Hey guys! How are you?
I didn’t post anything last week, sorry about that, because I was so busy and this week too actually but I’ll do those stuff later.
So I did get a bunch of suggestions, some are about tips, like life tips, travel tips and relationship/dating tips, and some ask me opinion about Donald Trump and I replied to her by saying “You’re fired!”...haha....and also some suggested me to talk about the Equinox, all I could say is, God, it’s hot out here.
But what I decided to talk about, which some of you suggested, is about Beauty and The Beast. This is not a movie review because I haven’t seen it and probably won’t be able to, but it’s about the topic that’s been on the internet. I’m not sure if this topic is worldwide or it’s just here in Malaysia, and if it’s not worldwide and you have no idea what I’m talking about, just bare with me.
Some of you might already know that the new Beauty and The Beast movie will probably not be showing in cinemas in Malaysia because of the gay-related issue. I’m not 100% sure on whether it was a scene that shows that a couple of the characters are gay or was it in a song because there a lot of uncertain information regarding this. In conclusion, there is a gay character in the new Beauty and The Beast movie.
Actually it’s not just Malaysia, there’s another country or state in US that banned the movie, if I’m not mistaken. I read it on the online news last week and that’s the time I found out about this issue.
Some people feels like Malaysia shouldn’t make this as an issue and just approve it, but some feels that Walt Disney shouldn’t have create a gay character because it’s not necessary and since it’s a fairytale and children will watch it. And they should just cut the scene for the sake of those countries that disapproved the gay scene.
Anyway, I’m not gonna pick any side and I’m not saying this to play safe but that’s just who I am, I don’t like picking side unless I know that the 1 side is wrong because I have tried pick a side and it backfired me. And I also believe that both sides have their own reason for what they do or did.
So here’s my opinion on this matter.
What my country did, the review and the request for cutting out the gay scene are unfair for those LGBTQ+ community. It shows as if Malaysia doesn’t accept the fact that there are a lot of LGBT community out there. Which is wrong, we are aware of the existence.
In other hand, the reason why Malaysia’s government decided to do that is because Malaysia is a Muslim country, though a lot of people said that we don’t practice Islam and that a lot of other religion is also a Malaysian and that some gays are also Muslim. Maybe it is true, but that doesn’t mean the government has to change our label to being a Non-Muslim country.
What Walt Disney did, creating a gay character, for me, I agree with some people opinion, that it is not really necessary. Why not just keep the sexuality of the characters the same as the original? The old characters have no flaws, so why change? And why not just cut the scene for those countries who oppose?
At the same time, I understand why Walt Disney did it. They wanted to show that LGBT exist and that they don’t always live in a sitcom or drama, their live involve around action movie or horror and even fairytale. Yes kids will watch fairytale and they will be curious to know more but we have to expose to them anyway and Walt Disney feels like the best way is through this medium.
And regarding the not cutting the scene, I think they feel like those countries need to accept the LGBTQ+ community and that they might even live in that country. If Walt Disney agree to cut the scene, it seems like they are not determine on what they believe in.
So yeah, this is what my opinion is about the issue.
And I just realize how serious I am today.

“We are back on the breaking news”
Why do I suddenly feel like saying the word ‘Anyway’ is cute??
Anyway, that’s all I got for you this week. Thank you so much for your suggestions.
So this week I wanna know what do you think regarding this matter? Do you agree with me? Or not? And keep sending your suggestion for my next week’s post.

Hey guys! What’s up??!
So this week I wanna share something with you guys but it’s not a certain topic or tips or opinion but it’s something that happened to me yesterday (I’m writing this on Thursday btw). And I’m sorry it’s not any one of your suggestion, maybe I’ll do it on next week’s post, but keep sending me your suggestion, I’m still considering.
Anyway, the thing that happened to me was so embarrassing and hilarious and crazy that I just wish I could dig a hole and just jump right in and never coming out in like 100 years or something.
So let me start by saying why it happened. You see, I was having a fever (well, I’m still kinda have, but I’m getting better) because last weekend I was outside most of the day and came home late at night, “thanks” sis!
I started having fever on Monday night, actually I wasn’t feeling well that morning but I still went to work because my sister was planning to go out together today (Thursday) and I need to apply a leave. So I thought I go to work on Monday and apply for the leave and I did.
But then on Tuesday my fever was getting worst, so I didn’t go to work on that day and I went to the clinic but the doctor only gave the MC for 1 day. Therefore I had to go to work on Wednesday, though my fever was not yet cured.
A few hours before my lunch break, my body, mostly my hands, were started shaking but not too obvious. I really don’t know why. My sister said it’s either I was hungry or cold. So I went home for my lunch break. At that time I was having a headache too.
I was planning to take half day yesterday and my sister was suggesting the same. So I texted my boss and asked her if she have anything that she wants me to do. At first she said she already done everything and she asked ‘Anything?’ I replied saying ‘Nothing on my side, do you have anything you want me to do’ and she said ‘Yup. You are coming back to office right’. So I decided not to take the half day.
Once I reached my office, my boss was there and she asked me why I asked that, so explained to her my attention and suddenly she said ‘Actually there’s nothing left to do, you can just take the half day’. I was like ‘Whaaaatttt?’ but I didn’t say it out loud.
The thing is I can take the half day when she said that but my sister went out as soon as she sent me back to the office and I don’t have any other transportation to go home. So I have no choice but to stay.
A few minutes after my boss left, I texted my sister saying that what had happened and what my boss said. I should tell you that I’m not the kind of person who like to use cursive words either talking or texting, though I know it’s hard to believe since I did cursed when blogging but actually I’m not really like that, especially with my family (call me a hypocrite, I don’t care!). I usually use other word instead of the cursive word, for example, I often use the word Booger. So, when I’m mad or frustrated, I will text or say ‘That person is a booger’. So that’s what I wrote when I texted my sister, I mean the beginning of the sentences but I didn’t use any cursive words in the text.
My sister didn’t reply my text, but it’s not the first time. However, I did get a text from my boss and she said she was sorry for mistakenly type in the word ‘Yup’. So I replied saying, it’s alright with a thumb up and smiley emoji.
Like a half hour later, I called my boss to discuss about work and before I hang up, she apologized again and again I said it’s okay.
A few minutes after that, I opened my whatsapp to check if my sister has reply and still nothing. What surprised me was that the last conversation shown there was my sister informing me that she parked the car behind a lorry, which was the text she sent before I went home for lunch.
I was so worried and the first thing I did was to open the whatsapp conversation between me and my boss. And the nightmare begins when I saw that the text that I was supposed to send to my sister was sent to my boss.
I freaked out that instant and just wish it wasn’t true.
*Cover my face with a pillow*
So I straight away called my boss and apologized for it and told her that I didn’t mean to complaint and that I feel bad. She said it was okay, at least she knew how I feel.
I feel so bad, I still am. And the funny thing is, I used the word booger and sent to my boss!
It’s so crazy. I’m literally broke the record of my family for sending a complaint directly to the boss.
Okay, that’s all I wanna share with you guys for this week. I hope you enjoy reading my embarrassing moment ever.
So, the moral of the story is please make sure that you check before you send a text to anyone and try not to use cursive word when texting or speaking, because you never know who you might send it to. Honestly, I am grateful that I don’t use cursive word often.
So this week I wanna know if you have ever face this kind of situation? And how you deal with it? I also wanna know what you think I should write about next week?
