Since my final year exam is over, my stress level has really been reduced. I'm so much more relaxed now.

Anyhow, I feel bored. So currently, I'm having my reading mood on~! I would love to read so many books that I haven't read yet but always wanted to read.

So here's a list :
-The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo series by Stieg Larsson
-Hunger Games series by Suzanne Collins
-Leviathan series by Scott Westerfeld
-All of Madeline Wickham books.
-The remains of the day by Kazuo Ichiguro

If you have any good books, please recommend me. Yea, I know I am pathetic for not having read Hunger Games or Stieg Larsson. But that's because I have school and not enough time to read such awesome books. sigh.

I found out that my college library has Stieg Larsson's and Kazuo Ichiguro books, so I'm just gonna borrow them...but I think, I'll have to buy the rest. Sigh.....

But since, I have none of these books, I started rereading Uglies by Scott Westerfeld. I know I read it about a million times but I don't care. I love it!

I like rereading books that have been reread a thousand times. The book feels like a good old friend and rereading it is like revisiting that good old friend. Plus, I can also remember all the past memories and feelings I had when I was rereading this book. So yea, it's always nice to reread a book that has been reread a million times~!

Anyhow, I also joined this NaNoWriMo thing online. It's a challenge - to write a novel (which has 50000 words) in a month (30 days). I only joined on Monday, so yea, I lost 7 days....but whatever. Btw, NaNoWriMo stands for National Novel Writing Month.
I decided to finish off the story that I have been writing which is "World's Apart". So yea. Finally, I might actually finish a novel......

Since my holiday start in two weeks, this is a great activity to do~!! hehe.

So yea, it's a literary festival to me. Reading and writing~!

Cheers to all you, writers and readers out there~~!!

And also My sister's Keeper by Jodi Piccult.

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…
