Injury.

I spent my past 2 weeks contemplating on whether to write about this or not. And then it struck my mind. It doesn't matter what I write about, because you wouldn't read it. I spent most of my time thinking about you, the times I spend not thinking about you, I still secretly am. All that and the figurative image of me don't even cross your mind for a split second. I cried.

The furuncle that appeared on left foot after my Camp5 visit stayed around for little over 2 weeks. Having no idea what it was then, I treated it with tons of saline water and antiseptic cream thrice a day. Everything got from worse to worst after the second week. It hurt so much I could barely limp my way across the hall, but I had to get to my university. I drive a stick and not an auto, so getting to where I needed to go requires a lot of work from the left part of my body. Shifting gears and stepping on clutches have been my everyday life ever since I got my learners permit. So my only option was to consult a doctor. That night, Dr X prescribed me with some antibiotics, ones that are meant to be taken orally and ones that are to be applied on the affected area. I also got some painkillers to make driving the next day less troublesome.


It was a 5 day antibiotics course, taken twice a day. The wound was healing, I was happy. On the 4th night of my antibiotics intake, I started to get rashes everywhere. Thinking it was only a minor drug allergic reaction, I stopped my antibiotics course and started on some antihistamines my mother had ready for emergencies like this. My younger sister gets weird allergies very often, so my mother carries a box of antihistamines with her at all times. 

As the night got darker, the rash started developing and it intensified. And the scratching can not be stopped, the antihistamines were not working.


I had to rush to the university the next morning for a lab experiment looking like a lobster. Everyone stared. It wasn't a good feeling. My skin only got worse, the itch was unbearable. That very same day, I was rushed and admitted to Sime Darby Medical Centre, Subang Jaya.

I was trapped in the hospital for 4 nights. Waking up to steroid jabs, steroid pills and all sorts of antihistamine pills every morning and also taking even more antihistamines and sleeping pills before bed. All I wanted to do was get out of there. All that aside, only the steroids were working. My rashes were slightly less visible. But they would come right back out as soon as the steroids wear off. The antihistamines on the other hand did not help very much with the itch.


After all the crying, pleading and begging the doctor to grant me permission to be discharged immediately because I was having a test the next day, he finally but reluctantly agreed.

After my test, I came back to SDMC. The doctor told me it was an adverse drug reaction (ADR) and my in my case that is, was the early pre-developed stage of Steven Johnsons Syndrome. I was confused because I had never heard of SJS. He elaborated on and told me that if I were to come to the ER a week later, my life would not have been spared. It is a fatal skin disease.

Frizz-free hair with Moist Diane!

Hello beauties!
I said I'll be back in May, didn't I? But I also said I'd be back after my finals, which turned out to be a lie because as I am writing this, I still have to sit for the last paper of my semester in the coming days.

眼睛受感染.

I'm sorry LOL! Lack of pictures.

我的眼睛已经痛了几天. 整个眼睛红红肿肿. 痒到死!
再加上当我眨眼睛时会很痛!! Haihh.
我的朋友一直告诉我去看医生, 但我拒绝.
因为我真的很怕医生会说 'I think you should go to the hospital.'
这种感觉我已经体验过了. 的确很恐怖.

昨晚在补习时 眼睛真得太痛太痒了.
真的BEH TAHAN! 一边补习一边流眼泪.
SeeTeng & Melissa 一直叫我去看医生.
我说OKOK. 但在我心中真的没有这个计划.

补完Physics过后就补Chemistry.
我的眼睛还在受苦. 我实在受不了了!
我觉得在我眼里好像有一粒沙.

补习过后我感到很高兴! :D
一上到车, 我就很自然的说,
'Mii, can bring me to the clinic or not?' LOL!
OMG! 我真的没想到我会说这句话.

在clinic时 我感到很紧张. GRR.
突然听到那个lady叫我的名.Ahh. 我的心跳越来越快.
我走进去, 就看到那个医生对我yam xiu. 哈哈.
Relieved :D Then i felt so stupid for being so nervous.

Doctor said it can either be caused by bacteria or might be a friend that passed it to me.
Now i have two packets of tablets to take, a bottle of 眼药水 and an eye cream.
So i'm glad i went to see the doctor :P

A trip to Taman Pertanian!

