The Recess That Was

Posted in Diary by Alvin on February 24, 2010


The best thing about the Lunar New Year; abundant food, meet-ups, gatherings and almost a week of indulgence in the festive mood, not doing anything productive except getting ample rest. The anticipation and excitement of this annual event has toned down a lot, but I really do enjoy the catch-ups and company of cliques.

Back to the usual pace, and perhaps getting rapid as clerkships and quizzes lining up the upcoming weeks. The final hurdles which we shall leap and cross before putting an end to 4 great undergrad years.

On another note, I’ve decided to drop the Vietnam-China-Taiwan backpack plan and shall just stick with the Taiwan grad trip. Pinning my hopes that I can still make it to Bali this mid-Aug. =)

Chinese New Year Greetings
