I’m really not tech savvy

I’m really not tech savvy. I don’t even own an iPOD, and I really need to upgrade my iPAQ. Last week, I dropped my dopod phone, and because it’ll cost me so much to fix the broken LCD, I decided to just buy a simpler and user-friendly NOKIA, and return to my old iPAQ as my PDA. I decided to give up on my dopod phone, because I hardly use half of the functions on the device!

I’m really not tech savvy. So when friends kept asking me to join FaceBook, I waited and waited for months because I wasn’t sure how to do it. Barged with overwhelming requests by friends for me to join FaceBook, I finally signed up a couple of months ago. Yeah I’m a late bloomer in FaceBook. I think I should have done that much earlier. I’m such a cow, huh?

Back to FaceBook, I think this a great platform to keep in touch with people you already know and to meet new people. I get to know so and so is also a friend of so and so, and that my friends and I have many mutual friends. Hey, isn’t this a great way to expand my circle of friends?

Anyways, today, I discovered that I’m more desirable than 69.8% of people on FaceBook.

This means my global desirability is 15,845 out of 27,717,015 people. There are 44,036 people who as desirable as I am. The top reasons why people vote me as datable are reputation, personality and smart. I thought that isn’t too bad lah! Kwang3X!


Bring out the BITCH!

I think AsiaWorks is one the best things that happened to me at this point in my life. Having completed my basic and advanced trainings, I see my outlook on life changing in front of my eyes. I feel more authentic and genuine that I’ve ever been in my life. I get stretched to the maximum so much so that I’m able to bring out the BITCH in me.  Babe in Total Control of Herself, that is!

Yeah I do have problem. I’m just overly nice that people walk all over me. My ex-husband did that. My ex-boyfriend too. My mom does that to me all the time. Not to mention the real bitches in my life. I just can’t say NO without feeling bad.

Because I took their insults lying flat and didn’t know how to bring out the BITCH in me, I became resentful of bitches and men. I hated bitches. I hated men. Now, I no longer do. I love myself and I know that I’m important as other people. I must demand my right – to be counted, to be treated as important. I know now, everyone has the power to make himself or herself be counted. I know now how to switch on this power. 

From now on, I will bring out the BITCH in me more often – to get results, that is, not revenge.

I am, afterall, a loving, passionate and powerful woman!

Cheating conundrum

Perhaps, if you love someone, let him go. If he comes back to you then he is yours. If he doesn’t you know he’s with me!  Heh heh don’t get mad, that’s just food for thought to provoke your mind a little.

Just thinking aloud. If I were to go out for a one-on-one dinner with a married friend of the opposite sex, will he be considered as cheating his other half? 

Let me elaborate. If I were to have a mentally and spiritually stimulating conversation with a married male friend over an informal relaxed dinner at a hip mamak outlet, discussing life’s peculiarities and exchanging thoughts on many things in our lives, would he be cheating on his wife?

Let’s just say, we were connecting intellectually and spiritually, not romantically and very far from sexually (because I’m a reborn Virgin, yeah in my ass, heh heh).  Would he be cheating on his wife?

It also depends on which side of the coin you’re looking at of course. As a liberal, I think that’s not called cheating.  More like chatting, I guess. But, some of my not so liberal friends don’t agree with me on this.

So when is a cheat not a cheat? I read an article in a local newspaper. The writer said, even if you have not acted on your feelings for a third party, you are still cheating.  Wow! I must be cheating on Abang Iman every time my heart goes bonker over Brad Pitt then? Heh heh 🙂

This is why I think it’s important to not judge the book by its cover.  Judgement is a self-belief, not a fact. In fact, The Holy Quran (verse 2:185) asks us to use our ears to listen, open our eyes to see and feel with our hearts first before we decide to take a stand on anything.

Tell me, which side of the coin are you on? Share with me, there is no right or wrong answer, for I will not judge you.
