new year : new mood : new spirit

How time flies! It's been 1 year since I returned from the USA. Lots of things had happened, lots of adjustment I had to do, lots of tears and headaches but lots of revelations too. The 6 degrees of separation is apparently reduced to 2 in Singapore, especially among the Malays. I recently found out that Alwi Hafiz and me are related through our fathers and that Hamid, one of AMP's Directors is Mama's nephew!

My new year's resolutions? Embark on new adventures comme toujours, continue my exercise regime, get that book published, go back to school, make that book:cafe idea materialise, etc. Yes, the list is endless. And Emak is still on my mind and heart; going through tedious medical school applications is but a therapy for my grief (knowing that it is one of Emak's last wishes for me). 

I recently watched a Malaysian 3D animation - Upin & Ipin. Like those adorable twins, I'm too without a mother. But life goes on, n'est pas? "Betul betul betul" Ipin nodded.


Ah yes, some have asked if the eagle and wolf story is a reflection of my own. I'm sure Emak would have asked too... Oh Emak!
