The second last night of 2011

Bohemian Rhapsody - A gift for humanity, for 2011 and for you.

Feeling like doing some reflections over the year…. but exams are looming, and my reflections are all over the floor (or blog) already =) Just thinking that many things had happened over this year, many first experiences that the Kee Onn just one year back in 2010 doesn’t even dare to imagine. Astronomy has gave me a life and took away my life. And thanks to MCKL’s 2 semesters, I feel like I’ve been through 2 years instead of 1. Weird huh. This year is also different as there is someone beside me to share my joys, happy and sad times, looking out for each other, as she made my days full with hope and energy. Oops. Yeah, she is none other than the awesome Joy :)

But still, anyway the wind blows….

Leap of Faith

Faith on the rope is all you need to take a plunge down 60m into a pool of water at World Bungy Patong, Phuket, Thailand.

A tomorrow with you

It has been a long journey.

It is a journey full of mountains and valleys, deserts and tundras.

It is a journey with no end in sight.

It is a journey where we are not even sure where are we heading to.

However,

It is a journey I am willing to take, because

It is a journey where as the sun sets, I know that

It is a journey in which I have another tomorrow with you.

Step by step

…is currently my life’s motto, and an essential motto to tackle the multitudes and multitudes of tasks piling up on this most stressful of all Decembers.

With university applications, final A-level exams, scholarship interviews all in this December – January period… Especially US Applications! If any of you who are reading this are planning to apply, I advise you to start as early as you can! Collecting the teacher’s recommendations and transcripts are harder than what you think is a few trips to the office and former schools… Especially in my small time Brickfields college. Sorry to say, but when I heard that Taylor’s lecturers do their recommendations online, I just had to say ‘what you pay is what you get’. Lol. Of course, for what you don’t pay you’ll have to use your own efforts, which are really not too bad as otherwise they’ll be spent sleeping anyway. In any case, start as early as possible.

My US university list worries me, not to mention the kind Ms.Choong over at University Placements. Do not underestimate the essay, it is something that the American high school students do months in advance. I just hope now that my readings and constant blogging might help a little during these trying times. Caltech, MIT, Stanford, Cornell, Texas A&M. I think I’m going crazy.

Not to mention backup plans… Well, like what I said just now, step by step. And there’s this weird Chinese saying that goes like ‘boats will naturally flow straight when reaching a bridge’ but it just means ‘all’s well ends well’. Hope the ancient wisdoms will be proven true to me too!
