Have I?

Filed under: personal, rants & raves — Tags: — almostladies @ 4:15 am

Changed I mean.

I mean, I don’t see much changes in me.
Well, I am much more me now.
Still nice, but much more of a bitch in a nice way ofc!

Mmm.
After 4 years,  I still have the same friends.
I cant possibly have changed much?
Well, my girls have grown 😀
This better not jinx it!

Been meeting people, mingling and running around the place trying to get rid of excess energy.
And stuffing my face with food! 😀

But I am here to fulfill my side of the deal.

10 things to fulfill before I die

1. Go to Italy/Europe/travel the world with heaps of spending money.
2.  Actually do some charity work/help the needy for a few years.
3. Learn about God again.
4. Own a nice house/apartment with a killer view and large deck/balcony.
5.  Have someone to grow old with (because marriage scares the hell out of me!)
6. Do something I love as a career.
7.  Be able to look back on life at any point and not have any regrets.
8. To be able to always go with my impulses.
9. Be happy and contented even if life is not pleasant.
10. Dance as much as I can, eat as much as possible, love like tomorrow’s the end and not bother with people who doesn’t matter.

I change my mind

Filed under: rants & raves — Tags: — almostladies @ 1:32 pm

Everyone changes right?
After 1 year, 1 month, 1 week, 1 day, 1 min, 1 sec.

Okay, I’m being melodramatic again, as usual.

But hey, I remember all the lists I’ve done on this blog and I look back
and I think to myself  – why on earth did I ever say that?
Or think that? Or believe that? Or say/write that?

I think I was stupid. Foolish. Immature. Naive.

Am I really that much smarter now?
Well, I hope so.

But this blog is a wonderful place.
Because I can look back and see how much I’ve progressed.

I wish to be a wiser person, after all.

Anyway, here goes.. my love for making lists is coming back to haunt me again (now that is one thing that hasn’t changed!)

10 things I’d love to do/have before I die:

1. Go on a luxury cruise
2. Get married
3. Buy a house/apartment 
4. Learn how to drive
5. Play the piano again
6. Read the bible from cover to cover
7. Visit Japan
8. Own a mac computer
9. Receive a tiffany’s ring
10. Raise a Yorkie puppy

That’s all.

It’s been a while, hasn’t it?

Filed under: personal, rants & raves — Tags: — almostladies @ 3:31 pm

Little Ms Perfect has been dead busy with life.
I don’t even have time to do cool stuff anymore.

I’ve left the country.
Left my beloved friends, family, bestie, boyfriend.

Now I’m older.
With a real job.
Paying bills.
Making plans.
And also, slightly more lady-like.

AHEM!

Anyways, we need a new theme, love.

What say you? 

10 things to do before I die?

d:

Speaking of which, I should reply bestie’s previous post – well, I don’t have 10 things; but 5 will do for now! (:

10 significant things that happened in 2009

1. I graduated from university.
2. I moved out of home.
3. I travelled alone.
4. I found a banking job.
5. I didn’t cry in 6 months.

The kinds that should just go poof!

Filed under: personal, rants & raves — Tags: — almostladies @ 1:53 pm

I’m back! Bigger and better (literally =.=). It took me a considerable amount of time to fulfill my part of the deal but the time has finally come for me to!

The kinds of humans that I would rather not interact with.

Look, we are not being mean here; we just have out preferences. We are still very nice people; if you are nice that is!

And without further ado; here’s my list!

1. People with no substance – Hey. I’m cool with you having so substance, just don’t butt into conversations that you have no idea about. Just don’t. I’m saving you from any embarrassment on your part and time wasting on mine. Go gain a lil substance before you play with the grown ups, yea? 🙂

2. Brand Whore’s – All good if you can afford it! I’ll even look on with much envy! But what I cannot take are people who are obviously big big brand whores but says that they are not (cause they cant afford it etc). I know my brands; I know what I like and what I don’t like. I can tell fakes from real; some anyway. Condemn me for having all these knowledge but not being able to afford any but I’ll wear my $20 bag proudly and it might just look better than your 2k one (Let’s not kid ourselves; some out there ought to be burned!)

3. Stupid people (!!!!) – Oh my this is a huge one for me. I’m not talking about being book smart. I have had my stupid moments; quite a lot actually! But what I’m talking about is those people who are just so stupid! People who does things for the benefit of now; people who are ignorant to the obvious; people who plays with sparks, creates a fire and whines about it. I expect people who are around me (give or take 4 years) to at least have some common sense but it has been proven (again and again) that stupid people are abundant.

4. Fake people – I admit, I can be super fake sometimes. I have heaps of alter ego’s that needs to be unleashed! But that is not what I am talking about. I am talking about people who are trying to fake what they are not. Those who are trying to be someone else but is failing miserably. You cant make a leopard change its spots! If you don’t have it in you to fake it; don’t. It painful to watch.

