Moving out, moving on.

In life, we often move from one place to another; to a new house, a new career, a new relationship, and so on. Most of the times there's nothing wrong with it. When it is time to move out, it's time to move on.

I started this Dem Yuh blog, wait.... on November 26, 2008, over three years ago, without any plans, I just did. I was looking for something to do, something to fulfill the need to try out something new. It was like standing at the edge of a cliff, waiting to be pushed, but instead I just jump.

And there you go: my first blog post. (HERE). Silly, but good start.

Anyway, long story short. Until before this post, I have written (or copied, or plagiarised) over 400 entries, on which most of them were 94% bullcraps (that, I guarantee you). In fact, this post is almost surely part of my bullcrap too.

Not just that, I thought I could write something else, and I came up with, not just one, but TWO more blogs (speaking of obsession); one about FASHION, and another one, well,, right... See what I mean?

It has been few years, and time has passed, very fast, and like any other human, you venture into new things, more commitments, new interest, blah blah blah. And my passion for writing has slowly taking its toll. At one point, I didn't know what to write anymore, I got rusty.

So, after much deliberation, I made my decision to move out, and move on.

I will no longer use this blog to speak my mind. I don't know. I need a new place. And all the furniture in this house will be left here and waiting for it to rot and be part of my memories. It is such a joy, to be able to say things that, never in my life, have I done something like this and I'm glad I did it.

I want to start a new chapter. The same me, but new house, new environment.

If there's any of you who still want to check out what I think about stuff, you can go to my new home:


To all my subjects, my inspirations, my angers, my point-of-views, I thank all of you for being part of my life.

Make more Promises.

One of the biggest tracks this summer was "Promises", from the ever-bliss female vocalist, Andain (Wikipedia HERE). If you're trying to remember who she is, she was the voice in Tiesto's Beautiful Things.

There were about 13 remixes (official) for this huge track, but I have narrowed it down to my top three. It's difficult to put it in particular order, but what I may be able to share with you is the mood that comes with the respective remixes.

1. Marco V Remix

First up, is the remix by my favourite tech-trance producer, Marco V (official website HERE).

When I first heard this remix, I was amazed by Marco's fine touch. I have to say, Marco V is probably the reason I started to listen to techno. I love it as it has a dark, edgy and melodic elements.

I've actually played this track in my Sinful Soul Mix Vol. 1, if I'm not mistaken in track number 5. You'll see at least four tracks are made/remixed by Marco, and in fact, this is my first ever Mixset and it's generally a tech-trance mixset. You can always have a listen to my Sinful Soul Mix Vol. 1 down here:

2. Myon & Shane 54 Summer of Love Mix

Myon & Shane 54 (official website HERE) are very famous with their "Summer of Love Mix" which is as you know, lovely and their "Triplet Monster Mix" which is as you know, monstrous.

This remix feels like summer full of love. I can imagine this track being played during an uplifting sets, it is really soothing and I can definitely imagine girls dancing sexily while singing along to it.

3. Gabriel & Dresden Remix

This duo (Wikipedia HERE) has been around since a decade ago, and after resting for few years, they decided to rock the dance world again.

Their remix of this track is tight with a darker feel, something I'd definitely play at 4 AM, you know, when you are ready to get dirty.

Other notable mentions are the ones from Nitrous Oxide, Soundprank and David Call.

Summer has ended, but not the smell and the sound of it. I am also blessed to live in a tropical, all-year-long summer and rain home.

What's your take?

Dem yuh!

Good look around you.

To say that I only listen to electronic & dance music (EDM) is inaccurate. I admit, I spend more time building my foundation around electronic & dance, however the point is making music using electronic devices and software. That is the whole point.

The amount of time we spend doing something we are passionate about, is one of the elements to get a good grip of the surrounding. Having said that, every once in a while, I do bumped into some really inspirational music, from different genres.

I don't discriminate. I don't. My musical journey goes through many phases and encounters, having enjoyed different mixes and mashes to this point where I'm writing now. I love music, I muse your ears.

This, muses me.

Genius? Yes.

Dem yuh!

Alright people.

I've got something I'd like to introduce to this space. I have been toying with the idea of music for a while, and it kind of get me in a nice way. I like it. I like to spend time on music. In fact, I have been mixing some tracks some time ago, and I think I should continue the momentum.

As many of you must have spent generous amount of time to surf porn, I, other than that, surf for music. My interest at the moment: Electronic music. Or EDM.

To ensure the longevity of my blog space and my music interest, I will try and post my favourite music, once a week, depending on the occasion/mood/laziness.

For this week, since it's Halloween Weekend, enjoy this track by Albin Myers.

Don't forget, ECO FILM FEST!

Dem yuh!

Rediscover purpose

This is somehow unplanned. I am in the middle of a really hectic schedule, and this week especially is the most intense week for me. Everything I have been doing since January this year, will come to the climax; a project I am involved since day one in 2008: Eco Film Fest.

Last night I was at the Green Drinks event at The Apartment KLCC, a last-Tuesday-of-the-month event where budding environmental-conscious people gather to, drink. In fact, we (the Team) were lucky to be given a slot to to promote our final EFF2011.

After the event started we got out to KLCC to find something less overpriced to eat. Half an hour after that we walked back to the event. Just in front of the Apartment entrance, I bumped into an old friend (if I'm considered a friend), my former schoolmate. I remembered I saw her status update in some social media platform a while ago when she just got married and everyone was congratulating her and stuff. She was with her husband, and my, she's pregnant. We chatted for couple of minutes and she asked me, "do you still work for the motorsports-thingy stuff?" and I answered, "no, I'm now doing environmental education stuff. Close to four years now." A moment later we made our own way.

The highlight of the story was not meeting an old friend, but rather the fact that I have been doing environmental work for four years. I came a long way; volunteer, part time, executive, and now, the Programme Manager.

And for so long I have done a stretch of things, extending beyond just environment. I write for my blog, I learn music, I lecture, I travel, I play, I party, I everything, in the name of self-development.

However after a while, I got too attached to my works, slowly sunken in the delusional fact that the only reason we all work is for money. Nothing is working without money. My self-development went down the gutter.

And funny, just now, in fact this past month, I've been getting few comments by people I know and I don't: We don't see your writing anymore.

God, a hobby I explored out of realising how crucial it is for my future benefit, was left noticed. Last time I felt like I have the need, the responsibility to write, but now, down the gutter.

It also made me realised how I missed writing; a simple, cheap fun to entertain myself and sometimes, for better or worse, I entertained (or annoyed) others. A hobby which I used to spend seriously to develop and train my honest opinions and thinking process which involves 90% of the time pure bullcrap. Craps take a lot of effort too.

Maybe I was caught in the heat of the moment. We grow older, our drive, our strength, our youthful charm, declining while on the contrary, the world demands more from us; more work, more money, more products.

So is this all worthwhile? The chase for money - something imaginary and feel so damn real?

It made me think that what I need to do is to think of what made me feel happy, what I feel good about, without compromising my commitments and responsibilities. I need to rediscover the purpose of life, my life.

So what I'll do is, I'll start to write again. Or at least pay more attention to my belongings.

Allow me to welcome myself back.

Dem yuh!
