Bomoh

The world is a scary place and everything is just so sick. This had been happening for ages now, and it's just shocking to know how people will turn into these stuff to get things go their ways.

I'm hearing the existence of bomoh, or rather shaman. Their beliefs and practices are involved with spirits and the victims usually don't act the way they usually are, instead they act like as if they are someone else. Originally, this was used to cure patients who are sick. After such a long time, of course people tend to misuse it and now, when we just say this word, people get freaked out. It's that hazardous to the victims and the family members.

Obviously, this is done by someone very evil who is unable to get their things their ways, they turn to this way to get it done.

Some cases are beyond stupid. Bomohs are some bunch of scammers. They claim they are the real bomohs, and in order for them to give what their "patients" need or want, in particular to get husbands for these girls, they lied to these girls that they will first need to strip and do whatever not with them. That is called rape. Why do you ever need these people to find a husband for you? It's so common yet so many people are still falling prey into these people.

I just don't get the whole idea. Dogs, can actually see these people who had seek bomoh for help. Or they themselves are those species. If the dogs react very differently from the normal beings, that's a sign.

If something is not yours, or someone is not meant for you, it's just not meant to be. Even hell will not be able to accept you. The more I know, the more I just wanna stay home and not meet humans.

Women are insane. These bunch, in particular.

UK: London Day 2 Part 1

Good morning, London! It's such a beautiful day. Okay, knowing UK, even though you wake up with sunny bright weather, it can turn into dark, gloomy day the next minute. Haha.

It's breakfast time. Even Whiskey wants to join in, because he's part of the family and it's his responsibility to play host.

We did the Hop on Hop off bus. Many countries have this.

This is the Tower of London. This is a historic castle located on the north bank of the River Thames. It was once used as a prison before, though it's not its primary purpose of the castle. There's actually a lot of history with this place but now, it's mainly tourism.

This is the Big Ben I was talking about earlier, just a bigger version now since I was at the double decker.

Though there are no lions in the England's flag, somehow lions came to symbolize England. We all know that lions come from Africa. A lion is the only animal that describe the characteristic of being an English which has strength, pride, dignity and power.

We arrived at Buckingham Palace which is the workplace of the monarchy of the UK. This place is also used for official functions.

UK: London Day 1 Part 2

After the sightseeing is done, we had to confirm the ticket for the shows. If you're at a far away place like this and not see any of their box offices, why? Just, why, right?

We bought for Lion King. Ah my childhood favorite. Not sure why, but I remember Lion King vividly out of so many cartoons and movies around.

This is their signature, their box-shaped telephone booth.

To be honest, an award winning gay bar? Located in Leicester Square. Something very interesting. It's called the Ku Bar.

Then, it's time to look for food. Back to the Asian food. Chinatown located at Gerard Street. The whole street is just chinese.

To a Malaysian standard, this is very super average. But, if it's by its own, I guess it's okay.

Then, a goodnight drink from Uncle Gino. What a life, right? haha

It's going to be a long day out the next day. I'm sure.

Basic Manners

I have been living here since the day I was born. That's 3 long decades and to see the people that we have to deal with in a daily basis is so devastating. Literally.

It's all these people that I see, that I need to cross path with, that I need to encounter, and witness that made me lost hope in humanity altogether.

It isn't just one, two, or three, but whole lot of them. Each time, it comes out very naturally to try to be nice to people, but they just don't appreciate. Instead, I just don't know how they were brought up that they become so freaking rude, and they don't even know what basic manners is. Weren't they taught how is it to have human etiquette? I'm 101% sure that they don't after countless attempts of trying to convince myself that kindness still exist in this world, or rather specifically, this country.

We used to be known for our warm hospitality and now, right now, we have lost all of that. People become crude, become evil, that they do not have any more human conscious in them. It doesn't make them humans anymore. In fact, there's no difference with animals, or rather I should say, they are worse than animals now. Anytime. I'm just shocked.

I can't be blamed to not have faith, but all these people had been putting it down.

I have been having this issue all my life. Nevertheless, I am trying to change. It's something I have to freaking deal it in a daily basis.

Scenario 1:
Me: *holds the lift for people*
Them: *walks in like some big bosses and it's my responsibility to hold it for them & in return they stare at me or just ignore me completely*
Me: *I feel like closing on them and murder them there and then, only if I have the power to do so just with my eyes*

Just 2 words, thank you. Is that something too much to do? It's a THANK YOU for God's sake. Okay, a shorter version, THANKS! Like hello, don't you know all these? I'll forgive you if you're dumb. Now onwards, I will pretend like I am going to open for them, but in fact close it. I have to remind myself to do that but each time, I still end up holding it open. I'm so disappointed in myself.

Scenario 2:
Me: *walk at my normal pace*
Them: *knock into me and stare like I knock into them*
Me: Excuse me. Thank you.

This time, it's just one word. Here, we should use, sorry. I'll forgive you even if you say excuse me. That's how the French says it. Or pardon, whichever that acknowledge you are in the wrong and it's our human nature to apologize. C'mon!

