One Tree Hill Restaurant review

one tree hill

One Tree Hill Restaurant is located at the ex-campus of Lim Kok Wing
college. It was converted into an eating establishment recently and
there was some debate to the actual name of the said eating
establishment (One Hill Tree, One Branch on a Tree and so forth were
evocated, mostly by me) until we got there. My dining companion told me
I’m dyslectic.

one tree hill restaurant

One Tree Hill restaurant is nestled nicely on top
of a hill and there is ample parking space. It is one of the new
Magenta styled themed eating establishments except One Tree Hill has
one hell of a menu. “Diverse” was the word my dining companion called
it. There was Asian cuisine, Italian food, as well as more general
dining fare people here associate with “Western Food”.

one tree hill al fresco

One Tree Hill has a shaded al fresco dining area out in the front.
It’s nice but perhaps a little impractical for the Malaysian climate.
It may be good at night though, and it’s shaded under tent-like
structures at least.

The bulk of the One Hill Tree dining experience is stage left. There
are nice brick textures to the structure of the restaurant and it
imparts a general feeling of coziness. The interior of One Hill Tree is
completely air-conditioned and reservations are recommended.

One Hill Tree has a full bar and serves alcohol as well as a variety
of wines and has seating accommodations to cater for just about any
number of people. The tables for two are nicely done, it’s not too
small like most dining establishments but it’s cozy enough to allow for
meaningful conversation at the same time.

one tree hill painting

There is an oil canvas in featured in the dining area of One Tree
Hill and I thought it looked very much like the mansion where One Tree
Hill is currently now based. The restaurant is perhaps better described
as being a mansion converted into an eating establishment.

one tree hill natural lighting

One Tree Hill has one wall that has see-though glass for sunlight to
come in. The area is curved so it allows what little light that filters
in is able to permeate the entire dining area. It has a nice view of
the car park and surrounding areas.

This is the view from the window at One Tree Hill restaurant. The
lush gardens and trees featured is quite pleasing to the eye (lots of
green ;)) and that’s probably where the name of this restaurant came
from – there is a huge single tree that stands out from the rest of the

one tree hill shrimp salad

Shrimp Salad (RM 15)
Delicious shrimps, apples and potatoes tossed in our special cocktail dressing served on a bed of crispy lettuce.

It’s good. It’s a little over-dressed (too much 1k Island Sauce) but at least it’s cold. ;)

one tree hill chicken kiev

Chicken Kiev (RM 25)
This is what my dining companion had. It’s good, I had a bite of it and it contains ham (?) in between the chicken fillet.

I cannot name my dining companion due to certain issues of circumstance so don’t ask. :p

one tree hill burger

One Tree Hill Beef Burger (RM 23)
Mouth watering grounded patties of lean sirloin with crispy lettuce,
cucumbers, tomatoes, chilli and tomato sauce, dill pickle and a touch
of creamy mayo. Comes in a sesame seed bun.

It also contains a note that all One Tree Hill burgers are accompanied by their home-made coleslaw and French fries.

one tree hill roasted lamb

Roasted Lamb (RM 32)
This came recommended from our waitress and it did not disappoint. Its
good roasted lamb in slices and the presentation is great, with baby
corn and other miscellaneous items adding color to the dish. We shared
this one and this is the best item on One Tree Hill’s menu to date.

One Tree Hill restaurant comes highly recommended from me – the service is good, the ambience is great, and the company is immaculate. ;)

Fansign from the Great White North (Canada)

sue fansign cb

Sue a.k.a. LittleBrat from Canada sent me this
fansign just now. This is the third international fansign to go up on It says “I roll with the crew” and has a
picture of me us with my our tongue
stud and a drawing of a heart with the words “HB” in it, together with
a dedication to her husband, who is also a reader of this blog. Hello

Thanks LittleBrat! LittleBrat runs a photolog at Canadian Brat []. She’s the coolest and most intelligent person I know.

