Of Dresses and Sewing Machines

All this Veil Poi-making obsession is making me want to get a Sewing machine…

But I probably think that that’s not all, maybe it’s the fact that I need to make my own cheap plus size dresses to fit me.

I just came from the mall today, and I was looking around for a nice dress (because, quite honestly, I’m getting a little older, and I probably need a make-over to a more grown-up look), but when I find the right kind of dress I want, it ends up being worth P1,000.00.

It’s seriously, seriously annoying. It’s like they’re saying that since I’m bigger, they’re going to charge me more for every frickin’ inch of cloth used in dresses. ~_~

Not to mention that it’s so unfair that people a lot bigger than me would opt to wear shorts or jeans, where as there are over a hundred stores for skinny-figured people, and they charge it at just half the price.

I have nothing against skinny people, and I know for a fact that I do need to exercise to lose some weight. But even if I exercise, I don’t think I’ll be as thin because I have big bones.

It kind of makes me sort of embarrassed for my full-figured sisters. Here we are, in the age where women can be pretty and feminine without society’s scorn, and yet we can’t seem to find the right dress to make us feel beautiful.

I don’t know. Maybe it’s just me being a cheapskate.

But I still want a sewing machine. XD

Dancing Envy And Double Standards

Someday, I want to be this brilliant in Tribal Fusion bellydancing.

If only I had some box converter so I can convert some of her YouTube videos into my television. ~_~

Unfortunately, as much as I love her dancing, society’s penchant for perfection continues to piss me off. Apparently, I’d be considered a freak if I tried to dance this kind of choreography when I am 80 pounds overweight.

Well, that sucks. I didn’t know you were supposed to have a specific bodily figure to bellydance. ~_~

I’ve been reading around the InterNet lately. Apparently, most “fluffy” bellydancers focus more on Egyptian-style bellydancing rather than Tribal Fusion style bellydancing. Which is fine for me. It’s just that there are way too many people who bring these bellydancers down by calling them “fat” or “disgusting”.

Seriously? Since when has dancing for pure enjoyment become disgusting?

Anyway, I really hate these kind of double standards. It’s annoying. It’s like saying you can go and do bellydance when you’ve shed some pounds and become skinny. Which is a total opposite of what belly dancing is all about. Bellydance is all about acceptance, and liking your body no matter what the shape.

Argh. Society sucks sometimes. Honestly. Remind me to find my old bellydance belt and dance my heart out while rising my middle finger to the people who give me disgusted looks. >:(

The Fat Buddha “Insult”

Before I post stories about my Marinduque Holy Week, I came across a little epiphany while watching a movie while I was processing my bank account to get money for the trip (kinda makes me wish I had check city cash advances… the line was so long at that time ~_~). The movie was called “Necessary Roughness”, and it starred Scott Bakula and Sinbad way back in 1991.

Anyway, even though I wasn’t really paying attention to the movie, but I do remember one part where they insulted one guy as a “Fat Buddha”. Being a chubby person myself, it kind of made me think a little.

Is being called a “Fat Buddha” really an insult?

The way I see it, it’s not.

Look at it this way. The person calling you a “fat buddha” is, for one thing, stupid and foolish. If they had studied religion and philosophy, they would know that the “fat buddha” is not actually the real Buddha. The real Buddha was named Siddharta Gautama, a young man from India who attained enlightenment by meditation, and the founder of Buddhism. His religious icon is that of a young man, sitting in a Lotus Pose (yeah, I know my Yoga XD). Buddha is also given to several other people, because the name itself means “enlightened one”.

Second, the “fat buddha” term is mistaken… it’s called a Budai. It’s Chinese diety. Buddha is, of course, the founder of Buddism, while Budai, is one of the deities of the Chinese Zen. He is also included in the Buddist teachings, but he is more known as “The Laughing Buddha” rather than just “Buddha”.

