Ignorance is not bliss, please

Initially, I sat staring at my laptop thinking of what to write when I came across JeanJean's comment and out of curiosity, decided to check out her blog just as well. All was fine till I read one topic of hers that made me hit the roof.

She mentions that she received a comment from a certain ignorant person that she was "plastic" with all the chemicals she uses. Chemicals from cosmetics it seems. Read it here.

Unlike JeanJean, I never took Chemistry and I was never in the Science stream to begin with but at least E and I tried our very best to understand the chemicals and ingredients used in the products we use on our face and try to avoid those that is really harmful to us. We studied science in Bahasa Malaysia so it was hard for us to understand all the ingredients at first.

At this very point of our life, almost everything we eat, put on our face, hair to the clothes we wear and wash has something to do with chemicals.

As soon as we wake up, brush our teeth, we're already consuming and using chemicals all to the night when we wash our face with whatever brand face cleanser. I will take back my words only if you do not brush your teeth, wash your face/body/hair with soap, wear clothes that has been bleached, dyed whatever in chemicals, wear tampons or sanitary pads etc.

It made me realize that despite the internet and all, there are still very ignorant people in this world. Believe me, I too have met a fair share of them.

It occurs to me that for someone to open their mouth and say things like that, it's can only be from someone who probably doesn't use cosmetic or has little or no knowledge on cosmetics.

The year is now 2009, take a look at your handphone now. What do you see? Is it black and bulky, weight close to 10kg, the size of a briefcase and cost you about RM10k? If you do, wow! I'm super impressed, so did you teleported yourself to 2009 or are you just totally out of date?

Time change and so does the things around us, gone are the days are handphones capable of being a nutcracker or what you use to crush crab shells and computer the size of your entire room. [Note: computer as in singular not plural]

A person who sits down browsing through people's blog and then accuse them of being plastic or using too much make up or wasting money on 'useless' items such as cosmetic are extremely ignorant people.

Ignorance is no longer bliss

This is not the stone age, the female species no longer get club on the head with a stick, dragged by our hair, presented with some fancy rock Mr.Man found and considered married. This is also not the age where your parents cry pitifully when they have a daughter, prepare a dowry so that someone would actually want to marry you and literally worry to death if you're not married by the time you're 18 and by 21 you can consider yourself "Si kiam chai"

If the above is NOT true and that you still do get club on the head by a guy and that your parents cry pitifully because you don't have a ding dong between your legs and you are already considered "lou ku poh" at the age of 21,
