Have you ever wonder why men wear one type of suit to all formal events while women changes gowns from an emperor gowns to mermaid tail, having to choose a different one in all kinds of function?
While appreciating the advantage to wear all kinds of dresses that flatters, I tried to figure out the reason.
One that I have found so far is that a man is appreciated by what is in his mind, and his capabilities, instead of how good he looks. Well.. undoubtedly men look good in simple classic suits. But why they are allowed to repeat their suits, while ladies are looked in a different way if they repeat the dress, and why not just wear a really nice, and flattering classic to all events like men? It does not have to be a suit.
I was influenced by the idea of minimalism, and being poor. lol.
It came to me that a nice flattering dress can, and shall be able to be worn to difference occasions repeatedly. I wish too, to be appreciated by merely my presence, wit and skills more than the fashion show I try to put on.
Just like a simple black dress that fits and flatters. I have worn this dress to many occasions, including classes, meet ups, beach, dinner, and a concert, simply because it is comfortable and convenience.
Though it doesn’t look like one… it sort of essentially fits into the definition of a suit for me. =)
No matter the gender, I guess we shall all be allowed to repeat attires, be simple whenever felt like, while allowing our ac-companion who likes to dress up takes the spotlight, still.. regardless of gender.
My faculty has organized and attended a wonderful prom night on last Friday.
I have refused to attend seeming everything that goes against my own recent formed belief of it being less environmental friendly and contributed to food waste glamorously.
Yes.. we do dress up and look fancy like a once in a lifetime prince and princess fantasy.. it is a cool experience to show how beautiful one can be given the effort, and money. Forming a disney moment to remember for the lifetime.
After attending to 3 proms in the past years.. I guess I have got my fair share of fairy tale experiences and shall stop pursuing it.
Instead, embrace what is real good and beautiful: kindness.
The beauty of appearance last several years, but the beauty of soul last forever.
Though I can’t deny that my batch mates do look very good in those pictures that I wish I am part of.. haha who am I kidding.
Went to Lembah Bujang and Tupah waterfall for a walk..
I cannot deny the power of nature in rejuvenating;
and the danger of stepping onto fire ants with nothing but slippers;
as well as the importance of taking care of mother earth.
These photos are to be kept nicely in my memories reminding that tomorrow will always be a better day.

There are times when I want to do so much on a weekend and end up getting nothing done.
Yesterday was one of the example.
Minute to minute anxiety brings nothing productive.
I should have just gone traveling. Gah.. haha.
