I've been traveling back and forth between JB/KL with Kyle over the past couple of weeks because he has stuff to do and I'm relatively free. Its exhausting and expensive to keep making these trips. Can't wait till he's actually done completely and moves to KL.
We made travel plans for November. Initially I was putting it off because ticket prices seemed really expensive and I didn't want to fly with Malaysia Airlines after all the drama I had with them last year. We came across a promo from Singapore Airlines that was so much cheaper and we decided to go with that. I'm quite excited for the trip. But its going to be so hectic because I need to fly back home to help my mum with something right before our trip. 
I have very little patience for rude businesses. I don't care how cheap/expensive or how good your product is. If you're rude to me I won't be returning. Seriously, how are people okay with rude customer service?

I haven't been as productive as I wanted to be for the past couple of days. I bought a fountain pen for Kyle's graduation gift and honestly it has been such a nightmare. The shop engraved the name incorrectly on the pen so I had to get it done again. And because the shop is a bit far from my place I  requested to pick it up at their second outlet thinking that it is nearer. But turns out its even further. Anyway, I went to pick it up and they told me its not ready and they called me to tell me. I didn't get any calls from anyone. Quite disappointed with the customer service. To start off, the pen wasn't cheap at all. And this was a shop with a good reputation. I hate it when shops give the "you want you buy la. don't want then leave" attitude. With them trying to shift all the blame on me, they've agreed to courier the pen to my place for free. I just hope that it doesn't have any damages or anything wrong with the engraving. Even if it does, I&#…

I've been extremely busy with deadlines I haven't even had time to sleep properly. Been spending the last week settling all the stuff I put on hold because of uni deadlines and I'm still not done yet. 
When I moved to KL earlier in January, I sold off my fridge and washing machine to the landlord in JB since he wanted to buy it. We mutually agreed that he will bank in the amount by the end of March. I reminded him about it at the end of March and he told me that he will bank in at the end of April. He didn't do that either. So I asked him again last week and he told me he will pay me back at the end of May. I mean, its just RM 750. How hard is it to pay back RM 750? And mind you, this is someone who claims to live in a bungalow and work as a manager at a local bank. So I told him that he should have honestly told me that if he wasn't able to afford the fridge and washing machine. Obviously that hurt his ego too much and he immediately transferred RM 750 to my acco…

I'm going to apologise in advance if this post offends anyone.
Why are men of certain ethnic groups/religious beliefs so insecure when it comes to their wife? Imagine a situation where a male doctor has to examine someone's wife in the presence of her husband and a female chaperone and its still not okay. I can't understand this nonsense. I was just told today that "patients in Kuala Lumpur are not like the ones in Johor Bahru. Here, they're more educated, more open minded and will not let any male doctor touch their wife to examine them." So tell me the part where patients in Kuala Lumpur are more educated and open minded if they can't even let a male doctor examine them in the presence of a chaperone. It's no longer religious freedom when it affects everyone's job at a public hospital.

Or maybe their insecurity stems from watching too much doctor/patient porn.

One of the things that irritates me about some people is the attitude towards mental illnesses. On one end of the spectrum, some people don't even believe that its real. Others self diagnose themselves with depression every other minute. The other day someone told me that they have Major Depressive Disorder while speeding through traffic in downtown KL. I always believe what people say about their conditions unless I have a reason not to. So I probed further and asked if he's getting any professional help and his answer was no. I can't even. I just wish people would stop taking mental illness lightly.

I've had a couple of posts in my drafts for a while now. Sometimes I tend to overthink about what I should post. But at the end of the day I doubt it really matters.
I had a meeting the other regarding a group assignment. I booked a room and checked that everyone was free and all of them agreed. One of them didn't turn up and all the others were late ranging from 10 mins to 30 mins. I was so irritated. On top of that, there was one guy who kept going on and on about how he has so many job offers from UK instead of discussing the assignment. I just hope that everyone comes for the next meeting so that we can get over with this.

Kyle and I are planning to go somewhere without light pollution soon for some star photography and I'm so excited. I haven't really uploaded any of the photos to Instagram from our trips either.

I hate it when my sleep cycle gets messed up. Kyle chose to take the earliest flight to go to JB today. So we were up by 5am. And I slept at 3am. After dropping him off at the airport I came back home and tried to get some work done but I was too sleepy. I fell asleep around 9am I think. And woke up at 5pm. Kill me. I can never take naps. So there goes any chance of me being able to sleep tonight. 
We went to a lawyer's office to get some of my documents certified the other day. Oh my. The lawyer was hot! Haha. Like the hot daddy type. I miss having people around me that I can talk about with things like these.
I had a meeting at the hospital the other day about the ethics application. I got the call about it at 12pm and we were supposed to be there by 2pm. I'm not very familiar with the hospital and I'm terrible with directions. So I decided to take GrabCar instead of driving there. The first driver called me and asked me to cancel because he was "on the opposite si…
