Temptations


One of my biggest temptations is definitely Apple products in terms of materials. Things that I really really want to buy.

I have always love Apple for their simple yet beautiful design for both hardware and software. 

Hence it has always been hard for me to resist them.

With the recent release of the Apple Iphone and Apple Watch Series 2, I admit that my brain has been thinking about them alot recently.

I been talking about Apple to many people, both offline and online. 

Anyhow, Apple products aren't cheap and cost a fair bit. 

As usual, I am swayed to get apple products.

I am very tempted. It's taking alot of me to just tell myself to not buy. 

But of course, I'm not too scared for myself.
I have been tempted before.
I have been in this position before. 

I been tempted this badly before.
Back then, it was worse because I knew I couldn't afford those and yet I wanted so badly.

But now, I am able to afford them but question is, do I blow such a big hole in my pocket because I still not at the point of life yet where I can afford many many riches.

I know some people think I'm crazy for loving Apple so much. Well, this is art to me. And I'm willing to pay for it. 

To be honest, I am not sure if I should get the new Iphone or the Apple Watch Series 2.

When it comes to a smart watch, I just want something I can exercise with, you know.
Something that tracks my exercise.
Something with heart rate monitor.
Something that does a good job at it.

So I'm not sure if I should get an Apple Watch or just get a wearable such as a fitbit, you know.


As for Iphone, my current is phone is fine. But a nice new iphone wouldn't hurt either. Haha. yea. Oh well.

These are my temptations and they are strong.

I wonder how I will handle them. Hahaha.

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…
