#20thingsaboutme

the sampat-ness in me

1. I LOVE dogs, but I can't keep them for I have a queen at home who doesn't like furry pets. :'(
- the thing about my grandma is, she doesn’t like any furry pets. My mom brought Kin Boy and Baby back from where she used to stay… and boy did they have hard time with my grandma… U know how ppl say dogs don’t bite unless they are forced to the corner… yea… my grandma got bitten by Kin Boy. So, imagine how she treated them when they were around. So Kin Boy passed on due to old age and Baby ran away bcos the gate was open when the fire works were boooooming away… no more fur babies at home. oni my wugui. even the poor kitten i found she said she wanna kill it if i wanna keep it. :(

kin boy

2. I just made the worst decision in my life few days back.
- I found a kitten about a week ago and asked for help from a friend to foster this little guy. I know the littlest stuffs about cats, let alone a month old kitten. So, after about a day or 2, we sent him to the vet for a general check up. The vet gave him deworm medication. On 2nd day after the visit to the vet, the worm did come out and it grossed out my friend. However, the nightmare didn’t end there. He was still purging. So, I decided to ask for help in FB to get some financial help so that I can send him to the hospital. I was really grateful that a few of my friends did donate a handful and some gave advices as well. One of the advice was to feed a little bit of raw chicken liver to strengthen him. At first, I was taken back a little but I made a little reading and it seemed ok. So, we went ahead to feed him some. It wasn’t much. Just a tiny bit. Then, he purged and vomited. At first I thought maybe he is not used to it. So, we brushed it off and he went to sleep. When he woke up, the real nightmare begins. He woke up, I fed him with water. He always drinks water. After water, we tried feeding him some of the canned food that he usually eats. Then, he tried to stand. He can’t stand. We helped him up, he fell forward. He went weak drastically. It was about 12am or 1am at that time. I made numerous calls to Animal Hospitals. I started with Gasing, no one answered. So I called, Tun Razak twice and someone answered. He said the consultation fee itself is RM250 as it is after normal hours. I got shocked. I tried Gasing. After a few calls, someone finally picked up. The consultation is RM200. I was pretty disgusted with the person who answered the phone from Gasing. He was like, "up to u la, up to u la". Anyways, I was worried the funds I got from the donation couldn’t cover everything. Me and my friend were pretty tight. We discussed and at the end we decided to send him, money we talk later. So I called Gasing to make sure there is a vet in, I called A LOT of times, no one answered. The reason we chose Gasing not because the consultation is cheaper or we admire the poor service the guy gave, but its bcos its nearer to us, so even if the little guy gets admitted, its near enough for us to go visit him everyday. Gasing didn’t answer and we didn’t wanna go there and end up there is no vet, so I called Tun Razak and there is a vet there. So we rushed to KL. After checking up, the vet said he has a lot of virus symtoms. Diabetic, anaemia, etc. We did mention about the raw chicken liver, and he said it is not advisable to feed it because it is high in iron that a kitten cannot take. Moreover, because it is raw, there could be parasites. We checked if that is the cause. It’s the cause of speeding things up. The symptoms are all there, it’s just a matter of time.

1st pict: that was the last pict i took on the last day. that was when he went weak drastically. 
the 2nd pict, all curled up ready to sleep... 
the middle pict, with the dust pan : the pict i took on the day i found him. i was sitting in front of the dust pan, and he just walked towards me and curl himself up on my thigh... T.T
the pict with the groomer : he has all these sticky stuffs on all four of his legs and the groomer is nice enough to try to remove them slowly. 
the other 3 picts that looked like he's on my thigh, thats the only way to keep him calm while i was driving alone. 

Well, there is no one to be blamed here. ALL of us did it out of good will. It may not help the little guy, perhaps it did help other kitties before. She may have suggested it, but it was our decision to feed him. So yes, I made the worst decision ever, which is… I decided to feed him the raw chicken liver, given the fact that I know the littlest things about kitties.

3. Ice-Cream is my comfort food.
- After everything, we headed to mcD and I wanted ice cream. Unfortunately, the menu has changed to breakfast menu… so no ice cream. :(

4. Porridge is my comfort food too. :P
- When its gloomy rainy day… yes, weather affects me sometimes. So when its rainy and its cold outside, my best friend is porridge.

