2nd last day of 2008

Now the clock shows 1:34pm and this meant that we have another 34.5 hours more to go before we march into 2009! My mind tells me that I ought to take time, sit down and reflect, evaluate and plan some goals ahead of 2009. Besides, I ought to share that setting of resolutions can become a yearly affair instead of really desiring to achieve something for yourself for the coming year. Somehow, this has really become a yearly affair for me. But this coming year, it shall no longer be a yearly affair. It ought to be something that I do enjoy doing and work towards for the best of my personal well-being.

So what shall be the things that I ought to plan about?

I want to plan about my emotional, mental and spiritual well-being.

I realised that very often, I have met others' needs more than I have took care of my own. I give and give and give but yet, at times, I really have not taken good care of myself. It is just very me to be involved in others, but well, perhaps, I just need to learn to take a step back and not neglect all these areas in my life.

Definitely, it won't be so much of missing out on people. Just that I need to take note of myself more. Time to recharge myself fully in 2009 so that I can better run the race ahead. There will be some major changes for myself in 2009 and I am really looking forward to it. Of course, no changes can take place without giving up some rights and offering some sacrifices. Yes, I ought to do that in 2009. Offerings and sacrifices. Ok, all these are in brief. I will need to put in time to plan about all these.

And the time will come only when I take a half-day off... so tomorrow shall be the day that I take my off!! yeah!!!

2009 here i come!!

My Cubicle

My cubicle looks like this now... haha... and with the cute flower... nice isn't it??

I missed my stop!

I woke up this morning unwillingly and headed towards office. it was pouring, raining, pouring, raining... super don't feel like going to work. But well, one thing motivated me... that is to receive pressies... hahaha...

So my bro dropped me at Yio Chu Kang MRT station and I took a bus from there... When I was on the bus, I was thinking that the bus journey is really long... but amazingly, when I turned around to look at the bus-stop, I realised that I missed my stop!

So panicking, I alighted at the stop after my usual stop... and I have to walk all the way back to the stop that I usually alighted and then to my office. Faintz... I smsed my boss about this and she kept laughing... she said that she'll announce to all this joke of the day. hahaha... silly me...

Anyway, Merry Christmas to all and see u guys at The Rock. :p

Take 5

Yes... I'm taking 5 from my work now... considerably the amount of information that I have to search high and low for the event next year.. and finally, I have finished compiling the costings for next year's event. We are contemplating to choose either Hainan, Cebu or Ho Chi Minh. I quite like Hainan and Cebu personally. But it seems that flights to Hainan is really expensive... faint.. it can cost up to SGD1,600-1,800 each person.. and the hotel ain't cheap either... haha... but i am looking forward to the trips next year. Hopefully can get to do a recce as well.

Anyway, Christmas is just next week! How fast can this be?!? A year has gone. 14 more days to a new year ahead. Many mixed feelings from within. 2008 has been a rather interesting year. I've been in 3 jobs, which meant 2 transitions in my work, and a shifting in and out of house, another transition. I don't remember writing down my resolutions in my blog but I do remember what my resolutions are about. Haha.. I managed to achieve some and some, I only managed achieve partial only. And of course, there were some that I didn't achieve at all. :(

But seriously speaking, it is ok. I am learning to take things in good stride and just simply move on.

I think I need to take a day off to rethink on the directions that I would like to take in 2009. :) It is simply good to just take 5 now...

The Impossible Dream

I was very touched by the lyrics of this song yesterday. It was talking about a man who dares to dream the impossible simply because of one thing in his heart - Passion & Courage.

There are many things in this world that we can dream and be passionate about. However, passion will only be visible when there are actions.

so, enjoy the song!

"The Impossible Dream"
from MAN OF LA MANCHA (1972)
music by Mitch Leigh and lyrics by Joe Darion

To dream the impossible dream
To fight the unbeatable foe
To bear with unbearable sorrow
To run where the brave dare not go

To right the unrightable wrong
To love pure and chaste from afar
To try when your arms are too weary
To reach the unreachable star

This is my quest
To follow that star
No matter how hopeless
No matter how far

To fight for the right
Without question or pause
To be willing to march into Hell
For a heavenly cause

And I know if I'll only be true
To this glorious quest
That my heart will lie peaceful and calm
When I'm laid to my rest

And the world will be better for this
That one man, scorned and covered with scars
Still strove with his last ounce of courage
To reach the unreachable star

Laminin is a protein found in the extracellular matrix, the sheets of protein that form the substrate of all internal organs also called the basement membrane. It is the major non-collagenous component of the basal lamina, such as those on which cells of an epithelium sit.[1] It has four arms that can bind to four other molecules. The three shorter arms are particularly good at binding to other laminin molecules, which is what makes it so great at forming sheets. The long arm is capable of binding to cells, which helps anchor the actual organs to the membrane.

The laminin protein is made up of three separate parts, called the A, B1, and B2 chains. That gives it a total of six "ends", which accounts for a lot of its flexibility in connecting up various kinds of molecules. Because of this, scientists who create biomaterials are extremely interested in the whole family of laminins[citation needed]. They are a family of glycoproteins that are an integral part of the structural scaffolding in almost every animal tissue. Laminins are secreted and incorporated into cell-associated extracellular matrices.

Laminin is vital to making sure overall body structures hold together. Improper production of laminin can cause muscles to form improperly, leading to a form of muscular dystrophy. It can also cause progeria.

Simply me

It is simply me to remain simple.

Life gets complicated somehow, unknowingly.

But I choose to remain simple.

Simplicity does not mean to live without dreams.

Simple me just want to have simple dreams.

But simple dreams can get complicated too.

Simply because it is too simple.

I still choose to go for simplicity.

Remain simple. Remain me.
