Wai Peng's wedding!

Finally a leave from the work in surgery~ muahaha took the 10.45 pm bus back to JB. Through the many experiences of taking night buses i was well prepared tackle the bitter cold of the bus. To ensure a fairly good nights rest~
1. Get a single seat (how to sleep with a snoring fat space snatcher next to you?
2. Keep ur extremities warm (tht means u've gotta get ur socks on)
3. Be kiasu (i brought a whole blanket just in case)
4. Wear warm clothing (duh~)
5. Block out the drone of the bus (plugged on some soothing Jay Chou mucis to lull me to sleep)
6. Avoid motion sickness (bring some maxolon or pack some sng buay)

Great trip back for me thnks very much to the trusty blanket.

What was all this preparation for u ask? Well to ensure i was nice fresh and ready for Wai Peng's wedding later that night at Peking restaurant the Sutera branch. It was posh, it was fun, food was great and company even better. Great wedding tht left me warm all over~

I've uploaded all the wedding pics here so those of u who are in the pics just click on the pics for a bigger version and download from here.Save me a lot of hassle. Kaka~

Everyone still looks exactly the same~albeit lots better at dressing

Yungx2 and Chen Looi relieving old times?

Group hug~

Yeon Jcin and Miao miao~ everyones working in spore!

The great thing bout Christian weddings are the excess of song and dance~this is one such dance in the middle of the dinner. Dancing girls in a chinese wedding dinner? definitely refreshing. The best part tho was when Wai Peng's mom sang a blessing song for her~i mean how often do u get tht?

Love Mun Fong's baju~ damn gaya and can keep warm too~

Best friends since ages and ages ago~

bamboo folliage~

The whole SETA gang! Wa lao still damn angry tht i din get to speak much or take individual pics with Wen Yih, Siaw Yen and Chun Hsia cos they were in the next table and left immediately after the group photo~Hmp~ next time must catch them before they *poof* disappear.

Silver maroon

More bamboo pics

Smiles all around

My captions are getting lame

Without flash

Finally the bride herself! Damn pretty~

The dress took up 3 ppl punya standing place

The clothes match

Wai Peng definitely looks the past of the blushing bride.. kaka but we''ll still always remember her has the short haired tomboy who always bruises herself back in sec school.

The end to a wonderful night

Two weddings down and 2 more to go (relative wan some more). Definitely wedding season now.

Poor sharks don't you think?

After every call i will feel like retching. Retching is like vomiting but without anything actually coming out from ur mouth. I always credit it to the lack of sleep. Usually i retch once or twice and feel fine again albeit a bit sleepy due to post call lack of sleep. Imagine my horror when i realized that i had to do EOD (every other day) on-calls and having a dinner to attend directly on the 2nd post call day~ Sien~ What appropriate timing. So far i have had the luxury of never having to do EOD calls.

Luckily, it was a 2nd call followed by a 4th call. In surgery 2nd calls means taking care of the female ward~ compared to my 1st calls , 2nd call was heaven~~ got to sleep up to 4 and a half hours. So great din feel tht tired the next day. My 4th call (basically going to OT for emergency cases as well as following the MO around if there were no emergency cases) was even better. muahaha 5 hours sleep with me only going for one operation due to the packed list for obs and gynae, orthopaedics and neurosurgical cases~

"So great.."i tell myself naively~ i'm ready to attend Su Wen's wedding~ So excited i already bought a new dress to wear a week before. The first thing that went wrong was me losing my foundation~ could not find it after i woke up at 6am in the hospital ~ what the~ did i leave it at home? or did someone come into my room and steal it.?? Granted my Maybelline liquid foundation was far from expensive~ but still~ who knows.

Anyway had to borrow some foundation from my house mate ~ thnks so much~

The wedding went on pretty well with JH , Shin Chee and I being seated among some friendly pharmacists.. then as we were approaching the 2nd last dish i started feeling queasy~

hmmm ... must be too much food i say to myself~ and strangely i was feeling really sleepy. My eyes were closing and i was practically "fishing" at the dinner table~ pai seh.

my stomach felt like it was exploding.


feel like retching ler.

But managed to tahan until the end of the dinner. Unfortunately (or fortunately depending on how u look at it) my friend wanted to stay back a bit for picture taking. So i went into the female toilet .. and started vomiting violently with gory vomiting noises and all. I must have traumatized a lot of innocent aunties, pharmacist and children waiting for their turn at the loo outside. The burning sensation of my gastric content traveling up my oesophagus plus the pain inflicted by the forceful contractions from my stomach and abdominal muscles to force the vomiting made me suffer like hell~

i did feel better after the vomiting tho~


glad thts over

I had to leave the restaurant and get some fresh air~

Nasib baik got to rest in Shin Chee's car a bit.

But then he told me Su Wen wanted to take pics with me.

Ok so i valiantly went into the restaurant again~ So great to see and speak to Su Wen again. her caring ways reminded me of sem 1 all over again. However in the midst of waiting for the cameraman to press the click button on the camera i felt an overwhelming wave of nausea overcoming me.

I pretended i was fine. Said my byes and immediately asked for the way to the ladies.

The f****** toilet was way over at the other end of the toilet. Plus i had to ask from a lot of bad tempered waitresses probably fuming over the big mess i made in the toilet upstairs. Not my fault okie~ no pipe for me to clean up my mess also. all i could do was flush.

Anyway~ this time it was worse.

Before i even made it to the toilet, i vomited twice on the floor. I was wiping the vommitous off my mouth when i reached the ladies to face a startled fellow toilet-goer turning around in shock at my ghastly sight.

Too engrossed in vomiting to care i quickly proceeded to enter a cubicle and projectile vomited a total of 6 times. Yes i counted in my sickly state. From my toilet cubicle i could hear disgruntled Cantonese babbling waitresses complaining about the mess i made outside. No i wasnt hallucinating from my toilet cubicle cos JH greeted me with a 'all the waitresses are complaining'. Walao i'm suffering ok? Next time u come to the hospital i complain bout ur vommitous and malaena want or not?

I hastily made a quick escape~ and proceeded home.

Suffered in a lethargic and cold state during the public breast forum the next day (yesterday) and proceeded to vomit 3 more times after taking minimal amounts of porridge.

Was in OT the whole day today ~ which was a blessing in disguise as it was so much more enjoyable than ward work~ And i ate without vomiting today~

Sorry for the verbal diarrhoea and gory details but its just something in life that i want to remember so everything else will just seem so fun and rosy in comparison.
