Next Generation Internet

I’m always here one day and never to be seen until many moons later. And so, it’s been another half a year! I feel like I update here on a half-year basis to be honest. Like I would just suddenly get bursts of motivation to write about something. Recently, I've been reading more long-form blogs and exploring the smaller web. With what Google has been doing to Youtube, the amount of monetization in Reddit and Meta doing what they've always been doing, I found myself bored with what the big web has to offer.

Chocolate overnight oats and some other things

Overnight oats with natural peanut butter drizzle and sugarfree chocolate nuts

Let’s start with the recipe and then get to the life story hehe.

Ingredients:

  1. Dutched cocoa power – 2 tbsp
  2. Rolled oats – 1/2 cup
  3. Erythritol (or sugar/honey/sweetener of choice) – 2 tsp
  4. Kinako, sesame and almond powder (optional) – 2 tbsp
  5. Water/milk (or milk alternatives) – see in recipe!
  6. Toppings of your choice (fruits, peanut butter, nuts, greek yoghurt etc.)

Okay, an update

So the last post was super short since I wrote it at midnight, but finally have a slither of time to do a more detailed update…

I think two blog-posts ago, I talked about doing exchange in Japan. Well, I’ve been here for a little over three months now! I’m way out in the more countryside area of Japan though. (Legit can see rice paddies on the way to the grocers).

I like that though. I like that it’s more quiet and peaceful, and slower pace. I like that I don’t have to worry about living expenses since cost of living is a lot lower than big cities like Tokyo (and definitely a lot cheaper than back home in Sydney)…

I like living by myself and having the freedom to cook the foods I want to eat. And also the freedom to decorate my own place and enjoy it for myself. :)

Front Matter

Hey guys,

Quick update today since I got carried away by this website again (it always happen out of nowhere I swear!), but it’s already 1:22am where I am! (Ohno… and I’ve got work tomorrow morning)

I’m trying out something new (again)

This something new is Front Matter – a CMS extension for VS Code that lets me write my markdown for my blogposts using WYSIWYG (What You See is What You Get).

INFP

Just worked today, nothing much else!

The Myers-briggs personality test (and many other like it) isn’t based on any real scientific research, but something about personality tests really intrigue me.

Maybe it’s the idea that we can truly understand people and all the complexities and differences that make these tests so compelling. It’s plain satisfying to feel that everyone’s differences has an underlying reason…

But no!! People are more than just 4 letters. It’s a bit of fun, but I think most people’s personalities are fluid and change depending on the environment they’re in and the people they’re with.
