Don't want to write anything serious today.
Been writing those in the past few postings.
A bit depressing, I think.
I need to cheer up a bit.
Today, I just want to comment a bit about people whom I noticed were trying too hard to be cute.
Some worked out fine, but others, unfortunately failed miserably.
After all, we are not Japanese who are mostly a bunch of naturally cute people.
I'm not actually very cute myself, but I think I know a bit about these sorts of things.
Being cute is nice, but some people are simply not meant to be like that.
It has something to do with the person's character and maybe the conditioning of his/her life.
If those who are not meant to be cute try to be so, they tend to end up being just irritating.
At least, that's according to my observation.
This is an example;
Claiming to be a "Sassy MP" was clearly an attempt at being cute, but in this case, I don't think it really worked.
Theresa Kok did win with a huge majority in her Chinese-majority constituency in the last general election, but that's not because she is cute, okay.
She won because the Chinese at that time felt that her MCA rival is a stooge of the hated Umno.
Miss Kok is simply not the cute type.
Actually, I think I'm cuter then her. Seriously. And I'm not even trying to be cute like her.
I think the lady would be better off being the serious no nonsense type.
It suits her better.
Miss Kok shouldn't really worry about projecting such an image because some men do prefer the domineering serious type like that, instead of the cute ones.
Ask Lim Guan Eng, if you don't believe me.
In fact, I think if Miss Kok manages to get one of those men to really like her accordingly, she may then actually be cute and sassy without even putting any effort whatsoever....if you know what I mean :)
Well, I actually sympathise with all those try-too hard-but-failed-to-be-cute ladies.
I don't really know what made them think that being cute is such a good idea when being so does not suit their personality.
For instance, you can't be a grumpy venomous person and be cute at the same time.
It just doesn't work that way, okay.
This applies even for blogging.
It just doesn't work trying to be cute but still being spitefully bitchy at the same time.
I cringed every time I see anyone tries to do that...such as whacking someone and trying to make the readers like it by putting cute cartoon characters to go with it.
I was like....
Hmmm, I'm simply lost for words whenever I see that sorts of thing.
Supremely irritating beyond measure, okay.
The best, I think is still being oneself.
You can't go wrong with that.
Of course, trying to make ourselves likable is good, but I think we should stay in character to do it.
Anyway, I don't really subscribe to the idea that we (especially ladies) have to be cute to make people like us....or like what we write.
Just try to be a good person with a relatively clean heart should be enough, I think.
