LOVE IT OR HATE IT?!
LOVE IT OR HATE IT?!
Ok so like the fucking craziest thing happened just now.
I went to meet my lecturer and classmate in school regarding my graduation project, and after the work was done, me and my classmate Nicholas went to have lunch together.
Since we had a lot of time to ourselves after that, somehow Nicholas convinced me that we should go shopping, so we did.
At first, I thought I was only going to accompany him but I ended up buying 10x the amount of items he did, cuz Cotton On has crazily cheap stuff!!! Like $5 for a sequin skirt can die omg.
Kk anyway that’s not all. I wanted to buy baking supplies, we went to the basement of the shopping mall and wanted to look for an electric mixer for my baking, and somehow WE ENDED UP IN THE PET STORE.
We were about to walk right out, when there was a little exhibit going on and they were showing little hamsters in cages!!
And I couldn’t help but notice this particularly cute and SUPER MEGA FREAKING HYPER ACTIVE one. The rest were all lazy blobs and not so cute, but this one was just adorable.
Obviously fawning over it, Nicholas asked the salesgirl to let us have a look at it.
I was like, “siao ah? I say cute only, I never say want to buy!”
And he’s like, “no la, see see only.”
And at first the little rascal was prancing around the cage like mad (her species is the smallest and fastest of all hamsters) so it was hard for the salesgirl to catch hold of her.
Finally she did, and the hamster was just twitching about in her hand, then she asked me if I would like to hold it.
Of course I said no (I’m not good with pets, babies, or anything alive / fragile) but somehow Nicholas persuaded me again, so I did.
And OMG, when I held her in my hands, she was SOOOOOOO docile and when I gave her head nice little comforting strokes, she made
THE CUTEST FACE I HAVE EVER SEEN ON A HAMSTER!!!
Seriously, it went like this: ^________________________^!!!!!
And my heart just melted on the spot.
I just had to have her!!!! She only did the ^__________^ face when I touched her, and I tried playing with the other hamsters but they weren’t even half as cute as her.
All of a sudden I found myself asking for the gender and age of this little hamster, and other questions a potential pet owner would ask…
And FML somehow now I have a bright pink hamster cage sitting at the corner of my room.
………OMG WHAT ARE YOU THINKING, JESSICA!!!!!!!!!
I don’t even know!!!!!!!!! I’m not very good with pets at all. The last time I had hamsters in primary school (given by a friend) they almost died and they were choking and having lao sai coz I fed them jelly (what?! I was 9 years old and no money buy proper food!) and now I’m fucking terrified of mishandling animals.
Every time someone asks me to hold or watch over their puppy, I freak out silently. It’s like, OMFG ARE YOU SURE??? What if this thing explodes in my face?
…..Ok long story cut short, my boyfriend thinks I’m crazy, my brother thinks I’m crazy and I think my mom hates me.
And no, I’m not going to throw the hamster somewhere or abandon it cruelly la, I’m obviously not that kind of person!
I will take good care of it. I’ve already bought treats, toys, bedding, and a shitload of other things la. Sand bath also have wtf. Living more luxuriously than most people I know.
And first, she was VERY pleased with her surroundings because I bought her a fabulous pink cage with plentyyyyy of space (lucky spoilt bitch) so she was running around and exploring, didn’t show any signs of being uncomfortable at all.
In fact, I was surprised at how well she was responding to her new situation.
Super cute wooden mickey dog house for her and a see saw / swing thingy for her to play with!
She was happily eating her sunflower seeds, burrowing around in her fresh pink bedding and then curling up into a ball to sleep…. Then the next moment, she’d be going absolutely crazy running in her hamster ball. Fun life.
SHE LOOKED SO HAPPY!!
…..But being the fucking idiot that I am, I was obviously too fascinated with a new pet and I actually tried to pick her up, only to have her run like MAD and start squeaking like crazy and almost escaped her cage and I got terrified so I left her alone.
I didn’t expect this, because all the while I had my hand inside the cage, sometimes playfully throwing bedding at her or just trying to make some interaction with my fingers, and she didn’t seem to mind at all! Like she even sniffed my fingers a few times and didn’t seem to be afraid, so I took that as an OK sign.
She started to groom herself very ferociously and her behaviour changed completely – from happy hammie to flustered, scared, agitated hammie. Not playing, on “panic” mode instead. Eventually I tried to give her treats to calm this hamster in a frenzy down, but she wouldn’t take any.
Instead of fluffing around in bedding, she retreated to a corner and just didn’t move.
Like seriously STONING, as if it wasn’t even breathing!!!
Obviously I knew something was wrong, so I googled “how to take care of hamsters” and apparently on the first day, you’re NOT supposed to touch them at all. Like it’s a big no no.
FML SO BADLY!!!
I didn’t know it would agitate her so much.
Now she’s just sitting in a corner, obviously very miserable and I feel guilty as hell. It’s been over an hour and she’s still stoning and looking pathetic and somehow I think she hates me now.
I also dunno why, all I did was lightly pick her up (although it was from behind, I imagine now it would’ve been a bit of a surprise)
Way to go Jess, first day and you’ve already terrified your hammie!!!!
