Code Geass

Code Geass an anime...and I was recently rewatching it. This anime is an action show. I'm not recommending you this show. I just rewatched it and I felt like blogging about it.

The story begun with a 17 year old student who is also a discarded Britannian prince, Lelouch Lamperouge receiving a power called "Geass" from C.C(His contractor, he made a contract with her). With Geass, he plans to change the world by destroying Brittania. The reason he wants to change the world is because he wants to create a kinder world for Nunnally, his blind and waist-down paralysed sister.

Soon, he even had his own army called the Order Of The Black Knights. He continue to fight Brittania as a terrorist called Zero leading the Order Of The Black Knights!
Somehow, he becomes 99th Emperor of Brittania and the 1st Emperor of the World!
In the end, he sacrifes himself...for the peace of the world. (He was like Hitler when he ruled the world!)

I couldn't but just sigh at Lelouch and wonder at our similarities.

What similarities do he have with me or with the rest of the world?

The fact that he wore so many masks and acted on the world stage, never revealing his true self...Indeed, he was a true master of deception.

Who was he at the end of the day?

Lelouch Pictures, Images and Photos
Was he Lelouch Lamperouge?
The smart, lazy, kind-hearted student who loved to gamble on himself in a game of chess.

Was he Zero, the terrorist?
The miracle creator, the man who was said to be the ally of justice.

Or was he Lelouch Vi Britannia?
The cruel dictator emperor who ruled with an iron fist.

No matter what mask he wore, he had one true goal which was to create a kinder world...a world of hopes and ambition, a world where tomorrow exists.
And to think that he sacrificed himself for this world. To think that he became the center of hatred so that when he was killed, evil and hatred died with him. In the end, making the world free from evil and hatred.

He sacrificed himself for a better world, knowing that he wouldn't have a chance to live in that kinder world he created. He was too kind indeed.
I cried when he died. (Yea, I know he's just a fictional character BUT if he was real, I would really respect him!)

While he fought for the world, he lost so many things including his loved ones. Even so, he accepted the curse of being alone and tainted. He continued his battle. As he fought, he continue to lose. What has he gained since the battle begun? He gained nothing and yet he fought. And in the end, he reached his goal by sacrificing himself. Still at the end of the day, he was at the losing end.

We all wear masks whether we like it or not... We lie according to our circumstances. We lie in order to protect, love or do whatever we claim with a lie.

"Humans search for happiness no matter what..."
-Lelouch Lamperouge and C.C-

I completely agree with that line. We do search for happiness.

Happiness is only real when it is shared.
-Johnson Christopher McCandless-

Code Geass really got me thinking about human masks, happiness and world peace. And as a tribute to Lelouch's sacrifice :

And as Lelouch dies, the stage curtain falls, ending his life, his story and everything else. This is the birth of a new beginning.

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 …
