There are no catch from the title, they are exactly 3 things I want to talk about in this post. Circus, social media, and good news!
Bandi and I went to watch Totem by Cirque du Soleil last Friday and it was amazing!!! I seriously couldn’t express how amazing it was in words! They took insanity to another level! Just as I thought it was crazy enough, BOOM! They did another unthinkable show. Just watch it if you have a chance or if they ever come to your city!
You’ve probably heard about Essena O’Neill, a girl (model?) who quits instagram because she lost the meaning of real life. Oooh… sounds pretty serious huh?
By the way I wrote the sentence you would understand my side of this quitting instagram crap. Yeah, I found her move to be a bit hypocrite. She quit instagram, blamed social media for making her doing what she didn’t want to do.
Geez, to cut my preach shot. Let me give you the same situation of her excuses:
- A teenager blames sex (without protection) for getting pregnant.
- A person blames the candle for burning her house.
- A police office blames his gun for shooting the wrong person.
It’s NOT THE TOOL, people!!! It’s ALWAYS THE PERSON.
Hey Essena, It’s not instagram, IT’S YOU.
It’s not instagram who lies, it’s you who are the LIAR.
It’s not nuclear or gunfire who created war, it’s the fucking politicians.
I know it’s easier to blame the tool instead of sitting down, thinking what went wrong with me and admit it to the world that you did something wrong and you will fix it.
You know why people say facebook is bad? Because people can’t stop comparing themselves with other people when they read the newsfeed.
Oh… my high school friend just got her new BMW car. Why couldn’t I get BMW?
Oh… even the ugliest person I know is having a boyfriend. Why am I single?
Oh… This guy went on another holiday again? I didn’t even go anywhere this year. I don’t have anything to post, nothing to show off!
And there you go, BAM! You become depressed when you were actually perfectly fine, single and happy.
It’s not the facebook, not the instagram, not the tool that you should blame! It’s YOURSELVES, people! Yes, you can blame instagram if that will make you feel better (temporarily) but we know it won’t solve your problem.
In this very very vague yet transparent life, I know it’s not easy to be true to yourself, to be authentic, but try your best to be honest. Honesty is like a jewel now and be that jewel. :)
You will never be happy being somebody that you’re not. Be the real you, even though the real you is narcissistic and vain, just admit it… at least you’re being honest.
We all love to see ourselves in the mirror and adore ourselves, what’s wrong with that? It gives us happiness, confidence. As long as we’re not trashing people down, who cares about being vain?
You can be whoever you want, as long as it’s not fake.
Now you know I’m pro social media. Of course I’m pro! What’s not to like? You gotta be kay-poh on other people’s life leeeh! Xp You can stalk Cristiano Ronaldo’s instragram or your ex-boyfriend’s facebook. LOL.
I have a good news I couldn’t wait to tell you guys!!! I’ve held it for so many months now I will officially announce that…
Bandi and I are…
finally official resident of Singapore!
We’ve been waiting for the verdict for a year and last September it was finally approved. :)
It’s been five years since I moved to Singapore for good. It’s been one hell of amazing ride, looking forward for many more of amazing things happen in this life. =)
Now, I’m sharing one of my favorite quote that always gets me excited about life:
May, always excited.
