Annoying Volunteer from some dog shelter

Ok, so I wanted to get dog. And I decided to adopt cause I thought it's the right thing to do since so many dogs are looking for a home and they don't have one.

So I contacted this person that posted an ad on gumtree about 10 weeks old rescue puppies and I just texted her and asked if they are still available. She called me back.

Can I just say that I don't really want to adopt anymore?

She asked me how old I was and I told her that I am 16 and my sister (who is the one who wants the dog) is 14. The moment she heard that, she said, "Are you sure you are ready for a dog. It's a lifetime commitment! And I want to make sure that the dogs go to good homes because I don't want them to be returned to me a few months later because you got bored of it. It's not fair for the dog. It costs a lot of money. Are you sure you are ready? I mean, being 14 and 16 I don't think you are prepared. A visit to the vet can cost a lot and the upkeep costs....blah blah blah"

So she just went on and on about how people are cruel for abusing dogs and how I'm not prepared to have a dog just because I'm 16


Just because I'm 16 doesn't mean I'm immature and irresponsible! Yes I get that you meet a lot of irresponsible adopters who don't want the dog a few months later because they're bored of it and they are usually young but THAT DOESN'T MEAN THAT I'M LIKE THAT.

I have been taught very well by parents to be a responsible person thank you very much.

And because my parents also taught me that I should be polite and respectful of 'elders' (meaning people who in a way hold a higher position than you. In this case, it's adult Vs teenager) hence I did not say anything but listened to her ramble on and on. I shall not disclose who this lady is either because unlike people who judge, I'm not like that.

There's this chinese idiom: 一根竹竿打翻一船人 which is (when directly translated) to use a bamboo stick to 'hit' the all the people on the same boat. Eg. Thinking all teenagers are immature even though you only encountered like one immature teenager your entire life.

Sigh. This is my first time trying to adopt and I get this. Hopefully not all the volunteers are like that.

Almost over

It's 5th November and I have 3 more papers left!!! Physics Paper 1 on friday, Chemistry Paper 1 next tuesday and Biology Paper 1 next thursday!!!!!!


Can't wait.

Also, my sister is getting a pomeranian. Well, our parents agreed and I'm so excited! We're still looking around for a affordable pomeranian though. We were thinking of adopting a dog from the the pet shelters but many are either too old or not hdb approved!

Sigh. *prays* please let a cute and affordable pomeranian that I can adopt appear!

Hello hello

I feel like O levels has been taking a toll on me. I can't believe time has passed by so fast! I'm taking my Os in 3 weeks omg!!

I honestly don't know what to think. Because of that I've been neglecting a lot of things in my online sites like my tumblr and blog..

Not that I'm 'inactive' on tumblr since I've queued so many posts. HAHAHA

Anyways, it's 10:50pm so I'm going to sleep cause it's monday tomorrow and I have school :( ok bye!

Been busy with tumblr

So recently I decided to get back into tumblr. I've started queueing lots of posts, and even create another tumblr just for sims stuff.

I wanted to consistently post stuff, but don't want to be spending so much time, so I figured tumblr is the next best thing cause I can always post some pictures every now and then, so I don't have to spend so much time as I do if I blog them all out since blogging does take up a lot of time.

So yeah, I'll be more active on my tumblr more than anything else, so if you want more frequent updates you can check out my tumblr. But, I'm not posting any personal stuff there. I still feel more comfortable blogging the whole story out since my tumblrs are just there for me to reblog/post pictures of nails & sims.

So yup :D

I feel like I've been really lazy these few days even though it's a school holiday, I really need to starting acting like I'm having my O levels soon.

Sims dedicated blog

I was looking through my archives for this blog and realized that I do not want my blog to be a Sims 3 blog. Nono, that would mean that I need to delete my old blog posts or export it to another blog like I've done to my previous blog posts (that are not on this blog anymore).

So I've decided that I'm going to have another blog that is dedicated to my creations or solutions that I've found for any glitches on Sims 3 (or Sims 4 maybe, if I get my hands on it!). This is the link to my sims 3 blog:

Anyway, I've posted my Taylor Swift inspired sim, but please be nice! It's my first try...