Canadian girls kicks ass! ;)

The Medium from Thailand

thailand medium house

I was dragged to a new and “really good” medium during the weekend
after boozing at a pub. My friend was really keen to go and no one
wanted to go with her (I wanted to go clubbing too, actually), but I
thought wtf, and humored her. I went with nothing except my cell phone
(which explains the image quality or the lack thereof).

thailand medium prayer

There was a counter at the front of the semi-detached house in the
middle of nowhere and a group of devout believers at the front with a
book (which my friend told me is equivalent to a tithe) so I gave them
RM 20 and we were allowed into this room with a lot of religious
figurines and prayer paraphernalia.

thailand medium joss sticks

It was rather Zen-like actually, and my friend told me to take the
joss sticks (totaling 3 in number) light it, say a prayer and then take
it to the container outside and repeat the same incantation while
planting the joss sticks into the container. I’m not familiar with the
rites and rituals of such proceedings so it was interesting to find out.

thailand medium beer

The best part about the entire fiasco? Free beer! No shit, they had
free beer and a (small) buffet tablet lineup for food. I didn’t eat but
I drank a lot of beer. It was definitely worth the RM 20 admission fee.
I got to meet with the medium from Thailand too (he was also holding a
can of beer, strangely) and he gave me four digits for Toto (Lotto).

I didn’t use it. ;)

"Sum of Parts" Combination: Baclofen + zopidem + tramadol

sum of parts baclofen front

Well, any self-respecting professional drug user (?) is bound to
have times when stocks of the Good Stuff (TM) runs low, and those times
usually coincides with the experimentation of combinations of inferior
(but available) pharmaceuticals with potential in the hopes of catching
a high that exceeds the sum of its parts. I like to call this doing the
“Sum of Parts” combo a.k.a. riding the potentiating effects of pharmaceutical stacking.

This is one of the right combinations.

sum of parts baclofen back

Baclofen is marketed as Lioresal and is prescribed as a muscle relaxant. However, the drug use community has found out that baclofen
[] could be a possible Gamma hydroxybutyrate (GHB) analog
in higher-than-prescribed doses which I have documented in the link
above due to the GABA (B) agonist properties.

sum of parts lioresal

I finally tracked down the elusive blister packs of Lioresal and
used to have a whole stash of them before the police raided my place
and carted away anything that resembles pills or capsules but I managed
to find one last blister pack deep down in my stash box – it was caught
between the cardboard and thus was missed by the raiding party. I know
– it’s sad.

sum of parts baclofen pills

The baclofen is similar to the tablets that I have sourced before
except this comes in the proper blister packaging. There is the
familiar CG/K|J imprint on the pills and the brand name is Liorésal 10
mg. I had a full blister pack of this which makes it 100 mg.

sum of parts zopiclone

I also managed to obtain 30 tablets of zopiclone (Imovane) in the form of 7.5 mg generic tablets from the pharmaceutical giant APO. I have also written about zopiclone
[] back in 2003 when I didn’t have an opiate habit (had a
methamphetamine habit instead) and my benzodiazepine
tolerance/dependence wasn’t quite as large as it is right now (it just
keeps getting higher).

sum of parts zopiclone pills

Zopiclone isn’t hard to obtain coz my doctor already prescribes me a
generous maintenance benzodiazepine course – 3 x 2 mg Rivotril
(clonazepam), 4 x 15 mg Dormicum (midazolam) and 10 x 0.5 mg Xanax
(alprazolam) daily so I just casually mentioned zopiclone and he just
gave it to me, albeit with a rather strange spoken postscript – “Don’t
inject it, ah”.

I think he knew I was desperate that night to get off and since I
couldn’t score opiates off him, he probably figured I was going to get
fucked up anyway, one way or the other.

(For the record, he was cleaned out – three 500 tablet DF-118
bottles was polished off by three patients in two months – and as luck
would have it, the patients were named me, myself, and I, so you can
imagine the implications behind that if anyone found out. To order more
is to court disaster and risk questions about prescribing policies and
would necessitate the second “disappearance” of my medical record
should it be known that a single patient consumed that amount of DF-118
dihydrocodeine 30 mg with the willing participation of the said doctor.
It would be useless to tell “them” that he justified his actions as a
healthcare provider genuinely interested in my well being by getting me
off street drugs and giving me a local harm reduction option in lieu of
methadone replacement therapy in KL. The same thing happened about a
year back and my medical record went “missing” to start me on a clean
slate and to protect him from justifying prescriptions of certain
controlled pharmaceuticals which some third-party observers might find
excessive, but was actually necessary for your safety
since I was using methamphetamine abusively then and was prone to
aggression during meth induced psychosis and needed to be heavily
sedated with large amount of benzodiazepines for public interest. I
think one nurse was fired over that for “sloppy record keeping” and I
still miss her to this day. I’m sorry you had to take the fall for us.
Take care and Godspeed, wherever you are.)

