Writing.



It's July. 
And that means, it's camp nanowrimo time.

What is camp nanowrimo?
It is just a time where you spend one month where you write 50000 words.
It's a month where you create a novel and finish it.
A novelling month.

It's the same as nanowrimo.
Only difference is that, it is July which is in summer.
So that is why they call it camp nanowrimo, like it's a summer camp~!

Anyhow, thank you to those who voted and helped me decide which story I should write for this camp nanowrimo.



Xerxes won. 
So I will be writing about him.

Anyhow, I love writing.
Writing feels like meditating to me.
It gives me a peace of mind.

When I write, be it a diary or a story,
I feel like my mind calms down alot.
I feel like everything suddenly becomes silent and clear.

And then, suddenly makes sense.

I just started writing on Xerxes story and even though it has been hard starting because I really don't know how to start.
It's been good.
I can feel the story churning and I am actually having fun despite the slow wordcount. 

Writing is good for me and I like it.

But what amazes the most when I write sometimes is,
when you let the story take over and just let it flow.
The story takes you to amazing places.
You write things that you never thought was possible.

Like recently,
I just wrote a lullaby for little Xerxes.
And wow, I never knew I had that in me.
So yea.

Cheers to writing.
And may this be a good writing month~!

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…
