My 5 Birthday Wish List - Told You and It'll Never Happen? Let's test this theory and see if it'll come true.

This wrist watch ain't working no more

Other alternative birthday gift ideas I might want are Dr Dre Beats earphones, a nice pair of sneakers, or a month membership to a gym.

People says once you tell others about your birthday wish, it won't come true. So I'm entering this entry to test this theory. As my birthday is coming soon, preparations have to be made to invite my friends, order the food, the utensils, even the entertainment bit as well. But as I scuttled here and there, my mind won't let me rest. Some friends asked me what I wanted for my birthday, and it stopped me a moment to ponder. So below are the list of 5 things I want for my birthday, and since informing my readers here I ain't expecting to get any of it:

1) A wrist watch
Every morning I'm greeted by the Azan prayer call from the mosque nearby. It's nice to hear someone chanting in Arabic, but too much of it can be disorienting. It also serves as a wake-up call for me, since not having a wrist watch for some years now. I cannot open my tablet just to see the time, it would be just too cumbersome to wake up and switch on my tablet. The Azan morning call is a natural savior - for I'll never be disappointed of its presence. But I still miss a nice wrist watch. The last one I owned was a K-Swiss watch, but the mechanics in the watch stopped, for good. I've sent it to the repair office at Changkat Raja Chulan before and yet it still stopped. This costs me money. Better use the money to buy a new one, right? Or maybe one of my friends would bought me one - the most expensive one ok?

This handphone still surviving
2) Smartphone
My tired old Sony Ericsson Cybershot handphone is with me for nearly more than 4 years now. I remembered when I first bought it at Sony KLCC, the price was close to a thousand ringgit. Now with that same amount, I could get a pretty decent smartphone. But after checking out the marketplace, I find most smartphones are similar in its functions. The other more realistic point is I seldom make calls to people - unless it is urgent. Most of the time, my tablet prove to be better suited for Internet surfing already, so it feels kind of wasting money on smartphones. Besides, smartphones aren't that very smart to begin with, I wonder why the term "smart" is accorded. Of course, the HTC One X got good reviews, and the Iphone 5 is still months away.




3) Quality of Life for People Close to Me
Remember what I said about telling the world your birthday wish? Well, it seems like this wish ain't happening anytime soon, but still I am hopeful. I'm really compelled to wish people around me well, because what you do to others do come back to you. If the environment where I lived is thriving, I'm sure I will thrive as well. Unfortunately, realistically, I hate to be negative about this, but it is true - there's a great lack of quality of life. But as for all birthday wishes, I must reserved one unselfish wish for others too.

The spirit of my father calling me
4) Father Robot
Everytime I see little children with their fathers, I feel happy for them. Since losing my father to a car accident when I was 3 years old, this old pining seems to keep coming back every time my birthday is around the corner. It's like the spirit of my father kept calling out to me at this time of the year, in my dreams, through other people's fathers. What if there's a robot that could mimicks our fathers? What if there's a brain wave device to copy all the beautiful memories we shared with our fathers when we were young and imprinted it onto the robot's mainframe system? Then I could have him around me everytime I needed advice about life, love and relationships. Except of course, he would need to be recharged after a day's use. Robots live forever, so I wouldn't have to pine about his death.

5) Short Life
A lot of people wanted long lives. As for me, I'm kind of morbid in a way that I want my life to be short, but meaningful. It's a hard life, and as an artiste you sometimes see there's no end to the horizon, but it just keeps going. There's no future in sight, except a dark hollow way that keeps going nowhere leading to a giant empty hall where quality work is scarce, either at the tune of non-existent or slave labor. Enough already, I want everyday life to be filled with the things I want, activities I enjoy doing, with people I loved (it's MY birthday anyway, so why care what others think). At least with a short life, I don't have to see myself grow old and mouldy. Hey, I'll be remembered for how I looked like right now! Forever young in people's minds. Recently, I surfed Youtube, and came across this video dedicated to my pictures! Wow, thank you for mixing and cutting this little video with all my pictures in it - whoever you are EYEHOLLYWOOD.

