In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

Today, I took MC. I hated the feeling so much; of wanting to throw up yet nothing is coming out and it just feels like my body is depleted of all energy. Doesn’t help that the diarrhea kicked in. Even my husband got it but it seems like I got the worse end of the poisonous gas building inside me that got me horribly nauseous. I don’t feel nauseous now after one nausea pill and three solid hours of sleep. But I still feel achy all over and my stomach cramps are still pretty bad. But I’ll just drag myself to work tomorrow. It just sucks la being sick. No one enjoys being sick.

In a bid to feel less sucky about everything in life, I decided to buy my own pack of Sakura Pigma Micron pens. I bought a set previously for my husband when he was warded at the hospital so that he could busy himself with drawing. It’s probably a foolish move of me to buy a similar pack. His is the Manga pack so he has the 005, 01, 05, 08, Black Brush Pen, and White Gel Pen. When I compared mine to his, I pretty much have most of those except the White Gel Pen. Instead, I have the 03 pen. I’m no pro-doodler so I probably won’t be able to discern the differences among the pens. However, I realised that if I were to use the pens a lot, it probably is a good investment to have more. Additionally, I bought the Sakura Pigma Brush Pens. I was conflicted between the Sakura Koi Brush Pens and the Pigma ones but I eventually decided on the Pigma ones since I wasn’t going to do any watercolour styles in my bullet journal. But I might just go back to get it while it is still on sale. Now I regret not getting the pack. HAHAHAHA! Nah, I’ll give it a miss until I’m more in tuned with brush lettering. It’s more of Eleena’s forte than mine.

I have also ordered two A5 Dotted Leatherette Notebooks from Winzige.sg via Shopee, which will be shipped on 3 January 2019. Yeah, I felt foolish about this decision too, especially in getting two instead of one since I have no idea if the papers are thick enough for my Pigma inks. Plus, we all know how lousy my level of commitment is. Well, I bought two because I didn’t want to go through the hassle of having to purchase it again should I run out of pages. Additionally, the notebook is on sale until end of the month. It costs just $8.90 each, which you will agree, is relatively inexpensive compared to the atas notebooks carried by the brick and mortar stores. Wow, I just combined a commomly used Singlish term and an English term rarely used by Singaporeans in one sentence. HAHAHAHA!

I hope I can recover quickly and feel amazing again.

Stay amazing, friends.

And Allah is Al-Fattah, The Supreme Solver. – MM
