You May Win The Game But…

Agree with this 101%. Someone lost not only a fan, but a human being that supported them. Another important point is that the person whose kindness that one took advantage of or played mind games with could be the person that he/she would need help from later on. Ever heard of those stories of how those that had been bullied in high school became the boss or hiring manager of a company that the bully applies to later in life? =P

Other than that, I couldn’t sleep well last night. The heavy wind and rain hitting against my window made it difficult to get some peace. The weather in Sydney right now is terrible. It has been raining non-stop since yesterday morning and we’ve managed to get a month’s worth of rain within 24 hours! The storm feels like a cyclone. Got to embrace another night of heavy wind and rain.

The End of the First-Half of “Your Lie in April”

Standard

I haven’t finished watching Your Lie in April, but it already made me cry after I finished watching the first-half. I think I have to prepare myself for the following episodes. This anime is beautiful and I already know it’s going to have a sad ending.

You know how people squeal at confessions in anime or movies, when it comes to confessions in real life, I freak out and want to hide… =P I’ve had more than one guy confess to me this year, and I didn’t even know what to say. I feel like they don’t even know me that well (sometimes they don’t, especially when they’ve just met me! -_-). However, there are a couple that find me interesting because of my conversations, and as my friend says, “You’re like a walking talking encyclopedia.” xD When I meet people that I click with, we can talk for hours and hours on just about anything. ^^

Boost Juice Smoothies

Passion Mango and All Berry Bang smoothies

Boost Juice have the best smoothies! Lost count of the number of times I’ve had one. All Berry Bang and Passion Mango are my favorite flavors. I haven’t tried the others, though. =P Maybe I should go for Tropical Storm next time, IA.

Having a medium cup size smoothie is almost like having a meal, so sometimes I go for the smaller cup, which isn’t always on display. For anyone visiting Aussie Land, Boost Juice is a must try! It’s super refreshing, especially in the summer time. ^^

“Star Wars Episode VI: The Force Awakens” Official Teaser

Standard

Finally some updates on the next Star Wars movie! Looking forward to watching this, IA. Sometimes, Hollywood movie teasers/trailers can be over-exaggerated and cliche, and the ones with action appear to follow the same formula. However, this one’s alright, despite some parts being stereotypically cheesy to appeal to the fandom. =P

I’m assuming that the story of Star Wars: The Force Awakens centers around the children of Han Solo and Princess Leia and possibly even Luke Skywalker?

An Ex-Fan’s Take on Celebrity Worship

Standard
Yahoo Answers - Why Do People Worship Celebrities

Yahoo! Answers Question on Celebrity Worship

I found this question on Yahoo! Answers while looking into celebrity obsession, because I see too many signs of celebrity obsession in the K-Pop fandom, including fans losing their own identity and living their lives through the celebrities that they choose as their favorite. Ever since I quit being a fan and now look at pop culture from an outsider’s point-of-view, I can completely understand why people are perplexed at celebrity obsession and wonder how someone could invest so much time in a person that they don’t even personally know.

Spit Bridge to Manly Scenic Walk

Standard

DSC_0252-2

Finally did the Spit Bridge to Manly scenic walk with friends! It was a 10km walk with lots of nature to see along the way. The walk is meant to be 3-4 hours long, but it took us around 5 hours to complete since we stopped in a couple of places to take photos as well as have lunch. We had enough time after the walk to go have dinner and some coffee in the city.

The Spit Bridge to Manly scenic walk has been on my list of things to do for ages (remember when I talked about it last year in my post Bondi to Coogee Beach Walk?) and it feels nice to accomplish it, alhamdulillah. I took a lot of photos during the walk, but due to time constraints, I’ve only posted the above few. The photos here don’t cover everything that there is to see along the walk. There’s so much more! I definitely recommend the walk after completing the Bondi to Coogee Beach walk. ^^

Invasion and Oppression in the Past and Present

Invasion and Oppression in the Past and Present

(Credit: As watermarked)

I found this artwork to be a powerful representation of invasion and oppression in both the past and present. It shows us how things haven’t changed even after hundreds of years.

On the left-hand side of the artwork, we can see Palestine being bombed for the purpose of invasion, and on the right-hand side we can see Native American land being burned for the same reason. The effects on both sides are the same regardless of race, and it’s usually the children that are most affected from such events as they no longer have a safe and peaceful place to live and grow up in. I feel like these children grow up early due to the conflicts that they see around them.

What happened in Syria recently is also an example, as it has caused over a million children to leave school and seek refuge in other countries. They still haven’t received access to education.