5. Arrogant people – This includes people who thinks that they rule the world, older generations who demands respect (and for that you get none for me), people who goes around flaunting what they have and people who are up themselves. URGH go away!

6. Selfish people – Enough said!

7. Backstabbers – If you have any sort of problem with me, grow some balls and confront me. Don’t go around spreading stuff about me which has no basis whatsoever. That’s dirty child’s play and honestly, I expected you to grow out of it already.

8. Guys who are being pussy-whipped – Oh c’mon!

9. Weak people -Mentally. So what if you’ve been rejected? Grow some balls, you’re not a kid anymore! Don’t effing whine about it!

10. Unreasonable people – YUCK YUCK YUCK.

11. Players – I’m talking about those who are in a relationship already but still check girls out, obviously. Looking is fine talking about how she has a nice arse is fine too but dont oogle. And dont hit on chicks as well! Dont be dirty. You’re in a relationship; if you think she is not good enough, move on properly. Karma’s a bitch. This applies to girls too.

And this is the end of my long list; granted not all are listed but this is enough! 😀

Tell Me: Do you stereotype people?

Filed under: personal, rants & raves — Tags: — almostladies @ 10:25 am

Okay, so it’s been a while since either of us has bothered to blog on here. But I won’t tell you why because it’s none of your business, really.

ha ha, just jokes.

Well, the truth is.. Bestie has been to busy with uni work and as for me, well, I’m moving (sort of). Moving countries, that is. Going away in search of greener pastures on the other side of the fence, type thing. I’ll talk more about it some other time though because today, I want to fulfil my side of the bargain since it’s my turn to come up with a fresh new topic to blog about this time around!

Today, I want to talk about the types of people I dislike!
I stereotype people alot. Yes! I’m one of those evil people who classify people into categories. I have favourites and the opposite of favourites. I don’t think I should use the word “hate” because it may be a tad too strong.

Anyway, enough of my babbling.. pop goes the weasel:

1/ Rude people – I absolutely DETEST (okay, that’s a strong word) people who are rude and obnoxious to strangers on the street. If you don’t know the person, at least pretend to be civil, even if you don’t mean it. Is that so hard to do? Honestly? A simple thank-you, sorry, excuse me, please. It doesn’t even take much effort and breath to cough out these simple words. You could even bow if you didn’t want to say anything. Just show a bit of respect and some nice manners.. that’s all I’m asking for, really.

2/ Stupid people – People should read more to make themselves smarter. Books and magazines are a good start. Watch more TV. Surf the net. Talk to people around you. It’s so easy to gain knowledge these days. Even if it’s useless knowledge. It’s better than being stupid!

3/ Arrogant people – I don’t think anyone likes them anyway so I’m not going to waste my time explaining why I don’t like such people.

4/ Stingy people – YUCK YUCK YUCK! Because I’m a gift-giving and gift-receiving type of person.. I find myself struggling to understand such people. But I have to also admit that I do not want to understand them either. I just don’t get it. There are more important things in life than money.

5/ Petty people – Let it go, people! You’re not only making yourself miserable but the people around you too. Can’t you see that you’re a pain to be around with? No one wants to be friends with you or even associate with you because you’re so sensitive and easily offended. It’s tiring having to be on the guard on the time and watching what we say and do.. just in case we hurt your feelings. Ugh! I find such people incredibly frustrating to be around with.

6/ Dirty people – I don’t like people with bad personal hygiene. I can deal with a messy.. but not someone who hasn’t showered in like a week and sprays a whole bottle of cologne/perfume on himself/herself to cover up the bad bad B.O. These include people who sleep around too. Not that they are similar or related to those with bad hygiene. But I think people who sleep around lots or have multiple sex partners are sort of dirty too.. like contaminated. It’s a bit mean, I know. But that’s just my own personal opinion.

7/ Lazy people – Sigh.

8/ Selfish people – People who expect you to help them all the time and when you do, they are either ungrateful or don’t even bother to show any form of appreciation afterward.

9/ Racist people – Triple GRRR! Please don’t make me explain this. Just accept it.

10/ Bimbos (both male and female versions) – Why? They just piss me off. Superficial coconut-headed idiots!

And this marks the end of my very cruel list.

Top 6 Regrets

Filed under: rants & raves — Tags: — almostladies @ 12:24 pm

…in my not so short life! I took so long to finish this because I really had a hard time coming up with 6. I like what/who/how I am right now and there is nothing I would change (not counting the ever existing tummy of course!).

1. Not buying that super cheap LBD (Little Black Dress) which was of perfect length and fits me like a glove and made my legs look miles long! Not to mention the price was more than perfect!

