BIG WORDS Editors, Production Editors, WRITERS

29 01 2008

Every wonder why Editors, Production Editors, WRITERS are so popular? Is it because the way they write something that so intrest your eyes or your mind. This peoples which claim they have the whole world esp those writing for business weekly papers, always think on the way they want and when the outcome is good they fly likes birds in the sky,  but when the outcome is worst they are like crocs finding for victims, and we designer are the victims obv…

 They don’t even know about layout, they only think that readers will understand what the said, how many business people actually have the time to read all those nonsen that you guys write, probally they just see the pictures and the head line and the whole design, not your ugly wording that you wrote. In a media publications company writers are like birds flying above us designer like a cow waiting to get poke by them, Is really getting in my nerve, those Editors, Production Editors, WRITERS which claims story is more important than design… and they are always people who went back early…Shame on you!!!!!

But I would said certain Editors, Production Editors, WRITERS they knew what designer are…….not all but at least they is something, I salute to those…..

I might not be a good designer but I can write… you Editors, Production Editors, WRITERS are nothing…

Those who don’t even care of what a designer feel about layout…………..FLY A KITE!!!!


Master of Tailor

29 01 2008


Big borcaded silk laying around the ground was a situation that was once seen in Kechara Sarawati, Raj the tailor which were invite to here to educate the subject of tailoring nice cloth and thangkas brocaded silk. To be honest, I didn’t attent any of the class, but this was not the point. The point is this man with a shy and sweet smiling faces man is really great. I met him through Paul intro to me, indeed when I was at the exhibition at Sunway, he can still regconised me, that was great, at that time I did chated with him for a moment and I feel he was not just good at his stuff but was very kind the way he talks and the manner he have was asylum…

 I was sad, but yet happy for him that he can go back now since he left his home for 3 weeks, but sad because he is going back but rejoice he will be back. Although I were not there when he boarded the plane, I wish him all the best…

 And may we meet again!!

Raj you are indeed a Master of Tailoring

Rolled up

22 01 2008

It was today, I woke up at 8.00am and was tired b’cos of heavy load work on friday. But what kept me awake was The Thangka Exhibition which I have volunteer myself.  Indeed from friday I was all rounded excited, doing some research about Thangka and the about stautes and wrathful Dharmma Protector so if people ask me some question I could at least answer  it. For me is the biggest experience I ever participate in. I reach pyramid at 945am and I went directly to Susan which is so kind by giving me a chance to participate in such auspicious event. Setting up for the day have began to take place when I arrived. I was also introduced to Albert who been an intresting guy to chat with – funny, sense of humour is that what I can said about him. I also meet up Anna Tan, she is a sweet girl, with a gental smile as she greeted me, she give me an impression of very shy and quiet girl but later I notice she also talks alot..hahaha….But definetly she is nice to talk to. Later in the day Chia also came and he was also helping me in people which speaks chinese, I feel myself very low, as Chia spend some time explaining to me some others information of Thangkas which I cannot retrieve on the net. At first when I look at the Thanka, those which is been brocaded with silk usually will have a big look a like ribbon above of it and two straps by it side, I taught this was merely an decoration, but it was indeed a decoration but there is meaning behind it – Chia told me because people in tibet always move around with theirs belongings, tent and yaks – due to the land have no longer grass for the yaks to eat they have to shift in order for them to feed theirs yaks with grass and form a field for food and theirs shelter. Intresting enough the ribbon above the thangka is use to protect the painting and the two straps is use to tie behind the thangka to secure the painting. Is been almost 3 hours I been standing, my legs are getting the signal of pain, but I still want to cry on to make contact with those who came in, so I don’t waste this opportunity given. Just when I were about to get some drink, a Mr. Singh came in looking at the Thangkas, I started the conversations by informing him about the origin of the thanfgka, than he start telling me about his religion, at first it was intresting, later he get deeper into sikhism which freaks me out as he told me he will share with me a secret teaching, I was like HUH!!!. He even insist me to get a pen and a paper to write down what he going to tell me about, at the end I didn’t get a pen but just listen to what he got to said. The whole secret teaching which he mention was actually what I have heard before the physcological effect of keep repeating the positive words such as “I am Brave” so even if you are a coward you will be brave by repeating this words everyday. But with a open heart I just listen take as is a extra knowledge of others method. For me I only believe in the three jewels and the dhamma that will be the method.  But he still talk non stop and than “MIGHTY JOEY” came to rescue me, Joey suddenly make me feel secure just like an angel send from above is there for me..hahaha.. Thanks Joey.. In this whole event my contribution is just 0.0000000000000000000000% which is just equal to nothing but yet the things that I have learned in the event is 10000000000000000000000000000000000000 more of what I can learn in 3 years in my college life. What made me sad, due to I have a function on sunday, and I was not able to make it to assist, is totally a selfishness and my ego and also my negative karma that I won’t able to assist for the closing on Sunday in such a auspicious day. Before I left I walked through the whole thangka exhibition  and just in sudden inner tears arose reflecting of what am I if I didn’t know about the teaching of the buddha, I didn’t meet Rinpoche, although Rinpoche might not know me, but that does not matter, what matter is that Rinpoche teaching have inspire me to a better person I owe alot to Tsem Tulku Rinpoche & all kechara members, friends & committee for making termendours effort to spread the dharmma without them I won’t even recieve online teaching from Rinpoche, this valueable teaching is more than just a basic teaching but is like a precious doctrine that leads us to enlightement.

