You can’t have cake and eat it, too

Three weeks ago, my cousin texted me, telling me about a single brother of her friend.

Fast forward to a few hours Later, he – Let’s call him IRE – and I agreed to meet up.

Fast forward to a few more hours Later, everything had gone quite peachy, but there is one single, conspicuous physical flaw about him.

He’s an Arab.

Sorry.

I know, I know, I shouLdn’t generalize all Arab (descents) as asshoLes Like Saudi men, but stiLL..

Urgh.

Abort Mission!

The titLe of this post was quoted from my BFU when I toLd her I was to go to another mission with Subject.. Let’s just caLL him R1.

 

R1 is a notary who had worked with Mrs. Z, one of Her Mothership’s gaziLLion friends (I don’t even know if I have ever met Mrs. Z. If I had, I can’t even recaLL what she Looks Like). Mrs. Z advertised him as a highLy eLigibLe bacheLor with a steady income, but he’s extremeLy shy. HM toLd me Mrs. Z toLd her that R1 consuLted Mrs. Z for a week before he started contacting me.

The resuLt of that consuLtation?
A stream of annoying texts with various incorrect speLLings of my name and fLooding me with sad faces emojis if I didn’t text him back ASAP, a coupLe of DIY Ed Sheeran covers, and a barrage of seLfies in a poLice car.
So I siLentLy toLd him to go to heLL.
And eventuaLLy he stopped. My Life was peacefuL again.

For a few months.
UntiL Mrs. Z kindLy butted in again, urging us to meet, through Her Mothership.
SLy.

So the stream of annoying texts with various incorrect speLLings of my name and fLooding me with sad faces emojis if I didn’t text him back ASAP returned.
OnLy this time, he said “Look, I know you’re pushed to do this, so am I. Mrs. Z won’t stop buggering me about you.”
Poor him. So I agreed, just to ease our mutuaL annoyances.

On the way to The Mission, Her Mothership kept saying I have to be nice, don’t be too coLd, yada yada yada. She even asked me to ‘bring’ him to meet her.
SERIOUSLY HOW WEIRD WOULD THAT BE. I mean, we both didn’t want to do this, so if I ‘took’ him to my mother he wouLd think:
a. “Hey, maybe she likes me.” (are there any throw up emojis in WordPress?)
b. “Oh great it’s her mom now I have pressure from both sides.”
So I said NO WAY to Her Mothership, and off I went to The Mission.

The foLLowing things happened:

  • He kept repeating how annoyed he was by Mrs. Z taLking about me (seriousLy though, which one is this Mrs. Z and what does she know about me besides I’m singLe and Her Mothership is desperate to marry me off?)
  • He doesn’t know how the Food Court Table Law works.
  • He insisted to ordering food for me.
  • He doesn’t eat meat.
  • The conversation died a few times for periods far too Long to be comfortabLe. And I was trying to be nice and chatty.
  • He sLightLy pushed me to go to a sport shop, and caLLed and texted me everytime I was out of his sight.
  • After it was over and done with, Her Mothership is giving me the CoLd Shoulder treatment because.. I don’t know..? For not bringing him to meet her?

ConcLusion: Mission Aborted.

Warning: PICSPAM!
ALso, I hope I wiLL not offend anyone from any countries on this Earth. This post is a soLid proof that I’ve wasted too much times watching footages of RPGs and reading fanfictions.

I can count the years I’ve been in WordPress by Looking at the Miss Universe NationaL Costume posts in this bLog. It’s been three years. And during these three years, I’m convinced there are Lots marveLous beings existing in this universe, Like..

MythicaL creatures!

The good-spirited Barong of BaLi, Indonesia

Dlisted | Indonesia:

Um. Okay. I kind of Like this Barong-inspired costume. Not as bad as the Last three years’ costumes. The onLy hiccup was the white Leggings.

I stiLL think that Indonesia shouLd do away with these carnivaL costumes ASAP.

RoLe PLaying

Warning: PICSPAM

Surprise! A Miss Universe NationaL Costume post before the crowning! Maybe because there are some good stand outs, and surprisingLy no bad or outrageous stand outs except Canada (and one other). And whiLe perusing this year’s offerings, suddenLy a crazy idea popped up in my head (that’s why I’m not going to start by ‘anaLizing’ Indonesia’s costume Like usuaL).

IF MISS UNIVERSE WAS A ROLE PLAYING GAME, THERE WOULD BE:

Warning: PICSPAM

First, I just need to ask: WHAT THE FUCK IS WRONG WITH THIS YEAR’S MISS UNIVERSE NATIONAL COSTUME ROUND???  I mean, from aLphabet A to K, I just wanted to scratch the Leather on the armchair. ThankfuLLy, it gets somewhat better. But stiLL, I hate Indonesia’s costume even more than Last year’s costume.

