wash me

Again you see, because I am so bored now, I am posting another blog after the one that i've just posted less than 20 minutes ago...

anyway, thank God that my dear clothes washer machine has just finished doing my 2nd load of laundry today (first was the whites and then the coloured) which gave me some more things to do which was to transfer the washed loads to the dryer which is just right above it.. I was wondering how my life as a lazy student would be without all these smart gadget and machines...

I am currently so dependant on my alarm clock (which always got slammed by me every morning at the snooze button), water heater which prevents my balls self from freezing at shower, microwave (trust me, as a student abroad, it is crucial to have one as u will eat a lot of food using it), laptop, IPHONE (my latest addition to the daily-must-have) and not to forget, my dear washer machine and dryer...

I've been so much depending on the 2 squarish-turning-loud-noise-producing-but-helpful machine since i went to college due to the absence of my dear mother to do my laundry.. hehe.. you see, my mom is the type of traditional lady who thinks that washer machine washed clothes are not as good as the hand washed clothes as it is less efficient and time consuming...

So when i first left home from Penang to my then college in KL, (as i was staying in the college's hostel) during the first few weeks, i did all my laundry with my bare hands and yes, everything just like the good old days when your grandparents have to wash, rinse, dry then collect and fold WITH MY PRECIOUS BARE HANDS... ok, it is really not that bad, but just maybe take quite a while and maybe not as clean as the one washed by my mom but hey, i was still new to KL and the hostel life and i thought that washing using the machine was kinda expensive (RM3.00 per wash + RM3.00 for dryer....i know, its not that expensive!)...

anyway, like after a few months weeks of doing a whole pile of laundry (you know, college life = fashion parade everyday) every weekend, i got sick of it and the devil in me just tempted me to go to the machine and dump everything in to sit back and relax... and guess what, from then onwards, i dont really do much of hand washing unless i really need to to protect my expensive clothings...

and yea, my clothes + uniform are all drying now in the dryer AND ITS FREE!!
