This time, last year

It’s been a year already.

Amazing how time has flown without us noticing it.

Sometimes, I feel like I have to stop time just to catch my breath.

Happy Merdeka darlings ❤

Shopping yang tak jadi

Was supposed to go on a Dig-Out-Cheap-Stuff Mission with Khor and Shun at Sungai Wang this morning.

Now, I was already quite reluctant, cause I find Sungai Wang uncomfortably cramped and like this weird other dimension where people wear green and purple socks and think they’re cool. Add that to the fact that we were going to be driving separate cars and I suck at remembering routes, so I was really stressing out about getting lost in KL.

So when Kah Yie told me she was coming back from Kelantan for the weekend, I took the opportunity to ffk Sungai Wang lol.

Thought I would shop in MV instead. Thought wrong.

We were supposed to meet up at Midvalley to shop and have dinner. But becaue MV totally sucks, all I managed to buy were some “necessities” from Watsons like tampons and nail polish remover. Sigh.

And then all the restaurants had like this 2 hour waiting list cause the masses were to buka puasa at the same time. Another bummer.

Ended up at this Korean place at the Gardens, cause it was quite empty.

Which was obviously a sign that IT SUCKED *bangs forehead.

LOL Korean Food is “Good Taste” and “Stylish”. Even the inverted commas were used wrongly, stupidnye omg.

Yeah so anyway the food sucked simply because it was soooooooo overpriced!

K lar I realise that it might just be because we’re just poor people, but the quality and service just don’t justify a >RM100 price tag for some raw meat you have to cook yourself! So we just ordered the soup + rice set instead of BBQ. Which was actually quite nice lar to be fair.

Shirlyn was emo about her RM10 tiny cup of “sugar” tea, although you can’t really tell from that fake smile of hers.

In other unrelated news,

I downloaded Britney Spears’ “Circus” album which rocks. Yeah, I still listen to Britney. Fan for life woots!

But then my stupid car Perodua radio/cd player doesn’t play MP3. So I downloaded this software to convert mp3 to cda format but then the stupid trial version allows me to convert 10 songs only!!!~

How how? Her cd got 16 songs leh! Takkan  I’ll have to eliminate 6 songs so sad huuhuu. Buy pirated cd only la.

Oh oh and watch this video damn funny wan ok! But let me warn you first, if you’re a guy, your balls sure shrink wan after watching this hahaha!

Told you so!

Was complaining to Alfred about not being able to see MSN profile pics. Luckily he was smart/knows me well enough to ask me to check which version I was using.

Told him it was 4.7

He told me the current one is 14.

So I’m like 9.3 versions behind T.T

Asked him whether he was sure it wasn’t version 4.0 instead of 14.

Got this:
“The invitation to start File Transfer could not be sent because liping is using an older version of Windows Live Messenger”.

Paiseh.

The MSN Messenger actually came together in my Window’s installation cd and in installed it when I reformatted my comp. The dumbest thing was that when I first used it I was like, “Wow new MSN looks so chun”.

Wtf.

Now I know why it was called MSN Messenger instead of Windows Live Messenger. And no wonder I couldn’t see profile pics and send offline messages!

The new Messenger is damnnnnnnnnnnn cool btw.

ZOO LI PING

Growing up, I’ve always been fascinated with animals, mostly attributable to my mum’s habit of feeding strays and my brother’s penchant for enslaving lizards by tying strings round their necks.

My first ever pets were what I thought were baby snakes – tiny gunmetal little things, rather like worms except that they weren’t. If my 3 year old memory serves me right, my brother and I found a bunch of eggs and decided to hatch them. And out came the cute little suckers, tiny as can be. I remember my mum scolding us and squishing the poor babies with a newspaper T.T.

Then again, childhood memories tend to turn out exaggerated and sprinkled with fantasy, so in reality they probably weren’t actually anything as exciting as snakes.

After that, I had hamsters (used to breed to sell to the petshop, had 40 of em in the baby-mill at one point!), birds, dogs, cats, lizards, spiders (hatched some eggs and the babies were really cute, but then they died cause they didn’t want to eat the ants I fed them boo), ants, earthworms, a caterpillar that turned into a moth, a rooster that pecked my dog’s nose (so my mum gave it away to my neighbour who probably made roast chicken out of it sigh), fishes, a dainty transparent prawn, tortoises, a long-necked turtle (which my brother didn’t want anymore so he gave it away through a FORUM wtf T.T), ladybugs, a housefly (I trapped it in my hamster’s aquarium, but then the hamster ATE it!)… and goodness knows what else, that’s about as much as I can recall.

