Yesterday I very nearly cried. But I’m fine. My life, humdrum as it is, will not revolve around enigmatic idiots. The passion has fizzled out and I don’t exactly miss it. I don’t wish to spend my (insert name of glorious fruit)-eating minutes feeling forlorn and wistful. I will eat the last box tomorrow with all my past fervour. 有就有，没有就没有， 地球照常运转，太阳依旧升起！
Accompanied papa to eye centre for his cataract op. Cataract leh! Although they still have a healthy sense of humour, I must admit my parents’ health is giving in to age. My mum sprained her left knee in Bangkok (on the first night!) and I brought her to the Bumrungrad International Hospital, which turned out to really international, with a translator for every language in the world. I felt really grown-up to handle the crisis without “adult intervention”, save for some very useful advice given by the good people from the NTUC INCOME SOS hotline. My mum had a jab and we found ourselves navigating the winding alleys of Jatujak an hour later. She couldn’t walk without aid before that! Nothing can separate a woman and her shopping.
I slowly feel the switching of roles between my parents and me: very often, they are now the cared-for while I am the caregiver. I am comfortable with my newfound role thus far, but am uncertain about the future. I guess I will learn along the way. Bringing papa to his follow-up tomorrow! 8.30 am- that’s chickentikkamasala early. Wonder if I’ll see Brabra!
Happy Valentine’s Day, everyvun.
If you’d like to profess your love to someone here’s a cute way to do it: http://bureauofcommunication.com/compose/romanticintent
Went for wsdp at Bras Basah with mum and sis. It’s my second time hearing Sister Sylvia Bay speak and she’s such a good speaker!
“Love is a feeling. Period. A feeling that arises in the presence of something.”
“Where there’s a very strong hate, there’s a very strong want.”
“The more you think about yourself, the less time you have for others.”
“Pain is due to two things: unmet expectations and attachment to the good feelings you get when you’re in love.”
Hmm. I should stop letting soppy love songs like 氧气 (如果你爱我 你会来找我 你会知道我 快不能活） jeopardize my sanity.
Looked in the mirror that day and saw that my nose is too big for my own good.
Sometimes I think I’m spoilt rotten by my parents.
My papa has enthusiastically stashed several NTUC recycling bags in our luggage so he could “help carry my shopping”.
And he pays for all the shopping too….
My mummy says she’ll treat me to Ah Mei’s concert because I’m “not earning any money”.
Aww i love them to bits.

HAHAHA…… i think Body shd be C. and Finance, B. Mind is A LOR!
Love C…. yes accurate.
just when i thought i could finally fall in love with someone, i realised things arent always what they seem. more interaction really lets you know if you could get along. communication is so important, and i guess i havent found someone who speaks the same language as me. oh wells maybe i shdnt take such a pragmatic approach to something so irrational.
but the prospect of falling in love was really kinda ticklish to the heart. a bit bittersweet, slight uncertainty. 大概只是贪恋那种忐忑的感觉。陷下去后又嫌痛苦。 人就是这样！
