5 things to bitch about

Hey-ho! I’m back and ready for bitching!!!

Disclaimer: Not for those who are overly sensitive about everything.

I’ve been in a sour mood these couple of days because of my bloated tummy, which is my own fault because I’ve been snacking too much Pringles and eat no fruit at all. Guess the PMS is attacking.

Anyhow, I don’t have any moral-of-the-story kind of post to write about, so I will be writing what I’m really good at: bitching. Haha!

Long time ago, someone told me that my blog had so many positive posts and had inspired him, which flattered me of course. It is true that I mostly write about dare to dream, being positive and believe on things. I am a positive person, I know that. But if you know me in a real life, you would probably realize this: I bitch A LOT.

As much as I want to keep my bitching in the real life only and filter my output on my blog to be mostly positive (because I like to re-read my posts over and over again and love to see the positive posts) sometimes I couldn’t help to bitch out. It turns out my post of bitching about marriage hit my personal record of daily hit. The hit is doubled up from the usual hit. Guess people love to see some dirt.

So I told myself, it’s okay for you to bitch out once in a while. It’s nice to bitch out and be heard. If people get offended, then it’s their problem.

Owkaayy, enough for the prologue. In this post, I will talk about the top five things that I found useless and wasting money and time. Some of you might not agree, but again, that’s your problem. I’m not looking for a validation, I’m just bitching. X-p

Buying branded bags

Seriously, I don’t know why people would buy a bag for a freaking $3,000?!!! I’ve been trying to put a sense into that but seriously, the more I think about it, the more confused I get. I tried once to talk to my friends who love to buy branded bags and they said when women get older, they’ll want it. Branded bags are like wisdom, you’ll get it when you’re matured enough. (What? Really?)

I think I’ve grown enough to call myself woman, and still I don’t want that, even the cheaper version like LV. Let me get this straight first: In Singapore, it is very common for a man to buy his date an LV bag. The cost of LV bag is about S$1,200 which should only cost about 20-25% or a man’s monthly salary. It’s like a society validation to prove that you are capable to feed your woman. (Or implicitly telling that you have money to shower a girl with gifts.)

It is pretty common for a guy to buy his lady an LV bag (or Chanel or Prada if he’s richer) on A FIRST DATE. It shows that he wants to be serious in a relationship. Ohhh… What a messed up world we live in.

When Bandi and I were hanging out with my friends who talk about branded bags, one of my friend’s boyfriend asked Bandi “Have you prepared to buy May a bag?” and Bandi was laughing, “She’s not into bag.” Then the girls stared at me in disbelief, “No waaaay!!! Maybe you just haven’t found the right bag!”

No Ladies, I have found mine. This Mango Bag I’ve been using for the last 2 years costed only $60. You want to talk about quality? I wear this bag every single day for the last 2 years to work! How’s that for a $60 quality?? Geez!

It’s not like I’m very stingy to spend time for my looks. I’m still a girl who loves to shop. But buying a $3,000 bag is just….. Arrgh, I can’t find the right word for it. Let me know if you find one.

And and and… there’s this ‘tradition’ in Singapore that the man will be the one who brings his lady’s bag.

What’s the point of having a branded bag if you ask your boyfriend holding it??? And men, if you’re holding your girlfriend’s bag, you’re a pussy!!!

Rhoma Irama running for President.

He’s running for president. It’s literally running for the position of president of Indonesia. Literally. Oh how I wish it meant running towards the president. OH!!!!

He’s REALLY thinking about running for president. REALLY.

What, wait, REALLY??? REALLY????

really

Do you really want me to start bitching about it? Do you??? DO YOU?!!!

(Let’s just pretend I never talk about Rhoma Irama on my blog.)

Okay… NEXT!

Going abroad with tour

I know a lot of people doing this but this really doesn’t make sense to me. Why people are using some touristy Tour Agent’s itinerary and just sit back and relax on the tour bus, when planning a trip is a fun part of the traveling itself? And remember, it’s not an adventure unless you’re lost somewhere.

It’s not like I’m a travel agent-virgin. I do go on a day tour like Phi-Phi Island Tour or Halong Bay Tour because apparently that’s the only way to go. I also will give excuse if you on tour with your parents because some parents don’t like adventure and they just want to go jalan-jalan on a tour. But seriously, I don’t understand why young people want to go on a travel agent’s tour such as “8 magical day in Korea” or “15 amazing days in Australia”. Geez, what’s so magical and amazing about sitting on a bus with people talking about a foreign culture on your own laguage?!

Isn’t traveling worth more than just taking pictures of yourself and a landmark? It’s supposed to be meeting local people, eating local food, get lost in a foreign city and find your way back and learn something new.

Traveling is the only thing you buy that makes you richer.

Remember that. =)

If the old folks who didn’t have internet back then could go abroad without a tour, then your excuse of “I don’t know anything about the country” should just go to hell.

People watching “Keeping up with The Kardashians”

Enough said.

Pre-wedding photo

Until now, I don’t understand what’s the purpose of pre-wedding photo? Please please tell me what the purpose is. If it’s simply for fun, then it’s an expensive useless fun. I don’t understand why can’t we just use the photos from holiday or possible one-time indoor studio for a header photo of your wedding? Should we really pay so much money for taking photos on our wedding gown, pretend to melancholy glare to some sunset further away?

Don’t be offended. It’s individual preference to do pre-wedding photoshot. Some of my close friends do that and I still say this in front of their faces, “For me it’s useless.” But hey, everyone is different, if you wanted to do it then do it, regardless how mean I might bitch about it.

Isn’t pre-wedding photoshot expensive? And Why do most people choose pre-wed photos over a honeymoon?! Why why whhhyyyy???

I really don’t get it why people do that… whhhhyyyy? Why don’t you just use the pictures you already had when you were two dating? Why do you need to spend extra money just for a pre-wed photos? I reaaaally don’t understand.

I will give an excuse if it’s free. But paying for pre-wed photos? Who would do that???

Well, I never plan any wedding, maybe I don’t know shit about how wedding should be. Maybe it is supposed to be with pre-wed photos. But, aren’t wedding supposed to be whatever you want to?

But again, if you want to spend money for pre-wed photos, it’s your call. It’s your money anyway. I hope it’ll be well spent. (NOT)

Ahhhh, what am I talking about? I never had a branded bag, never met Rhoma Irama in person, never went on a tour trip, never watched “Keeping up with the Kardashians” and never planned a wedding. What do I know, right??

So yeah, now my blog is not so inspirational anymore, huh, Keven? Hahaha.

Cheers,

May, bitching out online.
