Love how he was taken in this photo :)


Snap!




It was almost 2 years ago, I spent almost everyday blogging and stay in this lovely room in Juliusblick 40, Wiesloch - Heidelberg, Germany. It has always been a cup of Indonesian instant coffee and me alone in the room trying to figure out what I am through writing. And it is becos I've finally arrived in my final year of my bachelor program just NOW, think I might have enough time to take care of my blog again. Thru this, I know what I am passionate at, and I'm satisfied with it.

Snobbish Attitude


I think I might just got annoyed by people who tend to classifically write things about other people. I don't like the way they judge others just based on what they do, or what they don't do. Just because they got praised by a lot of people for doing such cool, or noble things, I don't think that they have the rights to not to keep their head down. Snobbish, and over-confident, and all, I just don't like the idea of bragging themselves while looking down to others. Being proud is not the same thing as being snob, clearly. You might have everything that almost everyone wants, but still, don't look down to other people just because you have more. It's getting more tiring looking at yourself talking how ridiculously good you are yet people like me still have to deal with your attitude. Your snobbish personality comes in all shapes, colors, size, and backgrounds. Snobbish people can be uppity about any number of things, from wealth and material items to music and movies, even to things like brands of wine and types of food. The most deluded person I've ever found on twitter, was one who wrote the head-to-toe brands that (s)he uses everyday, just to make us figure out how filthy rich (s)he is.

Well, getting more annoyed by reading such things, I think I might found one way of dealing with snobs. It is to speak with them about their snobbish behavior and let them know how obnoxious it can be. But if the confrontational route isn't for them, there are other methods you can try, such as avoiding snobby people altogether. Like I did, I did unfollow that person long time ago, and it turns out better for me, not to have to read those deluded stuffs on my twitter timeline. Or, if they're purposefully being a snob, question some of their more egregious comments in an attempt to understand the snob's point of view. Counter with your own viewpoint to create an ongoing dialogue (if it's necessary).

Why do I have to put this on my blog?
Confront the snob by announcing how much I dislike snobbery, I would like to speak here clearly, calmly and articulately about how ugly and obnoxious snobbery can be, and how those who engage in such behavior tend to be insecure. This approach may cause snobs some embarrassment and could cause a few uncomfortable moments, particularly if others are also involved in this articles or to those who are paying attention of this person (or know who might this person be). :P

Snobs are people who need to inflate their own egos in order to feel successful and look beautiful. Do not give into their ego.

It's okay to brag things once in a while, especially those proudful things you did, and you'd like it to be announced to the whole world, it is totally okay. It's also okay to brag your new cars, once in a while, because buying cars is not like buying peanuts (clearly). It is also okay to brag your good notes, because you earned it! It's totally okay to sometimes brag about your sweet boyfriend/ girlfriend, because you love them. But it is not appropriate when you intend to brag things you have, just look down to other people. It is not okay to under-estimate other people, esp people who don't know you, both ways.

Thought that this one would be helpful for you who are dealing with snobs, and for snobs who are dealing with other people.

Get offend if you are one of the snobs! :)

The end of the MRT







We went to sumwhere quite beautiful, although we only spent 10 minutes there :p don't blame us, we were totally tired caused by excessive walking for the past day. (and excessive playing at the park, too) :p :p :p

When 2 Become 1







Well, Petronas Twin- Tower was kind of interesting. Because we don't have it yet in Indonesia, I feel kind of envy with Malaysian. But it wasn't worth the queue, you gotta get there literally early to get in the almost 3hours queue. I don't know, I feel like it was such a waste of time. But the tower was really modern-looking-sophisticated.

Keeping up with the traditional :)







Cultural market at Petaling Street, somewhere in KL. Not recommended for going shopping. The shopkeepers really are not friendly, once I bargained, they only answered it with shoo-ing gesture and wave up their hands. Really unappealing.

The District Did Not Sleep Alone That Day







Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, Summer 2011 <3

A Journey to Genting, Malaysia,Summer 2011

So, we took a real morning flight from Jakarta to Kualalumpur, and arrived in the morning time there. We directly went to Genting Highland from airport, and it was indeed a very tiring trip.





So then we arrived in Genting Highland. Well, the hotel was pretty great. But the theme park was really big a disappointment.






But the cable car is a MUST VISIT ITEM!
