Business Trip. *sigh*

I could have just be at home, playing with the internet...BUT no, my dad has to drag me into his business trip. Well, atleast I was slightly glad that I could travel~~
Anyways, when we reached our destination, we had to go to a meeting. I was stunned...I mean, don't we even get to rest?!
So I went with my dad to the meeting. He kept smiling & said, "Isn't this interesting." I nodded but what I really wanted was a good nap. When I entered the meeting room, I saw so many business looking people.

I looked at them...they were all so damn serious. Unlike my dad, they weren't smiling. Everyone in the meeting room suddenly turned their eyes on me. They were examining me. I hated what I read in their eyes, they thought of me as an annoying child. Damn you, I ain't an annoying child.

Then a man screamed out, "somebody get this kid out of here!"
I was so angry that I wanted to hit him so damn hard!! But before I could do anything my dad gently said, "Please don't. She's my daughter. She's with me."
"Your daughter?!" The man glanced at me.
"Yes..." My father continued smiling.

Then, I could see them all examine me. I am bloody sure they were wondering why would my dad would bring me along. I sighed to myself...I knew it. I was better off at home.
So they begun their meeting. It really felt awkward to be sitting with them.

They were all talking about an exhibition & some other business stuff that I do not understand.
Then, slowly...they started scolding my dad. Can you believe it? People in neat business suits saying vulgar words to scold someone!! So they kept on scolding my dad. I could see my dad turn red. (When I say he turn red, he really does turn red. His eyes, ears & face was becoming red.)

From that moment, I knew my dad was either stress or pissed. The more they scolded, the angrier I became. NOBODY SCOLDS MY DAD (except my mum) AND HOW DARE THEY SCOLD HIM INFRONT OF ME??!!
I wanted to get up & really kill them!! I really felt that way!!

But then again, my dad stopped me. He tapped my shoulder & said, "No, don't do anything rash. I know how you feel but we gotta deal with this."
I sighed & wished that I wasn't here.

Every day of this business trip was terrible. The meetings lasted for 3 damn hours every single day!!
AND when the dreadful meeting was over, the rest of the day was totally BORING!!
Well, not all days were bad...Sunday & Monday was fun. We went out exploring the unknown city that we have been staying in for almost a week.
Seriously, I never wanna be in another busines trip unless it was MY meeting.


I would've hated it if I saw my dad being scolded, but it's business. I would have been really angry inside, though.
I'm not into business, so I thought what you went through is dreadful.
Except with the unknown city part- that's always a great thing to do.

Much Ado About Our Healthcare

During this week, something terrible but hilarious when you looked back, happened to me.

It was a normal Monday morning. It was close to the end of the month, so I was awaiting for my salary to come in. I was just trying to just hold on till the end of the month. Typical monday. Nothing eventful yet.

Then, it was lunchtime.
I went to lunch with my colleagues.
I ordered myself a lovely nasi kukus with ikan keli. That means steamed rice with catfish for those of you who don't read malay. 

One of my colleague often order this and it always looked good so I decided to give it a try.

Bad mistake.

I ended up having a fishbone stuck in my throat. When you think of it, it's pretty silly. But it scared the living daylights out of me at that moment. I tried swallowing rice to push the fishbone down but after half a bowl later, I found it to be not working.

I heard from my dad when I was younger that, if a fishbone get stuck in your throat, you had to do an operation. And that only fueled my fea…

Design Thinking and Steve Jobs

This is going to be a long post and I apologize. 

Anyway my department meeting yesterday talked about design thinking and it only reminded me of Steve Jobs.

I have always loved Apple and Steve Jobs. I know Steve Jobs wasn't the greatest guy ever. He could have been nicer and etc. But this is not about that. This is about his vision, his beliefs and philosophy. I never quite realised how much I believed in Steve Jobs philosophy until I sat down and thought about it. 

I admired Steve Jobs philosophy of design first. I don't know if he was the first guy who made design thinking into a thing. Or if he is the one who popularize that thinking?

Minimalism. Simplicity. Clean. Aesthetics. User friendly. He made sure Apple designs abide by this. And this is what I have always loved about Apple. He made technology sexy, beautiful and cool. 

I never quite realised that I, myself, believed in these values.

But today, as I sat down and think, I realised that, the older I grow, the more I have tu…

Dear me,

I watched an anime where a girl managed to write a letter to her past self of ten years. True, that's not possible in reality but the concept of that is interesting. She wrote to her ten years younger self to avoid her regrets. She wanted her past self to change certain decisions in the past so that her current self won't have any regrets.

Personally, I wouldn't want to tell my past self to change her decisions to avoid regrets. Do I have regrets? Yes. But I won't change them because I learnt from them. And that has been grow as a person. So I don't quite regret that.

However, if I could write a letter to my past self, it would be fun. If I were to write to my ten years younger self, that would be my 13 year old self. And this is what I would love to say.

Dear me,

Hello there. This is your 23 year old self. I know, it's unbelievable. You can barely imagine yourself at that age currently. 
I still remember being 13. Vaguely. My memory isn't that great.

But I remem…
