Judging Went Wrong

Allamanda Putrajaya’s washroom is filled in seconds after the movie ended. Girls fixing their make-up, some fixed their clothes (which somehow moves while sitting static on a chair, but that is none of my business).

I’m fixing my lipstick on the mirror. A woman with her daughter waited nearby. I guess they are waiting for turns to use the toilet, until suddenly the daughter asked.

“Mak, why does that women doesn’t wear tudung?”

I guess I’m in shock, but tries to hide my inner battle in my head. What shook me more is the answer from the mother:

“Only women who are not afraid of God, doesn’t listen to what Him who doesn’t wear tudung. Men doesn’t like women who doesn’t wear tudung. Don’t be like her.”

I walked and smiled at the mother.

“Well, I would be shocked if I met you in hell later. See ya!”

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 Bipolar Diary II: Prescription for Dummies (Part 2)

Yikes, I started this post with statistics which I myself is unhappy with. Living with bipolar disorder is not an easy thing /tsk
I found an article who writes about the struggle of treating bipolar disorder. Full article here, but I'll just pick the thing that matters:
"The problem with treating bipolar is that the only two choices of medications you can take are mood stabilizers and anti-psychotics. Also, when you experience bipolar, chances are that’s not your only problem. I also had to be on anti-anxiety medication and a sleep aid. And you have to find the perfect combination with the least amount of interactions. Some drugs can’t be mixed together."
I was given Olanzapine as my first prescription, together with Epilim. According to Drugs.com, Olanzapine is used for treating schizophrenia. It may also be used for other conditions as determined by your doctor.


Olanzapine is an atypical antipsychotic. Exactly how it works is not known. It is thought to affect certain…

Book Review: Seronok by Saat Omar (Buku FIXI)

(I believe what is more catchy is the book cover!)
Thanks to CAIS UNIMAS, I finally can read this book.
The theme of the story is about homosexual -- Amirul is falling for Bakar. For me, I've been looking for this type of story in Malaysian literature, too bad I started with this one (after all I always loved Fixi books).
I am studying on transgender and their 'relatives' and being homophobic at the same time. Trying to understand why people don't accept them. I actually accepts them, but not allowing them continue being one. Because? It is wrong of course.
However, nice story line, the composition and the maximum usage of the characters, I love them. Especially Amirul because he actually told everyone he is a gay, but not to his mother (how ironic!)
And few critics on arts and films, it blends well and towards the ending ----- a gay can actually change to a normal guy. Why? Because woman belong to man, and so vice versa.