Recently, I read in the newspapers our quality of life has increased! What joy. But unfortunately, as I read further into the article, I found out that the definition of quality of life is based on the increase subscription of internet and telephone services, vehicle ownership and low-cost housing ownership to the low-income group. Personally, I find these indicators to be seriously flawed, and utterly stupid. Is my quality of life determined by the stuff I owned? Read the findings again and you'll notice how much emphasis is on the physical material aspect gained as opposed to the more basic rights of human freedom. One conclusion I could draw from the news article is that we're all actually in bad debt considering how much materials we need to acquire in order to sustain that sort of "quality of life".

Help, this quality of air sucks.
Quality of life this is not.
You'll be pleasantly surprised (and relief) that in my Artiste Training Course, I can help you achieve the quality of life not determined by your material possessions. It's seriously demented how the mainstream media is espousing the increase in material gain as some form of quality of life, even the claims are supported by some government official. Do we all need to stop for a moment and evaluate ourselves? As my birthday is looming before me, I find getting presents less and less important. The quality of my birthday rests not on the gift itself, but rather the person who is giving it to me, or more importantly how I treat myself.

So what is the meaning of Quality of Life? Well, I've gathered some thoughts, and they're really obvious, it's just most of us failed to see it. Our material-chasing mentality sort of blinded our perception on these basic, and extremely important points in gaining the quality of life. First things first, quality of life is NOT achieved from getting married, or having children or getting more money. For some people it may be the case, but how many divorce cases, single parent raising a child type of "family" we have? No, no. I believe for me, the FIRST most important facet of a great quality of life is free from debts.

Beggars and old folks amidst new structures.
Our focus is more on infrastructure
than true quality.
Quality of Life 1: Free from Debts
Isn't that obvious? Being free from debts should be the main concern for everyone. It shouldn't be the motivation for you to work. I used to be like that, work just to earn money, so I can pay off the purchase I've made using the monthly installment plan. But seriously, once you've completed the installment plan, there seems to be another thing you wanted to buy - material stuff, mind you, not intangible product like knowledge or coaching services, which would do you far, far more good. In my Artiste Training Course, I would depart a masterplan in making your life free from chasing after material satisfaction and focus more on getting the life you truly want.

Quality of Life 2: Doing what Matters
The second most important point for me in pursuing the great quality of life is to be able to make a living from the doing the work I love. On a personal level, I wanted to become a full-time actor in Malaysia, but unfortunately I can't because my racial profile does not match my linguistic ability. The assumption being a Chinese, you should only act in Chinese dramas - which I can't, for I'm more fluent in BM, thanks to years of being in a national school curriculum. A sub-aspect of this point is fair wages. I cannot put myself through all the trouble for peanut pay, and I'm not just talking about the entertainment industry. It's everywhere you read at the job ads, the reason being there's a job ad in the first place is the person being hired before you had left because of the poor pay or the workload isn't being fairly compensated through the payment. The other sub-point is fair representation for everyone. The reason why we failed this is because we allow ourselves to be compartmentalised to certain groups. I've always wanted to be a receptionist, but I can't because I'm a guy. See what I mean? It's not the right environment where we can do the best we can, excel and do it again.

Good Boy Turned Bad. If I behave this way, 
does it mean I'm bad?
Quality of Life 3: Freedom of Expression
The definition of who we are is dictated by the media, our religion, our traditions or other political parties in the government. Strip all that away and who are you? This brings me to the third point - freedom of expression. There are too many restrictions of what we do. You can slap the "culture" label on these restrictions and rules. But we're not all wild crazy animals here. There's a form of duality in all of us - the person we truly are when we are by ourselves and the person we behaves when we are among other people. So I took on a stroll, and the quality of air is simply horrible. Talk about quality of life is up with a big question mark over my head. I began to see how disparaging our own thoughts are in tandem with the actual world outside. It's like how parents see their children when they grow up and become whom they might become, only to turn out otherwise.

Quality of Life 4: Ability to Fulfill Your Fullest Potential
It's actually very simple to fulfill your potential. The unfortunate situation is our environment has too many distractions that makes most of us don't know where our real potential lies. There are rules to follow, another distraction. There are the people we need to respect, another distraction. And the biggest distraction of all is we all need money, hence our work. Most of life's distractions make most of us stressed out, confused and angry. Add to the fact that at the end of the day, we're all exhausted and tired, and most of us just want to be lazy. So don't complain about work or your life, because that's exactly your choice! You refuse to take the time and coaching lessons from a professional to help you. You get exactly what you deserved.

