Hello ladies and gentlemen, today’s lesson is how to be a a standout in life.

According to my very handy WordWeb dictionary, Standout means

  1. Be highly noticeable
  2. Distinguish oneself
  3. Steer away from shore, of ships
  4. Be stubborn in resolution or resistance

In today’s lesson, we’re going to concentrate on the first two definitions of the word.

Well, one way to be highly noticeable is to do something crazy or daring, like doing a highly untrained somersault dive from a rather high speed boat deck. It was a sure way to capture anyone’s attention, especially if you manage to land (bad pun) on your back creating a very loud SPLASH, and end up with very red and painful back.

Another way to be a standout is to be performers, or more specifically, rock stars!

Even though I basically can’t sing nor play the guitar (except for guitar hero on Wii) , I did not give up the dream to be a rock star for well, 10 minutes. I lip synced my way with Ginny and Robb at the Nuffnang Music Bash and had a small group of people wondering what we were doing, but it was a moment to standout, no?

To be a standout is to not back down from any challenges. Late last year, there was a call for volunteer at the Kakiis’ event at MOS. I went up the stage, and discovered that it was actually a dancing competition. No matter, Pinky was made victim of the day but at the end of the day, I won a 16GB thumb drive.

Being a standout sometimes gets you prizes, yey!


Can you do this cycling thing?

Last but not least, it helps to be able to do some tricks that no one (or almost no one can). One of my most awesome tricks in my bag would be tis finger cycling thing. Check out the video above. Can you do it?

Mellissa was impressed (don’t let her response in the video fooled you ok?!), and I am sure if you have an ability like that, you’d be able to impress lotsa people and be a stand out too!
