P-P-P-Polaroids~~!



I know that they aren't called polaroids anymore. But that's what I call them. So yea.

Anyhow, a few days ago, I was celebrating my friend's birthday with some other friends.

And we had a polaroid camera.

They took several pictures.

In the end, they had a whole bunch of pictures and we ended up, splitting it, taking whichever we want.

So that means, I get to keep one picture.

Personally, I wouldn't understand why would anyone want a polaroid picture in this day and age when you have camera phones. I mean, it's so easy with a camera phone and you can upload it real quick on the internet. Plus, you can share with your friends so in the end, everyone gets a copy. And you don't have to pay for film.

But now that I have a copy, I stare at it every once in a while.

When we were taking the pictures, the polaroid camera had a really bright flash that blinded everyone.
But this bright flash created a really nice effect to the pictures. It was really nostalgic looking and very vintage like.

The pictures had this faded colour thing going on so it looks like it's really nice.



And to be honest, I really like this effect.

Not only that, polaroid camera's print the picture instantly and it is a real copy. So you have one real picture in your hands, immediately. It feels like magic in a way. hehehe.

Anyhow, I have a weakness for vintage stuff or things that look like they are full of memories.

So I am wondering if I should get a polaroid camera and begin taking polaroid pictures.

But the only thing stopping me is the cost of the camera and the cost of the film.

Yea, as awesome as polaroids are, it has its' downfall which is the fact that you have to pay for film. sighs.

But at least, it's old school. hehehehehe.

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…
