Since this will probably be my last post for 2011, I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone on this blog especially to those I have personally been involved with throughout the year for their generous contributions. You have in someway however big or small allowed me to pursue my interest in philosophy and self discovery.

Through my pursuits in the metaphysics, gradually freeing myself from the indoctrination of the state and religiosity, I have found myself growing in awareness, willing to embrace challenges and being accountable and responsible for my own actions or inaction.

My relationship with myself and my love ones have become increasingly profound through the accumulation of true knowledge and applying first principles, reason and evidence in my daily life.

It is my objective to perpetually grow on these areas and my wish to reciprocate. Striving to embody the change that I want to see change in the world will serve as my guide.

Have a great christmas and new year.

Thank you for your support.

~ Jason Geh

Jazz Trio KL | ENCORP’s Event

For today’s event, the organizers opted for a Jazz Trio as live entertainment for the homeowners of ENCORP Strand Residences who attended this appreciation lunch event.

They wanted the entertainment to be of quality and non intrusive. Thus no vocalist required but rather an instrumental performance featuring the saxophonist taking most of the melodies with improvisations by the keyboard and double bass player.

The 3 performers are accomplished jazz musicians being able to take any simple melody and effortlessly expand and extemporize. It is extremely liberating and fulfilling to express oneself with such ease.

This is only possible through diligence and a lifetime commitment in mastering their performing skills of their respective instruments.
