Seasonal Wishes from Circle...

Wishing you hope, peace, love, joy, and the very best for 2012 (the year of the Dragon)!!!

In lieu of the traditional, Circle has opted to distribute holiday e-greetings (past cards drew from Chinese proverbs, ancient rune translations, etc.). This year's message was written by Robert L. Peters.

In Support of Movember 2011...


Movember2011, originally uploaded by Adrian J.K. Shum, CGD.

I've decided to participate in this year's Movember movement in support of prostate cancer initiatives... it's gonna be interesting.

During November each year, Movember is responsible for the sprouting of moustaches on thousands of men’s faces, in Canada and around the world. With their “Mo’s”, these men raise vital funds and awareness for men's health, specifically prostate cancer.

On Movember 1st, guys register at Movember.com with a clean-shaven face. For the rest of the month, these selfless and generous men, known as Mo Bros, groom, trim and wax their way into the annals of fine moustachery. Supported by the women in their lives, Mo Sistas, Movember Mo Bros raise funds by seeking out sponsorship for their Mo-growing efforts.

Mo Bros effectively become walking, talking billboards for the 30 days of November. Through their actions and words, they raise awareness by prompting private and public conversation around the often ignored issue of men’s health.

At the end of the month, Mo Bros and Mo Sistas celebrate their gallantry and valor by either throwing their own Movember party or attending one of the infamous Gala Part├ęs held around the world by Movember, for Movember.

You can support my Mo-growing efforts by donating to the cause: http://mobro.co/AdrianShum - thanks for your support!!!

2011 Driven Show, a set on Flickr.

Yesterday, I had the pleasure of attending the 2011 Driven Show - the Aftermarket Car Event of the Year. For all you car enthusiasts out there, you should definitely check out this photo set that I uploaded to Flickr.

Sadly, this was a one day event in Winnipeg, so unfortunately you've missed out on the opportunity to see it in person. Hopefully, you'll get the chance to see it next year! I highly recommend it if you're a fan of cars, import models, tuners, body/engine kits.
