Naruto Manga

Naruto manga just ended. After 15 years of running and it's only appropriate to give it some respect.

I am one of the newer fans so I didn't read it for 15 years. I have only been reading this for 5 years but still, I must admit that it has been one hell of a ride.

I am not going to lie and say Naruto is my childhood because it really isn't. 
Even though it has been popular for a long time and it's the childhood thing to many people my age, I never really got into Naruto until really late.

I never really got into Naruto because I assumed that it was this typical boring shonen thing where people fight and power up endlessly without any real plot.

But one day, I watched an abridged series of Naruto and it was hilarious.
Even though I haven't watch the original series, I really love the abridged. 
Every single time I was sad or stressed, I would rewatch the abridged series again and again. 
By now, I have probably watched that abridged series at least 20 times.

But I thought to myself that I should try out the original series. So one day, it was on TV and I watched it. 

I was so surprised to find myself really enjoying. Of course, at that time, I thought the abridged was funnier. It is only natural that the abridged was funnier, it is a parody after all.

As time passes on, I began to like the series more and more. 
My assumptions of Naruto were so wrong.
Yes, they fought a lot and talked a lot.
But it has plot and characters.
It has philosophies. 
And I really love that.

It's really difficult to get me to read the manga.
But slowly, eventually, after years of watching the anime, I started reading the manga.

And honestly, I don't regret it.
Because Naruto is one series where I must say the manga is much better than the anime.

Naruto truly is a good series.
But like all good things, it must come to an end.

So here's a toast to Naruto.
Thank you for everything.

PS, I don't know why some people seem so upset with the ending because I am completely alright with it. If anything, I enjoy it.

PSS, so proud of Naruto for being hokage. I love that he seemed so much more mature.

PSSS, Did you freaking see Sasuke? He grew up to be such a hot dude. I mean, yes, he was good looking from the beginning and in 699, he looked so much like Itachi but in 700, he was just hot.

PSSSS, Gaara, your old hairstyle called back and said that you should ditch the new one because it really sucks.

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…
