Me? Loser with a Capital 'L' !?

I thought my 2-week sick leave was about to end when another medical problem surfaced on Wednesday afternoon. I had to spend a few hours visiting doctors and the hospital. Looks like I have to 'hibernate' for quite some time. duh.

A good friend who came a visiting, told me that I was really suay (unlucky) and that I have a kiam chye mia (loser's life). Do I?

I have been working very hard on my new projects these few months. It hit a snag with the local government officials of a certain country. I was to dine and fill their pockets - again.

Subsequently, I decided to have a short orgy holiday trip before plunging into my work again. Less than 10 minutes of getting my hotel room key, I tumbled and spent my holiday, with a broken heart *sob sob*, cooped up in a hotel room. ish.

Good things happened though. I gained some great friendship - real life and virtual. Enjoyed some yummy delicacies. Met up with friends and relatives whom I haven't seen for some time. My bad, I was too busy. Had a long and wonderful rest.... and a small fortune. hehehe.....

Throughout my ordeal of the past two weeks, I remained optimistic and high-spirited. I'm broken in body, not in spirit. Well, I think I'm a good example of 'when life hands you lemons, you make lemonade.' hehehe....

    Wait a minute now, there is nothing bad with Lemonade. Lemons are good for your body. A lemon a day, keep the doctor away! Have a fine SINGAPORE day!

  22. Perhaps you need some time just for you. Take a few hours or a few minutes to go deep inside of your self and be still feel the quiet and let all thoughts pass in and out and do nothing but observe. Stay inside yourself and feel what your body is saying. When you are done get up stand in front of mirror and smile at the person there wink and tell yourself how good you are.

    Singapore is a wonderful place to live. It might be too small for your liking but it's safe and has a great international airport.

    Hope to see you back in Singapore again. ^-^

  35. Oh dear ... what's up?!

    This must be a conspiracy ... as though some "higher power" wants you to take a rest and keep quiet.
