Of Anons, Baos and New Shoes

Last night, before I went to bed at a very teenager timing of 2am, I made a huge mistake of idling and scrolling through Dayre.

Because, through the community page, I saw that someone who follows me (and whom I follow back) had liked a post with a weird title.

And so, I went to click on that post.

Worst decision ever.

Or maybe best, considering how reading her post gave me the final push I needed to delete Dayre and remove it from that sweet spot on my phone and replacing it with a work related app.

So now every time I reflexively open the app placed in the spot, I’m reminded that less Dayre, more work which might be a good motto to follow in 2018 (hello! CNY not here yet means it’s not too late for new year resolutions!)

The Power of Anonymity

Anyway, back to the post.

Basically it contained alot of identifying (owner of OBC, and even calling my family name, chow!)

And a lot of name calling (scheming businesswoman, shameless, and even attacking my body positivity angle as well as my poor poor flabby belly).

All because I said I wasn’t sad Dayre was closing down. And because I didn’t give back to Dayre when it gave me so much.

I thought I’d lose sleep after reading the post because it’s mean, she identified me on social media and called me names and spread lies.

But in the end, I fell asleep within minutes of my head hitting the pillow and didn’t wake up till morning light streamed in and my husband sprayed my facial mist on my face ๐Ÿ˜‚

Good job chow!

Sorry, you tried.

I know you tried to rile me up behind your account of anonymity and who knows, you might be lurking on WordPress as someone else, but you know what.

Thank you!

Thank you for reminding me that the fear of cyber bullying is real and that I need to do my part in stopping the name and shame movement.

And also, for reinforcing the fact that despite having a wonderful community, Dayre is also filled with drama and people who like to go back and forth on their opinions and also…name shame.

Anyway, let’s get back to more important things…

Like my favourite bao!

I got mine from Giant so if you’re interested you can try too! It’s got this very exquisite mushroomy taste from the vegetables that frankly is my kryptonite.

I love it. And I want to buy 100 packs of these to keep in my fridge!

Oh and btw! If you’re a home owner, please consider getting this Hitachi multi use oven and microwave thing.

It steams, grills, ovens and microwaves all in one. Really saves alot of space in your kitchen!

New Mules!

Look what came in the mail today! My new mules!

I ordered them the same time as the other yellow pair I got, but these came a little later cos the seller was being a weirdo.

The little wavy details name up for the fact that the thread used is white and that the brand name is ridiculous ๐Ÿ˜…

But you know what, they are beautiful when worn so I give them a 9/10 rating.

I really like these shoes! Although my mum says they make her look like a witch ๐Ÿ˜…

Yes she’s been stealing my shoes to wear!

  1. Those shoes are very nice! Also I donโ€™t get all the Dayre drama? Iโ€™ve kept quite till now but I donโ€™t understand why at a time when everyone is celebrating the community aspect of Dayre people have time to tear people down and attack others in the community. If youโ€™re really attached to the app thatโ€™s great. If not, thatโ€™s great too. Why must we all think the same??

    1. I totally get what you mean. But maybe because the app is closing so people are like I HAVE NOTHING LEFT TO LOSE. I need to attack everyone!

      Thanks for the shoe compliment! Sharing the link soon!

      1. In all honesty the app wasnโ€™t THAT great. It was buggy and glitched a lot. I think people are getting hung up on something that isnโ€™t really worth getting hung up over. My philosophical though is that sometimes things have to die so better things can grow. I was quite disappointed in some of those throwing shade. It was so immature and I just expected better. Maybe I need to lower my expectations.

      2. Haha. Dayre has always been full of drama! It’s just hidden ๐Ÿ˜… But I agree with the fact that it wasn’t very well built! The immaturity tho. ๐Ÿ˜…

  2. Haters gonna hate, potatos gonna potate. Keep your head up!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Can I ask if you also still have a built in oven or is the Hitachi enough for typical cooking?

    1. Thank you!

      I only have this one Hitachi! It makes me happy and I don’t see a need for a built in one because….tbh…I don’t really like building in anything ๐Ÿ˜…

      1. It’s really GOOD tell your hub. Tried and tested good hahahahaha. No need to buy steamer and anything else! Less dishes to wash lol!

      1. Haha what I wanted to say was.. u go girl! I know people are always capable of being nasty, but to really write those things?? I just can’t imagine.

      2. Haha it’s easy to let your thoughts go into overdrive when you’re anonymous la! But thank you so much for checking in! โ™ฅ๏ธ

  3. If thereโ€™s one thing I hate about Dayre, itโ€™s the dramas. Although I donโ€™t deny it can get a little juicy at times! ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

    I hate those anonymous accounts. THEY ARE USUALLY KEYBOARD WARRIORS who need to lead a life.

  4. Your new mules ARE SO GORGEOUS??!! ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜

    Ps I saw the post as well, it is so vile. I don’t see anything wrong with you leaving the community. It’s your choice to do so anyway. If the anon were to blast you in real life, I doubt they had the guts to?

    1. I was shocked at how self righteous they were, then I scrolled back a few posts and realised that person has a “named” Dayre account but only dared to post on her anon one. SMH

      If you really think you’re right then say it on your own account lah! Boliao leh!

      And thank you! I got them from Taobao and will be sharing links soon!

  5. If Dayre survives through this whole ordeal, I think someone should do something about all the anonymous accounts. Smh.

    And your new shoes look damn good lah!

    1. Haha Anons will be Anons. Should do that phone number registration shit la! I have to say shopee does it damn well. They are super good at suspicious activity detection and will ban people’s accounts and request for IC photos to be sent in so people don’t dare to anyhow.

      Oops sorry that was a rant ๐Ÿ˜…

  6. Omggg, I LOVE THE OVEN!!!! So many ways to use it but it’s nearly $1k and my mum would defo be against it cause we already have an oven!! ๐Ÿ˜ฆ She’s looking to buy a steamer but if this has like ALL IN ONE, it’s SO worth the price!!

    1. Yes! I got mine on sale so still bearable for the price but considering how it’s an oven and a microwave and a steamer. I’d say is amazing!

  7. Eh I have a special selection of taiwanese greetings just for salty anon assholes who dare pick on our Chowster. Totally agree the need to weed out these slimey-iffy accounts. I totally block any follower who has zero.posts, or even those who have not posted in the last 2 months.

  8. Cowardly people who have no guts to put their real face on a profile are the WORSTTTTTT. itโ€™s truly a horrible form of bullying and itโ€™s such a pity nothing can be done against them cos theyโ€™re definitely a legitimate threat against oneโ€™s mental health.

    KUDOS TO YOU FOR TAKING THE HIGH ROAD CHOW!!!! Youโ€™re doing such great stuff donโ€™t care about the haters!!!

    1. Exactly what I want to say. I was shocked by how affected I was and I wondered about people who weren’t as mentally strong and healthy and how they would actually deal with this. The power they have because they are anonymous is scary and reacting to their snark remarks just eggs them on.

      But not acknowledging their presence takes a lot of mental strength la!
