Spent the weekend away from home with these wonderful people who’ve known me for ages, friends who have been with me through college, uni, a few relationships, Europe trips..
Met Ck!to think that he used to live 2 floors above me back in Ukraine.he had a habit of going downstairs to the kiosk to buy a carton of milk every night and on the way up he usually pops by my room..sometimes we checkout pretty girls on friendster-that’s me layaning him, sometimes we watch horror movies, because I’ll never watch a horror movie on my own >.< and sometimes we just gossip about whatever happened in class..we went grocery shopping together when I was living alone, and always ate out because he's such a foodie, always craving for something fancy. I'm missing my favourite fish pasta from topor restaurant as I type he's a friend I'm perfectly comfortable with, a friend who has seen me at my worst and yet didn't
And as usual Jing,vv and Cheryl were there to welcome me, there to stand by me when I needed them, they know all my weaknesses and despite that still love me. I stayed a night with my cousin, and she brought me to see a wise elderly lady who told me alot about myself and my life.
A weekend away did me me a lot of good.I felt liberated, and realized that being alone is not so scary after all. I value my independence, and I know someday I’ll be able to embrace the freedom that I’m given.. even though it happened at a time I least expected. But that’s how life is, not everything will turn out as you expected, not everyone will stay with you till the end, and adversities come as they please without warning. The only thing within our control are the choices that we make.
I choose to be happy.
And to cherish the people who didn’t leave when I needed them most.
Though miles may lie between us we are never far apart, for friendship don’t count miles it is measured by the heart
the breakfast that we planned for changed to lunch because Chen had church service, and it was probably a good thing because i arrived late *guilty* woke up at 12.30, double checked the presents for everyone and rewrapped some, changed into a dress..decided i looked too fat for the dress,changed out of the dress into shorts and my new topshop+cotton tank top..dashed out of the house, had to settle with Liev (my dog) running around before driving out..picking suyi up and then struggling with the queue for parking when we finally reached Empire. So we were late *oops* sorry gals! really am..
had the English breakfast..which comes with 2 eggs cooked the way you like it, and 2 choices of other stuffs and i picked beef bacon and chicken sausages.the portions are generous and it even comes with a glass of fresh juice (you can pick the one you want) and coffee. i had orange juice and cappuccino. love everything on that plate. but it would be awesome if the eggs are served warmer.
had a long chat over our breakfast-at-lunch, chen,sj and fan tried the angel hair paella. and it was so great catching up with everyone :)then we had our present exchange.i hope everyone liked what i picked for them 🙂 i miss spending time chatting and laughing with all my girls, and im glad we are able to meet up for xmas even though everyone kinda has their own plans. shopped around abit after that.and made an appointment for body massage at Thai Odessey for tomorrow.
am currently waiting for mrF to reach home, he’s on passive call tonight and was at the hosp with his phone off and un-switchable his iphone’s lifespan is definitely getting shorter as we speak and we are still contemplating making the switch to iphone 4.
that’s the Christmas weekend for me, hope you had an enjoyable one too
had a chat over uhrm.. char kuey teow at Empire hotel, subang a few weeks ago with Limun.
love the wood panelled ceilings.. the waveline design is so pretty
limun is actually holding my drink, hehe. it was the cranberry splash. the orange swirly drink is hers, very yummy
new dress new dress ❤
soft and fluffy in the inside with just the right amount of crunch on the outside..
an explosion of sour, sweet and salty flavours in your mouth
it was better than what we expected from a lobby lounge, and i had to have it because i had an explicable craving for it
cheers to our friendship 🙂
i’m always hitching a ride home with limun these days. saves time because she leaves earlier than my dad can pick me up (why my dad is still sending me to work is another story i’ll save for another day) i know i’m such a big baby, ahaha but anyway i digress. met limun when we were both still juniors, doing our second posting in Obs & Gyn, laboured through our labour ward posting together and with Grace. 2 months in labour ward was bearable because of them, even though we spent our time surrounded with the cries of mom to be, the cries of babies just delivered and of course the stench of amniotic fluid… it was actually fun. i would’ve been in orthopedic posting with limun again, and im sure if im, we would be having alot of fun.. but i decided to take a leap of faith and go for anesthesiology instead. so now we spend our time mainly gossiping on the way home beating the traffic jam, and sometimes having drinks outside.
i was telling limun about how my parents mentioned that they regretted sending me to ukraine for 6 long years, so faraway alone.. and how if i really ended up in NUI, Galway, chances are i might still be there and wouldn’t have come home for housemanship. then i would meet limun or falah. this is how my life was supposed to be i guess. not ending up in Ireland, and now im home. fell in love, working my ass off, and of course.. met someone who turned out to be a very good friend.
retail therapy works. especially when its a pair of 4.8 inches come fuck me heels..
and then some tops
