How evil are you?
How evil are you?
I got this from Janvier. Haha. Is it a good thing to be neutral?
The different sections of New York City
My friend wasn't there yet so I had time to play with my new toy: my new Samsung D600 handphone! I've been debating for about forever which phone to get since my Nokia 8310 a.k.a THE "class phone" (since it was the most popular phone in our IMU class in Strathclyde in 2002) fell into a public toilet bowl last, last CNY.
Just yesterday, I finally decided on D600! Hee hee. Look at the clarity of pictures!!
Same scene but shot in sepia mode
After a very satisfying dinner, catch up and browsing at the pasar malam stalls, we decided to head home and I walked to where I had parked my car earlier.
I was just thinking to myself "Should I buy some soya bean milk?" and humming Oasis's Don't Look Back in Anger happily under my breath when I saw my car...
Splattered, literally, from head to toe in bird droppings! On the windscreen. Bonnet. Roof. Side windows. Rear windows. Booth. My beloved baby, smeared with gooey white stuff, that had small flecks of grainy yellowish stuff mixed into it for good measure.
Instinctively, I looked at both cars next to mine, and both were, ironically, spotless! Gah!
For a minute, all I could do was walk around the car to survey the damage in horror, which was a stupid thing to do in retrospect, considering the hazardous situation. In dismay, I grabbed a wad of tissues and started wiping of the bird droppings as best as I could. Some was already rather dry and I had to resort to scraping. And this wasn't the usual one or two mini droppings. This was big time, bird shite diarrhoea!
Can you imagine semi-dried droppings, mixed with dirt (from my more-than-one-month unwashed car) smeared with tissue paper? If you haven't, trust me, it isn't a pretty sight.
I drove back in semi-despair. And I felt paranoid that everyone was staring at my dirty car and secretly sniggering at my bad luck. Arriving at my apartment, I drove straight to the designated car wash area. It was 9.35 pm.
Rushing up to my house to grab a rag, I rushed down and started hosing down my car, at 9.45 pm at night. Oh but that's not the end of my harrowing night. In the midst of my washing, a security guard walked past.
"Malam-malam cuci kereta?"
"Ya," I replied curtly.
"Park mana, kena banyak tahi burung?"
"Bangsar" Gah, what is your problem?
"Oh, hahahaha, tak pa, 'ong' (hokkien for lucky) la tu...hahaha"
-_- And he had the guts to laugh in my face.
So did everyone else who I told this incident to, for that matter. Some even asked me "Why didn't you take some pictures of you car with your new camera phone??!!"
Actually, it does seem quite comical as I'm writing this.
Moral of the story: Always look up before you park anywhere, especially in spots that seem too good to be true. Oh, but make sure you close your mouth.
Before, they were all piled higgedly-piggedly in shoe boxes at the foot of my wardrobe. Now, they're neatly arranged in a corner of my room.
While I was at it, I decided to do a mini makeover of my room as well. Since I was already stirring up all the dust with the shoes (*achoo* I'm allergic to dust and generally avoid stirring it up if possible...and I'm lazy as well), I might as well tidy up my books and magazines, my cluttered table, untangle wires from my TV, laptop, and other electrical appliances and also err..all the other skeletons in my closet. *achoooo*
Shoes, books, the Internet! Three passions in my life.
Hee, I think it looks great dosen't it? Now to tidy up my wardrobe and clothes drawers which, I think I'll leave to another day. =D
Got stuck in the terrible morning jam on Federal Highway for an appointment at SJMC. Headache throbbed persistently. A journey that would usually take 20 minutes morphed to a 1 hour 45 minute whopper jam. Grrr...welcome back to KL everyone!! Needless to say, I arrived late at my appointment.
On a positive note, it was an interesting interview on medical blogging. Had a craving for IKEA's Swedish meatballs the whole day (after seeing pictures on Shaolin Tiger's blog) which I happily satisfied after work. Hee hee..Yum. =D
Tender meatballs in warm, tasty gravy. Fantastic with the jam. Mmm...
Oh and memorable MSN conversations at night!
Another dreary day. Post-CNY lethargy, demotivation and persistent headache made me wish I could afford to fake an MC. Multiple shots of caffein, MSN conversations and friendly e-mails were my saviors. Locum at night was tiring as well. Two staff had just quit which left me with much more to do. No time for me to do my usual reading.
I realized my headache abates with caffein and wisely took a shot in the morning. A productive day by the week's standards. Perhaps my system was finally getting back into sync with work. Had another shot of caffein after lunch (green tea). Worked late and had dinner at A&W consisting of waffles, curly fries and rootbeer. So much for detoxing after CNY!
Woke up super early for my US visa interview at 10 am at the US embassy in Jalan Ampang. Worried I would be ensnared in another massive jam and left my house at 7.15 am sharp. =D Waited for two hours for the interview which itself took less than 5 minutes and was conducted through a cubicle-like counter with glass windows between me and the interviewer. And I have to go back on Monday ONLY between 2 to 3 pm, no earlier and no later, to collect my visa. Grrr...what a hassel!!
Arrived in the office at 1.30 pm and proceeded to work exceedingly hard fuelled by caffein and caffein alone and managed to complete my work for the day by 5.30 pm. Then off to locum which was surprisingly lepak! Watched Jet Li's Fearless later in the night and I'm glad I was convinced to go because it was surprisingly good. I liked it. =D
Finally had the luxury to wake up at 11.30 am. Proceeded to clean my room and the bathroom. Cooked a lunch of brocolli and tofu. It tasted terrible. Ha ha, even I have to admit that. Healthy food had never tasted so bad. Must be my cooking!!
Then headed out for a bonding session with the girls. We planned to try a nail saloon at Taman Desa and be done by 3.30 pm to meet up with a mutual friend in Bangsar. Haha, by the time we were done with our pedicures, it was 5.15 pm and by the time we arrived at Bangsar Village and found a parking at that congested place, it was 5.45pm. Poor guy had to wait 2 hours plus. We're sorry. Really. How were we to know that that place only had one manicurist/pedicurist for the 3 of us?
But I like my nails! Hee..see, the big toes even have tiny flowers stuck on to it at the sides. So pretty. *giggle* Haha.
All in all, it's been a tiring week of ups, downs, a persistent headache and caffein overloads.
I'm so glad that tomorrow is Sunday so I can err...rest.
