21 Perceptions: #1 Just a kiss

What a topic to start off my 21 posts on perceptions right? But I think starting off with something light would be way better than me starting off with religious views, politic views, sex talk, etc. Well, maybe sex talk would be a better start off, but no. We are kiss-ing. 😳 To put this more specifically, we are talking about lips-locking kind of kiss, just so you know. So..

What does a kiss means to you?


For some unfathomable reason, the culture has it this way that western people portray this impression that to them a kiss is just a kiss, no big deal. Like you could simply just grab a stranger from the street and start smooching them all over. Maybe the reason ain’t that unfathomable. Because if you come to think of it, it’s probably because kisses on English screens are way more intense and well, affectionate?

There’s a difference between common and nothing.

Here is the difference; It is nothing to give a peck on the face to people you’ve just met. And then, it is common to kiss someone you like just about anywhere and any time, BUT.. it is definitely not nothing. Well, unless it’s pure lust. Then again there is still lust, so it’s still something. 🙄

And my thoughts on this whole kiss thing is that(don’t judge), why would you kiss someone if you don’t like them? Because it feels good? If you are kissing someone just for the sake of feeling good, what does that person mean to you? I remember there was once this blogger who went around collecting 100 passionate kiss from people around the world. I’m not judging, but somehow it is obvious that everyone’s perception towards sharing a kiss is different.

Some people think it’s simply just a kiss between two lips involving some tongue, no big deal. Some people overreact. Some people experiment around. Some people couldn’t even bother. Some people are crazy about it.

As for me, I guess you just have to make sure that it is shared between two people who feels the same way about each other. Because.. it’s only fair that way isn’t it?




21 Perceptions

One day into being officially legal. Yes, the awesome author just turned 21 yesterday; 6 of August. Kindly remember the date as you can never have Facebook reminding you. So this day next year, you know what to do. Haha!

But don’t get me wrong, this post is not a  blow by blow account on how did I celebrated my 21st like what I’d usually have in a Michelicious story. Yes, I’m sure it’s not.

Well, we had a small gathering at my house last Saturday, an early celebration. Just invited close relatives and some friends, right after cleaning up, crashed a friend’s farewell party. And then yesterday(matter of fact: it was just now because I haven’t sleep so it’s still 6 of August in my context) went to this water park and had the Vuvuzela ride like thrice. They were so in love with it and couldn’t help it.

 A summary more or less? Haha. Yes, we will leave it at that.

“We’ve grown too old to find Sunway Lagoon interesting.”

“We’ve grown too old” Has been repeated countless time the whole day throughout our time spent at the water park.

And so, I came to realize that how much everyone has grown out of being their old teensy whinny self. And how my perceptions about so many things have changed. I can’t point out how much different I’ve grown to become throughout all these time, but it has become obvious enough for me to feel, oh .. I wasn’t like that last time.

Thus, the title of this post; 21 perceptions.

Actually before this, I was thinking about 21 random facts about me or something like that, a blog post dedicated as a mark being officially legal. But after talking to my friend and all, I’ve decided that perceptions would fit what I want nicely. I will cough up 21 posts on 21 issues. And the posts will feed on my perception towards a particular issue or rather topic.

It could be something random, it could be something personal, but whatever it is, it’d be about what my thoughts are on certain things. Because 3 or 5 years from now, I’d like to come back and see how much different a person I’ve become. And it’d be a gift to my future self. As for you readers, I don’t know, haha, the author is here, solely for your entertainment. 😉

Truth be told, I hope I would upkeep this 21 posts. So you will be my witness, I hereby grant you the permission to kick my ass if I couldn’t make it. Perhaps, by the time I finish my last post, I would have develop the habit of constant updating post in my blog again.

Ahah! It’s a deal, people. 🙂
