i am indeed. I know, i have been complaining much bout my tiredness, am I just being lazy, or maybe i'm having undiagnosed chronic fatigue syndrome, which no medication can actually helps:P After submitting our job aplication form last Fri, it was a big relief to all of us. But it marked the beginning of my next posting as well. So currently, am posted to North Manchester, for another 4 weeks. My daily routine is not as chillax as previous block. Waking up at 7am, catch a bus at 8am and reach hospital by 9am and start my day with ward round, followed by teachings, ward work with FY1 and hopefully home by 6pm IF am not stucked in the traffic! How am I supposed to study after that laaaa...the weather is so cold, the wind is so strong and I am knackered by the end of the day!!! *that's what I've got to endure, being abroad* Warning to those who are looking forward to study oversea:) Be prepared!
Glad that I managed to escape a few hours last Friday to surprise Joyce's 21st birthday. Meeting church mates are always jolly fun, because these youngsters are always in the bubbly-no-worries-mood, whereas aunty Angie is always the tired-busy-somuchtoworry-mood!Lol..Proudly present to you, my dear 'stalker' - SUREE! She is a Singaporean, currently studying in Manchester! How she found me was indeed God's beautiful plan! Before she came to UK, she did some research about where to stay, and thus she randomly googled about 'St Gabs Hall', the place i stayed for 2 years! And my blog popped up when she googled that. Naively, she read my blog and subsequently follows my updates. She even know LILY Chan though they've never met b4! TILL we finally met in church recently and yes, she is happily staying in Gabs! (Thanks to my good review in my blog previsouly! I should be paid for that..Lol)
Something to cheer up because my dear friend from Paris, sent me a postcard from where she is studying now...Provence:) Thanks Alice for the kind thoughts...Just love the lavender garden infront of the house in the postcard.
and it's always good to hang out with my dear 'family'. IT'S been ages since we last have dinner together! whee~
our fish and chips adventure with Shah and her bf! the fish is HUGE!..random notes aside. Love hanging out with my gurls:) Stress FREE!

And finally, i had a complementary relaxation therapy attachment last week and the tutor gave me a golden star, it's a squeezy ball to release stress! She taught me the breathing technique and gave me a 15mins foot massage! Just at the right time as I was pretty tense up with my application and studies. God sent definitely:)

Many things to give thanks for indeed.
Even coming home late to have Lily eating dinner with me is a blessing.

no complain. hang in there right, Angie.

wasSup Doc: I'm lacking confidence in myself, but am reminded that confidence in Christ is the right kind of confidence I need.

stress gilerrr..

yess, that's how i'm feeling now...Job application form for foundation programme was out last week. And we're all now felt extremely stress answering those questions given, based on our clinical experiences over the last 5 years, and the score we get out from this questions will determine where we're posted when we qualified later.....Though i know the outcome is under God's control, I do feel i've the responsibility to answer them well. Downside is, my English just CMI...*big sigh*! Alright, shall stay positive and positive and positive! ~POSITIVE thinking!!!!!~

Anyway, celebrated Siti's birthdat last Friday. A short gurly night out @ the LivingRoom:)

Attended an Acupuncture teaching session in Chritie last week, and i asked the Prof to put a needle on me..the position is a trigger point to act on my guts! Guess wat, i really had some funny feeling when he poked getting interested about this kinda of medicine...Lol. Thinking of signing up for a course on acupuncture now..random!

my first attempt on ABC soup....not that great compared to my grandma's...wat's the missing ingredients?! Hmmmm....maybe, a heart of L.O.V.E:)
ok, BENTO mood again! Started eating Pita bread instead of bread! To me, Pita=Manna! Lol...because it looks like the description i understand..Basically, Manna is the name of a food that God provided for the Isrealites during their travels in the desert as recorded in the bible. Reminder:: God will provide!

why am i soO happy?!

A friend asked me recently the question above...answer would be...because I'm Angelene, because am so loved by God and the people around me as well...:)))) Work in hospital kind of slow down abit compared to my previous posting. Doing a 4 weeks attachment in the Christie, one of the biggest cancer hospital across UK. We're supposed to gain as much knowledge about cancer throughout this 4 weeks...God is good to have me allocated with Dr Lee, my church member! Has been great ^_^Hah..surprises one after another made my day as well..Maybe God has already instored LOADS of stuff to cheer me daily including the kind souls to lavish me with gifts:)
Hosanna knew i love GREENTEA, so she gave me this set of green tea handcream and soap when she came back to Mcr from Abu Dhabi!! *touched indeed, because she took notice of this little fact about Angie*!
Steph recommended this 'Healthy Snack Box' to's FREE for the first box, delivered right to my doorstep with assorted nuts for snacktime:) No more sugar spiking muffins for tea..Lol!
Shahira bought us THESE kitKATs when she visited Japan last summer! *Happy daoo pengsan*! Really wanna visit Japan one day for the varieties of KitKat that they've got to offer!
Lily and Sis bought some bento accessories for me over last collection of bento is now quite impressive i must say. Thanks to my deariesS :)Though this arrived late from AUSSIE instead of Prague, dun worry Jeremy! Thanks for remembering to send me my favourite POSTCARD..Hehehe!!!
not to forget, CheaXin gave me these 2 sets of Lock&Lock tupperwareS when she came back from Brunei! Though I didnt get to go back home this summer, my dearies DID rmb me and brought me gifts! loved I am, right:) How can I not be happy when the ppl around me LOVE me so much!
Thank God for friends...who constantly rmb Angie! That makes a difference:)
I love God's invention of Technology toO, because of the ability to call/email to friends MILES away:) NiceEe.


AHHHHHHH.......KEVIN visited Manchester over this weekend! Poor boy had to take a 9 hours BUS ride from Aberdeen just to visit us:) Thank you! It's been 2 years since we last met! Seems uber LONG right, but oh wellie, we shall see when is out next meet up!Muakakakka....COME WORK IN NORTH WEST LAAAA. the MUST EAT:) ever famous DIMSUM! We had a feast, dont! Extra kg for this week! We both noticed smth..we looked like brother and sister in this pic! Hello lil bro^_^and the MUST TAKE snap shot in Chinatown with the arch:)

Thanks for the yummilicious SeaFooD PAELLA...*i'm salivating now just thinking about it* It was AWESOME! I shall demand for that AGAIN when we meet k!
Thanks Kev! Great seeing u again:) *smiley*

finally, a love gift from God. It was a surprise i must say. Remember the 11 weeks Paeds Audit project i did in my year 4 last June? yes, it has been ages ago, but recently I received an email from the Year 4 coordinator informing me that the panel has chosen me as one of the winners for the year 4 paeds oral presentation, organised by the Manchester Paeds Club! The prize is a 30 pound cheque! Not much money, but the joy is overwhelming. We weren't informed that there is going to be such prize when we did the presentations for our projects! If not, I'm sure most of us will put in MORE effort in doing the presentation. It must be God, giving me extra pocket money, and remind me about His faithfulness towards me. A friend once told me, when God wants to give you smth, there is always some way... mysterious but true..Lol!
So anyone of you who are in need of anything, START praying, you will never know how God can provide. Dun get me wrong, I didnt pray for's a lovely surprise from Him:)

so why I am happy all time?
God + Friends = L.O.V.E
