yet another rejection

wahahahaha, thank u Edinburgh for REJECTING me

it's ok everyone, dont have to console me. i'm ok. dont f***ing care. nothing can spoil my Easter holiday mood.heez.

left Liverpool
2 down 1 up left 1 to go

******************************************************************************
watched a few episode of Grey's Anatomy. hmm, found it quite interesting, surprise surprise, coz tv series and Ing is like two North poles - they repel each other. never had the patience to sit through any. shall watch the whole thing during summer hol.

could really feel the pressure on a fresh medical intern when faced with an emergency case for the first time from the scene where Alice had hers. all the nurses, staffs, medical officer screaming at you for instructions, your head is spinning, and u try to calm down while having to make a prompt decision of an appropriate step. 1 minute's delay could cost someone's life. there's no room for mistakes. it's no longer a simulated situation, it's a LIFE & DEAD situation.

my god, this is damn daunting.

and the part where the resident barked : "the first person the patients see early in the morning is you. You greet them good morning and apologised for waking them up at 4 am. why?to make them feel GOOD. now why is that important? so that they will talk to you. why is that impt? so that you can pick up important informations from their conversations.

i think a doctors work is just like a detective's. u pry for medical history, for bits of pieces of their life style that may be a factor to their ailments that will eventually lead to a diagnosis. coz depending solely on medical examinations is not always enough and the high tech imaging machines and typical-in-the-textbook-checkups have their limitations too.

Bat Kut Teh肉骨茶

Chef Vivien striking a chef-like post, imitating chef wan? went to town this morning to shop for the ingredients. loads of garlic, dark &light soy sauce, oyster sauce, somen (noodles). since viv regards pork meat as "dirty" , she decided to swap lamb with the usual pork.

BAT KUT TEH~~!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!*scream* any malaysian will go wobbly in the knees and drool at the mere mention of it. love ya viv for cooking for us=)seems like there's bat kut teh fever recently here. sarah cooked for her friends last week too.i can only describe it with 3 words :
delicious, delicious, DELICIOUS!!!!
never knew viv is such a great cook (coz she rarely cooks, no chance to judge) she used3 packets of the herbs. i think the lamb did the trick too, the soup was really thick and the new way of eating it as soup based noodle is kinda special too.

pity only got one serving coz had to share among 6 people.i licked the very last drop off my bowl.
apparently the Sabah bat kut teh is different from the ones in Penang. theirs only consist of the herbal soup and pork meat. Penang's offers meatballs, vegetables, mushroom, golden needle mushroom(?). eat with yam rice.but i think keeping it simple made the lamb meat stood out.

was explaining the origin of bat kut teh to my vietnamese pig wife, came across it in an article back in malaysia :

in the olden days,our chinese ancestors who came to work as gu li (workers) would collect fragments of herbal medicine dropped from the cartons of herbs they carried to shops and brewed it with pork. they found the resulting cuisine tasty and this became the famous bat kut teh.

我最要好的朋友
我第一次一个人在草原上
边走边哭

妳说要我做回自己
我听了
妳又说我最近变得好多
妳一下子接受不了
一直说以前的我不是这样的

我不想再伪装自己
我不是个完美的好人
最难过的是应该最了解我的人不能接受真我

连我自己都不知自己是谁
怎样才是真我

肯定的是
我真的很用心在对妳
妳累了
我也好累

harrassment

waited for Vivien coz she had a 7.20pm lesson today
i've heard tales of my college mates being harrassed by young brits while walking on the streets when it's dark. i've also had my fair shares of being shouted at back when i lived in Calderfield, a hostel that is 15 minutes away from my college.

a 10 year old-ish kid once threw a coke can at us while we're on the pavement.
some nuts screamed at us when they drove past
another lady shouted " MOVE!!!" , well we deserved that coz we were blocking the road. she then doubled back and went "speak in english! ur in england now!!!"
since then i always move aside and let the ang mors pass whenever i sense any is behind me.

there's this gang of bullies lurking around, and one of my friends happened to fall prey on her way back from town.

then today on my way to St Geo, this group of five 13, 14 teens just came up to us. i was scared k? they asked us" what is the meaning of ni3 shi4 wa2 wa1"你是娃娃"?"

i had to answer them coz if i dont, i'm sure i would have been a meat pie now, not in one piece, typing furiously on my laptop.

" it means that u are a doll, d.o.l.l doll."

"we were called that just now"

"oh, that was meant to be a compliment" *under my breathe : FUCK which ever asian who told them that, dont get me into trouble coz of what u said*

one of the kido waved his index finger menacingly at me then snapped at my cheek *gulp* i tried to act as calm as i could managed to fake.

but anyway, thank god nothing happened.

to my friends in Malaysia who always say u envy me for having the chance of studying overseas, the racist problem here is way serious. i swear i will return to my tanah air once i graduate. sometimes i feel we msian chinese are so pitiful, we seem to be homeless, belonging to nowhere. anywhere we go, we'll always be 2nd class. sigh.

Culture Day Performance

Vivien 说是特地为我而唱的(虽然感谢词提到好多人),今天五点一放学就去抢个第一排的好位子,要帮她录影。可是超过10Mb,上载不到you tube,不能post ahhh

给她做了V.I.V.I.E.N的banner,请Lily帮我找六个人挥,给她打气。

真的很感动,
她一进场我就很像个骄傲的母亲一直在笑。
按下录影的按钮后,
将视线抽离照相机,
望着她,她也望着我,好像现场就只有我俩

歌唱到一半
我真的忍不住开始哭了起来
边拍边哭
呃...
很款哦!!!真的很有rock feel~有Luke钢琴伴奏,Jason吉他

很勇敢哦,献词时声音一直抖
但还是坚持讲到完
"I want to dedicate this song to Dearest God
to my beloved granpa who passed away last year
to my family
to all my fellow friends especially to Ing, Li, Lily, May, To Linh, Luke, Jason, Mc and Panda.
I love you guys.

Thanks very much to my best friend. You know who you are. I love you. Even though as a companion I know that I am not good enough anyway you are my special, unique and extraordinary friend.

And also to Luke and Jason as accompaniment. "

Vivien, I'm so PROUD of you,我引你为容

Your Song
It's a little bit funny this feeling inside
I'm not one of those who can easily hide
I don't have much money but boy if I did
I'd buy a big house where we both could live

If I was a sculptor, but then again, no
Or a man who makes potions in a travelling show
I know it's not much but it's the best I can do
My gift is my song and this one's for you
And you can tell everybody this is your song

It may be quite simple but now that it's done
I hope you don't mindI hope you don't mind
that I put down in words
How wonderful life is while you're in the world

I sat on the roof and kicked off the moss
Well a few of the verses well they've got me quite cross
But the sun's been quite kind while I wrote this song
It's for people like you that keep it turned on

So excuse me forgetting but these things I do
You see I've forgotten if they're green or they're blue
Anyway the thing is what I really mean
Yours are the sweetest eyes I've ever seen
And you can tell everybody this is your song

It may be quite simple but now that it's done
I hope you don't mind I hope you don't mind
that I put down in words
How wonderful life is while you're in the world

要毕业咯...

这几天心情有点低落...
在Bosworth的日子,只剩三个月
真正上课的天数..8个礼拜
当初刚来,
恨不得毕业那天的到来
恨不得早日踏入大学的门府
现在好舍不得
好舍不得Vivien, May, Linh(pig wife),爱睡猪...
好多好多美好的回忆
好想时间就这么样停下来
