malam ini malam nisfu syaaban.


*takes a deep breath*



I could not hold it in.
I had to cuss. My apologies. Hehe.
All of us PRPs are currently busy struggling to get our logbooks signed.
We are supposed to hand it in two (or at least one) months before the end of our “PRPship’. Along with our Full Registration and posting application forms. Which I have not posted !
I have FOUR preceptors that I have yet to go ask for their signature because I have still have unfinished business. Sobs.
I’m hoping to get them all done by the middle of this month as I’d be leaving to be in the Pharmacy Enforcement Department for two weeks by then.
We’ll see how things go.

I have gained over 3 kilograms over the past, hmm, to be honest I can’t remember how long it has been since I last could fit properly into my jeans.
I no longer can fit into my usual tees and tops.
Had to buy over-sized tops that I thought I would only resort to wearing when I get pregnant.
Work clothes (translation: baju kurungs) are all like ill-fitting kebayas.
I am just too lazy to watch what I eat, I seem to get gastric attacks more easily nowadays. I’m getting old !
These days, I have breakfast, lunch AND dinner. Yes, I have become as normal as you. Scary. Hehe.
I should be working out.
Even more lazy to do that.
Sigh !
The only person who’s happy is of course Mr Sunshine. -____-
I’ll tone up, when I feel like it. Haha.
I hope my body would still respond well to exercise like it always has.
If not, I’ll just binge eat and force myself to purge or vomit whatever I have consumed.

A cousin of mine passed away last Sunday in a motorcycle accident.
Sad. I was pretty close to him when I was a kid.
Another cousin of mine is currently texting me telling me about all the juicy(?) things she heard at his funeral yesterday.

On that day we will seal their mouths; their hands and feet will bear witness to everything they had done. (Surah Yasin 36:65)

What should I have for breakfast tomorrow ? I’m hungry already.

perfume anyone ?

Last night was funny, while the four of us were getting so fired up ranting about a particular topic, out came this guy dressed in a black top with hair looking softer than mine.
He came up to us talking in what I thought was Persian or some other language I don’t understand. I tried my very best to hold my laughter in by not looking at him.
“I’m from ………..testtsss fragrancess justss wantss yourss opinions”
Something like that lah.

He spritzed the strong-smelling Escada perfume on my hand. The others refused to be spritzed on. Hehe. Told him it the smell was not really to our liking and he left. He took an unusually long time to stuff the perfume back into his bag and leave.
And after he left we all looked at each other and burst our laughing.
Then Feli talked about how nowadays people get conned after sniffing perfume sprayed on them in public. Erk. I felt sorry for forcing her to sniff my hand. I practically shoved my hand in her face.
After a few minutes, a friend of his came up to us attempting to sell another brand of perfume. He spoke better. Hehe.

But the first guy was funny. Haha.

I’ve gotta go get ready for work.

rebung reflux.

I have this habit of lying down on my tummy, be it while doing my work, or going online on my lappie.
This habit is bad as I do it even after I eat.
My acid reflux seems to be getting worse.
Plus I cannot stop myself from eating spicy food lah. Non spicy food are just tasteless to me.

I had rebung gravy for lunch without knowing it was rebung gravy.
As I was carrying my plate to the cashier I smelled the strong stench of rebung (pardon me, but I don’t fancy rebung) and was wondering where it came from.
Lifted up my plate to my nose and sniffed my food, but well, it was too late.
I think I still have rebung breath.
Sorry, I have no idea what the English term for rebung is.

I fell asleep while lying in an MRI machine yesterday.

I have been having creepy nightmarish dreams lately.
I wonder why.

no scrubs.

I just had my bath.
I’m off today as I worked the graveyard 10 pm to 7 am shift yesterday.
Oh boy, last night was definitely not a night I would want to remember.
I had to go down to ward supply unit thrice, including once for a patient who was being discharged in the middle of the freaking night !
And there were patients non stop all throughout the night.
I could not even get a few minutes of shut eye.
I was knocked out the minute I got home.

