Imagine that your college is in place A. And that's where you are studying.
Then, people tells you that, for one subject, since you are the only one taking that subject, you will have to go all the way to place B to study it.

They say, don't worry.
They'll pay for transport. And make sure that your timetable subjects in place A don't clash with timetable subject in place B.

Well, this is what I am experiencing for the subject Sociology.

Personally, I didn't have much problems with it except for a dislike of having to travel to two different places to study.

Then, I attended my first class for Sociology. 

That was when I realized I absolutely HATED this idea.

1. The holidays clash. 

So that means if I'm on holiday for place A, I'm not on holiday for place B.

2. Group discussions. 

For place A, since I'm there for three subjects, it's not a problem to have group discussions. I mean, I see those classmates more often and I have time to see down with them to have group discussions.

But for place B, I'm only there for one subject. So that means, I only go to the classes. Place A provides transport for the classes only, anyways. Meaning, I am not going to hang around the place. And since my timetable differ from the classmates there, how am I going to discuss with them?

3. Waste of Time.

Travelling back forth from Place A to Place B for one subject, really is a waste of a time.

4. Place B

Since I'm not familiar with Place B, I actually got lost while searching for my classroom in Place B. It was annoying.
And I don't like getting lost.

Most of the(aka all) unis have separate different subjects in to different branches. Ahh but they should at least have all your subjects in the same branch. So no need to move from Place A to B it's tiring.

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…
