"Oppression Doesn't Exist!"

Oppression is silenced once you gave some comfort to the oppressed. This is how the country runs, not only because it's patriarchal. You were given RM400 aid per year, and you are satisfied. While you know it's still not enough, but still vote for the party. The oppressed still gets less fortunate, still have to work their ass off for two square meals, sometimes one. Oppression still happens.

But the nature of Asian values, in specific is conformist. They are easily satisfied by some incentives. While they don't really last. Being silenced for your rights is the best example. Check your human rights, do you get them all? If not, you can go check the Universal Declaration of Human Rights 1945 and get yourself verified because that's what you need to get.

When you say there's no oppression in the world I expect there is no more poverty. But then, those TV shows Bersamamu, shows poor people?

Oppression does not end once you give incentives and money for the oppressed. Oppression ends when those people gets what they should get. I'm sick of people telling that: I've given this and that, where's the oppression? You can't see oppression because YOU ARE PRIVILEGED.

Just because you can have three meals everyday doesn't mean you are lucky. You are privileged. Lucky are people who can eat once a day.

People doesn't get what they deserve. Equal pay for their over time work. Safety. Education opportunities. Basic needs. Do you realise that?

"When you are privileged, rights feel like burden to you." That explains why you feel extra safety caution for woman is nonsense. Ladies parking, or anything that woman have special space for themselves is to avoid harrasment and rape. You shouldn't be there. Because apparently, covering up wasn't enough to save those woman from your lust. Then they are kept away from your lust. Prevention steps has been taken. Safety measures are done too. But still crime happens because human have lust.

I just want to say that being oppressed is more than giving incentives and comfort. It is justice, then comes after justice is equality.

15 Lessons Learnt in Life

It's second half of the year and I'm half way through my life as 22 year old woman who still trip and make mistakes, stumbles here and there, try to make life worth living, somehow.
I did this game on Twitter, 1 like = 1 lesson learnt in life. So I decided to take it here and document all my thoughts on life, because every single thing I've learned so far is an advice to future me. 

1. Everything is temporary. People, attention, position, affection. Nothing stays forever and I've lost enough in life.
I've lost a lot of friends and enemies through time of my life. I get discouraged when people left my life, for whatever reason they did. I tend to blame myself, thinking where did I went wrong, until I came to my realization that nothing lasts forever. I raised myself to not depends to anyone anymore and be a new me - an individualistic person who values myself over everything else.
2. People have different opinions. But opinions can be molded with bigotry, racism an…

My Bipolar Diary VI: New Antidepressants

I haven't written quiet awhile about my bipolar journey - I think my depression really gets me drowned into a dark pit. I have been in low moods, low appettite, constant anxiety for a month and more now - reason why I stopped blooging my experience.
To a lot of people, opening up about mental health condition isn't an easy thing, especially to people that you love, solely because you don't want to burden them with your "small" issues. I always think that my problem is small, crying, whining, frustration, blankness as something that I shouldn't talk with anyone, just because other people had it worst than me, but they managed it well.
But I came across one article the other day telling me - everyone have their own limit and capacity of managing stress. Yours is smaller, but that's okay. You will thrive and get through it by time. Time will heal, of course.
So I went for my last appointment with my psychiatrist today - and I got prescribed with an antidepr…

Buku Tebal Challenge by @BookendsMY

Everyone who knows me know that I am a bibliophile - and I'm targetting myself to read 60 books this year (Follow my 2017 Reading Challenge on Goodreads!)
So on July, a reading community called BookendsMY had organised Buku Tebal Challenge, where we got to read a book, over 500 pages, and post our reviews about the book in any platform. I always loved Goodreads because it allows writer to read comments about their books and interact with them, too.
Follow me on Goodreads!
So my pick for the Buku Tebal Challenge was American Gods by Neil Gaiman.


Check out what I say about Gaiman's American Gods:

Phew. It was a roller coaster ride for two days I spent on this book, ignoring everything that happened in this world just for Shadow's adventure.

I can't find anything that I hate about this book, truly a read that brings the meaning of belief and religion and emotional attachment and detachment, value of life and death to a person, and to believe that something has bigger powe…
