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.

urti ? age ? rhinitis ? sinusitis ?

Currently feeling: SICK !
Currently listening to: Nothing.

I am still sick.
I am starting to think that I have gained immunity to the effects of antihistamines. I don’t think that’s possible but like seriously lah, what the hell is wrong with me ?
I am tired of staying in bed, coughing and sneezing my nose off.
Tired of this headache.

To add to all that, today my bowel system just decided that it would be fun to purge its contents (in a watery form) out of my body.
I dare not eat anything to avoid running to the toilet.

I am stressed.
And as a result, my eczema is flaring up. *scratches left leg*
Erggggghhhhhhh !

I have been to FOUR different doctors.
I have been compliant !

What else do I have to do ?

I miss Mummy.

*insert kepala serabut emoticon*

my himalayan quest.

Currently feeling: Hot

If any of you still remember, I complained about how I was losing hair a couple of months ago. It was really really bad. I was sweeping heaps of hair from my lap every time I sit down. I was so ashamed of going out into public especially on public transportations which requires me to sit and sweep my fallen hair of my body. My hair was so thin, my scalp was visible. Honest. You can ask the sister if you think I am being dramatic.
At first I thought it was due to stress and bad diet, but then I decided to try changing my shampoo. Lene suggested the brand Himalaya for it’s supposedly natural herbal ingredients.
I saw and felt the difference from the first time I used the shampoo and conditioner. My hair was not falling ! Well, not as much as it used to.
It has been two months since then and I dare not part with their shampoo and conditioner. They smell great too !
I was running out of conditioner a few days ago and I told Lene to try to help get it from the Himalaya store outlet in KLCC but it was out of stock. It was not available in Guardian there too where they usually have Himalaya products. She asked the salesperson whether it would be available in MidValley and the salesperson said yes. Being the paranoid person that I am because I just have to get my hands on a new tube of the conditioner before the old one finishes, I decided to go to MidValley after work yesterday night. I should have known that the KTM Komuter would be super super packed with people, all heading back to their hometown for the Chinese New Year holidays. So there I was, standing and sweating profusely in the middle of an ocean of people waiting for the train to arrive. That’s was not so bad. After pushing and pushing to get on the train, I was stuck. Stuck and sandwiched in between three men and a pole. I did not have to hold on to anything. I was securely sandwiched ! I was still sweating madly OK.
Huh, all that for a tube of hair conditioner.
When I arrived at MidValley, I rushed to the LG floor with much anxiety only to hear the salesgirl cheerfully say, “Oh, it’s out of stock right now, probably would be available next month.”
My heart sanked. Oh wait, it actually stopped beating. I wanted to cry as I was texting Lene to tell her that erm, I wanted to cry.
But then I saw Guardian which was opposite the Himalaya and walked into it.
Ahhhhhh there they were, six tubes of Himalaya Hair Detangler and Conditioner arranged nicely on the rack waiting for me to bring them home. I honestly stood there and thought about buying ALL six OK.
I almost jumped in joy. I know I was smiling to myself because the girl next to me was looking at me with a worried look.
I only bought one tube just in case any of you were curious.
But yeah, Guardian saved me from a heart attack.

OK cukup lah drama malam ini kan ?

I had trouble getting some shut-eye last night.
One reason being the pain I was in in and another being I just wasn’t sleepy.
I watched When Harry Met Sally and hoped that Mr. Sunshine would wake up from his slumber to sweet talk me out of my misery. If you guessed he did not, then you’re right.
When I finally dozed off, I kept being waken up by the pain.
Can you blame me for being cranky ?
I am chicken AND sleep deprived !

My dentist just gave me a call.
He reassured me that things were gonna be okay in a couple of days and that it wouldn’t hurt during the removal of the stitches next Monday.
He owes me lunch if it did.
He was laughing while asking me whether I could exercise.
*straight face*
Can make fun some more !
You see the other day after the surgery I asked him, “So I can’t exercise lah ?”
And he went, “No, avoid exercising for this week. No vigorous movements that will increase blood flow which can lead to increased bleeding.”
He paused and continued, “But why do you want to exercise for ?”
Funny guy, eh ?
We all need exercise, doctor !
Don’t get me wrong, I love my dentist. Not LOVE love, just love.
He’s nice.

I just want my exercise.

Day three post dental surgery and Daddy says the swelling has reduced slightly.
I don’t see any difference.
I still feel like I’m chewing a small part of my cheek when I try to close my mouth.

Oh well, apart from all that dental drama, my life is pretty drama-less nowadays.
I do nothing except sleep, eat, exercise (pre-dental drama), go online, watch movies, read occasionally, and joke around with Daddy and Lene.
So, no other complaints.
*tries to smile*

My eyelid has been twitching since two days ago.
It has happened before la, but right now the twitching is starting to get on my nerves.
It turns out that I might be experiencing eyelid myokymia.
According to, eyelid myokymia is defined as fine continuous contractions of the eyelid muscle, typically involving one of the lower eyelids, less often an upper eyelid. The condition occurs spontaneously, sometimes triggered by stress, fatigue, caffeine or alcohol. In most cases, the condition is benign and ceases of its own accord.

Stress. Check. Exams.
Fatigue. Check. Exams !
Caffeine. Check. Exams ! I’ve been downing too much Coke Light.

Oh well, it’ll all be over soon.
InsyaAllah, Aamin.