Combination dosage:
(Caution: This is not a dosage guide!)

Prior consumed pharmaceuticals:Prozac (fluoxetine) :40 mg (morning)
Benzodiazepines: Various (clonazepam 6 mg, alprazolam 4 mg and lorazepam 2 mg) throughout the day

“Sum of Parts” Dose:
Baclofen: 100 mg
Zopiclone: 225 mg
Tramadol: 400 mg
Dormicum (midazolam): 150 mg

I took 100 mg of baclofen and washed it down with 20 tablets of 7.5 mg zopiclone (don’t try this at home) and it felt good – it was
better than the sum of its parts. I was full of serotonin for some
reason, really happy, laughing, slurring my words and disinhibited. It
was really good for 2 hours before a noticeable plateau so I took
tramadol to boost it up again and it was great. It’s a really chatty
disinhibited happy feeling, with a lot of slurring and anterograde
amnesia (which is really quite fun while out, I would be talking and my
friends couldn’t make sense of me with the slurring, and I would forget
things in the middle of sentences which is quite amusing really).

There is an unusual amount of drug-seeking behavior (well, more than
usual anyway :p) while on this combination – I kept on seeking more
things to get me up, and I took the rest of the zopiclone (225 mg in
all – the entire 30 tablets) and several benzodiazepines that I was
carrying around with me (clonazepam and alprazolam – unknown amount). I
can’t remember exactly what I took, but a friend had to stop me from
popping pills and apparently I kept insisting that I was alright, but
she got concerned anyway.

It was a blur for the next three hours (five hours from starting
dose) before I got home and went straight to my prescription meds and
gobbled down a full blister pack of Dormicum (midazolam) 15 mg. 10
tablets of Dormicum at once. I don’t remember much after that but
apparently I decided to sleep at some point (that I remember) and left
everything running and woke up to glaring lights and music at about 11
pm – a seven hour sleep.

I didn’t feel bad the next day, unlike the massive headache and
excessive sleeping I encountered the first time I took baclofen (have
taken more recreationally since then) but in hindsight, I took a lot of
benzodiazepines and other hypnotics that night and while I was still
aware of what I was doing, I could have overdosed if I hadn’t taken the
strip of Dormicum 15 mgs which knocked me out.

I would probably still be fiending and trying to get more out of the
“Sum of Parts” and take more benzos or mistake the Panadeine (500 mg
paracetamol/APAP with 8 mg codeine) for Paralgin Forte (300 mg
paracetamol/APAP with 30 mg codeine) or worse, didn’t give a flying
fuck either way and grabbed fistfuls and swallowed it anyway (Panadeine
is the devil coz paracetamol/APAP is Satan).
(Paralgin Forte is alright though if you can’t get any opiate only preparations)

It should be noted that 150 mg of Dormicum (midazolam) with the
other benzodiazepines would be considered excessive to a benzodiazepine
naïve person and could lead to an overdose in non-benzodiazepine
tolerant people. I have taken larger amounts of Dormicum before since
(therefore? – Cause and Causation) I’m desensitized to it, so I have to
repeat – this is not a dosage guide.

The sum of the pharmaceutical combination is greater than the parts though, for what it’s worth. ;)

…but it’s also a dirty, desperate attempt to get off and for that
price (the price of the pharmaceuticals) you can catch a better high
though non-pharmaceutical substances. Only for the desperate (in my
defense, I was doing it to stave off opiate withdrawals :p) with no
other better substances or those who has miscellaneous pharmaceuticals
with potential lying around at home.

For what it’s worth, it feels like low dose MDMA, and I could have
gotten Ecstasy tablets instead…except I don’t do e anymore, unless
it’s for a worthy cause (or with the right people) coz the day after
serotonin depletion effect exacerbates my depression.

Speaking of opiates, it seems that the Malaysian government has
decided to take DF-118 and other opiate containing preparations off the
market slowly and leaving only morphine and fentanyl for palliative
care patients so stock up while you can. It seems to be true, from the
trends in the industry and more importantly, coz a beautiful angel
told me so (she’s right, trust me, coz she’s a divine being and thus
cannot be wrong, or it would violate the fundamental omniscience basis
of most religions).

