TED 2: Time to lawyer up!

People around me has been hyping about Ted 2 for some time now. It was an interesting concept. But to be honest, I only watched this because J wanted to watch. I honestly didn’t find Ted to be appealing. I thought it was vulgar and crass which was not my type of humour at all. But J wanted to watch, so… -sigh- Let’s start with a trailer.. Disclaimer: Vulgarities will be used to preserve the overall feeling of…

Lesson of the week #1: It’s not shameful to feel sorry for yourself.

I twisted my ankle in the span of 5 days.  The first time I twisted my ankle, I was walking on the side of the road and stepped on an unstable rock. Then I fist bumped the ground and stayed there, fighting back tears. I just felt a rush of cold air to my face and Yen said my face just went white-wash. I didn’t want to cry in front of Yen, so I pretended nothing happened and…

San Andreas: A disaster itself.

I remember watching the trailer from as early as March 2015. Even my college featured their poster. Everyday I went by the corridor, I kept telling myself that I must watch this. I must watch this. I MUST WATCH THIS! So on 18th June, I went on a movie date with J. He was damn excited weh. He kept jumping up and down the seat (ok, not literally), brimming with excitement. So we sat through 15 minutes of…

Lynn Speaks: Mid-year contemplation

It all started like this. I was waiting for me sotong noodles tapao for dinner. While waiting, I was on my phone as usual, browsing nonsense I probably won’t remember half and hour later (I was right, by the way). And that it hit me full on the face: what am I doing with my life? It’s a very weird place to think about this and a very weird timing. Nothing spectacular happened to me; it was just…

Lynn Speaks: The definition of a hero

I first saw the Vanity Far cover without knowing who the cover girl was. I remember saying to myself: ‘Wow, that’s new!’, until I saw the name at the bottom: Caitlyn Jenner. Holy shit! To be honest, I’ve never been fascinated enough with the Kardashians to care deeply about this. The Kardashians equates a media circus to me. Entertainment at it’s lowest. No one, I thought, will be stupid or crazy enough to go through being a transgender…

Lynn speak: Why did people do what they do

“When you don’t fit in, you become superhuman. You can feel everyone else’s eyes on you, stuck like Velcro. You can hear a whisper about you from a mile away. You can disappear, even when it looks like you’re still standing right there. You can scream, and nobody hears a sound. You become the mutant who fell into the vat of acid, the Joker who can’t remove his mask, the bionic man who’s missing all his limbs and…

Lynn speaks: A letter to my boyfriend, J.

Hi! I know you probably won’t read this, not anytime soon at least. But something has been weighing on my mind for a while now. I want to go solo travelling.  People have tried and tested this. Girls, apparently. It really isn’t as dangerous as it sounds. I know you’re worried for me. I really appreciate it, but I have to learn to do this on my own. This is my ultimate testament. If I can do this,…

Lynn speaks: World without borders.

As this persecuted minority cannot find a small piece of land to continue their lives, the world is actually so vast that if the world lived with the population density of New York City, the state of Texas would be enough to fit the entire seven billion of the human population in it.In the same way, water resources are more than enough for all of us and with just over half the daily average outflow of the Pacific…

Travel Cheats: Cheap airfare!

What if I tell you that there are some ways that can (maybe) help you save some money? #1 Look for airfare tickets online using incognito tabEver felt excited looking at airfare price that is dirt-cheap, only to return to the website to find it increased? Airlines increases the price if you are looking at the same flights multiple times.For example, by…

Lynn speaks: The idea of travelling

There are some people I know that gets all enthusiastic when confronted with the notion of travelling. They get excited, they look forward to the vacation, hell, they even enjoyed the vacation. BUT they didn’t plan the vacation.Some people love travelling. Some people merely love the idea of travelling. Loving travelling to me means that you love the whole package, not only the beautiful part of it. It’s like planning a wedding. You can dream of the perfect…
