kepam

during my stay in Ireland i don't have any problem with musty smell since the air is cold and dry. except during summer as the temperature is higher than normal. since some people don't usually bathe on daily basis so the kepamness is so strong. i remember at one time when i was doing shopping in Tesco, the whole aisle smells as if i'm constantly walking under someone's armpit. one of the persons in the aisle must have not been bathing for a long time. this is not winter mate. thank god i only encounter such situation only once. phewww

now i'm back in Malaysia, its hot and humid all the time. so yeah the dankness will be there. after few years living on my own and now im back staying in a hostel with students my god the kepamness is so strong. you can smell it straight away once you enter the corridor of the hostel. my room is the first room in the corridor but the toilet is at the other end of the corridor. so i have to walk all they way every time i want to go to the toilet. even though the corridor is already smelling kepam but each room has its own unique kepam smell that i can smell every time i pass through the room. i don't have to enter the rooms nor do they have to open the door i can still smell the kepam. that shows how strong is the smell. well not to say my room doesn't smell but my room is one of the rooms that has strong smell. i feel so uncomfortable living in kepam smell that i make it mandatory to open the window all the time i'm in the room and curtain must be tied. ventilation, check. sunshine, check. 
been spraying febreeze and ambipur a lot to make the room smell nice. i even put charcoal to absorb smell inside the room. oh i bought some onions that i intend to use as food but ended up used to absorb smell too as i read somewhere onions do absorb stuffs which is why it is not recommended to put cut onion in fridge. since my roommate has gone back home, i put those onions on his bed and pillows and oh yeah i put the charcoal under his bed secretly. lol it's like i'm trying to voodoo the guy. it's okay. it's just a ritual to get rid of the smelly jin. thanks to the efforts my room has been less smelly since the time i first got here. oh wait, does it really get less smelly or I'm getting used to the smell that i no longer smell them? nooooo!!!!!!! i should ask my roommate to wash his bantal busuks and all the bed sheets and pillowcases.

seriously parents should teach their children to really take care of hygiene and they themselves should learn to practice hygiene. children follow role model easier not just preaching. it is sad to see grown ups still don't know how to take care of hygiene and cleanliness.
