Just won't give up

Facebook is being widely used these days so I think we all should exercise precaution when accepting friend's requests and also not revealing too much personal information.

Surely we'll receive friend's requests on and off and for myself, there're these several people who came requesting as friend over and over again, even after I've rejected the requests =_= Til the extend I directly delete the request when I see it's the same person (even though we have some mutual friends).

*for illustration purpose only*

You see I don't simply accept requests (call me one kind, lansi or whatever) unless I know that person or he/she leaves a personal message of who he/she is (may be he/she is a friend of my friend or may be we've seen each other before). And I won't simply add others as friends just because they're popular but in actual fact we don't know each other (or I'll at least include a personal message).

I mean, no doubt FB is a great way to keep in touch with people from everywhere but if too much, that's not the meaning of it already. It's not that we're competing to see who has the highest number of friends......

And one more thing I'd like to share is, some people are just weird. They came requesting as friend but they keep their profile limited (so you can't see their infor and other photos of their faces), and worse of all, the profile picture is a cat/dog/scenery/a celebrity face/a quote and you-name-it! And they also don't include any message telling who they are. Funny don't you think?

Have you encounter similar cases? What's the key thing that make you accept that request if you don't know him/her? Mutual friends?

p/s: This post is just to share my personal experience and not intend to offense anyone.

  2. No, you're right- you have your own right to protect your privacy - much what you said here's true - I mean on FB, anyone can sometimes disguise as others & potentially hanky panky or ill element. You can set your own standard of accepting friend's request :-)

    but it's kinda indication of your popularity based on what you said here but yeap definitely not competition who have the most friends either

  3. I don't ignoring someone request to be your friend on FB whom you don't know is lansi. You are doing the right thing. I agree with Daniel, pretty girls like you sure get lots of friend request lah. hehe

  4. I like blogging and facebook but indeed, you should not accept any friendship request if the person is not showing his own name. This is certainly the case for children who are more open for inappropriate influences.Good article.

  5. Hayley,
    I know how you feel. I too dont accept people without a proper face. those who hide behind an icon, cartoon or what ever. if they are afraid to show their real face, then I doubt their intention of making friends. For acquaintant, I will only approved them if I had met them for at least three times. Some of course whom i met during my outdoor activity , our of convenience I accept them because i need to tag them or they have tag themselves. easier they tag themselves rather than I having to approve every request for the photos they tag. Over a certain period if they don't keep in touch or even say hello it's goodbye when it comes to spring cleaning.

  9. I share your concern, too. I do housekeeping on my friends list and delete those on pending list.

    I don't simply accept new friends, unless we know each other.

2D1N Hatyai trip

I have been to Hatyai many times and I am not bored of it yet, haha!! xD
It's one of my favorite place to go, I mean considering the fact that I can't really travel oversea at the moment (no money and no time).
But traveling to Hatyai is still consider 'oversea' la right? 😆 It's just that we go there by car instead of plane.... Just 2 hours plus to reach kastam, almost like from Taiping to KL.

We had a short getaway to Hatyai last month, it was 2 days after the Songkran festival. We tagged Aden and Toby along so hubby suggested to avoid that festival.

Journey was smooth from Taiping all the way to the kastam, just the queue at the kastam was a bit tiring. We managed to check in early, lucky!

We stayed at Grand Pink hotel, I simply love this hotel because the room is big and clean! Staff service is nice too! Highly recommended, heard it's been refurnished lately. It's located next to Lee Garden Plaza so it's easy to find!
I also love the spacious bathro…

The unwelcomed birthday presents

(Note: Quite a long post, I skipped my afternoon nap to write this so please read everything ya!! xDD)


Past 2 weeks were really exhausting for me.

It all started on 20th April when Aden developed a mild fever, he was tired and sleepy, I let him skipped school for 2 days.

He seldom takes afternoon nap, when he does, it means he is not feeling well :(

The next day, it was Toby's turn😢
Poor boy, his temperature reached 39° and it was on and off~
Then I notice he started to have these cute double eyelids for a few days~ Haha not sure why~
He was feeling really unwell, very lethargic, no appetite and super duper clingy to me!

Then both brothers started to cough badly 😢😢 
So on the 25th, I brought them to the pediatrician again.  He examined both boys and suspected it could be pneumonia and even dengue (because their fever were on and off). Suggested to get admitted right away.
I wasn't sure if that's necessary because I knew once admitted, have to stay for at least 5 days (h…
