.:: oF PiTTeR PaTTeR ::.

Hey Peeps,

Yeah, quite a long absence then... Nearly 2 weeks~ hehehe... Well, you know, with exams coming up and all (like hell i was ONLY studying). But anywayz, this would probably be a short post. 'oF PiTTeR PaTTeR' is about rain. Yeah, the droplets of waters that falls from the skies and not the korean singer! LoL.

[grabbed from 2lovinuyasha]

Why talk about rain all of a sudden? Only because Dubdub (dublin) has been pouring these few days. I was walking outside with a few friends house hunting yesterday when it was sunny although a little breezy when suddenly, it poured!!! LoL. We were walking along the canal so there were trees to take cover under. It rained as it were in Malaysia~ hehehe...

[grabbed from k-lia]

Well... anywayz... Tomorrow there's TeamOSCE to worry about. Patient Actors, here comes play dr cyid! hehe... hope everything goes well...

.:: oF DeTaCHMeNTS ::.

Hey Peeps.

Yeah, another update from da crazy dude. And this post is entitled 'oF DeTaCHMeNTS'; talking about pushing things away, trying to forget and basically, moving on. =) No, no. It doesn't really have to be happening to me! hehe... Look, see... am all cheerful and happy =)

Some people come into our lives bringing happiness. Some even come with promising words. Words that makes you hang to every last syllable, every last letter. Words that make you believe there's hope; there's a chance at something. How silly can people be when they just go head-on believing such words; putting their full trust and lastly those words ended up just being mere words, most probably forgotten with the ticking of time.

But why still keep hanging on to those words even though they prove to be meaningless in the end? There's this little thing called trust. And also the void of doubts. For most parts, trust is a good thing. I for one believe in trusting people. This may sound very immature but trusting is so much easier and less burdening compared to doubting. =)

But as Lady Gaga and Beyonce said in their single; 'Trust is like a mirror, you can fix it if it's broken, but you can still see the crack...' See... When someone starts to trust you, they've actually given themselves to you per se (have to be put into context la!). But when you break that trust, either one of two things could happen. They can just not trust you anymore, or they try to trust you again with the memory of you once breaking their trust.

So, if that trust is already broken, why not move on? That's caused by this little thing called separation anxiety. They don't feel brave enough to detach themselves and plunge into the unknown without the other. But once these anxiety has lessen, babysteps are made to detach from the trust breaker. hehe, OMG, I'm not making any sense here... sigh...

Owh well, breaking away isn't as easy as it may sound. But if the situation's bugging you and filling you with negative thoughts, vibes and feelings, it's the thing you must master.

So, all I'm saying is, I'm detaching myself slowly as you've broken my trust not once (which I overlooked since I made my own poor judgement) but twice. EH! Why did it all get personal all of a sudden? hehehe... I have no idea~ :P Out of sight, out of mind, out of reach, out; get the hell out! woot~ [emotional much?]

Well anywayz...
It's my last night at home before departing towards the emerald isle once again (this time for a reseat paper... sigh... wished i would have done better the first time round)
Till next time (which hopefully will be soon), later days dudes and dudettes.
cyid out.

[where has all those happy2 post gone?!?!?!]

.:: oF LiTTLe PRaYeRS ::.

Hey Peeps.

Yup, I guess it's time for another one of those whirlwind updates... short but, well... I wouldn't go as far as to call them meaningful! 'oF LiTTLe PRaYeRS' is dedicated to the song 'Say a Little Prayer for You'. I've always loved the Glee cover version of it cos the gurls had such melody blending together! hehehe... And yeah, there was this one time I watched 'My Best Friend's Wedding', the song came up too! I know, it's an old film but it's real sweet and cool! Loved the storyline!

About prayers... we never really know when they will be answered; that's probably where the magic lies... In the trust and hope of it being answered; never really letting go to the idea that out little prayers goes up to the heavens and will be answered among the other million prayers of others as well. Have a lil faith; sooner or later it will materialize. However it's quite hard to actually wait for that later part that people sometime gives in halfway through... But yeah, let's have faith peeps!

