(Video) Did You Know? These Common Mistakes Can Make People Dislike You!

Published

on

Every one of us has an innate desire to be liked by others. We want to make friends with everyone we encounter, have unrestricted confidence in those we label friends, and confide our secrets in them. At times, we convince ourselves that we’re charming, witty, and have a number of other great traits that make others want to be friends with us. However, you can’t help but be irritated by the fact that certain people detest you for some reason.

There may be various reasons as to why people might dislike us but sometimes, it is us who becomes the cause of it. Here are 5 common mistakes that we do that make people dislike us.

1. A bad first impression 7 seconds

When meeting someone or having a conversation with someones, just the first 7 seconds is enough to decide if you are likable or not. Making eye contact and speaking with a smile will make the person you are talking to feel comfortable because it mirrors your energy. Be it an interview, presentation, or a date, what you do for the first few seconds really matters. The energy, the enthusiasm that you display will determine the mood for the entire conversation.

2. Reacting defensively to laughter

Now we all hate it when someone laughs at us or makes fun of what we’re saying but that doesn’t mean we need to take everything seriously. Sometimes, jokes are just merely a joke and nothing more. Most people become defensive when they are made fun of. It all depends on how you take it. If someone laughs at you, you have the power to decide if they are laughing at you or with you, and hence you decide the vibe. To make the situation calm, you could just laugh along and prove the point you want them to see. By doing so, it will be more interesting and you will get your listener to listen more closely to you.

3. Hiding your weaknesses

We all have weaknesses. But sometimes, admitting them doesn’t mean it will give us a bad impression. What makes you look bad is when you try hiding them. Take the dating world, for example, you want to look perfect and flawless in front of your significant other but the truth is they are not expecting that. When you open up and admit your weakness, it shows that you’re brave and you accept that not everything and everyone is perfect. And hence, you have a similarity there. If you try to hide your weakness, people might just think you are dishonest and boasting which makes them dislike you all the more.

4. Not answering the question behind the question

Sometimes it’s just a straightforward query with no hidden meaning. People are sometimes afraid to communicate what’s actually on their minds, whether out of fear, uncertainty, or intimidation. They pose inquiries or make remarks that are just innuendos of a larger problem. For instance, here the question was how to know if the product actually worked. If the presenter would have just said he doesn’t know the percentage of time it works but his customers have given a good rating, the reaction of these viewers would have been different. Often the question is so simple but instead of answering the question, we wander elsewhere and this causes people to have a bad impression on us.

5. Being critical of a person rather than pointing to a specific behavior

The key to this is by separating the person from the specific behavior you dislike. A lot of time we classify a person as a whole instead of pointing out that particular character. Like with a friend, we automatically call them a lousy friend when they are not hygienic. Instead, you could have pointed out that hygiene aspect rather than calling them a bad friend fully. By doing so, it causes people to think we are being disrespectful and will make them dislike us.

Know About How Malaysia Day Came To Be And Here’s Why We Celebrate It!

Published

on

Malaysia Day is fast approaching us, but how well do you know the country? Apart from being a public holiday celebrated by Malaysians on September 16, it is also a historically significant day for Malaysia,  since it marks the formation of the Malaysian Federation in 1963.

Hari Malaysia is another name for Malaysia Day. It wasn’t until 2010 that this day was declared a national holiday. Malaysia Day celebrations largely consist of patriotic rituals honoring Malaysians’ fortitude. But don’t mix it up with Merdeka Day, which falls on August 31st. So what’ the difference between Malaysia Day and Independence Day? When Singapore, Sabah, and Sarawak joined the Malaysian Federation on September 16, 1963, it became the Malaysian Federation. Every year, the anniversary of this day is commemorated as Hari Malaysia. The original day of independence, however, is August 31, which is known as Merdeka Day.

Here’s a timeline of Malaysia Day:

In May 1961, during the Conference of the Association of Foreign Journalists, Tunku Abdul Rahman had an idea about the need to develop a plan to form political cooperation between the Federation of Malaya, Singapore, Borneo, Brunei, and Sarawak. On July 23, the branch of the Commonwealth Parliamentary Association Meeting of Malaya and Borneo in Singapore have agreed to establish Malaysia Solidarity Consultative Committee. This meeting was chaired by Stephen Donald and the first meeting of the Malaysia Unity Consultative Committee was held in August, following the second meeting in December.

