... Your dad saved the best piece, without telling anyone why, then telling you to eat it when you got home. All because you told him it smelt nice on the way out, and you'd pick at the leftovers when you got home.
Or... You and your boyfriend saved up all month, just to be able to have that one KFC dinner. The look of joy on his face as he bites into that piece of chicken...
These are 2 situations that stick in my mind.. How about you? Or is there anything else that people seem to take for granted, but you've had things happen to make them more than what they seem? Drop me a line! =)

A couple of the cosplaying contestants - they all had such cool costumes and poses!! They played up the stage really, really well!!
1. How will modeling and studies go next year?
- Everything will be ok, especially as I'm so patient with it all. I will have good company, and have a lot of fun. Only bad thing is, it will take me quite a long time to settle in.
- We'll be fine, though we may have a few problems, as long as we use the right approach to settle them, we'll make it through, happy even. =)
The contestants waiting side-stage, with me just at the back!
Sorry that I couldnt get all the contestants' photos, these are all I have for now!! If anyone has any, please do provide a link to your blog, or wherever they're uploaded to so I may share with everyone, thanks!

I'm just in such a dilemma right now!! I want to move to KL to work on my modeling career, but at the same time, I really do not want to leave my boyfriend!! He cant move with me because, well, it would be selfish of me to uproot him when he already has a successful career here in KK.. The plan is basically for me to also continue studying while I'm in KL, and I have come to the conclusion that I will do a one year foundation course, then go on to do a degree in mass communication. I cant go straight to degree as I dont have enough credits, and I cant do a diploma because my dad doesnt believe in them! He actually wants me to do A Levels, but I refuse as I think it will be a waste of time and money, as I will most definately fail them; I'm not going through all the commerce/accounting/math classes again!! BUT, at first I was thinking of a diploma, which is 2 and a half years, or straight to degree, which is 3 years. Bf and I agreed on this. But now I have to add foundation, which means I'll have to be there for FOUR years!! How will we stand being seperated for at least 4 years? And.. What if I succeed in my dream and dont want to come back? What then? It's just so confusing!!
I have a good life right now here, but I cant do nothing for the rest of my life - it's already boring me!! And I know if I dont take this opportunity given to me I'll regret it for the rest of my life, and a relationship of hate will not go down in the long run will it?! Sigh.. So what should I do? Go over and not study (might regret that, and bf insists I do study anyway)? Go over and do a diploma (resulting in unhappy dad, and a waste of another couple of years)? Or what? Argh~!! I hate this!!!

Yes, you are reading CORRECTLY!! This.. dickhead.. asked me through facebook, to be his prostitute!! WTF??? I've never been so insulted in my LIFE!! Do I look like a whore to you?? And such a cheap one at that?? I.. I.. I am speechless right now.. I'll have to get back to this in the morning.. Geez.. The pure cheek!! N I havent replied yet.. Any suggestions as to how I should put this bastard in his place? I am so gonna report him its not even funny.. Luckily I have no mutual friends with him else they'd all be under my chopping board too! Argh~!!!!