For what it's worth, I dedicate this song to all you readers out there with my little prayer that you'd be happy with life amongst those you love. Hehe, not much rambling today I guess since I've slipped in two youtube videos here.

Sometimes the difficulties we face are blessings in disguise. We may not pray for them exactly, but we still get them. I'd like to end the post with a lil poem I've been familiar with since... I guess it was high school... It goes a little something like this...

I asked for strength,
and God gave me difficulties to make me strong,
I asked for wisdom,
and God gave me problems to solve,
I asked for prosperity,
and God gave me brains and brawns to work with,
I asked for courage,
and God gave me dangers to overcome,
I asked for love,
and God gave me troubled people to help,
I asked for favours,
and God gave me opportunities.

I received nothing i wanted,
I received everything i needed,
My prayers are answered.
Thank You God.

Ok folks, that's all for this lil post.
It got long in the end... haih... hehehe...
Later days dudes and dudettes.

.:: oF BeiNG BaCKSTaGe ::.

Hey Peeps

Yet again, another post... and twice in a day! OMG, what 's happening to the world?!?!?! Yeah, it may be a lil hard to engrave into the back of your mind but somehow, I've actually started to post more random rambles of nonsense! keke~

And truth be told... I fell like typing up more and more posts! You might ask, what's coming?!?!?! The writing bug's coming! hehe... yeah, and I hope it's here to stay for a while cos I think I have a lot on my mind that I would like to dish out into open space so that any unlucky travelers to this blog would have a chance to read it (not saying that you will, I'm only being hypothetical).

At some point throughout thinking of making a comeback to frequent updates, I was thinking of coming up with a new blog where I would actually post up stuff that I would probably not post with my name hanging on the line like that, but frankly, I don't think it's necessary~ hehehe... I should be responsible to what I say so I won't be the man behind the writing, I'd be the man writing!

What nonsense am I blabbering away with here? Heck I don't know... I just feel like sometimes, there are things that are worth blogging about but I don't want it to be linked to me... And if I had another blog where the owner was anonymous, then it's be fine to post it up... But heck, let's just leave that to staying as an idea. I'll try to rephrase the stuff to suit all walks of life~ hehe... Like it's been emphasized on TV, 1malaysia people! hehe... well, I'd rather go for 1wholeworld or something like that but yeah, whatever...

So hey, do expect more from time to time as the writing bug's come and bit me already! hehehe... [and just in the nick of tyme... just when I'm about to face a resit exam... sigh... it's a bad habit I guess]. Again, I emphasize that this blog is purely made of random, i mean VERY RANDOM ramblings that don't usually link to one another, but comes from a guy that likes to rambles on and on when he is faced in front of the good old lappy~ hehehe

In conclusion, the writing bug's back folks... and yeah, I write what I feel like writing and I should probably take responsibility of what I write~ wee~ hehehe... 'oF BeiNG BaCKSTaGe'? well, that's just techinically like saying I won't hide behind my words. Got me? hehe :P And hey, one more thing why the writing bug's back; it's because I wanna beat the amount of posts I posted last year... and yeah, I'm doing terrible at the moment, but hey, a guy's gotta have a goal right?

So till next time dudes and dudettes,
later days,
cyid out

.:: oF CoMiNG aND GoiNG ::.

Hey Peeps...

I'm surprised myself that I actually thought of blogging even after I already blogged yesterday. Hehe... Well, that must be what happens when you put aside social networking sites~ hehe. Or maybe it's because I feel like blogging. 'oF CoMiNG aND GoiNG' is the title for today! and well, if we wanna be objective about it, I'm probably gonna blabber about more than one thing today. =)

People say some things come and go in our lives. But friends stay true till the end. However... Don't friends also come and go at times? Not your close friends, or your BFFs or whatever labels you wanna tag them with, but the friends that you're not so particularly close with; the ones you've only have brief encounters with, the ones you can only master a 'hi' or 'how are you' everytime you meet them. But some don't dubbed these people with the term 'friends' instead they rather like to call them acquaintance.

