Poem: To Be Truly Loved

Are we merely The sum of Our body parts?   Admired solely For the tautness Of our behinds Rather than The depths Of our minds   Prized simply For the fullness Of our bosoms Rather than The richness Of our hearts   Coveted For the curvature Of our form And the pleasure Of our sex But not quite The content Of our character    Our inner beauty Banished into the shadows Along with ...

A Single Mother’s Perspective on Dating, Love and Marriage

For starters, I am a single mother. (If it is not clear, by now) I got divorced more than 10 years ago. People laugh at me or gasp in disbelief when I share that I have not dated for over 10 years. It is only recently that I've come out of my "cold storage" to re-join the dating ...

Rust and Bone: Portrait of a Human Journey

Whenever I travel, I usually pack a "mini-library". However, in this trip I have managed to leave behind my beloved books by accident. They are still sitting on my bedside table in Malaysia, as we speak. Hence, in the absence of my travelling library, I resorted to watching movies online. And thanks to a new ...

THE RIGHT TO LOVE AND MARRY THE PERSON WE CHOOSE

As of now, Gay Rights and Equality are being debated all across the USA. To hear/read the words GAY RIGHTS in the same sentence as the US Supreme Court is something I did not imagine I'd live to see.

Finally, a summary that we can all identify with. Of course, I am speaking from a woman's point of view. Although the author, who also happens to be a woman, entitled her piece as "10 Things Everyone Hates About Sex", it is mostly encapsulated from a girl's perspective - at least, that is what I ...

SEX IS ON MY MIND: AN HONEST DIALOGUE

YES, SEX IS ON MY MIND. Quite a lot lately, to be honest. Yes, seriously. It's all because of the"disturbing" and "interesting" articles I have been reading online. The "disturbing" reveals a rather "damaging" data on how porn is affecting the relationships between men and women, and how men's sexuality are warped by internet porn. The "interesting" articles offer insights and even possible solutions ...

Woman, Wife, Whore & Spirituality – Part One

Realization came, late and still unwelcomed. I am not present. Not in my newly renovated apartment, not eating dinner in my parents' house, not checking my daughter's homework and finding out how she is coping with her new school. Not involved with my dad's companies. Not catching up with my close friends in Bangsar. Not madly rushing from the airport ...
