Pride and prejudice

Recently, I just watched Pride and prejudice for the billionth time. (You really have no idea how many times I watch this movie!)

I love this movie. (Maybe, I should read the book??) Anyhow, it's obvious Jane Austen is a feminist! She definitely supports independent woman. And the title Pride and Prejudice is perfect since it does play on the theme of pride and vanity.
I don't know if Jane Austen wrote this in the way she imagine her perfect life to be or if she wrote it in skepticism because Jane Austen never married and she never like the idea of marriage.

However, in pride and prejudice, I like the fact that she convey marriage as something pleasant and I agree with her idea of marriage. Marriage is about marrying somebody you, that partner completes you and inspires you. Your partner must be someone you're willing to share a family with.

Now on with Mr.Darcy, I realize that there are many girls out there who loves him. Some people even say he is the perfect man. Somehow, I'm not surprised that people love Mr.Darcy because I love his character too~!!

Sure, he may come off as a arrogant rich unpleasant sort of fellow at first. Even Elizabeth Bennet hates this man at first. But later, we find out that he is a nice, caring, loving, loyal, kind and rich person. Tell me. Which girl wouldn't want such a man? Anyhow, I like the way Jane Austen created his character.

Pride and prejudice is one of my favourite love stories ever...(but then again, I don't know much love stories.)

I love P&P too. I'm really into Brit Lit and P&P is one of my favorite "love stories." The new version of the movie has some awesome-tastic photography. I read the book after watching the movie. Even though I read old 1800's novels all the time, I must say that if I hadn't watched the movie first, I probably wouldn't have understood the book. It helps to put faces to the names.

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…
