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


I’m doing considerably better than my first day with open wounds after seeing the Plastic Surgery doctor.

I couldn’t really get any sleep on that night. I kept waking up every hour due to the sensation of the dripping serum/pus or my hand cramping from cradling my head due to the prone sleeping position I was forced to take on.

However, the next day, which was just yesterday, I became more productive.


I repotted a pot of Dracaena that my undercover boss gave to me after my husband left the house to set up a friend’s computer.

Took out from that pot and repotted them into three separate pots.

It was my first time repotting and I wasn’t sure on how to go about it. So I video called my dad and he guided me through the steps. My mum happened to be beside him and so she chipped in as well.

After which, I decided to reciprocate a gift from a friend and colleague, Matthew.

He drew me a character from Totally Spies back in July. I promised him that I’d draw for him. Since my time was freed up, I decided to try it out.

Obviously, I messed up on the eyes and the length of the face. I shared it with Matt and he’s happy with it so that’s all that matters!

I have been rewatching Archer on Netflix. Just been informed that Season 11 will be ready on 4 December! Can’t wait!

I also started playing its mobile game, Archer: Danger Phone. Am I obsessed with the series?

Well, I really do like the colourful character of Archer. Don’t tell my husband that I fancy him! He’s already jealous of Mesut Özil! Hehe.

When my husband returned, he cooked chicken rendang for me but before we had a chance to dig in, my parents popped by for a surprise visit!

My mum brought a chicken dish for us as well. She said she made curry chicken without using curry powder! I haven’t tasted it yet until now. Secretly hoarding it. Lol.

She bought me a mask extender and whadya know, she bought me a book from Times as well. She said since I had sudden free time, I might enjoy reading the book she chose for me. She said after she read the summary on the cover, she thinks it might be something I’d enjoy.

What do you guys think? Will I enjoy reading this? Only one way to find out!

My husband packed some of his chicken rendang for my pops and I got a Grab to send them home. After that, my husband and I had our dinner and then washed up and hit the sack.

I only woke up once last night, which was an improvement. Woke up panicked when I realised I was sleeping on my left neck! I think it was possible that I was too tired from the lack of sleep and from the activities I engaged in. Hopefully, I can sleep better tonight!

Not quite sure if I should start on my microgreens or read the book my mum gave today. My undercover boss gave me more seeds and soil and a new tray to play around with. My husband will be heading out shortly to assist his sister in moving her things through the night. Not sure if I’ll do one or the other or both.

Decisions, decisions.

Or maybe I’ll even play a computer game since I can have the computer to myself! Muahahaha!

I also need to give some attention to my repotted Dracaena. My undercover boss verified that they’re attacked by fungus as seen from the spots.

I have been advised to get Hydrogen Peroxide on them but I’m forbidden from leaving the house. I told my husband to help me buy it if he somehow had a chance to get it along the way. Which I don’t think is very likely.

My husband wants to bring me to the salon tomorrow to raise the issue and to settle. There’s a pharmacy right across so I might just get it tomorrow.

Truthfully, I’m not looking forward to it at all but I have to grow some balls and face the unpleasantness of having to do so.

If they are willing to settle, I don’t know if I want to opt in for skin grafting to attempt to restore my neck to its original condition. I mean it makes sense that they should cover the cost but at the same time, am I willing to subject myself to more pain and trouble? In the end, it’s still a medical procedure so it definitely comes with its own baggage of medical risks and post-op care.

Feeling a little lost here.
