I got a text from a friend saying she had safely delivered a baby boy. A few weeks prior, I got to know through fb that another friend gave birth to a baby boy. Months before that a good friend called to inform me that she's pregnant.
Today, a childhood friend called to ask something regarding her antenatal check-up...
Today, I got to know a high-school friend is getting married in a month's time.
In January 2011, there will be another wedding to attend in Ipoh.
Lovely isn't it? It feels like there are a lot of love rainbows around ♥
If you're wondering what's the meaning of Japanese lyrics I put last week, here is the (romaji) and translation.
(boku ga eranda mainichi na noni mayottari hekonde mitari)
(shashin no naka no mujaki na boku wa hatashite nante iun darou)
明日の僕をむかえに行く (asu no boku wo mukae ni iku)
あの頃に負けないように (ano koro ni makenai you ni)
忘れかけた 大事なもの 抱えて (wasurekaketa daiji na mono kakaete)
答えなど分からなくても (kotae nado wakaranakute mo)
それでも続く道ならば 信じるままに歩こう (sore demo tsuzuku michi naraba shinjiru mama ni arukou)
The everyday of my own choice, may it be times I was lost or when I stumbled I wonder how will it be with my innocent self in the photo
I’m off to face myself of tomorrow I pray lest I fail by that time Embracing the important things long forgotten I might not know any answers Even so, I shall walk down the continuous path in simple faith
[Romaji and translation credit to Denise Dinc; thank you for your kindness]
I personally love the last two phrase. Not as much as these two ayahs in the Quran but close enough,
God does not burden any human being with more than he is well able to bear...[2:286]
..even though it be hateful to you; but it may well be that you hate a thing the while it is good for you, and it may well be that you love a thing the while it is bad for you: and God knows, whereas you do not know[2:216]
Syu told me about this awesome website a long time ago.... well, a few months ago. Had some attempts with some pretty profile pictures from magazine scans and my personal collection.
And I took below photo quite some time ago- had a sudden urge to photograph the perfumes the three of us have at home... And err.... 7 out of 10 are... mine XP Actually, in this particular picture, I missed out one bottle, CK Eternity, which is empty already but I still keep the bottle, because perfumes are just love xD
The photo turned out to be dull. It's bland. And boring. So I thought I'd 'spice it up'. I've been thinking about making it vintage-like since Syu told me about the website. Check it out, it's really nice.
Below the cut is the original photo and another two that I saved while editing it to the final product above. You can see the differences~
It's been 8 years.... most of the time I think I'm still not good and not ready to work. Everyday, the thought of exams makes me worried, not just because they're important exams, but the bigger questions of "Will I be a safe doctor?" and "Do I know enough?" and "Am I ready? Am I trustworthy enough?" keep on pounding in my head. They all lead to "Why did I choose this in the first place?"
There's a part of me that wants to finish quickly but there's also a part of me that's scared. Is there any part of me that's feeling excited to go out there and work? None at this moment.
MAJOR self doubt. I know. And it comes now, during the critical time *headdesk*
There, I said it out in the open. How long have I been feeling this and carrying this without telling a soul about it, even with some strong compulsion to meet some of my mentors?