And finally, Budai, even though his appearance is that of a bald, short and fat man, is often times called the representation of contentment and enlightenment. He did not care if the world made fun of his belly or his looks. He is laughing because he is content of his life. He helped the poor and the destitute, and he understood the ways of the world. Society’s view of physical appearances didn’t matter to him. He’s laughing because he is content and happy with life and his life’s work. He is enlightened and happy… hence the name “Laughing Buddha”.

So yeah, the next time someone calls you a “Fat Buddha”, don’t be afraid to say, “Hey! Thank you!”. Why? Because it means you are enlightened. That you are happy and content with what you are, and with what you do, and what you look like. Consider it as a compliment. That ought to throw your enemy in loop. They’d go, “Why the heck is this guy thanking me when I insulted him?”. And you, having read and learned this, would just smile, knowing that the person who insulted you had just called you a happy and content “Enlightened One”. ^_^

Ruby Rodriguez on the Biggest Loser…?

Ok, I hate to admit it, but I am a HUGE couch potato. A lot of people consider it as a bad thing, but sometimes it’s still gives me some pretty good topics to think about.

For instance, I was watching TV when I saw Filipina celebrity, Ruby Rodriguez, in a commercial for The Biggest Loser Asia. It turns out she applied in the contest, and she aims to be able to lose weight with the help of the program.

Now, ever since I was a child, I have been a huge fan of Ruby. My family watches “Eat Bulaga” all the time, even until now, and nothing seems to light up the screen like Ruby’s smile. Even with all those sexy dancers around, it was Ruby’s smile and outgoing personality that captured me. Even when she’s doing movies, her emotions show up so wonderfully and her humor is amazing. And when I grew up and became the fluffy person that I am, I looked up to her, because she embodied what a fluffy person ought to be… a smiling, happy-go-lucky human who thinks nothing about what society tells her about her weight.

Seeing her on the auditions of the Biggest Loser made me think, “What ever happened to the celebrity I idolized? Why does she want to lose weight?” I would’ve understood her if she had some sort of medical condition, like Missy Elliot, who made a drastic weight loss that shocked the music business because of health issues. But as I listened to the commercial, it turns out that one of her reasons was because of vanity. She is a celebrity, and yet people criticize her and bully her because she’s fat.

Here’s a short interview of Ruby Rodriguez during her audition on the Biggest Loser Asia:

This is why I hate society sometimes. They just want everyone to be damn perfect. Everyone aims to be something beautiful, that they end up doing all these weird and painful things just to get it. Nose lift, boob lifts, stomach stapling… for me, it’s just so weird. God gave us these bodies, who are we to change the blessings that He gave us? I’m fat too, and I know someday that I’ll have to exercise as well once I get health problems, but I will most definetely NOT exercise because “someone told me to start losing weight because it’s ugly to be fat”.

I believe Ms. Ruby is a wonderful person, and she’s a beautiful woman, it’s just that people can’t seem to overlook the fact that she’s fluffy. I get the same thing too. The “oh-you’re-so-pretty-but-you’re-just-so-fat” comments. Normally, I turn a deaf ear on those comments (and believe me when I say I get it a lot, specially from my mother), but when you’re a celebrity, it’s pretty hard to ignore. I feel Ms. Rodriguez’ pain with all the criticism, and I understand why she would want to join the Biggest Loser. I just wish that she could read this so I could tell her that she shouldn’t join the Biggest Loser just because people bully her and criticize her of her weight. She should join the contest because she wants to be healthier, take care of her body and get rid of all her health issues. I’m sure a lot of fluffy persons like me would idolized her more if said something like that.

In the words of Jonathan Ian Mathers (creator of Neurotically Yours), “F**k society and their obsession with idealistic beauty!”. People should be happy with what they’ve got, it’s what God gave them, society’s view on vanity be damned. God gave people life. I, for one, will not waste it on trying be something I’m not . If God has willed me to die a cholesterol-induced death, then so be it!

Anyway, to Ms. Ruby Rodriguez, idol of fluffy Filipinas everywhere, if she does get into the Biggest Loser, I hope she does well and gets healthy. And to all the people who criticized her, made fun of her and bullied her (and all fluffy people), go stuff yourself with celery sticks, you perfectionist pricks! ~_~
