I guess some of my friends already know the good news. Yes, the good news is that I am finally engaged. After 8 years and 2 months, ming and I have finally decided to settle down. hahaha... I admire ming's courage coz he probably was scared to death to propose, since I've always said to him that I don't want to get married. ^.~ Plus, with everyone that is getting engaged and married around us, it probably made him hesitant to do so. Nevertheless, it was a very special proposal. It could not have been any more special. I did not want to annouce it to people coz I'm shy mah. But people can ask ming, he should be the one telling. :) At this time, I'm just enjoying the feeling of being engaged. It's a weird but warm feeling. haha...

Today I thought of my grandfather. To me, I have only 1 grandparent, and that is my grandfather in Shih-Lin. He is the only grandparent whom I've known. He was someone who I looked up to because he has achieved so much in his life. If you google him up (his name is 吳振蘭) on google.com/tw, you would find several hits about him. Febuary is a bitter sweet month for me. Every year close to Valentine's day, I would wake up from my sleep crying. Because my grandfather passed away on Valentine's day. I am not making this up. I've learned that he is now in heaven with God and has no worries like us, the vain human beings. I miss him very much. I still remember when I was very little, he once rescued me from the toilet bowl that I've fallen into. I was crying and he said to me "why are you crying? just get up ah." Then he pulled me up with his big warm hands. This may sound like a very miniacture event, but it imprinted on my mind for life. He taught me not to cry for stupid things like that. He did not allow me to cry coz he rescued me right away. That is why I hate men for not putting down the toilet seat now, coz I will fall into the bowl if it is not down. I'm glad that I'm with a man who does put the seat down for the ladies. Thanks ming. ^^

Since I've received the news of this patient of mine whom I took care of had passed away 2 days ago, he is all I've been thinking about. I don't know why he has brought so much thought upon me, coz there has been many many other patients whom I also took care of and have passed away and I have not thought of them as much as this little guy. Plus the fact that I only took care of him for 2 days whereas others I might have taken care of them for many many days. This guy was barely conversable, because even if he was healthy, he wouldn't be able to, and on top of that he was very very sick. I am very sorry that he wasn't getting better care while he was with us, but I think I did the best I could to look after him. I never knew him before he got sick but I know he was a very special one.
Good thing that I had a very very cute 5 months old baby yesterday and the day before that I got to spend time with alone to take my mind off the sad news (coz his mom wasn't there). He is the cutest thing ever. He only cries when he is hungry or when he has poopy diaper. After he was fed, I would wrap him up and put on the TV for him to watch (mostly the Canadian Olympic games, coz I wanted to see it myself), and he would actually follow the show!!! He was soooo adorable, that I fell in love with him right away. My motherly nature would arise only when I meet such good baby. :) I think if it weren't because I am still single, I would have had a baby myself already.

So who has joined the circle of blogger? Me, ming, Lawei, Helen, and Ying-Hsu. Looks like everyone is doing a good job at keeping at least 1 diary per 2 days, except ming! I knew that he would be the first to drop out of this. Stop reading those One Piece comics online, then you'll have time to blog, ming~~~

I watched an episode of 美麗藝能界 today. They were talking about how to get brand name products at good prices. So they talked about 2nd hand stores and outlets and stuff. At the end of the show, Annie the host talked about fake products. The general public like myself know that buying fake products is not a good thing, but I never realize there is a very prominent reason. She described the labour behind fake products in country like Vietnam and Thailand are mostly children who are abused and put under horrendous working conditions. She mentioned some brand name companies discovered these children were working in enviornments that are harmful to their health; some factory owner would not provide these children food unless they finish their work, and some even chop off their legs if they try to run away so they wouldn't do it again. I understand that people should not buy fake stuff, but I was also thinking, so what if these children had nothing else to do other than working in these fake product factories? Their government would not look after them anyways, so maybe they would just die without any food.

If you are a woman, you would understand the pain of the "monthly business." Today I decided to take control of my life, as I used to just lie in bed all day as the pain is so intolerable. So I took extra-strength Advil before lunch. 10 minutes into my lunch, I felt this sudden onset of heat, sweat was coming down on my forehead, I felt dizzy, and I thought I was gonna faint. Ming, now I know how you felt when you passed out when receiving acupuncture by that Chinese doctor. It is quite a scary feeling. This happened coz we were both empty stomached and took on pain relief, so our bodies suddenly "collapsed." Conclusion, don't ever do that, ever, my friends.

Today was another non-eventful day, or shall I say a wasted day? What is the purpose of life I wonder.... Only people who are too bored has time to think about stuff like this. Therefore I do not know how the hell did ming have time to draw this "life map." He is the busiest guy I know in the world....

So many of my friends are getting married. I am so happy for them. Sadly, I think about myself and how pathetic my life is. I am a 27 year old single woman, who has yet to accomplish anything in my life. I am stuck at a stage in life that I don't want to move on nor do I have the option of turning back. This is probably PMS talk right here....

As i was reading ming and lance's blogs at this location, i had to respond to their blogs. And in order to do that, i had to sign up as a member. I was thinking in my head, "do i want another blog page?" It's like having a diary and then buys another one. But as you may know, i am probably the person who has the most free time in the world, that's why this blog was even borned.