So, I had a couple of hours of sleep, did a little house and room sweeping and a (very) little bathroom scrubbing.
I say a little because no matter how I try to clean, everything just seems still unkempt.
Especially when I am losing so much hair these days.

Lene received an offer to do Diploma in Science in UiTM Kuala Pilah !! Alhamdulillah.
She also received the offer to go for Matriculation in Malacca earlier, but she was not interested.
I am ecstatic ! I know she’s gonna do well.
And I am also grateful that Kuala Pilah is not that far. Alhamdulillah.
My little sister’s going to uni !
Oh boy, I am so happy !

It was sweet to know that Noe had bought a cake for Foot Seng (whose birthday was last Monday) and I yesterday, so all of us spent the evening after work having yummy cake ! I had millions of slices because they forced me to !
Noe took some photos so I’m gonna have to get them from her, then I’ll upload some for your viewing pleasure ok. Haha.
Aku pun tak tahu apa yang kelakar.

Met up with Annisa and Fira last Tuesday night for my belated birthday treat from Annisa. We had Tony Roma’s at Sunway Pyramid.
I had half a chicken ! Almost finished it lah. But it was delicious ! And the Chocolate Avalanche who Fira and Ann sweetly turned into my birthday cake was soooo heavenly !
Photos are with Ann, I left my camera at home which is ridiculous in my dictionary !

I’m in the Outpatient Pharmacy this month, so if any of you happen to drop by the hospital, you would probably see me dispensing medications while looking super stressed. Sigh.

Gosh, I’m starving.
I’m gonna head out for a bit to get food lah.

I was in the middle of typing a super duper long post to bore you people.
But I am super sleepy now.
I guess you people are super lucky eh.
Shall make an attempt again tomorrow.

sniffs no more.

Currently feeling: Breathless
Currently listening to: Nothing

*Sniff sniff*
Eh, no mucus.
*Sniiffff snifffffff*
Still none.
*Blows nose*
Nothing !

Hoooyyeaaahhhh !
Thank you Cetirizine and Loratadine (plus pseudoephedrine) !

The doctor I went to last night referred me to the ENT clinic, and when I asked him when should I go, he replied, “Bila you rasa you dah betul betul give up”.
On medications I suppose.
But funny lah his response.

Back to work tomorrow.

From now on, I vow to answer “Work is okay.” to everyone who asks me about work no matter how bad it gets. Oh boy, I’d be lying a whole lot after this.
I shall try to resist talking too much about it though, because then it’ll just dampen what’s left of my spirits.
I am focusing on getting this phase over and done with !

This must be the antihistamines talking.
I am never this positive.

Anywayyyyyyyy, there are 44 photos ahead, people.
Nope, I have not found my CS2 cd but I made do with my Elements.

First up, lunch with the Gombak people at Italiannies, The Curve. I can’t remember exactly when this took place. What I do remember is Navin just shaved his head, Gan had a secret relationship with one of our ex schoolmates, Kunasheela (kidding !) and some of us had a taste of a deceivingly yummy-looking cookie which actually tasted like plastic !

Macam gambar kelas, kan.

Ini awesome couple.

Ini pun awesome couple !

Next is Bryan’s pool partaayyyy at Pelangi Condo, Damansara !

Sexy lah tu konon saya posing macam itu. Hmph.

Drooling over the long (and hard ?) ‘E’.

We ran outta cups but it didn’t seem to stop them from getting refills.

The cake I did not get to taste. Sobs.

KLPac Open Day !

Bumped into Ann. Whee !

Along with Diana and Fira. *smiles*

The sister before she gave a kick ass performance of Alicia Keys’ No One.

Then there was a reunion with my high school best friends on CNY’s eve at Bora Ombak, Ampang. Such a lovely place.

Azi, Yati, Akey and Yusse.

The family CNY buffet steamboat dinner ! (I am aware that I am abusing the use of the exclamation marks)

Sotong disangka jagung. Hahahaha.

Daddy !

The sister who always looks hot even when eating.