I’m sending out a team of my protégés (two male and one female) to
obtain as much opiate preparations as they can coz I am unable to get
prescriptions filled anymore due to pushing my luck once too many at
the various medical establishments over here (and also due to general
no-go red flags on my good name and the medical records it is
associated with due to rampant documentation of my activities on this
blog and the inevitable word of mouth mechanism creating
awareness amongst the medical fraternity and my reputable name along
with it).

I am now limiting my doctor shopping activities to a couple of
select doctors who are blissfully unaware of the existence of this blog
or its connection to me (Why do you think I never put up another huge
picture in the About Me page? That’s what the Narcotics police printed
out in full color glossy A4 sized glory along with the more
incriminating parts of my blog when they arrested me at my office so
I’m not going to repeat that mistake. You have to search for photos
now.) and I have a couple of solid links with dihydrocodeine 30 mg
(just got 84 tablets off one doctor for a “slipped disc”).

My protégés are going to do most of my opiate doctor shopping for me
now, since they’re “clean” (no prior records) and they’re actually
getting quite good (one guy and one girl have successfully obtained
DF-118, Paralgin Forte and DF-118, generic dihydrocodeine 30 mg, and
morphine respectively) with a bit of my guidance, and they’re all
presenting different ailments and are unaware of each other and don’t
take opiates themselves which is a Good Thing (TM) coz you never ask an
opiate user to score for you. It’ll just end up consumed. ;)

I’m offering them different terms too – one is new, one is swapping
the opiates he gets for my benzodiazepines as a favor, and one is just
doing it coz she can (and coz I reimburse the price of the consultation
+ medication for both hits and misses) but I do get a little concerned
about the methods employed by the last one – the morphine was boosted
in a CCTV covered area – but I must admit, she’s good at it, probably
coz you’re so klepto. :p Oh, which reminds me, she’s doing it coz she
owes me anyway, I saved her ass when she boosted some articles from MNG
and she had to call me and I had to pay her way out so they don’t call
the cops. I love you all anyway. =D

Go forth, and make fishers of men!

(or something)

Hmm…I seem to have greatly deviated from the post subject. My apologies.

You know I’m spun when I write voluminous posts with lengthy asides and constant meanderings like this one. ;)

Pethidine (meperidine) IM injection experience report

pethidine ampoule

Pethidine is also known as meperidine a.k.a Demerol,
an opiate agonist used for moderate to severe pain, with an equivalency
of 7.5 mg of pethidine to 1 mg of morphine in parenteral
administration. Pethidine/meperidine has a duration of 2 hours so it’s
a pretty short acting opioid. I was out doctor shopping the whole of
last night and didn’t get a hit out of the five medical establishments
I went to. I guess six is my lucky number coz I managed to get a
pethidine IM injection from it. =D

pethidine flash

This is Injection Pethidine Hydrochloride 50 mg/ml made by DuoPharma (Malaysia). I have never tried pethidine IM injection so imagine my glee as I made this happen. ;)

Doctor: You were here for DF-118 last time right? The medical record says you have a bad back.
Me: I actually had a slipped disc (actually, I don’t ;)) and it slipped again for the second time.
(makes “ouch face”, grimaces and made as if my spinal cord was killing me)
Doctor: Do we have DF-118 here? (talking to nurse)
Nurse: (after rummaging through the restricted access
medication cabinet, they don’t have it, I know that coz I’ve been here
before) No we don’t, but we have Voltaren.
Doctor: Do you want something else? I can give you another pain-killer.
Me: (Hell no! It’s opiates or nothing) Doctor, I hope
you can help coz I’m in a lot of pain right now. Can you write a script
or something?
Doctor: Okay, do you have a medical history of your slipped disc?
Me: Yeah, I had an MRI and X-Ray done in KL, where it
happened (which didn’t happen, of course ;)) and the prognosis was a
slipped disc, which I slipped again just now (*grimace of pain*)
Doctor: Do you have it with you?
Me: No, I’m sorry doctor, I left the medical documents in KL…
Doctor: Okay, well since you have a prior here, I’ll script you. Is there anything else?
Me: (pushing my luck, deciding to go for gold) Hey, I
know this is a strange question, but I’m in a lot of pain right now, do
you have anything to help me get through tonight? Can you give me a
morphine shot? (Prays to God he doesn’t go amok)
Doctor: Morphine…hmm…well, we do have morphine but
we don’t give it to outpatients. I think we have pethidine though, do
you want that?
Me: Is pethidine an opiate? (Knowing full well it is, but no harm in playing the dumb patient)
Doctor: Yes it is.
(Writes Pethidine 50 mg IM stat on my medical record)
Me: (looks) (tries not to grin) (tries not to grin again, perhaps somewhat unsuccessfully) Thank you very much doctor.
Doctor: Alright, just lie there and I’ll prep the shot.
Me: (puts on a show of painful lying down and bolts
straight up, apparently with a good back again) Hey, I’m sorry doctor,
another unusual request, can I take a photo of the pethidine vial?
Doctor: Why?
Me: It’s just an interest of mine. (starts photoshoot of the IM pethidine 50 mg snap off ampoule) Thanks doctor.
Doctor: Okay, I’m going to inject you now. Turn over.
Me: Er…can I take the IM injection in my arm? (I
don’t want the doctor to see my thigh, which is the best place to bang
shit if you’re holding down a professional job – full of scar marks and
bruises from injections – he would have known for sure I’m an IDU –
Injecting Drug User).
Doctor: (Grips my arm) Seems to be okay here.
Me: (starts filming the procedure)