Meh, either way, people come and go in your lives. Some come for a while, makes you happy with lies and fool you with very promising words, and then, they just go... leaving you hanging by a thread; wishing for that 'what ifs' and ponder on the 'could haves'. Sounds negative here? hehehe... Am I talking about my own experiences? Urm... well, it doesn't really matter. Even though I put it in a really negative way, some people just have to 'go' from your life. It's just a matter of time before they continue to fool you.

Ok, so the last paragraph or so was too negative; let us try o look at things in a more positive manner. Referring to the law of magnetology, opposite attracts. But it seems that when it comes to emotions, that law doesn't work. If we perceive things positively, we'll feel much better than when we take it in a negative manner. So looking back on the last paragraph, savour that happiness that they bring and well, just let them go if they wanna go. It's their loss that they're leaving you! hehehe, am i ryte? Focus on your happiness because if you're not happy, you can't make other peopl happy! =)

Another part of coming and going is... well... Maybe we can say this about life itself. One time you hear about a birth of a new being while the next you'll hear about death. Life come and goes pretty much all the time, that's why we shouldn't really dwell on how bad, how sad, how unsatisfying our life is and start savouring every waking moment of it.

Well, I was only intentionally typing this post to focus on the points before, about people coming and going in life but life and death seems relevant too. Recently (a few days back) an aunt-in-law of mine passed away... It started with a fever, than she went into cardiac arrest for 10 minutes before getting resuscitated. But yeah, after a 10 minutes cardiac arrest, chances are slim... She had cerebral oedema as well (from FB statuses or close relatives).

Well, the point is, death comes unexpectedly. And in truth, I don't think I got to know her quite well yet. And hey, I thought of typing on how her 1 or 2 year old daughter reacted... But thinking it through, I only heard 3rd person account of it... I would probably weeped if I actually saw it myself. The lil kiddo aimlessly looking for her mum after her funeral. Crying at night and stuff... Sigh... Life's too short to take for granted.... Life comes and goes... So people, be happy with what you have! Cherish your family.

Time in general goes by ever so quickly. That's why we see people/things/situations come and go in our lives. We sometime forget that every waking second we've been through, that's a second gone, either been put to good use or wasted. So let's stay positive about life, be happy, enjoy what you have so that every second of our life would be put to good use, and serves as a good memory. =)

Till next tyme dudes and dudettes,

.:: oF aN eXiLaTioN ::.

Hey Peeps...

Well anywayz, it surprises me that someone may even stumble upon this page after it's owner abandons it for quite some time... Looking back on it, there's practically only a few post since the start of the year, few as in an amount that could be counted on one hand! But hey, since this humble abode is still alive, and I fell like typing up stuff, I'll just continue doing what I love... Rambling nonsense! hehe...

So anywayz, what's with the solemn title? Well, for one, a title can usually mislead people into thinking that's what the content is about, or it can actually be the essence of the content. And unfortunately in this very context, it's the essence of the post~ hehe... So I bid farewell to the readers who doesn't like serious ramblings. Cos that's what this post is about. =)

People say, when life throw lemons at you, make a lemonade. When life gives you problem, go forth and solve it rather than running away from it. But in truth, when dealing with people, sometimes don't you think it's better to run away and take your time out? Hehehe... (ok, well, it doesn't really matter if you agree or not really) I actually wiki-ed exile and it says that one of the meanings is that 'isolating oneself to be able to devote time to a particular thing'.

So I'm actually taking a leave of absence... (like I haven't done that before from the blogsphere :P) Exiling myself to devote time for what? For myself. Hehehe... Yeah, sounds pretty selfish if you ask me, but hey, people need sometime to themselves at times, don't they? But in this era of mass communication, it's pretty hard to do so without one knowing a safe rural haven to run to, right? Preferably a cave of some sort!

