5 days, 12 hours and 59 minutes

That's how long since my exams ended. Sorry for my late return. I have been rather busy. Ironic, isn't it?
I think the picture paints a good after-examinations summary.

On the day after our final paper, friends and I decided to have a celebratory Korean BBQ dinner. (That was my first time experiencing Korean food, and it would be enough to last me a lifetime.) Unbeknownst to the rest, I was also celebrating my last day of "chowing". (That, of course, failed to be my "last day". You'll come to know why, just read on.)

Later the next day, I went for ballet. Ah, after a 2-week break from ballet, it felt good to be back. Though, class was rather awkward with Ms Lo sharing stories about labour pain. She was sorta hitting out at us for not trying hard enough. She said that the pain we'll endure during ballet will be insignificant to child labour. (Erm...yes, I think I know that.) "My child labour lasted 18 hours." (Okay! TOO MUCH INFORMATION! Thank you very much.)

Wednesday rolled over. I hit the gym, determined to lose the __ kgs I've put on in the last 2 months. And I do plan on going to the gym consistently enough to lose the fats so I can publish my miracle post on how I shed 8kgs. Later that day, my aunts came down from Seremban to visit since it was a public holiday the next day.

Thursday. Happy Deepavali. I stayed home to indulge in my downloaded shows. What a treat. Shows I'm currently downloading:
  • Desperate Housewives (Desperate as ever.)
  • Samantha Who? (HILARIOUS!)
  • Shark (Pretty good.)
  • Nip/Tuck (Addictive.)
  • Back To You (Farny with a capital F.)
  • Private Practice (A spin-off from Grey's, I just have to watch it.)
  • Pushing Daisies (It's fresh.)
  • Gossip Girl (Believe it or not, I haven't got round to watching this yet. Then again, I haven't gotten round to watching Heroes either.)
  • Ugly Betty (The "bettier", the better.)
  • C.S.I. (I hate the fact that Jorja Fox aka Sara Sidle is leaving the show.)
  • Grey's Anatomy (I still can't stand Meredith!)
Hmm...never realised I was downloading 11 shows a week. Nyeh, I'm a TV buff.

Friday, the 9th. No spookiness to that. Another ordinary day at the gym. After gym, that's when my ordinary day turned wild. Allow me to start my story from Thursday night. Mummy and I, accompanied with our P.A., went to OU to shop. I went to Puma and spotted a shoe I like. Fortunately, they had my size. Unfortunately, it was the last pair and one side of the shoe was the display set. So I decided that I'll check the Midvalley outlet first the next day since I'll be going to the gym, while they reserve that last pair for me should the Midvalley outlet not have a brand new pair. After "gyming" that Friday, I popped over to the Puma store only to be disappointed. I headed home to fetch mummy dearest and the P.A. and we went to OU and snagged that last pair up. Ah, finally an alternative to my Converse for which I've been living off this entire year cause it was the only pair of shoes I had for rough wear. Now, I had also been eyeing another pair of shoes for sports wear since my current one is worn out. And since Studio R are one of the participating outlets for some e-coupon sms voucher thingy where you are entitled 15% off for any purchase, it's worth buying. However, this time, they didn't have my size so I requested they called up the outlet in Midvalley to see if they had my size there. But my luck could not have run out at a more impeccable time, they couldn't get through. Then my mum proposed we go there, immediately. By 5 something in the evening, we were on the road on our way to Midvalley. By 6 something, I walked out of Studio R a happy girl. We decided to stick around and check out The Gardens. Nothing spectacular. It's just classy and so unaffordable...for me. We finally decided to head home, but not before dropping by Nose. My mum got herself a pair of shoes. Then, my mum suggested we dropped by Jusco for a bit where our P.A. managed to pick up a pair of peep toe wedge.

I spent 3 hours in the gym that morning, and the lethargy was starting to sink in. But my mum walked over to the lingerie section, where we spent the next hour or so shopping for new lingerie. Then, they didn't have the size in the colour my mum wanted, SOOO we decided to go back to OU and check out the Jusco there. Mummy paid for the stuff and we left the building BUT not before going back to Nose again where my mum picked up another pair of pumps. ('My legs are killing me!' That was what the little voice in my head was screaming at me.) It was 9 something when we reached OU and decided upon paying Nose a visit first before moving on to Jusco. (From Midvalley's outlet to OU. Yes, we are quite mad.) I got myself 2 pairs of high heel peep toe pumps. Well, we finally made it to Jusco and mummy got all she wanted. Hmmm...we all did.

Some mad shopping spree it was that day. I went to 2 malls twice in the same day. From Midvalley to home to OU to Midvalley and back to OU. Geez. I've never felt that tired. Not even when I was having sleepless nights during my examination periods. Swt.

Anyway, my dad just got back from Dubai. And he brought home Swiss chocolate for me. 3 bars! There goes my 'diet'...and my attempt at being anorexic. Blargh.

Now if y'all will excuse me, I really need to catch up on my sleep.

Until more updates...
Ju, out.

online shopping just doesnt really compare to "real" shopping..
