Stop Press! Puss' back blogging!


OK, yes. I have been a lazy bum lately...

I've been very poor at blogging entries this month, I know. I have no excuses. Quite frankly, I don't know what to blog about these days. The only thing I am excited about is my makeup, but there are way too many beauty blogs and I really don't want to add to that statistics. Plus, I do believe there's more to my life than makeup!!

I thought of opening up another blog, strictly on makeup and all things beauty. No FOTD's or EOTD's, just reviews on the many products I've used. But then I thought, I can't even maintain one, let alone to have two blogs, so that idea was thrown out. I can still write about makeup products here, as I have a tag especially for that called: beauty binge. So I guess that'll work. But I do want to write about other things besides makeup. The travelling journals I wrote are quite fun, though that took forever to finish! I write about my cats. They're always a joy to write about, but this blog is also for personal consumption so I do want to touch on a variety of things happening in my life.

Next month, April, makes this blog one year old. And for a year old blog I don't think I have made it into anything spectacular. Like I said, the main purpose of this blog is for me, moving on from diaries when I was a teenager. But I do want to write more often, and right now, the one thing that I can consistently write about is makeup.

However, this blog will continue to touch on everything and anything: beauty, food, cats, family, travels, friends etc. Whatever makes my life, gets a mention in this blog, just how it was meant to be a year ago.

On a different note, I've resurrected the Mac again. It was shoved in one corner because the power adapter died and it took forever for Machines at The Gardens to order a new one. They were supposed to call, but 3 months later, nothing. So I went to see them and paid RM349 for a new power adapter. Now it's back in business, yet again. The HP is getting a rest, after serving me faithfully for that whole time. I think the HP is going to quit on me soon. I've been using it heavily lately, and sometimes I was sure it was huffing and puffing. So thank God I got off my ass to get the Mac working again.

Tell you what, come April in a few days, I'll do a summary on all the things that have been happening this past year. Yeah, that's an idea!

So 'till then..

It's not easy being a cat!!

Mom made a comment a couple of days ago after she arrived here from PD. Mok's tail is smaller!!


I took a closer look. How could I have missed that?

Truth is, the tail hasn't gotten any smaller in size, it's just not as fury anymore. Mok has a heavy coat, and his tail looked like a feather duster. This time, it looked scrawny, and we feared our beloved feline has contracted some kind of skin disease.

Mok doing his 'rounds'

Mom took Mok to the vet, and came back tickled. The poor boy is stressed! Which is why he has been shedding a lot of fur! A random male cat has recently been seen hanging out at our garden a lot. Didn't seem to bother Mok, he'd just sit and look. That apparently, bothered him, because as we all know, cats are extremely territorial. The only difference is, Mok's a castrated male, so he doesn't mark his territory. But he is still very territorial, and the garden is his domain. So having some random male cat in his domain has caused him to shed some fur!

I guess life in general, for anybody is not easy huh! Here we were, thinking, Mok's life is pretty much cut out for him, and now we know he has stresses in his life too.

It's stressful being a cat!

That poor boy!

But we still love him dearly!

He's turning 13 this July, and Raisa is a gorgeous 18 year-old! That's like over 100 years old in human life. And tomorrow, I'm taking Raisa to the vet to get that gross growth on her foot checked out.

Sorry Mok, I guess it's not easy being a cat after all!! But we got your back always baby!