[If you’re wondering where the hell I got the eggs from, well, I used to go egg hunting in the store room lol.]

I totally qualify to be a zoo keeper lar wtf.

So anyway, when it comes to animals/bugs/fishes there’s really a lot more to them than what meets the eye.

Right now I have this dog, named Bobo (all my dogs were named Bobo and all my cats Kitty dsh) who’s like really aggressive and barky in nature. The person who designed my house gate actually made it so the bottom half was like super narrow bars thus preventing my dog from popping his head through the gate and biting people! Lol.

But SOMEHOW, my dog just loves cats!!!!!

It’s damn weird ok.

He regularly chills with Kitty and occasionally even lets her bite his tail.

And then a couple of weeks ago this fugly black kitten turned up at my house begging for food.

And my dog decided to adopt it and actually sleeps with the kitten!

The only thing he won’t allow it to do is eat his food lor.

The gentleman in him even allowed Hitam to rule over his beloved (but smelly) chair.

Forcing him to perch precariously at the edge of the cushion.

And the dumbest part of this story is that my bigass fat Kitty is AFRAID of that tiny little kitten.

Sigh. Need to bring all of them for animal hierarchy counseling already.

ROARRRRRRRRRRR!

PS: That’s my maid’s bed hor. My bedsheets not so ugly wan.

IF YOU SEEK AMY

No seriously. F.U.C.K.ME.

A song only Britney could make work.

Anyhuu… I really got to rant here.

RANT.

RANT RANT RANT.

ARGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!

GAH GAR GAHHHHHH ARGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!

BOOOWEEEE BAHHHHHHH GAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHARGHHHHHHHHHH!

haih.

This has been the weirdest, stressfullest, suckiest, horriblest month ever!

Because the shit just keeps on coming.

First, I had encounters with 4 different guys who I had supposedly left to the past. Guys I never wanted to talk to, for many different reasons. But noooooooooooo they just had to come meddling into my life which really stresses me out. Fine. Whatever.

Then this stupid PCK had to go to the hospital, leaving me all alone in that stupid cubicle so I have officially nobody to talk to. Which is super depressing cause I just CAN’T not talk.

Unless I want to talk to the many product dossiers surrounding me =(

And then I got all stressed up about the stupid pharmacy placement thing which is going down in November.

And then I started getting all these nightmares about weird random things. I even dreamed of someone else’s boss for goodness sake! It’s so damn depressing to go to bed every night cause I know I’ll have another nightmare and wake up feeling like damn shit with muscle aches here and there cause I literally punch air when I dream.

Then somebody came along and dug an RM530 hole in my pocket. Although it is my own fault lar cause I hutang him for so damn long already. And I’m really glad that’s finally settled but still… Broke.

And then my brother magically found holes in my car tyres which honestly didn’t even make any difference anyways but he had them changed so now I’m double broke. Oh and my last oil change was 12000km ago so he had that changed as well sigh.

Then the breakup.

And then I caught a cold standing under rain and chilly winds.

But hats off to my mum, who thinks I’m fat. No, seriously? ME FAT??? What the hell is going on man. But yeah I do realise I’ve gained weight cause all my wonderful beautiful clothes kinda don’t fit anymore T.T

Must be cause of all these:

And if you’re wondering why I’m being such a bitch, well it’s cause I’m just empty inside.

Haih when will August be over?

sigh.

You know there’s definitely something wrong with the relationship when you feel lonely even while he’s holding your hand.

But I’m sorry.

OMFG WHAT WILL THEY THINK OF NEXT???

Girls, please pay attention!

OK so there’s this drug called ‘bimatoprost‘ (brand name Lumigan) which is an opthalmic prostaglandin (try pronouncing it slowly 3 times, I promise you’ll get it) used to reduce the intraocullar pressure of eyeballyballs in patients with glaucoma. SUPER YAWWWWWWWN!

Or so it was.

Apparently some smart women (when I say women, I mean women, cause men would never in a million years notice this) realised that after using Lumigan for some time their eyelashes started to grow longer, thicker, darker and fuller!

OMFG is that a great side effect or what??? You can’t even call it an adverse effect cause there’s absolutely nothing bad about it! It’s a pure miracle!

So now the company which I assume holds the patent for bimatoprost – Allergan – started marketing the exact same thing (in the same 0.03% concentration version) for the treatment of hypotrichosis.

