Cambridge A levels.

This is gonna be a really long post. Don't say I didn't warn you. *cheeky smile*

Well, my A level will come to an end in a few more months. Honestly, this course has been a very interesting course.

A level is a pressure cooker where you are under constant stress and there's not much breathing space.
Frankly, it's like all Pre-University courses, it's tough. Trust me, if you survive Pre-U, you'll be able to survive anything. Yes, it's that bad.

But the thing is, I have learnt and experienced so much in this past year. I have even seen parts of myself that I have never seen before.

In that sense, A levels taught me so much. It tortures me, true enough but out of every storm, I learn something. I see things in better clarity now.

As much as I have learnt, I realized that there are many things that I need to learn and need to improve on myself.

I promise myself to continue learning.

In A levels, I have laughed the loudest, cried the hardest, hurt the most, have irritating frustration, paralyzing fear and also found blissful peace.

I can be laughing one minute and then, being completely angry next.

Sure, I sound psychotic but you know what, at least, I feel. At least, I'm alive.

So, as crazy Cambridge A levels is, I would like to thank it for helping me learn so much about me and life.

I would also like to thank my family for being so kind and supportive during my most craziest, angriest and annoying moments.

And to everyone who's taking A levels, I wish you all the best and just keep holding on (have hope). You never know what is going to happen. 

And remember, life is a journey~! Enjoy 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…
