Passion, Fears and Wants

I’ve always wanted to do what I love and make a living (make more than enough money) out of it. But, I’ve never actually did anything consistently and long enough to see real results.

After reading Pat’s blog (, I’ve come to realise (an AHA moment) that I can do this (make passive income) (sorry for the () over load:)… So the first step that I shall do is to think out ideas onto paper. I shall create an awesome, uncensored mindmap. This mindmap shall have ideas born out of my passion, fears and wants or needs.

But first thing’s first, I shall have my beauty sleap (according to my girlfriend, Bradley Cooper advises to sleep 8 hours – just look at his smoking body!)

Till then, good night and I shall write again soon.


Revisiting BMX Part 2

5 months later, I have one very cool looking bike, and 2 lost teeth.

What I need is a good full face helmet and a set of permanent false teeth. So that I can look both handsome and safe.

Revisiting BMX. Part 1

After a very long hiatus from bmx, I’ve decided to be healthy doing what I love doing: riding on two wheels. Especially BMX.

So I’ve managed to buy parts from Singapore (Tiong Hin) to be fitted on the fly mosca frame Adam kindly donated to me.

However, the road is not at all smooth to getting back to BMX. My parts have arrived in Malaysia, but are now detained by the customs at the KLIA LCCT airport. Bummer.

This week I’ll be driving all the way down to the airport to get my parts back. And I’ll be prepared. For anyone who’s experiencing the same problem, or will be experiencing the same problem, fret not. Check out this tax schedule.’s%20Goods%202nd%20schedule%20final.pdf

I’m parts away from relearning bunny hops.

Idea repository

I am making baghdadbattery into a repository of ideas. With these ideas, I will then get to see which one is most suitable to be worked on, and the one most pressing I think will have to be ideas about energy and how we consume it.

Since watching An Inconvenient Truth for the very first time 2 years ago, my interest in our climate has steadily picked up. Tonight, after reading the eye opening chapter on ‘Gaia Capitalism’  in Richard Branson’s ‘Screw It, Let’s Do it’, I do believe with all my heart that I am enough as 1 person to create change within my circle of influence.

Alrighty, to begin with, the first idea is to support renewable energy efforts and help it be widely available.  So let’s explore more on the subject of renewable energy shall we?

A quote to live by

Who is the judge?
The judge is God.
Why is he God?
Because he decides whether I win or lose, not my opponent.
Who is your opponent?
He doesn’t exist.
Why does he not exist?
Because he is just a mere dissenting voice to the truth I speak.

-The Great Debaters


I have yet to find (or create) the ideal working environment.

However, after watching Oprah Primetime’s teaser about ‘Zappos’ whose CEO has no suit, I am certain that there is hope for the working class :)

One thing for me to note, is that the employees over at Zappos has a sense of ownership over the company they are working for. And, they remember the 10 values! Which explains why they can work and have crazy fun together, because everyone is aligned to each others vision.

Great CEO+great employees=great company. A perfect combi.

Dream On

Everytime that I look in the mirror
All these lines on my face gettin clearer
The past is gone
It went by like dust to dawn
Isnt that the way
Everybodys got their dues in life to pay

I know what nobody knows
Where it comes and where it goes
I know its everybodys sin
You got to lose to know how to win

Half my life is in books written pages
Live and learn from fools and from sages
You know its true
All the things come back to you

Sing with me, sing for the years
Sing for the laughter, sing for the tears
Sing with me, if its just for today
Maybe tomorrow the good lord will take you away

Dream on, dream on
Dream yourself a dream come true
Dream on, dream on
Dream until your dream come true
Dream on, dream on, dream on…

Sing with me, sing for the years
Sing for the laughter and sing for the tears
Sing with me, if its just for today
Maybe tomorrow the good lord will take you away
