Two of my favourite things.

So, on a lovely Sunday, my friend and I met up. We did two of our favourite things on that lovely day.

First, we had tea and cakes.


Tea, it does wonders.
It soothes and calm the soul while revitalizing the body. 

As for cake, it refreshes the body and give it the energy it needs to carry on.

Yes, I love tea and cakes. 
We eat it all the time.
Only problem is that it makes us broke. LOL.

Then, we went train travelling.


Taking a train to go far, far away.

It was something my friend and I really wanted.
But this is reality.
There's no ticket to far, far away.
The rail tracks do not go on forever as it does reach the end.

But we tried.
We took the train to a station that is quite far away.
We chose a station that we didn't know.
Then, we ride.
Until we reach there.

Later, we walk a while and took a taxi to go to a place even further away.
Only to come back to the station to talk and wait for the next train.
And just like that, we go home.

But I love doing this. So much.

It's as if, time stopped and didn't matter.
It's as if, all the troubles melted away for a moment.
It's as if, as the train moved further on, so did our reality.

It didn't mattered where we were going.
It didn't mattered that we were lost.
Just riding the train.
Just discovering a whole new place.
Makes it all so beautiful.

There was a silent comfort.
There was a comfortable feeling.
There was a unsaid peace.

There's just a beauty I can't describe.


And to make things better, the weather was cooling and cloudy.
It looked like it was going to rain.
That just made it even more peaceful and beautiful.

So yes. I did two of my favourite things on a lovely Sunday.

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…
