A little pick-me-up.

So my single day off was thoroughly spent by doing some random random things.
That morning I headed out to KLCC to meet up with my insurance agent. I chose KLCC, naturally. Thinking that I could spend any free time catching pokémon. I know -- obsessed!

Anyway, the insurance agent is a friend's of Dida so what should've taken less than an hour went on for around three hours! Chatted randomly. The insurance part was probably just half an hour.
I had not planned for it to take that long since I had some "errands" to run, stuff to buy, while trying to get home before Encem does.

Running from one end of KLCC to the other to get shit done didn't help with my time management though. Kinda sucky that I completely forgot to renew my debit cards too. And I was in the bank too! Just somehow I didn't remember that we're supposed to get our debit cards renewed for the Pin & Pay system that's starting next year.

So finally sometime around five I get to walk around the park to see if there's any new pokémon I could catch when Encem called to ask if I wanted to come with him to Kuantan. My mother in law just went through an operation to her back (not exactly slip disc) so he thought of paying her a visit. May I also add that we hadn't been back to Kuantan since the wedding!
Knowing that I'll be on standby the next day, he even suggested that I took emergency leave. (Sorta love him more for that, hahaha!)

I got home around the time Encem did, we had dinner then decided that I should try for a medical leave before having to resort to an EL.
Now on to the coolest doctor I've ever encountered!

Basically he just asked what was wrong with me, and I honestly replied that I'm not physically ill, just extremely tired. (Honesty is the best policy, no?)
We proceeded to chatting about my work, the company.. I told him about my hours this month. Discussed about coming home late and no longer provided with transportation..

So yeah, I got my second MC of the year from a very chill doctor!
He also prescribed me with multi-vitamins. heh

That was Monday.
We had a good, fatty, almost-two days in Kuantan and we are now on our way back.
Mama J looked good. We had our food cravings satisfied. I mean, now that I think about it, we didn't go looking for kepok lekor or ais batu jagung at all while we're there but honestly they didn't cross my mind at all until just now!
Perhaps another Kuantan trip is in order.. hehe

Lelaki gatal.

I just got home a couple of hours ago and despite having a long list of things I should must do, here I am about to share with you a story about a perverted member of the opposite sex.

A passenger, seated at 2A, let's call him Mr. Idiot; was on my flight to BKI two days ago. He was on the flight with passenger at 2C, whom I assumed he worked for. 2C was a Dato/Dato'/Datuk whom must've been somebody because passenger at 4C worked for them too.

Some time during the flight, Mr. Idiot asked for a pen so I handed him one from my stash of hotel pens. During the flight he didn't say much, didn't ask much, but as we were approaching into KKIA he returned my pen purposefully with a piece of tissue paper stuck to it.
I came back into the galley and had a look -- he'd written his phone number with a short message to call him.

As I was collecting loose items around the cabin during descent, he signed that he'd written his phone number on the piece of tissue he'd given me.
I politely smiled and showed him the ring on my ring finger..

So we landed, all the passengers disembarked, the crew carried out the ground duties and headed out ourselves.
Got into the van that brought us to our hotel and lo and behold! Mr. Idiot was in the lobby!
I suppose I was a little stupid myself, after debriefing I stepped outside to satisfy my craving for a smoke. Not surprisingly, Mr. Idiot joined me and made small talks, asked if I'd like to go out for drinks. Asked for my room number which I honestly replied that I hadn't checked.

He waited for me to get into the elevator with him. He'd pushed the button for his floor and only then I checked my room key.
Stupid on my part again.. should've just let him get in the elevator on his own.
He stayed in the box and said he'll accompany me to my room. Even held my luggage hostage by saying that he'll carry it for me.

I just walked on with him on my tail. Quickly got into my room and about to close the door on his face when he said; "kiss sikit!"
My reply?
"Eeeee.. goodnight!" and shut the door.

So my night pretty much ended there. Stayed up 'til quite late because I had access to a Pokéstop from my bed and two people fixed a Lure Module back to back.
I fell asleep around 4AM, completely zonked until wake up call -- or so I thought.

It was Mr. Idiot asking if I was still asleep then asked if I wanted to get drinks. Even said that he liked looking at me.
Told him I was not interested and hung up.
Checked the time at it was 7:44 AM.

