#LOVEWINS

First and foremost, congratulations to the LGBT community! The fact that the United States legalised same-sex marriage is amazing. As a supporter, it is very exciting to know that more and more people can now choose who they want to love! ❤️

Also, I think it is absolutely adorable how they are rainbows everywhere now. Have you seen Twitter? They give you a cute little rainbow heart every time you tweet #lovewins.

This is such a huge step for them. Imagine! Before all this, it was illegal for two men or two women in love to marry each other. Something as abstract and beautiful as love is restricted because it’s seen as ‘wrong’. Now, they can walk hand in hand and proudly declare their love for each other.

I know this piece of news will come with its share of haters. And I’m totally cool with it. People are entitled to their own opinions. However, I admit it irks me when some really take it to the extreme.

To add on, I would like to point out that this ISN’T going to destroy procreation. Sheesh, not everyone will start falling in love with the same gender just because marriage equality is a thing. Personally, I don’t see myself marrying another woman.

It’s not a matter of influence either. Marriage requires commitment. If you aren’t dedicated to loving someone, whatever the gender is, what is the point of spending the rest of your life with that person? I doubt anyone will feel the urge to suddenly change their partner preferences just because of this law.

Because love is more than that.

So let’s celebrate this moment in history and bask in all of its glory. Three cheers for love! HIP HIP HOORAY! HIP HIP HOORAY! HIP HIP HOORAY!

Watch your words

Where I live, you are expected to be mindful of what you say.

After all, we are labelled as a ‘multi-racial’ and ‘multi-religious’ society. People of different faiths and races live alongside one another in a tiny country. I was told to be sensitive to others’ beliefs, hence I avoided topics of religion.

That’s not to say that you are absolutely forbidden from bringing it up for discussion. It depends on the circumstances. It would be more comfortable for two parties sharing the same religious beliefs to engage in conversation. Or maybe you wish to comment about the news without bringing religion into the picture (innocent victims due to ISIS activities for example). If you’re perhaps simply enquiring out of curiosity, that’s fine too.

However, what if we have, say, an atheist and a Christian? Warning flags should begin popping up if you’re considering saying something offensive. Why go to such lengths to ruin a relationship even before it started?

It’s about respect. You may not agree with his or her way of thinking, you may even feel strongly against it. In the end, you’re not him or her. We are all brought up in completely different settings and exposed to separate beliefs, attitudes and opinions. What right do we have to insult their way of life? Wouldn’t it be better to show tolerance and respect?

Want to have a discussion on religion? By all means, go ahead. Just remember to watch your words.

The K-pop industry is ugly

This blog was supposed to be happy-go-lucky but I really really really want to rant somewhere about this issue. So read on, if you’re interested.

On November 26th, news broke that K-pop boy band B.A.P filed a lawsuit against their company, TS Entertainment to nullify their contracts. It came as a great shock to the entire fandom, and me.

I am a huge fan of B.A.P ever since the day I’d seen their teaser for their first music video. I was obsessed. I willingly spent my money every time they released a new album (with the exception for the Japanese ones). I tried my best to collect as much merchandise as I could. They were my idols, I wanted to support them as much as possible. But now? I feel cheated.

Because I’m happy

Are you a happy person?

I have friends who wonder how do I always seem to look so troubled-free almost all the time. To some extent, it is true. I try my hardest never to put myself in a situation that comes with a price. Romantic relationships? Popularity? I stay away from these as much as possible. But I’m still human. I have my own troubles and feelings. However, I keep them all bottled in and continue living oh-so-merrily. It’s a neat little trick I picked up, convincing my mind to be that way. And no, I am 100% positive I am not deceiving myself.

This video was shown to me during the previous semester, and it left a very deep impression on me. Check it out below.

Lyrics by heart

I’ve been trying out Blogging 101 at my own pace and now find myself with the task to make a daily prompt personal. Today’s prompt(and by today, I mean yesterday) seems fun to write about as well. So, here’s my first ever attempt.

My mom used to play this for me when I was a child. I wasn’t able to comprehend the song, but I did feel something whenever I listened to it. It was always so soothing to listen to. Truly a classic.

As I grew up, I gradually forgot about it. It would probably have stayed that way, if my friend didn’t start playing that very song on her phone. It grabbed my attention so quickly I whipped around to face her and almost shouted, “WHAT SONG IS THAT?” “I’ll Remember You,” she said. And I sang along. Erm, to be more precise, I hummed to the melody. I couldn’t recall most of the lyrics, but the chorus firmly remained in my mind. I was surprised. Even after all these years.

♪”I’ll remember you And baby that’s forever true You’re the one that I’ll always miss Never thought it would feel like this

I’ll be there for you, No matter what you’re going through In my heart you’ll always be, forever baby I’ll remember you”♪

I went home, listened to it more closely, and I finally realised its meaning. It definitely is a song revolved around love. However, to me, it signified the close relationship I have with my best friends. At that time, we were nearing graduation day and going our separate ways.

It may seem not that much of a big deal since Singapore is so tiny and we could easily hang out anytime. But we won’t have the time. Each of us will have our own commitments and obligations to fulfil. That is why I found the song so much more beautiful.

Friendship is something I value greatly. It doesn’t matter how much popularity or acceptance I got. As long as I have those I care about sticking by my side, I couldn’t ask for better friends.

Stepping into the blogosphere

If you’ve seen my first blog post, you would have known why.

This whole blog is an experiment for me, but I am not exactly a stranger to the process. Years ago, in my early teens, I started out on Blogger with a blog named ‘Ola Amigo’. It was an outlet for me to recount the experiences I had in school. Regrettably, the initial drive I had for it slowly faded away, as I lost interest in dedicating myself to my blog. Now it is left stagnant in cyberspace.
