Cliques

In a world of drama, style and abused fashion, a group of young adults females rejoiced.... and so be it.. they are the... (drum roll please..)................... CLIQUES!

To be in one, one must sign an contract:


And Kathy is hereby a member of the Clique. Lovely. But what do they do in real life? Why are they so different from us? Excuse my Jawa but this is what I perceived to be their activities.

1. Camera whoring and post them everywhere anywhere with tags like me, ettie, kathy, amy and lina (zaitun, khadijah, aminah and amalina)

2.Discussions revolves around one of their cheating boyfriends, one of their loving boyfriends, one of their rich boyfriends and one of their handsome boyfriends. Don't get me wrong, all of them will experience each situation one at a time... wouldn't be fun if there's two cheating boyfriend eh?

3.They'll break up publicly via phone (imagine 5 girls memberi semagat sandwiching a girl with a cellphone)

4. A proper definition of them:

The only thing that is necessary for a clique to form is the existence of a small set of people less willing to criticize each other than to criticize others.

I just happened to follow a friend to a Kebab restaurant and without warning, a clique joined us. They pretty much ignored me and was more preoccupied about one of the clique's cheating boyfriend. Other than that, they rate every male around and boasted about their celebrity friends and so on and so forth... they reminded me of the movie Mean Girls but being Malaysian, they should get themselves whammed by a monorail. A better perspective from the rail then diorang can view KL as Kuala Lumpur not KLCC

Annoyed me a bitlah.. Not so much as they don't layan anyone else who comes across them. Urgh.. It's really none of my business but their supposition of being one of the clique bothers me..

Disclaimer: I did not intend to hurt anyone. Need a glass of water anyone?

Oh my GOD Afiq, your entry here is so funny and true... Especially that bit about the camera whoring, and using nama-nama "glamour"... Oh I can't stop laughing...

Oh I cannot STAND these kinda people... It's true. They really do seem to talk about hot guys 24/7, and cute guys. And gorgeous ones. And guys with nice butts.
And they'd also backbite and mengumpat about other girls... And make up stories about said girls before blowing them out of proportion... GOSH I REALLY DISLIKE THESE KINDA PEOPLE!

Sorry, I'm getting a bit emotional here...

heheheh. That was really funny. I'm the sister of aisya (Lubna's friend, applepies blog). Hope you don't mind, but I'm linking your blog to mine :)

no.. i dont mind at all.

But we have to always remember that they are still human beings. They have feelings for themselves and for others. They do.. it's just that when they rejoice as a group, ego is mounted and stereotypes becomes guidelines...

just give them the -silent treatment- The more u talk about them, the more they'll talk bad about you.. hahahah.. funny kan?

anonymous... state ur name plzz....

Woopsie, anonymous was me...

You said the more we talk about them, the more they talk about us?

I wrote an article once about these kinda people, because I've witnessed these people during one of their little gossip sessions...

They're awful! There was one time when I happened to be working with them and then they started saying nasty things about this poor innocent girl who happened to have, well, to put it bluntly, big breasts. They kept going on and on and on about the victim's chest size, laughing and imitating her walk... God, i was so frustrated!
I wanted to seriously do something to get them to shut up, but it was about 7 people against 1, so I decided it would be best to shut up, cuz sometimes (SOMETIMES) I get reduced to inarticulate-ness when people gang up against me...

Thing is, they'll talk even if we don't talk about them. It's a form of comforting themselves, to cover up their insecurities.

alah... they secretly want big boobs as well.. why should we play their game of jelousy.. why?

anisah shurfa said...

whose jealous? I not jealous...

afiq said...

i dont remember referring them as YOU.

Aisya S. said...

Play their game of jealousy? Sapa yang jealous here?

What I'm trying to say is that these people talk about other people to "elevate" themselves above others. Feel insecure much? Put down other people, then your insecurities won't seem so bad anymore...

Heres the little story I wrote about this:

But then again, I think I've gone a bit off topic. Not ALL cliques backbite and say nasty things about other people. Some merely exist because a group of people need that sense of belonging, or feel comfortable being within themselves rather than mixing with other people they're not so close with, so... yeah.

Afiq, those girls FORGOT that they live in freaky MALAYSIA where we can't SAY anything we want and DO anything we want.

FUCK THAT.

Ask them to migrate to the US and they can behave like that.

By the way, I have nothing against them. I find them quite fun to join with, listening to their stories and laughing to their jokes, being overseas I guess there's a LOT of that kinda girls here because everybody is ENTITLED to the freedom of speech (well i guess we can call their gossiping THAT, because they are free to say what they want) and so I laughed a lot at their jokes.

They're fun la afiq. Just because they don't layan you doesn't mean you have to hate them... aw... sekali-sekala tak dapat attention la dik.. takkan terus marah?

*winks*

afiq said...

Why you think biler they consider themselves cliques they act alike issit? Some are better off than others and i did mention that they are human beings too. Yep, we cant say or do certain things, That doesn't mean we cant express ourselves.. They are entitled to their opinion and same goes to ppl who tak suker dioranng..

capiche?

azim said...

ya right.they are trully bull**** to me..no wonder la

nana said...

lets see.. emm its normal for girls to talk about boys and vice versa..
yes, i agree to the motion that they put others down when they feel insecure.. they make up stories or add up a story they picked about someone else.. its human, not only for girls, but human..
sometimes people misintrepeted what they heard and pass on to others.. lame? stupid? bul*****? yeah it is, but its human.. people can't help to be jealous, its merely natural.. don't get me wrong, i'm not supporting them, or backing them up.. just merely pointing out from the other side..
i had never liked these kinds of clique, its like they don't have other things to do.. i had always been one of their victim, one of their target, and yet, i don't really understand why.. it hurts, it's frustrating, tiring, sickening and very2 disturbing, but to stop them is out of my hands, so all i could do is try to understand.. slowly and steadily, i become accustomed to it.. so it doesn't hurt much.. i could just roll my eyes and smile when i confront with such incidents..

when i could finally see past their mask of clique, they're actually pretty fun to be with.. well the sarcasm will always be there, but u would just learn to adapt :)

oh yeah, (based on unvisited realm *so malas to go back haha* )don't run away from problems, coz it'll find a way to catch up wif u.. confront it once, and u'll never have to see it again.. like what your uncle said, life is a journey, not a destination, never a destination..
either we're happy or sad, life will go on.. so might as well live it happily.. rite ;)

hope to c ya soon..
~abien tot, nana signin out
