    make your family happy pick a career that you are actually interested in Don t live with your family you must become a mature adult and you can t do that if mom or grandma keep over protecting you You must be free to learn from your own mistakes Experiment this is your time to discover what your interests are try different classes clubs and social activities Surround yourself with people who are talented and passionate and use them to motivate you You get out of it what you put into it Make efforts in whatever you do Posted in Education Leave a comment Latest Track US Route 395 Posted on April 8 2015 by lion Posted in Music Leave a comment Gamelab Posted on January 24 2015 by lion I ve been consulting as dxSaigon for a project called Gamelab It s a medical research themed game jam where we ve paired Vietnamese research scientists from OUCRU Oxford University Clinical Research Unity with Vietnamese game developers into seven teams which are competing at this very moment in a 48 hour game jam The production crew primarily behind the project has been producing a lot of videos Here are some of me talking about the project game design and game jams Posted in Design Game Dev Leave a comment A New Year Posted on January 9 2015 by lion I m back in Saigon after a three week trip that I d rather describe as a pilgrimage than as a vacation It was pretty transformative I am feeling really confident about 2015 and I m really excited to build dxSaigon s new products and just excited to be alive really It s been a while Some of the highlights included Getting to see my son and of course the rest of my family but seeing my son is especially important to me Having some conversations with my 94 year old grandmother Skiing for the first time in 4 or 5 years I ve still got it and I might even be better than ever before I just had some really nice confidence I was able to point my skis straight down double black diamonds launch off rocks do jumps in the middle of mogul fields and generally just carve gracefully This is all stuff I could do as a kid but it was qualitatively different now all with a sense of calm and ease The revelation I had was one of trust just trusting that I d be able to react to the unexpected and stay relatively in control despite unforeseen conditions Once you feel this trust or accept the situation you can let go of worry and be free to experience the innate rhythm of the circumstances Getting inspired by my friends who are up to really cool stuff and getting words of encouragement from them They are all fighting so hard to make their dreams come true and I m really lucky to have their respect and friendship
