Graduate.


I got leaked exam results.
For me, when I get my results, I consider that the point of where I graduate.
Why?

Because when the exams end, it's still uncertain. You can still fail things and end up still in university because you need to retake the papers.

But when the results is out, it's certain. You know what grade you make. You know for certain, you don't have to go back there or if you have to go back there.

The results for my exams were...interesting. They were both to my expectations and out of my expectations.

My aim was first class, of course. And in the end, I only got second upper. 

Well, I am not too disappointed. 
Why?
In the end, it's not the grades that mattered.

It was what I learned. It was what has happened in this three years.

University has been magnificently wonderful to me.
I have learnt.
Grown.
Laughed. 
Cried.
Fought.

My university has taught me that I can think. That I am one of the best. We all are.
So chins up.
Smiles on.

We did it.
We survived. 
No, better than that. We thrived.

At the end of the day, some of us may not have gotten the results we wanted.
But boy, did we have fun?
But boy, did we learn?
But boy, did we do our best?
And it was yes to all of the above.

I feel like I have become a much better person. A more polished diamond. 

But of course, this is not the end of our journey. We have much more to travel. Alot more to learn.

But this s our life.
The world is our stage.
And may we play it to the best of our abilities.

Here's to us.
Here's to our life.
Here's to all our dreams and hopes.

Here's to everything.
To more.
To the future.
To the past.
To the present.

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…
