sha: i'm not blind!


see the world
Originally uploaded by rolala photo
When I received an e-mail with font 18 yesterday, I was furious. The person who sent it to me had intention and that was too obvious!!!

I am officially a girl with spectacle beginning March 2010. Yes, the Specky Sha. I have been wearing spectacle - off and on since I was 15 years old but I have never thought that my eyes will eventually score 350 for lenses. Welcome to the blurry world, Sha. I can't take off my glasses anymore, said the specialists!

Choosing the spectacle was not easy. My round face and tudung has made it difficult for my face not to look too smug. Eventually I chose a half-frame spectacle. Actually, that was not my choice either. It was my parents'. They told me to choose that instead of the other. My chubby cheeks were not helping during the selection process:(

My first impression? I thought I definitely looked ugly. Yo Soy Sha La Fea!

What does it means by Yo Soy Sha La Fea? Literally, it means, "I'm Sha, The Ugly One". This is a translation from Spanish to English based on my limited reading. But I guess the meaning was correct; considering that I learned both the statement and its translation from the drama series itself - Yo Soy Betty La Fea (click to know more about the Columbian drama)

Betty Solano was a smart girl who used to adore her boss, Armando. I hate Betty. One, because she had a crush with her boss and secondly because she changed herself for him. She had this diary about Armando and she used to cry at night when Armando chose his fiance, Marcella. I mean, I watched this drama until the end when I was young but I didn't know I would be this critical as I grew older. Looking back, I am wondering why I was so stupid to even watch Betty. Office crush, undivided devotion until one lost her own personality were definitely WRONG.

But that was what I have been doing for several years, wasn't it? So yes, I was indeed a Betty. (oh, sh*t). The only difference was that the Armando fell for me first (which made me less Betty than I think I was). So, I was not really a Betty.

Then there was a Betty Suarez from the Ugly Betty. She is more confident and realistic; comfortable with her own way of dressing, she is not slim and she values her family. Plus, she is smart and creative in her own nerdy ways! She doesn't want to be anyone, she just wanted to be herself.

So, do I want to be like this Betty? Perhaps. After all, it is better than being Manjalara (another specky character in a Malay drama;starred Emelda Rosmilla).

This is because...

Fat is not stupid. Specky is not stupid either. Betty proves it!

And Sha wanted to prove it too. When her handsome boss (who thankfully does not portray Daniel Meade in Ugly Betty at all!) asked her to reply the e-mail yesterday, she tried to use her brain. She controlled her anger, type an e-mail in normal font and did her research well. Alhamdulillah, things went well. At least up to the time I am typing this posting.

After all, Betty has Henry.
So where is Sha's Henry then?
She is going to a corporate dinner this weekend. Maybe she'll find Henry there?

Oh, come on. Be realistic, Sha. Life is no drama:)
