This is probably the first time that I am going to share a bit of my RL in this blog. I am brought up in a quite conservative family. My grandmother will probably faint when she knows that I support this Stand4Love campaign. Why do I say I have a quite conservative family? Well, my grandmother tries her best to impart her values to her children aka my father and my mother when she married into my father's family. However, I always remember my parents telling me this, " We brought you into this world so it's our responsibility to raise you up in a world as best as we can give you. However, it is your responsibility to live your own life as a happy adult."

It never occurs to me that among my RL friends, there are lesbians and gays. Yes, they and come to think about it, they are fun to be with. They are my good friends and I will never want them to be unhappy. As people become more educated and more expressive of their thoughts and feelings, more are coming forth with their wants and needs. It is about time that the society that we live in change their mind set and paradigm about what marriage and love is all about. Marriage is between two consenting adults, regardless of gender, age and colour or nationality.

When Ai, my good friend and roommate, told me that she wanted to take part in this Stand4Love campaign, I suggested that we take a shoot together. We styled separately on each end of our land and when we came together for the shoot, I smiled as we have chosen to wear something similar. Causal outfits with the same colour; purple and green. She is a great photographer as you can see. I love the outcome of this poster very much. Thank you Ai. <333

To those who stand up for who you love, both rl and sl. I salute you. You are courageous and deserve to be loved. Remember...

       "Tis better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all..."

       "I would rather have had one breath of her/his hair, one kiss from her/his mouth, one touch of her/his hand, than eternity without it. One. "
