Putrajaya Morning Drive

Right after party night, comes an early morning drive – what a happening weekend! Again, it’s not all the time I find an occasion to dress better than usual. The morning drive was just as rare.

Thus the morning drive doubled as both photography takes and also driving lesson for Charis! She’s got a driving license but rarely drove as she worked in Singapore for a few years.

Here’s driving lesson in progress with the Ultimate Driving Machine…

Nina Ray’s Birthday Party

It’s not all the time I get invited to an occasion to dress well! Attended Nina Ray’s 41st birthday party at a bungalow in KL.

Also here’s a video of me and Charis dancing Salsa. The result of my 1-hour crash course training šŸ™‚ But of course, Charis is a more advanced dancer – she was just dancing to my pace.

BMW Swap

Nearly a year ago I bought my Bimmer. 11 months ago to be exact.

BMW316i

It was a humble F30 316i – humble by BMW standards, in that it’s basic when compared to its higher-end counterparts like the 320i and 328i.

While my ultimate aim is the technology-advanced BMW i8, I’ve sought after a slight upgrade – the BMW F30 LCI 318i Luxury line.

Bought used this time, it’s almost as good as new. Driven for no more than 28 days and under 2,000 km mileage, I took up a rich man’s generosity to get his car.

He’s too big for this car, and he decided he should just go for a big Porsche instead (don’t worry about him, he bought 5 of the same carsĀ so clearly he’s doing very, very, very well…)

The interior is classy, complete with brown leather and wood furnishing.

There’s been a huge criticism on the 3-pot engine – even the 316i runs on a 4-cylinder. But given my driving habits – I seldom hit up the sports mode and most of the time I go between PJ and Puchong – this works good enough.

Surprisingly, the 318i clocks 0.3 seconds faster than the 316i on the century sprint despite the 3-cylinder engine, and is slightly more economical on the fuel when in Eco Pro mode.

As far as the swag factor goes, the Alpine white exterior underlined by chrome face lift, combined with the classy interior is a big win for me.

So yes, I traded in my gray Bimmer… albeit with a heavy heart. She’s been with me for no more than a year no doubt, but probably because I’ve experienced heck a lot of breakthroughs in the short time I drove her, and that I took care of her pretty well.

But life continues.

Hustle’s got a new color.

ATV Ride At ATV Adventure Park

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 dangerousĀ 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!

More action next week… šŸ™‚

Hustling At Musemancer

Happening month!Ā As soon as I got back from the US, it was hustle time.

Some peeps at Musemancer were leaving so I went full throttle with my recruitment drive – in a short notice, I brought in 3 Interns and 2 full-timers, with 2 more on the way next month.

I was also fortunate to have someĀ brilliant marketing minds paying us a visit – first a weekend brainstorm discussion among our immediate Internet Marketers.

And in the following weeks peeps from Singapore – Clement Wong & Cynthia Khoo, Isabel Nicole Wong, Wilson Lau, Cavan Chiam, and Douglas Lee came over… albeit at different times.

And earlier today Khai, Yuenn and I reviewed the story-telling sessions from the Musemancer Team so we could single out the best angles and hooks for our upcoming niche products.

A lot of action at the office, to make up for the month-long away from Malaysia. šŸ™‚
