Piecing together my media analysis presentation on news coverage of People With Disabilities for UNICEF and Malaysia Press Institute tomorrow. Adding finishing touches by reading a whole bunch of journal articles on Google Scholar. Highlighting pointers and cross referencing info sources with Sections from the Federal Constitution and PWD Acts 2008 is giving me such a thrill. I have missed this, missed being in school, so much! I want to remember this moment. This is the hour in which I asked myself "what do I really want to invest my life in?"

Hello KK. It has been 10 years.

Broken legs and bleeding wounds are easier explanations for not being able to get up. For not moving. For more time to not move. There are no corporate friendly explanations for four days of being unable. Just the evidence of pills, a letter, and the promise of "Will do so later."

Lucidity. Lack thereof.

Arduous hours of recovery.


Love taught me to be kind to spider webs.

Everytime you stare urgently at an empty corner of the room, you make me believe in hantu.

Sitting in Afi Noor's MyVi yesterday, I discovered her quirky habit of sticking backup tudung pins into her driver's seat. This is a lot like my habit of sticking backup bindis on my mirror. I thought this was really interesting. We're not so different after all.

Fish breath floof monster.


It is always wonderful to see Sumitra Selvaraj glow as she talks about Sarees and Stories. #PechaKuchaPJ
