Watch Out! 15 Habits of Highly Miserable People You Need To Know!

Published

on

We know that feeling miserable is a state of being extremely unhappy. Sometimes, we feel like we’re chasing happiness and peace but there’s still not grip on it. Even there is some good going on around you, you still feel that happiness or joy isn’t quite enough. Those who experience this feeling tend to let misery take over and allow that emotion to swallow them up completely. Not only that, miserable people never expect any good to happen around them. They even make the vibe theirs so that others would feel just as bad and negative as them.

Sometimes we think that misery comes from around us. Not that it’s wrong, some people go through a hard time because of whom they are surrounded by. But, there are instances where the misery begins with ourselves. Some people indulge in misery so that they can get attention, sympathy, and constant reassurance for themselves.

So, if you are one that wants to avoid misery and focus on a happy life, here are some habits of miserable people you should know.

1. Never thankful enough

Being thankful means doing it with a joyful mindset. With that mindset, a person is most likely to 10 times more grateful for the things they currently have rather than the things they don’t. For miserable people, being thankful is a big no. A miserable person avoids being grateful. Instead of counting their blessings, they focus more on things that they don’t own in their life.

2. Lead an unadventurous life

Highly miserable people are really dull and boring. They choose to have a dull existence with no fun or excitement and later complain about it. When life turns our unadventurous and boring, miserable people believe that they are the ones being boring and start projecting it towards others.

3. They live in the past

We all have our pasts but that doesn’t mean we need to dwell in them. Miserable people tend to live their lives stuck with their past rather than living the present life. They will always talk about what happened and what they did. When miserable people criticize the past,  they say things like “being born in the wrong location at the wrong time” or “life when I was a youngster was unpleasant and I never received what I wanted.”

4. They love picking fights

Every now and then, miserable people love picking fights with those close to them for the unrelated situations. Next, they expect people to treat or respond to them with kindness or show pity and if they don’t, miserable people are quick to point it out. If the other person brings it up again, they’ll make it appear as if they have no idea what they’re talking about, and even if they began the conflict, they’ll soon appear hurt and victimized.

5. They think other’s interntion towards them is dishonest

Any comments, opinions, or remarks said to miserable people will be taken the wrong way. Even if their intention is merely for good, miserable people just can’t accept it. They think that shame is at the forefront of most people’s goals, which will result in a miserable person who is suspicious, angry, and always on the defensive.

6. They focus only on themselves

People who are extremely miserable concentrate on themselves, their wants, and their difficulties because they feel that no one else’s troubles or challenges are as severe as theirs. They are always concerned with why they do things and act in particular ways, scrutinizing their shortcomings and chewing over their issues.

7. They worry too much

People are miserable when they are worried. Miserable individuals refuse to listen to reason and are fixated on situations and events over which they have no control. Worrying adds to their pain, therefore it’s only natural that these folks are naturally anxious.

8. They are envious

People who are miserable will not openly admit that they are envious of other people’s achievements. They will, however, minimize other people’s accomplishments and triumphs by pointing out flaws or downplaying the news, therefore deflating the other person’s enthusiasm. Miserable people will point out all the possible flaws when someone is happy.

9. They are critical of everything

Almost everything is not good enough for them. Miserable people are very critical about things whether others agree with them or not. Miserable people are generally the first to express their thoughts. They trash something that someone enjoys in order to make their point. They like provoking others and feel that they are always correct while everyone else is wrong.

If you happened to exhibit any of these signs or know of anyone who is a miserable person, its time for a change because, with changes, you become a happier, successful, and cheerful person

Dalgona Candy is actually sugar melted and also whipped with a little bit of baking soda so it puffs up, and you can eat it by itself. It doesn’t taste like coffee at all, which makes sense because there is no coffee in it.

Food Review: Crispy And Creamy, Try These Local ‘Aiskrim Goreng’ In Ampang!

Published

on

From classic vanilla to durian to sea salt, the flavours of ice creams are just endless. Who doesn’t love ice cream? Cold and creamy, it is enough to relish the heat and to satisfy our taste buds at any time. We are well versed with the cold version of ice cream but have you thought about fried ice cream?

