I write this in response to the recent protest against Ahok in Jakarta because it.is.freaking.absurd. I also write this because the incident reminded me of the Chinese-Indonesian Riot I experienced in 1998.

I thought maybe, I thought too highly of myself, thinking I am capable of being a somebody when I still am a nobody.
It took me a week of googling and reading people’s answers from Quora to realize this one very important thing – realizing my worth.

They have 103k + followers (oops almost thought it was a million!) on Instagram and constantly appear on my newsfeed, making it really hard for me not to feel tempted.
And so I was really excited when Mel gave it to me!
