i'm inclined to share with you my quiet time which I did on my way back home from Bradford. It was in the book of Matthew, chapter 9 where Jesus called Matthew to be one of his disciples and although it was short passage, it spoke to me.
Matthew 9:99 As Jesus went on from there, he saw a man named Matthew sitting at the tax collector’s booth. “Follow me,” he told him, and Matthew got up and followed him.
The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit; a broken and contrite heart, O God, you will not despise.By being broken, we can approach God humbly; not proud, not arrogant, not relying on our strength and not being selfish.

i cant believe it's time for me to apply for my foundation year job! Time really flies. Last week my group taught the third years examination skills and looking at them really reminded me of how I was when I was in their position. I remember doing things and performing certain steps in the examination bit very slowly for fear of making a mistake. And that was what I saw in the third year student when she was checking the visual field of her group mate.
A Time for Everything1 There is a time for everything,
and a season for every activity under heaven:
2 a time to be born and a time to die,
a time to plant and a time to uproot,
3 a time to kill and a time to heal,
a time to tear down and a time to build,
4 a time to weep and a time to laugh,
a time to mourn and a time to dance,
5 a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them,
a time to embrace and a time to refrain,
6 a time to search and a time to give up,
a time to keep and a time to throw away,
7 a time to tear and a time to mend,
a time to be silent and a time to speak,
8 a time to love and a time to hate,
a time for war and a time for peace.

I'm so excited i can't contain this excitement anymore.
I have finally left my old house which I have inhabited for 4 years. The room i'm living now is slightly cheaper and smaller than the previous one but overall, I'm very pleased with my new room because,
bigger floor space for Esther to hula hoop lolz and play board game/cards ad. There's even space for the guitar!! *gasp* hahaha. But note the small entrance into the space (in the picture on the right) which is limited by the edge of the bed and a shoe rack

I'm back from Vienna! I'm totallly knackered with a slight headache probably due to dehydration. But I hope with a good rest tonight, I will be able to resume to my revision. I was so worried that the volcanic ash would cause cancellations in flights but thank God nothing happened and we went and arrived back safely!
The presentation went quite well. One of tutors reminded us many times to introduce ourselves as medical students so that the expectations on us were not high. But still, we were still shot with questions and my groupmate tactfully answered them!
One of our supervisor in Leeds for this presentation who is the chair of the afternoon session. Apparently he's one of the 'big cheese' as my groupmates call it which I think means he has control and power over the whole conference. Knowing that we were unable to handle the questions due to our inexperience, he quickly cut off everyone's questions by telling everyone that time was running out and the next group should present.
At the end of the conference, many people came up to our group to congratulate us on our good work. My tutor told us that there haven't been any students coming to their annual conference for some time already.

As promised, I said I would update about this upcoming Vienna trip which is gonna happen in 2 weeks' from now.
I was fortunate to have been involved in an audit for my year-long SSC project which evaluated the use of drugs in MH (Malignant Hyperthermia)reaction in the past 2 decades. As the condition is very rare, there is only one unit in the whole of UK which is based in Leeds. My tutor told the group that he was pleased with our work and suggested that we should present our findings in the annual meeting in Vienna when all MH units from all around Europe come together to meet.
It is a good opportunity, but the downside is that all expenses have to be from our pocket :(
Exams are less than 5 weeks away and some time off abroad is not very good for my revision.
Finger-crossed + toe-crossed that i can catch up with revision.

Everytime when I'm under stress or when I'm in the centre of attention, my face will become flushed and spots of rashes start appearing on my neck.
My housemate who always happens to be in the same group as me whenever I present or take a history said, "我每次坐在那边只是在看你像变色龙变色" (I always see you change colour like a chameleon).

To let go...
doesn't mean you stop caring, it just means you can't do it for them
is not to cut them off, but to realise you can't control them
is not to enable, but to allow them to learn from their consequences
is to admit powerlessness, which means the outcome is not in your hands and it never was!
is not to try to change or blame somebody else but to make the most of yourself
is not just to care for but to care about
is not to fix but to be supportive
is not to be in the middle arranging all the outcomes but to allow others to affect their own destinies
is not to be protective but to permit them to face reality
is not to deny but to accept
is not to nag, scold or argue but to search out your own shortcomings and work on them
is not to adjust everything to your desires but to take each day as it comes and cherist yourself in it
is not to criticise or regulate others but to try to become what you dream you can be
is not to regret the past but to grow and to live in the present
is to fear less...trust God...and love more!

'What is crucifixion? A medical doctor provides a physical description:As he slowly sags down...on the nails in the wrists, excruciating pain shoots along the fingers and up the arms to explode in the brain; the nails in the wrists are putting pressure on the median nerves. As he pushes himself upward to avoid stretching torment, he places the full weight on the nail through his feet. Again he feels the agony of the nail tearing through the nerves between the bones of the feet. As the arms fatigue, cramps sweep through the muscles, knotting them in deep, relentless, throbbing pain. With these cramps comes the inability to push himself upward to breathe. Air can be drawn into the lungs but not exhaled. He fights to raise himself in order to get even one small breath...hours of this limitless pain, cycles of twisting, joint-rending cramps, intermittent partial asphyxiation, searing pain as tissue is torn from his lacerated back as he moves up and down against the rough timber. Then another agony begins: a deep, crushing pain in the chest as the pericardium slowly fills with serum and begins to compress the heart. It is now almost over; the loss of tissue fluids reaches a critical level; the compressed heart is struggling to pump heavy, thick, sluggish blood into the tissues; the tortured lungs are making a frantic effort to gasp in small gulps of air. He can feel the chill of death creeping through his tissues...finally he can allow his body to die.'
Thank You for dying on the cross dear Lord ♥

The practical way to prevent it is to keep warm as much as possible.
1. Sheepskin boots
Yay, I finally received my sheepskin boots today! Hdhl has got quite an efficient service in texting me the approximate delivery of me boots and it arrived quite on time. Fortunately Lynda was at home to get them (TQ!)
The story of how this pair of boots came about was quite long. I have been doing some research online on sheepskin boots and my initial target was ugg. But unfortunately they came with a hefty price and there were so many fakes online. So to play safe, I decided to settle with emu boots instead.
However, lolz, I realised that I have missed the most recent sales when the boots were actually sold for 38pounds! The cheapest offer I could get online was 55pounds :(
Then finally I came across this website which gave really good comparison on footwear sold by online retailers. I saw this pair of boots by Just Sheepskin which was sold for only 60pounds (reduced from 95) by Office! And they had my size ! After what seems like a thousand zillion years, I finally placed my order.
However, the price of the boots dropped a few days later to 50 pounds. Quite angry and disappointed because I felt cheated, I wrote them an email telling them that I wanted to cancel my order although I should have done that within 24 hours of ordering. They wrote to me back a week later telling me that (fortunately) there wasn't any stock available for the size 5 I wanted. I checked office website again and this time the boots was reduced to 35pounds! 35 from 95pounds! They had a size 6 available so I bought it although it was slightly bigger.
I know it might sound strange to some of you but I told God that if it is His will to let me have the boots then please let me have them. If not it's ok if I don't get them.
And I got the order invoice the very next day! Yipeeee!!! thank God!
Behold my comfy and warm boots...!!!
not ugg but me loveeeessss.
2. Hello Kitty bedroom slippers!
I like the fluffiness of it and the cuddly feeling as I put them on my feet. So nice and warm! Got them off Debenhams at a 70% discount which I thought was really worth the money.
