Fearless First Video blog

My dear fearless friends and fans,

I am delighted to present my first vblog (video blog) to all of you.

This vblog features my thoughts on Christmas and the year to come, and personal insights. My special guest is none other than Ms. Jamie Khoo of Effortless Beauty fame!

Jamie and I go way back. For one, we were both born in the year of the Rooster. She is younger than me by 12 years. We have seen each other through the worst and best of times. I am very blessed to have her in my life, indeed.

This Christmas, Jamie and I wanted to do something special for our wonderful friends and fans. So, we decided to greet everyone with our very first vblog. For some of you, this may be the first time you are seeing us. We sincerely hope you’ll find the vblog enjoyable.

The vblog is divided into Part One and Two. They are about 10 mins each. Yes, it is long because we wanted it to be meaningful and deeply personal.

In Part One, Jamie shared how her personal definition of beauty has evolved over the years and what she cherished most about 2014.  She also shared her inspiring message for those seeking to achieve effortless beauty in their lives. Please do take the time to check out Jamie’s amazing blog.

Part Two of the vblog revolves around my personal highlights of 2014, what fearlessness has come to mean to me and my fearless message to all of you.

I would also like to take this opportunity to shine the spotlight on the guys who work behind the scenes. They help me make the Art of Fearless Living what it is today. They are my dear mates Jason Tan, Vincent Chan and my God brother, Chin Hor, the super talented cinematographer. Chin Hor is the one who shot the vblog for us. I am truly grateful for their friendship, incredible support and love.

Lastly but not least, a heartfelt thanks to each and every one of you, awesome fans and friends. You have truly made my 2014 a year to remember and I look forward to sharing an even better 2015 with you. There will be more exciting guest blogs, interviews, vblogs, news and events to watch out for in 2015.

If you make only one resolution this year, let it be to live COURAGEOUSLY. Dive into ‪life knowing that you are capable of taking on whatever challenges that come your way. Imagine the person you want to be, and work towards realising that aspiration with your every breath. Live the life you want to live without compromising who you are. Always believe in yourself. Embrace your beauty . Discover your true passion. Whatever you do, and wherever you go – be FEARLESS. Because your greatness lies beyond the walls of fear.

Happy blessed New Year, my dearest friends and fans.

May 2015 bring fulfilment, love, meaning, peace and joy!

Being Afraid Is Human, But Staying Afraid Is A Choice.

    Great stuff. So relaxed and like a conversation you might have WITHOUT a camera there. YEAH!

    Late to class again, but it was so delightful to see AND hear the great Shirley Maya Tan along with the (hilariously) beautiful Jamie Khoo. I definitely enjoyed the conversation and I’m hoping you’ll do more vlogs in future.

      Better late than never, Elizabeth! Haha
      Thank you so much for your encouraging words. Means a lot. We are definitely looking into making more vblogs. X fingers. Hope all is well with you. 🙂

    Congratulations to you, Shirley and all involved in the making of these vlogs. What a tremendous job in getting across so many messages. You were both so relaxed in your discussions and conveyed, for me, such a genuine desire for all of us to be the best we all can be, starting each with our own selves. I loved the idea of the little insinuating voice of negativity being put in its place by embracing what and who we are in all our manifestations. That does take fearlessness. How else can we embrace the whole world if we cannot begin by embracing ourselves? Such a clear message. May it go from strength to strength.
    It was so lovely to hear and see you too. Like sitting in the room with you. Wonderful job! Kudos to you all. 🙂

      So very lovely to hear from you, SS/AM. Trust all is going as well as it can be – even if you are up to your eye balls! 🙂
      Thank you so much for taking the time to stop by and watch the vlogs. I appreciate it deeply, especially knowing how so very tied up you are at this time. Your words of encouragement and support are dearly valued as always. I really wanted to make the viewers feel like as if they are in the room with us. I am very happy to hear that you felt the same. Thank you again, my dearest. Big hugs x
