Pride And Prejudice.

".....I love you...most ardently.."

"I will have to tell you...you have bewitched me, body and soul...and I love...I love..I love you. I never wish to be parted from you from this day on."

-Mr. Darcy-

I am very fond of romantic movies particularly the ones that include English accent in it; and I will always be whole-heartedly engaged with the emotional journeys the characters had to undergo before they finally realize they are in love with each other.

This specific movie that I've watched yesterday; Pride and Prejudice (2005), seemingly beautiful and rather generously feed my romanticism need of happy ending. Both Elizabeth Bennett(Keira Knightley) and Mr. Darcy(Matthew Macfayden) look so well together, matched very finely in so many aspects - I dare to say, one of the best movie-screen couple I've ever seen. The accent is just right to fit my fancy. But somehow, I couldn't feel fully satisfied as if something was missing. I watched it a few times in hope to nail what is lacking in any of the scenes. The pieces are put together so accordingly, I didn't even feel bored watching it over and over again.

Just like Kathleen Kelly(Meg Ryan) in 'You've Got Mail" said, " Confession, I have read Pride and Prejudice about 200 times! ....I am always in agony over whether Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy are really going to get together...read it, I know you'll love it!".

I shall read it soon.

But still, something is missing or shall I say, incomplete. The movie ended too soon, perhaps.

I want to see more of Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy!

Note: 7:33pm; Sarinah made me realize, there isn't any kissing scene at all in this movie...see, 'romantic' isn't always need physical display of affection! Heh.

Final meds' results were out today. We were just finishing up our respiratory lecture with Mr O' Regan; were heading out of the lecture theater and realized some of the final med students swarming in front of the board, checking up their results. Looking at their faces and their smiles, I couldn't help but to feel really motivated and inspired. They are Junior Doctors now! Finally after 6 years of hard work!

When I first arrived here in Galway, they were all just fourth meds - exactly where I am now! Starting from today onwards, they all are Doctors!! Some of them are staying, I believe so - to complete their internship in UCHG or any other hospital in the region, but some are leaving Galway for good to serve the country. It still feels like yesterday when I got to know this dear Galway and to know them- and now, they are leaving this place plus leaving fond memories and markings of their presents which clearly felt deep in my heart.

Congratulations to all the final med students. All the best for all of you in future undertakings.

Heh, I am so inspired yet so scared...could I be as good as them in 3 years time?

Pray for me everyone.

For a good while I haven't been out playing basketball with the girls. I was always busy with something.

Last weekend I finally was out with them despite the awful weather and phewwww~ to shed some sweats is freakin' worth it! (sorry for the language, it was a bad influence from Eamonn). Anyway, just now I was out playing basketball again and ohh yeah babe - with Eamonn's basketball team!

They are super good and I feel like a small miniature between those super tall GUYS- heh, and those guys..they are super kawaii(Japanese for cute) too!

I definitely enjoyed myself allright! Eamonn said I am good with the ball-hah! Yeah right-I think I look like a retard holding a ball when I was standing between those pros. Haha!

I know I can be a little stubborn sometimes (I say)
A little righteous and too proud
I just wanna find a way to compromise
Cause I believe we can work things out

I thought that I had all the answers
never givin in
but baby since you've gone
I admit I was wrong

All I know is I'm lost without you
I'm not gonna lie
how am I gonna be strong without you
I need you by my side
if we ever say we'd never be together
in the end you wave goodbye
dunno what I'd do
I'm lost without you

I keep trying to find my way
and all I know is I'm lost without you
I keep trying to face the day
I'm lost without you

How am I ever gonna get rid of these blues
baby I'm so lonely all the time
everywhere I go I get so confused
your the only thing that's on my mind

On my bed so cold at night
I miss you more each day
only you can make it right
no I'm not too proud to say

All I know is I'm lost without you
I'm not gonna lie
how am I gonna be strong without you
I need you by my side
if we ever say we'd never be together
in the end you wave goodbye
dunno what I'd do
I'm lost without you

I keep trying to find my way
and all I know is I'm lost without you
I keep trying to face the day
I'm lost without you

If I could only hold you now
make the pain just go away
can't stop the tears from running down my face

All I know is I'm lost without you
I'm not gonna lie
how am I gonna be strong without you
I need you by my side
if we ever say we'd never be together
in the end you wave goodbye
dunno what I'd do
I'm lost without you

I keep trying to find my way
and all I know is im lost without you
I keep trying to face the day
an all I know is
I'm lost without your love
I keep trying to find my way
and all I know is
I'm lost without you
I'm lost without you

Ohh Yeah!

