That's just life i guess

I've not written here in quite a while. Probably because life's just been plain sailing for me thus far. Probably because life's just been pretty plain. Heck I wonder sometimes it might be even be going a little too smoothly for my own good.

Today Xian Lee left Manchester for the last time. It seems as if it were only yesterday that I was that keened eye student that was asking for some advice from a senior. Little did I know that quirky senior would become one of my closest bros.

It is times like these that you realise that, lotsa things come and go. People move on. Life goes on. A friend once told me, you take the good and the bad with you, but only remember the good. lol if only I had that sorta innocence.

It's funny that I'm suddenly starting to doubt what direction I'm heading in. Things are always crystal clear to me I feel like I'm just walking into a path that's bee prepared. Always so sure. Maybe that's the problem. Maybe I do need things to be a little blurry, round the edges at least. Is it possible that only a year after I challenged myself to leave Belfast, that I'm already getting too cosy in my comfort zone?

As I am penning my thoughts here, I realise we now live in a pretty lonely world. A world where people much rather face an electronic screen most of the day; a world where people keep connected by online blogs, network sites etc. We take for granted the fellowship that real life company affords, the heart to heart talks that no Twitter site can replace and all the banter with a mate that has been conveniently replaced by the niceties of MSN messages. As the night light glooms and dusk comes, I realise that I've just lost such a mate. I wish him all the best in his future endeavours and all the luck that he feels has deserted him. Till the next time.

News Flash

Entire Family Beats Child

A seven-year-old boy was at the center of a courtroom drama yesterday when he challenged a court ruling over who should have custody of him. The boy has a history of being beaten by his parents and the judge initially awarded custody to his aunt, in keeping with child custody law and regulations requiring that family unity be maintained to the degree possible.

The boy surprised the court when he proclaimed that his aunt beat him more than his parents and he adamantly refused to live with her. When the judge then suggested that he live with his grandparents, the boy cried out that they also beat him!

After considering the remainder of the immediate family and learning that domestic violence was apparently a way of life among them, the judge took the unprecedented step of allowing the boy to propose who should have custody of him.

After two recesses to check legal references and confer with child welfare officials, the judge granted temporary custody to the England Football Team , whom the boy firmly believes are not currently capable of beating anyone.

Guess who's back!

Whoa. I check my blog from time to time wondering why aren't there any new posts. Realised it's coz I haven't been writing any. So happens that today's the 2nd monthiversary since my hiatus back in September. Gosh does time really fly.

Fly it really does as it was also Chai Leng and I's 8th anniversary last week (HAPPY ANNIVERSARY BABY!!).

Well life's been pretty shiat lately. Have lots goin on in the background while I'm trying to straighten up coming up to exams. Thank god I've been spending the last 23 years of my life being a bumm such that I still have some study stamina to spare. Don't choke out on the final lap.

Well to be fair, things are starting to get better. I realised that life's starting to be all about making choices. Lets not even talk about making the right ones. Sometimes, having to make a choice at all is half the difficulty. Let just hope things continue to get better. And as usual, I never disappoint. Here's the joke of the month. Hope you enjoy the craic.

Two Aussie builders (Phil and Eric) are seated either side of a table in a rough pub when a well-dressed man enters, orders a beer and sits on a stool at the bar. The two builders start to speculate about the occupation of the suit.

Phil: - I reckon he's an accountant.
Eric: - Nah. I reckon he's a stockbroker.
Phil: - No way. A stockbroker wouldn't come in here!

The argument repeats itself for some time until the volume of beer gets the better of Phil and he makes for the toilet. On entering the toilet he sees that the suit is standing at a urinal. Curiosity and the several beers get the better of the builder.

