Depressing week

It has been a depressing week. Everything just seems so depressing or indifferent. Seriously, I have been feeling like this for the entire week. Everything is so anti-climatic since the BRATs Ipoh 2009 Journalism Workshop.

...exams results are out and unfortunately, I did NOT do well in them.
English Language ~ D-
Mathematics ~ F
Science ~ C-
Economics ~ A-
History ~ D-
Accouting ~ F

*sigh* I have 2 F's. Report Card Day will be next week and I can already imagine my parents killing me. (I'm so sure my mum is going to ban me frum the internet & TV)

Anyway, to top things off, I was reading yesterday newspaper. Well, there was an article about the winners of a video competition. My friends and I joined that competition and we won the 2nd place. However, we did not go to the prize-giving ceremony because we all had things to do. (I went to BRATs Workshop...so I can't be in 2 places at once.) In addition, they changed the venue & the date of the prize-giving ceremony so...that was why we couldn't go.

*sigh* IF we went to the prize-giving ceremony, we could have been interviewed and maybe our pictures could be published in the newspaper. I wanted to imagine about this....(Don't I deserve to be in the spotlight once in a while?)

I went to skool and told my friends about this newspaper article thing. She actually said that she didn't mind not being interviewed because she appeared in the newspaper thrice already so...she didn't really care.
Somehow that pissed me off, real bad. Ok, maybe YOU have been in the newspaper...BUT HELLO, this isn't about YOU! YOU did NOT do all the work. IT WAS TEAMWORK!
WE DID IT TOGETHER!! I just thought that she was being a little selfish to say that.

I just wanted to snap at her. But I had to calm myself up and tell myself that she just saying what she thinks. Sometimes, I want her to know that it's NOT all about HER. It's about TEAMWORK. Rushi, Qi-chan and I worked in this too.

Even so, not everything was bad... The AFS interview went fine. I think I did well. I hope I get to go to Japan for free~~! Yup... *crosses fingers*

Eventhough, we did not go to the prize-giving ceremony, we still won ourselves a Nokia N95. Finally, a new phone for ME! I have been using my crappy phone for 5 years. It's bout time for a new phone.

BYE, my crappy phone.(my phone looks something like this)

Yup, this has been a crappy week. Well, atleast, not everything sucked. I wonder why I don't feel happy about the new phone right now.**sigh* Maybe, the happiness will hit me later?

Hey there. Sounds like a not-so-fun week :( At least you got a new phone out of it. And it's shiny!! :-D I don't even own a cellphone. We don't get cellphone service where I live because the area is so rural :P

Anyways, all the flairs on my blog I find on Facebook. They're fun :) You can save up and get points to get new ones and then you can make them or add them to a flairbook. They're pretty nifty :) Prolly one of the best parts of Facebook. LOL!

Anyways, I hope you don't get grounded :/ Hang in there!

Sorry~ *bows deeply* If this could cure~

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…
