a love that's warm and bright.

prof ling and the 3stanis at the very last anatomy practical of the academic year! am glad for the fridays i spent with this group. :) (photos edited with the help of chen.)

did we really learn that much about the human body in just six months? the upper and lower limbs, the thorax, the abdomen, the pelvis and perineum, the spinal cord, the head and neck? what do i know, now?

with moses, who will write anatomy textbooks one day.

some snapshots from today. boo, enough time spent editing photos! time to rest my tired head.

I wish you sunrays and Saturdays
Perfect starry nights
Sweet dreams and moonbeams
And a love that's warm and bright
Sunrays and Saturdays
Friendship strong and true
Oceans of blue and a room with a view
To live the life you choose

a bean-shaped kidney.

was torn away from gluconeogenesis when mom took out some old albums that we haven't looked at since we've moved in last year. some pictures from our trip to the philippines... i think i was only five or six then.

my dad with uncle floro, an unnamed man and fidel ramos, president of the philippines at that time.

alright, back to the books to revise my small molecules.

a kidney-shaped bean.

  • i am much stronger than that of which i accord myself.
  • the inter-anatomy group genetics quiz is tomorrow! moses and the 3stanis!
  • secretory diarrhoea is not fun. i am probably in a state of metabolic acidosis. i should start hyperventilating if this gets worse.
  • i really miss sngs and hwachong!
  • there are a few letters to a few individuals i really want to write but am unable to afford the time to. will do this once i am free of kaoshis.
  • most things are really inconsequential. there is no need for the pain or that emotional turmoil. all our worries and struggles tend to look up in the end.
  • there are many things in life to be grateful for, to look forward to and to smile about. :)

I've got a crush on you

I hope you feel the way that I do
I get a rush when I'm with you
Ooh I've got a crush on you, a crush on you

(crush.mp3 by mr. zhuanghui wu)

where did the good go.

boo, i shall not let the 考试s induce all these moods and guilt in me for wanting time off the books!

woe, be gone. i must cheer up and work harder.

ack, why'd you have to go away? take care, newly minted melbournians waiye and madd. will be looking forward to your return in june.

But you can't jump the track
We're like cars on a cable

And life's like an hourglass glued to the table
No one can find the rewind button now
Sing it if you understand
And breathe, just breathe
Woah breathe, just breathe

I'll walk in the rain by your side
I'll cling to the warmth of your hand
I'll do anything to keep you satisfied
I'll love you more than anybody can

And the wind will whisper your name to me
Little birds will sing along in time
Leaves will bow down when you walk by
And morning bells will chime

I'll be there when you're feelin' down
To kiss away the tears if you cry
I'll share with you all the happiness I've found
A reflection of the love in your eyes

And I'll sing you the songs of the rainbow
A whisper of the joy that is mine
And leaves will bow down when you walk by
And morning bells will chime

strange and beautiful.

...Yet, it is still fascinating for me to read this from time to time, to look upon one of the few carefree moments of my life... and, most importantly, to remember how my life changed in an instant of serendipity.

It is amazing how one of the best things in life can creep up on you in a foreign land, when you least expect it. Yet, cloaked as it was in uncertainty, you fight it, fearing the worse and not recognising its true nature. Eventually, you give in, being unable - and unwilling - to resist any longer, and allow it to softly wrap around you in the gentlest of embraces, emanating an aura of joy that permeates your entire soul. From that moment onwards, nothing is ever the same again.

How strange life is... and how happy.

the things of youth.

Go placidly amidst the noise and haste
and remember what peace there may be in silence
As far as possible without surrender,
be on good terms with all persons

in a bout of fatigue today, i was inconsiderate. i forgot that there is hardly ever a need for haste, and that certain things matter more.

may i always remember that there is no excuse for that, that doctors should always be mindful of the people around them, regardless of the circumstances.

Take kindly the counsel of the years,
gracefully surrendering the things of youth.
Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune
But do not distress yourself with dark imaginings;
many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness

Beyond a wholesome discipline, be gentle with yourself.
You are a child of the universe, no less than the trees and the stars.

and may i remember that i am human after all, and thus should be kind to myself.

as always, the physicians development programme (PDP) this afternoon made us think beyond the guyton, the netter's, the snell and the wheater's. we're lucky our tutor is so insightful.

when i got home, someone had adopted me a pig!

my pet!

thank you, silly. :)

you are a shining light.

We made our connection
A full on chemical reaction
Brought by dark divine intervention
Yeah, you are a shining light
A constellation once seen
Over Royal David's city
An epiphany you burn so pretty
Yeah, you are a shining light

who could replace you in my heart, my dear hairanne?

every blessing.

surprise farewell party at my place for mari and madd! well it wasn't much of a surprise, methinks.

aye, mari's leaving tonight.

I close my eyes and try to see the world unbroken underneath
The farther off and already it just might make the life I lead
A little more than make-believe when all my skies are painted blue
And the clouds don't ever change the shape of who I am to You

I'm waiting for the world to fall
I'm waiting for the scene to change
I'm waiting when the colors come
I'm waiting to let my world come undone

time after time.

If you're lost you can look and you will find me
Time after time
If you fall I will catch you, I'll be waiting
Time after time
If you fall I will catch you, I'll be waiting
Time after time
Time after time

time after time, dearest friend. :)
