Kingfisher, ICL surgery and Independence Day Updates

Happy Independence Day, Malaysia! Gracing this blog with a Kingfisher photo that I took with my Fujifilm XT-30 camera.

I took this shot while I was still recovering from ICL – my first photo since the op. My vision is unfortunately still blurry and not as sharp as it was before the surgery. It has been over a month, hopefully it wouldn’t continue for too long without full recovery.

This year has been full of bad news, so I would like to share a photo of this cute magnificent bird. I also decided to share this photo because the red, white and blue colours reminded me of Malaysia’s flag.

For those wondering what ICL is, it is a surgery similar to LASIK, but with newer tech and is non-invasive. It is called Implantable Contact Lens. The operation is generally safe but recovery rate depends on the individual. I did both eyes at the same time.

That’s it for now, enjoy your day 🙂


Six Fanarts Challenge

6 Fanarts: Cloud, Meve, Lisa Simpson (teenager), Ao Bing, Nezha and Sailormoon. Drew these to rekindle my passion in drawing, not exactly successful but moving on!

I love drawing underdogs having a banter.

Work End Greetings’ Hidden Meaning

Here’s a list of hidden meaning for work end greetings!

Before I continue, I say this in jest (disclaimer for woke keyboard warriors, you never know with the amount of triggered people today) No offense! 😛

  1. Yours truly – I don’t know you well and it’s done unwillingly
  2. Yours sincerely – because it’s never sincere
  3. Best regards – default face
  4. Warmest regards – I want you to know that I like you or that I’m the friendliest person on Earth
  5. Warm regards – because I like you but not enough for the next level
  6. Kind regards – same as warm regards but an attempt to sound friendlier
  7. Regards – getting chilly here
  8. Cheers – it means chill, nitwit!
  9. With appreciation – at least I have manners
  10. Yours respectfully – I’m traditional
  11. Cordially – I’m warm but pompous
  12. Best wishes – I hate formality
  13. Thanks – another default face
  14. Looking forward to hearing from you – don’t waste my time
  15. All the best – more sincere than yours sincerely
  16. With gratitude – I’m old-fashioned
  17. Faithfully – used when dealing with unknown strangers

Cheers.
