So what?!

Yea, so what if I do not know how to sew and cook. So what? It's not a big deal. I hate the look that everyone gives when they find this out. Does not knowing how to cook or sew make me any less of a girl?

"Girls must know how to cook and sew....I mean, you're a girl."

"Didn't your mother or school teach you how to sew & cook?"
Well, sorry to dissapoint you but my mother didn't have time to teach me & I never really paid attention to any of my home economics classes.(I normally just failed them) The basic of my cooking is making an omelette. But for sewing, I know nothing.

People look at me in disbelief...(even some of friends look at me this way.)
You have to learn it, they say. I normally nod my head & pretend to agree BUT what if I do not want to learn it. Is that so wrong??

How will you survive?
Well, I will...I just will. You don't need to care.

I was brought up by working parents. During my younger years, I was taken care by a nanny. And her job was just to make sure I eat and do my homework. No, don't give me that sad pitiful look. Guess what, I'm fine being brought up this way. Sure, I used to be jealous of kids whose mums are housewives BUT if my mum is a housewife, my life would be quite boring. My mum will make sure I study, that means I won't get to watch TV or go online.

Eventhough, my parents aren't around during the weekdays. They would be around during the weekends to make up for all that lost time. We would always go out & enjoy ourselves. But as I grew up, we just stayed home. Even so, we would spend our weekends catching up with each other.

By being brought this way, I was taught to be independent. I was taught to handle my own issues. I was taught to speak my mind out, to have opinions. Yea, I wasn't those kids who went crying to their mother for a bruised thumb. And yup, I was one of those kids who talked alot in class, sometimes, disagreeing with what the teacher is saying. So yea, teachers thought that I was damn troublesome & annoying.

Well, I seen my parents bringing their paperwork home before. I used to just sit right next to them and watch them. They were so busy...and it amazes me how focus they were in their job.
So yea, I put importance in career. When I was younger, I knew that I want to be a working busy person when I grow up. It looks like so much FUN!
Plus haven't you heard that "To retire is to expire."? Yea, I rather work than to retire. And guess what, those are my parents plans too.

And for your info, I do not have rich parents. My parents are just hardworking people who wanted to make a better life for their children.

And even until today, I still want to be a successful business person. So what if I know more about event management and journalism than I know about cooking and sewing. So what?!

BTW, I just want everyone to know that having working parents isn't wrong or pitiful. Just because my parents are always working, does not make them bad parents. Children of working parents sometimes aren't troubled but instead we're level headed, mature people. So quit assuming that working parents are wrong and kids of working parents needs pity and proper parents.

I'm tired of people telling what I should be. I'm tired of people telling my parents how to educate their children. I'm tired of all of this shit!

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…
