A silent wish.


I won't lie. There are days where I miss them immensely. 

Who do I miss?

A group of high school friends that accepted me for who I am, no matter how broken I was.

I miss this particular group immensely because the group is now in pieces. 
We were no where as close as what we were in the past.
We may talk. Or some of us don't even talk.
But it's not the same.
What used to be close companionship was replaced by misunderstanding. And then, that was replaced by us simply moving on with our lives.

And it makes me sad.

I regret not appreciating those moments more.
I regret taking them for granted.
I regret ever hurting them.

I mean, I understand and accept that this is the situation.

But that doesn't mean I don't miss them. Because I do.
And sometimes, I wish, so much, that we could return to those moments.

However, as much as the group is in pieces,
it doesn't mean that it will be in pieces forever.

It can be fixed.
And I know that even if things get fixed, it doesn't mean that it will go back to the way it was.

But I guess, this group has done so much for me. And I just wish that we can continue it.

And no matter what happens, I can safely say that this group will always have a place in my heart.

Losing this group has taught me to treasure other groups and friendships. So, I do treasure all my other friendships and groups too.

But I guess, losing this group has also made me miss them alot.

And I just finished this anime, Free!


This anime connected with me emotionally and for some reason, it made me miss this group of friends even more.

And this anime had a happy ending where at the end, their conflict was resolved and everyone got back together.

It gave me hope.

That maybe, even my group could have such a happy ending.

After all, someone once said, "It's never too late."

So yea.

There is still hope.

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…
