On Reading Like a Kid

My first self-identified hobby since I was conscious is reading. Naturally I didn't really like it in the beginning, but what I realized is that I wasn't striving to reap the benefits of reading, or get its end results. I simply made a habit out of it, and non-deliberately I lost myself in the very... Continue Reading →

My High School Life in CHS

I often wonder, if I travel back in time to revisit my high school self, what would I have told myself?   This day a 'throwback' heavy one. I had been rediscovering my old blogs (mostly in Chinese, on pixnet.net), digging up my old pictures, and unnaturally took a trip back to my high school.... Continue Reading →

My General Religious Orientation

In my view, religiosity and spirituality serves a purpose to unite all the knowledge in the world, an easy heuristic to attribute all known things and unknown things to a single conceptual entity in order to help us face the uncertainty of the world. In short, the ones I use for my religious/spiritual worldview are:... Continue Reading →

Born in 1995 February and have been living in the quiet part of the busy township that is Petaling Jaya. I... Continue Reading →

So where do I come from?  I am starting on My Life Through a Kaleidoscope, writings that are more retrospective and self-centered. But I haven't got any idea about how I want to do this, so I will just start with a more directionless form of writing first, then narrow down later. Let's see. I... Continue Reading →

Good Luck with ‘Finding Yourself’

Acknowledgements: This piece of writing was inspired by Scibabe's article which I linked below. Bear in mind that I harbor no ill will towards self-help writers and life coaches, but the notion of 'finding one's self' or awakening it as if it's a compulsory temporary process bothers me. The bottom line is that the self-actualization we are... Continue Reading →

The First Steps into Psychology

Throughout the past seven or so months, I have done quite a bit of writing on psychology for the level Zero series in Project PsychSeeing. But they are actually meant to help individuals decide whether committing themselves to psychology is the choice they want, along with my personal philosophical ramblings that simply do not belong...
