The glorious and triumphant return of now-19 year old Blogger, the revival of a once-grand and dare I say influential webspace that produced daily content, and the crippling anxiety of a young woman who no longer has any time or motivation to write, and feels like any ability she had acquired in the past through repetition and sheer will alone is now slowly slipping out of her grasp. Brief history of the Blog and Blogger can be found here.

Here be personal journal entries, observations, slices of life, questions and conclusions, as well as exploration of social and political topics seen through the lens of a Malaysian Muslim, feminist, lesbian, Marxist, and horse enthusiast.

you are the risk i'll always take

because of Monday i've decided to reinforce some old ground rules

“Before you speak ask yourself: Is it kind, is it necessary, it is true, does it improve upon the silence?”
-shirdi sai baba
  1. as a general rule, do not talk about pri (or helena or syaz - or at least, not like that)
  2. before speaking ask yourself 'am i mengumpat-ing'? ask yourself whether you would like it if other people talked like that about you.
  3. if you talk about a friend behind their backs, tell them about it later on regardless of consequences. unless you're mad at that person and they used to be your friend, in that case, refer to number 2.
  4. do not talk about a person you don't know as if you know them
  5. do not talk about people's families
