Family?

Just a warning.
These are my thoughts and my opinions. And being an Asian that grew up in a collective society, this may be an opinion or thought that many may not like or it may be something you agree with. And oh yeah, this is gonna be a long post.

Recently, some "family" issues has been happening and I just reminded how different my values are with my own parents. I felt that I just have to talk about it here. My mother might probably be mad that I'm talking about this here because she would feel that there is no need to air the dirty laundry.

But me, on the other hand, I just feel that this is the truth and there is no harm in saying it.

Personally, if you ask me if I'm a family oriented person, my answer would be no. I'm an individualist. Coming from an Asian family that grew up in a collective society, this is a shocking answer. And honestly, I don't find the need to apologize for it nor do I care if someone thinks it is wrong.

Recently, my paternal aunt and…

Let's talk about Apple

Apple.
It's definitely one of my favourite companies.
I love Apple so much. I'm literally a walking advertisement for Apple sometimes.
And I don't mind.

As usual, I waited for the Apple Keynote with much anticipation and I watched it, eagerly. 

The only thing that really caught my eye was the Apple Watch Series 3 Cellular version.
That's the Apple Watch I been waiting for. 
I assumed that it wouldn't arrive until 2 years from now.
But I'm glad that it's here.
If I can afford it, I'll definitely buy it.

Now, let's talk about the thing that everyone is talking about.
The Iphone X.

To be honest, when I watched the keynote, it didn't blow my mind away.

In fact, I ended up questioning myself. 
How good a screen do we really need?
How awesome a camera do we really need?

And because of that, I found the Iphone X relatively unspectacular in that sense.

However, I must admit that I like the move towards the removal of the home button.
It makes the user interface much more…

Cosplay Ball

I'm really looking forward to going to a cosplay ball this weekend.

Why?

I always wanted to attend prom both in high school and in university.
However, in high school, I went to an all girls school. 
They didn't have a prom night.
But they had a gala night.

I didn't attend though because I thought the prices were insane and it was insane. So I didn't go.

I was also invited to a prom in a place that I used to volunteer and I didn't go because I was shy.
And it is a decision that I regretted. 
But I was young and insecure. I let many things get in my way. 

Then, university came.
University had proms too. And they were cool proms too.
But sadly, none of my friends went.
And for me, if my friends didn't go, then, there is no fun at all. 
I wanted to go to something where my friends and I could have fun.
So I didn't go.
But I didn't really regret this decision. 

I heard of this Cosplay Ball last year and I knew I wanted in.
In a way, it's everything I wanted.

As a person w…

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…
