Ip Man 2...and a little bit of a social life...

The past week has actually been quite a free week for me...it wasn't an OT week...and i wasn't on call for a whole 5 days....but i've been quite distracted...you know what they say about you can't run away from your past? it's true...you can't...your past will come back to haunt you and may just well ruin your future...is there any way one can run away from one's past and start life anew?

Anyway, this hermit was having a little bit of social life the past week....Monday night was GA department's farewell dinner for 2 of my former bosses...they are moving on to greener pastures i.e. going to private service...Kean Khang invited me to go so i was the only surgical person there...and i actually met one of my current boss at the restaurant...he was having dinner there as well...dang!! got caught...

Wednesday night i had dinner with Eric...but before that i had to go grocery shopping for my boss...we were organizing a basic surgical skill workshop for the housemen on Friday and Saturday...so he asked me to buy apples, pears, honeydew melon and plastic wrappers...the stuffs were quite heavy and i had to carry them on my own...anyway, dinner with Eric was at this Korean restaurant at Warisan Square...not sure if we were supposed to half the bill...but i kind of assume he was treating since he invited me for dinner...hehe...this hermit has poor social etiquette...

Then Thursday night was movie night....watched Ip Man 2 with Eric, Becky and Nora in 1B...after watching the movie, i felt very patriotic...and racist...it's one of those movies where you feel like standing up and clapping your hands as the credit rolls...if you're going for the storyline, then you'd be disappointed...coz it's pretty much the same as the first installment...they replaced a Japanese nemesis with an airhead English brute of a boxer...but the movie is about Ip Man after all...so who cares about the storyline? Donnie Yen as Ip Man totally beat Robert Pattinson as Edward Cullen anyday....I just love the way Donnie Yen fights...he's so graceful it's almost as if he was dancing instead of fighting...nothing brutish...and yet so powerful...

Friday night i was at church attending the opening of the Cutting Edge conference...i'm glad i went despite myself...coz the things that Pastor Sam spoke about really struck a raw chord...he said that we should be angry...at the atrocious wrong doings that are happening around us...and when we're angry, then we should take action to stand up against all these wrong doings...something that Pastor Sam said really spoke to me...he said that the things that God wants us to contend for, we are contented with...the things that God wants us to be contented with, we contend for...i realized how true that is in my life...and God must be so sad when He looks at my life...

I was on call yesterday...yes, labouring on labour day...shall not complain about how tiring it was...i'm just glad i still made it to church this morning..albeit an hour late...was supposed to watch IronMan 2 this afternoon but after lunch with Flora and Elaine at the Manhattan Fish Market, i came home and slept till almost dinner time...i think today is the 'drop your stuffs' day...my front car plate fell off while i was driving back from 1B...saw another car plate on the road along the way...and saw a shoe on the road just before i reach home...

Dang! now i have to drive without my car plate...need to pick Jasmine up from the airport...hopefully won't get stopped by the police...not sure when i'll have time to get a new one fixed...oh well...one day at a time...one day at a time...
