Pent Up Anger

So angry today. Some jerk had the nerve to cut into line, so I shoved him for cutting in. Bastard shoved back. I wish the term killing in kindness actually meant some sort of weapon to bash his and his pretentious lady friend in the head. Morbid imagination, but that is why I am not granted any superpower. I will misused it indefinitely.

Ah well, I guess I have to imagine the bastard getting off at Masjid Jamek LRTstation and into his cubicle while staring at his 4 walls. Then he would imagine how tough his life his and how he wished it would change  which made him an asshole to other people.

Or he could be a successful business man living his dream but having a bad day. Pffttt....looks like any salary man to me.

I am doing okay. I like my job, I like the place I am, and I like the random things I could do. I love the museum. There are some bad days, but nothing like greeting a visitor and helping them out or guide a new batch of volunteer to be a better person.

If I was behaving a bit evil, then the volunteers would have to be on their tippy toes because I will scrutinize every single details of their movements and action.

Not bad really, I get to use the public transportation and save loads of money. The ugly ass uniform allows me to be sloppy, but nothing like a good pair of cardigans to make me look slightly professional. Now that I have a RM 1200 bag (before discount of course) I will look slightly more professional. It's a nice leather bag that hopefully will age quite well. However I still can't let go of my ugly canvas Quicksilver bag. At least I know that brand provides really high quality stuff at my size.

I think writing is a hell lot better than looking at Facebook. Facebook is really annoying at certain point, yet I can't stop looking at it. No matter that. I think it will do just find to do my own thing

No more going to people's places for whatever reason. I rather sit home and play games or watch TV. I should join the gym again. It's a bonus to have my day off during the weekday. Gym is relatively empty in the day.

Can't stand the machoness of these body builder ugghh their comradely just ticks me off.

Maybe I am destined to be alone, not lonely, lonely is pathetic, alone is having fun by myself and have the world at the tip of my fingers.

Will I change? Perhaps living all alone in a house would change me to find someone to settle down with. Or maybe not.

Housing Blues - How to buy a house

Home ownership

It's one of the most adult thing you can do, and one of the most expensive thing you can own. Buying one is such a pain in the ass which sometimes makes you just want to rent forever or live with your parents.

However some people based on their own calculation, prefer to just rent or in a long term lease compared to buying.

I never knew how hard it is to buy, or maybe I just got too excited and easily pushed by everyone.

This is my step on how to buy a house using plain old simple terms


  1. Check how much loan are you qualified. Go to a bank and discuss how much loan can you apply. Just provide what other loans you have and they might figure it out.
  2. Prepare yourself for the loan
      • Identification card
      • 3 months pay slip
      • EPF form
      • Staff ID
      • Letter from company saying you are a worker
      • 3 months bank slip
      • booking receipt after you paid the fee (this is the last step, just make sure you prepare everything else first)
  3. Go find a home! You can either choose a new home or a home that someone has lived in (called sublease)
  4. Make sure your bank actually supports the company that is selling you the house if you are buying something new, So ensure that you have applied to at least 3 banks. Your  real estate agent might do it for you, but it's good to do it yourself too so that you are in control of where your money goes.
  5. Then make sure you have 10% of the total price in your pocket as a down payment for your home. Some do offer lower down payment but 10% is the norm. You can either save, take up a loan or borrow from someone. I suggest you save up. Other options are very tricky to handle if something goes wrong with the deal.
  6. Other fees, yup there are other fees to pay such as legal and stamp fees for Sales and Purchase (S&P), legal and stamp fees for Loan Application, valuation fees and real estate agent fees. These would add up to about roughly 11% of the cost of the home. 
      • However it might change due to discounts by the bank or if you bought a new home it's a discount by the property company
      • It's better to just have the extra 11%, if it's less you can use the funds for something else.
  7. Don't let them fool you or rush you, They usually give you about 20 days after you paid the booking fees for you to settle your loan.
  8. Boom you have a home.
As much as I think it was that simple, it turned very stressful for me. I thought I was eligible for the 100% loan but  I was not. Too bad the news comes after I paid the 10% down payment. The blame is place on me apparently because I was not to sign the SPA without my loan being approved. However the loan improvement took longer than 20 days I had to pay the down payment or I would be penalized for paying it late.

This a big step for me. Perhaps I should just started with a cheap home and learn the basic of home ownership. Gosh, in 2 more years, there will even be more drama with the various fees that comes with owning a home.

Can't wait.....

The story of a laptop

Laptops

It replaces computers, well desktop computers that is. I mean, a laptop does what regular people do. Surf the Internet, watch porn and do work. It also adds the ability of being mobile. I am not talking about road warriors that take their work all over the world, but simply moving it one room in the house to another or having a laptop that you can hug on the bed while watching movies.

