27 August 2013, 11pm. A snake appeared on the front door. I was curled up under my blanket in the living room, suffering from extreme stomach ache while holding back the urge to throw up. Then my mum shriek from behind saying there's a snake on the front door. The snake was moving towards the opened windows. I dashed out of my cocoon and grabbed the insecticide and sprayed at the windows, at the same time closing them. The snake then slithered back towards the front door. I sprayed through the door gap to prevent the snake from getting in. Mum was frantically searching for the fire brigade number. She managed to get through. The snake slithered downwards towards the ground. It was so fast. Panicked, my mum called our neighbours, asking for help, as we were all locked in the house. Even the gates were locked. She needed someone to help us unlock the gates to let the firemen in. So my neighbours suggested we go upstairs and throw the house keys down to them. Some time later, the firemen arrived. But the snake was no where to be found. They then asked us to hand them the car keys as they suspect the snake has slithered under or into the car. We handed them the car keys as well as two ( last two) cans of insecticide. The opened the car bonnet but the snake wasn't there. The then use flashlights to search under the car. They kept spraying insecticide at the car to lure the snake out. One of our neighbours also came in to help locate the snake. It was playing hide and seek with them. They even started the engine but it was still evasive. We heard them say they see it under the car but it was moving very fast. After some commotion, the managed to capture the snake. The fireman said it's a baby python and asked for a plastic bag to place the snake into. We handed them a plastic bag and the bundled the snake up. Then they left. Fortunately, they still turn up at such ungodly hour. Thank god.

Suspect Food Poisoning

I am currently having the worse stomach ache. I have been to the washroom thrice in an hour. And I feel like throwing up. Worse time to have food poisoning.

What Men Want

Came across this photo which describes the types of men and the women that they desire. In today's society, this no longer holds. All men wants the first type (cigarettes).

Things That Grind People's Gears

Every living being can relate to this. Senseless commentary from people. When you're in your teens, you're discouraged from being in relationships. Especially more so if you're Chinese. As you approach 20s, everyone will start asking whether or not you're in a relationship. When you're approaching your mid 20s, people will ask when you're getting married. After you get married, people will start asking when you'll have kids. After having a baby, people will ask when will you be having subsequent ones. It really makes you want to tell them off. Mind your own business. Would you like it if you were asked when's your turn when meet at funerals? When it happens, it happens. Life is not scripted. It does not follow a curriculum syllabus. It does not state that you have to have a partner when you're 18, be married at 25, have a baby at 26. Each person's life is different. If you have nothing intelligent to say to break the ice or just have to say something that betrays your common sense just to satisfy your nosy behaviour, then it's best to just remain quiet. Someone posted a "comic" on this as well. Guess there are abundant of people without common sense around.

Songs With A Message

Started listening to Adele thanks to Triumph In The Skies 2.

Chasing Pavements - Adele

It is as though it is telling me something.

Make You Feel My Love - Adele

Don't get how this is a romantic song. It sounds really sad to me. Maybe romantic isn't the right word to use here. Love song? Nope. Not very lovey either. Sad song to cry to, more like it.

Chinese Valentine

13 August 2013 happens to be Chinese Valentine's day. According to the Chinese folklore, this day is the only day two lovers Ngau Long and Chik Lui get to meet each other after being separated for the entire year. It's actually quite sad that two people who are deeply in love have to be separated for such a long period and all they have is one day to be with their loved one. At least Chinese folklore is quite realistic. You might not be able to be with the one dear to you at all times. True love must be based on loyalty and perseverance. The Chinese have been rocking long distance relationship since ancient times. Anyway, to those who observe the Chinese Valentine's Day, happy valentine's day.

Tu es tres jolie

While chatting with a friend, I lamented that my new mouse was malfunction. The friend responded by saying "Mouse also got problem. Definitely face problem".  So I asked "What's wrong with my face?" The reply was "Your face is very pretty, k".

                It should be beautiful. Pretty means can do only. But, failed to fish beautiful for compliment. Sigh. Point to note, friend insisted that there's no higher ranking than pretty. Pfft. Friend just have to win the squabble.