The ground in highland flourish with fresh air,
The lotus bloom with beautiful petals,
May all dhamma works be flourish with suceess,

The living bees fly around the fresh flower,
Beautiful flower display around the field of merits,
May Tsem Tulku Rinponche live long life,

Star came upon when nights fall
Shining above all,
May blessing shower upon all
Kechara Members, Friends, Committee & all sentient beings

No Bonus, No Money, No Cofirmation letter OFF I go…..

15 01 2008

I was abit frus recently from my MAC got ill, to struggling to get a laptop and now with no bonus for chinese new year and after 6months of hardcore of works no confirmation letter. Sometimes I feel working here is The Edge is a struggle rather than a enjoyment, not because of money definetly, is here things go so slow, esp went writers get to take theirs own sweet time dreaming of the words to make a story we have to wait like idiots… Even holidays we have to come back to work just because of “THEM”. Sometimes I have a feeling there is a double standard position over here where Designer is like a slave and writers are the above slave, just like Olden Chinese & Korean Dynasty where even slave have a few level.

 Seriously I think in Malaysia, designer can’t really surivive and that why lots of designer would work part time, because for those bosses who are so CEO= Critical Emotion Officer, they think designer much be creative and can change a pic from A to Z like magic, If we designer is so great we will be above you screwing you day and night. I feel so insulted when I worked here for 6months and although my art director have told me indirectly I have been confirmed but “WHERE IS MY LETTER” is this a joke or what….  How I wish one day where designer start gone from this world and that where those CEO will know how important is us, with my little evil wish, I really hope those CEO will be abit kind to us or else,

Fly a Kite!!!

Black Tea Offering

17 12 2007

I was supose to meet paul today at 5.30pm at Kechara Discovery to dicuss on the logo for Kechara Discovery and the website as well. After that I plan to go Kechara House 2 for Mitsegma chant. Later in the evening will I was shopping with my parents for some interior for my home at Summit paul called me and told me that he have a meeting at KH at 4.30pm so in this case I will just go to KH2 direct..=)

 When I reach KH2, I saw alot people busy around making sure everthing is well prepare for the xmas party. Me and paul went on to dicuss about the KD stuff until 8.10pm. I was worry because people in KH 2 suddenly dissappear. I was thinking probally the prayer is cancel due to tommorow xmas party. So I was thinking what should I do instead? Than Wan join us in the dicussion on the logo and she gave some intresting and useful comment on the logo.

 Will waiting for others to come paul been very kind help me over to aunty Han Nee so she could take care of me. Aunty Han Nee was very kind she explain to  me what prayer will they be doing. At my suprise we will also do the Lord Setrap Puja and Black Tea Offering as well, I was like OooooOO….. Really I always said I was not prepare for Lord Setrap practice because I fear, fear of what I am not sure probally this due to my negative karma which unable me to do it. ?

I was sacred that I don’t the chant and how to do it, so aunty Han Nee actually taught me how to do it while waiting for others to come. It was already 8.45pm only me, aunty han nee and two others members where there, so aunty han nee decided that we should start. We start off with taking refuge than Guru Yoga Lama Tsongkhapa and 1 mala of Mitsegma. 

 They most exciting part come where we went to the kitchen to prepare tea for the Black Tea Offering to Lord Setrap. I told aunty han nee that I am not sure to do the offering, but due to we need 4 set black tea offering, I was to participate. Without fearing I go on with the offering. As this was my first time, I wasn’t very sure on the pronounciation of the tibetan word so I just watch on the words and slowy I flow it. After 2 rounds of black tea offering we call it the day. We did some dedication and the prayer end.

 My whole body & soul just feel light and happy.

 It was very fabulous, after the prayer. While waiting for my parent to come I had a chance to talk to Pauline admin at KH2 where she share with me alot about KH. Which make me feel so happy and happy. While riding back home my parent decided to pack some food for my dinner although I reject their kind offer, they still think I should eat something. As usually my mom went down to pack and I follow along. After packing a “Hokkien Mee” at Jalan 222, we headed back home using the federal highway. Along the way, i feel something is wrong, my handphone …where is my handphone I was asking quietly in my mind. feeling real fear if I ask my dad to turn back to find my handphone he will shout definetly. Although I was trying to convience myself that probally my handphone lost because of my negative karma which I done in my previous action.

 My state of mind was terrible, but one thing that I notice is to be clam, and I chanted very strongly Mitsegma and visualise Lama Tsongkhapa beside that I ask help to Lord Setrap. At that time I was really fear of what will they do to my handphone, my contact all lost, but yet I tell myself that if this happen it show a sign of purification. I keep thinking that if i loose the Dhamma & my guru it will be more hurt than loosing the handphone.

 Just as I reach home, and about to get down from the car, I don’t why my hand slip onto the base of the car and I can feel my handphone, I was so delighted and happy. When I get it I immediate thanks Lord Setrap and Lama Tsongkhapa for their blessing. Probally it something funny but I notice as well the jeans that I wore have a hole in one of the pocket and usually I will hold my handphone on my hand when I am in a car than when I was getting down to somewhere I will chuck my handphone inside the pocket with hole.(left) {because when I went down to pack the food, I notice I put something in my pocket, but if it wasn’t the blessing from Lama Tsongkhapa & Lord Setrap it might probally slip onto the ground instead the base of the car.

 Beside that if is not the kindness of my Lama, I would probally got worsen in my life. May my lama have long life and may whatever his wish will be fullfill.
