me was in queesnbay

me wanted to buy contact lenses

cos me on my last pair of contact lenses

me go withdraw rm300 frm CIMB atm

$$Ka-ching~~$$

me now spies optical shop just right opposite the bank

this is the plastic bag from the optical shop i spied

me spies the young and pretty optician and asks price for contact lenses

but me feels eyesight very blur recently (many months already in fact)

so me ask miss optician to check my eyes

miss optician check my current glasses and fill in form

then miss optician ask me go sit at small machine to check eyes

me see hot-air-balloon in small machine

then miss optician ask me go sit at big machine

me guai guai sit down and stare at colours, words and numbers

me sit for very very long time

result come out liddis: -525 (SPH) both eyes PLUS -50(CYL) both eyes

last time is -500R/-425L and NO CYL!!!

so ok me get over the shock of the magnitude of the increase

me contemplates buying new glasses in september when go back miri so daddy/mummy pays for it

me agrees to buy contact lenses

miss optician check for my brand of contact lenses

RM69per box, get 3 box free 1 box

(each box got 3 lenses ONLY=6 pairs in 4 boxes)

yes me knows me choice of contact lenses expensive

not only that

but SUPER expensive!

but what to do?

me eyes very picky

last time me wear acuvue (secondary school time)

make both me eyes red red!

red many days

then dun believe wear again, and again

STILL WILL RED!

shit acuvue!

y dun ngam me!

so me resort to Air Optix- the only monthly silicon hydrogel lenses available

and the most bloody expensive lenses ever

now also got daily silicon hydrogel lenses by acuvue

but if liddat even more EXPENSIVE then buying air optix loh

miss optician gimme 4 boxes of air optix -525 lenses

then miss optician tell me got promotion/package or whatever they call it with the company- Air Optix

*Buy 6 boxes from that shop by the end of 31 Dec 2010 and will give customer 2 boxes of Solocare Aqua Solution*

I think guardian/watson’s sell 3 boxes for RM38.88 or something??

so next time must come where re-supply to save RM on solution

miss optician also gimme one pair of trial lenses haha!

so me ‘zap dou’

summore every pair me sure wear >1month de

:S

so this day, RM 207 fly away from me just like that.

i seriously didn’t know how to differenciate loh,

until i read this particular set of notes which illustrates the below:

Cold

Stuffy nose- common

Sneezing- usual

Sore throat- common

Fatigue, weakness- quite mild

Flu

Stuffy nose- SOMETIMES

Sneezing- SOMETIMES

Sore throat- SOMETIMES

Fatigue, weakness- CAN LAST 2 TO 3 WEEKS

*The most characteristic symptom of flu: HIGH FEVER (3-4days), PROMINENT HEADACHE

So, dun simply simply say it’s a flu when u have a runny nose loh… cos it’s most probably not… aaah Malaysians…

The presence of HIV/AIDS in Malaysia is very real.

With a prevalence rate of 0.5%, that means you get a person afflicted with HIV virus for every 200 persons that you know. Now, i have 386 friends on facebook, so theoratically, i should know at least a person or 2 that is afflicted with the virus. Factor in the fact that we, the younger generation, that is simply sunk in an age of promiscuity, which is a valid and proven risk factor of contracting the HIV virus, as well as other STD causing agents.

Take a guess: which state of Malaysia has the highest number of HIV infected persons?

Are you done?  and very sure of your answer?

It’s Kedah.

  • smacks head* isn’t that shocking? And it’s supposed to be a Islamic state right?

(i don’t think you’ll be able to find this info on the net though, a little bird told me about it)

So, having said all that, how many HIV positive people do you think you know?

It’s not a choice for people to contract any disease, however, there ARE actions we can take to prevent diseases to reach an escalating level in the region.

The safest and proven way: Abstinence from sex

Or if you really have to do ‘it’, stay in a monogamous relationship.

I really do feel pity for those who contract the virus from their seemingly innocent spouses. I mean, what precaution can they take right?

Sigh