Now I’m damn scared to traumatize her even more, so I’m probably gonna leave her alone for a few days until she becomes more comfortable again.
I hope I haven’t fucked things up too badly at the start, oh I hope she becomes a cuddly fluffball soon!!! I mean, she was INCREDIBLY cute and docile at the pet shop when I held her, I didn’t expect her to act so differently when I brought her home.
I know it’s my fault, so pet lovers, give me a break ok!!!
Anyway, I just had to rant cuz I’m damn scared that my new hammie won’t love or trust me and won’t be fun to have at all.
Then WTF am I to do.
Another thing is, because she’s so damn agile, fast and small and I’m scared cuz she might escape anytime!!!!!
Walao I’m feeling stressed already, and all she is is a damn hamster. Imagine if I had a dog. Can die. Maybe dogs would like me better.
Well, now all I’m going to do is take things slow and hopefully in a week, when I try to pick her up she wouldn’t bolt across the cage and hopefully she makes that OMFG CUTE face when I stroke her head again.
I’ve never considered even buying a hamster before, and now I suddenly own one. Great. I guess she makes me feel a little less lonely whenever Sam is not around. I mean, she is THE SWEETEST THING EVER… when she wasn’t terrified of me.
I hope everything turns out fine, otherwise FML, I’d look fucking irresponsible and I’d be stuck with a hammie who hates me!!!
Btw, I do not regret buying her as a pet.
What I regret is my behaviour for being an idiot before and I’m scared of not being able to take care of her properly, cuz I didn’t expect the start to be so rough already!
I know what it’s like to almost cause a hamster’s death (repeat: I was NINE years old!!), so DO NOT WANT it happening again!!!
I hope this effed up start does not affect our future relationship. Like I don’t want her to become scared of me permanently and become aggressive!!!
At first I was SO SURE I could handle a teeny weeny hamster, but this incident frightened not only her, but me as well… Neh neh.
I’m sorry hunnybuns. We started off on the wrong foot, but we’ll be great together in the future… yes? *gulps*
Btw, my air con is super cold and when I go out, I don’t leave my air con on and SG weather is super hot. Is this bad for the hammie? Like, should I leave her outside at night? Cuz my aircon is 16 degrees.
I read online that hammies prefer colder weather, but somebody enlighten me, plz!!!! Any other info about hammies I should know?
(besides what I’ve already mentioned in this post)
PRAY TO GOD I DON’T WAKE UP TO A DEAD / DEPRESSED HAMMIE TOMORROW MORNING. FML WHAT AM I THINKING
Ok last night the stupid hammie wouldn’t stop running around in her ball and I think she’s feeling better. She’s not stoning anymore, I actually saw her bobbing herself up and down on the swing / see saw, so cute!!!!
But when I went nearer (I didn’t try to touch her at all, but my hand was on the cage) she sniffed around, then slowly came nearer and sniffed my finger, then RAN AWAY like really fast. Wtf.
Thinking of leaving her in the living room during the night coz she likes to take seeds up from her feeding down to the second level where the ball is and it makes a huge racket whenever she runs. Also, my super cold air con may not be good for her… -_-
I still can’t believe I got myself a hamster.
Woke up at like 7am cuz the damn hamster kept spinning in the ball non-stop.. didn’t really get a good night’s rest. I don’t know why but it refuses to leave the ball – it shits, pees, sleeps, and runs in the ball!!!! I bought it such a big cage and it only stays in the ball FML.
Now the ball is filthy cuz shit and food and pee flies everywhere when she runs in it, and she’s rolling around in her own filth!!
Is this normal? She only leaves the ball to go get more food from her lower level of the cage. I can’t pick her up and put her downstairs where the proper bedding is, cuz she’s still not used to me yet.
I’m afraid she’s going to get sick or start to smell soon! I can’t possibly shove bedding inside her ball right? It’s already filled with her stored food and shit and all, how is she gonna run in her ball like this?
I’m starting to freak out quite a bit here.
Social Suicide is fun we should laugh at ourselves once in awhile, here’s a hilarious video Sam made with random footage of me he’s taken over the past few months.
As stupid as I look in some of the scenes, I still love the video and how personal + funny you made it baby!
P.S – Dropping that chicken wing was one of the worst mistakes in my life.
Lots of narcissistic shots because I was having a fab hair and make up day!
And yes, I just used the word fab three times in three sentences.
Getting ready to go downstairs for a dip in the pool.
First time wearing this bikini, totally ♥ it!! Anything with gold metal is win.
For the record.. I don’t usually wear make up to go swimming. We just came back home from lunch and I already had make up on.. noticed the weather was exceptionally beautiful so we just changed into our swim suits ^.^
Whenever he doesn’t get a hair cut on time, he always reminds me of dragonball!!!
I love the initial stage of getting into the pool… Where you use your feet to test the water and go like, “zomg it’s so cold!!!” but you get in anyway and it’s superrrr cold and the water’s tingling against your skin as you go in deeper and you can’t stop giggling / shrieking!!!
