Well, this year alone, when it comes to writing, I have accomplished alot.

One, I finished a short story (Aletheia)

Two, I finished a novel, (World's Apart).

It feels good to finish my writing. Especially World's Apart. After years and years of both planning and writing, it really makes me happy that it's completed now.

But for World's Apart, it's still unedited. So yes, it's done but it has not been checked or properly edited.
I'm still glad that it's done though. Its' birth feels long overdue.

Anyhow, to celebrate its birth, I got an artist to make a book cover for World's Apart. And the artist is so kind to even make it for free. 

The Book Cover is made by Skye. THANK YOU, DEAR~!! HOW CAN I EVER REPAY YOU?!!
Look at the book cover, it's so beautiful. I really love it. It really makes my novel feel edgy, radical and absolutely cool. Whether or not, that is true, I really don't know.
But it sure makes me want to read my own novel. Hehehe.

Being able to complete the novel somehow proves to me that I am legitimate writer now. Hehehe.

My dad talked to me and asked me to publish my writings. This really made me a little confused. I mean, I write because I just need to. I have stories in my head and they just need to be released.

But to publish? Now, I am not sure if I want to do that. But then again, it doesn't seem like a bad idea to publish. 

Publishing is a lot of hard work. You need to get an editor and a publishing house that agrees to publish your work. Or if you self publish, that's also alot of hard work.

Right now, I don't know if I want to publish but it certainly is an option.

Anyhow, even though I don't know whether or not if I want to be a real bonafide writer, I decided to update MY WRITING page on this blog.

And I decided to add a CONTACT ME page where anyone who is interested in my writings can contact me or wants to make requests or whatever it is they want to contact me about.

time go so fast !!

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…
