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!)

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.

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.

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

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,

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.


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?

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.

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.