Lunch at IKEA with the old Sis Sal.

CNY get together with my Gombak people.

Lene just got her bangs cut at that time.

HPJ Pharmacy Department’s Family Day at Desa Waterpark.

The kids’ games.

I could have scooped all those sweets in one go.

This was so physically challenging.

Hoyyeaaahhh !

My trip to Kuala Terengganu. *heart smiles*

Sekayu Waterfalls.

Yusse’s weddinnggg !! Tears were overflowing.


The new Sis Sal. *smiles*

And last but definitely not least, Sunshine. Mine ! This was last week, after meeting Daddy. *smiles*

That was tiring.

maxi wing.

Currently feeling: Satiated
Currently listening to: Nothing

I just realized that I purchased Laurier Maxi Wing instead of my usual Slim Wing variant.
Darn it.

I have not been too well for the past couple of days. (what’s new ?)
I seriously need to do something about this immune system of mine.
Just over an hour exposure of extreme cold (I swear there was something wrong with the air-cond that morning – freaking freezing I tell you !) at the hospital on Sunday and I was sneezing terribly.

I wonder if stress has anything to do with it.

Mr Sunshine blames it on lack of food, as usual.
Mind you, I have been eating and my butt circumference is expanding as I am typing this.
How disproportionate is that ?

I just revealed my vital stats online.

I want to change.
Even though I am not 100% sure about how ready I am, some other things has been hindering me from taking a specific step of change.
Personally I have been wanting to make that change for quite some time now and I’ve only spoken about it to a couple of my good friends.
I have been wondering about how the people around me would react.
Because honestly, I have seen unfavourable responses before.
It’s a change I don’t want to do half way.
Well, we’ll see how things go.

I have some serious planning to do.
I do not know where to start !
Excited and anxious at the same time !

I am getting pretty comfy at this new place of mine.
Astro can really be life changing.
I no longer have to sulk about not getting to watch Idol, live !
Plus both of my housemates are nice.
My only complain would be the millipedes I have been bumping into everywhere in the house.
Where do they come from lah ?
But all is good.

I wish this whole PRP period would end already.
It’s so emotionally and mentally challenging.
Not knowing who can genuinely trust, and going through every single day anticipating the worst really, really sucks.
SIX months more to go ! Sigh. *slaps head*

I have decided that I am not cut out to work in a hospital setting.
Is there such a thing as being over empathetic ?
Well that’s me.
Tears would start flowing at the sight of patients in pain, patients with cancer, patients looking sad etc.
Ergh. Annoying lah.
I am amazed at how the other pharmacists are able to keep their composure daily. I guess they’re used to it.
I have told Mr. Sunshine to open up a retail pharmacy and hire me.
I can come and go as I want. Lalalalala. *dreams*

Here’s a conversation the both of us had recently:

Mr Sunshine: Saya rasa OK apa orang panggil awak Mel.
Me: Hmm.
Mr Sunhine: Mel macam coMel. Awak kan comel.
Me: *bangga tapi maintain cool*
Mr Sunshine: Saya nak panggil awak Meme lah. Short untuk kememeh. Kememeh is apparently a term used for a person who cries easily/a lot.
Me: Hmmmmmmmmmm…
Mr Sunshine: Boleh tak ?
Me: Tak nak lah..
Mr Sunshine: Lepas tu awak panggil saya Sem.
Me: ???? (Sam ?)
Mr. Sunshine: Sebab saya handsome.

I don’t care if you don’t find that funny.
I do !

Gosh, tonight is getting pretty humid.
I think I need another bath.

Currently feeling: Sleepy
Currently listening to: Nothing

I have about an hour left before I get to leave the Emergency Department.
My tummy’s grumbling for no valid reason. I had rice for lunch yesterday and a bar of snickers and Bliss for dinner.
What more does it want ?
What it needs is exercise, that’s for sure.