But unless you literaly shut yourself out from the rest of the world, you cant escape hearing / seeing some of the horrors that go on. Someone will mention it, you'll hear someone else discussing it, you'll catch a glimpse of the news and it will drag you into it like a magnet, and lo and behold, its usually the most gruesome cases-you-feel-sick-just-listening-to that you cant walk away from, but stare at in horror / disgust.
Just a couple of days ago, I was told of the Richmond High School gang rape case. I mean, wtf?? How can anyone just stand there and watch?? I'm not even gonna mention the fact that no one, not one person, felt the urge to call the police, or even tell a teacher or someone who could've helped. Now, I'm not saying that anyone should've blindly jumped in and try to play hero; that would've been suicide, but even participating in the attack against this poor girl? I dont care if she was 15 & drunk; I dont care if she was known as a slut or anything. She could've been the most hated person in school, but does that give anyone the right to attack her like that? What human being could even think of doing something like that?? Worse, how could you be a bystander, watch this whole scene unfold in front of your eyes, then go home and sleep peacefully after all is said n done? Is this what the world has come to? And the rapists were aged 15 - 21, FIFTEEN YEARS OLD. I'm at a loss for words.
Which comes to my next point: porn stars. Yes, it's just a "movie" right? The participants were voluntarily involved, it's just for fun, if it wasnt meant to be watched it wouldnt be made, blablablablaBLA. Well please, check out this website that was set up by a former porn star, and learn more about this "clean" & "safe" & "fun" industry, and next time you think of picking up some porn, just think: the "subject" of your visual pleasure might very well be dead right now. All for your viewing pleasure.
Do you know what's even more disgusting? I actually know of people who enjoy watching videos of rape. Yes, you read correctly. One friend's mother even sent her a video of a young girl being gang-raped in a nightclub. Why? Oh, just to try scare her into not going clubbing. Is this right?? So you participate in some poor girl's misery, just to try to shock your daughter? ......
And while we're at it, there are more people than you think who actually enjoy pedophilia. Shocking, but true. So please, join me in helping, in at least spreading the word, of websites such as this: www.alleswirdgut.com I actually cried when reading and looking at her photos. And it's true what she says: They dont need your tears, they need your money! I am not going to pretend I have donated to this very worthy cause; I havent. I had to decide long ago not to donate to a specific cause long ago, as I end up giving everybody and torture myself feeling guilty about not giving to those I cant afford to.. My wish is to be rich when I am older, not so I can donate more n more (I will, but tats not my main dream), but so I can retire early, and spend my time volunteering .
Everyone should have at least one specific cause that they support with all their heart, and mne is the environment, simply because I can help, and it doesnt break me down as much and as easily as the above cases. So if you are stronger-hearted, please, help these children, these victims, and educate the public on what really happens, and bring humanity back into the world. Even by just writing bout it in your blog, on your facebook updates, or tweeting, will increase the world's knowledge, and increase the possibility of another person helping out. And you, yes you, who are financially stable, please please, dont hesitate to take a little out of your monthly salary to help a cause of your choice; there's so many out there, there must be one that especially touches your heart!
Ok, I've bounced around this page enough now, and this post would never end if I kept connecting the dots to more and more causes and rants.. I hope you actually get my point through all the jumping from here to there. To end on a happier note, life is great!! Enjoy it, and help others see the joy of living.. =)

N now, I hear that my brother has become a victim of pickpockets!! His phone, his life, was stolen in Centerpoint Sabah, while going to watch a movie at Growball Cinemax.. I think security needs to be tighter there, it's just not on!! Especially since a lady sitting behind him also had hers stolen!! 2 people, same time same place? I'm willing to bet there were at least a couple more people who had it happen to them too!!

With one of the makeup artists.. This is what I looked like.. They gave me a wig (cz my hair was a bit too short), and the makeup was to try to make me look older.. Haha..
Saturday, 14 November 2009
The next day, we checked out, then went to lunch with a couple of the 8tv crew (we really have become friends! =) )We actually had a date with our 'nanny' of the show, Siew Tyug (pronounced Tyng, dont ask ;p), but met Kitvy n Nicole halfway, so we all had lunch at.. Pasta Zanmai I think it was called.. It was good! =) We also came across ourselves in Faces magazine, pure accident, while looking for a diff mag, so that made our day.. =) Then we went to Pavilion to jalan-jalan, and as soon as we walked through the doors (n this made me feel like a star =D), 3 guys were walking towards us, when I heard "Eh, Maybelline Top 5!" and then "Bukanlah, Top 10". O.M.G. We were so messy as well, I cant believe we actually got recognized!! *Calista dances around just thinking about it*
Spent the night with Susie and her friends, then met up with Steffy the next day, to spend the weekend with her at her family house in Klang. I have to say, one of the most happiest times of the whole trip - save for the finals of course ;p -was with her in Klang. I like her family, they're all so nice! Plus, her mom's a great cook - u know wat a sucker I am for home-cooked food! =D We went out and had so much fun - she took me to eat Baskin-Robbins (she's an addict =p), clubbing at this great club in Sunway called Helo Bali (I love African music now - it's so cool to groove to!), to eat (she loves these steamboat/hotpot places.. and found out that her fave place is Thai, not Korean! *playfully whacks Stef over the head*), and we just had fun yapping as usual!! Mostly we were hanging with her bro Gary and cuz Scott.. She also surprised me when, the 1st night (she told me this on the car trip on the way there) was gonna be spent having a family dinner!! For some reason, I always get caught up in family dinners - lol!! But it was cool, I've met her whole extensive family now.. Haha.. I also was in the middle of her family's Deepavali lunch celebration, her mom cooked so much!! Unfortunately, I didnt eat that much because it was all spicy - hello, Deepavali, u expected Chinese food meh?? Hahaha.. But luckily her mom was understanding of wat a fuss-pot I can be when it comes to food.. Thank goodness!! I know a lot of people tak tahan with how picky I am.. *sob sob* I actually went back the next weekend, whee~!! And Steffy was trying to get her mom to adopt me - didnt work, wonder why? ;p
I also stayed with my old friend Wendy and her boyfriend Adrian, who were both so nice as to let me stay a second time (last trip I stayed for nearly 3 weeks!!) I feel so blessed to have such great friends.. I just feel like I shuld mention my thanks here, as I sometimes dont really know how to express my gratitude fully in person.. Nalin also let me be her roomie one more time before the finals - as soon as I arrived in KL I stayed at her place for 3 days, and the Fabulous 5 (Nalin, Stef, Sue, Preeta & myself) went clubbing at Changkat with Geetha, Parveen & Anuja for a very memorable night!!
I also helped coordinate an event with Moezik Singapore - old friends & my ex-boss, for YUM! That was so much fun, I miss coordinating events so much.. =( O well, hopefully one day I'll be able to get back into it.. It was great to be able to catch up with Amal, Alan & Moe.. Amal & I wasted no time & chatted into dawn the 1st night - We both got 2 hours sleep!! But it was worth it.. =D
Highlight for me was when Ray arrived.. It's so hard to be apart for 3 whole weeks, yet we've gotten through it twice, and it's only made us stronger.. =) We stayed in Summit Hotel in Subang after the YUM! event, and shopped our hearts out in Sunway etc.. We went to the All American Rejects concert, which... I am gonna tell you about next post!! Haha.. This post is way too long, and u prolly arent that interested, but I dont care, this is a journal post alright?? ;p
PS: Just wanted to thank Regina Ho & her friend for coming to support me during the finals, and not forgetting Kylie Bennington either.. =) It meant so much that you guys were there, thank you!!

