Messy blog? Macam tempat kucing merempat is it? I think so too. Hang tunggu la, kita dok cari the best template lagi la. In the mean time…

My Chom had the flu yesterday, so dapat MC and I rushed over from Subang to take care of her. Rushing from Subang meant trying to get to her place in under 2 hours which I didn’t. RapidKL as usual late, and then KTM Komuter pulak slow macam siut. When I finally got to Angkasapuri stop, Chom was already waiting for me (after her visit to the clinic).