Then you cling onto your boyfriend for warmth..
Well, that’s how it is for me anyway
I know, I so need a new dye job… I was thinking of either keeping the same colour or going back to my black roots again!
And yes, I have the fattest hands you have ever seen, I know. I always find it ridiculous how unattractive and how unfeminine they are, LOL. They look like they belong to some 10 year old obese corpse.
Sam said the best part about Singapore (besides me of course) is that everyday in Singapore is a swimmable day…
It always feels SO good jumping into a pool on a hot, hot day. Best way to relax and freshen up at the same time.
I wanted to take an “artistic” shot so I told him to have half his head sticking out of the water. Rofl now he just looks dead
Waterproof cams are endless amounts of fun! I know I already have quite a few“swimming-related” posts recently (Aquatica). But you don’t get a waterproof cam for nothing!
Candid! Eheheh we look so silly
For someone who enjoys “swimming” as much as I do, I can’t swim to save my life. I still remember when I was dropped in the middle of the sea in Phuket, Thailand and I had to wait for someone to rescue me. I swear I would’ve drowned -_-
Ok, a barrage of my favouritest pics ever start NOW!!!!
HAHAHAH how cute is the boy in the background!!! So fat, like a pufferfish!
I just want to pick him up and poke his bloated face.
I am unfortunately tan again. Totally got sunburnt like hell at Batam!!! Even though it’s not all that far away from Singapore, I swear the sun there is different man. It roasts you like BBQ pork!!!
♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥
This is Sam’s “over the shoulder sultry look” HAHAHAHA
Best thing about being in the water is how weightless I feel. Almost as if all my troubles are washed away..
Sam’s version of an “artistic” shot. -_-
So act cool!! Why do guys like to act cool in front of the camera, when in real life they’re a big messy goofball?!??
Lolol yes that’s more like what he is in person. CRAZY!
LOL WTF!!!!! Ugly but adorable. Don’t worry I still love you Sam.
Something about swimming always makes everyone tired. And we don’t even swim for real, we just splash around! It’s almost as if trying to breathe while your body is being submerged in water is enough to tire it out.
Last fab swimming pic for this post!!
Lol this is soooo candid, I don’t even remember posing for this!
Sam went back to Melbourne 2 nights ago, and here I am again, all alone in my room blogging about our good times. I miss him terribly!
I apologize for the super slow or non-existent posts whenever he’s around.. I know it’s quite ridiculous, considering he comes down every month which means I’d take a short hiatus every month but I’ve found a solution to fix that!
Next time before he come, I’ll blog more than usual but not publish those posts, to save it for when he’s around and I’m too busy to do anything else, then all I have to do is hit the “Publish” button! Ta-dah! ^.^
Blogging seems to require so much more effort nowadays then it used to. Perhaps I’m just losing the hang of it.
In the past, it used to come naturally.. I’d always know what to say, what to blog about, how to keep readers coming back for me.
But life for me has changed drastically since then, and with that, my priorities have changed as well.
I understand that my posts have become more irregular, possibly more mundane.. But there’s a fine line between blogging for others, and blogging for yourself. I try to stick to the latter, because I hate to become commercialized.
As such, I realized that readers with shorter attention span have lost interest and the main majority of my readers now are the die-hard loyals. So I wanna say thank you to my readers who have supported me throughout these years and all this time…. *sniff*
I will continue being the awesome that I am, and you just continue absorbing my awesomeness, ok.
LOL. You know you love me.
Anyhoo, imma try update more often!!! About what, I have no clue, possibly just about random stuff. Whatever goes.
Till next time, love.
Ok this is probably social suicide, lots of unglamorous moments but IMMA POST IT ANYWAYS cuz its funny as hell!
Sam decided to try his hand at video editing and this is the result:
BAHAHAHAHAHAA EFFING FUNNY SHIT!!!!!!!! I can’t stop laughing whenever I see it.
It’s just a bunch of random candid videos he took of me!
The pictures are supposed to match the lyrics lolol
Ok here’s to explain some of the video:
At 0:14 it says “I’m turning 17!” and it’s an inside joke because when we first met each other, he thought I was 18 and when I told him I was only 16 turning 17 he freaked out majorly… LOL
At 0:22 it shows him being on webcam with me, and it matches the lyrics because he was always there to comfort me whenever I was upset even though we’ve never met each other before
At 0:24 you see me dancing with a god damn killer whale (TILLY!) in my PJs in our hotel room in Orlando HHAAHHAHAAHAHAHAHAHA I didn’t know he was taking a video!!!
At 0:45 you see… BLOATED STOMACH FTW! After we ate at a buffet, we took pics of each others’ stomach to compare roflol I can’t believe he included that pic in the video omg! FYI, his stomach was MUCH bigger than mine okie!!!
At 0:58 you see my “broken smile”, as Maroon 5 sings. A supah ugly pic he took of me during class today WTF. So mean!! T_T
And that concludes his masterpiece. He says he will edit more.
Hopefully this time, it includes SOME flattering images of me…. Is it funny or is it funny?!
Goodbye, social image!!!
