Puppet Kaos - where Kelvin Kao plays with puppets and tell random stories

Career Change: Koala’s March

So the other day I was thinking about my professional life. I do iOS development, which has treated me well but in the end, isn’t what I was the most passionate about. Puppetry? Well, that’s a little bit closer, but not quite either. I’ve decided to quit my job and pursue my true passion. And that passion is Koala’s March.

Ever since I was a kid, I love these koala cookies. These are bite size snacks with chocolate filling that has drawings of koalas on them. The old ones have the koala playing a drum, kicking a soccer ball, etc. But since then, they have expanded the varieties quite a lot.

Now I want to take it more seriously and pursue koala cookie design. I mean, think of all the possibilities! The koala-shaped cookie is a blank canvas. On it you can draw all these different characters! You can have a koala-pig hybrid. You can have someone you met in high school. You can also have video game characters! See my wonderful drawings? I used to lack confidence, but now that I got an ego, everything just looks so much better!

My friend Dave once said, “Most people move on from childhood and leave it behind. I feel like Kelvin managed to take his grammar school years with him and has continued to develop them throughout his adulthood.” Well, he’s damn right! Now that I am full of myself (just like a child), I can go pursue my childhood dream!

Wish me luck! Here’s more of my koala drawings on my Flickr album.

    Hi kelvin,

    I was wondering why you remained in iOS development. I knew there was something else about your amazing skills and hidden desires to pursue happiness. Just forget about iOS development and puppets and fully concentrate in koala cookie design; I can see by your drawings you have a bright future there!

    My only complain is…why Rick Astley…why…ahhhhhh!

    Yes, please never give him up, let him down, run around or hurt him.
