Humans Are Still Humans

I'm back after a long 9 hours drive. I'm having cramps all over my body especially at my back. Never sleep in the car cause you are bound to sleep put in one position for 3 hours before getting up with a sore back. Groan.

Raya was fine, glad to see the clear blue sky and unpolluted air. But raya money was disappointing:( Sigh. I was targeting higher. Well, there's Chinese New Year coming up!

My family and I were at some food stall eating when a woman with a broad shoulders came serving us. I was a bit blur at first as my aunt was seemed to be giggling and sending signals. I took a look at the waitress again who was a Malay wearing baju kurung only to realize: she's a man. I just grinned the whole way but I have to say that lady had a pretty make up especially around the eyes and the fake eyelashes.

But I was thinking: What Do People Think About Homosexual People?

Some people keep on trying to avoid this subject because they think it's too sensitive. He-lo? May I say that gays & lesbians are living around us. If racism issues can be spoken aloud, I don't see the problem of this.

I'm not here to judge one's orientation cause each and everyone of us is different. My mother may like doing accounting but I like literature; my best friend likes punk rock but I like classic. Each of us sees things differently as it goes down to our lives too like, religions, music, food, fashion, etc.

They say that 'boys like girls and girls like boys' but what happens if they become neutral? Do you shun them away? Many people look down on these homosexual people because they think these people are weird & freaky. Whenever a homo person walk by, people along the way would give a look and snicker. I feel bad sometimes as I think how tough it is for them to pass through all of these.

Even though I do not know how must they feel but I know that we have to accept them for who they are. Okay so maybe this man who dresses as a woman may look freakishly tall, big hands and straight, long hair - to me, I still see him as a human being. There might be some uncomfortable feelings but it is because we keep looking at them as 'aliens' - seeing them as though they came from Jupiter.

Lets put it this way. You have a best friend who has been you're first friend, all the way through high school, college and your wedding - one day, he or she spills that 'I'm a homosexual'. Do you cut off with that person just because he/she admitted the truth and hated lying from you? If I were there to judge, I find the narrow minded friend is not a true friend at all. If my friend was a homosexual, he/she will still be my friend and I wouldn't want to lose my friend.

There are parents who disown their kids who admit they are homosexual just because they feel ashamed. If I were the mom, I can't bear the thought of losing my kid just because I can't accept him for who he is. And because of this, many of them turn for prostitution and people take this advantage on why homosexual should be wipe out.

I admit that they might appear weird looking at times and society tend to look down at them but a human is still a human no matter what they are. They ought to be treated as fair as the others and be shown respect like the others too.

So, yeah, people should learn to accept people no matter what they are.. If you treat me nice, I treat you nice. It's your actions that judge you; not who or what you are.

But....What do you think? (Write an essay if you have to, lol)

Random Thoughts Part 2

Hello. I'm blogging for the 2nd time in a day for the first time. Why? Cause in a few more hours, I will be heading to my hometown where I know most certainly internet is hard to get there.

I'm just looking through the web for some humour and came across some pretty hilarious photos. Not sure if you had seen them but I had a great laugh:DD

what a really great tip.

omg. Gross.



loveeeee this ad:DD

Random Thoughts Passing Through

I'm really bored today. I've been online since morning, then off, then on, then off, then on again. But I'm going back to my hometown tonight - in the wee hours and driving there for 10 hours:/ Dang. I wanna fly highhhhhh!

But I went to visit a relative who is undergoing dialysis at a hospital. She was in great pain and the worst part is she is going to celebrate Raya in bed. I didn't talk cause I never met her and she was in too much pain to talk so instead, I scanned across the dialysis room which had around 10 - 15 patients in it.

Most of the patients are around age 55 & above and are mostly circled by their husbands or wives. What is really sweet is that there was this lady who felt uncomfortable at her back and her husband got up without a word and massaged her back. It was like a silent love. OK,OK so maybe I observe too much but hey, that's my gift. Bahahahhaha:D

But there are so many stories on how the husbands abuse their wives, abandoning their responsibilities, alcoholics, etc. I do have aunts who found their husbands were having affairs and the next thing you know: divorce. It's sad but maybe it's for the better.

Sigh. It's so true when they say, "The Power of Love". We must accept & give love but not fall for love easily. I've seen many break ups & few divorces and the idea of 'love' is giving me doubts.

"My love for you is as deep as the ocean and high as the sky."

"If I could swim in your eyes, it'll be heaven on earth."

"Your beauty in my eyes are forever & ever lasting."

"The beating of my heart is every beat of my love for you."

Sometimes these make me sick but sometimes they are so beautiful. Well, most of the time books like Twilight & movies like Jerry McGuire and Titanic are examples of the most beautiful quotes.

While love is important, for the time being I think all I need is love from my friends & family and the best part is I have both of them(: So maybe I'll be eyeing on some guys I like but I'm not looking for my so called 'Mr. Right'. I'm 16 for crying out loud.

I know some girls around my age are already putting their boyfriends before them and dreaming the day of them hand in hand walking down the aisle. When it ends, there will be heartaches & tears. Go have a boyfriend if you want but don't attach yourself too close to him. Remember you still need a space to love yourself.

I'm gonna change my layout. I'm getting bored and more hungryyyyy.
1 more hour, QM. You can do it. Then, it's RAYA!

Selamat Hari Raya & Maaf Zahir Batin, xoxo

Do People Understand 1Malaysia Concept?

God I miss blogging. It felt like I haven't blog for a year. Sorry, things get pretty busy with school around but now- Raya is here! A whole week away from the city and having fun at the countryside.

Anyway, I'm going to write about something that happened quite a while ago but certainly hasn't been forgotten. When our country celebrated its 52nd Independence Day and the people had their new moto - 1Malaysia. Sadly, a few days later, something happened that changed everyone's views.

It happened in Shah Alam when the residents there objected the building of a Hindu temple in their area. 90% of the residents are Muslims - but what about the rest? Don't they the rights to have what they believe in too? This lead to serious & sensitive issues especially when a group of people came protesting against the proposal of the temple by walking down the street with a severed cow's head which made the Hindus really, really upset & angry.

I was angry. Why? Because that act was immature, insensitive & irresponsible. I may not be a Hindu but I strongly believe in respecting one and another even if it means that person is from a different planet. The most shameful part is that the hurtful act was done by the Muslims on the holy day - a Friday. So I was angry and shameful at the same time.

An Indian man spoke during a meeting to solve this case, he said, "Why can't we all live in peace?" And this lead to hurls and rude remarks.


Why can't we leave in peace together without needing to feel threatened? Why can't mosques, churches & temples be built side by side without the need of wars? What makes us so different that our beliefs can't be share on the same land? Whenever something bad happens, we tend to point fingers at others while in actual fact, we are the ones.

It doesn't mean if you're a black, you can't sit beside a white. It's not a sin for a Christian to enter a mosque. It's fine to be friends with people from different races, skin colours & religions. We have to stop being so selfish & narrow minded, we have to co-exist with one another. Because we don't the right to say that, 'My religion is the truth.' God never said that, in fact, the Prophet Muhammad created the first law on earth whereby everyone let it be Jewish, Muslims or other beliefs must live in harmony and respect each other.

So I don't see what's the fuss of having a Hindu temple in a 90% muslim people's are because the way I see it, everyone is different and we have to accept them and what they believe.

We will never understand other people if we remain ignorant to our own thoughts only. The world is not create for one species only.
