i told you not to scroll down!
now prepare yourselves to be disgusted. (hey, you asked for it.)

so it turns out that my toenail turning black was the foretelling of a double nail.

from what i understand, this occurs when a new nail forms and grows underneath an already existing nail. the new one pushes up and through, forcing the old nail out. although this may sound painful, it's only mildly uncomfortable in the early stages. my new nail growing out didn't cause me any pain at all.

sure it was insanely creepy and weird, but nothing else apart from that.



my existing nail being shed, pushed out by my new growing nail underneath.


and this is how it looked after the old nail completely came off.

BLANKET BLUES

Someone once asked me which of my possessions I am attached to the most. 
I have used the same blanket (blankets?) since I was 5 years old. There are two of them so that no matter what, I’ll always be able to have one in bed with me. However, one of them has been unravelling slightly and has been cut up to use as kitchen rags. 
NOOOOOOOOO
*cries*

My heart is heavy and my soul is in shreds. :'(

SWISHY SHINY LOCKS

while i love my long hair, what i don't love so much is the amount of effort that comes with maintaining it. do you know how much more work i have to put in, yet my hair is never as healthy as it was when it was short?


me with short hair, circa 2009.


me with long hair, taken sometime last year in november.


december 2011 ; this was the longest my hair ever was.

when i had short hair, i hardly had to put in much effort to take care of it but it would still be glossy and healthy. however, now if i want my hair to stay looking nice and shiny, i have to use conditioner every time i wash my hair. do you know how much of a hassle using conditioner is? you're standing there with your head full of suds, and you're supposed to wait 3minutes for it to work its effects. 

those leave-in ones don't cut it for me, i have to use the proper ones in the shower.

wait three minutes in the shower for conditioner to work?


well anyway, i have figured out the most efficient way to shower without wasting time waiting for my hair conditoner to work.

step 1 - shampoo your hair thoroughly. rinse.
step 2 - apply conditioner generously, combing through your hair to maximize distribution.
step 3 - leaving the conditioner in to moisturize your hair, you can start meticulously soaping yourself over now. pay special attention to armpits and buttcrack.
step 4 - continue soaping. be as anal as possible ; between toes, the crook of your knees, inner elbows, behind ears, etc etc. be mindful that the more anal you are = the longer you are taking = the cleaner you get = the conditioner has more time to work in your hair = your hair gets more and more awesome.
step 4 - rinse everything off in one go, towel yourself dry, and step out the shower as fresh as a daisy with fantastic hair to boot.

yes you can send your appreciation notes and cheques to :

ICF OUTING


so here i am blogging about inti cf outing, which actually happened about two weeks ago. the plan was for our group to play some captainball first, then shower and head for lunch. 

since i was bringing the captainball equipment, i knew it was better for me to be there early. however, only crickets chirping greeted me when i reached lol. bryan was the next one who arrived, but we couldn't exactly play a game of anything with only two people.

since that was the case, we went into ryan's house to chill and play with his rat sugar glider.


look at my awesome MS paint mask! cos i look lousy in that photo heh.

soon after, more people came and we were able to get on with captainball. 


playing team sports after so long felt so good! running certainly has its perks of being effective, but at times it can also get lonely and tedious doing something alone, day in and day out.


the picture above - when you see it.

after that, we proceeded to wondermilk at damansara for lunch. maybe some of us suddenly pulled out in favour of cheap hawker food (ahem ahem) and then came inside leeching the fact that we had friends who were paying customers inside, because we're money-savvy like that hee hee. 


high noon, one of the board games we played. to give credit to bryan, he did try very very hard to teach and advise us how to play it but it was either too complicated or we were to dumb. we got frustrated and gave up after a while. then i went around and took some pictures of the cafe.


stealing some of bryan's pictures from facebook as well since he had such an awesome camera which took such nice shots.



also i really like how they had a bunch of fresh flowers on every table in the cafe.


pretty daisies. i love daisies!


and since we're on the topic, i'll have you know that my favourite flowers are daisies, peonies, roses, and tulips. well actually i love most flowers ; if you're friends with me on facebook you'll see that there are quite a number of my profile pictures which have flowers in them as well.

anyway, more random pictures of wondermilk's interior and of our group as well. it rained cats and dogs so we stayed much longer than planned, just sitting around and chilling and chatting and taking pictures until it was time to go home.

ALL THINGS CUTE


"SHUT UPPPP!!!!!" i yelled at the top of my lungs.

***

oh, those cursed cats. for nearly a whole fortnight now, what sounded like a whole clowder (that's the collective term for a group of cats people, look it up) of cats would gather directly outside my bedroom window. 

they then would proceed to have the most deafening caterwauling, recklessly screaming their lungs out producing godawful yowling that i swear can be heard all up and down my street, annoying the heck out of everyone trying to get a peaceful night's rest. 

most of all, it annoys ME. with those dratted cats right outside my window, i'm the one who gets the full brunt of their wretched meowing.

last night, they were at it again. i lay in my bed for a few moments. with my pillow over my head, with my blanket over my pillow over my head - nope, there was no way i could muffle their gleeful ruckus. irritated, i opened the window to get a look of the tone-deaf feline choir.

there they were, merrily yowling away with no notion whatsoever of the grief they were causing me. idiots. a tabby, a patched, and another black-and-orange one. i glared upon their oblivious beings, with no idea whatsoever as to what i should do. there was no way i was going to go down, unlock the kitchen door and venture out into the dark and cold night to shoo them off - it was too much trouble.

"YOWW YOWW EOWWW, RWEOOWW NGEOWWRR YOWWW" they happily carried on. and i had enough.

"SHUT UPPPP!!!!" i shouted at them angrily at the top of my lungs. startled, they turned around and saw me. briefly, it seemed as though that was the end of their night's symphony. but for a moment, the patched one had the nerve to start up again "eoww, yeoww.. " 

"SHHHHH!!!" i hissed furiously again. "shut up, you idiots!" 

they stared at me for a few seconds. one got up, stretched, and padded away jauntily. soon after, the other two followed suit. 

i shut my window in a huff and returned under the covers.

***

upon waking up the next morning, it seemed much funnier in daylight as compared to annoying and irritating when i was really trying to get some shuteye. 

"did i really shout at a trio of noisy cats to turn it down? and it worked?"

heh.
