Losing It

Me and Ms Fantaghiro have been having badminton session for the past two weeks in our quest to loose all the flabs. She's getting lumpy and I'm just bloated. We love to eat and laze around, that's what got us there in the first place. Ms Fantaghiro blames the cooking channel on Astro. Me? I just love to eat, plus having all those night functions does not help my body at all.

Anyway, we've been playing at this patch of green near my mum's house with a small 10 year old boy neighbour. He's like an energizer bunny, man! So much energy and still can play faster than both of me and Ms Fantaghiro combined! We were huffing and puffing around the green. The weather nowadays does not help at all. It's raining cats and dogs sometimes in the afternoon when its about lunchtime or even late afternoon around time to leave the office. But me and Ms Fantaghiro are still very psyched to get fit and slim, so rain or shine, we will still play badminton.
Plus I hate it when people commented on my weight. I do detest it when people start saying things about my body, especially when it involves those excess fat hahaha oh well, people will be people. They will say whatever they want. Important thing is I'm doing something about it. Very important to have a partner that's committed to it too, so when you get lazy, she will pick you up and vice versa. So Ms Fantaghiro, another round of badminton?

Colour blind

I’m wearing a green batik baju kebaya today. I love the colour green. To me, it signifies peace and also loving the earth. A colour is a colour, it doesn’t reflect any political standing. Colours are supposed to reflect your mood be it happy, sad, cheery, bubbly. It also reflects your personality. I get really mad when some people made off hand remarks not to wear certain colours such as green, light blue and possibly pink. What is this?! I’m not going to a rally, I’m just going to the office.

For heaven’s sake, just leave the colours alone. We are not school children that you can frighten into obedience. Prohibiting certain colours, or not to promote certain states or support certain political party. You can do better than that. Have you not learnt that slavery doesn’t bring loyalty, it brings disconcert amongst the slaves. Have you not learn that the Japanese/Portuguese/British occupation on Malaya makes people rebellious because they did not want a foreign ruler to govern their lives? Then what makes you think that you can bully people to your liking? Come on, grow up! Please do not forget that the people have chosen before, and they won’t hesitate to choose again.

In my own way, I will wear whatever damn colour I choose, whenever I choose!
