thanks, everyone <3

For those who called/sms/facebook/thought of me on my birthday, much thanks!!! Didn't do anything earth-shattering, went out for some Japanese food, felt like having some sake.

"Can I have this sake please? We'd like it warm, thanks"

"Er... Can I see some ID please?"

WAHAHAHA
Photobucket
I look young enough for her to ask for my ID. Unfortunately, didn't have any ID on me so no sake.

After dinner, decided to go watch "Wanted". At the counter,

"Can I see some ID, please? This movie is M16"

Wah a bit too much right.

pekak (thanks Lavi)

aiks i am feeling quite guilty from cabut-ing neurology clinic in the afternoon. the nicer everyone is, the more guilty i feel. oklah, my partner left already so may as well.

it is Easter this weekend! a couple of us are going off for the weekend, the plan is going kayaking (with the dolphins, said the brochure. i would probably accidentally hit them on the head with the paddle), chill on the beach with a few bottles of cold beers and then drive back. the motels/backpackers/etc are mostly fully booked but luckily the 5th one I called had a vacancy left.

"bla bla bla do you have any rooms left?"

"bla bla bla yes we have enough space in the room for you guys"

"ok cool do i give you my credit card to book the room?"

"yeah but are there MALE couples?"

"har? male couples?"

"yeah male couples"

at this time i'm like wtf male couples why the hell do you want to know that anyway. then i said

"er i can't really hear you"

*laughs* "ok, are the MALE couples among you"

then it finally dawned one me. MARRIED COUPLES LAH!!!

"NO NO MARRIED COUPLES"


or male couples either

Bungee Jumping

w00t!I did it! Bungee-d off Auckland Harbour Bridge at 40m.


The most difficult bit was standing at the platform thinking "Why the hell did I just pay NZD100 to do this to myself?". After the leap, everything was "sweet". Come to Auckland la, I can teman you guys go jump again.

Oh and the bungee cords were "Made In Malaysia".

Hopefully the next destination will be Queenstown. At 134m. 8.5 seconds free fall. Woohoo!!

COME TO NEW ZEALAND!

damn you, exams

DAMN YOU!!!!!!!
&!^@!(*&@^!%#!&@^!*&^*(@)!@*^!%@^!!!!!!!

Got this off the Internet sometime ago.

Recipe for revision

Ingredients
  • Lots of good intentions - because if all goes horribly pear shaped, at least you can say you had them
  • Plenty of paper and stationery - for doodling when your brain is about to explode
  • Instant Notes in Biochemistry - you're going to need it, especially if all those 9 am starts were a little too much to ask
  • One room from which you will not leave - other than to eat, drink, use the toilet, and to hyperventilate down the phone to your friends
  • One punchbag or similar - a wall would suffice, particularly as the average student has neither the money nor the space in student digs for such stress beating luxuries
  • Painkillers - paracetamol, aspirin, ibuprofen, codeine, though not all at once - to be used in the event of overuse of the wall
  • A photographic memory
  • A miracle - or those who actually believe they happen
  • Beta blockers (own prescriptions only - please, as black market propranolol is not a good idea before the biggest exams in your life to date)
  • Teabags, coffee, and lots of sugar
  • Redbull - "It gives you wings"
  • Thirty hours in a day
  • Eight days in a week - that way you have time to eat and sleep, as well as revise
  • A vast selection of takeaway menus and a telephone to hand - if you cannot afford this, then several loaves of bread and a surplus of baked beans make an ideal substitute
  • A leaflet on stress management - although you'll be so stressed, you won't have time to read it
  • Generally stick to using the wall
The week before
  • Preset room to about 17°C - if there is no working radiator in the room (as in most student accommodation) then improvise with suitable layers of clothing
  • Put all those good intentions to one side
  • Bored already? - take a trip downstairs and prepare a hot beverage, chat to your housemates, then reluctantly return to your room
  • Finally open a book. The first topic seems so unfamiliar that you have to check the subject syllabus to make sure you need to learn it. You do (as is usually the case)
  • Spend a copious amount of time writing out perfect notes on the particular topic. Six hours have now passed and three pages of perfectly condensed notes have been copied from the textbook. This is now the time to panic as you look back over the list of topics and slowly realise that the topic you have just spent the last six hours toiling over is one of 25 topics, all as gruelling and similar in complexity
  • Telephone a colleague. He or she is just as stressed as you are and together you decide that perhaps three or four heads are better than one, and a group revision session may be your best sporting chance of cramming two years of information into a few days
  • Five minutes later your colleagues arrive with books and notes in hand. After spending the first half hour telling each other about how stressed you are and how everyone is going to fail, you start to quiz each other on things you've learnt
  • Arghh! Everyone else seems to know much more than you do. You decide that this public display of lack of knowledge is not going to help your exam performance, so continue for the rest of the week studying on your own, filling in chunks of missing or lost notes from 9 am lectures.
The night before
  • By this time there are no nails left on your fingertips. You can't eat for fear of vomiting. Your notes seem alien to you. All you can do is sit and hope. An all night session is on the agenda, but you are so exhausted that you fall asleep at 2 am.
To serve
  • Serve with a generous helping of blood, sweat, and toil. Garnish with a handful of pencil shavings.
The end result
  • Who knows, only time will tell. The thing to remember is that thousands of medical students undergo this cruel ritual every year, and most of those do indeed pass. Don't give up hope.

OKOK! don't leave this blog! Here are some pictures as promised of my ever-so-wonderful life in Auckland

We left Auckland at 3 am so we will be just in time to snowboard the next morning when the ski field opens.

Introducing our very own (not really, we rented it) environmental friendly vehicle

It was weird to walk outside after breakfast and see a pig snorting by followed by a goat, 2 dogs and a Kit Chung.

Day 2: Paintball

"We Indians" versus "You Chinese". Technically Balwinder isn't an Indian (neither am I) but owell.

Kit Chung made his bandanna from that cloth you clean the kitchen counter with, in case you are wondering why it looks so darn familiar.

Red team lost though.

"Ok Ok. What's the plan la?"
"Dunno! We whack only lah!"
"Er. Ok"

*Me camping behind my favorite tree*

KALAH!

Currently feeling:

I'm mumbling to myself what I usually mumble at this time of the year: "Why oh why didn't I start studying earlier?!?!?!"