Bah humbug! That’s just medical jargon for NOT ENOUGH LASHES aka Asian lashes lah.

(Don’t you hate that the Westerners are the ones that came up with this? AS IF GOD DIDN’T ALREADY GIVE YOU ENOUGH! GAH!)

So after some slightly dodgy clinical trials (which includes the testimonial of one Brooke Shields), the US FDA registered LATISSE as a prescription treatment for hypotrichosis.

Before and after photo of Brooke Shields’ eyelashes. If you can’t see the difference you’re either blind (and need bimatoprost for your glaucoma anyways) or are a dude.

I really hate to say this but if you stare closely enough you’ll realise than in her ‘after’ shots there is a slight discolouration of her eyelids, which is one of the listed side effects boo.

I really don’t see the point of making it prescription-only tho. How the hell is a doctor gonna diagnose ‘a lack of thick, full, dark, beautiful eyelashes’? And it’s not like they’re gonna put it on for you; you have to apply it yourself everynight cause the effect goes away once you stop. Darn it’s a conspiracy I tell you. But anyhuu, I guess no choice lar since FDA insists on having a doctor’s assessment and supervision. Damn the docs are getting even richer.

(And oh yes it does come with a whole list of  side effects, although I suspect these have been downplayed by the company. Most common would be eye irritaiton, no surprise.)

It says on Wiki that stimulating hair growth is memang common with use of opthalmic prostaglandins. A few other companies even sued Allergan cause they claim to have already released cosmetic (non-prescription) prostaglandin analogs with the same indication.

Manatau one of them kena zhap lap by the FDA cause it was tainted with bimatoprost lol.

And apparently another so-called side effect of this wonder drug is that it reduces fat!! WTH!

Oh hey I wonder if it also works for normal hair?? Then we wouldn’t have to look at ugly fat bald man ever again! Just plain ol’ ugly man, cause I doubt bimatoprost works wonders on facial features. Sigh, that would just be too good to be true.

OK the only downside of this is that one month’s supply of this is gonna set you back USD$100++ bah! I could probably just get eyelash extensions for one third of the price sigh.

Anyhuu…

I super can’t wait til they bring this drug to Malaysia!!! This is super gonna make doctors and Allergan rich, but I bloody don’t mind cause we would all finally have lush lashes!!! When I say ‘we’ I assume I’m gonna be joining the ranks of the rich and fabulous anytime soon lol.

Gee, I wonder whether I’ll be the one to evaluate their product dossier when they do apply for registration in Malaysia? Even more reason to stay at the bureau!

(Can’t wait til they lose their patent and India comes up with a generic version teehee!)

Now if that ain’t GLAM pharmacy, I don’t know what is!

You belong with me

I’m so feeling Taylor Swift right now, despite all her teensyness.

You’re on the phone with your girlfriend, She’s upset
She’s going off about something that you said
She doesnt get your humour like I do

I’m in the room, its a typical Tuesday night
I’m listening to the kind of music she doesnt like
And she’ll never know your story like I do

But she wears short skirts, I wear t-shirts
She’s cheer captain and I’m on the bleachers
Dreaming bout the day when you’ll wake up and find
That what you’re lookin for has been here the whole time

If you could see that I’m the one who understands you
Been here all along so why can’t you see?
You belong with me
You belong with me

Walkin the streets with you in your worn out jeans
I cant help thinking this is how it ought to be
Laughing on the park bench thinkin to myself
Hey isnt this easy?

And you’ve got a smile that could light up this whole town
I havent seen it in awhile, since she brought you down
You say you find I know you better than that
Hey, Whatcha doing with a girl like that?

She wears high heels, I wear sneakers
She’s cheer captain and I’m on the bleachers
Dreaming bout the day when you’ll wake up and find
That what you’re looking for has been here the whole time

If you could see that I’m the one who understands you
Been here all along so why can’t you see?
You belong with me

Standin by, waiting at your back door
All this time how could you not know that?
You belong with me
You belong with me

Oh I remember you driving to my house in the middle of the night
I’m the one who makes you laugh when you know you’re about to cry
I know your favorite songs and you tell me about your dreams
I think I know where you belong. I think I know it’s with me.

Can’t you see that I’m the one who understand you?
Been here all along so why can’t you see?
You belong with me

Standing by or waiting at your back door
All this time how could you not know that
You belong with me
You belong with me

Have you ever thought just maybe
You belong with me
You belong with me
