BRATs Ipoh 2009 (part 1)

Ok, I'm finally part of BRATs! BRATs means :

BRATs Workshop is a workshop about journalism. We really were exposed to a journalist life. If you think a journalist life is easy, well, it ain't. There's crazy deadlines that means, you have to rush your work. We even get to interview an indie band. (I never knew a indie band meant tat it was an independent band).

Anyway, we went street poling. Yup, we went to streets to interview people about their interview. I'm in Video Group One AKA Team Banana.

Our group was pretty awesome. Everyone was just so cool and hyper. I miss everyone!!

Our videographer being very steady and focus. She's so good that it's as if, she was the tripod. Haha, the future VJ, Mark Chan. If I hear his name one more time, I'll puke. (While editing the video, we heard his name a thousand god damn times)

BWAHAHA, one of our interview victims. Poor dude, he got dragged in and was forced to be interviewed.

All of us posing after a hot & tiring day at work. Street poling isn't easy!!

Kuala Kangsar, Perak, Malaysia. It is a beautiful town with a country feel. It does not have the hecticness of the city. I like the old architecture of the buildings. Lovely place. I would love to come back here, one day. But I have a feeling that this town will be a ghost town soon because all the youngsters will move to the city and the old people will die off. It's sad to think that a peaceful & quiet town will die off soon.
We came here because we had to review the food in this town.

Damn it, thanx to this workshop, I am officially a photo addict. I love thinking photos now. Seriously...

Thanx for your comment. I found a website called "Fileden" where you can get a url for songs that you have on your computer's hard drive and from there you can upload them to It took me several months to figure out even how to do that. LOL!

You should make a playlist :-D It's fun to do. The accounts from are free too.

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…

An open letter to the scared and confused dreamers.

This is a letter for myself. But this is also a letter for those who find themselves in the same place as I am.

I'm going to admit that life is different from what I initially thought when I was younger.

When I was younger, I assumed that by now, I would have reached or be somewhat close to the life of my dreams.

But now that I reach this point, I realised that I was wrong. I did not take into account that tertiary education took years. Personally, I don't regret my tertiary education because I did enjoy it. Yes, it was insane and difficult but it was fun and I met amazing people there.

It's been a year since my graduation and I find myself being frustrated. I felt disappointed in myself because no, I don't have my own apartment and no, I'm not rocking that cool ass job that I always  dreamed of. But no, I don't hate my job either. In that sense, I'm fortunate I suppose. But I feel that it may not be the kind of thing that I want to do.

However, for me, to get t…

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…
