Parents-Lecture Day.

Last Saturday, a dreaded day came. It's called, Parents-Lecture Day. 

It's a lovely day where your parents and lecturers meet to discuss how their child is doing. My parents were excited to meet my lecturers. Point is, they want to see if I am doing well. 

Surprisingly, most of the lecturers said that I was an alright kid. You know, the usual normal kid who doesn't causes too much trouble. My parents were glad with that. I'm glad with that as well.

However, my parents were shocked that I almost failed my GP paper. I was shocked too - I skipped her class so I didn't know my results. I only found out, then. 

 
It was odd though when my GP lecturer talked to my parents. Honestly, I wanted to skip her and to make sure my parents didn't meet her. But she saw me and waved at me so I was forced to drag myself and my parents to meet her.

I didn't exactly like my GP lecturer. I felt that she was unprofessional and annoying. She talked to my class as if we were a bunch of idiots but it didn't help that my class has quite a few loud annoying idiots. And in her class, I always felt ignored.

I was asked to shut up when I am discussing with my friends that is related to the topic that she is lecturing about. So to me, yea, she was unprofessional. GP is a time to discuss, not a time to tell your students to STFU. So yea. In my eyes, she was immature. I thought that she was a disgrace to other lecturers.




However, during the talk, she talked in a complete mature manner with professionalism. It shocked me. The first thing I thought of was, why the hell didn't she behave like this in class? When she saw my expression, it seemed that she knew what I was thinking so she explained that she had to dump down her standards to accommodate the weaker students in my class.




Ugh.


It made me mad. Why didn't she explain earlier? It almost caused me to fail my GP paper.


If I knew this, I would have done things differently.


Ugh.


Oh well. Sigh. What has passed has passed. I should just let it go.




By the way, my grades are alright. Not the best but not the worst either.


I am close to my goal but I am not there yet.


It excites me that my goal is close by and the fact that it is achievable. So next semester, I am gonna work my ass off to achieve this goal.

YEA, I CAN DO IT~~~~~!!!!!

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…
