and when she speaks

Saturday, October 25, 2008

Had some problems with health insurance back in Canada.
Dealt with it last night and this morning.

*Sigh* I stress myself out so easily. I should learn to take things easily!

My housemate said to me today 'SUUUUEEE-YIII, I miss you!'
and then plonked onto his bed...
We had some discussion and at some point  laughed at his admittance at 'I'm full of shit'
I cheekily replied 'I knew that the first day I met you =P'

ANyway, then we were talking about our life plans and residency and our future career pathways in medicine... and he mentioned ' I know you're ambitious. I can tell.'
This coming from a guy who barely knows me and has only seen me a couple of hours in the whole of 2 weeks! 
I do sometimes wonder if it's a compliment or not.
Anyhow, it must be pretty evident. It's like there's a sign on my forehead blatantly revealing 'I'm AMBITIOUS'.
Heck, I know I am. But I know I've cut down a lot too. I now know what exactly in life I want and at this point, I don't have to work too hard. I know what I must do and what I want to achieve- that's the most important thing. I want a balanced life with a great career and time for myself, family and friends. I don't want to work so hard chasing dreams simply because I want to be at the top. What's the point in working so hard and not stepping back and enjoying all your labor and all of life? 
There was a guy who was after me at one point who said this to me :
'Sueyi, I'll take care of you. You can do whatever you want. You can go and chase your every dream and I'm OK with that.'

And I was like 'What?'
That sounds nice of the guy, I guess- but that personally felt --- it definitely speaks volumes of my character.  Being 'Ambitious' has a good and bad light to it.
It's great that I have dreams but yet, that term just sounds very one-minded, cold. It just makes it seem like everything I do is geared towards that, as if I don't have a fun, chilled life aside from work-which I obviously do- because I think I'm playing too much now...
Yea. I find maybe dream-driven is a better description.
Dreams. I love that word.

Anyway-back to my housemate; he said 'I'm like that too. Only I hide it very well. I have this outer shell.........'
And to that, I couldn't help but laugh and said 'You're so full of shit!'

I know he is too, but he definitely seems the kind of guy who has goals and yet, takes things as they come.
Which I really like.

Anyway, we went for Japanese dinner today and had dessert in a Japanese tea-house which is freaking expensive. And we talked about sex, boys, erections, gays, Malaysian scholarships, serving the Malaysian government, bringing bak gua back to the US, pasar malam food... LOL. 
The whole JPA gang.

I'm heading to Chinatown tomorrow with Wy Men, I need to get those hot-dogs for my USMLE Step 2 CK which is this Thursday!
I had buns the last time I sat for Step 1 and did extremely well on that exam. I shall do that this time too =p hehehe yea la, I'm quite superstitious la!

The skin on the back of my hands are peeling, dry and flaking off.
That's the effect of the dreary cold season on my delicate skin.

And it hurts.
It stings each time I wash my hands.
And you know me, the habit of washing my hands after touching every single thing which has been instilled since med school doesn't help me one bit...

So, after a whole day of studying and flattening my bum [ :(' ] Ai Ping and I went to Bath and Body Works because she had coupons =)
And so, we splurged a bit. I bought the Japanese Cherry Blossom Body Butter and got the Black Amethyst hand cream for free =)
And then, next door was Victoria's Secret. You don't just pass VS without entering.
And then, I ended up with a few pieces (ONLY a few!) of lingerie which were on sale!! =)

Those items are necessities. Crucial for the wardrobe.
Applicable for everyday use.
So, no guilty feelings la........ =p

8:54 AM;;

Text ColorWhy on earth do I look so round in public pictures??? -.-
Yes, at least I know from doing dermatology that in 40 years down the road, I will age extremely well because of the extra fat in my cheeks =)

At least I don't have to fork out a bomb in injecting fat taken from elsewhere or silicone injections into my cheeks just to make me look years younger ;)

Yeah la... more narcissistic cam whore shots. It's my allowed entertainment during my study breaks ok?

Studying is not too bad. Though I think there's a apart of me that's in denial of how much more I have to read before I can feel satisfied with myself.
The exam is a day before Halloween, on the 30th of Oct. An 8 hour exam sitting in front of the computer answering Multiple choice questions.

I made red bean dessert soup for my housemates and they loved it.
Tonight, David (my German blond hair-blue eyed) housemate is making German pancakes for us =)

My other mixed Eurasian Greek god housemate; I barely saw the past 1.5 days because he leaves at 4 am in the morning and comes back like 8-9 pm ish and goes straight to bed.

It boggles my mind as to why they still choose to go with something that requires them to make do with the least amount of sleep they can get for the next couple of decades. David replied 'It's not at all like derm huh?' =P ;) he actually thought I was on VACATIOn last week! That's crazy, I worked pretty darn hard last week - only they left the house before I did every morning and came back later than me =)

I went out with a dear friend who has just left for Tokyo today. He treated me to Pio-Pio and made sure I had more than enough to eat! *hehe* this was after hearing the story of my very STINGY date. Plus this friend is more than aware of my love for food and the atrocious amount of food I can eat =)
So we had Chicken Pio, with saffron rice and fried banana and fried calamari. I was so stuffed. But he really wanted to make sure I wasn't going to complain of any residual hunger pangs, so he suggested dessert at Red Mango =) hahahaha *super darn full la!* Came home and fell asleep straight away yesterday evening!