See how happy I was?!?! Haha..
Group photos after the interviews
Friday, 6 November 2009
Saturday, 17 October 2009
Too bad tho, apparently it wasnt enough to win the challenge.. =( Yes, Preeta won.. No offense to anyone involved, but don't you think her photo was just normal, and so was the concept? I dont quite understand.. Sorry to sound like such a b*tch but.. Maybe it's just the competitive side of me.. Sigh.. I'm glad I was acknowledged though, that still meant a whole lot to me..
As you didnt see the post-interview of this challenge, this is basically what I said:
"I am so grateful for all the positive comments that Stevensunny has given me, and I accept his opinion on neve hiring short girls, even though he did say I had changed his mind when he was doing my personal judging.. BUT. I have to say I do not agree with the choice of winner for this challenge, no based on our photos (we didnt get to see each others' photos til the webisode), but by the final comments given.. I think he is giving out the wrong message to the public, by literally telling everyone that as long as ur tall n pretty, u can get watever u wan even if u have a sucky attitude; whereas the people who, like me, arent naturally born with "it" can never make it even if u work ur ass off. This is why I'm in the competition, to show people like Stevensunny that they are WRONG."
There was also other drama going on, but you'll have to see whether the other girls feel like writing bout it.. Muahaha...
Anyhoo, finals are TOMORROW!! I can't wait!! Remember to catch it at 10pm on 8tv!! And online I think.. ;p
Another blog post =) :
HAPPY DEEPAVALI TO ALL MY INDIAN FRIENDS~!!!
Friday, 16 October 2009
Challenge 2 ended with the winning team picking Nalin to join in their spa treatment prize, and a video of them all being massaged etc to make everyone else jealous.. Haha!! I wasnt so jealous really, as I dont like massages.. Lol.. I know I'm weird, but it's totaly ok!! ;p Of course I wanted to win just for the sake of winning la.. Nyehehe..
Challenge 3: I love the "previously on" part, cz I thought I looked nuts.. But I just noticed: Steffy looks nuttier!! Ahahahaha~!! Go, take a look.. ;p
We had our profile shoot, Levi's promo shoot and group shoot on the same day as Challenge 3.. To me, Stevensunny was very helpful and is a very nice man.. I wish I could have the chance to work with him sometime.. I'm so grateful for the positive comments he gave me after our short meeting!!
Syifa I think did quite an ok job on her shoot, her photo looks nice, and I think it captures what she was aiming for.. Bei Shan also had a very good idea, and she does have one of the prettiest faces!!
Zhareen looks oh-so-loveable during her shoot, she looks so cuddly n adorable!! Steffy unfortunately got some bad comments to frames into her shoot, so she couldnt focus well.. I'm not gonna mention what was said, but let's just say it wasnt wat d webisode put out!! =( But she was looking smoking hot during her shoot anyway!!
Diana, as always, looks so pretty.. I think she did a very good job at posing, dont u? =) Preeta of course has modeling experience, n as mentioned, she had a lot of good frames!! If only all my frames were as good!!
Nalin, my wonderful roomie, looked so funky, no? N her idea was a fun one: The world as her pet!! Kim had the same dream as Nalin: Travel show host, so she was looking fresh wif her mic n camera esp!!
Waiting for tonight people, as they saved the best til last: Susie & Calista's shoot!! It's gonna be hot hot HOT!!
Saturday, 10 October 2009
In the meantime, take a look at this vid pinkporkchop took of me.. Lol.. Those who know me, are gonna go crazy.. Haha..
I leave for KL soon.. Flight's been delayed. Sigh.. I would be checking in etc now if it hadnt been.. MAS smsed me 15 mins before check-in time.. Grr!! Luckily I was just leaving the house, else I wud've had to spend hours in the airport!!
Can't wait to meet up with at least half of the Fab babes!! Nalin, Steffy, Susie n Preets - I'm coming back to town!! ;p We're gonna have so much fun tonight!!
Friday, 9 October 2009

