Cosplaying Woes and Problems??!!

Things that people didn't tell you about cosplay.

First, you have to choose a character to cosplay. This part isn't easy. I mean, there's SO many characters to choose from. Not only that, you have to consider your body size with character that you choose.

Like for me, I'm a short person so that means all the tall anime characters are out of the picture for me.

IT was slightly hard to choose for me.

But in the end, I chose Kanmuri Shigeru from Yakitate Japan.

HE's short just like me and he isn't one of those stupid annoying characters. He's a smart character with a nice heart.

So I thought he was perfect.

Then, it's buying your freaking costume. It doesn't help that these costume cost a freaking bomb.
The hard part is finding the right perfect costume and paying for it.
Good quality ones are very expensive. It's hard to find good quality costumes with affordable prices...but luckily, I managed to find one.

A friend helped me to order it and pay for it. I just paid to her. After all, I'm no good at all these shipping thing and paypal stuff.

THE WAIT for the costume is excruciating!! Eventhough I know it'll come in a month, it's still bloody torture.
And it didn't help that my costume arrived LATE!

Unfortunately, I did NOT go for the AGC event to cosplay because I fell sick on that day.

So for me, all that torture in the beginning is not even worth it because I didn't even get to cosplay! So no, I didn't even get to have fun with my costume.

Now, the main problem is....What do I do with the costume?

Yes, WHAT THE HELL AM I GONNA DO WITH THE COSTUME?? And the worst part is, I never even wore it before.

I feel like throwing it out but when I start thinking about the price, I can't throw it out. And it doesn't help that I love the pink wig! I know it's freaking pink but it's a beautiful wig and I love it!

For me, cosplay is not exactly a great hobby. There's too much to do and it cost a lot. The worst thing is, you won't even know what to do with costume afterwards.
And you can only cosplay in AGC events with other cosplayers.

So no, I don't think I will take cosplay as a hobby. And I don't recommend this hobby to anyone. It's not that I'm dissing cosplay. I'm just saying it's not exactly my cup of tea.

But since, I never had my fun of cosplaying yet. I might cosplay this year using the same costume or I might I get another one.

If I cosplay this year, I would cosplay as :

Victorique from GOSICK

Kino from KINO NO TABI

Kanmuri Shigeru from YAKITATE JAPAN (yea, just reuse my current costume.)

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…
