Baking Day~!



Ok, usually I don't bake or cook. It's not my thing. However, yesterday I had a baking day with my sister and my buddy~!


My parents bought an oven so yea. We just had to use it. 

I never had an oven until now. So even if we wanted to bake, we couldn't. But now, WE CAN~! 


Why my parents never bought an oven? Well, we never thought we need it and true enough, we didn't. My family aren't very good in cooking or baking. Both my parents work and I'm just too lazy. Plus cooking and baking ain't my thing. For some reason, I only like eating but not cooking. My sister on the other hand, wants to cook and bake but she's too lazy too. So yea.


Fortunately, I have an awesome buddy who bakes ALL the time so yea, she came over and helped us cooked or else, my parents wouldn't have let us use the oven. 


First of all, we baked chicken for lunch and dinner.



It's chicken marinated with paprika, black pepper, thyme and garlic. It's very herb-ish, healthy and juicy.
To be honest, I was surprised. It was juicy and delicious~! 



Then, after that, we made chocolate chip cookies.


This is the uncooked dough

The deliciously baked chocolate cookies. 

We didn't bake much, about 64 pieces but since, we ate some and shared it with my buddy, we didn't have much. Sadly, the third batch came out a little burned so yea. We really don't have much but still, it was fun.

It's nice to eat warm chocolate cookies which are fresh out of the oven. I never had that experience and it was pretty nice. First time, I'm eating my own homemade cookies and it's a pretty good feeling.

So yea. We have a pretty awesome oven. It's small but it works~!


 Anyhow, I get why people like to cook and bake their own. First of all, it's cheaper, healthier and tastier. And it's actually quite fun if you cook or bake with other people.


However, reason why I don't like to cook and bake is that it messes up the whole kitchen and it is A LOT of hard work. Then, you have to clean up.
Sometimes, it takes hours to make something but it's eaten in 5 minutes. Yea, sometimes, I feel that it's not worth the effort.


However, it was fun. Baking was pretty awesome.

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…
