Once again, standing at the cross road of life.


Here I am, standing at the cross road of life. Every decision I make will help create my future.
Good and bad.

Who doesn't want a good future? Who doesn't want to be happy?

But this is the thing.

To get what you want, you have to fight and sacrifice.

And sometimes, in the end, you won't even get what you want.

I'm young. So young.
I still haven't seen much or felt much.
Yet, my future rest on my shoulders now.
My decision making right now isn't too great.
For I am still young.

Yet, it is now that I have to decide.

Sad thing is, I'm selfish and greedy.

I want everything that I can attain.
I want everything.

And I won't be satisfied until I have it all.

But sadly, sometimes the world won't gives us everything.

Oh well. 

I will do my best and we'll just see how life turns out.

C'est la vie.

I think for some of us, this step in life is a given. It was for me. I had offers... but turned them all down because they weren't anything I wanted to pursue. In the end, what matters is your choice.

Yeah, we don't always get what we want. I have been at the receiving end of that all too many times. In fact, it made me thick-skinned and pushed me to find ways to make it work.

Good luck! Yeah, the world doesn't give us everything but it's all about how we make the most of what we have. Sometimes, what we want may not be the right thing or it's just not the right time yet. That, I believe to be true.

Just hold your head up high and go for your dreams. It's a rocky road I know. Yet people often go through it all before they triumph. =)

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…
