Dallas – Higher Purpose Mastermind

Initially I was going to head back to Malaysia on 19th May. Then Oliver Talamayan informed me of a Mastermind just around the corner – 19th – 22nd May in Dallas, Texas.

So I made a detour and extended my stay. I might as well, since I’m already on the other side of the planet I should make the most of my trip here.

Unlike the Vegas and LA chapter, I was in the house most of the time; I didn’t really go anywhere else beyond the convenience stores and restaurants within walking distance.

The 3 days proved to be productive and made up for the past two weeks of just going from place to place.

The Mastermind had just about 9-10 people; on Day 2 Justin Beasley was invited to share his insights on E-Commerce. His prime record to date: $1.7 Million sales in 50 days!

I had my next level High Ticket and business game plan nailed down while I was here, and with a 30 25 hour flight back to Malaysia I found the time to finally read up two books (Trust Funnel and DotComSecrets) cover to cover, something I had put off for a long time.

… And that’s it for my US trip this year!

Los Angeles Revisited – The Americana Life!

After the Bug Free Mastermind and a week in Vegas, Isabel, Adrian and I went back to Los Angeles and this was to be the second part of our trip.

This was to be more of a leisure trip and we started our LA chapter with a BMW 6-series rented from Sixt.

3.0L twin-turbo engine.. gotta love the sound of the engine screaming when you hit the Sports+ mode!

Car is wide and because almost everything was inverted, it took more than a day to get used to driving here (gotta say, drivers in LA are worse than in Malaysia!)

We visited Winter and Anastasia first and checked out the Griffith Observatory. Huey swung by later.

The following day we met up with Huey again in Hollywood…

LACMA at night

Revisited the Universal Studios. This time I got to see more of it as we had almost the whole day here!

Posing with the 6-series…

Concluded the LA trip with a visit to Paul Hoffman‘s place in Marina del Rey.

So glad to see more of LA this time!

It was time for Isabel and Adrian to fly back to Singapore. But for me, I still have one more place to go – Dallas…

Las Vegas – Bug Free Mastermind

Checked into The Palms Spring here in Vegas and here for a week!

I was here chiefly for the Annual Bug Free Mastermind and since we arrived early, we visited the Grand Canyon via the Sundance heli tour. (something that I didn’t get to do on my first time here 6 years ago)

View was breathtaking – literally!

Also got to go to the shooting range at Battlefield Las Vegas, to shoot my dream gun – the MG42!

Some shopping at North Premium Outlet (and wow the prices were premium too)

One day before the Annual Bug Free Mastermind began, we were treated to a Zappos HQ tour.

Followed by the main event for the next five days – packed with Conference Hall presentations, parties and dinners…

I didn’t attend all of them; I was sick on the first two days of the event and because I don’t drink that means you won’t find me at the pubs and bars. Still got out some good connections from the event nonetheless.

We ended the Vegas trip with a visit to the Old Strip, Fermont Street and watched the Penn and Teller live performance (second time for me!)

Next stop: Los Angeles revisited…

Visiting Temples In Siam Reap!

I had always wanted to visit Cambodia chiefly for its main attraction, the historically famed Angkor Wat. After putting this off for a couple of years hoping I could find someone or a group of people to join me, I decided I waited enough… and just flew over on my own!

I started the tour at 5:00 in the morning to catch sunrise at the temple. And for the next five hours, not only did I cover Angkor Wat, I had also toured six other surrounding temples. One of the temple sites, Ta Phrom, was used to filmed the 2001 movie Tomb Raider.

Cambodia recognizes the US Dollar currency – and things here are not exactly cheap! For example, a can of coke goes for $1.50 – $2.00 here. I hired the same taxi driver from the airport to do both the small and big tour for $80 – the tuk-tuk tour would’ve been half that price. And left on my own, I am a shitty negotiator. Haha!

Cambodia trip continues in Phnom Penh…

Professional Photoshoot Day

It’s time to update my photos for business use. Wasn’t satisfied with the ones I took 3 years ago as it was done on a bad hair day and with lack of preparation.

And since the photography fees aren’t that much more, I figured I might as well rope my Musemancer team in for individual photoshoot right at our office!

These are just some of the hundreds of photos taken. I’ve not taken so many photos of myself in my life, it makes me respect models and photographers more as they make it look easy!

I’m happier with how the photos turned out this time – a combination of good hair day and planning the poses in advance really helped. And I’ve never looked this good on camera, even if I say so myself. Haha! (Again, newfound respect for professional photographers and models… I just got a tiny glimpse in their daily work routine)

You’ll be seeing photos like these on my sales pages, videos, and sites in the coming weeks and months… it’s going to last me a long time this time!