Time really flies doesn’t it ? We’re almost at the end of March and i’m almost done with my Clinical unit.Still, there’s a whole lot more for me to do. I have not clerked enough cases.I have not even completed the ones I started clerking. I am so dead.I’d be in Ward Supply (In Patient Department) again starting 6 April.

I miss home !

There’s this wedding exhibition I am planning to go to this weekend.

I can’t wait to get back and sleep.
My eyes are burning.

This post has really been a waste of read, hasn’t it ?

i thought that phase was over.

Currently feeling: Sore
Currently listening to: Nothing

I just finished editing my proposal slides for tomorrow. *yawns*
I hope everything goes well. I did not really do that much researching for it.

I sat for my Pharmacy Jurisprudence exam for the second time this morning. This time around I put in more effort and actually studied for it (haha) so I’m hoping I’ll get through. Met quite a number of friends who were in the same boat at the examination place.

I was supposed to go back to work after the exam, but I went back to Noe’s place and dozed off until almost 4 pm !
Suka hati je kan. -_-

My back hurts, I think I should get to bed. Will blog more tomorrow.

sepuluh tau, bukan lapan atau sembilan. sepuluh !

Currently feeling: Anxious
Currently listening to: Nothing

There is no other way to start off this post than to (very) proudly say that I have a genius as my sister !
Lene scored 10 A’s for her SPM !!
I am so super duper happy for you !
I was beaming and almost jumped in joy at work when I found out.
Gila pandai adik aku ini.
She has submitted her UPU application earlier but I think there will be some updating to do seeing that her results are so good.
She does not want to do Pharmacy because she does not want to end up crying all the time like me.
Oh boy, what an example I have been. -___-
Well, we’ll just see later on how things go.

The whole family went for a mini celebratory lunch at Cozy Corner, Ampang Park on Friday. We had lunch AND dessert.
I was off on Friday as I had to work the night before.

Speaking of which, after getting off work at about 7 am that Friday morning, I drove straight to Gombak. To home sweet home. It took me one and a half hours to reach due to the heavy rain and there were a couple of road accidents along the way.
I tried going to bed at about 12 pm, managed to get 2 hours of rest then we had to leave for lunch. I still could not sleep after we got back from lunch. It’s not that I did not try, but my brain kept telling me that I’ve got loads of work to complete (research proposal, user interventions data, research data collection form, studying for the jurisprudence exam etc etc etc) *insert kepala serabut emoticon*, and my body just would not shut down.
Not to forget the fact that I got myself into a little accident involving Coco and a drain that morning too ! It seems that I’m not the only one who has affinity for drains.
Coco’s left side is slightly (consoling myself here) dented now. *cries*
As a result, I had a massive headache and I was starting to get real cranky.
I only dozed off after midnight that day OK !

I still do not know where I put my Photoshop CS2 cd. It’s frustrating lah. I do not know any other way to resize my photos. So my posts will be photo-less until I find that bloody cd, or get a new one. Sigh.

I had breakfast with Annisa at McDonald’s Mutiara Damansara yesterday morning. We both came to the sad conclusion that in life you’re bound to meet idiotic insensitive people (who seem like they always have their heads in the clouds, oblivious to the fact that they make other people’s lives miserable every day) everywhere you go and it’s up to us to adapt to their stupid antics. Do not let one (or twenty) insignificant people take you down and make you unhappy be it at work or school or anywhere lah !
But it certainly is easier said than done.
Some genius should come up with a vaccination/immunization jab for us to face these twerps.
Lene, are you listening ? Hehe.

Daddy’s not feeling too well. He has been coughing and sneezing since yesterday.
I have a wedding to go to later but I feel bad leaving him at home.
I’m still contemplating whether to go or not.
They say kalau tak pergi nanti tak ada orang nak datang majlis kita.
But, but, but…

I hate Sundays.
They always lead to Mondays. Dreadful Mondays.

I need to learn to relax a little lah.
How do I not let stress get to me ?
When it gets to me, it really gets to me OK. I become this manic monster.
I have always been the type who gets worked up so easily over almost everything.

Have I mentioned I hate Sundays ?
