Finding the way to the altitude

178170730_XS

No … this is not a post about piloting a plane or any sort (and not hiking neither). I am referring to the quote from Zig Ziglar (1926 ~ 2012) –

“Your attitude, not your aptitude, will determine your altitude…”

We tends to be forever climbing in altitude, no matter its a career ladder, social status, personal wealth etc… but what will determine our altitude? or, how high will we reach?

Ever after the industrial revolution, there is a certain “life model” has been fabricated in the western world, with an image or so called path to the “success model”. It is just like a cookie cutter, telling you that you study, earn your degree, get a good job, and progress … in which, it “should” bring you to the destination – the definition of successful. The focus on skills or aptitude is far more greater than anything else, and a lot of people trust that with a great skill-set or aptitude, that would bring you success and you will be at the altitude you wanted.

But… is that all? Why are there so many graduates from different universities all over the world every single year and we have only seen a few of the successful cases? Well, you might argue that everyone’s definition for “being successful” are different. Yes, I agree. That was what I thought in the past as well.

However, beside accepting the fact that the targets are different, attitude plays a big part in the journey as well. The quote from Zig Ziglar was echoing in my head in the last couple of days when I tried to look back on what has been happening in my life over the last couple of years. I really want to know where am I heading and what I could achieve.

Attitude – the strong word that came into mind. If two identical persons having the same skill set/aptitude, what differentiate them is the attitude towards the things that they are working on. Your mindset and attitude towards the item can leads to a very different outcome. This has a direct influence on how successful you will be – the altitude that you want to achieve.

I have reflected a lot on this quote personally and really would like to share this with you.

Be positive, be courage, be humble and less arrogant. The higher the attitude you set for yourself, the more important this is.

This is all I have for today. Ciao until next time.

Welcome to the family big girl!

Hi Folks, how have you all been? Keeping well?

We have taken delivery of our new family member last Monday! She is a Volkswagen Passat Variant (Wagon) 206TSI R-Line. We have been tossing around the idea of getting a bigger car since Princess O was born, and finally settled on this big girl. With the upsized family, little black (aka – the Tiguan) was getting a bit cramped with minimal boot space once we have put Ollie’s pram inside.

So here we are! We have landed on the up sized Passat B8 Variant, 2litre EA888 engine at 206kw with 350nm torque, ample leg room front and rear, and most importantly, a huge boot boosting 650lit of space and a shopping trolley list of safety feature.

I will (yes… will) do a detail report on the car as part of a media commitment next month, and for now, let’s look at this beautiful baby!!!!

It has been a long time …

G’day folks! How have you all been? It has been a long time since my last update.

My life has been travelling at 200 miles an hour over the past couple of months, let’s sum it up in the list below:

I have got married!

I have moved on to another job!

I have graduated from my Executive MBA degree!

Our little princess O has arrived!

We have been running around and adjusting our schedule to suit Princess O since then, the dust has settled slightly now and I am trying to put my head above the water so you folks won’t forget about me!!!

Let’s start with a few photos that have been taken during the easter break with Queeny C! Some hearty maternity photos 8 weeks before we met Princess O.

Ciao for now and stay tuned!

Family Loves – Visiting Hong Kong – 2015

Hi Folks!

How are you all? Hope you are all keeping well and surviving the heat in Sydney.

I am currently travelling in Hong Kong, visiting this place that I have once called home.

Hong Kong – once a British Colony for 99 years and handed back to China (PRC) back in 1997. I have spent the first 16 years of my life here before I have moved to Australia, she is one of the most busy, vibrant city in the world. Very rich in her own culture, blended with the Western and Eastern tastes. She is a city full of stories… the good, the bad and the teary ones. Let’s look at this city from my lens and tell me what you feel?

Enjoy the photos below … please share the loves with your friends on social media and like this page! Your likes and comments are my motivation!

 

What is in my camera bag? Fujifilm Chapter.

Hi Folks! I have received a few messages from you guys asking some very similar questions, so I have decided to answer them in two different blog post. The first question is what camera gear did I brought with me for the Melbourne trip and how I have found this in comparison to my Nikon gears before. The second question is what camera pre-sets I have used for the photos. Let me start with the gear questions first! Here we come the good old “What is in my camera bag?” post!

As you can see from the photo above, here are my travel gears. All can pack into the little Continue reading

An apology note … to all that follow INFINITICIOUS

Hi Folks!

It has been a while (couple of weeks actually) that I haven’t been able to update Infiniticious! But don’t worry, I am not going to abandon this little baby. It has been very hectic with my work and study schedule, and I have scarified all my personal time for that. At the same time, I have been quite sick lately and also moved to a new place!

But everything should be back on track now and we should expect regular updates again! I would like to take this chance to say thank you to all that messaged me in the past few weeks to ask about the update of the blog and to whom that cheered me up!

A big thank you and hugzzzzz from me!

Stay tuned.
