What the world has come to

A conversation with my sister in law today led me to write this... 

I seriously can't believe how selfish and low people have become. People as in family and friends. How people talk about you behind your back and in front of you, they not only praise you, but put you on a throne. In return for what? They probably sleep in peace knowing that they have hurt the feelings of another. The more the hurt, the more peaceful the sleep. 

Since my NLP, I had decided to be more open and "out there" - with friends and family alike. We have been joining in the cousins get togethers, etc. Letting these people into our little bubble. Our own very private space. 

In the end what happened? We realized that our perception at the beginning of these people turned out to be true. They are not worth our time and energy and oh, money too. I personally realized that it was a mistake to let anyone in our little bubble. I took it as a learning experience. 

Today when this topic came up with my SIL, I just couldn't help but pour it out on my blog. 

About two weeks ago, I restricted almost 90% of the people on my Facebook. "A bold move" my husband said. But for some reason, I felt it was right. How these people tend to judge us just because we share. Seriously? So now, only Public posts can be viewed by them. Hah!

I couldn't believe my ears when an uncle commented that why we share where we go and that we are loaded with money because we travel! I almost wanted to throw my hot tea at his face! What the fuck man? I am sorry, did we ask any money from you?

And another person said in such a jealous tone that our photos together look happy. Huh? So we are supposed to be sad and miserable?

Oh and the best part was when I got to know from a cousin SIL that a distant aunt - who isn't related to me directly, and who isn't even in Peninsular Msia, can specifically call her sister, who is an aunt, just to announce that hubby and I are in Cameron Highlands for dinner! We are traveling and can spend so much money to go to CH for dinner?! Huh? Do they even know how we ended up in CH? But wait, why bother? People like these will just keep believing whatever they want to and honestly, I don't give a fuck anymore. 

Can we live without a social circle? Of course we can. All we need is a few good people in our lives. We have had enough experience to know who they are. My SIL and brother are definitely the first people. A handful of others who we have come to love. Surprisingly, they are not even immediate family or supposedly besties. 

To you people who sleep in peace by hurting others, intentionally or not, may karma hit you so bad, that the day you have to sleep for good, you will suffer so bad that even God may just close an eye upon you and may everyone you think who loves you, leaves you to die miserably alone. 

Ahhh, feels so good now!

Batiste Dry Shampoo

Remember my online friend who became a real friend? Well, you can read about her here. One of the many gifts she bestowed upon me is Batiste Dry Shampoo. This darn thing works like a charm. I love it. Yes, LOVE it! 

My hair is very soft & a bit too smooth. Well ya ya, I know, lots of girls love straight, soft, smooth hair  *yawn*  But you can't style it without using any spray. I for one, don't blow dry nor use any hair spray. So this little tin of charm does wonders if I need to style my hair. Oh, I also have very oily scalp. It is mandatory to wash my hair daily, sometimes twice a day. 

I had a *cough* photo shoot today. (Shall write about this when it appears in print). I needed to ensure my hair behaves, and I wanted to style it to have some volume. So although I was so itching to wash my hair, I didn't. Instead, about an hour before the shoot, I sprayed on Batiste and voila, my hair was indeed so well behaved. 

I give this product a 10/10  :)

Ahhh... Lost touch

I used to be very diligent when it comes to being a wife. Is diligent the right word? Yeah, I suppose it is. I used to be always on top when it comes to house chores. The home is ALWAYS clean. And I mean clean for real, not just surface clean. You open any cupboard of mine, you will find everything is neatly arranged and there's no dust to be seen. Laundry is always done promptly and clothes are always ironed.

I must have slowly stopped being this way since late 2013. The worst was when I was dealing with the news. For a week I just drifted. 

Anyway, today we made a decision to begin having home cooked meals again. To have a restart on our healthy lifestyle that we had embarked upon. Healthy lifestyle doesn't just count your food, but also, your home. If the home is dusty, dirty, messy, then that isn't good for the mind & soul! The hubs has given his word that it will be a team effort. No longer just me alone doing everything. He commented today that it is our home, not mine alone. So the responsibility is with the both of us. 

So here's to a restart!

Taking care of a preschooler

Today is the second time I am baby sitting my niece, a preschooler. The first time she came, I had planned out activities for her. This time around, I didn't, thinking that it will only be half day. Well, I should have. 

She is a very hyper kid and tends to lose focus easily on anything she is doing. I wouldn't label her as ADHD. She's just hyper. In NLP, we learn how to "break state" with a child who is either throwing tantrums or just doing a cry act to get attention, and today I applied that with her. She was taken aback and instead of continuing her tantrum, she just looked at me and asked what was I doing. And she forgot totally that she was throwing a tantrum (because she refused to take her afternoon nap). 

As she is now soundly sleeping, I stealthily came out of the room, and started finishing some work for a client's CNY FB posting. I just begun to wonder, what energy parents have. I doubt I have that amount of energy in me. Or probably the energy will come along just as when you become a parent. But still, I just can't help but wonder. 

To all parents out there, wow, hats off to you!
