dissonance in my head.


So today I had to follow grandma to the hospital again, this time I had to push her around in a wheelchair. It was one of the worst experiences I’ve ever had. I hate hospitals. I hate sick people in general. I’d seriously rather be a math teacher than a doctor/nurse. Then again I suck at math so that’s unlikely to happen. Then again I also know teachers who suck at teaching so…

I wouldn’t mind being an undertaker though. I don’t see why it’s taboo or anything. Someone has to do it, I mean wouldn’t you want someone to make you look nice for your err…final journey? It’s much better than being a doctor. Because to me being a doctor means seeing sick people almost every day and sometimes you know there’s nothing you can actually do to help them and I can’t live with guilt.

Mum found a white kitten behind a metal cabinet at the mechanic’s 2 days ago! It’s small and rather adorable. Eyes opened, but still crawling. Ish. No not really it’s quite capable of pushing itself around  and climbing up on people and nomming on their hair. Have to feed it formula from a syringe (bottle’s too big.). It also loves mum’s hot pillow thing a lot. Awwwh.

Spent about 3 1/2 hours at the hospital, basically carting grandmother dear from one waiting room to another, then we found out her usual doctor’s on vacation. Or in the middle of an  operation. Something with “tion” at the end. So we had to see some other doctor and it was so effing crowded. I never knew so many people in a room could have broken limbs. It  was actually quite terrifying, imagine zombiefied patients….

And I almost fell asleep a few times. Then we had lunch at e-Gate, no, we did not go “ration shopping” (as my grandma  calls it) at Tesco.

Went to this restaurant with quite alright food, baked cheese rice was one of the best I’ve ever had.

Oh yes. Now we shall get to that part.

I have the mentality of a 5 year old. So I was flipping through the menu when I saw this very sassy blue drink. It looked very quaint and pretty. And for some strange reason it was considerably cheaper than the milkshakes. And did I mention it looked very sparkly? I decided to order that.

Food arrived, drinks arrived, and the sassy blue thing. It was transparent on top and had blue stuff and a lemon slice at the bottom, so I assumed it was Sprite. Very funny tasting Sprite. But a lovely blue color. Mum had some and said it “tastes about right”. That was pretty odd but I didn’t realize it at the time~ Till I was halfway through it when I asked if there was any alcohol in it. To which my mother responded, “OF COURSE DUMMY YOU ORDERED A COCKTAIL.” or something among those lines. Heh.

Might I remind you that I went through half the glass without questioning it before realizing it tasted very unlike Sprite, though it was fizzy and sparkly.  Idk I think I have very pathetic taste buds. But I was still sober after that, yay. And I could walk in a straight line. About as straight as I usually walk. And I usually walk like a drunk pirate. Yeah.

This is just a very short meaningless post to update my blog. I’ll blog more tomorrow after I sleep.

Something about Grimm…

Toodle-oo~

NEVER TRUST COLORFUL SPARKLY THINGS.

Erg Terts.


And I bid you all good morning. :3

I made egg tarts yesterday night  last friday at 4am! They were surprisingly easy, heh. It all started a few weeks ago when I spontaneously felt like eating them and unfortunately it was like 2am then so I couldn’t possibly go out and get them and being the genius I am I decided to try making them. So I googled and youtubed and went through countless deceiving tutorials and websites and I finally found one that seemed legit simple enough.

Then I forgot all about it till a few days ago. So I decided to try it out anyway~

I think I did pretty well, considering the fact that it’s the first time I’ve ever baked tarts.

[I was supposed to make my mom a lemon meringue pie last year for her birthday but I was going for a camp and I started pretty late at night so in the end I didn’t bake it but I got as far as the making the pastry before falling asleep. Trying it again soon because I’ve already bought the tart tin and all.]

Here’s a pic to prove it happened.. PROOF THAT I CAN BAKE.

Tried making a second batch yesterday, was impatient and they didn’t turn out so great.

My mother is also rather obsessed with meat pies. Liver pies. Eugh.

Paris, the emo city.


 It was raining in Paris. The city was looking tired and disappointed, the Eiffel Tower fighting against a mass of heavy cloud. There was nobody sitting at the tables spread outside the cafes and for once the little kiosks selling paintings and postcards were being ignored by the tourists hurrying back to their hotels. It was five o’clock in the afternoon and the evening was drawing in. The shops and offices were emptying, but the city didn’t care. It just wanted to be left alone.

I actually laughed out loud for some reason. Ahhh Anthony Hororwitz.

So last sunday mom dropped me at Penang Times Square for the BookExcess roadshow/book fair thing, spent about 4 hours there? During that time I went through every interesting-looking book (yes, judging stuff by covers here) and read half of Girl, 15: Flirting for England and some very creepy book about kidnapping that had so many copies strewn all over the place. Also read this rather lolarious thaang called Big woo: My not-so-secret teenage blog. Was very tempted to get that one for Karen. But I DIDN’T. Because I’m mean.

I DID get 4 Alex Rider books though (four for me, you go me! And none for Krakenese Giraffe, bye.), for 8 bucks each. So freaking worth it I tell you. I also finally got a Garth Nix book, finally, after seeing Keys to the Kingdom everywhere, only I got one of his first books, Sabriel. Published in 1995. Walao eh. 14.90. Hmph still quite pricey.

I’ve finished reading all of them, and tried my best to rearrange my bookshelf. Also planning to take apart my king-sized bed and just sleep on the floor, so I have more space. And I’d like to get a new computer desk. And put up my curtains. Basically make my room nice.

And I really want to try WordPress’s daily post thing because it looks fun, and I can think of at least a dozen things to blog about. So I should probably start that soon…

I figured out how to flip/mirror pictures on Photoscape so I’m pretty proud of myself.

So now I shall add Garth Nix’s series’ to my list of books I want to read. Only I’d probably have trouble finding the second Old Kingdom book, Lirael. And the rest. Haven’t seen his books around much, only knew about them from the Scholastic catalogue.

And I saw John Green’s The Fault in our Stars at Popular a few weeks ago when I was with Jet, didn’t get it because I was broke then. Still am now. Note to self: If it’s on Popular’s featured stand, then it’s obviously still overpriced. I really want to read that though since everyone’s going on about how great it is.

I also finished a dozen pandan mantou in a day. And a 9s pack of potato buns. On different days lah~

I desperately want to make egg tarts soon because I found a tutorial that looked really easy and omg I just want to try.

There really isn’t much to blog about here, I’ll just go update my private blog about my love life for bread.  ^^

So here’s a drawing and a gif to take up space:

Made this a few weeks back.

Close enough.

Well that’s all for tonight.
