Selamat Hari Merdeka

Your Facebook newsfeed was probably flooded with tonnes of news and posts that are in yellow in the last 3 days whether or not you were supportive of the Bersih 4 rally.

When Bersih 3 was held three years ago, I was sitting at home keeping up with news and updates from the media and friends who were there. This time around, I was there for myself with a couple of friends. Of course, we've all heard about the horror stories about teargas and water cannons, and just days before Bersih 4 was going to happen the police mentioned something about 'taser guns'. I believe many of us managed our expectations and prepared for the worst - educating ourselves with information such as what to do when there's teargas and perhaps even to the point of memorising phone numbers in case we got arrested.

Food: Aether Cafe, TTDI

A few weeks ago, instead of working from the office, my team decided to work from a cafe instead. And the place chosen was Aether Cafe at TTDI.
