* Judging by Zodiac Signs

Image
I know it is very wrong to judge a person before getting to know them well enough, and even then we shouldn't judge them at all, because everyone is unique in their own special way.
Then again, how can you not judge someone?
I believe the reason you do judge another is to remember what you are dealing with.
People come in all sorts of packages.
Some are so fantastically packed where else some aren't.
I personally judge a person by their ZODIAC SIGN.
Yeah yeah, I'm Catholic, I shouldn't believe in all this.. tell me what rules of being a Christian have you not broken?
Well I come from a family that has always been in tune with personalities and attitudes based on zodiac sign.
With the years of experience my family and I have had, we've become quite the expert at being right about someone based on their birth sign. In fact, we've even become such a pro that we know how to link their zodiac sign to their Chinese zodiac to be even more accurate of a person's…

* Are You Smarter Than A 5th Grader

Image
Grab a pencil and a piece of paper!
I just love this show! I truly do. The one thing I know about myself is that, I enjoy testing my brains. Be it in quizzes in magazines or newspapers and shows such as this. Those days it was "Wheel of Fortune" and at one time it was "Who wants to be a Millionaire" (though not many were as lucky as Jamal of Slum dog Millionaire.) These were entertaining stuff that stimulated the brain, at least mine.

Lately as entertaining as this show is, I feel terribly miserable for the contestants, who some are really intelligent, but somehow loose out on questions that are ridiculously easy. Must be the stress of being on the show. Come questions like; what vitamin is known as ascorbic acid, Canberra is the capital of; Insulin is produced in which organ of the human body, and many others, people tend not to know the right answer.

Worst is when you have a cheat and you lose because the 5th grader answered it wrongly, and you are forced to dro…

* Treat it manually!!!

Image
I have just about had enough with the attitude of so many on the road!!
People who don't stop properly at junctions but just peek to their left and right and still move out of the junction even when the passing vehicle is probably just 2 seconds away from smacking right into them.

Why?

Best part of all is these vehicles are manually geared vehicles. Motorbikes, cars and lorries!

If people who drive manual cars hate changing their gear when at a junction, why the F*** buy a manual car? These nuts choose not to change their gear or start back from gear 1 hence their refusal to come to a complete stop at points where a complete stop is no longer an option but a must!

You wanna bang into someone.. go bang yourself into a tree and don't drag others to doom because of your laziness!!

Want to Macho so much, get off the roads and show your bloody machoness else where.. the road isn't for your parade.. and treat your manual car exactly the way it should be treated, by stepping on …

* So what if he's the BOSS?

Image
Most often, we hate our bosses for apparent reasons and only a hand full of people get bosses that are qualified to be one in every aspect.
If you have worked in the public sector (as I have), you will know that your bosses may have once been your colleague and sometimes very unfortunately could even have been your junior in service.
The problem that arises with such a boss is that, you have worked with them before they got promoted, and if this person has had an excellent track record, you are sure that this boss will be respected, even by you, but what happens when their past as a normal staff was rotten crap, and suddenly because he has enough years of service, he has passed the exams, and gets a promotion as your boss? You are sure to remember all the flaws and slacks that was done when he was a normal staff like you and finally this very same person becomes a boss and starts correcting others for mistakes he so freely did when he was an ordinary staff will surely piss the living…

* Karate Kid

Image
Only today did I google to see if the guy acting as Archie in Ugly Betty's Season 3 was Ralph Macchio or not! Yeah I know and the season is close to end. My forgetfulness is what this is. I somehow miss the cast list at the start of the show for some reason or another.
Anyway, Ralph Macchio was my childhood HERO!!
Yeah, I even had a poster of his from the movie Karate Kid (in my book of course-the walls were off limits).
This Karate Kid was so cool, and even today if you asked me to watch those movies, I so would!!!
I never thought I would see him acting again, and to have him in Ugly Betty, my favorite series, is simply awesome. Call me crazy, but somehow I sensed it was him when he first appeared as Archie. I guess that Hero is still stuck somewhere in my head till now after 13 years and he's still so cute :P

* What's happening to American Idol?

