Should I?!

So, I saw both my close friends playing the piano.

They looked so graceful & happy. And the music that was played was quite lovely. (It wasn't exactly perfect but it was good.) Since I grew up in a music loving family, music is something I naturally liked. Well, my father especially love classical music and he made sure my sister & I loved classical music. However, my mother likes rock & roll...songs that she can sing to. Therefore my family loves music alot, even so, not a single soul in my family plays a music instrument.
Most people would sent their children to piano classes but my parents didn't. They just felt that if we wanted to learn something, we would ask for it. So my parents never forced to do anything we hated...(excluding school, homework, chores & being polite)

Well, I never liked the piano. Some people will see the piano & gawk at it but even at a tender age, I didn't really care much for the piano. One of my cousins played the piano & one day, she wanted to teach me to play the piano. She tried to teach me but oddly, I just didn't understand. Therefore, I never really actually love the piano.

And one day, I saw my other cousin played the violin. She performed for my grandparents on their birhtday. The violin was so elegant, so beautiful & so soft. I never seen such a beautiful thing in my life. I've seen a piano, a cello, a flute & even a trumpet but I never thought of them as beautiful intruments. I guess...I fell in love with the violin. My cousin allowed me to touch her violin. As I stroked the violin, I could feel the soft wood just seem so magical.
And from that day, I took violin lessons. I really forced my parents to let me play the violin.
Unfortunately, I had to stop playing the violin due to money problems & tutor problems. And so I haven't touch the violin in 4 years...I forgotten everything I learned about the violin.
As I saw my friends play the piano so passionately, I was somehow reminded of my violin lessons.
How I play again...
But should I play?
Because I don't know where to look for a tutor & can my parents afford it?
Should I??

Go and play the violin!!!
I always wanted to play the violin when I was a kid, but I was too lazy to try. >_>
I fell in love with the guitar soon after...

Hm, well it's really hard to tell you if you have teachers around your area because I don't live where you live.

I would suggest buying some kind of beginner violin books that would teach you. Also, the book might awaken some memories. ;]

Good Luck~!
Thanks for the comment! :)
Yeah, I think I just might go. It would make it less boring.

I was reading about instruments the other day and the person wrote,
"You never lose the stuff that you learn from an instrument, but you can get rusty at it. We never forget how to ride a bike and we don't forget how to play an instrument."

It reminded me of your current situation. I hope it shed some light.

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…
