Tesco Ipoh Is Slowly Turning Shit

January 28, 2011 at 2:01 AM

My January was off with a good start until this week. Oh man, my mom just pisses me off so badly that I feel I want to hang myself. It’s just so frustrating to talk to someone whose mindset is so conservative and stuck in the 50s and 60s. Someone who refused to get with the time. It’s just so damn frustrating when they don’t understand the way of life nowadays and insist that you follow their ways – back in the 60s. Fuck that shit.

2 days ago I was at Tesco, and I was buying quite a lot of groceries… I’m so disappointed with Tesco at the moment. It’s the only place to shop here in Ipoh for food, and guess what? I went to the ice cream section and it was EMPTY. That’s right EMPTY. There was only like 3 kinds of shitty ice cream. they’re prolly moving it somewhere, or something, because they just recently shifted things around and it’s so confusing, but at least have the decency to put a friggin NOTICE instead of letting me be excited, buying the whipped cream and chocolate syrup to eat with it only to find out their ice cream section is FRIGGIN EMPTY. Also almost all the time, when their stock is finished, it takes them a LONG time to restock. So good luck in finding what you want there. I’ve been wanting paprika (the cheap one from the packet) and it took them a month or so to restock.

Then comes the payment time. OH MY GOD. People were queuing up and it wasn’t even the weekend! It was on a Tuesday. I know Chinese New Year is coming up, but at least be considerate and open up MORE CASHIER COUNTERS. Jeebus cripes. Imagine this, there were …let’s say…if there was 15 counters, only 5 or so were opened minus the fast lane. There were long lines of queue and each one of them had a trolley FULL of STUFF. It’s even worst that the cashier is slow as fuck. Come on, they’re using those barcode scanner thing and not manually keying the price so it should be fast right? Well..I had 3 person before me, and it took almost an hour for my turn.. and when it was my turn she was so slow that I had to put all my stuff in the bags myself or else it would take like 20 minutes. And I didn’t even have that much of stuff to begin with. And this happens everytime I went there since I got back – which is 6 months ago. And my mom is old with a bad knees, standing for so long hurts her knees and there’s no fast lane for senior citizen?!

Tesco, pull yourself together and get your shit together. If only Giant hypermarket isn’t so far away in Tambun, it would be my new place to shop at.

What Have I Done?

January 20, 2011 at 6:43 AM

As I’ve mentioned, that last Saturday was my big day – my convocation. But I’m not talking about that yet in this post instead I’m gonna talk about something else that happened completely unexpected.

A year ago, out of the blue, my ex decided to just ‘disappear’ and blocked me from facebook and everything. I didn’t know about it until my friend asked me if I still have him in my list… because he was still in her friends list. That’s when I found out that he actually blocked me. The level of hurt when I found that out was unbearable. To top it all off, couple of weeks later, that’s when Nikko died. Since we (my ex and I) became friends, we are always connected in one way or another. It was painful that once I got rid of him in my life, he took Nikko away with him as he was the one who bought Nikko for me. After all the painful events and series of depression, I finally decided to move on and forget about him.

Until last week.

It was last Friday, and I was in KL. Out of the blue an MSN window popped up and it was his twin sister (who is an Australian). I have not talked to her for YEARS and she was NEVER online so to see her suddenly messaging made my heart drop. I knew what was coming but I just kept playing along. It was really great talking to her again, and she’s like a sister to me. She told me she could get online because there was a flood in Australia that gives her free time. Then the dreaded question came up – she asked me what happened between me and him. She knew we’re no longer together, but she didn’t expect we’re no longer friends.

So she tried to play some sort like a doctor and tried to patch our broken friendship up. It was really awkward, and I wasn’t ready and everything was happening too fast. And on Saturday, because I was so hyper from the graduation, we decided to talk and before I knew it, we’re friends again? Really, it happened way too fast. But I just told myself, hey, I want my 2011 to be drama free as long as possible. I had a depressing start of the year when my kitten went missing, but the graduation etc was the first good thing that happened… and I had this good feeling that I don’t wanna let go. So I decided to go with the flow. I was happy to get out of the dark place of not knowing what happened with me and him.

