The Apprentice

Bought The Apprentice Season 1 DVD Series last Wednesday and finished watching it on Thursday! Holiday ma... Hehe... =P

The Apprentice is a reality-tv based show in which contestants compete for a job as an apprentice to billionaire American Donald Trump. The winner of the competition, the true "apprentice" will be granted the dream job of a lifetime with The Trump Organization and a salary of $250,000.

Have you guys watched The Apprentice already? Learned alot of stuffs from it. I think the most important lesson I learned from watching this show is about getting good people who you can trust to get the job done.

Bill Rancic

Amy Henry

For me, Bill (the winner) deserves to be hired. He's street smart and hardworking. Also, if there's another choice, I would also hire Amy. She helped Bill alot during the last few episodes. The final task would be more interesting if we get to see both of them fighting each other. Hehe... Anyways Great show! I highly recommend it! Will post the lessons soon.

Some Donald Trump memorable quotes from The Apprentice:

1. Don't deal with underlings - Always deak with the boss wherever possible.

2. The art of the deal - Negotiation is a delicate art. It isn't learned, it's in the genes. A negotiator is born.

3. A deal's a deal - once you shake hands, that should be it.

4. Stand up for yourself - Nobody will fight for you

5. Know what you're up against. The big thing in negotiation is to try and figure out your opponent. Otherwise you're going to look like an idiot and lose big."

6. Beggars can't be choosers - Never beg when you're trying to sell something. If it doesn't work out, take your lumps and relax. Never sell through begging.

7. You gotta believe.

8. Think Outside The Box - It's easier to think big. It's easier to attract money and capital to a big project than it would be to do a small job that nobody care about and nobody wanted to finance.

9. Passion - You cannot be successful without passion. If you don't love what you're doing, if you don't have passion for it, forget it. Do something else. You'll lead a lot happier life.

10. Dog Does Not Eat Dog - The greatest thing that can happen to a business man or woman is to surround yourself with talented people who also happen to be loyal. If they're not loyal to you one time, don't give them a second chance because they won't be loyal to you next time.

OK, finished The Aprrentice Season 1. Gonna get another series. Which is better? The L Word or The Office?

TASA Young KL Singers presents Four Seasons!

The upcoming production Four Seasons will feature diverse compositions and choral arrangements by famed musicians from the past depicting sounds and events relating to the four seasons in a year. The approximately 50-member choir under the wing of The Actors Studio Academy (TASA) will present choral works of different European languages such as German, French, Swedish, Spanish and English. These pieces are music associated with famous poems, spirituals, festivals and scenes from all four seasons - the chirping of birds and dewdrops of spring; the gentle breezes to the psalms of summer; the falling leaves of autumn; to the cold, freezing nights and the festivities that abound during winter.
