How you choose to read that really depends on you.

It could be read as Impossible or I'm possible.

I chose to study Economics and Management in a really, really good university. One of the best actually. And since it's the best, obviously, it's going to be really, really hard.

My coursemates and I were discussing on how hard this course was going to be. 
We heard rumors from our lecturers and seniors that, if there was 40 students in year 1. There will only be 20 students in year 2. And by the time of our graduation, only 5 will remain.
That is how hard it will be.

Not only that, I heard that it is very, very hard to do well in this course. So, you may only get a normal degree that shows that you just passed your degree.

However, if you dropped out and went to another university.  An easier, kinder university, you can get the first class honours (the best degree) very easily.

What they are trying to say is, because it's so hard, you may just barely pass in this university. But if you quit and go to another university, it'll be easier and you can get a first class degree.

But of course, if you do well in this course for this university, you will gain a prestigious degree from the best universities in the whole world.
But if you don't do well, then you will only gain a normal degree.
And the chances of not doing well is higher than doing well. That's what they said, anyway.

So when a coursemate asked if I want to quit, it shocked me.

I decided to take Economics and Management. It suits me. I like this course. And this is one of the best universities in the world. Most of all, I am not a coward.

Yes, it's going to be hard. I never denied that.
So, the only solution is to work hard. To work really hard and really smart. 

After all, this is a gamble for my future. 
But, we all know that, the higher the risk, the sweeter the rewards are.
Yes, the risk is high. 
But I am going to fight for it. I am going to do my best.

After all, I fought in my A-levels before.
Therefore, I can still fight again now.

So yes, I am going to this.
I am going to finish this degree in 3 years time, flat.
And I am going to get a first class honours.

Just you wait and see.

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…
