die sony, die.

extremely irritated with sony now. my camera died, just five days after i retrieved it from cleaning and checking. tried using it for the first time since that day, and i realised i couldn't take any photos. and worse still, they didn't even bother to clean it properly. i had to pick up the sand bits myself. my trip to europe is in two weeks' time. die sony, die. i think i've visited sony at least 5 times for repairs since i bought this camera in 2004.

that being said, i still love my camera. it's been to countless hwa chong events, it's gone to switzerland and china (twice!) and it's accompanied me on various lazy, hazy day outs. through repairs and re-repairs, it has worked well at the correct moments so far.

well, sony must still die. the digicam division, at least.

but nothing, absolutely nothing could spoil my day out with my girl vi today. :) it was great catching up!

strange deja vu.

hallo. i love you shaunie and marcus. :)

happy twentieth birthday to my husband at forty! though you probably won't be reading this anytime soon.

advanced theory test!

aye, i failed. suspect i'll take a very long time to learn how to drive.

and recent events have reminded me again that i am perhaps not such a nice person, though i really don't mean to be like that. my decisions have been wonky lately, and i would like to say they're not my own... yet, how can i deny all involvement? sigh, i'm sorry.

matt pond pa.

I saw a modest dream
The kind that can't speak up
And lost before it's let out
In the north we hold our tongues

But down here I believe
When you pull your hair back it's so easy to see
This has not been thought through
There are things that we've done that we cannot undo
There are things i can't hear when we're telling the truth

At a table out in Bethel
When I was thirteen
The criminals were saying
Liked how I was silent

The cold was the container
For the sparseness of our speech
The expression in our hands
Was all that we'd need

But down here I believe
That I made a big deal with a girl that can't bleed
Now I see red and black
An evening that kills, I want to take it back
An evening that kills and I can't take it back

top of the M.

with lynette, sauyee and dr. leong! :) the setting was perfect, the view from singapore's highest revolving restaurant (oh my!) stunning.

me with my rack of lamb.

view of orchard road, badly taken with my phone camera. the sony camera i usually use is still under repair.

sauyee, all pretty in white.

a three-man band played love, me by colin raye and paint my love by michael learns to rock for us.

with dr. leong, a great mentor and friend to have.

obligatory shot of ourselves in the toilet mirror. am thankful that these girls are my fellow mentees, and that dr. leong is our mentor. :) wonderful company and freely flowing conversation made for a very enjoyable dinner tonight.

stick wit ewe.

i will perhaps never listen to bbmak's back here the same way again.

3stanis and medfac associates, it's been one great year. :)

couldn't do without. :)

My heart's at a low
I'm so much to manage
I think you should know that
I've been damaged
I'm falling in love
There's one disadvantage
I think you should know that
I've been damaged

i'm so glad you're here with me in medical school. couldn't do without you, you, you, you, you and you. :)

i haven't been articulating my thoughts properly, perhaps i just can't. not here at least. i just don't want my blog to turn too teenagey and angsty, because i'm not really like that, am i?

and so everyone can enjoy a little TLC, here's damaged, from the album 3D.

dear lie.

just get it over and done with. i promise to be happy for you.

we've got the blues.

school-induced! happy pre-birthday dinner, my girl. :)

this is so reminiscent. and so sad, that lisa "left eye" lopez has since passed away. no girl group comes close to TLC's talent or ability to make you really feel their lyrics. unpretty, all girls feel like that sometime.

I wish I could tie you up in my shoes
Make you feel unpretty too
I was told I was beautiful
But what does that mean to you
Look into the mirror who’s inside there
The one with the long hair
Same old me again today

My outsides look cool
My insides are blue
Everytime I think I’m through
It’s because of you
I’ve tried different ways
But it’s all the same
At the end of the day
I have myself to blame
I’m just trippin’

You can buy your hair if it won’t grow
You can fix your nose if he says so
You can buy all the make-up that MAC can make
But if you can’t look inside you
Find out who am I, too
Be in a position to make me feel so damn unpretty

and something happifying i found. parts of the brain, by the brain!

you are the one and i can't let you go.

dinner at breko's. kaizhi's house. destiny's child live in atlanta. transamerica. 3am milo dinosaur and prata opposite beauty world. cruising down the highway in bao's car with the wind in our hair. blasting 'n sync, bbmak and more music from the 1990s. east coast park, pre-sunrise. learning to dance. sleep. hotcakes at serene centre macs. taking 855 home with aileen and rose. learning about life and love.

Baby set me free from this misery
I can't take it no more
Since you went away nothing's been the same
Don't know what I'm living for
Here I am so alone
And there's nothing in this world I can do

Until you're back here baby
Miss you, want you, need you so
Until you're back here baby, yeah
There's a feeling inside I want you to know
You are the one and I can't let you go

a night to remember with some of my very best friends in medical school. :)

two days ago, i experienced a strong urge to slap my friend, zhuang hui wu. :) i lament the fact that this is currently impossible as he isn't in singapore. there, a blog entry dedicated to you!

had nice day out yesterday with ivy, visiting doctors at SGH and shopping! i bought this elephant pendant from swarovski! 'twas a pity the lucky pig pendants were sold out. in the evening, we had dinner with ningqi, wenyang and alvin. the europe group is leaving in just two weeks! i'm excited for them already, but i have to wait till june. :)
here i am in the medical students' lounge next to alex who is sleeping soundly. we're going down to TTSH to meet ningyi soon. and tonight, dinner with the 3stanis!
okaaaay this was a rather silly blog entry. the afternoon sun is scorching!

completely random picture post.

the wonders of photo editing! what alex and photoshop can do.

rose anne at liquid kitchen, upper thomson road.

xuamy and i at the science centre last tuesday. spot the ryan!

vi and ku at boat quay the saturday before.

with yemily, hemily on the day we went shopping for hon's present.

slowly walking down the hall, faster than a cannonball.

liquid kitchen, high and running wild. just one night out of the many gray, drab ones.

when you think about true friendship, you realise it's so much more than just getting along. there's an obvious connection, a special affinity, an ability to say "hey, i could talk to you all day."

you two have been my friends in medical school, and i couldn't be more grateful. :)

wow, look at you, flowers in the window.

yet, even as i am unhappy, there are the most wonderful people on earth who make things a little brighter and better.

2 weeks to chen's concert, good luck you! and 5 weeks to europe. counting down the days.

Things without all remedy
Should be without regard; what ’s done is done.

i've come to realise that good days almost never happen in sequence for me. the beautiful things in life, they spread themselves out so we'll really see their worth.

tagged along as alex and christine (fourth and fifth year medical students now) coached ningyi and jialin (freshly minted third-years) for their elementary clinics at NUH. my lymph nodes were palpated! and erm, there has been a slight increase in my clinically-related knowledge since august last year, when i first started medical school. i'm happy to be here. :)

stevie wonder.

You are the sunshine of my life
That's why I'll always stay around

You are the apple of my eye

Forever you'll stay in my heart
