Yesterday I was quite frustrated. My mood was no good until my face looked like ham choy. No offense to my auntie's homemade ham choy which I am sure is gorgeous.
I got three calls, all work related (I know that lockdown is not a vacation, but still) and one call from EPF. I was in the midst of working on some applications for my clients and all of a sudden I felt so sien.
I actually dislike working from home. There are limitations for example like when I need to refer to physical files. Besides I prefer a separation between home (where everything should be chill and lovely) and office (where there is stress which I can leave behind when I go home).
Of course under current circumstances, it cannot be helped especially under lockdown. After I settled what I had to settle, I still had to wait for my delivery which did not arrive until 6:30pm.
It did not help that my two cats were misbehaving. They turned up their noses when I fed them Whiskas tuna. Girl used to love this but now she is giving me diva behavior.
Belle who usually wolfs down her food, ate only half and made for the door. Girl whined and also wanted to go outside. They don't usually go out after dinner but there they were, in solidarity, waiting at the door, demanding to be let outside.
Next thing I know, DING DONG! Ah. That must be the delivery man. So I opened the door and the two kiddos bolted. Tsk!
I requested the guy to put the boxes outside the gate. When he caught sight of Belle Belle, he asked "Dia punya ke?" (the packages are for her?). "Ya, semua dia punya" (yes, it's all hers) and the guy chuckled.
After I took the goods inside, I had to carry Belle Belle back into the house and chuck her into her cage. Then I went outside again and carried Girl inside. Haiz.......
There you go. Because I let them have a taste of Sheba and Fancy Feast, they now refuse Whiskas. And mind you, within the two brands, they also have their likes and dislikes.
Girl used to love this a lot. But this morning she was like, meh. Belle Belle at least ate 3/4 of her portion.
But never fear, greedy Belle Belle came back (as usual) to sapu Girl's portion (after finishing what she left behind in her own bowl first).
I could not get their favorite flavors, so I compromised. When they are hungry, they have no choice but to eat. Yup, even the Whiskas they eventually ate.
I also bought kibble which thankfully, they were agreeable to this one. I used to give them Royal Canin (they love it) which has proven to be too expensive in the long run.
This was my dinner after settling the cat food. Steamed bittergourd with tofu and meat. Simple and good.
I was still feeling down so I went to the freezer to take something out before settling on the sofa for a spot of Narcos Mexico (I finished Narcos, the Colombian one and it was so darn good even after second viewing).
Now back to my nyum nyum. Nibbling chocolate while watching the telly is very bad habit but so good for the soul.
My bliss did not last very long because Belle Belle started making loud noises and clawing at her cage. Then it occurred to me that she had not used her litter box the whole day. So I let her out.
And she did this. (WARNING. Explicit photo)
My day was already bad. And I had to deal with this. In the midst of Narcos Mexico. Sometimes I wished I didn't have kids. Anyway.
Today is a better day. The cat litter that I ordered arrived.
Then my Medklinn air sterilizer which I sent for repair was returned with no charges although I failed to register the warranty. For that, I am truly grateful.
After installing this unit (more than a month ago) I sleep so much better because I no longer wake up with blocked nose/runny nose and at the office (I installed one there too), I don't get sneezing fits/runny nose (my nose is very sensitive to dust and stuff). On no, I am not sponsored, just sharing good things only.
Today's breakfast after my morning walk - fried egg, baked beans and Rainbow Sprouted Bread (which I kept in the freezer and defrosted). So good!