2. Shutting the whole world out when the only thing that can help me was/is the world (I am still working on this!)

3. Trusting a MAC makeup artist too much which resulted in a totally wrong shade for my skin!

4.Going on major diet(s) during puberty which resulted in not so big tata’s 😦

5. Trusting people too easily

6. Thinking in too many languages at once which results in communication malfunction at the most important times 😦 This I cannot control 😦

I’m finally done! That took long enough! 😀

Tell Me: How many regrets do you have in your life?

Filed under: rants & raves — Tags: — almostladies @ 2:02 am

BFF and I were talking the other day about our blog and how inactive and boringly empty it’s become. 
So she came up with another topic to blog about – 6 regrets! 

I’d be lying if I said I have no regrets.. but at the same time, I don’t really have that many regrets, particularly not big big major major ones because I’m pretty happy and content with myself and my life at the moment. 

But anyway, here goes (in no particular order): 
1.  insisting on having that stupid Nokia 6288, which was a super crap and problem mobile phone – worst ever!
2.  not taking better care of my skin when I was in my pre-teens 
3.  sinking into mild depression and blaming God for my problems when I was 14-18
4.  buying too many useless bags during my 07/08 summer trip – I love bags but I really don’t need that many!
5.  saying too many uncalled for things in a fit of anger at the worst times (still happens, unfortunately)
6.   not caring enough about the people around me (I’m working on this at the mo!) 

Alright, so now.. it’s BFF’s turn! Ha Da! (:

Tell Me: How do you stay in touch with the rest of the world?

Filed under: rants & raves — Tags: — almostladies @ 1:48 pm

For me, it’s my mobile phone. I absolutely cannot live without my mobile phone. It’s the fastest and most convienient way of keeping in touch and staying in contact with friends and family. So, when I found out that I’d used up all my texts for the month.. AGAIN..

I freaked out.

How can this be happening to me?!

Now I have no choice but to use Facebook and Gmail for the next 3 days.

Boo hoo! ):

Tell Me: Have you ever had days like this?

Filed under: rants & raves — Tags: — almostladies @ 10:08 am

A mad and sad day.

It’s days like these.. which tempt you into wallowing in self-pity.

A total waste of a day.

Friends?

Filed under: personal, rants & raves — Tags: — almostladies @ 11:47 am

You know, I always thought that I was a good friend. I’ll try to always be there when one needs me. I’m never good with advices or when you cry but I always have a shoulder to lean on and a listening ear. I am always there to talk and get drunk if that is what you need. I am there when a friends needs me and is up to talk about anything and everything. I really do think that I am as good a friend as I can be.

But; I am tired of being a friend to you. These few years has shown me your bad side. I can deal with a lot when I consider one a friend; ignorance? Don’t say I did not warn you. Stubborn? Ok, up to you. That is how we have always been. But the one trait about you that I cannot take anymore is your selfishness. I’m tired of you taking me for granted and the thing’s I do with the excuse ‘That is what friends are for.’ Yea, friends are for you to suck and leech on for everything they can offer you eh?

I also know quite a few traits of you that you don’t think I know. You would be surprised at how much I know. These traits are stuff I don’t think I will want in a person I call ‘friend’.Because of these traits, I don’t think I can trust you as much as I would like to. I’ve always been an open book. You mess with me; you feel my wrath. But you are different. You’ll never be as ‘mean’ as I am but you take the I’ll-just-leave-you road aka the high road so that people will think you are the nicer one.

I thought you knew how to be a good friend. I really honestly did. But not until you started to compare. Me vs You. How nice. You know that you’ll come out the winner cause well; I am not a nice person to mess with. Plus, I am immature, childish and stupid. Oh not to mention stubborn, party girl, player and gold digger. Well, to you I am. How many times have I heard from you how immature and childish I am? I admit that I am. I take unnecessary risks, live on the edge and impulses. You’ve always had a problem with me doing that. I wonder why.

All these years, we have never truly cared about one another. That is why we refused to listen when we dish out advices to the other. Which is also why we’ll never be great friends. You’ve always been jealous of the r/s I have with the BFF and you try to have that with me. But you never see what’s wrong with our relationship and blames it on the fact that we are just too different. Lame excuse?

What I hate about you is how you think you are so close to perfect and I am just a mere girl. I don’t cook or clean. And for that I am a failure as a girl. Pft. Whatever. You fail to see your flaws and weaknesses. But its ok; you’ll see it one day. And I hate your selfishness. The world does not revolve around you and I am still having fun with my other friends. Sorry to say. Just because you don’t have a social life doesn’t mean I cant have one, no?

Tonight was the end of it all. You’ve unknowingly taken the last of what we had and manage to chuck it in the bin. So thank you. I’m finally walking out the door and not coming back anymore.

‘If you cant take me at my worse, You sure as hell dont deserve me at my best’
Marilyn Monroe.

You know what you’ve done. I reckon its time you stop focusing on yourself and start realizing your surroundings. You’ll be surprised at what you find.

Very surprised.
