Retrospective Entry

Posted in Random, Thoughts, Travel by Alvin on May 12, 2011

I loathed March, April was ironic, May was/is mundane.

and I say, I need doses of enthusiasm and insanity.

I had a good ole’ treat last month. Packed a sack of book, sleeping bag, camera, a few T’s and shorts an hour before departure, I hopped on a night bus, up North and heck, best weekend spent! Logged 5 awesome dives, ample of sleep, ate a lot and chilled to the max.


Nothing beats the tranquility, 18 meters under the South China Sea.

I can’t wait for more, no plans because spontaneity rules.

Almost a year ago since I last backpacked and am still amazed by the experience, perspective and fun I’ve had. Time and opportunity are luxuries I cannot afford. Hence, making these acquaintances illustrious and memorable.

Time marches like a laser beam trajectory and all I could do is a retrospective entry.

2 papers down, 4 more to go

and song of the day, literally.

It has been a long, tough week.

2 weeks away from completion of undergraduate studies and we are half way through 2010.

Time flies eh?

I am almost an Asian palm civet except that they shit kopi luwak whilst I pee Nescafe.


Premium roast!

Writer’s block. I am not even a writer to begin with but that equates the hiatus, alongside with the hectic schedule.

Viva ended today, which marks the end of clinical clerkship. The gist, I enjoyed internal medicine the most, mostly because of the mind boggling yet intriguing cases, and interesting rounds with the consultants. A few more tutorials and classes to go before the final wrap.

Apart from the norms, we’ve extracted some time off  for food, coffee and booze.

and thus its time to buck up for finals, the final finals.

I am still kicking alive in the Land of Smiles. 20 days and still counting.

Charcoal tabs are still in the blister pack, unutilized, despite the crazy gourmet over the past 3 weeks!

Till then.

It’s A Wrap
