A new form of reality...

I went to Taman Jaya with a friend of mine after college. While on the LRT, my friend started talking to me about his love life. Well, my friend is a Catholic Christian and the girlfriend (now ex-) is a Hindu. Of course, I believe that love does not have boundaries. We all have the right to love one another. The story went on like this, my friend and the ex-girlfriend were together at one time. But the girl's parents disagreed upon their intimate relationship. Saying that my friend and his family were Catholic Christians and they can never have anything to do with their Hindu religion. His ex-girlfriend then went rebelious against the idea of her parents and then they punished her or something. Parents then forced her to marry her cousin this year.

I'm kinda sad for my friend and the girl for the fact that they have this kind of obligation, which I think it's absurd. Just by judging him for his beliefs is indeed a stupid idea. After hearing my friend's side of the story, I would say it's stupid. What can I learn from this...hmmm...could it be that I would determine a partner judging by how she is brought up? Or the kind of belief system she is in? I would pick the first option. Because, action speaks louder than what he/she reads in the bible.

I believe that we were not born as a child with a religion, but a child in a religious family. At the end of the day, we all have to decide for ourselves on what we wanna believe, because life is short. Let us all be more 'Muhibah', regardless as to whether we're Atheists, freetinkers, secular humanists or whatever.

My stress killer...

When it comes to stress upon work or whatever, this is my greatest stress killer, Trivium's 'When All Light Dies'. This song is about the realities of life. Chaos, destruction and everything else that condones further violence, and yet there's a little bright side to it. I'm not saying that the world sucks, it's just that sh*t gets in the way at certain times in our daily lives. Whoever said that we live in a world of perfection or imperfection? Neither of it is true nor a necessity to plead for either of those ways in life. You trip, you fall and you pick yourself up once again. That's LIFE. Other than that, this is just one of my favourite singles from Trivium.
