Last Lap

Published on September 26, 2012

It’s end Sep; our wedding is in 3 mths, Ty is in the midst of his final exams and I’m mentally ticking off all the things to be done / prepared for the wedding. We are at the last lap of our 6-yr long -distance relationship and like in a marathon, the last lap is [...]

I think all in all lizzie and I have been quite lucky.  I’m just about to finish med school and we’ll finally be married.  Not too many long distance relationships have survived for 6 years and I think we’ve been really fortunate – to have found each other, to have had the means fly across [...]

So it’s been more than 2 years since anyone’s last posted anything on this blog.  Liz and I haven’t died but life has just robbed us of time to write.  We’re still very much together and we’ve been through so many things these years that we could never have imagined when we decided that we [...]

I’m usually nodding off during my bus journey to work but this morning, I was unable to sleep…lost in a sea of melancholic thoughts. As I passed by the Esplanade and saw the white ‘wish balls’ floating on the surface of the water, I kinda realized that a year had passed since Ty and I stood under the [...]

I’ve been trying to write for some time but I haven’t had much of an opportunity.  I’ve never written much but it’s always been a pleasure to pen things down however inane.  Phase 2 of medicine is more intense than I expected but manageable nevertheless.  SH has just begun, but looking at the things we will [...]

Obama Amābō!

Published on November 5, 2008

Obama, scīlicet, herī regnum Americae Foederatae accēpit et mox prīmus honor illīus terrae, immō totī orbis, eī, Āfricānō Americānō, erit.  Sed omnēs dē hāc rē scrībēbant et ego nōlō plūs inquināre.  Scītisne, autem, dē palindrome ‘obama’?  Id vocābulum in ‘amabo’ mūtārī potest!  Fingere, igitur, possumus, tempore antīquō Obama praeter sententiā ‘verō, possumus’, etiam ‘Obama amābō’ ūsus sit!  Cognōvistisne etiam [...]

In Principio erat Verbum

Published on August 31, 2008

I’m so vexed. My internet’s capped so even if I wanted to do work, I can’t… I am speaking of my gen ed course, which I have totally lost interest in, by the way, even though I’m anxious to get my weekly contribution done – mostly because if not, I’d fail or something bad. Note [...]

Dēsīderō you

Published on August 12, 2008

Prope duōbus annīs post, it still isn’t easy to live sine eā. Dolōre, I write this nunc nam amōrem tam procul abesse dēsīderō. Especially adhūc with 6 weeks more to go dum intueor faciem. Putāvī numquam I would ever get used to it but it still surprises me id mihi dolēre. Et omnia quae facere [...]
