Languages


I am in a little dilemma that I probably need to sort out soon because the deadline is coming soon.

Anyhow, my classmates are thinking of learning Spanish. 

Personally, I do think it's a good idea. After all, I have always wanted to learn as much European language as I possibly can (that's a personal goal of mine)

But at the same time, thinking about learning Spanish got me thinking about French.

I studied French before and personally, I do love it. 
But I have left it alone for years and thus, it has deteriorated quite badly.
Therefore, a thought entered my mind. Instead of learning a new language, wouldn't it be better if I mastered a language that I learnt before?
That way, I can truly say I speak French because I will be able to speak it fluently.

Thus, I am torn between the two. 

If I learn Spanish, I get to be with my classmates and it will be relatively easy since it's the beginner course. I won't have to sacrifice so much time and effort.

If I continue French, I get to pick up where I left off and master what I didn't master. But it will be hard because I am at the intermediate point where there is quite a few grammar rules and all that sort of stuff.

Or better still, don't study French or Spanish. Just go focus on my degree studies since it will be tough.

SIGHS.

I really don't know.
But I left a poll down here so that you can let help me decide.

What language should I learn?
Spanish
French
Focus on your degree

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…
