Time 2011 100 Influential People

Ever imagined being one of the 100 influential people in the world? To be truth, I do. Although it sounded more like desperation for fame, I have my own reason for wanting to be the 'it' person. I haven't figured out the cause for me being the top 100, but what catches my attention the most is the listing of one of the Glee stars in the chart. Does Chris Colfer or KURT HUMMEL ring any bells to you? Him, of all other person is one of the 100 influential people listed in Time 2011. I guess his daring character as a homo in the series really captures people's attention. Not to be pessimist, but there is a rumor going around that the creator of the series himself, Ryan Murphy is a homo, which explains the focus of the series - Homo and all that revolves in it. Well, despite of the issue, I am so in love with the series. It somehow made my week! Loves the numbers, the issues dealt in every episodes...well, what's not to love, ay!! To be truthful, if I am not doing what I am doing at the moment, I would rather go and try to get myself a character in the series. Haha. Sounds crazy, right!

How my future look like?

Have you ever thought of how your future are going to look like? Or shall I say, "Be like"? Ever since I was young, I always dreams of what will happened to me in the future. This habit still continuing on and the following are the list of how I see myself in the future:

1)Obviously, after I finished my study, I will be serving the Government as an English teacher in TBA government primary school. Hopefully, I will be able to survive in wherever school I will be posted to.

2)And if there is a slight chance that I can continue my studies in-between the years, I would go for any local universities for master level or perhaps postpone the learning until I got any good offers to continue it overseas! UK will be the top in the list, for sure!!

3)Right after I am done with the contract, I am so glad to take a year off to travel around Europe. Hopefully, my mother will give her permission on this one! Capture tons of shots and bring back as many snow globes and tea towels as possible.

4)Then after I am all settle down and good to go, I will consider teaching in either higher education or as primary English teacher still! And during the night, I will just take few hours to teach English at self or any tuition center.

5)I am more than excited to have my own coffee shop. Decorated with nice themes and service. I am thinking of something global yet still cater to the locals' and tourists' buds.

6)Learn Mandarin and Japanese language for sure. Not for survival purposes, but for living skill instead.

7)I have to admit that I am such a blonde (*expression used for not really a knowledgeable person). So I gotta digest and get my geography and history correct. A must do thing!!!

8)Talking about being knowledgeable, ever since I was a child I always have this thing of being as TV host. Say.....8TV Quickie, Oprah Winfrey Show and etc. Well, many people are aware how I idolized Ally Iskandar for who he is (Malaysian top TV host).

9)And yes....I would be more than happy to own a mini cooper!

10)Since studying overseas has prepared me as a mini Malaysian ambassador, I would love to be a real one if I could.

11)Come out with my own books. The genres are still TBA.

12)And the last but not least, attending to as much as families and friends' weddings. I would love to be the best man if they ever asked!!

Sounds pathetic? I guess, REALISTIC is the only way to describe these future forecast! Still whatever happens, I do need supports from my family and friends. And when I say that, I mean YOU!!!!!!!

Is fairytales to be blame for all the misbehaves?

I found a very interesting shoutout earlier today on kids-dom (childrens' kingdom). The shout out is as the following:
How do you expect kids to listen to their parents as, Tarzan lives half naked, Cinderella comes back home at midnight, Pinocchio lies all the time, Alladin is the king of thieves, Bataman drives at 320km/hour, Sleeping Beauty is lazy and Snow White lives with 7 dwarfs. We shouldn't be surprised if kids mibehave like that today! They get this from their own storybooks.

Personally, I do think that there is a truth on this quotation however, I do believe that children do not live in these fantasy until they grow up! What affected their misbehaviours the most is the peer pressure. Meanwhile, peer pressure has fully access to the biggest reference of all times which is the media. How can you not try to have drama when your favourite reality show is "Jersey Shore". Frankly speaking I have no grudge against Snooki but I don't really like the show and how it might affected the youngsters. Basically what I am trying to say is that, short stories are meant for literacy and fun when we're young but what we exposed to the most during the puberty stage is what determines how we are going to grow up into. My point here might be vague but I strongly think that "You are not what you are" but more towards "You are what you are shaped to be like".


Well someting strucked me and it made me think of the truth of people's saying on "getting wiser as we grow older". Obviously, I have my doubt of this saying considering what I have seen towards my entire life. This saying may be applicable for some, but not for the other. Seriouosly, how can you prove your maturity if you can't even think straight of your doing and how it affect other people around you. Is that how you value your increasing candles on your birthday cake? Does it ever occur to you how others might feel about your action? Do you think they ever feel happy about it? Sometimes those affected people forced their hardest to carve a smile for you and make you think "Everything is okay!".The truth is, it is very challenging to be the child whose shoulders being rested with all the hopes and dreams of making the family worth something. Well as people say, "No pressure but pleasure".

Easter break!

Ok guys and girls, I know that the holiday is almost ended so let us just recapulate what I've done during the last 2 weeks of break. I guess let us just start with the disasters happened along the trip before moving on to the best parts of the trip:

Meet the disasters:

1) Me and Junid had to go first since the other two had to postpone their trip due to class.
2) Me and Junid had to change flight since we missed the booked flight to Christchurch. Since the ticket bought earlier was the cheapest one ($19), we were considered as forfeiting the tickets and had to buy another one without the promoton, which means another additional of $118.
3)There was a slight misunderstanding and complication of the car we rented online which lead us to drop off the car in Queenstown instead off Dunedin (the initial plan was to drive from Queenstown to Invercargill, Bluff and ended in Dunedin).
4)Due to the car drop off, we had to take another shuttle to Dunedin since our flight on the next day was in Dunedin Airport.
5)I was scolded by the Airport people for leaving my luggages unattended even though the other companions were just sitting centimetres away from the bags.

Meet the memorable ones:

1)We drove up until the southernmost part of the south island,the Slope Point. As the name is, the road there was very sloppy. Bluff is said to be the most southern part of South Island, even the difference between this two is 7km.
2)We had an eccentric fun at The Puzzling World in Wanaka.
3)Hot dip at Onsen Hot Pool. To tell you the truth, the atmosphere was sensual and steaaaaaaaaaaaaamy! Haha
4)Went hiking. And yeah that was new for me and Junid. At least it was worth it after all. We played luge for the first time and drove it as slow as the tortoise racing with the bunny. Well, safety first folks!
5) Witnessing the fabulous view of South Island, particularly Queenstown. If not for the freezing weather, I swear to be there again during the snowy season.
6)I tried jakuzi for the first time at the backpackers where I stayed in Queenstown! Wish that I could have on at home. Ahhhhhhhh, it was refreshing!
7)I made lots of friends, considering more than one is 'lots' already. Haha. They are Motto (Japanese), Amelie (Canadian), and these two Brazilian girl and Swiss guy which I forgot to ask for their names. Haha.
8)Officially a Korean now. Haha. Funny ay! That was the first time in my life people thought that I am a Korean.

I should say that the trip was awesome in a way. Somehow it leads me to think how can the travellers managed to travel long enough without feeling tired of it at all! When I asked for their age, I could say that they are all below 25 yet already independent. Travelling either by themselves or couple of friends made along the way. Awesome ay!
