yukiteru:

Oh I din expect you’ll tag me. Thanks yukiteru!
Hey! Once you get this, you must publicly say five things you like about yourself, then pass it on to fifteen. Not back to me :)

Not quite sure what I like about myself but here goes:
1) I’ve pretty good direction sense.
2) I’m much better in the sciences than the arts.
3) I try to do what I like/want to do, rather than what the society expects. (Shouldn’t we all live for ourselves, rather than for others? But sometimes, it can be hard.)
4) I almost always attend all lectures and tutorials and do my homework.
5) I enjoy reading the newspapers (and whatever interesting articles I may come across on the net).

Oh man I think I think I’m better off listing what I dislike. :( So many things to improve on.

I tag: ron-mmy, raaddd, fungyi, la-panda, hk-kr-tw-cn, dramaquotes, incessantcomposition, littlecloverstar, mic7879tvb, photoshopbyfyh. (By right it’s 15 but I dun rly know ppl on tumblr so there’s only 10. Oops!)

There isn’t one cookie-cutter job/marriage/family pattern for you to follow. Your path can be completely different than anyone else’s, but that doesn’t make it any less valid. ^^

New DefinitionThe greatest debate on a modern city development is how well the local heritage on a site can maintain. It’s common in Hong Kong that urban redevelopment wipes out the original face of the entire zone. We cannot see any ‘old Hong Kong’ which many of us wish to re-visit, re-live the experience in the past. While most of the old Hong Kong heritage can be found in our Museum of History, it’s never comparable to a living one.
As a newer generation, I’m keen on these kind of living tradition. Besides the original purposes (mostly bring luck, prosperity, remove evil beings), it brings joy, entertainment and celebration to the people. I don’t think it’s easy to come up with a new traditions based on our region. That’s why we try so hard to embrace the existing ones. To name a few, the Fire Dragon Dance in Tai Hang and the Cheung Chau Bun Festival.
To celebrate the Birth of Buddha, apart from the normal lion, dragon dance; what’s special about this parade is that they dressed children as the ‘mini living statues’ to worship with. Each dressed up children on the trolley has become the center of attention, traditionally they dressed the children as gods, Chinese fictional characters. The locals have brought new twists to the children’s costumes as well as props that goes with it. Anything that’s in trend we can think of, some dressed as celebrities and even politicians, government officials to reflect the status of current affairs. It’s very unique.
The locals have made bun towers to worship with. Somehow, some time, they had turned it into a competition. It takes place in the midnight 12am. The buns you see on the tower has become the label of this special day. It’s told that the red stamps on each bun can bring you luck! It’s no surprised that everyone grabs a few of these steamy buns from the local bakery. The label ‘平安 or Ping An’  translates as calmness and safety. There’re also all kinds of printed souvenir available, from key chains to neck pillow, anything you can think of it might be there! apinhongkong:

When I first visited, I was stunned by the richness of the land, by its lush beauty and exotic architecture, by its ability to overload the senses with the pure, concentrated intensity of its colors, smells, tastes, and sounds… I had been seeing the world in black & white and, when brought face-to-face with India, experienced everything re-rendered in brilliant technicolor."- Keith Bellows, National Geographic Society

spondylitis:

The nerve!….This goes out to all the spoonies.
Read this:
“My name is Emelie Crecco, I’m 20 years old and I have cystic fibrosis. CF affects the lungs (as of many organs in the body) because of this I have a handicapped sticker. I’m not one to “abuse” the sticker, meaning I use it when I’m having a “bad day” (some days its a little harder to breathe). Today was HOT so I needed to use my sticker. I was running errands all day around my town, I pulled into a handicapped spot, placed the sticker in my mirror and continued into the store. Upon returning to my car I found a note written by someone, it said “Shame on you, you are NOT handicapped. You have taken a space that could have been used by an actually handicapped person. You are a selfish young lady.” I was LIVID. How can someone be so ignorant and cowardly? They clearly saw me walk out of my car, why not approach me? Not all handicaps are visible. I would love for you to share this story. It would help spread awareness for CF, but it would help open people’s minds to what handicapped really is.  Thank you for your time” ~Emelie Crecco

A friend of mine fell over 20 feet and basically broke half his ribs, punctured his lung, broke his arm in three places that required many surgeries to fix and messed up a nerve in his leg. He had to walk with a cane for a long time after it and some lady in a restaurant thought he was just walking with a cane for the hell of it and she ripped it from his hands and grabbed his messed up arm and shook him and told him he was an awful human being for pretending to be handicapped. What the fuck people?

This is what real ableism looks like.

I have ulcerative colitis, an autoimmune disorder which causes my body to attack my colon, and I qualify for one of those stickers. I’m scared to get one, though, because I look healthy and whole.-Orange

This whole post makes me feel nauseous. I have ulcerative colitis and one of the things that really gets to me is how people who don’t know me perceive me when I’m going through a flare up. Whoever wrote that note has clearly never been ill and could never understand. If this ever happened to me… I don’t even know.

