The “messy mind me” Facebook kind of style – random day to day things I notice, see or experience.
you and me! Let’s talk about all the good things and the bad things that may be… and the rest of the song you probably will remember going through the memory lane, if it’s new to you, here’s the song! But this post isn’t about that song. This post is about something I read earlier. […]
I can be so terribly good at procrastinating. I even can scare myself with it! With the same amazement I can be amazed how much I can do in such little time as well. Sometimes I am feeling that I am living on the outer edges of these two extremes without being comfortable stable in […]
I am sure that every single human being is at least once in their lives: anxious, stressed, nervous, panicking, or simply said being in a state of distress. How wonderful does it then sound to be delighted! Being care free, relaxed, empowered and ready to take on the next challenge? There are many self-help books […]
But Hey!! That is simply amazing! How did that happen? I am amazed, humble, grateful that you are following me. I actually mean that! I started this blog somewhere in 2015. Then I initially wanted to have a place to collect environmental articles I posted on other blogs. But, I knew that I wouldn’t be […]
So, fellow Malaysians (I know I know, I am not a Malaysian but I do love this country and here my home is) and the rest of the world. A quick demonstration of a matsaleh (white foreigner) who doesn’t want to join the fast food hype by cooking a very simple non-Malaysian, but delicious meal!
Suddenly, as if someone snapped me out of this world I found myself being in a movie or a character in a book. It felt I wasn’t grounded on earth anymore. All that seemed real a minute ago was now fiction.
I saw there was a new app suddenly on my phone. Google Assistant or something, which now is gone for some unknown reason. But! I like her, she’s cool and witty 😂😂😂😂 and a real Rebel Thanks Google Assistant…. Sigh….
And yes, sometimes you can say that to yourself! Right, Hadie?
“10-ish in the morning, then they are coming to service the air conditioning, remember?” “Yeah, I remember” “Okay” I couldn’t keep on chatting as the air conditioning service tried to call: “I’m mat saleh (whiteman/foreigner), I no speak Malay”. End. Whatsapp: “I’m mat saleh, I no speak Malay. What time are you coming?” “on our […]
My focus in this post is the obesity side of body shaming, while there also is the opposite site. Usually in form of anorexia or other severe forms of undernourishment, which often is life threatening. Also these patients, never. ever. shame them!
“You almost drove over it, she was just not under the bloody wheel” she replied as if I had lost my mind.
“It was a plastic bag, garbage, at least so it looked” I stuttered.
“Now we have a cat” she said with great content
Where your camera lenses are coming from? I’m just realising that Hadie is supervising quality control of glass products and perhaps a lens that you might have in your camera 😀 Either your real camera, like that thing not in your phone, or exactly that thing in your phone you just took a selfie with. […]
Just because men have dicks they don’t have to show them (off) or act like being one!
So this one is for all women, and especially my woman, YOU ROCK!!!!
I am Dutch. And I seriously live a very good and content life here 10.000km away from the country I left. However. Some Dutch food I really always can eat or drink – Dutch coffee (have lots at home! Yeeeyyyy) and cheese (crap have none and import is too expensive lah) that is, and some comfort food […]
Nasi – lema-what?? Let me explain. Mat saleh/matsaleh/how-ever-you-write-it, means…. me! Or, anyone with a white skin in Malaysia, either living permanently or a tourist or whoever. In another post I mentioned Malay, Malaysian-Chinese and Malaysian-Indian as main ethnic groups beside the original inhabitants, but, maybe Malaysian-matsaleh can be a minority ethnicity as well?!?! Anyway, there […]
Since about a week (?) I started a new website I invite you to follow! Little Maryam! Healp Daniel, tell me more I’m already interested! Yeeey, thank you for being interested, I gladly tell you more! At home we have a garden. We already have mango, rambutan, coconuts, lime and bananas. Oh and Ayah, my […]
It was still before midday. The sun was out, not too warm, just yet, and it was quiet. That particular morning, a couple of days ago, to me a morning not to forget. My parents in law “gardening” and harvesting coconuts, to break them, and having nice coconut juice!
On the news lately. Fracking is now allowed in The Netherlands, be it only “a test”. Not just anywhere in the Netherlands, no. They allocated a test field in Groningen! Groningen is one of the Northern provinces struggling a lot with earthquakes due to natural gas extraction by the NAM (which is a venture between […]
We work for Google. Our employer shouldn’t be in the business of war.
What I am arguing, through examples, is that Facebook is, on the one hand too big to fail, but, on the other hand too large to manage in local context so it must be stopped/decentralized/anything but what it is now.
