i want change.

and therefore i'm moving.

this blog is generating too much traffic from the HKU/NUS MBBS interview post and I need more privacy XD

therefore i'm moving to a tumblr site.

The Happiness Project. (or so it will be named for the time being.) 

you cant really post comments unless you have an account in tumblr but I guess that doesnt really matter =)

It's sad to say goodbye but a drastic change needs drastic measures... see you at the other end of the rainbow!

Monday, February 7

We laughed, we cried, and then we grew up.

Despite the countless obstacles, our college gang finally met up, though the only-half-of-the-group-showed-up gathering only lasted barely 4 hours.

We went back to our old college and saw Mr Lau (maths), Mr Nava (physics AS sem 2), Mr Yeoh (physics A2) and we wanted to listen to Mr Lau's lecture but us barging into the class was simply too obvious although I didn't mind doing it cause we already have a bad reputation in college

We ate at Inti Cafeteria. The nasi lemak was still RM 1 and spicy. We met a fake Lihyi who had almost the same haircut, same bell-sleeved shirt who brought her own lunch. We spotted some familiar faces; the lab assistant, our bio teacher's archenemy, and some lookalikes from our old days in college.

For a moment I felt alive again.

Where I lived in a world with my own rules. Where people's opinions about what I did, what I wore, what I said didn't matter anymore because I had a group of friends who accepted my loudness and lack of subtlety.

But living abroad (in fact leaving college) has given me enough lessons that the world can be evil, it can be pretentious, it can be selfish. In fact it's brimming with so much lies it's so hard to spot sheer honesty.

But I strongly believe that no matter how badly the world treats me, I will not turn into one of those backstabbing, hatred filled, self centred people, even if it hurts me.

I will keep on fighting, keep on falling, and keep on getting up.

Because I know that when I can take it no more, I'll have my true friends to hang on to.

Thank you for everything =)

new year, new start.

Happy CNY everyone!

crap i'll be spending only one week in malaysia, and the sad truth is i'll probably spend most of the time working on my caduceus (ed board) article or study the pile of lecture notes i brought back OR research on what possible SSMs I can do.

The SEATRU (turtle conservation project) was already fully booked when i tried to sign up today at midnight! (which was supposedly when the registration opened!! wthhhh) check out the website here:

I don't care. I will apply again next year. >.<

but anyway I have to think of something else to do for SSM then? anyone have any 2-4 weeks volunteering ideas around Malaysia or overseas?

Oh ya I just submitted my application for AIDS Awareness Raising Project 2011 in Henan.

BUT i very well might not get it as I barely have any volunteering experience but oh well we'll see =)

exhausted! gonna sleep now and embrace the most comfy bed in the world <3

what i want and making people happy

blending in and having more time for myself

moving on and turning back

personal goals and to strive for a higher purpose

basically means

i'm stuck between

studying and not studying. the essence of a medical student's life.

thankfully i will be heading back msia soon! to be reminded of how it feels like to live a life outside hall, med campus and getting my head buried in food instead of Gray's or Robbins all the time >.<

missing you

came across this image SH edited and slipped into my pen drive before she returned it to me right before I left to HK.

I never knew how much I actually enjoyed my college days until the time I went back msia during winter break. During those 2 weeks, I would laugh till I cried, shout till my voice turned hoarse and I wasn't being afraid of saying/doing the wrong thing. I could be myself and not worry about the implications it would bring because people around me were so REAL.

And though nothing can ever be the same, I'm glad to have this 1 and a half years worth of sweet memories.

I LOVE YOU NG SUAT HOON <3 and mama kk ly bs wy cc thboy hl!!!

now i've come to realise the challenges of studying med.

it's the fact that you can never EVER study enough. After some gruelling lessons on physiology of the lung that require SO much digestion, I'm having the most mentally taxing PBL sessions twice a week where my PBL groupmates look to Level one or two evidence to complete their learning objectives. And that makes me the google and wikipedia-er wayyy more inferior. And I just spent 4 hours looking through medical journals to complete my learning objectives which were just epidemiology and risk factors for asthma. WTH???!!!!

i definitely need to redefine "diligence" and "efficiency" in my dictionary.

me me me me me me me me me

sometimes i just wished that i could pluck a hair out of my head, blow it and it'll turn into 100 more tzehui's.

cause I'm just SO bad at multitasking.

perfectly lonely

This epitomises how I feel right now, and the good news is I'm totally alright with it =)

Wednesday, January 5

wake me up when winter ends

although the average temp of HK during winter is around 10 degrees, it is already killing me.

I think i'm stuck with the choice of getting a heater or hibernating throughout Respiratory Block (we're doing resp and cardiovascular block this sem)

I think i'm getting a heater.
