Worked really hard for my back to back calls last weekend and made the right decisions~ phew.. totally did not sleep last night cos was bothered every hour to half an hour by phone calls from casualty, labour room, SCN and to a lesser extent ward thinking about the problematic babies that cannot tolerate feeding/developed fever etc.

Post call i went back and had a long snooze (from 2.30 to 6 pm) and have been just watching TV and youtube since. Jh is on call so I'm just passing my time away~ starting to feel sleepy though.

I've been missing on so many Spore variety shows these past 2 years but luckily i have Youtube muahaha~ love love love it~ Been watching Paris and Milan lately. It's a bit lame at first but then you soon get used to the camp and corny jokes that you can't help chuckling along.

I don't know why people upload shows on youtube or songs for that matter but i think they are wonderful selfless souls who spend hours of their time uploading good clips to share with poor deprived people like me.Thank you whoever you are~

Slim River cheap~

Even though there is practically nothing to do in Slim River, it can't be denied things here are still rather cheap especially services! I have grown to love Chinese hair salons since i worked as a houseman in Ipoh. In Ipoh hair salons are everywhere (boutiques too) and there were two at a row of shops opposite my rented house then.

I picked the old school obasan looking one which was run by a Taiwanese obasan and her daughter and they gave such excellent and friendly service i had to come back for more.At the time i loved feeling like i was in a real home with a TV and family chatter cos my house then was really empty. But what i loved most of all was the lovely hair washes. I had never known that a hair was in a chinese salon is never just a hair wash.It is a full head massage.. plus neck massage too.

I would practically feel so relaxed i would close my eyes and nearly sleep on the salon chair while they caress and massage my scalp. Pure bliss. A haircut plus wash in Ipoh is 35 ringgit. Practically JB salon prices (high class salons like Jantsen and Thomas and Guys charge around 45).

But in Slim River.. whoa.. idun noe if i get special treatment or wat .. but the hair wash and blow lasts for damn long. A cut is just 9 bucks.. and it only takes 10 minutes. Then 50 minutes is spent washing and massaging my head.. first it was the shampoo girl who was nice and gentle.I was like half smiling while she massaged my scalp , behing my ears, my temples, and the neck and shoulder massage was just heavenly. She did 2 washes and iwas already really pleased and satisfied and ready for the rinse when the owner and hairdresser herself came and took over.

She started massaging and then started scratching my scalp! Like really aggressive vigourous scratching. I've read that people actually like that but not me. It was painful at times but nothing unbearable. She actually did it for another 2 cycles (imagine they squirted shampoo on my hair 4 times!!) then only started rinsing. She made up for the scratching by really blowing my hair properly and making it look real nice and straight. All that effort and i only paid 10 ringgit for the wash and blow.

Fu yoh damn worth it~hahahaha~

And the other day i bought some cloth from my nurse~ kain sutera from Terengganu with hand painted Batik design. It was something i have never seen cos the cloth was 2 metres of one pattern and 2 metres of a different pattern so the top and the bottom will match but have diferren patterns. Coolness. I don't know if it's cheap of expensive but i paid rm 150 for that. But what i do know is the sewing is really cheap. Only 40 bucks for a baju kurung! haha but dunno what it will turn out to look like though.

All Slim River needs now is a nice reflexology parlour ~ muahaha

Food and happy buys

Nothing very much happened just the usual work work work and spend spend spend~ woots.. besides the fact of course that someone actually found my phone, switched it off.. switched it on again but refuse to pick up calls and then hand the phone to her brother Bernard who then tracked JH's number through my sim card at the Taman Tun maxis centre with the intention of giving it back~ the rest is otherwise history and am now thankful that honest people still exist in this world.

Put a post up on facebook and so far comments have been like,

'I've never heard anyone recovering their phone once they've lost it.'

'How come no one returned my phone when i lost it'

The only sane answer i could think of is :
1) Luck
2) My phone is not worth much to be sold and is falling apart
3) The guy who returned it says he knows how it feels to lose a phone as it has happened tohim
before.. so also luck
4) er.. karma? I found a phone once in IMU and returned it~
5) most people already own a phone~ no point having too many cheap phones

So anyway have a lot of random photos in JH's phone which i thought i'll just upload here.

Elaine and Jin Aun's graduation~

Finally get to meet up again~ the tree of us used to do really crazy things as a kid

When Elaine and Lynda came down to JB once.. i think we were in primary we pretended we were the famous five.. we called ourselves the fabulous four and were cracking a case involving my neighbour (who lives directly opposite-easier to spy on) and his Philipino maid. I forgot what exactly we were looking for but we would spend a lot of time at my balcony spying on his maid if we don't see her we would deduce that she was missing~ and due to the over influence of Enid Blyton books we would have midnight feasts and hide all our food in the toy basket~ We also buried treasure in my house and made a pact to uncover it the next time the 3 of us are in JB again~ and the 'treasure' is still buried till today cos that was the last time all 3 of us were in JB~

Lynda bought this RM120 bouquet from!!

Whee~ we're all the same height~

No pics with Jin Aun cos all of it is in Jh's mom's camera~

The rest are shopping photos... the only way i can justify that working is worthwhile~

Jh loving his Paddington house of pancakes~

This is a pancake?? Its called Brussels and i chose it cos there was bacon~

The following week we ate at 'the apartment' at the curve.. and basically the decor was like an apartment.
And we ate in the bedroom~

Drinking ice lemon tea...

and eating the entree of bread and butter...

so little ler~

Our appetizer.. cheese platter~ i've always wanted to eat this since watching it on Discovery travel and living.. but it was rather the end of it i was rather sick of cheese. The best tasting thing on this platter?? The frozen grapes!

Dig the blue cheese~ but too much of a good thing aint good..

Jh ate pasta~

While i had more bacon~
Bought the weirdest things this trip.. haha.. sort of addicted to going to Daiso and just browsing through all the 5 dollar stuff.. Bought a highly recommended by skindeco eye brow pencil.. and reflexology stepping pads as i am having post-ipoh reflexology withdrawal syndrome. I wish i could have reflexology every single day!

Bought some working clothes from Padini~

And bought a dance mat!!
Only 60 ringgit and it really works a sweat.. So far Jh has been practically pulverizing me in this game~ my God i have really bad hand eye coordination and reflexes.. i think i shall let my kids play more video/computer games.. i do it once a day to fulfill my exercise quota for the week..

Also bought Archie comics.. 3 for Rm27.. the normal price is 14 ringgit per comic.. still expensive but was really itching to read some comics.Gonna pass them to Ben when i'm done reading.

And lastly residual photos from Pei Lynnn and Voon's wedding.. did not turn out that great but i think Shin Chee looks good in this photo.. haha so upload just in case he wants it.

Smiles all around~

Nice wedding invitation card~

Can't wait for the weekends to rest again~ rather tired from working..