Anyhow, I replaced my old laptop a few months ago. So far, it does what I need it to do. I wanted a faster processor, a shit load of disk space and a full HD screen, but somehow one features erks me, that  I never thought I would need.

A back lit keyboard. 

Shit...

I had a choice to buy another laptop with similar specs, but with better audio but less graphic power, but with a back lit keyboard. Who knew writing in the dark is something that I felt I need to do now.
Its a small matter though, I love the almost full size keyboard that my laptop has. I say it's almost full size, because it has a miniaturized  numerical keyboard to the left of it. I think its a standard feature for laptops with a 15.6 inch screen. 

Anyhow, what laptop am I using?

I am using the ASUS A550J laptop


Yup, not the picture of it, apparently the model I am using is a weird combination, that is interesting. It has a full HD screen which mean it projects a native 1080p display. It has a GTX 850m graphic and a i7 Processor. It rather weird combination of a laptop this price. (RM 2999)

Suddenly I found a picture of it on Mudah.


But the person was selling it WAY over the purchase price I got, and he is selling it used!! WTF!!

Too bad all I do is either watch Youtube and search random Internet stuff.

Maybe I should have gotten the Macbook Air




Long battery life, very light, and a back lit keyboard. Perfect for travelling and usage.

Then I forgotten that nearly cost RM4k, does not support full HD, and not really meant for gaming.
Hmm, I got too caught up with the back lit keyboard

However, I would still recommend a Macbook to any casual laptop users with money to burn.

Hated

Gosh

I can't believe how many times I would mumble I really hate everyone. I mean I do, but I don't. Get me? It's confusing to be inside my head, its even more confusing when it feels so incredibly hot. It's the dry season again as I write and the temperature is just too hot. It does not help that I just came back from Winter.

It's kinda sad though, that some parts of northern USA is experiencing a heavy blizzard to point that it is comical and life threatening. You seldom die due to hot weather because you can just open the window and have some water to keep dehydrated. In the cold, you will die!!! and even with all that padding, if your body temperature does not increased, or warm up, you probably die still.

Oh the horror.

I loved the dry cool Seoul weather, but the temperature dropped to a -12 Celsius and that is just bone chilling. I felt that I could withstand it, if I had a proper jacket. The one I had on seemed perfect for fall or something.

Maybe all this hate is due to that travel euphoria that just died. Ergh..Now I am getting ready to buy a house and already I felt the pinch. I guess I have to live in my parents home. I don't want to. It's time to spread my wings. There are just something I just don't want to be responsible too.

Really grown up right...

Ergh..

Who knows right, It's still to hot as I am typing and I think my wrist is busted or something

My final erghhh

I plan to move into my own house soon, at least when I think I will be doing it. As of writing, I still haven't finished with the loan. I think I am going to list down things that needs to be buy for me to fully enjoy my home. It's kinda scary actually. I am buying a really expensive home relative to my pay. It's about MYR 255k. That seemed expensive but in reality it's the cheapest home among a group of colleagues that are buying houses at the same time too. So I like to fantasize a lot, so I am going to plan what are the things I think I need to have in my house when I plan to live there on my own. These are literally the basics. I plan to shop at two places which is SenQ and Ikea.SenQ is nice because there is a extra warranty of the products, so its a better piece of mind for me. Maybe Ikea won't be on my list because I do think the stuff there is relatively expensive, but we will see

Kitchen

Fridge RM 1,300
Stove RM 200
Microwave  RM 200
Oven Toaster RM 100
Rice Cooker RM 100
Washing machine RM 1300

Living room

TV RM 1000

Bathroom

Heater RM 500


Bedroom

AC RM 1600

Those are excluding fans, light fixtures and grills
Ceiling fans should cost me around RM 150 each, I suspect I will be needing at least 2. One for the master bedroom and the other one for the living room. Maybe I will add another one for the dining area, but who knows.
The grill to cover my windows and front doors should set me back around RM 5k. I'll think I will leave about RM 3k for lights or less. Just simple light fixtures. I plan to keep the house relatively basic. I might opt out for a basic kitchen top, but who knows, if I don';t have enough money, I won't do it, if the it annoys my eyes a lot I might just do

Now lets go to Ikea and find out how much I can spend. I might have trouble here, because Ikea dos not deliver to Nilai. So lets just pick up pieces that I know can't fit in my future car.


