Young Cancer Patient NEEDs HELP

On a serious note, while we count our blessings it's also our duty to remember those who are less fortunate. Good friend Brunei Photographer -Jan shim , forwarded me the following news clipping about Desmond Chin, a 20 year old Bruneian from Seria diagnosed with leukaemia in April 2005 and suffers from T-cell acute lymphoblastic leukaemia, a type of cancer which causes more than normal quantities of white blood cells:

Found out how you can help young Desmond HERE

May God bless Desmond with strength and speedy recovery.

Quarter Life Crisis Update

I recevied a pleasant surprise in the form of email from the Author or Quarter Life Crisis, an essay written for PLAY magazine in April 2001.

I remember very vividly receiving it in the form of forwarded mail in the early year 200X. Although impress with the insights it did not felt like as if it was relevant to my live at that point and quickly deleted it.

Fast forward 2005, a flashback occur. I remember telling myself “Hey this is what that mail was talking about!” Then my only instinct was to google “Quarter-life Crisis” – and some random search appearded. Unfortunately, sites such as the following were all unable to cite the original author:


My only choice then to Credit the Author as Unknown like many great poems and short essays.

I am truly excited and happy to hear from the author of this great piece, where I found comfort in during a period of uncertainty in my life. Now that i know that Brenda Della Cassa the authour of the fabulous Cinderella Was a liar is the original author, i can give the replace the “by unknown” to by bella Della Cassa. YEAH!

Ok got to run……..talk later!
