"Remember to Remember"

LOVE is priceless

this is a non-food post

It seems like yesterday, when i first set my foot in a foreign place so far from home.
Adapting to a totally new environment is kinda tough for me. What's more when I received a shocking news from mom 2 weeks later.
A news of misery. As my dad's liver's cancer marker is not resolved even after several times of treatment and a transplant is what best for him.
Liver transplant!

Mental breakdown and have emo-ing for a few weeks. Finding the right donor is difficult enough but luckily, my eldest cousin is willing to offer help. Tests were done for matches and he passed. However, disappointment once again happened when the Singapore Ethics Committee rejected him after an interview. We were all pissed and sad at the same time, especially my mom. What's wrong with them anyway!! Acting in the best interest of patient? Yeah rite!! ;(

I looked upon my mom. She have been so strong all the way. Taking care of my dad and family. And the worst part is: I'm not around to share their pressure.
In the end, my mom offered to go for the test. And she is fit to donate. Good news and bad news at one go. My dad found the suitable liver, but mom is the one who is donating. Worried sick!

The operation took place on the first day I was having my exam. Fixing my mind on the paper is really challenging. Anxious and worried. After about 10 hours of the operation, my bro, aunt and uncle broke the good news of 2 successful operation! Dad's body accepted half of my mom's liver and is still happily staying there now :)

Overwhelming definitely!
I can't wait to be back by their side to help boost their mood!




Mom and dad, Get well soon! I love U dearly :)


and not to forget to thank my friends and Chris who encouraged and motivated me to stay strong and consoling me when tears of mine roll down helplessly.


I am greedy. I wish for more good news.
I want to pass my PP3 final exam next week!
the scariest paper that gave me ups and downs... I shall not fear you!

LOVE is really priceless,
As no one could evaluate it.
Motivation is what one need to move on,
There's nothing in the world that could not be done,
I trust that I could get over the troubles,
and I will...
as LOVE supports me to.


p/s: will be away for 2 weeks as holidays will officially start :)
