Friendship.


Sometimes, it's not about the words you say.
It's about understanding.

All we need in life, sometimes, is to know that they are people who would catch you when you fall and hold your hand when you cry.
You just want someone to be there for you and to tell you that everything would be alright.

And I am so thankful that I have friends who have been there for me.
And I really, really want to repay them back by being there for them.

I had "friends" last time that said that, "If you don't tell me that you are in trouble, how in the world would I know?"
And I remember how that made me so mad.

Because if you were my friend, you would know that I don't like telling my problems freely. I just don't because I don't want to burden or annoy you with my problems.

The friends that I thought would be there for me, weren't. But the friends that I never thought would be there for me were and I am so damn thankful.

Like the gifs above, my friends held me tight when I was going through my hardest times and told me to not give up. They whisper to me, to fight and to hold on.
Well, they didn't exactly hold on to me tightly. But it sure felt like they did.

And I am so very thankful.

Sometimes, we can be silent but it says more than we ever need to say. 
During that time, I didn't tell anyone that I was sad and my friends didn't say that they would be there for me.
But they were just there and they knew and then, I knew that they knew and I knew that they were trying to comfort me.
And that's all I needed. To understand that everything is going to be alright and that they would always be here for me.
That if I wanted to cry, it's ok.
 
This is why I feel so thankful for them. I want to say more and show them how grateful I am to them.
I just hope that they will know.

Everything do matter. A text, a message or a call. It matters and I do remember. 
So, thank you, my friends for being there for me, no matter what.
I really really want to be there for you too.

If you ever just sat down and truly asked how I felt and tried to comfort me,
then, you are my friend and you are a good friend.
Thank 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…

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…
