Writing?

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.

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…

Alter ego, SUIT UP!!

Man, it feels odd to have people believe in you at the very moment you do not trust yourself. It feels odd to hear people's praises of you when you're feeling incapable. So I guess, it's time for one of my many alter ego to suit up if I wanna win that debate competition!!

Like any other person, I have many alter ego's...and I'm gonna list most of them today.


Ms Drama Queen
Likes :Attention and spotlight. She's a diva.
Dislikes :People stealing her spotlight or not getting her spotlight.
She is : A real drama queen. She whines & complains alot though. She thinks that the world revolves around her.
Can't handle :Ms Productive


Ms Arrogant
Likes : Winning, winning and winning.
Dislikes : Losing and losers.
She is : A real mean arrogant person. She really doesn't care about the other people. She thinks she is the best. Mostly, she thinks that her opponents aren't even her equal unless they have proven otherwise. Even then, she still thinks she is better than …
