Jim Carrey is a hippie...a good hippie

and for those of you who don't have 26 minutes, check out:

and yep, I totally agree with him on the point that you can fail doing what you don't like doing... it's been pretty much my whole life where everyone around me criticizes what I do, saying I should find a stable job like in a bank or something and just focus on that. Yet, no one remembers 2008 when bankers would get phone calls saying "you're done, pack up and leave".

Anyway, it's a very strange world we live in where is nothing more than what we perceive it to be. To say a fixed-salary job is safe is actually saying . I have nothing against people who have fixed-salary jobs, I just feel that the world is changing and now with the Internet and all these new business opportunities, it really just takes a bit of creativity and willingness to be pro-active to earn money. Sure, it's easier said than done especially when you're first starting out as a blank sheet of paper, but it's like acceleration, instead of starting at a speed and staying constant, you start a bit slower but as you accelerate things start going crazy and you pretty much don't know how fast you can go before breaking down. Kind of like fixed interest vs compound interest.

Anyway, so I recently returned from Sydney and I must say, I haven't seen so much blue sky at one go in my life! Well, then again I had a lot of time staring at the sky as I constantly had to wait for trains and buses while I was there. Man I am totally spoiled by Hong Kong's public transportation. Nonetheless, it was a great trip and I even though I had to spend the last day in bed with food poisoning (too many raw oysters followed with heavy duty Max Brenner chocolate), it was worth the eye-opening. At least now I know what it feels like to sit at a train station for 28 minutes waiting for your train.........