My thoughts go out to the 4 countries affected (namely Samoa, American Samoa, Tonga and Indonesia). Let us stop more disasters from happening, now. Natural disasters are not things we can stop, but we can do our part in preventing more from happening. We are killing the environment, and it is now showing proof of that, more n more each year. We may not be able to stop natural disasters, but let's at least stop man-made ones. Enough innocent people have died. Let's work together in saving this earth, it is, after all, the only one we have...
Wednesday, 30 September 2009
But when I was watching it, I was still LOLing.. The memories!! Haha.. We didnt really know each other yet at that time.. So when I was partnered with Diana, I had no idea wat to expect.. It was from that moment on I think, when we actually clicked.. I tell you, I think I nearly gave this girl a heart attack with my makeup skills.. Haha.. She had "shocked" written all over her face wenever she looked at me.. Ahahaha.. Hers was actually quite good.. Just a lil "draw the eyeliner on ur left eye a bit longer" etc comments from me were needed.. Whereas mine.. Well.. I guess u could see.. ;p
A friend of my PR manager a.k.a. Oliver has written a lovely post on her blog to support me in my race to become Maybelline Ny's Simply Fabulous Petite Model!! Do check it out n leave some kind comments!!
Thanks so much Jas!! =D
Unfortunately, my general manager/mentor a.k.a. S'Mal (Or Gummy Bear as she is now known.. Muahaha~) has not been able to get online.. *sobs* I need to talk to u woman!! Withdrawal symptoms!! =( She is the one who gave me my 1st stepping stone into this the modeling world, n gave me the knowledge I needed to know to equip myself for the brutalities of the industry.. She encouraged me when no one else would give me the time of day, but at the same time, never gave me false hope. If anyone can give you the right catwalk training, photographic training, or just knowledge on the modeling world, it's this woman. The modeling studio in Sabah is now only an agency, but she's still so eager to impart this knowledge to us younger generation, she has started a website where u can get the knowledge right in your own home!! Click this link to see and join, u will not be disappointed, that I promise you.
I'm on there too, drop me a message! ;p
Tuesday, 29 September 2009
As you can probably see.. I was laughing throughout the challenge.. Can't believe I was so incoherrent that they had to give me subtitles.. haha.. So what do u think? C'mon guys, give me some comments here, good or bad, i dont mind!! N with this webisode, you should have SOMEthing to say.. I mean, now this is where the REAL excitement starts!! =D Don't you agree that this is, the most entertaining yet? ;p N the flood of memories that came back.. Lovin n missin all the Fab gals n crew!!
I hope you're following this show n loving it as much as I do.. N stay tuned, cz there's way more to come.. Love to ALL.. xoxo
Oh, we have more write-ups!! Feel free to comment on their blogs everyone.. They're the one's giving us the publicity!! Plus, by commenting and entering their contests, u may win fabulous prizes!! ;p
So this webisode is more of a tutorial/Maybelline ad, but it's cool to watch all the same.. I ddt get much screen time (nobody did, but then, we were all learning something valuable), BUT if you look closely, I got EXTRA screen time.. Haha.. Confused? Then watch, watch the 2nd webisode AGAIN, closely this time, n u'll see what I mean.. ;p If u still can't c it, I'll reveal the answer when the 3rd webisode comes out..
Mysterious.. Enjoy!! =D