5. I was straight and I was bent at the age of 18, and now I go both ways.
- Hehe. I was curious at the age of 18. So I went out and explore. I thought I’m gonna be stuck with just 1 side then. Little did I know, few years later I did hook up with a guy. And well… it didn’t went well. Turns out I am the 3rd party. I am happily attached to my current gf. :D

6. I love seeing colorful stuffs but my wardrobe mostly consist of black and dark blue... and more black...

10. When I emo, I like to take my car for a spin. Furthest I've been is Cyberjaya.
- nothing beats speeding like a mad cow when I emo. The adrenaline rush just takes away that emo feeling. A lot of people hates Federal highway, but I love federal highway. I may not be a lane cutter pro… but that awesome feeling when u have that one inch only and u made it… phewww… ok… its dangerous. Kids, don’t do this. Oh, I only do this when I'm driving alone, so dont worry about getting in my car ok? *grins

Maybe we did but being me, there was 4… I cant remember which is which and I probably think like… aihyaa~ F it. U r just wugui (turtle). Done.

13. I can’t get enough of shoes and bags… Then again, I think most girls got this issue. Haha~
- even I know when I do not have money to buy them, I just walk in. Carry carry. Try try. And walk out… regretting. T.T When I have my own house, the smallest room will be dedicated to bags and shoes ONLY! I do not have a lot to fill the room now, but I shall fill it when I have that room! *dream big

14. I’m a homey person.

Owing people money

I know money is not everything... But... 

Money makes u learn about people. Read that clearly, people. Not friends. 

Once, or perhaps many times. I lend money to some people. The amount is not much, RM50? RM100? RM150? That’s all. Honestly, for me, once the money is handed over to someone, never ever believe when they say “i promise i will pay back when i can”. Cos 99.99999 out of 100 times, it will never happen. Well, to those who paid back. I appreciate it and do not judge them. Mind you, i am no millionaire, but i know how it feels like to have no money for food/rent/loans etc until u need to resort yourself to asking help from people. So i actually tried my very best to squeeze every penny i have to help u. And if that RM50, RM100 or RM150 is able to help ease your situation a little, i am glad. 

So, people owe you money and u dont know how to ask back from them? Why do we need to go through this? The money by right belongs to YOU. Well, i am not saying that u can go “hoi, fucker! Where’s my money! Pay back or i will scratch your car and tell your mother u owe me money! I know where u live you SOB!” im saying that just ask nicely like “hey, im kinda tight this time round and needed the money back, do u think u can pay back some?” Believe me, it is also difficult for me to ask back for money bcos, i know the reason why the person have to ask for loan. So its like, im asking back for money eventho i know u r tight but i have to cos i am damn freaking tight in budget naooo... But sometimes, even by asking nicely... People take things for granted. 

I can totally understand that if you dont wanna hurt the friendship. If you value the friendship more than the money den, good for you. I cant. If that makes me mean, so be it. 

To those who got their money back. Please, at least appreciate it. When they text you and told u that they have returned the money, have the courtesy to check and inform them that the money is in the account already. Please do know that it takes them to brave themselves up and tried their very best to put on few inches thick of their skin to actually open their mouth to ask to pinjam. Probably you will be wondering “why so gan jeong? Bank in d den ok la” Have you ever thought that the system may go malfunction and screw up the transaction? So u checked few days later and the money is in. Thats great! So what if it did screw up? And she paid, she got the receipt/slip. R u gonna demand her to pay again? Or r u gonna just leave it and loss few thousand bucks and say she didnt pay back? She does owe u a ‘ren qing’ but that doesnt mean u can talk to her like shit also. 

And you! You owe the person money. And not just money u r owing. U r owing the person a ‘ren qing’. When someone is asking back for the money, the least you could do is a just reply and tell them why u cant pay back. Not by ignoring. You know, i seriously dont mind if u at least reply me and let me know that you cant pay back at the time being. You are still a friend if u could at least just do that. 

So above the mentioned are all about friends... What about couples? Who already broke up? I know some couples have their expenses set as whats mine is mine and whats yours is yours. Which is good. Unfortunately, some couples actually take things for granted. As convenient as, “baby, can swipe for me first? I will pay back when i get my salary.” or maybe “baby, i wanna go with you, help me buy ticket oso” or “baby, i like this [insert expensive item] and promo is until end of this month but my salary no more d.” Well, things like that la. The amount is of cos, not small when everything is added up. When u r still an item, of cos there is no such thing as debt. Or maybe u can take as long as forever to pay back. Cos at that point of time, u think being together is forever. So, at the end, when things got sour and u guys broke up. And your now ex is asking back for the money that u said u will pay back. Bear in mind, it is only for the amount that u said u will pay back, not the gifts. 

