Funny that the blogging bug only hits me hard when exams are around the corner. Don’t worry about me, this is how I relax and I’ve already set aside what I need to study tonight and have been ticking off topics from a study list that I printed out weeks ago.
I need to tell the few of you who have expressed interest in purchasing the earring tower from my classmate’s sister’s boyfriend’s mum that she’s not selling anymore. So sad. 🙁 I was actually contemplating buying a lot from that shop in Sungai Petani which ironically, stocks up from shops in KL. -_-
So I thought I might as well come back to look at the shops before buying those in bulks(for those of you who want). I remember April saying that Nichii Fashion City sells some. But that’s like in one of her blog posts back in 2005.
It’s thoughts like these that keeps me going during the exam season. In my quest to find the earring towers, I have a clear idea of where I’ll be hitting come mid april(when I have my holidays). I’m gonna go to the area around Petaling Street/Central Market. I’m going to walk into all the quaint little shops in the area because I know they stock the weirdest and coolest things. I just need to open my eyes wider to see if I can get any treasures.
I’ve only ever driven by those areas and for years I’ve wanted to get on my legs and trawl the entire area and just lose myself checking out little knick knacks in those old shops in the small alleys.
Another area to hit would be Jalan Hang Tuah. Apparently Lala boutiques get their stocks from there and you have to buy in bulk, but I’m always up for a treasure hunt so that’ll be good.
And the last stop would probably be Jalan Tun Razak(issit?) where Nichii Fashion City is located. But there’s no LRT around that area so I’ll need the car. Sigh.
Oh well, I just can’t wait to pretend to be a treasure hunting bargaining tourist during the holidays!:)
Another great holiday plan of mine is to make an appointment with A Cut Above Academy to get my hair chopped(just a bit) and rebonded! Mun Teng got her’s done there for only RM120 and her hair was waist length. Mine would probably be waist length too once I’ve rebonded them. I mean I’ll miss the natural curls that I usually get when I wake up in the morning or after I’ve had a good afternoon nap… but I think I won’t miss the way my hair is sprawled all over my shoulder thus creating a damn messy look. Rebonded hair, here I come! Don’t you guys dare talk me out of it. For years I’ve been considering this… now that I have the guts, I’m going through with it.
We’re thinking of getting the owners to cut down the Papaya tree outside our house. It’s so gross. Papayas that drop to the ground are left to rot and then after a few months, there’ll be nothing left because the rotten papaya probably turned into gas after so long. Which is good.
The house is so dirty that we(three students! *gasp*) are actually thinking of hiring a part time cleaner to come clean the entire place up. RM30-50 per visit. Say, 4 to 5 hours. That’s not too bad isn’t it?
I was just telling Chee Kiang that and I told him, “I don’t care, next time you and I will get a maid,”
“No! But the kids will do the chores! The oldest will be responsible for buying bread and the youngest is responsible for boiling water! They must wash their own plates after eating, we can do the rest. And when they reach their teenage years, they must wash their own toilets,” he said.
“Wah, didn’t know you’re quite the disciplinarian!” I said, laughing. Good lah. Syukur syukur. I can’t see myself ordering my kids around to do the housework because just the mere thought of doing house work sends me into spasms of laziness that can only be cured by climbing into bed.
“So who’s going to bathe the dog?” I asked.
“It’s going to be a family thing. We’ll do it together every week,”. Wah my darling so clever..
“Sure boh, just one time kua, then the mother will clean the dog alone for the rest of the dog’s life,” I predicted. It’ll definitely come true one lor I tell you.
“I’ll clean the aquarium lor,” he said.
“What?! Why are we having an aquarium? ewww. So smelly!” I must have my say in things as early as I can, yes?
LOL. The both of us then snapped back to reality. Better concentrate on finals(his) and module exams(mine) first.
I was just clicking around my blog. Was wondering if you guys have ever read my painstakingly written About Me page, About The Blog page and supplemented my non-blogging days by clicking on the link to my R.age blog entries?(malas to link, links can be found on my sidebar.)
So far I’ve got like 5-6 posts there amidst other r.age bloggers on duty. One post per week is the requirement and apparently I’m supposed to blog about topics that I haven’t already covered in my own blog.
I guess it’s fun because with my blog, I can’t cover as many grounds because the people in real life reads my blog. But with R.age, it reaches out to far off strangers who would not terasa when they read my entries there. And the people who read my blog don’t read my r.age entries as often as they’d like, so it’s a good thing. 🙂 I’m happy.
It’s also nice to receive messages from friends to tell me that my article came out(so far my entries have appeared every week, it’s almost as if I have a weekly column!) and to see my name in Youth2 as a ‘resident blogger’ in the little sidebar where they promote R.age’s weekly updates.
But of course, the happiest thing about writing for R.age is that I get paid RM50-100(depending on length) for every blog entry published. The least I’ll get is RM200, the most will be RM400. Yum!:D
I’ve no idea what to save up for. LOL. I seldom find myself not knowing what I need to buy. I have no wants at the moment. Very very strange. Do I want an iPod? No. Do I want a PDA? No. Do I want a DSLR? No.(damn heavy).
But I do want a pink Vaio laptop! Like the one 5xmom has! But it’ll take me approximately 10 months to save up to buy one. So forget it laa. And this laptop of mine is still functioning well……..just that it’s not pink. 🙁
Here are some photos from classes this week:
We did restorations for buccal and occlusal cavities. Nothing you’ve never seen before.
Here’s Jimmy, looking all professional-like.
Filling up the cavity with composite by increments and then light curing it. Too lazy to take photos of each step. Not like you guys would be interested also!
The end product with fissure sealant on top.
Lie Yuen loves her patient alot. He never talks when she’s working on him, he never scolds her, he never resists her attempts to stick all kinds of material in his mouth and he never shouts in pain when she makes a mistake.
What a mess. But oh so convenient! I think I’m beginning to know how to utilize the ridges on the tray. I balance my instruments there. I’m not sure if it’s correct, but I’ll know when my lecturer tells me off.
And the plasma tvs are up and working! So wonderful!:)
I just can’t get over the dangling tripod.
Have I told that I have two new best friends now?
The dental probe rocks!
And the mouth mirror too! At least I am learning to do dentistry with both hands now. (yesyes, let’s try to forget the fact that I only used one hand previously. Shh. shh. Have I just scared away all potential patients?)
