Your name

This happens to almost everyone.

Met this buncha dudes the other day, I can remember so well that one of them is a Marketing Exec for a major automobile company and the other helps his mum who is a .com millionaire. Both have sisters that are still in high school and both are avid arsenal supporters.

Other than their dayjobs I actually remembered stuff about their family and personal preferences. Problem is, I still cant remember their names. Or faces, hmm. Nothing's more awkward then introducing yourself to a person you already know. Added with the fact that you actually knew that they had sisters and possibly their office's location, you also knew that they belong to that small group of people that aren't embarrassed about certain things, like admitting they support Arsenal.

Btw congratulations to Cesc Fabregas on his first medal after 48 hours as a Barcelona player.

So I was in Bali for a few days. First company trip so I guess I can check that off my list of "normal things everyone goes through" sandwiched in between taking a piss and forgetting someone's name (or face).

It's a beautiful place, my first time at a beach holiday retreat without my family and all I can say is finding magic mushrooms is a lot easier than a plate of nasi padang (indonesian food in indonesia is kinda disappointing) Some guy even approached my friend for an "ecstasy + marijuana + gigolo" package which was pretty funny.

At a normal company or any SME you can think of, these trips are suppose to tighten the "bond" between employees and encourage "social integration". Most people would say this is just another way for the bosses to suck up to their employees.

However, I do think on some levels this shit really works. Everybody has their hair down and you talk about and feel different things towards your colleagues and superiors during a time like this. You find out things like how the girl that sits in front of me is still practically living in Ipoh as she refuses to leave, and one of my bosses once puked while taking a shower after a crazy night out. The girl that sits behind me however, lost her virginity in Bali. Haha.

Please don't get the idea that Fazil Fuad is rollin' with 'em bitchez at work as they're 2 out of 4 girls in my entire workplace. That's including the cleaning lady.

Anyway here's Bali.

The dust has settled.

.. just when you thought I did.

Firstly, I need to thank all those who still came back to check after all these months of nothingness. Thank you for still being interested in my random rants about the ex girlfriend, random musings/verbal diarrhoea and of course, the occasional photograph. I never check the stats, so the comments and chatbar shout-outs were enough for me. Thank you thank you thank you, I hope Santa's good to you.

Reason for being on hiatus all this while is mostly due to the vast amount of changes in my life, I actually once felt that I grew out of this, I thought of myself as lacking the attention from the people/things/objects/aliens around me but I kinda had a revelation a few days ago when it hit me that I just had this natural tendency to share, whether it's a revolutionary idea, an article or just a video of cats staring at shit/you. Nope, I won't care what you think or whether you've seen it and it's better for me if you don't know why exactly I bothered to embed a video titled "Inception Animals". Then I remembered that it was neither the girl nor my compulsive need to observe things that was behind the need to capture and share, but it was the feeling of being the most comfortable/complete when I had my own private space to do so. I guess it was better if you had a choice to view it rather than seeing my name popping out everywhere on your news feed.

Okay fine, there was just one reason really, and it's called Facebook.

The mercurial, the outrageous, the brilliant Paul Arden.

Being right is based upon knowledge and experience and is often provable.

Knowledge comes from the past, so it's safe. It is also out of date. It's the opposite of originality.

Experience is built from solutions to old situations are probably different from the present ones, so that old solutions will have to be bent to fit new problems (and possibly fit badly). Also the likelihood is that, if you've got the experience, you'll probably use it.

This is lazy.

Experience is the opposite of being creative. If you can prove you're right, you're set in concrete. You cannot move with the times or with other people.

Being right is also being boring. Your mind is closed. You are not open to new ideas. You are rooted in your own rightness, which is arrogant. Arrogance is a valuable tool, but only if used very sparingly.

Worst of all, being right has a tone of morality about it. To be anything else sounds weak or fallible, and people who are right would hate to be thought fallible.

So : it's wrong to be right, because people who are right are rooted in the past, rigid-minded, dull and smug.

There is no talking to them.

I'll be right back.

I've succumbed to taking pictures of my room.

I need time to breathe.

I've made a point to challenge myself with my time here, to grow as a PERSON and as a creative.

I've recently concluded that it's starting to be slightly overwhelming.

I've to make it clear that it is me that has to be fed, and not being consumed entirely.

What do I do what do I do what do I do?

Breathe.
