Putting Yourself Out There… Online

I was having a chat with my brother a few days back and I suddenly had a moment of clarity and revelation (doesn’t happen as often as I would like it to!) as I was talking about portraying yourself online.

“The Internet’s the Devil.. Facebook is the Devil… Social Networking is the Devil”… 😉 (Along the train of thoughts from Mama Boucher in Waterboy)

I realise a lot of people when asked questions regarding online privacy, thinks of sites where you place your personal information and thoughts as being risky places where all sorts of strangers may get to find out more about yourself.

Well… ironically, these may also be the people who willingly battle day to day details of blogging or sharing ideas online.  The general idea is that as long as they talk about things that is happening around them, then they are safe from presenting private information. 

Well, for me blogging (or social networking) is a way of “cloning” yourself! – Putting your personality online to reach out to friends or anybody whom you allow to read your blog or profile.

WHY DO PEOPLE DO THAT?

Because as much as we like to socialise, we have very little time to do that in our own physical-self.  There is only one of us, after-all.  And we can only spend so much time with 1 friend at a time.

I treat it like cloning because your profile or status is reaching out to multiple people at one go.  It isn’t necessary a bad thing, but you need to be aware of who reads it or how so many different friends react to your posting.  (Which coincidentally, makes things even more interesting).

CLONING A FAKE!

Also, having multiple networks isn’t faking it, it’s about how you wish to portray yourself in each network of friends.

It is no different from the fact that you dress up and put on extensive make up when you go for a chic party as compared to going for a Sunday picnic.  Or perhaps when you talk to colleagues and when you have casual outings with your friends.

We all talk differently in different situation… and so does our blog or blogs.

It’s about how you portray yourself.  Well, I love it cause I enjoy a multi-faceted lifestyle where I can always fallback on one or the other when I need to.  It’s all down to how I feel at the time.

And you know what’s the best part when all these “clones” of myself is doing their work online?  Well, I get to enjoy the things I truly enjoy in my own physical and real self without worrying about how I should portray myself in real-life!

Hehehe…

Artistry 2009 – Liquid Sensations and Rhythm Persuasions

IMG_7938

Isn’t that a most beautiful sight?!!!

Yup, that magic happened last night at our event for Artistry 2009.  It was an amazing event in all accounts even though I got to see it from ground up.  It was a spectacular sight to see the backdrop, ambience and details in the full glory of lights and rhythm that shook the whole place.

title The line-up of performances backed by an environment of pure rhythmic and pleasurable beats left no chance for a normal heart beat as DJ Milinka, One Buck Short, Homies, Dominique Tsai, Fatman Scoop, Ying Yang Twins and DJ Mr. Sam rocked the house down from one end of the show to the other.  Lumiscense provided an unequalled template of pure projection and lighting pleasures that left little room to ask for more.

Enjoy the pictures here, but words and pics do not come close to describing the euphoric nature of the entire experience that is ARTISTRY 2009 – The truly inspiring, worldwide phenomenon that is the Global Art of Mixing!

Tiring Couple of Weeks Ended Up on a High!

Sigh… I must get rid of some of this negativity!  Hmm… should live to my believes (read the title bar on top!).  These couple of weeks were pretty tiring getting things together at work, one thing after another.

But the celebratory event of Artistry 2009, sure changed the tone for the finale of this period.  I shall blog about that in my next update.

In anycase, I’m just glad to be able to pace myself for a while.  I know a couple more exciting events are coming up soon, I’ll just have to get back on my feet again running. (sigh… might still be for a little while longer). 

Tomorrow on leave! So glad to be doing something really different for a change cause I am taking little Celeste for her first play!  She’ll be playing Cinderella!  I’ll be posting pics and a documentary of how it will turn out!

😉 Ciao!

IPhone is CRAP

After a long string of mental battle, between trying to convince myself it was cool to own and IPhone and to get the freaking thing to work it like how I was given the fantasy of thinking… I finally decided the thing was CRAP!!!

I’ve been having so much issue with the phone… when it’s downloading email, I have to sit and wait…  because you can’t do anything then!  The freaking phone lags even more than my grandma walking around the house on a bad day!  Often I have to go and get a cup coffee and come back and maybe do some work on my computer… go out have a chat, then come back and then, my phone would give me a shy smile and bing and says it was ready to be touched! …stupid…

And the word “No Service” has been burnt to my forehead… well… at least from the number of times I banged my head on the phone trying to get a freakin’ “service” out of it!!!  “I’ll serve you alright!!!! I’ll serve you a glass of cold water… straight from the tap!!!!” … stupid…
