Vanessa dropped by with Auntie Linda last night and we both shared a heartfelt conversation - what else on? b.o.y.s. *laughs* Never laugh at someone else's boy or your future one might end up being exactly like the one you laughed at ;)
A junior in IMU came up to me and said "I'm so impressed by you."
I laughed and brushed it aside thinking Sze-Sze must have put in a good word about me, "OH dont listen to her to whatever she says"
She wouldn't stop smiling at me, so earnestly.
My sister didnt say anything. And I smiled at her, hoping this would go somewhere else.
Then, she continued looking at me and smiling. I felt so weird- she was smiling in adoration towards me.
Then, I laughed aloud and repeated what I said 'Really, dont listen to her!'
She exclaimed 'A doctor at 21... how did you do it?'
I pooh-poohed it and flashed her a bigger smile, hoping this might change where the conversation was going. I thanked her and then, Sze-Sze and I both had to leave urgently cos' mum was busy buzzing us on my handphone. I questioned Sze-Sze later on what she said- she told me she didnt say anything to her, solemnly.
And I found out her friend did the telling -.-'
Good news is- a few people whom I've bumped into exclaim I look younger than my 21 years ;)
You don't know how silly and happy this makes me- I have never felt so old being at home, constantly reminded about my old age by my three younger monkey sisters:
"JIE. I CANT BELIEVE you're 22! Man, THATS SO OLD"
I correct them "21! I AM 21!"
Then, the youngest jumps in the other sister's defense; adding salt to the wound; 'Jie when I finish med school, you're ALMOST THIRTY"
I fight back (yes, childishly) 'They say life begins at thirty, darling' -.-'
Met dear Sabrina today and we shared thick peanut butter & strawberry thick toast and French toast at The Gardens. Lots of laughter, cheeky teases, catching up & sharing of latest news and happenings in each others' lives =) I'll see you next CNY xoxo
I wanted to join the young ones in the TV room last night; the 17 year olds - boys and girls. It was so fun; but Sze-sZE said no, it'll only make it awkward for them. And I frowned and gave my sad puppy face, to no avail obviously. They were having so much fun and I wanted to join in. Mum laughed and said I'm much "older" la... *sigh* this age thing is really getting into me.
- Or is it me going to leave home soon that's making me like this?
