Finding life’s passion. An inspiring talk by my hero Dr Jane Goodall this morning in Kuala Lumpur.
Dr Jane Goodall has been my inspiration since I was young. When I was 20 years old, I went to Tanzania to volunteer as a research assistant because of her. I thought if she could do it, so can I!. I did but I didn’t last too long on the field. It takes determination and will power.
Dr Jane Goodall believes that we can make a positive change to our world regardless of who we are. She is known for her research on Chimpanzees in Tanzania.
When they decided to get married. They both agreed to combine their backgrounds. So they had a temple wedding, a catholic church wedding and a wedding dinner party to celebrate their union with their friends and family.
I was the maid of honour. I’m not quite sure what that role meant, but I took it on myself to make sure the bride was happy at all times. I assumed the role of bodyguard and messenger.
Born in the scenic hills of Vermont, USA, Spartan Race was created to bring the excitement of obstacle racing to spectators and athletes alike. That means you. With 130 events in 15 countries and 6 continents in 2014, Spartan Race is available to most everyone in the world.
Spartan Race is a true adventure that anyone can do, and everyone should try. With course lengths of 5+km (Sprint), 13+km (Super), and 20+km (Beast), each course is filled with mud, water, and signature obstacles designed to help you discover your inner Spartan. Athletes of all fitness levels will enjoy participating in a Spartan Race and the feeling of accomplishment that comes at the finish line.
Spartan Race even has events for kids and young adults. We believe that fitness and adventure should involve the whole family. Come out and watch your kids run, jump, and climb like children were meant to do all in their own Spartan Junior Race.
Not sure you are ready to run a Spartan Race? It’s ok we have everything you need to get you ready: guided workouts-of-the-day, nutrition tips to help you eat better, and free workouts held in cities wherever Spartan Races are organized. Spartan Race is not only the world’s best obstacle race (period), but can be a complete lifestyle overhaul.
So even if you’ve tried a trail race, mud run, obstacle race, or adventure race it’s time to try a Spartan Race. Unlike other obstacle races we offer something for everyone. So sign-up, gear-up and find out why we say…
Sketch of the day in my art journal is a flyer for my friends pop up bar. The Lotus Lounge at 92 Love lane, Penang. A last minute decision to chase away the Monday blues and to celebrate George Town Festival our own way!
We even managed to make some last minute merchandise for ourselves and guerilla marketing in less than 24 hours. I made the flyer in the early morning, printed it out and we stuck it in town. Cut out stencils for the t shirts which we bought at the local mydin store. All made in Penang with love. We also recruited a chef from Belgium who served up healthy chicken and veggie wraps and a few artists provide a creative vibe 🙂
It’s like magic when we work together as a team xoxo
I love George Town Festival. Every year I visit the events and review them on my blog. My friends ask me about which exhibitions to visit because they see on facebook that I’ve been to them all and I’ve done the leg work. As an artist based in Penang, it is incredible to have a month long arts festival. It is the time for me to see what other creatives are doing and to share ideas.
This year you can read all about it in Harper’s Bazaar Malaysia and follow my insiders guide to the festival.

“Two weeks in and BAZAAR Stylish Woman 2014, as well as Bulan Lifestyle bag designer and artist, Tiffany Choong, leads us through the sights and sounds, curious little side paths (and, of course, cocktails and cafés) of George Town during the ubiquitous George Town Festival 2015 — when an entire city is turned into a thriving arts and cultural hub for a whole month, even garnering international coverage. The brainchild of Joe Sidek, it’s literally when art takes to the streets and everyone, from all walks of life — from entrepreneur to auteur — participates. From her favourite after-hours drink spot — Chulia Court on 355 Lebuh Chulia for their fresh pineapple mojitos, thank you — to where you should go for a little post-festival Shavasana, harpersbazaar.my presents 10 things to try when you’re in Penang this August.”