Whenever I fell unhappy, I really f e e l the 'unhappy'ness, down and miserable; those feelings would colour my face - dull. I do, it did! I just hate it when it happen. I just couldn't help myself from drowning in my emotions. But lately, I think I've learnt how to handle those emotions - whenever I feel down, I would say to myself "I feel down because I couldn't see the silver linings underneath that black clouds. If I'd try harder, maybe I might even see the sun shining behind the clouds". It works! I'd start feeling a bit better and I could smile again. Well, honestly most of the time it would work. When it didn't, I'd just cry. Well, that helps too! =)

Anyway last Saturday, we had this BBQ for 3rd meds and it was just terrific-despite the rain later in the afternoon. Food was great, the people are just cool. And I enjoyed it so, I even came out with a theme for it. "St. Enda's BBQ, brings out the child in YOU!". Haha!

So here's some photos - of which some credited to my partner in crime, Miss Amira. Enjoy! (If you still don't know by now, you can actually click on the picture to make it bigger. Just so that you know). Later darlings~

two coolest people in the croud.Haha

Malaysian students are known for their ability to wake up early in the morning just to attend the medical conference - and to grab some goodies and free breakfast along with it. It's clearly evidential every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday morning. Hah!

Having a great day today, medical conference in Merlin was above average - not only the case is unique (patient was first presented with pneumonia-like-symptoms but end up diagnosed as having infective endocarditis) - but the food served *burpp* nice Indian food; rice and naan and chicken and lamb and veg, plus free goodies from some drug company. Hah!

Went to town this afternoon with Amira; hunting for sunshades. We got one all right- but after we treat ourselves with dress and socks from Penneys, plus that gorgeous strawberry tart when we finally heading out to the right place to get the sunshades. We got one each from Dorothy Perkins for just 6.40 Euro because today they have one day 20% discount for all items. Hah!

Never thought I would own sunshades. My first one, ever. Hah!

So tired. COPD just have to wait. Nite2.

Upside Down.

Once upon a time, I wish I was secretly married to a singer. Then, I would have all his songs sang just for me. Well, every other girls would think that he sang the songs for them when it all actually were meant for me. Every single word, just for me. Just imagine...

".....I never meant to do those things to you.
And so I have to say before I go.
That I just want you to know
I found a reason for me..
to change who I used to be..
a reason to start over new..
and the reason is you..
I'm sorry that I hurt you..."

The Reason

..he would sing this when he did something wrong, bended on one knee asking for forgiveness...

"Per te, per te, vivrò
L'amore vincerà
Con te, con te avrò
Mille giorni di felicità
Mille notti di serenità
Farò quello che mi chiederai
Andrò sempre dovunque tu andrai
Darò tutto l'amore che ho per te"

For you, For you, I’ll live
Love is gonna win
With you, With you, I’ll have
Hundreds days of happiness
Hundreds nights of serenity
I’ll do what you’ll ask me to
I’ll go always anywhere you go
I’ll give all the love I feel for you

Per Te
Josh Groban

...he'll sing this when he feels extra romantic...
well, the translated version sounds rather lame..

"Another night goes by without sleeping
'Cause I know I won't wake up next to you
Another life goes by without dreaming
And I can't help but think that mine will too

I'm standing before you with this label on my head
I'm pleading before you for you to understand

Baby it's you
When I look up in the sky I see you
Then I turn and close my eyes
It's you
When I'm sitting all alone in my room
everything reminds me of you"

It's You
Ryan Cabrera

...he would sing this whenever he misses me because I was so busy with hospital and patients and didn't spend enough time with him..

Wouldn't that be nice? Hahahahahah..I wish!

Okay, I've grown old enough to realize that wishes are just part of my dreams that will never come true. *shrug*

Still, it'll be great to have someone special singing me a love song no matter how tone-deaf he is...

Haha...what is the matter with my brain today??? Ignore these, please!

Anyway, I miss Accident and Emergency department...*sigh*

Snickers Addict.

Last weekend I found myself in the hardest situation. I was having the most horrendous crave ever - over Snickers bar. I was just twisting and turning on my bed, feeling everything is just out of place. And I ran out of Snickers, which usually conveniently stacked in my drawer. Great. As long as I could remember, that was the first time I've ever seriously crave over a chocolate bar. Unfortunately, I was too lazy to go to the shop and buy one. Heh, I end up stirring hot cocoa in a mug and enjoyed each sips - imagining I was munching Snickers instead.

I told you, sometimes I could be so pathetic.

First day of respiratory attachment. B O R I N G is how I would describe it in one word. Hope this selfish overview will change by the end of this month. Peace.
