[1: 1,843 of 10,000] I Just Met Grace VanderWaal

In Article on December 30, 2016 at 5:35 AM

I appreciate watching auditions that I can sacrifice sleeping early and totally lose track of time. I see the magic happening right before my eyes. Singers usually give me a different inspiration because I could feel their soulsĀ speaking right through mine and it is even more amazing if the contestant just sang a song she just wrote.

I was browsing from YouTube and I stumble upon Grace VanderWaal’s audition, a 12 years old charming kid from New York, a songwriter, plays the ukulele, and has a very distinct and beautiful voice. After digging further from her audition at America’s Got Talent 2016 (Season 11), I later found out that she won.

When she was first asked if she could win, her answer was beautiful, she said, “Miracles can happen, so possibly!”


I am very happy for her.

She’s young, she could feel the pressure, and yet she didn’t give up, instead she was even more motivated to write new musics to share to the world. She’s such a positive energy and may we all have her grace.


In case you’re wondering, I just purchased her album from iTunes and listening to it while typing this post. I got to support the brave artists who are not afraid to create and share.


[1: 1,408 of 10,000] Winning Team

In Review on March 8, 2015 at 2:27 PM

I watched Moneyball again and here is what I contemplated this time –


Billy Beane (Brad Pitt) and Peter Brand (Jonah Hill) dared to assemble a winning team. They disregarded the qualities of the individuals that made them a liability, instead they focused on what can they do to be contributor to a winning team. It’s amazing how selected people are able to find out the gem in somebody, and even more amazing is to group this misfits and believe it works.

Billy summed it all when he said, “You may not look like a winning team, but you are one. So, play like one tonight.”

The movie shows the real life, we have baggage that we can’t seem to let go, we have responsibilities to our loved ones, we care how we made mistakes from past decisions, and we get hit by losing! When we hit the bottom, there is no other options but to keep standing up, find new ways, and dare – well ideally anyway.

They say we are alive right now because we have a purpose. I am so scared of life right now that I wanted to give up and I don’t want to see my purpose get realised because I loss and got hurt. I know that I know what I want but because of my pain, my dreams become blurry and it’s harder for me to move on and trust myself. The movie was a great reminder, I am a misfit to where I have been, and all I have to do is find the team that would make the team a winner with my contribution, what I am simply saying is I will find where I belong, because as much as I get blinded that I can do it alone, I couldn’t and I shouldn’t.