Scenario 3:
Friend A: *standing near the up/down button*
Me: *talking to Friend A*
Them: *ran and pushed Friend A to press on the down button even though both had been pressed*
Me:  Did I just see that happen?
Them: *pretend nothing*
Me: *I feel like bitch slapping that dumb ass* brainless piece of shit.

Yes, that really happened, upon my eyes. I don't know if she does not have a brain. Really, please help the human race and kill yourselves - meaning that idiot and all those that only pollute the world. If you can't contribute, then just do this for the sake of this world.

I've been cursing and swearing more and more each passing day. If I bottle everything up, I'll go mad one day. For the sake of the people around me, for the sake of myself, I will still prefer to remain sane.

As a conclusion, it's now filled with uneducated and uncivilized barbarians. I am sure many will agree with this, that the problematic ones come from people born after a certain year. The probability of you meeting someone that is problematic in that range is so high in comparison with the ones born before that. It's a hypothesis but my study had shown that it's not surprisingly accurate as ever. You can disagree, but the truth remains. The fact that there are problematic disgusting people outside from that range too, but the ratio is not as high.

MJ was right all along.

UK: London Day 1 Part 1

After stoning in the cab for 1.5 hours, we finally arrived at Morden. Morden is not exactly in Central London. It's approximately 8 miles from Central.

Tada... that's where we were. After meet and greet, it's time to eat and drink. That's what Malaysians are known for. Considering the drinks from the night before is more than enough, here we were again, drinking.

That's where we went, the first stop to London Eye. We used to have our Malaysian Eye before, not sure what was he called. London-inspired. haha.

Then, the London Eye Cruise, which we will have our chance to be there. Just wait.

The famous Big Ben which is a nickname for Great Bell. The clock itself is called clock tower or Elizabeth Tower but if it includes the north end of the Palace of Westminster, it's when we call it as Big Ben. But again, whatever it is now, we refer it as Big Ben.

Then, it's the Parliament Square. It's the whole square. This is where protests and demonstrations are being held as well as a tourist attraction. 

This is St. Margaret's Church. It stands in between Westminster Abbey and the Houses of Parliament, it's more commonly called as "the parish church of the House of Commons." It was unfortunate of us that during the time of our visit, it was closed. Gosh~

Artists

Every now and then, we get stars touring around the world to perform in concerts and etc. There are things, as an artist, should or should not do.

If you want people to keep on supporting you, you should be genuine when performing. Not because you perform at a different region, there's no reason to act otherwise.

Just because you have been famous for whatever reason, your fans would want to see you perform at your best. Not "just another concert, the return is not much, so I will just do what I need to."

Punctuality is very important. If you are not punctual and is bad in your timing, being all diva-ish, you have probably lost all 10 points together. I don't get it, why must you be late when the other artists I have attended personally can be on time, right on the dot.

Then, you get the insincerity while performing. Like, humans are social creatures. They can tell whether you really want to perform or you're there just because you're there. When your fans, the people that had been supporting you ask for encore, it isn't a request anymore. It's something people expect from you. It's just another few miserable minutes. Gosh.

The closing of a concert is as important, to formally say goodbye and thank them for the support. Nobody is going to be happy if you leave without a proper goodbye.

Wedding Part 2

Then, the night continued with food, drinks, and speeches from both sides.

The first dance

Followed by the others

Then, it's the singles? Haha! Nah, more like the party had just begun, right til 1AM.

That's us, the family

With the brother.

It was a fun fun night, and we left Lewes the next day to London, which was 1.5 hours drive away. I will prefer this kind of wedding anytime in comparison with the typical chinese weddings which is usually very dreadful. The simpler the better.

Wedding Part 1

The main purpose of my visit to UK was the cousin's wedding. The travel was secondary. Or more like the wedding was used as the reason to kickstart the holidays. It was my first time attending an English wedding.

We were there about 2 ish and it probably started about 3. It was the walk in where everyone stood up.

Everyone got excited when Reena finally walked in.

Then it's the best man.

Les familie. Photo time outside at the garden with the wind blowing fiercely.

The brother and sis-in-law. This was the cocktail time and we were only given 1 champagne :( It wasn't the alcohol but I was just thirsty. :P

Grandma with both bride and groom

Lewes Part 2

Finally~my lappie has recovered. I guess it has been almost a month that I was without a laptop. I just did not know how I manage it without one. It isn't that difficult, but if it's without internet, with phone, I guess I'll die immediately.

This was the day before the wedding. It's the pre-wedding dinner at home for friends and relatives.

On the day itself, we went to town before the wedding. I guess? I can't remember much.

Apparently, this is a common thing here in Lewes. They have parade kinda thing. I guess, it's related to some religious thingy most of the time.

Then, it's time for a hot cup of coffee or chocolate before getting all prepared for the wedding which will last until midnight.

Happy Merdeka Day!

It has been more than half a month that my lappie fell sick. It's recovering well. Still, it's in the hospital.

57 years ago, we gained Independence from the British and we have come a long way. Happy Independence Day!

Though our country has been lacking in many areas, this is our home. This is where we belong and we will continue growing. Today is the day we put aside all our differences, regardless of age, gender, race, religion, belief, to observe this day together, as Malaysians.

Happy Merdeka Day to all Malaysians, both home and abroad. It has been a difficult year but things will get better.