So in my point of view, to exile oneself to devote time to oneself nowadays would only mean a few things...

One; taking a break from all your social networking pages (i.e Facebook in particular!) so that you won't really be bothered by some pretty picture you've been tagged in or notifications of some distant friend saying a simple hi!. Yeah, I do sound cold but in truth, that's what I had to do myself since I'm practically addicted to that site... sigh... It's probably for the better as well, to train myself to lessen that unnecessary dependency on that site.

Two; some people are persistent and thereby you have to either switch off your phones (which maybe would be dangerous if you had urgent stuff to use it) or just change number for a while! hehehe... Only a few people should know your new number, the important ones only. [maybe a member of the family so they could update you if anything happened].

Three; just leave the internet completely. Unless you expect important e-mails and such. hehehe...

Sounds like drastic measures to be taken to exile one's self isn't it? But a person's got to do what they've got to do to gain what they want to gain. Ok, that last sentence sounds like it doesn't make sense for some reason. Some people might even ask, why the heck do you wanna do something to that extent?

Well... there's actually many reason to exile one's self from the community at times... Well, I'm probably going to list down a few that's probably led me to such drastic measures~ hehehe... Yeah, as people may know I'm actually an internet addict, in particular, Facebook.

One; you have something important to do, one that would need you to lessen distractions and you're real bad at prioritizing. LoL, ok, i'm just describing myself there...

Two; you just need some time to yourself, to get back to yourself, to reconnect with your innerself if people believe that~ You know, sometimes when we forget to focus our life around ourselves, we tend to shed away our 'self' - believes, what we hold on to, hope, dreams, wishes etc. You get the point. These stuff defines who we are...

Three; you just need some 'me' time. Yeah, that sounds so immature at first glance but you do! At times, the world just seems very unbearable (beats me, I dunno why it happens) and you just need to run away and come back anew! LoL. Or you just need time to pamper yourself! hahaha... The point is, you need time for yourself, leaving behind (only for a while) that self usually follows what others around you dictates! wee...

I'll just leave it up to three... But most reasons would probably focus on one thing. You just need time to yourself since it's self-exile rather than being exiled by others~ And hey, I've do it again... Silent for ages and come back with a huge post. Well, I just can't stop typing when I start~ hehehe... But yeah, since it is my lil domain in the www i guess i can use it however i like! :P

That's probably all for this post. A lil impromptu like any of my other posts i guess... Well, yeah, let's just say this blog is for my many impromptu posts! who cares~

Later dude and dudettes~
cyid out, for how long? even i don't know...

Thursday, May 27, 2010

.: No TiTLe :.

Hi peeps! LoL...

For those that came, and sighed at how long the post is... skip down to the last part and just read the questions~ kekeke, or if you have more time, scroll through and just read the bold sentences i guess... and if you have ample time to waste, go ahead and start reading folks! kekeke

Well, anywayz... after the long absence I'd be grateful to even have at least a visitor to the blog, kekeke... but anywayz, that's not that important as I kindda made this blog to just get me typing on and on in English as I pretty much don't get the chance to do so with the current degree I'm pursuing.

Any how... I started this post not really knowing what to type up but hopefully by the end of the post there's something to share with everyone. kekeke... So it's now... 27th May 2010... Guess when I'm leaving for Malaysia? in 2 days time! yippee for that although I haven't started packing yet which probably explains why I'm blogging at this exact moment! [If you've been reading from before, you would probably have noticed I have the tendency of coming up with new posts at very inappropriate time such as exams! kekeke]

Wokeyh, so in my absence, yes, I have not just went into a coma... I've been well... I wouldn't say too busy to actually make me not have time to blog, but busy enough apparently to not dust all these cobwebs from this lil site of mine... haih... Well anywayz, I would like to blog about a few new experiences I went through this semester... No, I'm not gonna go bing-bong haywire about how the new semester's workload has pummeled me to rock bottom but other, more... fun experiences!