Bedroom

Bed RM 300
Mattress RM 1000
Sheets RM 200
Pillow RM 200
Closet and Cupboard RM500

Living room

Couch RM 1500
Small table  RM 30

Dining

Tables RM 300
Chairs, RM 100

Kitchen

Lol..none maybe... use some banquet tables or something...

My romanticized version of moving in is my house will only need to have

Fridge,
Stove
Mattress
Hanging rack

This would cost me around 3k? That is the minimum amount, that I could definitely live day by day, the rest of the stuff can be bough slowly and surely.

So much on my mind

There is just so much on my mine, that there is nothing left in it. I just got back from a wonderful vacation and thank goodness for an extra two day off so that I can readjust myself. Sudden;y everything is just so irradiating. I swear to god, I might just punch someone. I am feeling a bit off, not sure why. I just want to sit in my room and listen to sad songs.

Maybe the high from that overseas trip just brought me down to earth hard. Maybe, or I am just being a little bitch. At least one thing is for sure, I did something new with my messy room. I finally found use for my Ikea lamp that I bought years ago.

This new laptop that I bought using credit, has a red on black keyboard. This little shit is almost invisible in my room. I almost regret not getting the MSI tablet because even though it is more expensive with a slightly lower graphic card, the damn thing has a lighted keyboard. Just like those expensive Macbook computers.

This laptop is only 2999 MYR, you can't even get a Macbook Pro with that money, but you do get the 11inch 128gb Macbook Air. I guess if you are just typing, surfing Internet and watching movies, it should be fine. However I wanted something more.,

Ah well, no point in crying over spoiled milked. Fake that confidence and soldier on!

Feeling very hot, maybe I will change it, into those LED bulb that does not emit this much heat

How I removed my Skin Tag

My Skin Tag Removal Story


Well all of that blog post about skin tag and lasers has lead up to this. I was invited by Dr Chen, to try out their new clinic branch at TTDI.


A few years ago I was given a chance to try Fractional CO2 laser at their UOA clinic. It was definitely an experience I will remember. It was done to remove some scars from past acne.
I was again invited to try a procedure with their new Premier Clinic which specialized in Aesthetic treatments.  They have a quite number of treatment choices ranging from lasers, botox, fillers and weight loss treatment. Basically almost everything a Holywood star does to keep them looking like they do, is available here.

I personally don’t have any issues even though I am on the plump size. However after skimming through their website, they actually provided a procedure to remove skin tags. I checked my own neck and yes, there were a few skin tags here and there.

The skin tag procedure actually uses the same CO2 laser machine that was used for my Fractional CO2 laser resurfacing. What a multipurpose machine this is.

I wonder if this is the same machine that was used on me in Wisma UOA


The reason I choose this treatment is because it’s something I need and the result in instantaneous. In addition the recovery time is every swift. Hell yeah, I am going to try this.


Bye bye pesky skin tags
When I tried to Google Map the clinic, it does not actually show itself on the map. If you managed to get the row of shoplots and the Pasar TTDI nearby, you are in the right path. Besides, by the time you drive there, the sign board is actually visible from the road side.
Parking is okay, I mean if you have an appointment, you will get a free parking in front of their clinic, if not, you can just park near the market for like 50 cent an hour.

The front entrance and reception

When you enter the clinic, it looks presentable, it feels like a regular hotel or spa lobby. However, if you just loathed being seen in an Aesthetic clinic, they do have a private waiting room inside, hidden from view, as you wait for your treatments.
No one has to know


Before getting my skin tag removed, I was prepped. They applied some numbing cream to the cleaned area of my neck and the cream is left to do its magic for about half an hour. They do have WIFI, so FB or Tweet while you wait.
My hair was long, so I got hair nets.

Before the procedure, they put on this eye goggles to protect your eyes from the lasers. Since there was numbing cream on, from a scale of 1 to 10 in the pain level, I would say the pain level is about a 2. You feel a bit of heat and some poking. However one thing I did not realized is the smoke from your skin tags vaporizing into this air. I actually laughed at this part because it smelled like ikan masin goring (fried salted fish).

The tool used to apply the lasers

In about 10 minutes the whole procedure was over and I was shown what was removed from my neck. Eeewww.
Eeeww indeed

The advice they gave me was that the area where the skin tag was removed will feel like an ulcer, so I should avoid the sun, chlorine and salt water in that area. So if you sweat, you totally wipe the area dry. That’s about it. No bleeding, not weird marks, it’s just gone. Fantastic
What skin tags? There is barely any marks of its existence

I would definitely recommend this to anyone who wants their Skin Tag removed



Give them a call, sms or FB private message and they will cater to all your questions and needs. You can also visit them at www.premier-clinic.com
