When someone says ‘apothecary’, it reminds me so much of Harry Potter. It also makes me think of a shop with weird kind of potions and medicines and such and not like the current pharmacy that we have in Malaysia where it’s more like a mini version of a hospital/clinic. I guess shops like Guardian, Watson etc. can be called a drug store.

You can visit Smallflower for apothecary products online.

Now I feel like reading Harry Potter again. I actually have so many books that I need to finish reading. Eeep.

First Post For 2015

HAPPY NEW YEAR 2015

Glad 2014 is over. It’s been a really bad year that I don’t even want to remember. There’s not a single good thing that happened that year. Beginning of the year I lost some cats, mid of the year I lost some cats, end of the year I lost my dearest kitty unexpectedly. I also had the worst kind of sickness mid and almost end of the year. Even right now one kitty is sick.

Beginning of the year MH370 went missing, mid of the year MH17 was shot down, end of the year AirAsia QZ8501 crashed (technically not our flight but Indonesian but the brand is ours so it’s still related), plus massive flooding in some states that caused massive devastation.

My deepest sympathy and heartfelt condolences to the people affected by the tragedies mentioned above.

Then my iMac died, my TV died, my aicond died, my car died a day before Christmas, now my computer mouse died…

As for my life, eh. The only thing that’s worth remembering are the fun time I had when my friend came to Ipoh or went I went to KL to karaoke, I got myself a Kindle (FINALLY) after wishing for years, I went to Langkawi, I finally could drive my Myvi again after a few problems, celebrated Raya at my kampung for the first time in over a decade, and… that’s pretty much it.

Usually I’d write a post before new year and reminisce but don’t wanna remember anything. Didn’t even feel like celebrating, didn’t even watch the countdown. I can only hope things will change this year. I say that every new year but things never change for the better.

Oh well.

A Very Shit Christmas

December 25, 2014 at 8:43 AM

Merry Christmas 2014

Well, it’s Christmas day so Merry Christmas to those celebrating it.

This year has got to be the shittiest Christmas ever for me. Not only I have nobody to celebrate it with, didn’t get any presents, not even from myself like I usually would, but this week has been the most devastating Christmas week ever.

On Monday, which is 3 days ago, I lost my beloved Puteh. He was sick with fever since last week and I didn’t take him to the vet because I’m so stupid. I thought it was just a normal fever and that he was getting better. He got out of bed and all. Turned out his condition had worsened. Monday was supposed to be a good day because I won a free pizza from Vivo Pizza and was supposed to go to AEON Station 18 to enjoy it but when I woke up, Puteh started choking and I tried to rush him to the vet but he just… didn’t make it.

I don’t deserve to live. Please kill me and end my misery. The pain is too much for me. I miss him too much and I feel so guilty. God I’m such a useless human being.

The next day, my friend told me her rabbit died, and yesterday her kitten died. See how much devastation I have this week for me? But 2 days ago, my outdoor cat had 2 new babies, hopefully she can take care of them.

I was told I should blog more with less depressing stuff… well my life has been depressing and I wish I could write something happy and cheerful like I used to but there’s none. Nothing. All I’ve been doing is just sit at home, write stuff, watch stuff, eat, sleep. That’s all.

Usually I’d be spending my Christmas eve with movie marathon while munching some gingerbread cookies but this year I didn’t. I’ve already planned to watch holiday movies on Netflix but I’m too depressed to do so. I did put on HyppTV’s Comedy Central and they had ‘Chrismassy’  Saturday Night Life marathon so I guess that’s enough.

I’m just gonna watch a bit of Youtube then sleep.
My year is not ending good.

Cherry on a Shit Sundae

October 29, 2014 at 1:25 AM

I haven’t been blogging for quite a while. I don’t know why. Not that I’ve lost my interest in blogging or anything, just that I don’t feel like doing so – due to depression and lack of time. I don’t have any awesome news to write about anyway. This past few weeks has been completely shit. I remember back in June where I had the tonsil infection, it was HELL.

For 3 weeks I was bedridden, with fevers come and go and the kind that really make your body shiver like you’re in iceland. Then major cough, losing voice and the back of my throat was all white so it was hell trying to cough it all out. My God I thought I was dying. And I thought when that was over, it would be over.. but no.

About 1+ weeks ago, I’ve been coughing so bad I thought I would cough my lungs out. My inside hurts, my chest hurts… no fever, just coughing. But after that, my throat feels weird until now. Feels like there’s something swollen in my gland. Then I had to deal with one kitten dead about a month ago or so, then a short while ago 3 of my kittens fell down the stairs and one right in front of my eyes. It was horrible.

And right now, 2 of them died 2 days ago, not directly due to that fall though. One is malnutrition and the other one…I don’t know. I just found him/her dead in my room. I’ve been so devastated and so depressed. That’s not all.

On Sunday, a tree from my neighbor’s house fell most probably due to lightning strike and dragged my electricity cable down with it. So my house was in pitch black for about 2-3 hours or so. Last week, it has been raining so heavily that my neighborhood flooded, 2 or 3 times.

My iMac has been giving problems for the past month. I think I’ve reformat and reinstalled the operating system more than 20 times. I’ve wasted so much time! So now I have to depend on my laptop. Because my laptop was on Windows 7, it was lagging so bad that I was getting so annoyed. I decided to try reformat and install Windows 8.1 for the first time even though I’ve been against Windows 8.

It was a good decision!

Windows 8.1

I used to hate Windows 8 so much but I LOVE the updated 8.1. But the best thing is that, now my laptop is no longer laggy like before. I don’t know how long that will last but at the moment, that’s all that matters. I can blog and do work again on my laptop. That’s the only positive thing that has happened to me so far.

That’s all I wanna update. I’ll write more when I have time or when I feel like it. I have so many things I need to do..but so little time. Halloween is coming up!

 

Learn Something in a Year

October 22, 2014 at 2:05 PM

Sorry for not updating! I’ll write why in the next post.

I saw this video of a girl who learned how to dance in a year, which apparently went viral. I personally expected more of it, and don’t really like the type of dance she’s doing (which is robot moves, so 80s) but if she really did learn it in a year, then that’s a great achievement.

I wonder if you can learn and master at playing an instrument within a year. I’ve always wanted to learn how to play guitar since forever, but I never had the chance to do it. I wonder if i do that, learn to play guitar in a year and then do a time lapse video, my video will go viral? Haha. Not that I have much time to do it.. or the resources/financial. Maybe one day.

If you’re thinking the same, for starter, you can get the instruments at musician friends.

I wish I could play like this –

OMG major envy!

And I love the song, but all I could do is play that in guitar flash game on facebook.
