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.

The Mighty Jervis Bay – our Staycation [/steɪˈkeɪʃ(ə)n/]

Hi Folks!

I have promised another update right? Here you go, second blog post of the night! INFINITICIOUS style! (Oh well … the real cause is I couldn’t sleep… GO AWAY INSOMNIA!) … anyhow, let’s get started!

DSCF4357Jervis Bay – an oceanic bay in the South coast of New South Wales. Roughly 2.5 to 3 hours drive from Sydney CBD. It is famous for its beautiful white sand beaches. (apparently the whitest in the world!?) Regardless, it is absolutely beautiful! It is surrounded by coastal, marine and hinterland National Parks offer fantastic bushwalking, cycling tracks, Indigenous culture, camping spots, cliff-top lookouts and maritime heritage. More details: Please Click Here!

I have took a few days off in Feb and we have decided to head down to this beautiful place for a staycation with another lovely couple. As you will know by now, I love road DSCF4335trips! Especially a road trip with all the pretty sceneries! We take the scenic route from Royal National Park (aka good old Natio!), drove past the sea cliff bridge and went straight down to Jervis Bay through Wollongong. We have hired a cottage by the lake at Ewrol Bay, the view over there is just breath taking! Such a relaxing place and I will highly recommend you to experience it first hand!

Alrighty … let’s see some photos of this picture perfect place!

INFINITICIOUS Photos Time! Ciao for now and please like and share this place!

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!

 

Eat – Play – Love – Melbourne Day 5

Hi Folks … another late night blogging … I have just returned home from lovely Melbourne. I have processed the photos on the plane, just in time to post for this post!

I wasn’t feeling too well this morning and hence delayed all the activities… (not that I have much planned..) The flight was at 8.30pm, we went to the famous Chapel Street for some lunch. It is like the Paddington of Sydney, but with a Melbourne taste. Girls would love it here, and you will lost them here as well!! Anyhow …

Later on in the day, I have decided to wander around St Kilda and Brighton Beach area. This is my first time to Brighton beach, this become a famous tourist attraction with those colorful bath boxes on the beach, especially among Asian tourist (!).

Alright … I am getting a bit sleepy… Let’s show you some photos from today!

Second last day in this beautiful city… I haven’t do much today. Drove an hour and a half to Mornington Peninsula, did some casual shooting on the beach and then went to the Peninsula Hot Spring! Since I couldn’t take the camera inside the bath house, I have limited snaps to show you folks!

Model Courtesy today – Claire! Thanks for joining the INFINITICIOUS trip!

 

Eat – Play – Love – Melbourne Day 3

Hi Folks … here is my daily updates of the Melbourne trip.

Due to the excessive driving and late night updating photos (…excuses), I have snoozed in until midday today … Melbourne STYLE!

Wandering around town and dropped by this awesome cafe tucked inside a South Melbourne laneway – Chez Dre. It is a French inspired cafe, food is top notch and the atmosphere is even better! Would definitely recommend!

Not too many photos today, but I have visited a very unique spot for some sunset photos. Continue reading
