Humans are complicated!

I'm a complicated. You're complicated. We're all complicated. Humans are complicated. Full stop. Period. That is the number one rule we should all remember and follow. Humans are complicated. We can't claim that we know that person fully because we don't. Sometimes, we just really don't know what's going through their mind.

I hate it when people say that they understand how we feel. Well, they don't and they have no clue. They're not me and they don't understand the situation. And they won't react the same way I react to a certain situation. Therefore, they don't understand.

Yea, even I'm complicated. I mean, I can't say that I have self-esteem because sometimes my self-esteem is super high and sometimes, my self-esteem hits rockbottom. And recently, I hate to admit this but my self-esteem has been pretty low.

Well, it's because I'm afraid. I'm really afraid. What if I just fail, fall flat on my face? Will I ever pick up the pieces? Will my life end? Will I give up? What will I do?
And I just needed assurance. I needed to hear that everything is ok. I need to know that I can go home and have a shoulder to lean on. I need to know that I will be supported as I pick up the pieces of my life and try to stick back together.

Thankfully, I heard what I need to hear and maybe even more. Those words reassured me.

And if my friends and family can support and believe me. I don't see why I can't. If my family and friends can believe that I have potential to succeed? I don't see why I can't succeed.

It feels good to support someone who needs it. Like how I told a friend that I supported her no matter what and I'll be around to help her. Her face light up and that felt nice.

Maybe that's what we need. We need to start supporting others and each other. When you support others, you also support yourself. We don't need to understand each other because we never will. But we do need support. We just need to know that there is someone around when we need a shoulder to lean on. That is all we need to know.

Hopefully, I will not fail or have to pick up any pieces.

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…
