Knocked Down, But Not Out


In Hong Kong:

What am I doing? I feel I lost my zest for life. I no longer have interest in anything. I just do it because I know I should, and I know it’ll be good in the long run, but I really can’t be bothered to do anything now. It didn’t start out like this though. When I first came home, I was motivated, and I was bursting full of life.

Motivation is finite, but practical steps get results. Continue reading


What’s the Answer?

Dribbling with Blind Faith

Dribbling with Faith

I’m back to square one again. I’m home in Hong Kong, things are the same, but I’m different, the internal fire within has been turned up and growing even stronger.

Previously I was training with uncertainty, but this time I’m training with conviction. I’ve walked through the doors of uncertainty and have been turned back. Most might see this as a failure, but I don’t. I’m ramping up my rehab, because I’ve seen the other side and know it’s possible, I’ve put my foot through the doors and I want more.

The Best Subject To Study


How do I explain that to keep my smile up, sometimes I need to fight gravity lying down?

My smiles don’t come easy, but it’s worth every bit. Even if I’m having a bad day, I can smile, because I got out of bed today. To me, that’s a great start to an amazing day… even if I’m floored in the afternoon for the next 11 hours. Continue reading

How to Make a Decision in a Dilemma

Stepping Into a New Begining

Stepping Into a New Begining

Able to get on the first plane, I prepped my body for the next. This time I was building a body to vehicle me towards my dream. Since I’ve made it back, I want to share this gift with the world and help others too.

So I trained even harder, accepted my offer into physiotherapy, and bought an aeroplane ticket. Though scared, I had just talked myself into going, and so was ready to face it with no reservations, until… Continue reading

How to Achieve What You Want in Life

Flying To See My Grandma

Flying To See My Grandma

They wheel-chaired me forward. I admit it. I was scared, afraid, and excited. Tears pushed against my eyelids as I tried to hold them back. My heart raced, and I was shaking…  and a few tears leaked out from the side of my eye, so I sleeved them away. Everything I worked for encompassed into this very moment.

Over taken with anxiousness I kept repeating a quote by Michel de Montaigne “A man who fears suffering, is already suffering from what he fears.” But it didn’t really help. “ Final boarding call! Final boarding call to Malaysia!”

How to Make the Right Decision

For my first time painting, I decided to express my recovery.

For my first time painting, I decided to express my recovery.

It’s been tossing and turning in my head. I think about it when I’m awake, and dream about it when I’m asleep. How do I know it’s right for me? I don’t know what the future holds, but what I do know, is how to make the right decision and that going down either path will impact a ripple for what’s coming up.

How to Stand Up When You’re Down


Oh no, it happened again! My back gave out. It’s the first time this year, and it always comes at the most inconvenient of times.

Last year it happened three times, all within similar scenarios. There is a list of six possibilities that cause back failure and only three that need to be present for it to occur.

They are:

How Does It Look From Space?


Every weekend I go on a hike, in wonder for adventure and life, searching for something greater. Each walk reflects a progress of recurring results, raised confidence and a deeper understanding through self-reflection.

As each step follows another, the rotating sun plays peak-a-boo behind the clouds, teasing a comfort of warmth. I look up and notice there’s a glimmer of sun and moon both at the same time. Oddly unusual, yet beautifully present to balance each other in support at the same time, striking up a thought of two objectives presented within a journey.

The Best Answer to Give a Genie


If the world wants to see, they must first close their eyes.

There are three realities that happen to us, but only one we take in personally. As quoted from the book The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari, “ The Chinese define image in these terms: there are three mirrors that form a person’s reflection; the first is how you see yourself, the second is how others see you and the third mirror reflects the truth. Know yourself… Know the truth.”