Anyway, I had Magnolia cupcake this morning (the cupcake made famous by Sex and the City) and got to see his super wonderful apartment. Ok-la, sort of sent him off whilst I went to collect his sim card =)* so so nice of him!* - *hehe*

Saw Jack this morning, my Vietnamese dermatology resident =)
Sze-Sze went for her IMU interview yesterday, and I have to say this- when I forced her to review her preparation with me, she blew me off. She will ace the interview, no doubt about it. She's got an amazing talent for public speaking and for shooting off witty remarks. HER Only downfall is she absolutely *lurves* it when I compliment her and repeats 'JIE, tell mummy what you said about me.' and then goes on and exclaims to me once more 'JIE, tell DADDY what you just said!' 

*shakes head incomprehensibly* - *laughs*

I love everything right now.
Love my family who skypes with me every night without fail (actually my parents are more than happy if I dont skype with them because they say I TALK way too much - they say I'm a BIG BIG *chatterbox* who won't stop talking) ;) but I like to let them know all that's happening =)

And love my friends.
And the company here in NYC.

It's only Tuesday and I've finished all the pork buns, hot dog buns, and egg tarts already :('

My loud new housemate came back yesterday eating ferociously, chomping down voraciously whilst saying 'I'm so hungry, I could eat a horse' and then, noisily asks (whilst I was happily sleeping in my room after all that studying) 'HEYYY David, where can I get CHEAP FOOD that can feed a horse? I mean I want a LOT of food.'

'SUUU-EEE, go cook a Malaysian meal for me'
 then proceeds to tell David 'She can't cook. I can't date you then!'

Then he says 'Tell you what. I'll go get the recipe for chicken curry and we'll cook together.'

Aiseh... if he says that, that means there's no escaping!

Poor guy. Orthopedic Surgery's hours kill. And it means no time to eat at all whilst at work.
Back to Psychiatry studying.
I finished Surgery yesterday =)

He's so adorable la... Plus he's got a fabulous body too. All 6 foot of him, with rippling toned muscles and a handsome face to boot. I especially love the eyes. And the skin. Aiyar, the whole package la.

Sueyi, focus on studying. Not on KAP-chai-ing your housemate ;p

Chia Ling, thank you for your wonderful message on FB =)
Believe me, you don't need my brains. Yours is as good as mine. PLus, I LUV all your fantastic tops; they're so fitting and accentuate the right curves ;) *pheeew-wuitt* ;) very hot.

12:52 AM;;

I love this girl's MAC book =)
Esp the Phone booth application ;)

I'm having fun with the self-shot photos as you can see =)

My two guy housemates and I bonded two nights ago over a toilet overflow incident.

I didn't realise there was a technique in using the plunger ;)
It overflowed the third friggin' time. And I quote my housemate; Nick 
'I heard 'OH SHIT!' and then I looked at her, and she shut the toilet door as if the whole room was going to be flooded' ;P and then, he came to the rescue la...

Nick and David were so sweet. They did all the cleaning, squatting on the floor wiping, soaking the wet brown mucky floor with towels... all whilst I stood by.

I asked 'Do you guys need me to do anything?' - because obviously they were both working hard whilst I had nothing to do; and was feeling guilty ;)

Then Nick gave me a cheeky stare 'You've done enough damage already!'
I said 'Hey!'
'Don't make me feel guilty!'

They replied 'Well, somebody's got to feel guilty!' =)

So nice =)

Last night, a new housemate came. He's a med student from Washington here to do Orthopedic Sugery. Quite a hottie this one ;)
Already was abusing my name last night. Calling me from the TV room. 'Just to make sure you're still here' *oh brother!* then he wanted to bond with us for dinner wor. But I had other plans already....
He calls me 'SUUUUUUU-----*pause* EEEEEEEE'
it's so wrong the way he says my name. 
I need to teach him the correct pronunciation.

I can tell we're going to bond really well. He's the super chilled type and seems like a super fun guy to hang out with =)

Last day of my first elective rotation was over yesterday.

I celebrated by painting my fingernails red.
Today was an absolute blast.
Met up with AiPing, Ronny, Carol, Grace and made new friends: Ian, Amanda, Pei Yi, Huey Shan.
We went for dim-sum and had a blast laughing and making so much noise in the restaurant.
Then we conquered Soho and went crazy shopping.
I bought a trench coat! and another top.

Then, Ai Ping and I were deserted by the rest who had to go home, so we went grocery shopping in Chinatown which is SO CHEAP when compared to Manhattan!
I bought so much goodies to keep me full during this coming week-hehehe...
Ive got my supply of pork buns, egg tarts, hot dog buns, TAU SEARH peng, curry chicken puff and chicken pie =)

ANd of course, my frozen dumplings =) so I don't have to worry about cooking...
*so lazy hor?* ;)

Then we met up with the JPA gang- Tania, Max, Lip Yoong, Hau Jia, Crispin and Wymen in a fancy upscale Italian restaurant for dinner- I had Halibut with caramelized onion and it was so filling. Then we headed to Union Square for yummylicious DESSERT @ Max Brenner's =)

We each ordered a dessert dish and I tried everyone's and it was so so good ;)
Now I'm very very stuffed...but satisfied.

LipYoong is leaving to Tokyo for 3 months, I don't know if I will get to see him - that depends on whether or not I work in NYC ;)
And Tania is leaving to M'sia for 3 weeks- so I'll definitely see her.

Thank goodness Lip Yoong lives near me--- well, he takes the cab and my place is on his way so I always hitch a ride with him =) hehehe - so nice la!

Max treated me for dessert =) *thank you yea*
And Hau Jia helped me carry my 'eggs' la.. ahahaha

Definitely a fun day. I seriously need to get down to doing some constructive real studying...
