Finally I am home. Well, not in my hometown, but still, back among my family members. I am currently in Kuala Lumpur staying in my brother’s house. We will be back to Johor tomorrow evening. It’s really good to finally get away from all the madness of college life. I felt like I already lifted out one matrix tones of problems from my shoulder. Oh, and it feels damn good!
Life has been great. Yes, the workload has been multifold in recent weeks (months probably) but I am enjoying every bits of it. This is my last year in college and although I can’t wait to graduate, I am savoring the last pieces of my student life. Cheers to that.
As you may already know, Muslims all over the world are in the eve of celebrating Eid ul Fitri. Which means that we have spent this last month fasting. In this period of time, besides teaching us how to control our urges, we were taught to be patient in dealing with part and parcels of life. I failed miserably.
I think I lost my patient more often this month. I was easily annoyed whether by other people attitude or by little mistakes that I have done. Instead of being patient and forgiving, I have changed to this outspoken and easily intimidating by others.
Which is a good reason for me to start a new (and I hope it could be a weekly if not monthly) topic for Hot Shit Form Here; Annoying Things in Life. Interesting topic isn’t it?
Annoying Thing in Life 1 – Talking Really LOUD
Have you ever noticed how loud Asian people talk? First situation, when
they we were on the phone we tend to speak like we’re fighting about something important instead of having a normal (and calm) conversation like any normal human being in other parts of the world shared with each other. Or when the room was filled with Asians, it always a common thing to forget that we actually just sit next to each other and there is no need to speak in the highest octave of which our voice can give.
My friends and I have come out with several theories on this matter. First theory is that since we were “blessed” with high fertility rates, small eyes and relatively fair skin, we always tries our best to be different from each others. When ridiculous hair styles or fashion sense failed to do so, we channeled our inner self in speaking as loud as we could. Thank God we succeeded. The other theory and the most highly unlikely is that after the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki by US, the rest of Asia has been having severe hearing damaged. Remember, we also like to blame others.
How about you? Do you have any interesting theory to share? I would love to hear it. Have a nice weekend!