Phil: - 'Scuse me mate. No offence but me and me mate were wondering what you do for a living?
Suit: - No offence taken. I'm a Logical Scientist by profession.
Phil: - What's that then?
Suit: - I'll try to explain by example... Do you have goldfish at home?
Phil: - Er... Mmm . Well yeah, I do actually.
Suit: - Well, it follows logically that you keep them in a bowl or in a pond. Which is it?
Phil: - They're in a pond!
Suit: - Well then it's reasonable to suppose that you have a large garden.
Phil: - Too right - it's huge!
Suit: - Well then it's logical to assume that if you have a large garden then you have a large house?
Phil: - Bloody oath I've got a big house! Five bedrooms .....built it with me own hands!
Suit: - Well given that you've built a five-bedroom house it is logical to assume that you haven't built it just for yourself and that you are quite probably married?
Phil: - Mate, I'm married to the greatest sheila on earth and we've got three great kids.
Suit: - Well then it is logical to assume that you are sexually active with your wife on a regular basis?
Phil:- Yep! Four nights a week! At least!
Suit: - Well then it is logical to suggest that you do not masturbate very often?
Phil: - Me? You're kiddin me right? Never!
Suit: - Well there you are! That's logical science at work!
Phil: - How's that then?
Suit: - Well from finding out that you had goldfish, I've told you about your sex life!
Phil: - Awesome, mate!

Both leave the toilet and Phil returns to his mate.

Eric: - I see the suit was in there. Did you ask him what he does?
Phil: - Yep! He's a logical scientist!
Eric: - What's that then?
Phil: - Lemme explain. Do you have goldfish?
Eric: - Nope.
Phil: - Well then, you're a wanker.

And suddenly, there is only 2 weeks left in my calender before I fly back to Belfast!

I have so much yet to do! Clinical project to write up, friends to meet for one last time, things to buy, packing to do, parents to love, and more than all that, preparing myself to go back after being growing used to this place again. Sigh.

Boy this couple of months have been great. More than the food really, more than great weather, more than being home. I've found myself 3 months that has taught me more than the whole of last year. I've had ups and downs within this that has shown me who are the people I really love and really love me.

I've had a brilliant attachment, met a great bunch of new friends, I've reunited with old ones, been reminded of good ol times, and most importantly, I realised how much I love my baby.

So guys, yea so life does suck when it sucks. But boy when it is good, damn it's good :)

So take a breath of fresh air, put on corinne bailey rae's "call me when you get this" on ur player, and tell yourself what a brilliant day it is gonna be today!

The smile on your face comes automatically :)

Aching heart, voices longing to be spoken,
How complicated, Am I already broken?
So many places, wanting attention,
So many people, yet forgiven,

Why is this, so so difficult?

The noise outside; blarring,
This emptiness within; how consuming,
This journey of mine; confusing,
Who here will listen, to my musing?

Why is this, so so difficult?

I have everything, yet I have nothing,
What is Love, if without trust,
I so tired, so tired of proving,
Dying to rest, if I could just.

Why is this, so so difficult?

In the end, it's quite simple,
The grace of God, make it your staple,
For finally, if you can't face your Maker,
What is the meaning of this all, this journey we've taken?

Blonde Joke

Sorry dudes for the lack of posts lately. You know le, busy eating and all :p

Anyway, this joke is dedicated to all the young budding doctors back in the UK who are working their socks off for a country whom they just gave half their fathers wealth away to train them. I pray you will be able to recover your investment. 'We' I meant. Damn.

At least we can take solace in the fact that, Malaysian housemen are probably working twice as hard, but are getting paid 7 times less (joking oni lah..)

Enjoy the joke.

Blonde Joke

Tom, a handsome dude, walked into a sports bar around 9:58 PM. He sat down next to this blond at the bar and stared up at the TV. The 10:00 news was on. The news crew was covering a story of a man on a ledge of a large building preparing to jump.

The blond looked at Tom and said, "Do you think he'll jump?"

Tom says, "You know, I bet he'll jump." The blond replied, "Well, I bet he won't."

Tom placed a $20 bill on the bar and said, "You're on!"

Just as the blond placed her money on the bar, the guy on the ledge did a swan dive off the building, plummeting to his death. The blond was very upset and handed her $20 to Tom,
saying, "Fair's fair. Here's your money."

Tom replied, "I can't take your money, I saw this earlier on the 5 o'clock news and so I knew he would jump.


The blond replies, "I did too; but I didn't think he'd do it again."

Tom took the money.
