I live life enjoying as much as possible by enjoying the outdoors, savouring dinner with the family, having fun with friends, or seeing my little sister smile.
I understand the value of a penny and that hard work pays off. I am very ambitious and driven and have set goals for myself to achieve. I can be very serious but yet I have a fun personality to have a good time. I feel that life is a huge journey and the key to a successful life is to live in the moment and not dwell on the past!
i am an optimist.
I'm a hopeless romantic and a dreamer. I love to just go outside and contemplate life while I feel the breeze in my hair and the sun kiss my cheeks!
I hope to travel the world one day because there is so much beauty to see in the world.
i get bored easily(something i'm not proud of).
I am a huge roller coaster and adrenalin junkie and I just love life!
i'm a great public speaker.
i'm a person who tries to be the best i can be. :D
i am also a feminist.
a HUGE fan of oprah winfrey.
lastly, i'm going to be a history maker.
I really love dogs. they're cute. Everytime I see a dog, I go awwwww. Someday, someday I'll get a dog. I'll probably get one from the dog shelter. Give a dog a life. :)
I'm part Brahmin. My grandmother is a full Brahmin. Yes, those people you learn about in History. YEAP. I'm suppose to be this holy, vegetarian person. If you're a Brahmin then you're in the MOST ELITE class. Everybody respects you. BIG WOOSH.
I LOVE POTATOES. mashed potatoes, fried potatoes, boiled potatoes, baked potatoes, grilled potatoes. I can live on potatoes.
The only animals I eat are chicken and fish. Not a lot of chicken. I probably eat chicken like once in two to three weeks? YES. no pork, mutton, prawns, crabs, or whatever other animals you people eat. I just can't bring myself to eat other animals.
My fondest memories would be getting my results for PMR and SPM(straight As) and sleepovers with my bestie. Also, another VERY fond memory would be the 6/09/2006 the day Priety was born. It was also the last day of UPSR. :)
The best thing I've ever eaten was palak paneer from Chakra. I'm a sucker for north Indian food. They also had butter chicken, which I can't seem to find on the menu anymore.
In 10 years time I'll be 28. I want to see myself settled down in a big city living the city life with lots of friends around. I want a condominium lot. I'll probably have a roomie. And hopefully I'll get that dog I've always wanted. I see myself as a successful, inspiring, positive person in a huge city. And if I have my own TV show that would be a bonus. :D Also, by this age I hope to be done with travelling around the world.
In 20 years time I'll be 38. I see myself travelling to Africa and adopting a child from Africa. Then I'm going to adopt a child from Nepal. Then we'll settle down in USA and live a happy life together. :) When my adopted children are all grown up, I'll have a foster care system where I adopt 15-16 years old kids, because nobody wants a teenage kid to adopt. hopefully I can enlighten their lives with my shine.
My biggest fear is of the dark. Until now I still sleep with the light on. I have my own room, yes. When I sleep alone, I need the light on.
I HATE HAUNTED STORIES, HORROR MOVIES or whatever that has to do with the unknown. THEY FREAK ME OUT AND I CAN'T SLEEP.
If I had superpowers, I'd want the mastery of time and healing powers so I can heal all those with cancer.
As soon as a baby girl is born, she's given her father's surname. If I ever have children(which I don't intend to have because I do not want any), I would give it MY SURNAME. YEAH. I carried it for 9 freaking months. Went through lots of shit. But at the end of the day I'm not given any credit? He is not the head of the family, we BOTH ARE. Tell me, what did he do, stand around and give the woman some support as she goes through all that pain. I don't know how painful it is, but I do know that if it is worse than menstruation cramps, then you had BETTER give your woman some credit and name the baby with her surname. Not to mention the post-pregnancy effects. gain of weight, depression, lack of confidence, it takes the fun out of baby making and the continuation of life. So give the woman some respect and give the baby her surname. Who made you boss? Who gave you the right to give the baby your surname? YOUR EGO DID I SUPPOSE. Ladies, if he doesn't help around or isn't involved in raising your child, tell him! Don't sit there and suffer in silence! Ask and you WILL receive, YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO. After all that trouble, you deserve a break! You deserve to feel pampered and not pressured.
When I was a little kid about the age of 4 or 5, I took my shirt off and walked around the house like my dad did. My mom didn't exactly scold me, but she told me it wasn't right. I never knew why then, and I still don't know why I couldn't do it. So you see, I've been a feminist since I was a little girl.
Think about it, women all over the world are consider second to men. politics, men rule. Banking, men rule. Religion, men rule(I refuse to belive that God is unjust and one-sided).
All my life I've done things to prove to myself that I'm as good as any man is and better. The other day, I assembled a machine all by myself as I saw the awe in my (traditional) grandmother's eyes. My dad even called me the man of the house.
I HATE THAT PHRASE "MAN OF THE HOUSE". It potrays a man being strong and a leader. I know, I know, studies have shown that men are stronger physically but guess what, women are stronger mentally. I'd rather have my definition of strong be "stronger mentally" and so guess what? I'm the WOMAN OF THE HOUSE.
Why would you call something where the gender is unknown a "he". Why do you call God "he"? When the gender is unknown call it an "it"! Now of course you can't call God "it" so why can't you call God "she". "I love God. She showers me with blessings everyday" Sounds wrong? So why does "I love God. He showers me with blessings everyday" sound so right? God is fair. I know She is(do you have a problem with that? don't tell me because I don't care).