So I joined the archery sports club. kekeke, thumbs up to Putri for actually convincing me to 'return' and become a more actively participating member! Archery's very tough actually cos the strain it causes can be seen after a few rounds of shooting. And hell yeah, there weren't any teachers around so we just got by on our own, which to me wasn't an advantage cos I'm VERY VERY bad at sports... Anyone seen me play tennis? yeah, it's THAT bad even after 2 years of training... kekeke... Anywayz... archery... there weren't much members so I even got a part to go to Intervarsities [to fill the maximum quota! lol] and yeah, it was quite an experience feeling SO inferior to those that can actually shoot! But I loved going anyway! went twice and both times I just got very very bad scores that are too embarrassing to even be mentioned! but the point of this whole paragraph is probably that I actually had fun with this sport, seeing that i dun have to move around much! lol...

Inter varsities took place in various places, one being in a place called Limerick where we actually skipped a day of class [yes kids, do not do this, very-very bad] well, technically we weren't skipping anything much cos there weren't classes for the whole batch on the said day. Anywayz... You know how sometimes, you don't really talk much to people and just the random 'hey' and 'how are you' and stuff... Well, after spending a weekend away with these guys, it felt uber-great! Ok, lol... I dun really know what to continue with here so I'll just leave you with a picture of me in a dungeon! kekekeke...

Moving on, I would like to mention that I have so many great friends here in Dublin... that caters to my madness! kekekeke... well, the former was true; I do have many friends... But I'd say I love to emphasize on the latter part; they've accepted the wacky side of moi. Family means the world and friends, they're like the... stars? Yeah, let's use that metaphor. They decorate your life and sparkle! They shine, they lead the way, they complete you I guess... Yeah, I'm loosing focus here, I know... But the hands just wants to keep typing since the body does not want to go packing yet. sigh... Anywayz... the picture below is a picture of a few of my friends and I having a picnic at a park just outside our (very little) campus. I think it was on a weekend! Or maybe not... But yeah, this time, no skipping2 class~ kekeke... Apparently this year, the temperature's not too cold so spring was quite warm hence the picnic! :D Yeah people, if you've never actually had picnics, I advise you to do so cause it's relaxing and fun! [and for people like me who has friends that loves taking pictures, you can pose and pout and yeah, do whatever la~ hehehe] All in all, friends are very important in life; if you don't have any, get some right away! lol... But i don't think anyone would actually not have any friends. But yeah, since I'm spouting endless nonsense already... might as well mention that!

Well, well... like every other year... Mother's day came and went this year... Although I think I can't really outshine last year's effort, I'm quite satisfied with the flowers I sent this year cos it looked and resembles the picture they advertised on the net. No, no... This paragraph isn't gonna focus of the flower, it's gonna be about my lovely Mama... Hehehe... I'm a mama's boy, and abah's boy too I guess! I'm spoilt to a certain extent I guess having been an only child for more than a decade before my lil sis and bro came along. Throughout this medical degree, I would say I have to thank my parents so much. They've been keeping me anchored to the ground, they've been the shoulders to cry on, they've been my motivation... They've been them and I could not ask for anything better cos they're just the best they can be. I know, everyone would say that about their own parents... It's called biasness and apparently, I don't think it's bad! kekeke, being bias this time is actually good! I don't know how to even express how much I love them~ It's cliche but well, I'll use 'em anyway... 'There's no words that can express how much i love you guys and how much you mean to me'. Abah, Mama; love you! sa rang hae! [korean-mad at the moment]