The drama-free part was only for a very short while. I knew it was too good to be true. You see, he came to my place on the day I came back from KL. I arrived at about 7-ish pm after leaving KL at about 2 or 3 pm. I was dead tired from the convocation and driving. I told him to come the next day but he refused. He said he’d come before 10 pm. I waited for him.. know what time he showed up? At almost 12 am. I wanted to rest so badly but oh well, thought it was only for one time so I said what the heck.

The next day he invited me out for *lunch*.. I was soooo tired and didn’t wanna go but he insisted. Good thing I already ate lunch because he ended up calling at 3 pm instead. We hung out at Starbucks, until almost 6 pm before leaving. He wanted to come over to watch ‘Scott Pilgrim vs the world’. Suddenly he changed his mind and wanted to go out early to get the DVD and dinner, do at 7 pm he picked up again. He kept changing his mind about what to eat for dinner -__- That’s nothing new. We went to buy the DVD then came back to watch it. This was the time when I started to have the flu. The movie was awesome, but after it ends, that’s when the drama starts. Oh boy.

It was about him and his current gf… and he was all emo.. urgh I was so happy to BE happy then suddenly WHAM depression surrounds me again. He insisted on having breakfast together the next day but I wasn’t feeling well… serves me right because I didn’t rest enough and it took a toll on me…. and for 2 days I was feeling extremely crappy, and sick, and not even once had he ask me how was I feeling or wished me to get better. Instead, he was extremely bitchy and pissy and angsty about his current problem with his gf and not even caring that I was feeling like I was dying. He still asked me out so that he could rant about his problem when I was feeling so shitty with the flu and fever.

I don’t know. I thought it would be happy and fun again to patch things up (also for the sake of his twin sis) since I have no friends in Ipoh except for Sharina but is this what I’m getting? I don’t need stress in my life. I’m the kind of person who would be there for someone who needs my help, an ear to listen and shoulder to cry on, but when I’m terribly sick? Instead of asking me to rest and get better, he asked me to go out so that he could rant and rant and rant.

Come onnnnn…..

Still, as long as the drama does not involve me, I’m fine with it. Please no more drama this year. This should be my awesome year. Well I’m feeling a lot better today except for the minor coughing so I need to get back to work already. No more slacking around and wasting time. I also need to concentrate back on losing weight huhu. I got ‘Just Dance 2‘ for the Wii so need to do a lot of dancing now..

New Zodiac Sign: Are You An Ophiuchus?

January 14, 2011 at 11:06 AM

WHAAAAAAAT??

I just read the most shocking thing today. The zodiac sign dates have changed! Here’s the story:

Oh, no he did not!Respected astronomer Parke Kunkle is telling NBC news that a change in the Earth’s alignment is now causing your astrological sign to change.

Apparently, Not only are there new zodiac sign dates released but some astronomers are coming forth with a thirteenth sign called Ophiuchus, which will have an effect on your sign if you’re a Scorpio or a Sagittarius.

The legitimacy of the new sign is still up in the air but is being printed in lists (see below). Not sure what you’re supposed to do if your birthday falls in these dates but good luck trying to pronounce your new sign!

Not sure about you, but my birthday falls on August 5, so this change affects me in a big way. According to this news, I am no longer a leo but now, I’m a cancer :( .

For 26 years I’ve been a Leo (luckily I don’t live my life by my astrological sign but I did always love being a Leo) and now all of a sudden I’m something/someone completely different? I don’t think so. I will ALWAYS be a Leo.

Here is the complete list of new zodiac sign dates (does anyone else find it weird that each sign overlaps with the next by one day. For instance, if your birthdya is on Feb 16, you’re both Capricorn and Aquarius):

What do you think of the change?

