You're so beautiful, with an edge and a charm...

Lost In Translation.

Calling up Japanese guesthouses... Oh my, quite a riot. Still so many things to prepare, but Nippon, Nippon on Tuesday!

Why does this song (and 陶喆 songs in general) remind me of Hwa Chong? :)

"I keep thinking about this river somewhere, with the water moving really fast. And these two people in the water, trying to hold onto each other, holding on as hard as they can, but in the end it's just too much. The current's too strong. They've got to let go, drift apart. That's how it is with us. It's a shame, Kath, because we've loved each other all our lives. But in the end, we can't stay together forever."
- from Never Let Me Go, by Kazuo Ishiguro

Nuovo Cinema Paradiso.

I love the magic of films, how they transport you into a different world and time. Giuseppe Tornatore's Cinema Paradiso (1988) has poignantly captured a young Italian boy's love of cinema through an epic friendship and a timeless love story.
The music is by the prolific Ennio Morricone, and is gorgeous, a major reason why I enjoyed the film so much. The ending is perhaps one of the most beautiful scenes I've ever watched, and has a lovely significance to the themes of the film.



My thoughts go back to the examination rooms, NUH Clinic A on 4 Sept and Day Surg OT on 11 Sept. The cold, twisted feeling in my heart as I waited to be called. Relaxing, de-relaxing depending on the situation. Praying for a clear mind and calm heart. Going in not really knowing what to expect.
It's all over now. Grateful for all that I have right now and what I have achieved in the past few months. Including... learning to drive and MBBS. :) And grateful for the people who have come into my life along the way.
Yesterday would have been Mom's 59th birthday. She would be happy to receive my good news, I know. I still think of that quote from The Time Traveler's Wife... "I love you always. Time is nothing." The morning before she went into a coma, I told her that we would love each other forever, and that we would definitely meet again. Time is nothing, as love is timeless.
New challenges lie ahead, and I hope I am up for them.

Did not take this photo (of Bibimbap). Yummy Korean food with Em and Rose tonight. Love the cold noodles at Kim's Family Restaurant, Upper Bukit Timah Road.

Michael Caine looks cautious, fearful.

P.S. Exams are over!

:( Sigh not a good feeling post-exams. Now to pick myself up for Surg!

The Last September.

September, a special month for me. Mom's birthday spent being admitted to hospital, Mom's passing four days later.

The month of my MBBS this year. Will I pass? :/ I want to have good news for my family members so badly.
