Adobe Creative Cloud Introduction Workshop at Canvas, Damansara Perdana

I've been using Adobe Photoshop back in the year 2001 when it was still at version 6.0. Soon after that, I've switched to Adobe Photoshop 7.0 and actively been designing a few things mostly my own desktop wallpaper, cd label and edit photos to be uploaded into my Friendster account. Those were the days and I still remember that I always asked my secondary school mate to teach me how to use Adobe Photoshop and almost get to learn about Adobe After Effect but unfortunately he and his family has left the town after our SPM year. Entering college, I had entirely stopped using Adobe Photoshop and only be able to start using it when I started my so called 'blogging career' in the year 2008 thanks to Nathalie a.k.a Nath De SingingCoconut. From version 7.0, I jumped straight to CS3 then CS4 and now I'm currently using Adobe Photoshop CS5, Adobe Illustrator CS5 and Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 4. I have yet to try CS6 but after you have finish reading my blog post, I'm sure not only myself but including you would try it out.

Guinness St.Patrick 'March More Fun' Celebration!

The first quarter of the year is ending soon. Seems like this year gonna be a short year for me as there's a lot of activities and planning that I've done for the coming days ahead. Anyway, on this particular month I was invited to attend the Guinness St.Patrick 'March More Fun' Celebration. 

Most of you might have read my earlier blog post here about Guinness to be hosting Malaysia's biggest St.Patrick's pub crawl and yes I was given a privilege to ride on the shutter bus from Soul Out Mont Kiara all the way to Changkat Bukit Bintang. It was raining heavily at the meet up point but it didn't stop us from continuing the pub crawl journey.

Looking for Home Tuition or Private Tutor?

I still remember back then when I was still a student in Polytechnic Kota Kinabalu, I used to teach tuition to secondary students just to pay off my daily expenses especially paying for petrol to travel back and forth from my house to college. To summarize the whole teaching experience, it was fun but sometimes frustrating when dealing with naughty students who just didn't care about learning and spend most of their time at tuition playing with their handphones or chit-chatting with their friends.

At first, it wasn't easy to get students but thanks to my sister who had already have a wide contact of parents and a few years experience of teaching tuition, she managed to bring a group of students for me to teach. Thank God for that but what about for those who didn't have this kind of relationship or contacts? Well, I think it will be pretty tough but what if I tell you that there's a way where you can find a tutoring job through out the entire nation? The answer is simple, continue reading after the break...

Spaghetti Grill at Paradigm Mall

Last month, my friend Ashley Mah has left to Wellington, New Zealand to further her study. On a Saturday which was two days before her flight, we had lunch together along with my girlfriend. Cut the story short, we had our lunch at Spaghetti Grill in Paradigm Mall. It was our first time dining there and weren't very sure if it's good or not.

Spaghetti Grill at Paradigm Mall
On the same day, there was the TuneTalk MIMMAFC Tryouts at the Paradigm Mall but I wasn't excited at all after seeing the amateurs rumbling around with thick gloves and pretty boy faces.

ONE FC: Returns of Warriors at Stadium Putra

Last month, I was given a great opportunity by ONE FC Asia's largest Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) organization, to witness the event on 2nd of February 2013. It was actually my very second time to watch a MMA event after the Mayhem 2 organized by Muayfit a few years back. Although I was sitting quite a distance away from the ring but I did managed to capture a full length video of lightweight bout between our Malaysian fighter, Peter Davis and Leo Krishna from Indonesia.

If you can't view the video above, you can watch it at

ONE Fighting Championship (ONE FC), Asia's largest Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) organization, wowed the sold-out crowd in attendance at Stadium Putra with ONE FC: Return Of Warriors. The event was ONE FC's second in Malaysia and fans were treated to a night of unforgettable action as ONE FC warriors battled inside the famed ONE FC cage. A new ONE FC Featherweight Champion was crowned as Honorio Banario defeated Eric Kelly via TKO. The two Filipino warriors went back and forth in a striking duel. The finish came in the fourth round as Banario won the striking battle with a punch that staggered Kelly.
