils down to the way we play and enjoy the whole process.

Wanna know why I chose to be a copywriter and be part of the Advertising industry at the first place? Because I love the idea of going to work, sitting down with a group of people, talking about everything and anything under the sun to come out with a concept that would help clients to sell their products. The industry experts call it ‘brainstorming’ while I call it ‘chatting time’. My best ideas come out when I talk like a silly fool over a cup of coffee while someone else takes the minutes. That’s why the minutes are important for me because I just have to take a look at them, pick out the foolish things I’ve babbled on and twig them a little so that I’ll get BIG IDEAS that work!

Imagine this: You wake up, get to work, make yourself a cup of coffee, walk into a room filled with bean bags, sit comfortably in one and start talking away with your colleagues. It goes on for hours, right until lunch. Then in the afternoon, you sit down at your desk and start working on all the things that have been discussed earlier. No, don’t imagine the morning talk as a discussion meeting. Rather imagine it as a fun social time of laughter and sharing because there is no wrong or right. There are just bouncing of ideas and loads of fun.

That’s the kind of life I chose but it doesn’t really happen in Malaysia, does it? I guarantee it would happen in the agency that I’d open and manage in the future. I even have the list of people I would like to hire, whom I know are the best colleagues to bounce idea of one another with. It would probably be a new kind of mushroom agency as I would set the working hours from 12pm to 9pm. Wake up later, have the morning free to run some errands, back at work with an active mind – sounds perfect eh? I love to be different, yet its a signature kind of difference that I am striving for. Would you like to be part of it? Send me your resumes today!
