Inane ramblings which escaped my mind

Rambling Thoughts

The Summary of My Life

I think the reason to why I haven’t really been blogging is because I think my life is now revolved in a constant, stagnant cycle.If I were to blog everyday it’d be:

Monday:

Sigh… changed media. Stupid cells overgrow themselves over the weekend again. Too much cells. Have to plate the cells for flow cytometry work.

Tuesday:

PCR… woohoo! Bands!

Wednesday:

ARGGGGHH!! SHIT! Stained stupid cells and acquired results does not telly with previous results

Thursday:

Repeat Wednesday. Emailed supervisor.

Friday:

Repeat experiment as requested by supervisor

Saturday:

JOY!!! Break time! But went into lab to change cell culture media 😦

Sunday:

Did PCR twice cuz first results look funny.

Fought with a bloody fucker named ONG GHIM HOCK. Screw him… he’s an arsehole.

Why is it Monday already?!


Hidden Expressions

 

Today I went to Pratheep’s dad’s funeral. It was then only I knew, the smiling, easygoing face is a mask he had to put on everyday in the lab to hide his troubles. I was even talking to him about the stresses of MY work just last week, not knowing the pain HE was going through. Yet, he was supportive and kind to me 😦 Now I feel that my worries are kinda insignificant compared to his.


Pregnancy…

I THINK MY HAMMIE IS PREGNANT!!

Whattodowhattodowhattodo??!! This is the results of no family planning. Why didn’t I opted to separated the male and female hammie instead of lumping them together in one cage to save the hassle?

I need to give Ecchi and Icchi a lecture on abstinance.


Bear

I think I really need someone to stop me from buying more hamsters….

I am going to be very poor from just feeding them =S


House Pets

Recently, I have been getting a lot of hamsters. After giving Icchi his “freedom”, I thought that I’d like to dedicate a post to them. This way, I have something to remember them by.

I first got Icchi from Mun. He got sick and tired of rearing hammies, and he asked me to take in one of his male which don’t get along with the rest. This way he don’t have to take care to two cages.

I then bought Ecchi to accompany Icchi. The little guy was a well spent RM25. So far, he seems to be the tamest of all. And the most adored by all too, since he is rather easy-going.

After almost 6 months and I am confident with my hamster rearing skills, I went back for Moachi. For some reason, Moachi was not compatible with Ecchi. So far, she is the most aggressive and bad-tempered of all the hammies.

Just a week ago, I realised that my he is a she. I specifically told the sale assistant that I would like to get a male hamster. *sigh* Thank goodness they were staying in separate cages. I am not mentally, physically and emotionally prepared for baby hammies. Now I know why Ecchi was so busy humping her when we first put them together, I thought Ecchi was either gay or just to desperate.

This is my recent purchase, Kuachi. I decided to follow the theme, since all my hammies has names with the suffix, -chi. Plus, it fits his markings which resembles the sunflower seed shells.

Kuaci…. hmm… I think he hates me ‘cuz since the Moachi incident, I kept turning him over to ensure he is really a he. Everytime he sees my hand, he turns his back towards me. *sad*

This how Icchi is like now…. his right eye is swollen and we are not to sure what to do. In the end, we decided to let him go “free” and let him go into the wilds of UPM’s forest.

ps: kinda regretted I didn’t take more pictures of Icchi.


Joy

My only  desire now is to hide somewhere and read. I believe the greatest joy derives from a hot cup of green tea and a comfy place to read all the books that I have accumulated over the year.

Its sad so see how research has come between me and my joy.

Money Problems

My student funds are running out…. I am constantly hearing:

Sad isn’t it… Why is money is a constant headache in a student’s life? Depressing =/


KTM Station, Kluang

Ever since I could remember, my favorite breakfast as always been toast and half boiled eggs from the coffee shop at Kluang’s KTM station, now known as Kluang RailCoffee. The joy in having my toast and seeing the people boarding and disembarking the train while the station master blows his whistle to tell people to hurry up as the train is leaving soon.

Now, the quality of the toast has gone down and the price has gone up. I no longer go there anymore for my favorite breakfast but I still love the hussle bustle of it when I send my bro off to Singapore by train.

Recently, I have been worrying that KTMB will suddenly decide to renovate Kluang’s quaint little station. So I made it a point to bring all my cameras back to Kluang and made a little trip to the station with WeiHar before we leave for KL.

Surprisingly, there were many people with DSLR…. and it don’t look like Joey or ChouMin’s type of DSLR. It was those big and expensive looking ones with huge lens. I felt really out of place with my Kiev and Lx5 . But I met this nice indian man and he made me feel better by praising Kiev  XD

P1020952

Although I went around taking as many shots as I could, using Kiev but I felt that my eye for composition is still pretty weak. Which was why I took most of my photos with Lx5.

I am still a little disappointed with my pictures. Someday, when I have improved, I’ll go back again to do justice to my hometown’s historical landmark. Hopefully there won’t be any changes by then.

Strangers, again…

Mun showed me this video. I was near tears at the end of it.

It’s not that I am trying to jinx a person’s relationship but I think what he said is pretty true.

Relationship goes through stages but it is what we do in those stages that counts in determining the growth of the relationship.


Decision Making

Dad’s just told me he wants to get me a DSLR for my 25th. Deep in my heart, I went, “YEAYYYYYYYYY….!!!”

I was always envious of my friends who have DSLRs. I really really wanted one. But after I calmed down and thought about it, I wonder if I really want to be one of the crowd. Everyone now has a DSLR… and I mean EVERYONE. It seems like every Tom, Dick and Harry I see on the street/mall/park/convention/exhibition has a DSLR.

The 2nd question is, I am someone willing enough to cart around a DSLR on my outings? I really doubt that I’d like carting my camera around the mall… it seems so weird.

3rd questions, will I have the money to buy the lenses that I want? I am a macro person… I love taking food, flowers, animals etc. up-close and I’ll admit that I am not a very hardworking person to go around with my camera.

*sobs* guess I’ll just go for a digital compact
