Some things you need to comprehend in life...

I'll die trying if I don't make it in the end.

Banyan Tree

I think sometimes we are blurred by all these hypes and coolness and profanity of the world. We wanted to be someone that we don't even know. We wanted to stay at some nice hotels that we can't even afford. And fulfilment sometimes came from being like someone that we don't even know. Or from staying at some cool hotels.

What if you become someone that you really want to be and someone with your own purpose?
What if you own that hotel and make changes in the live of people around you?

The thoughts came after watching Ho Kwon Ping, the owner of Banyan Tree, on Bloomberg TV this morning. People might not get what you're doing right now, sometimes you don't even see it. But always remember that you strive towards a larger goal, which only can be seen once it's done. Embrace the process and don't ever doubt to stay on your path.

He says his resilience taught him a lesson: "You never should try to be what you are not. What you have, whatever disadvantages you may have, is what you have and... you have to create something unique out of it."

Be careful when you possess access, you might be defensive, you might be blocking people's way, you might be rude, you might be arrogant.

Why do we let ourselves fall into the same mediocrity like everyone else is...

To focus and to have a clear goal.

Is something that we're lacking.

Look at the Japanese, at how they manage to run a family business of generations to live from. How they persist in how imperfect their works are still. And how they are never tired of improving themselves. Never get jealous of what others are doing, never swayed by the trend or the coolness.

I think we are too greedy, wanting to be everything in the world.

The truth is we can't.

Be that tofu maker in a rural city, a confectioner from the corner of the street that people are looking for, a woodworker of a thousand chair and that guy doing kintsugi. Choose of a part in the world that you want to play role of, because only from there, you can possess the firmness, the guts and the clarity in answering your call.

I think I can just live by meeting my favourite people.

Found that song we heard at Asiatique.

Chinatown Dinner

One night, we took the boat from Saphan Taksin to N8, where Chinatown is. Always a vibrant place everywhere, the one in Bangkok was a pretty exciting one. Everything here seemed to be done in a massive scale including durians, octopus, noodles, pork, you name it they got it. 

Does it have to be that big?

We ended up at a seafood stall, enjoying our dinner until the rain poured.