An example of thrive versus survive
demonstrated in my class
Quality of Life 5: Thrive versus Survive
As an employer, head of government ministry, manager, parent and teacher - it's imperative that you hold the power to create the best environment for your subordinates, employees, children and students to thrive. Pay is a part of other factors involved in the mix to create the best environment for thrive. When people are thriving in whatever they do, they definitely wants to do it more and better each time. As opposed to just merely surviving, most people would get turned off and become lazy. As an experienced Communications Coach, I've seen this happened often, and put it in a larger picture, society as a whole needs an environment where everybody, regardless their race, religion and status can thrive equally. Quality of life demands it. Without an ideal environment for everyone to thrive, and only for mere surviving, a lot of resentment would occur. In my Artiste Training and Communications Course, the environment I create would always exemplifies this point.

Is this the way you perceive the world?
Your Perception Counts
It's all about the perception. I think the real political fight or dilemma we are facing is not between the Malays and the Chinese, or the Indians with the Chinese. If you really think about it, it's between those with money and those without, the young versus the old. I came upon so many nice Malay friends, who are courteous and unfortunately I've been also equally cheated by as many Chinese employers and even relatives. So it's not about the race, and don't believe when any politician drum up the race issue. It's silly and myopic. In fact, I gather Malaysians are simply afraid of mixing and working with others, for fear of being stereotyped or labelled. They wouldn't dare to be themselves simply because our environment is not one that encourages individuality, thinking and freedom of expression. If this type of caged-in environment continues to persist, so how can progress, innovation, fairness and justice prevails? Instead, most of us are mired in our own delusions of quality standards, thinking we are better than before, thinking that we deserve the best but not bringing out the best in ourselves first.

Blame Your Environment? 
The environment dictates the social interaction of people from different groups. Unfortunately, the environment doesn't seem to be up on par with the so-called "quality of life" it's been hyped up to be in the media. I blame it on the environment, NOT the government per se. Blaming it on government is easy, because it's the country's largest organisation. We need to understand that the government works in a collective way. It's not the whole 100% we want to blame, we should be more specific and take some responsibilities too. To start real change, it always begin with ourselves - YOU. I blame it on the fallacy of our own limited perception of the true picture  about our actual world. We simply ignore the bad apples and constantly hoping good apples will fall. It won't and never will! Our culture is more tribal than unified. We forgot that we are never really separated by race, religion and status - we are just clawing at each other in the same cage. One reaction will affect the next person and it continues to spiral downward our quality of life. It's a collective consciousness that anchors on the dominant force. But always remember, one small change in thought is all it takes to bring the next dominant shift, and hopefully a better perspective to take positive actions, right here, right now. What are you waiting for?

Thankful that I can twist, turn and use my body in creative ways. Wait till you get a sharp pain in your arse then you'll know.

Only now could I muster the strength to write this blog entry. The past few days I was in pain. To be more specific, pain from my buttocks! Seriously, you may laugh at my misfortune. But to me, the pain I felt actually inspires me to write this entry. You know, I couldn't sit up without feeling the pain. Through the pain, I now realized how much I bend my upper and lower bodies just to do simple house chores. I have to bend down to pick up the garbage. Bend up straight to lift myself from the bed to get to the toilet in the middle of the night. Even the simplest stroll took a toll, for it causes me pain. Whenever at the restaurant for a meal, and the cook was burning pepper that could set off potential sneezes, I have to prepare myself for the pain to shoot up the instant I blow my nose. Somehow, I have to control myself from opening my mouth and "ah-choo".