Capricorn: Jan. 20 – Feb. 16
Aquarius: Feb. 16 – March 11
Pisces: March 11- April 18
Aries: April 18- May 13
Taurus: May 13- June 21
Gemini: June 21- July 20
Cancer: July 20- Aug. 10
Leo: Aug. 10- Sept. 16
Virgo: Sept. 16- Oct. 30
Libra: Oct. 30- Nov. 23
Scorpio: Nov. 23- Nov. 29
Ophiuchus: Nov. 29- Dec. 17
Sagittarius: Dec. 17- Jan. 20

So…. I am no longer a Pisces now, but an Aquarius?!

No way!

I love being a Pisces and will always be a Pisces. But the thing is, wow, this astrological sign change is gonna cause a huge mess! Not only it’s confusing, but there’s an overlap. So that means if you were born on the ‘overlap’ days you have 2 signs! And wtf how do you even pronounce ‘Ophiucus‘? It’s gonna be so weird to have a new zodiac sign now.

I pity all of you who are now an ‘Opiuchus‘ ..

Flood, Oh Flood

January 4, 2011 at 12:15 AM

Yesterday my house was flooded. It was the first time I saw the water rising inside the house. Usually it’d be just outside the gate.

I was worried it would go into my living room. I stood at the door, with my kitties (and outside kitties that’s stuck on the car and in my house) watching for the water level, afraid it would go inside the house and ruins the electrical stuff.

But little did I know.. the water went inside the kitchen, into the dry kitchen and was near my books in plastic bags on the floor.

Today I found out my expensive Japanese books, CDs and DVDs are all wet. I’m very pissed and upset. 🙁

I’d post more pictures but I don’t have photoshop yet in this computer to edit. I’m not familiar yet with other software.

Back From The Dead Part 1

December 16, 2010 at 4:43 AM

My laptop is back from the dead. Hence why I haven’t been blogging.

I bought my Acer 9520G laptop in December 2007 around this time. So my laptop is 3 years old now. After buying the laptop I read that Acer laptop is not so good, and it’s quite problematic. I got worried. I read people’s problems with this and that and I was like —fuck. But so far I’m glad to say that for 3 years I never had major problems except broken DVD drive once due to pirated disc and dead adapter which is cheap and replaceable until last week………….

…there was no error. There was no problem. No indication. I was downloading some wii games and it was almost done, but my connection was slow so I wanted to reboot and so I did. Guess what? As it was loading up windows, it booted to a fucking BLUE SCREEN OF DEATH (BSOD)!!!!

OMG.

My heart nearly stopped.

BSOD can never be good.

Sure this past few months I’ve had occasional BSOD but after it reboots everything works fine again but this time it was FATAL. It gave the ‘unmountable_boot_volume‘ error and would not load to windows no matter what. Even booting up using CD also was an epic fail. I googled from my phone and read that some people could just fix it using win7 installation disc but mine didn’t work. After failing to troubleshoot I decided to send it to the technician and well… I’ve already guessed that it’s a fatal error and would need to be reformatted. I’ve learned from many heartbreaks from past mistakes of not backing up and saving everything to C drive. I did a backup last July or August but I had a few latest webcam pictures I took recently that has sentimental values that I would regret of losing! So I was hoping that I didn’t need to reformat and the disc is not completely dead because then I’d lose 100++ GB of stuff.. that would be worst! I would DIE.

Well unfortunately only way is to reformat, tech guy said.

Will continue this story later today. I need to get some sleep now so I can get up in a few hours to go shopping (JCard day!) I’ve been up all night looking at cars that I wish I can afford to own.. My dream car peugeot 308 Turbo so far is the ‘value for money’ type of car. It has good specs, looks super cute and lavish, a true French beauty and I’m absolutely in love with it. I want a new car damnit.
