Who Can We Trust?…

There’s so many Anna Delvey’s @ Anna Sorokin and Elizabeth Holmes’ in the world these days that swoon those around them and “made” people believe in them for the things that they told them. So many “stories” and lies that they told without blinking an eye or feeling any guilt while doing it.

My friend even told me that one of her friend’s girlfriend lied about her profession, her family background and so much more. The only thing that was real and true about her was her name. How crazy is that? How did the family finally found out the truth? The hired a Private Investigator to check on her before they allowed the son to marry her and boy, were they shocked!!

So, the BIG question is, What and Who can we believe in this day and age? How do we know that the person we’re interacting with is telling us the truth about who they are? What more about how do they truly feel towards us or is it all manipulation just to get things to go their way?

This is why I still sometimes wished that I was living in the 1960’s when things were simpler and there weren’t that many “interesting” or extra “intelligent” people that’s as creative and crazy as people in the 21st century. LOL!!

This is just a food for thought for everyone out there. My advice is to be more careful with those that you let into your life. Invest in those that invest back in you. Be it time or effort. Also, always trust your gut. If something feels off, high chances that it’s too good to be true.

1st Year Anniversary…

18th Dec 2021 – A year since you left us Mom. How time has passed us by. It’s still surreal that you’re gone. I guess a huge part of me still doesn’t want to believe that it’s true. You’ve been missed dearly by everyone who were lucky enough to meet you. A kind soul that never thought twice in helping those in need, a true friend, a feisty and bubbly person and a loving, caring mother to me.

I know that you wished that I’d stop crying. Trust me, I wish I could but, the pain of knowing that you’re not around hurts a lot and it breaks me from time to time. The emotions comes in waves and when it does, it hits hard. So, please forgive me when I breakdown. It only meant that you left a huge impact on me, on many peoples’ lives.

How are things on the other side Mom? I hope that you’ve been coping well there. I always joke with Dad that you have alot of catching up with there with family and friends that left years ago. I hope that things on the other side has been good and that you’re happy. We’ll never stop missing you. I hope that you love the roses that Dad and I got for you and the Rose scented beeswax candle that I made for you.

I’m A Podcaster…

I think I can call myself a Podcaster right since I’ve done 3 episodes thus far with my Cohost, Terry? We did 1 episode each week for 3 weeks straight and we took a week break and then resume with Episode 4 last weekend. We have discussed:

  1. Does living apart keeps couples together?
  2. Why does some relationships ends and others last a lifetime?
  3. Why younger guys prefer dating older women?
  4. FWB. Good Idea? Does It Work? Is It For You?

The first 2 weeks was definitely a challenge as we experienced so many different technical issues. From echoes, video not working to even no sound. We even had to redo Episode 2 when Terry wasn’t happy with the outcome of the video/podcast. This is what it’s like working with a perfectionist. I know it very well as I myself am a perfectionist too but recent years, I’ve trained myself to just let things be as life’s not perfect and I just don’t like being stressed out.

Doing The Vault Podcast has gave me a new experience and it’s definitely been a new experience. I actually look forward to every Saturday, 10pm Malaysia time and 10am, New York as we get to talk and discuss our experiences and Point Of Views (POV) over random things. I can’t wait till Terry and I are finally in the same city so that we can meet in person and also do the Podcast across from each other. I can only imagine how much more fun it will be when that happens.

Playing Games…

People need to learn to stop playing games. It’s just not nice and it can be hurtful. They may think that it’s fun to them because they are not on the receiving end of things. Truth be told, it can really hurt and cause emotional damage or mental illness in the long run. Imagine if you’re being played, do you think you would like it?

This games can be as subtle like saying one thing, one day and going back on your words on another day. People might have cleared their schedules just to accommodate you in their plans. So, for a person to just change plans like changing underwear is a horrible thing to do unless there’s an emergency.

People really need to learn to treat others the way that they would like to be treated in return. At least, I have the decency to practice that on a daily basis. I hate hurting people because I’ve been on the receiving end many times in the past. Trust me when I say, it’s not pleasant and it really sucks. People’s feelings are fragile and once the damage has been done, sometimes you can’t reverse or take it back.
