Original content

You know what worries me now? Not having enough original content. Yes, me blabbing on a blog and you accidentally clicking on it, is considered original content.

Whenever I see a Vine, YouTube, Instagram or Twitter, those are original content. Well at least those who do make them. We do have those who simply re post and it just pisses me off really. Those that post original content and have a strong followers, now that is even crazier.

What can I do? Well definitely most of these people has a rather humble beginnings and I was happy to be a part of the group that watches them grow.

Do I have a group of people watching me grow? Hmm, well maybe during my active days. Now? Eh, who knows. It's crazy that I actually have more content but I refuse to upload them

Lazy Fuck...

That is soo not how rich successful people get rich and success.


You gotta work with what you have eh?

Me and my Pokemon, if you know Pokemon were real and this picture has nothing to do with the blog, I just figured all of you deserves a picture.

Normal Type

What is normal? Well the picture above is Lopunny, a Normal type Pokemon. It may look like a female character, but it can be male or female. It's also one of the Pokemon than tends to get over sexualized by horny Otaku perverts. Eh, watcha gonna do right.

I don't feel normal. Never had a normal childhood, normal school life, not normal anything. In fact I tend to be attracted to abnormal things. Erghh, it seem some of it is just bad choices. We are so not getting into that mode.

Normal mode for now means going back to work after a 2 day travel, 3 workshop, 2 daytime work travels and 2 night time visits in a different country.

Now I am going back to the real world, which is my museum world and back to the place that gave me the opportunity to break from the normal. I must keep in mind the one year promise I made to the. It's actually in contract so I am screwed if I don't follow it. Meh.

However yeah, it is fun. Remember all that talk about social media. Damn, it is much harder than it seems. Its even harder when you don't have a reliable equipment to use. Thank goodness I bought a good laptop. I mean the old one can still be used normally but really if you can't YouTube then what it the point of paying RM 243 a month for 20Mbs Internet.

Ah well, I guess there is nothing wrong about not being normal. When they say normal is boring, they can't really put what is normal. What is normal to you, seems so abnormal to me and vice versa.

I feel better now. Maybe because I writing more, maybe because I have a hot cocoa, maybe because I have the AC on to just chill me until bedtime.

I really should upload all my photos of my trip. People like that kinda thing. It helps them to plan.

Who am I? A question about branding

Who am I? Well in life I got a relatively well understanding of who I am, but online? Who am I? For most people it probably does not matter since the real world is where the action is, but what about those who work closely with media and public. Who you are online will say what you are and what you do.

In my line of work which involves me working in a museum, I don't really have any related work outside the museum field. All those demonstration and random science facts don't really add up outside the museum world. A talk with my sister who is a recruiter confirms that. If she can't understand what I do, will the rest of the world do?

So I am nearing my 5 year plan. Who am? This just made me a bit confused. Am I a nerd? Am I a foodie? Am I a wanderlust traveler? Am I an emotional person? Am I a story teller? Am I a blogger? Am I a gamer? 

I think I am all of it. If you remember the saying "Jack of All Trades" this seems like it but there is actually a continuity of it which is "Master of None". Oooh that just really pull down the saying into the negative zone.

Well, people call Bazli. I love Pokemon and I plan to play it competitively. Hence the ID card you see above. It is a legit thing that the whole world has and involve and it does actually provide you with a lot of opportunities. Not bad for a thing that was supposedly banned in Malaysia sometime ago but never enforce, just like smoking. 

I do play other games on other system which includes Android, Sony PlayStation and PC. If I had the money, I would also get the Wii U.

I love to travel and have been doing it extensively. I am lazy to upload pictures though, but that has to change.

I love food and I love making them. I do believe I helped my younger sister jump start her online baking business (she still uses my Pavlova recipe that I took from the Internet).

I definitely enjoy working in the museum and I love the various demonstration that we are able to do and show off to people. 

I did enjoy blogging sometime ago because my masters was so hard to do and the work itself was very lonely, so I had to vent out one way or another. 

So I guess I am more than just one thing.

However, branding requires you to focus. So which one is it?

Oh Apple, you sneaky ....

Lately Apple has been messing with my mind. Not the fruit but the tech company that swept the world by storm. Apple churns out pretty good products that EVERYBODY (that has money) seem to have. Iphones, Ipads and Macbooks. The amount of customer loyalty is insanely high in my opinion but Apple must have been doing something well enough to make people that loyal.

