Money, money, money!

Recently, I just watched Wallstreet 2 : Money Never Sleeps. And yes, it was an awesome film. I liked how it was about wealth, speculation, manipulation and more.

Thanks to this film, I'm going to watch the stocks from now on and regularly checking the business/economics section.

This movie made me think.

Currently, the world is still recovering from the 2008 economic meltdown. But will we learn from this meltdown and be more careful? I don't think so.
In the 1990's, there was another economic meltdown and we didn't learn from that. That's why the 2008 meltdown existed.
Maybe this time, we'll learn? I doubt we'll learn this time.

You see, when the economy recovers once more, people will become confident. And that confidence will cause people to spent, spent and be reckless with their finances.
THEN, BOOM, another economic meltdown will happen again.

I don't think we can ever prevent meltdown's. WHY? Simple, because when there are good times, there must be bad as well. It's nature's law.

However, Wallstreet 2 : Money Never Sleeps is right about ONE thing. When the next economic meltdown happens, it should be the worst.
We're lucky we made it out alive from the 2008 meltdown but the next one will be big.
It will end alot of things.
Alot of people will suffer.
Situations will be dire.
And to make it worst, with the internet around, the meltdown will happen faster and it'll be hard to stop.

PS, the sharemarket never panic. People do and that cause shares to fall flat. And people panic due to perceptions and rumours so beware of what you hear.

What can we do? There's nothing we can do except prepare ourselves.

Yea, I sound so business smart.(hehe)

But seriously, I might wanna join the wallstreet because of this. Well, I have always liked money, business and economics.

And yes, greed happens. That's why people want more and more.


ya !!
money money !!
no money no talk !!


But remember ... money all for all de ya !!

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…
