“Change is neither good nor bad. It simply is.” – Don Draper.

My rough time in Advertising has learned me one important thing: if a long-time-no-see friend tells me "Oh you're same old same old", something's not right. Change is the way to refresh creativity. In this business, maybe it's the ultimate way to survive, and to thrive.

Yet, there are things you wish to never change - the things I will not. Things like being different. Things like believing in intuition more than any logics. Things like staying true to the heart. And lastly, it's the belief that if I'm not good, then I can be better.

Hopefully, when you see me after sometime, I'll get to say "I'm still me. Just better."

Best treats: Radiohead. Britney Spears. Sam Smith. Christopher Nolan. Trinh Cong Son. Murakami. Good food.


Thinking. Writing. Being weird.