Wednesday, 23 September 2009
Lol.. Anyway.. Unfortunately, I cant find the article online to show you guys so.. If you can, get today's Harian Ekspress!! It's in the entertainment section.. =)
So it's the 3rd day of Eid.. Back to work tomorrow for most, but what I wanna know is, how did u spend the even first 2 days? For me, I'm like such a ditz. I didnt even realize it was the first day of Eid on Sunday.. I thought it was gonna be on Monday *whack forehead*. So anyhoo, yea, my eve was spent shopping with Ray's friend Michelle at Wisma Merdeka (I bought the black booties I've been eyeing for so long! Whee~!!) and then at night having a tantrum in Ray's room over plans gone haywire. Not gonna go into details, but let's say it wasnt pretty..
1st day the "heated discussion" continued, until finally we went out and watched
Back to my night. While waiting for the movie (11.20pm, n everywhere was closed in 1 Borneo), we went into a new bar to have a look around and Ray had a drink. Met Yenni n Vivian there, so that was a pleasant surprise. Ice Bar it's called. Now, anyone who knows me knows bars arent my type of place: I don't drink and there's no dance floor, what else can I say? But the worst thing was, they had these 4 girls (GIRLS, not even women! They looked about 18!) dressed in tiny sparkly stuff, dancing on little platforms in each corner of the room! That's bad enough, but to add on that 1. they werent pretty, 2. they didnt have good bodies, and 3. I dont even dance well but I could do better than them!! Basically they were just there as eye-candy, but sorry to say, no one was even paying attention to them! Sigh.. What future do these girls have, if they're bar dancers at 18? Imagine if you went into a bar and saw your daughter up there? *shame* N what I don't understand is, why this is allowed (apparently most bars have them now), when even the VMAs were censored? Makes no sense at all.. ...
... Ok, I'm ranting again. *stop it Calista*
2nd day I had dim sum at Foo Phing for b'fast, yum! Then shopping with Michelle again at cp, then she bought a new cam at Karamunsing. Man, this gal can spend!! Haha.. I had fun watching her, even though I didn't have that much stuff to buy myself.. =D Later on, we had steamboat/bbq buffet at Nelayan, Taman Tun Fuad, and stuffed ourselves with so many prawns, I can't even remember how many plate-fulls we had!! Finished off the night with a yamcha session at Alex's cafe in Lintas, Frenz Cafe, and poof!! Goodbye Hari Ray hols, n goodbye Michelle (she left early d next morn, back to Sandakan).
So that was my boring holiday (Geez, I know, even a boring holiday can be such a long post; punya longwinded!! ;p). Tell me bout urs? D cookies? D duit raya? D open houses? *sniffles* I want!!

For reasons beyond my control, I have not been able to travel out of Malaysia since I came here from England when I was 7 years old.. *sob* So instead, what I did was travel all over Sabah!! Haha.. N if I don't get to travel out of the country soon, be prepared to see me in every state in M'sia~!! Cz I get bored. I dont sit still. N I wanna see places I've never seen before!! So if anyone wants to sponsor me *ahem*, please do let me know!! ;p
But no matter what happens, if, sorry, WHEN (gotta stay positive ;p) I win Maybelline Simply Fabulous, I will go to New York, n finally break free in the land of liberty!! Wahahahaha~!! You see how excited I am? Cant u just feel it? Well in that case, please please please help me achieve my dream, n VOTE for me starting 28th Sept!! It only takes up 30% of the results (70% is based on judges), but hey, 30% is 30% nearer to my goal, n 30% nearer to travelling to the US of A!! When I come back, who knows where I'll go? But I can promise you this: Be prepared for many more stories and photos from around the world.
Love you ppl!! Xoxo *wink*

You are so yummy, I can even eat your skin..
I love you roasted, mashed, fried, steamed, baked...
I love you on your own, in soup, with butter, with gravy, with salt and vinegar...
Any way you are prepared, you will always be my favourite...
Ah - Potatoes.
I could have you every day and not get bored.
Your creamy texture, I cannot refuse;
Your sweet fragrance, I cannot deny.
I feel I'm in heaven every time I taste you;
Oh my! I'm addicted; obsessed!
Ah - Potatoes!

