I’m happy right now. Things are actually turning out good. I woke up around 9AM today, like usual, did my little wake-up routine, and ate some cold bread with Nutella spread. That stuff kicks ass. Nothing like a dose of pure chocolate and sugar to jumpstart your day.

I went out to Carrefour today. We had to buy groceries, so go figure. There were more people than we expected there, so a parking spot took a while to find. But whatever. I’m not the one driving, I’m just along for the ride. Sent off this little postcard to Alice. It shows the Petronas Twin Towers, the Skybridge, and has a nifty little blurb on the back. Justin wrote everything out. The message had absolutely no value. Perhaps the most profound thing that he put down on there was a picture of a psychedelic bee. He’s got a thing for drawing psychedelic bees.

Uh. So we got the postcard sent off to Alice. Hopefully it doesn’t get completely raped and brutalized in transit. It’s a pretty postcard.

I looked around the eyewear stores, asking about contacts. Just wanted to give them a shot, at least know that I have an alternative in the case that I don’t feel like wearing glasses for a while. I sure as hell don’t want to keep on wearing glasses while running Cross Country. Every single time they start slipping down, I have to slow down to readjust them. Got some prices. Then I realized that this whole time I’ve been asking for prices with no regard to the brand of the lenses, to whether or not they’re for astigmatic eyes, whether or not they’re daily disposables. Whoops. Oh well, it can’t be all that bad.

I went to Focus Point and asked. It was funny because the lady there didn’t answer my questions exactly. I’d really appreciate some background knowledge from them, seeing that I don’t have any experience with contacts. However, I didn’t get much of anything. She had me do a very quick eye examination. It turns out that either my prescription really hasn’t deviated that much, that glasses require a higher prescription than contacts, or that the machine was just out of whack.

So I got my prescription down. It’s around -425 in both eyes, astigmatism has gotten worse since my prescription from two years ago. It makes perfect sense seeing that I do nothing but gaming and glaring at my computer monitor. The Focus Point lady asked if I’d like to try out the lens, I agreed not knowing what in hell was expected of me.

I don’t even remember how many tries it took to get the first one into my right eye. I’ve got to force my eyes open as far as possible and even so, it keeps getting stuck against my eyelashes. Guess that may have scratched up the lens on the inside a bit. It’s a strange feeling, and I get a little freaked out when my finger is poking around on the surface of my eye. The second lens was much easier to get in, not nearly as many problems as the first one. Yay. And so, the lady takes my glasses, puts them into a little case for me, and hands them back and starts talking about the box of contacts that she opened up for me. Well, that was kind of unexpected. I didn’t realize I was obligated to purchase a single thing. Whatever. It’s RM25 for 5 pairs of CIBA Vision Focus Dailies, so RM5 a day. Provided that I don’t tear the contacts by mistake or anything.

So I just bought what was left in that box. I paid her RM11 because I didn’t have anything more, got the remaining three contacts in the box, and went into Carrefour to look for my mom and Justin. Bah. My mom told me to run back and get a receipt, I went ahead and did that. I don’t think the lady at the shop likes me. Whatever. Christ, these things are confusing. Go away you scary women.

So now I’ve got a pair of contacts and one little stray. I’ll go order some more daily disposables eventually, when I make up my mind as to what I think about these. It’s a little strange having an extra layer right above your eye. I can feel it when my eyelid passes over the contact on my right eye, but perhaps it’s because that one took forever to get in. Perhaps I should get some eyedrops too.

We bought beer today. While we were checking out, I suggested it. Then I ran over to the beer section with Justin and picked up 5 bottles of Heineken. It’s been a while since I’ve had any beer around the house. Hell yeah.

Got two boxes of pizza from Domino’s, picked up a bucket of 9 pieces of chicken from KFC, and drove back home. So we ate.

Dinner was Domino’s pizza leftovers and whatever KFC chicken was left. Still haven’t finished up all the chicken.

I also got 150 Singaporean dollars, so I’m set and looking forward to THIMUN. Worked a bit on my resolution but I really don’t know what else to add to it. I’m running out of steam and I haven’t even written four complete Operative Clauses.

A few little pictures for fun:

You know it’s good.

Ending with Cake – Love You Madly

Music Note I don’t want to wonder
If this is a blunder
I don’t want to worry whether
We’re gonna stay together
‘Till we die

I don’t want to jump in
Unless this music’s thumping
All the dishes rattle in the cupboards
When the elephants arrive

I want to love you madly
I want to love you now
I want to love you madly, way
I want to love you, love you
Love you madly

I don’t want to fake it
I just want to make it
The ornaments look pretty
But they’re pulling down the branches
Of the Tree

I don’t want to think about it
I don’t want to talk about it
When I kiss your lips
I want to sink down to the bottom
Of the sea

I want to love you madly
I want to love you now, yeah
I want to love you madly, way
I want to love you, love you
Love you madly

I don’t want to hold back
I don’t want to slip down
I don’t want to think back to the one thing that I know I
Should have done

I don’t want to doubt you
Know everything about you
I don’t want to sit across the table from you
Wishing I could run

I want to love you madly
I want to love you now
I want to love you madly, way
I want to love you, love you
Love you madly Music Note

So let’s think here.

  • Nothing went wrong
  • Nothing has changed
  • 我还爱你 ^^”
  • Things can work out

Good luck to Robert Xie, keep your head up and things will be alright in the end. Thanks Aeden for the music. I’ve been listening to it quite a bit.
