Singapore Trip 1st & 2nd Dec 2010

Yeah!! I'm back from Singapore..Woohooo..an awesome trip with dear and my buddies ♥


We met up in Bugis on Wed morning and go around Bugis and Orchard for lunch as well as desserts..On the way, we passed by Iluma, a shopping mall located within the Bugis district of Singapore..The design of the building amazed me on the spot..Look at this!! WOW..
We went to a few shopping malls as my friends was hunting for some sports accessories before we headed to Costa sands chalet..gt myself a short pants and a note book & yogurt sweets + chocolate =D We met up with Chong Han & Vonn at Pasir Ris and reached the resort ard 7 o'clock..while the guys went to rent bicycles and get some food back..we had our girls talk session..LOL..We keep peeping outside as our next door was having bbq session..and we were thinking that those guys will get something like Hokien mee or whatever as our dinner...after half an hour.....


They finally came back!! with a lot of junk foods and ice-cream..LOL..We ended up having Subway as our dinner..YUMMY..I do ♥ Subway..Hahaha..After dinner, we headed to Raffles place which is located in the Downtown Core and the Central area of Singapore..took some pictures in front of esplanade and together with the Merlion...Passed by Fullerton Hotel, a hotel at the renovated old General Post Office building..the night view of Singapore river was really cool!!! XD Then, we went back to chalet again to meet up with Marcus after he came back from his drum session in school..the guys played poker cards and the girls take turn to bath..we then cycle to the beach around 12am..as we only rented 3 bicycles, we had to take a few rides to get all of us there..LOL..it reminds me of the game which ask us how do we get all the animals and foods across the river when the goat must not stay with the wolf and the chicken must stay with the rice etc etc..LOL..finally, we gt all 10 of us to the beach...
For the first time, we lay on the beach and look at the sky..stare at those stars..the sky was like a big big screen and my memory just flashed back to my secondary school times again..and it seems time flies so fast that I'm now already gonna do my pharmacy 2nd year..watching airplanes depart from the nearby Changi airport every ten minutes..the sound of the waves made me feel so relaxing..you just want to enjoy the peacefulness there..my mind was blank at that moment..just wanna cherish every second that we have..there is something magical about lying under the stars wrapped in the arms of the person you love most..after a while, all of us reached the beach and we had our "heart-to heart" talk session or rather "jokes" session..LOL..the funniest part of all...we chat till ard 3am and went bck to chalet to SLEEP!! all of us was exhausted..LOL..except kee who keep pestering the others by calling out their names in funny waysSs and asking lots of random questions..Hahahaha XD


On the next day, we went Tong Fong Fatt for lunch, which is a hainanese chicken rice stall..I found it tasted quite okay but not that excellent perhaps because I used to have chicken rice in KL and it tasted a bit different from the Singapore one..Anyway, it worth a try =D we went to mrt station and headed to Tampines to meet up with dear and Marcus again as they had class on that morning..Wilson went back to his school to attend for his lab test in the afternoon session..Had Mcd in Tampines Mall before we go to Bugis for Koi..For your information, Koi is a shop like each a cup, I love taimei, coolblog etc which sells bubble tea..is amazing for me eventhough it doesn't seem so to my other friends..LOL..perhaps partly because I love the original flavor the most..We always joke that perhaps someday when we sell computers we wanna do something like the Q-ing system in bank which separates out customers who wants to buy computer and made them Q up..and now I see that this Koi shop are doing this..you Q up and order ur drinks and collect a number..when the system show up ur number only you collect it at another counter..LOL..it actually works yeahhh... even to bubble tea stall.. =D
It started to rain just after we bought our Koi..we rushed to the bus station and all of us was wet!! LOL..Is like a war seriously...Esp when you run to custom..LOL..finally we reached home ard 8 o'clock after a big traffic jam due to the rain..


In conclusion, it is an amazing trip for me and I believe to all of us too..Thanks all!!! We will have our next trip in two weeks time!! Looking forward~ =D
That officially ends our Singapore trip 2010!!! =D

The Secret of Life : Being contented

Hey its me here blogging again =) I still not feeling tired yet cuz I just had a cup of mocha again =D The greatness of caffeine =) Starbucks is my all time favourite..but it is too ex for me..Im cutting it down =D..well~ now what to blog about today?? it suddenly popz out in my head while I transfer photos from my phone to my laptop to blog about my new life now being a pharmacy student..and some of my perspective on recent life..

