Moving forward.

screw my one post per week. I have something to say and I'll say it now. forgive me if it seems incoherent. 


Seeing all my friends move on or move forward in life is good. I'm so glad that they are.
Just like them, I'm moving forward too.

I hope that we can move forward in life together. I really hope so.

Anyhow, I hope that all of us can become stronger and fight for whatever we dream of. I hope that we can be happy in the life we lead.
I hope I can be there for them just like how they have been there for me.

As for friendships, when we find friends that are dear to us and can accept us for who we are, we'll appreciate them.
And so, I'll appreciate every friend I have.

I will do as what I have always done. Be nice, be supporting and be me.
That's the only way to make new friends, keep and reconnect with old ones.
To be sincere is the best way.

I'm thankful for having great friends.
I know I'm not alone. for the first time,in a long time.

For the first time, after a long time, I get to experience the friendships that anime characters experience.
And it's nice.

I guess, we are all growing up. Bit by bit. 
I like that.
And I can hope that we can grow together and that our friendships would last.
But if it doesn't.
I'll still understand.

True friends are friends that are there for you, accepts you for who you are and believes in you even when no one believes in you (including yourself).

I can only be glad that I have that.

when you find someone that accepts you,
when you learn to accept yourself,
when you stop pretending and be you,
you will never ever go back to pretending.
because it's simply liberating to be you and to have people still stand by you.

thank you to everyone who accepts me for me.



Anyhow, I also have anime to thank. For saving me from a dark pit and for inspiring me.

Law of Ueki.
Thank you.
Ueki, thank you for reminding me of what is important. 

Chihayafuru.
Thank you.
Thank you for motivating me. For telling me that, sometimes, you fail despite doing your best. But failing isn't the end of the world and it isn't the end of the road. There's always next time. 
Thank you for telling me that you only have the right to cry over something if you tried your best.
Thank you for showing the characters getting up, despite the painful fall.
Thank you for making them humans, with issues and them, triumphing over it.
Thank you for showing that everyone has dreams and that dreams don't die.

So, right now, I'm standing up against everyone who thought I was a freak for loving anime or for loving whatever I love. Say it again. And say it slowly, in front of me.
I DARE YOU.

I have fallen in love with Japan's culture. And that's the reason why I love anime and Japan.

One day, I'll go to Japan. Definitely.
I just want to experience their culture and their world.

So yea.
If you find me, more crazy on anime or Japan or whatever it is I love, it's not that I have changed.
It's just that, I choose to express what I love more.

I'm done with hiding or being what I'm not.

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…