So anyway, I had this note on facebook titled "My Kind Of Guy". It's 1 of those Q & A notes that are makin their rounds on fb and I was bored and I was tagged, so I gave it a go. This was a few days ago. All of a sudden, this random guy who I DONT EVEN KNOW put a comment "bullxxxx" on it. So I checked his profile. The only mutual friend we had was another SF contestant. So I commented back, thinking he wouldnt be stupid enough to reply. It went something along the lines of "Erm, excuse me (his name), were you invited to view this note? Ur not even on my frens list, and no1 wants ur opinion here." Hey, I wasnt rude was I? So after a few minutes he replies again: "bullxxxx...2". I couldnt b bothered, so I just blocked him, n deleted the comments. Then I called my fren n told her about it. I think she has the right to know. He's ruining her name by doing stuff like this, n I'd just like him to know, if he comes across this, that all 10 of us are frens. Yea we're in a competition, but we're FRENS n we dont go around tryin to badmouth the others, so wat right do u have to do it?
Anyway, not gonna waste my time on it. A fren n I decided he must'v not qualified with the 50 criteria that was my note, so he got mad at himself. Haha.. Stalkers.. Sad. But we were warned, and I guess we'll have to get used to ppl putting us down.. Tats wat reality shows are for rite? N i'm not taking my silly / ugly photos off fb, cz I am who I am, n anyway, I'd rather ppl take em off my site than finding them later on.. Hihii~

I support women and children not being abused. Whether physically, mentally, sexually... Abuse scars a person for life. Say NO to violence. Never abuse another being. Never allow the abuse to continue by keeping quiet, whether it is happening to you, or someone else. As heard on hitz fm: "Your silence is as bad as the abuse." http://www.wao.org.my/index.htm

Now, anyone who knows me knows that I can take a joke, especially when it's about myself. Hell, I'm usually the one making them. But there is such a thing as too much, and there are ways to say things without blatantly trying to put me down all the time. Let's see, what do you "joke" about? Well let's start with the obvious shall we? I know I'm short, but can you please accept the fact that I am 100% ok with my height? If I don't have a problem with it, what's yours? As I always say, if your not as tall as my dear friend Sharin, who is 5' 11" btw, then shut up. 5' 4" does not make you "tall". 5' 6" does not make you "model-like". It just makes you average. And if you go somewhere like say the USA, you will be short, get it? Average height there is 5' 7". Which you don't reach. The only qualms I have with my height, which I freely make public knowledge, is when a) I see clothes that I can't wear, b) I think about the fact that I will never be a runway model. But let's face the facts: neither will you. FYI, average height accepted for runway is 5' 8". Way below it, bitches. So if you just blend in with the crowd cz you're just the same height as everyone else, why the pride? At least people notice me cz I'm special.
Another "favourite" of you gals is my weight. Another FYI: I'm not fat. Just cz I have boobs, an ass and an actual body shape, don't get all up in my face. Sure, my tummy's more bloated than yours, but let me assure you that my tummy is not what people look at when I go out. Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying I'm perfect. I know I can afford to lose some weight, and I do want to. But I would never trade up my little flaws for a stick of a body like yours. If I'm gonna get slimmer, I'm gonna damn well make sure my "assets" stay put too. Oh, and while we're on the subject, having a bra size 36 does not mean you have actual boobs. Just means you've go a wide back. Cup size counts, airheads; not the 32/34/36 you seem to be so happy about, it's the A/B/C/D cup. Or in most of you gals' cases, the AA cup. Let's put it this way. If my body was so bad, would you keep mentioning it? Do you mention the fat gal's weight everytime you go out? I don't think so.
I find it amazing that you gals can not even know each other, yet can all do/say the same kind of things. Why the insecurity? Why do you need to put me down when it's so obvious that yes, you are taller and slimmer than me. Doesn't make you hotter, sorry. N to the few that say it out of spite? Bitch, please. Get a life. As I said, I can take a joke. And it's not everyone who makes me feel this way. Just a few "friends" I have in my life. Other than when they say it so poisonously, I don't mind at all (except when you make the same comment/joke over and over. Then I just feel bored and irritated).
This Calista bitch sounds arrogant, you say? Well I'm just sick of taking insults from others and brushing them off, while the same gals can't take the tiniest of jokes and become all defensive if you say the slightest thing about them. Just a little piece of advice: Do NOT make my inner bitch surface. Believe me, this post will look like I'm complimenting you.

I believe that animals deserve to be treated as another living creature. I have never, and will never, mistreat an animal, and do my part in helping strays find a better home. http://www.spcakk.org/
