I love cooking, reading, tea, and music. I mostly reblog K-pop, especially SNSD, Miss A and f(x).
I'm also into politics, current events, feminism, anti-racism, and vegetarian food. I'm currently trying to find out more about East and Southeast Asian history in a futile attempt to both recover from 12 ish years of eurocentric schooling and learn more about my ~culture's~ history.
Well that's me in a nutshell, hope you enjoy your stay :)
Yunalis Mat Zara’ai, or simply Yuna, hails from Malaysia where she was born into a family that would often move around the country due to her father’s work. During her law studies Yuna started releasing music via MySpace and got a following large enough to garner the interest of both Malaysian and American record labels. Since 2008 she’s been recording her music and touring the world.
By now she has collaborated with among others Pharrell Williams (N.E.R.D) and Adam Young (Owl City). She lists Feist, Bob Dylan and The Cardigans as her influences.
2002: Ford suggested that instead of having a “public meeting” about locating a homeless shelter in his district, “Why don’t we have a public lynching?”
February 2003: Ford went on a tirade at a city council meeting, calling a colleague a “slithering snake” who belongs in the zoo. The city council meeting quickly devolved into absolute chaos, by Canadian standards.
June 2006: Ford votes against AIDS funding, saying “If you are not doing needles and you are not gay, you wouldn’t get AIDS probably, that’s bottom line.”
March 5, 2008: During a city hall debate, Ford says: “Those Oriental people work like dogs. They work their hearts out. They are workers non-stop. They sleep beside their machines.” He refused to apologize, saying he was paying the community a compliment.
March 2008: Ford was charged with assaulting his wife and making threats against her, but the charges were dropped because of inconsistencies in Ford’s wife’s account of the incident.
June 2011: Ford angers the city’s gay community by declining to attend either the city’s gay pride parade or the flag-raising ceremony to kick off Pride Week. Ford said he would be at the family cottage for the parade. His decision broke with tradition that saw the city’s three previous mayors march in the parade.
Jul. 26, 2011: A Toronto woman accuses Ford of giving her the finger after she asked him to get off his cellphone while driving. Ford says the incident was a misunderstanding.
Mar. 8, 2013: Ford vehemently denies allegations from former mayoral rival Sarah Thomson that he touched her inappropriately during a political dinner. Thomson claimed the mayor was behaving oddly and made suggestive remarks before grabbing her.
also reading while driving, cutting funding to literally everything, framing his opposition to lakefront public housing in terms of a loss of revenue and homes for rich people to enjoy the waterfront instead of the real reason it’s an awful idea (public housing in this city is going through a funding crisis and buying expensive lakefront property when you could buy many more and cheaper properties is bullshit).
i’m glad that this whole fiasco is happening because i want him out of my city more than anything
but smfh at people who are willing to let him roll over this city and break promises, lie, cheat, and manipulate people to get more power, like all of a sudden he’s a bad person.
The unwelcome return of “Ho Lee Fuk,” “Sum Ting Wong” and “Wi Tu Lo.”
Well, Halloween is upon us. And with the early weekend festivities came a whole lot of crappy racist costumes, documented on social media for all to see. Just when you think you’ve seen all the bad taste you can take, a photo like this comes my way, taking that shit to new heights.
Behold, the assholes who dressed up as bruised and bloodied Asiana Airlines flight attendants. This photo was apparently taken over the weekend at the Sidetrack Video Bar in Chicago.
Their costumes, of course, refer to Asiana Airlines Flight 214, which crashed earlier this year in San Francisco, killing three passengers. And yes, their name badges identify themselves as “Ho Lee Fuk,” “Sum Ting Wong” and “Wi Tu Lo” — the fake racist flight crew names that infamously ran as a prank on KTVU.
