Result time.

Exams are over. The moment every student is relieved. But unfortunately, something smacks them in the face. It's call the exam results.
Ugh. The dreaded moment that a student hates.

Some might actually look forward to it because they want to see how well they have done. As for the rest of us, we don't want to see it because we know it sucks. It's just a question of how bad.

So today, I got back my result for my economics paper. It wasn't really good nor was it really bad.
But personally, I think it's definitely below my expectation.

I'm looking at my paper, expecting disappointment to hit me but it didn't come. I wasn't disappointed. Instead, I was motivated and excited which is good.

So instead of wasting time, moping and crying over spilled milk, I am searching for the mistakes that I made. I'm analyzing what went wrong in this paper and thinking on how I can avoid that in the future.

I'm just moving on and thinking on how I can be better instead of concentrating on how I sucked.

I like that. I like how I'm unfazed by the not so great result. 

But it's true.

The past does not equal the future. Just because you suck now, doesn't mean you'll suck in the future. The thing about life is, you make your own choices. You can change any circumstances you are in.

Failure or lack of success is just a learning experience. So learn from it.

Life will kick you in the ass most of time and you just need to learn how to get up from it. So yea.

Right now, I'm looking at my upcoming May AS examinations and I'm saying, "COME AT ME, BRO!"


So yea.

To any students out there, "May the odds be ever in your favor~!" Or to put it simply, "Good luck & stay strong~!

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…

An open letter to the scared and confused dreamers.

This is a letter for myself. But this is also a letter for those who find themselves in the same place as I am.

I'm going to admit that life is different from what I initially thought when I was younger.

When I was younger, I assumed that by now, I would have reached or be somewhat close to the life of my dreams.

But now that I reach this point, I realised that I was wrong. I did not take into account that tertiary education took years. Personally, I don't regret my tertiary education because I did enjoy it. Yes, it was insane and difficult but it was fun and I met amazing people there.

It's been a year since my graduation and I find myself being frustrated. I felt disappointed in myself because no, I don't have my own apartment and no, I'm not rocking that cool ass job that I always  dreamed of. But no, I don't hate my job either. In that sense, I'm fortunate I suppose. But I feel that it may not be the kind of thing that I want to do.

However, for me, to get t…

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…
