It’s been almost 2 weeks since I last updated my Personal Blog. I had been busy with launching PLRGold: Videos and later wrapping it up, even though the Early Bird special ended in just 4 days.
My partner, Stephen Luc and I thank all the Joint Venture partners and affiliates who have contributed to the success of the launch – YOU ROCK!
After wrapping up the launch and minimizing the support issues from our customers, I decided to call a couple of days off to party a little bit in KL and take this opportunity to meet up with some people. 🙂
The “Meet Edmund Loh” 2nd Anniversary
At least, that was what Khai called it.
On November 9th 2 years ago, I met Khai Siung for the first time through his younger brother, Khai Lee. In Khai Siung’s own words, I came full circle with his family when I finally met him since I knew 2 of his other brothers back in high school years earlier.
Long story short, Khai Siung had just came out fresh from several years of experience with Network Marketing or MLM and I introduced him to the world of Internet Marketing. Admittedly, I was not in the business of coaching people 1-on-1 (and I still haven’t yet so far, at this time of writing) so I advised him to invest in a couple of books from the nearest book store on the same topic, that I believed would really, really help him.
Khai Siung and his then girlfriend, Yuenn (now wife) started everything from there, and I have every reason to believe they shouldn’t be looking back ever since. In fact, I’ll let Khai tell you in his own words here.
Since I was in PJ, I thought might as well catch up with both Khai and his wife again and for nostalgia appreciation, why not have dinner at… guess where? 🙂 A&W!
On a side note, it wasn’t safe that night we went out – the roads were blocked by several police officers, armed with guns, batons and shields. And we also saw a lot of people wearing the shirts with quotes like “NO to ISA” “I’m with RPK” “No holds barred” etc. probably marching to a group protest against the government. (Or had the crowd already dispersed?)
Dinner at Starhill Gallery, Bukit Bintang
Mindvalley was hosting a dinner for all of the SMART Seminar speakers and entrepreneurs from a variety of other fields at Feast Village, and I’m glad I could make it on the short notice. It was great catching up with a few folks as well as getting acquainted with new leaders and enthusiastic entrepreneurs over a scrumptious meal. 😛
An interesting encounter before I arrived: I was taking the KL Monorail to Bukit Bintang when I noticed one of the Monorail doors was out of commission.
Even though the sign was clearly displayed on the door in both Malay and English, it surprised me how long a reaction it took people to realize the door was spoiled at every station stop! And I mean, they actually wait – as in more than 10 seconds – for the door to open even though the sign was clearly pasted in front of them in both languages! Either people’s reaction in general are growing less sharp or there are still a lot of illiterates in our society?
The train ride wouldn’t be half as fun without mentioning how a group of young Malay boys played a hilarious prank just before they finally got off: they stood behind the spoiled door as if it was still working, thus fooling the incoming passengers to expect that the door would naturally open! 🙂
Okay it’s picture time from here on…
Drinks at Luna Bar
The conversations and socializing resumed in Luna Bar, just near the KL Tower. View was breath taking! My second time here… 🙂
I could sense a “shift in the gear” when talking to these seemingly ordinary individuals, for what’s backing them is extraordinary achievements. There was absolutely no room for small talks, and in spite of their massive success in their respective fields, I am more impressed by how humble many of them actually are. If I had to pick out only one most important lesson I learned that night, this is the one.
Meet Brian Wong. He alone is proof that the world is truly connected; Brian knows some of the people I personally work with! And to give him some praise, he looks younger than he is. 😉
He had also put up a set of photos on his own blog here.
Haven’t seen Kenneth Yu and the rest of his Mindvalley gang in ages – in fact the faces I saw that night were like 90% different from the last year I saw them at the same place. I’m happy to tell you that Kenneth had seen exponential growth in his copywriting business and ventured on to become an expert with Twitter as well. 🙂
Here’s Lisa Zahran, Kenneth’s apprentice and upcoming online copywriter too! She hails from Penang.
The head and co-owner of Mindvalley, Vishen. I’ve met him for the first time 2 years ago and this is the first time I’ve taken a picture with him. Finally! Thanks for the wonderful dinner and the brilliant idea on organizing the Meeting of the Minds, Vishen!
Hey, what do you know? It’s Mark Joyner! While Mark needs no introduction, a brief 5 minute conversation with him convinced me that he’s not only a more-than-highly-successful figure in the Internet Marketing and Self Improvement arena, he’s also very down to earth and there was no air of aloofness.
Oh boy, Edmund, you’ve got TONS more to learn from these big guys…!
Patric Chan who hails from Penang. (his wife Emily was there too) I’ve seen him spoke on stage a few times and had reason to believe he’s a very serious individual… until I got to know him informally. LOL there are many facets to a person! 🙂
L-R: Stuart Tan, Matt Harty, Mark Joyner
Stuart originally invited me to this dinner, thanks! 🙂 Will be seeing him again in Singapore in a few days from now to attend the SMART Seminar event at Expo Hall.