AND WHAT IS THIS VICTIM BLAMING CRAP WHEN A WOMAN IS RAPED?? She did not ask for it, YOU FORCED YOURSELF ON HER. Don't tell me how to dress, don't tell me not to go out at night because it is dangerous out there for a woman, don't tell me I have no control over my body. and most importantly DO NOT IMPOSE LAWS TELLING ME I CAN'T CHOOSE TO HAVE A CHILD IF I DON'T WANT TO. It is MY BODY, not the government's body, not my family's body, not my partner's body. Now I do not support abortion, but I believe that a woman has control over her body. It should be purely her choice.
a woman's life is sweet, it is beautiful. It shouldn't be lived in fear or of any lesser of a man's. A woman's life is hers. She controls it. She makes her own decisions. She doesn't let anyone bring her down because she's a woman and yet she still has to work hard to prove herself.
Do not be the opressed voice in your community. Do not regard yourself as the second one. whether you're a daughter, sister, wife, mother, grandmother, you deserve to be treated with respect and equally. You're not here to "compliment" a man. LIVE YOUR OWN LIFE WITH BRIGHTNESS AND POSITIVITY. LOVE BEING A WOMAN. Be grateful that you exist because the world wouldn't function without you. Your gender DOES NOT define the life you live. So be proud of who and what you are.
As a woman, you're beautiful.
this video fuelled my anger for today and that's why I typed this post out.
I haven't been to Penang in a very long time. My last memory of it was that it was a HOT HOT place. It still is, it was like stepping into hell. A few days ago I took a flight from JB to Penang, ALONE. It was my first trip alone and I was pretty excited. I had to board the plane at 7.00 am. Most of you know I am NOT an early riser. I like to SKIP my mornings. BUT since I was pretty excited, that didn't bother at all.
I must tell you, flying solo is very different. My excitement changed to worry then fear while flying and finally relief when I finally landed. I usually don't get these feelings when I fly, but I guess it is different when you are alone.
So anyway, my cousins and I went on a roadtrip around penang the next day. We borrowed my uncle's car and took the ferry. It was an awkward morning so by the time we left for penang again my excitement wasn't as much as before. We waited for about 2 hours for a ferry! But it was worth it because my cousins(Raj Pal and Sonia) and I managed to see jellyfishes. I SAW ONE JELLYFISH. But it was all brown and spotty due to the water pollution(EWWWW). The last time we visited Penang, there were MORE jellyfishes. here are some pictures on the ferry. :)
the shirt. :P
raj pal's face.
nawww. the sibling love.
penang char kuey teow is famous worldwide. this chap here has the best CKT. i don't know about you guys out there, but i like my CKT dry with a hint of moist and flavoured to the max, INDIAN STYLE. :P mine was extra spicy without prawns, taugeh, kucai, kerang and yeah, so it was plain CKT with some egg. and i enjoyed it!
our chef wore black goggles to protect his eyes from the hot, hot oil. look at him posing! so cute!
yeah, that's a part of Penang behind me.
this picture is epic. no description needed cause we're awesome like that.
so yeah, i had a great time despite the fact that we watched a movie and it was so violent and emotions were running high. I started crying at the next half of the movie. I couldn't stop crying. I think I like air in Penang, it is so relaxed. The people there actually smile at you. So yeah, if I had to live there, I would. I think I would prefer Penang compared to KL.
It isn't fair. I think Priety(my little sister) sucked out all the good genes from my parents and she didn't save any for the rest of us. She's awfully good looking. She's a cutie pie. I can't resist the temptation to SQUEEZE her whenever I see her.
She's got the most MESMERIZING eyes EVER. One look and she'll have you trapped in her charms FOREVER. I don't know how I'm going to handle all the attention she gets in the future. Her brown eyes(they're really brown!), they're just hypnotizing you know. I get lost in those eyes. No, I'm not sure if it is hazel or brown. But if it was hazel, I'd declare Kelly Clarkson's Behind These Hazel Eyes the official song for priety!
It is not fair. My dad has got light brown eyes. I didn't get those eyes. NONE OF US DID. the youngest one got it.
But oh my gosh, I'm glad she got it, otherwise if I'd gotten it, I'd be lost in my own image. I mean those eyes, they're gorgeous.
Because we're Asians, we don't get to see such eyes.
Don't believe me? Here are a few pictures of my sister's eyes.
I tried to put on a sad face but I can't! I've been told that I've got GREAT facial muscles. my facial expressions are FANTASTIC. So when i came across that saying "it takes more facial muscles to frown than to smile", I tried putting on a frown then a sad face. Maybe I don't have enough facial muscles. :O
I tried my very best. But I think I improved with each picture. And then I got frustrated.
I guess I'm better off at doing happy faces. It comes naturally. :3
Nobody knows what goes on in my mind but me. HECK, i can even be planning a murder now or a revolution. Nobody tells me what to do but me. Unless you're God, i won't listen to you. Nobody judges me but me. I know my weaknesses and strength. You can't judge me because you don't know what is going on in my mind. You don't know what i'm thinking about. Nobody knows.
Sometimes I write my feelings down in my diary(some of you call it a journal, but I like calling it my diary). I usually write my negative thoughts down. It is very rare for me to write my positive thoughts down. if I had positive thoughts, I would share it with the world on my blog or my Facebook page. I don't want to ruin someone else's day with negative vibes.
Nowadays I find myself writing less and less in my diary and more on my blog. I find that I'm a much happier person now. I'm contented. Satisfied. I've learnt not to judge myself so harshly. I'm a much better person now.
Why? Because I pray. I let God handle my worries and sorrows. I find that I'm a much peaceful person now.
so,nobody knows my thoughts but Him. Nobody tells me what to do but Him. Nobody judges me but Him.
This is my current wallpaper. It is a constant reminder that He listens. :)