I think I'm reaching my typing limits now, so I'll probably end it with how we kindda had a mini-celebration post-exams! Kekeke... While we were in the midst of exams, I YMed a friend suggesting that we'd go for an impromptu picnic right after our last paper. And we did... LoL. The gurls bought burgers while the guy, yeah, he didn't eat! kekeke, way to turn the tides around... Anywayz, we also tried out this new place that just opened up, Milkshake Bar. I would just like to go OMG to their milkshake cos it was... well, it was delicious. kekeke... And very fulfilling. I was kindda stuffed throughout the day with only that one glass. Could it be called a glass? Well, you know what I mean la... I finished mine in about, 5 to 6 sips I think... kekeke... Well anywayz, summer's been great! It's hot an sunny on most days and very2 suitable for picnic. But since I'm going back so soon, there not much chance to go have picnics!

So I guess that was a very random and unstructured post... Very the impromptu as well... So that was a lil snippet of how life's been here in the emerald isle. More pics on FB if you guys are interested to go see... kakaka... [self-promotion? how cheap! kekeke].

Find out on the next Digimon, Digital Monster~
Ooops... Lol... :P

Sunday, January 31, 2010


This is a really long winding (maybe boring) post! :P

I has already been a month into the new year; 2010 and I haven't even posted anything up! Is this blog dying or what? Well, the owner's not dead yet thankfully so I guess I don't have much explaination behind my sudden disappearance except for that i have been VERY LAZY to update the blog... But thankfully on this joyous bright sunny sunday where others venture out onto the earth to have fun in the sun, I had that sudden urge to blog again! And no, this time, there's no tests nor exams to diverge my concentration from (as i usually do when there are tests to study for).

Anywayz, enough with that... Sounds boring already... I visited another blog earlier this month (though i've already forgotten which one...) and saw that the owner did a recap of the past decade of his life... seems interesting enough to make a post out of it! =D So let's do a lil brief recap of my life (how ever boring it may be) from 2000 all the way to 2009 (since nothing much has happened in 2010 as of yet!)

The year celebrating the coming of the new millenium. I was 12? yeah... 12. Anywayz... I was living in the UK back then. As most 12 y/os, we had to take a test before going into secondary school, or as we called it there; high school. SATs didn't seem as stressful as my other exams. I still remembered the essay I did for english! hehehe... My results weren't that bad I guess... Good, but not great... So then in the middle of the year, I went from Rendell Primary School into Limehurst High School. Made great new friends when I enrolled into high school. Adi, Liyana, Farah Fatin, Athirah, Naim and Nabilah! Good good friends. Gosh... this seems a little boring already... Let's jump onto the next year now, shall we?

13 years old. The year where I became a brother! Hehehe... Yeah, I lived a good 13 years as an only child so I'm not that bothered when a little critter came into our life. My lil baby sis was born in December, the last month of 2001, so what happened in the eleven months prior to that? Nothing as special I guess... Could still remember the feeling of getting a sibling after 13 years of being an only child. It felt... weird, but great! I still remember bring her baby pics to class to share with my friends! LoL, those were the days...

This is the year when we moved back to Malaysia after my dad completed his PhD. This is the year when I met back with SO many childhood friends as I enrolled into SMI Hidayah. The first few months of school was SO difficult in terms of academics and socializing. I'm a shy guy; ok maybe not nowadays but i WAS... thankfully pulled through quite ok by the end of the year, not excellent, but just plain good which is ok i guess... See, my life has never been about excellence! hehehe =P

I wouldn't say SO MUCH happened this year but a few great memories were carved. One being that we opened our arms to another little bundle of joy, this time though, I got a new baby brother. So much for being the only child! hehehe... So now there's the big bro, the big sis and the lil baby bro. Again, after waiting for so long, you could never have guessed how happy i was back then (and still am now!). The funny thing was, I was away when he was born. I was out camping in fact! So I first met my lil bro when he was 3 days old...

