Who knew?
You took my hand
You showed me how
You promised me you'd be around
ah huh that's right

I took your words
And I believed
In everything you said to me
yeah huh that's right

If someone said three years from now
You'd be long gone
I'd stand up and punch them out
Cause they're all wrong
I know better
Cause you said forever
And ever
Who knew

Remember when we were such fools
And so convinced and just too cool
oh no no no

I wish I could touch you again
I wish I could still call you a friend
I'd give anything

When someone said count your blessings now
'Fore they're long gone
I guess I just didn't know how
I was all wrong
But they knew better
Still you said forever
And ever
Who Knew

I'll keep you locked in my head
Until we meet again
Until we until we meet again
And I won't forget you my friend
What happened

If someone said three years from now
You'd be long gone
I'd stand up and punch them out
Cause they're all wrong and
That last kiss I'll cherish
Until we meet again
And time makes it harder
I wish I could remember
But I keep your memory
You visit me in my sleep
My darlin' who knew

My darlin' my darlin' who knew
My darlin' I miss you
My darlin' who knew

Who knew

exactly 6 months to the day since I left that wondrously wonderful wonderland of cendol and durian.
In the same dish. Hanya di Malaysia!

*deep sigh*

I'd sell my kidney (read - only one) for TTDI Restoran OK's curry mee right now. One lung lobe for nasi lemak kambing at Kinrara! and uh uh uh half my liver for Malacca chicken ball rice. Add the durian cendol and you can have my spleen too. Spphhleeeeennn

*deeper sigh*

10 more random fun facts about life in the Maritimes

1. A person from Halifax = Haligonian, not Halifaxian as I originally thought.

2. Apparently this is the warmest December ever. It's -5 degrees daytime temperature today. ANd yes I'll keep whining about the weather BECAUSE I LIKE LAR PAN.

3. Halifax has it's own genre of music, called Atlantic music. It's a prodigal crossbreed of country, 80's rock and traditional celtic music (think riverdance). If there's a ridiculous-sounding mangling of notes and rhythms in your head right now, you're probably imagining it right, and yes, it really DOES sound that bad.

4. Lobster is so plentiful it's like chapati. You know it's getting a bit ridiculous when you see McLobster, Subway Lobster sandwich and KFC Lobster and coleslaw surprise.

5. There are approximately 20 Malaysians studying in the whole of Atlantic Canada. We had a potluck. For some odd reason there wasn't a single Malaysian dish at the table. Nasi pun tada.

6. There are male nurses in Halifax. Not just one or two. Many many. The gay ones are accepted into the nursing community. The female nurses bake cookies for them and stroke their hair while complementing their nails. The straight ones are pushed around, insulted and made to look dumb by the rest. *shrug* A pitiful dynamic which shall not be expounded upon here.

7. Old white ppl smell funny.

8. Halifax is so boring that a law legalising Sunday shopping made headline news. Yes, shopping centres opening on Sundays were ILLEGAL. No freaking joke. What made it even more ridiculous was the opposition to the law front-paging newspapers for a week. A "tense" legal battle took place. Haligonians really have nothing better to do than protest idiotically trivial things like this. The inanity of it all preplexes me, drives me to mind-numbing speechlessness.

9. A lady once wrote in to the newspaper complaining about joggers. Why? Cause their footfalls on the sidewalk outside her house were too heavy and made too much noise it seems. And she ended her complaint with this statement "I laugh at you people everytime you bother my peace because I know that, in 10 years, you'll have to have both knees replaced from the punishment you're giving them now". Bladdy freaking dumb right. Dunno whether to laugh or smash my head into the wall.

10. uh...
You know it's boring when I can only think of 9 fun facts. I mean, come on, people take the time to organize their trash into 3 seperate bins while complaining about how Sunday shopping shouldn't be allowed and that ppl are jogging too loudly outside their houses. Orang putih really got too much time on their hands. Hanya di America Utara!

*deeperrer sigh*

Enough whining. It's tiring.
Video reminding me of home. Worth watching twice. Malaysia boleh man hohoho

is for the unprepared.

Of which I rank the highest.

The procratinator's prayer (best performed kneeling and sweating nervously) -
May my rapid fire skills serve me well tomorrow, as they have done so in the past 16 years
May educated guesses and brainwaves fill my sleep-deprived, caffiene-buzzed mind
May LFTs, LETs, PFTs, ABGs, EKGs, EEGs, CBCs, lytes, BUN, Cr, U/S, CXRs, AXRs, CTs, MRIs, U/A C+S, and various other investigations make sense to me
May my meager knowledge scrape me through
May the crap I studied 30 mins before the exam come out
May the questions be easy
May adrenaline prime my brain
May I WAKE UP in time for the exam!!!

and above and beyond all else,
May I look good enough so that if I fail, at least I fail in style

exam break 3
You Are Cookie Monster

Misunderstood as a primal monster, you're a true hedonist with a huge sweet tooth.

You are usually feeling: Hungry. Cookies are preferred, but you'll eat anything if cookies aren't around.

You are famous for: Your slightly crazy eyes and usual way of speaking

How you live your life: In the moment. "Me want COOKIE!"