I have UC/Crohns, have had several surgeries, have used handicap tags on multiple occasions, and often need wheelchairs for things like airports and theme parks - even when I’m having a “good” day, if it’s 90+ degrees out I can’t walk around Disney for hours on end or I would end up hospitalized for a week. I’m young and I look younger - and the looks I get are terrible. Even when no one says anything I get stares and disapproving looks and I can practically hear the “you aren’t handicap! You’re laughing and joking with your friend! You look perfectly healthy! What’s wrong with you?!”
It’s not just ableism, either, because I get looks and comments from people who are disabled who think I’m faking because I’m so young - it’s absolutely also an age thing.

When I was seventeen I developed a rare autoimmune disorder, Acute Disseminated Encephalomyelitis with Transverse Myelitis. It’s very similar to Multiple Sclerosis. After I got out of the hospital and was cleared to drive again my doctor insisted I have a handicapped placard because I was still having trouble walking long distances and had severe back pain. I met my family at Olive Garden just a few weeks after receiving my placard and parked in a handicapped spot, I hated doing it but I recognized that I needed it, I wasn’t doing myself any favors pretending nothing was wrong. As I was exiting the car an older woman and her friend made comments about me, essentially saying I was a selfish and disgusting human being for using the parking spot. They made sure to say this within earshot but not to my face. I was so angry that I confronted her and told her that I had an autoimmune disease and not to be so quick to judge. She accused me of lying and screamed in my face. I ended up spending half the dinner in the bathroom crying. I had so much guilt for using what I needed medically, between the looks I to at school having to use it and then being attacked publicly….no one should have to feel that way. Don’t be so quick to judge, just because someone looks fine on the outside doesn’t mean they are.

My name is Emelie Crecco, I’m 20 years old and I have cystic fibrosis. CF affects the lungs (as of many organs in the body) because of this I have a handicapped sticker. I’m not one to “abuse” the sticker, meaning I use it when I’m having a “bad day” (some days its a little harder to breathe). Today was HOT so I needed to use my sticker. I was running errands all day around my town, I pulled into a handicapped spot, placed the sticker in my mirror and continued into the store. Upon returning to my car I found a note written by someone, it said “Shame on you, you are NOT handicapped. You have taken a space that could have been used by an actually handicapped person. You are a selfish young lady.” I was LIVID. How can someone be so ignorant and cowardly? They clearly saw me walk out of my car, why not approach me? Not all handicaps are visible. I would love for you to share this story. It would help spread awareness for CF, but it would help open people’s minds to what handicapped really is.
Thank you for your time”

A friend of mine fell over 20 feet and basically broke half his ribs, punctured his lung, broke his arm in three places that required many surgeries to fix and messed up a nerve in his leg. He had to walk with a cane for a long time after it and some lady in a restaurant thought he was just walking with a cane for the hell of it and she ripped it from his hands and grabbed his messed up arm and shook him and told him he was an awful human being for pretending to be handicapped. What the fuck people?

This is what real ableism looks like.

I have ulcerative colitis, an autoimmune disorder which causes my body to attack my colon, and I qualify for one of those stickers. I’m scared to get one, though, because I look healthy and whole.

This whole post makes me feel nauseous. I have ulcerative colitis and one of the things that really gets to me is how people who don’t know me perceive me when I’m going through a flare up. Whoever wrote that note has clearly never been ill and could never understand. If this ever happened to me… I don’t even know.

I have UC/Crohns, have had several surgeries, have used handicap tags on multiple occasions, and often need wheelchairs for things like airports and theme parks - even when I’m having a “good” day, if it’s 90+ degrees out I can’t walk around Disney for hours on end or I would end up hospitalized for a week. I’m young and I look younger - and the looks I get are terrible. Even when no one says anything I get stares and disapproving looks and I can practically hear the “you aren’t handicap! You’re laughing and joking with your friend! You look perfectly healthy! What’s wrong with you?!”

It’s not just ableism, either, because I get looks and comments from people who are disabled who think I’m faking because I’m so young - it’s absolutely also an age thing.

"In P6 there were only 6 kids in the class for my mother tongue. And only one of them passed and went to sec 1. That was me. I got into normal tech stream. But my brother laughed at me ‘cus he was already in poly and he said the normal tech students couldn’t study hard. 

He made me so angry. I thought, ‘I’ll prove you wrong!’

After that I stopped studying at home - ‘cus it was hard to concentrate - and I started studying at the library. I really needed to buck up - especially my maths. Well the next year I was moved up to normal academic stream then the year after that, guess what? Express! That’s right. I’m proof that if you are determined you can do it. You just have to believe in yourself.”

"So do you thank your brother for pushing you to do better?"

"No way. He is still very annoying."
