Lockdown Day #52 : Vaccination Completed!

Today I completed my second dose of vaccine. Yay! I arrived at the vaccination center 40 minutes before time and everything went smoothly.

This time there were a few big signs that said NO VIDEO/NO PHOTO. Well, I already took photos during the first appointment.

There has been many videos circulating showing people allegedly not being given their shots. I watched a video that showed the person being injected but the plunger of the syringe was not pressed. This is something very serious.

So today, I braved myself to look at the needle. The nurse who attended to me was very warm and friendly. She showed me the syringe which was filled with vaccine and as she injected me (I felt slight pain), she narrated what she was doing. The whole time I watched and I am assured that I received the vaccine. 

There was a photo booth outside and I lined up to take a picture. Some people ahead of me just took a selfie while others engaged the assistance of fellow vaccinees to take a photo for them. Since I did not want anybody touching my phone, I took a selfie. I suck at selfies because that's something I hardly do.

So.


Aiyah..can lah, hor?

When I came home, I was ravenous. So I ate yesterday's leftovers with gusto. I have also seen videos of people claiming that they developed magnetic properties and spoons can stick to their arm.

When my partner showed me those videos, I told him that is nonsense and bullshit. Then I read that Rose experienced it and has a photo to prove. I mean, Rose is not the nonsensical type and I believe her. So in spite of myself (hah..hah..) I tried sticking a spoon to my arm and nope, no magnet wahahahaha!!!

Right now I am feeling very tired like I am going to get sick. I also feel cold (which is unusual because I always complain it is hot) and my head is slightly heavy. Maybe a fever is looming. But never mind. I will take it in my stride. I'll just sleep earlier tonight.


Yesterday, after taking photos of flowers, I decided to snap some pics of Belle Belle since I have never captured her on my DSLR.


It is not easy to take pictures of cats (or any animal) since you can't direct them. You could distract them if you have an assistant but since I was alone, I could not do that.


Belle Belle won't look into the camera. 


At best, she just gave me a side eye.


Girl got curious and wanted a piece of the action.


But she jual mahal lah


Turning her head after just one shot.


Every time I pointed the camera at her, she would get up and walk. Haiz...


Then she and Belle Belle faced off opposite each other.


Like wanna fight like that.


Then Belle Belle did a catwalk, strutting fiercely and confidently towards me.


After which she decided to get back on her favorite spot for a snooze.


She gave me this look.


OK, I gotta go and eat. This vaccine is making me hungry!

  1. Oh? Looks like you are not magnetic, eh? LOL!!! Yes, I did hear of people getting hungry all the time and eating a lot. It seemed that our friend, Reanaclaire, did not fare too too well after the vaccination - I hope she's fully recovered, And is all right now.

  4. You gave your followers/readers a glimmer of hope that they can finally see your face only to realise that you really suck at selfies? Haha! At least you don't suck 100%...can still see your eyes...lol! :D Congrats for completing your vaccination. I have zero reaction for both doses.

    Well, taking snapshots of animals isn't the easiest thing to do I have to admit. To get your girls to look at you, you have to wave your hand or something (or snap your fingers) above your head to get their attention to look your direction and quickly snap the photo before they turn away (or use one hand only to operate your phone camera). Try this next time to see if you have better luck! ;)

    1. Thank you! You are so lucky that you did not experience any side effects. It really sucks to be sick after the vaccination. LOL!

      It is quite hard to handle the DSLR with one hand as it is much heavier that the phone. I'll try that with the phone next time.

    1. Your more severe reaction might mean that your immune system is being activated. Do rest well before and after your second vaccination. I hope all goes well for you!

  8. I was alone during my 1st dose and I didn't want stranger to touch my phone too (LOL), so I didn't take any photo. :(

  9. Today it is reported that KJ said Malaysians Can Now Record Their Vaccination Process To Avoid ‘Empty Syringe’ Incidents. In the first place videos and photos should be allowed if there is nothing to hide. Mine 2nd jab will be on Monday. It will be a drive through at the stadium. Some of my friends also experience very good appetite for the first few days after their jab. I hope I will have it easy after the 2nd jab.

    1. Exactly! I wonder why they did not allow during my second visit. All the best for your 2nd jab. I am still eating very well until today LOL!

  10. We have seen all your beautiful full faces of photos during school days. You would still look the same today. Showing half coconut in your selfie won't stop our imaginations. Good that you have taken 2 jabs and would survive for sure. I trust karma decides over all the people to live or to get eliminated.

    I am impressed with the colours and contrast aperture settings that you took! Beautiful cats even though they didn't look because they are animals lah. Cannot say cheese one. LOLOL
