Hello, apa khabar, I'm still alive, don't worry.

Just to let all of you who either cares for me or are just nosy know that I am still up and about and doing stuff that I am supposed to do, here are little snapshots of what is up with my life since May 6, the day I had that unforgettable dream:

~ I was doing my first third-year prac for three weeks. It ended on Friday last week with big hugs and lovely prezzies from the staff. It was a happy but sad day for me. Happy because it was all over and I could concentrate on doing my lit review and sad because I've grown to enjoy myself there. Met my advisor at Gloria Jeans Epping to finalize her assessment and prac will officially be over on Thursday when we do the prac folder peer evaluation thingy. Oh, just get it over and done with already!!!

~ It was Ta Seng and Edwin's birthday on May 11. I called Edwin to wish him happy birthday and I woke him from his beauty sleep. Ta Seng, on the other hand, we took him to Mac Cen so that I could belanja him dinner but he ended up buying dinner for himself! That fella, just because you're working doesn't mean I cannot buy stuff for you ok?

~ Kenny's birthday was on May 13. Sent him a text message first thing in the morning only to find out a few days later on the MSN that he did not receive it. What is wrong with communications nowadays? At first, my congratulatory card doesn't get to Sook Fong, then my much anticipated autographed CD of Michael's latest album goes missing in the post. The latest incident was mummy not receiving the oh-so-cute Mother's Day card I sent! And now text messages getting lost in cyber space? Outrageous!

~ And there was the conversation I had with Rick, which reminded me of the good old times and which also made me feel like going home. Rick's pursuing a girl! OMG! But, haha, I am obliged as a friend to only let you know that much. If you really want to know more, ask him yourself or see if you can dig anything out of Jeunn Fuh. =P

~ Do not watch MI:3 if you have a headache because it will only make you feel worse. I even felt like puking. The show itself was good, though. I liked the storyline, the whole idea of Ethan settling down and all that, makes it more realistic but then again, can this happen in real life? Haha... that is up to you. And with all that being a linguist. Wow, I mean, they learn so many languages as actors but do they actually understand what they say? Do they learn anything out of it? Or are they like uni students who memorize and then forget everything once it's all spilled out?

~ Ai Ling is now working in a new company. She's happy with the place as she gets to work more humane hours, unlike where she was before. This way, she gets to come out for mamak sessions when I'm home. Her new office is in Shah Alam and ahem, she's single again! Girl ar, don't rush into the next one ok? Enjoy life as it is first. If you're hooked up, how am I supposed to spend quality time gossiping and backstabbing and reminiscing with you? =D

~ Uncle Shiang Foo is shopping for a good school around our area for Darryl. Hopefully, Darryl will get to start Year 10 when he comes. Uncle Shiang and Uncle SF and families will be heading down to Melbourne in 2 days and then on June 1, they will be bunking over at our place for 3 days. That's when I will be interviewing them for my research. Oh, and in the meantime, I'm doing research for them - calling people up asking about selective high schools and all that. Aunty Gek just called and she did mention she would like Darryl to specialize in Biology. Definitely James Ruse if he can. Heck, it's the No. 1 school in NSW!

~ The wisdom tooth opening on the rear right side of my mouth has been bleeding quite a bit recently. Sometimes, it even hurts. Shaun thinks its an infection. I have been gargling my mouth with Oral-B antiseptic mouth wash for 2 weeks now. I even dab salt on it. Oh, what can the matter be? I've spent enough money on consulting doctors already, I'm not prepared to consult a dentist so soon.

~ Yew Huoi is arriving tomorrow! That means another copy of Michael's autographed CD is arriving! Yeay! I will meet Emma early in the morning to talk about my terrible draft and then come home to clean the house. My train to the airport leaves Epping at 2:15pm. Of course I have to go pick them up at the airport. You don't expect them to take the train to Epping all on their own, do you? It's their first time in Sydney leh!

~ I handed in my draft literature review yesterday and I think it was terrible. Have to continue work on that one. Now I have to catch up on readings for lecture later. Later tonight I'll be going back to DLC with Ta Seng to celebrate Kah Wai's birthday. Later tonight meaning 15 minutes before midnight. Sigh...

Oh, but before that, lunch!!!

And Shaun's home liao.
