Goodbye and Hello

31 December 2006

It’s the time of the year again, to say goodbye and hello, in the same breath.
2006 has been a year of changes for me. To be honest, I spent the first half of the year doing a little labwork, a little data entry and a lot of lazing around. The choice to stay in […]

Growing Up

26 December 2006

I’ve been home slightly over a week and will be leaving again in exactly a week’s time (sigh…). This past week, I’ve been meeting up with family and friends. (To anyone who is interested, my books are out of my luggage, and have been sitting on my table for the past week, unopened.)
A cousin commented […]

Jumping on the bandwagon

25 December 2006

It seems like every other blogger has a Merry Christmas message on his/her blog, and I’m taking on the “people have I also must have” attitude.
So here goes…
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year, everyone!!!
This time of the year hasn’t changed much since I first stepped into med school (only exception being last year). I’m […]

Loyal Follower

22 December 2006

I am pretty sure I’ve got a loyal follower, a stalker, a fan. He goes everywhere I go, and falls all over the place for me. That sick fella tries constantly to get me wet, but the thing is, he gets me all irritated and frustrated and I think one day I’ll get sick because […]

Best Place On Earth…

18 December 2006

…is always home. :)
And yeah, after long crazy journey, I’m HOME!!! Wheee!!!
The journey was crazy, alright. I flew from Belfast to Heathrow, Heathrow to Paris and finally, Paris to Singapore. I’m fine with transits, what was really frustrating was the long queues in Heathrow. I landed in Heathrow at about 2.30pm, next flight was […]

Countdown III: Down to the hours

16 December 2006

Almost there, almost there… in fact, in 12 hours time, I will be on my first of three flights. My luggage is all packed and ready to go. Just need to put this MBP into her sleeve and her cable into my bag and we’re good to go.
At least Zen can’t say she hate me […]

Looking through another’s eye

11 December 2006

Surprisingly, I find opthalmology a lot more interesting than dermatology and ENT. The slit lamp is fun and most of the time, I can see what the opthalmologist wants me to see. And when there’s a corneal abrasion or a corneal epithelial defect of some sort, having it look back at me, nice, bright and […]

Countdown II

10 December 2006

Down to 7…

Food Fridays

9 December 2006

For the past 2 weeks, it seems like Fridays = Food. Yesterday, someone from the high com in London came down and we had dinner at an Indian restaurant. Food was pretty good, and I tried kulfi for the very first time. No pictures from that dinner because it just didn’t seem right to be […]

Bow wow wow

9 December 2006

I tried to start work on my essay… and was researching on the topic on the internet when I found myself taking silly tests. Apparently, I’m a German Shepherd Puppy. Woof!

You Are a German Shepherd Puppy

Intelligent, quick witted, and a bit aggressive.
You’ve got the jaw power to take a bite out of anyone you choose.

What […]


8 December 2006

I’ve got a week of clinic/wards/theatre and an essay to hand in before I go home next Saturday. The only problem is that I have not started on the essay.
I am sooooo dead.


3 December 2006

Fast forward exactly 14 days…
It will be 6.26am, I’ll be in bed. Not just any random beds, mind you, my own bed. I’ll most probably wake up to a breakfast of nasi lemak, or mee siam, or lontong… with a variety of nonya kueh or otah-otah… and I’ll be able to wash them all down […]
