An Advice

I know I'm still very young and I don't have much wisdom yet.
But I guess I'm in the mood for sharing whatever little wisdom I have.

So here goes.
And please do forgive me if I sound preachy.
You have a right to not listen and to complete disagree. This is all just my humble opinions.

Coming from an Asian home, tertiary education is very important. Our parents just wants us to go to University and get a degree.
Nothing wrong with that.

But I just want to say, do not do it just because you want to get a degree so that you can get a job.
Take that mindset, throw it in the dustbins.

Do not get a degree for the sake of a job.

Get a degree because you want an education.
So go learn what you want to learn. What you are passionate about.
Even if everyone around tells you it's crap or that it won't make money.

I really am a big believer of go do whatever you love. Because I believe in your personal happiness comes first.

But of course, if you value other things, then don't listen to me. Don't listen to what I value in. Because I value doing what you love. 

I didn't get a degree for a job. And I'm glad I didn't. Because when I look for a job, I realised employers didn't really care what your degree was or where it came from. It didn't matter to them. And to them, everyone has a degree so you're no different. A degree isn't something that's gonna make you hire them.

If anything, a degree is just a minimal requirement that allows you to apply for that job. So yea. 

So that's why I say, don't go that route. 

Go study what you love.
Go get an education,.
Go get your mind widened and your eyes open.

See the world in brand new eyes.

And that's what an education should do.

I always believe education should be liberating.

It should liberate both your mind and your soul. 

But then again, this is just my point of view. 
So take it with a pinch of salt.

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 …
