Last Monday, I had to cook dinner for my family because the caterer thought we didn't want our dinner tonight. There was a HUGE miscommunication. And since, I'm home early...I got the responsibility to make my family dinner.

At first, I was shell shocked. I mean, are you kidding me? Me, cook? Are you really serious? My cooking skills do not go beyond microwaved meals, scrambled eggs & boiling canned soup. So this was gonna be a little interesting.
But my parents insist I make dinner because they were coming late tonight & they didn't feel like eating out. So forcefully, I took that challenge.

I walked around the pantry & found some stuff. Then, I decided to make spagetti for dinner~!

Thank god for instructions. I was just following it.

I sliced some ham so that I can put in the sauce & make it more delicious~!!

Really, thank god for Dolmio spagetti sauces.

My mum really love Dolmio spagetti sauce. SO she always buys this stuff in case of emergencies like this one.

Yay, it's all turning out fine~! No troubles~!


Doesn't that look good? Well, that looks pretty awesome~! And to it make more healthier, I added some peas.
Dude, it does taste good & I'm very happy about it.

So, maybe...maybe I do like cooking...(in a way) What I don't like is the cleaning up after all that mess. Now I know why cooking is tiresome.
Ok, I think I'll stick to microwaved meals.

Ohhhh! Looks good. I love cooking and baking and stuff like that. Well, I usually do. My sister only eats muffins so I'm constantly having to bake muffins and I get tired of making the same thing over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over get the idea. But yeah. I love doing sihes too. I know, I'm weird. I derive satisfation from seeing dirty things being made clean. Don't ask me why. If I had the money I'd go and be psychoanalized, but for now I'll just be disgustingly clean.

Anyways, good job! :)

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…
