Happy Mother's Day!

After reading Lennon's facebook note about her mom, I suddenly felt a pang of emptiness...


This shows how much I miss mom :(

I also miss my godmom very much :(
I am also very grateful to my Dr Aunty. She has been taking good care of mom and I :) Sadly, I do not own a photo of her.

They are special women in my life. No one could have substituted their position in my heart!
And of course, they are great moms!

Thanks for being there for me and make me who I am today!

在母亲的眼中
孩子无论当上了总统
还是在农田里劳动
总会为他们骄傲

在孩子的心中
母亲无论珠光宝气
还是衣衫褴褛
总是那样美丽

前呼后拥的赞誉中
永远听不见母亲的声音
漫漫人生的长途上
母亲的叮咛从未离去

最该记住的总是最易忘记
谁还记得母乳的甜蜜
可每一个母亲都不会
把孩子的第一声啼哭忘记

历史记下了你的名字
民众传扬着你的业绩
然而只有母亲的心
永远和你在一起



Lots of hugs and love to three of you!
xoxo

Birthday celebration in advance

Oh well, 22 years have since passed since mom brought me to the world. I feel a bit old, especially when I saw the first years passing by in Uni.

The celebration with Jun Ren, Adriel and Ryan was supposed to be on the coming friday, but since Adriel had long since forgotten his birthday and preferred to study for his test on next monday, we called really late last night to J's surf n turf to pre-order some fresh oysters.

Facebooks photos for the buffet

Little did we know that not even one of us like oysters very much. Initially, I ended up gobbling down 5 but there were 2 dozens ordered! Adriel suggested us to play adding the numbers game to decide the next person to have one. And he ended up having 5! All the time, Jun Ren did not even lose once until the last 2 rounds. The final score was Me: Ryan: Jun Ren: Adriel=7:7:5:5. The power of probability and random selection!

The food was good and we have a good catch up session with 2 of our dearest friends in Uni.

Side note: I have just gotten my Nokia 6210 Navigator. It's awesome! Camera's good and besides the slight lag when I first switched it on, it's been doing its job^^

Pain in the neck!


Who could have guessed that I will wake up one day finding my neck incredibly stiff?

Almost everyone asked, "What were you doing?"
My med buddies asked, "OMG, do you have meningitis?" I would answer,"Negative Kernig's sign!Afebrile too ^^."

And no one could have predicted that the pain actually lasted for 4 days!
I recovered on day 3. However, I was stupid enough to fall too hard into the chair and sprained it AGAIN !!!

The pain was so excruciating that I had to skip wardround and hospital on friday.
I went to see the local GP just to find out that he is our 'super senior', having graduated in 1986! LOL...

The GP said, " There is some inflammation of the facet joints and trapezius." And he precribed some Flenac to me...at least that helped..not like panadol

Trying to walk with my neck straight today...LOL..
