What is so special about Lingshuwen.blogspot.com?
#1 Content is King
No one writes funny posts better than Shuwen. Don't believe me? See Team Edward, Team Jacob. I'm so over Edward Cullen right now, even if he's handsome, strong and glitter under the Sun. Trust me, I like diamonds better.
#4 Gorgeous Photos
#5 Giving Back To The Society
Shuwen actually sold her dolls to collect money for a local Cancer patient who's only in his teens. Her actions really touched me. It also made me reflect on what I've done to contribute to the society or help someone in need. Read What were you when you were 12 ?
Lingshuwen.blogspot.com is a blog filled with highly entertaining content and gorgeous photos while never lacking of sarcastic, witty remarks infused with shades of deeper meaning - in short, it's simply amazing!

I did very badly in the Math test, but I'm sure I got 2 correct answers out of 25 questions. The others were all wrong. :o)
The English test was divided into 2 sections. One is a comprehension where you have to answer all the answers and write a summary on the topic and the other one requires you to write an essay of at least 380 words in 30 seconds. Totally crazy. I just finished two paragraphs when the examiner announced "10 minutes left!". My essay was ended hastily with incorrigible words and a paragraph that has actually no meaning at all. I was totally blabbering.
Today, I sat for the general ability or IQ test, where candidates were required to finish 48 questions in 20 minutes. Yep, you heard me. 20 minutes! But I have a feeling that this one is better than the previous two because it's easier, though the last few were very challenging and I didn't have enough time to do them and simply darken one of the answers.
Before the tests, I saw many anxious parents filling up the room, waiting for their sons and daughters to enter the examination center. Some of them even took pictures of their children as if wanting to capture this glorious moment for remembrance in the future.
Well, I don't have high hopes in the ASEAN scholarships, and considering my terrible answers for the Maths test, I'm sure my chance is gone for good. I would rather think of it as a chance to gain experience and knowing new friends.

A group of Malaysian women launched an "Obedient Wife Club" on Saturday, urging members to be "whores in bed" and obey their husbands to curb social ills like divorce and domestic violence.
Islamic group Global Ikhwan held the club's inaugural meeting in Kuala Lumpur, giving women tips on how to keep their men satisfied and prevent them straying.
"A good wife is perceived to be prim and proper -- you just take care of the children -- but not much is emphasised on fulfilling sexual needs of the husband. If he needs sex, obey him," Rohaya Mohamad, the club's vice-president told AFP.
Rohaya said 30 percent of the club members were in polygamous marriages while the rest were in monogamous relationships and that the club was open to non-Muslims.
"You must satisfy your husband. A good wife should be a whore in bed," said 46-year-old doctor, whose husband has three other wives.
She said the club boasted 800 Malaysian members so far with another 200 from across the Middle East.
Over 1,000 guests and supporters turned up for the launch in a leafy suburb, held in conjunction with a mass wedding of ten couples, with the brides all members of the new club.
"If the wife is obedient, then the husband feels good and is entertained and this builds a closer relationship and greater love and no one strays," said groom Mohamad Shurahbil Amran, 23.
His bride Umuhani Lokman Hakim, 19, dressed in a golden white Arabic wedding gown, was unforthcoming when asked why she joined the club and would only say: "It is the right thing to do to keep the family together."
The club has come under criticism from Malaysian women's groups who say the onus on keeping a family together is being unfairly placed on women.
"With obedience comes submission, which may lead to domestic violence and marital rape," Women's Aid Organisation head Ivy Josiah told AFP.
"We should really be forming equality in marriage clubs," she added.
Women's rights group EMPOWER said the club was a step back for the progress of the equality movement.
"We cannot go back to caveman days where the man pulls the woman by the hair and takes her to the cave to have his way. We must recognise that women contribute a lot more than just being a sex toy," the group's executive director Maria Chin Abdullah told AFP.
Polygamy is legal for Muslims, who make up more than 60 percent of Malaysia's population, allowing Muslim men to take up to four wives.
In 2010, a study by a Muslim activist group found men in polygamous relationships find it difficult to meet the needs of all their wives and children, and that the result is often unhappy and cash-strapped families.

I think the founding idea of this club is unreasonable. It amazes me how many women are still thinking things the wrong way. Women need to rise and protect their own rights in sexual equality, not blaming themselves for their husbands' betrayal. They never think it is unfair for a man to have many wives as it is legal according to Muslim laws. They never think it is unfair for a man to have other sexual partners besides his legal wives. They never think it is unfair for a woman to endure her husband's beatings and other barbaric acts. The world is constantly changing, and these women are promoting an idea that is obviously far back in the ancient period, if not the caveman's period. Wake up, ladies! Don't let your ignorance push you further into self-condemnation.