pethidine shot

Script from pethidine injection video:
Me: Is it in? Pethidine 50 mg?
Doctor: Mmm…
Me: Okay, IM, (Jesus Christ, I should not have said that in the video but it just slipped out).
(sounds of pethidine injection process)
Me: Yeah, that’s the place.
Doctor: Hmm…why do you have some bruises here?
(OMG those are my IM injection spots when I was injecting ketamine)
Me: Er…uh…they’re some just bruises, ya know. I probably hit something.
(Quickly changes subject)
Me: So, is that pethidine 50 mg?
Doctor: Yeah.
Me: Thanks.

(24 MB .MOV file zipped. Requires QuickTime)

Doctor: Are you driving?
Me: Er…no. (actually I am)
Doctor: This will cause the usual opiate side effects, drowsiness etc. so be careful.
Me: I will, my friend is just outside (actually no one
is outside, I don’t take friends on doctor shopping expedition after a
disastrous incident where I lost a good doctor coz me and my friend was
stoned and high on meth and she had a laughing fit).
Doctor: Okay, here is your script. You’re not a drug addict are you?
Me: (*coughs and nearly chokes*) Of course I’m not. I hate drugs. ;) (I didn’t wink, I’m just winking on the blog)
Doctor: Good.

pethidine bill

Price of 50 mg pethidine vial: RM 10
Price of surgical consumable items (that means the syringe and swabs): RM 0.40
Price of boosting a pethidine shot: PRICELESS! =D

pethidine charges

Pethidine Experience Report:
(10 minutes after the shot)
Me: I’m not feeling it yet, doctor? How long does it take to kick in?
Doctor: It’s not going to be so fast.
Me: So we can’t IV pethidine huh?
Doctor: (gives me a strange look) No, it’s for IM.
Me: Okay, thank you very, very much doctor.
(Shakes doctor’s hand very vigorously, perhaps too enthusiastic to be unsuspicious)

pethidine shot after

T+ 0:30: A general feeling of elation and well being. Don’t know if
it’s the pethidine or the euphoria of getting away with a shot of
pethidine just like that.
T+ 0:45: Cigarettes smokes well, like on opiates but it’s nowhere near
as strong as dihydrocodeine. It does give a rather pleasant high though
– kinda chill, but still motivated, I’m typing this as we speak, which
I usually don’t.
T+ 1:00: I think this is the peak – it’s nothing special – I could
compare it to a cross between tramadol and codeine if that makes sense.
It feels like tramadol + codeine…and er, it seems a wee bit
hallucinatory, I don’t know how to explain it, it’s like the feeling
when you get a hit of LSD and is about to come up and trip, but it
never happens. I just mentioned it coz I saw the cigarette smoke
drifting off. Perhaps a more apt description would be a very mild case
of Ambien induced hallucinations.
T+ 1:30: Hey, I’m feeling a little of that opiate warmth now. It’s nice but too mild for my tolerance.