A couple of weeks ago, ( two weeks I think), I bought a mouse. I didn't buy a branded one. Previously I bought a few non branded mice and they work just fine. So i thought the same would apply to this one. Needed to change the old one as I dropped it several times unintentionally, leading to the mouse malfunctioning(sometimes). So the mouse needed a replacement. Went to a bookstore and randomly bought a mouse. Initially it worked fine. But the past few days, it has been a real pain. It would suddenly stop functioning and I had to use the touch pad on the laptop to move the cursor. It just got worse today. I had to keep unplugging the dead rat from the USB slot. It is worse than the predecessor. It's barely a month old. Doubt I can get a replacement from the shop. I treated this mouse with care. Guess it's down to using the old one or getting another mouse. If you are thinking of getting a mouse anytime soon, don't buy CLIPtec.

Hey I Just Met You

I posted a combo pic with Carly Rae Jepson saying "Hey I just met you, and this is crazy, but here's my number..." And and old man replying "Who is this ? You have the wrong number". Then a guy messaged me saying "Hey I just met you, and this is crazy, here's my number xxxxxxxxxx". I don't know how to react to that.

Flat Tire

Saw a funny photo with an apt caption. The caption is: Flat tire in Alaska for a photo with a husky lying on its back while the rest were looking at it.

Friday, August 02, 2013


I was down with cold. What  started as sneezing in the morning, ended becoming sneezing and coughing in the evening, as a result of mucus getting to the throat. After a long bout of sneezing continuously, I took a cold medicine to stop it. It didn't work immediately though. Taking cold medicine always has side effects for me. Which is, I always end up with breathing difficulty after taking cold medicine. Because I couldn't lie flat, I propped my pillows up to form a hill so that it will be easier for me to breathe. Didn't immediately drift into sleep as the drowsiness has yet to kick in. Therefore, I was tossing and turning to find a suitable position to rest. After a while, which is more like a few hundred rounds of tossing and turning, i finally fell asleep. I was drifting in and out of sleep. But was still having difficulty breathing. I can never sleep comfortably when I'm down with cold. Throughout the night I was moving about trying to get the ultimate sleeping position. Sometime later, while I was tossing and turning, I propped up then lie back onto the pillow. Just then,instead of landing on the pillow, my head hit the side table really hard. There was a cash register sound and my head hurts so badly. Subconsciously I was wondering whether it bleed as I heard "ka Ching" when my head landed on the side table. I tried to rub on the spot to relief the pain but my hands were weak as a result of taking the cold medicine. When I woke up a little while ago, I touched my head and that sore area really hurts. Sigh. That is how I got a "bungalow" on the left side of my head. (*bungalow- a term the Chinese use to describe a bump on the head as a result of being hit).

Down With Cold

I am officially down with cold. Started sneezing last night after whiffing petrol the whole night (refer previous entry). I have not stop sneezing since then. Sigh. The tip of my nose is currently red. (Rudolph the red nose reindeer *playing in background). A couple of minutes ago, prior to writing this entry, I was on continuous sneezing mode. Started to cough after that. It's going to be a long night.


Don't you just loathe the smell of petrol? Each time I go to the petrol station, I'd wish that the tank would fill up faster so that I can breathe without inhaling that petrol smell. Last night, the house was suddenly filled with the smell of petrol. Initially I thought it was just exhaust pipe smoke from passing vehicles. But that smell persisted long after the vehicles have left. Then I got a little worried. Thinking that the car might be leaking, I went to check. But there was nothing on the floor. Mum then asked our neighbour whether they smell it. Hey, we need to find the source, whether it's coming from our house. We don't want to end up charred as a result of fire or something. Our neighbour then told us that it's the other neighbour's car that is leaking. That family didn't even bother to wash away the leaked petrol. Leaving it on the ground, for the wind to blow the smell around. For the entire night, we (us and our immediate neighbour) had to breathe in petrol. And the wind was not much of a help. Our entire house, from the front to the back smelled like it has been doused with petrol. It was so unbearable. We can't even sleep in our bedrooms. We could have ended up dead from inhaling petrol the whole night. And that leaky car neighbour just shut their door without a care in the world. As though the leak is none of their business. They could have at least leave the tap on to wash away the leaked petrol. So that the entire row of houses won't be burnt down in case someone decides to light a match or some errant firecracker lands on the spot. Such selfish and inconsiderate people. Seriously, what has the society become?
