You may remember I wrote about the new short movie series by Johnnie Walker called “THE PACT” a while ago, when episode one came out.
Well you should go and check out episode two now!
After being ‘fired’ by his friends to pursue his real dream of being a world class filmmaker Jason seems to be having a tough time getting to work and getting inspired.
The 4 friends have to manage without Jason for a while as he is constantly locked up writing, I can sympathize with this from both sides. Having a heavy project deadline can keep you confined for long hours for weeks sometimes, or even being away on an overseas project you can be away from your friends.
Plus the same goes the other way round, sometimes friends just disappear for a while, most often because of a love interest but sometimes for other reasons too like work or family issues.
The 3 show they are there for Jason when he needs them though and that he can get through his block, he gave his word to them so he shows his perseverance.

In conjunction with this Johnnie Walker have also selected 6 local characters to represent this campaign locally, these six individuals, (also known as the Johnnie Walker Personalities) come from different career paths and each tell a story depicting themes that see the individual living the Johnnie Walker’s ‘Keep Walking’ way of life.
The next to be introduced is Oon Khim Boo, for him learning is a constant undertaking and it fuels his ambitions. Inspired from a variety of sources, he has tried to ensure that whatever he does he learns something that can be applied to his own life or business.
“I wanted to become a successful entrepreneur from a young age and always looked up to individuals who built their business empires from the ground up. This was because my mother told me about people like Hong Kong tycoon Li Ka Shing and Genting founder Lim Goh Tong, who came from poor backgrounds yet made their fortunes thanks to hard work and business acumen” he comments.
He was also strongly inspired by his father, who started a furniture manufacturing company from the ground up and which employed over 200 staff. The business however suffered during the Asian financial crisis a decade ago.
“My father’s accomplishments showed me that with determination, you can start anywhere at any age, and with enough effort, you can be successful. It was at this point that my confidence in my own abilities was instilled” he added.
Before we end this part of Khim Boo’s journey, we would like to leave you with one of his favorite quotes by Vince Lombardi, the head coach of the Green Bay Packers of the National Football League (NFL) in the United States from 1959-67 and who won five league championships during his 9 years.
“The difference between a successful person and others is not a lack of strength, not a lack of knowledge, but rather a lack in will” — Vince Lombardi