Social media is a wonderful thing. It is very transparent if you are an attention seeker. Posting up every single thing that happened in your life. It is so transparent that when u said u cant pay back, it is truly unbelievable. 

What is the past, let it pass. But what have been said, keep your words. Yes. Words are cheap. In fact, words are free. But sometimes, words are the ones that is most powerful. Hence, verbal warnings, verbal authorizations, verbal agreements etc are able to take into actions. So when u r a couple, and u said u will pay back. Pay back. Eventho u guys broken up. 

To those whom i am indeed owing money, thank u very much. Deep down, i definitely appreciate it and thankful for the utmost understanding and forever in debt. U know who u r.

To those who owes me money? It only takes RM100 deposit for the learning lesson and RM50 to learn that u r cheap. Dirt cheap. 



P/S, someone approached me and wanted to loan some money for health purpose when i was drafting this post. which unfortunately, i cant cos i oso broke nao. to that someone, i hope you dun take this post and relate to your situation, ok? i was drafting this post when this other person doesnt reply me when i asked for money that he owed me gazillion years ago and he ignored me.

My grandma's 80th birthday

After decided to have Grand Imperial Restaurant as my grandma’s 80th birthday celebration location from the hunt, my aunt went ahead with some discussions among the siblings and daughter in laws. We increased from 2 tables to 5 tables initially, but some couldn’t make it. So the final amount was 4 tables. 

Once I reached, my grand auntie said I slimmed down d! wahahahahaaa! 

"slimmed" me

At first I thought me and gf will be late because we had some chores to do, but when we reached, my uncle got lost. So me and gf drove out again to look for him. Then we headed back to the restaurant with my uncle. 

me and ahma

Dishes were served, the food was not bad for me. Quite acceptable. Honestly, how the food tastes that night doesn’t really bother me because the overall reunion was great. 

Half way through, the waitress push in a cart with a birthday cake on it. And boy did my grandma looked surprised and touched. 




It was a great reunion, considering we sometimes can’t even get to meet up during Chinese New Year.  We had a lot to drink thanks to my cousin for the wine and liquor. We had a lot of yum seng sessions which “yum seng” is replaced by “happy birthday to you”. We had aunties taking selfies, which I teased why never buy the monopod? We had a lot of photograph sessions.





Before everyone left, my aunt and mom distributed longevity gifts and ang pao. Then slowly, the crowd reduces. 

A slide show I've put together to view on the TV

My usual Saturdays

Over the years, our habit changes. From having exciting Saturdays jumping from malls to malls then at night from one place to another for second rounds, to a boring married couple weekend. I’m not complaining tho. I prefer this laid back kinda Saturdays. 

After le gf’s hectic day at work on Fridays, we will either go for movies or stay in for downloaded/stream movies. Then we will sleep at about 12 or 1am and wake up after 12 hours of sleep. Whichever of us wakes up first will continue rolling in our bed, playing our phones until we cannot tahan and feeling hungry already, we will wake the other fella up. 

We will dress in our sloppiest clothes we have and head out to the restaurant near our place for brunch. She will have her usual ‘cham ping’ and I will have my usual ‘milo kosong ping’ or plain water. Whichever I feel like having that day. Our orders will be either lou shu fun soup, chicken rice, wan tan mee or fried kuay teow mee. But due to my health condition, we didn’t order kuay teow mee for quite some time now. 

cham ping bungkus... for more ice and more to drink compare to the usual plastic 'glass' they serve.

lou shu fun soup. :D

The chicken rice is by far the best chicken rice I’ve ever tasted. His chili is damn awesome. Ah… I shall blog about it someday… 

After brunch, we will either go for groceries shopping or go home to do house chores. Well… most of the time she will do them. Washing the clothes, hanging the clothes to dry and ironing the clothes. I will help out easy stuffs like… erm… dusting and wiping the stuffs in the room? Then I will transform to be a couch potato. :P

Then comes dinner time, we either cook or go dine out with her parents at the restaurant. We will hang around at the restaurant chit chatting a bit, sometimes will go back to her parent’s place a while, sometimes we will head home straight after dinner. 

Once we reached home, we will hang around outside of the house a while. Talk, watch the fish, kacau-ing the cactus, etc. 

Then after shower, and continue with whatever show we were watching until both of us doze off. Zzzzz…
