Jie : What is the passing mark?
Ben : 50
Jie : You got 50?
Ben : Nope, I failed...
Jie : 49?
Ben : Nope
Jie : Erm, 1?
Ben : Nope
Jie : I give up
Ben : I got negative 60. The dog that I prescribed medicine to died from overdosage. *laughs*
Ok, so my brother didn't really killed a cute lil puppy (thank goodness!), but it shows what he (and 75% of his classmate) can do wrong in a practical class exam.
Gosh, I don't trust pharmacist anymore!~
Heard from my brother that due to the prescription made by some of his classmates, Strathclyde has 50 over angry pregnant women.
Goodness, how can you prescribe contraceptive pills wrongly?!~
It's even more difficult when that same friend made you upset and you are angry towards him or her...
And sometimes, pride gets in the way...and you way to yourself "Why should I be a friend, when he or she hasn't been one to me lately?"
But then again, when things cool down after a few days, take the time to think....
Is your x number of years of friendship worth more than your pride?
Do you value your friendship that much that you are willing to put aside your anger towards that friend?
Are you willing to take a step back and say "I'll be here for you as a friend..."?
It may be the case that the whole world has walked out on your friend, but are you one of them to?
Or are you willing to hold on to your friends' hand, and tell him or her that you are here?
I know that I've been very blessed through out these years to have really good friends, who have been through with me in all phases of my life, especially when I'm at my downest moments.
I've indeed know who are my fair-weathered friends and who are my true friends.....
And as you get older (like me), you will realise how precious friendship are (it sounds like a cliche, but it is exactly what it is)....
And sometimes, you are willing to sacrifice more to preserve this very special bond...
Dedicated to all my friends out there - a BIG THANK YOU! from the bottom of my heart & soul......
Fake friends are like autumn leaves,
But true friends are like
ever precious and rare

5. My bro fell into the moonsoon drain outside school and came out with a nasty bruise on his head. All of us ("aunty bus" & busmates) panicked, but my bro was laughing & laughing all the way. From there on, the damage was irreversable, hence the Ben you know today!~

Warning : The images that you are about to see may contain images or violent/horror and should only be viewed by a mature reader.
I liked this movie very much, though it may be too violent for children below 12.
No spoilers intended, so do watch the movie yourself to find out!

I found out that Q is seeing someone (let's call this someone Z), who is already married, with kids.
I asked Q if Q thinks that it is appropriate to be in such a relationship.
Q's response is that Z's marriage is just a piece of cert and that piece of cert should not govern what Q & Z are having now.
Z is unwilling to leave this marriage, for the children's sake.
I'm not stating this to judge. I've no rights to judge, for I try to live up to the "Let him who is without sin cast the first stone"....
This post is not to condemn those who are in a similiar situation, nor is it for me to "impose my morality upon others, whom may have a different set of conscience" (quoted by Q)... but it's more of a post to express how I feel of this whole situation.
Firstly, I'm one who believes that marriage is not just a piece of cert. I may make jokes about marriages and being married, but on a serious note, I do take the "death do us part" vow seriously.
To me, it's not so much so as a piece of cert, but a covenant, an agreement that involves a life time commitment between husband and wife, and also to God. It's not something that we should say "Ok, let's just try it out and see if it works... If not, there's always divorce..." but rather "No matter what, I will have to work this out..."
I felt kinda "betrayed" when it was pointed out by Q that "it's just a piece of cert".
I wanted to shout "It is NOT just a PIECE of cert, damn it!"
But what do I know right?
Perhaps it is just me being naive, naive to believe in everything I thought marriages are meant to be.
Perhaps, end of it all, it may just be a piece of cheap paper.....

I feel that it is really reflecting my life - in another word, its boring.
Well, to be fair, it wasn't an interesting blog with entertaining post to begin with. But when you think black could not be black-er, white could not be white-er... this blog has morphed into being pretty mundane and ... sigh... just plain ol' boring.
I need to do something different - even if it's just a haircut. Been contemplating whether or not to curl my hair, but considering that it was a disaster (well, it wasn't that bad, but nonetheless, it wasn't as nice as I wanted it to be), I'm quite unwilling to part with my hard earned money (for the information of those who don't know me that well, I'm stingy *wink*). Unless I do it in Malacca, which I would only need to pay a fraction of the price, but the trade off would be compromising on the quality. Unless someone can recommend a good saloon in Malacca? :)
Just found out from my dad this morning that both my parents are flying to Bangkok this weekend. It's nice that they are taking more frequent vacations this year as my dad is nearing retirement, and plans to start holidaying and travelling around. Too bad I can't go, no thanks to work.
Looks like I will be alone this weekend, maybe get a lil time catching up with the CSI series' which I've been missing for the past months. Read somewhere that William Peterson (Gil Grissom) will no longer be appearing for CSI: Vegas . I love Gil Grissom's character, but I guess it's already time for him to leave, as the show was not as interesting as it used to be. Hopefully new blood will be able to bring back life to this show.
Have a nice weekend! :)
p/s : I know, the title of the blog is totally irrelevant, but I can't think of catchy titles anymore, so just bear with it :)

Love is patients, love is kind,
It does not envy, it does not boast,
It is not proud, it is not rude,
It is not self-seeking; it is not easily angered,
It keeps no record of wrong.
Love does not delight in evil,
But rejoice with the truth,
It always protects,
LOVE NEVER FAILS
Right now at this very minute-----------
is very proud of you
is thinking of you
cares about you
wants to talk to you
wants to be with you
hopes you aren't in trouble
is thankful for the support
you have provided
wants to hold your hand
hopes everything turns out all right
wants you to be happy
wants you to find them
is celebrating your successes
wants to give you a gift
think you ARE a gift
hopes you are not too cold, or too hot
wants to hug you
wants to lavish you with small gifts
admires your strength
is thinking of you and smiling
wants to be your shoulder
to cry on
wants to go out with you and have a lot of fun
thinks the world of you
wants to protect you
would do anything for you
wants to be forgiven
is grateful for your forgiveness
wants to laugh with you about old times
remembers you and wishes you were there
needs to know that your love is unconditional
values your advice
wants to tell you how much they care
wants to stay up watching old movies
wants to share their dreams with you
wants to hold you in their arms
wants YOU to hold them in your arms
treasures your spirit
wishes they could STOP time
can't wait to see you
wishes that things didn't have to change
loves you for who you are
loves the way you make them feel
wants to be with you
hears a song that reminds them of you
wants you to know they are there for you
is glad that you're their friend
wants to be your friend
stayed up all night thinking about you
is alive because of you
is wishing that you would notice them
wants to get to know you better
believes that you are their soul mate
wants to be near you
misses your guidance and advice
values your guidance and advice
has faith in you
needs your support
needs you to have faith in them
needs you to let them be your friend
will cry when they read this
He : You hair looks pretty as it is already...
She : But I want to look prettier...
He : But it is impossible to improve on perfection..
