2012

A new year. Now, didn't 2011 just pass by in a blink of an eye?

The winter holidays have definitely been insightful, have been taking a deeper look into fashion and wow, it's just amazing!

My favourite designer at the moment has to be Marc Jacobs especially the Marc by Marc Jacobs collection. It is definitely more suitable to the teens as compared to the Marc Jacobs line itself. The bags are just to die for and everything's just so quirky and adorable. I love the funny looking girl that appears on cosmetic bags and watches. :) The best part is that his items aren't overpriced like Gucci or Prada.

Marc by Marc Jacobs
My favourite outfit from his collection. It will definitely go well with Chinese New Year which is in just a week's time!

Love, Liz.

Bullying

I feel sorry for you that you have to put others down just to make yourself feel better. You suffer from an inferiority complex. I feel utterly sorry for your soul because when karma hits you, it'll probably be a hurricane. I am appalled with the horrible and disgusting deeds you've done. I don't see how you can justify your actions. You need help. Serious help.

To kill a mocking bird.

"I'd rather you shoot at tin cans in the back yard, but I know you'll go after birds. Shoot all the blue jays you want, if you can hit 'em, but remember it's a sin to kill a mockingbird."

Human trafficking.

Human trafficking. I first heard about it when I was 15. I watched the movie on Hallmark and at that point, I really had a different perspective on what the world really is. Sometimes due to the urbanized life we live, we tend to think the whole world lives like this as well but in reality, only a fraction of the world lives like that. We live in such a comfort zone that we don't bat an eyelid on how the rest of the world lives. When I first watched the movie, I was just stunned. Girls my age, your age or kids even younger are kidnapped or conned and brought from third world countries to places like Thailand, Cambodia to be sex slaves. It's one of the many reasons why traveling to third world countries with young kids or alone is so very dangerous. Some parents in those very small poor villages sell their kids knowingly that their kids would be sex slaves, just so they can earn a quick buck. 

Living in the 21st century, you'd think we're done with all that. You'd think that slavery has been abolished but little do you know at this very point, there are more slaves than at any point in human history. WHY? Well, there's a huge demand for sex now a days. All these perverts out there who only thrive on sex visit these brothels and get instant gratification. If there was not demand on sex, human trafficking probably won't be so rampant. I would say probably in the last decade, human trafficking definitely has increased due globalization. Globalization has happened for the better and the worse. Young boys and young girls are forced to serve as sex slaves. They are usually aged around 7-18. Sex maniacs prefer them in their adolescent age. Now, you're 18. You're sitting at home in front of you computer reading this and there's someone of there being forced into slavery. These kids who are taken away and they have no turning back. They will probably never see their front porch again or their families. It's a life long imprisonment. 

Human trafficking usually masks itself as prostitution so the people don't seem very bothered to find out about it but you need to be educated. The girl you saw at the red light district could be very well missing her little bear she use to cuddle at night so think twice before you judge prostitutes. They are hungry, kept on a ball and chain. They can never escape and I respect these courageous girls. They continue to live and hope that one day someone who save them. They live knowing another day would be full of this shit but they also know that good will prevail. Many of these youngsters are poached by fake modelling agencies. They give false promises to their hopeful girls telling them that they will be on a cover of high end brands in America. The girls fall prey and the rest is history. So, be careful. Be careful of these modelling agencies and other scams. Be on guard at all times. Eventhough, we live in Malaysia which is considerably quite safe as compared to other countries, please note that Malaysia is still third world so be on guard! Tell your friends about it so they'll be aware. 

So remember that you can make a change. You can do something about it. First, you should let your friends know about human trafficking so they can be on guard and let others know as well. Second, you can make a donation at www.notforsalecampaign.org . Third, you should know where your products come from like it is a product of child labour? If it is, please do not buy it as you will only be encouraging the industry. Fourth, PRAY. Pray that these helpless souls and pray that they will be liberated. Talk to your churches, mosques and temples about it! Let them know and so the community can pray for these youngsters and kids. Fifth, appreciate your loved ones. You mom, dad, brother, sister, dog, cat, hamster, grandparents, godparents, friends as a favour for those who can't but want to. DO IT FOR THEM. 

GO TO WWW.NOTFORSALECAMPAIGN.ORG. READ MORE, BE EDUCATED!

Nerds. B)

So today's Star newspaper had an article about NERDS. Okay, so nerds have always been an outcast and 'uncool' but NERDS are what we are now like I won't be writing this post if it wasn't for Bill Gates. So then why are nerds seen uncool or unacceptable in society? Just because we study hard and we sometimes, don't want to go for parties, we're uncool? 

It goes without saying that nerds are the billionaires in this world. We want to be socially accepted but we can't have it all. I love being a nerd and am darn proud of it. I love that fact that at times I would rather read the Economist than go out. And yes, whenever I read something intriguing, I Google it or look it up on Wikipedia to learn more about it. I love Greek mythology and recently, taken an interest in Tibetan history. So who cares if you've been bullied just because you're a nerd? I say, suck it up because in years to come, you'll be doing much better than the bullies. 

This song is to all you, bullies or meanies out there who have nothing else better to do than make other people feel bad about themselves due to your inferiority complex.  


You, with your words like knives and swords and weapons that you use against me
You have knocked me off my feet again got me feeling like I'm nothing
You, with your voice like nails on a chalkboard, calling me out when I'm wounded
You, pickin' on the weaker man

Well, you can take me down with just one single blow
But you don't know what you don't know

Someday I'll be living in a big old city
And all you're ever gonna be is mean
Someday I'll be big enough so you can't hit me
And all you're ever gonna be is mean

Why you gotta be so mean?

You, with your switching sides and your walk-by lies and your humiliation
You, have pointed out my flaws again as if I don't already see them
I'll walk with my head down trying to block you out 'cause I'll never impress you
I just wanna feel okay again

I'll bet you got pushed around, somebody made you cold
But the cycle ends right now 'cause you can't lead me down that road
And you don't know what you don't know

Someday I'll be living in a big old city
And all you're ever gonna be is mean
Someday I'll be big enough so you can't hit me
And all you're ever gonna be is mean

Why you gotta be so mean?

And I can see you years from now in a bar, talking over a football game
With that same big loud opinion but nobody's listening
Washed up and ranting about the same old bitter things
Drunk and grumbling on about how I can't sing

But all you are is mean
All you are is mean and a liar and pathetic and alone in life
And mean, and mean, and mean, and mean

But someday I'll be living in a big old city
And all you're ever gonna be is mean, yeah
Someday, I'll be big enough so you can't hit me
And all you're ever gonna be is mean

Why you gotta be so mean?

Someday, I'll be, living in a big old city
(Why you gotta be so mean?)
And all you're ever gonna be is mean
(Why you gotta be so mean?)
Someday, I'll be big enough so you can't hit me
(Why you gotta be so mean?)
And all you're ever gonna be is mean

Why you gotta be so mean?

So, all you nerds, outcast, geeks out there be PROUD! 

love, liz.

SPAM.

I didn't know you could write a song about spam. Hmm, I'm going to make a spam sandwich now. 


Yes, I love spam too! Hehe. 

Bought the ingredients to make the Mac & Cheese. Teehee. 

Love, liz.
