What’s up people of the world? 😀
First of all, I would like to wish you a happy and prosperous 2011!
2010 has been a great year for me and I hope it was a great year for you too 🙂
I was going to post this earlier, but I’ve been really, really busy since it’s been the first weeks of secondary school.
Here are 6 events in 2010 that are very special to me.
- I was the first runner-up in the Blog4FT contest.
- I wrote my 1Malaysia song.
- I became a host for TV2’s program Kembara@Kids on 2. (Watch me! – RTM TV2, each Saturday, shown during cartoon breaks every half hour from 7:30am – 10:00am [i.e. 7:30, 8:00, 8,30 … 10:00])
- I got 5A’s in the UPSR exam!
- My second poetry book, Creative Row Your Boats, was appreciated and ordered by the National Libraries of Malaysia.
- I made my first short film!
So yeah, I’ve turned 13 years old on January 3rd, 2011, so I’m no longer 12 years old. *sighs* Time flies like an arrow. Fruit flies like a banana.
(Hahaha. Get it? “Fruit flies” *like* a banana. :P)
So now, I’m in Victoria Institution (aka V.I.) secondary school. I’m really thankful I got into this school, because it is one of the oldest schools in Kuala Lumpur.
The first weeks of school has been great for me. I made a lot of new friends.
I stay in a hostel, and I can only get to go back home approximately once a week, so I couldn’t go online frequently, at the moment.
Short Film: The Highest Skyscraper on Earth
My first short film, is called The Highest Skyscraper on Earth, based on my poem. I finished it during the last week of December 2009. It is something that I’ve been wanting to do for a long time.
Here it is! 🙂
I hope you enjoyed it!
I’ll really appreciate it if you can give it a thumbs up/favorite on YouTube or share it with your friends. Thanks a lot! 🙂
It took me about 1 week to finish the whole thing because I had to illustrate the illustrations, edit the video, and compose the music too.
If you want to see how I made it, here is the making-of and behind-the-scenes. Although it is 10 minutes, I hope you take the time to watch it 🙂 .
I hope you enjoyed both videos! Thank you very much for viewing them! 🙂
Plans for Gloson Blog
Even though I live in a hostel, I’ll do my best to find a way to manage my blog as well.
And maybe, since I’ve done the making-of for my short film, I think I’ll consider vlogging (or video-blogging) because you can be more creative with it and your readers will get to know you on a more personal level. Vlogging is a thing that complements your blogging!
Also, I’ve got a blog post by a guest blogger coming up on the 31st of January. More interesting posts are on the way too, so stay tuned my dear readers! 🙂
Cheers and Bestest Regards,