What is this, a peacock Reog? I don’t think Indonesia is speciaLLy weLL-known for peacocks. Komodo dragons, yes. But jeez, whatever Foundation organizing Indonesia’s participation in Miss Universe shouLd stop empLoying those costume makers from SoLo/Jember Batik CarnivaL. Hate.

I’m quite heartbroken because Kosovo is not participating this year.. Their costumes were aLways good! But oh weLL, on with the rest of the Likes, in aLphabeticaL order.

SouL CaLibur

Even though today is Friday and tomorrow is Saturday, I’m feeLing a LittLe.. souLLess today. So I think I’LL just do something ‘Light’ and ‘quick’.. Answering Tina’s Liebster Award questions! Hee hee.

 

  1. Are there any trashy music/books/movies you like? What is it?   Eh.. If anyone think Japanese one-voLume shoujo mangas are trashy, then I’m guiLty 😀 (BUT they are quite usefuL as Japanese reading materiaLs.. You know, to keep my Japanese up.. *excuses excuses*)
  2. If you could be a character in any fictional book/movie, who would you be?   I want to be a girL who had a LittLe magic and piLot a giant robot in Hayao Miyazaki’s worLd. And I want to have an orange taLking cat who couLd transform to a giant cat-carriage and fLy to take me everywhere as a pet.
  3. Is there anything that you are currently collecting?   I’ve been coLLecting movie tickets since 1999! I have cLose to 500 movie titLes now, and I’m damn proud of them, because my other coLLections are just.. dust :p
  4. Is there anything that seems like only you like? What is it?  The coLor orange. I mean, I know some peopLe who Like the coLor, but they don’t Love it, aren’t obsessed about it as much as I do.
  5. Would you rather live in your home country or overseas? Why?  I’ve never Live overseas Longer than two weeks, so now I stiLL want to TRY to be an expat.
  6. What kind of books/movies do you gravitate to, ones that seems that have a happy ending or one that is tragic?  There was a time when I instantLy deemed books/movies that made me cry ‘good’. But sad endings kinda depress me. A LittLe optimism wiLL do much good, I think, Like The FauLt in Our Stars and Pacific Rim (yes, yes, am stiLL Loving it). Both successfuLLy tear me up – quite hard –  but made me feeL strangeLy optimist and happy in the end.
  7. Do you believe in aliens?  Anything is possibLe. Who knows? The truth is out there.
  8. In your opinion, would it be possible for people to live in space in the near future? If yes, how? Would it be on another planet, like how we live now, or would it be inside spaceships?  Yes it wouLd. I do hope it wouLd. Maybe in a coupLe hundred of years (if kingdom come is not coming in another miLLennia) humankind wouLd have been abLe to buiLd a gigantic space fortress. Then once they found a suitabLe pLanet and had finished terraforming it (and dipLomating with the indigenous race), maybe we couLd have a second Earth.
  9. Do you ever wish you were born after or before your time? Why do you feel that way and what time would you like to go to?   I DON’T want to be born after my time, speciaLLy in the 2000s. I once I reach aduLthood my eyesight wouLd be even worse than now, what with the tabs and the pads chiLdren these days keep staring at.
  10. At what time do you think should one start to live independently?  Once one enter coLLege/university, which I didn’t get to do 😦
  11. If you could have one super power, what would it be?  The power to start proper kind of conversations at any given situations so I wouLdn’t have more awkward siLent moments.

Second: 2013 Oscars Red Carpet

First of aLL, I don’t reaLLy remember what’s behind the word First in the GoLden GLobe red carpet post. But just to keep things tidy, this post wiLL have to bear the word Second in the titLe.

So, is it just me or the dresses paraded on 2013 Oscar red carpet were a bit.. unexciting? Sure, I Like a few, Like:

Kerry Washington’s Miu Miu

First: GoLden GLobe 2013 red carpet favorites

So I know GoLden GLobe’s today, and I’m curious about how Tina Fey & Amy PoehLer wiLL rock the party and if Argo or LincoLn wiLL win big (which shouLdn’t reaLLy matter to me, reaLLy, as I possibLy wouLdn’t have any chance to see both..but stiLL).

But it wasn’t after a friend tweeted me and suggested I check out Marion CotiLLard’s dress because she thought I’d Love it that I remembered: “Oh shit I have to do the usuaL red carpet post! And I have no internet at the office #@&$$*!!”

But ta-da, Lo and behoLd, my favorites red carpet Looks from the GoLden GLobe 2013.
