"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.

Conversation: Mental Health and Self-care

We had a conversation in the car. 
About mental health in workplace. 
It was a very sensitive topic to me since I was diagnosed with bipolar disorder. Having bipolar means the depression is worst. The period is longer. Then BAMMMMMM mood swings, anger, eating disorder, grieve, anxiety came along. 

But we were talking about it because I was a high-functioning person with bipolar disorder. I didn't get medication for more than two months now, and believe me, everyday that pass by is just me throwing my body to the wall and breaks like a piece of ceramic and pick myself back again with bare hands. It's hard. 
I didn't get medication, I didn't get counselling, I didn't get psychotheraphy. I was struggling to do self-care, I was struggling to sleep or wake up. It was a battle everyday, and to think about it, I just started a career. I was marching in a battleground every morning. 
Mental health in workplace has been recently a raised topic in Malaysia, since there is s…

My Daily Skincare Routine

Invest in your skin. It is going to represent you for a very long time – Linden Tyler.
I believe in good skin care, makes you least need you make up and you can even have a better, brighter canvas to put on. Having a healthy skin also shows you're healthy and well-hydrated, so yes, drinking water is important. I usually put on 2L of water inside me, forcefully. It makes me visit the toilet often, but seeing my skin glow is just another set of happiness!
I just learned to take care of my skin because when I apply make up, my dry skin looks so flaky and tired. I have to spent more time to look better. I have oily-dry combination skin, which the T-zone is oily, but my sides and cheeks are dry. And very very dry. Drinking water helps me, but I need more than that. 
So every morning, I woke up with a cup of water. Usually ice-cold water. I am not a fan of hot drinks. 
And I wash my face with Garnier Pure Active Matcha Detox Pollution & Oil Deep Clean Facial Foam. It feels so rich …

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…
