    Do You Believe In "Royal Bloodline"?

    I feel very bad for not blogging much lately, is the blardy photo up loader!!!!

    Why cant I upload photos in my house????

    I was able to upload these photos when I was at my friends place few days back, therefore I can post up what I wanted to write about.

    Please bare with me, I know I'm way behind time for blogging about my term 5 flash back, food promo and my super belated Singapore trip - Part 2(because I have yet to receive the photos).

    Nevertheless, this post is not some half baked crap for the sake of updating, but I really thought through it.

    Actually I got the idea for this post when I was chatting with my best friend one day.

    As you guys read through this, just reflect upon your own self, maybe you will discover something that you had never knew before in the process.

    I call this portrait:
    "mencangkung kerana emosi" & also "nothing better to do"
    *taken in Pulau Ketam*

    Do you guys believe in genetics? Or generational blessings/curses? Skills and ability inheritance from ancestors?

    We often say "Wah, you are just like your father/mother, so good at doing business, you must have inherited his business gens.", or something close to that.

    A myth or a fact? Honestly, I find it hard to tell myself.


    As we talked more and more in dept about this topic, I began to see a pattern in his lineage, all his family members, worked in the field that somewhat has contact with education, human management and resource(only 1 or 2 aliens who are not in those categories).

    My friend began to understand the fact that there IS an obvious pattern.

    Weird?

    Wait till you see my analysis on MY OWN lineage.

    My super cute nephew~

    It amazed and made me laugh at the same time.

    Ok, lets start with myself 1st, I'll do an overview, will spare the detail for later.

    Obviously, I'm a hotel management student(somewhat la..). I am stronger in terms of my theory and managerial side, compare to my practical and food related stuff.

    I'm naturally gifted in film, photography, innovative writing and drama related stuff, alright I'll just sum it in 1 word - 'arts'. Some of you know that very well.

    We all look so 'new'... Old times.. :)

    To make this test more accurate, I'll take some subjects from both my maternal and paternal family only.

    Please bare in mind, my research is not orthodox, I based it on what I know, my own assumption and observation.

    The purpose of this analysis is to show, does "bloodline" actually affects our aspiration and talents?

    This is 1 face that haven appear for a long time! XD
    Its none other then Sio Sen showing 3 generation of manager report. :)


    Maternal Grandfather:

    Used to own and manage his shoe factory and established a notable brand(not sure does it still exist today).

    Note: managerial lineage

    Mum:

    Was a company executive. In her younger years, I remembered she told me she worked part time at a BAR before, yes my mum, believe it or not. If you come to my house, there is a display of various types of glasses which I only knew the names of it after I entered Taylor's.

    I truly deserve to bang my head on the wall because all my life I had walked pass that cabinet, millions and billions of time, I only looked at it properly when I 1st entered college... I used to be amazed at those nice wine glasses and all that college displayed for us to see, only to know my own house also got... =/

    Note: managerial & hospitality lineage

    Maternal Uncle(mum's brother):

    Graduated from one of Switzerland's hotel school, he was the HR manager of Genting Highlands. Left Genting after 20 years(I think). Worked for TAYLOR'S SCHOOL of HOSPITALITY and TOURISM, he was one of the HR personal. Left Taylor's and started to venture back into the tourism industry by starting his own business.

    He was the 1st member of my maternal family to own a video camera(when I was not even in primary school), I remembered I was captivated by that alien looking device, and I could still recall, it was a black color V.C that used tapes, the brand was Sony. How could I even remember the brand when I was that age? Because Sony sounds like 'Sonic the headchog', it was my favorite cartoon at that time. :P

    Note: managerial & hospitality lineage

    Some of the glasses my mum own

    Dad:

    Manage his own shipping company. According to my paternal family members, he was a natural actor, evidence can be found in my 3rd brothers final project before he graduate from film school(I'll upload on Youtube once I get a copy of it).

    Though I have not seen it, but all of them said that his acting was just natural and real. I've heard from mum last time he can sing quite well too! This I have no clue at all, again, I have to get some confirmation, for now lets just assume. :)

    Note: managerial & arts lineage

    3rd Brother:

    Graduated from film school, and currently worked as an editor for a certain company.

    Note: arts lineage

    Youngest Brother:

    Currently studying animation at one of the colleges.

    Note: arts lineage


    Just another view of the glasses

    Just by picking 3 from each side to compare and analyze.

    The results are quite interesting don't you think so?

    Genetics? Generational blessings/curses? Inherited traits?

    Some might say, "maybe it was because of the effects of our upbringing environment."

    Well, I can firmly say, my maternal side of the family had never expose me to any of those stuff they do, and I just got to know more about my paternal side of the family after my dad passed on...

    So, tell me, how can my upbringing environment effect me? :)

    Much like 'the thinker' statue,
    but this wan more to blank stare la... :P
    *taken in Pulau Ketam*


    It is like playing a game, my aspiration towards the arts sector was dominant, BUT fate had played a better card then me(I thought), I was then forced to escape into the hospitality line.

    BUT in the hospitality sector, I was soon gradually exposed to managerial stuff and at the same time, helping me to tap into my arts aspiration, I dare to say, I've become better in it then before!

    I feel that all these 3 elements "in my blood" are choreographing a stage play which I can summarize into a short phrase:

    "With knowledge of management gained from hospitality, hence it shall bring me back into arts!"

    I've always believe in this saying, "everything happened for a reason".

    I never regret "escaping" here, but sometimes I still wonder why. Well, it is what God know and what I have to find out.

    Now, this is my nephew again, tell me he is not
    a good actor for his age... :P

    Reflect on your own also, believe me you will be surprised! And share with my in my comment box or chatbox, both side had been very quiet... :(

    Therefore guys, please make some noise and help me bring some life back to my blog!! XD

    So, Do You Believe In "Royal Bloodline"?

    Disclaimer: This is an uncontrolled experiment, results are not guaranteed, it is just more towards self discovery, have fun! ;)

What are you missing out on? Many people enjoy betting on sports but not everyone can compete at a high level. It all adds up to taking risks and how much you are willing to give in order to gain. Today, the stakes are not as high as they used to be, but that action has evolved into a multi-billion dollar industry. You can wager with money and when you win, you still get that tremendous rush. http://www.pulsebet.com/bg/ http://www.pulsebet.com/da/ http://www.pulsebet.com/de/ http://www.pulsebet.com/es/ http://www.pulsebet.com/fr/ http://www.pulsebet.com/gr/ http://www.pulsebet.com/jp/ http://www.pulsebet.com/nl/ http://www.pulsebet.com/pl/ http://www.pulsebet.com/pt/ http://www.pulsebet.com/ro/ http://www.pulsebet.com/ru/ http://www.pulsebet.com/se/ http://www.pulsebet.com/it/ http://www.pulsebet.com/cn/
