Word Diarrhea. Oh, and January 2016 Empties. And Dreams.

I tend to speak without filter, hence my resolution to be more conscious with my words. I tend to type everything that flashes in my mind as well, and then have a hard time organizing the thoughts in a more graceful manner, so you guys won’t think I’m weird. Right now, literally right at this moment when my fingers are furiously typing, there are so many other random thoughts and images running through my head, I’m losing focus. So, when I’m so disoriented like this, I just shut down my computer and go to bed.

*3 days later*

I really did go to bed. I’m at the moment nom-ing on cherries. Mmmmm… love cherries. My mind is not so crazy now, but you know what? When I’m calm, I don’t think of anything much. HAHAHAHA! It’s like a really clean piece of white paper. So, I have no idea what I want to write. Can you now see how strange I am? LOL! I had so much I wanted to write a few days ago, and now, I forgot all of them. So, let’s go to plan B and talk about these empties first.

I think the only thing I haven’t talked about in this blog, is the Klorane dry shampoo. I had a good friend bring this back for me from Singapore, and for a small can like this, it’s quite pricey compared to Batiste. For this size (50ml), it’s converted to about RM50, while you can get Batiste locally for 200ml at the same price range (it’s available online at Hermo). The mini Batiste pictured here is only 30ml. I find that they perform similarly (how different can dry shampoo get?) but Klorane is a tad bit less powdery. The scent is not as strong as Batiste either, but as end results go, both are the same. They get rid of grease effectively, and my hair stays fresh until I wash.

I want to ask you something. Do you remember your dreams?

I know Ashton doesn’t. He’d be crying and screaming from a dream at 2am, and he’d be sleeping soundly an hour later. Ashlyn and Chloe don’t either. They’d come in my room crying, telling me about their nightmare at 3am, but when they wake up the next day, they have forgotten everything, including their “I don’t want to go back to my room!”

I sometimes do though. Some of my dreams are so vivid, I’d wake up sobbing hard. I also sometimes KNOW I’m dreaming, and I’d manipulate my own dream. Isn’t it strange? Usually, and unfortunately, the dreams that I still remember until today, are awful dreams. When I was in my teens, I dreamed that my dad died in my arms. I woke up sobbing and choking and my heart was pounding so fast I couldn’t breathe. I never told anyone about my dream. I interpreted it as my fear of leaving home to pursue my tertiary studies. I’ve always been living at home and it was scary to live all on my own, and to study in a foreign place, starting all over again.

Then, another dream I had was after I got married. I dreamed my husband cheated on me. He’d ignore me, be really mean to me, but he’d be all lovey dovey with other girls. I woke up so pissed, I woke him up and slapped him really hard. After that, I proceeded to cry and call him a heartless bastard. He was barely awake and asked me WTF I was high on. LOL! I had a similar dream later and again, I whacked the shit out of him. He sleepily asked me what he did in my dream. Well, I felt stupid in the morning when he showed me the bruise near his ribs, but I was angry. If he did cheat on me in real life, he’d get much more than a bruise, that’s for sure! I told my mom, and she laughed so hard she cried. Apparently, she had the same dream and she also slapped my dad!! HAHAHAHAHA! I guess it runs in the family. HAHAHAHA!


What about you? Do you remember your dreams? SPILL!! I’d like to read about your dream!

  • OMG, I had that same darn dream too, about my husband cheating on me and I sulked so bad the next day and my husband was wondering WTF is wrong with me! Haha! He knows now and if I am extremely moody and refuses to talk to him then he’s all “what did dream Kev did this time?”. LOL! My little one had a nightmare a week ago and ever since then he refuses to sleep in his crib, we have trouble trying to make him nap in his room too. We’re letting him sleep with us for now because we are heading back to Malaysia for a visit where he will be sleeping with us anyway but once we’re back here, it will be a long process of making him sleep in his room again.

    • Lily

      My daughters sleep in their own room but we didn’t rush it. The baby sleeps with us, in his own bed next to ours, but we’re not going to move him into his own room until a few years later 🙂

  • Hahahaha Lily I love how your brain works! I only remember bad dreams too mostly. I occasionally have end of the world dreams about Nuclear Bombs going off. One that terrified me was I saw the bomb going off through a bathroom window and I ran to my hubby and daughter but didn’t get there in time before we incinerated. I woke up so upset not being able to touch my family before we were zapped. Insane how our brains work when sleeping.

    • Lily

      I also remember dreaming being chased by a ghost, and I’d be running away, heart pounding, wanting to scream, only I couldn’t scream and I was running in the same spot. WTF man. Then I woke up sweating, eyeing the dark room left and right. HAHAHAHA!

      • Tracy, I had a similar dream about the day the world would end. Everyone knew it was the day, so I remember than in my dream, my and my husband just laid down on the bed and looked out of the window at the sun setting and coloring the room and furniture this glowing orange. I remember we weren’t very upset or in a panic, just patiently waiting for the end of the world. Such a weird dream, lol.

  • Hahahaa Lily!! I actually asked my boy recently if he remembers his dreams and he told me flatly no. I thought he simply doesn’t know what dreams are but he told me,”I don’t remember because I’m sleeping right?!” Rofl!!

    Anyway after I graduated, I used to get this recurring dream that I overslept my finals, and only arrive at the exam hall 10min before it ends… Only to realize I was stark naked!!! It’s hilarious but so crazy scary in the dream! It makes no sense either since I never sleep nude!😂😂

    • Lily

      Oh yes, I have these naked dreams before. I wonder why that happens…?!?! Everyone seems to have similar “themes” in their dreams, only in different context. I want to be able to interpret them!

  • Liz

    LOL you crazy person. I love you. Poor Mr. Lily though, ahahahahahaha.

    I used to have more lucid dreams in youth but nowadays it’s hard to remember any dreams at all. I did remember one recently, that I got the job I mentioned the other day! My favourite dream of all time is the one where I was running around rallying people because the town we were in was heading into war. I might do okay come apocalypse.

    • Lily

      I’ll come to you when there’s an apocalypse. I’ll be safe 🙂 And if we’d die, we be zombies together!

  • Oh dear your poor husband getting slapped over a dream hahaha. I don’t remember most of my dreams, I actually I recall once dreaming that Mr H was eating something and wouldnt show and share it with me, so I half woke up and slapped him hehehe. You’re dream had a better reason 🙂

    • Lily

      Yours is better. HAHAHAHA!!! You must have wanted to eat it very badly. LOL!! I’m still laughing 😀

  • HAHAHAHA Lily, you’re hilarious. I remember my dreams most of the time, but not always. I have a lot of dreams where I have magical powers or I can fly, though. And then the one where Tracy was a pro-unicycler, HAHAHAHAHA.

    • Lily

      And why would Tracy be in your dream? HAHAHAHA dreams are so random and so much fun 🙂 It’s cool you have powers… I seem to remember dreams that embarrass me. Like being naked in public >_<