What the hell is wrong with people, seriously??
A woman has already refused to give her phone number, clearly said that she is married, and STILL some guy goes ahead to try and get what.. lucky??
The nerve!!
What the hell is wrong with Idiot's brains, seriously!?
Might I add, that he's not even good looking!
As if his looks or moves could swoon any woman who laid eyes on him.

I should probably mention that Idiot was Muslim. Like.. WTF, man!
Have you no sense of respect for boundaries??

Anyway, I am sharing this here because I haven't told Encem about this story yet. Not sure how he'll take it. He's not even the jealous type; a man who is very secure with himself. A man with a very healthy self-esteem, but a man nonetheless.
He won't enjoy this story, yet I won't know exactly what will run through his head.
He's in Osaka and I really don't feel like telling him through texts.
He'll probably think I was a complete moron for letting Idiot come to my door.

I was a moron.
Things could've gone terrible.
But it didn't and I am glad.
Although I had been imagining kicking his nuts if he tried anything funny. He wasn't that big, I really do think that I could take him. hahahha!

That's all for story-time.
I still have a bunch of things to do before I get some sleep.
And I need to be up and ready in a few hours!
Feels like it's always the one day off when I try to do the most things.

Have a good week, everybody!

Work again..

Where did all the hours in the day gone to?
I feel like I keep losing time and trying so hard to get them back.
I need more time!

I'll be heading to BKI in a few hours and here I am just wasting time doing whatever the hell that I am doing.
Three days gone by just like that.
I spent Tuesday totally lazing around the house. Doing absolutely nothing, not even bothered to shower. (Yeah yeah, I'm disgusting. Whatever.) Except that I got some "admin" stuff done. Paid bills, made the calls that I needed to make, paid off my PTPTN -- which made me want to jump around the house like an idiot.
Wednesday was spent doing laundry and waiting for Encem to come home from work. He got home around 4PM and we headed into the city centre because he wanted to "look at" some guitars.

Oh, have I ever told you that he plays the guitar?
Funny that growing up, I've always wanted a boyfriend who could play.
Anyway, we spent a couple of hours looking at guitars, which I didn't mind. I got to catch pokémons in between so no complains there.
We did come home with a Fender Stratocaster in sonic blue that day.. So much for "looking at" things! hahahaha

Thursday, Bestie got us breakfast and we all discussed how to spend our day off.
Decided on a movie so we headed to Midvalley for lunch before watching Nerve -- which was good, really. Loved the concept of the "game" and an overall good film. I only knew the film from Casey Neistat, so I'm not sure how well it compares to the novel.

Then we went to karaoke.. until our throats were sore.. at 1AM.

Now I'm just sitting here. Waiting out until I absolutely need to do something useful. Like shower and pack for my three days trip. My roster is entirely made up of 738 flight so I'm totally relaxed in the flight front. It's the hours that is getting me stressed.
It's the hours that is getting me less and less excited about work. I need a holiday pretty bad but I've run out of leave. Took some off for two weddings in the coming months and a couple for my birthday -- because who the hell wants to work on their birthday?

I'm considering taking a "medical leave" for my airport standby next week. Doesn't seem like I am getting sick anytime soon, but man I hate airport standby! Although to be honest, I hate seeing the doctor as much as I hate being on standby. Mostly because they always make me feel like I'm faking being sick even when I feel like dying.
Well, the last time I took a medical leave was January 25th.. if that makes any difference at all.
We'll see how this will play out.

Think I'm going to put this away and have a lie down before deciding what to bring for my trip. I'll only touchdown late in the evening so most probably I'll just pack my jammies.
SO not looking forward to work!!!!!!!!

Home alone.

Finally, THREE days off!
Well, technically it's just two but it's 2 AM and I just got home from my crazy Bangkok nightstop so I have the entire day free to do what ever I want. Btw, I said it's "crazy" because we did KUL/HKT/KUL/BKK on the first day then BKK/KUL/BKK/KUL the next. If that isn't crazy, I don't know what is.
Oh! My hours just went up to 103, by the way.

