Checking in

I’m so sorry! I’ve been away from this blog for quite some time. A couple of (maybe just two) things have happened since then. I’ve finally graduated, after seven grueling years, I now have a medical degree! …just kidding… I have now graduated with honours, earning myself a Bachelors in Economics. I can now do…

And done!

Phew, what a hectic couple of months it has been. This is obviously an excuse for lack of updates to this blog, but I’ll ask you to forgive me anyway. For a good six moons, I have slogged through piles of texts, formulas and diagrams (as much as I could anyway), and, I even went…

The last mile

Back in 2012, I began pursuing a degree in economics. Seven years later, I’m finally in my final semester. A lot of things have happened in between. I’ve had to put studying off every now and then because of work, or personal commitments. Long story short is that after I came back from Australia with…

And…we’re off!

2018 ended without a bang…both literally and figuratively. The year ended off with everyone in the falling asleep well before the hands of the clock struck midnight; before a line in the sands of time was drawn, signifying the start of something new. It was probably a neat allegory of how we (or maybe just…

Whoa nelly!

The last one and a half month or so has been pretty challenging. It’s like a mad dash to the finish line with a mile to go, your joints failing you and only fumes to power you to the end. To say that I have been handling it well would be an understatement. The year…

Playing tourist

Over the weekend we decided to head back to Ipoh. It wasn’t for any particular occasion, except for the fact that the wife is coming to the end of her maternity leave and is heading back to work. I think it’s hitting everyone quite hard, especially child number one. For the past three months, she’s…

The school canteen

I’m still here at bub’s primary school orientation. The mum’s in the hall and I’m just strolling aimlessly around the school. I could just stand outside bub’s classroom, but that seems to distract her. So I thought it’s best I stay away, just so that she doesn’t have the crutch of looking around for me…

Where did the time go?

So today is bub’s orientation at her school. I’m sitting here thinking to myself, “where did all that time go?” It seems to me that it was only yesterday that she was a wee little toddler. Sputtering out half words, making cheeky faces. Now she’s going to be on her own at school, making new…

Friday night lights

I gotta be honest, I literally had to drag myself to come out tonight. But at the end of the day, I’m glad I did. I enjoy basketball, I really do. It’s just that some most times I’m a lazy prick. I read somewhere that team sports helps a lot with building confidence and social…

There is no point to this

The first sentence is always the hardest to write down. I read somewhere that the first sentence will define the story. The truth is, I don’t know what this story will be about. I just figured that I needed to vent somewhere, and hey, since this blog has been gathering dust, I’ll just do it…
