The reason that I trust these people, above all others, is that they know what a good day feels like, and they revel in it because they also know what a very bad day feels like. They know what it is to love the feel of sunshine and what it is to detest it and what it is to wish that you had no idea how to love or detest anything. They know that a good day means feeling something, going 24 hours without the panicky rush of heat all over your body, and feeling content enough to do the things you love. They also know that a bad day means feeling so profoundly unhappy that you can almost feel the cloud, that deep shadow of darkness following you, into the shower, into the kitchen, into your car or onto the bus. They know that a bad day means trying and failing to grapple with an intense desire to simply not exist.

It’s the rosebuds that captured my imagination. I like to think that it symbolizes hope, growth and all things new.

So many of us, when we leave our home countries, want to escape ourselves. We build up enormous webs of people, of bars and coffee shops, of arguments and exes and the same five places over and over again, from which we feel we can’t break free. There are just too many bridges that have been burned, or love that has turned sour and ugly, or restaurants at which you’ve eaten everything on the menu at least ten times — the only way to escape and to wipe your slate clean is to go somewhere where no one knows who you were, and no one is going to ask. And while it’s enormously refreshing and exhilarating to feel like you can be anyone you want to be and come without the baggage of your past, you realize just how much of “you” was based more on geographic location than anything else.

Walking streets alone and eating dinner at tables for one — maybe with a book, maybe not — you’re left alone for hours, days on end with nothing but your own thoughts. You start talking to yourself, asking yourself questions and answering them, and taking in the day’s activities with a slowness and an appreciation that you’ve never before even attempted. Even just going to the grocery store — when in an exciting new place, when all by yourself, when in a new language — is a thrilling activity. And having to start from zero and rebuild everything, having to re-learn how to live and carry out every day activities like a child, fundamentally alters you. Yes, the country and its people will have their own effect on who you are and what you think, but few things are more profound than just starting over with the basics and relying on yourself to build a life again. I have yet to meet a person who I didn’t find calmed by the experience. There is a certain amount of comfort and confidence that you gain with yourself when you go to this new place and start all over again, and a knowledge that — come what may in the rest of your life — you were capable of taking that leap and landing softly at least once.

Ling’s latest project “Fashion in Leaves” takes art, fashion, and nature in a direction we could have never imagined! More after the jump:

Rencana - Anak Melayu, bangkitlah! – Shazuan Ali @ Tue May 07 2013

"Mungkin kite lupa bahawa PAS & PKR memenangi sebanyak 51 kerusi parlimen dan kebanyakan calon mereka adalah orang islam berbangsa Melayu. Dicampur pula dengan bilangan kerusi 103 kerusi parlimen yang dimenangi UMNO, jadi jumlah keseluruhan adalah 154 kerusi. Jadi dari mana datangnya informasi masyarakat cina menguasai politik negara?" 

"Sebagai contoh yang jelas dan mudah, kawasan berpenduduk bermajoriti masyarakat Cina iaitu di parlimen Pandan di mana keputusan pilihanraya memihak kepada calon berketurunan Melayu iaitu saudara Rafizi Ramli dengan majoriti yang sangat besar dan tidak kepada calon yang berketurun Cina bernama Gary Lim dari parti MCA. Dari sini jelas menyatankan suara rakyat suara keramat yang kian jelas menolak politik perkauman sekali gus cukup untuk mematikan tuduhan “Cina nak kuasai politik Malaysia”!" 

"Kenapa dengan mudah anak Melayu mempercayai yang suatu hari nanti negara ni menjadi negara di mana agama rasminya adalah Kristian dan yang paling popular di kalangan anak Melayu, “nanti Cina nak hapuskan hak keistimewaan melayu”.

Sahabat, kalau kita baca dan kaji kita pasti tahu perkara mudah ini. Perlembagaan Malaysia itu bersifat kebal. Sehinggakan, sebagai contoh yang mudah difahami, jika ada perkara yang al-quran kata salah, tapi dalam perlembagaan mengatakan ia tidak salah, maka perkara itu secara rasminya adalah tidak salah. Begitulah kebalnya perlembagaan Malaysia dan sifat kekebalan itu pun sudah cukup untuk kita faham bukan mudah untuk perlembagaan kita dipinda.  Jelas?”
