Both deals with scarce resources to drive at achieving goals.
The list is just selected few of the universities in the region, namely Singapore and Malaysia. The reason is because I wanted to enroll in a post-grad course and I wanted to compare the ranking plus education cost before making a decision. Note that Nanyang Technological University (NTU) Singapore is above the list.

Today is 17th day. It was not easy the first week. It was slightly better the second week. Now comes the third week.
That is a 23-more-days challenge to go. Things that helped is jogging. 3 km every two days for 20 min.
It is my way to say “love/miss you”.
Probably I don’t express myself well in this aspect, I would either kiss (my children) or gently tap (with two fingers, e.g. index and middle; for friends) on the forehead.
Today, I missed many good people. Sobs. Wish them all the best.
Of all the billions of people, we managed to share our lives together. A friend said, it is “fate”.
This is translated to as, “wisdom is akin to paddy plant, the more the substance the humbler (“bent posture”) you are”.
That is a Malay proverb that I hold on to daily.
During excursion, with heavy baggage and slow walkers, how to make sure no one is left behind?
- First, delegate the task of handling heavy cargo to abled members.
- Then, allow the slowmo walkers to take the lead instead.
- If the slowmo is unfamiliar with the direction, then assign someone who knows the way to be in charge (navigating and taking care of slowmo).
- When any members are lost, make use of phone to call them. Hence, make sure each members are given phone.
- If all is unavailed, meet at starting point.
As the title explained.
This blog is about how I overcame obstacles to break away from these negative feelings….
