Train Travelling.

I had a pretty awesome day yesterday. All my friend and I did was got on a train, go to somewhere far and have lunch there. Then, come home.

To most people, it may sound ridiculous. Why in the world would anyone want to do that? Isn't it just a waste of time, money and energy? I guess, it's up to you.
I enjoyed it and so did my friend.

I always liked trains so doing this was not hard. I have always wanted to just ride a train to somewhere pretty far and remote while just enjoying the journey. That was exactly what I did yesterday. My friend and I picked a random place to go. Then, took the train there.

I like the feeling of not knowing where you are going, not caring where you are going because the destination don't matter. It's the journey that matters or rather the entire experience.

Frankly, sitting in the train was just so calming and serene. We just talked or enjoyed the scenery during entire journey. I could feel my soul at ease. No stress. Just peace. We had all time in the world so we weren't rushing. We were just enjoying the ride.

My friend and I had a little saying made up, "Train travelling is just the way we meditate." It's true though. People talk about inner peace and happiness. That was all I felt during this little journey.

Then, when we reached our destination, we were definitely lost because we didn't know where we were but thing is, it didn't matter because we didn't have a destination in mind anyway.

We were in a small town and we were in a whole different state. I found that town rather cute. It was small and remote with a train station right next to it. It was like something out of a movie so it was completely adorable.

The town is completely different from where I am from. The pace is much slower and relaxed. There's no rush and the town was pretty simple. I loved it. A complete retreat from my crazy stressful life. The little town had a calming effect too, just like the train ride. 

We found a random restaurant and had lunch there. They gave us pretty good portions and the prices was pretty reasonable. After that, we walked back to the train station.

In the train station, we waited for our train but then, we skipped a few trains just because we didn't like the coaches. After all, we had all day and it didn't really matter. In the station, we just talked and talked.

Honestly, the reason why I loved this so much was that I have never felt so peaceful and relaxed my entire life. My soul was just happy. I completely enjoyed it. This little trip rejuvenated and re-energized me.

I will definitely go on more train travelling. Plus, it's just so easy to do. Pick a far destination and just take a train there. It's simply brilliant.

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…

Alter ego, SUIT UP!!

Man, it feels odd to have people believe in you at the very moment you do not trust yourself. It feels odd to hear people's praises of you when you're feeling incapable. So I guess, it's time for one of my many alter ego to suit up if I wanna win that debate competition!!

Like any other person, I have many alter ego's...and I'm gonna list most of them today.

Ms Drama Queen
Likes :Attention and spotlight. She's a diva.
Dislikes :People stealing her spotlight or not getting her spotlight.
She is : A real drama queen. She whines & complains alot though. She thinks that the world revolves around her.
Can't handle :Ms Productive

Ms Arrogant
Likes : Winning, winning and winning.
Dislikes : Losing and losers.
She is : A real mean arrogant person. She really doesn't care about the other people. She thinks she is the best. Mostly, she thinks that her opponents aren't even her equal unless they have proven otherwise. Even then, she still thinks she is better than …
