The Last Time

12644952_776659052464101_8944127786311316927_n

From the moment you hold your baby in your arms,
you will never be the same.
You might long for the person you were before,
When you have freedom and time,
And nothing in particular to worry about.

You will know tiredness like you never knew it before,
And days will run into days that are exactly the same,
Full of feedings and burping,
Nappy changes and crying,
Whining and fighting,
Naps or a lack of naps,
It might seem like a never-ending cycle.

But don’t forget …
There is a last time for everything.
There will come a time when you will feed
your baby for the very last time.
They will fall asleep on you after a long day
And it will be the last time you ever hold your sleeping child.

One day you will carry them on your hip then set them down,
And never pick them up that way again.
You will scrub their hair in the bath one night
And from that day on they will want to bathe alone.
They will hold your hand to cross the road,
Then never reach for it again.
They will creep into your room at midnight for cuddles,
And it will be the last night you ever wake to this.

One afternoon you will sing “the wheels on the bus”
and do all the actions,
Then never sing them that song again.
They will kiss you goodbye at the school gate,
The next day they will ask to walk to the gate alone.
You will read a final bedtime story and wipe your last dirty face.
They will run to you with arms raised for the very last time.

The thing is, you won’t even know it’s the last time
Until there are no more times.
And even then, it will take you a while to realize.

So while you are living in these times,
remember there are only so many of them
and when they are gone, you will yearn for just one more day of them.

One Last Time.

PMS gives me strength.

PMS gives me strength.

Maybe it’s just biological, or maybe having your period makes more alert of all the idiots out there. However could also be from the lack of sleep, since Mahdi woke up at 3am and puked milk all over the bed. -_-.

Multiple issues were brought to my attention this morning, and it has me in a pissy mood.

Anyhow, here’s short list of things that piss me off today.

  • People saying that our young are screwed, because they are brought up playing iPads, instead of playgrounds. I get this, but seriously, have you seen the conditions of your local playground? I know mine is terrible, and we still try and find time to bring Mahdi there once in awhile. But i understand this is a luxury that many don’t have. We really can’t compare what we had back then, and what our children have.
  • Seeing pictures of Miley Cyrus that look like this on the internet…. Too many things piss me off about this picture that i don’t even know where to start.
miley-robin-thicke
WHYYYYYY!!!???
    • Idiot customers who complain sarcastically on facebook, seriously, i don’t bloody have time to figure out if you are being sarcastic or not. I am trying to help your stupid ass, so some common courtesy and manners would be really helpful in me solving your problems.
    • Comments like this on Kim Kardashian’s photo of her daughter North West.

North West
North West commentsDisgusting people. Simply disgusting. I get why people don’t like Kim, her family or Kanye…. but wishing a baby would die, or be gassed? DISGUSTINGLY, FOUL HORRIBLE PEOPLE.

After making this list, it is clear that all my anger and annoyance all stems from the basic absence of humanity, humility and common sense… which i blame the internet for desensitizing this generation. People think if they are behind a keyboard, they can say anything, poke fun at things in the privacy of their homes and aliases.

Being a social media manager, i definitely see more than my fair share of cyber bullying, fueled by ignorance in humanity and manners. I think we should have social media etiquette classes thought at a school level. Something like moral studies, but for the future internet savvy generation.

It’s the only thing that would make sense.

Something different.

I had promised myself that this blog would no longer be a place where i vent and complain. Since i want this part of my life to be happy, and always positive.

But honestly, this whole racial segregation that is happening in Malaysia (and at school even) is ridiculous.

I went to a all girl school, i can safely say we had 98% malays and about 2% different races.

Never, has it ever been an issue that someone was bullied or treated less for being a different race. I myself am a mix of various different races, and i don’t feel that it has had anything to do with who i am today. It all depends on how you were raised.

If you were raised by bigots. Most probably you will probably be petty and not understand what Malaysia is all about.

When i was standard 2, my bestfriend Siti had a fight with a chinese boy, because he called our ‘Agama Room’ bilik Ikan and she got upset to the point of tears (backstory, there was a picture of a fish on the door).. But even then, i remember thinking to myself, that why is she getting so upset that someone is so stupid, that they don’t respect you? Crying bloody murder to someone who is already stupidly ignorant, is not going to make them somehow smarter.

People should take the time to educate each other, and use your words.. instead of immediately taking offence and getting all upset. Chill, take a breather and reflect… Maybe mamat ni tak expose to manners? Or dia memang nak provoke, why wanna get offended, be the bigger person.. because if you don’t fuel the fire, the fire will eventually die out.