In January 1962, the third meeting was held at the Selangor Legislative Assembly Chamber, Kuala Lumpur. The Cobbold Commission was set to survey the views of people in the states of North Borneo (Sabah) and Sarawak. This commission consists of 5 members namely Lord Cobbold, Dato’ Wong Pow Nee, En. Mohd Ghazali Shafie, Sir Anthony Abell, and Sir David Wathersons. In February, the fourth meeting was held and in June, the Cobbold Commission report was prepared and submitted to the British government and the government of Malaya.

In July 1963, important agreements were signed at the Commonwealth Relations Office in Malborough House, London. The agreement to establish the Federation of Malaysia was then signed by representatives of the British government, the Federation of Malaya, Sabah, Sarawak, and Singapore. Hence on September 16, 1963, Malaysia’s proclamation ceremony was held here at the Merdeka Stadium Kuala Lumpur where the Prime Minister, Tunku Abdul Rahman read the proclamation in front of almost 30,000 Malaysia.

Here’s some interesting fact by the way:

Fact 1-The actual date

The public ceremony was actually held on September 17 instead of 16.

Fact 2- Did you know Malaysia Day was meant to be on August 31?

On July 9, 1963, the British, Malaya, North Borneo, Sarawak, and Singapore signed the Malaysia Agreement, and Malaya’s Parliament enacted the Malaysia Act on August 20, 1963. Malaysia Day was postponed from August 31, 1963, to September 16, 1963, to provide the United Nations (UN) mission time to decide and produce a report on whether the people of Sabah and Sarawak wanted to be part of Malaysia.

Fact 3- Representation of Singapore

On the flag, one corner of the star symbolized Singapore, but it was later altered to represent Kuala Lumpur.

Fact 4- Public holiday in all states

Before 2010, Malaysia Day is a public holiday in Sabah in conjunction with the birthday of Yang Di-Pertua Sabah state; however, it is not a public holiday in Sarawak and Peninsula Malaysia. Starting from the year 2010, Malaysia Day is a public holiday for all states in Malaysia.

Why do we celebrate Malaysia Day?

Malaysia Day signifies a day of victory. It commemorates the Malay, Sabah, Sarawak, and Singapore territorial coalitions. It is a day of triumph since all of these countries have overcome their differences to form a unified federation. Secondly, it spreads unity. Malaysia Day promotes solidarity among Malaysians. The manner that the people of Singapore, Malay, Sabah, and Sarawak joined together despite their differences is a remarkable example of togetherness. Last but not least, it is a festive day. What could be more thrilling than taking a day off and celebrating a national holiday? Malaysia Day is a national holiday in Malaysia, and several ceremonies take place on this day. People sing national anthems to cheer one other up.

So keep your national spirits high and show some love to our beloved country!

(Video) Need To Know! The Meaning of Pandemic, Epidemic And Endemic!

Published

on

Though they’re frequently used interchangeably, not all infectious illness words are created equal. Even medical professionals have difficulty distinguishing between the terms “pandemic,” “epidemic,” and “endemic.” This is because each term’s definition is flexible and evolves over time as illnesses become more or less prevalent.

While exact definitions aren’t required for everyday use, understanding the differences can help you better comprehend public health news and proper public health actions.

Here’s how to differentiate them:

@dr.samhanPANDEMIK?EPIDEMIK?ENDEMIK? #KitaJagaKita #jombelajar #learnontiktok #tiktokguru #malaysiaprihatin♬ Wali Yank by Iyuz misterius – Iyuz misterius

1. Pandemic- When the spread of disease is rapid, it is declared a pandemic. This means that the pace of growth soars, and cases develop faster each day than the day before. The virus has nothing to do with virology, population immunity, or illness severity when it is proclaimed a pandemic. It denotes that a virus has spread across a large region, impacting several nations and populations.

2. Epidemic- An epidemic is defined as a sudden spike in the number of illness cases in a certain location. It is not necessary for an epidemic illness to be infectious. Epidemics are diseases or other health-related behaviors that occur at rates that are clearly higher than expected in a community or region.

3. Endemic- An endemic is a disease epidemic that is persistent yet restricted to a certain geographic area. As a result, the disease’s spread and rates can be predicted.