Creating Taylor Swift on Sims

I'm so happy! I just created Taylor Swift on the Sims 3, although I don't think it looks like her, I still feel happy because it's a big step for me - considering that I've never ever created sims to look like anyone in real life.

Soooo.. I have no pictures because I recorded the entire process of me creating it on the Sims 3, and I kept pausing because I had to google for images of her and etc. I'm so excited!!!

Should I post it on the Sims 3 Exchange?

But other people there have such nice sims and such awesome skills. I can't compare :(

Make sims or build houses.

Or create worlds?

Or learn to code?

I love coding, I do. But I'm just too lazy hahahah, especially because I'm so busy nowadays with studies and exams..

Sad life.

I've uploaded Taylor Swift inspired sim here.

Weird Blog

I feel like my blog is really messed up. Maybe it's because I used to edit the html of the template too much, now it's just weird.

Should I just reset everything? But my hard work will be gone :( sighhh

But now it's as if nothing is working. Example, the codes are all messed up, addthis button doesn't work. Number of comments is not shown for some posts..

What should I do :(

Disgusting Dominos

Oh God, I don't know why I'm always experiencing bad service. I'm not asking much, am I? I'm just asking for the company to do what they promised.


So this is what happened. I ordered at 6:13pm. Then on the website it says that they are busy, so they can only start preparing the pizza etc an hour later. Ok, fine, I understand..

So I waited.

And waited.

And waited.

It's 9:13pm. Still no pizza.

Do I have the right to be mad? I believe so.

Bonus Points Worldwide Now!!

Omg I'm so excited! I logged into the Sims 3 website and visited the store and I realised that they give out bonus points to non-Americans!

Sims 3 (Did not get my bonus simpoints)

I have decided that every time I encounter a problem with EA/Origin/anything related to Sims, and finally found a solution to it, I will post it on my blog so that I can help others too.

I should probably create a new blog that's call the Sims or something but I'm too lazy! Hehehe.

So, anyway, I had a problem trying to get the bonus simpoints that you're supposed to get if you buy the base game and/or World Adventures - 1000 simpoints EACH.

And I never knew about it. Sigh... My cousin gifted me with the Sims 3 base game and I had registered it with Origin. And World Adventures was bought via Origin. I didn't get the chance to register it on the Sims 3 Store, so I couldn't get the 1000 simpoints. The button to redeem the points was not there.

Soooo... If you bought the Sims 3 base game and/or World Adventures via Origin, or redeemed the game via Origin, read on.

Gone for too long

Today, I finally went back to checking the stuff I usually checked. Eg, the blogs I usually check, the facebook pages and the youtube accounts.

All of a sudden I realized that I have been so busy with school life that I forgot to check all of those stuff. I feel like I'm really outdated.

Nightmare Service

I opened an online banking account with Maybank on tuesday. I thought everything was going well, and I went home happily with my new debit card. But then something horrible happened. I thought it was just a small issue that can be solved easily. But no! It took two days and many calls to solve this issue. Guess what happened?

They didn't record my mobile number down.

And because of this, I wasn't able to access my online banking! I could activate it but I can't access it because I don't have the security token, neither was I able to receive the SMS OTP. Then I called their customer service to ask them to record my mobile number down and use SMS as my 2FA.

First call: I don't know her name. But it was a female who picked up. Not super helpful, but still alright. Acceptable service. She helped me request for a security token and did not help me set SMS as my 2FA. Confused me a lot.

Second call: Very good service. Her name's May, I believe. It might not be spelled that way, but it's pronounced that way. She helped me by leading me to the eServices form, and told me what to do.

So I filled up the eServices form, and I put it in an envelope, and everything. I was about to leave the house to send it out when my mother received a call from the person that helped us open the account. Nicole. She asked us to go down to the branch to settle everything.

So we did, on wednesday. We went there, gave out mobile number, asked her to set my mode of 2FA as SMS, and we left, thinking everything was done.

I went home, I tried to login, but I can't. It gave me the message:

Dear Customer

You have not activated your New Security Token. Please click here to activate it now.

Click here to know more about the New Security Token.