50 mg of phethedine wasn’t enough to get me off, but I did feel good
– which part of it is the phethedine and which part is the elation of
pulling this shit off is subjective. I’m full of glee though. :)

pethidine vial

Pethidine IM feels a lot like a combination of
tramadol and codeine at doses of 100 mg and 300 mg respectively. There
is a general feeling of well being and slight stimulation but with some
of the jitteriness of tramadol (very mild). It’s more like a cross
between tramadol and codeine. The opiate warmth is present but mild. At
my tolerance level, 50 mg of pethidine isn’t much, but at least I can
feel it…and I’m STILL feeling st0ked about pulling this off! =D

Hail to the King, baby! =D

Serious Shit

serious shit toilet

This is some Serious Shit (TM) right here…

There is hard, compacted stool from my methadone using days, the
more liquid form of excretion during withdrawals, constant use of
DF-118 (dihydrocodeine) and the small compacted shit that you see
underlying the rest.

There is even a log in there the size of an 8″ dildo after a colon
blockage from extensive and excessive use of opiates (three week’s
worth of shit backed up) that hurt like HELL coming out. Now I know how
it feels like to be ass fucked. :(

The yellow goo is new, fresh from last night and this morning’s offerings to the porcelain throne.

I think there should be a lot of puke in there too – projectile
vomiting from excessive drinking and general throwing up…and deep,
deep down, if you care to look (even the police wouldn’t) there should
be about 5 points (500 mg) of methamphetamine in 5 straws and a meth
pipe (plus several syringes) down there (if it hasn’t turned into shit
already) during a moment of paranoia when I tried to flush it, pulled
too hard and broke the damn thing.

…and what did I do? I shat on it, that’s what I did. I figured no
one would want to dig through all that shit (easily a year’s worth, no
shit) so I’m good and safe eh? ;)

BTW, does anyone know a good plumber?

Kingdom Hearts – Kurt Zisa

kingdom hearts

I have been playing a lot of Kingdom Hearts for the PS2 lately. I
know I’m slow, but I like to do things in sequence – I’ll play Kingdom
Hearts on my PS2, then Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories on my GameBoy
micro before playing Kingdom Hearts 2 on the PS2 again. I’m a big fan
of Square (now Square-Enix) RPGs and the fusion of the Final Fantasy
worlds with Disney worlds is amazingly appealing.

I’m up to Hollow Bastion now, finished the first trip to it and am
trying to beat the optional bosses. I’m working on Kurt Zisa in Agrabah
– I’m Level 59 and I nearly kicked that mecha looking boss in the
desert’s ass (Blizzara works great as well as the Ragnarok ability – if
you can hit him with it – it really drains the HP bar). I woke up at
2:30 am last night and gave it three more tries – nearly did it once,
with the help of Tinkerbell (the Summon – essential to keep you alive)
before going to sleep again.

Kurt Zisa got me thinking – it was a fan contest to have an optional
boss named after him/her and a Caucasian or Jewish sounding name would
probably be alright since it melds with the theme of the game, but what
if I won? The mecha desert boss name would be Poh Huai Bin which
wouldn’t fit into the general naming scheme and theme of the game. The
same goes for most Chinese and Japanese names so I was wondering…do
they filter out certain candidates?

Anyway, just some nonsensical “first thought of the day” thing, I’m
actually really busy these few days with work so forgive the lack of
updates. I’ll make up for it – promise. Cheers!

My doctor reads my blog

df118 120 script

My doctor reads my blog and I screwed it up big time with the
Duragesic post…I’m not getting any fentanyl patches coz “it would be
gross negligence for me to prescribe it to you after all I know”. Which
is fine, seriously. I’m cool with that. Everyone has an ass to cover
and you’re doing just that. It’s cool with me.

df118 120 side

Thus, we entered discussions of what a secondary taper plan would be
(dammit I should not have written about fentanyl that day :p) and we
discussed morphine (MS-Contin 30 mg) which he nearly prescribed before
thinking twice and just decided to fall back on Old Faithful (DF-118
not OxyContin, the latter causes a lot of phone calls for verification
and takes about 1 hour to process).

df118 120 show

I told him I’m serious about quitting and told him my actual
maintenance dose (which is at least 30 tablets of DF-118 (900 mg of
dihydrocodeine) which is equianalgesic to 270 mg of MS-Contin (about 9
tablets of 30 mg morphine) which didn’t shock him much, being my old
doctor and that (and partly why he dared to put me on Duragesic
fentanyl patches in the first place, I would have OD if I didn’t have
an opiate tolerance).

