Addicted.



My phone had problems the other day. The battery expanded and it needed to be changed.

Most of my phone problems were caused by the fact that the battery expanded. Another problem is the power button. I have already fixed the battery but the I plan to fix the power button later.

With my phone gone for repair, I realized only how I addicted I am to my phone and social media.

I was really agitated that I didn't have my phone. 
But I got even more mad when I realized that I was addicted.

I shouldn't be surprised though.

Back when I was in high school, I was addicted to the internet (maybe I still am)

I still remember that I needed to get atleast four hours of internet a day. If I didn't get internet for one day, I remembered how it felt so bad for me. I would be walking up and down, thinking of the internet and how I needed it.

Over the years, I have managed to control my internet intake so it's okay now.

But I realized now that I was really addicted to my phone and I didn't like that.

The phone is a useful tool which is good.

But to stare at it every hour, as if something would happen. As if my life would change. It's silly.
It's just a phone.
It's a tool.
And I need to reset the way I think about my phone.

I need to remind myself that it's a tool.
That it will help make my life more convenient.

But I should be present all the time. Be in the moment.
And I should not use my phone as a crutch the moment I feel bored. 
I need to be okay to be by myself and my thoughts.

So yea.

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…

An open letter to the scared and confused dreamers.

This is a letter for myself. But this is also a letter for those who find themselves in the same place as I am.

I'm going to admit that life is different from what I initially thought when I was younger.

When I was younger, I assumed that by now, I would have reached or be somewhat close to the life of my dreams.

But now that I reach this point, I realised that I was wrong. I did not take into account that tertiary education took years. Personally, I don't regret my tertiary education because I did enjoy it. Yes, it was insane and difficult but it was fun and I met amazing people there.

It's been a year since my graduation and I find myself being frustrated. I felt disappointed in myself because no, I don't have my own apartment and no, I'm not rocking that cool ass job that I always  dreamed of. But no, I don't hate my job either. In that sense, I'm fortunate I suppose. But I feel that it may not be the kind of thing that I want to do.

However, for me, to get t…

Alter ego, SUIT UP!!

Man, it feels odd to have people believe in you at the very moment you do not trust yourself. It feels odd to hear people's praises of you when you're feeling incapable. So I guess, it's time for one of my many alter ego to suit up if I wanna win that debate competition!!

Like any other person, I have many alter ego's...and I'm gonna list most of them today.


Ms Drama Queen
Likes :Attention and spotlight. She's a diva.
Dislikes :People stealing her spotlight or not getting her spotlight.
She is : A real drama queen. She whines & complains alot though. She thinks that the world revolves around her.
Can't handle :Ms Productive


Ms Arrogant
Likes : Winning, winning and winning.
Dislikes : Losing and losers.
She is : A real mean arrogant person. She really doesn't care about the other people. She thinks she is the best. Mostly, she thinks that her opponents aren't even her equal unless they have proven otherwise. Even then, she still thinks she is better than …
