So far the previous few posts have all been scheduled posts - I'm still currently at rural placement with no Internet connection, so I won't be replying to comments for 2 weeks...yet, feel free to leave comments (you'll make me happy that way) and I'll reply them when I get back to Clayton =)
Anybody missing me already? =P

Got this from Chau Wang last semester when he went to rural placement....stackable mugs!
Received this postcard from Chien when she was in Canberra
It brightened up my day though it was 3 weeks late
The staff and residents at the aged care home at which I went for community placement gave me this as a token of appreciation...my other group members also got theirs too =)
Life is full of surprises, right?

Have a safe trip dearest, and take care of yourself always.
Friends are friends forever
If the Lord is Lord of them
And a friend will not say never
'cause the welcome will not end
Though it's hard to let you go
In the Father's hand we know
That a lifetime's not too long
To live as friends
- Michael W. Smith, 'Friends are Friends Forever'

We celebrated Dilys' birthday last Thursday at campus centre. Congratulations for turning 20 =)
Dilys and her cake =) We arranged the 20 candles into the letter 'D'
With her pressies from us - the flowers are so nice!
Us girls with the birthday girl
The cool guys with the birthday girl
One of the carpets....I love the design! But Yu Wan said this carpet is for the toilet floor..
Ravind, Grace and me...why that expression??
The champion of the day
Don't get frustrated if you don't get a strike =P
Due to my foot injury, I'm still walking with a bit of limp so we took the lift to get to the first floor for bowling. This is how the lift looked like...
It has a room-like kinda door
Inside the lift - it's so small! Just nice to fit 5 of us altogether...it's also quite dark inside actually
After bowling it was already about 1.15pm, and we went to have lunch at Lemon Leaf, a Thai restaurant. I had Masaman curry lamb with rice...yummy~ We also had dessert after that.
The dessert - egg custard with ice cream
We went to shop for a while at Knox City shopping complex after that. It's not my first time there but the shopping complex still reminded me of Malaysia's style of shopping mall =)
Planned to take the 737 bus back but it was about 5pm by then and the next bus would be at 5.47pm. We didn't want to wait so we took another bus that took us to the end of tram stops (somewhere near Burwood), took a tram then took the 703 bus to halls. Reached halls at about 7pm.
It's really a fun day....we should go bowling more often!! (not AMF again coz it's kinda expensive =P)
Going for rural placement starting tomorrow. I'm going to Kyneton with Grace and Adilah...it will be fun! =D There's no Internet access there, but that doesn't mean that my blog won't be updated....hehehe~

It was rural briefing after that, and when we had to walk to the other corner of the lecture theatre to sign some form. Grace and Adilah helped to bring the form to my seat for me to sign (suddenly I felt that I was like a VIP hehe). We then discussed about taking the V-Line train to go to our rural placement and how would I be able to move about with the condition of my leg. Luckily (and much to our relief) that a girl came up to us and offered to drive us there because she had enough seats in her car. I felt so thankful =)
I didn't feel like walking all the way to the Histology lab for practical/Histology lecture after that. I even asked Daniel to wait for me as he was driving back to halls - but after asking whether the Histology practical was worth my time to go (we had exam coming up and most people would rather spend the time studying previous weeks' stuff), I told him to go back first while I continued discussing/making decision whether to go or not with Sheryl, Lin, Karolina and Ryan. We spent like 10 minutes to make the decision of not going =.= Sheryl then drove us back to halls - she also lent me her analgesic cream for my foot =)
Li Ping called me to ask how did the doctor's appointment go. 'So you are, like, immobile now?' She asked. 'Yeah...immobile.' Hmmm. Ryan helped me to walk up the stairs to my room. I told my parents what happened to me in the morning and they replied with lots of advices on how to massage the foot with oil, asked me how's the injury like etc. I took off the bandage from my foot and only realised that there was swelling =( and the pain! After applying analgesic cream, I 'elevated' my foot on my bed (the nurse advised me to keep my foot elevated) and continued studying for the exam.
By evening I realised that I could no longer walk properly and I could only hop around to get to places I wanted to. I had trouble going to the toilet and the kitchen which were only a few steps away from my room! =( I never knew that the situation could get that serious! I then realised I needed a crutch - but where to get one at that hour?? I was feeling terrible but there was nothing I could do. I asked around and got to know from Hashrul that I could borrow a crutch from the Monash Pharmacy. Hmmm...nobody's going to uni on Tuesday, so I could only get a crutch on Wednesday, after the exam, I thought. Ryan and Yun Ying had to bring dinner to my room (we usually have dinner upstairs). '你很大牌,' Yun Ying said jokingly. Yeah, I said, it's like hotel service =P I called my dad at night to talk about my injury. I was so very surprised when Siew Ting called me at around 12am!!! All the way from Malaysia! '哇，我脚受伤你就会打电话来哦……' Felt so touched =) [You rarely get international calls when you are overseas....]
The next day (yesterday) I didn't go for my community placement. Didn't sleep well the previous night. I woke up and spent 45 minutes just going to toilet then to the kitchen to prepare and have breakfast. I hopped along the corridors with my left leg. Yun Ying came to help me prepare lunch. Spent the whole day studying. Called Kaiwen to help me to walk to the exam venue the next day, and Daniel to give me a lift to uni. When it was dinner time I had dinner delivered to my room again =) Was really hoping to get a crutch after the exam next day.
Today when I woke up, I realised that I could walk better....and with less pain!! Felt very happy. Daniel and Yeu Sheng walked me to the Histology lab for the exam (theirs was at Engineering Halls). Apparently Kaiwen didn't see us walk past her room in the morning so she didn't join us in the car ride =.= But I could walk without much help anyway =) After the exam Ivie walked me to campus centre, and just then I decided that I wouldn't need a crutch anymore! So I ended up not using a crutch after suffering from pain for 2 days. I still walk slowly and with slight limp now, but there is not much pain anymore. Thank God =)
Went to Pinewood with Yu Wan, Ivie, Li Ping, Adilah, Grace and Ravind to have ice cream. Planned to watch a movie but the next screening was around 6pm (about 1.5 hours away) so we left. Yu Wan came to my room and we chat till dinner time. I could walk upstairs and have dinner now! =D
Thank you everyone who have offered a helping hand (cooking and bringing me dinners, helping me carry stuff etc etc), thank you for those who have showed concern and care, and thank you for the prayers... Really appreciate everything ^_^

Not that kind of day-dream if that's what you are thinking...the dreams that I meant are dreams that you make when you are sleeping.
It's funny how you would dream of people whom you see everyday or very often. I dream of my friends around me. Sometimes I dream of people who I have thought of earlier in the day. Not that I can control who will appear in my dreams, right?
Almost every one of them gave me the same response when I told my friends that I dreamt of them.
End of last year when I was back in Malaysia I dreamt of Angelene a few times. I sent her text messages to 'inform' her. Her replies were like, "You miss me too much I think", "You must be missing me badly"...
Last week I told Li Ping that I dreamt of her. Her response was, "Oh, you miss me ar?"
Few days ago I wrote on Cheah Yen's Facebook wall that I dreamt of her calling me. Her reply was, "I am so glad you miss me so much!!"
See what the responses have in common? =P
And last night I dreamt of Kaiwen!