He gave me one last prescription for DF-118 (120 tablets) staggered
by 10 days (basically a dated repeat Rx script) authorizing 60 tablets
today and 60 tablets 10 days down the road. He basically put me on
DF-118 30 mg x 2 (60 mg) three times a day (240 mg per day). That is
not enough to even stave off my withdrawals so I had to renegade on my
promise and despite this being the last prescription, I think I’m going
to take it (in a non-recreational but non-withdrawal inducing manner
;))and then go on methadone.

You can tell I’m not serious about quitting. ;) Like I said, I’ll
quit when I’m good and ready, hey, I smoked and injected crystal
methamphetamine for several years (abusively and compulsively) and quit
just like that *snaps fingers*. I’ll do that same with opiates…when
I’m good and ready. I’m thinking about Methadone Replacement Therapy
(on the condition that only my opiate problem is being treated and not
my benzodiazepine issue) when I run out of opiates from the Sibu

Me: Can I get both the prescription filled, so that
I can have 120 tablets instead of just 60 tablets and come back again
in 10 days just to refill the script coz this place is kinda far from
where I stay?
(after calling my doctor to verify the script, oh boy, he must not be happy to hear I’m getting all 120 at once)
Pharmacist: Sure, I’ll make that arrangement for you.
Me: Thank you very much, I appreciate that.
Pharmacist: So you took time off work today?
Me: Nope, I had a client somewhere near here so I just happened to pass by.
Pharmacist: You must be pretty hardworking.
(wondering wtf that question meant)
Me: Well, I get the job done.
Pharmacist: Where do you stay?
Me: Tabuan Jaya.
(which is not really where I stay)
Pharmacist: Yeah, that’s a bit far.
Pharmacist: Anyway, the prescription is ready. 120 tablets of DF-118.
Me: Thank you very much, I always get a lot of problems with cashing in the script due to the nature of the medication.
Pharmacist: No problem. Glad to be of service.
Me: Thanks! You have a nice day, now.

(at the prescription counter)
Pharmacist #2: Mr. Poh?
Me: That’s me.
Pharmacist #2: 120 tablets of DF-118. Wow, do you mind me asking what ailment you’re suffering?
Me: I have a bad back and migraines. I’m opiate tolerant so the basic NSAIDs and triptans don’t really work on me.
Pharmacist #2: Really? What were you on?
Me: Well, I was put on Paralgin Forte (a 30 mg codeine preparation) at a very young age.
Pharmacist #2: *nods unconvincingly*
So who is you primary care doctor?
Me: (uh oh, I have scripts from literally dozens of
doctors cashed in this fine medical facility) Well, it’s Doctor X (who
died from cancer).
Pharmacist #2: Okay. We’re not supposed to give out so much DF-118 at once but we’ll make an exception this time ok?
Me: Thanks, I appreciate that…and do you know that
you’re the only place to stock DF-118 in Kuching? (That’s me getting
all chatty and shit) Timberland, they have morphine and fentanyl only.
Kuching Specialist, they only carry morphine and Duragesic.
Pharmacist #2: Really? Why don’t you try those instead?
Me: Er…I’m 25, who’s going to want to prescribe me morphine and fentanyl? *smiles*
Pharmacist #2: Oh, okay yeah I get what you mean. Thank you and have a nice day.
Me: You have a nice day too, and take care…and you
know what, can you put down a note there that says I’m opiate tolerant,
not opiate dependant, just in case, God forbid, I get run down by a car
and checks into this fine medical facility, I just want to be on an
equianalgesic dose, ya know.
(at this point most of the pharmacists look at me quizzically – some
were smiling, some were not – but at least the girls were smiling)

Wise guy till the end. ;)

I’m not doing mosaic on the medical facility anymore – they’re the only
ones carrying DF-118 anyway, and referring to the previous comment
about whether it is from Normah, well if it looks like it’s from
Normah, tastes like it’s from Normah and smells like it’s from
Normah…then it probably came from Normah!

You don’t go eating something that looks like shit, tastes like
shit, and smells like shit and go “Mmm…this here is some mighty fine
chocolate pie” do you?

Jesus Christ…

Oh, and in other news, I lost RM 3,500 on football over the weekend…

…and that girl in the Miri fight video (the assailant with the
blue scrunchie) is fucking hot! Can you call me at 013 811 2088 if
you’re reading this? I’ll fly over to Miri for some S&M action if
you’re up for it. ;)
