When I was younger, I used to asked myself…
“Why do females have to suffer so much?
Especially when it comes to monthly menstruation.”

Well, just like every females in the world,
I have my turn as well…
Sometimes, it is very smooth as if nothing happened…
But other times, it can be ultra pain until I can’t sit still even for a minute!

Then once;
I came up with a story of it…
It was quite funny since when I was younger…
in order to ‘protect’ pain in the face from guys…
my female friends and I invented a story on it…
Back then..
the guys around us have no idea what we were talking about…
so, it is kind of a laugh to us girls..

So, here’s the story…

I was in secondary school, I used to think that it is fair for girls to have 12 days longer vacation. Why would I say so…Because when we reached the age of 10 and above, most of the girls already started to have their monthly period.

Now, the trouble is this… When we have our period; a lot of things change. We have more worries than ever.

The best example is… when we sit down… Most of the females who have their menstruation are more careful with the way they sit and also what they wear. Most will try to wear black pants (if allowable) in order to minimise the ‘accident’ If wear bright colour bottom and coincidentally have menstruate; it might create some new ‘pattern’

And also, after sitting down for a long hour of lesson or meeting; it is always advisable to check the chair to make sure that it doesn’t look like a ‘black spot in the forest’. If there is something there… better call for SOS from other female friends….
