its been a long long time since i blogged! this might take quite a while!
yep im back from vietnam on the 26th. todays the 5th (past 12am) so tt makes it arnd 9 or 10days late! pardon me!
the overseas cip trip to vietnam was really a learning journey for me. learnt about myself, my friends, and the pple in duy thanh village. well, partly i take a sneak peak into the life of a farmer, or a village dweller. farmer is what i actually thought of doing! (maybe retired)
Life in the village
relaxing, quiet, cold at night. cheap french bread(30cents) and drip cafe(40cents). i slept on my newly bought air pump bed once in a while, letting my friends use when they are not feeling well. i would very much like to join my housemates sleeping on the floor too. feels extra when im sleeping on the comfy air bed! the floor is okay too la!
the chance to live with live stocks is incredible! feeding leftovers to pigs, ducks.
gets dark at arnd 5+pm and brightens before 7am.
would seat outside the house calling Dawn or just absorb in the quietness and the occasional few motorbikes tt passes by.
bathing is always a challenge. too cold for me to handle. would pop in and shiver alil.
feels great when walking down the village with kids or a few villagers smiling at you, acknowledging your presence.
i particularly like this photo!
it really shows us how this world can be so filled with love, laughter.
Life back in singapore
i miss the food definately! ate my char kway teow and hokkien mee. have been meeting Dawn as much as possible.
shopped alot, vivo vivo vivo! tml shop again! til date bought 2 polos, and 2 berms for school! all at discounted prices. im a poor student!
was a lil sad my hamster, amiga, passed away. oh well..left sushi! i think hamsters are quite cute!
started training for ippt. sigh sigh. must keep fit ahhhhhhhhh!
new year resolutions
keep fit! (nv seem to make it!)
study hard, smart! btw, i did well for my last sem! was shocked ! i was cycling to another village to give the mobile library. i went to the toilet to open the sms containing my results. so happy! well most pple in the team did well. tts good news! heaved a huge sigh of relief. hope this coming sem will be good, if not better! *crosses fingers*
be a loving bf! Thank you Dawn for supporting and encouraging me to go on this ocip. i’ll support you too!
spent more time with my family! eat more meals with them, talk more to them..
not sure if can go USA with Dawnie this june hols! hope it works out someway!
decided that i wont go SEP! if i go i’ll have to sacrifice my Industrial Attachment or waste my credits. sometimes i do really want to go! but my pocket is quite tight. tts alot of $$$$$$$!
might want to go work and travel after yr3. no plans yet!
sometimes, i wonder am i spending my time in my life time wisely? what am i suppose to pursue? knowing i’ll have support from D and my family is comforting.
cheers to a new yr.
