I think if I could earn 1 dollar for every minute I wasted doing unproductive things (facebook and youtube mostly), I would be a millionaire by now.
Aside from the time well and justly spent with friends and family, I’ve not been exceedingly productive studying for what would be THE most important exam of med school, which is just 1.5 months away. 6 specialties to cover. That leaves me with 1 week per specialty but some are just impossible to cover within 1 week (like surgery and medicine). >< oh well gg liao @@
Some photos on the stuffs I have been doing for the past week since returning home:
Met up with relatives and had a fun time with cousins. This is my 4th aunt’s dog Juno. She’s such a good sport but we were a bit harsh tbh. We played catch with her and intentionally threw the toys into the water to see if she would swim to get it! Look at those longing eyes haha
Went hiking at Cheras (Bukit Apek 阿白山) with relatives the next morning. This is Malaysia’s version of hiking: a rough sketch of the route and its approximate distance at each pitstop.
Us posing with Jalur Gemilang at the back! Great catch up with cousins esp Jian Lik (purple shirt far right), who’s from Canada whom I haven’t in 8 years. And despite us being at 15,18,20 and 23, it’s really fun to just crack lame jokes with them
and stop acting like an adult.
But actually the directions along the path was very vague and we would not have made it without a random but frequent hiker who guided us throughout the 5.4km hike! And also thank God for the good weather that day. it had been raining so heavily for the past few days (and currently too)
And of course, mahjong session with parents and grandpa! 🙂
Christmas eve party/primary and secondary school friends gathering @ Sue Ann’s place. Most of my friends are working now (I keep getting asked when will i finally graduate?) So nostalgic to talk with people who actually know my landline (house) phone number and remember all the silly things we used to do back in school.
Anyway need to hit the sack. Worship tomorrow. Been playing this song on loop for the whole day. Reminds me to seek strength from God and cast my burdens on Him!
In this you rejoice, though now for a little while, if necessary, you have been grieved by various trials, so that the tested genuineness of your faith—more precious than gold that perishes though it is tested by fire—may be found to result in praise and glory and honor at the revelation of Jesus Christ. ~ 1 Peter 1:6-7
