Does that title give you a picture that I'm now on an island enjoying my vacation and torturing Jolenesiah? Hahaha. Yes I am.
True Revelation of Horror

If you Malaysians have read today's the Star second section, I'm sure you must be awed with the sight of the big reef fish swimming on the page. It looked so fake isn't it? And you might even say out loud "Wow .. that fish do exist?!" Oh yes.. weird flora and fauna do exist and you know zoologists and its gung ho are always discovering new species in each exploration but unfortunately the extinction of these species is much faster than they be found. What an unparallel level playing field of hide and seek.
I feel extremely sad to read "locally extinct" in the article because I could not and don't want to believe that there is an animal species, in this case humphead wrasse, is extinct in Malaysia. It's a nightmare to me. What worsen the nightmare is the amount of quota of humphead wrasse in Sabah. It was recorded that a large amount of 45 600 tails were exported solely from Malaysia, a number that is five times the quota of Indonesia. Rewind and read it back again. I was utterly horrified.
The marine scientist, Oaklely, clearly stated "Malaysia needs to realise that tourists bring in more money than selling the last few humpheads would.” And I absolutely agreed to it but infortunately several Malaysian businessmen are blinded by the short term greed. And I find it sheer stupidity in lacking of investment and wealth preservation and conservation knowledge. The simple logic is best described this way: the more farm land you have, the more produce you will have and the more money you make from the produce, and this could last for several generations. And why our stupid businessmen can't comprehend this simple logic? This is simply ignorant and arrogant. Look what have they done now... the stocks are now dwindling so is your money. And there's no such thing as 'there's always more somewhere.' I just don't want to see the tragedy of Lake Victoria in African happening in Malaysia because I won't be able to absorb that shock.
For layman, if you don't know anything about environment, just remember one thing: natural resources are NEVER infinity even if they are like water they have now degraded to the status of finite due to the way we consume them. Don't get what I mean? Try doing some homework and you will get what I mean. And please tell yourself that BECAUSE OF THE WAY I LIVE I'M SHORTENING ANOTHER PERSON'S LIFESPAN so please think twice before using a natural resource like plastic. If you don't, I will make sure I will hunt you down and your generations in my spirit form.
For green people [not X-Files "green" people], please keep up the good work. And can you please consider of going vegan/ vegetarian for a day or two in a week or even permanent?
For businessmen, please use your bloody brain to think of a way to preserve your wealth; preserving your wealth = conserving natural resources = increasing wealth. If this penniless blogger could notice it, why not you? Unless you are telling me that you old people got no wisdom at all... if so, don't you dare to tell me how to run my business just because you make more money than me.
For someone who is much higher ranking than me in society and politics... I hope you could come to the realization that tourism is one of Malaysia's biggest earner ... so if you don't intervene in this matter, please then stop promoting Malaysia as a hot diving spot or tourism as a whole. If not... you are just *beeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeep*.
I'm pretty sick and disgusted by the way of some Malaysians doing business. I can't wait for the moment to be rich so I could buy my own land and sea to conserve the environment. So if you want to help with my cause, please help me by doing investment with me. HAHAHA.
P.S: I forgotten to tell you what horrified me the most was I have eaten this fish before in a restaurant near my home but I'm extremely innocent for my sister and I questioned if the fish is endangered or not and the boss said not. I was clearly cheated!!! Oh by the way, the fish was yummy.
The KIss of Doubt