So I thought, maybe she have not sent my form in yet, maybe I need to wait 1 more day.

So on thursday, my mother asked me about my online banking and told me to try signing in. And I did. It gave me the same message again. So I called their customer service line.

Third call: Horrible! Her name is Vicky/Vivi (something like that). She wasn't very clear. She talked really fast, didn't listen to me and just went on and on. She didn't even bother listening to my full story and just assumed what I wanted. So I never got a chance to explain myself. I told her I wanted to use SMS as my 2FA, know what she told me? She said that I've already activated my account, so the SMS OTP is of no use to me. Like what? You mean I don't have to sign in anymore? She said I can only use the security token to sign in, not SMS. The SMS OTP is only used to help me activate my account.

After the call ended, I went online to search, to understand more about this SMS OTP and whether Maybank's one works the same way as DBS/POSB's. And it does! This is what it says on the website:

  1. If I have selected SMS as my mode of 2FA, when can I start using it?

    Upon registration, you will receive an SMS sent to your registered mobile phone number as a confirmation. Thereafter, you may login to any time and the One-Time Password (OTP) will be sent via SMS automatically for login.
    For sensitive online transactions like 3rd party Funds Transfer, the OTP will be sent via SMS upon request.
  2. How does the 2FA SMS work?

    Every time you login to as well as when you perform certain sensitive online transactions, you will receive an OTP sent via SMS to your registered mobile phone number automatically or as requested.
    The login process for 2FA SMS users is as follows:
    • Enter your Username and Password
    • You will be prompted to enter an OTP to complete the login process. Simply wait for the OTP to be sent via SMS to your registered mobile phone number. Once you receive it, enter the OTP and click "Confirm" to proceed.

So, doesn't that mean that I need the SMS 2FA to login EVERYTIME? I really don't understand why that lady on the line said that to me.

So I called again.

Fourth call: His name is Dillion/Dylan (don't know how to spell, but pronounced that way). He was really nice. He listened to me explain the whole story, and told me that he can help me reset my account, so that I can just use 'First Time Login' all over again. He explained the whole process to me, gave me correct instructions. He told me that I just need to login 30 minutes later and it should be fine.


I don't really think it was his fault, I think he just forgot to set my mode of 2FA as SMS? Because when he was explaining the process to me, he did mention that I was supposed to receive the 8 digit code to login via SMS. But I didn't.

So I called again.

Fifth call: This lady's name is Jonalyn. (definitely spelled this way, because my mother asked her for the spelling) She was really nice. When I called in, I asked for Dillion/Dylan. But he was out for lunch. So this poor lady had to help to fix the problem that the previous staff caused. She was really nice, she listened to my whole story and told me that she would call Choa Chu Kang Branch to ask if they have already sent in the form to set my mode of 2FA as SMS etc etc. And that she would call me back as soon as possible once she found out what is going on. And she did call me back around dinner time.

My father was around when I picked up her call and he asked me turn on loud speaker. He heard the whole conversation and told Jonalyn to get everything done by Monday so that I can use online banking as soon as possible.

I don't know if it will be solved soon. I hope so, otherwise I might just cancel the account because honestly? The interest rate isn't as attractive as it was anymore, now that I've been exposed to their nightmare service. 

Sigh. I never knew opening an online banking account can be so difficult. It wasn't that difficult with POSB, I just applied for online banking by filling up the form online and just sent it in (it was an eform, I didn't even have to print it out or send it via post). Then the token was delivered within 2-3 days.

Why can't Maybank provide that kind of service too? There's a chinese saying, 一分钱,一分货. I guess it is true. If I want them to give me a higher interest, I have to accept their horrible nightmare service. If I want good service, I need to compromise by accepting lower interest rates.

I think I prefer good service, because that would mean that everything would be more efficient. Who knows, it might take 10,000 years just to transfer $5 to another account using my Maybank account.

I know, I know, I am exaggerating. I just want to show how ridiculous everything is. Anyway, I will update when the issue is solved or if I decided to close my account.

P.S. I refuse to pay the penalty fee if I want to close my account. They have no right to ask for a penalty fee if they can't even provide good basic service. Hmph.

