and when she speaks

Nowhere beats a place like home.
Time to be free, and around loved ones.
Also time to let your hair down, with no work to think of, and to be surrounded by joy, laughter and love.
To be pampered :) and taken care of.
To wake up in the morning, being greeted by mum and dad having breakfast, by the three girls' snoring or grooming, to Johnny coming up to you for a little tickle, to the beautiful garden waiting for you to step foot on, to the pool enthralling you to jump into for a wet, welcoming splash.
Ah. The sweet, simple pleasure of just being home.
I'm counting down.
I can't wait. I love you all very much :)

"I was put here for a reason, I was born into this world.
And I'm living and I'm believing that I was meant to be this girl."
My new boss is like a strict fatherly figure to me.
He is very well-known in the hospital. A fierce figure, but someone well respected for his brilliance and you must go by his rules when you are in the CCU- the cardiac unit.
He has become fond of me, my senior tells me. I am, the baby in the group- and thanks to my senior, who exposed this on the very first day this new boss stepped foot into our conference room. In the beginning, I thought he was picking on me. He was never mean, or disrespectful or condescending. He just expected more from me. I have to admit, he put me back on my feet. I bucked up, worked much harder, woke up that much earlier (5am to be exact!) and read up on all my patients over the weekend.
Just so he would be satisfied.
I guess, it paid off.
He loves calling my name 'Sueyi!' SUEYI!' he'll blast. In that very fatherly like stern tone.
But he's a barrel of laughs. Also it seems to my senior and a few colleagues, they seem to derive satisfaction from poking fun at me of the fact that he calls me from afar and goes 'SUEYI' and then proceeds to 'pimp' me or correct me at something so trivial. It is funny, come to think of it. Because I get his attention and he keeps on calling my name.
Today, post-call, he shouted from the end of the hallway to me whilst Gerome was standing beside him,' Good job you two. Good job Sueyi!'
Inside, I was brimming :)
He was impressed earlier today; 'Wow. You've improved so much-in just a week'.
T'was indeed a fun day.
Post-call; Gerome and I met up with Roselyn, Patrick and Fareed for lunch at Kuma's Corner- bring on the heart-attack inducing BURGERS! and criss-cross deep-fried fries :)
And then, onto DQ's for ice-cream.
And food coma. I need to sleep now
Im happy and I'm glad I have attendings like that who expect from me. Because they know Im capable of more. I guess he picked on me at the beginning because he knew I was better. and he saw that in me. And he pushed me to reached that potential, and to expect more from myself.
I did just that. And I should continue striving.
Lots of love

I was born to try.
by Delta Goodrem.
Sometimes you face pebbles on your road to your destination. I say destination because that's where I want to reach. And that's where I will be, no matter what it takes.
The pebbles- not rocks- pebbles; I need to find ways to go around.
I have someone here who has been an advisor and a supporter. A comforting arm and a strong-hearted person, who looks out for me.
And I am thankful for that.
Now onto that thing I need to do and the person I need to see to get that roadblock moving :) for me to continue moving ahead ;)
Lots of love
Home in a week's time for a week :) am getting more than excited!
