Quite a while since my last blog…
Been waiting for it?
Yeah, I did mention 33% of my time is for my family… From mid Jan til mid April, I can say most of my time was spent with my family… however, from May onwards, I will have a busy schedule…Filming starts soon and I need to promote my 2 films and many other jobs are waiting for me too! After staying in Brunei for quite sometime, I know it won’t be easy for me to adjust myself to all the workload that is about to come but with a strong willpower, I know I can do it and once I am back to work, I will take it seriously and FOCUS and of course, i need your POWER and SUPPORT ok!!!
You know what?
It’s a special day today…
18th of April is actually the birth date of my mother.
9 years ago was the last time celebrating my mum’s birthday with her and I could still remember that day as not the same as any other birthday celebrations. Everyone of us cherished that moment because as much as we don’t wanna believe it, deep inside our heart, we knew it could be the last year celebrating this special day. All of us including my mum were in great pain in the inside but we tried our best to be strong on the outside.
Our gifts for her during that year was different from what we have given her in the past too! We bought a scarf because she was too thin during that time and the scarf was for her to help her cover her wrinkled neck. We also gave her a photo frame with pictures showing happy memories of our family and had a very healthy Steamboat meal at home. One thing that we did not wish to happen was when her eyes turned red with tears when she was cutting her cake and taking pictures.
It was one of the most difficult moments in my life and thus, after she left us, i just got stronger and stronger and cherish life more than ever!
Family became the first priority in my life… I haven’t got much time to accompany them in the past 6 years but I know that I have to change before I regret in the future! As you all know, since I have been staying in Brunei most of the time recently, I hope all of you can understand my situation but of course, it doesn’t mean that I will just focus on my life in Brunei! I just wanna make a better use of my time while i still can and yeah, some sacrifices need to be made but as long as I think it’s worth it, I am willing to sacrifice that little bit and hope all of you support me!
I know some of you might miss me when I’m away and some of you might be unhappy if I don’t turn up in a particular event but please understand that I have my own reasons and I really miss my family like how u all miss me sometimes :-) To share with you, I’m so grateful to have the chance to go worship my mum 3 times already this year as my mother’s ashes is not placed in Brunei. I brought her some of her favourite snacks and flowers and most importantly, I wanna update her with my life! I let her know that a Super Mum like her got a Super Child like GKC! People always tell me my mother will be very proud of me if she is still alive but no one really knows how proud I am to be my mother’s son!
Dale Carnegie once said, “”Success is getting what you want; happiness is wanting what you get.” Many people might want me to challenge myself to be successful but i know my mother want me to accept what’s given to me so please allow me to keep a ‘Balance’ and i promise to do my best on both parts!
