Oh my love


I know. 
I been blogging way too much about my relationship lately.
And I'm sorry.
But I can't quite help it.

We just reached our second anniversary. 
Yes, we been together for two years.
It sounds like a long time, doesn't it?

When I think about my relationship, all I can say is that we are interesting and slightly different.
Because no, we aren't the cute adorable, can't get keep our hands off each other couple. 

We are more of the best friend and partner in crime sort of relationship. 

And I think it's crazy how he's such a great guy.
Not that he doesn't have flaws. He totally does.

It's crazy how he was committed from day 1.
And when I asked why. 
He said that I felt serious and real.
And I never quite understood it.

But it's because of his deep commitment from day 1 that has allowed me to fall so deep without much fear.

I have to say that he taught to me to love.
He showed me what a real relationship was like.

This relationship hasn't been easy for me in the beginning because I was so afraid. 
I would admit that I didn't want to fall too deeply because I didn't want to get hurt.
Most of all, I was worried if he was worth it. 
I would admit that I was rather materialistic and shallow.
I did consider leaving when things got hard. 

I expected things to always be beautiful and rosy.
But that's not real.
Love doesn't work that way.

But I always knew that if I left him, he was the kind of man who I could never get together with ever again if I regretted it. 
That was just something I felt and I was right. He is that kind of man.

But I stayed.
I stayed because he was the most understanding and kind person I have ever met. 
But I also stayed because he was ticking things off lists that I never even knew I had.
He was showing me things I want in a partner that I never knew I wanted until I saw it in him.

Most of all, I know that if I ever need him, he will always be here for me.

Funnily enough, love is never about the grand gestures.
For me, love is always in the little moments.

It's in the bad puns he always tells.
It's in the little rants when he watches a bad movie. 
It's in the times when he would help me do something just because I was too lazy.

And I'm absolutely lucky to have him.

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…
