ok i should revive this blog coz it's kinda dead.
i bought a keyboard and a guitar! I think the model is CDP 100. it's a full size keyboard with weighted keys but I don't really like the sound quality from the keyboard as I think yamaha one is better. Otherwise it was a really good keyboard for its price and it came with a stand and headphones too! I bought the guitar after looking on my uni portal ( i still had access that time) and one guy was sellign it second hand! so lucky!
so i thought since i started working, i should start looking after myself more. you know with those nights and winter months coming, I'd better start moisturising my skin and protect it from aging! i spent many hours loitering around the beauty section of a departmental store because i was so scared to approach the sales girl to ask questions HAHA. some of the products had no price tags on and i didn't know what the functions are (clarifying lotion, serum, cleanser, toner etc). who knows later i feel obliged into buying the products before doing proper research on others first.
The borghese cleanser was a rather impulsive buy coz it was on sales and it was quite cheap. I haven't started using it as i'm still using my other cleanser. I love the shiseido moisturising lotion to bits!i hv used a few moisturising lotions before and they are either sticky or cause redness on my face. this one doesn't stick to my face after applying and it's so smooth and absorbs so well! i think it was 37pounds for a 75ml bottle but it's the best i've tried! when i go back msia, i shall stock up on this brand.

i wish you could stop pulling out your cannulas or NG tube because you know how difficult it is to put one in and yet you do not appreciate our effort and time in helping you get better.
I wish you could leave some sweets/chocolates (preferably not celebrations but Thorntons or something better or home bake food please) for us before being discharge because who knows it will be our lunch when it gets busy on the ward.
I wish you would know us by our first names instead of doctor coz it sounds more personal and it makes us feel more appreciated because you bothered to look at our name card.
I wish you would help us ease our burden by allowing the phlebs take your blood instead of requesting doctors to do it.
I wish you would know that there's no point trying to fake a pain because we know you are.
I wish you could differentiate us between nurses so that you do not call me a nurse whenever I walk past you.
I also wish that you wouldn't trouble us with things like trying to get to the toilet/commode but wait patiently for the nurses to respond to your buzzer.

I just returned from a trip in Germany with the sisters. I really love Germany because the transport system is a lot better than UK and it's so organised! We got very confused a few times though and wasted some precious time waiting for a subway that never came because we didn't understand the system. But I like the way the transport works in which it tries to make traveling cheaper and easier for people traveling in groups. For example, the partner-day ticket allows a maximum of 5 people to travel on a 9.80euro day rider which would cost about 1.96euros per person which is so cheap!
overall I also thank God for the smooth journey we had when the sisters traveled together. There were a few mini bickerings (as steph put it) throughout the trip but fortunately there wasn't any major emotional damage. I have also managed to withstand Steph's criticism who said the only good picture I took of her was this pic below lololol. hahaha :P
But am also glad and thank God that they tolerated me throughout the trip because I took them to walk a super long journey to Hofbrahaus instead of using the subway and they tolerated my crankiness and blurness haha. It's quite amazing how God gives people of the same parents and same upbringing different personalities and character and how we can still tolerate and love each other despite the differences. how boring life would be without these sisters around to keep me company heheh :)

many people have asked me what have I been doing since exams ended last thurs.
Next week the 3 sisters will be off in Germany and we haven't planned the itinerary for it yet. But the good thing is that we got accommodation and transport sorted.

Well not literally the end end but the end of this chapter in life.
So, I need prayers! For my exams, esp OSCE! Also pray for others sitting for 5th yr finals: Esther, Thaz, Yau, MH, Cindy, Bette, Ryle n Sing Yee. I think we are all prepared for exams (in terms if knowledge) already but having knowledge is useless if we don't know how to apply it. Nerves are always the main problem which can deter us from thinking clearly and cause us to stumble in our words. So do pray for God's peace and His clarity.
My exams schedule:
5,6th may - written n slide show
11,12th may- osce

Somehow I felt very heavy-hearted. five years of med school is going to end in 2 weeks' time when finals are over. student life is going to end too! meaning to student discounts for me anymore lolz!
One chapter of life has closed and another is going to open soon.
Different place and different people.
gonna end with this Y U NO meme hahaha. i bet everyone must be super bored with it now.

last friday was my last day of placement as a med student! I cant believe time flew by so fast! Another 5 weeks and it will be our finals.
Gonna miss the time in the Harrogate house with these two English friends! Just now at home, Esther was saying that F said hi to her and it was the first time a British person did that to her after lecture.

Two things to praise God for this week:
1. Jon has started on a new med and praise God that he says he doesn't have any side effects from it! (other than 3 days of headache when he was first on it)
2. The inner peace I felt from God that I know He will be leading the way for me.
Have a good weekend!
Lots of love,

The jobs allocation for foundation year came out last week and I got Hull!
For a while i wasn't very pleased with the results because Hull wasn't my first 50 choices (it was my 197th choice) and I wanted a paeds job in one of the districts in west Yorkshire. But after looking at the rotation I got, I felt that I should be grateful that I was given banded jobs (which means there are on calls, hence more experience n money lol) and my rotation consists of endocrinology, elderly n surgery which are quite good rotations in my opinion. So I am actually very happy with the allocations.
However I just realized today that I won't be able to go back to Leeds/Bradford (west yorkshire) in my fy2 as hull is categorised under the north Yorkshire deanery so I will be doing my fy2 training in the districts of north Yorkshire. It means that I will need to rebuild my network of friends and community. It also means I will be leaving Leeds for at least 2 yrs n might need to leave the responsibilities I have been entrusted upon as it willbe inconvenient for me to travel to and fro between hull n Leeds. I will not be there to witness the 'blooming' of my medics juniors as they enter phase II of med school n graduate. It's something like planting a flower from a seed and not being able to see it blossom.
I guess I have become very fond of Leeds afterall. Steph is working in Leeds next year so there's a place to stay when I come over for a visit. But I think what I will miss most would be serving God and His people in Leeds.

It's quite amazing how God always try to bring us back to Him even though we have sinned against Him and hurt Him so much. His love is always everlasting, always unfailing, always unconditional and it comforts us in time of need.
1 Cor 13: 4-7 reminds us of how love is.
4 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
Try substituting with your name and you will realise how difficult it is to love. Janice is patient, Janice is kind. Janice does not envy, Janice does not boast...I failed at the first line ad LOL. But if you substitute it with God, God is patient, God is kind...God always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. It fits the character of God because God is love.
1 John 4:8 says it aptly, "Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love."
Whenever people fail or hurt us or do not deserve forgiveness, remember that God is love and that we have been called by God to love one another just as He has loved us (John 15:12).
