So I can save it!
Until next time....
About fifteen years ago, I was approached by a certain music producer to become a so-called "Idol" in Taiwan. The idea of getting rich and famous when you were fifteen was out of this world. I couldn't wait to jump on the opportunity. At the time I was obsessed with BBD, Bobby Brown, the rest of the New Edition, and of course...The New Jack City soundtrack. So the thought of being a Taiwanese version of a R&B artist blew my mind away. But there was one hold back. I was terrified! I was scared cuz I knew I didn't have the training nor the passion for the industry. At least not yet. For crying out loud, I don't even have my driver's license. Nonetheless, I was ready for the opportunity.
If my memory serves me right, it was my mother who said ," You must finish your education in the US before doing anything you want to do." Being the good boy that I am, I agreed to her terms and turned down the opportunity to move to Taiwan. The opportunity was dismissed but the seed was already planted.
15 years later, I am back in Taiwan and about take another step towards becoming an artiste instead of just an actor. First of all, I'm not a trained musician and I can't sing like LeeHom. However, I believe I can carry a tune and do have a good ear for music. Tell you the truth, I love acting and I can do this for the rest of my life. Like the NBA players who have basketballs tattooed on their bodies to show their love for the game, I have Stella Adler's teachings tattooed in my heart. Just the other day, I heard somebody say," you don't choose your work but your work chooses you." At first I didn't know what that meant. I was always a true believer of being the master of your own universe and I still am. This is why I quit my job in advertising to pursue acting and why I moved from HK back to Taiwan. Why move out of HK to Taiwan? you might ask. The answer is simple.... opportunity. The opportunity to take on new acting challenges presented itself and I took it.
Exactly one year later, music came knockin' on my door again. Thanks to my friend Park, I am now part of a project that might change my perception of this industry. I've always thought that an actor should just be an actor and a singer should just be a singer. "Know your role," I would say to my friends. Being the Taurean that I am, I'm extremely stubborn when it comes to this principle. However, after listening to Park's music, I see flashes and images of how this project can evolve into something special. I might be skeptical at times but that's the actor in me trying to "cock block" the creative flow. I'm not being biased because he's my friend, but I really think PARK is talented.
Hi everyone, Definitely long time no blog. My apologies to Pat ...AGAIN! A lot has happened since I blogged in December...but I think that goes for everyone. It's been 4 months!!! Tell you the truth, I just don't know what to blog about after this long break from Alivenotdead. Then again, Alivenotdead is like family. You go away for awhile to do what you have to do but home is always where the heart is. I'm not trying to be cheezy but I personally feel like I've grown with this community since I got a call from Jason Tobin to join 1092 days ago. Wait....1092 days??!!! DAMN!!!! I think AnD should give out medals for members of this status ....heheh...jk guys...I'm am extremely honored to be a part of this great family.

I've always seen friends or friends of friends go to Thailand and do the infamous elephant ride. All I can say is I wouldn't do it again. It's much better to watch them from the ground...especially if you are afraid of heights!
I just realized that I was much happier before I got on.
Trying to climb the gentle giant....no one showed us how to do it ...the dude just pointed to the top and told me to climb. I've never felt so vulnerable as a human being. She was one powerful creature.
Here we go!
We had to act like we were having fun, but to tell you the truth....I was scuuuurrrrred.
After a humbling experience like that I had to get myself some....
and of course...
Meet my new friends...
Can u tell they had a blast with their new toy?
My first time in Singapore I had to put these on...
This was about 2 months ago...Sorry but not a big fan of lime green laces.
So check out the flick peeps! Watch how these idiot brothers try to get their hands on 5 MILLION DOLLARS!
Wow what a month! I was ready to fly home to LA for the holidays until I got a phone call from my Singaporean family telling me that they want me to do this movie called "The Will." I was like..hmmm....ok sure! Why not! What happens next is two weeks of hardcore film making "Amazing Race" style! Very tiring and challenging but I loved every single minute of it.
The movie also stars "Ah- Bu "AKA Brian Chou! I'm sure many of you recognize him from the TV show Adventure King. Can you tell we are related?
I don't think this place is accepting anymore admissions. Thank goodness.
The cast of "The Will." Yes...they even snuck in a press conference at the end of our shoot. Talk about wasting no time.
It was great working with Michelle Chong again! I had so much fun slapping her this time!
We even managed to travel to Phuket for a Street Fighter session.
I hate my job.
"Can I have some mo' sir?"
Peace at last....
Here's a sneak of Part 2....
Halloween is coming up and I'm sure everyone is trying to figure what to wear to scare the kids.I was never into scaring kids cuz I'm a kid myself and I don't like to be scared. Here's a tip :When in doubt...being a Super Hero is always a good choice.
That was soooo 2008!!
Meet the Super Sibs.
I WISH I COULD WEAR THIS EVERYDAY.
Can't wait till Halloween!! Have Fun and be safe peeps!
Here are a few Big Things you need to succeed!
Big book to develop Big Brain
Big Balls...or in this case, one is enough.
BIG GUNS!!...You definitely need one of these if you want to take over the world. ( can't wait to see this mutha up close)
Oh and of course.... Big Man...
GO SEED!! This has to be the biggest mango seed I've come across.
Sorry for the random thoughts. Today is definitely one of those "I feel weird" days.