As all form 3 students in Malaysia know, we had to face an exam that year. PMR. One of those exams where it's important enough to decide what you'll be venturing through in the future! hehehe... Quite something to face right! I also remembered that my 15th birthday was also on the 2nd day of the exams although we never really had big celebrations anyway. Thankfully I was blessed with 8As and 1B for the exam... So the next two years would be quite horrific as I'm destined to enroll into the science classes. [take note that I've never really had much ambitions since I was a kid except that I really really wanted to be a power ranger! :P]

Sweet sixteen?!?!?! yeah right. Nothing sweet but 2004 was really fun! I felt that it was one of the most fun years (another one being in 2005) of my schooling years! Friends became closer friends, school was fun (yeah, i know... NERD much?). All in all, nothing much happened to me outside the realms of school. Hey, hey... I'm not that nerdy, seriously... ask anyone... Ok, so not much happened this year I guess... Moving on...

One would would probably sum it up. SPM. It's an abbreviation but I consider it one word :P This is the year I sat the exam to obtain the Certificate of Education, Malaysia. So you know... busy studying, I was also busy online! hehehe... Back then it was with friendster! Ok, SPM took most of the time. Moving on...

Our school alumni thought of a programme for us since it's 3 months away till we get our results. So we were shipped off to Aceh to observe the effects of the Tsunami onto the citizens. since it's under 2 years after the tsunami hits Aceh, there were still much destruction seen. A whole month being in Aceh was quite fun actually... That's probably the 1st time i've been away so long from my family. We met lots of people there (and tried so many new FOOD!).

After Aceh, the results came out... Not too bad... Then that phase came; the applying for scholarship phase. As well as 'what are you gonna do for the rest of your life' phase. Which I hated a lot!!! I hate making big decisions and going through massive changes in life. Although change is natural, moving out of your comfort zone is tough. I actually applied for many things since I haven't really made up my mind yet then. The two roads that was conflicting was between medicine and english. I really liked english, be it literature or teaching it. My mum was quite supportive of the teaching career although she advised me to be a lecturer rather than becoming a teacher. But anywayz, since there wasn't any doctors in our family (extended family) the pressure did rise and most people seem that it was pretty obvious that i would jump onto the medical train towards the hospital with the grades i achieved. So I took that train...

And enrolled into MCB, Mara College Banting, or better known as KMB. We had to do IB, International Baccalaureate. I haven't a clue what I was enrolling myself into as long as it's a means of getting into a medical degree. The first semester of KMB was HELL! hahaha... Like i mentioned before, I've never really been away from my family much so a whole semester being away from my family was tough. But as hell-ish as it was, it was fun too.

Another thing that happened this year, at then end of the year to be precise, was that my cousin passed away because of leukemia. That's probably the first time having a close family member encountering death. Didn't know how to react at first but then it sank in and I guess that was the first time i felt a loss of a family member... So many things happened that very year...

My 2nd and 3rd semester in KMB was FUN! Made a really great circle of friends then. So many things happened in KMB that i would say matures me in a few ways and nurtures the child in me as well!

The year when we were free from the clutches of IB and KMB! lol... something to really celebrate about. The final IB exam was quite hell-ish as well as it was to determine if we were to continue into our degrees overseas or the unknown outcome... Which thankfully i didn't have to find out. Before the results were out though, two memorable things happened.

One of them was that my youngest aunt got married. I think it was around the time right after i came out of KMB. Being involved in a wedding was fun!

The other was when my great grandma passed away at the age of... well, we weren't sure for certain but she was really old. the 2nd time felling that great family member loss feeling.

And 2008 was also the year when I flew to Ireland to start on my medical degree. It wasn't my first time living in a foreign country but it was my first time living in a foriegn country alone without my family...

last year was FABULOUS! hehehe... in the summer I went back-packing around europe! covered 8-9 countries in a month i think... well, this was in previous posts so i won't really bore you with something you've already read about.

after the euro trip, i went back to malaysia for the fasting month and also for eid celebration...

And thankfully, I started my 2nd year as well! hehehe... still a long road ahead for this medical degree to end! ( T - T )

Ok, I'm tired...
Cyid out!
