Pride and prejudice

Recently, I just watched Pride and prejudice for the billionth time. (You really have no idea how many times I watch this movie!)

I love this movie. (Maybe, I should read the book??) Anyhow, it's obvious Jane Austen is a feminist! She definitely supports independent woman. And the title Pride and Prejudice is perfect since it does play on the theme of pride and vanity.
I don't know if Jane Austen wrote this in the way she imagine her perfect life to be or if she wrote it in skepticism because Jane Austen never married and she never like the idea of marriage.

However, in pride and prejudice, I like the fact that she convey marriage as something pleasant and I agree with her idea of marriage. Marriage is about marrying somebody you, that partner completes you and inspires you. Your partner must be someone you're willing to share a family with.

Now on with Mr.Darcy, I realize that there are many girls out there who loves him. Some people even say he is the perfect man. Somehow, I'm not surprised that people love Mr.Darcy because I love his character too~!!

Sure, he may come off as a arrogant rich unpleasant sort of fellow at first. Even Elizabeth Bennet hates this man at first. But later, we find out that he is a nice, caring, loving, loyal, kind and rich person. Tell me. Which girl wouldn't want such a man? Anyhow, I like the way Jane Austen created his character.

Pride and prejudice is one of my favourite love stories ever...(but then again, I don't know much love stories.)

I love P&P too. I'm really into Brit Lit and P&P is one of my favorite "love stories." The new version of the movie has some awesome-tastic photography. I read the book after watching the movie. Even though I read old 1800's novels all the time, I must say that if I hadn't watched the movie first, I probably wouldn't have understood the book. It helps to put faces to the names.

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 …