Image
I have been an ardent follower of the American Idol show since it first started in 2002. Why I watch it, well for the 2 distinctive reasons, Simon Cowell and the top 10 contestants. So what happens now that he's leaving the show? Sadly, before he can even do that the show is already going down a ditch. Amongst all the seasons I personally feel this season's the worst. The contestant all sound like local pub singers, and the comments that are being sent out by the 4 judges are pathetic! Have they lost it? or have they lost it?

Even Ryan Seacrest has lost his impressive sense of capturing the audience with his used to be good hosting.

Is it the show or is it just me?

May be I have turned disappointed with the show since Adam Lambert's loss.

May be last year with Adam in it, it was just too marvellous a performance that it has reached a point none can beat it? It sure beat Bo Bice and David Cook's year.

May be Simon Fuller should just come up with something else and scr…

* A Crab Race

Image
Have you come across people who can't seem to care in improving themselves but at the same time, despises those who do? Unfortunately there are so many out there and I personally know a few and am getting so sick and tired of even having a conversation with these sort!! Not only do I have to accept you for your choice of not wanting to do better, I have to listen to you bitch about others who do? Reminds me of the CRAB story my Tutor in Grammar Class told us couple of weeks ago. Here it goes:-


THE CHINESE CRAB:
It climbs up a tree with its fellow crabby friends and once one reaches the top, it turns around and helps lift the one below it to climb up as well.



THE INDIAN CRAB:

It climbs up a tree with its other crab members and once one reaches the top, it KICKS the ones below it so as to be the only one at the top.



THE MALAY CRAB:

They all climb up together, and once one is at the top, the ones below, starts to PULL the one at the top and makes it fall.



Which Crab are you?
Apparen…

* Oh Please!!

Image
So many men walk about with bellies like this. If it is hidden under clothings it certainly won't be so obnoxious as it would be seeing them walk around without a t-shirt on.
Some men are so insensitive; to think that the people who see them bare like this are okay with it?
How often have you had a neighbour stand outside his house displaying his equator sized belly for others?
If only you could shout out and say.. "OH GO PUT ON SOME CLOTHES FOR HEAVEN'S SAKE!!!" what a better day that would be isn't it?
Then again if a woman were to have a front like this but a little more on the higher portion of their anatomy, I wonder what the reaction would be. Honestly I still wouldn't want to see it bare at the front of their gate!! Hehehe!!!

* To Make Up or Not to Make Up

Image
Why do women put on make up? Is it to hide a hideous face? To enhance a gorgeous look? A hobby?
A habit that makes one dysfunctional without?
Well what ever the reason may be, too much is certainly not the answer, and none doesn't make you any glamorous.
Most women, make themselves up to look radiant and fresh and yes, colours make the world a happier place, but unless you are a clown, you might want to take it easy.
Those who don't use any make up at all, are either lucky to have a fantastic skin, that glows and radiates constantly, or are just living in denial that they don't need it to look better. Though most of these sort that I know of could do the people around them some justice by not looking like sleepy heads from dusk to dawn!
The next thing is when should you make up?
When you need to go to the grocery store or to the mall?
When you have a hot date? A party? Work?
Well some people fall in the category of "TAK KENAL TEMPAT!"
I wonder, why some woul…

* Rock somewhere else lar!!

Image
The Maxis Rocks On! USB Modem was one hell of a hit in sales I think last year. Well done Maxis, but I wish to share one doink-i-fied experience I encountered about exactly a year ago. I went over to Maxis Customer Service Counter in Mid Valley, to return my old modem as I had registered for a new one with a better savings plan and faster speed. My should have been only 10 minutes or less service got me waiting for the CS Staff for almost an hour because there was this couple who insisted they got this ROCKS ON! MODEM of Maxis, as that is what they want!!!
No stock? Not their problem, they were so persistent in making sure the CS Staff called out to every other outlet till they got one. One hour later, and still none available, I obviously stepped in and gave a piece of my mind. Something I feel I should have done sooner than after an hour!!!

