Occasional Inspirations

For 2014, I decided to follow some of the 365 writing prompts given by The Daily Post. Check it out. It was recommended by a turtle (Don't ask.)

DopplePeoples Taking Over Life?

I'm caught by an overflowing river of homeworks and assignment. So sorry for not updating for quite a while. :) Just finished a book called 'The Other Alice'. In one day. Hooray for me. :D My first impression of the book and the actual plot were two different things. Very. This should teach me not to judge titles. .____.

So there I was, thinking 'bout dopplegangers, or dopplepeople (My word. :D) Wouldn't it be so cool to have one? You'd finish everything in half the time you'd finish it on your own. I need one. In fact, anyony with common sense - or a busy job - would wanna own one.

But then I read the blurb, which talked 'bout Other Alice taking over Alice's life. And then I got scared. What if my DopplePerson tried to take over my life? First they'll warm up to my friends and family. Then they'd do everything I did.

And then they'll drug my loved ones with memory- erasing pills to make sure I'm erased from their memory. Then DoppeleMe would erase me forever. O.O

Ooh, how I love my imagination. They aren't real? :D
Or are they...?
Oh, well this is it for now. Sorry if it's all crap.
But it's what I'm going through right now.
And limited topics in school to talk 'bout.

Have a nice day.

Sunday, September 11, 2011


 September 11th used to be just a normal day in our lives. People would just go through the day doing what they'd do routinely. All that changed in the year 2011. Dark memories and recurring nightmares of that fateful day haunts lives. Does the fear that scarred our hearts still live on now? Now, I know most people can still remember the events that occurred on that day, some even trying to erase it from their minds. For those of you who doesn't know anything 'bout it (Probably because you're under ten. But hey, if you are, I'm hapy a kid visits my blog. :)), I'd give a quick recap, but I don't really remember. The main thing was the World Trade Center destroyed after two hijacked planes crashed into, killing innocent lives.

 Some people theorized that a Muslim extremist, Osama bin Laden was the mastermind behind it all. Last I heard of him was 'round May. He was killed and thrown into the sea. Others, however, doesn't buy this story and says he doesn't exist. Instead, they say it was all a plot created by the former President Bush.

 I don't really care.
All I know is that many families lost a dear somebody in their lives, and I'm sure some still can't overcome their grief. My heart goes out to them.

 The 9/11 incident affects the world in many ways. Hatred is planted, paranoia instilled in people's hearts. Friendship were broken, trust destroyed. Even after 9/11, many lives were lost as people did the unthinkable. Now, after 10 years, the police are wary of the threats they get, searching for bombs that might not exist.

 But it taught us a very important lesson in life. We have to unite to prevent events like this from happening. The 9/11 incident has come and go, and we can never change the past.

 But we can try to change the future, and make the world a better place.

 Now, let's have one minute of silence to remember the dead.

The Spirit of Eid

This month, Eid ,or Raya, is being celebrated 'round the world after a month of fasting, including Malaysia. It is a festive season, one which is celebrated by going to visit open houses, and having fun with your family and friends.

Kids, however, have more than just fun in their heads. Yes, for the time being, their thought are filled with MONEY. They go 'round people's home and rob them of their money collect Raya money given by the adults. This is the moment where the children tune into their loan shark spirit, their eyes burning with determination to collect the most among them. How greedy-minded are they? This is a true conversation:

Dad: Do you want to go visit my friend's open house?
Baby bro: Is he rich?

 Yesh, this happened a few days ago. O.O *Dundundun* I wouldn't be surprised if I see kids running 'round with a list of open houses to visit. They're like, collecting debts from grownups or something. XD

 But Eid is a time to forgive. There are people who wants to be forgiven, but lost the chance forever. There are people who, most of the time, finds it hard to forgive others, because of the seriousness of the culprit's offense. Just ease the burden for all of us by forgiving them who have wronged you. :) Have a happy Eid.