It was my birthday 4 days ago..1st of Nov..that's why my favourite number had always been 1..one..and ONE =DD first of all, I would like to thank all of you for all the birthday wishes from you guys thru phone, facebook, inbox and meeting me in person..u guys are just way too awesome =) and I really cant deny that I had underestimated the power of facebook!! LOL.. I love it to communicate with my frens there and follow up their news from time to time thru facebook..I even linked back with my primary sch frens!! LOL..I'm not exaggerating..this might be normal to u guys but definitely not for me =) blurr?? okay this need to be trace back to 2002 when I was 12 years old..My grandpa passed away and left my grandma alone staying in my current house..so we moved there and stay with her and take care of her..due to this reason too, I changed my secondary sch from which I was supposed to go together with all my primary sch frens to the other secondary school which was nearer to my current house..and since then we lost contact..about 8 years..not until few years ago I accidentally met my primary sch fren on street that I know some of their latest updates..and till few months ago I saw them from facebook and that's how we link up again..some of them are still in JB, my hometown and some of them are in KL studying now and some even in my current area!! I'm so glad to keep in touch with u guys again =D 

Secondly, I need to clarify and re-ensure you guys that I didn't forget anyone of you =D my primary school friends, my Public Bank colleagues, my secondary school juniors and seniors, my St. John friends, my tuition classmates and my part-time-work colleagues !! =D I do remember each and everyone of you and I do miss you guys !! It is just that I had been too busy with my school work and are trying very hard now to adapt myself better with the current environment as well as trying to gain a balance between studies and my volunteering work..I'm so sorry that I had not been frequently contacting with you guys..but do remember that I miss you guys dearly too okay =D Don't worry I'll be having my end-of-semester holidays soon...and I may be able to meet u guys up =D

Now, back to our topic today on my life being a pharmacy student..
Life is just way too hectic for me..and I'm still trying hard to adapt..but nonetheless I feel very contented to be given a chance to work towards my dream, to work to achieve my target...

It had always been my dream and my target to become a pharmacist and to study in Monash as well..and I really thank God for blessing me all the way till today I successfully enroll to Monash pharmacy..and I believed and I do hope that I'll be able to complete this course..not purely just to realize my dream..it is also a way to repay my parents and to re-ensure them I'll be able to take care myself well in the future..and being the eldest, to take up the responsibility to take care of my siblings soon..I'm officially 20 now and I know that as you grow up older, you need to be responsible to more and more things..and I do pray and hope that I'll be able to cope it well =D It is really so heart-breaking to see my parents working so hard for my tuition fees which is such a huge amount to us and seeing them worrying about me staying alone outside..I know there will be much difficulties given to my procrastination..but I'll try to improve so that I can do better and breakthrough my personal limit..the boundary..(" break the boundary / there is no boundary"smth like that - inspired by the singapore airforce or something army force advertisement slogan =D)

I choose to become a pharmacist because I'm really passionate to work in medical field and I do hope that one day I'll be able to help more people with my profession..perhaps not much contribution that I'll be able to make but at least the best that I can give..I cant deny that it was part of the reason too that I think that this job should be able to secure my future as well..which is much more a realistic and main issue that parents nowadays are concern about..it short, make as much money as possible is all they want to see..and that's why you see a lot of parents sending their children to take up medical course no matter whether their children really wish to do so..of course, there are a lot of medical students who chose that course due to their interest as well..I'm just stating the situation that some of the students are facing.."Money" had always been the main issue at least in 60% of cases when students are choosing their pathway to go..either they are considering whether that profession will makes you earn "how much" or "how much" do we need to pay to send you to this course..but no matter how, I still believe that passion is the most important factor to consider when coming to choosing which course to take..It is the main factor to determine your future as well..just like a student who studying Law will become a lawyer in future and a student who study accounting will become an accountant in future..you cant have student studying Law to do accounts and an accounting student to become a lawyer..

When coming to the point to choose which university to go..I really believe that this is a very important issue to consider about now..this was not what I thought before I coming to Monash..because when I first enrolled, students from different countries and colleges all end up like me..going into the same Uni same school or even same course..at that point I do think that it doesn't really matter where are you coming from and who you are..you will all end up in the same place same position and it is just different pathways that each of you may had chose to bring you here today..a lot of people had always been telling me that you will end up to be a pharmacist no matter which university you go..why bother to pay more or bother to go so far..but things are just aren't that simple..a university and an environment shapes who you are..a spoon feeding teacher and a teacher who always force you to brainstorm will make a big difference in your thinking skills, capability as well as your personality..not just in studies but in life as well..this concept just make a huge difference..different course content will shape you to possess various characteristics and different level of sense of responsibility as well...the way the university is conducting and practicing does make a difference..and I do personally think that Hong kong and Singapore (in asia) are providing excellent education system..