Old before your time
I felt like an old man. I have new sympathies for old folks, some of them with their painful joints. Imagine what they have to go through just to wake up and get to the door - it's a physical challenge! No, no, from now on, I want to be thankful that I can walk from here to there, breathe easily and do simple tasks like cleaning my house. I'm thankful already. Many people would find me to be ridiculous to think this way. Of course, I am one of the kind, and nobody can be like me. The negative social stigma from the public whenever a person is in pain is what's worst. When I explained to my gay friends about my pain, some of them would make jokes about my sex life. When I mentioned to my straight friends, most of them would tease me of the awkward way I walked. Even the Indian barber I went to recently to have my haircut complained. He curtly accused me for his own incompetence, since the way I sat on the stool is like I have something in my arse, making me tilt on the sideways on the stool. It's the pain, I told him earlier and still he blamed it on me for the disproportionate haircut at my sides. In my heart, I prayed one day they would all suffered the same predicament as I do, and we'll see who would have the last laugh.

The spot where my butt collides with Earth
It won't happen to me
The thing is, people don't see themselves as susceptible to physical harm at even the safest of places. Most of these jerks think it won't happen to them, it's always the other person who would endure such a situation. I remembered the day it happened to me. The past week has been extremely hot, and if you recalled, there was this peculiar evening when it suddenly rained heavily! I didn't bring my umbrella that day, and quicken my paces to my home by using the shortcut under the balcony of the pouring water - draining out from the roofs. At that exact spot, my feet suddenly slipped from the floor! In the middle of my slipping, I still recalled my fancy thoughts that the fall won't hurt much since I've lost enough weight recently and my small frame of body won't impact much when I hit the ground. But I forgot I was carrying my bag on my right shoulder and my water bottle on my left - the weight of it just pulled me down harder (and faster) onto the cement flooring, hitting squarely on my wet and bare sphincter area of my butt - a double whammy. When it hits, the pain shot right up through my wet soaking body like a lightbulb came alight from the switch. Painfully, I picked myself up and quickly entered the house.


All tricks and poses
This incident forces me to think differently. Now, I am the "Prime Minister" of this body country of mine that only I could have. So no matter what, I have to take good care of it, nurture it, wash it and exercise. But when a constant sharp pain is in my buttocks and disrupting my day-to-day activities, my first instinct is to just let nature takes its course and let it heal by itself. Unfortunately, this does not prove to be effective. So I tried to massage that painful part with both of my legs up against the wall and my back on the bed, literally massaging the painful part with oil. I have to close the door while doing it for it looks too tantalizing for my housemate to come upon. Rubbing the hurting part the first time was really nerve-wrecking. It was so hard to spot the painful part because pain was everywhere! The first night of the incident, my whole body automatically shuts down, and I went to bed hazily with the throbbing pain at the center where I always sit.



My hands are not talking to my head
The next day, the pain still sleeps next to me. I decided to go for a swim, knowing that some exercise would do some good in reducing the pain. Indeed, it does! Exercise like swimming, promotes intense blood circulation throughout my muscular body. Then I come to think about this situation in our country. Street protests is a pain in the ass. We can apply medicine on the pain like ordering the police squad or fire tear gases to curb or stop the demonstrations. But does it work? The pain still exists. The situation is our country only allows certain groups to be the head or the arms. But what if my buttocks want to be the head? No, the hands would not allow it. My bottom would get a good spanking. Unfortunately this is what happening. When there's a pain, like in my case, strong medicine might not work and expensive even, seeing that now I'm in such a piss poor condition. The medicine could even cause an opposite reaction. The simplest solution is to exercise - all natural and safe. The blood have to circulate throughout the body, by blood, I mean fair financial practices by everyone. No money laundering, discounts for certain groups, employers cheating or reducing wages of the common working folks. The blood have to flow easily and the cells, representing the people, can go freely wherever they want. It is only when certain cells want to stay put in one place, and absolutely refusing to give up that place - that's when it grows and becomes cancerous.

Extremist, aren't you?
There's something about swimming that spreads the momentum through the whole body evenly. So when you swing your arm or wave your leg in the water, the impact is not focused merely on one part of your muscle, but ripples throughout. I believe pain in the body happens when one is an extremist. Extremists are people who focuses intently on one or two things the whole time. They would not allow the hand to become the head, or in my case the buttocks to become the brain. So it's all very extremists in our society today. The ambitious, hardworking, do or die as if tomorrow better days would come. There's really no balance of thought and actions anymore. Extremists generally want others to conform and be like them. They would grab anything they could in a desperate manner, with a tight control on their money. But extremists too have their place in this world. The way I see it, extremists are far better off becoming actors on screen and not in real life.
