Believe in the universe?

This week has been a crazy week, filled with emotions.

One day, it was filled with confusion and doubts. The next day, it was filled with hope. 
Then, it was filled with despair. Later, it was filled with clarity, relief and certainty.

So, as you can tell, this week has been a roller coaster ride.

Thankfully, I had friends by my side as I sat down to think, smile, cry or scream.
Even if they didn't say anything, just knowing that they are by my side really helped me calm down.
Even if all they said was, how was your day? Just knowing that they cared, helped.
And talking helps too.

At first, I thought that my life has fallen apart because my A-levels result was not what I wanted.

But now, I'm beginning to realize that this is just the way the universe was putting everything in place for me.
That even though this hurts, it is for my own good. It is for me.

So, right now, I want to believe in the universe trying to help me.
But the universe can only help you if you also help yourself.
So that means, you have to fight and do your best.
Or else, the universe is just going to hand you crap. It hands you crap because if you don't bother, the universe won't too.
But if show the universe that you mean it, and you do your best to overcome your challenges, internally and externally, the universe will try to see what it can do for you.
And maybe, it may help arrange things to your liking.

Who knows.
But I believe in the universe. Trying to help me.

The universe respond to us the way we asked it...err, never mind. Read somewhere but forgot what it says. But basically if you ask in a positive manner, positive things will come to you. :/

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…
