Well, the new year is here.

And honestly, I am glad. I been feeling rather prepared lately for the new year to come. So now that it's here, I feel happy and relieved. It's like a new chapter of a book. A fresh start.

Anyway, every new year, I make new year resolutions. It's my thing. But unlike most people, I actually try to work at it.

Honestly, new year resolutions to me isn't a bad thing. It's like planning for your year and how you want it turn out. Sometimes, it doesn't turn out exactly as you planned but at least you had a plan.

Sometimes, my new year resolutions are of previous years because I haven't achieved them. There's nothing wrong with being unable to achieve your old new year resolutions as long as you tried your best. The thing about life is, it's not a straight road. 

Let's say, your new year resolution is to exercise. So you start exercise. Then, somewhere along the line, you got lazy and stopped. But that doesn't mean, you consider yourself a failure and get rid of that new year resolution. 

If anything, you start over. You try to start exercising again. There will be days where you feel lazy but don't give up. Keep working at it. Keep trying.

And new year resolutions can be changed along the way or you can add new resolutions when you come up with one.

So yea. I just don't like it when people say that new year resolutions is stupid because it doesn't work. 
Because it does work. 
The question is, do you want it to work?

Anyway, I feel like posting up my new year resolutions this year. 

  • Let go of all of my fears and doubts.
  • Be more aware of my emotions and thoughts.
  • Stop allowing other people's opinions (real or imagined) to affect me.
  • To continue growing and learning.
  • To be more confident.
  • To be happy and at peace. (or to be zen)
  • To be fabulous like Thranduil.By fabulous, it means, I want to have beautiful hair like Thranduil and also to behave as fabulous as Thranduil, the elf king.
  • I want to enjoy the journey of my life and to live my life to the fullest.

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…