Yes, you heard that right! Fried ice cream is a popular dessert served in Asian eateries. Despite this, some people attribute its origins to non-Asian cultures such as American, Mexican, and even Polynesian. Whoever invented it, kudos to them for making such a delicious treat. If you’ve never had fried ice cream before, it’s ice cream that’s been frozen solid under extremely cold conditions, then coated with bread crumbs, pastry, or a batter of some form, and fried briefly to cook the exterior to a golden brown. But what makes it so delicious and well-liked by the masses?

Speaking of fried ice cream, here’s one I tried after the lockdown and it brings me back to the good old times. The odd thing about this fried ice cream is the person does the business using only his car. With a mini stove and icebox to store the frozen delicacies, Mr Syafiq runs his business around the Ampang area.

There are about seven flavours sold. They are:

  • Vanilla
  • Chocolate
  • Durian
  • Yam
  • Strawberry
  • Corn
  • Vanilla mixed with Chocolate

It only takes about 3 minutes to fry this frozen treat and once done, it is packed in a brown paper bag for you to enjoy it. Not only that, you can even purchase the frozen version and fry them by yourself at home. It is super simple.

My favourite would be the chocolate flavour because why not! I love how this fried ice cream looks like it’s something unique. Think about it. Ice cream and heat don’t get along but this fried ice cream says otherwise.

I’ve tried ice cream with cakes but I feel they become too soggy if left for too long. This fried ice cream, however, has a thick coating that becomes golden brown, crispy and crunchy after frying. And I just love how you get the best of both worlds in one bite. You get the crispy, hot coating followed by the creamy, cold ice cream. It’s just heaven! Also, the frozen cutlets look so adorable and easy to hold.

Mr Syafiq does not only sells them in his car but he also offers fried ice cream services for events. Booking fried ice cream for your function is gonna leave your guests awed for sure. You can find Mr Syafiq and his fried ice cream near Petronas Pandan Indah or near Tesco Ampang. If you can’t find him, no problem, you can directly call or Whatsapp him directly at number 017-3218040 to find his whereabouts.

Trust me, you definitely don’t wanna miss this amazing creation!

(Video) Japanese Troops Devoured By Crocodiles In ‘Ramree Island Massacre’

Published

on

This particular incident of saltwater crocodiles devouring humans happened towards the Japanese troops occupying the Ramree Island in the Bay of Bengal during World War II in the early year of 1945. Those who had survived the battle reportedly did not fare well when they had to choose the doomed escape route across the crocodile-infested waters.

At the time, British forces needed an airbase in the area of Ramree Island in order to launch more attacks against the Japanese. However, thousands of the enemy troops held the island, causing an exhausting battle that went on for six weeks. The sides were stuck in a standoff until the British Royal Marines along with the 36th Indian Infantry Brigade outflanked a Japanese position. Maneuver split the enemy group in two and isolated about 1,000 Japanese soldiers.

The British then sent word that the smaller, isolated Japanese group should surrender. The unit was trapped and had no way to reach the safety of the larger battalion. But rather than accept surrender, the Japanese chose to make an eight-mile journey through a mangrove swamp. That is when things went from bad to worse. So horrendous. The mangrove swamp was thick with mud and it was slow-going. British troops monitored the situation from afar at the edge of the swamp. The British didn’t pursue the fleeing troops closely because the Allies knew what awaited the enemy inside this natural death trap that is saltwater crocodiles are the largest reptiles in the world. Typical male specimens reach 17 feet long and 1,000 pounds and the largest can reach 23 feet and 2,200 pounds. Swamps are their natural habitat, and also humans are definitely no match for the crocodiles’ speed, size, agility, and raw power.

The Japanese understood that saltwater crocodiles have a reputation for eating humans but they went into the mangrove swamp anyway. Soon after entering the slimy mudhole, Japanese soldiers began to succumb to diseases, dehydration, and starvation. Mosquitoes, spiders, poisonous snakes, and scorpions hid in the thick forest and picked off some troops one by one. Crocodiles appeared when the Japanese got deeper into the swamp. They are active at night.

Of the 1,000 troops who entered the swamp on Ramree Island, only a reported 480 survived. However, death toll estimates vary. What the British do know for sure is that 20 men came out of the swamp alive and were captured. These Japanese troops told their captors about the crocodiles. But exactly how many men died in the maws of the crocs remains unknown because no one knows how many troops succumbed to disease, dehydration, or starvation.
