What does it feel like to be traveling around while you have business to run?

Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life. That's the quotes that I always hold to. I used to dream to travel around and get paid at the same time. Afraid not I started to achieve my dream when I became a photographer and video producer. The longest working duration out of Malaysia that I did previously was in Singapore and Indonesia.

When I was in Singapore few years back (that's when my business starting to grow), I receive job offer to be in Singapore as a photographer for Singapore artist. Since I grew up in Singapore, it's not something new for me. I would say Singapore and Kuala Lumpur is not that far 1-2 hour flight but the one that make it harder is when I must always on stand by for the shoot. I was in Singapore for 3 month and another part of me is I have to be in Kuala Lumpur. It's really challenging since my business is just starting to grow and I always did a day trip back to KL for a meeting and quick shooting.

Another experience was when I went to Indonesia for some Indonesia travel magazine shooting (Jakarta, Bandung, Yogjakarta, Semarang & Surabaya) for almost 3 weeks. I almost travel and shooting every day since I always jump from one city to another. Sometimes I have to use flight, train, bus and bike.  It's really fun and eye opening for me because I love what I'm doing and I get paid for what I'm doing.

However, it's really challenging when you have business to run and people to feed back in your city. Thanks to technology where I can get connected with my team through social media and emails. Currently I'm in Langkawi for a month for some shooting and I did manage to get few days off to go back to Kuala Lumpur.

So, what does it feel like to be traveling around while you have business to run?
It's awesome and eye opening for me. It's help me to see the bigger picture and be matured. Not forget it help me to be a better person in management and personality.

It was sleepless 2 nights in Kuala Lumpur because I maximize my time for the meetings, shooting and social media event (advertorial) that I have to attend. However, it's totally worth it. Thanks to the CVS Production team player who did a good job when I'm not in KL. Someone told me before. You must delegate the job in order to expand. Proud with my colleagues and my small potato company achievement. 

I read Richard Branson book before and he mentioned that a business has to be involving, it has to be fun, and it has to exercise your creative instincts. I did not get any proper sleep since I'm back from Langkawi and did few online ads. Thanks for the CVS Production team and @ShazreenFazlynda for your time and effort. Looking forward to work together in future.

Thank you Jungle Magic for these awesome stuff. Can't wait to use for my Langkawi trip.

Did some studio maintenance for my studio in order to deliver the best to the clients. If you need studio for rental, do check out White Studio Project

Went to Jakel Mall for their launch, HERE!

Bought some chocolates for friends, staff and clients.

So, we moved to a better place in Langkawi. This is where the band and I staying for the next one week and half. It freaking huge and awesome. Not to mention the beach smell too. I think I have found my next company trip.
