It's that time of the year again.


December.

Yup. It's that time for that time of the year again. 
Time for what?
Time to reflect on all that has happened in this year.

To be honest, this has been one of the best years in my life.

So many of dreams came true one by one in this year alone.

  • Travelling overseas
  • Owning an Iphone
  • Getting together with someone
  • Getting over a long time self esteem issue


Those just a few of the good things that happened this year.

Truly, I have never been so happy. 
Happy because my life is slowly turning out to be what I want it to be.
Happy because I can finally look at my life and go, this is my life and this is exactly how I like it.

For the longest time, I always had expectations of how my life would turn out.
And I was always so scared that I would screw up my own life.
It is only recently that I let go all of that fear. 
And now slowly, my life is just falling into place, one by one.

I guess getting rid of expectations is the first step. To accept your life. To wake up and say, I'm grateful for everything. To have a zest for life. 

And of course, my life is changing. It's constantly changing. 

I just hope that things can only keep getting better from here on. 
I do know it's not possible to only keep getting good things. But that's not what I mean.

What I mean is, even despite of all the bad stuff, I hope I'm still living the life that I'm proud and happy of. 
I want to be able to live the life of my dreams.

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…

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…