The lady, Jonalyn, has helped me settle this issue.. Thank God! I received the token that was sent to me via registered mail today (27 June) and also received an SMS from Maybank telling me that I am now able to login to the online banking using SMS. Yeah! I have also tried login in and it works!

Bell Pepper, Tomato and Cucumber Plants & Garden updates!

My side of the garden

Hello! I'm back here with an update on my garden! As you can see from the picture above, that's my side of the garden at my dad's office..

I went to my dad's office today to plant two different types of cucumbers and two types of bell peppers - yellow and red/green.. I also moved the tomatoes into the white tray.. It fit about 16 seedlings.. Hopefully I don't have to shift them anymore. But I read up some where that I'm supposed to leave at least 1.5ft between each one, oops!

The tomato seedlings in a tray.

Tomato Seedlings

I even moved one of the seedlings over to this beautiful pot that I bought from daiso.. It's cheap, but it has a very clean and modern look.. As you can see in the picture below, I added some compost..

Solo tomato seedling with compost around it

I planted some bell peppers in some recycled bottles and  containers..

Bell Peppers Day 1!

I told my dad to help me label while I was gardening cause his hands are clean.. I told him, "Label the bell peppers one as BP". And I only realised afterwards that he misheard me.. Haha look what he wrote!

Here are the other cucumbers that I planted...

Cucumber (short)

Long Cucumber

Remember that cucumber plant from weeks ago? We moved it to a bigger pot and it has been growing really well! I'm really excited.. Although I'm really sad cause I just found out that cucumbers are pollinated by bees and I really hate bees...

Cucumber Plant
It's really interesting how the leaves have different shapes.. And the crumpled leave actually developed before the butterfly-like leave, but it didn't open.. Weird..

My roses bloomed too! Look:

Sorry I was too lazy to crop/edit any of the photos :(

That's all for today!

Anddddd... I updated my nail tumblr a few days ago and tried to take some pictures with my DSLR.. I don't know why I never thought of this earlier, but anyway, the pictures look awesome! Although I had a hard time trying to balance the camera with one hand and posing with the nail polish bottle with my other hand.. HAHAHAH I had so much fun adjusting the settings..

Ok bye!

My rose plant at home

I bought a pot of rose plant from a local garden sometime back.. After all the flowers died, there was no more flowers anymore, and there seemed to be no new ones growing :(

I was so scared my rose plant was gonna die. So one day, i thought, why not just trim my rose plant? Make it look nicer, and have a shape.. I mean, if it dies then so be it, there are no flowers anyway..

So I trimed it. And guess what?

It grew flowers!!! Like a few weeks later :D< Look:

The camera couldn't focus so i had to use my ugly and rough hands to help it focus.. It's still quite blur though :(

Ok, bye!

Blogging again

I say this all the time, but I'm really going to try this time.

I'm going to try to get back to blogging. I didn't blog for practically the entire year and I feel like I've lost a part of myself. My blog used to be where I expressed my thoughts and feelings without caring about what others think, so that I don't have to keep everything bottled up inside.

But after some time, I realized I was blogging for others and began to lose interest in blogging. Then everything went weird. I wasn't myself anymore. I became nicer and happier but honestly? I prefer being alone and emo sometimes. I really missed it when all I had to do was be myself.

A lot of things happened these two years. I became the Vice-Chairperson of my CCA (SmartsMedia Club) and that's when everything started to become different. I learnt to think before I speak, and be nicer and more sensitive to other people's feelings. At the same time I've also learnt that being a leader doesn't always mean that everyone will like you and admire you. There are people who will hate you for what you're doing and gossip about you, spread rumors about you behind your back.

Together with a bunch of friends, we were 'promoted' and became a leader in our CCA, class and other stuff etc. It's a really great experience and we had many opportunities to lead, and were constantly forced to step out of our comfort zone. And because of this, our priorities changed, and people changed.

Not that I regret being given the opportunity. I loved it. But sometimes I wonder what would happen if my friends and I were not leaders, would our friendship remain the same?

I am glad that I was not one of those people that became worser. In fact, I'm really proud that I'm a better person now. I'm being told that I'm more open and friendly to others. I also realized that I'm no longer scared to try new things and I can speak to an audience without stuttering. In fact, I can speak firmly and loudly. I'm super proud of myself for that.

