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.

Punishing the victim? unjust ruling against S.Kalaichelvi

I am sad and disappointed in the Malaysian judicial system. The system that punishes its victims and gets away with it. This incident happened last year and I found out about this today when a picture depicting the story of this woman went viral on Facebook today. My first reaction: I was appalled! Here's the newspaper report on S. Kalaichelvi a 24 year old woman who defended herself against a potential rapist.

IPOH: A 24-year-old housewife was sentenced to two years’ jail for culpable homicide for killing a man who allegedly repeatedly pressured her to have sex.
High Court judge Justice Zainal Adzam Abd Ghani found S. Kalaichelvi guilty of killing M. Kumaran, 30, at her home in Taman Bistari, Ayer Tawar, on Jan 7 last year between 3am and 3.30am.
”According to the facts of the case, the act was done in a cruel manner.
”The accused had also tried to dispose of the evidence after killing him with a stainless steel parang and a rod,” he said in his judgment here yesterday.
The prosecution had amended the charge from Section 302 of the Penal Code for murder which carries the mandatory death penalty to Section 304A for causing death by negligence.
The latter charge carries a maximum two years’ jail or a fine, or both upon conviction.
Justice Zainal Adzam ruled that the sentence would run from the date of her arrest on Jan 10 last year.
According to the facts of the case, Kalaichelvi had killed Kumaran using both weapons in self-defence.
During mitigation earlier, defence counsel Charan Singh said Kalaichelvi had acted in self-defence when Kumaran broke into her house and demanded that he “sleep with her”.
“Kalaichelvi was also pregnant at the time and was only protecting herself.
“She is a mother of three children, aged one, five and six,” Charan Singh said, adding that Kalaichelvi was also a first-time offender.
Deputy Public Prosecutor Nur Laila Mohamed Nazil said a post mortem report showed that there were multiple slash wounds on the deceased’s head.
“The accused hacked the victim repeatedly on his head,” she said, urging the court to mete out a sentence commensurate with the offence.
Nur Laila also told the court that Kalaichelvi’s husband G. Kalipar, 26, would be charged under Section 201 for disposing of the evidence related to the killing.

Now you tell me something, when an unknown man breaks into your home in the middle of the night with the intention to rape you knowing that you are pregnant and that YOUR life and your baby's life is at stake, wouldn't you do all you can to save yourself? Won't you do all can to defend yourself against a rapist? If you ask me, he deserved the death. You don't go around terrorising women by raping them. If you do, be prepared to face the consequences. And in this case, death. HE DESERVED THIS. HE ASKED FOR IT.

The poor woman only defended herself and her baby! The judgement is unfair! She shouldn't have had been charged in the first place! WHAT BULLSHIT IS IN THE JUDGE'S HEAD?

We need to save this poor lady. This is UNJUST! I've never come across such a screwed up judgement before! We need to voice out against this! We need to protest against this! WE NEED TO ORGANIZE ONE. JUSTICE FOR S. KALAICHELVI!
