Left Behind...?

Everyone around me,
begin to fasten their pace,
I am the only idiot who stumbles & falls,
Their pace were too fast for me,
I couldn't really catch up,
I tried my best to fasten my steps,
Forcing my legs to continue on no matter what.

As time passed,
I realize I have fallen so far behind,
The people in front of me,
Seemed like a distant shadow,
My friends saw me in this horrid state,
They ushered me on,
Cheering me,
I smiled weakly at them,
Asking them to carry on,
It is not that I didn't want them to wait for me,
But how could I be so selfish,
To strip them the chance to win this race,
They look at me with doubt,
Unwilling to leave,
I insisted for them to leave.

When everyone left,
And I was alone,
For a brief moment,
I kneeled on the ground quietly,
Catching my breath,
Streching my legs,
I knew I must continue this race,
The voice in my head,
Told me to carry on and to hold on,
I knew I must carry on.

I got up,
Hastening my steps,
Trying to just catch up,
Even though I am currently in the last place,
I know I must still continue,
Never ever giving up,
Who knows,
Someday, my legs will gain it's strength,
My body will be stronger,
My mind sharper,
And just maybe,
Maybe one day, I will win the race...

I will continue to walk...I promised myself.

Don't you ever get jealous when everyone around you is successful? Well, I do... I am only human. Of course, I'm glad that they succeeded, at the same time, I wished I was as successful as them.
Sometimes, this jealousy made me feel even more belittled. And when, it's your friend who succeeded...the feelings are even more confused. Well, of course, I will be happy for my friend but at the same time, I longed for their success.
So from now on, I will do my best to catch up with them. I will be stronger & do my best to succeed. That is the only thing to do if I want this jealousy feeling to go away.

I will matter what. And if you are also feeling hopeless, do not frown. You can do it too...I know you can. Actually, everyone can succeed. It is just a matter of how much you are willing to sacrifice.
Let's do this together,
Let's all succeed...(That includes YOU!!)

Hmm...I really feel you too. It sucks when everyone succeeds & you don't.
Sometimes, I just hate those perfect people who are good at everything but I guess they are just perfect.
Yea, good luck to you. I hope we all can succeed too but the world don't work that way.
So, just live your life...and enjoy it.
You don't have to be perfect...

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…
