Icarus.

It's a story of a man who was given wings made out of feathers and wax. With these wings, he could fly. However, he was told not to fly near the sun or else, it will melt and he will fall.




Icarus flew happily in the sky with the wings that he was given but then, he saw the sun. It was round, bright and just so beautiful. He wanted to see it closer and so, he flew towards it.



Unfortunately, he flew too close to the sun and his wings melted. He fell, all because he wanted to touch the sun.



Frankly, I don't know if I'm like Icarus. Am I dreaming the impossible dream? I'm not perfect but all I can do is my best. But is my best enough?
Am I going to close to the sun? Will my wings melt? Maybe, just like Icarus, I was never meant to touch the sun?



However, I'm still gonna try to fly. Maybe, my wings will melt. Maybe, it won't. 
But even if I fall, I want to be proud for at least trying. If I do fall, I know I won't be too sad. After all, that's the sun I am looking at. It's meant to be hard.

But if I fail it just means that maybe, I have a different path to walk and I'll just walk a new different path. 
I learnt that everyone has a different path and you should never compare. I also learnt that even if you fall, you just need to slowly pick yourself up and walk back on your path or make a new path.

That's life. It's never definitive. Even if you can't touch the sun, you can always try to touch the moon.

All I can say to myself is, just keep walking.

However, it would be nice if I could touch the sun.

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…
