It’s been an unusually busy month and especially in the past few weeks. While I’m happy with Musemancer‘s accelerated growth of late and that we doubled our team size now, a little celebration is in order – ATV ride up in Hulu Kelang!
This is also our first time having a team activity on a weekend, as previously we normally have it one of the weekdays. Even though I’ve rode the ATV before, this is one of the more dangerous ones – the offroad tracks up the hill are steep, and two of the girls had their ATVs flipped. And I too had a close encounter with a snake at the waterfall (only to learn later that it’s an Ular Katam Tebu, a venomous yellow snake!)
Glad we all got back safely… I’d hate to think what would have happened!
Check it out, I’ve got wiibbit! Was releasing a bunch of frogs at the 1Utama Central Park in the evening. They were joined by their turtle buddies in the lake. And that’s one for the Annual Animal Releasing!
Thanks to Nigel Lee for helping to secure these frogs, he’s the same guy who helped with last year’s batch of lucky survivors!
Finally back to Dallas, where it all started! I needed to catch my round flight back to Malaysia from Dallas Fort Worth and in the two days I had here, I tried to squeeze in at least one more meeting.
And guess who I met?
Yep, the legendary Marlon Sanders. It was a great honor to meet him – also considering that the marketing old timer hasn’t met any other Internet Marketers in person for years! (He said since 2006 but not sure if I can hold onto him for his memory, lol)
He flew in from San Antonio which is about 4 hours drive from Dallas, so it was a gold opportunity not to be squandered. Spent a good two days with him and man he’s such a genius, small wonder why many regarded him legendary.
It wasn’t all business however – surprisingly we got to cover some touristy places over the weekend – the JFK Memorial Plaza and Museum, the nearest gun shooting range, and other places of interest as Marlon used to stay here for years.
So there you have it… my US trip finally comes to an end! It’s been quite a journey and it felt as if I’ve been here longer.
Got to meet many amazing business owners, marketers, entrepreneurs – some of whom I’ve worked with for years but meet in person for the first time – and of course new connections forged.
After nearly a month of being away from Malaysia, it’s time to go home.

Pictured above is one of the last places I’ve visited in this trip. This is the site (Elm Street to be exact) where 35th US President JFK was assassinated more than 50 years ago. Several conspiracy theories surrounding his assassination live onto this day.
Amazing he got more accomplished in his 3 years of Presidency than some other Presidents in their 1-2 terms.
One of the two main highlights of my US trip. This is the first time I’ve met many of the Internet Entrepreneurs and Marketers that I’ve worked with or heard of for so many years… now face to face! Feeling is surreal and somewhat hard to believe. lol
This year’s T&C was attended by 2,500+ people, and the booths were crazy too… it’s as if my email promo tabs came to life!
The sessions were great but man it’s been a long time since I last had info overload (then again, I’ve been going from one mastermind to another meeting to yet another in the last 3 weeks)
Too bad I cannot stay around long enough for Mayhem next month as I need to be back in Malaysia, otherwise I won’t get much done! And trust me, there’s LOTS TO DO and I’m already itching!
In all I spent exactly one week in San Diego. I had time to visit a few places before and after the event including the famous San Diego Zoo, USS Midway and the Maritime Museum.
That was great and all but one more stop remains: Dallas.
