  Magnitude. Small, I feel very small here.

Favorite thing: Ok, half of you won't understand this.
Why? Coz you are guys who tower more than 5 1/2 ft & coz you are brave.

Me? I'm an Asian who does not have a country who'd send military jet over to save me should there be a political uprise or terrorist attack.
So, I've learned since young where I stand in society. My society.
Some of you think that's silly.
Let me assure you, it's not.
It's better to be safe than be sorry.

I was sick recently & I seeked comfort from a friend.
I didn't get 2 secs of this person's time.

Now, do you honestly think anyone other than my own family is going to come & save me?
Nah... not in Russia.
Not in this life.

Do u know what it means to be fearful & yet you still take that very step towards it because you know it's what make you grow?

That was how I felt b4 landing in this country.
Fear of the unknown?
Perhaps. Perhaps not.
Fact of the matter is, even the U.S. government was spending billions of $s during the cold war!
So, I figured I have reasons to be fearful!
