Why so suaaaaaay.

1. I have a limping dog.

For some reason, she started to limp and hopped about on 3 legs. It didn’t look like she was in any pain, and occasionally, I catch her walking on all 4 legs. It’s really not much of a problem (I hope), but it gets annoying when she doesn’t dare to climb down the stairs to do her business and ends up deciding that our bedroom doors/mum’s bed will be her new peeing spot.

She’s getting better now. She doesn’t limp now, but you can still see her favouring that leg. And the peeing thing.

She’s also quite a drama queen, so here’s a video of her doing a “look at me I very the ke lian ):” limp.

This was during the whole period where she climbed up the stairs to chase after my nugget meal, jumped up the bed for scratches and hugs, and jumped down the bed to look forlornly at my nugget meal on the desk. All on 4 legs. So really, her leg is fine (maybe just sensitive)

2. I have a broken doll hand.

):

The doll’s hands were wrapped together with the body, that means they weren’t individually wrapped up like what most would do ): I guess that’s why the fingers snapped. I don’t get it though. I’ve ordered from infinitidoll before, and they wrapped my girl body’s hands individually, so why didn’t they for this boy ):..

Also, one of his eye is smaller than his other eye. I’m sad. Am wondering if I should get someone to sand it open, but $$$$$ SOB.

I’m hoping for infinitidoll to send me a new spare hand.

3. I scratched my car.

I’m an idiot.

Thankfully, the damage wasn’t drastic, it’s not like the door couldn’t open up or you can see a huuuge dent or something. In fact, after scrapping away most of the concrete plaster off my car, you wouldn’t really notice it. Sort of. I guess. I don’t really want to send this sort of damage for servicing, but idk. I’m trying my best not to let my mother notice it hahaha /cough

I’m thinking of getting touch up paint.

On the bright side…

Exams are almost over!!!!

My tyre got murdered

And I only drove this car for exactly 60 days /cry

About two nights ago, while I was driving back home, some shitty metal rod/nail thing went through my tyre. I was in a rather deserted area at that time, well, there were like one or two cars every 15 mins or so, but it was deserted enough to have mongrels walking out from their hiding place to look at me. Believe me, it wasn’t very comforting to see them be so daring about it. Anyways, I stopped by a bus stop where there is more light, and idk why but I made sure that the lamp post near it had a security camera fixed to it. Just in case if something drastic happened to me, at least it got recorded down.

Also, before I continue, lemme just say that I’m very upset that I’m getting all these unfortunate things happening to me day after the other. From the mysterious jam on Friday, the plumbing system and lights in my house failing on Saturday, the electronic safe failing + the really shitty people in the concert on Sunday, to my taobao loot missing + dead tyre on Monday..

Vroom vroom vroom~

My new shiny car is here! đŸ˜€

Not so watermelon opps! XD

Not so watermelon opps! XD

I’ve settled very comfortably in the car now. Driving and parking is a hell lot easier. It helps that I have a GPS navigator too lol. That’s as personalised as the car’s gonna get. And one iphone cable. It needs a mascot LOL.

I hope the “new-ness” of the car stays longer~ I didn’t allow my dog to get in the car because I was afraid her smell will stick in the car like our previous one. Mayyyybe when the car gets older, then I might reconsider.

I’m glad to say that I’ve gotten a lot better at driving and parking. It sounds a little weird, but I can’t wait for this car to hit its first 1000km. I’ll be like YEY finally I can drive faster on empty roads! /VROOOM

Random updates

Horseriding lesson is still as frustrating as ever

Went there with steel determination and fire burning in my eyes, all ready to kick the horse to make sure it trots. All of that went out of the window the moment the horse refused to budge after my first kick. And then I proceeded to act like a wimp and flapped my legs frantically while begging it to move. I’m lousy I know.

The instructor advised us to get a short whip orz. Stupid Bob and Rocky all your fault!

Karaoke was fun

Had a moment where we keyed in several old school Jrock Vkei songs. Even though I had no lyrics, Malice Mizer’s Syunikiss was sing-able. But omg no hiragana thingies for their kanji sfjkahkjhsdjkn.

And just oh so randomly, I spotted one of the tenimyu songs This is the Prince of Tennis and just keyed it in HAHA. It was surprisingly, fun. I feel this urge to key in random other songs from tenimyu in future karaoke sessions.

And it’s been a while, but hurray for the revival of Sendai Kamotsu songs in karaoke HAHAHA.

I’m really glad I made myself use the microphone in recent sessions. I realised how much fun it can be belting out songs, or when we’re able to sing together. Even if I can’t read half the lyrics LOL.

