* Just Thinking of You *

I was standing in the midst of a quaint little street which was tucked away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Suddenly the loveliest of breezes came through and kissed the entire block with its sweetness. It rustled the leaves of the trees and breathed a refreshing new life into the soul of this beautiful place.

In that moment, I wished with all my might that there was way to capture that charming and overwhelming feeling into a bottle where I could save for a rainy day or give away to a friend as a "just thinking of you" present.

That would be lovely.

One of my favorite days of the trip

Thanks Wes

* Update from Taiwan *

Quick update from Taiwan

We've only been here for 3 days so far but it feels like it's been over a week. Just because it's been nonstop since the moment we arrived. But in a wonderful way. Experiencing the working world in Asia has been really interesting and pleasant (to say the least). 

Everyone's been fantastic here. I always knew how nice people in Taiwan were but the word "nice" just really doesn't do the crew justice. We keep joking how we want to take everyone back with us just because of how efficient, talented, proactive, polite and considerate they all are.

But these work hours have to take some getting used to. We filmed for like 20 hours yesterday which was .. O.o but the crew here said that's a very normal timeframe for mv shoots here in TW. Now we're back at the production office and the guys are of course working super hard in the editing room. 

Anyways here's a photo to say hi...

And yes, Leehom is an extremely friendly and down to earth guy.
It was great working with him and witnessing true talent like that in person.
It's comforting to know that even at the top, there are people like Leehom 
who's just a normal nice guy trying to share his music.

* Wong Fu Productions *

For the past 10 months, I feel like I've been living in a dream.
And every extraordinary second of these 10 months has been thanks to these three super amazing nice guys.

yaa them!

There's no place else I'd rather be.

No one else I'd rather be working with.

And nothing else I'd rather be doing than exactly all this.

Wooow ... my brain still can't comprehend that I'm going to Taiwan tomorrow with the guys to film Wang Leehom's mv. How did this all happen?! O_O

I'm telling you, my last post is all based on my personal experience.
Take it from me... anything in this world is possible. Anything!

"It's haaaappeennningg!"

* It Was Never About You *

For anyone out there who's dreaming or pursuing your dream... I only have one thing to say.

Don't give up your dreams. Don't give up on your path in making them come true.

Even if everyone around you and the entire world says you can't, listen to the one voice that really matters. Your own.

Learn to trust your intuition. It's usually that gentle yet constant tugging in the deepest core of you whenever you decide to ignore it. BUT when you choose to follow it and things align in the most fantastical way, wow.. that feeling is indescribable. Because in that moment, you truly realize it was never about you.

It's always been for the bigger picture. A bigger picture in which we may never fully understand or ever get to see in completion. But knowing you're a piece in this beautiful puzzle makes it all worthwhile. Because without you, it would all be incomplete.

This in no way means your personal dreams are irrelevant. Actually it's quite the opposite. When your dreams finally do happen (and they absolutely will), it causes a ripple effect which is otherwise known as inspiration. Inspiration to others who unbeknownst to you will achieve their personal legends because of you. And before you know it that one ripple you created has catapulted into a tidal wave of endless possibilities for countless people who all go round and round together on this earth. And that my friend is what I mean by the bigger picture.

So don't give up.

You are meant for something greater.
