Letters Vs Emails

Christmas is coming.

   

Obviously, I'm in a Christmas mood~! For some reason, I feel like mailing my friends Christmas Cards. Maybe, it's my Christmas spirit talking or it's the Christmas mood? 

So, for the last few days, I've been searching for my friends addresses. I lost my contact book....That means, I have to text, facebook or call my friends up for their addresses.

I know that mailing is pretty lame. But you know what, I still think it's kinda great. Personally, I have never received any personal letters through the mail but once, I got a letter, confirming that I'm an organ donor. For some crazy reason, I was so HAPPY that I had a letter.

For me, I love handwritten letters. In high school, I often wrote letters for my friends during their birthdays. And when I get a handwritten letter from them, I feel so happy.


I know e-cards do exist. So why should I mail real cards? Mailing cost money. You have to buy the cards, get envelopes and stamps.

E-cards are FREE of charge and it's even better than mail. When you send it, you know that they received it instantly.
Mail takes time and sometimes, mails get lost. So yea. Why mail when you can do it via the internet?

I still prefer sending letters and real cards anyway. 

Why?

Handwritten letters and real cards shows the effort a person puts in.

Emails and e-cards don't have that same feeling that letters and real cards have.

Reading something a friend email you is sweet. But reading a real handwritten letter is even more touching and sweeter.

I know this is dying tradition but whatever.

I haven't mailed it yet. I have to buy the stamps. Anyhow, if you are my friend and you want me to mail you want. You can email me your address via my facebook, twitter or email.

Hopefully, I can mail it by next week.

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…
