Seems like I tend to update my blog once a year. LOL.
I passed my 3rd year MBBS exams and phew, what a relieve. I'm back at home now for 2 weeks. Today is day two in my lovely island and I am already bored. No friends to go out with. (why do I sound so lonely?) HAHA. So here I am, writing shit in this blog of mine which no one ever reads.
I woke up early again today which is uber rare. Everyone knows that Julia never wakes up early on a holiday/weekends.
does not come easily,
for those who weep,
what she sows,
When will she find peace?
Lets ignore that for now, :)
So I woke up today and rubbed my small tiny Cina eyes. Everything was a blur because I was still sleepy and I haven't put on my spectacles. I reached for my specs beside my pillow, they weren't there. Okay, maybe they were on the floor then. I bent over, almost falling off my bed, because I am super not flexible, and frantically waved my hands trying to touch random spots on the floor hoping that I would touch my spectacles. And nope, not there either.
So I got out of bed and searched for my specs. Nope, not on my dressing table. Not on top of the cupboard either. Turned my bed upside down and they just weren't freaking there. How can my spectacles just disappear out of thin air?
I searched high and low for my specs but they couldn't be found in my room. I concluded that they must be elsewhere. So, I ran around the house looking for them like some crazy sohai. I had to squint my eyes just to see so my already small eyes turned even smaller.
Do you have any idea how difficult and tormented I felt? I'm already blind without my specs, and I have no memory or whatsoever of where I left them the night before. It was so difficult to see, I kept stubbing my toe on the freaking sofa. Gah pain like fuck.
It was like looking for a needle in a haystack except that the person looking for the goddamn needle is freaking blind.
I have no idea since when I became so patient. Yes, I searched the whole house for two hours and I still couldn't find my specs. And yet I haven't given up. Searched everywhere including the fridge (yes once I left my specs in the fridge) and still nothing. NOOOOO.
No choice. Had to get help. My eyes are useless. So I yelled for my mom.
Julia : MUMMYYY AHHH, LU KUA TIOK WA EH BAK KIA BOH? (Did you see my specs?)
Mom : BOH LA. LU KUA LA, TA TA TAO LUAN LUAN TIM. ANCHUA CHO LOH KUN, TAN CHEH OPERATION LU TIM KAH TOH TUA PATIENT EH POH TOH ANCHUA?
(Nola, You see la, always simply throw your specs. How to be a doctor like that? Later during operation you leave scissors in your patient's stomach how?)
Wa eh kah tia liao, Lu kah ki chui.
(My leg pain, you find yourself)
Thanks ah mummy.
So without any help or reinforcement, it was time to give up. Decided to put on contacts instead.
Yea, please excuse my ugly drawings. Not easy to draw on an iPad okay especially when you have short, stubby fingers. (I just suck)
I really hope my specs turn up later. I hate wearing contacts. They wear out my eyes and I feel tired. Plus I really like my specs. Ray-ban okay. Not cheap.
Oh my spectacles, please appear soon.