I like my Android and I like my PC but lately people seem to push me around in another direction and it is driving me of the wall. I like Androids with the games they offer and the freedom to choose a variety of phones. It is also a lot cheaper. I like my PC because it runs a lot of games that I like, besides who plays games with a Mac? Maybe those simple games maybe, but not those high definition games.

However Apple has been tugging my soul. Yeah, my soul, not my wallet, not my heart, not my mind but my soul. It is scaring me a bit. If I did not have a good head on my shoulder. I would just probably swipe my credit card now and just get that Apple product that I want, right this instant. I even have the Apple website open in one of my windows.

I would get the Iphone because it seems to have a lot of cool features now like 4k recording, live pictures and just a sleek exterior. It also has this pastel metallic pink that they called Rose Gold and I felt the gentle color SCREAMING at me. What the hell Apple. When I was in Japan and they already launched Iphone 6s, I was watching their commercial in Japanese and was hook on it, even though it did not make any sense. Once I switched it to English, I hate it that the voice in the  commercial was being self depreciating ish about the phone features and I love self depreciating humor. God Dammit.

When I went to Japan for a workshop, a god damn spokesperson from Apple came and presented a video on how Ipads and Macbook can be used to make Ebooks that is simple to use and yet very detailed. Aaaarggh, Apple has definitely gotten it hook on education a LONG time ago. I am in the education sector and I want to create my own brand, so I feel like I need an Ipad and Macbook now because in order to create a better future for myself.

It all cost money though, but I feel like I could used that money for my personal trip to Japan because I have so many things to see, but you know what would suck though? More than half of the people there uses Iphones. WTF! Those waterproof Japanese phones are rare to see now. Using an Android seems to be the hipster thing to do.

Yup, I finally made it here to Tokyo Japan. Actually it was already in my plans to travel to Tokyo for my 31st birthday, but as fate would see it, I was sent here for training.

The gist for the 3 days training is

  • This is a one year commitment project
  • I am screwed
  • I get to learn new skills that will help me in the future
  • I got to meet cool new people
  • I am soo screwed
  • I get to see bits and pieces of Japan, although Odaiba does not feel like Japan at all
  • I feel nervous with the responsibilities that handed upon me
  • I am not sure how will my bosses react to the plans
  • Can I handle this amount of power again?
  • Euww Apple's marketing managed to get to me.
So many questions, but this is wonderful because I would be out of my comfort zone. There is no better way to learn and grow than to be thrown into something you feel uncomfortable in.

Bites and Fights

Baby carrots for crunch and home made garlic basil dip (a friend made it, I bought it) for a snack. Definitely a snack because I ate it for dinner and now I am definitely hungry. Supposedly it a healthy snack since it combines flavour, texture and some fat together. However I ate the whole bag of carrots. Sure it's a vegetables, but it is a starchy one, so it's kinda dense it energy. Let's hope the fibre helps to reduce those calories a bit. I did go heavy on the dip though, I think about 2 tablespoon was already gone. Eh, what can you do.

These midnight post, will never have any readers. Heck, blogging is thing in the past? Unless it's porn, celebrity porn or political figure porn, not many people would read it right?

Meh, what to do, that means I can write more stuff without fear of people finding out. Malaysian's don't read that much outside the gossip blogs. I am safe. Maybe, vaguely.

When you become a grown adult supposedly one should settle a fight in a civil way. LOL, it feels more like Civil War where everybody is killing each other or the Cold War, where passive aggressiveness or refusal to cooperate is the tools.

Meh, all you can do just walk away and let it blow over. I have worst fights before where we ignored each other pretty much for a few years. That was in our 20s though, still young, still a kid. Who knows right?

All I want to do now ,it to flex my blogging and social media skills. I will need this in the future.

Stressful future

Suddenly it hit me, that I am so worried what will happen in the future.

My company seems so secure but who knows, what if it went bankrupt and I am out of a job.

What will I do?

I was thinking of Uber and renting out my house.

Now the sudden out burst of social media, almost every night.

When I say social media, I am mind vomitting on everything.  Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat, Blogger, Tumblr and Dayre.

It's like built up pressure just exploding out. As fun it was to read about it. Now it's time to make some content out of it.