Do I regret this? Nope. I love it.

I just miss being myself again. Which is why I'm going back to blogging, listening to classical music, reading books, and doing devotion.

Even though this year is an important year because I'm taking my O levels. But whatever. I need myself back, then I can excel.

Growing tomato plants!

About a few days ago, i went to my dad's office to grow some tomato plants. I brought some cherry tomatoes with me and some plastic bottles to plant them in.. A few days later

We also planted some cucumber plants using the seeds that we bought from a local garden.


I'm so excited for them to grow bigger! I've just moved them into a plastic bottle that my dad cut so it's like a tray..

I'm also growing some bell peppers..

(The one at the top with a white cap has bell pepper seeds, fresh from bell peppers. The one with a blue cap has honey tomatoes..)

I can't wait!!

Thursday, February 6, 2014


Today, I realized something very important. Actually, no. I realized this a long time ago. I just never realized how important this was.

I'm someone very direct. When I dislike you, I won't help you. Yes, if you asked me a question, I will answer you. That's just me being polite. But if you asked me to help you, I won't - because I don't want to give you the wrong message that I'm okay with you when I'm not. To me, that's the difference between being POLITE and FAKE.

But what I don't understand about is those people who don't like you, but still act like they're your best friend. I can never understand. I know, some people are just really nice. They don't know how to let someone else know that they don't like them. Understood. For those people, I don't blame them for being more polite to the person they don't like.

What I don't understand about is those people who don't like you, and are supposedly too 'nice' to let you know that he/she doesn't like you, but still initiate a random conversation with you, or ask you if you would like to hang out, go home together, have recesses/lunch break together etc. And during the recess/lunch break/bus ride home etc, they will talk to you like they're your best friend.

I mean, if you don't like someone, and supposedly want to let the person know that you don't like them, but you're too 'nice' to say it, would you still initiate an opportunity to be around that person? Or would you try to avoid the person as much as possible?

I think you understand what I'm getting at.

Those people, aren't 'too nice', neither are they being polite.

They're FAKE.

And there's also those type of people who never admits that they're wrong. Or those who knows that they are wrong, but still try to make it seem as if they're right. Or those who apologize immediately for everything they do because they didn't mean it. Or worse, those who don't even think that they're wrong.

Here's a scenario:
Someone posted something about you online. They mentioned many untrue things about you on facebook for everyone to see. You also know that that person doesn't lock her account, so EVERYONE can see what she wrote. And that person, just happened to joke around with you yesterday. When you saw the post, you did not confront her, hoping that she would stop. But she didn't. Instead, she even mentioned your full name and identity (eg, their class monitress, cca chairman etc). So you told a mutual friend about it, not knowing what to do. That mutual friend spoke to the person abt the issue and asked her to apologize.

Here's what the three types of people would do.

Those who refuse to admit that they're wrong: They won't apologize. But will eventually give you an insincere apology only because they don't want you to report the incident to your teacher.

Those who knows that they're wrong, but try to make it seem as if they're not: They'll act like everything's fine. They won't apologize, and continue to talk to you like the incident never happened. And just when you think you can forget about it and forgive her, she tells the teacher that you did something to her, hence why she posted such nasty stuff about you.

Those who apologize immediately for everything they do because they didn't mean it: Simple. She apologizes again and again, you accept her apology, and tada! You're best friends again.

Those who don't even think that they're wrong: They won't apologize. Instead, they confront you, calling you nasty names to your face, and criticize you for many things. They keep insisting that you are wrong, and won't even care if the matter is brought up to someone with a higher authority. In fact, they want the matter to be brought up to someone with a higher authority, so that they can 'prove their innocence'.

See the difference? So who's the worst?

I say, the ones who are FAKE, and apologize immediately for everything because they 'don't mean it'. Why? Because they'll always be your friend. They'll always be there, backstabbing you, gossiping about you, telling everyone your not-so-secret-anymore secrets. But you'll never know, because you think they're your best friend.

But truth is, they're scarier than your mentally sick enemy who wants to kill you.
