Do You Remember Me?

I went back home to visit my family when on one of the evenings I went to the nearest cafe and on the way home I met this childhood friend of mine. Our house is actually just 5 houses apart. We went to the same primary school and we were good friends until we completed…

How Hard Is It For You To Understand?

Been working as an academic is great. I am able to meet a lot of new people, have more opportunities to explore and to learn about human behavior and also to keep up with the current trend. However, sometimes I still don’t get what’s on their head. How people actually function. Do they use their…

A Man Of His Word

Nope, I’m not talking about the book series by Dave Duncan – I haven’t read the books myself. This is something that I really find it interesting and the value that I hold since I was young. My grandpa was a strict man. I lived together with him since I was born until I moved…

Summer Days And What To Do With Them

Originally posted on XP NUGGETS:
This’ll be a pretty straightforward one, so sit back, relax, and (hopefully) enjoy! Over here in the Pacific Northwest, the days have been getting significantly longer and people have been complaining less and less about the all-too-familiar Washington rain. I can’t complain one bit. The state’s beautiful with terrible weather,…

Observation vs Reality

As a person, I am someone who prefers to observe the situation first before making any move. Ever since I was a kid, before I decided to be friends with anyone, I will keep an eye on that particular human being and see what sparks my interest. If after going through all my judgment, he/she…

Walk With Your Mind, Run With Your Heart – Benjamin Kheng

Just a couple of days ago before I went to bed I came across this video. I rarely watch TED Talks in the past few months and to me to really understand the content I gotta spend some time to really listen and must have the willingness to understand. I can understand jokes or memes…

Closing One Chapter

Usually, around this time of the year, I am very busy with a lot of things going on in my life. It’s starting since 2015 when I first joined the┬áchoir in my church, and ever since then, I started to sing regularly every Sunday. Those people in the choir have become my friends, my family,…

Standing Still

Most of the time you will be exposed to different kind of things and people with a great variation of personalities. These people have their own thoughts and you cannot always guess and understand what they are thinking. As we move on to a different stage of our lives, we will meet more people and…

Why you never ask?

A friend of mine visited me and we catch up till super late. It started with her asking me why I did not ask for her help when I needed her? Since I was young, my parents told me to not bother other people and try to not give burden to others and I gotta…

That’s How You Treat People?

I have been working in the customer service field for approximately a year now. I did different kinds of stuff and have encountered a different kind of customers as well. Back in my home country in Asia, the customer service role is not a prestigious role in which those are working for the position are…

You MUST!

You did not misread the title. Well, not everyone should really say that you MUST do something specific, especially if you’re not willing to do so. Yes for some occasions and some cases – for example when you are sick – then you have to follow the rules. Originally rules were created to put everything…

Music Is The Key

Recently I watched La La Land and it took my heart away with their music, romance, and comedy scenes in the film. It’s been quite a while since the last time I watched a musical movie in a┬átheatre. To me La La Land brought a fresh concept, not many people love Jazz music yet the…