Nonetheless, your personality and your determination decide who you will be in the future and your achievement that you will reach..to be frank I'm not quite a optimistic person..in fact negative thinking will first comes to my mind when I encounter a problem..which may not even in a problem to others..but ever since I joined MUVP, I've learned a very valuable thing from it..I'm not physically involve in volunteering work outside the university yet..still doing admin work..but the way the team works is just too awesome..impossible thing turns possible when everyone has a positive thinking and always encourage each other..each idea that presented by a member is a good idea and will be discuss and decide the action together..objectively evaluated and accept the outcome with open heart..and being pro-active, self-confident as well..who doesn't know that being optimistic is a good thing and encourage each other and unselfish-ly contribute will make a great difference..but how many people will actually practice that? I can't 100% do that..I do being very selfish sometimes in my life..that's  also part of the reason that makes me think that an environment is very important..a good university does not only provide you an environment to study to pursue your dream but it does shape your personality as well..which I think is the most important thing that I want to achieve in my life...

For some reason, I do see a lot of friends who viewed study as all that they have for their life..and if they cant perform as they targeted for themselves, they feel extremely disappointed and depress over it..well, to me, life is not just about study..there is a lot of other things that contribute to our life as well and it is important that we gain a balance between studies and the other factor..for example helping people-in-need, kinship, relationship, friendship etc..I've seen quite a lot of my friends or people who are same aged with me already owning a shop or starting their working career or like my MUVP team member who are constantly going for volunteering work such as with Dignity, Shelter home, WAO, Ps the Children etc....whether successfully or not, they are doing something that they want to achieve in life..and that proves that life is not just about study..there's a thousand of other things that you can do other than study..it is all about what you want to achieve and how you want yourself to be..what kind of person you want to be..and last but not least,

The secret of life : Being contented

I read some articles which were about being contented in life and one of it mentioned that 

"We are always aiming to achieve more. We believe that once we have reached a certain quota, we would have established the amount that would make us happy enough. The truth is, is you cannot appreciate what you have in this moment, you won't be able to appreciate anything else, because even if you have one million in your account, you will need two million to be happy. And on and on. Having a sense of direction is really having a goal. The difference is, our actions are more geared towards self expression as opposed to personal acquisition. "

Content makes poor men rich; Discontentment makes rich man poor - Benjamin Franklin

曾参教子,言而有信

曾子(前505—前436年),名参,字子舆,春秋时期鲁国人。孔子的得意弟子,以孝著称,后人尊为“宗圣”。
一天,曾参妻子忙着准备冬季服装,偏偏布料不够。她收拾好针线要上街,走到庭院时,正在做游戏的小儿子听说妈妈去赶集,缠着妈妈非要跟着去。天近晌午,带着孩子,慢腾腾地走去,恐怕啥事也办不成。曾参妻子劝他不要跟着,但小儿子哭闹不休。她被缠得无法脱身,就指着院里猪栏的猪说:“乖儿子,听话,好好在家玩。妈妈上街回来,杀了那头猪给你吃。”孩子很久没有吃到肉了,听妈妈说要杀猪给自己吃,破涕为笑说:“妈妈,你去吧!我在家里玩,等你回来杀猪。”
妈妈走后,孩子跑到后院书房,摇着曾参的胳膊说:“爹爹,有肉吃啦!”曾参放下竹简,奇怪地问:“哪来的肉?”小儿子乐颠颠地回答道:“妈妈说,她上街回来杀圈里的猪。杀了猪,不就有肉吃了么?”小儿子说着,仰着小脸,天真地问:“爹爹,这是真的吗?”“当然是真的!走,咱们磨刀去,你妈妈回来,正好杀猪。”小儿子高兴地跑前蹿后,帮着曾参忙活。
曾参的妻子从集市回来,远远就听见猪的叫声,以为家里出了什么事情,三步并作两步跑进院子。丈夫满头大汗地捆着猪,儿子拿一把雪亮的刀子等在一边。她慌忙上前,拦住曾参说:“你呀!读书读傻了,猪小,没喂肥,怎么能杀呢?”曾参擦着额头上的汗水,不解地问:“你不是亲口对儿子说,要杀猪给他吃么?”妻子笑着说:“你怎么和孩子一样见识,说杀猪就杀猪。我当时被儿子缠得没办法,哄他的呀!何必当真?”
“你怎么能哄骗孩子呢?”曾参收敛了笑容,严肃地对妻子说:“孩子小,父母的一言一行对他们都有影响。你今天哄骗了他,他以后也会学着你的样子去哄骗别人。再说,你在孩子面前说了假话,他很难再相信你的,以后还怎么对他进行教育?”
曾参的话,句句在理,说得妻子心悦诚服。她笑吟吟地帮助丈夫捆猪,杀猪。一切收拾妥当后,又架起柴火,煮了几块香喷喷的肉,让儿子饱餐一顿。儿子一边吃肉,一边兴奋地说:“妈妈,好妈妈,说话算数呢!


 欺得一时心,误得一世诚。微言有大义,言出必当真。