I'm procrastinating from taking a shower and though I'm not a fan of showers in the middle of the night, I feel that I really should after the long day that I had. My hair is stiff from the hair spray and my legs itches like hell because they are SO dry. I haven't even washed the make up off my face.
Anyone has any recommendations for a good body moisturiser? I feel like everything I've tried just fails on me these days.
I blame the long hours.

I got home all by myself tonight. For the first time, at this hour. Usually Encem would be around or I would call on my parents (teehee!) or Bestie for help. But it's a weekday and my parents are in Bangi looking after my nieces and nephew while both Encem and Bestie are at work.
I was quite nervous getting on the cab to be honest. There's been some horror stories going around lately.

I was SO looking forward to this part of my roster since the beginning of this month, but sadly all I have to look forward to is two serious phone calls and a mound of laundry to do!
I wish I had a more exciting life to type about but all I have in mind lately is just home related stuff.

We've moved to this new place (oh right, I didn't tell you about that!.. did I?) in May and we still have a bunch of things still unpacked.
I might do a bit of clearing out of my clothes. I gave myself six months to determine what I should keep and what I should throw out but I don't think I need that long. I have a full drawer of clothes that I have not opened since we moved. That is a sure sign that I don't need what ever's in that drawer.
Kinda stupid to be holding onto clothes for sentimental's sake.

I suppose I should also colour my hair. Honestly, how can one have so much hair and have the ones up front turning grey?! Sure, genetics.. I suppose I do prefer grey hairs than thinning hairline.

I have two books to read, Marie Kondo's The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying and that new Harry Potter book, which amazingly I haven't even flip open yet!

Anyway, so many things to do with my three days but first, I should wash my face and take a shower.
'Til next time!

Of money.

I feel like growing up not having much kinda makes me bad at handling money. The fact that growing up getting hand me downs, not getting the toys I'd wanted, my need to get what I want gets even stronger as I earn my own money.
Of course I am thankful for having a roof over my head. Thankful to have two sisters.
But growing up in Shah Alam, having friends from upper middle-class families, comparing what they had and what YOU had.. kinda messes up your brain.
I think.

So now whenever I get some cash to spare, I tend to spend them on stupid things. Things that makes me happy for owning it but not necessarily practical or useful in everyday life.
I have seven shades of Kat Von D's Everlasting Liquid Lipsticks. Who the hell needs seven shades of that when they already own more than a dozen of lipsticks? Seriously. It would make a whole lot of sense if I am actually in the beauty industry. If I'm a serious beauty blogger, for instance. But I'm not.

Even when I do wear a full face of make up to work, owning probably twenty shades of lipsticks is way too much -- considering that they are not meant to be kept for more than two, maybe three years.
Yet I still browse through Sephora.. wondering what other shades that I could add to my collection.
Stupid, right?

Even stupid when here I am, talking about my own stupidity and still thinking about that shade 'Mother' from Kat Von D.
Stupid stupid stupid.

Anyway, if you still remember that post when I listed my mid-year wishlist.. I crossed two from those things that I wanted.

Managed to get that NARSissist Jetsetter face palette as I was flying out from Bangkok a couple of weeks ago. I was SO happy to have found it, but I've only used it once since I bought it.

The second would be this notebook that I am typing on.
Bought this while I was out with Bestie and he had compared what I got with something else that has better specs for what I was spending.
I got the 13" Macbook Air.
I had considered getting the gold Macbook but even I couldn't justify paying the extra 1k just because "I like the colour".
Anyway, I don't think this is a stupid purchase at all. Just felt kinda crazy for wanting a Mac when all my life I've used a PC and what I wanted to do with this is pretty basic.

Obviously switching from Windows to Mac requires a bit of adjusting. But considering the Windows that I'm familiar with is Windows XP (ha!) I'm pretty sure if I get any regular laptop I'd still need to readjust myself. I've seen Bestie's laptop.. I understood none of it! hahahaha
I feel like an old granny.

So recently I've been handed a bit of cash (which is why I'm yapping about spending them right now) and my brain is getting a little overworked about it. I've paid off my cards, going to pay off the loan Dida gave me first thing next month, and I plan on paying off my PTPTN loan.

