Earlier today my sister and I were discussing the next country we should go to when we go on our holiday.
After a few other options like Curaçao, Portugal, Thailand or Jamaica (Ya Mahn!) she said 'What about China?' I thought about it and thought; why not? I love Asia and China has a great culture, but then I realized that I almost forgot about one of my tattoo’s…
It’s a Buddhist mantra in Sanskrit and well, China isn’t so fond of Buddhism in general, Buddhist monks from Tibet still get tortured for their believe. And so I realized, it would be a great risk for me to walk around with Sanskrit mantra on my arm. I don’t want to get arrested, especially not in China!
So then my sister chuckled and said 'Well that's nice, on one arm you have a Buddhist Mantra and on the other hand you have a tiger, so if we would go to Sri Lanka you would also be at risk due to the possibility that people might think that you support the Tamil Tigers' - The Tamils and Sinhalese folk are at war with eachother - Which made me realized that I’m at risk there too (but not as much as in China) So we both laughed because of the irony.
Never realized that tattoo’s can cause trouble like that too :P
Thank god I live in a country where freedom of speech & expression still mostly exsists.
But, fuck it! I love my tattoo’s. I’m not bovvured! I just need to cover up whenever I would visit China :)
One thing you need to know about a Virgo woman - she has guts and lots of them! It doesn’t mean that she is not as shy and as reserved as she seems to be. It’s just that she can do anything and everything for the people she loves. By love, she mean real love, no other type of love exists for her. A Virgo female is a complete woman! She has all the charms and tricks that any other female has, but she is not weak. Infact, she has quite a determination and can do anything if she sets her mind to it.
She will be completely devoted and loyal to you in a relationship. Still, if it doesn’t seems to be working, she will severe all the ties and become as cold as the North Pole. Virgo women’s characteristics profile is an odd mix of emotions and practicality, romance and common sense. When they fall in love, they show such extreme passion and intensity that only few other women can. Making them fall in love is, however, an entirely different task. They will demand total perfection from you, even though they may fall short in that arena.
It’s better to get used to their critical nature. A Virgo girl believes that she is extremely efficient and organized and what is more annoying is, that she is right. She is a stickler for time and it’s better not to be late when you are meeting her. She will not break the new, expensive vase when she is upset, but she can be very demanding and fussy. If the fault is yours, admit that you are wrong and say it while handing her the flowers. Don’t even try to argue, or she will lose her temper again.
It is better to leave her alone for sometime and she will cool again. On the other hand, a Virgo woman will find it very hard to accept that she is wrong. The fact is, most of the time she’s not. When you are courting her as well as after you get married, it is advisable to mind your manners. She cannot tolerate someone using abusive language, coming late, dressing sloppily, not minding table manners, etc. It’s better to brush up your vocabulary too. She will not cling to you, nor will she become totally aloof.
She is also very good with finances and extravagance is not one of her personality traits. A Virgo female cannot stand public displays of affection and it is better to be subtle in this area. Her taste is very good and her intellect quite developed. If you are trying to woo her, take her to places like theatre, art gallery, etc. Just like a typical Virgo, she is prone to worrying about things too much and she will do your part of the job too. She is very much attached to the ground and prefers to live in the real world.
You let a Virgo female do her part of making things seem just perfect and she will keep you entertained with all her feminine charms. She is very sensitive and her feelings are pretty fragile, but she will become exceedingly strong when you need her support. With kids, she will be very considerate and you will never see them running around in their underclothes. She will gentle, but firm and will demand complete discipline from them. Even though a Virgo woman is very critical, she will not take criticism very nicely. It never works the other way round for her.
The reason for this is that she is as aware of her own imperfections as she is of yours. So, she doesn’t need you to remind her of her own shortcomings every now and then. Instead of fretting over her perfectionism, you should feel blessed to have such a charming female who never makes your house look like a garbage dump. Your toast will never get burnt and your coffee will always taste just perfect. She has a witty side too and when she laughs, it seems like the ringing of little bells, doesn’t it!