I’m still upset that I can’t do a vibrato at all, which is so so so so so crucial to any drama-mama song. My attempts at them are very lame.

I also want to be able to accomplish random rapping parts for some songs. SEAMO why your songs so hard to sing?!

Driving recklessly on the road as always

But I’m getting better at maintaining my composure and winging it if I take the wrong route. I’m getting a Swift! đŸ˜€ Green colour! No I’m not going to turn it into a watermelon LOL. But I will love to personalise it here and there! I’m very excited actually. Driving the current car is very difficult for me for many reasons.

I should start looking for GPS navigation systems..

I miss playing games

I really do.

I miss the addiction.

I can’t believe I’m harbouring stupid thoughts about wanting a PC just for gaming.

I refuse to boot Windows into my Mac. I’m someone who cannot deal with viruses at all, so I would like to have at least one computer that will last me for a lifetime. Plus if I could resist the urge to boot Windows so that I can have all the illegal free programs for school purposes, I wouldn’t just cave in because I want to play games.

Too bad I can’t use my father’s PC or laptop. He tinkered with them too much till I can’t use them at all ;;

Test Driving

Just went around looking for cars! I took a Toyota Vios and a Suzuki Swift for a test drive hehe. They are a lot easier to control compared to our current car. I’m leaning towards the Swift (totally went VROOOOOM on the highway LOL), but we shall see how. Even though I’m the one driving the car, the wallet belongs to my mother, so she gets the final say lol.

One of my mother’s brother (and his son) accompanied us to view cars since we know nothing about car buying, and I bet my mother’s antics amused him to no end. To her, buying a car is like buying a new phone. Before we narrowed down to those two cars, she was swayed by the Honda Jazz’s sunroof, the Chevrolet Spark’s LCD screen (and cuteness), and many other car’s random exciting features (like if the seats at the back could be pushed forward flat to reveal a much bigger storage, or if the door opens differently, “OOH AHHHH THIS CAR IS REALLY GOOD!!”)

My requirements for a car is quite simple (and vague). Looks decent, not asking for attention, not too hugeass for me to deal with, easy to drive, Okay. I really didn’t want the Jazz because it felt really long, and the front looked er, “fierce” hahaha. Big deal about the sun roof; I can’t even enjoy it while I’m on the road. Plus I can imagine how distracting it will be when I drive during night time.

Driving the Vios really felt like I was back learning how to drive in the driving center. Simple basic car, really sensitive controls, and the car super light. It was really easy dealing with the car. I wasn’t given much of a chance to test how it would feel if I drive at a much faster speed (like on a highway), but even at a semi-decent speed made me feel like if I were to drive any faster, the car will fly off. That’s the only bad part I guess.

Driving the Swift was really fun. I got a chance to drive on the highway, and it was so stable, I ended up driving at a really high speed and didn’t feel the least bit threatened. Brakes will take a while for me to adjust to, but any brake out there is more sensitive than my current car haha. And it was soooo small, U-turning and parking was a breeze. And, I got parking tips from my uncle and the sales assistants /shot. To hell with the “proper way” of reverse parking, I’m so gonna do the one they taught me. So much easier.

Okay enough about cars. I’ve got another form of “transport” to deal with tomorrow. Horses. Watch out. I’m gonna nudge you to death D< If I ever get Rocky or Bob, before I even get the whip, I'm slapping your sides RAWR. AND KARAOKE TOMORROW~~~~~~~~~~~~

Vrooooooom!!!!

I drove O< My first epic driving adventure was to go to Central at Clarke Quay. Jasmine helped me checked the maps, and it was her virgin map reading experience LOL. We took 2 detours after exiting the expressway because we were on the wrong lane to turn, but whatever, we did it \o/ And parking at the multi-storey carpark was uneventful save for the screaming we did when we had to continuously go up 5 levels of circling.

And to make it even more dangerous, we drove to Admiralty during peak hour. And then back to Khatib. We got lost so many times LOL.

But I can conclude that I don’t want the car. Driving it alone is so.. gloomy.

I’ve talked to my mother about it, and we decided to sell the car for good. Her only priority is that it’s smaller, so I’m left to do the whole choosing car part. And sob, I don’t know how to go about it. I don’t even know what to look out for. Mum mentioned picanto, but that’s cus it’s the only car she knows of. I’ll be needing a lot of help with this.

Today will be the 7th day. We’re gonna huddle up and sleep together LOL.

I’m handling things a lot better than I expected, but at the same time, I’m still very surprised at how I can easily cry over the smallest thought of him. I can be very happy when I want to be because after the cremation, it felt like there was a bigger sense of closure =D (more…)
