Of: Suicide Note

Reading Time: 15 minutes Bell Zeller, a fantastic programmer, committed suicide early last month. Being someone who does not have friends committing suicide (as if I want them to), it is kind of detached for me to feel sad. Not until you read a suicide note written with much intensity. It was succinct, even when the note is 4000 words long. It conveyed his entire 27 years of sadness. So great that it leaves me with a heavy heart. In the words of Joel…

A blast from the past: Class 4/2

Reading Time: 1 minute I was viewing the photos in MHSS Facebook Group when this photo popped out. It was from the time when I was in my final year in MHSS. This was my entire class, sans Adnan, who was the photographer, and Yue Wei, who simply was not around. I could not remember when we took this, but it was a pleasant surprise to see this again. When I saw each face, 3-4 years younger us, I saw poignant stories, some serious,…
