Taking a Break

Kacang Puteh Man at Catay

Just as how carefree the kacang puteh man sold me snacks at the Catay previously, makes me wonder that sometimes, the best things in life are the simple little things- Simple little things which we often go unnoticed in our endless wants.

And it’s not just the snack mind you, it’s like a catalyst to a familiar realisation of thoughts- sometimes you just have to appreciate the simple things of life, given the mist of all the hustle sand bustles in this highly materialistic world, particularly here. It pays to reflect on your actions and recuperate what you’ve done for the year. After all, the year end is drawing near.

If you’ve been following my blog, this year was a plenty for me and I think it’s the most I’ve done and accomplished so far in a long time. However, this year end period is particularly a crucial one, a life changing one together with lots of university admission work determining what I will doing for the next 4 years or so. That includes whether will I be able to do my Masters and secure a place in good universities abroad.

I will be taking in very much fewer freelance jobs this year end, furthermore given the fact that I will be abroad at most of the time it will be rather difficult to do freelancing either. Maybe it’s time to take a break and relax, or maybe take up Yoga, well despite, that is being banned across the causeway as well.


  1. totally agree with you there ….. life would be happier if one can learn to be contented with the simple things and to remember to count your blessings.

    So how did your Cambridge interview turn out …. any good news to share?

    • hey Julee, yup! be contented with what you have.

      The Cambridge interview was great, it was rather strangely enjoyable. The interviewer asked me quite alot of very general questions, like explaining how this works and how that functions, etc. Thats on top of maths questions as well, quite interesting itself, one of the most broad and longest interviews I’ve ever done before as well (about 30-40mins).
