When the pot calls the kettle black

I've always been a little tetchy when it comes to talking about races. As much as it is worth, I get annoyed whenever a Chinese complaints about how unfair life is for him in Malaysia. Oh, sure anyone can very well see the real situation with their rights and all but would you blame them?

One thing I've learned since coming to university is that the Chinese can be just as selfish or much worse than the Malays. The very first friend I made in my course during my first year was a Malay and I've been accepted by the Malays more readily than the Chinese for all my strange traits and peculiarities. I've never fitted in with either group but if experience is to be drawn on to make a judgment, I would say that I've had a better time mixing around and talking with the Malays than the Chinese in my course.

Well, with that being said, the situation would be just as bad for the Malays with the Chinese in power if the flipside is to happen. Its just the luck of the draw that they are and we just gotta live with it. Oh don't give me bullshit about the situation in Singapore. I should think that the Chinese in Singapore have a very different mindset from the ones in Malaysia. I'm not saying the Malays are not being unfair, I'm just saying they're being humans and protecting their own people is a very human thing to do. The Chinese students seems to be doing a rather excellent job protecting their own people too as I have seen.

I'm not defending them but I can 't help feel annoyed with all of that being said and especially when I get spam in my blog that seems to reek with racism. Is that how you are going to show that you're better? By posting comments filled with vulgarities calling them 'babi'? Or how about the comments bursting with smug pride regarding their success since moving overseas? A bad case of sour grapes I would think and with them being really wrinkly prunes.

Oh I do complain about the Malays, but for me its more for their traits rather than hating them just because they are the takers of our rights. Besides, I complain about everybody and everything under the sun and to not complain would be a discrimination to them don't you think?

PS: I know some of you out there are bound to be angered but I am who I am. Love me or hate me. I don't bloody care.

It Hurts

Lately, I've just lost the mood to write anything. Oh there are lots to tell and lots to write about but whenever I do start, it does not come out. As much as feelings ebb and flow just like the tides, I guess the will to write adheres to a similar pattern.
Well, I'll just post a song. I have been listening to this song alot. Somehow I feel it is just beautiful with its simple melody and the clarity of the voice is soothing. The singer is Mariha and she's a German. To me, she's simply gorgeous. Her facial bone structure is amazing!

LibraryThing sucks!

I thought of giving this LibraryThing a try since numerous people have it on their blogs. It looks kinda cool , some sort like a visual bookshelf. Thus, I visited their webpage and and I was greeted with various praises. At one point they became arrogant (as shown in exhibit 1) and I thought, "Wow, this must be a super fantastic bloody wonderful thing!". I must, must, must, must sign up and be a part of their so very satisfied members.

Exhibit 1


I clicked 'Join Now' and proceeded to to fill in the required fills. All was going dandy and fine until I reached the email field. I know its optional but I thought what the heck and filled that in as well.

That was then I discovered their stupid email field had a character limit (Exhibit 2). What the hell? Who is stupid enough to create a website and put a character limit to the email field? I know its optional but if you don't want anyone filling in their email then don't put the bloody thing altogether.


Exhibit 2


I got so riled up I didn't register after all...

Hairspray- Big Blonde and Beautiful

I loved this song solely because of the lyrics. The play of words is simply wonderful and the creativity is astounding.
When the last line hits you, it sends a tingle up your spine for pure literary appreciation.

"Who wants a twig when you can climb the whole tree"