Some people can be such a pain in the arse for others!! Talk about the height of kiasu-ness, Oh My GOD!!!

* Lucky in Love?

Image
Love makes the world go round? I don't know how far that's true but it certainly can make your head spin! How many out there are so lucky in love, to have the first person they love be the one they marry and depart from at death? Yeah many wish for such luck, but unfortunately not many are as lucky in this aspect of life.

Ok, I'm not here to talk as a LOVE Guru, but the fact that, those who so happen to be lucky somehow think they have the right to belittle those who aren't. They take this holier than thou role upon others and it can seriously be annoying (only God knows what they are truly hiding away from everyone else :P )

Do you think anyone has the right to condemn another for having a failed or many failed relationships or even marriages?

To be tagged as a flirt because people had no idea you were changing boyfriends only because you haven't found the right one, or no one has found you to be right for them? Well looking at things on the surface level, I th…

* Yes Anyone But Not Everyone!

Image
It is a privilege to many these days to have the opportunity to further their education at the convenience of their time and most of all finances. With the many Universities that are open for working adults, anyone can look into advancing their education for higher qualifications that can help them in their work force or just for personal satisfaction.
There are courses for almost everyone in almost every field, and all one needs to do is to meet the requirement of entry and that too is made flexible so that senior citizens and those who had poor grades in school, could still work their entry by sitting for general knowledge paper and interviews, known as an OPEN ENTRY.

Let me now get to my point.

As easy as this is now available, some people do have the perception that it has no standard!

Anyone can enrol into these Universities!

Anyone can get themselves in a Degree/Post Graduate course!

Yes that is TRUE.. ANYONE CAN! but don't forget not EVERYONE GRADUATES!!

So to those whom I h…

* I am Malaysian First then Indian?

Image
Lately there has been much talk on which one comes first for you.
Are you Malaysian first then your race or your race first then a Malaysian?
As much as I have always looked at myself as a Malaysian first then Indian (since I was very very young to be frank), I somehow don't have the faith that this is how my country looks at me!
I have nothing to say about the 1Malaysia policy, basically because it's just a name sake policy not just to me, but to many Malaysian out there.
I love my country very much, and have in many ways been proud to be a Malaysian despite the many times it has failed to be fair to those deserving. Then again, who is perfect in this world that they can say they were constantly fair?
I sure hope my country remembers how much its people truly cared and cares for it, and work on maintaining that!!
God Bless you Malaysia!!

* Like Mother Like Daughter

Image
Very often we see how daughters to a family become what their mothers are, and it is actually a cycle that most often is unavoidable.
You become what you have been thought to be.
If you have a mum who is positive and nurturing, you become positive and nurturing. If you have a mum who is independent and strong, you become that too.
If you have a mum who is kind to everyone around her and has many people loyal and sincere to her due to her attributes, you will reap the goodness of it too.
Reason?
Exposure. If you are exposed to happiness, kindness, generosity, independence, confidence, and most of all LOVE, you become an adult who takes on the world with the best outlook because you we were nurtured that way.
Over the past weeks, I have been in contact with quite a number of people, and without a doubt, I can confirm that positive people come from positive mums and vice versa.
Yes there are those who try not to be influenced by the rottenness of their upbringing, and some claim n…

* Mother or Maid?

Image
I am currently reading this book called "10 conversations you need to have with your children" and conversation one had this question that made me have my say as well. Rabbi Shmuley Boteach, the author of the book, asked the eldest daughter of a family this question, "Is that Lady your mother or your maid?" Apparently this girl had no sense of helping her mother in any of the housework at home, and lived as though she was no part of the family, and this drove the mum quite the much to insanity, having to do everything alone at home.
How often have you come across girls like this?

Personally I have seen enough myself. Daughters who think they are meant to be served and carried on the head for everything in the house. Some girls have no sense to helping their mother, and some are so grown up that their mums still serve them tea on a tray, serve food on the table and after to have to wash their dirty dishes as well, out of the many others. Nothing in the house is loo…
