So what?!

Yea, so what if I do not know how to sew and cook. So what? It's not a big deal. I hate the look that everyone gives when they find this out. Does not knowing how to cook or sew make me any less of a girl?

"Didn't your mother or school teach you how to sew & cook?"
Well, sorry to dissapoint you but my mother didn't have time to teach me & I never really paid attention to any of my home economics classes.(I normally just failed them) The basic of my cooking is making an omelette. But for sewing, I know nothing.

People look at me in disbelief...(even some of friends look at me this way.)
You have to learn it, they say. I normally nod my head & pretend to agree BUT what if I do not want to learn it. Is that so wrong??

How will you survive?
Well, I will...I just will. You don't need to care.

I was brought up by working parents. During my younger years, I was taken care by a nanny. And her job was just to make sure I eat and do my homework. No, don't give me that sad pitiful look. Guess what, I'm fine being brought up this way. Sure, I used to be jealous of kids whose mums are housewives BUT if my mum is a housewife, my life would be quite boring. My mum will make sure I study, that means I won't get to watch TV or go online.

Eventhough, my parents aren't around during the weekdays. They would be around during the weekends to make up for all that lost time. We would always go out & enjoy ourselves. But as I grew up, we just stayed home. Even so, we would spend our weekends catching up with each other.

By being brought this way, I was taught to be independent. I was taught to handle my own issues. I was taught to speak my mind out, to have opinions. Yea, I wasn't those kids who went crying to their mother for a bruised thumb. And yup, I was one of those kids who talked alot in class, sometimes, disagreeing with what the teacher is saying. So yea, teachers thought that I was damn troublesome & annoying.

Well, I seen my parents bringing their paperwork home before. I used to just sit right next to them and watch them. They were so busy...and it amazes me how focus they were in their job.
So yea, I put importance in career. When I was younger, I knew that I want to be a working busy person when I grow up. It looks like so much FUN!
Plus haven't you heard that "To retire is to expire."? Yea, I rather work than to retire. And guess what, those are my parents plans too.

And for your info, I do not have rich parents. My parents are just hardworking people who wanted to make a better life for their children.

And even until today, I still want to be a successful business person. So what if I know more about event management and journalism than I know about cooking and sewing. So what?!

BTW, I just want everyone to know that having working parents isn't wrong or pitiful. Just because my parents are always working, does not make them bad parents. Children of working parents sometimes aren't troubled but instead we're level headed, mature people. So quit assuming that working parents are wrong and kids of working parents needs pity and proper parents.

I'm tired of people telling what I should be. I'm tired of people telling my parents how to educate their children. I'm tired of all of this shit!

Much Ado About Our Healthcare

During this week, something terrible but hilarious when you looked back, happened to me.

It was a normal Monday morning. It was close to the end of the month, so I was awaiting for my salary to come in. I was just trying to just hold on till the end of the month. Typical monday. Nothing eventful yet.

Then, it was lunchtime.
I went to lunch with my colleagues.
I ordered myself a lovely nasi kukus with ikan keli. That means steamed rice with catfish for those of you who don't read malay. 

One of my colleague often order this and it always looked good so I decided to give it a try.

Bad mistake.

I ended up having a fishbone stuck in my throat. When you think of it, it's pretty silly. But it scared the living daylights out of me at that moment. I tried swallowing rice to push the fishbone down but after half a bowl later, I found it to be not working.

I heard from my dad when I was younger that, if a fishbone get stuck in your throat, you had to do an operation. And that only fueled my fea…

An open letter to the scared and confused dreamers.

This is a letter for myself. But this is also a letter for those who find themselves in the same place as I am.

I'm going to admit that life is different from what I initially thought when I was younger.

When I was younger, I assumed that by now, I would have reached or be somewhat close to the life of my dreams.

But now that I reach this point, I realised that I was wrong. I did not take into account that tertiary education took years. Personally, I don't regret my tertiary education because I did enjoy it. Yes, it was insane and difficult but it was fun and I met amazing people there.

It's been a year since my graduation and I find myself being frustrated. I felt disappointed in myself because no, I don't have my own apartment and no, I'm not rocking that cool ass job that I always  dreamed of. But no, I don't hate my job either. In that sense, I'm fortunate I suppose. But I feel that it may not be the kind of thing that I want to do.

However, for me, to get t…

Alter ego, SUIT UP!!

Man, it feels odd to have people believe in you at the very moment you do not trust yourself. It feels odd to hear people's praises of you when you're feeling incapable. So I guess, it's time for one of my many alter ego to suit up if I wanna win that debate competition!!

Like any other person, I have many alter ego's...and I'm gonna list most of them today.

Ms Drama Queen
Likes :Attention and spotlight. She's a diva.
Dislikes :People stealing her spotlight or not getting her spotlight.
She is : A real drama queen. She whines & complains alot though. She thinks that the world revolves around her.
Can't handle :Ms Productive

Ms Arrogant
Likes : Winning, winning and winning.
Dislikes : Losing and losers.
She is : A real mean arrogant person. She really doesn't care about the other people. She thinks she is the best. Mostly, she thinks that her opponents aren't even her equal unless they have proven otherwise. Even then, she still thinks she is better than …