I attended a free CPR course today. It was crowded with over 200 people. I waited for less than one hour for my turn. Apparently a minister came to the course as a visitor but it seems we were all oblivious because we were just tired waiting for our turn. I thought the NGO will limit to 200 people but it went over to 300.
But the course was fun.
There were 100 of us in the room and divided into a team of 4 members with an instructor. We saw the demonstration twice before we performed on our own. My team consisted of 2 men and 2 women. We were excited about doing it ourself and some of us happened to do it faster than the main instructor's step by step instructions. And there was this auntie [Asian way of referring to the female elderly] in my team insisted me to start first and so I did. When the instructor was giving instructions, she kept on asking me to go to the chest and resuscitate and I was like 'What The Hell?!' because that was step 5. The guy beside me was so damn excited and has begun pumping the chest. And the group instructor has already asking me to work on the chest and I was just astounded because I haven't even done step 3! And so the main instructor realised that we were all not following her instructions she instructed us to do all over again. I was elated. And that's where I also got annoyed. When we were going to step 5 where we are going to pump the chest, this auntie kept on telling me how to do it: showing me how I should position my fingers and such and then I just snapped "CAN YOU JUST LET ME DO IT MYSELF." Then she left me alone.
But overall it was a good course because it's free!! The course itself cost RM 130 and I got it for free!!! So happy!! And now i got a certificate of attendance for this course. Woohoo.

I came back home whining at my mum about how young girls nowadays dressed. GOD... the way they dressed is so hideous that my heart is screaming CRISIS silently. Those young girls were trying to imitate the Japanese fashion but they failed miserably in making themselves look GREAT and COOL in those fashion apparels. I cringed at the sight of them and even more at the retail shops. Those outfits were not even like or even similar to the Japanese style. And unfortunately these are the fashion that many people think it's YOUNG. People who dressed like me - Smart , Elegant, Presentable [because I'm working] - is considered as old and outdated. So girls wearing those skimpy clothes or some of us called them the 'la la mui' [don't know how to interpret but it refers to girls that like matching clothes oddly and I called FASHION CRISIS] are considered YOUNG and REFRESHING? Unfortunately yes. Many guys have even asked me to change my outfits.
I really need to WASH MY EYES. I came back flipping through my Lolita fashion handbook and realised the ones in the book are AWEFULLY much better. And I don't think myself as ABNORMAL but higher and better taste in fashion.
Yea yea... go ahead and bash me up. I don't mind that. And don't puke over the word ELEGANT. Wearing conservatively or nice covering up risque doesn't mean OLD or OUTDATED. Don't be a jerk, people.
And one more thing to the guys. If you think your girl n friends dressed so OLD and OUTDATED, have you thought of your own dressing? Are your dressing COOL and WOW? You think so? I don't. If you want to bash your girlfriends dressing, then you guys should stop wearing T-shirts with jeans. Dress something more COOL and HANDSOME. Be more stylish. And don't give me the damn that it's not the in guy's blood to dress that way. If so, who the hell say girls have to be that way too? Stop discriminating girls by their dressing. Guys should also admit that some of you have FASHION CRISIS. Are you aware that passer-by criticize couple's dressing too? If the girl dress so beautiful and the guy dress so UGLY in jeans, t-shirt and sandals, passer-by will also whisper to each other about the dressing?
People, use your brain to think for awhile. Do you actually even get my point? My point is RESPECT INDIVIDUALITY. You cannot have someone to dress or be like you or even ask the person to dress to what you like. Worse of all, your girlfriends are not your special girlfriends, what right you have to tell them what to wear? What right you have to impose a dress code on them? Do you like them because the way they dress or because of who they are? As long the person dresses appropriately for the event, it's OK. It's not like I'm wearing red for a funeral. You can tell the girls and guys to dress better but not degrading them from their current fashion status. And one more thing to ask yourself especially guys ... IS MY FASHION TASTE MUCH BETTER THAN HER/HIM? Even if you think yes, pass the message tactfully like 'Oh I think if you dress in this and this would look good on you' not "God, you are so UGLY." Because for a girl [no matter how pretty and ugly she is], fashion and appearance is highly important to her. Just imagine a girl telling a guy 'You got erectile dysfunction.' What is your response?
I need CPR. No really, I got a CPR training in 7 hours.
All comments, bashing, hate mails and such are welcome.

I suddenly recalled a video about vegetables when I was thinking of a scene for my scriptwriting at Script Frenzy.
Happy watching it.
