One Friend Request

I was trying my bro’s Acer Netbook SSD (Solid state drive*) and decided to launch facebook. It took a while to log myself in, which is very disturbing, especially when Firefox hangs.

On the right sidebar, I saw 1 Friend Request.

Image has nothing to do with the post

“Sape laa pulak nak jadi kawan aku ni?” I bitched about it. Hey, I bet you get similar request from someone you don’t even know! To make things worst, we don’t even have any real mutual friend. So it was me being judgmental. Still, that doesn’t stop me from exploring her profile.

Born 1984, location Johor, age 25, birthday.. bla bla bla..

Really, I don’t know this girl. I’m not comfortable befriending someone I don’t know, even on social sites. I moved the cursor to Ignore, ready to click that boxy blue button. As I was about to decline her request, I saw a particular that flashes a BIG RED STOP sign in my mind, work: Hospital.. . I reread the whole page. Oh shit! She’s a doctor!

“Nasib baik ko doctor” I said out loud while clicking Confirm. My brother turned and smirked. I’m sure in his head, he thinks his brother is one step away from insanity.

So what’s your criteria to accept a friend on Facebook?

*Solid state drive has no mechanical parts as compared to a normal hard disk. Technically, if you dropped it or roughen up a bit, it won’t break easily. While it is rugged and sturdy, it doesn’t make up the fact that it’s slow (read & writing speed) and small data capacity (8Gb).

ps: Probably not going to MTV World Stage (I don’t have any tickets. If you have extras please give it to me! In return, I’ll write wonderful stuff about you!)


I am web developer, who's main concern is to save the trees. Nonetheless

  1. i don’t really care about it, as long as it has mutual friends or BBB (my mafia wars clain) or mafia wars in it..haha..

  2. I always accept new friends. Maybe we got something new? =D

  3. must have mutual friends that I know in life

    must be handsome

    must have nice profile photo

    ada gak some yg i x kenal w bad profile photo yg i approve. tatau nape.

  4. he/she must have mutual friends that i know.

    he/she must have common interest (i.e: he/she blogs, taking the same course, or whatever)

    even if we don’t share mutual friends, i will still approve him/her if his/her profile sparks my interest to approve him/her.

  5. aku kekadang aku main accept jer, entah sape2 main terima jadi kawan, aneh kan dunia siber ni

    ps:kalau alam nyata mampus aku tak terima orang tak kenal jadi kawan aku

  6. Mutual friends is a must! or a blogger. That’s it.

    P/s: Tiket to MTV World Stage dah habis ker?

  7. Classmate add pon kdg2 i x approve.

  8. malas nk approve.. himpun 2 -3 minggu baru approve beramai2. itu pun klu kenal.

  9. pening juga kan? ntah sape-sape yang ditambah jadi rakan. malas nak layan add je la he3.

    tapi untuk blogger macam best lak ha3.

  10. boleh nk accept new friends even though not really comfortable with it too.. tp kalau dah add then diam aja pun buat apa.. kan

  11. It’s almost 9pm and I’m doing great at home. Sigh~

  12. u r still searching for a doc ahh..=)
    keep up and try harder..”p

  13. ntahla. kekadang ntah sape-sape add kita..tu kekadang aku ignore aje..

  14. Lepas baca entri nih, terus cari ur FB profile. Just nak cakap, ur name is so pelik lah.

  15. mutual friends,
    friends sama minat photography,

    yang wajib accept,
    tapi kalo yang tak kenal tu,
    i will approve mula mula,
    lepas 2 hari pastu kalo dia wat derk aje,
    delete aje la,

  16. Yes it is. But I am very proud of having that name.

  17. tu la pasal. Kalau ignore org kate eksen plak.

  18. Mostly diam la. Tade nak ajak lepak2 or anything. Tp kalau ajak lepak, seram sejuk jugak.

  19. I guess thats the reason you approved me?

  20. haha yeah.. unless doctor.. female doctor.. 😀

  21. perasannya!!!!

  22. oouhh..patutla die tak pernah approve bile org add..
    sbb bukan doktor ek..


  23. for the sake of trying to see whether you would accept a stranger as a friend in FB, I did add you.

    But I got ignored anyway eventhough we did have mutual friends. >_*

    I guess I’m not a doctor nor a pious person then.


  24. If I approve you, you’ll stay quiet, so tell me, whats the point of approving?

  25. oh really?
    how did you know that I’ll stay quiet?

    is it because others do that?
    but what if I don’t?

    don’t you think eventhough you approved others that you actually know/knew back then would they’ll stay quiet as well as you thought a stranger would be?
    what’s the point of approving them as well?

  26. The tendency to stay quiet is almost like 90%. Usually when docs (or docs to be) who adds me on facebook reads my blog. Sometimes they are too shy to comment here, so they message me instead.

    I am uncomfortable having my life stream being viewed by others I am not sure of. Usually I would park them under limited profile until I know them well.

    But if you think I am shallow, I PROBABLY AM.

  27. ahh… so the real reason is because you feel uncomfortable having your life stream being viewed by strangers.

    oh no… i don’t think you’re shallow. it’s normal to be feeling as such anyway.

    you are an ‘interesting’ person you know… lots of my friends talk about you (who read your blog). I have so much to say to you but since you ignored me, i would have to refrain myself from saying anything. i think it would be improper to start blabbering something in this comment box.

    dont worry… i’m not a stalker or anything. have a good life ok? hope you’ll meet the girl of your dreams.

  28. tak kenal maka tak cinta 😛

  29. aku pilih orang yang minat photographer..then baru blogger..ahha..yang ada dalam friendster(dah tak bukak lagi) jangan harap ada dalam FB

  30. tak abes2 dengan photographers & photography 😛

  31. Kirenye kriteria nko..
    mesti awek yang kijer kat hospital..
    terutama nya awek-awek doktor la…
    pergh… selero tinggi bai~ muahahaha