I'd prefer to pay off that bloody loan first thing, to be honest. But if you know me at all.. I HATE making official phone calls. Hate being all serious on the phone when I hate talking on the phone in the first place. I mean, sure talking on the phone is way easier than having to travel to some official looking office, but most times I feel like my hearing is SO bad or at least my eardrums and brain isn't connected as well as I hope it would. So yeah.. I'm procrastinating. I'll make that phone call when I couldn't put it off any longer. hahahaha!

Maybe Tuesday.
Tuesday should be good.

I'm heading to Bangkok again today. NOT looking forward to it. My roster is SO packed, I'm half-expecting to be sick sometime later this month. 102 block hours, 169 duty hours, 9 days off. Even looking at that is starting to make me feel sick!

Now I should finish up my laundry before I get ready for work.
Between Pokémon Go and the limited days off, I really don't have the time for laundry anymore!

Poke-zombie Apocalypse.

So the game Pokémon Go has hit Malaysia.. hard.
Everyone seems to be so into it, myself included! hahahaha

I say that I am mostly influenced by Casey Neistat on Youtube. Not that he even plays it, but it all seemed so crazy and intriguing that I couldn't help myself! The mere idea of walking around town "catching" all these pokémons seemed fun. The fact that I kinda grew up watching the anime also contributed to my fascination towards the game.

I only realised how crazy it was getting last night anyway.
Bestie and I had spent our free time driving around Bukit Jalil for the past few days, mind you. Started off on Sunday before heading for our flight together.

We touched down just before 11 pm.
Then we walked around the airport, hitting up all the Pokéstops and catching whatever's around.
Before actually making our way home, we headed to Aked Esplanad where we knew had six Pokéstops. We weren't the only ones driving by the shop lots in less than 10km/h.. and there were people just walking around the blocks with their phones in one hand, and a powerbank in the other.
It didn't hit me yet, then.
Oh by the way, we got home at 1:30 am that night.

That next day, Mumu suggested dim sum for lunch.
Naturally I wouldn't pass up the chance for dim sum! And yes, I was curious on what I might catch in KLCC Park. The crowd while I was waiting for Mumu to arrive wasn't bad. I saw a lot of Pokéstops in the park from where I was just chilling -- closer to the mall.
But after we had our meal and a little bit of shopping, we all headed for the park where Mumu became my designated chaperon so I wouldn't walk into things that I wasn't supposed to walk into.
The crowd was MASSIVE. So many people -- in work attires, even -- were walking around with their eyes glued to their phone screen.. whom then suddenly stop in the middle of the path to catch some pokémon, I believe. It was crazy! The reception on my phone was SO bad!
Still it didn't hit me though.

That night Dida came by to see me and we went to NSK to do some grocery shopping. On our way back I persuaded her to drive through Aked Esplanad, since she plays the game as well.
She was surprised with the turn out. Saying that the people in Bukit Jalil are crazy.
We laughed. Still didn't hit me.

Yesterday Bestie and I headed out to Pavilion; partly for lunch and the other part is to "see" the Pokémon scene in Bukit Bintang area. We managed to catch plenty. Bestie seemed to think that it was a "successful" outing. I'd say that KLCC Park is a lot more exciting, but then again having to deal with the bad reception was pretty annoying.

Again on our way home, we stopped by Aked Esplanad to get more Pokéballs as we were running low. Also, we've both drained our powerbank and had only about 20% of battery left on our phones. We parked the car then stationed ourselves in this sweet spot where we could hit up three Pokéstops, activated a Lure Module on two of the Pokéstops and just waited.

That's when it hit me.
As I was sitting there.
Seeing how suddenly people flocked into the area.
Cars driving by in a crawl.
People shuffling around with their heads down.
The Lure Module didn't only attract the pokémons -- it attracted the poké-zombies too!!

This game is seriously addictive.. and a bit much, if I'm being honest!
Even though I'm really into it right now, I am also wondering when this will fade away. I, for the most part am into the game just to collect the different pokémon. No feelings towards battling them out.
So I can foresee the game becoming dull for me after a while. Kinda the reason why I am writing this now rather than later! hehe

Enough random for one night.
Got myself a new laptop so I no longer have an excuse to not write more in the near future! I might even write about this new laptop! ha!
