I just checked my sister's blog and look what I found! Super cute pictures of one of the resident hamsters!
Isn't she cute? On the left is a picture of her snacking on a piece of cabbage upside down (I wonder how she does that without getting indigestion); and on the right you see her happily snoozing away after her meal. Amazing how the exercise wheel has evolved into a resting/napping place. How lazy. Anyway, her name is Tiger Lily, and well, yes, she isn't the most graceful thing on earth (read the sister's post on it for further elaboration) but she's super adorable! Well, apart from the fact that she's kinda gross and smelly at times, that is...
(This is seriously one of the most well-groomed hamsters I've ever kept. NOT.)
That aside, school has finally gotten to me and my brains. I've officially turned into a shopping nerd - look, I've put my CAT skills into good use and now I'm permanently using Excel sheets to calculate all my online shopping and spreeing costs:
I've also constructed a currency conversion to aid me in my online purchases - USD, pounds, HKD, NT, Yuan, blah blah blah all converted to the Sing dollar to save the hassle of having to find a calculator each time I try to calculate my purchases.
Meanwhile, I've also been shopping lots! Not for me - well, not exactly, at least, but rather, I've been walking around trying to find birthday presents for a certain very special somebody *cough*. What's really bad is that I end up buying way too much for myself as well, which really doesn't help the state of my bank account anyway. So far in the week: 2 pairs of (very microscopic) black shorts, 3 pairs of earrings, 1 necklace, 1 pair of pants, 1 belt, 3 tops, 1 cute underwear and 1 pair of wedges. All for myself.
All that shopping + the presents = OMG I need to stop shopping soon because I have no more money! :(
