too much sometimes for me.

been pretty much hating everything else that's going on in my life, but times spent with friends from school have been a welcome escape. bowling at marina south with the 3stanis and LBBC and later watching suri and baos battle each other at para-para was good old fun.

and TK will be back in about ten days. :) always... a constant need to have something look forward to, before i melt into a little pathetic puddle of self-pity.

tiredbean speaks.

aye. the last exam of 2006 is over! i don't really know what to make of today's papers... but nevermind about that, am soooo thrilled about being able to take a breather. and finally being able to watch tv without feeling like i have something else more important i should be doing. we've been studying for a solid six weeks already (longer if you started before the one week break)... and putting other things on hold, like actually having a life, for instance.

lunch with liwei, marky, huilins, joel, william, zhenjin and jerry was fun! medicine is a good place to be.

pigs are undeniably one of the cutest animals!

ohhhh and i adore the beanie baby snowman alvin and joshua gave me! shall name him "milou" which is snowy's french name. (snowy from herge's tintin comics!)

just two more weeks of school, then it's off to taiwan with TK and his family. december holds much to look forward to.

twenty is the magical number.

If I could reach the stars I'd pull one down for you
Shine it on my heart so you could see the truth
That this love I have inside is everything it seems
But for now I find it's only in my dreams

That I can change the world
I would be the sunlight in your universe
You will think my love was really something good
Baby if I could change the world

it's been a nice, contemplative birthday... peppered with phonecalls from various friends, a short visit from celene and joel, and a sumptuous dinner to boot.

i shall greedily hope that all i've wished for will come true... and that things will get better, on a whole.

here's to a different year of life.

and i love all of you dearly, you know.

red letter day!

awwww. :) thank you so much for the pre-birthday surprise! and for coming in my favourite colour too... and not telling me! it was such a smilifying, happifying thing! it's really comforting and encouraging to know i have you all in medical school. here's to many more years of fun, laughter and friendship!

harcs! i'm holding the same piece of cake in the almost all the photos.

with kaizhi.

with joel. thank you for pigs on parade!

78 club members, pangs, ronnie, wenyang and xuamy. the two future cg mates on the right!

my girl huilins!

with yarms and suri.

rose anne!

3stan buddies!

aileeny. :)

and everyone! yay! you guys made me one happy camper today. haha, looking at zhenjin in this shot cracks me up because he was wearing eugene's jacket to look red. (thank you joel for the photos!)

someone's back... hairyanne leow yong cui, the vet to be! we look so terribly awkward here. it was so nice to know that i guessed marcus's "surprise that will make you very happy" correctly.

and thank you dear, for the small but sentimental surprise in a box. :) it isn't even friday yet, and i already feel so lucky.

Ships that pass in the night, and speak each other in passing;
Only a signal shown and a distant voice in the darkness;
So on the ocean of life we pass and speak one another,
Only a look and a voice; then darkness again and a silence.

two random photos, and then some.

early morning canteen sitting-around with jianping, huilin and andrew leong. and a whole bunch of other people, 3stan, the MTG (morning talk-cock gang), 78 club members, yadda...

joshua being very kind and comforting during our PDCP lesson in which we had a simulated patient-doctor meeting. that's aileen in the foreground.

watched casino royale today to get away from the books... i must say i can't really judge bond films since i'm not quite the fan. the plot lost me at certain points, hoho.

well it's back to the grind again. can't quite complain now, c'est la vie. at least the exams will end soon enough, and december shall be welcomed splendidly.

been up all night, staring at you.

after one and a half years in medical school, i already knew and understood that things were getting weird. what i didn't predict was myself screaming "bloody flavivirus, don't bite me!" at this mosquito buzzing around my head last night.

guitar lesson was fun, hadn't talked to ais properly in a while. :)

Been up all night, staring at you
Wondering what's on your mind
I've been this way with so many before
But this feels like the first time
You want the sunrise to go back to bed
I want to make you laugh

our winter.

And I remember the sound
Of your November downtown,
And I remember the truth,
A warm December with you,
But I don't have to make this mistake,
And I don't have to stay this way
If only I would wake

oh, to fall in love with a voice. :)

exam season! neuroscience was alright, cofm felt like alot of skirting/ smoking around the questions. microbiology and immunology is filling my head with little random bits of information that may or may not be significant...

my social life has gone down the drain. facebooking has become a welcome pastime for immensely bored m2s.

things and plans, on the other hand, have been happifying.

am i back?

what was my strange month-long disappearance about?

... huh?

irrelevance! now that the kaoshis have once more descended upon us tired medical students.
