Cinderella


Assalamualaikum,
{Background music: Jesse McCartney’s The Best Day of My Life and Beautiful Soul}

Maybe there are a small group of girls who did not know Cinderella. Me, on the other hand [and maybe you too] falls under the other group -- we know Cinderella, touched by story and see ourselves wearing the gown, riding the pumpkin and lost one glass slipper.

Most of my childhood years were filled with only one dream -- to marry a Prince. I had this idea of bumping into one of the Prince [in my case would be The Raja Muda Perak :D] and maybe he will see me of all the crowd. Childish, yes. Then, when I understand that that possibility was almost impossible, I started aiming for a higher class gentlemen. As time move by, as I read and learn more, all I wanted was my own Prince Charming that would secure my hand and rescue me from my life -- not that I have miserable life, though.

When I think of the desire to have a 'Prince Charming' to 'rescue' me from my life, now, it sounds so impractical. First, my life is fine, it is great in fact. Secondly, even if my life is almost miserable -- why would I specifically rely on a guy to make it better?

Hold on that thought!
IFF you think I am trying to deny the significance of men in women's life; you might want to use the hand brake too. I am not a feminist.

Please consider this -- of all the fairytales we know since childhood, plus the modern one -- tell me about the 'Princess' or the main female character. Now answer this, didn't their life pictured as miserable? Major question: is it that hard to be a woman that we deserve to be described as a being in agony that requires a guy to pull her from the well? It's just a rhetoric question.

My main point is I do not think that our daughters should [anymore] rely on such mental model. Life is not always easy, but there are ways to make it better. The most important message I would like to convey to all daughters out there, you made your life, not another human being. Fight! As for the 'Prince Charming' model, well, they are metaphoric.

I am not fairytales hater; I’m just a rational. Princesses out there, you are beautiful for who you are!

Wassalam.

Goodbye Ben Jern

Oh my... another good bye. Why laaaaaaaaaa~!

Today, we bid farewell and we wish a great future to our one and only Loh Ben Jern of #BenHafiz FlyFM. Our heroes of insanity.
It's the final 30 minutes of flying with Ben's craziness... So sad! Huhuhuhuhu. Ben Jern has been on air since 10 PM last night - slumber party katanya - and I only sleep 3 hours plus, listening to him sambil kemas barang.
I know, some of you might think: "What is wrong with this girl, crying over a DJ...". Clearly, you don't know Ben, you never listen to these #FunnyBigBoys #BenHafiz and you never listen to Mrs. Boopathy and Pak Jamil or their Krappi Call. They are the only person on earth who can make Malaysians do *obviously* crazy stuff over a phone call. Hahahaha. Ben is the most adorable talking goat. LOL!


*** They are airing the Grandmother of All Krappi Call again - where Ben finally got krappi-ed *** I was laughing madly in the car earlier this morning... And then I cried. Oh it was su…

Celebrate the Love: Bones and Booth

I have exam at 2 pm today and I've been burning the midnight oil. But I really really really want to share this: Bones and Booth's wedding vow. Well sort of wedding conversation, actually.
I love them and I am happy that the characters finally get their happy ending.

To Bones, the coolest geek I ever known, and to Booth, congratulations!


Booth: "You know, I worked really, really hard on my vows, but you know, now that we're here—look, hey, do you remember the last time that we were here, standing right around this spot? It was right in the beginning, before we really knew each other. I was trying to get away from you, because you were irritating me, and you chased me down and you caught up to me. I said to you, 'Listen, I just have to get all my ducks in a row,' right, and then you said to me, [Brennan: "I can be a duck."]. Yeah. We had been chasing each other for a long time, been chasing each other through wars and serial killers and ghosts and sn…

Getting Out of the Slump

Sometimes I feel like crying will solve everything. When I feel like that, I know I am in the slump - "The New Moon" slump. I called it that because I am in a similar state as Bella Swan in The New Moon after Edward Cullen left her.
"It's like a huge hole has been punched through my chest."
"Normal memories were still dangerous. If I let myself slip up, I’d end up with my arms clutching my chest to hold it together, gasping for air..."
These.
It's hard to get out from this state, but I have bounce back before. It took a lot of patience, a lot of determination, a generous amount of support, and most importantly: a strong will.
The strongest will is fueled by living up to the purpose of our creation - to submit and worship Allah.
Crying does solve everything; when you used up all your energy and cry in your solat and doa.
It is always the darkest before the new moon. And stars are the brightest during this time.

I'll find my way - I assure myse…
