This week, I learn…

… a lot of new things…

I suddenly wanted to know more about the Amish people (don’t ask why… I also dunno why…). IMO, you have to have a really, really strong belief and self-discipline to forego every single kemajuan that the world has got to offer. I don’t think I can live without internet anymore… 🙂

I also learn that ‘Rosh Hashanah’ and ‘Yom Kippur’ are actually Jewish holy days… All this while I thought it’s related to Hinduism or Sikh (yes, yes… I’m a dumb blonde)…

I also learn that ENO can help with your heartburn. For those who are pregnant and nothing seems to help (even 100 plus), try ENO… Not too much tho… Sip slowly and you will feel better soon.

I learn that some Malaysian are really ignorant about their own nationality. I heard on the radio this morning, a lady said; ‘I don’t actually kno what I am. So I usually describe myself as ‘Marjerin – Malaysian + Arab + Jawa + Indian’…’ OMG! What passport you hold la???? You are a citizen of Saudi, Indonesia, and India as well????? I’m not patriotic but when you confused your nationality with your own ethnicity, you are such a dumb-ass!

This week I also learn that Baby K knos 1, 2, tiiiiii! So when I count 1, 2, she will say ‘tiiiii’… And she seems to prefer boys than girls… Dunno where she got that from…. Hehehehehe….

So friends, if you have some time, learn something new…

Selamat Hari Merdeka!

p/s: Today we are having a Merdeka Celebration in the ofis. Everyone is supposed to dress up in national costume. I came wearing a pair of jeans and a t-shirt. A friend asked about my attire and I told him, ‘I’m the British soldier who came to jajah Tanah Melayu on a weekend…’… WHAAAAAT?!!!! True whaaaat!

    That ‘Marjerin’ label struck me as interesting. I blame this on Russell Peters, he started the ‘Icecube’ terminology and everything just snow balled from there.

    Nevertheless, for some people ‘race’, ‘ethnicity’ and ‘nationality’ prove to be a black hole. They even find commenting on their ‘religion’ painstaking.

    I guess, that female was one of them.

    I experience the same problem here. Whenever people ask me what am I, I petulantly smile and answer ‘ proud Mongolian’ in return. 😉
