My Forgetfulness, The Murder, Last Week of Work
MIA for a week now. Heh, it has been an eventful week. I'm still as sleepy everyday, looking like someone who haven't slept for a decade. As a result, I find it hard to focus on what I do n tend to be more forgetful. I had forgotten my keys twice now, something which didn't happen in the past. My skin condition has worsened too due to the lack of rest n dry air-conditioned working environment.
This week marked the end of the whole attachment stuff n the students can now enjoy their one month of holiday before heading for their final year in NUS. 6 weeks has passed n we've seen 3 different batches of students. Some are fun loving while some are serious, but overall, they were great people to hang out with. I'll see if I'll meet them again in NUS 2months later when I go in.
June is coming to an end, which also signifies my contract at TTSH is ending. It'll be my last week at work now. They had employed new assistants to replace the current group of us. Ee Ping, Selena, Yvonne n me will be leaving on the 30th June this coming Friday. Hehe, I'll be happy cos I can finally take a break, do something I want for a month n go back to school in August. On the other hand, I'll miss my great colleagues.
The weather has been erratic as usual. Rainy n sunny days alternated each other through out the week. I'm down with flu again. A lot of people have been down with illness in my workplace too. So u can imagine the virus spreading around the icy cold pharmacy. Gave my hair a good cut in mid week after almost 2 months. Never had such long hair since I entered army in 2004. I'm back to my short crew cut now, free from the trouble of brushing my hair backwards n combing in the morning. Hehe..
Oh, the World Cup had progressed into the knock out stage now. Sadly to say,
The news this week covered yet another murder case involving
Ok, I've written a lot. Sunday is coming to an end n I hope my flu will be gone by the time I wake up tomorrow.

At the barber, ready to cut my hair

The rain was so heavy, my shoe was wet through n u can see the distinct colour difference
Had the new chicken salsa burger for lunch in BuergerKing
Eating with my female colleagues is a joy. Nope, not becos they're girls, but cos they owas can't finish n i can gobble up everything. I had 3 packs of fries becos they can't finish their share. I luv fries!!

Novena station was flooded. The underground station's ceiling was leaking with rain water can u believe it?
Workers drying the floor
Check out the pail of water
Check out this video of the condition in the station

I think my hair is not short enough for them. Goodbye guys. Cya in NUS
This is Jun Yen preparing the polystyrene syrup for a patient. Last pic before leaving for work to meet my army mates
The flood in the station has been cleared. I saw this huge "tube" with a ventilator-like thingy at the end of it
I wonder what this thing can do to prevent future floods in the station
Even the escalator was spoilt due to the flood

World Cup = Not Enough Sleep
Heh, I'm back after almost a week away. It has been a busy n tiring week for me. Was preoccupied with both the World Cup n spending time with MQ. The World Cup is a week old now n a few teams had already qualified for the next round.
On the other hand, my beloved
Ok, the World Cup has disrupted my sleep pattern pretty badly this week. Watching a match at 12am n sleeping at 2am, waking up for work at 7.30am. Friday was the ultimate--staying at MQ's house n watching 3 matches in a row, from 9pm till 5am in the morning, n waking up at 8.30am for work on Saturday. Everyone at work thought I'm a heavy gambler n betted on soccer matches. Haha, I think they don't understand the passion I have for the game. I can't live without soccer, it runs in my blood. Watching every match doesn't mean I bet. I used to, but quit cos I realized I'll lose more than I win. My last best was the opening match of Euro 2004, when
Enough of soccer. My contract at work is coming to an end soon. It'll be my last 2 weeks starting tomorrow. I need a break, but I really enjoy my work, mainly due to the nice people working around me. Been meeting MQ a lot through out the week. Coming home from work together on the train n having dinner after that. It was nice being single for the past year, but then I did miss the times of having a companion, someone I can talk to, I can hold n love. I'm finding myself slowly growing more attached to her. First seeing her at age 12, not speaking to each other for the next 8 years, n then coming back together again. Fate is such a weird thing. I can sense the smile coming back into me. It took me a year; my darkest days are probably over. I'm really glad I have her with me now....
14th June, Wednesday
There was this band performance at the TTSH main atrium
The performance was by Bedok View SS band

16th June, Friday
Friday morning, dark sky. Rain beckons
So studious huh?
So hardworking huh?
Walking around the mall, we came upon these cute Doraemons.
At the MRT station. I love this Adidas advetisement. Why? Cos there's Mchel Platini, Franz Beckenbauer n many other legends. As usual, Beckham is the centre of attraction.
Moving down the escalator
Watching Argentina thrash Serbia&Montenegro 6-0 at MQ's house
She went to sleep, leaving Nemo accompanying me for the night. This is how at look at 3.30am, watching my third match of the night- Mexico VS Angola
