I almost forgot about this
I have really been busy that I'm adopting to my new daily routine
Wake up -> school -> home -> dinner -> sleep -> repeats

Can you see there's no time for something fun?
There goes my loklok supper

But I am glad too that I'd achieved my goals
Completed lotsa things
& making tasks done before deadlines
Now that Chinese New Year is approaching
I may finally have some rest with peace in mind
Before my rush to do up the annual report

I went for a short break over the last weekend
It was not that fantastic nor that bad
At least I was able to get out
& really snooze my own time

Time passed incredibly slow somewhere down the Southern Hemisphere
We returned to hotel at 8pm
Watched an hour of documentary on Discovery Channel
But that hour felt like it was 3 hours

We also managed to visit my desired tourist spot

& it was happening because DarDar had a terriorist (monkey) attack
His RayBan specs was snatched & the locals had to lure him to return using sweets
The monkey knew its stuff! RayBan, comon!

We also had seafood dinner at the same place we went previously
But at a different restuarant
The food was fabulously delicious

Good thing I didnt grow fat after that meal

Beach activity on the last day

Relaxing & thrilling
Coz we went jet-skiing!

Oh anyway
I'm in lab working on my experiment
So quiet coz there's no one in the lab except me
& yesterday
Everyone was in lab -_-

I thought it would be just great to take a short break from my 3-months overseas proteomics work
little did I know that 2011 is so filled with more work!

I am going to 2 major conferences this year
& their deadlines were pushy
One of them has a deadline for registration on 31 Jan 2011

That I'd done & sent to Prof for inspection
Who knows
In return
I was given another big problem to solve because my manuscript was rejected without giving us any chance to rebute!
Prof was damn pissed about it
I was not happy about it
I followed the same methods that other researchers did
If he meant that my methods were inappropriate
Then I think the whole history of this particular methodology is gonna be revised

So anyway
Prof was eager to help to fight back
Asking me to give her a list of papers which mentioned that particular methods
& I rushed within an hour to give her that, before I left for dinner last night

& just now
I opened an email from from ISOLBE
One of the meetings which I'd attended 3 years ago & am going this year
& was told that the deadline for the application of travel grant ends on 31 Jan 2011


Why such short notice?
I'm so tensed up
Because I'm going to enjoy with my DarDar

I am those weirdos who would prefer to work hard before relax
So all these issues had gotten me worried! panicking! vexed!
Fearing that I cant do a good job when I'm back on Sunday

& next week
It is Chinese New Year
Another holiday to waste time on
& I really wish I can settle down
& do my work wholeheartedly

I realised I just cant sit down properly & do my work!
I'm still settling my backlogs
Having gatherings with friends
Settle this settle that
Going away over weekends
& that was my 2 weeks gone

Sounds ok for slacking 2 weeks
but NOT when you have millions of deadlines by 31 Jan!!!
I have to vomit out a manuscript, 2 abstracts, data analysis, 1 report asap
Furthermore i still needa work on my experiments

I hope i can finally get to do it next week when i'm back from __________

I really need a break!

i realised i haven been updating
because i sorta realised i had been really busy
& i really meant i was busy as in busy

it's hard to describe what i'm trying to mean about being busy
you know
some people would just love to give excuses by saying they are busy when they are in fact, not?

but me
i really was

it'd been 2 weeks since i'm back
yet started anything about what i'm to do next
that's coz i've been clearing backlogs!

Back in Singapore
So hot
Almost died of heat stress

I was serious!

Had my sharing session today again
& celebrated Prof's birthday
Had pizzas again

& it's time for more work soon

After two days of liquid diet
Slept through 31 Dec 2010
I'm all better for the new year!


I got to eat my favourite stir-fried beef noodles
& my stomach didnt churn! woooooooooo~

I am coming home tomorrow
Resting my Sunday watching TV
Enjoying the last moment of super cold weather

That's HK life for me again
But this time round
I pretty much enjoy it
