Word of the Day: Considerate

so a few days ago, i was reminiscing on my internship days which was what.. 2 years ago? omg. rinduuuu!!!

ok anywayyyssss,
i did my internship in KL.
so everyday, i'd park my car at Kelana Jaya LRT station, hop on the train till KLCC, and then walk about 1000miles so i can see you, tonite (ting ting ting ting ting bunyi piano lagu 1000miles by whatsernameiforgot).

in the lrt, i hardly ever got to sit down because it's always full and when there's a vacant seat, i usually just leave them be.
let them old and more in need of the seat sit.

but then, many many times, i saw people younger than me, sanggup berebut for a seat.
zaman noob i dulu, i too sibuk nak berebut seat. doesnt matter where la. in the lrt ke, bus ke, anywhere where there're seats, i wanna sit. that was when i was not reminded to be thoughtful of others. 

but as i grew up, i realised that i am young. i am able. i am fortunate to have strong limbs.
so i have absolutely no excuse to say that i'm more tired than everybody else, or i deserve to sit or whatever.

so that's how i came about this video.
as a reminder to you youngsters, which doesnt necessarily means budak sekolah sahaja. you feel young? then you're a youngster.
be kind to others, be thoughtful, be considerate. 
IN PUBLIC PLACES!

i think later later i'll make a video of being considerate in a different scenario. heeeee! =D



ps: if these people whom you've helped didnt show any signs of appreciation, then biarlah! why should you be bothered?
you wanna help kan? 
should be ikhlas isn't it? so whether or not these people acknowledge it, don't worry. Insyallah Allah SWT does.

=)
peace.

pps: OH, thank you to all you Singaporeans who told me, shea and yanny about ILovePastelina.com being featured in Berita Harian Singapore! check it out at Shea's blog HERE! saya selaku self-proclaimed duta pastelina ingin mengucapkan CONGRATS to my bebehs! =D hehe!

'azlahmohdazhar said...

beeeettuttuull..
kesian kat pregnant women, handycaps, women with baby n etc.

kadang2 buat dunno je org2 dalam train tu. isk3.

tp lagi geram bila lelaki naik women coach..
pastu buat muka tak bersalah. duduk plak tu. pang sebijik.

Cha Gloxinia said...

Yeahhh you're right! Youngest people should be considerate to the elders. Pity to pokcik2 & mokcik2 yang terpaksa berdiri walhal orang2 muda yang duduk especially budak-budak. this is based on my experience. btw im your new follower. really enjoy reading ur blog! its AWESOME okayyyy! :D

some inconsiderate people were telling jokes about "whereabouts ultraman, gaban and power rangers during the earthquake that strikes japan on mac 11 2011".

NOT Funny AT ALL and such a inconsiderate bitc* huh? --> http://beautifulnara.com/bila-fizz-fairuz-buat-kelakar-yang-tak-berapa-kelakar-pasal-tsunami-jepun/

Huda said...

saya suka la awak vlog. Awak antara vlogger Malaysia yg natural depan kamera, pada pendapat saya. Harap awak boleh rakam lebih banyak video. :D

Tapi betul la, dengan sedikit pertolongan je mungkin dapat mengubah nasib seseorang. Mungkin kalau kita tak bagi seat kat perempuan mengandung, apa pulak jadi kat dia nanti?

Anyway, love your blog, keep up the great work :D

keykeyshinee said...

Dear maria,I da baca ttg blog u & everything about u , & i love you, really♥ but i have one favour.
I am 15, & slalunye i nmpk pmpn pkai tudung buat muka nmpk matured sbb cara pemakaian dia. i baru nk start pkai tudung, ASAP la but i taknak la nmpak cm uumo 25 if pkai . so, if bole, could you please make a tutorial utk pkai tudung yg sesuai dgn my age . please?

lisa said...

cool gila and really agreed :)

Ainee Cumi said...

Kelakar gila rasa nak share satu dunia.

Considerate tu sangat perlu ok and I pun tak paham orang yang tak bertimbangrasa ni. Cuba kalau orang lain buat kat dia haa tau marah.

syaf said...

the most hilarious video i've seen this year haha.. and yes, i agree. please be considerate of people around you ;)

Mariella Liyana said...

Haha...love the vid :D
I soOoOo can relate.

I was one of those good samaritans who gave up my LRT seat to pregnant ladies, elderly people and mommies with young kids...

But a funny thing happened, I gave up my seat for this pregnant lady. I went up to her to offer my seat...and...she she replied:

"Eh dik, akak tak pregnant!"

Oopsssiee!!!
LOL!