Finally, i got the pictures! Muahahah! So I'll start from Friday.
FRIDAY . 18 MAC  Same old routine. Went to tuition at 6.30pm. But with a different bag. Two very important things happened that night. Both embarrassing and scary. Okay! Let's continue. I brought a big bag, all filled with my clothes. Cause i was gonna sleepover @ Teng's place. I thought bringing my pencil box to tuition will only make my bag heavier. So  I just put a pen into the pocket of my bag.
Here comes the embarrassing part!
I wanted to take my pen out. So i slipped my hand into my bag pocket without looking. I just kept digging and digging. Then  felt something long and hard. I thought it was my pen cause it sure felt like one. Once i took it out. IT WAS MY TOOTHBRUSH!! zomg wtf! Luckily no one saw what happened. So embarrassing wooi!
Went to Teng's place after tuition. We walked out in the middle of the night to buy some bread, tuna, junk food etc. for our trip the next day. We had and encounter…

All you need to know about 8excite!

Hola to all ma money-saving homies out there! It's been a while since I last talked about my crazy aunty ways of living life. If you guys are here long enough, you'd know that all my stuffs are either given to me by relatives, friends or bought from fleas or are preloved. I do splurge once in a while, but only if I find that item very worth its value or that its a super cheap deal (meaning the original price is waaaaaaay higher, my forte is about at least 40-50% hahaha). You know why? Cos I am cultured to be an aunty since a very young age. I'm sure there are many of you out there as well. Let's call us, young aunties.
It's 8excite! 
Before I go on any further, you should totes download the app on your phone. The app is basically a platform that offers crazy deals on things such as food, beauty and wellness, leisure and travelling, shopping and more. So, this post goes out to all my young aunties out there! The app and website are also all categorized neatly for ea…

4 things we did at Port Dickson!

Hello 2016 and hello earthlings!  Valentine's day just blew past and soon Chinese New Year will be coming to an end. Before you know it, the first 2 months of the year have disappeared! NOO! Time, can you please take a chill pill? I have so much to talk and rant about, I can't contain myself like wtf. 
In the beginning of the year, I went to Port Dickson with #themonsters9x. Every time we go out for trips, we would take heap loads of photos. But these days, nobody dedicates a whole album on Facebook to your trip lo. So, all you are left with are photos and memories in your hard disk waiting for you to look back at it one day and go 'AWWWW'. So ah, where else am I allowed to spam photos without being judged other than my blog, right? 

Going to Church for the first time

Hello there, beautiful creatures of the earth!For most of you who did not know, I am not religious. To add on to that, I am also very shallow in knowledge when it comes to religions. I consider myself an atheist not because I do not want to believe in any gods, but because I can't seem to do so. That being said, if one day I do feel the presence of a higher being, I wouldn't deny it or reject the fact that there is an existence of it. But as of now, this is all I have. The title may seen a little misleading as this wasn't my actual FIRST time at church. But anyway, the last time I step foot into a church was 6 years ago. So, I guess we'll just leave it at that.
In my entire life, I have been to 3 churches. And through every visit, all I felt was skeptical, a little uncomfortable and very curious. Mostly due to the fact that I only went because that Christian friend of mine asked me to. I have to admit, I wasn't very fond of the idea back then. The first church I wen…

Maybelline Color Sensational The Loaded Bolds Lipstick Review

Hello all you lipstick lovers and non lovers!  The other day I was minding my own business and pretending to be a good student in uni when suddenly I got a phone call from a weird number. I picked it up and it was the postman! I have to admit, I really love phone calls from the postman, especially Poslaju and Skynet and every other rapid courier service. Its like a call from the online shopping gods in heaven! 😍

She did not hesitate at all and went on with opening up MY PACKAGE 😡 She sent me a photo of it and it was... A box filled with Maybelline's all new The Loaded Bolds bullet lipsticks 💄💋 and one The Falsies Push Up Angel Mascara! 👁

On A Daily Basis.

Hello! It's been a while! I am a very busy girl, involuntarily of course. Apparently my schedule is always flushed with books, reports and tests. I have tests almost every weekend, consecutively until the end of my trimester. And then comes the next semester and guess what? It starts all over again! How wonderful, no? *hehe 
But honestly, you really can't blame me. UTAR have this strict policy of getting a 100% success rate on making their students suffer and they also restrict their students from having a social life. Or maybe even to be a lil more precise, a LIFE. I'm lucky to even be here right now! *blessed :P
Here's my face so you won't get bored! Or forget how I look like!  Which ever comes first. Haha
Speaking of which, I have these two guy friends that calls me 'Daily Basis'. Just because I upload pictures of myself on a daily basis. Priceless. Haha. *You know who you are. But all jokes aside, I do think that I do that too frequently. I shall do my…
