Purchased RAK BESI and started sorting stuff

My husband pissed me off. So I was on a Cleaning Mode. Lucky bastard! By the way, if you’re reading to find out what he said, you’re not going to find it here. Anyway, I get into this really zealous mode of cleaning whenever I get mad at something. The energy has shifted from reckless driving & shouting in the car to Marie Kondo mode. Then, I start throwing everything into the trash or donate everything to the recycling clothes bin. Sometimes I forgot to say thank you to the stuff.

I ordered 4 sets of steel racks from Rak Besi, a small enterprise based in Melaka. The racks were delivered and assembled at my house and upon completion, I transferred the money online to the seller. Total damage was RM675.00.

I rearranged my kids toys in the dark, activity room. I am still finding ways to make it cozy. The husband had a lousy design idea when he renovated the house. So we will have to make do with what we have.

And then I took on the big task of sorting out the porch. The porch which is rarely swept, rarely cleaned yet housing all sorts of junk. Including a big, unused motorcycle! It was damaged in an accident where my husband dislocated his finger a few years. He is having a hard time to let it go. I honestly don’t know what he plans to do with it.

I underestimated the weight of the bike as I soon discovered handling it is no small feat. But because I had so much anger, I had enough strength to maneuver it around as I also, dragged the biggest rack of all from my living room to the porch. I am expecting a 500g weight loss on my scale coming morning with all this heavy lifting!

There’s still a lot of things to be done. I still need to clean the porch floor. Declutter my storage area. Sell my books. Once I get all that sorted out, I can start with my garden project, sell my car and then maybe, plan a holiday.

PKPP will start today till 30th August 2020.

One can’t just go buy a new house whenever you feel like it. A house needs to be maintained and given a fresh makeover every now and again. We should learn how to fix things or at least know how to find someone who can do the fixing for you. As homeowners, we should schedule yearly cleanups of some sort like cuci tangki.

Same thing with having a wife. Some men are lucky they have wives who can maintain themselves and schedule activities to alleviate personal stress and such. Some wives kurang bernasib baik as they don’t have the means to do so. Consequently, some men end up leaving them and look for prettier pastures. Eh, tetiba.. marah sgt neh.. hehe

Memory Lane & Another Learning Curve

It is the long weekend and I’ve got my house chore’s list all ready. It is Ramadhan and I try not to over exert myself. Yesterday, I decluttered my kitchen area. Rearranged my pots, pans and Tupperware. Cleared stuff under the sink. Assassinated a cockroach but I think it is still alive despite pouring lots of peppermints on it. It is still under a used tupperware on the floor for the past 24 hours. On top of the cleaning, I managed to steam Siakap, fry turmeric chicken, made milo jelly and assemble kerabu brokoli for Iftar. Man, my feet hurt like it walked on glass.

Despite the holidays, Mr Husband was at work. First, he had to replace someone who did not turn up for extended hours at the nearest klinik kesihatan. Well, he volunteered to cover. Nak ngelat cuci kipas siling lah tuuuuu. Hmph. That someone better have a good excuse. After he finished for the half day, lo and behold he went to his office plak. Turns out the state has a few new positive cases for Covid-19. So that took some time too. Public Health never rest.

Today I am going to just take it easy. We are having Pizza for Iftar.

Early this morning after Sahur and Fajar prayers, I went through my pictures on social media and did some sorting and filing into my external hard disk. Found an old photo account on Photobucket. It’s not free anymore so I saved those old images and kept it in my drive. Took the chance to stroll down memory lane i.e my old blog LittleHealer.

Blog entries during my student days were emotionally charged and full of passion. I am glad I kept a blog because I honestly do not remember half of the memories I did during medical school and early housemanship. I had no idea I was that fun as an individual back then. Ha ha ha. I was on LittleHealer for a good 4 years and here on Mincisensei for a good 8 years now (and counting!). I suppose I needed a fresh start after the 3 years hiatus from blogging.

But hey.. did I mention that I am now on a fresh learning curve? Starting on Square One as a part time degree student? That part of my life I am documenting on NotaMinci. I think I explained some time ago about a possible Mid-Life Crisis. I guess as medical doctors, you are just itching to study something. LOls.

PKPB is starting tomorrow. May the 4th be with you.
