5KM Fun Run And New Year’s Eve 2018

Ended the year 2017 with a 5KM Fun Run at The Curve with Vinnie!

I don’t train for runs (it’s been years), so I was pleasantly surprised to complete it with little difficulty (35 minutes 40 seconds)

It’s also been years since I last go out for a countdown in a public area. I would have preferred to stay home but hey, I can do that anytime of the year 🙂

Happy New Year everyone!

Thailand Internet Business Workshop

November 20 – 27. It’s been an amazing 8 days with David Cavanagh, team and students from around the world – all here in Pattaya, Thailand!
I’ve known David for exactly 10 years, and when I heard he was going to do a week-long workshop I decided to come on over to support.
Now the training was designed for newbies and frankly I didn’t expect to learn much from it (more like be there to see how he conducts the training and… I had to see for myself how he would last 8 days straight as the main speaker and trainer)
So imagine my surprise as I scribbled the ‘newbie’s workbook’ with notes and product ideas I think can fill up for the first Quarter of 2018! Learned his sales techniques – which I find is owed greatly to his transparency and being straight-up, no B.S. from the start. You don’t see that often these days from marketing teachers, almost a lost art.
Just as well, he’s supported by a small but great team of people – Roger Bourdon, Eric Zeitoun, Nisarat Cavanagh and a few but quality guest speakers he brought on board.
The participants are from around the world – Australia, UK, US, India, Hong Kong, Germany, just to name some.

Right after the Graduation night, I recorded my review and experience of the Thailand Internet Business Workshop.

Another video compilation of the week-long event:
Not a dull moment, I attended ALL the sessions and I believe so did most if not all the participants, that shows how captivating each of David’s sessions is.
Also thanks for giving me the opportunity to be a guest speaker on the last day – that came as a surprise to me considering I came here to participate like everyone else and sit in the workshop!
Overall I had an amazing time and wealth of learning opportunities. Also celebrated by 31st birthday while in workshop, haha

All in all, it’s been a great, mind-blowing experience and I’d like to be back again next round… and I’ll be bringing people over!

Kanyin Author Gathering

Adrian Kok and Everlyn Ling invited me for their 15th year anniversary on running Kanyin Publications. To think I almost passed this up, as this was just one day after my own office warming party – and I had to work on a launch this weekend!

The event was held at Eco Sanctuary and wow, the landscape and houses here are gorgeous! The classy interior and environment made me realize I need to 10X my thinking and income if I were to afford next level lifestyle… haha!

It was a few hours, and I got to meet other Kanyin authors as well. Amazing experience overall!

Musemancer Office Warming Party

It’s the third year since I founded Musemancer! Unlike last year I decided to go for something different and not Halloween Party. Because we had moved into a new office not long ago, we had an office warming party to celebrate both the new milestone and our anniversary.

The Friday night event was limited to our business friends and workshop students, and we kept it relatively simple. Boy, the food ran out quick though… not only everyone we invited showed up, we had an additional six guests from the Philippines led by Dexter Pagnaliwan!

Thanks everyone for showing up and being part of our journey as Musemancer grows 🙂

World E-Commerce Summit

It was a short notice, and I booked a last minute flight to Singapore to attend the World E-Commerce Summit. In part to support Jaz Lai‘s event, and also to meet and network with people here.

Frankly I had nothing much beyond a vague agenda and because I’m not into E-Commerce, I had little expectations. So imagine my surprise at how productive the weekend was – meeting my Coaching Client (and in the process of closing another!), getting things done with my behind-the-scenes business partner, hanging out with Isabel, and also meeting new and old faces alike!

Suddenly I wished the weekend was longer.
