to a mouse.

But Mousie, thou are no thy-lane,
In proving foresight may be vain:
The best laid schemes o' Mice an' Men,
Gang aft agley,
An' lea'e us nought but grief an' pain,
For promis'd joy!

reading john steinbeck's book still gets me with a lump in my throat at the end...

it was the afternoon heat. and how i felt at the time.

hand. soap. neat.

a clinician's HAT trick to good patient management. gotta love the posters at TTSH!

will actually miss being at TTSH quite a bit, methinks. i've enjoyed the hustle and bustle in the day, the peace and quiet in the evenings, the thrilling rush that is the A&E department at night. discounted mr bean cheese pancakes too.

and of course, team cg 17 power! :)

i haven't seen so many of you in ages-est. miss you all - 3stanis, OG mates, medfac associates!

fear of needles.

wenyang, xuamy and i finally sat down and drew blood from each other, with success! i have a nice tube of my own blood now... which i'm keeping.

sorry dear cg mate, i wasn't a very helpful patient, making so much noise about the pain.

in other news, CSFC is ending in just two and a half weeks... i'm still blur and unsure about so many things. oh no. :x

over the weekend was huilin's lovely 21st birthday party! YAY! i know it's not your real birthday yet, but here's wishing you a beautiful year ahead, and many happy returns! love you hunny. thanks for being my friend. :)

a bad scare today.

i didn't know how certain symptoms could be important, and now i know that they're significant, and should not be overlooked.

and now, i kinda know how it feels to not know, and how scary it can be.

little women and little men.

i remember watching this scene between jo and laurie in the theatre when the movie was out in 1995... and having my heart break into a thousand little pieces. she rejected laurie, her best friend from her childhood. laurie who was so stubborn and impetuous, yet loved her so much.

the nice thing is, she did marry whom she truly loved in the end. :)

sunday supper club.

zj is obsessed with sex?!

don't see you guys so often anymore, with joel and zj at SGH and rose at NUH... so always happy to meet up. :) the vietnam trip in june should be much fun, no?

as an aside, all our thoughts, wants and wishes... our secret insecurities and fears have to take the backseat now, as life (hospital life too) calls for us to be more matured and independent.

and things change. inevitably.

with a little bit of luck.

today was an A+ day! my first time wearing scrubs and observing surgery (laser excision of penile wart) with sudipta although we didn't scrub up completely (gown, gloves, yadda.) here i am with my cg mates wenyang and xuamy, who are smiling through their masks. (i had thrown mine away already.)

and we've found two angels of sorts in the wards... angels who appear just when we need them and who have the ability to make the day that much easier.

dinner with the family! ningyi and ningqi.

christine. :)

and the newly-minted dr. wong! wowww. we were all in awe of his new title and name tag.

le resultants out tomorrow! gosh. may things go alright, i pray.
